For Aubri

OK, I'm not dead, we are doing fine, Lexi is awesome and SO BIG! Kevin is in fabulous health...that's the run down! Hahaha, Aubri said if I blog nothing else, I need to put down the basics so that she won't freak out and think we are dead or something. So here is a little more in depth on the basic. Lexi had her 7 month check up today, she goes to the Dr. about once a month for a weight check and stoma check. She weighs 16lbs 14oz - so close to 17! I talked to the Dr. about her surgery, he will email the surgeon in Portland and ask if we can schedule it in the next month, even though she isn't fully 18 lbs yet. Hopefully he will say yes, and she can have her surgery and then we can move~we think to Austin, Texas. We are pretty sure that is where we should be, but we are waiting for a little more confirmation. We're going to fast on Sunday, and that should be enough to know. I have an appointment (my 12 week? Who knows?) on Tuesday the 3rd to check on the little fishy (that's the baby in my stomach in case you didn't know). Hopefully he/she is doing awesome! I'm not really sick anymore, even though the mere thought of spaghetti makes me want to upchuck - for some reason it really made me sick before, and since Lexi loved it, I would blend it up for her, but then she would burp spaghetti during her night feeding and make me sick again! Oh, that reminds me...she had gross spaghetti breath two Sundays ago, and it was making me queesy. So, my hubby, with sweet intentions took her out, and gave her a Listerine strip!!! He brought her back into sacrament, and she was spitting all over the place trying to get the taste sad, but so funny! And her breath was a lot better after that!! So that's about it....updated! Will post more later.

Finally! The secret is out!

Ok, it's been a long time since I've written anything, and that's partly because the holidays were a busy time for us, and partly because I've had a secret, and I have a hard time keeping that in when it changes everything! I am pregnant - again! It was a complete shock, I thought I was just getting the flu since I was exhausted, and just not feeling so hot. When it hit me, I just knew, and I took the test, and there ya go! So we got into the doctor pretty quickly, and he guesstimated my due date as sometime in late August. We are happy - well, Kevin has been excited since I told him, and it honestly took me a good week to truly be happy about it. I still sometimes get that deer in the headlights look when I talk about it! I'm happy, but sad because it means I will be quitting my job, which I really like and feel like I was moving up with it, but I have to do what's best for my family. It's just not what you expect when you are nursing and on the pill - but it is what it is, and we will love this baby just as much as Lexi. Speaking of Lexi, she is currently screaming her head off right now, she has been having such a hard time going to bed, and so tonight we're just letting her cry it out. It's kind of hard to just do nothing though :( So, I have pictures from a ways back - I made a dress! I cut out the pattern, and sewed it all together and I am pretty dang proud ofmyself! Only problem is that it didn't fit Lexi! She is just in between the newborn and small size, and by the time I was done there was no way I was doing anther one! So this is it I'm really proud of it though! So maybe somewhere along the way, I'll be able to have one of my babies wear it! Also, Lexi got to meet Santa at our ward Christmas party - it was late, and I thought she would scream at him, but I set her on his lap and she just got the biggest grin on her face and started playing with his beard. The lighting was off and our camera isn't very great but it's still really cute!
We are so close to moving into an's been nice to save money and pay off debt though, so I can't complain about it. We are looking, but it's hard to find one in the 8th ward that isn't really expensive, or a piece of junk and still really expensive! So that's about it for us...busy as can be and loving all of it! I know it's late but Happy New Year! What is everyone's resolutions? Mine is to floss at least once a day... so far I'm sticking to it!
