Moving on up!

Well, I'm failing at this blogging thing, but I'm going to keep at it. Today I am 26 weeks! It doesn't feel like it's been that long! I can feel Angus get stronger every day! He is *almost* kicking me in the ribs now! Colin and I really enjoy feeling him kick and punch and move around in there. It's neat to feel something that you made actually move and react to you! Angus and I have a fun game where I poke my tummy and he kicks me back, great mother/son bonding time already! I also make sure I play James Taylor daily, he will learn what good music is, quite young! I'm also officially in the double digit countdown! I was beginning to feel like I don't have much time to set stuff up, although I know that's nesting talking haha! But not being able to put stuff together, get stuff for my little man and make sure that I have all the stuff I need was getting to be frustrating! On top of all that I was beginning to feel so cluttered in this apartment, sure it's a big apartment, but Colin has gathered 29 years of stuff, and I have gathered 21 years of it. Total that's like 50 years of gathering stuff! Ok, so it's not THAT bad yet, but my kitchen was the worst part. I didn't have a place to put my big cookie sheets and cake pans other than on the counter! No pantry means that food goes in clear storage boxes or the table. Which brings me to the most exciting part... WE ARE MOVING! It's just 3 min. away, still in my ward, but it's a beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home! The backyard has lots of room for us to garden and BBQ and have friends over. The kitchen has a pantry, plenty of cabinet space, and lots more counter space! It also comes with a nice microwave, way better than what we have and it's an over the oven one! Angus' nursery is literally right next to our room. And we will have plenty of room in our bedroom for a bassinet! For a "starter" house, it's a pretty good one! We aren't just getting a step up in living conditions, more like 10 steps up! Every time we go there and drop stuff off we just wish we could stay there for good and we both have big goofy grins on our face! 

In other news, I have my 3D/4D ultrasound on Dec. 5th! Not only am I super excited to see my handsome little boy, I get to see my parents! We planned it so that they could come to it! I haven't had my family around much for the pregnancy which makes me sad :( so I made sure to plan it so they could be here for it! They are both really excited! And I'm super excited because I miss my family! They also never got to go to an ultrasound for themselves, since both me and Emma are adopted, so I figured next best thing is to have them come to one to see their very first grandchild! And when they come they will have their own room to sleep in! All in all, life is good and exciting! We are SO blessed!
