Well it is official we are moving. Not too far though. We are staying in the general area. We found a town home down in Woodbridge,VA. If any of you know that area we are pretty much around the corner from Potomac Mills Outlet mall. The sad thing is we will have to move out of our ward. :( I was sad about this. We tried so hard finding something in our ward boundaries but had no luck. We needed something bigger and not more expensive and that isn't possible in Fairfax county. I will miss our ward so much but we won't be that far away. And I figured that I can still hang out with all the new mom's in the Annadale ward when you all get together. I'll just drive myself and my little man up to you...if you don't mind me intruding. :)

The good news is we did it!!! We found something bigger and less expensive! We will be in a 3 bedroom town home! It's super cute. The neighborhood was build in the 70's so it a bit older on the outside but the inside is newly renovated and it meets our needs. We can move in on July 15th so we are gonna paint the baby's room that weekend! We don't have to be out of our apartment now until the 22nd so we will still be living up in Fairfax until then so I don't have to have such a long commute to work. I am really excited though to finally be able to start on the baby's room. Everyone at work has been asking me if the room is finished and it's really funny to see there face when I say no..I haven't even started. I don't think it will take that long though. Or am I completely kidding myself?

32 weeks

I am 32 weeks! Only 8 to go! It's getting closer and closer. I had a doctors appointment on Monday and I was exactly 32 cm. His heart beat was 145bpm and he is moving and a grooving! He is around 4 pounds could be 19 inches long..that's what my email said this week. Hmm i don't think my baby is 19 inches long yet. Have you seen how tall I am? haha I love to just watch him move around at night. It is a lot of fun to see it. He loves to get up into my ribs too. I can't imagine myself getting any bigger but it's going to happen. Everyone has told me IT WILL HAPPEN! I am still able to teach all my aerobic classes. It is totally getting difficult so I have had to modify pretty much everything. I am just happy that I have been able to keep working out this whole time. Come July though I will down grade my teaching time to only 2 times a week instead of 4. I am starting to feel lots of pain in my legs and back so I know that probably means slow it down. Super excited to meet this little guy!!!

Braxton Hicks/Hiccups

31 weeks! And only 9 to go! It's crazy that I only have a little over 2 months. I can't believe that. I thought I would stay between 20-30 weeks forever! So last week I had braxton hicks for the first time...well the first time I noticed them. And I think I was having heart burn during also. I was so uncomfortable though. Jordan was so sweet and walked around the apartment with me rubbing my neck and shoulders. It was great..not the braxton hicks but the message. I didn't realize the braxton hicks could be painful. Actually to be quite honest I didn't really know what braxton hicks were. I had heard about them and new they were false contractions but I didn't really understand...and I guess I shouldn't really of understood what they were because I had never experienced them before. At first I just thought I was having really bad heart burn then I was thinking well why would heart burn be all over my stomach and not just in my chest. I was most definitely having heart burn also though.

Also I think it was about 2 weeks ago when I first felt our little guy having the hiccups. I was trying to take a nap after work one day and my belly had a constant bounce to it. It was so cute. I kept looking at my belly and smiling. And he has had them a bunch since then also! He is running out of room in there as well. I feel a lot of pressure on my belly and I know it's him trying to move around but having a hard time. He really seems to like the top of my belly right under my chest, and my ribs. Silly little boy! I can't wait to see him! I need him to keep cookin though!

Putt Putt

Here I am at 29 weeks and 4 days! Only about 10 more to go! Can't wait!!!

This weekend my parents were out of town at a Wedding in Utah so my two younger sisters came down to stay with me and Jordan for the night. We decided that since it was so beautiful outside we should go and enjoy nature. Jordan knew of a park/lake that had fun stuff to do. So we headed down the road to Burke Lake. I had never been there so we were excited to go. Jordan knew about this place because he went on a camp out with the Young Men in our ward here.

Here we are at the dock looking at the water and people fishing.

They had a driving range and putt putt there also so we decided to go play some mini golf. It was really funny because there was a little boy behind us playing with his dad and brother and he kept telling us to hurry up because he didn't want to wait anymore. He kept asking us if we were almost done it was really funny.

Silly sisters

me and my man!

Sister and hubby. You can actually see the little boy I was talking about he is in the orange shirt and brown pants. This is us waiting because there were so many people playing so everyone had to wait not just the little boy. He was very impatient. But entertaining as well.

Sunday my sisters also came to church we us and everyone in our ward could not believe how much we looked alike. I think people I have never even spoken to said something to us about how much we looked alike.

It was fun having them over. Come back again soon Laura and Jenney!

Belly Update

Here I am at 29 weeks. I only have 11 left! YEAH! Also look at this cute little onsie my sisters got me with cute little BYU-I socks from my sister Laura!!!
I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day! We went down to The Outer Banks with Jordan's Sister Ashley and her husband Davaughn. It was a lot of fun! We left Friday night and stayed through Monday. We grilled out, bummed around at the beach, and just had a good time together! We had an awesome beach house right on the beach! These pictures were taken in the beach house. Just so you know I don't have my apartment decorated like I live at the beach..even though I would love to live at the beach!

Ashley and me
29 weeks.
Again. So I know these aren't the best pictures because of the lighting and I am wearing all black but they will do.
This dress I think makes me look really big but I guess I am in my 3rd trimester so I should be getting big either way.

I have some more pictures of us at the beach. I will post those soon. I have to get them off Jordan's camera first. So stay tuned....:)
