Not much new here...

But I guess it's time for an update. I haven't really been up to anything exciting lately so I have nothing cool to report. I'm now 29 weeks along and I can sure feel it...the heartburn is killing me and the weight gain is awful. Somehow, even though I'm not totally porking on everything, I still have gained 30 pounds so far! So looks like I'll one chubby girl at the end. My cheeks (both sets) are definitely a lot bigger and rounder - and who knew I could have such flabby arms!!! Anyway, it's all fun, especially when I finally get my prize in the end. This baby has been waiting a loooong time to come and I couldn't be happier to finally be blessed a little baby of my own to love.

So, in preperation for the baby, Ben and I decided it was time to buy a new car. Some of you might remember that ours got stolen last August. Well we just never saw the need to replace it and have been doing just fine with the truck. But as I get bigger and more awkward, getting in and out of that thing is more and more difficult - and I think it won't be much better when I'm trying to load a baby in and out of it. Why Ben needed to put a lift on it is beyond me. Anyway, we spent the last two weeks looking and finally found a beautiful car that's perfect for us (it's not new or anything ...but it's perfect!). It looks pretty much exactly like this but it's red:
Besides that we're just sitting here waiting for the baby to come...I know it's at least 11 weeks away so I shouldn't get too excited yet. But we're still trying to get things together and organized but hopefully things fall into place soon. We've ordered the carseat and it's on it's way (thank you mom and dad); we ordered the stroller and it's in Idaho patiently waiting for a ride up here (hopefully at the end of May if things work out the way I have them planned - that is if Emily's baby comes as planned and her DH Gary remembers to bring it up as planned); we have the crib and everything set up and waiting (well except the bedding); and I'm just trying to finish collecting all the clothes that will one day be puked and poo'd on. I can hardly wait.

Anyway, for all you that care, here is a picture of me at 28 weeks. I look really happy hey? I think it's cause the sun was in my eyes...either that or I'm trying to do the whole 'pouty/sultry look' which we know I am not capable of. Either way, you get to see my growing tummy!
