well friends i have started a new adventure. I have started reading a lot more in the last few months and i LOVE it! i know that my desire for reading in the past has really been non existent, but since we got pregnant, i have read some really good books. so i have decided to keep on with my latest desire. I know that might change some when Lily comes along, but i will still try to get some reading in every day. I just finished the Baby wise book. MAGNIFICENT! i will definately give the schedule thing a try. hopefully i can get some sleep too. with anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks left, i have decided to start reading Emma, Jane Austen. This actually has me very excited. i have seen the movie( with gweneth paltrow) but it was so long ago. i don't even remember the story all that well. I have begun this journey and i can't wait.
yes i did say 2-4 weeks. I went to the dr yesterday and he said that he didn't want the baby to get too big, so he might induce me early. Well she is at 6.12 lbs right now, and i was 9.2 lbs, ben was around 8 lbs, so i expected a 8 or 9 lb baby. well i am not complaining though, i would love to have her come early! it would just make everything else grand! we will see. i am hoping that Heavenly Father will have mercy on me, and help me go into labor early, rather than being induced. it does kind of scare me. i just don't want it to make things get harder or longer....ya know? anywho....back to Emma.

baby room...

we are almost fully done with the baby room. when ben and i got married, my grandma gave me a quilt that she had for over 20 years and it was made by my grandpas mother or grandma.....it is beautiful. it is hand quilted....i didn't want it to get dirty so i am going to hang it on the wall. so i have yet to do that. but other than that, here is the closest finished product.

my new recliner that i found on craigslist for $150...it is great!

we took the doors off the closet so that i could have room for the dresser..i have to still get curtains for this area.

I love fall!

well i know this is a little early but i changed my backround for fall. i love this time of year. it is my favorite. i love going to HS football games, smelling the fresh air, and seeing all the trees change color. they haven't really changed all that much here in chico, but it is september and i know they will soon. today also means that we have about a month left before Olivia arrives. we are excited. the crib finally did come. it is in pieces in the front room, but ben bought some mountain dews, and him and aaron are going to put the set together tonight....so we will update soon!
