32 weeks

So we can keep the family updated on my growing body...

Here I Am!!!

For the rest of you who don't care to see my protruding belly, I'm sorry but this is the easiest way to update all the family and friends who want to see.

I am feeling good, just really big! He loves my ribs, especially on the right side and he loves to squirm at night while his dad likes to rub my belly like he thinks a genie is going to hop out and grant him 3 wishes! We'll see if that ever happens!

I get tired and hot super easily, which is weird because I used to be freezing cold all the time! I can't complain though because I can stay inside our air conditioned apartment all day, and I do! We do try to go on walks every day and let's just say 100 degrees in Maryland is a lot different than 100 degrees anywhere else I've lived! My body is going to take a while to get accustomed to this humidity because every time I walk outside I feel like I can't breathe!
We are excited to have him come into our family though and grateful for the opportunity to be parents. The time seems to pass slowly but that is good considering we have so much to do before he gets here in September! We are working on it though, I promise!

Until then, Nate will keep rubbing my belly hoping for that genie! In the end I'm sure he will settle for a baby boy even if he doesn't get his three wishes!



This quote is AMAZING! We discussed this and another quote from C.S. Lewis for our family home evening on Monday and it was definitely what I needed to hear! It applied so much to many of the things that have been on my mind lately!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

"…Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on: you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently he starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of — throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were going to be made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself."

Not just a palace though, a temple! 


My Favorite Guy

I really miss my favorite guy right now!

He is only the best ever and I am only the luckiest lady in the universe! Really, not kidding!

Maryland hasn't been the easiest adjustment for me and well, it's been really overwhelming at times! I was pretty emotional and even grumpy the first week we got there but Nate put up with me.

He is patient. He is kind. He is forgiving. He is loving. He is all these things and more!
Not to mention, he's pretty darn cute!

Taken in June when we had family pictures with my family!

He let me come to Idaho for two weeks and he stayed in Maryland to work and unpack. It's been nice to get away but I miss him like crazy! I always do!

I can't wait to seem him next Tuesday!

I love you babe, more than you will ever know! Me and your little boy miss you lots!
