A Blog, a Baby, and a Boxer named Bronco!

Let the Blogging begin! So after months of saying that I was going to start a blog so that everyone could keep updated on what was going on with us out here in AZ, I figured starting it two days before my due date was a great idea (because starting anything two days before your suppose to have a baby is smart, right)! I guess I will just say, better late then never! I have so much I could post about what has been going on with us since we moved out here, but for now I will make it somewhat quick and fill in the details later. In the last few months there are really just two words I can say that have been keeping us very busy...Baby and Boxer!

Clint (and I) decided that since we finally had a backyard big enough, three months before we have a baby would be a great time to buy a puppy. We have always wanted a dog and I know that it will be CRAZY with a newborn and somewhat trained puppy, but we decided that it was either now or much much later. So about three months ago we bought a boxer puppy from a local breeder and named him Bronco.

Bronco the day we brought him home









He is a hyper and stubburn puppy, but that face is just so cute how could you not love him! Bronco has been in puppy training classes for the last 5 weeks in hopes that he will beable to listen and behave when the baby comes and I am hoping that is the case but we will have to see. For now he is our kid and is sometimes a handful, but I just figure it is good preparation for what is about to come.

Now for the next word...BABY. As you may all know, Clint and I are expecting a baby girl on November 18th which is two days from now, but who's counting. We are so excited to finally meet her and hope that she comes soon, but until she does I will give you the most recent belly picture and you will have to wait just like us.


Taken today - 39 weeks & 5 days


Besides gaining weight and feeling like my belly is getting bigger by the hour, I have been busy trying to finish the nursery and other baby projects I decided to take on. Thankfully I have had a lot of help with those and will post all of the finished projects in the next couple of days. So I will end by saying welcome to our blog and please come again soon!
