Father's Day 2009

This Father's Day, Jonathan and I thought we would be settled into our new home. Well, we were wrong :) We're close, but not there yet! We had already scheduled a Father's Day cookout at the new house and we were going to go ahead with it, we would just have to improvise a bit! It ended up being a beautiful day, so we were able to pull the tables out on the back porch. It was PERFECT!! We had a menu including, pork ribs, hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, watermelon, corn on the cob, baked beans, and Jamie's Bakery cake and icream for dessert!

This was also originally the day that jonathan and I were going to announce to our families that we were pregnant. We ended up telling them 3 weeks ago. I had already ordered a cake from Jamies with "Baby Wetherington January 1, 2010" written on it. I was going to cancel the order after we told the families, but my mom called behind me and kept the order in. So we had the cake yesterday.

We had a great Father's Day with family. i appreciate my dad so much, and am thankful for all of the sacrifices that he has made for our family. I thank him for being at every softball game and also encouraging me to be my best!

House Update: We have been delayed a bit on the house.....again! We had planned on having a Father's Day cook out at our new house. We were hoping to be moved in or at least in the process of moving in by this weekend. The carpet was supposed to be installed this past Monday, however the carpet took longer to come in than they expected. Therefore, it is not getting installed until next Monday! So, we are still having a cookout, but there will not be any carpet. The kitchen is done, the wood floors are done,, the front and back porch are done, everything else is done except for the carpet. We are getting close!! :) Right now we are hoping to slowly move things in next week and next weekend. I am hoping to get a head start on the kitchen this weekend, so it won't be so overwhelming next weekend. The good thing is we are not on any kind of time schedule, so we can take as much time as we need moving in the new house, and out of the old!

Jonathan update: Jonathan has been BUSY with work and with our house. He cannot wait to have Clearfield finished, so he doesn't have to worry about it anymore! His job is over once we move in...mine just begins!! I'm extremely thankful for him and how hard he works to support our family. I am blessed!! He is also busy with softball. He plays on Thursday and Saturday nights. His teams seem to have finally gelled and they are winning now which makes it much more fun!!

Baby Wetherington update: I had a doctors appointment this morning. Today, i am 12 weeks. one more week and I am out of the first trimester! Yay! i got to hear the baby's heartbeat this morning and it was strong and in the 150's, which is right on target! Again, we feel so thankful and so blessed! i had a dream this week that we were having a girl. Time will tell! We have scheduled a 3-D ultrasound on july 29th. I will be 18 weeks, and we are hoping the baby will give us a peek so we can start decorating the nursery!!

Missy Update: This morning at the doctors appointment, I got quite a shock when I got on the scale! I was already up 9lbs! obviously, that is unacceptable! I am chalking it up to the fact that I was in marathon running shape and basically came to an abrupt halt with running when I found out I was pregnant. I was terrified about my heart rate becoming too high. The midwife this morning assured me that I was free to run to my hearts content! She said to just listen to my body. She also told me I was free to continue my Body Pump weight lifting classes as well. This THRILLED me and I think I will start feeling much better when i can get back into a regular running/working out schedule!! Also....the chicken wings that I have been craving are a thing of the past!! NO MORE! I'm sure they contributed to the 9lbs as well :)
I have been feeling great...just tired! I am hoping to start getting my energy back in the next couple of weeks. My cravings have been ketchup, mexican, and chicken wings....obviously nothing healthy.

Oh Baby!

Most of you have heard by now, but in case you haven't......Jonathan and I are expecting our first baby on January 1, 2010!  We are very excited and feel blessed that it happened so quickly!
We found out that we were pregnant on April 19th, 2009.  We decided that it would be in our best interest if we kept the pregnancy a secret.  We didn't want to tell a bunch of people and then have something terrible happen.  
My first appointment was on May 1.  At that point I was only 5 weeks along, so nothing showed up yet on the ultrasound.  We both went back two weeks later and were able to see our baby and the little heart beating away at 136bpm!  Words cannot express what a relief it was to see that on the screen!  
We were trying to think of the perfect time to tell our families.  We decided that Father's Day would be perfect!  We would be in our new house at that point and we would host a cookout for both families to celebrate Fathers Day.  We were going to put that we were expecting on a cake.  
Well, both my mother and mother in law made some comments recently that had us thinking that they "knew" we were pregnant.  We decided that there was no point in waiting another 3 weeks, if they were just going to be expecting the news.  So that weekend, I went to Hallmark and bought some photo frames, plaques, grandma countdowns, and cards.  We decided to plant photo frames with the sonograph as well as the grandma countdown calendars in the houses for the grandparents to find.  They were both SHOCKED and extremely excited!!  It was so exciting to finally be able to share the news with everyone!

As far as me, this pregnancy has been easy so far (knock on wood).  My sickest times come at night time.  I have been getting tired really easily and am in bed for the night around 8:30 or so.  I can already see my energy level picking up though.  Only 3 more weeks and we will be out of the first trimester!  It has gone by incredibly fast!  Hopefully the next 30 weeks will go by just as fast! :)
