Another day...

So I made it through another day. No baby Hudson yet. I think the Grandparents are relieved about that one. My parents, and Josh's mom won't be in town until this weekend for his scheduled birthday on the 8th. According to my mom I'm supposed to tell him to wait. Sorry mom, but I did just the opposite. I told him it was OK to come out at ANY TIME NOW. 

Since last night I've had a sore, cramped up right leg and foot. I can't massage it out, and bananas aren't doing the trick. I have cankles. (Kristin, you now know what that means!) I take a long, hot bath every night and just lay there trying to relax as much as I can. I LOVE baths. Give me a bath everyday for the rest of my life and I will be a happy woman.

I still have things to do around the house, and thought I would be able to get them done this week, but it turns out I just need to sit with my feet up and nap when I can. It's nice being home and having Gracie here because I can sleep in my own bed while she's napping, and I can eat whatever I want! I'm usually frantic in the mornings searching for food to pack up to take with me and half the time I end up taking nothing and eating PB sandwiches or "borrowing" Anthony and Jennifer's food. ;) Thanks guys.

I'm sooooo thankful that we've been lucky enough to keep our power on this whole time! Everyone else in the area has lost it and gotten it back, or are still without it. I'm pretty sure that the only time ours went out was while we were at the doctor's office yesterday. We got home and the clock's were flashing on and off and the heat had dropped a couple of degrees. I think someone is watching out for this really pregnant lady. I'm grateful for that.

We have 90% sealed the deal on the trailer! Thanks to Daniel and Kristin for helping us out to make it happen so fast--we couldn't have done it without your support! I never thought I'd be so excited to move into a trailer! Never! But, we will own our own place, basically, immediately and that eliminates paying $500/month for rent. Now if that doesn't help after having our first baby, I don't know what else would! We just have to figure out a way to move it over to the farm and once that's done we have to be out of our apartment by March 1st. Jordan and Kim will be our new neighbors! Yay!

Also, my car insurance went down because I just turned 25 last month! Only a $21 difference, but still-I think it's pretty awesome.

I am looking forward to getting my body back. I am looking forward to holding our baby boy. Sigh. I'm looking forward to our life together. I'm so grateful to have found Joshua Pike. He's my everything. I feel like we are two puzzle pieces that fit perfectly together. And we made a little person! Aaaah! I'm excited to see what features and characteristics he gets from each of us.

Yes, God is totally watching out for you, little pregnant lady! Can you imagine being without electricity NOW? Wow that would SUCK...

I am slightly jealous of you living next door to kim and jordan up there in beautiful KY out in the country.... we'll be there soon though!

Alright I am thinking about you ALL the time until this baby gets here! Tell him his aunt kristin loves him!!
