Parents coming and first trimester over!

Kyle's parents come to visit next week along with my mom for a few days. We are really excited to have them come! We cleaned the whole house yesterday, but I'm sure my mom will still find something to clean when she gets here:) We go to the doctor on Wednesday to find out if we're having a boy or girl. Time is running out, so don't forget to VOTE! What will baby Erickson be?

I've been starting to feel a bit better. Still tired, but not so food averse and nauseous. Yeah! It's getting better!

Kyle finished up his TAing for anatomy. One of the students brought him cookies to thank him for his help. She made sugar cookies in the shape of body parts, so there was a heart, lips, bones, etc. Pretty darn cool! I want him to find her and get the recipe because they were amazing! The students put together some money so the teachers could take the TAs out to lunch too. How awesome is that! They must have done a really good job!

School starts for Kyle on the 30th. We're excited, but not too excited. We're enjoying the time off. We just finished our Lord of the Rings marathon. Which series will be next? :)

I am PREGNANT! I am due February 4th, so I'm over 13 weeks right now. To be honest, I'm not really digging the first trimester, so I hope it gets better and I can stop feeling sick in the afternoons. I can still function, but I am tired and don't want to eat anything.

Kyle has been great!! SO HELPFUL! The other night, all I wanted to eat was a baked potato from Texas Roadhouse. After much discussion of options that we had at home, Kyle went to the kitchen to start making french toast. As soon as he got stuff out I said, "Or we could go to Texas Roadhouse:) " He came back in the room smiling and told me to go get ready. What a sweet guy! He also dedicated the white board in our kitchen to tracking how much water I drink everyday. He's done dishes and helped with housework. I'm not looking forward to school starting again, but hopefully I will feel better soon:)

We will find out what we are having in a few weeks. What do you think? Boy or Girl? Please vote! :)
