~Baby Girl~

I haven't blogged in a very long time. Most of that is just due to laziness. But it's also because for the first 3-4 months of this year I wasn't feeling the best, and really didn't do much of anything. In February, Wayne and I found out that we're expecting! I hadn't been feeling very good, and we had been trying, so we figured that had to be it. We were right!
I'm now 21 weeks along, due October 9th. We found out at our last doctor's appointment that we are having a little girl :) We're very excited! Wayne still thinks it might turn out to be a boy, but I'm pretty sure it's a girl. I had the nurse check a couple times just to be sure.

This is our little girl sucking on her thumb :) I've started feeling her move around. It's just little movements, but I love feeling her kick, or poke, or whatever she's doing. I can't wait to see her, and play with her, and see her smile. My belly's getting bigger everyday, and none of my regular pants fit me anymore. But it's worth it. Here I am at 15 and 20 weeks.

We are nervous, but so excited for this new phase in our lives. We can't wait to see our little girl!

True Love

Marriage Getaway

As I mentioned before, all of my married siblings went with Wayne and I up to Aspen Grove this last weekend for a "Marriage Getaway." My parents went to the same thing last year and were impressed with the experience enough that they paid for all of us to go. It really was a lot of fun! There were different activities that we could do in our free time. They fed us dinner Friday night, and breakfast and lunch on Saturday. The main event though was seminars by Brad Wilcox. He is LDS, a professor at BYU, and he speaks all over the place on different topics. He spoke to us about relationships, parenting, having a sense of humor about life, and then he spoke to us about the Atonement. He was amazing! He's an excellent speaker, but he's also very entertaining, so it's easy to listen to what he has to say. Overall it was a very good experience. It was wonderful to be there with my family, and of course to be there with Wayne. Oh, how I love him!

I don't usually like snow, but it really was beautiful up in the mountains. Especially when the sun came up.

This last week for our date we went ice skating. It was more fun than I remember ice skating being the last time I went. I guess it helps that I was with my husband, instead of all the young women in my ward back home. Wayne took quite the fall. It was the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. He wasn't hurt too bad, so I didn't feel too bad laughing as hard as I did. Unfortunately I didn't get it on camera, or I would put it up.

Since I last posted, Mollie and Aislinn both had their babies. Mollie had Max on Jan. 23. Aislinn had Peter on Jan. 28. He was a week late so he weighed nine pounds! Big baby! They sure are cute!
We got one of Max with both eyes open! He usually has this one eye open, one eye closed thing going on.

Here's the two together :) I haven't figured out how to rotate the pictures on here. Sorry! But aren't they so cute!
This weekend we're going on a marriage getaway with all the married siblings in my family. It's at Aspen Grove. So I'll post about that next week!

Apparently I just have to have faster internet to upload pictures. Like the internet in the library. This is one of my favorites :)

For some reason I can't upload photos to my blog. I don't know why. I've just come to the conclusion that computers hate me. So that's why I haven't blogged in forever. I'll try and figure it out. But the blogging might be kind of scarce until then.

Christmas Break in Review

The last year has been amazing! I met, fell in love with, and married my best friend. That was definitely the highlight of my year.
But, a lot of exciting events have taken place in 2012. I finished school (all but one credit. Long story.) Both of my sisters and sister-in-law announced that they would be having babies in 2013, I finished my time on the Institute council and I am so grateful for the blessing it was in my life.
Anyway, 2012 was a great year, and I'm looking forward to many more with Wayne! We managed to avoid the flu until we got back home to Ephraim. A sick husband is no fun. But at least it's before classes have started. That's good I guess. These pics are from our Christmas break. Sorry some of them are blurry.
Temple Square with the fam.

 Playing the Wii

 Sledding (my camera died so I only got one picture)
Wayne got me 3 goldfish for Christmas! The first one died a couple days later (it's down in the corner) and the other died within the week after Christmas. Pretty sad. So we bought a beta fish :)
His name is Chief.

We spent New Year's with everyone at Mom and Dad's house.


 Watching "How to Train Your Dragon"

We played games and ate a lot of food.
                                                                                          Perudo is the worst game ever...
 Confetti at midnight.

 When we got back to Ephraim we found massive icicles on our apartment building.

We had fun with family, and we got to Skype with family in Oregon. Overall, it was a wonderful break :)
