Showers, bumps, thumbs, tongues and more...

I have so much to blog about...


Here is my most recent accomplishment! I had four major projects this semester and this Ethiopia poster is one of the four. I almost have all of the projects done and all my clinicals at the psych unit are complete! A few more tests and finals and then I can enjoy a new baby.


I had a shower over Christmas in Utah hosted by my mother-in-law. It was so fun to see all of Jeff's extended family and to hang out with his past neighbors and friends. I was so happy to have his grandma there and to get the pink quilt for Braelyn. A few weeks ago, Grandma Ella past away. She had such a wonderful life and I'm so glad I had the chance to meet her and learn from her.

My second shower was hosted by Summer and my friend Brittney. It was fabulous and I was so grateful to all who came. I received so many great gifts and I'm so excited to dress baby Braelyn, she is going to be one stylin' little girl!


My little sister, Alexa, surprised me with a week trip to visit. It was so much fun to have her here and I just keep begging her to move here with me. She was at the baby shower, an ultrasound and we spent lots of time talking and playing card games. I love you sister!

Braelyn is growing! We have had lots of extra ultrasounds because both her and I were measuring small. In the Dr's words, "You are small, not too small, and she is small, but not too small." We are still having regular ultrasounds to monitor her growth because she has a small belly compared to the rest of her body.

Here she is sucking her thumb...(I think a bad habit has already begun)

This one is her sticking out her tongue at us :)


Another reason for the ultrasounds is my bump is measuring small. The doctor isn't sure exactly why, but thinks I may be carrying her low and more in my back than the average pregnant girl :) We are just glad our little girl keeps and growing, kicking and developing!

It doesn't look small to me, but here it is at week 36! Less than a month to go.


My friend, Erin, made me this quilt and sent it all the way to Kentucky. It is so adorable! As you can see cousin Taylor is obviously already jealous! Thanks Erin, I can't wait to have her all wrapped up.
