Benny update

I am proud to say that Ben is finished with microbiology!! He was taking this class along with his first semester of nursing school.. he finished with a score of 99.7%!!!!!!!!!!! I am soo proud!! His first month of nursing school has gone well.. he's putting a lot of time into preparing for each day. I can't believe how quick it's gone by....

Thank you all for your supportive comments about our new bundle of joy!! I know that he/she too will be here before we know it!!

Baby M - 8 weeks

Avery's going to be a big sister!!!

It's true, Ben and I are having a baby!! I'm sure you've already heard/read something Amber (my sis) has written!! She's beyond excited; been wanting this since Ben and I said 'I do' haha
I've known since July 1 that I might be preggers..... I went to the doctor yesterday (7-27) which confirmed it.. I actually got to see and hear the heartbeat of 141!!!! Below are a couple of pictures I tried to capture of the actual home pregnancy test. I'm pretty sure when it was all said and done I took about six... just in case!!
Ben and I are beyond excited about this new adventure we're about to go on... I've been saying this whole time that God sure has a sense of humor!! Ben will be in his junior level of nursing school when baby M is due.... thankfully, I have a wonderful boss and a flexible schedule that I'll be able to bring baby M to work with me for a few months!! My boss told me, "surely you don't want to stay home six weeks." As for now that's the only big decision we've made... with Ben and I both being nurses we're hoping to have our schedules where one of us will be able to stay home with baby M.... We're so blessed to have such great family and friends!!
Please keep us in your prayers....
Baby M is due March 9, but I'm not a fan of odd numbers so I'm bumping it to March 8 (I know March is an odd month but as long as you say March and not 3 I'm fine with it) I'm feeling great, working 5 days a week and taking a lot of naps!! I will try and be a better blogger and keep things updated... I'm one of those people who LOVES pregnant women and their bellies so when one starts to pop out I'll be sure and put pictures up!!
All you dog lovers (not my sister) don't worry about Avery, she's our #1 baby and always will be!! (She will continue to sleep in our bed)

Avery - 1 yr, 2 months

There's a dog store @ the Chenal Promenade that has all kinds of gourmet dog treats!! Any time I'm in the area I go by and get Avery a few treats... This particular trip I got her a doggy happy meal.. it came with a free toy. Below you'll see what happened to her free toy... these pictures were takin about 5 minutes after giving it to her....
Here is her burger and fries.. she really enjoyed it!!

Avery is about 115lb now give or take.. yet she still thinks she's a lap dog!! As I'm writing this she's sitting on my bed watching me, pitiful!!
The Grant family leaves for the beach early tomorrow morning... because Ben started school last Monday he will not be able to go with us.. I'm sad but I know he's doing it for us and in a few years it will pay off!! I'll have lot's of pictures to come..
Today is my MIL's birthday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARY ANN, we love you!!
