We are having a baby girl!!

This picture is of her bum. the arrow is between her legs pointing at her private part.

Side profile with her arm by her face.
An attempt at a 3D picture... you can see her right eye and her open mouth... at the bottom of the orange blob...

We are so happy to know our baby is healthy and growing strong. (since i still haven't felt any movement, i was scared there would be no baby in me and the dr. would tell me i was just getting fat). Our new due date according to the ultra sound is December 1st!

Here's an update on the lives of us...

The baby is cooking pretty well. I feel like I'm very paranoid about everything I do. I always wonder, are these pains in my stomach normal? Is it normal for my stomach to hurt if I stretch it? I don't know if I can really avoid sleeping on my back at night, but I try... I just don't know!! Anyways, we have our next Dr. on the 15th and hopefully we will be scheduling our ultrasound to find out what we are having!

There are only 6 more days of school left in the Spring term. THEN I'M DONE WITH COLLEGE!!!!!!! Nate, on the other hand, still has 6 days and then another 6 more weeks till he is done. We are very very excited to move on, get to Mesa and start our cute little family!

Nate volunteers with 4H... not too sure what it stands for... Last weekend they had a luau! It made me miss Hawaii a lot and all the sunshine and the ocean... Anyways, we were in charge of the bowling station and had a ton of fun! We were all decked out hard core...

Since Nate is going to be in school June 28th, we decided to have our 1 year anniversary a little early. SoooOOOooooOOOoooooooooOOOOOOOOO.... WE WENT TO VEGAS!!! We stayed at the South Point hotel which was about 2 miles south of the strip. It was AMAZING! We got a coupon book when we checked in for some free meals, free souvenir from the gift shop, free popcorn, free bowling, etc. We had a HUGE movie theater on the top floor of our hotel AND a 36 lane bowling ally. And this here... was our cute hotel room.
Nate really wanted to go to the aquarium so... we went.

We saw sharks...
a huge octopus...
We got to pet a manaray...
They are really slimy
We saw some cool looking fish...
And we are so stinken cute...
Then... we went to the movie theater at our hotel and saw 17 again. and we were the only people in the entire theater...
So... naturally, we had some fun.
We then went bowling... it was $1 a game after midnight so we stayed up till about 2 am bowling. Nate won... but not by much...
Perfect form.
This at the miracle mile. We thought we were cool for taking this picture that looks like we are outside, in the middle of the afternoon, when we were actually inside at like 9 at night.
We took lots of pictures.
When it's just the two of us, there are not too many poses we can choose from for pictures.
We watched the water show, and fell in love all over again...
It was beautiful.

We got some smoothies and found this awesome wall..
My husband is so stinken cute!!!

So that is our photo montage of our trip to Vegas. Since then... we have started Spring term. MY LAST 6 WEEKS OF SCHOOL EVER!!!!!!!! We went to the Dr. to hear the heart beat of our little fetus, but they couldn't find it, SO... I am going in for an ultrasound this week to make sure everything is ok. Now that we are in school again... our lives are boring again.

Nii che

Winter semester is OVER!!!!! WAAAAHOOO!!!! well, only a few more finals, then it's over for good. My cute husband got me this beautiful flower for Easter because he lovvves me :)

Over the Easter weekend, we went to Lydia's house to decorate eggs and have a little pin the puff on the bunny contest... (lyida won). We had our own little Easter celebration which consisted of small baskets full of candy and 6 eggs hidden. very well.

On Easter Sunday, Nate and I helped Owen propose to Alyssa. We hiked the Y for the first and only time. If it weren't for Owen wanting to propose up there, Nate and I probably never would have hiked that bloody mountain. Straight up THE ENTIRE time... Nothing really to look at while your walking... but when you get to the top, it's pretty nice to see everything in Provo.

We hid in some non-bushy bushes and took some pictures of all the action... they are so cute!

Now... my big brother is getting married! And I can't wait!!!
While Nate and I stay in Provo to finish up the last bit of school, Owen, Alyssa, Lydia, Dan, Kaitlyn and Makenzie are all leaving!!! It makes me so sad... We will miss them a lot...
