..Little Behind!

I am a little bit behind on updating! So here is *what I can remember* of what we did in December so far! I usually try to make notes in my phone or on Facebook, but sometimes I forget!! :)) I will try to update more often! I have a doctor appointment on Friday so I will update with heart beat and all that.

Dec 5: I met up with the Roesler's because Kaylee had surgery on her legs. It was the first time seeing them in 14 months. It was awesome being able to catch up and talk again! 

  Dec 6: At my last appointment my pap-smear was abnormal so they are doing test on Friday. Also at my last appointment the heart beat was 160! I'm thinking the baby is a girl, Matt is still saying boy! 

Dec 7: We went to Pizza Ranch for Peyton's 2nd Birthday Party! 

Dec 21-25: We went to the Gniffke's in Wood Lake for Christmas, thinking on Christmas Eve we would be going to the Speiser Christmas. We went to Duffy's for supper on Saturday. However, Sunday we woke up and Matt didn't feel good so we went to urgent care. Influenza and Strep came back negative but the doctor still diagnosed Matt with Influenza so here we are both home for 5 days no work. Doctor highly suggested I didn't have daycare open. 

Dec 24: NICOLE AND CODIE GOT ENGAGED!!!! We are so extremely excited for the both of them! We couldn't be any happier for them!!! They are awesome parents are so in love!

This photo was take on 12/8/12, 11 weeks 2 days!

They say emotions get worse when you get pregnant and they are right. I cry almost everyday, sometimes only for a few minutes others for several of minutes and other times for hour(s). It can be about the littlest things or the biggest things. Here are a FEW of them...

-- It has been 4 months since our wedding -- and I still haven't got over the fact that I lost an amazing family for a year. We just started talking again recently and they were my second mom and dad. Their whole family was suppose to be in the wedding until we got in a fight and we were both to stubborn to talk it out.

-- It has been 4 months since our wedding -- and I am still not satisfied with our photos. The photos we got were amazing, but I wish we would have gotten some individual photos with parents/the bottom for my shoes, and more of Matt and I.

-- It has been 4 months since our wedding -- and it still hurts a lot know my sister and her whole family backed out of our wedding 6 days before. They weren't there to witness the most important day in our life. And I'm not sure I will ever be able to get over this. 

-- It has been 4 months since our wedding -- and as I look at photos I realized how my mom was never in the room with me to get ready. It never hit me until yesterday. I'm having such a hard time with this. But it's things you can't change. 

-- Ellen -- I miss my Aunt Ellen more then I could ever imagine. I have so many questions that I want to ask her about daycare and life. And I just wish I could talk to her one more time. 

Enough crying for tonight hopefully.

MATT AND I got to go to NYC for Thanksgiving! I am so thankful that he was able to come with! On our way to Omaha on Wed. night our car broke down in Sioux Falls. Thankfully God was watching over us and Tires Plus was a huge help and helped us out! We flew into Newark on Thursday(11/22) and my dad picked us up and brought us to my cousin Kay's house! We had Thanksgiving Dinner and just relaxed!! Friday we woke up and took the train(LIRR) into the city! We took a taxi to Rockefeller Center since Matt was not feeling the best. We first hit up Rockefeller Center to go to Top of the Rock. It was a beautiful site to see the skyline of NYC! After that we went to Grand Central Station-had to see it! Then we walked to the UN Building, Matt really liked this stop! We then went to Time Square because it was getting dark, it was awesome to see all the shops lite up! So pretty! Then we did the NBC Studios Tour which was a blast! We had an awesome day! Saturday we were going to go to the World Trade Center Memorial but Matt's fever got worse 103.1F. We tried to get him to go to urgent care but when we got there, there was quite a line and he didn't want to wait. So we started our 6hr drive to PA. 

Sunday we went to Grammy for the afternoon to watch football, take naps, and have a nice family dinner. After dinner we play the famous game of Dutch Blitz! It was so nice to be around family again! Monday we started our 6hr journey back to NJ stopping at Rita's in Belfonte and got to see the whole Purnell family! Monday we went to the mall to see dad at work and ate at The Cheesecake Factory after. It was very good. Tuesday we were suppose to fly out but our flight got cancelled so we had breakfast at IHOP then dad went to work so we just hung out and watched tv all day at the hotel! We then took him for supper at Longhorn Stakehouse. We were able to get on our flight on Wednesday morning and make the long drive home! We were in cars a lot! 

All in all it was a great vacation!

As a lot of you know I have been going through quite a bit with my new daycare and being pregnant....but it seems like as soon as things are looking better they get worse again...tonight was fun, it wasn't relaxing we were on our toes but I went to watch Ashtyn & Brayden (niece and nephew) play basketball, then we ate at Culvers, made a trip to goodwill and ended it at Walmart. It was def. a lot of laughs so that was good. But man I can not wait to be on vacation next week.


This whole being pregnant thing is worst than a period for my emotions. I wish I wasn't so emotional but hey, we are having a baby and that is a gift from God! We are very excited and it's so hard keeping it in! I just want to shout it out! So I'm going to on here! "WE'RE PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!"

..Almost EIGHT weeks!..

We had another untrasound on Thursday, 11/8/12 to try to get a better measure of the heartbeat! Baby Speiser is still so tiny but we got the heartbeat this time! 
 The heart rate is 123bpm
 Look at our tinny baby!
Measuring 7 weeks on Thursday(11/8/12) so my new due date is 6/27/13

I flew to Colorado this past weekend and did really good! I didn't get sick at all so that was awesome! I still have been tired but the morning sickness is going away! My breast are also still very sore and tender but this is only the start so I better get used to it! :)) We are still very excited and can't wait to meet little baby Speiser! :)) God has surly blessed us!!

Denver 2012

I got to go to Denver/Vail this past weekend from 11/9-11/12 to see Trish, Chris, Simon and Danica and met some new friends! We had a blast! I was obviously the DD and it was the first time I have ever enjoyed being a DD! It was so beautiful there, but also cold! These are just a few photos from the trip!

..Baby Coming Soon!..

Well now that most of our close friends know, I can at least BLOG about it!!...We are pregnant and due June 25, 2013!!! We are also VERY excited about this!! :)) Last Sunday(10/21/12) we had to go to Wal-Mart to get a few things and we decided to pick up some pregnancy test because we were out(we have been trying!)...we got home and the first thing I did was take the test, before the 3 minutes was up Matt came running into the bathroom and asked what was going on! He saw the two lines appear and said "what does two lines mean?!" then he read and realized it meant we are PREGNANT!! We are very excited about this and so is family & friends. We ask that if you are reading this you don't post anything on facebook just yet! We are 6 weeks today, according to the blood work I did last week, we have our first ultrasound this Friday(11/2/12) where we should get to hear/see the heartbeat and our little "pea" :)) We can't wait for Spesier Baby #1 to come! :)) 

 Me trying to do the heart picture...didn't turn out so good!
The test! :))

..Praise God!..

These last two weeks have been the best weeks in a long time for Matt & I. We have so much going the way we want it to right now we are just so thankful! We have got to have lots of family time and will have more this weekend! I just can not stop praising God for everything he has done for us. Prayers are getting answered. Last week I bought a ticket to see some friends in Denver,15 days away! && in 28 days we get to go to NYC to visit my dad then drive down to PA to see my mom and the rest of the family! So grateful! 

Sometimes things might not seem like they are going the way you want them to, but just give it time and pray! God does answer prayers!! 

Also, we love the Church we are going to and that helps a lot! We aren't just going to Church to say we are going, we love the worship and message, growing with God and each other. And I am now teaching Children's Church every other week! I find it really important everyone finds a Church they feel comfortable in and has the same beliefs, something where you are LOVING going and not dreading it, and WORSHIPING God, not just a Church that works for them. --Everything you have, God has provided for you, praise him for that!--

SMSU Homecoming!

This past weekend started off with the Gniffke's spending the night on Friday night. We ordered pizza, had oreo shakes and chips, and watched movies. In the morning Tricia, Cory, Tara, and my daycare family joined us for the parade! After that we got food from the Varsity Pub and Tiffany stopped over. We then attempted to watch What To Expect When Expecting but we were all talking to much to be watching it! We then headed to the field with the Millers for tailgating!! It was a blast!! We then did half apps of course, our favorite! It was a fun weekend!!

Parents Are Gone

After years of hearing my parents say they wanted to move back to Pennsylvania it finally has happened. It hurt so much to see them go but I know that they are happy there! It was  so frightening knowing are we going to be okay, what if I need help with something around the house. All I know is at least they are only a phone call away and 20 hour drive. We threw them a surprise going away party and they were definitely surprised!! 
 Off they go..
 All packed up and leaving..
Their going away party!
