So... anyways... I went in to see my doctor this morning and he said that since I am having contractions and my cervix is favorable, we could schedule an induction. THANK YOU LORD! And that is a sincere thank you! I am ready (as much as a first time mom can be) for this baby! So no matter what... the baby will be here on FRIDAY! F-R-I-D-A-Y! Now all the sudden I am scared and excited, but definitely anxious. I have so many emotions now that I know a for sure day the baby will arrive. I hope that somehow I go naturally before then... Pitocin (medicine to help dilate) brings on strong and never ending contractions. So the whole natural route will be detoured from and drugs WILL be involved. I will still try to go without an epidural but I am no super woman and I also want a relaxing and calm environment for my labor. I can't believe I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I will NOT miss being pregnant and WILL enjoy my new adventure of being a mommy. WISH ME LUCK!
5am. Friday. :)

On the same day, I had ANOTHER baby shower from my in-laws. I feel really blessed for everything that was given to us. I honestly hardly had to buy anything myself! We have tons of diapers which will probably last us at least 2 months (on the average that the baby needs a change 10-12x a day) and tons of wipes! I really couldn't believe how generous everyone was. It was wonderful.
Of course, Christmas happened at some point in December. The 25th, maybe? lol Well, we were spoiled! Matt bought me a Sephora Blockbuster makeup kit that has over 100 eyeshadows, 80 lipglosses, 8 liquid eyeliners, 3 regular eyeliners, 3 lipliners, brushes, and mascara. IN LOVE! I also got Michael Kor's Very Hollywood perfume. If you haven't had the opportunity to smell that... get on it! His parents got us a new vacuum :) and then my parents got us a new vacuum. lol So we took my parents vacuum back and got some movies, a bookcase, and some XBOX games that we could play together. I bought Matt clothes, clothes, more clothes, shoes, and clothes. That's all he wanted! Which is understandable because he definitely needed a new wardrobe (love ya honey!). But beside all the "stuff" we got, the best present was honestly being able to be together. He live so far away and during our first year of marriage I feel like we have been away more then together. I loved being with him for the holidays. MANY MORE TO COME! New Years was uneventful. We were going to go to the dance that the Church was putting on but I was too tired. Poor pregnant me. lol The funny thing about that is, MATT ENDED UP FALLING ASLEEP! By around 1045pm. HAHA! I woke him up at 12 and told him Happy New Year and he sat up and was like, "Huh? It's already midnight." lol Then we kissed (aw adorable) and went to bed. Very uneventful, but I wouldn't change it for the world.
Now it's JANUARY!
I have lot's of new years resolutions. First and foremost... I will have a baby! :) And then, I will lose the weight. Here's a preview of the rest...
