Florida and only 4 more weeks to go!!!

Well, things are going really great!!! We are finally in Florida, and loving every second of every day. No offense to Idaho, but Florida is definitely a million times better!!!

Our travel down here was uneventful, which is good, seeing as Ashlynn was 35 and half weeks pregnant. We have already gone and seen the doctor, and gotten everything set up for little Adilynn Louise to be born here in Florida. We went to the doctor on Monday, and the doctor told us that she is pretty much ready to be here, so needless to say, we are very excited. The doctor informed us that she will be here sometime within the next 25 days or so.

Ashlynn has had her baby shower, and needless to say, our baby girl is probably the most spoiled kid on the planet!!! We literally have everything for this little girl!!!

Our little girl a mover!!! It is so much fun to sit and watch Adi move from side to side. We can often see her little hands and feet pushing out. We are so excited for our little girl to finally get here!!!
Here are some of the maternity pictures that we had taken.  Thanks to Ashlynn's big sister Tabitha.  She did a great job!

7 more weeks :)

Lots has happened since our last post.  We were in the process of moving apartments and long story short, it all fell through.  So come end of August, we would have no where to live and Michael came up with the brilliant idea of just going to Florida and being with family when Ella gets here.  Yes, we are pretty positive Ella is her name.  Anyhow, I called my parents and asked them what they thought of the idea and if it was ok if we lived with them those few months and they were both excited to have us (I'm sure because of Ella!)  What grandparents wouldn't want to have their granddaughter around??  Especially since before, they wouldn't see her until she was almost 2 months old.  We are both so excited!!!  I am probably a little bit more since I'll have my mother and 2 nurse sisters there with me when I go in to labor.  And hopefully Michael's mom!  She is coming to stay for a few weeks and we can't wait to have her!

We leave in a little over a week and can't wait to get there!!  We are both off track in the Fall so we will stay until after Christmas and come back up to Rexburg.  We also realized that Michael wouldn't be able to graduate with an AA before July.  So he is going to play Mr. Mom for my last 2 semesters of school and then we are FINALLY out of Rexburg.  YYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!

It's really neat to see all of our dreams coming true and I'm really excited for Michael to watch his first baby grow and not just hear about it or see it on a video because I'm sure he will be the one working and going to school for all the other kids.  God has really blessed us and we are more than thankful<3

Oh and update on Ella...  She gets the hiccups ALL THE TIME!!  At least twice a day.  It's kinda funny but is starting to get quite a bit uncomfortable because her head is so low!  It will even wake me up at night now!  But she gets so flustered and my belly will go crazy the whole time so it's really fun watching.  She moves around constantly so Michael and I are probably going to have our hands full!  I feel some kind of movement at least every half hour.  What she's doing in there, I have no idea.  But I'm sure being so squished, (since I'm so short) isn't fun.  Being pregnant is such an awesome experience but I am more ready to get her out and get to meet our beautiful baby girl :)
