Introducing Baby Milo!

Here is a slideshow Les put together of Milo's first week with us. His middle name is "Jan" pronounced "Yawn". He is named after my Grandfather who was Dutch.

Congratulations Matt!

I need to brag.  My amazing awesome cousin Matt (who is married to my equally amazing cousin Paige) was just appointed as the new president of Utah Valley University.  Read about him here.

Baby Day

Why is it that when you are pregnant - and huge - people think they can say whatever they want to you? I don't often approach obese people and comment to them how enormous they are. Or touch their bulges.

Here are a few great comments I have gotten the last few weeks. (mostly all from one amazing conversation)

- The classic "are you having twins?"

- And on multiple occasions "you are HUGE" with their eyes bulging out.

- And finally, a Cuban Woman in her 70's who attends our ward asked when I was due. I tried to be funny by telling her I wasn't pregnant - I just eat a lot of ice cream. She followed up with "really? so do you think the baby will be large?"

- Same Cuban, same conversation a few minutes later noted that she would like to be able to take a picture of me naked. "You know, like this" she motioned with her arms that I would be able to cover up some areas. And then she tried to back up a little by saying "well, i used to be a nurse. And I'm very into art. " Apparently my figure needs to be preserved in photos for science and the arts.

But...don't worry about me, my feelings weren't hurt whatsoever. There's something about being old and Cuban (or old in general - but especially old with accent) everything she says sounds so funny.

P.S. My Dr scheduled an induction for me the morning of March 27th! It feels so good to know when this bub is coming.
