What we've been up to over the last 9 months!

A lot has happened since the last time that I posted something on our blog. Thanks to my persistent friends (Becky and Cori :)) and my guilty conscience, I finally posted something before the baby came. The biggest thing that has happened in our lives since our last post is our journey being pregnant. Other big, life changing things that have happened are; Brent's decision to make a career change and quit his job and Deloitte and join a start up company, and our move from Seattle, WA to Bellevue, WA.

This first picture is of Brent in front of our first "real" Christmas tree. Staying true to the Dance Family tradition, the day after Thanksgiving we drove up to North Bend, Washington (with the Hallbergs) and cut down our own Christmas tree. We also sat on Santa's lap and got a Christmas cookie and apple cider. I do have to admit that I really like this tradition. We wanted to feel at home this Christmas seeing as it will be our first Christmas on our own. It was scheduled to be an Anderson Christmas in Utah this year but with the baby coming so soon we thought it would be best to stay in Washington.



39 weeks pregnant. Due any day!!!! Can't wait to see our baby boy!




At my baby shower in Utah. The weather happened to be amazing that weekend so we were fortunate enough to have it outside. It was so great to see family members, neighbors, and friends that I hadn't seen in a long time. 32 weeks prego- 8th month.




Brent and I took a trip to New Hampshire to visit Dartmouth's business school (Tuck) so Brent could do a personal interview with them. It is his favorite business school by far and would absolutely love to attend there. It was a beautiful time of year to visit New England. The leaves were the most vibrant I've ever seen. 30 weeks prego- 7th month.



28 weeks prego- 7th month



With Mason Jennings at his concert. It was really cool because we told him that "Ballad for My One True Love" was our wedding song and he said he would see what he could do to play it that night. We were on the front row and about 5 songs into the concert they played our song and I swear he looked at us and smiled :) 27 weeks prego- 7th month.



We love Seattle Sounders soccer games! 27 weeks prego- 6th month.



With Mom and Dad Dance in Portland, Oregon at a mission president conference. 26 weeks prego- 6th month.

You did it!! Such an adorable blog and I teared up seeing my little Andy with such a cute big belly. You are such a beautiful pregnant lady. You are all baby too. I can't wait for this little guy to come. He is so lucky to be born to such wonderful parents. I'll be thinking about you all week and wonderin' if little baby Dance has made his welcome to the world. Love you Andy!
