Just an update

SO much has happened since I last posted.

1 We moved to Modesto. Everything worked out amazingly! We got all of our stuff(minus the microwave) up there. And I stayed for a week. I love it up there already! We had some great helpers. So many of our friends made the drive to help us unpack. Which was greatly appreciated. We even had friends who stayed for 2 nights to help get everything put away. Which was great since I wasn't really allowed to do much.

2 I went to the hospital because I was having contractions. Thankfully they were able to stop them. I am dilated. So I was put on bed rest for a week. Told to drink lost of water and just relax. Which was kind of impossible because this was about 5 days before the move. I am still not suppose to be doing much, mainly just relaxing and letting this baby cook.

3 I am now down in Fresno again living with my parents. The arrangement is that Ben is in Modesto during the week. And that he is driving down on the weekends to be with me. This is the first week of the arrangement and I already hate it! Lets face it..I can no longer reach or even see my toes. It is now harder to put on pants. And I feel like I am smuggling a watermelon. All of these feelings make it hard to be away from the one person who can make all of these things seem so small.

Well I believe that is all that is new with us. Baby Boy is getting bigger by the day. He has started to do this thing where he will push his foot against my side and there is a nice big bulge. I just love all his little movements. I am very excited that in a few weeks I will get to watch him move around in my arms!!

SO we are moving to Modesto.....Saturday!

Which wouldn't be so scary if we had a couple weeks notice. Try about a week. I am not complaining because my husband is doing what he needs to do and I completely support him. 100%! NO ifs ands or buts about it!

So for those of who don't there is a Home Instead in Modesto that Ben's parents own. And Wednesday they were given news that one of their employees would be going a different way. Which meant that we needed to be up there sooner then later. Now I could have thrown a huge fit and said forget it. But in all of that where would the support for my Husband who has been kind enough to work so I can stay home with our baby. There is no need for tantrums..we are moving sooner then we thought. Which means that Ben will be in Modesto and I will be in Fresno. Living with my parents. I love my parents but that is gonna be hard for me since I have been living on my own for almost 2 years. But I will be heading up to Modesto after Hunter comes.

FUN! But really everything has worked out perfectly so I know this is what we need to do. We found an apartment in 1 day and the next day we had the holding deposit and application in. Its a great place with tons of the things we have wanted. Well things I have wanted like and open kitchen so if Hunter is in the living room I can see him. And 2 bathrooms! I am very excited about that. Plus all the apartments come with a stackable washer and dryer at no extra cost. So thats exciting.

All in all its been a busy week and its gonna stay busy till next Sunday!
