Can you tell I'm pregnant?

This is me at 15 weeks (one week ago). I had a funny experience at school about a month ago. Before I told my students that I was pregnant, I felt like I was starting to show a little (around 11 weeks). I had a student in one of my classes tell me that I looked pregnant in front of the whole class. I was embarrassed because I realized I was definitely starting to show, and she was embarrassed because she thought she had really offended me and that I wasn't pregnant. Poor dear. At least she'll be more tactful in the future. I told all of the students about a week later that I was, in fact, pregnant.
I realized my last post was kind of negative about being pregnant, so I better let everyone know that we're very happy and excited about this new little one in our life! Everyone seems to think it's a boy, including Trevor and me...but can you really be sure? We'll find out in about a month. I'm really looking forward to feeling the baby move. Sometimes I just need the assurance that he/she is still alive in there.

Long Time No Post

With so much to share, I'm sorry I haven't updated our blog lately. Let's be honest though- I've been busy! Sometimes it's hard to find time to blog. :)
Our latest new is...I'm pregnant! We're expecting a baby on May 28th of next year. I think the pregnancy is actually a big reason why I haven't had time to blog lately: pregnancy can sure make you sick and tired! When I come home at the end of the day, I usually just want to sleep. Right now I'm trying to do more than I probably should on top of teaching middle school. My plan is to stop taking my current evening class so I have a little more time and energy for the things I want to do come January.
We had a great Thanksgiving break in Trevor's hometown of Oakley, Idaho (Good food, good people, and a lot of sleeping in). We are so excited for Christmas break! So many things to look forward to- Trevor's birthday (December 24th), Christmas (of course), and our first anniversary (December 29th)! Any anniversary suggestions? We want to do something special but we're not super creative. Let us know if you have any ideas. I'm also excited to be little Suzy homemaker and bake holiday-shaped sugar cookies for our neighbors.
I hope to post again before Christmas, but since my record isn't so good, I'll just wish you all a Merry Christmas right away! Thanks for your love and friendship, and may your holidays be joyful and relaxing.
