a funny

tonight Josh and I stopped to pick up a pizza for dinner and when Josh got back in the car with it he handed the pizza to me- just like usual. This time though, I couldn't get the pizza to my lap. There wasn't enough room between my big belly and the dashboard for it to go down onto my lap. I couldn't reach down to adjust the seat so we drove home with the pizza precariously balanced between my belly and the dash.

Apparently it's been a while since we've gotten pizza- but I thought it was funny.

Mixed Feelings

I've had some interesting feelings the last couple days. Like I'm ready for things, yet at the same time- defiantly not. Here are some examples:

- I am so excited to have this baby, I feel like I could be ready right now- yet I have no desire to finish packing for the hospital or go to the store for the last couple things we need before the baby comes to us.

- I am so looking forward to Josh's graduation and getting things together for that is exciting to me- getting my finals all set; that I have no motivation to do.

- I want Spring to be here so bad and I think an Easter baby would be great- but I don't feel like getting the things for Josh's Easter basket or anything else similarly related.

It's like I want all these things to happen and just go smoothly without having to do the work to prepare. And I guess it's all part of an overall feeling of confliction- I want the baby to come early so I don't have to reschedule my finals therefore I have no desire to reschedule them, but I'm not sure I want the baby to come too early because I don't know if I am quite ready yet so that's why I'm not finishing getting ready.

I guess I just don't know how I feel except unmotivated.

Most wonderful suprise

Yay! My most wonderful surprise. Krista came to see me! I was so shocked when I happened upon her at my grandma's house Wednesday morning. I did awful at taking pictures of the time I had with her but here is a little of her handiwork- getting my house ready for baby! I couldn't have done it without her. I feel like now I could be ready to have this baby (except for the whole finishing the semester thing). Anyway- I'm glad she's coming back again soon because I miss her already. I had such a fun week. Thank you Krista!
This picture is mostly to show off a day that my hair looked good. I'm thinking I like the curly look. I'll have to figure out a good way to do it.

Finally- pictures of our new car. Even though it is kind of hard to tell, this first picture is to show: we have put in the carseat (complete with the stuffed frog that has no other home). We still haven't driven it much because we just got our insurance on it- Josh drove it a few days this week when I was out and about with Krista in the other car. Hopefully we will start getting used to this one soon.

(Also, notice the lack of snow! I am so excited for Spring and the great weather that we have been having- hopefully it stays)

I figure every once in a while I should keep some kind of record of how everything is going.

Ok, so I am almost 37 weeks along. It's crazy to think that this baby is so close to being here. Josh and I are really hoping for this baby to come either on it's due date (April 2) or on Easter (April 4) just because we are trying to keep all our school things under control.

It's interesting because I want the baby to come, I am so excited and it just feels like it is getting close to the right time. But at the same time, I am not ready yet because I haven't finished up my classes for the semester.

Overall- I like being pregnant. I had very few complaints up until a couple weeks ago when it became harder to bend down, harder to walk, and harder to get comfortable at night. Other than those things I still like it though.

Because we don't know the gender and we don't have names picked out sometimes it's hard to imagine actually having a baby. Occasionally I look in the mirror at my huge self and think "when did this biggness happen?"

Baby- we are so excited to have you in our lives. We love you already and are so glad you are coming to our family.

some happenings

So it was recently Josh's birthday. He turned 23. I hope he had a good day- here he is with some of his gifts. We also went out to eat at Red Robin and had the most delicious Reese's Cake that I got from my cousin Kendra's blog
This I meant to post last week, but never got around to uploading the picture to go with it. Last week at church I got so many comments about my baby. At least two of them were "you're finally showing" Yes, I am bigger- but I kind of thought I've been showing for awhile. I think it must be because I teach the 8 year olds so lots of the women at church don't really see much of me. But anyway- down to a month left. I am getting pretty excited.
This picture and the one below are just some silliness I forgot we had taken pictures of. I saw them as I was getting the other pics for this post and I liked them.

This was part of my Valentine's day thing I did for Josh but I just wanted to put the picture because it is a super good picture of him.

Also, new in our lives. We bought a car! It worked great... the day we bought it. Two days later we tried to start it and it wouldn't start. It sat in front of our house for a week because we didn't know what to do and after looking at some things his dad cleaned the spark plugs up and now it works again. We got it registered today and so I think we are good to go now. We are pretty excited, it has more backseat room (carseat room) than our other car but is still a little car. It doesn't have very many miles on it and seems like it will be a good car. Some day I'll have a picture of it, maybe.
