Tomorrow there will be 3!













So tonight is the night before I get induced and soon we'll be a family of 3! I can't believe it! Jake and I are so excited and so glad to be done waiting. It's an interesting feeling knowing that there were a lot of "last times" for us today...and tomorrow will be filled with so many firsts! Babies are such a miracle and we're so grateful for this blessing in our lives. Today was a fun day because we were able to get some things done before tomorrow and tonight we dyed easter eggs. Jake was a good sport and just went along with my need for holiday tradition. I'm excited to have a little girl to dye easter eggs with next year!

Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

So I'm officially overdue! I really didn't think I would have to wait this long. I'm only a few days overdue but when you've waited 9 months already, everyday feels like an eternity. I have tried everything to get her here! I even drank castor oil! I'm so desperate! It was disgusting but I just had to try it. Even though Jake and I are so excited for her to be here, we keep reminding ourselves that it's in the Lord's hands and if she's not ready, she's not ready. I was supposed to have a doctor's appointment today to talk about getting induced and they called 15 minutes before and had to reschedule. I was dissappointed but luckily I get to go in tomorrow. We'll see what he says!!

From that...to this!

From that...to this!
Last April I had long blond hair and I could see my hip bones, and in less than 365 days I now have short dark hair and can't even see my feet let alone hip bones!

Dinosaur Bones

Dinosaur Bones
When my mom was pregnant with my little brother Ethan, she showed us the ultrasound picture and my other little brother Bennett was pretty certain it was a picture of dinosaur bones. So here she is, our cute pile of dinosaur bones!! Hopefully she's as cute in real life as she is here!

The best money we ever spent!

The best money we ever spent!
It's been really fun buying stuff for the baby on the way, Jake has especially had fun setting up all the new gadgets that bounce, swing, and sing! We have no room left in our tiny one room apartment but it's all worth it! I'm just hoping she really is a girl because I don't know what we'll do with all this pink stuff if she turns out to be a boy!

Diaper Cake

Diaper Cake
On February 14th my mom, grandma, and sister threw me an awesome baby shower back home in Colorado. It was kind of ironic that the same weekend last year they were throwing me a bridal shower. Anyway, my mom and sister Meredith made me the cutest diaper cake I've ever seen!!

A lovely little sinus infection...

A lovely little sinus infection...
So despite all the other wierd little things that go wrong with me, I never get sick! But for some reason when I went home to Colorado, I got the worst sinus infection I've had in so long! Being pregnant I can't take any medication so I had to resort to..well just take a look!
