Magic Trick!

Pregnancy is so bizzare. Just to give you an example, there are funny feelings, wild emotions and the obvious body-shape change, of course. But what really gets me is this: From the front/back I don't look pregnant!

But from the side...

Hey baby!

There's A Hole In My Wallet

Well, I have offically outgrown all of my "regular" clothes. As a result, a serious shopping trip was in order. The weekend started with a glorious surprise from Chris: A prenatal massage!! It was fabulous! It was his treat to me while he left early for his trip to Breckenridge. An hour of pure delight and relaxation! I am completely ready to handle being pregnant now. :) After, I met up with my friend Stacey and we headed to the mall where she helped me to dive into wild world of maternity clothes. We spent hours in Old Navy Maternity and GAP Maternity spending way too much money, having way too much fun and creating an entire wardrobe that I could finally be comfortable and expand in. It was GREAT!! The thing I was most proud of was that I only bought 2 things that WEREN'T on sale! I got a TON of stuff for a great deal.

When Stacey and I had sufficiently done enough damage in the stores, we hit the highway and headed west to Breckenridge to meet our hubbies and friend. It ended up being a great weekend. We went to an outdoor concert and heard two great, unique bands and then spent the evening enjoying food, laughter and Breckenridge's original brews (not me, of course). Sunday brought one final day of skiing for the boys and a day of putzing around the house for me. It really was a great weekend.

Our new camera from Dad and Rose arrived today! Woo hoo! It is charging in the docking station as we speak, so pictures of our place will be up soon!!!

In other news, my end-of-first-trimester-checkup was cancelled on Tuesday because my OB unexpectedly took a leave of absence and did not indicate when he will be returning! Yikes! As a result, I had to switch doctors and have my appointment moved to next Monday. Oh well, it just means we'll get an even better picture of the baby! :)

More soon.

Not Quite Fallen Off The Face of the Earth

Whoa! April 3rd? What have we been thinking?!?!? It has been far too long since our last update!

Life in the mile high D-town has been quite crazy since our last post. We were so lucky to have visitors for two weekends in a row (Mom and then my best friend, Kate) and then it was Easter! It is hard to believe that three weeks can fly by so quickly! We have slowly been making the transition into our new place. Since we had an entire month to move out of the apartment, we have taken our sweet time with getting all the "unneccesaries" over to our house. Now that we have just about a week left, we seem to be scrambling. So what are we doing about it?? Going to Breckenridge for the weekend! It is the last weekend that all the major resorts are open, so Chris and Matt are going to get two final days of the slopes in while Stacy and I relax in the coffee shops and go to a concert. After the move, being on the interview committee at school, driving back and forth to the new job site in Loveland (Chris) and learning how to deal with all the crazy pregnancy hormones (BOTH of us), we are in DEFINITE need of a mini-vacation. :)

Chris's job has been going really well. He is just now getting started at a new job site about an hour north of Denver. It is a pretty large project and he seems excited to be a part of it. He was just reminded this week that he will have his annual review in a few weeks. Annual review! It is so hard to believe that we have lived her for nearly a year already! Time has flown!

On the school front, my job has been keeping me incredibly busy. Besides the fact that my students have discovered their hormones with the arrival of spring, my principal also asked me to be part of the interview committee for next year's hires. It has been quite the experience! It has definitely taught me a lot about what it takes to be a good teacher. We only have 6 weeks left of the school year... or 30 days if you are a teacher and have the counting down to a science. ;)

On pregnancy: The pregnancy is continuing to go well. Chris and I will go for my 12-week check up/ultrasound on Tuesday. We will get to hear the heartbeat for the first time, which we are both really excited about! Physically, I have been challenged a bit with morning sickness and fatigue, but it is definitely waning as I am nearing the second trimester. Bring on that "babymoon"!

Pictures: Our camera is still not up to par, but we got a lovely surprise from my dad and step-mom...they are sending us a new one! We are so excited and will take TONS of picture of the new place and my not-so-flat-tummy as soon as it arrives.

More soon.
Lots of Love.
Go Nuggets.
Go Avalanche.

Alive and Well

Just a quick note to let you all know that we are both alive and well. We were finally able to close and begin moving into our new place on Wednesday. We are slowly getting settled in thanks to a visit from Mom and some of our friends. We had to put lifting heavy items on hold for a few days because Chris cut his thumb and had to get stiches! Thank heavens that we have a few weeks left to still move! Anyway, we will post pictures of the new place as soon as we get settled and have the internet. It might be a few days...our address didn't even exist in the Comcast database! Have a great week and we will be in touch soon!
