So this post is more or less just an update post about everything that's been going on... or not going on.

I babysat for a neighbor yesterday. I watched her 10 month old little boy for a few hours. We watched Sesame Street and threw plastic Easter eggs around while he chowed down on Kix. It was pretty fun, and made me even MORE excited to be having a baby than I already am. {I didn't think it was possible to be MORE excited!}

Little Man has been kicking me {or punching, or even head-butting me, I'm not really sure!} like he's Chuck Norris in Lone Wolf McQuade... He likes to hang out low, and push as far away from my spine as possible, so it feels like I've got rocks on my beltline. He reacts to music and sounds, like when I put my iPod on my stomach and play music, or when Shark talks to me while laying on my stomach. By reacts I mean he kicks me.

Shark passed his extremely hard Calculus II class. {By extremely hard, I mean almost everybody in the class was on their 2nd round cuz they failed the first time.} We are so excited to be done with that hard class! Not so excited to move onto another semester of hard classes.

Shark started a new job on Monday! More hours, more pay, great benefits, and in the Electrical Engineering field he wants to go into!! It's working nights, but it works with his school schedule, so it's all good. He'll just need to get into a routine with the hours and stuff. He likes the job so far, even though it's just been training this week. The job is an hour away. I know out here that is such a long commute, but honestly, it doesn't seem that bad to me. We had to drive an hour to get to the closest Wal-Mart when I lived in WI. Everything was an hour away : church, clothes, restaurants. So it's not that big of a deal to me, but everyone we talk to are like : That is sooo far for him to drive. He's ok with it, I'm ok with it.

Next week is the BYU Education Week. Shark and his brothers call it EFY for Moms. I think that's funny, but it's true. I'm way excited to go. {It also means I will be missing for a week!}

My uncle is getting married tomorrow! Our whole family is excited! Yay for weddings, boo for us not being able to go. I'll take pictures of the gift we're sending them and I'll post them!

August is my last month working at the Trading Post. We're not really sure what my heart is planning so we figure it's best if I take a step back from working for the last trimester of cooking. I am going to quit working when I have the Little Man, and this way, I don't quit right in the middle of the all the holiday action. Plus this gives me time to finish decorating the room {again, I'll post pictures when it's done} and get his blanket done and all the little things I've been planning to get done. I also want to get the Christmas presents done before it even gets close cuz I know I won't wanna make anything once I have him. :) I've got it mostly done, I just need to finish up the last few things.

We went camping last weekend up at Whitney Reservoir. It was a very pretty drive, and the lake was in the middle of the mountains. It was gorgeous. It was alot of fun to go camping with Shark's family. We brought our 4" memory foam mattress and it was heavenly!

Everything with my heart has been fine. I haven't had any complications or wig-outs since the one last month. I've got 5 days left on the Lovenox and I just refilled my presciptions of Sotalol. I have a heart check up {my monthly appointment} next week. We have a fetal echocardiogram {where the check out Little Man's heart} at the beginning of next month, as well as a my glucose test and another ultrasound. He sure is an active little guy, and that convinces me we're not going to have a timid, soft-spoken child. We're pretty sure he's going to the opposite of Steve & Feather's daughter. But we're ok with that. :)

Shark and I are back on the library kick. I've been checking out 10 audiobooks at a time and putting them on his iPod so he can listen while he drives to work. We've got most of our series' and now we just need to start clearing the shelves alphabetically. ;)

Love to all who know I'm still around, and that I'm just totally a slacker!! ♥
