Sophia 7 1/2 months

Sophia is now 7 1/2 months! She has 3 1/2 teeth; she sits; eats solids, paper, and price tags. She has actually pooped out a price tag that still said "suggested retail price." She is a big talker, especially at church (for some reason church inspires her squeals, grunts, and babbles) where she frequently competes for attention with her extremely adorable vocalizing. Relief Society loves her, however most of the women are pregnant with their first child, therefore I am positive they dream of having a sweet baby like Sophie.

Sophie the day after her hospital release. She ended up back in ER because she was horribly sick, but not too sick to enjoy the new toy attached to her arm. She didn't mind the IV at all, but loved biting, sucking, and analyzing the yellow bee wrap.

I love walks! And leaning forward to suck and bit on my tray.

This is the basket where we keep her toys. I'd love to say she did this on her own, but no, I posed her.

This is my favorite outfit for church. I love her leggings! Everyone told me how cute she looked, and, if I could take credit, many babies were in leggings after that. Right after this picture we had the prayer to begin Relief Society, during which Sophie made some suspicious sounds. Later, 30 minutes later, Sophie was scooting around for toys and I noticed a huge orangish goop on her beautiful quilt. Unfortunately, blowouts are always a risk.

Sorry, especially to my Mom, for not posting for 5 months! Seriously ashamed that Sophia is 4 months old and not one picture of her was posted. Well, for the few followers that I might still have, here are a few of our beautiful Sophia.

Feeling Huge!

Finally in the home run of pregnancy, but I hear the last couple weeks is the longest... so far so true! I am still teaching and hope to teach up til the second I am in labor, and my kids are just as excited as I am. In fact I passed out paper for them to write down name ideas (they don't know we have one picked out yet) and told them if we picked their name I would give them a candybar.

Here is an updated picture at 35 weeks.

26 Weeks Pregnant

I am starting to get big and still have 3 more months... any guesses on how big I will be? Really, getting bigger is uncomfortable, just when I think my tummy couldn't possible stretch any further it seems to keep growing! Although pregnancy doesn't feel that great sometimes, we are so excited for March to welcome our new addition!

It's a GIRL!

Over the weekend I was feeling some strange pains that made me worry, so Monday (yesterday) I made an appointment. They decided it was best to give me an ultrasound to check things out... nothing to worry about. The advantage was that I found out I was a week further than I thought and I could find out what we were having. Of course Andrew wasn't there because it was last minute, so I called him to come down so we could find out together. Luckily the nurse and office was so nice to let me wait until Andrew got there (45 minutes later).

The entire pregnancy we both felt we were having a girl (and most everyone we know thought so too) so we weren't too surprised, but still very happy. The majority of my family side is girls: sisters, aunts, cousins, etc; so, it would have been different for me to have a boy... but, maybe next time. I think Andrew is a little worried we'll have all girls, so he plans on TomBoying our girls a little until he gets a boy, but we all know I will girlify our little chick, so we'll have some super cute Girly soccer/softball/hunter/fisher girls.

Little Baby Marx

I think most everyone we know knows by now, but hey what's a blog for but old information that comes too late to be real exciting. Still, we are excited to welcome little baby Marx to our little family in March. It's been a summer of newness- moving to a new place, new jobs, and a baby... keep the good luck rollin' in!

6.5 weeks- and the big black circle is not the head, it's the yolk sack.

Almost 10 weeks- crazy how fast they grow in there! You can see the body and if you look close you can even see little fingers. There is only a 3 week difference in these ultrasounds.

7th Grade

Yes, I am the newest addition to Kennedy Jr. High in West Valley. I will be teaching 7th grade reading and English. I can't tell you how excited I am. Seems like I have been interviewing and waiting forever, but tomorrow I get to see my new classroom and start planning my first year of teaching! Yea!
