Happy (kinda) Anniversary!

Three years ago today was my first date with my sweetheart. It was oh sooo exciting, starting off with ice skating with my best friend (everyone else bailed out last minute), then off to a family birthday party (yeah, on the first "date"), then back to his parents house to watch the Jazz game (oh what fun...), and then a whole late night of talking on the couch (where he kissed me first! I know, kissed me on the first date, what kinda girl did he think I was!). I saw him every single day after that first date, until after we got married. It was perfect.
In the last three years, we've lived in three places, bought a house, gone to Scipio at least 6 times, built and sewed almost everything we own, gotten a puppy, the list goes on and on. And now we're having a baby :)

Thank you lover for making these three years so awesome! Couldn't be happy without you!

May flowers

We planted our front garden this year. After ripping the old plants out (they were mostly dead), we added a bunch of dirt to mound the area, cut out the sod so that it was curvy, and added sprinklers. Then we planted, planted, planted! It was so much work, and took our whole Saturday up, but it looks so much better now.
And if that wasn't enough, we decided on the next Saturday to extend the garden in the front to wrap the whole front yard, not just the house :) So there was another Saturday full of removing grass, adding sprinklers, shoveling and mounding dirt, and planting! It looks so pretty now, and as one girl in our class said "our yard is the nicest in the whole circle!" (and that's saying a lot!)

It's a Boy!

Here's the little guy! Doctor and ultrasound tech said everything looks good! The gal doing the ultrasound said that he's VERY active (yikes, already?) and has long feet :) Surprise, surprise!
This is Wyatt at 18 weeks 1 day, but they said his skull and leg length are measuring a week and a half further along, but my due date hasn't been moved up yet.
We almost didn't get to find out the sex on Monday! He was being stubborn, keeping his leg together, and facing towards me rather then out. So they got GREAT pictures of his spine. Luckily, our U/S tech was determined to find out, so she FINALLY let me go to the bathroom (after drinking 32 oz of water before the ultrasound) and by the time I went and came back, he had flipped around! Yes! Then we just had to get him to open up those legs. So with me, her, and Adam pushing my stomach, he finally fluttered them open long enough to show the goods! We were both betting on a girl, so when she said Boy, it caught us both off guard. But we are so excited to start planning for a little man and getting everything ready for his grand arrival in the fall!

Oh, and on a side note, I felt him kick me for the first time last Wednesday, April 28. I was laying almost on my stomach in bed, not wanting to get out of bed yet, when he pounded me! No flutterings, no butterflies, but a really strong kick. He's been beating on me every day since then. And Adam felt him kick last night! He was moving around, so I grabbed Adam's hand (we were sitting on the couch watching the Jazz) and pushed in, hoping that if we pushed, he'd kick back. It took about 20 seconds and then Pow! Adam looked at me in surprise because he had kicked HARD! I'm glad he made himself know to his Daddy, it's so fun being able to share it with him :)
