4 more weeks

We have four more weeks until our little baby's due date. Do you know how that makes me feel?

Like it's the last month of my life.

Like my life is just about to begin.

Like it couldn't come fast enough.

Like there is not enough time and I need another nine months to prepare.

Like there is no way I could be 22 and be called MOM.

Like I'm about to meet someone very important.

Like my heart is about to belong to someone else.

Needless to say I am anxious and have mixed feelings and don't know what I'm doing.  But then I look down and watch my belly move and know that whatever fears I may be having, the wonder and excitement of it all surpasses all negative emotions and I am calm again, and sincerely "overjoyed" (as Stevie Wonder would put it).

Besides all of that excitement, Scott and I just got a new camera off of craigslist. It's a Cannon something something something, Digital SLR thingy. I'm not really sure. All I know is we had the PERFECT model this weekend to test it out on.  Becky and Landon came down for the 4th on their way to Yellowstone and we got a few snaps of sweet little Mona. She has me completely wrapped around her finger. Can't wait to have my own baby girl.

Just woke up!

                             4th of July!

We went to a parade in the morning of the 4th, and Mona spent some time at the splash park and riding on the carousel. We barbecued with Scott's cousins the Crooks, and later that night we watched Mean Girls ( i know so patriotic) and Landon bought us all shakes at a new place down the street. A great visit with the Copes.

Last but not least I have to share this epic fail that happened in San Diego, CA. Somehow they lit off all their fireworks on accident at the same time. Here's the video of a firework show in 10 seconds:
