Miracles Happen!!!

This blog now proves that miracles do happen. I don't know what is the bigger miracle, my graduating from college or my actually blogging about it....I guess time will tell.

It is official I graduated with my BS in Nutrition from Bastyr University last Monday (June 23) Rob's parents and my Dad and his significant other (Kelli) all came down to visit. It was great having them all there to support me, Thanks guys!!! Luckily it was not too hard for them to find me in the crowd during the ceremony, it turns out that a 7.5 month pregnant woman who is a foot taller than the person she is sitting by is not to hard to miss!

Other than that Rob and I are getting ready for Lydia to come 6 weeks to go! I can't believe how fast it has gone. Lately I haven't had any classic pregnant moments, though I must admit in the beginning I had a few classic stories! Oh the joys of maternity!

Yeah, we are pretty lame at this

Okay, for those that still actually read this blog, our regrets for not updating this as much as we should...I want to say that its because we have been pretty busy...but then I realize that so is everyone else.

Where to start...the stork is scheduled to drop off our baby this August. To prepare, we bought car seat...I think we are pretty much set. Jen disagrees. I would spout off her list of "things" that we need but that would take a lot of blogs to cover. We are both really excited for the arrival of Lydia. Her name will be Lydia Michelle. First name is because it seemed to fit nice, and middle name is after my Aunt whom Jen and I absolutely cherish. You can't always be 100% sure of a name, so we have reserved Gertrude Agnes in case Lydia Michelle doesn't quite fit.

Lets see. I recently passed my general exam. I am trying my hardest to come up with a positive or non-offensive adjective to describe the experience. Needless to say, I passed and it is over. Jen came over to the UW to go out and celebrate. Those exams can really leave you feeling empty, but to make up for it, my boss let me teach his organic chemistry class. He now even lets me feed his fish when he goes on trips (man, this PhD thing is really moving me up in this world).

As for Jen, she is in the final stretch of school. On June 23rd she will graduate with her Bachelors in Nutrition. Hopefully she will blog about that when it happens. We actually try to get out and enjoy this time of year...when the Sun is suppose to be out. I took this pregger snapshot of Jen at a place called Carkeek Park...

Oh and as the weeks go by, Jen has been feeling a 'nesting' urge. I guess it is pretty common among the pregnant folk. To remedy this, we bought Jen a bird feeder for our porch. The bird feeder attracts a bird called a Steller's Jay.

These guys are pretty smart. They first would come by only once or twice a day to get some food, but they now come by about 10 times a day and take loads of peanuts. I guess they bury them or throw them and lesser birds or sell them at Mariners games or something...I don't know.

Anyway, thats all on us. Hopefully we will turn a few more blogs out this summer.
