Easter Sunday

Our Easter Sunday was very relaxing and without any little kiddos around fairly quiet. Jake and I spent the morning relaxing and making fun of our new favorite Disney movie "Enchanted" (we watched the entire movie using lateral lisps when we mimicked characters....hilarious). Next we all enjoyed our Easter baskets. Yes the Easter bunny even came to our house.

As per our worship, church was short today because we had stake conference. There wasn't awhole lot of mention about Easter which we thought was kind of a bummer....but I think Easter kind of snuck up on our stake. Jake and I watched some neat videos about how modern day Easter came to be and then read the story of Jesus' resurrection.

For dinner, Jake was sweet enough to cook DELICIOUS steaks. I really struggle with food smells so Jake has been so kind to just take over the food stuff. We had asparagus, rice, and a salad to go along with our steaks. Sometimes I wonder if I should even go back to being the cook when we have this baby....Jake is a million times better at it than I am. I think while he is law school I will have PLENTY of time to figure it out.

We hope everyone's Easter Sunday was wonderful and we all remembered the resurrection of our Lord and Savior and what a blessing that knowledge can bring us.

Love to All!

So, the last two weeks I have been feeling the pregnancy NAUSEA! I am told that this is sure sign that everything is working correctly.... isn't there another way to know everything is working right?

Every night around 3 am I wake up feeling this insane hunger that I don't think I have felt in my lifetime. A few crackers and pretzels and I'm back to sleep. Then at 7:45 am (yes every morning!) I wake up feeling like I am on a sea ship in the middle of some god forsaken storm. Lovely huh? Well usually I can get up and start my day and do pretty well for most of the day. Then about 3 pm I CRASH. This is when this little baby won't let my body do anymore. Sometimes I feel like a cartoon character, I eat more often than Brad Pitt in Ocean's Eleven, I sleep more than a bear hybernating in the winter, and I have this oddly shaped growth on my stomach that resembles something like a humungous tumor which gets really big at night. I can just see this cartoon..... I always imagined what pregnancy would be like and this is DEFINITELY not what I imagined.

Needless to say, I'm not glowing, I'm just covered in zits. My belly isn't cute, it looks like an alien. I haven't spent a dime on maternity clothes (I was so excited for them) because I am too tired to drive the .5 miles to the mall to buy them. So a package of rubber bands and lots of long tank tops and I have my own makeshift maternity clothes. I don't have a twinkle in my eye, I can't even see for that matter my eyes are so blurred from all these hormones. Oh an the hormones, Im not sweetly crying at babies and diaper commercials, no I cry at EVERYTHING...even if I can't find the remote or we are out of saltine crackers.

Now all of this might seem like complaining. I see it as a scoop of reality from the big ice cream jar of life. I am so excited for this baby, I am so excited to be a mom, and I am thankful for the opportunity to be pregnant. I am also thankful that I can come down from my positive cloud and remember that I asked for this.

To all those that have been pregnant, are going to be pregnant, or are pregnant....HATS off to you. Bringing a child into the world is an amazing feat and I am proud to cuddle my baby and whisper... I did it because I love you more than myself.

Until next time......
