It's a Boy!!

Well, Deak and I went into the doctor yesterday, and are VERY excited to announce, WE'RE HAVING A BOY!! We can't wait until he will be joining our family in March. And the baby is defiantly a Baker, haha, his stomach, arms and legs are in the 90%. So he's probably gonna be a big little boy! But when is having a chunky baby ever bad, right??

We have had names picked out since probably the week we found out I was pregnant, and if it was a boy it was going to be Curtis Thomas Baker, after both our dad's. But the night before we went into the ultrasound we decided to change it. So our little boy's name will be Kaed Curtis Baker. And Kaed, is Deak backwards, so we decided that deak's somewhat name sake should be our first boy. So we'll be using my dad's name for our 2nd boy.

Kaed Curtis Baker, Coming March 2010!!! :)

So little time, so much to do....

Wow, it's been forever since I've taken the time to sit down and update this thing! I can't believe it's already been almost 2 months... CRAZY!

Deak and I have been married for almost 6 months now! It's crazy to think we've only been married for that long, honestly it seems like we've been together forever (in a good way!). And I know it has a lot to do with everything we've gone through and experienced together as a couple, the good and bad! I definatly have grown to love him more and more everyday, and learned to appreciate him more and more for all the little things. Especially for putting up with me and my pregnant self!

Well, I am just about 19 weeks along now! and the nausea doesn't seem to have gotten much better.... I am happy to say I don't wake up feeling sick anymore! But if I don't at least take my nausea pill each day, I'm done for! And luckily we have wonderful insurance that covers them! I have to say it is a crazy feeling trying to prepare for a baby, be it financially, mentally and of course physically. We have definatly come to fully understand when everyone tells us there truly is never a perfect time to start a family, nor are you really ever truly ready for what life has in store for you after that! haha It's definatly been an experience trying to tie up loose ends thus far, and hope things are going to work out. There are just so many unanswered questions that come along with this experience and most of the time I wonder if we're going to have time to get some of it done before the baby actually gets here, but I know we're defiantly growing closer and stronger from everything we're experiencing, and of course we are soo very excited to become parents and start our family. We are especially excited because come next wed, we get to find out the sex of the baby! And I definatly will be posting again after we find out.

Along with the excitement of the baby, I FINALLY heard back on my nursing application I submitted in May of 2008! I was accepted into MCC's nursing school for the Spring semester of 2010. But, the baby is due sometime in mid-March, so luckily I was able to defer my postion until the August of next year. I was so excited just to finally hear back about it, that even though I have to postpone it a little longer, it's no big deal, I definantly think our baby's worth it! It's also kinda nice to be able to have a little more time to prepare for it as well.

So today Deak and I are finally leaving to go on our honeymoon!! We are both soooo excited, because this is a much needed vacation! We're going to be heading up to Laughlin till saturday morning, and then from there we'll be driving into Las Vegas to visit Deak's brother Mickey and his family. We both can't wait to get away, and very excited to spend some time with Mickey's family. So until next week.....

12 weeks down.... :)

Well, life has definatly been a new experience lately for both Deak and me. I still get blown away everytime the thought of being a mom comes to mind, It's so weird because it's the one thing I've always wanted to do, and now that it's happening I never thought about all the emotions and feelings that are involved with it. It's incredibly scary, exciting, overwhelming, exhausting, nauseating(not that i have any choice in this one) and just plain craziest thing ever!! And Deak is lovingly putting up with all of this....

So today we had our first ultrasound, and we both were totally excited going into it. I was especially excited because I have been sooo sick, I needed something to keep me excited, and to help me realize that there is a point to all this!

Going into our appointment, from our 1st visit with Dr. Faulk I though I was just over 10 weeks, only come to find that I am 12 weeks!! I was sooo excited to hear that, because hopefully that means the nausea will end sooner! And it also puts my due date to mid March rather then the 1sto f April, which is nice as well! But aside from that, lol, the baby is healthy, and just over 2inches long! It was so fun to hear the little heart beat, and a few times the tech would push really hard and the baby would do a little dance! It was so cute! Words just can't express how amazing it is to see this little baby, and know that it's growing inside me. It truly was an amazing experience, and Deak and I cannot wait to be parents!

Definatly Unexpected.....

Well, for all you that haven't heard, I'M PREGNANT!! But trust me, I wasn't always excited about it. We were planning to wait about 2-3 years so I could get into nursing school and finish it before we started settling down and starting our family. So I definatly was in shock at first when I saw those 2 little pink lines show up. But Deak on the other hand, was SOOO excited! And seeing him so excited, as the time as passed, has gotten me very excited as well!! We found out July 24th, Deak's Birthday (What a wonderful birthday present eh??), and I'll be due around the first of April 2010.

Deaks Early Birthday

So I know Deak's birthday isn't until the 24th, but I figured that since he is a Baker aka baseball FREAK, that I would get some tickets to a Diamondbacks game. Since we've been together diamondback games are one thing we really come to enjoy doing together, especially since I've had Deak sitting next to me explaining every detail and rule that comes into play, that and just the fact that he's sitting next to me! :)

So this is the view from our seats. I definatly paid a little more then we normally do when we go to the games, but I figured what the heck since it was his birthday present. The last game we went to I kept noticing all the foul balls kept going up to this one section on the 2nd floor, so I thought it might be fun to sit up here... and I'm so glad we did!!!

So I have to say, probably my favorite part about baseball games aside from yelling out stupid things at the top of my lungs, is the food! And I was so excited this time, because I had made up my mind ahead of time that I was going to get nachos this game, which is a special treat because they are freaking $5.75.... and definatly not worth it! But anyways! So, in the bottom of the 1st inning, I left Deak watching the game, and I decided to make my way to the concessions before the game got too interesting- and of course I picked the totally wrong line, because I was behind the one guy that wanted 1 of everything on the menu! But finally, I got my nachos and headed back to our seats. So as I got up to our seats, I was kinda surprised to see a couple of the people sitting around us noticing me, laughing and looking over at Deak. And let me tell you, I was even more surprised when all of a sudden I saw Deak hold up a ball and smile..... He had caught a foul ball!! and I miss it for really bad, over priced nachos.......

So aside from the dissappointment of missing him catch the ball, it was still exciting because the night we were there, there was only one foul ball in our section, AND DEAK GOT IT!! :) Definatly made me feel good, since it was his birthday n all!!

I do have to say this was by far the most exciting, fun game we've been too yet, and it definatly helped that the Diamondbacks kicked the marlins butts- 5 to 1!! Woop Woop!!

Well, I figured that I would finally get this thing up and going like I've told everyone I would! We have been married for 2 months now, TODAY! Can you believe it?? Time has gone by so quickly, but things have never been better!!

So now thing's are going to start slowing down a bit, I hope! We were fortunate enough to have 2 seperate receptions, that turned out beautiful!! We had our first on May 30, in Mom and Dad Hale's backyard in Gilbert, and then we just recently had our 2nd one on June 27th at the Heritage Hall in Snowflake.

We were able to have the majority of our family in town, which was especially nice for Mom Baker, she'll be greatful to finally get the dog off her wall! haha However, we did miss the Jonthan and Christina Hale family from back in Missouri!

We were finally able to get our wedding formals back yesterday, and I am very excited to say that they turned out beautiful! I've been stressing for the past couple weeks that they were going to be hideous, and was so relieved when we got them!! Thank you Brian and Cami, you guys are awesome!!
