This year Nick and I had a really great Valentines Day. We ended up giving each other presents on Friday during Nick's lunch break. I gave my wonderful husband a collection of The BEATLES in mono. Every time we would go to Costco he would ask for them, but I refused to pay over $200 for something we didn't need. So with Valentines Day I got on Ebay and bought them for about half of the price. He was so excited and already has all 12 cds on his ipod. Nick ended up buying me a great set of earrings, a matching necklace and some Scentsy scents. I wore my new jewelry for the first time to church on Sunday. I actually got a comment from a friend about it telling my husband that he should give her husband some tips. It made me feel really good since my husband is hardly ever the romantic type and I normally pick out my own presents. We didn't really do much, but we enjoyed our time together.
On the 30th of January we moved into our new house. We were very lucky to get to move in because our closing date was pushed back a week. We have felt very blessed and anxious for everything to work out these past few months. We still have boxes to unpack and lots of painting in our future! We are LOVING our first home though and I LOVE our new kitchen!
Come visit us!
We have also added a new puppy to our family. We adopted a male puppy and named him Toby. I am finding that I am not really a pet person. I don't like them jumping on me, licking etc. However, Nick and Jayden are both dog people and love our 2 dogs. It is kind of funny how our family personalities are. It seems Aaryn and I are very much a like. And Jayden is so much like Nick it is scary. I really wonder how our next child is going to be like. Which brings me to my next topic.
On Tuesday the 2nd of Feb. we had our ultrasound at 18 weeks and found out that we are having yet another BOY! I have really been having a hard time being excited for this little guy. I just had my hopes set so high for a girl. I was so ready for pink, and bows, and of course cute little church dresses. I have really been trying to come up with a name and nursery ideas, but I just haven't found anything I am happy with. I was so excited to decorate my first real nursery in our first home together and now I am finding myself stalled. I am also very nervous to have 3 little boys running around.
On Monday we officially started potty training Aaryn. Hopefully he will be able to get the hang of it quickly like Jayden did. So far he knows how to make himself go he just needs to figure out that it isn't ok to go in his underwear. We will see how the week goes, but I foresee lots of laundry in my future.
