Final Countdown

Here we are, exactly 1 week away from my scheduled delivery. I finally feel like I am ready to have this baby! I am so done being pregnant. I think that Bodi and Sophie are also ready to get me back! We have everything we need and now all we need to do is wait for labor to start or count down the days until next week!
We will let everyone know when she gets here and post lots of pictures!
PS. I had to put this picture up. I thought it was funny!!

We are done!!!

We have wanted to do many projects with our new house since we moved in. We have been so busy the last six months that we have finally gotten to it. It is perfect timing since we are having a baby in the next couple of weeks and we have nothing better to spend our money on. We decided that we had had enough of our white carpet and pink walls. Yes, I said pink. They both were so dirty and outdated.

Before we could get carpet we needed to paint the entire upstairs of our house. Because I am not much help with the painting Bodi was my superman and painted everything in 2 weeks! He even pulled out all the old carpet and got the house ready for the new stuff! I can't believe what a difference all of our work has made. We feel like we have a brand new house! It is finally starting to feel like it is our style. Now we (or Bodi) can relax and wait for our next project to come. This one will take a little longer that 2 weeks (more like 25 years!).

36 Weeks and Counting......

(Once again these amazing pictures were taken by Abbey at AK Studio and Design)
I can't beleive that I am 36 weeks pregnant! I never made it this far with my first pregnancey. There are some advantages at delivering at 35 weeks and being on bed rest for your 3rd trimester. I never had the joy of experiencing what it really feels like to be pregnant. I now feel the aches and pains of the last month of pregnancey. I am more than ready to have this baby girl and to start the next chapter in our lives. I will gladly put up with the last few weeks to have a healthy baby girl that can come right home from the hospital. We will keep you posted on when she comes!

Sophies Brithday

Sophie is officially a 2 year old! I can't believe that 2 years has flown by. She is no longer my little baby girl. We had a fun time last night celebrating her birthday with a princess party. We had every cheesy disney priness decoration hanging in our house and she loved every bit of it. It was more than obviouse that this was a party for a 2 year old because as we were starting she locked herself in the bathroom so she could play with her chapstick. She threw a tantrum when we finally got her out. What a way to start a party! My mom made her a big princess and little princess cake. We also had a princess sheet cake. Its a good thing we had so much cake because we had 34 people at this small family party! Good thing we have a basement with lots of room. We had a great time watching her open all her presents. She is well stocked in baby doll supplies and princess stuff! Thanks to all of our friends and family that helped to make her special on her birthday!

A little bit about us...

Bodi and I met at Snow College in 2001. We dated for 8 months then got married in May of 2002. Almost 6 years has flown by! We both worked and went to school for the next 3 years untill we finished out Bachelor degrees at Utah Valley. We are both so grateful that we were able to finish our schooling together and finally we done!!! ( I still have nightmares that I didn't finish my thesis and I had to give my degree back!) Bodi studied business management and I studied communications and leadership. After graduation Bodi and I bought our first home and moved from Utah county up to Layton. Bodi was traveling 2 hours a day to work at Systems Implementers, where he is still working, so we decided it was time to move. The day we moved into our house we found out we were expecting our first daughter Sophie! She was born on February 11, 2006 as has been the joy of our lives! She has kept me busy as a stay at home Mom and I would have it any other way.She is turing 2 next week and we are so excited! We loved our little house but we knew that we couldn't stay there forever and we were lucky enough to sell our house and found our new one that we love so much. Ironically on the day we moved into our new house I found out I was pregnant with out second little girl! Funny enough these two girls are due on the same day exactly 2 years apart! Sophie was 5 weeks early so we won't be having a double birthday party for the rest of our lives. We are very excited to be having a second baby in March. I feel like I am ready to pop at any moment but I still have 5 weeks to go! While we are waiting for baby number 2 we are busily painting our entire upstairs of our house and getting new carpet! Here is a little bit about us.
We I finally gave into all the blogger friends and family of mine that said we needed a blog! I'm not so sure how this is going to work out but I think I am going to like it!
