Thank You Very Mutchins!

The first set of pictures come from the baby shower my co-workers gave me about six weeks ago. Baby Will got so many new things! After this shower, we pretty much have received everything we will need for this little boy. We are so lucky to have such great family and friends! The last two pictures were taken this week and one of them shows the rocker/glider we just got thanks to some other gift money from our awesome family!

This is a baby bath thingy that I'm very excited to try out! Supposedly it's pretty great and still easy to store.

By far one of the most exciting gifts! I am so excited for my little Longhorn to get here so I can dress him in this outfit :) We have yet to receive any BYU gear for Tyler to represent his school...Which bothers him more than me.

One thing we really needed! Our pack n' play. We are going to keep Will in our room sleeping in this thing for the first little while. Some of my awesome co-workers went in together to get this for us.

This is my 37 weeks and 4 days picture. Today I went to the doctor and they said that I'm starting to progress towards labor, but nothing too big yet. I'm happy for baby Will to stay in his home in my belly until his Gram (my mom) is closer to coming into town.

Here is the rocker/glider I was talking about. It has an ottoman too. You're all welcome to come visit and rock baby Will right to sleep in it!

Viva Las Vegas!

For Memorial Day weekend, Tyler and I escaped to Las Vegas to get a little sun and warm weather in our lives. His grandparents live there in a beautiful house with a pool, so we really enjoyed that. We were especially glad that his parents and siblings drove over from California to spend the weekend with us as well. We only took pictures at Red Rock Canyon because we spent most of the weekend playing in the pool, shopping, watching movies, and playing the Wii. It was a perfectly relaxing weekend!

I'm pretty sure Tyler is in the danger zone in this picture with the combination of the aviators, air guitar, Texas shirt, and cool back drop. Grayson had also been air guitaring it up, but got distracted before I could take the picture.

Concrete Jungle Where Dreams Are Made Of

In May Tyler and I took a trip to New York City. My best friend and roommate from college, Amy, is currently living there with her husband Travis so we had many reasons for wanting to go. They will only be living there for another year, so we figured that at six months pregnant, we better take advantage of seeing the city while we had tour guides and before we have a small little baby. We had such a blast with Amy and Travis! Here are some pictures of the highlights.

Tyler's #1 favorite thing: The Yankees vs. Red Sox game. As you can see, we are supporting the Yankees. Tyler is a lifelong Yankees fan since his dad grew up in Rochester and Tyler's been watching games with him his whole life. It was his first time to Yankee stadium and we had a good time watching the game and a few scuffles that broke out in the crowd.

I am standing on the Brooklyn Bridge. There is another bridge behind me but I'm not sure which one it is. This was our second to last day and by far out worst weather day. Every other day was perfect! And even a little drizzle and clouds wasn't so bad.

Me and Amy sitting on the red stairs that are in Times Square. This is also the place where we bought our Broadway tickets. We saw Catch Me if You Can and really enjoyed it. We also enjoyed singing Alicia Keys and Jay-Z every time we went to Times Square...which was almost every day since Amy and Travis live so close to it.
The island of Manhattan is what's behind Tyler. We went on a boat tour our first day in the city and got to see all five boroughs from the cruise boat. It was really cool to get oriented and also see some things that we didn't want to necessarily take a tour of but we at least wanted to see what they looked like.
