Just some Updates...

Life is wonderful and unexpected sometimes. A month ago, we had everything figured out. I was going to graduate and be done with school BEFORE the baby comes, Drew was going to continue to work like a maniac and finish this December, THEN we were going to move to Pocatello and start our adventure outside of Rexburg. But things have changed! We are now moving to Pocatello the first week in April! We found a cute one bedroom apartment that we are going to live in for the next 4 months while I do an internship and Drew works  his cute bum off. We decided to take a semester off of school and earn money for when the baby comes instead of getting into more debt. After praying about this, we both feel really calm and peaceful about it. Drew and I both will graduate April of 2013. Even though this means staying in Rexburg longer than planned... we both know it is what we are supposed to be doing right now. :)

School has been going great and is really busy for both Drew and I. Luckily, we are ALMOST DONE! Only one more week.. and then it is finals week! I have had a really fun semester working at a local elementary school helping run their afterschool program. We have about 60-70 kids total in the program. I have gotten to know just about all of them and it has just reaffirmed my love for children. I can't wait to have one of my own and be a mommy to one of God's precious spirits! Drew also has been busy this semester he actually developed a 3 part workshop on how to strengthen your relationship by improving communication and creating an emotional connection. He put so much work into it and it ended up being a very well put together workshop { and his professor only had positive things to say about it, which is also a plus!}.

Baby Update! I have been feeling super great lately! I am now over 16 weeks pregnant and can't go one night without dreaming about our little one. The gender changes each night, so I don't even have a guess as to what we are actually having. The exciting thing is hopefully we will get to find out very soon! Doctors up here in Rexburg like to wait until you are about 20 weeks. {Even though they could probably tell us now, if they looked}. Drew and I are extremely excited to find out! Each time we go to the store, I walk straight to the baby section and look at car seats and clothes. Drew says because we don't know if we are having a boy or a girl yet, we should wait to buy clothes. But he did tell me that the week we find out, we can go buy and outfit or two! WOOHOO! This will definitely be my weakness this summer. {adorable baby clothes!}. Thats about all that is happening in our lives right now. Enjoy this Baby Bump update (definitely getting bigger!)
16.5 Weeks!

16.5 Weeks!


  1. You are so cute with your baby bump!! So excited for you too, you are gonna be such a good mommy.

  2. Most drs. wait until around the 20 week mark anyways, gives baby more time to grow, then there is a little bit of a better chance that you'll get an accurate gender. Though with girls they'll never give you a 100% positive. We had friends that told us to buy something gender neutral when we went to the store, starting with when we started trying for Christian, then all the small baby purchases are spread out over several months and not all at once. Like bath soap, diapers, white onesies, and really even the carseat it probably a better money deal if it's gender neutral too (then if you have a girl this time, next time if it's a boy he's not riding in a flowery pink carseat :) ) We are so excited for you guys though! I'll bet if you haven't felt the baby yet, you are days away, which is super exciting!
