Spring has (hopefully) sprung!

It seems like spring has finally sprung in Montana. The weather this week has been absolutely beautiful and there is no snow in the forecast (at least for the next 10 days). Hopefully this sticks around. Everyone seems so much happier when the weather doesn’t suck, myself included. It’s been nice to be able to spend time outside and walk without feeling miserable because it’s snowing and the wind is blowing! Brian’s been doing a lot of work on our yard, and it’s starting to look pretty good. Too bad we’ll only be here for one more year…oh wait, thank God we’ll only be here for one more year.

We had our third baby appointment this week, and the baby is still healthy! The heartbeat was 156 bpm (again…baby is consistent), and our cystic fibrosis test was negative. We have our big gender ultrasound on 5/4 and we’re looking forward to being able to refer to baby as “he” or “she”…or even by name! We have some name ideas, and I’m pretty sure we’re set on our boy name. Our girl name may take a little more discussion, though.

Every time I hear the baby’s heartbeat, I feel really amazed that it’s still kicking in there. This probably sounds weird, but with everything that could go wrong with any pregnancy, it’s sort of a miracle when everything is healthy.

We have a busy rest of April coming up. We’ll definitely miss being home with family this weekend on Easter, but we’re having a potluck with our military family here in Montana. Next weekend I leave for Southern California for a week, so that will definitely make the rest of April fly by! Brian has a busy alert schedule this month and will move over the OSS in May (woohoo, finally).
