Save it For a Rainy Day

Rainy days call for PJ's, Gilmore Girls, and blog updating. It's been a couple weeks so I figured now was the time.

We're getting closer to picking a name for our little girl. We have one we really like that we just aren't ready to commit to yet, but it's the only one we like enough to use so we're sticking with it for now. When it's official, we'll divulge the information.

I've been feeling very pregnant, which is scary when I still have 3 and a half more months of growing to go. My ribs ache all the time and I have yet to find a solution. I can feel her moving more and more which has been exciting. Only a couple more weeks and Cory should be able to feel her, too. Well, and those brave enough to touch my mass of a stomach.

The doctor is also keeping my due date of July 2nd which is awesome. I'm hoping he has plans for the 4th of July and he'll induce me whether or not I'm ready on the 2nd haha.

My mom and I picked out the fabric for the crib quilt and bumper pads. I knew what colors I wanted but with my lack of decorating, I figured it would take me forever to pick out something I liked. We walked into the fabric store and almost instantly found something I loved!! I am so stinking excited!!!!! I can't wait till it's all made and we have a baby's room and crib to put it all together with! And it's not way too pink which was a huge selling point for me.

We're still set to close on the house on the 17th. We're so excited!!! I went to check out our new ward on Sunday, just to sacrament. It's going to be a HUGE change from the ward we have now. We absolutely are crazy about the ward we're in now. It's full of the most loving, caring, and fun people. But they're about 90% older people and kids aren't a huge commodity. Which is fine and we're going to miss it so much! However, in the new ward, it's about 90% kids with some adults speckled in. I can't remember the last time I was in a sacrament meeting that noisy. The isles were lined with baby carriers (we'll fit right in) and almost everyone who bore their testimony had a toddler in their arms or a youngin' attached to their leg that they ended up having to chase around the stage. The ward is really young which makes me excited for the prospects of making friends. It's just going to be hard to leave the ward we've always felt at home in.

Cory has been so fabulous through everything we've had going on and with me. He's always an angel to me but he's been even more so lately. For example, he's been working a lot so when we move we'll have the money to buy the things we're going to need. I've missed him like crazy even though I get to see him every day. For some reason this weekend was really hard on me and I was feeling depressed about not having him around. Being pregnant doesn't help that either. Anyway, he came home last night and after dinner turned on basketball and settled down. For some reason that upset me and I just went and laid on the couch and cried. I needed a good cry. He came out a few minutes later when he figured out I wasn't joining him and asked if I was ok. Once he saw I was crying he said, "Come here (and held out his hand to help me up). You don't need to cry. Come cuddle with me." He walked me into our room hand in hand and spent the rest of the night cuddled up with me, playing with my hair - which is my FAVORITE thing. I married the most amazing person in the world. Why he loves me so much, I have no idea. But I'm grateful for it every single day. Life is complete with him and I love him so much. I can't wait to have our first home together and bring our daughter into this world. When I think about that special moment of just us in the hospital right after she's born, a family finally together, I cry every time. I'm crying right now. Anyway, we're really happy with how things are going and I'm more than happy to be living life with Cory.
