Terica and I had planned on sleeping in yesterday since we usually go to church at 9:00 and yesterday was General conference. We were going to sleep in until about 10:00, then get up and watch it. Our plans were changed when Tanya called us at 6:30 to tell us that Afton was fixing to have her baby. We hurried and got ready and rushed in to the Hospital. We arrived at 7:15 and waited in the waiting room until 8:22, when Emma was born. I now have a new respect for Afton, she really is a trooper. I'm excited to watch that beautiful baby girl grow. She is a wonderful addition to the family. And her grandmother is crazy about her already, just read her blog and you will agree. But how can you not be excited to see the hand of God at work, It's times like yesterday when you witness a precious spirit entering our world that you wonder how anyone can deny the existence of a Father in Heaven.
Terica and I are new to the blogging world but after reading Jason and Kim's we decided we needed to keep everyone posted. We had our first ultrasound today and found out that we are having a baby boy!!! Terica wanted a girl but she was still excited, and I was even more excited since I have wanted a boy all along. Hopefully we will get the ultrasound pictures up soon.
Today was such an awesome day. I got up to get ready for work and as i was in the process of getting up i saw i had a message to call my mom and so i did. when i had talked to her she had mentioned to me that schools were cancelled for the day. That made me so happy because when there is a snow day i don't have to go to wor. Travis stayed home today. It was nice other than the fact that he has been sick all day. Connor and i just relaxed and watched t.v all day. i was really nice to have a peaceful day. It was really nice to look out the window and see the neighbors making a snowman. i wish i could have done the same thing, but i had no one to do it with. I could have taking Connor out but the only thing he can do by himself is roll over or sit for a few seconds by him self and then face plant into the ground. Its ok tomorrow is another day.
Terica and I met in 8th grade when we were 14 years old. We got to know each other better in 9th grade because I sat behind her in math class and borrowed a pencil from her every day. She was always disgusted when I returned them full of bite marks. After spending more time together I decided that we needed to be more than friends. Terica didn’t think so. She reluctantly agreed to go to our 10th grade homecoming dance with me, our first date. The harder Terica pushed against me, the harder I tried to get closer. Finally the summer after 10th grade Terica gave in. We dated for 3 months when she decided that I wasn’t the guy for her. After 2 months apart we decided that we missed each other and got back together. We dated for 3 years before getting married in September of 2008. After being married for only a couple of short months we found out that we would be having an addition to our young family. We will be having a baby boy at the end of July. We love being married and are very fortunate to come from strong families. Family is very important to us and we enjoy spending lots of time with them. We are excited to see what the future holds and look forward to facing life together.
