new fun things

the past two weeks have been super busy and i haven't been blogging at all. i at least manage to read your blogs to keep up to date, but rarely do i comment and i haven't even had time to update my snippets column. so tonight i am making time because i have a lot to update. 

it was our fifth year anniversary this past friday. five years has gone by so fast and a lot has happened in our lives in five years. we have lived in two houses, had four dogs (now just the one), 5 different jobs between us, and many joys and a few heartaches. the Lord has blessed us so much through everything and we both have grown more spiritually in the past five years than maybe ever in our lives. i am so thankful for all we experienced together. 

we both bought phones this week and decided to give them to each other for our anniversary - maybe that is the new thing you give for five years of marriage. pete's is blue and mine is red. they are touch screen too and i love it so far. 
for 3/4 of our fourth year of marriage i have been pregnant which has brought on a whole new dynamic to our relationship. my pregnancy has been very healthy and a great experience for me. i have enjoyed being pregnant and looking forward to our new little girl to arrive. being parents will be a whole new thing for us and we are excited and a bit nervous for all the responsibility it brings. i have been spending the past few weeks getting all the "stuff" ready for the baby to use. we have all the bedding and furniture, i washed all the newborn - 3 month clothes and blankets, socks, booties, hats, all of that stuff. i have made multiple trips to various stores to exchange things and i currently have a pile of stuff waiting to be returned when i am sure that is all that will need to be returned (i can only take things back without a receipt twice or something like that?) 

i still need to do important things like find a pediatrician, pack our hospital bag, oh, and think of a name for baby g! but she will come when she is ready and we will be "ready" too. 

here i am at 35 weeks of pregnancy, only four weeks to go (at most) this is the biggest i have been so far, we will see how much more i can grow! 

now on to some pictures. i am going to put them in a separate post but they are from the baby shower on may 1st, the baby room, and dave and tina's wedding yesterday. hope you enjoy.
