moved in and growing

We are officially moved in and loving it. It's only been a week so we'll see how long that lasts. :) Just kidding! We are so grateful to have this opportunity to save money and spend time with family. My brother was awesome and gave up his own room for us to take over the next four months. 

Chris and I have been looking for a car for several weeks and have not found one we love. It's hard when your budget is $4000.. it is possible though. Yesterday Chris and I found a car and we actually really like it. So we bought it!! Our first car! Thanks to mom and dad. 
It isn't the sexiest thing ever but man was it a god deal. It's a 2000 Ford Taurus. Beautifully clean inside, it must have been garaged for several years. The dealer had a couple knobs to fix and then it is officially ours on Tuesday. 

Our biggest thing was to make sure Chris fit comfortably and that there was enough room for all of the baby things we will have shortly.  Both a check! We are very happy to have a car, it's amazing how different life is with one. 

And I am 25 weeks (6 months) tomorrow. This belly is slowly growing and I am just starting to feel my skin stretch and get super itchy. No visible stretch marks yet but I'm sure they will come. My appetite has grown also, which I am absolutely loving!! Thor likes to kick me when I poke or rub him. A little game of tag I guess.. 
I will make sure the next picture is much better.. and I am standing up straight I promise. :) 
That's about all that's been happening around here.Thanks for reading! 


  1. I put lotion on my belly 3 or 4 times a day. It helped it not get so itchy. I also didn't get stretch marks... don't know if the lotion helped or not. But it's worth a try :)

  2. Woohoo! Congratulations on the car!

  3. Yay for having wheels! That's exciting! And your belly is adorable! :) We miss you guys- glad you're having fun down there. You're name finally showed up on the roll in RS last Sunday! Thought you'd be glad to know... And, congrats on the car!
