There Really IS a Baby in There!

I went to the doctor today and Ryan and I got to see our baby! This picture is kind of hard to see on the screen but I am still really excited about it. I am twelve weeks along and my due date is April 2. I really hope I don't have an April Fools Day baby but I won't complain if it comes a little early. If you can't tell, the baby is laying on it's back. It's huge head is on the left and it's bottom is on the right. We also got to see it's little heartbeat. It reminded me a little bit of ET when he gets sad and his heart glows through his body and flutters a lot. It was still really fun though! Yay! for the first time I really believe that I am carrying a real, live baby.

It's Been a While . . .

Well, I'm sorry that I haven't updated out blog in a long time and I really hope we haven't completely lost all of our readers due to my neglect. I believe I have a good excuse as it has been an incredibly busy month. Even if you don't agree, I hope that I can at least redeem myself by updating with lots of really fun news.


On July 18 Ryan and I graduated from BYU-Idaho. My whole family came to visit and Ryan's sister Janelle came from Arizona with her five kids. We had such a blast seeing everyone. We feel so blessed to have such wonderful support from our family. It was a very special occasion for us and one that we worked really hard to achieve.

Moving to Utah

The first weekend of August we moved from Rexburg to Bountiful, Utah, about three hours away. We are in Bountiful because I am doing my student teaching at Bountiful High School. we found a nice apartment here and so far we really like the area although we really don't know anyone around here yet. I have friends that live in Salt Lake and Provo but we don't get to see them that often. We will only be in Utah for about a year then we will be moving again. Gee, I can't wait. Ryan is looking for a job and will hopefully find one soon!

The BIG news

About a week after we moved to Utah we found out that we are going to have a baby! I think I am due around the beginning of April and we are so excited. I haven't been too sick but I have been REALLY tired.

Student Teaching

I started teaching in the Drama department at Bountiful High School a few weeks ago. So far I really like it. I am teaching the beginning and advanced drama classes and will also be helping with the stage crew class later in the semester. My only complaint is that school starts at 7:30 in the morning. I forgot high school started so early!
