Everyone I Know...

Is pregnant. Or just had a baby or already has a baby. What is the deal? It must be the spring weather or something. Literally, all of the couples in our friend groups are pregnant! We're the last ones apparently. I was venting about it a few months ago to Jared and I said "The only other couple besides us that isn't pregnant is Mitch and Katie. Thank goodness for them!" And the very next day she calls us and tells us she is pregnant! Oh, the irony. She just found out she's having a girl. Congrats to her! Honestly.. I love that people are building their families and it makes me so happy to hear when someone is pregnant. It's just one of those "I feel like the last woman on earth that isn't pregnant" kinda feelings. Irrational, I know.

I had a great weekend with my in-laws! We had a girls trip up to Rexburg to drop Jessie off at college. I went to BYU-Idaho for three semesters and that was about enough for me. I'm a city girl all the way and had a hard time with small town life. We got her all set up and had such a good time chattin' about different things. For pics, please visit my sis-in-law's blog. Just don't look at the pic of me. Yuck!

And... that's about all the news. Jared's graduation is on May 8th! I'm counting down the days. Silently, since it bugs Jared when I remind him. He's too busy taking tests and writing papers or some such thing. I will DEFINITELY remember to bring my camera for that occasion!

I felt that way too. Michael and I were married 3 years before I got pregnant. You wait as long as you want....there is always time! What made the situation hard for me was that I wanted to get pregnant, and I was ready....I just couldn't! But the Lord knew what He was doing, and our family is just the way it should be.

I was always the last to do everything...get married, get pregnant, we still don't have a house...BUT I have to say the pregnant thing never bothered me because I didn't want to be! Good thing ours was unplanned. Otherwise, I would have been 30 without children.

I know the feeling. I felt the same way because everyone around me was prego. It didn't happen for us until Ryan finished school. It seemed to happen at the right time for us. The time will come. Just enjoy sleeping quietly through the nights right now!! Sleep is to be cherished before kids arrive.
Congrats to Jared and the graduation. That is awesome!! We are really happy for you guys.

Your too cute. My dad always tells me babies come when babies come, and who cares if everyone else is pregnant, everyone starts their families at different times. Enjoy the time you and Jared have alone, because once you do have kids you won't have all that quality time together.

Any more thoughts on the moving?

Jared and Caitlin said...

Michelle - Our PG situation? We're both excited and ready. Right now everything is really uncertain as to where we're going to be living (where Jared gets a job) so I think once everything settles down and the stress is relieved it'll be time. Well, that's what I say! Heavenly Father might have something else in mind. ;-)

Kenna - As to moving.. we're not sure. Right now we're here. Jared is looking for jobs both here and in SLC and we've selected a few other states just for backup. We're not super picky as to where we live. CA is out for sure, since they won't allow Jared to have his guns there. ;-) So, for right now... we're here. Even if Jared gets a job here we will probably stay in the same apt for awhile.

Dumb Cali...we would have loved to have you guys closer. :)

Thanks for the update, can't wait for you guys to have a little one. But yes, even if you're ready it doesn't always mean it's time. LOL

hey cait...just so you don't feel alone on this one, every girl who wants kids has felt this way..but the funny thing is, there is always someone that is going to look at you and be like "Ohh..she is prego..i want to be prego.." it is a viscious cycle, but it will happen, don't worry, it will come exactly when it is supposed to..you guys will be great parents, but just enjoy now...it is a fun time of marriage. and btw..you don't look bad in that pic! that was a fun trip, thanks again for going, and i can't wait 'til jared's grad, it will be fun, what are we goign to do for food for the bbq?

Monty and Kristin said...

Hey, congrats on graduation! That's so awesome. I know that took a lot of work from both of you!! Hope you get your wish soon. You'll be such fun parents.
