One giant post

I have a little catching up to do...

We have not had Internet since the new year (computer issues) so its been hard to keep up with the blogging.

I'll start off by saying that things are going well for us. I am still not working, but I think its for the better as every little move and motion gets harder and harder as my tummy gets bigger and bigger. I have also been sick the last week, so its been nice to stay home and get some rest.I have a OB appointment next week that will give us a lot of stats. I will post a belly shot then. Prepare to be shocked. I look like a lower case "b".

Matt has been busy working and going to class for Jiu-Jitsu. I told him to do as much as he could before the baby is here since I will probably want him around more then. He took my advice :) He has really helped out a lot with things in the house while we try and prepare for our son. We are in denial that there are only 3 months left.

A couple of weekends ago I had the day off from assisting Courtney, so Matt and I headed into Tacoma to visit the Glass Museum. We had so much fun. We watched them blow a few vases and we took our time in the exhibits. Matt was really enthralled with the creation of the pieces and he spent a lot of time watching the artists in the studio. It was nice to get out and do something together. We don't have a lot of time to do that any more, especially since the weather has kept us pent up so many days this winter.

My "kids" are all doing great as well. Brimley turns 1 this weekend, and he has sure grown up to be such a great guy! We love him a lot. He has recently learned to ring a bell when he wants to go outside. Princess and Brimley have become close friends now that she is spending most of the cold days cuddled up next to him. They even play together occasionally. I love it. Brisbane is her usual self. She is content watching Brimley run around, sitting next to me while I watch TLC or chewing on one of her many bones. She has gained a little weight in the last few months (oops) so her New Years Resolution is to regain her figure by the summer. Tina and I had a bonding moment this last week when she chose to eat out of my hand. Usually she is pretty grumpy, so this was momentous in our relationship. :) She still hates to be held, and scratched me pretty good when I tried, but at least we're heading in the right direction.

As if we don't say it enough, we are so excited to add one more little family member to the Aprecio household. I am LOVING being pregnant, but I cant wait to have my little boy! Its coming up quick!

New Years Eve

Happy New Year!This year, the About Face Band played at Razzles in Lake Stevens, so Matt and I were very excited to stay close to home and celebrate with my parents. We had some friends join us for dinner and a game of darts and we all sat back and enjoyed the music. Because the show was so close to our house, my parents stayed the night with us instead of drive back to Sammamish. They had their dogs Boomer and Bandi with them, so Brimley had the best time with them around.

The next morning we all headed into the mall, ate some sushi and shopped around a little at Babies R Us just for fun. We are all very excited for the things to come in 2009!
