Last night we decided to take all three kids to go see Rango. We had heard a little about it but it looked like a fairly good movie. We had to brave taking them to the 9:40pm showing because Travis didn't get off work until 8:00pm. Well, I would advise not taking your young ones to go see it due to the amount of bad words. I was shocked. Especially since it was only rated PG. Over all it was an ok movie but I wished I could edit out those words. The kids all did really well staying up that late. And it was especially nice when they slept in until 10:00am

Mikayla's Baptism

I can't believe Mikayla is 8! She started the count down to her Birthday the first part of January and as it got closer she grew more excited and I could also sense some anxiety. But we didn't focus on that. Not only was it going to be her Birthday but she was also going to be baptized on her Birthday. A new dress she picked out as well as eating her favorite food...can't beat that. The morning of her Birthday she woke before the sun came up and had a hard time going back to sleep but eventually did. She still got up before it was time so I told her she could go watch a cartoon before getting ready for school. She was happy about that because she never gets to watch tv before school. Since her Birthday was on a Friday she came home early from school because every Friday is a short day. She spent the early afternoon playing with friends and then came home to get dressed and ready to go out to dinner and then head over to the church for the baptism. We ate ... sushi ... her favorite. As the night came I could still see a panic in her and realized why. She doesn't do well with water and to be baptized you have to go all the way under. She was stressing so much about it I think it may have been hard for her to enjoy her day. The time had come and after seeing all her friends come to watch her and her uncle giving a talk it was time to go in the font. Let's just say the first time she had a stubborn toe that didn't want to go under. Travis said before she was breathing really heavy and he knew the second time her was going to have to give her a lot of help...push. The second time was the charm and then she could relax and enjoy the rest of the night. What a wonderful day it was. Our wish for our beautiful daughter is to always remember that day and how special she felt. To always stand for what is right and do her best in all things. We love you Mikayla! You are so talented and sweet. Happy Birthday Princess!

Way too long

I has been crazy the last couple months and since messing up my blog background and layout I have pushed it to the back of my mind. It wasn't until I ran into an old friend that I realized I really need to update. So after almost six months of silence I have decided today it ends.

Well, I obviously had my baby and she was born three weeks early via c-section. We were really excited to have the first August birthday on both sides of the family but she decided that wasn't the month She wanted and came July 30th. My labor with her was worse than with the other two. I was having hard contractions for a couple days before I finally went into the hospital. Once I got there and the nurses realized it was the real deal I was told I had to wait another 4 hours before they could do the c-section, because I had eaten breakfast. If that was the worst news I would be ok. However, I was told I had to stay in bed and I couldn't even drink water. She was face up which made back labor intense and laying in bed extremely difficult. It was also summer and I was so overheated and thirsty. When begging the nurse for maybe just some ice she said she could give me one piece...of the pellet ice. :( After waiting for several hours they took me back for my spinal and delivery. It seemed to go by really fast. I just remember laying there and then hearing the suction and then the cries of a baby. I couldn't help but cry. After a miscarriage, almost a year of trying to get pregnant and a couple scares during the first part of my pregnancy she was finally here. We were shocked that she weighed more than both the other kids, 7 lbs. 5.5 oz.
We are proud to introduce you to our beautiful little girl

Baby on the Move

This video was taken two weeks ago when I was 25 weeks pregnant. I thought it would be fun to show her moving around. I put the remote on my stomach so the movement can be seen better. I am grateful she is active during the day :) maybe it will stay the same and I wont have to worry about sleepless nights. LOL

No name picked yet. Well, we have her middle name but not a first name. I have a long list but non of them "stand out" as Travis says. One of these days, hopefully soon, she will have a name :)
