Saying goodbye to the belly....

As most of you know by now we are being induced today because of 8 days of high blood pressure (at least 185/115). We are 3 weeks and 2 days early but everything should be just fine :)
So before we left for the hospital this morning we took a few pictures and even took a picture in labor and delivery-im being induced so the process is SLOW! So yes, we are bored :)

My last meal!

The "almost" finished nursery!!

Here are just a few snap shots that I have taken of the nursery! We are so excited to be able to bring Bridger home to it!!

Its beginning to look a lot like christmas!

I seriously cant believe how fast the weather changed! It snowed a tiny bit in November and a tiny bit on December 1st-but it looks like winter has finally decided to grace us!!
I HATE driving in the snow-so I visited Kira today and stayed there most of the night-decided that I didnt want to drive home, and now that Im hear I dont really want to leave! Here are a few pictures from my porch!

Welcome Stella Joy!

Well it FINALLY happened! :) Kira gave birth to Stella in record time tonight! She went to the hospital at about 7:45 and Stella made her appearance at 8:40! So Kira had no medicine and Im sure she just loved that ;)
She was 7 lbs 5 oz and 21 1/2 inches long-same as Emma but they look nothing alike :)
Born at 8:40 on 11-29-09 on her due date! So here are a few hurried pictures we took in labor and delivery!
P.S. My computer has decided that it doesnt want to upload any more pictures so I will add more tomorrow :)

Goodbye Grandma Bobbie

So I know this isnt the best picture but its the only one I have of grandma Bobbie.
On November 9th, my mom, Koree, and Bobbie were driving back from SLC after Koree's doctor apointment. About 8 at night they pulled into my moms driveway and my mom unloaded all her things. They went back outside and grandma was in her seat, seatbelt on, and was saying her goodbyes. That was the last time anyone spoke to her. About 5 minutes after my family went back inside my parents could see cops outside-they opened the door and realized Bobbie was still there. She had for some reason gotten out of the car and was eventually ran over by her own van, she died on the way to the hospital.
It has been about a week now and things are getting better, but there is just such a mystery surrounding her death that just makes it hard to deal with. Did she forget something from the back of her van and forget to put it into park? Did she have a heart attack and tried to get out of the van out of habbit? What happened? Unfortunatley that answer only lies with heavenly father-I just pray that she wasn't in pain.
The picture above was at my shower on October 24 and is the latest I have. Bobbie loved to take pictures, not be in them-so we are trying to scrounge up good pictures of her.
I love you grandma Bobbie and you will be missed! <3

Here is a link to her story-

Due date #1 come and gone...

Well it has been a full 9 months since we first found out we were unexpectedly expecting Barney baby #1 back in February. Our original due date was November 6th which was kind of a depressing day around here-although not many knew it.
Benjamin wanted to light a candle and so we did and he was super sweet and brought me home flowers and a card. We are so happy to be having this baby that we are now-just a little sad that we lost 2 to get to where we are, but we know the Lord has a plan and this is just what was in store for us! So with that we say "We love you baby" and count down until our due date! 9 more weeks!

The new swing & a sick Ben :(

We had been saving up to buy a baby swing for a while and after loads of research (which I do before I buy ANYTHING) I finally picked one. I was debating between a full size swing and a portable. I had wanted a full size but then heard the heavier the baby got the less effective it was at swinging. Well my brother Koree had this rocking chair with a kickstand that he used when he was eating or playing and my mom passed it on to my sister Kristen. While I was in Arizona, she used it daily and seemed to love it. Well i was looking around-and found that chair-on a swing! I was excited because after they are done with the swing (25 lbs) they can use it for a rocking chair until 40. Plus it was way cheaper and it had turtles on it (gender neutral and matches the nursery!) I am very happy with the purchase and the reviews! So here are some pictures!!

This is what I found when I opened the box :(

BUT I LOVE TURTLES! So im very happy with the seat!!

And here is the finished swing! The seat easily comes off and has handles that you can carry wherever! I think I love it just because of the turtles :)

And poor Benjamin had a migrane all day but I couldnt wait to assemble the swing-so Benjamin laid on the couch and watched. Poor guy!

One thing I like-and one thing I don't

First off I have come to LOVE this cocoa butter oil! The little sample of it was only $1.00 at Motherhood Maternity and because its oil it lasts so much longer!! My tummy has had issues being itchy and it feels good to have Benjamin "oil" my belly everynight. Plus it wakes up baby so Ben get to play with him for a bit! Best dollar spent!!!

This is my foot-about 10 minutes after taking of my crocs :( I had been wearing flip flops but the indents they leave in my feet are horrid-so i switched to my crocs thinking they would be more comfortable. Nope-I was wrong :( Guess we are moving to plan C when I find shoes that fit :( Poor puffy swollen feet!


Well Halloween has come and gone and as I have gotten older and have yet to have a baby-it just doesnt seem like that big of deal but Im glad I participated at least a little :) I LOVE the fall though! Pumpkins, straw, squash, the crisp cold air-I just adore it! So my mom was out of town so she asked me to take Koree trunk-or-treating with Emma and Kira. I got to Kira's house and Emma was going to be a witch. They had braided her hair and was going to take it out and let it me crazy!

So we got joey dressed up as spider man and they looked adorable together!

We went to Kira's ward trunk-or-treat and it was pretty much insanity! People everywhere and some older kid (maybe 10?) kept chasing Koree with a fake sword and of course scared him! This is a little preview of trunk-or-treat number 1 :)

Trunk or treat number 2 was much better! Plus Amber's parents were making scones-YUM! There was also donuts and hot chocolate! My idea of a good trunk-or-treat! Plus a lot more tame-take a look!

So over all Halloween was great! I went home and took a nap until Benjamin got home!! Only 3 more holidays before the baby is due! 79 days! CRAZY!!

So I now have a dress, nice shirt and PANTS!! Im so excited and so grateful for these! So here is my 29 week baby belly in the new cothes!! Thanks Joan :)

Baby Shower

So these pictures are kind of out of order but you will eventually get the picture! The baby shower was last Saturday on Oct 24 and it was seriously such a blast!! Only 1 minor problem-people dont RSVP anymore :) So we really had no idea how many people were going to show up-and there was quite the turn out! It so super exciting to have a big get together before the baby is born!!
Anyway-my dad took all these shots candid so I look semi silly in most of them but I love them! Thanks DADDY! :) And thanks to my mom and Brandi for throwing it! They did great! The green blankets my mother-in-law made and i ADORE them. The baby's nursery is in frogs and turtles so she made matching fleece blankets. We also got a snow suit and some Carters sleep bags which I love!! Over all it was fantastic and everyone was great! I still have lots I need to get-but there is still time right? Its going by so quick!

Date night and updates :)

So I've been horrible about updating the blog and I have no legitimate excuse. Im a stay at home housewife right now and it still seems like there is never time! But Im working on it. Benjamin and I have been trying to make Thursdays our "date night" we want to get into the routine of having one now so even after the baby is born we still have them and keep in mind that they are still important! So we headed off to ButterBurrs! LOVE IT THERE! Espically because you can get a full meal for $5.99! Then we went up to Cherry Springs (where Ben and i had our first date and where he proposed) so we took the camera and took turns taking pictures and here are some of them!
Also we are almost 29 weeks pregnant! Crazy how fast time is going! My neice Stella will be here in about 4 weeks and Im so excited! I cant believe how fast our pregnancies have gone-only 81 days!! We had another ultrasound and everything is checking out fine. The placenta has moved and a quote from my doctor :
"um, yes you had placenta previa and it was complete. Um, yes it has now moved. No, its nowhere near your cervix, yes i have pictures to prove both! You guys must really have someone on the other end rooting for you" and I know that is how it happened, all the prayers must have worked-so it looks like we are set for a "normal" delivery after all!! SO STOKED!!! The picture of him is kind of hard to make out but here is a little explanation-his head is in the lower right, his back lays along the bottom and his hips are in the upper left, he then has his knees brought down to his face and his toes tucked behind his head and a hand sticking up between his legs and he was waving! I love ultrasounds, they are so much fun! We might be having one more 3d/4d but we will see how things work out! Ill keep posting with whatelse has been going on :)

Some pictures of the nursery-

Well we finally ordered our nursery bedding set today and started putting things together instead of just having boxes around. I LOVE turtles-so we went with green, blue, and brown with frogs and turtles! I LOVE IT!!! Anyway-here are some pictures!
