When I was little my mom made me watch Pollyanna like a hundred times so I would learn there really is a good side to everything you just have to look. Well yesterday it wasn't to hard to find that good side. One of the tests they had to run was an ultrasound of the baby. Our appointment is tomorrow so it was fun to get a sneak peak. They even sent us home with a few pictures. So of course I took pictures of my pictures so I could share. It was cute they waved at me. I could see all the little, long fingers moving to say hi :) Of course they don't tell you anything so I will have to wait until tomorrow to know everything is ok and if it's a boy or a girl but I loved getting to peak and see whats going on it there :)
Yesterday sucked! I wont lie. Brandon needed to get caught up on work so he bailed on me for church and I missed the last week cause I was still sick with the flu/head cold drama, so off I went by myself. They kids did really well, and Andrew even said his part in the Primary Program ( I was proud he has a hard time with primary cause he HATES singing) But in the last class I was feeling AWFUL. I don't event think that discribes it. Luckily when I got home after the kids made me chase them down Brandon was home thank goodness cause I was dying. I haven't been in that much pain for a long time and I was freaking out so the doctor had us go to Labor and Delivery. Not something you want to hear at twenty weeks. I started feeling a little better when I got there thankfully, but I was still pretty scared they ran eighty hundred test (I got cute pictures of the baby) and thankfully I was not in labor. But at least I didn't go for nothing. I have kidney stones again. Isn't that fun. Seriously... I am so tired of being sick. I can't seem to catch a break but at least the baby is ok :)
We were so lucky to be able to come up to Salt Lake to have a little party for Berkelee's birthday. It was so much fun. We love being with our friends and family and couldn't have asked for a better birthday for our little lady. Grandma Rachel sent us a little money so we even got a darling outfit for her to wear
to her party. Thanks everyone for helping us celebrate.
These ones are between one a two. I always had a hard time getting people to believe she was only one
These next couple are between about 5 months and a year
Our new little lady... these are from the first few weeks of her life.
I can't believe my baby is two! I thought I would look through some pictures today I then cause I got caught up in her cuteness I had to post them I can't believe how much she has grown. She is totally a little person. No more baby :( We sure love you Berkelee
I tried for about twenty minutes to get a picture but she is to busy being a frog, so this will have to do. We got half of the stiches taken out today to try to help the scar not be so bad. She was so big she didn't even cry. She wiggled a little bit but hi she is almost and has a sharp object coming toward her head. So I was pretty proud of her. She will get the rest out on her birthday, along with a trip to the dentist to look at her tooth so I am sure she will be singing my praises that day. I am glad it's healing so well though
Last night was a sad night. Like every night when Brandon comes home, Berkelee dragged him outside to play. Of course Andrew went with them. They were out there a while. I went out a few times to check on them but mostly just finished dinner until I heard Brandon scream. I ran outside to see Berkelees head covered in blood and obviously the rest of her too from the leakage. You see Andrew had decided to work on his golf swing and Berkelee didn't know what that ment when the club met her forehead. She has 7 stiches, a swollen lip and a broken tooth. My poor baby! She was quite a trooper. She screamed/cried a lot until they got it stiched up (I couldn't watch so I left with Andrew) she whinned for a minute until she got her x-rays and then she was dancing all over the hospital. She will get her stiches out on her birthday (what a present) It is seriously the saddest thing ever.
We took pictures at Andrews soccer this weekend. It was a lot of fun to watch he even got to do the first kick off. He has a hard time paying attention for the whole game but it's still really fun. His cute coach said to him at the end of the game "way to go Andrew, your attention span doubled" He loves it. They even got their team picture back this week, I thought they were darling. I took a picture of the picture :) so you could enjoy. I got little "cards" of his solo picture so let me know if you want one.
Berkelee is quite the artist these day. But I am amazed at how much her "letters" really look like letters. I think it is cute. She even sing the letters while she draws them. She is too big for her own good.
The day Andrew has been waiting for all summer is finally here. Andrew started his first day of his last year of preschool yesterday. He was so excited. He loves school and he was mad when I came to pick him up. I love that he loves learning so much :)
Every day Andrew asks me for a pet, and I finally caved. Last Saturday we bought Kipper, our new pet :) The kids love him and they have so much fun. I am glad that we got it for them. It sleeps in Andrews room and when he wakes up in the
morning he sits and talks to him. It's pretty dang cute if I do say so myself. And look at that face when he is bringing home the pet from the store. SO cute!
Berkelee loves Brandon to a million pieces. And if you haven't met Berkelee to many times you might not know that she rules the world (aka she's pretty bossy) So when Daddy comes home the first thing Berkelee says is come here and they have to go play outside, he doesn't even get to change. He off course loves it and the kids wait for it daily. It is adorable to watch.
