I knew I would love her, but the idea I had of what that love would be like, is nothing like how I feel for her.

There is no way I can explain what it is like to stare at her and think to myself, "I made this."

My dad is amazing...

By the way this is a secret still... Jake doesn't know, and will crap his pants when he finds out...

My dad bought four front row and center tickets to see Ryan Adams and the Cardinals today!!

We saw him last year and it was an AMAZING show.. I can't wait to see him again, and this time up close.

i still can't believe that my dad actually bought these tickets.. My mom is going to kill him when she finds out how much it was. 


the only bad part.. is I will have a 4 week old baby at the time, and I don't know how I will feel about leaving him or her for a while..... : /

So funny story.... (to me anyways)

Saturday after everyone had left from my shower I was laying down on the couch eating chips and salsa.  A few minutes later I get this crazy intense pain cramping and pressure.  For some reason I just assumed that it was gas or something and was stuck or something.  It would come every few minutes and last a couple minutes.  During the time it was there I couldn't talk or have anyone talk to me.  I felt like I had to go the bathroom but I didn't...  The only thing that helped was getting on my hands and knees with my mom rubbing my lower back.

Anyways, this lasted for maybe 30-45 minutes and so I just assumed the salsa had upset my stomach really bad or something.

WELL.... I go to my bible study last night and my OB is in my group.  I tell her and Mandy about this horrible gas I experienced and they both laughed at me.  Apparently those were contractions and not gas at all...  
The good news is my OB says that since I am already dilating and having intense contractions right away, I will most likely have a shorter labor (my chances are higher promises)  so thats awesome.  Also, its nice to know what to expect now so I can be a little more ready for it all.  However, Im getting really nervous.  That wasn't exactly a piece of cake by any means and it was only like 45 minutes... how on earth am I going to make it like that for hours??? AHH 

Pray for me please!

This weekend was really nice.  It went by WAY too fast.
I have a lot more photos  I wanted to put up from the shower, but they are all on my Dad's computer so... sorry you all will just have to wait!

In other news... The day of my shower is officially the last day I think I will be able to wear my wedding rings for the remainder of the pregnancy.  It appears that I am at the awesome water retention stage.... 

Dear baby, 
Im ready for you to come out now : D.......
