A note my husband wrote

March will be an eventful month for our family.
Nicole is pregnant-miserable but thankfully she is doing well, no serious complications. She is scheduled for a C-section on Friday, March 12th at noon. Right now we call the baby boy, Baby-X. We have a few names picked out but nothing defininte yet.
Ammon will be a sweet big brother. Sabrie makes me fear for our new baby's life. She is very possessive. At least once a day I hear "My mommie" or "My daddy" from her. She has also recently started telling people "My Ammy." Anyone comes near Nicole or me and Sabrie calls down the thunder and lightning. It's cute in a way, but when the new baby comes I think Sabrie will have a rude awakening. Hopefully we can include Sabrie and make her feel the baby is "My baby" and not competition for mommy and daddy.
March 6th is also an important date for us. We will be going to the Jordan River temple to be sealed together as a family. Some of you may not believe in the LDS church, but hopefully you'll still be happy for us as this is something meaningful and special to us.
I finally decided to test for sergeant. I passed the first phase. We'll see how the rest goes.
Nicole and I had a surreal moment. We began the process of registering Ammon for kindergarten. I can't believe how big he's getting. I'm so proud of him. Sometimes he's got a sassy mouth, but that kid has a big, loving heart. He's smart and friendly and I'm confident he'll do well in school.
Anyway, I just wanted to share some of what's going on in our family. Hope all of you are doing well.

Temple Dreams

Today I called and scheduled a date to take out my endowments and get sealed to my beautiful family. We are going to the Jordan River Temple on Saturday March 6th at 5:20 for endowments and then the sealing will happen at 7:30. I am so excited to see my little babies all dressed in white. I have really come a long way in my life and am finally ready for this new chapter even though I am a ginormous pregger person. Hehe....Hope they have a temple dress big enough!

Baby X is scheduled

We went to the doctor yesterday for our 36 week appointment. Everything is looking great. I am not dialated or effaced at all. We decided on a date to have our little guy meet us in person. It was so weird to do that. I have never scheduled a day to have a baby. He will arrive around 12:00 pm on Friday March 12th! We are so excited and nervous too. Even though I have done this before I still get nervous for the whole C-section. I just can't wait to meet my little man.

Today is my little sister's due date for her little man to come into this world. I am so excited to meet him. I remember being where she is at a few years ago. There is nothing worse than hitting that due date with no baby. Every minute past the due date is torture. I feel her pain. The bright side is that everything is going well for her and her baby is healthy. I am so grateful to be sharing this time with my baby sister and watch her become a mother. She and Aaron are going to be the cutest parents.
