Well this is the last blog of 2009 and although it isn't a super exciting one for everyone else, it is for me. We had an ultrasound done a week before Christmas and it was the most amazing thing ever. I could not believe that in just three weeks from the last one that our little one has grown so much, you could tell what everything was and it was so crazy. It was also really fun because he/she had hiccups the entire time and so it was pretty funny. Also it likes to keep both hands in front of the face too, it was so cute. It was really nice to see it move around and to start looking more like a baby, but we still have one more month to go until we find out whether it is a boy or girl and then the fun can begin in planning for June! To me it is incredible how much I honestly already love this little baby, it definitely is a growing experience and I am trying to love and enjoy every minute of it.

Well sorry that my blog is lacking in the area of fun pictures lately, maybe I will decide to get myself ready for the New Years and post a picture of Todd and I at 15 weeks...maybe. I hope that you are all as excited for the year 2010 as we are and we wish you all the best!

I sure love the holidays! Thanksgiving has gotten me so excited for Christmas and I can't believe that it is already December, it is so crazy! Todd had a birthday yesterday and it feels like his last birthday was barely a month ago, time is flying by so fast I can't even believe it. I just want him to know that I sure love him and think he is the greatest husband ever. I do have a few recent pictures of Todd, but that will be a fun post about the Jazz game we went to on Thanksgiving, so I guess I do have lots to catch up on! For now I will just put up a picture of my handsome husband doing what he loves to do...this was from Alaska, we sure love that place!

In other big news...we have moved in! Hooray! With everything with the whole housing loan process it seemed as if this day would never come, and for the past few days we have actually been sleeping and living in our own home, it is kind of unreal and hasn't really hit yet. Gus actually doesn't realize that we live here, what with being displaced to Grandma Debi's while we have been working on it, he just keeps walking by the front door and waiting for us to leave and go home. Oh well, eventually he will love it like we do and realize he has way more room...he sure does love his new big backyard with friends on all sides to bark at. It is kind of strange to have neighbors now. My next post should be pictures of the before and after...but that will be in a while after we get all settled in of course.

We would really like to say thanks to everyone who has put in countless hours helping us work on the house there is no way we can even begin to repay you! Thank you for your many hours pulling awful wallpaper, sanding, mudding, texturing, primering, painting-thanks to the master Wendy who is so fast and so amazing, all of the beautiful finish work with the baseboards, casing, and our wonderful closets and doors-seriously Jay you are the best! Also our entryway railing which is so beautiful that Todd's grandpa LaGrand built for us, and many other things I am sure I am forgetting...(like the roof--thanks Jay and Cody!) Oh and of course, we can't forget the big move which was a great combined effort, which never would have happened without the help of my mother who was able to keep everyone on task with her master packing skills! I really don't want to leave anyone out especially since I had lots of dogsitters for Gus and lots of people who took care of us for I guess just Thank You Everyone!

In other Really Big News...we have a very small announcement to make...really it is very little and just about two inches but we are so incredibly excited about it and get more and more excited every are assuming correctly...Todd and I are going to have a baby in June! We found out the day after we closed on our house on October 15th and it has been consuming my thoughts for the past few months! I know that our family knows so it isn't going to be a big shock, but for those of you who we haven't run into us lately we just wanted to let you know. It is so crazy and I have been really sick, but we are hoping within the next few weeks it will change for the better, right? Anyways, we won't find out if it is a boy or a girl until sometime in January, but we will keep you updated. This is just a fun little ultrasound we had when I was just over 10's hard to see what is what, but I was just glad to see something there!

So yeah, lots of things are happening over here at the Whatcott household and every day I am so amazed at how truly blessed we are. I know there have been times when I thought this day for us would never come, but it seems that good things come in pairs with the house and the baby happening all in a matter of days and with all that we have been through, it is really helping me to appreciate everything more than I might have if it would have all come easily to us. We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends, and it really makes it that much easier to be thankful for all we have.
