So, to start, here is a picture proving that I least wore the cap and gown! :)
Ok, this next part is going to be pretty much completely random. Lately, with the baby coming, I've been reminiscing about our wedding. I'm not really sure why, except probably because that was a huge milestone in my life, and right around the same date, two years later, I'll be reaching another milestone, the birth of our first baby. I am so excited for her to come, and with the approaching birth, I find myself with a lot of the same thoughts and feelings that I had two years ago when my wedding was approaching. I am so excited for this new stage, for another level of love to enter into my life, but am so scared at the same time. Before it was, "what if I'm a terrible wife... what if I'm not actually a good cook and he starves or something... what if his family hates me... what if.. what if... what if..." Now its more like "what if something goes wrong with the pregnancy or labor... what if she never sleeps... what if we don't know how to get her to stop crying..." and so on.

Anyways, I've been looking at our wedding photos this week, and I realized that since we started the blog so late, we never really put any on here. So, here are a (very) select few.




And as nervous as I am, I really am soooo excited, and I know deep down that everything will be fine, but what kind of mother would I be if I didn't worry, right? And I'm so glad that I didn't let any of the wedding nerves scare me away, because I am so glad to be married to Mike. He is a wonderful husband and friend. I love spending time with him and surprising him with things (and I love it when he surprises me with things :)) He's being remarkably patient with me through my pregnancy mood swings and cravings, which I'm very grateful for, and he's going to be a great father!

Isn't it funny how we (women) always worry, worry, worry and it all ends up just fine. I had those same fears... but you have nothing to worry about. Alicia, I have no doubt that you and Mike are going to be AMAZING parents! We can't wait to meet her:). By the way, you look GORGEOUS in your wedding pics.

I know what you mean? Today I was sitting in Sacrament Meeting and listening to the babies crying around me and the thought occured to me, "As much I think my baby will be perfect, he is going to cry during Sacrament Meeting." That made me nervous and excited! It's exciting that our babies will soon be here! Life is about to change so much, it's crazy, but so good! We miss playing games with you guys. We went to play games with a couple in our ward and we played Boggle. I like the game but it's no Kingsburg!!! Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy... WE CAN DO IT!!!!

That is a beautiful temple isn't it--you have beautiful wedding pictures. And your right, all parents worry, and it would be strange if you didn't :)

You'll be amazed at how naturally most everything comes - and for the stuff you're not so sure about, that's what moms and mother-in-laws and friends with kids are for. You'll do great!
