i have been remiss in announcing some big news on the blog. in my mind, i already had posted on the subject. reagan is going to have to eventually learn to share as i am great with child. i am due july 6th. this picture is not of our baby, but it is a baby at 13 weeks, which is how far along i am.
for christmas, my parents gave the whole fam damily, sans missionaries, a trip to cancun. the first two days were so much fun. we traveled easily to mexico, (which is a major accomplishment for us) and the weather was beautiful. our hotel room had an incredible view and 2 separate balconies. it was paradise. but, as the saying goes, there is often trouble in paradise....
by day 3 thomas and i had both contracted montezuma's revenge and were lying helplessly in our bed. we remained there for the rest of the trip. there was no more shopping, eating, siteseeing or anything. i can't believe i was too sick to buy silver or see chichen itza or buy REAL VANILLA! santa vaca! we are still not sure how it happened. we were SO careful about only eating and drinking at our hotel. surely we must have mortally offended someone in mexico to deserve this punishment. to get through the torture of the illness we joked that we were living the rockstar lifestyle; lying in bed all day in a trashed hotel room popping pills.
i lost about 5 pounds in one night and thomas probably lost just as much. i went to the doctor yesterday to check on baby and it looks like she(reverse psychology or wishful thinking?) is going to be okay too. and georgia beat virginia tech. blessings through trials.
the healthy, happy couple
three days later...
this is our recovery shot. we were both barely able to stand up. my hair really was clean, you just can't tell. thomas still looks great and he was a great helper to me even when he felt terrible. he rode the 3:30am bus into town to find medicine. my hero.
here are two of my brothers about to "rescue me". apparently i was drowning and i needed to be thrown back in the water.
the whole family. nice socks, dave.
the view from our balconey.
do you see the full moon over mexico?
