I have been thinking a lot lately about becoming a mom and the hopes I have for myself. I hope that I can be a fair mom to all my kids. I hope that I can give them the same amount of time and attention to each and child that we have. I will have unconditional love for all of them. I never want my children to feel like one is loved more than the other, or one gets more attention than the other. I hope when they have children we can do the same for their children loving them equally as the other.

We have had a busy summer with visitors and traveling. I am so glad that my dad came up to visit us. I was homesick and feeling sad because my mom is not here to do the baby stuff with me. He went to Babies R US with us. He helped us pick out stuff for the baby and was telling James all of his secrets. I cried for an hour after he left. I can’t wait to see him soon. I am looking forward to having a few weeks to get things ready for the baby and just relax with James. We are looking forward to CFD. This will be our last year of being able to go to everything that we want, but that is ok we are so excited for the little one to get here. I hope everything works out and we can go to the concerts and events that we want. We are looking forward to having some friends come up and being able to spend some time with them.

After Yellowstone we went into Jackson Hole I had never been there before. I wish we could have spent more time there. After Jackson, James and I went on to Cody and stayed for a few days. We went to the Buffalo Bill Historical Center. We should have spent two days there instead of five hours. The center has so much stuff to look at and the gun museum would have taken us a day just to go through that..

My favorite part of Yellowstone was seeing all the baby animals. They are so dang cute. Sorry all the pictures are blurry apparently I was so excited I could not take I could picture.

To get to the Lower Falls we had to hike down a trail and then we had to take 354 stairs to get to the bottom of the falls. This was a challenge for me being six months pregnant. The stairs go straight down and up. I am glad I tortured myself to see it.

The Upper and Lower Falls of Yellowstone were beautiful. We hiked up and down to see both of them. The first pictures are of the upper falls.

Right before this picture a bear walked right across the road but I only got the back side of him walking into the woods.

James wanted to go to Yellowstone this year for vacation. I was a little nervous being six months pregnant because I knew James would want to do a bunch of hiking. We had a great time with Jay and Nancy we camped in the motorhome just outside of the park entrance.

I can’t believe it is June already. We have been out of school since the first of May we were ready for school to be out. I am sad that I won’t be going back until the spring semester, but I am so excited to become a mother. We went home the last part of May for the only visit we will be able to do this year. It was good to see everyone and spend time with our families.

It has been awhile since I have blogged so I thought I would sit down and update. We found out that we are having a baby boy. We are so excited and cannot wait until he is here. Everything is looking great I have only gained 4lbs. Every time I go in and they listen to his heart they tell me he is a busy boy in there because his heart rate is so fast. James felt him kick for the first time and the look on his face was priceless.
