A Quick Update

Things are going very well with me and the baby. He's growing just the way he should and I'm feeling great! I'm at 32 weeks so we've got about 8 weeks left until the little guy is here and we are getting so excited. We can't wait until we get to finally meet him. He moves like crazy all the time and gets the hiccups at least 4 times a day. Tyson and I are having a hard time thinking of a name that we like. Hopefully we think of something before the little guy gets here.

I haven't posted a picture of my baby bump since I was 15 weeks so here I am at 32 weeks. You have to know that Tyson is home right now while I'm posting so I took this picture by myself, sorry it's a little blurry.
Tyson is doing good as well. He'll graduate from BYU-I at the end of this semester and then we are off to dental school at the end of the summer. Tyson was lucky and had four interviews. He interviewed at Nebraska State Dental School, Indiana University of Purdue University Dental School, Marquette University and Creighton University through the IDEP program. At first Tyson was placed on all four waiting lists, this was a little hard to deal with but it pay off in the long run. The beginning of January Tyson got a letter of acceptance from Indiana. We were so excited to get into dental school and to know that we were able to take the next step in our lives. The beginning of February brought us a surprise when Tyson was offered an interview at Oregon Health & Science University. Of course Tyson said yes and drove up for the interview. Before Tyson even got home he had an acceptance email waiting for him.

Now we are lucky to have the chance to choose between a couple schools and decide which school feels best for us. Both schools are great and Tyson would get an amazing education at either school. We haven't made up our minds for sure but we are leaning towards Oregon. Things feel better about Oregon and plus it's only 11 hours away instead of the 26 hour drive to Indiana. We still have a few months until we have to know for sure so we are just taking our time with this decision. It's a life changing decision that we are so excited to make.

I also finally posted Christmas and birthdays if you have any desire to see that far in the past.

Hey girl- That sweet baby is almost here, how exciting!! You are super cute all pregnant :), I really enjoyed pregnancy until the last couple weeks, then I was officially MISERABLE haha, but hearing you talk about the hiccups and all, it made me miss it, that was the best just always feeling your little baby. So excited that you guys are set and accepted for dental school, i can't imagine the great relief that brings, that's awesome. Take care! sorry for the long post!
