A Little Update

It has been a while since I last posted anything. We have been so busy lately! I thought I would give a little update on our lives.

For Easter, we visited Lauren, Jeff, and Ava at their new home in Idaho Falls! It's such a beautiful town-home. It made Alec and I dream for the day when we can move in to a bigger place. We LOVE our apartment now, but it's getting pretty cramped with all of the baby stuff. Anyway, we had a great time with them in Idaho! My parents and younger brothers came up as well, and Alec and I had our first meal at Famous Dave's. If you have not been there, you NEED to. Just make sure you're not planning on eating anything for at least 5 hours after you partake of their feast. :)

Alec and I drove down to California last weekend. We were able to spend time with family for Mother's Day. On Saturday, we went to our niece's baseball games. It was so fun to watch them! Our skin, however, did not like it so much. Both Alec and I left with nice sunburns. We have been in this Utah winter for far too long! On Sunday, we had a delicious Mother's Day dinner at the Pratt's. Then on Monday, we went to my brother, Cameron's spring choir concert. He did such a great job! Also on Monday, we picked up a TON of baby stuff from Alec's brother and sister-in-law! I mean a TON! We had to borrow Alec's parents' truck just to get it all up here! They were so wonderful to let us use all of their gear! We now have: a crib, changing table, baby swing, car seat, stroller, 2 bases for the car seat, an exer-saucer, a bunch of clothes, and a few other small things here and there. We were so excited to get it all home. Getting it in the house, however, was difficult for Alec since I wasn't really any help with the big stuff...

The baby is doing well! My belly is just getting bigger by the day! Sometimes I feel like there is no way that I can get any bigger than I already am, and then I remember that I still have 3 months to go... I'm pretty sure that by the end, I will look like there is a watermelon sticking straight out of me. This little girls definitely likes to kick quite a bit and she's only getting stronger. The other day, we were listening to the Noteworthy CD in the car and she started violently kicking me in the ribs! We would like to think that it was because she recognized my voice singing on the CD. ;) We can't wait to meet this little one!

Other than our recent travels, Alec and I have been working full-time and organizing and reorganizing our apartment. Sometimes, I feel like that could be a full-time job by itself! We're excited for summer to get here!
