“Sometimes …you wear stretchy pants. Iz for fun!”

So I’m imagining that this most likely will be the last time (at least for the next several months) that I will be able to squeeze into these jeans long enough to take a picture. I am rapidly growing and am still fully convinced that the baby is developing somewhere within my thighs, because that is, what seems to be, where the most of my expansion is coming from! (Which, in case you were wondering how I felt about the matter, I don’t really approve.)

Hope you all look forward to every future picture of me in sweats! (Which is the only thing on this PLANET that I can almost squeeze into.)

Today is not only my 5 month anniversary, but I am also 5 months along! :) How happy!
(..In case you were wondering, no, that doesn't mean soybean is a honeymoon baby, I'm technically 4 months, but they backdate and count the previous month.. it's confusing I know, but anyway, that's just what they do..)

Food, glorious food!

Saturday was one of the happiest mornings I have ever experienced during a Rexburg winter! Not only did we sleep in and have an AMAZING breakfast... 

( Behold, Amazing Breakfast: )

But the sun came out!!!!

That is a true novelty here.
It was almost like being back in California...
Except still freezing.

My mom and I were talking today and I realized that everyone in my immediate family is graduating in some way this year!

Kim's graduating from BYU! =D
Jason just graduated in age :)
Matthew is graduating from Jr High to High school! =O
William, from his mission. :D
Mom is graduating to age 50 and a to be a first-time grandma :}
Jordan, from school and to be a new dad :]
(and me, as a new mom, of course)
and when I had asked my dad what he was graduating in, his response was:
"I'm graduating to be another year closer to being senile."

oh dad :)


I haven't really craved much of anything since the pregnancy, the only things I have craved have been cookies, milk, and TACO BELL!

Just in case anyone was having doubts, it is officially Jordan's child. haha

♥♥ Happiest Penguin Ever ♥♥

Many people from my younger years know of my childhood obsession with penguins. For those of you reading that don't, let's just put it this way, if I had to live in Antarctica if it meant I could have adopted one, or better yet, if I had the option of becoming one, I'm sure I would have.
(However, knowing now what it's like to live in the snow, I probably would have grown to very rapidly regret either decision!)
Well the cute little guys will forever hold a special place in my heart and today, when I ran across this video featured on MSN, I couldn't resist sharing the happiness :)

Dad would be so proud!! :)

My dad takes pictures of our family every Christmas morning, which I always dread because I look... well, like I just rolled out of bed... and that, most times in my opinion, can be a terrifying sight. Here's where the wonder comes in, this year was my first Christmas away from home and I had EVERY possibility of having a camera-free morning. However, amazingly enough, IIIIII was the one that morning who made the suggestion to pull out the camera!! This Christmas morning was spent with ME being the "Dad" this time!
I don't know what came over me, perhaps it just doesn't feel like Christmas to me without it anymore, but whatever the reason was that provoked such an absurd behavior, I know my Poppa would be so proud. :) 

My ornament "mobile" that I hung over our bed
Traditional breakfast :)
Our front room decorations
Jordan and I kissing in front of our "Christmas Tree"!!

 I hope everyone had a wonderful, very-merry, Christmas and are enjoying the new year!! =D
