Jackpot!!

So, I had a serious craving for cinnamon rolls today (thank you Rachael) so I asked my dad to pick me up a box of frozen cinnamon rolls from a bakery near his shop. he showed up with a box of 9 dozen rolls that he purchased for, get this, $2.50. Can you believe that?! and there not like the Pillsbury dough boy ones, these are huge rolls of deliciousness. I was able to fit 7 dozen in my freezer so I was forced to bake 2 dozen tonight and I have no regrets. Yummy! Thanks dad and thanks Rich's Bakery.

An Ittsy-Bitsy Kick

I am now 4 months along. My stomach has "popped" and so has my belly button. I feel pretty good although I am still having some trouble eating. I am starting to finally feel like I am pregnant, especially since last night I felt the baby kick for the first time. Last week David broke out his stethoscope and we found the babies heart beat, which was Supper Cool. Then a few days later he tried to find it again but had no luck. Instead, he heard and felt the baby kick. Sadly, I wasn't paying enough attention so I didn't feel it. So, David was the first to feel the baby, isn't that weird?! So, I have been trying to feel the baby, myself, every night since then and last night as I laid in bed, with the stethoscope to my belly, the kid kicked it three separate times. Each time it did I felt a silly little grin form on my face. It felt like someone flicking me from the inside and I loved it. I am so excited to be moving into this stage of the pregnancy, it is so fun to feel the baby and know that it is still there. I get find out the sex pretty soon and I am excited to put a name to this little miracle. Man, this pregnancy is going by so much faster than Evelyn's did I just hope I can be attentive enough to enjoy all the little Joys of this one like I did with Evelyn.

I forgot to post these earlier, I want to keep track of my doctor's appointments and the progress we are making. So here is what I missed...

and She Walks

... Well, it's not exactly her preferred mode of mobility but she can do it. She took her first steps august 31st and then she stood up and walked all by herself on September 13th. Now she refuse to walk unless she is holding someones finger, EEEERRR! Oh, well I am sure she will learn to love walking on her own at some point.

Pregnancy Update

This is for Jessica who pointed out that I have a baby growing inside me and I haven't said much about it. Sorry about that, I have been supper tired. In fact I have been taking an average of two naps a day, I sleep when Evelyn sleeps which doesn't leave a whole lot of time for blogging.

First of all, this pregnancy is a huge blessing, another miracle. We didn't even think we would be able to have another kid with all our fertility problems and then *poof * 9 moths after Evelyn two lines show up. We are so grateful that Heavenly Father is entrusting us with another precious soul and we are excited to watch our family grow.

So, I am now in my second trimester. I am 12 weeks and my estimated due date is March 18Th, that means that Evelyn will be 18 months when this new one shows up. That thought is a little intimidating, two babies at once, but I am supper excited that they will be so close together. Hopefully they will be great friends. I do keep running through all the things that two babies means...2 cribs, 2 sets of diapers, 2 highchairs, a double stroller... it can get a little over whelming but then I think about how much fun they will have together and I feel much better.

When I was nine weeks we got to see the baby on an ultra sound and it waved its little nubby arms at us, way cool! I would post the ultra-sound but we don't have a scanner and taking a picture of it just didn't work. So, next time you are at my house check it out, it is on the fridge.

This pregnancy is already so different from Evelyn. I am way more tired, probably because what ever energy is left from making this baby is spent on entertaining my other baby. I also have worst nausea problems. Every time I think of or look ate or attempt to eat any type of food I feel sick so I really don't eat a whole lot. Even when I can force my self to eat I don't get much down before I am over come with this yucky feeling and have to stop. I have actually lost 2 pounds in the last 2 weeks, which is really ironic because I have spent so long trying to lose that last 4 pounds from Evelyn to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight and nothing. Then I get pregnant and stop trying and start losing. Like I said, ironic. I don't really feel like I am pregnant yet so I get really frustrated when I can't eat or I want to sleep my day away but David has been very patient and that helps. Oh, that's another thing, I have no patience. My personality never really changed with Evelyn but I can already tell that this one is going to do a number on me.

OK, it is almost nap time. I will try to be more diligent in my blogging but no promises. Well, I'm off to bed.

Some Random Cute Pics

Watching Daddy play soft ball.

Getting into trouble again. she loves to climb in the cupboards to play, it is so cute.

She finally fits in her Duck costume... To bad its August not October.


She did this all by herself. She pushed the car over to the window and climbed up. She was so proud of herself.
