32 Weeks!!!!

So here is a little prego update...

There are only 8 short weeks left until our "little monkey" (as Joe so fondly calls him) will make his appearance. I'm excited and a bit freaked out at the same time. I cannot wait to meet this little guy who likes to do rolls and kicks within the belly. I cannot wait to see his little face and fingers and toes. I cannot wait to tell him how much his dad and I love him. But becoming a parent...WOW...there is going to be this little person who will completely depend upon Joe and I. What a responsibility! But one that we feel up to the task.

I went to the doctor today. And despite my anxieties about my weight gain everything seems to be on track. We are still shooting for a due date of May the 12th. The doc says that he probably weighs about 3-1/2 to 4 pounds. Last night Joe and I were watching a movie and Joe had his hand resting on the belly. Baby Davis just kept moving around and kicking at Joe's hand. I love to see Joe's face light up every time that this happens. It makes me smile. Despite the movements of our little one at the most unconvienent of times, whether I am trying to sleep or just trying to drive to and from work, I just keep thinking that in the end it will all be worth it. Being pregnant is a wonderful thing. To know that Heavenly Father has blessed both Joe and I to be parents and to feel life growing within me is such an awesome feeling.

A little funny thing happened at church on Sunday...there was a couple sitting behind us who are going to have their first baby about a week after we are due. She is so tiny! Hard to believe that she is as far along as she is. Anyhow, her husband made a point to tell me that my belly button has popped out! How kind of him! I know that you cannot tell from the picture but it has popped out. It does look kind of funny but I like to think of it as a beauty mark for the duration of the pregnancy. Thanks Baby Davis!

Baby Shower

After looking at this blog post it looks like I put the pictures in all backwards. So maybe you should start from the bottom and work your way up. We were so blessed by the generostiy of everyone that came to the baby shower. Thank you thank you thank you! We are truly blessed to have such wonderful friends and family.
If anyone knows me than they know that I am a huge baseball fan. My dad bought our little man his first Angels t-shirt with a little hat and shorts to match. We grew up watching the Angels. Joe is convinced that our boy is going to be a soccer star but we all know that he is going to be watching tons of baseball with his mommy. =) My aunt and cousins from Ohio also sent a cute little baseball outfit. Sorry Joe...all signs are pointing to baseball.
Here are my Davis sisters...Esther, Andi, and Heather. The only one we were missing was Rebekah.

Here is a pic of my sister-in-law and I....belly to belly. She is due about a week after I am. But you cannot hardly tell considering I am almost double her size! We are both having boys! And there is her son Benjamin in between the two of us.

These balloons were so cute!

Thanks to my mom and sister, Kameron, for throwing the baby shower in Cali. It was fun to see friends and family.

Look At This Face!!!!

K....since my own child isn't here to brag about just yet...I'll brag about my cute niece! This is Little Miss Montana. I mean just look at this cute little face. Can't you just see her personality oozing all over the place? I went home for the weekend due to Mom and my sister throwing me a baby shower (I'll update with pictures later on that).

Montana and I are lucky enough to share a birthday. Last week she turned 4 and I turned the BIG 3-0. Needless to say she was definitely more excited about her birthday than I was about mine. Hard to believe that she is 4 already....she has grown so fast!

Lately, every time I talk to her on the phone she is asking if the baby is still in the belly. So this past weekend was a good opportunity to see that Baby Davis is still in the belly. Montana kept talking to my belly the whole weekend. Love her! Love her! Love her!

Weekend Visitors

We had some friends from Santa Barbara come visit us for the weekend. Mark and Melissa are friends of Joe's from culinary school. If any of you came to our reception they were the ones who perfected the delicious food that you had tasted. They are out and about checking out new cities to decide where they want to live once they leave Santa Barbara. We are crossing our fingers that they choose Salt Lake! While they were here we showed them around downtown and drove up to Park City. Of course I forgot my camera for that part. But we went and toured Brigham Young's house that is downtown. Joe and I had never done that before.

Park City was beautiful. While we were there we found a sled on the side of the road that found it's way into the back of the truck. Mark ended up using it later in the night to do some night sledding at Sugar House Park. It was hilarious! I didn't think that he would get much speed but he was going quite fast.

We hope to see them again real soon!
