Half way there

So I am half way through this pregnancy and I am feeling so good. I am growing very fast this month. I feel like my belly has sort of just popped out there. No more wearing my regular clothes. I guess I am going to have to start wearing maternity clothes. They just aren't very stylish. I am fighting it as long as I can get away with it.
It has been really neat to start feeling the baby actually move. Before it was just like flutters and I knew it was movement but this is different and so wonderful. Last night I was laying in bed reading. I had my hand on my belly and there was a hard kick right under my hand. It actually startled me. It was so awesome. I know I have done the pregnancy thing a few times before but it still amazes me. I love it.
I don't necessarily enjoy getting big or losing my favorite sleeping position. There are some things that stink about it. But, the idea that a life is growing is a miracle. I am truly blessed.

Happy Birthday Jonathan

Today Jonathan turns 36. We have celebrated the last 18 birthdays together. That is crazy.. I have been with him now for half of his life. Jonathan is such a good man. He has such a strong testimony of Jesus Christ. He is passionate about so many things. You will never find him sitting on a fence about anything. He has the desire to learn constantly and amazes me almost daily with something new that he has learned. This last year he has memorized most of the Declaration of Independance because it is important to him. He is a good husband, great father and my very best friend. How blessed I am that he is part of my life..

That is the best word to describe my feelngs. I had completely convinced myself that I was having a boy. There is a reason for that and a story that goes along with it but none of that matters now because I am having a girl. We are all very excited but no one is as excited as Haylee. When the tech told us, Haylee turned to me and said " see I knew it the whole time." I still was not convinced. So the doctor came in and looked at the baby and checked again and said "I am 100 percent positive it is a girl." so there we have it. I have no names at all. I guess I have a few more months to think about it.

So I will be getting my ultrasound done on Monday the 16th. We are all very excited for this. So, I guess I will join the bandwagon and ask your opinion on what you think we will be having...

I will post and let you know when I do.
