Father's Day

Happy Father's Day Cody!! You've mastered the whole daddy-daughter thing, are you ready for the father-son thing?! I couldn't have asked for a better father for my children! We love you so much and all you do for our family.

Baby update

So I had an ultrasound yesterday. I was 33 weeks and 3 days. They took 4 measurements of him, his femur, head, abdomen and I can't remember the other one, but the average of the 4 measurements put him at 35 weeks and a couple days!! Oh and they guessed him to be 5'13"!! I know ultrasounds are usually a little generous and predict that they are bigger than they really are, so my dr. didn't get too, too excited. The only problem is, is that I want to do a VBAC. I had a c-section w/ Londyn and I want to try to deliver the normal way this time. My dr. is all for it, but he doesn't want to induce me. It's better for a person doing a VBAC to go into labor on their own. The risk is uterine rupture (scary!!) so if they use pitocin it can make the contractions too strong. So I think I'll be doing a lot of walking in the next few weeks and hope that I go into labor early on my own. If I still haven't had him as it gets closer to my due date, the more likely I'll have to have a repeat c-section, because of his size. So, we'll see!! I'm just anxious for him to get here. I want to see him! He was really wiggly during the ultrasound so I didn't get very good pictures. Only 2 sort-of ok profile shots.
But, overall I feel pretty ready for him. I have most of the stuff he'll need right away. Like pjs, onesies, binkies, blankets and bottles. His room is all ready (but like he'll even be in there!) and my mother in law is making new bassinet bedding for me so that's almost ready. I just need things for later, like bigger clothes, boy bibs, boy sippy cups, boy toys...pretty much all things BOY! I want to get some sort of swing too, cuz I know I won't be able to hold him all the time with a demanding 3 year old! Exciting times! Cody wants to start taking bets on when he'll get here. He thinks July 14th. I think July 20th (the actual due date is Aug 2nd). Who knows?!?!

4 Years

(my twin cousins Sam and Karli, 2 of my flower girls. See the rain puddles behind them?)

4 years ago today I married my best friend! What a great day! It's kind of weird though because the weather today is almost exactly how the weather was on our wedding day. I woke-up to a cold, rainy, windy day. When I went to get my hair done my umbrella blew inside out. I was so upset that of all days it had to rain it had to on my wedding day! When we went into the temple it was still raining, but.... by the time we came out for pictures it had stopped raining and about 30 minutes later, the clouds were gone and it turned out to be a beautiful, cool, sunny day. It turned out perfect! We had our reception at the Salt Lake Country Club and we got to use the inside and the outside, so I'm so glad the weather cleared up.

It's been a good 4 years; working as a nurse, being a mom, waiting for Jackson to get here, building our 1st house, going through job changes, trips, etc..... A lot of good memories! I can't wait to see what else is in store for us! Happy Anniversary Cody!

The reveal...

Here are a few pictures of baby Jackson's room. It's pretty much done, I just need a few more things for the walls; pictures, vinyl lettering, a shelf, etc..... But we think it turned out pretty cute. We love to just sit in there at night in the rocker. It's a calming room, hopefully Jackson will think so too!

31 weeks!

On Sunday Cody took a few 31 week pics for me. I haven't been very good about taking them every week. It's more like once a month! Oh well. Here are a couple that I liked. (yes Londyn is crazy!!) 8 weeks and 5 days to go....hopefully less though! = )
