A lot of things have been happening for us these past few months! (I do not blog on my Ipad because it is ridiculous to blog on there). 
Basically our house is fantastic. We really like it and are settled in. Oliver is looking into remodeling the "bunk room", which we priced out as being not too expensive. Basically we would like to take out all of the built in stuff and make it an empty room.

We're also hoping that there is dry wall behind all of the wood covering the walls. The big idea is to turn this into a play room for the kids that I will be watching at home starting in December.

So that brings on a whole new story...
Yep, we're having a baby. Due November 18th.
Tomorrow we find out if it's a boy or a girl (most likely a girl although Oliver is convinced it's twins all of a sudden; no, I'm not enormous or anything he's just weird).
The plan is for me to stay home with this beautiful little person and watch other children at home. I'm really pumped for this idea. I have my policy book all written and a lot of other forms done and ready to go. I put an ad on craigslist and have gotten a lot of replies (unfortunately most of them are not reading the part about not taking kids until December). But I"m still hopeful that by the time I do stay home I'll have some sort of income from these other friends.

Pregnancy? Hmmmm...yeah it's been really easy. I've been super lucky and am therefore convinced I will have a crabby baby. We'll have to see. No morning sickness at all. I had the stomach flu and it took a while longer to get back to normal but that's all. I'm super hungry and have to go to the bathroom all the time. I did crave pickles a lot but that has died off in the last few weeks. My lower back hurts all the time but I work on my feet 10 hours a day, four days a week. I'm officially halfway done as of today and am so beyond excited to finally know if we're having a boy or a girl. No more debating then :D

I have been feeling baby moving around more in the past few weeks but definitely feel that I have to be paying attention to actually notice the movements. Unfortunately, Oliver has missed the few days so far that he would've been able to feel something.
