You might not know that my husband is actually a very creative writer among other things he also loves sports in particular Utah sports. I have created a blog for him to write whatever he wants (not that he couldn't on this, blog however he refuses). So honey here you go it is yours and I expect to see something tonight!!!
Today we are officially 6 months along! Looking back 5 months it seemed like we would never be this far a long yet here we are. It is crazy to think that in about 3 1/2 months we will be parents, but we are so excited. Our little baby is getting really active. He loves to kick and moved around especially when Ryan is talking and has his hand on my belly (he loves his daddy so much). Just in case you were wondering we still don't have a name for him so if you have any suggestions I am open. My morning sickness has started to get better. I just try and take it one day at a time. There however is one new development... Since this is my first pregnancy I haven't really known what to expect or what is normal so when I started to wake up in the mornings and be in pain I just thought that was part of being pregnant along with having to go pee a lot. Well apparently that isn't the case yesterday I found out that I have a urinary tract infection and that is why I have been in pain. It was actually a relief to me to know that this isn't normal. I look forward to feeling better in a few days.
Update on the baby: according to babycenter.com our baby is just over a pound now and about a foot long. Up top is a picture of what he looks like.
As hard as it has been to be so sick I am so thankful for the opportunity to be pregnant to have a baby grow inside me. I love feeling him kick and move around. I am so excited for the day that I actually get to hold him in my arms, but I am more excited to be able to see Ryan hold his son for the first time. We have truly been blessed our baby so far and look forward to so many new experiences.

I have been wanting to go to the zoo all summer and finally we went last Friday! I took the whole day off and I got my massage and then pick Ryan up. We got a little lunch and headed for the zoo. One recommendation to anyone out there...I would not recommend getting a massage and then going to the zoo on a day that is expected to reach 99 degrees. I was exhausted by the end of the day. But it was so much fun!!!
For our anniversary this year (May 13th) Ryan bought me a gift certificate to a spa. Well since I have been so sick I hadn't wanted to use it. Well I took last Friday off of work and went to get my massage. It was called the pregnancy massage!!! Really it was a normal massage, but they has special pillows for my tummy. I was sooooooo nice! Here is my after picture. I look a little tired because I really wanted to take a nap after because I was so relaxed. It was so sweet of Ryan to know that I would just love that!!!
