Happy Mother's Day

So I know that I don't technically have a child yet but I am pregnant so Stephen figured that this is my first Mother's Day. It was such an amazing day. For breakfast Stephen made one of my favorite things, Roll-up Pancakes. I'm not sure that this is the official name for them but we called them when I was kid. They're kind of like crepes but more fluffy. Needless to day, THEY WERE AMAZING!!
This is what I came out to...after Stephen removed the "cloches" *the metal things, at least that's what Stephen called them :)* they looked like this...SO YUMMY!!
Because we are starving students I didn't want any presents but Stephen was amazing and found a little extra money to buy me a citrus zester, something that I've wanted desperately for a long time!
We had an amazing day at church and a great afternoon just hanging out and enjoying eachother's company, something we don't get to do that often anymore. For dinner Stephen made some steak, risotto and roasted asparagus. It was SO yummy!
Thank you, Stephen for making my first mother's day incredible!

Playing Catchup

I know it's been a few weeks but they've been a crazy few weeks. First my mom was in town for Ammon, my brother, and Brooke's, my sister, graduation.
While my mom was here I had a doctor's appointment and she came with me and I was able to have an ultrasound because they couldn't find the heartbeat with the heartbeat thingy, that's the offical name for it. It was really cool to have my mom there with me so she could see little Tiddlywinks first hand. It was also fun to see an actual baby when I looked at the ultrasound.
P.S. the reason the doctor couldn't find the heartbeat was because I apparently have this super placenta blocking the heartbeat thingy, which is a good thing I'm told.

Then Stephen's brother, David and sister, Christina, were in town for Stephen's other sister, Wendy's graduation. We spent a fun weekend with them playing Super Mario Bros Wii and a Harry Potter trivia game.

And then I started school yesterday. I'm going to try again after having to drop my classes last semester because of the noncooperation of Tiddlywinks but mostly my body. So keep your fingers crossed that I can make it through the semester this time because I'm getting kind of tired of taking the same classes over and over again in hopes that one day I'll actually be able to finish them :).

As for Stephen, well, he's working hard at work and preparing for the LSAT next month. He's getting SO excited to meet Tiddlywinks and so am I.

And the last and, in my opinion, the most exciting news is that we have a date for the "gender" ultrasound. JUNE 9th is the day!! YAY! I'll let you know when we find out. Any ideas what Tiddlywinks is going to be?
