end of summer thoughts

A lot has been happening in my life lately and with summer semester finals finished, I finally have some time to share! After finding out I was pregnant near the end of winter semester, I decided to do spring and summer semesters so that I could graduate before the baby comes. I knew it wouldn't be easy going to school straight from fall semester of 2011 through December of this year, but I really wanted to graduate before becoming a full-time mom. Now that I am finished with one of the most challenging summers of my life (morning sickness and early morning classes aren't the best combo), I am finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Only a few more months until I am done with school! I can't think of a better graduation gift than a little baby boy :)

I am so incredibly grateful for all the help I've received the last few months. I have such a testimony of the power of prayer. It's amazing to see how loving Heavenly Father is and how willing He is to help us through anything we're going through. I have felt His hand in my life more in the last few months than ever before in my life.

Summer classes haven't stopped me from being completely baby crazy. I absolutely LOVE looking at baby stuff, thinking of baby names, and thinking about what our little boy will look like (I'm hoping he'll look just like Devin). I still can't believe there's a little person in my stomach. I still get so excited every time I feel him move around. I can't wait to meet him!
