Some milk for my piggies


Take a look at that adorable little face!! We got this picture at my 20 (19) week ultrasound. Isn't he gorgeous?! Well I thought I would post about what has been happening lately. (last week I spent the entire time fussing over trying to upload videos... which I'm still a little annoyed about. Anyways I am 26 weeks tomorrow! I can't believe how fast time is going. It seems like just yesterday I made it to 20 weeks... Before you know it I'll be 30 weeks and then time will really start to fly. But before that happens I would like to tell you a little bit of what I've been doing.

So when we moved down here from Salt Lake I quit my job at the Reconstructive Dental Specialist of Utah. There was no way I would have been able to commute. Before I could look for a new job Wyatt just told me not to bother, he really wanted me to be able to stay home during my pregnancy. At first I kind of freaked out but really, what a sweetheart!

January 1 2012- Kicked off the New Year like we should with Satyra and Jonathan at Club Elevate dancing. It was a little intense, but SOO much fun. We ran around the streets afterwards screaming "Happy New Year!" There was fireworks in the background {really it seemed like a movie} Of course afterwards we HAD to go to IHOP. SO much fun. I remember the first song they played after 12:00 am struck was "We found love" By Rhianna... safe to say my best new years ever.  {Funny that this New Years, I might be at a hospital giving birth to my little boy}

January 4- Moms Birthday, We had ice cream cake with Renee and Annika to celebrate her birthday :)

January 18- Paid Tuition for my Nutrition class
January 19- I had an appointment with the Podiatrist, cuz my feet are messed up.
January 20- Eye doctor and Dentist appointments {Trying to make the most of my Dads insurance, when I went to the Dentist I had no cavities!! Hooray!} Scheduled my Wisdom Teeth Removal!

January 27- Wisdom Teeth Removal from Dr. Cameron Egbert! He did such a fantastic job, I woke up and wondered if we had already done it.{He said I talked all through the surgery, funny} Sadly it took me FOREVER to recover from this surgery and I even had to have one site reopened and cleaned. Rotten luck eh? However i lost a ton of weight! By the time of my first OB appointment I weighed 115! score! Since I didn't get horrible morning sickness I was happy I had lost some poundage... I would have been a total fatty right now... shudder.
January 28- Jazz Game! We went to support Jimmer! {I was miserable because I had gotten my wisdom teeth out. I didn't even stay awake for most of the game, I was in and out really.
Feb 11- Saw Wyatt's Family and Renee, Annika and my mom. We also hung out with Gloria and Luis, but I'm not exactly sure what we did...
Feb 12- Hung out with a bunch of friends Sunday afternoon
Feb. 16- Melting Pot with Jonathan and Satyra, This is where we started talking about Cancun, Wyatt and I were already going but we invited Jonathan and Satyra to come... we never thought they actually would! But we were thrilled when they did!
Feb. 24- Wyatts Birthday! Thomas came over to help me surprise him with cake and time with his little brother {Thanks Thomas}
April 13- Moms Knee surgery {Renee and Annika came up to keep my mom company {thank heavens}
April 16- My first day working for Dr. Egbert, hooray!
April 29- Alex got back from his mission, wahoo!! He told me I lost a ton of weight, ha! He looks so much bigger than when he left.
April 20- Wyatt's Graduation! {I was already Pregnant, I just didn't know it!!}
April 24- Found out I was pregnant! Last week of my Nutrition Class!! {Which I totally rocked!}Of course we went to In and out to celebrate, wyatt was estatic!
May 3rd or 4th- I'm gonna guess that one of these two days was when we did our first ultrasound at Fetal Fotos! We saw the little peanut and we heard the heartbeat. Our hearts fluttered with Joy as we realized that this was really happening!!
May 10- Went to my moms work to give her flowers and chocolate cake, then went to City Creek with Satyra {Mexican Mothers day :) }
May 12- Lunch at Outback for Mothers day, Dinner with Phil and Lupe and I'm pretty sure we watched "Dark Shawdows" with Satyra and Jonathan {That movie turned out to be a lot weirder than I expected}
May 15- Hung out with my Mom in Salt Lake, drove around everywhere :) {I always LOVED when my mom came to visit me, it made me giddy and we always had such a fun time, I missed her when she was gone... I wonder how I'm gonna handle CT}
May 16- Pedicures at Juicy Nails for mothers day {Compliments of Marco and Emilee again, thank you!}
May 17- Lunch with Satyra at our favorite little french restaurant :) {as I side note I had a lot of days in May where I didn't work, it was soo much fun :) Made me really happy} (I'm almost certain Wyatt was gone for a couple of days away at his West Virginia interview... but I can't quite remember the date)
May 31- Massage in honor of mothers day compliments of Marco and Emilee {thank you!}
June 1- I was laying on the couch {as I usually did after work} I was exhausted and a little sad, when I swear to you I first felt my baby kick. It was only like 2 or 3 times in a row but I'm 100% they were kicks. I remember being super surprised and excited. At first I was like... what the heck was that?
June 2- Happy Birthday to me!! We celebrated by going to the Dinosaur Museum, Wyatt took me on a shopping spree the week before, we met up with Wyatt's family for Texas Roadhouse to celebrate MINE AND THOMAS' birthdays! BIRTHDAY TWINS... we tried to do Timpanogos Caves but we had no luck. Darn.
June 10- I think this might have been the night where we stayed at the Armstrong Mansion in honor of our 3rd anniversary, it was a great place but we didn't even make love there! We both felt too sick. What a bust! we ate dominos pizza and it was disgusting.
June 12- My FIRST OB appointment! I remember practically having to sell my soul to get into Dr. Melissa Brown, Thanks to the sweet front desk Ladies I was able to :) It was seriously the most exciting thing ever. we got to see the baby through ultrasound and he was soo active {of course he looked like a little jelly bean, but he was ours and we were soo excited to see him!}
June 19- Happy 3 Years to us! I'm pretty sure we went somewhere for lunch... if I can remember right
June 21-28- Cancun with Satyra and Jonathan!! :) Best trip ever!
June 29- I'm pretty sure we went to IHOP for breakfast and then we went to Fetal Fotos for an ultrasound. Wyatt was worried about the baby because I had a fever in Cancun and did some cliff jumping. He also told them that if they could tell we wanted to know the gender {naughty Wyatt} The lady doing the ultrasound said "I can't be 100% sure it's a little early but I would say it's a boy". We were super excited at the possibility of having a boy! Up to this point I hadn't even allowed myself to think it was a boy, because deep down I wanted one SOO bad! They gave us a voucher and told us to come back in two weeks and they would see for certain if it was a boy... we were bursting.
July 3- Even if it was only a couple of days after I HAD to know if what we were having was indeed a little man. I originally wanted to keep it a secret but the thought of having a little boy just made me SOO giddy. So right after work I RACED to get to get to Fetal Fotos. I requested the girl that did my first ultrasound because she was soo much more happy and she seemed way more experienced. I brought her a brownie for squeezing me in. I went without Wyatt because I was a little nervous .I laid down and pulled my shirt up {the girl warned me the baby might not be sitting in the right spot for me to see or it still might be too early. but I didn't care I wanted to know} seconds after she put the thing on my stomach she knew and she said "that is 100% a boy" oh my gosh, words cannot express my joy at that point. Seriously I felt like i had just gone to the moon and back! I kept asking her to make sure over and over. She kept saying it was a boy! I was like nearly screaming "it's a boy, Oh my gosh it's a boy!" When I left there I was seriously on cloud nine. I couldn't believe it. But I wanted to surprise Wyatt, so I thought I would buy our little man a cute outfit and surpirse wyatt with a picture of the ultrasound showing he's a boy in one of the pockets. I first called my mom and at first she didn't believe me but then she got way excited. Then I called my dad, then I called Hoss. They were both excited. I went straight for Baby Gap when I got to City Creek and I ran into Ruth and Justin. I told her that I had found out it was a Boy! She went to Baby Gap with me and helped me picked out the first outfit I bought my little teddy. A gorgeous sunday outfit, blue pants, pink plaid shirt and an argyle pink and purple sweater. I also bought him a denim jumper. While I was at city creek I called Marco and of all the siblings he was by far the happiest I told him "Marco, it's a boy! I'm having a boy" and he said "NO way man!! Dude I am so stoked" Then my phone died :( but I called him when I got home and we chatted about how excited we were. Wyatt was excited but not as excited as I had anticipated him being, he said "I already knew it was a boy"
July 4- BBQ like at the Anthony's house, we told everyone we were having a boy and RSL game {we were supposed to go to this with Satyra and Jonathan but they had already moved :( }
July 11- OB appointment @9:20 am
July 18-20 Wyatt was gone for his Quinnipiac interview, it was lonely not having him there {Not that I saw him like at all anyways}
July 21- Watched The Dark Knight Rises
July 27- Last Day of working for Dr. Egbert, I bawled like the baby I am. It was really sad cleaning out my cubby and saying bye to Melissa
July 28- Try to move things out like crazy people {we were literally up until 5 am, sweet Wyatt stayed up even longer to try and get us all ready to leave... which by the time Wyatt's family came over to help us move we were... by the way I am so grateful they came to help us move... really, but really I am} Goodbye Meadowbrook, I can't say I miss you too much. I am soo much Happier here :)
July 30- First day Wyatt and I went swimming at the Provo Rec Center, we stayed for like an hour phew what a workout
July 31- Wyatt did the finishing touches to our apartment and turned in the keys, and we were done with Meadowbrook hooray! I also went to a really fun Hip Hop class at the Rec Center. I took the bus there and the teacher gave me a ride home. She was really nice.
August 1- Swimming again
August 2- Hip Hop
August 3- Lauren picked me up and took me to Costa Vida, her treat. Seriously how nice is she?
August 4- Katelyn Bowen's Baby shower I went with my mom, Max's wedding. We got to see Satyra and Jonathan again!! We went to Red Mango afterwards and then took them to the cabin they were staying at.
August 7- I hung out with T, we watched Baby mama and went to check out an apartment for her. It was so great being able to see her again. I consider her a close friend
August 9- 20 week ultrasound (even though I was really only 19) at 8:40 am and OB appointment right after that {miserable constipation that day, I resorted to some drastic measures to say the least... }
August 10- My sweet roommates graduated :) I went to see them all dressed up! It was the first time in a long time that I had seen them all together (we missed Alyssa and Kate)
August 13- We found out Wyatt was accepted into Quinnipiac HOORAY!

September 6- OB apt @ 11:20 this time my mom and I went to City Creek 
September 11- I went on a hike with Sarah to Bridaveil falls, it was beautiful .Later that day I went to Zumba with Lauren at good old BYU. I went because my favorite teacher was teaching but it wasn't as good as I remembered it so I decided I didn't need a wristband. What a relief those things are expensive and hard to get.
September 12-Cassie came over and we watched "Mean Girls" and talked. Mean girls never gets old. I don't think it ever will...
September 15- Yard Sale with my parents and Utah State Fair with Phil and Lupe. Wyatt and I got a Turkey Leg and funnel cake, they were both delicioius
September 18-shopping with Ruth and Dinner at Terra Mia with my mom
September 19- Wyatt came home early from work his schedule switched to 8-5 for the 19th and 20th. We went to Los Hermanos with Wyatts family and then hung out at his parents house for a while. Good day
September 20- laziest day of my life, I literally did NOTHING it was sad really. But I got some Penne Rosa at Noodles and co. We then watched the football game at his parents house
September 21- went swimming in the morning and then was super productive. Got my baby shower invites printed and go my hair cut to my shoulders!
September 22- Yard sale with Lupe, wasn't as succesful this time, darn :( Cascade springs with Sarah and Brian.
September 23- Today.

Phew that was a lot. I can't believe I was able to list all of that, it makes me happy. One thing is for sure, I have A LOT of people to thank for so far this year being amazing. Such a great year :) I always thought that my 18th year and my 23rd year would be amazing years but I never thought that 22 would hold so much in it as well!

Anyways back to my initial thought. I have really enjoyed my time at home. I mean I thought I would go crazy becuase the entire month of August and two weeks of September we didn't have cable or interenet. So you would think there would be nothing to do. But somehow I always found something. I have kept myself really entertained, and still do. So my basic week goes as follows

12 pm Swimming with Wyatt,
1:40 Wyatt leaves for work, Rest of the Day cooking and cleaning, at around
7 or 8 pm sit down to watch a movie until Wyatt gets home

Between times I usually hang out with my mom and or friends. I sometimes take bike rides, work on my memory book, read, crochet,  or go on a walk, or do something else. Now that I have the internet I spend some time on here as well. Really I wish I spent less. Before I had the internet I maybe used it once a week. It felt good to be free of my addiction. Maybe I can kick that addiction again :) One thing is for sure I don't use it half as much as I used to. Or need to.

I still can't believe it's the last week of September! it seems like just yesterday was the beginning. Soon it will be baby shower time and then the little showcase I've been practicing for and by that time I'll be 30 weeks pregnant! 10 more weeks after that {maybe less if baby gives us a pleasant surprise, but not too early! maybe week 39 :)}  I am so grateful for my life, for Wyatt's, my families and my baby! I have probably never been happier, well maybe I have. But for a long amount of time like I have been these past two months. I have been so lucky to be able to stay home {thanks to my sweet Wyatt}. Because I'm able to stay home I'm able to more time with Wyatt than I ever have! We get all morning together and we stay up late together. I sometimes wish he had a better schedule because I wonder if he'd be happier with it. But then I am selfish because I think of all the time I get him to myself :) I have no idea what it's gonna be like when Baby joins the picture but I can bet I won't be seeing much of Wy afterwards. I love him so much and I can't wait to have a baby with him! I have so lucky to spend all this time with my mom. I think I will miss her terribly when we move away. But I'm happy that we will be living with her when I have my baby and at least she will be able to spend some serious bonding time with him. I am excited to see Marco again :) I get to see him in December after Danny's born {hopefully, he comes within the time he's here...} Hopefully he comes before jan 1, even if he comes December 31 that would be perfect! So we can get our Tax Break... This is such an exciting time and I'm trying to soak up every last second of it!  Below I'll put some pictures for you to gaze at :)

Ps. Today's quote is brought to you by Flight of the Conchords. Mel says it when she just walks into Brett and Jermaine's apartment like it's no big deal. She apparently bought them milk :)
