What a wonderful life!

To catch up:
Tuesday - Bella and I attended MOPS which is always a good time. I have meet some really wonderful people through MOPS both here and back in Jacksonville. It give Bella some time to be with other kids and me some much needed adult interaction.

Wednesday - I took Bella to day care for the first time. I think I was more unsure about all of it then she was. This is not an everyday thing just on occasion as I had Day 1 of L.I.N.K.S Mentor training. Taking this class will allow me to help mentor to other spouses all about the Marine Corps. It was a really good class and on Friday I have a presentation and Bella had a blast.

Thursday - I had our 34 week Doctors appointment. I was sad Marcus was busy but Bella was amazing for me. We counted all the babies in a magazine while we waited. I am currently measuring 35 weeks. My Doctor said I was boring and nothing exciting is happening. I am okay with being boring. We go back in two weeks and then every week after that until Paul makes his grand entrance.

Friday - I had my L.I.N.K.S presentation and Bella went to the day care again. My presentation went splendid. I finished earlier then I thought and Marcus had already picked up Bella and taken her to his office. Nothing is funnier then walking into a room with 3 men who are totally caught up playing with a child. She was having a blast.

Saturday - Valentines' Day - Bella had to have been feeling the love with packages from all grandparents and her gift of love from us. She recieved some really cute things her favorite having to be the lip shaped purse from Nan and Pops and the cowboy boots from Grandee and Gramps. We ate heart shaped sandwiches for lunch and finished the day with heart shaped pancakes for dinner courtesy of Marcus. Once Bella went down Marcus and I had Valentines' Day to ourselves and watched the movie Fireproof. We both agreed it was a really good movie. I also made chocolate covered strawberries as a special treat. What a wonderful day spent with the ones I love.

Sunday - The nesting has begun. I could not do enough laundry or organizing. I am trying to get everything in order before Paul arrives or better yet before my Mom gets here so that I can enjoy the quality time.

That is it. I am still trying to find my camera cord then pictures will follow.

My very first post!

I have wanted to create a blog for some time now and figured that I should start before Baby Paul arrives with the hope that I will continue. This is meant for our family and friends to stay up to date on what is going on in our lives. I am currently 33 almost 34 weeks pregnant and am doing well so far. Baby Paul is set to arrive somewhere around March 27th. We will have to wait and see if that happens. We know we need to wait until at least the 18th of March so that my mom will be here to watch Bella during my hospital stay. We are getting very excited. I have completed most of his bedding set, we went with Cowboy/John Deere as our theme. I will post pictures when it is complete.
Bella is growing up way to quickly. She turned 2 back in December and what a change has occurred. She is testing her boundaries more and exploring. She will actually have her first "day care" experience tomorrow for about 4 hours as I take a class on base to become a LINKS mentor. We will see how it all works out. I think I am more nervous about it than she is.
Marcus is doing well. He started college classes in January. We are all very proud of him. I know that it is hard for him to work all day and then have class until sometimes 10 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The semester will be over the beginning of March and he is looking into his options for next semester. I guess that is it for now but I will post pictures when we can find my camera cord.
