Gettin' Closer

Today I'm officially 8 months pregnant! Only one more to go... I cannot believe it!  It seems I've been pregnant forever.  I'm sure this last month will probably feel like forever as well.  I already feel like I'm huge and I don't want to get even more huge! But I know I will.  Sleep is already quite difficult and I wake up ALOT.  I'm constantly having to switch the side I'm sleeping on.  And when I do I have to rearrange my 3 pillows in the process, which wakes me up.  I can't sleep on my back.  I can't wait to be able to lie on my back or tummy again.  I'm also getting backaches more often and the heartburn continues.  So that's all the bad, the good is that I feel my little Grayson moving around all the time and I love it.  I can't wait to hold him in my arms and be his mom.  I also can't imagine how different our lives are going be when I have him.  No more doing whatever we want whenever we want.  I'll miss that of course, but I'm more than excited to start this new stage for our family.  Anyways, that's how I'm feeling lately.  Here is my 35 weeks/ 8 months picture. 

This was last night.  Josh put his head on my belly and could feel Grayson moving around.

Just for fun- this is my doggy Gus.  He's a big, fluffy, sweet dog and I love going home so I can be around him.  Especially since I can't have a dog of my own right now. 

I'll post more later about the family vacation, being in Florida, and the baby shower my mom had for me!

Life is Good

One of my most favorite blogs to read is Shelley's blog, she is too cute and always posts about a variety of interesting things.  She gave me this award.

I'm supposed to give it to 5 people, but I don't know who wants to do it.  So I'd love for anyone to take it and answer the questions if you want to!

So here are the random questions to answer with this award:

1. What would your perfect day consist of?

Sleeping in with my hubby, going to the beach during the day, and out to a cool, fun restaurant for dinner.  

2. Walking in the woods in wellies or barefoot on the beach?

barefoot on the beach

3. Have you ever hugged or sang to a tree?

Haha, nope!

4. Do you believe in Fairies?

no, but I love reading books with fairies in them like Ella Enchanted and the Fablehaven series

5. What hobbies are you working on?

Lately, it's been working on Grayson's nursery, which is pretty much done.  I'll do a post on it soon, but it still needs a few finishing touches.  I also love scrapbooking and home decor.

1 down, 3 to go!

Josh finished his last day of his first year of medical school on Friday.  I am SO proud of him and he has done SOOO well all year.  He got A's in all of his classes!   He is glad to have a break for a little while.  Sadly, they only get a month off between 1st and 2nd year, but we are grateful for it.  We went out to lunch on Friday with some other couples in our ward who are also first year medical students.  It was fun to celebrate together.  Here are some pictures from the italian restaurant we went to. 

The whole group

Chad, Ashley, and Hailey

I didn't get a pic of the Rhea family at the end of the table, they were too far, but they were there too!  Thanks everyone, we love being friends you guys!

There's a sweet giveaway going on over at Milan Maternity right now!  For those of you who are pregnant like me or maybe soon will be or like planning ahead (Shelley? ;) ) then you'll want to check this out.  I seriously LOVE their maternity tops, they are so cute!  I've got a bunch of them already.  And best of all, they're modest!  I'm pretty sure the people who do it are LDS.

Here is one of my favorite tops over there (which I own).

Anyways, they just started their blog and are celebrating by giving away 3 awesome prizes:
  1. A $100 E-Gift Card to Milan Maternity for Mommy
  2. A $100 E-Gift Card to Babies 'R' Us for Baby
  3. A $50 Gift Card to Applebee's and 2 movie tickets to Regal Entertainment theaters for Daddy (who we all know needs a little extra attention once baby arrives, right?)
Look at all the cute stuff one their website here!  If you want to get in on the giveaway, there are lots of different ways to get some entries.  Check it out here!
