Nothing too new 'round here...

So it really has been a while since I last posted, but to be fair, my life has been one great big remake of "Ground Hog Day". Same thing happens over and over(and over and over) again. Every day I wake up to find Zach at his desk studying, every day I try and think of something new to do(usually quite unsuccessfully) and every day I go to bed while Zach is still sitting at his desk, wait for it... studying. So that tends not to lend itself to an exciting blog post. The biggest thing that happened in my life(other then the child growing inside of me:)) is the fact that I've been able to witness spring for the first time since 2005, three years! Now to most of you this would not be a big deal, but for Zach and I, seeing flowers coming into bloom and having rainy weather is kinda exciting. We had two years of summer straight(with one mini winter, albeit a BC one, in between) and it was getting quite old.
As for things pregnancy wise, I'm feeling great. I'm going to be 36 weeks on Wednesday and Zach and I can't believe how fast it has been going. I'll post a picture of my ever-expanding stomach once I take the 36 week shot. We're both getting really excited to meet the baby, are really curious to find out what we are having and who this baby will look like. We're pretty excited to give the baby a name finally, and not just the gender-neutral/unisex name that we've given the it in the meantime... Pat Ashley Kelly (a list of all the names that first came to mind when Anna and I were brainstorming one night)! The appointments with the midwives have been great, we're feeling really comfortable with them and are so glad that we chose to go with them.
And amidst it all, Zach has been plugging away preparing for his board exam, which he writes this Thursday. Hard to believe that 9 weeks of studying is almost over, all that prep boils down to one test-8 hours, weird. He's feeling prepared and anxious to write it(the prepared part is foreign to me, I've never felt prepared for a test in my life!) and is just tying up loose ends in his studying now and doing some memorizing that had to wait until the very end. I've been helping him out these past few days by quizzing him and I'm always blown away by how much stuff that guy can cram into his head. And not just the type of knowledge that is in there for now and is gone after the test, he retains this stuff so well and has learned it for the long term. Better him then me:)
Anyway, here are a few random shots from the past month... 

Even though this is a page out of my mom's book, I couldn't resist taking some pictures of Spring time flowers:)
