Seven Weeks Left!

Well I am almost there.
I still have quite a little to go but hopefully the time flies by!
Things have been going pretty good for me. I'm not too uncomfortable yet. It's getting a lot harder to get a good night's rest, or even sit for too long. He has moved head down and so now his little feet are inching their way up to my ribs! I am obsessed with watching how much he moves. I could sit for hours and watch my stomach move. It's so fun to see little parts of him sticking out of my side, or pushing my whole stomach to one side! He is still moving like gives my stomach a workout. Maybe after he's born I'll have a 6-pack from all this exercise he's been giving my stomach...ok so probably not, but wouldn't that be nice!

We are starting the remodel in the next couple days so that means I have no nursery to decorate. I am a little stressed that this may not be done before this little guy gets here...keep your fingers crossed! So right now I am busy thinking of all the ideas and things that I will need to do once his nursery is finally done! The crib, bedding, and rocker have all arrived and I love them all!
I can't wait to decorate!

People have been asking me about his it's not a secret, we just haven't decided 100% on how it will be spelled. Once we figure that out I will make a grand announcement!
Eric and I are both so excited for our little boy to get here. We are counting down the days and looking forward to this new adventure in our lives.
I will keep you all posted on the next following weeks and also some pictures of my ever growing tummy and the progress of our remodel!
Here is a picture of my sister and I at our Family Reunion last week. My sister is getting ready to have her baby in the next week or so and I couldn't be more excited for her. I will be going up there next week so I can be there when little baby Howell arrives!

I know some people don't like the bare belly pics but once you are pregnant you will want some of those as well :) It's so weird and amazing how much your body changes!

Bear Lake Family Reunion

Last week I had a family reunion up at Bear Lake. It was my first time ever going there. It is such a beautiful place. I will definitely vacation there again!

The water is beautiful, so blue and clear, there is a sandy beach, the place we stayed at had a pool and hot tub, and the condos we stayed in were very nice.

We all had such a great time. There was hiking to and through a cave, horseback riding, jet skiing, boating, and so much more.

I wasn't able to do a lot of things that everyone did but I enjoyed soaking up the sun and even doing a little jet skiing!

A little peak...

We went to the Dr. today and were able to do the 3D ultrasound to see what our little boy will look like...well sort of.
He wouldn't cooperate very well so we only got a few pictures.
They aren't the best quality because I had to scan the pictures in...
His little profile
They said he has little chubby cheeks!
And Big Hands!
Look at those calf muscles!
Here is the lastest picture of me, I am 28 weeks in this picture. So a little more than a week has passed and I think I'm even bigger now!
Only about 10 weeks left!

Fourth of July!

I had a great week up in Idaho for the 4th of July! We were so busy all week. We played in the sprinklers, painted Nicole's nursery, set up her super cute patio, had a couple doctor's appointments, and I even got to spend a little time this year with Eric!
Some of the family that was in town...
As you can see, even though he was here he was still working...checking stats and making phone calls! I love how hard he works! :)
I'm sure Eric is going to be so glad that I put this picture up...

I love the 4th of July in Idaho Falls. My family has some traditions that we have been doing ever since I can remember. We get up early on the 4th and go to the parade, I could probably pass on that but Kendahl and Payton love it. Then we go up to a place that has a pool and waterslide, Heise, and spend the afternoon up there. After that we come home usually have a BBQ and then go to the best fireworks show around! I wasn't feeling very well this year but it was still so much fun!
