Lincoln is here *pretend I am humming "Hail to the Chief"*

Well, these ended up in reverse chronological order, and it would take me 7 years to sort them out, and I only have about 20 minutes until this little cutie will be hungry again, so mix and match, or start at the bottom and ENJOY. As for me, I will be enjoying watching the cute little faces he is making in his sleep.

Not much new here...

... but I just wanted to show you a picture of the little house we are renting when we move to Ohio in August. It has hardwood floors throughout, W/D hookups in the basement, and you now know as much about the inside of it as I do. But it is less than a mile to campus, a few blocks from the school we want to send B to, equally close to a great big park, has plenty of storage (basement AND garage), is the price we need, recently became available, and appears to be a lovely answer to prayers!

Oh by the way, we are moving to Ohio in August.

Things I would have taken a picture of this week had my camera not been broken by a toddler.

My camera is broken, so here's what I would have taken pictures of IF it was functioning.

This is my pregnant belly- trust me, it has grown. I am starting to suspect there's not enough room in this body for the both of us. Also, I'm getting a little nervous about surgery- mostly the panic attack I get after the spinal block/losing control of my body from the ribs down, but before going loopy and thus contented. Well, and also the whole taking care of a newborn while skin, muscles and a major organ are trying to grow back together.
Mostly though, I'm excited to meet the little guy, and SO excited it is so soon!

This past weekend we drove to Ft. Collins to check out CSU and for Jason's assistantship interview. Naturally I was in constant alertness for possible signs of labor as we drove though the random snow storm that would have really spiced up the trip. But now we are back, and it was a great trip! The city/school/ ward were all lovely and the hotel had cable so the kids were fantastically content.

And last but not least, Jason is bringing me entertainment to no end with a new pedometer challenge at work. He lost it at the park last night and spend an hour walking back and forth across the park, getting more aggravated with each uncounted step he had to take before he found it. You would have thought he lost a diamond as opposed to the little $3 plastic thingy. The pedometer was found and now Jason can return to his all day potty dance that is his effort to get in more steps. I'm counting on that to distract me while I'm on the operating table.

Happiness does not depend on what happens outside of you, but on what happens inside of you.
