Someone's been busy....

And it isn't me. I'm lucky when I can peel my lazy butt off the couch to do the dishes or anything else productive. Well I can't say that I haven't prepared at all....I did get some of these.
But I'm still grateful that my Mom has started preparing some other little things for me. We don't even know what it is yet and she's already gone buck wild crocheting all these cute little baby things.
It's all so cute and tiny. My mom is so not the Martha Stewart type so it's funny to picture her crocheting every night. We find out what we're having this Thursday so I can only imagine how crazy she's going to go when she can do totally boy or totally girl things.
I still can't hardly believe I'm pregnant to be honest. Hopefully the ultrasound will make things seem a little more real. Darin and I are both really excited but I'm kind of scared and nervous too. I mean having someone depend entirely on you. It's a little insane. I can hardly take care of myself sometimes. I still feel like such a little kid, I just can't imagine having one too.
It's a little bit sad too, knowing that it's never going to be just me and Darin again. That sounds so selfish but I've just really enjoyed our time together and I'm grateful that we've had 3 1/2 years of it just being us. But I'm definitely not oblivious to the fact that our whole world is going to change when the baby comes.
(This is my favorite thing so far that my mom has made....this beautiful white blessing blanket.)And then I'm so excited too. It's such a fun new chapter of our lives, and we're getting so excited to be parents. I know it's going to be such a blessing and I'm grateful that there haven't been any complications so far. I'll be sure to let everyone know what kind we're having after we've gone to our appointment on Thursday!


My dorky, funny, crazy 18 year old little brother just left for the air force. What!?! I can't even believe it myself. Mom, Scottie, and Nick drove up from Vegas so we could throw Nick a going away party. He opened gifts....
We enjoyed being all together (it doesn't happen very often).
And me, my mom, and my sisters all showed off our fake pregnant stomachs (except mines not fake). It's a little bit scary that theirs looks more real than mine.
Then we all got together and took some sibling pictures. Honestly I can't remember the last time we were all together to do family pictures. I think it was at least 10 years ago. Kudos to Darin for taking the great pictures.

I'm proud of Nick for making this decision, but I'm also a little sad. Obviously because it's scary, but also just because I can't believe we're all grown up now. My other 2 sisters have kids, I'm pregnant, and now Nicks leaving for the Air Force. It's scary how fast life passes you by.

I was also amazed at how much more patriotic I feel just because he went out. We went to the Riverton Rodeo on Friday, and I honestly got a little teary eyed when they were doing the National Anthem. I mean little brother is serving in the military now. I'm so grateful for all those that risk their lives every day for our freedom. We love you so much Nick and wish you the best!
I just had to throw this one in, because I like it. It made me feel like we were getting our engagement pictures taken all over again.

Miss Sadie Mae

Oh Heidi, I'll forever remember this as the day you found out I was pregnant.

I wanted to tell you in a special way, but I should have known you would ask me if I was pregnant or wanting a baby just like EVERY other time we talk.

So I can't say it was a lucky guess since you ask all the time, but I do think you had the intuition to ask right then. I guess that's what being best friends are about.

I can't believe how much things have changed. I'm pregnant now. You already have this beautiful, amazing little girl. We're pretty lucky I think.

Well, really, I'm the lucky one to have a friend like you. You mean a lot to me.

Miss Sadies pictures were so easy. I'm only sorry it took so long for me to get them finished. I guess I've been a little preoccupied. :)

I hope you love them. I sure love you guys!
