Happy to be a Mom!

I love this thought from President David O. McKay

"She, who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions -- deserves the admiration and the plaudits of man. But she who rears a family of beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, long after paintings have faded, and books have been destroyed she deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God. In her high duty and service to humanity, she is co-partner with the Creator himself."

27 Weeks Pregnant! Due June 6th!

Our little baby is growing great, he is about 2lbs and the size of a cauliflower (according to my weekly email).

He is moving around (especially at night) and enjoys kicking and having the hiccups. It seems like if I am sitting for a period of time and then get up quickly and start moving quickly our little boy thinks he is going on a ride and starts bracing himself right up against my lower tummy- putting so much pressure on me that i have to slow down for a minute until he gets adjusted then I can start moving again. What a kid! He has a personality already!

He also seems to have some of his father in him because he will frequently "twitch" and shake my tummy throughout the day. Love you Devin! For those of you who don't know Devin twitches when he falls asleep, (about 3 or 4 good twitches and then he's out, everynight) I think Grandpa Wagstaff does it also!
Devin and Naomi- 27 Weeks, Starting the 3rd Trimester. Here we go! I'm feeling great, although I definitly am feeling more and more pregnant, and don't feel as agile or graceful as I used to. I went through a 3 or 4 week period of not sleeping very well, but have been doing much better since I got a handful of pillows to add to my husband that I use to get comfortable. Love you honey!

Presidents Weekend-

For President's Weekend, Devin and I went up to my parent's house in Twin Falls. Devin had a huge paper due on Tuesday so he spent the days writing in the back bedroom, but made it out for a few of the festivities including the Stake Valentine's Dance we went to with my Parents.
Go Devin, your 1/2 way done with the semester!
My family loves to watch movies, so Monday while the girls worked on sewing projects (my baby quilt) we all watched the Back to the Future Trilogy! Yea Marty! Way fun.

So I know you've all been dying to see my cute Tummy so here it is! 24 Weeks. So cute, especially my Christams Jammies!

Valentine's Day

For Valentine's Day, Devin and I both had the same idea for each other. The night before Devin stopped by my office (10pm at night- which he could do because the library is open till 11pm) and decorated my desk. I LOVE IT! What a fun surprise I left it decorated all week! Here are the pictures of my desk. Valentin'es morning I also decorated Devin's office, however I forgot to take pictures, but it was about this cute.

I love Yogurt Raisins, and Reese's Pieces (my altime favorite, better than M&M's although the Peanut M&M's come in close!My nickname since I was a little girl has been Sunshine, so Devin sings this song to me. Cute Huh?I Love Roses!
As you know if you have been in Utah this winter it has been Freezing! So here i am all bundled up ready to face the 7 degree weather we've had this week. Can't wait for Spring!
