Tiny thumper

Yesterday, Ben and I went to look at buying a different car. We had to stop by the bank first and talk about money. While we were sitting there, I guess the baby was excited about the idea of a different car too...I felt it moving around in there. I had wondered on Sunday if that was what was going on in there, but now I now for sure! I was pretty amazed, and happy that he/she is having a good time in there moving around. Ben said he felt sorry for "her" (he thinks its a girl) because she must get bored in a small area with nothing to do. Well, that's about all. Oh, and we were very happy with the car, so hopefully within the next couple days it will be with us!

Our growing valentine

Well, life is going good for us. I had the second Dr. appt today and everything is going as it should inside. The lil' baby is growing and that is becoming more obvious to me at least on the outside too. Hearing the heartbeat is always so amazing. I told the nurse today when she put the monitor on...I hear this everyday at work on other women, but when its my own baby it just is so exciting! You just can't help but smile :) 

Ben is back in his full schedule with classes at WSU and working at the elementary school mornings a week. Overall he enjoys his classes and work. This week he helped with parent teacher conferences in the evening, translating for the spanish speaking parents. Most Tuesday evenings he plays basketball at our church, which he enjoys, and its a way to meet more people there. 
Work for me is staying quite busy with the full time schedule. It is going good...always more babies to be born. I had a Margaret born yesterday, made me think of my Aunt Margie (Margaret)...it wasn't a name that I've heard used often lately :) And at least one Sunday a month I help in the nursery at church with the crawlers. Its a good way to meet more people, and help out too.  

My husband is now whining at me to go shave his neck...so I must do that before going to bed :)
