Weekend in Logan

For Valentines weekend and to celebrate our news of being pregnant, Steve planned a weekend for us up in Logan. It was a lot of fun. So much fun that we forgot to take any pictues. I am way bummed about that, but I at least will have this blog to remember it.

We left Saturday morning and stopped for lunch at Cafe Sabore.... MMM that was fantastic mexican food. we then headed to the hotel to check in. He got us a room at the Marriot. It was beautiful. We swam in their pool and then went out and looked at a couple stores around the town before we had our couples massages. HEAVEN I tell ya, I really needed one of those too so perfect timing. After we went to The Bluebird for dinner, we were told we had to try their food. Well, we got there are they were only serving a Valentines Buffet. The buffet looked awful so we went next door to a steak house.. Yea they were serving a buffet too. I really didn't feel in the mood for a buffet but seemed like everyone in town was serving one. We finally just made reservations at Texas Roadhouse and it was fantastic but after the 2 hour wait anything would have been good to me.
The next morning we had breakfast at Angies which I would totally recomend and we headed home.

Steve planned the entire weekend. The only thing I knew about was the massages. It was so much fun to have a surprise like that. I have such a sweet husband.
We planned on taking a couple other trips this year but after finding out about the baby, we feel it's best to save our money. So, Logan was probalby our one and only trip for this year but it was worth it.

Thankful Heart!

Today, I am so thankful for this man! I honestly don't know what I would do without him, especially with an addition to our family coming up. If anything ever happend to him... I don't know how I could go on.
Why am I even thinking about this? Well, someone in my neighborhood came home on Saturday to find her husband dead. I can't even imagine what she was feeling, what was going through her head. I don't know this neighbor and I don't think I have even seen them really, but my heart goes out to their family..the wife and mother of a 2 year old.

Of course after I heard about this I made Steve promise me he wouldn't die. Reality? He can't promise me because we never know when something like this could happen I am going to make a promise to Steve to work hard every day to show him how much I love him, and appreciate all his hard work for our family. He will never have to doubt how much I love him!

What a Relief

Since Sunday, I have been having some bad cramping and it has just gotten worse. I was worried and so I called my Dr. who is absolutely amazing! She was concerned and got me in right away for an ultrasound to make sure everything was ok. Indeed it is. It was so neat and so calming to know for sure everything was fine. They said that the ultrasound showed everything to be perfectly normal. They also did blood work to make sure. What a relief!

I am so thankful for technology and that in 10 minutes you can see, and know how things are inside of your body! It's an amazing thing, and really helped calm my nerves today and it was nice to see that even though I would be blessed to have twins, it's only one baby this time :)

Everything is even more real now that I was able to see that there really IS a baby in there. I know I took 5 pregnancy tests, and had multiple blood work done which all said I was pregnant but it was still hard to really believe, and not doubt that it was true until today. What a great feeling and a perfect way to start the weekend.

Now I am off to a yummy dinner hosted by THIS fantastic girl!

Eating Healthy Still...

So, even though I found out I was pregnant I decided I wasn't going to stop my eating healthy and working out. I have done pretty well, especially with the eating well. Now, If I could just figure out the working out part I am so extremely tired that I can't make myself do it. Any suggestions?

The Poem

This is the poem we used to tell Steve's parents that we are expecting.. we also used it in part of what we did for my nieces.

A Gift For You

I do not have a face to see, or put inside a frame.
I do not have soft cheeks to kiss; I don't yet have a name.

You can't hold my tiny hands, nor whisper in my ear.
It's still too soon to sing a song, or cuddle me so near.

But all will change come October, 3rd when they say I'm due.
I'm your new grandson or granddaughter; I can't wait till I meet you.

All I ask between now and then is your patience while I grow.
I promise I'll be worth the wait, because of all the love we'll know.

So as you're waiting patiently, please pray lots of prayers for me.
I cannot wait to be a part of this wonderful family!

Katy , Steve and Baby Girl or Boy
