33 Weeks and 3 Days

Well, It's official...I'm on bedrest. Ugh! Started having contractions regularly on Tuesday night and at my Dr's appointment yesterday she found that I've started to dilate. They sent me to the hospital for a shot of Betamethasone? to help the babies lungs to develop quickly. I've also got a prescription to take to slow the contractions. She also discovered that one of the babies flipped positions again and is head up...I was really hoping they would stay head down so I could deliver them naturally. Oh, well! We'll see what happens.
About the picture...We bought the kids helmets this week... Bronwyn really wanted me to try hers on...Ain't I CUTE!!!!
I'll keep you posted...

I can't believe I'm doing this...

So another shot of my belly...this time with my face included.
Augh... the AGONY!
But, I'm going to be brave and do it anyway.

By the way... this is NOT my typical attire...

just getting ready to jump in the pool with the kiddos!

Mother's Day

When you have a missionary in the family Mother's Day takes on a whole new's not really about mom anymore. It's about the PHONE CALL. My mom and Granny decided to come visit those of us on the western side of the state last weekend...So on Sunday afternoon we all gathered at my house to make the long awaited PHONE CALL. Amos was the only sibling not there so he called mom's cell phone and listened to our visit with Sam that way.
It was so nice to hear Sam's voice and to hear how he's doing in Brazil. He's the only one in our immediate family to serve a mission outside of the US (so far...) and the process of talking to him was different from the others. We were only supposed to talk for 40 mins - but I think we were on the phone for nearly 2 hours. We put the phone on speaker phone and just listened to him chatting away.

This is Grant and Braeden...we tried to keep them occupied outside because they were so noisy!
Afterwards we did celebrate Mother's Day with a small BBQ and some super yummy Key Lime Cheesecake from COSTCO (you've gotta try it!) The grandkids also treated Grammy and great Granny to foot rubs.
It was nice to have them here - even though it wasn't long enough! Hope you come again soon...

Happy Birthday Tony!

Today is his big day and we didn't do much of anything...woke up, gave him presents (new jeans and a sleeping bag), sang "Happy Birthday", and waved him off to work. He sent me a message at 10:30 saying he was coming home early so we headed to Boise to meet him and go shopping (YAY for the stimulus package we found in our account this morning!) After shopping we had a super fun lunch at Fudrucker's and did a little more shopping. No big deal, but we had a good time together.

Anyway...Happy Birthday Baby! I love you with all my heart!

I think it's too big to be called a BUMP...

I realized that I haven't posted any pregnant belly pictures yet... I've hesitated to do so in light of a good friend's recent loss.

But on Sunday as I was sitting on the couch staring at my big belly - I thought it would make an interesting picture.

I decided to share a few pictures and hope that it doesn't cause my sweet friend more grief.

I'm now 30 weeks along and hope to make it for 6 more weeks...
