On top of his new job, I go to my orientation for school on the 3rd of August, and I am getting extremely nervous about being in school while being pregnant, with a husband who is gonna be gone. Maybe this is all a mixture of pregnancy hormones (which according to Dustin are on HIGH this past week), and my easily triggered stress, but I don't feel ready for all this:(
On the opposite end of the spectrum, I am VERY grateful for these changes. I know that they are all for the better, and HUGE blessings in our lives. We are finally working towards our careers and building a family, and I couldn't be happier. But even the best of times can be a little scary when you don't know what to expect, right?!
Things are still looking good with the pregnancy. Our little one is kicking more than ever. Once we hit about 5 months, I could tell she suddenly became so much stronger. Her favorite time to move is whenever mommy lays down to relax for a bit!;) Makes relaxing even better! Dustin and I laid and watched my stomach move for the first time Tuesday morning, it's so crazy that we can not only FEEL her move, but also SEE it! I know once this little one gets here I am going to miss being able to feel her move every day...
I have now put on about 10 lbs!!! Doc says, although I am healthy and he is not worried, I need to gain weight just a little bit faster in order to hit at least 25 lbs at the end of all this, but I can assure you I am eating lots, and doing EVERYTHING I can to make sure this little gal is healthy.
We have been up to so much lately...I have recently started selling my watchbands/jewelry at Sunkyst Tans here in Salina, and Dust has stayed really busy with wreckers, also...We have finished the front yard, added shutters to the house, and I am re-finishing a desk that I bought at a yard sale! So much to post but...no camera...Once I get my battery charger back, I will post pictures!!!

We are at 20 weeks!
I feel absolutely GREAT.
I have definitely been growing, and so has our baby girl.
She is now the length of a BANANA from head to rump.
She is kicking a lot more. And I absolutely love it.
Daddy felt her for the first time the other night. It wasn't very strong but...he felt her.
His eyes lit up. I have been so excited for the day Dustin could feel her, it not only makes it more real for him, but we get to experience it together...
As for my eating habits:
I haven't been having any weird cravings lately. I just drink a lot of milk...at least its good for the baby;)
The bedding for the baby has finally came, and we are now going to begin on the nursery.
I LOVE decorating, and it has been so fun coming up with ideas for our little girl.
Her room colors are orange, pink, and green...;)
ONLY 4 MORE MONTHS TIL SHE IS HERE!

The 4th of July is my favorite holiday. (Well...that and Thanksgiving)
It's been almost 4 years since Dustin has celebrated in Salina, and almost 3 for me.
Way too long!
Since this year the 4th landed on a Sunday, all of the festivities were held on Saturday...
We had a great time going to the Gunnison and Salina parades, and the Salina rodeo...
Dustin and Cole drove a wrecker in the parade.
Had and Bry
Cody and Kim
Mom invited all of us kiddos over for a BBQ on the "official" 4th.
It was SO yummy.
We ate, played in the yard, reminisced, and had LOTS of laughs.
Jace and Cody
That night we watched fireworks at Dustin's parents house.
Measha, Darion, Shandee, and Taylen
*HAPPY BIRTHDAY DUSTIN *
Dustin turned 25 today.
We didn't go all out.
We had lunch, lounged around, and went to his softball games in Richfield...
His type of day...low key!
He MADE me promise not to buy him anything because he wanted to get shutters for the house instead. Always doing the practical thing...That's what I LOVE about him.
I made him a funfetti cake, his fave, and gave him a card.
As I have gotten older, I realize that less really is more!
Love you honey, I hope your day was everything you wanted. You are everything to me!;)
Better late than never...
April and Rowdy got married June 5th.
I was her Maid of Honor, and I must say, it really was an honor.
We had a great time in Mesquite, and were so happy we were able to be a part of their special day.
April was such a gorgeous bride.
Love you guys! Congratulations!
