What's Going On & A Surprise to Some

This week has flown by!! It's been almost 3 weeks since my last post...oops! On Monday, Dustin and I watch Britten while my sister worked out. She is an absolute doll. I would change a thousand dirty diapers to hang out with this girl. Wednesday, I taught the 2 & 3 year olds at church. They absolutely crack me up. It's such a fun age, and they say the funniest things. I had one little boy (I won't mention who) that told me if he didn't go to the bathroom right now, he was going to poop his pants. It was so hard for me not to laugh at him!! Then last night, we watched our other niece Mikaela. She'll be three in May. She is so smart and funny, and talk about attitude. She's got the eye roll down!!

All of this baby/kid time this week I guess will help prepare us for parenthood. Our little one will be arriving around October 20. That's right...WE'RE PREGNANT!!!! I am 11 weeks to be exact. We've had two sonograms, and the peaunt is right on track. I have felt pretty crummy, but that's a good sign. I never thought I would thank God after throwing up, but if it means a low risk for miscarriage, then I'm fine with it! We are very excited and feel very blessed. We go back in a week to hear the heartbeat. We've seen it twice, but we haven't heard it. I think this will be an amazing experience. For all of you who have known, thanks for your prayers. They mean so much to us!

Yard Work with my Honey

Dustin and I went flower shopping on Saturday afternoon. We got lots of flowers and our first tree!! Dustin worked very hard yesterday digging a giant hole and planting the tree. Today, the dust couldn't keep us away! We planted all the flowers. I am so excited!!! It was a lot of fun for us to spend time together. My favorite is the purple and yellow flowers - it's a type of pansy. We also got petunia's and some plants (forgot the name) to line the back of the flower bed. It all looks great!
