These times are the best times of the entire summer! I, Marcel, never have any time to do anything special or fun with my fabulous little wife. Except for Sundays! I love the sabbath. Not only is church a nice transition to the beginning of a ridiculously repetative job! Its serously like that movie, " GroundHogs Day." But attitude is everything in this job, so I battle myself everyday as I try and keep motivated.
As for sundays, we're not the best at keeping them holy, as depicted in the photo on the left! Goodtimes! the only ones out here.
Not to justify but its just the only day we have. It's just a summer habit.
This is my effort towards being more involved! Love it! this isn't too bad. You can probably tell I've never been a myspacer. Honestly, I've never had time for it. Or I guess just saw it as not being worth my time. Today's obviously SUNDAY!
It's baby talk time! Here's my views of this right now. I'm going to be straight up and say it. It's still not real to me that we're having a baby, as crazy as that sounds. I'm excited! I really am. I'm sure its the fact that he's not in my belly and I am not really feeling any changes. Any who, I can't wait to see what my little guy looks like!

12 weeks and counting!


It's getting harder each month to get myself motivated to take a belly shot. These days there are less "good angles" and looking skinny is a thing of the past (for now!) Don't get me wrong though... I am definitely enjoying this journey my son and I are making together and Marcel gets a kick out of seeing my body change. He snapped this picture while we were going for a walk before we left for dinner last weekend. We've become good friends with another couple thats out here with their 2 adorable kids. We all went out for Pat's birthday at this restaurant called Taco Mac that everyone in our office has been raving about, but I think we left disappointed either way we had a great time just getting out together! Everyone tells me I'll miss my belly once its gone so I'm trying to enjoy it as much as I can. It's crazy to me that I have 3 months to go though. Cohen has still got some major weight to put on but my ribs are telling me thats just crazy! I don't how on earth there's going to be any room in there for him to get bigger. We finally bought our crib though and I am thrilled! I've spent the last week being Martha Stewart and making my own crib bedding. I'm actually really proud of how its turning out. So far I've finished the bumper pads and will be starting on the comforter next. We'll see how it goes. I'm an amateur at sewing in every sense of the word and thats why I love google! you can figure out how to do everything. I will gladly accept any advice from my crafty friends though (Alexis Beck that means you!) I'm counting the days until my return to Utah though... I'm so ready to get things organzed for our little ones arrival and see all of my beutiful friends and their babies and/or bellies! Until then I'll try to get better at this blogging thing.
