Hello, everyone!!

Just a quick note for you today. We had our doctor's appointment a week ago & the doctor was not able to tell if we're having a boy or a girl. I was so sad!! He thought it might be a boy, but he couldn't tell for sure, the baby was squirming too much, & then crossed its legs, so that was that. We do know that our baby has really long legs, but I guess that shouldn't be too much of a surprise. The head & abdomen measured at a little over 17 weeks, but the legs measured at 19 1/2 weeks, so we've got a tall skinny baby. Ha ha. I can finally feel the baby moving, sometimes those long legs hurt!! I'm kind of afraid for what kind of pain I might feel when the baby is stronger & its legs are even longer. Yikes!! It doesn't hurt all the time, but the baby hits pretty hard every once in a while. Anyway, the doctor will try to look again next month on September 9th, so keep your fingers crossed.

Another bit of exciting news from our family.....Matt & I are in the process of buying a house!! Hooray!! I'm so excited, no more renting, no more landlords, no more crazy repair men who never show up or say it's too hot to come fix things. Anyway, we'll know for sure if everything is final by next week, and I can't wait. If everything goes as planned we will be moving in on September 1st. They don't call it Labor Day for nothing, ha ha. My friend's realtor found us a nice sized house in our price range. It's in Orem, has 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, living room, family room, storage room, garage, and laundry room. It also has a 1/2 acre of land with it, 4 apple trees, and we think an apricot tree, a little basketball court in back, and a walnut tree out front. It's older & needs updating inside, but it was a great deal for how big it is. I can finally stop stressing about where we're going to put the baby when it's born, since it will now have its own room. Yeah!! I'll have to take pictures of the awesome bathrooms, pink tile upstairs, turquoise tile downstairs. It's pretty sweet. Anyway, we're really excited & we hope everything works out, keep your fingers crossed for us.

My cousin Anthony graduated with his Master's degree in Exercise Science last Friday, that was a happy day. Now we have to call him "master", ha ha. I'll put some pictures up sometime. I don't know why it's so hard for me to remember the pictures. Oh well. Ant's wife is going to have their 5th baby any day now. When they checked on Thursday she was dilated to a 3, but I haven't heard anything since Saturday, so I guess she hasn't had it yet. I guess that's it for now. The baby just waved at you all, or kicked a few times for you, not sure which one. It's such a weird feeling, but it's also a good feeling. I wish Matt could feel it, but he says he can't, maybe in a few more weeks when the baby's stronger. Ouch!! Ha ha. Have a good day, everyone!!
