Here We Go Again!

Volleyball season officially started this month! I love volleyball season-I don't like the lonely weekends when Reed travels, but I love home games! It's so fun to get to see Reed play (especially because he does it so well!) and I love all the friends that we've made through the team. Home games are definitely the highlight of my weekends!

This weekend the team started conference play against Hawaii. Reed didn't play as much as we had hoped, but he played awesome when he was in. Reed's serving in particular has improved so much from last year! BYU won in 4 on Thursday night and in 3 on Friday night. We love when the team wins in 3 games because then it's still early enough that the good restaurants are still open!

Last weekend BYU played Cal Baptist Thursday night and Lewis Saturday night. BYU easily won the first 2 games against Cal Baptist and we were sure we had this one in the bag. But we didn't. We actually ended up losing in 5 games. It was pretty disappointing. But they came back on Saturday and beat Lewis in 4.

This upcoming weekend the team travels to play at UC Santa Barbara and really should leave with 2 wins. So hopefully they will!

They Grow Up So Fast!

So one of the perks of working at a docter's office when I'm pregnant is that I've become good friends with our ultrasound tech (and I get to see my dr most days of the week!). So she'll look at my baby whenever she has an opening in her schedule! That's right, I'm only 11 weeks along and I've had 2 ultrasounds so far! So here's my first ultrasound at 7 weeks (about a week after we found out):

It was so cool to get to see the little peanut and to be able to see it's little heart beat! And here's from my ultrasound today:

Sorry it's a little hard to see, but that's the head and the top of the belly-it's the cutest baby I've ever seen! It's so exciting that it actually looks like a baby now! Our little friend wasn't moving much, but it did kinda "jump" once or twice for us. Too bad we still have 29 more weeks to go...sigh.

I'm So Far Behind...

So here's my best effort to get caught up without being too boring or too long.

Reed and I went to California to spend Christmas with my family. It was fun to be there with the fam and to be away from all the snow! But apparently we missed it a little and went to Mt Baldy...

We got our new PJs from Grandma Johansson on Christmas Eve

Christmas morning we surprised my family when they opened the 2009 family calendar and saw Baby Chilton's due date on August 4th! Then we got some good, quality Wii time-thanks Chiltons!

Mom loved boxing Ryne!

We were so glad we were able to see the fam and that Grandma and Grandpa Tibbitts were also able to spend Christmas with us. Thanks mom and dad for a great Christmas break!

And here's my new favorite picture...

This is the 2009 Men's Volleyball magnet/poster. So if you're up on BYU campus you'll probably get to see Reed's face everywhere! The 2009 theme is "Protect the House" and the season is underway! The team competed this weekend in Santa Barbara in the Elephant Bar Tournament. They had a rough day Friday, but pulled off a win against Pacific in 3 on Saturday. I'm so excited for their first home games this weekend (Thursday at 7 against Cal Baptist and Saturday at 7 vs Lewis)! So everyone head over to the Smith Fieldhouse and support the Cougars!
