Good news!

So, right after I finished my last post, Matt came home from making some visits for his calling and guess what?!  He got to feel Ian kick!!!  He was able to feel Ian moving and kicking for a while.  So exciting!  I loved the look on Matt's face!  Hahaha!  Anyways, just had to share!

Right On Schedule

We had the big ultrasound today and we are SO excited to announce that we are having a LITTLE BOY!!!!!  It was so fun to see him moving around and how much he's filled out since our first ultrasound.  He has such a cute little face!  He was curled up in a ball during the ultrasound (though he was moving).  We have a picture of our cute baby and you can see his feet up close to his face.  It was so adorable!  And no, I'm not biased.  ;)

Our due date is still right on schedule for October 12th and we just can't wait for little Ian Matthew Schmoldt to be here.  His little body is developing properly and everything was looking great.  We are so blessed!  We're going to put up pics of the ultrasound and my belly as soon as possible, so you'll be able to see our cute little baby.

After our ultrasound, Matt and I went to a baby store in Logan called Stork Landing.  It was so fun to start thinking about what we wanted to get for our baby and to look at baby clothes.  Just thinking about this precious life that will soon enter our lives, I feel so blessed and excited for this experience.  

Ian has started kicking harder and it probably won't be long before Matt can feel it.  I'm so excited to share that experience with Matt.  I know it's been incredible for me to be able to feel our baby move, and so I'm very excited for Matt to get that chance.  I already love our little boy and I'm so excited for him to be here!

And So It Begins

Hey everyone!!  So, I decided it was time to jump on the bandwagon of blogging and start our own family page.  I think it will be the easiest way to share the new goings on in our lives.  

Matt's and my first anniversary is coming up in a little over a week and we are super excited!!  We can hardly believe it's been that long.  Time really flies!  In the past year, we've lived in three different homes, nine months of which we spent in North Ogden, UT watching over our grandparents' home while they were serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  While we lived there, Matt worked with our uncle, Monty, and I worked at a daycare for three months.  We learned SO much while we lived there, but we're grateful to be back in good old Logan now.

On top of all that fun stuff, we're going to have a baby on October 12th!  We are SOOOO excited for this little one to come into our lives and the new adventures it will bring.  We find out on May 26th what Baby Schmoldt's gender is.  Does anyone have any guesses?  Whatever it will be, we will be perfectly happy.  We think both boys and girls are fun in their own ways, and we'd love to have either one!  A healthy baby is all we hope for.

For the past week and a half, I've been feeling the baby move and kick.  That has been SO exciting!!!  Everything has seemed kind of surreal up to this point, but feeling the baby move has made it very real for me.  I'm getting so excited for this baby to come!

As new things happen, I will try to write about them and keep you posted.  Love you all!!
