Why is it that lately wherever I go people start talking about babies, being pregnant, or what they would do if they were? Now, they don't talk to me....more about me....Like I have no idea that they are talking about me, I'm huge I know, but show some tact people!!!!

At a restaurant last week, at the park yesterday, at the grocery store this week, everywhere I go people look at me like, 'Oh you poor girl'. Now it is not all in my mind, I can actually HEAR them talking!

Yesterday I took Brady and Gavin to the park, Gavin is a good 5 inches shorter than Brady so I guess to the unknowing person they could be brothers who are a year or so apart....After pretending that I could not hear the teenagers for about an hour, these 60 + ladies walk by and one says to me,

'Are these ALL yours?',

NO I said, just the taller one......

'OH', she says, 'I was going to say, THAT POOR GIRL!'

Apparently no one in Vegas thinks you should have kids closer than about 5 years apart! (well, except us crazy Mormons!)

Here is a pic of the boys for your reference!

Two More Days

We are moving into our house Thursday, whether it is done or not...wish us luck! There are a few things that need to be done, so hopefully everyone gets busy until then and finishes! I went with Heidi last night and took a few pictures (then my camera died). So here are our entry way, and back living room. They are done, which is nice to say! The colors are not great because it was dark, so I'll send better ones later!

Girl Friends

I went to a baby shower for my good friend Jen last night. Thanks to Rachel! These are my great friends from our ward here in Vegas. (only a few are missing) We see eachother at least twice a week for play group, but we are always looking for excuses to get together with out kids! Bunko, Girls Night Out, and Book Club are so far what we have on a regular basis. I don't know what I'd do here with out all these ladies!

"My A Monkey Mom"

Well, I am ruined.
Brady still sleeps in a crib, as many of you know. But he is an excellent napper, so I figured as long as he can't get out he will continue to take naps, which is very important with the baby coming.... Well this morning I heard a thud and I thought he ust have thrown a toy from his crib, WRONG. Next thing we know Brady is in our room yelling, "My dit out a my bed! My a monkey mommy!" He was so proud of himself that he wanted to show me how he did it.
It scared me because instead of climbing out the lower side he went to the head of the bed and climbed over that. He starts by laying on the bar, then hangs for a long while looking like he's about the fall, and then, all of the sudden he flips his legs over and falls to the floor! I didn't breathe until he was out!
We'll have to see if he continues this climbing thing....I am not very happy about it.

Camera vs. Video

Hi all! I need some help, maybe this is lame but I do not know how to get the videos off of my camera. Where can I put them? Where do I go? I have about 20 I'd die if I lose, but I have no idea what to do! Let me know what you know!!!

Sleepy Boy

After a long weekend of cousins in Herriman, getting no sleep, and eating almost nothing, Brady slept all the way to Vegas yesterday! He took his nap all the way to Cedar City, woke up long enough to eat and play in the car on the way to St. George. (about 2 hours), then he asked, 'Take a nap, pleeease?' So I told him to go to sleep, and he DID! Well, he stayed asleep all through the night and woke up at 7 a.m. happy as ever! Not bad, 14 hours of sleep in a 16 hour period!
So, thank you to all our family for making our drive home the Best Ever!!!!

Here is a picture from Katie's baby shower. We are only 3 of 5 who are due within 2 weeks of eachother! Katie is due March 24, Allison is March 26, and I'm the 28th!Maybe all our babies will come on the same day and be Twin-Friends! We had a great's so fun to all be doing this together! 5 weeks and counting down...

So Funny

The other day while we were driving home Brady starting saying, 'So funny, so funny...'I thought he was just having a great time so I looked back at him...he was pulling on his cheeks and ears. Apparently this is how you make a funny face! He was so proud of himself that when we got home he asked, 'Picture for me funny?' so I took a few....

Valentines Party

Our ward play group had a great Valentine's Day party this week. The kids decorated bags, and cookies, and had a candy card exchange. Brady ran wild the entire time and played on the stage...I lost him only once! He did a wonderful job handing out his candies and loved eating the M&M's he got!

Our house is coming along great! This is the entry way, we are about 90% painted, I think they will finish today....Only a few things left to do!
This is Brady's room, the shelves are staying white, but the two walls behind that are white will be painted orange! It's pretty dang cute.
Here is our front living room. You can see the paint color better.
Pool fence is coming today, I'll send more photos after we get flooring!

bubbles & tools

I bought Brady this bubble gun for Colin's birhday, he just couldn't stand getting presents for someone else yet! He decided to chase me and shoot me with bubbles! These were taken on the run!
Brady also attacked the door with the bubble gun...that's when I sent him outside!!!

Today Brady locked the bathroom door so to get it open I took the knob off, well this kid loves tools, so when he saw me fixing it he had to help me.
