Baby Hall

There is a lot to update since my last post so hopefully this isn't too long.

I am now 28 weeks pregnant and heading into my third trimester. It is so crazy to believe that I only have 12 more weeks left until I get to hold my little one! At the end of November we got my ultrasound and found out that we are having a boy! I was going to be happy with a boy or girl and so was Josh so we were just so thrilled to see that he was growing strong and healthy.

There are definitely many ups and downs to being pregnant and sometimes I feel like I dwell on the downs maybe a bit too much so I want to take some time to talk about the things that I love about being pregnant. Probably the number one thing that I love is feeling him move inside of me. When I first started feeling it, I am not going to lie, it freaked me out just a little bit. But now I love feeling him move and I think that when I have him I am going to feel so lonely because I won't be feeling his every move. It is just really a special thing to me to be able to know how safe he is in my stomach and know that I can protect him so well. It is so crazy to me how amazing our bodies are. We can grow a living thing inside of us and that is such a crazy blessing to me.

I am so excited to be a mom and I can't wait until I have someone who depends on me and calls me mom. I feel so blessed to have this opportunity and I can't wait until April gets here! (It seems so far away but really it is going to come so fast!)

In December, I was able to graduate from college with my Bachelor in Music Education. I am so grateful for my education and that I was able to finish before the baby came. I know that it is going to be a blessing to be able to have that degree to use when I need. As far as jobs go I am keeping my eye out. I really don't want a full time job in the fall because I want to be able to stay home a little bit. But I would love to get something part-time so we will just see what happens I guess.

Josh is still working hard on his business and is actually pretty busy right now. Around Christmas time we were getting a little worried because he was so slow and we didn't know how we were going to support a baby if things didn't pick up. Come the second week in January though he has been so busy he doesn't know what to do with himself which is so amazing! Also any spare time that he has is spent working on our garage that we are turning into the baby's bedroom. Poor guy hardly gets a break but the room has to be done before the baby comes that is my one stipulation haha.

I got called as the Primary President in our ward and that has had it's challenges but I know it will bring blessings as well. Other than that keeping me busy I am subbing for the school district so I hope that I keep getting calls for that so I can bring in a little more income before the baby comes. Well I think that is our last couple months in a nutshell. Life is good and both of us are so excited to meet our little one. I know that Josh is going to be an amazing dad. It is already so adorable how he loves to see my growing belly because he knows it means his baby is growing healthy. I love him so much and I can't believe it has already been 3 1/2 years since we got married!!!

Till later!
