In case you were wondering...

So, our ultrasound appointment yesterday was the bommmmbbb!! :) We found out that on May 8, 2009 (or somewhere around there) little Avery Nicole Bradford will be joining our fam!! WE. ARE. PUMPED. It was superrrr cool to watch her squirm around on the screen. She was alllll curled up for most of the time, but we finally got her to start moving around. She even gave us a big, ADORABLE yawn :) Ahhhh, I'm in love. I wish we caught her yawn on the camera, but we didn't quite make it. Time to start thinking "bAby RoOm!!" I was actually telling Brian last night that, as selfish as it is, the baby thing I'm MOST excited about getting is a jogging stroller so Avery and I can go outside, be happy, & play in the sun together!

In other news, I finished my Patho class today. Took the final. Donesky. Awesome. OH- and I don't know if I have shared this news with the blog world, but I will no longer be attending nursing school in January. I have come to realize over the last couple of months that as excited as I was about nursing SCHOOL, a nursing career is not something I want for my life. Plus, I absolutely loovvvve my current job, and am ecstatic about having more time to give to it (until Avery comes along). Brian and I talked about it quite a bit, prayed about it, lots of things went into it, and for now- this is the conclusion we came to, and we both feel GREAT, happy, and super peaceful... can't beat that peaceful easy feeling :)
Brian's company, Pfizer, is having a giant restructuring and layoff in January. They'll let everyone know their fate at the beginning of the month and any changes will take effect in March. Keep us in your prayers, as we know we have NO control over the company's decisions! We're not worried, but we know that some big changes could be in store for us, and we just pray that God is preparing us in every way for whatever is to come!
