Shedd Aquarium

September 26th, 2009 . by Melissa

In August, we made a trip to the temple with the Taylor’s and then headed to the aquarium in Chicago. The Taylor’s had actually never been inside the city, so they got to experience a little bit of downtown Chi-Town.

A Newman Update

September 20th, 2009 . by Melissa

I know…we suck at blogging these days. All is well in the Newman household…no news is good news!

Here are a few updates:

They thought I had gestational diabetes and so I underwent a 3 hour glucose tolerance test…the result: I am 100% healthy.

I started a cake decorating class. Jack Jack will have the best Thomas the Tank Engine Cake ever.

I began my new position as Event Coordinator at the Military Family Research Institute.

We bought Jack Jack a crib and it has already been delivered and assembled. Thank you for your votes! We went with option A because option B did not have a matching changer or dresser.

We finally bought plane tickets to Utah! We are going for Jason’s fall break in just a few short weeks.

The nursery is almost finished being painted.

Today was our last Sunday to teach our 11 years olds :(. They have all graduated and gone on to Young Mens now.

Jason passed the QE with flying colors! I am so proud of him.

That’s all for now! I hope to post some belly and nursery pics in a few days!
