The Latest


Life is changing around the Anderson home. The baby isn't here yet, but changes are already happening that are making me believe more and more that we will have a baby soon. It is amazing to think that in just 4 1/2 months little scout will be here. For Family Home Evening on Monday night we decided to clean out "The Nursery". It's amazing how much stuff we had in there. We definietly took advantage of the extra space. We now have everything moved into the other bedroom and I love it. It is clean and somewhat organized. It's been fun to gather some ideas of how we want to decorate the nursery, but nothing has really stuck. It is hard for me to decide things like that because kids change so much and what I like now probably won't be the same in just three months. Little man's closet is bare now, but I know grandma's are already shopping for him. These are things that Ben and I have bought before we knew if we were having a boy or girl. I am grateful that my intuition of having a boy was right, because we had alot more boys stuff than girls stuff.

Cherokee is loving having this clean bedroom to go in and sprawl out and eat her bone. She isn't going to know what to do when we actually start getting things in there. We still LOVE having Cherokee around. Sounds silly because I know that my dog wouldn't kill a fly but when she is home and Ben is not I feel safer having her here. I know she watches out for me and Ben all of the time. She knows when I am sick and not feeling well. She would sit on the side of me whenever I had to run to the bathroom to throw up. She is going to be a great sister to this little guy. Ben and I are still thinking that she will sleep in the hallway when the baby comes that way she will be in between us and the baby. For the first couple of months though we will all be in the same bedroom so that will be a fun experience.

Ben is being a good husband and has told me that he will help out around the house seeing that my energy level has gone down. I am grateful for his hard work and dedication to our little family. He seems to love the body pillow we bought for me so that I can sleep at night. Well...one night I came home from work to find him like this....
And as for myself, I am not as tired as I use to be, and I am feeling good. It's time to go and buy some maternity pants because I have an ever growing baby bump...


Life is GOOD!!!!
We hope everyone has a
