It's A BOY!!!

Well I just got back from my doctor's appointment a couple hours ago and we found out that we are having a boy!!! We are so incredibly excited because I always wanted a boy first to be the big brother to the rest of our kids. The ultrasound was so cool. We were able to see his hands and feet and we got to see him yawn, which was pretty cool. We also got a picture of him basically folded in half...his legs were up by his head, it was pretty funny. It's so amazing how fast they grow. He is just over 1 1/2 pounds and he's measuring about a week ahead, so hopefully I'll get lucky and he'll be early. I don't have a way to put the ultrasound pictures on here yet, but we are getting a scanner soon, so we'll see!

Well yesterday was the first day of Summer Semester and I'm still wearing my winter coats!! All the other summers that I've been here, it's been getting warmer and was usually around 50 or 60 degrees this time of year. But no, this year it's still in the 30's in the morning and maybe gets up to 40 degrees by the afternoon. Oh well, the time will come I guess and then it will be so hot that I'll wish it was cooler again. Funny how that is huh?!

I'm taking five classes this semester although four of them are my Supply Chain Emphasis classes. I'm pretty excited to get into those. There are only 10 people in the class, including me which is nice but also kind of weird! I've never been in a college class with less than like 30 people!! It should be good though because then we can get more one on one time with the teacher and get to know everybody really well. I'm also taking a Child Development class which should be interesting as well.

After this semester I only have three more classes left!!! I'm hoping to graduate in December which I'm so looking forward to.

Seattle Vacation

So last week I was able to go back home in Seattle and it was so much fun! It was very nice to have a week off from work or school and just relax. Chris and I were there for a week, although Chris left a couple days early to come back and work. We left on Chris' birthday and my family took us to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner. Oh man was it good! I've only been there once, a couple years ago, so I forgot how good it was.

I was able to go shopping a couple days for more maternity clothes and there is so much great stuff out there. It's too bad that I'm so bad at choosing things and making decisions because I wanted everything but since I could have everything I had to pick and choose. Which of course extended out the shopping experience! It was amazing how much more of a selection Target and Kohls had compared to the stores in Idaho Falls. There was so much more to choose from! Same thing went for baby stuff, much more to look at!!

My sister and a friend from church threw me a baby shower the night before I left and that was pretty fun! I got some pretty cool stuff. Since I don't know what I'm having yet, I mostly got stuff like a few toys, blankets, diaper bag, and some other stuff. I think one of my favorite gifts was the portable crib I got from one of my best friends and her parents. I totally wasn't expecting anything that big. I really wanted to bring it back with me on the plane but since I was flying by myself and I already had two suitcases to check in I had to leave it behind. But my parents are going to bring it with them when they come so that will be good.

All in all it was a great weekend and I'm going to miss being there. Although Chris had an interview with a construction company there so it's possible that we'll get to move back there next year!!
