Baby Olivia

Baby Olivia Hill finally made her arrival into the world on Oct 18, 2012 at 6:49 pm. She could not be more cute and precious. We are loving every minute with her and getting used to the idea of being parents. And man is that an adjustment! I will post about her birth etc later, but for now, its time for some pics! I may be a bit biased but I think she is pretty stinkin cute!
Only an hour old and she is already bright eyed!
She has already mastered holding her pacifier at 2 hours old. Smart girl. :D
Sporting a hat that her Aunt Toriann made her.
Chillin on mom and dad's bed while they get ready.
Oh hey, you talkin to me??
Meeting Great Grandpa for the first time.
Talking a nap in the car seat.
My first Halloween costume, nothing too fancy
Napping on Grandpa's chest
Already 4 weeks old! Where has the time gone?!

Still here......

My mom keeps telling me that the only way she knows what is going on in my life is through my blog. I informed her that our life is pretty boring at the moment and with not having the internet at our house I cant really blog a whole lot. I am still pregnant, 32 weeks and counting. For the most part pregnancy has not been horrible. I was lucky and never had morning sickness, I have only thrown up once the whole time and I think that was due to some bad food. I have been lucky enough to experience the joys of heartburn, oh man I hate that! Especially when it wakes me up at 2 am. But compared to some of my friends who have been sick the entire 9 months I consider myself lucky. The heat has NOT been my friend and I can not wait until it finally starts to cool off. I havent spent much time outside this summer, just going from place to place that is air conditioned. I have started to get the swelling in my hands and feet and putting on regular shoes has become a bit of a challenge some days. If only we were allowed to go bare foot everywhere. :D Andrew is still working hard and counting down the days till we get to meet our princess. Some days I am not sure who is more excited for her, me or him. I can not wait to see the look on his face when he gets to hold her for the first time. It is something that I have been waiting for since we first got married. He is going to be a great daddy! Other than that our life is the same, slowly starting to acquire all of the things that the little one will need and enjoying these last few months as just the two of us.

Well life at the Hill Home has changed a bit these past couple months. If you haven't noticed the side bar pic, we are adding to our little family!!! Baby hill is due mid October. The Doctor is still unsure of my final due date, I have heard 3 different ones so far, all within a week of eachother, so hopefully one day soon we will have a real date. We could not be more thrilled. We have been trying for a baby for almost a year and a half so we consider this to be a true blessing. When people ask if we want a boy or girl, I of course want a sweet little girl so I can dress her up and spoil her rotten. Andrew wants a boy to play with and teach him all about sports. Really when it comes down to it we want a healthy baby and would be happy for either. So for awhile now I have debated about going back to school to get a Master's in Social Work. My husband talked me into to applying to a few schools. That took some time, but I was able to complete them all and then played the waiting game. My hope was to get into a school in Utah, but the only one that I was able to apply to didnt want me, so that was a no go. I applied to two other schools outside of Utah, one fairly close, the other on the East Coast. Well last week I got a letter from the school on the East Coast. It was a thin envelope and when I took it out of the mailbox I knew exactly what it was going to say and I had no intention of openining it. I didnt want to face getting a rejection letter at the moment. Andrew came home from work, say the envelope and immediatly ripped it open. I told him I knew what it said and I didnt want to see it. He started reading the letter and I was TOTALLY SHOCKED!!! I got ACCEPTED! To the University of South Carolina!!! Oh my! I was totally taken back but so happy at the same time. Andrew was thrilled because that ment we would be able to leave Utah, something he has talked about since I met him. Because of being pregnant and my due date I dont know for sure what we are going to do. That is far away from any family and familiarity and I dont know if I can start school and have a baby in the first semester and get used to a completely new environment. I am still waiting to hear back from the other school, UNLV, before we make a final decision. I am hoping to be able to defer for a semester and then start in January, but who knows if that is even a possiblity. So that is our life as of late, we went from boring to multiple things happening but we could not be more excited for these new changes to occur. * I have tried to upload a pic of the baby that we had done at 11 weeks, but I am having some issues.... for now, I will just post a link to facebook. :D!/photo.php?fbid=609863373781&set=a.570926942701.2063254.203002979&type=3&theater

Still here

So for those of you who check my blog, I promise that we are still alive, I just havent been able to post in a while. We moved at the end of September and decided to save money and not get internet. It was both a good and bad decision.
Nothing much has been going on at the Hill house, lots of work, a few small trips, and some play thrown in when we have some time and energy. I have at least a good 400 plus pictures to upload, maybe one day soon I will be able to do that.
For now we are waiting for spring and cant wait to enjoy the sun!
Until next time......
