This month is going to be an insanely busy one. I have a shower this Saturday, after which Dave and I are going to a baby expo at the Wells Fargo Center and then going to my step dad's birthday dinner. Not to mention I am teaching the Young Women's lesson on Sunday.
The following Saturday I have another shower. The Saturday after that I have another shower and the following Sunday I have a shower. I am super excited about all of these showers, but I am just hoping I start to feel better so I can enjoy them without a massive tummy ache.
The baby is doing good and has been getting the hiccups on a regular basis which is cute. He's been recognizing his daddy's voice and likes to kick him in the head (out of excitement of course) when he gets really close to talk to him. He also likes the song King of the road. He was completely still until that song came on the radio while we were driving to work and then he started going nuts! Like he was dancing (he dances crazy like his daddy!) I think he just likes the low voice in the song because he thinks it is Dave.
That's pretty much what's going on. We will hopefully be blogging more this month as we will be doing more interesting things. Sorry we had such a big lapse in blogs but thanks to our readers for continuing to be faithful readers through the dry spell.

For Valentine's day, I tried to be a little more creative with Brook's present. Since becoming pregnant (and even before that), Brook loves juice. So, instead of a bouquet of flowers, I got her a "bouquet" of different juices and a Jamba Juice gift card. I "wrapped" the gift in a huge Victoria's Secret bag with scantily clad women on it to confuse her before she opened it. She appreciated the thought and I am glad I didn't have to spend $50 on a dozen roses.

In other news: I've committed not to commit to anything until after the baby is born. I have been very stressed out and still volunteering to do things that somehow I think I have time for. So, from now on until Carter arrives (and probably for a little while after that) I will be attempting to take it easy and not doing anything that I don't need or really want to do. Hopefully this makes things easier and slightly less stressful for me, Carter and Dave. I need to continue to relieve stress which is difficult for me since I am a compulsive planner and I really have no idea when this baby is going to come. I just need to make sure that I'm ok with whatever happens.

Today, Brook and I went to San Francisco with the young women from our church to see the Marie Antoinette exhibit at the Legion of Honor Museum. They had on display paintings, furniture, drawings and such from the queen's chateau. After seeing the exhibit, we took a couple of the girls to see paintings by Monet, Picasso, Cezanne, Saurat and Van Gogh. They had never seen paintings by these masters in real life, so it was cool to see their excitement. Here is the group outside the museum:

Besides going to birth class last night we started Carter's scrapbook. I found a website where you can create scrapbook pages online and have them shipped to you. It's great because I hate dragging all of my stuff out and spending a bunch of money to get stuff to make like one page. Hopefully we like the finished product!

On Saturday I had an oppertunity to get free maternity pictures taken! It was really fun! Here is a link to the online gallery: http://www.flickr.com/gp/8679477@N04/h0kMcQ
After that we tried to get a bit of grocery shopping in, but because of my celiac we have to go to like 8 different stores so we were only able to hit 2 of them before I had to be at the beehive conference. It was fun and the girls seemed to enjoy it so that was good.
Saturday night we went over to our friends the Skabelunds house. Our other friends Katie and Jeremy were there (Katie is about 2 weeks further along than me) and we had SUCH a good dinner! Susanne must have taken in to account that 2 preggos were coming over because there was so much food.
Sunday after church we drove out to Sacramento to spend the day with John, Noelle and Abby. We had a lot of fun AND Noelle helped me find the perfect blessing outfit for Carter! I had been searching online for months and she found it in about 2 minutes. What would I do without her!
This morning I was not feeling well so I slept in and Dave is going to take me to work on his lunch (since we now only have one car.) We are feeding 5 missionaries tonight and we still have to do the rest of our shopping after work so wish us luck!!!
