Brotherly Love

Carson is such a good big brother. He's always looking for toys and giving them to Savannah. He's always interested in what she's doing. He always asks to hold her. She is so lucky.

Gettin Big - 5

39 weeks now - I don't think I look that much different anymore. I'm sure I'm growing though. This will be the last picture of me pregnant. I'm scheduled to be induced on Sunday, the 26th. The 26th was the original due date that the doctor told me, and after the ultrasound was done, the machine spit out the 28th. So, basically, I think I'm just done! We'll post details as they come.

Good Food

This is a recipe I made recently and want to share it on the blog cause it is YUMMAY. It's basically breaded chicken stuffed with a spinach-cheese mixture. I got the recipe off of It's called "Chicken Parmesan Bundles". All I did different from the recipe they have on their site is: I used Italian bread crumbs instead of ritz crackers and I used only 3 chicken breasts instead of 6 and it all worked out fine!

Baby stuff

Baby is finally here! Isn't he cute? He was bigger than we ever expected, but he sure likes the swing!

haha, ok, baby isn't here yet. We got down all the baby stuff and Tucker of course has to sit inside the baby swing. It's been holding his weight, so we're letting him do it - for now.


Do you know how long I"ve been waiting for this? That baby 'ticker' thing up there finally says 'This is it!' After all these months of checking the progress of the baby and just waiting for this pregnancy to be done, it's finally ending (soon). (within days?)

Our Friend Christina

Christina had her 6th birthday party today. Here are the kids playing pin the tail on the horse.
What a treat! There were real (nice) horses for the kids to ride!
I guess this is an exercise to help the kids feel more comfortable on the horse, even without holding on.
Carson was so excited after his rides, he really loved the experience. The horses were beautiful and totally calm around all the kids.

There was a pinata......

and later the kids got to go on more rides - even bareback!

Yes, Tucker was there too, he just did this the whole time.

Tucker is years younger than all the kids there, so I guess he was interested in other things.

He did have a good time though, playing with all the toys and eating lots of good food. Thanks for a good time, Christina, we really enjoyed the party and we're glad you're our friend!

Gettin Big - 4

38 weeks now. Just had an ultrasound yesterday. The baby looks perfect as can be, and the doctor says the weight is around 7 lbs, 7 oz. right now. My feet and ankles are getting more and more swollen everyday, probably from increasing weight. Everything is normal normal normal, which is great! I just have to have patience in these last days.

Ahhh, sitting down is a luxury.
Lying down is an even greater luxury.
They both go sour after a while though (when I'm this pregnant).

Gettin' Big 3

Ok, I posted three pictures of me cause clothes made me look different and I was slouching in one picture, but whatever. (I say 'whatever' constantly now, just in the last few days. Why?) You get to see three pictures of my bigness at 37 weeks. Things are getting really heavy and the baby still moves quite a bit, and it hurts! I grimace and suck in my breath all the time now when standing up or moving in any way. I've noticed the baby likes to 'sit' on my right side, I can see in the mirror that my belly is bulging more on the right side than on the left. The baby sits way low, and always has. I have no smashing of the lungs, except when I lay down and my head isn't elevated. So it's just smashing of the bladder and probably intestines!

Eating Machine

Sorry, no pictures for this post, just words.

I have become an eating machine! Everytime I eat, I don't quite get that full feeling, so I can just keep eating! Is this the body's way of putting on the weight in the last days of pregnosity? And when I have a craving, watch out! I'm going to find a way to satisfy that craving. Sofia's blog post about Virginia City made me think about their fudge shop, and so now I have to make a trip to Scheel's and get some fudge!
Also, I have heard about 3 or 4 stories in the last 5 months or so about people having been told their baby will be a girl through ultrasound pictures, but then the baby pops out a boy! So I'm being open-minded about this baby. We are prepared either way.....
