Playing Catch-up

It's been a REALLY long time. A lot has happened since then, but we, of course, didn't take any pictures of it...So I'll just fill you in on the details.

-Cody and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary!! Holy moly, it sounds crazy to say that. It's gone by so, so fast, but at the same time I feel like we've been married forever (in a good way!!)!! It was on Tuesday, July 15, so we didn't do anything..It was actually a really not fun day..We had school and were still stressing about finding an apartment. We went and looked at a house for rent that would've been so awesome to live at...If it was clean, the people currently living there weren't psycho, it didn't smell like urine and the people at Rentmaster who are in charge of selling it had a clue of what they were doing. Then we were supposed to sign a lease for our other apartment/house we were looking at but that lady was also kinda crazy... I think that's a trend for real estate people in Idaho. So anyway, I was upset about that and then Cody had to work and I babysat so we didn't really get to do anything that night. But the Saturday before we went to Applebees for dinner to celebrate. That was fun! I love being married and I love Cody to death! I'm so glad he is my husband!!!

-I feel like I'm getting huge. I'm 26 weeks now and I know I still have quite a ways to go, but I just want the baby to be here already! I think I'm getting those 3rd trimester feelings early and just want to be done and have a baby here to play with and take care of. I played music on my stomach for the first time about a week or so ago. She loved it! It was our wedding cd. The first song was Etta James and she was dancing a little bit..Then the second song was Tim McGraw. I LOVE Tim McGraw and Cody hates anything and everything country. I thought for sure she'd like him... But no. She didn't move ONCE! I was like-BABY! You can't be my baby and not like Tim McGraw! But Cody was so so so excited. I think she'll be a daddy's girl for sure-she's already taking after him. After that song it was a Jimmy Eat World song and she LOVED it. She was going crazy again, and this time she was hitting the headphones so hard you could see them jump. It was pretty awesome!
The past few days she hasn't been moving a ton- on Friday when Cody got home from work (at 11) I was kinda worried because I hadn't felt her move that I could remember since 4:30..But Cody said, "It's ok, I'm home now so she'll start moving." And she totally did! She still moves quite a bit in the mornings and randomly, but she moves a ton whenever Cody's there.

-School's out!!!!!!!!! OH goodness we're so happy. I was taking 14 credits but felt like I had a pretty easy load. Cody on the other hand had a ton of really hard classes and no time to finish any of his homework because of his work schedule. So I'm happier for him that it's over than me. Today is the first weekday since school is over and I came home from work at 12 and have just been lazy all day... I'm going to need to find some new projects. I'm super, super excited about having time to play my guitar again! I can't wait to get good at it!

-Satan has moved home!! We found a place and are moving in a little less than 3 weeks. It's just down the road from our place now and we like it. Cody's cousin Ashley and her cute family used to live there and I think we'll like it. I was kinda worried because we tried to give our apartment only 2 weeks notice, but they said they have to have at least 25 days. So we have to keep paying rent here until August 11. Unfortunately, the new place said we'd have to start paying rent there August 1 if we wanted to be 100% sure to get an apartment there. So we were going to have to pay double for a few weeks. Luckily I called and talked to a different guy and he said they need time to let the people move out and then clean, so he told me to pick a date to move in! I told him August 8 so we'd have time to move our stuff and then clean with everything gone. He said I could put down the deposit and even though they're only supposed to hold it for 2 weeks and then make you start paying, he'd hold it until the 8th with no extra money for rent! Satan totally left and took all his friends with him. Booyah we're so happy! So that saved us like $150ish bucks.

I think those are the major things that have been happening. Hopefully next time we'll have some pictures to go alone with the news!

finally you posted!! I have missed you on here :). Congrats on finding a place to live! I'm sure that's quite a load of stress that's gone! How much longer do you have in school?

sketigal said...

Yay for all of that! Let me know if you need help moving. All us work people should be on top of that; we've done it before, we can do it again!!

Amy said...

That's so great! Do you need help getting packed and moved? Are you packing or just moving?

Maybe Baby really likes Tim McGraw and she was just feeling mellow and happy and she was kicking the headphones to try and get the noise away!! :)

Are you legs still swollen?

I'm so glad you found a place and that satan is gone from Rexburg! :)

Love you!

Cody said...

No she was not kicking the headphones to get them off!! She was dancing! And she didn't move durning Tim McGraw because it was so boring and she was mad! :)

Grandma Nell said...

Cody - you're hilarious! I love that you had something to say about baby Chloe and her music taste!!! :)

As for your moving and finding an apartment finally, I'm so happy! I hope it all works out even better than you hope for. I'm also glad school is over and you both have time to breathe again - but all that will go away once you get in gear and start packing. If you don't do it everyday, you'll realize how much you have to do in so short of time!! Can't wait to have you guys visit us too!!! :)

Christine said...

Yay! I'm so glad you're not moving very far away!! We'll miss you at church, though. :( Especially Belle, she loves seeing you in nursery! But we'll still get to hang out. I love the little stories about Baby, so cute!

Ash said...

Yeah for two year and yeah for the apartment! We had a hard time too moving into idaho when we got there. we loved our apartment that we finally settled on (after moving in and out of a couple the first two weeks)pretty big and open especially for little people. (hint hint, wink wink, etc)

Jessica said...

So glad you were able to find a place to live! That is such a hard and stressful thing to worry about (especially when your pregnant). Tomorrow I'll be 9 days past my due date and totally understand about wanting the baby out. Hang in there!
