Framing Pictures and Predictions

Hello again! Since I hadn't posted in 3 weeks, I decided 2 posts within a couple of days was in order! Yesterday, Ann, mother of by OBU friend Kelly, made her official prediction on the gender of our baby (she worked in an ob-gyn's office for a while): she predicts a girl! I hear, she's pretty accurate.. :)
We went by the house today to take some pictures of the inside, and knew some of you wanted to see them, so here they are!

View from the top of the stairs: loft and bedrooms

So much change...

I just realized it's been 3 weeks since I last posted! WOW, the time has flown by! :)

Change #1: I have officially graduated from physical therapy school, and you can all feel free to call me doctor! Here are some pictures from the day (you can click on them to make them bigger)

William and I at graduation (he cheated by standing on the step!) :)

Me, Laura, and Kassie on graduation day! Oh, and by the way, I cut 14 inches of hair off!

Change #2: My tummy seems like it's getting bigger every day! We went back to the doctor on the 15th and got to hear the heartbeat for the first time. It was very fast- 167 beats per minute! Some people say that means we're getting a girl! We'll find out for "sure" hopefully on June 16th. Here's my best attempt at a belly shot taken at 15 weeks, 5 days:

It's getting there! I'm definitely wearing maternity pants and tanktops, and from the look of this picture I should retire that t-shirt to the "pre-pregnancy" pile as well!

Change #3: Our house building has begun! On the 15th, our friends Kelly and Andy called to tell us that they had poured the driveway and foundation and then on the 19th, they started the framing. Here's some pictures:

Moving is such a hassle...

So I'm sitting in the floor of our new apartment in Noblesville, IN writing this post... waiting for William and Kenny and the moving truck to show up... while maintenance guys install our new sink in the bathroom....

I was SUPPOSED to be able to move in yesterday, but due to some staffing changes/maintenance being done on the apartment, today is the day! Cheers to our friends Kelly and Andy for letting me and the cats crash at their place :)

As far as pregnancy goes, every thing's going really well! My tummy is starting to stick out a little, but I don't know if you can tell yet in a picture... I'll see what I can do!

Monday was my last day EVER (well, at least for now.. heh) of school. It was actually a lot more sad than I thought it was going to be. You don't realize how attached you can become to 55 other people over the course of 3 years until it's time to say goodbye to them. See you guys on the 15th! Can't wait to graduate with you!!

By the way, it's DR. Higgins now!
