In 24 hours

This makes apartment number six for Travis and I and one of the few times that we've done it all in 24 hours. We woke up early in Cedar to make our drive to Orem. By the afternoon we had our future ward members helping us unload the truck. By evening we had the kitchen unpacked, half the bedroom set up, my Dad had helped Travis hook up the washer and dryer, and we had enough boxes out of the way to have my whole family over for dinner and dessert. It was great. By bedtime we were in our new place with a nice cool breeze brought in by our very own window! :) Life is good when you have a window big enough to let in a breeze.

This morning we picked up this cute little thing! We've been waiting for weeks to move up here so that we could have a dog. We specifically only looked at apartments that would allow us to have a dog. Meet Maestro (Pronounced My-stro). Yesterday he turned two months old and he only weighs two pounds!
So the baby is doing well. We meet our new Dr. next week so still have some time to go. I'll be 19 weeks in just two days. I feel like my belly is stickin' out pretty good. I hate not being able to sleep on my stomach. Some times when I wake up in the morning I go, 'oh yeah, I'm pregnant'. I put on a pair of maternity pants today and they are so comfortable! No button at all, how great is that? I think I might convert over to maternity clothes permantely. OH! And more good news, Travis found out the other day that he passed his Utah board exam! Sweet! I was not surprised, I knew he was going to pass. So now he waits for his certificate to show up and then he gets to start work. He's excited, I'm excited, the whole family is excited. I gotta be honest, life is good for us right now. We just moved in a great apartment, we're pregnant, we just got a dog, and we're not working! Enjoy it while it lasts, right?

You are such a cute prego!!! Look at your little friend sticking out like that! I love you and am so glad you are lovin life. Isn't it funny we thought making movies, eating popcorn, and kissing boys with frozen hair was as good as it gets! Boy I'm glad we were wrong!

I am so jealous. I can't wait for the day that Ryan is done with school, we are prego, we have a dog and we can get a house.

I am so excited for you both. Tell Travis congrats on passing the test, that is hard work I am sure.

Your belly is so cute. I just saw Annie the other day. She is looking cute and prego too. I hope I am as cute as you and Annie when I am prego.
