Wow! It's been awhile!

Sorry it has been so long!
Holiday Update
The holidays and everything else kept me away. Christmas was very fun! We spent Christmas with my family and had a great time. I didn't get much of a break though, work is so busy during that time of year. My brother Tate came in town from Kansas and we spent a lot of time playing games with him and family. Tony and I tried to limit the gifts to each other this year, just to save some money. We said no gifts, but I can't do that. So I bought him a cool cardigan at Banana Republic (It was on sale :) I hid it so he wouldn't know I broke our deal. I pulled it out on Christmas and he was all surprised! He really liked it so I was happy. He really surprised me though when he pulled something out he wanted to surprise me with! I really didn't want or thought he would get me anything. He got me a Nintendo DS! I randomly wanted one haha! I know I know I'm a little 13 year old asking for a DS. They are pretty fun though and I have this game called brain age that helps keep your brain on it's toes :) I also got mariokart, which Tony has played WAY more then me lol. The holidays were great.

Preggo Update
I posted a pregnant pic just because I always want to see how people look when they are pregnant and it seems that none of them ever wanted to get their pic taken. Well now I know why! I feel like a fat cow! The last thing I want is a pic to remember how fat I am haha! I am almost 27 weeks along and I already think pregnancy last to long. I know what you are thinking good luck in the next three months! I can already tell they are going to drag by way to slow :( I still have not purchased any maternity clothes and I think I'm going to be forced to very soon. At my last Dr. appt my Dr. looked at my pants (which are held together with a hair elastic!) and said " I don't think you will be able to pull that off for much longer!" I know, but I don't want to buy maternity pants!! My belly button is still a inny!! Yay!! It keeps getting more and more shallow though :( I have a crib already! I found a really cute one that was on sale and I had a coupon on top of the sale, so I went ahead and got it. (Thanks to my in laws who bought it for us!!) It is all set up in our second bedroom, it's kind of weird to see it. I still can not picture myself with a baby! I feel like I'm just playing house or something. I think I'm going to have a HUGE reality check when I can actually hold him!!! SO WEIRD!! Hopefully I don't freak out. I do have a question? How does bath time work? Do I bathe him in the sink? Do I buy a bath bed thingy? Our tub is pretty deep so I think that could be kind of hard to bath him in at first. What did you do? We still have not setteled on a name. We used to battle on names, now we just don't really talk about it cause we get to mad! lol! We are crack heads :) We will figure it out eventually I guess. Well sorry it has been awhile, but please leave comments with any advise you wish you had before you had kids! I'm sure I will need it! Especially breastfeeding, I'm very curious how that all works :) Thanks for being so helpful! Love you all!
