WOW, it is weird that I am half way there to meeting our little man, people weren't kidding when they said it would go super fast! It has been fun and very enlightening. I feel great (most the time, mostly the not so great times is when I'm trying to sleep).
The biggest question people are asking lately is, 'Have you thought of any names?'...Have I? Of course I have, I think of names ALL the time, it is actually driving me nuts, I didn't realize naming a person would be so difficult! We do have a small list formulating for now, but i'm sure it will change so I am not going to share it yet. I can guarantee that he won't have a name until he is out and screaming his head off, that will be the moment that I know just what to call him :) or at least shortly after, but I promise we won't leave the hospital with just a 'Baby Boy Tieman'
We have been working on what the Nursery is going to look like, we've decided to take advantage of my energy and willingness to work now, so we will be painting shortly. Coming up with a color scheme was pretty difficult, but what do you know, it's mostly GREEN! I will definitely post pictures when we are done.
The little guy is doing great, still growing and moving more every day. Everytime we go to an appointment, they tell me the same thing, 'He is SO active!' trust me people I know, I can feel him moving around like crazy. I'm hoping this is a trend he will discontinue after birth......
Jared and I are doing well, he is fully engaged in his schooling again, so our schedules are wacky once more. We are definitely keeping busy and don't get to see each other nearly as much as we'd like, but it is nice to be busy when you are making progress toward goals we've had for sometime. I'm sure when his schooling is over, we'll look back at it like everything else, thinking it went by so fast!
That is it for now everyone, I'll be sure to post again when something exciting happens!!

Popcorn Popping

Yes that is the best way to describe this little acrobat inside me....The first little movements I felt reminded me of popcorn popping in the microwave. They are getting stronger and come more often, he is definitely a super active little guy. It is the coolest thing people! I can't wait for Jared to get to feel this little man kicking away!
Sometimes I'll be sitting at my desk at work and I'll start cracking up when he starts at it. I don't know why, I just think it's the neatest, weirdest thing and it makes me laugh. People are beginning to think i'm crazy i'm sure. I don't care, I am enjoying every second of this pregnancy, even the hairy belly and crazy back aches!!

This is for all you Surprisians! I found this yummy self serve frozen yogurt place, and now I'm hooked!! You go in, grab a bowl and fill it up with as much (or little....yah right) of all sorts of yogurt flavors and then put all the toppings you want on top....including Ghirardelli chocolate syrup! They charge you by the ounce, Jared and I each got a bowl for about 4 bucks. I had Death by Chocolate frozen yogurt with brownie chunks and lots of choc. syrup!!! HEAVEN! It is right by the Fry's Marketplace on Greenway Road and Cotton Lane.....only 2 miles from my house :)

It's a.......

BOY!!!! We found out on took a while tho, cuz the little stinker wasn't cooperating, but we finally got him to move and got a few good shots. Jared was just beaming when we left the office. It was awesome to find out and great that we got the ultrasound....our first one was at 7 weeks, so there wasn't much to see.
I feel pretty great, actually I've been extremely blessed during this pregnancy. I didn't have any morning sickness, and the crazy fatigue is pretty much all gone now. We couldn't be more excited to be parents and feel so blessed that we have this little guy on the way. Now if I could only think of names....... By the way Mom, I posted more pics on my facebook, the ultrasound tech was awesome and took a million, just for you :)
