It's a BOY!!!!

Yes it's true... I'm pregnant! 22 weeks in fact. And no I couldn't really believe it either! 

When I took that test I really wasn't expecting it to be positive and when it was I didn't know what to think. So many emotions ran through me, I was excited, scared, nervous and unbelievably happy! I couldn't stop smiling and couldn't wait to tell Mark. 

After all the happiness, then came the morning, afternoon and the all night sickness... I was so sick I couldn't do anything. My house was dirty for about 16 weeks, the laundry never got done and dinner wasn't made very often. Now that I am 22 weeks I couldn't be feeling any better, I wish I could be pregnant all the time feeling like this! It really is amazing how Heavenly Father erases your memory of all the bad things that come along with getting these sweet spirits here. 



This whole time I've been pregnant I was so convinced that it was a girl but to my surprise.... It's a boy! I really can't believe that we're having a boy. I am so excited to have a cute little Mark running around my house, playing with his dad and cuddling with his mom. It's so crazy to me how much i LOVE this little babe inside me right now. I can't wait to meet him and can't wait to be his mama. I'm so grateful that I'm able to become a mom and bring this sweet spirit to this earth. 

Definitely a boy :)

Goodbye 2012....

Its crazy how time flies and how you forget everything that goes on in a whole year...
So this year I'm going to be better at writing all of our memories down. That way we can look back on all the fun things we do and remember the good ol days. I'm going to make an extra effort into being 'that girl' that takes pictures of every thing we do and write it down. Mark will probably hate it, but he'll thank me one day. 

This year for our calendar i pretty much summed everything up, that i could remember, in a couple of paragraphs here it its...

Mark & Cede 2012 Highlights

This year has been so much fun and we have so much to be thankful for.

Mark has been working so hard this year, loving his job and working with Doug has been awesome. He’s been so busy and we’ve been thankful for his job and that he’s able to provide for us.

We’ve had some fun adventures this year! Our first one started off with a trip to California in February. I finally convinced Mark to take me to Disneyland! I had so much fun and Mark really enjoyed the churros. J Needless to say we probably won’t be going back for a while, but it was still a good time!

Then, again, in July we were invited to go back to Cali with my brother and his family. This time we spent most of the day at the beach, playing games and eating out, a lot. We had so much fun and hope we will get to go back next year.

Next we made our annual trip up to Alaska! This was definitely my favorite trip by far. We had so much fun with all the family and the new rec room is awesome! We loved watching movies in the theater room, hiking, and sight seeing! We can’t wait to go back up there next year!

Finally, the biggest adventure and news of all, we are expecting baby #1 this May!!!! We seriously are so excited to bring a baby into this world and also scared out of our minds! But really, we’re excited! We are feeling so blessed and can’t wait to meet our sweet baby.

Overall this year has been so wonderful. We are so thankful for all the blessings we have and are really excited for what the Lord has in store for us this next year. We’re so thankful for all of our family and all you do for us. We love you guys so much and look forward to this next year with you all. 

We really do have a lot to be thankful for this year and we are really EXCITED for whats to come in 2013.
