Well since I havn't officially announced it over the blog here we go... WE ARE PREGNANT!!! Okay now that it's out in the open haha...we found out on January 11th that we are having a healthy baby girl. Our first little princess!!! Before we found out what we were having, I decided to prepare Matt that we might be having a girl (because he was 99% sure we were having a boy). So, I decided to just pretend it was a girl and say it was a girl all the time haha. Funny thing is, I think it still shocked him when the nurse said that the baby is definatley a girl. Although it took him a little bit to get used to the idea of having a little girl, he is definatly really excited about our little princess!
The first trimester wasn't all that bad. I started taking prenatal vitamins but soon figured out that it wasn't the little gummy bear in my belly that was making me nauseous...it was the vitamins! So once I stopped taking those I only felt sick every once in awhile. It took a while to really feel like I was pregnant. The one thing that gave it away was when I started to get tired all the time.
At 16 weeks I felt the little one move, I was so excited and wanted Matt to feel her but of course he couldn't just yet. Finally at 17 weeks and 6 days Matt got to feel her. He has felt her a lot now and I love having him feel her kick and punch. I am just amazed at how strong she is already and I love him feeling it too!
By 16 weeks I could no longer fit in normal jeans (which meant...it's time to bring out the stretchy-band jeans and flowy shirts!). Well I am now 21 weeks and 5 days along and I am getting larger everyday. The last few weeks I have had very itchy skin which I am not a fan of at all. I have been losing my breath really easily (kind of embarrassing) and sometimes I feel like I waddle.
Just a few things I love right now are: having Matt touch my belly just to touch it, having Matt feel her kick, having a little belly that my husband loves, feeling her move and kick around, and I absolutely love how much we love and are attached to our little princess already and we haven't even met her yet. We love being pregnant and we are very excited that our family will be welcoming a new addition in June!!!

We headed back to Cali for Thanksgiving! It was a much needed break from school and the cold weather. We got there very early Saturday morning because it took us 3 and a half hours to get over Donner Pass going 30 MPH with chains on. We got to my parents house went straight to bed only to be awakened by my family a few hours later while my dad was making apple pancakes which were delicious! Up until Thanksgiving day we really didn't do much but relax which was perfect for us. Thanksgiving day was so much fun and me and Matt were both very excited about the Thanksgiving food (we have been craving for a few weeks by this point) haha. Here are some pictures of some if the events!
|Here is one of the activities of the week. In my parents back yard a huge tree fell down so the job was to cut it apart and drag everything to the firepit. This picture is of Brian handling the chain saw.|
|Here is Matt getting to use the second biggest chain saw in the world. He was so proud of himself getting to cut the big trunk of the tree!|
|Then we couldn't keep in out of the mud hahah|
|Matt and I after the game|
|My dad getting the turkey ready|
|I was so excited to meet little Max (Gin and Jasons newest little member)|
|Carter finally letting grandpa hold him for longer than a second... I wonder why....|
