Christmas Time

Finishing up Christmas shopping today and very excited to spend Christmas with our families! This will be our first Christmas as a married couple. We'll be splitting time between Nada and Tomball. And next year we'll be traveling with two dogs and a baby!

Merry Christmas!

Here is a picture of me at alomst 17 weeks. I've been experiencing some very interesting (and not so great) things happening to my body that many people fail to tell you pre pregnancy. I won't share all the details but if you're thinking about getting pregnant, we'll consult. It's really not glamorous :)

Really loving my time off from school and work! Don't forget to vote "boy" or "girl" on the right sidebar.

Happy 30th Birthday Kevin!

My brother turned 30 on December 10th! I can't believe he's 30!!

We took a family picture at his surprise party. I'm 15 weeks here in this pic.

Can't believe December is already here! Time has been flying by and we only have 2.5 weeks until our Holiday Break!

My master's classes end on December 6th which I couldn't be more happier about! I've already started volunteering in my library before, during and after school in order to obtain my 130 hours of librarian internship. I'm very tired and really looking forward to the break.

Baby Friedrichs is doing great and we heard the heartbeat again on Monday. It sounded strong and fast. We have officially decided to find out the sex and I think that will happen sometime after Christmas. I'll be 14 weeks Friday and I'm definitely rocking a bump nowadays. I'll have to post a picture soon. Clothing for work is always a chaotic mess in the morning and I've found very creative ways to mix, match and layer. I'm already starting to feel more achy while at school and I can't get up and down off the floor as easily. It should be interesting teaching wild third graders in May while I'm 9 months pregnant :)

Our house went under contract after only being on the market for 3 days and then sadly the buyer backed out last week. I was very upset but can only hope that the next buyer is right around the corner.

These two sweet angels are snoozing in bed with me while I work :) I walked into the room the other day and found them in this adorable pose.
