I had a moment of Panic. Around 1:00 yesterday I got a call from my aunt. The conversation went like this. . .

Aunt: Hey Nicole, what are you doing right NOW?

Me: Nothing much, just finishing up a quilt.

Aunt: Oh. Well shouldn't you be headed up to pick up the baby?

Me: What?

Aunt: I just got a text saying, the baby has arrived!

Me: Hum, I didn't get a call, she had the baby?!?

Aunt: Let me call and see, I'll call you back ASAP.

3 minuets later. . .


Aunt: Nicole I'm so sorry, It was actually a text from a lady I know, her daughter just had a baby.

Just a little bit of panic. I think it was a little message from God reminding me that at anytime Steve and I could get that all important call and I need to be ready when it comes. So last night Steve and I went out and bought a few more outfits. Little baby clothes just make me smile.

11 days and counting.

The forever quilt is finally finished. I was glad I was able to see my parents and drop off this quilt. Hope you love it dad!

A fun getaway

This past week I able to go up and meet K. It was such a great week. I only spent a day with K., but was also able to meet her family, visit with my aunt and on a long layover in Utah, see my parents, my little brother and his girlfriend. Really the week could have not been any better, okay maybe if Steve was able to go.

I also was able to see the first pictures of that baby and it's all boy!
Steve and I are just so excited. The day we found out it was a boy was on Tuesday the 20th. I was getting off the airplane in Utah. I turned on my phone and saw that I had a text. I opened the text and it read, "Its a boy." I was so excited that i didn't even wait to get off the plane to call Steven. All Steve could say was, "Cool, I'm going to the store to buy him boy things." Power tools, footballs and monster trucks here we come.

No news is ALWAYS good news

First the adoption is going great! K. had an appointment on Tuesday and the doctor said that everything is going well. Her due date was pushed back to May 19th and an ultrasound was scheduled for the 21st. We still do not know the sex.

As for the doctors appointment next week I am super excited. I will be going up to visit K. and she asked me if i would like to go to the ultrasound with her. I am SO excited! I really cannot stop smiling. I feel so blessed. Thank you for all your love and support.
And just so you all can have as big of smile as me. . .

Today outside my window. . it is dark. It's getting late, but today was a beautiful day. It was close to 80 degrees with a little bit of wind.

I am thinking about. . . Clinical tomorrow. I've got a bit of a cold and am wondering how I am going to manage being on my feet all day.

I am thankful for. . .my mom. She supports me more then she will ever know.

I am reading. . .my clinical nursing book. Monday is the next test and I feel like i am a little behind in the studying.

I am hearing. . .Steve playing final fantasy in the front room. I really dislike the music on that game, its sounds whinny.

A few plans for the rest of the week. . .I have a bit to do this week. I have a nutrition paper to write, clinicals, a quilt for my dad to work on, and more studying for the next test.
