busy body.

Baby is moving all over the place lately! Today for the first time ever, I SAW the baby kicking me through my shirt! I was so happy I almost cried. I placed my hand there and he kicked me a few more times and I totally got misty eyed thinking, “That’s my baby!” I kept trying to record my shirt moving on video on my camera to send to Tim (poor guy is in class. he has had 6 tests in the past 2 weeks!) but as soon as I pulled it out baby stopped. 😦 I’m getting so excited! I’m the most impatient person so I feel like I’ve been pregnant forever! I can’t wait til next Friday when we find out the gender! I’m still guessing boy.

The past week or so has been very busy! Tim has had tests everyday it seems like! Factor in all our homework, jobs, housework and packing and you’ve got chaos! We’re moving into our new place a week from today! We’re very excited but also a little stressed since we aren’t nearly packed yet!

This friday the girls and I are going out to see Twilight! We’re so excited that we are making shirts for the occassion and will wear them with pride! I figure we can be nerds together and it will make it more memorable. πŸ™‚

Anyhow, more updates to come as soon as we’re all moved!

We felt the baby kick & could feel it on the OUTSIDE! πŸ™‚

He must be growing fast because my pregnancy book says you usually don’t feel it on the outside til 19-20 weeks!

*ps. we had to change our ultrasound date because I have a test review that morning. So stay tuned for Nov. 28th! We find at at 7:45am!

it’s official! Tim & I are moving to a bigger apartment! We’re moving the day before Thanksgiving & Tim & I both are working different shifts that day so hopefully we can do it! Any help is welcome! πŸ™‚ I’m becoming more & more useless everyday but I will do what I can to help move, like buying pizza if that persuades more amigos to come. πŸ™‚ We’re very excited to have more room & to be able to start preparing for tyrannasaurus rex but also a little sad to leave the apartment we’ve spent most of our marriage in. Very bittersweet but we need the room! Plus I’m sure after the first time I don’t have to walk to the laundromat for laundry day I will never miss it again! Hooray for w/d in our new place!

also, just as a side note, my hair is getting SO long! I think my pre-natals have something to do with that & the fact that my hair stylist is 800 miles away. Anyhow, instead of re-living my nightmare of cutting my own bangs again (see this post) I put the scissors in Tim’s hands. With tips from our hair guru Tim cut my hair!!! It actually turned out really well & I didn’t run off screaming. πŸ™‚ Thank goodness for husbands who know how to handle heavy machinery. πŸ™‚

I couldn’t pass up a chance to take a few pictures of the changing leaves outside. Still figuring out the settings on my camera but it’s so beautiful outside that I caught some good shots even with my novice skills. πŸ™‚

Of course Tim is always forced to be my model. πŸ™‚

The colors here were amazing! I hardly edited this picture.

Sandia Mountains. The mountains are still on the East side here! πŸ™‚

Tim got glasses finally!

I thought this was so sweet. πŸ™‚

I love the light through the trees!

I love, love, love autumn!

& just a quick update on tyranusaurus rex.
*forgive my sans makeup face! Sleep was more appealing than makeup today. πŸ™‚
It may not look like much but I promise he’s been growing! I’ve felt him kick a few times, they are very small & faint but he is there & making himself known! (*our ultrasound appointment is dec. 2nd! only a few more weeks & we’ll know if he truly is a he!)
