Time is just zooming by...

Can't believe Halloween has come and gone! Tomorrow are the elections and we start our first childbirth class tomorrow night. We'll have 4 classes to go to which are through the hospital in Ames we'll have Ryder at. I'm excited for everything to come but also nervous, of course! My water aerobics class is going really well... It's sooooo nice to be in the water and feel weightless, you almost forget you're pregnant. The minute you're out of the water you feel like 200 lbs. heavier, it's hard to get out.
Paul and I are getting so excited for my family (well, my parents and Marie) to come visit us for Thanksgiving! We're so glad they're coming and are praying for good weather! Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...after they leave! ;) It's actually been unseasonably warm weather this past week or so, but by the end of the week we'll be in the 40's...noooo!
Ryder's kicking stronger than ever! At work I constantly find myself going "Owww!!" But then I tell him how good a boy he is to be moving around so much! I love the movement even if it's uncomfortale or painful, to know he is all right makes me so happy! All we want is a happy, healthy baby boy in 2 months!!
By the end of this week (my 32nd) he'll weigh about 4 lbs. I can't believe it! Paul and I couldn't be happier for everything that's going on at this time, and we can't say enough how lucky and blessed we feel to have Ryder on his way.
Paul's really busy at work right now, and they have some really exciting stuff coming up!! He loves his job so much and that makes me so happy! His company is moving to a bigger building in a week or so and that will give them all quite a bit more room.
Here are some pictures, since my belly has grown quite a bit more. I'm still feeling good, and except for the occasional back ache (mostly at night) all is going really well...

Can't wait to see our newest little family member! You look beautiful!

We lived on Lincoln Way in some apartments (3522 Lincoln Way, I even remember the address, whoa) across the street is a McDonalds and a Philipps 66 on the corner of the apartments area.

I still can't believe you are in Ames. Do you know President Cheney? He was my institute instructor. Also Elwyn & Carolyn Taylor must be in your ward. He was our Branch President.
