Beck's heartbeat

My blood pressure has been slightly elevated 145/85 so I've been monitoring it at home. Yup still the same.  While I had my stethoscope out I remembered that some times you can hear a baby's heartbeat with them near the end of a pregnancy. So Jeff and and I tried it. was faint but we found Beck's quick little cool! I think I will try to see if the kids can hear it tomorrow!

Defense is over!!!

Jeff did really well,  all of his committee member signed him off, with the condition that that Jeff publish his papers and make some revisions! So as of right now,  we are headed to Utah as scheduled!!! Phone calls to family will come when you are all at home later tonight!


The defense has begun!!!

Here is Jeff addressing a question from his professor. So far he is doing well, staying calm and collected with his responses!  I don't understand the questions but my bagel and OJ from Panera Bread are really good!

Last Hours

Today is Jeff's last day before his defense, in 26 hours it will begin... :) in 28 hours it will be over, and then we'll know what needs to be done in order to wrap everything up. :) I feel so calm, which is the exact opposite of Jeff right now.... in this circumstance, mom's really do have the easy part!

Random thoughts for this afternoon....

Can I say that I think our family is really starting to call this state home. It was different this time to go and visit Utah and see all the changes our hometown has gone through over 5 years... and those changes just make it feel so different. When we get to our neighborhoods, it feels a little bit more like home especially for me since my parents are still in the house that I lived in, but for Jeff he only spent 7 months in his parents home before getting married. For me, these feelings are good because it lets me feel like my home really is where my husband and children are.  This is where we have spent the bulk of our marriage so far, and we have so many happy memories.
