Baby bump pictures! (Updated!!)

So I know that these pictures are long overdue, but I have been having some technical difficulties with my computer and we don't have internet at our place for now. I pulled these pictures off of family facebooks and blogs so I'm glad that someone posted them. I will post more pictures as I get them, but these should do for now.

My baby shower: I have such good sister-in-laws and a wonderful mother-in-law. They put the whole thing together. Thank you to all who came. I really appreciated the support.

I don't know why I got stuck in front... my belly is getting soo big. Oh well.

Me and my beautiful sister-in-law Megan. I am 29 weeks in this picture and I think she is 17 weeks. We both look stunning with our baby bumps. :)

Lots of Updates

Its been a little while since I have posted because we have been without internet for a little while. On top of that, my computer has finally given up to ghost so we don't really have any way to post for a bit anyway. Besides that, this week has been pretty busy. We just moved into our bigger apartment last week so I have spent the majority of the week unpacking. We also have had family in town, Emergency Room Visits, My Baby Shower, and babtisms. I finally started my quilt this weekend and I'm super excited to work on it even more. My pregnancy is going well. I am almost in the single digits for my weeks left. I will post more belly shots when we get internet and the computer situation figured out.

It has been so fun to have family in town. This weekend has been the Liston family reunion. We had a great weekend planned until Tony landed himself in the ER with Kidney Stones. No one really knows what causes them, but all he knows is that they are in no way pleasant. He woke me up at 4:30am doubled over in the bathroom. He was in so much pain that he threw up a couple times before we took him in at 5. They did a CT scan and found out that he had a 1.4mm stone. He was on pain and anti nausea medication. He is doing a lot better now. He went in to have an ultrasound on his kidneys today and they showed up clear. We were a little bummed because we missed the trip to San Francisco, but I am glad that he is ok.

Saturday was my baby shower. I had a great time having my friends and family there to celebrate our little man coming later this year. There was good food and I got a lot of really nice things for our little boy. I can't wait until I can put him in all the outfits that people gave me and use all the fun things. Thanks to all that came. You really made it special for me.

Also this weekend, Mitchell had his baptism. The baptism went really well and we had fun celebrating it with him afterwards at Red Robin. We are so excited for him to learn and grow even more in the gospel. He is a great kid and we know he will honor his covenants. Congratulations Mitchell.

Poor Poopers :(

For the past couple years that we have had Roxy (aka poopers) we have been trying to get her fixed. She has gone through 2 heat cycles and I just said, "enough". We got put on a low cost spay list and finally got her in this last Wednesday. The poor girl didn't know what was going on and it was pretty obvious by the look in her eyes when I handed her over to the vet and left. So sad. The surgery went well and we picked her up to take her home. However, she threw up (almost in Tony's face, too) that night, but she has been recovering well. We have had to keep her locked up just to make her rest because she has been feeling loads better.

Hungry, anyone?

Tony and I are on a new food regimen called the zone. It's nice because there is no calorie counting and they give you all the measurements for the most common foods. There is that small annoyance of having to measure everything out, but after a while I will be able to eyeball it and will only need the scale and measuring tools to check myself every so often. I really like it so far. It has seriously opened my eyes to how off my portions were. I always knew that I should eat my veggies, but I always filled up on meats and pastas/potatoes before I got my veggies in. NOT anymore!

The way the "diet" is constructed is you get a certain amount of 'blocks' for each category (proteins/carbs/fats) per meal/snack. You can eat whatever you want, but you will get a larger quantity if you choose healthier choices. Example: For dinner last night we had broccoli, asparagus, chicken, and almonds. We had 2.5 cups of cooked broccoli (2 blocks) 12 spears of asparagus (surprisingly only 1 block) 12 almonds for Tony 9 for me, 3 oz of chicken breasts and Tony had a cup of milk (which is 1 block each of carbs and protein, he gets one more block of each than I do). Needless to say the chicken looked rather measly compared to the veggies. It was a lot of freaking food and I wish I would have gotten a picture of it. I would say that 9/10 of the plate was filled with veggies leaving the other 1/10 for the chicken and almonds. Tony had a hard time finishing it because of the amount, but the program stresses that everything gets eaten to make sure everything is balanced. It may seem a little unusual, but I have really noticed a difference even after 1 day. I don't over stuff myself so the baby doesn't feel like he needs to fight back to regain room (thus making me feel extremely uncomfortable). Plus, it is helping Tony to be a lot more healthy. Ultimately a good thing because I want him to stick around for a while because I love him so much :)
