3 Years of Bliss

Today is mine and Shane's 3rd wedding anniversary. We were going to go to Wolf Creek in Ogden where we went for our Honeymoon, but our funds didn't agree with us so we have laid low this weekend. It's been very restful and fun to just sleep-in, be together and eat amazing food. I can't believe this will be our last anniversary with just the two of us, but we are both excited for our new little bundle of change coming in February.

Life has never been better. I grow more and more in love with Shane everyday. I never thought I could ever care about someone so much and am so grateful that Heavenly Father gave me the ultimate man to be by my side through everything. Marriage by no means has been easy, but loving each other has. We hardly ever argue and compliment one another so well, life at times feels like clockwork. We have faced our challenges head-on and have always agreed that we need faith in every footstep. I love my husband and can't wait to see him in his new role as a dad. It will be exciting and scary for the both of us and I couldn't do it with anyone but him.

Thanks Shane for the best three years of my life. I know that life will only get better and can't wait to continue our adventure. I love you!

26 Weeks...Holy Cow!

I can't believe I am already 26 weeks along! This has been a crazy adventure but Shane and I are loving every second of it. I've had a few doctor appointments since I last posted. Alice is doing great. She is growing, kicking and moving like crazy and we absolutely adore her. She has had, however, what the doctor and specialist call PAC's (premature atrial contractions) which basically means her heart sometimes skips a beat. We've seen a specialist several times now, but the last time we went we were very enthused-she only had one PAC the whole appointment and the rest of the time her heart sounded great. Then I had an appointment with my regular doctor Tuesday and she had more frequent PAC's. Needless to say, we were both a little discouraged-we want what's best for our little Alice. We went to the temple Tuesday after I got home from the appointment and we both feel at peace about everything. There's a lot of uncertainty in our life right now and all that we can do is put our faith in the Lord. I will have another appointment with my doctor next week to have another listen at Alice's heartbeat to determine where to go for the rest of the pregnancy. My blood pressure has also been a little higher ever since I've been pregnant so that's another thing we are keeping an eye on. We would ask for your continued support and prayers as we are in the 3rd trimester and getting closer to meeting our little Ali-Bug. We love you all and appreciate all that you do for us.
