Oh, hi...

Ya... so it's been over 4 months.  I could line up my excuses for you but I'll give you a month by month recap instead.

June: Summer begins. I find out I'm pregnant. I go on an awesome 2 week vacation to Oceanside and Arizona and lie to my family about being pregnant.  I spend most of the rest of the month laying on the couch trying not to think about how sick I am while watching shows on Hulu with Henry running around me.  On the 25th I tell family and friends that I am pregnant.

July: I spend most of the month vigorously trying to finish school work before I leave for a Utah vacation.  I go on the Utah vacation and decide after I graduate and have this baby I'm going to be both an Olympian and a cowgirl (my love for the Olympics and the country have taken over at this point). 

August: I spend the first two weeks finishing up last minute school work and cleaning the house in preparation for my full time student teaching.  On the 15th, I officially start my student teaching in a second grade classroom.  I find out what it is like to be a working mother.  Henry goes to my parents house for a week while we work.

September: We visit Henry in Arizona to celebrate my grandparents 60th anniversary which was a nice break.  Henry goes to Utah for a week while we go back to work.  Henry comes back and the hubby watches him during the day while I work.  We find out we're having a little baby girl and she has a two vessel cord. 

October: FALL BREAK!  Baby girl's kidneys and heart look great (problems with these organs are most common with the two vessel cord) meaning she has great chances of coming into this world healthy and normal.  My mother-in-law arrives to help us with Henry (she'll be here for the next 5 weeks).  I get to listen to General Conference on my birthday!

Ending Thoughts:  I have cried more in this pregnancy than I have in my whole life combined.  I can not wait to be a college graduate- Dec. 15th school ends.  My husband is the most incredible man I've ever met.  Why?  Because he watches our son all day, does the laundry and dishes, has dinner waiting for me, and gets me a pillow and Stanford sports pass for my birthday.  Not to mention his spiritual guidance and influence on our home.  This has been the hardest 2 months of my life.  I get to go to Disneyland for Thanksgiving.  I am so so so happy and blessed.
