It's a....

BOY!!!!!!! I am SO excited that I found out it's a BOY!!! I am beyond happy. I knew my whole life that I was going to have a boy someday. I have always had a desire to have a boy first and I am being blessed with that coming to a reality! At the ultrasound yesterday, I was laying there on the table... freaking out that they were going to tell me it was a girl and I would have felt very different. I know it would still have been awesome if we were going to have a girl... but when they said it was a boy, I couldn't stop laughing I was so happy. Jordan just looked proud. Like he accomplished a trying task successfully. haha... he was certain it was going to be a girl and I was on my way to thinking that we would have a girl just because we wanted a boy so badly. Now, I am taking any advice that other moms have to give. It just seems more real to me now that I could see the little man in there moving around and feel him kicking. I just want to be the best mom I can be... But while also being the best wife I can be. I don't want to put Jordan and my relationship on the back-burner while all of this excitement is going on. It should still be Jordan first, baby second, everything else next... Well actually more like, God first, Jordan second, baby third, and everything else next. :) I have gotten some great advice from some great people in my life already and am open to more! I would love to hear feedback from other moms about what things they couldn't live without when it comes to raising a baby... and what techniques they find work for bringing up a baby in the training and instruction of the Lord. That's my main goal... I want my kids to know Jesus' love and grasp it. I want them to see Jesus in me and Jordan also. I just pray all day long that my little boy will be healthy, happy, and comforted by the love of Christ through us. That's really all I can hope for.

A little pregnancy update!

This would be my sister and me... about a week apart! :) SO FUN!

This is a little question thing I found on Katie's blog...

How far along? 17 weeks 5 days
Total weight gain: not sure... 5-8 lbs. it varies
Maternity clothes? I have bought a few things recently. maternity jeans are a must now. Can't wear my old ones!
Stretch marks? nope! Using Cocobutter so hopefully I wont have any!
Sleep: fine. been sick recently though so the coughing and runny nose wakes me up.
Best moment this week: The fact that it's Spring Break! No School!
Miss Anything? I do want a frosty glass of beer some days. I miss Jordan when he's at work. :)
Movement: hmm.. not sure yet. I have felt a couple little flutters here and there. Could be the baby!
Food cravings: Not really... Just anything, everything... salty foods. not so much sweets.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, haven't been sick once! Praise God!
Gender: I find out on TUESDAY!!!!!
Labor Signs: NO!
Symptoms: Very sore back, sore tummy ( I can feel it stretching), and I cry about EVERYTHING!
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on... I don't get this question though.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I'd say happy... then I'll get sentimental and cry. not really crabby.
Looking forward to:TUESDAY when I find out if it's a little girl or a little BOY!!!! :)

Been a long time.

I used to update this blog daily, then weekly, then monthly.. and it's been since JUNE or JULY since I last updated! I guess my life hasn't really been all that interesting lately. The only news I can really think of is... Oh yeah.. I'm PREGNANT! Jordan and I were going to start trying around April, but God surprised us with a few months sooner! I find out on Tuesday what I am going to be having. I am due in August and still trying to get used to the idea of being when the baby comes I don't know what's going to happen! I do know that I am not going to go back to work. That is what I do know. I'm hoping and praying that Jordan will have a firefighting job by then (which I'll touch on in a minute) because if not, I'm going to have to do nannying or something to help out. I will definitely not leave my little baby in a daycare somewhere. The pay I get paid as an assistant teacher would be about the same as paying someone to watch her every month... so.. not worth it to me. We have been thinking about names and such lately too. Boy names I'm pretty sure we've narrowed down to one. Joseph Jackson Davila. Maybe call him Jackson or Joe. I don't know yet. Jordan's brother's name is Joseph and his uncle is Joe and his Grandpa was Jose, but called Joe... my mom's dad was Joe. I don't know, starting to just lean towards Joe. :) Little baby Joe. If It's a girl, we have talked about so many different names. Mackenzie, Paige, Presley, Reagan... I am leaning towards Presley still lately. I really like it. Trying not to get too attached to one or the other yet though, since I still don't know what it is.

SO... the JOB situation on Jordan's end. Well, he put a hold on work in the fall and went to school full-time to get his TCFP Firefighter Cert. He completed that, graduated.. and has been pretty much working three jobs since then. He started back at Discount Tire, Volunteers at Leander Fire Department, and is constantly applying for firefighting jobs. His downtime is paperwork and interviews and tests. I just pray he finds something soon. He is the hardest worker ever and deserves something amazing. It's tough to watch him be so tired all of the time. Working 12 hour days is rough. Sometimes, he works 12 hours, then goes to volunteer a 24 hour shift at the station and goes strait back to work 12 hours when his shift ends. It's just non-stop.

We are going to be celebrating our YEAR anniversary April 21, and have decided to take a little weekend trip down to New Orleans. He deserves a break. We are going to be staying in the Omni, thanks to Joe, just a block away from the French Quarter! Jordan and I thought we should go somewhere with a lot of delicious food. We were watching the travel channel and a show came on about New Orleans and we are both in love with spicy seafood... so... sold! I really can't wait. Jazz music, good food, relaxation.. perfect!

Well, this first year of marriage has been awesome. It's seriously such a blessing to live with my best friend and see him every day. I couldn't ask for a better husband. God really knew what he was doing when he put us together again. I am glad to be put with someone who understands me and puts up with me. I love it.

Oh, and I went to see Radiohead the other day. It was awesome. Other than the fact that we realized as we were there how much influence someone in Thom Yorke's kind of position has. It's actually depressing to know that someone with such a HUGE audience is feeding everyone there lies. His music is good... and whatever... but I was just hit with such an overwhelming feeling of sadness for everyone there. Everyone who doesn't know the truth. Our lives aren't a miserable helpless wreck, and yes we do need Jesus. Something he said in one of his songs... Jesus, do we really need him? Or something like that... and It's just... a subliminal way to misguide everyone there. I don't know...anyways... deep thoughts.
