Valentines Day

For Valentines Day, I woke up Sunday morning and made a yummy breakfast for Cliff and me. Since we were up so early and it was such a nice day and we didn't have church till 1 we decided to go on a walk down by Provo River. It was a lot of fun! :)

Aren't we so cute!

My pregnant belly (my normal clothes are getting a little too tight now!)

We saw duckies on our walk. Next time we go we will have to bring bread to feed them!

It was a really fun morning and we have decided that we might have to make Sunday morning walks a tradition.

Birthday Time!

This Monday was my 21st birthday! Woo! And since I'm mormon and pregnant I got totally wasted to celebrate! Haha, not! Never the less, it was still a fun day!

My parents had sent me a package that arrived on Saturday and they had given me earrings and a necklace so I made sure to wear them on my actual birthday. Also in the package was super cute baby clothes from my sister-in-law (thank you Liz, I can't wait till the baby comes so I can dress him up!). On monday, my sister had fresh cinnamon rolls from a local bakery delivered to me during the day and they were a yummy surprise! Cliff had to work in the morning, so while he was at work he sent me 21 text messages that each had a reason why he loved me! :) They were very sweet :)

When Cliff got home, we went to the Macaroni Grill for dinner which was delicious except we got full really fast so we had leftovers (for those of you that know Cliff, this does not happen very often!). Our waitor asked if we were celebrating anything and we said my birthday so at the end the waitor brought out a huge piece of cholately chocolate cake and sang happy birthday in Italian. It was pretty good cake except we were so full we could only take a few bites!

Later that night, some friends came over for more cake and played games. Luckily, this time we could enjoy the cake because we weren't so full! It was a lot of fun but sadly enough we didn't take any pictures...Neither Cliff and I are very good at remembering to take pictures. We'll have to be better once the baby comes!

I just wanted to say thanks for all the birthday love from everyone! It was a really fun day!

Something new

So since I haven't posted anything new in a long time, I figured a new post was in order. The most exciting thing that has happened since last post was that we found out we are having a boy! Here are some pictures from the ultrasound!

We will most likely be naming the baby Calvin James Hale. He has been moving tons now which has been really fun to feel. And now sometimes you can even see him kick from the outside. Clifford has felt him move and I swear the baby loves the sound of Clifford's voice. Whenever he talks, the baby starts moving like crazy! I notice it the most when Cliff is reading outloud. We've been reading the Harry Potter books together and just finished the seventh a couple of weeks ago. Cliff has never read the books before and it was fun to read them again!
Back to pregnancy talk though, I've just been getting bigger and bigger now and I defintely have a baby belly now! My pants still button but when I sit down it's a little too tight :P Here are pictures of my belly as it's been growing!

18 Weeks

21 Weeks (I could still fit into my wedding dress, hehe)

23 Weeks

25 Weeks

I'm now 26 weeks and every day I'm just getting bigger. But it's fun! (I have to remind myself it's the baby that's making me get bigger, and I'm not just gaining unneccessary weight, hehe)

In other news, school has been going really well. Cliff and I have really similar schedules so we get to see a lot of each other which is awesome!! Cliff has been substitute teaching and really really likes it and I'm in the process of trying to find an internship. I think I have something lined up but I still need to confirm it all. But that's what's been going on with us!
