In October we sent my little brother Quincy off on an LDS mission (something that was another three years in the making!). In December we told our family about our bundle of joy and found out January 7th that he was a BOY. It was hard working full time going to school full time and taking calculus and statistics at the same time as morning sickness and being tired but I loved every minute of it. I decided a long time ago that the last thing I was gonna do it want and pray for something for so long and then turn around and complain about it. In January I accidentally totaled our Nissa on the freeway and we laid her to rest a week later. It was sad but no one got hurt so no real complaints.
On January 29th I turned 25! Which still weirds me out. I woke up to breakfast in bed, a clean kitchen, and a counter of flowers balloons and presents. (notice the hostess cupcakes? I am obsessed with them. Ethan loves me enough to buy them for me and then hide and ration them out so I do not eat my body weight in them. He stays strong despite my temper tantrums)
Ethan and I are now in our last full semester of school and will walk April 27th. I has been a long road to get our degrees but worth it, or at least everyone keeps telling me it will be. Our little boy is due June 5th and time seems to be flying by. I was sad that my parents will not be here to be grand parents to my son but was overwhelmed about the love and excitement that everyone has shown me about this baby. I feel like there are people who are more excited then we are! For now it is just school and work and school and work but we are happy and content.
17 weeks Christmas day
We had the ultra sound tech put the result in an envelope and took it to a cup cake shop. If it was a girl the attendant had to put pink cupcakes in the box and blue for a boy.
We waited until we got home and called Ethan's parents on Facetime so they could be apart of it. Ethan was ecstatic that it was a boy... he walked around the house singing "Oh Boy Oh Boy its a Boy its a Boy" and has made plans for him and the little man for the next 7 years.
