Boy or Girl?

In less than a week we will find out the gender of our baby!! Todd and I could not be more excited. Todd from the beginning has said girl, and the longer time has gone on the more I'm convinced too. I think we will all be surprised if its a boy! I don't care either way... I just can't wait to meet this little baby.

Now what's your guess? Boy or Girl?

15 Weeks

Weeks 1-15 (well more like 4-15 because who knows before then anyways) :

  • I'm due May 20, 2012
  • Todd told me I was pregnant before I knew or had had any symptoms
  • Todd also thinks it's a Girl - I am starting to believe him
  • I have not had a feeling/dreamt about what the gender is
  • Twilight: Breaking Dawn has officially freaked me out of labor - No, I do not think I am having a vampire child
  • I have not been sick or experienced morning sickness - thank goodness, I feel blessed
  • I have been so sleepy that I did not paint my nails for 1 month (for those of you who know me well, I paint my nails weekly) It wasn't the time it takes to paint them that discouraged me, but the mere thought of having to wait for them to dry before I could lay down and nap.
  • I have hated raw meat, laughing cow cheese, and Culvers burgers - still do. Even writing about these makes me want to gag.
  • I LOVE breakfast food - waffles, french toast, pancakes, doughnuts - anything bad for you in the morning :)
  • Only 5 more weeks until we find out the gender
  • I am pregnant with one of my best friends/cousins - she is 2 weeks behind me and pregnant with twins!! 
Just thought I would write down some thoughts to remember this amazing experience. I will post some pictures when I feel like I have a baby bump instead of a breakfast bump.

Turkey Day!!

This year Thanksgiving was spent with the Labrum side of the family. We had a great time as always and love to be with family. I have really slacked on taking pictures and am now regretting it. Oh well...

Pumpkin Patch

I can't believe I'm such a blog slacker!! I have so much to update....we are enjoying our new place and can't wait for the holidays! Here are some pictures from our pumpkin patch adventure. We pretty much live in farm land so it wasn't hard to find cheap pumpkins!

2 years of lovin' and a lot more to come...

Yesterday, for our anniversary, Todd surprised me with tickets to Beauty and the Beast in Chicago! It was so amazing! I absolutely loved it! Belle and Gaston were fabulous. Later he took me to Wildfire, this really neat restaurant downtown. It was such a fun day!

Today is our 2 year anniversary!! I can't believe how fast it has gone and at the same time its like we have been together for as long as I can remember. It has been a wonderful 2 years. I am so excited for our new adventures and all the exciting things we have ahead of us! I love you Labrum!!!

After our fun stay in Cedar City, we headed down to Oceanside to stay with the fam. We had such an amazing stay and did tons of fun activities. We owe a huge thank you to Mom and Dad for showing us such a great time!

About to ride the ferris wheel...

I know this is blurry, but its the only one I have will all the bright lights!

Bike rides in La Jolla. Thanks for the early anniversary present Mom and Dad!

La Jolla

This garage was covered by vines...I thought this was pretty amazing/fancy. We saw some gorgeous houses on our bike ride by the beach.

After an super yummy meal of Indian food in the gas lamp district, we decided to indulge at The Ghiradelli Shop. Chocolate peanut butter sunday....yes please!!

We checked out the new and improved Mormon Battalion in Old Town. It was super neat. They have really cool themed rooms with a great message to watch in each of them. They even take your picture afterwards and let you pan for gold. If you haven't been, you should go! Pretty sure I have my eyes closed in this one - oh well...

Padre's Game

Me and Grandma

Can't wait till our next visit. I can't believe that next time we will be visiting all the way from Bloomington, Indiana!! Until next time....

Cedar City Cabin!

Before we headed to CA, my family met us in Cedar City for a few nights. The first night we drove down to St. George to see The Little Mermaid at Tuacahn. I love that is gorgeous! I thought Sebastian and Chef Louis were the best! 

Chef Louis


Back in the cedar city mountains we went to the ice cave, but it was still too full of snow to go inside.

 Checked out the natural springs. Everything was so pretty!

Thanks Mom and Dad! We had a blast!

Our First Trip to Bloomington

Todd and I had the opportunity to visit Bloomington a couple of weeks ago and we loved it! Ron and Sherrie were able to come with us which was super helpful and fun. We were even able to nail down an apartment for the fall which was our main purpose in visiting. It feels much better to know where we will be living in the fall. We also got to visit the law school. The whole campus is gorgeous. I was amazed at how green the campus was. We can't wait for the fall!!

 Our future apartment!
