Well, my daddy has been training a little weightlifter in Heaven to send down to us...it's a BOY!!! When I first found out I was pregnant I had a feeling it was a boy, I knew my dad wouldn't have it any other way. The poor guy was as macho as they came, trained elite athletes and was stuck, I mean blessed, with three daughters. He always said he deserved a handy capped parking pass because surely having three girls made him disabled. He was only kidding, he loved having frilly girls! He always use to bribe us that if we named one of our kids after him he would pay for their college education...somehow he better find a way to hold up his end of the bargain ; ) We can't wait to meet the little guy! At times I feel so weird and not my self and then seeing the baby on the ultrasound makes my heart melt and remember it's all worth it.
AHHHH I don't know if I should cry, scream, be thankful or just plain scared!!! I've been doing a little bit of all of the above. If you've noticed, I haven't blogged in quite sometime. Needless to say, life has been just plain CRAZY! In addition to having our first baby, which Mandrew refers to as Skeletor, Rambo and now Egon, we have both accepted jobs in Yakima, WA and I'm moving there May 28th (I'll be back in Cali for Andy's graduation in June though). Oh and on the last day of visiting the Northwest I decided we were going to buy a house so I walked through one for 5 minutes, it felt right and I told Mandrew we were buying it...and WE DID!!! Well we are trying to... Going through the whole home buying experience has taught me that having more government control is the worst idea ever!!! They don't know jack, there's a million of crazy rules, I feel like I'm being watched by little hidden cameras! Yet somehow we want these morons to control our healthcare? grrr that's another topic for another post.
Anywho, we are very excited yet scared at the same time. We have loved our life in southern california pretty much foot loose and fancy free, as my mama would like to call it. Soon we'll have a little bundle of joy to keep us tied down and I am so thankful for that and the opportunity we have to become parents. I am so proud of Andy for doing so well in school in a very rigorous program. It's funny, people always ask me if PT school is tough because Andy never talks or complains about it. YES it has been tough, its a Doctorate degree for cryin' out loud!!! Thankfully, my husband is a worry free kind of guy because I do enough worrying for the both of us. We are excited for our future and we are sure going to miss our past.
p.s. there will be no belly pictures until I start looking fat and pregnant because right now I just look plain fat!
Andy is working as a Physical Therapist and I'm working as a Physican Assistant. Needless to say we have some pretty interesting conversations at the dinner table! We welcomed our sweet baby boy, Drew on October 20, 2011. We are excited for this next chapter in our lives and all the adventure it holds!
