Sending You A Little Christmas - From The Angels Above

Roger and I went to our first doctor appt Monday...I cried, so did Roger.

(Sorry about the blurry picture, I couldn't get it to focus on my camera.)

The hightlights:
  • Hearing the heartbeat
  • Realizing that there really is a baby in there!
  • Finding out I was a month farther along than I thought (ya I know!)
  • The hospital I'm delivering at is one light away from our house
  • Lots more that I'm still too excited to actually think of

We feel so blessed to finally be pregnant. This baby has been in the works for a long time. I like to think that our family members in heaven are hanging out with our little one until its time for he/she to make the journey here. That thought alone makes me a little teary.

What a perfect Christmas gift for Roger and I. We feel amazed that we are being given the opportunity to be parents. We are so excited!!!

Baby Gardner is due July 6th!

Christmas is in the Air

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this time of year! The trees, the lights, the snow, the smells - love it all. Roger and I did the usual list of christmas activities this year...

We decorated our tree (gotta have a real one, can't beat that pine smell) in the new house, while drinking sparkling cider and (of course) watching the football game (no idea who was playing). :)

We also visited Temple Square, the Gateway and ate dinner with some of my favorite in-laws at Little America. Roger totally spoils me!
