Scott Gals in St. George


St. George has sadly come and gone. It was definitely glorious not having any children with us but strange at the same time. I think we talked about them practically the entire time. A few things we did over the three days were getting pedicures, swimming, and talking none stop. We also went to see Shrek and Letters for Juliet. We ate so much food we made ourselves sick, but it was so worth it:) I missed Kellen like crazy and it didn't help that he got sick the day after I left. Tyler took good care of him though and he's feeling better. The picture above is of him showing off his new outfit Grandma bought him on our trip.

Girls Trip 2010


One of the perks to living in Arizona is the fact that I can travel to St. George and meet my mom and sisters for a girls trip now. I have been looking forward to doing this for such a long time. The best part is that no kids are allowed. It's crazy to think that I've never spent an entire day away from Kellen since he was born, so this will definitely be a nice treat. I plan on coming back refreshed and replenished, and maybe 10 lbs heavier;) Adios everyone...oh, and a special thanks to my wonderful husband Tyler for making this all possible, you're the best!

Contrary to my last post - 11 reasons why I love being pregnant

So the sad thought came into my mind about all my friends and family members out there who can't get pregnant and who would give anything to experience pregnancy. So to all of you, here are the reasons why I love being pregnant.

1. You get to put on as much weight as you want and not feel guilty.
2. You get to have three bowls of ice cream each night.
3. You get to feel the most amazing little person squirm inside of you.
4. You get special treatment from everyone, including strangers.
5. If you don't feel like cleaning the house, you have a good reason.
6. If your husband is sweet, he'll give you a foot massage whenever you ask.
7. You get to look forward to something for nine months...like Christmas.
8. You get to plan and buy cute baby stuff.
9. You can get out of moving boxes and carrying heavy things when you move into a new house.
10. You get to have your mother come visit you for an entire two weeks.
11. You get to buy new clothes, even if they're not the most stylish.

I am very blessed and wouldn't change my situation for the world. I hope everyone gets to experience pregnancy at least once in their life because it is truly amazing.

You start looking forward to delivery day when...

1. you go pee downstairs, walk upstairs and need to go again.
2. shaving your legs and painting your toe nails is no longer possible.
3. one bowl of ice cream turns into three.
4. pregnancy clothes no longer fit you.
5. the scale shows numbers you never thought you would see
6. sleeping is the only thing you desire and 9 p.m. just doesn't come fast enough
7. your husband laughs at your feet and pushes on them to see the indent
8. cleaning the house seems like climbing Mount Everest.
9. peeing 6 times a night no longer phases you.
10. you see women in bathing suits and wonder what it felt like to wear one.
11. tears fill your eyes because you just wore that shirt.

Just a few funny things I was thinking about today. If you feel I missed any, please feel free to let me know. It sadly will be over before I know it, and I then I'll probably miss being pregnant like I did before...but for journaling sake.

Summer Fun

My favorite thing growing up was playing in our paddling pool in our backyard. It was fun buying one for Kellen and seeing him enjoy it as much as I did. It got in the 90's today, so it was perfect. Even though the water was freezing cold, it didn't phase him one bit. Now we just need to buy him a swimsuit to go with it.

10 weeks to go

This pregnancy has gone so much faster than the first one. I can't believe I'm already 30 weeks. It's kinda starting to scare me. I really don't know how I'm going to handle two children. I hope and pray that this baby is a little easier than Kellen was. At least we know a little bit more what we're doing this time right? But then again, every baby is so different. Our only worry is sleep deprivation:( We can't seem to forget those nights when Kellen wouldn't fall asleep until 4:00 a.m. after driving on the freeway for an hour, only to have him wake up again after we brought him inside. I guess we'll just take it one day at a time.

For now I'm just trying to enjoy these last couple months with my little man. I love our cuddle times reading books and taking walks to the park together. His vocabulary is starting to expand like crazy. He makes me laugh so hard when he babbles on pointing to things and pretending like we're having a conversation. He's been finding his old binkies and putting them in his mouth lately, trying to pretend like he's a baby. He's never liked them, so I'm sure he won't mind the baby using them. I love his blue eyes in this picture.

Oh, and one more exciting thing. Kellen started nursery three weeks ago and did awesome!!! I've never enjoyed church so much before. He only cried for a couple minutes. I can't stop peeking in the windows to see what he's up to. It's fun to watch:) My little boy is growing up.
