Things are falling into place a lot quicker than expected. Still lots to do though! Our living room is pretty much set up! Gabe's room is probably the most put together. We got Sofia's crib up!! Our kitchen is mostly organized and our bedroom is looking like a bedroom. Andy even planted a potted garden on our back porch! It's all very exciting! Pictures will be coming soon!
We have had some problems with noisy upstairs neighbors. They like loud music and video games. After talking to them and several bangs on the ceiling we called the police. They have never been quieter. I hope it lasts!
Andy started his new job today! What a relief! Things are finally working out for us. So excited for the future! Just 4 more weeks until Sofia comes, although I'm really hoping she'll cone this weekend when I hit the big 3-7 week mark. That us if we can get our place in order by then.
Whelp! Time to lay down until the Goob wakes up. (he'll probably wake up as soon as I lie down.)
Have a great day world!

I wish videos like these came out sooner. I wish those who have and do struggle with same gender attraction could see that they have always been precious in the eyes of God. That they are not condemned to hell. This new campaign teaches that we do love unconditionally. I hope we can help people open their minds and really learn where we are supposed to stand on this subject. I hope that people will take the time to do the research, talk to their local leaders, and learn to love as Christ loves.
Here's the one from BYU students.

As for our little family, we are one big happy hormonal wreck. The pregnancy is almost over and we are all elated!! We are so excited to meet Sofia (and to not be pregnant anymore)! We all had a wonderful Easter and are looking forward to more holidays together. I am so excited to start our own traditions.
As for Gabe, he took his first step and has since decided to not repeat this epic event. He is standing on his own more and more though! I just hope he's walking before Sofia comes. He's also quite the talker when it comes to gibberish. He seems very interested in learning new sounds right now. He is LOVING his ABC books. He watches the reader's mouth very intently and the tries out some of the sounds. It's so wonderful watching him grow and learn. I am very glad for his interest in books. He'll sit and read with me or Andy for as long as we can stand it. :) There's no point in putting his books on his shelf either. He just pulls them all off first thing in the morning. But who needs a clean house when you have a happy baby?
That's our update! Maybe I'll post more now that I have this app. Don't get your hopes up though!

Everything is going great in Draper land! Andy is adjusting well to school and I am adjusting well to having a ton of energy! It's been really nice to get some of my projects completed! We've recently started with all the rearranging that needs to be done before baby Gabe comes! Here's a sneak peak at just one finished project.
We love plants! We will be taking pictures throughout our rearranging process and then I'll post before/after pictures. There's still A LOT to be done! Like switching where the piano is to where our love seat currently is. I wish I could do this on my own but alas I must wait for big strong men to help. In the meantime I will be moving pictures all around so that our baby's room doesn't look like an office anymore. :)
Here are the sewing projects I've recently completed! Sewing has been great because I can do it on days I don't have a lot of energy.
Horray for burp cloths! I've finished two and have just four more to go for now.
