Girl's Day

We had fun girls day on 5-22-14.
We went with my Mom, Kenadie, Kim, and Hannah up to St. George.
We went to the children's museum.
It's super cute and the kids had a lot of fun.
Afterwards we went to Café Rio for some lunch.

Summer Fun

I don't know if I'm ready for the heat.
Ready or not I know it's coming.
Guess we will have to be staying in the house, at the pool, and taking trips to cooler weather.

Crue's Blessing Day

Crue James was given a name and a blessing on May 4, 2014.
The blessing was given by his Dad.
 It was a sweet day filled with family and friends.
We had lunch at our house after sacrament meeting.

Fair 2014

Another year at the fair has come and gone!
This year the weather was really nice too.
Jessie enjoyed the rides and Cody and I enjoyed the food.
 Jessie of course had a blast on the little ponies!
We got her face painted and when we seen they had a shark option we knew it was fate for our shark obsessed girl!

The Big Sister

Jessie has really surprised me with how well she has adjusted to having a baby around the house.
She really loves him and doesn't like when people say that they are going to take him home.
He is her baby and she loves him.
She really enjoys holding him and asks to do so a lot.
I hope they will always be close and love each other.

Crue's Birth Story

*35 week appointment: Dr. did strep B test and checked my cervix. I am dilated 2cm and 50% effaced.
*36 week appointment: I am dilated 3cm and 75% effaced.
*37 week appointment: Everything is still the same.
*38 week appointment: Oh.. It's still the same.
*39 week appointment: Still 3cm and 80% effaced. My Dr. scheduled an induction for the following Tuesday (3.25.14) but says he thinks I'm getting close to going into labor on my own.
Friday March 21, 2014: We had a pretty chill day at home. It's Cody day off so we went on a rzr ride to the park and let Jessie play. On the way back home I asked Cody if he was trying to kill me with all the bumps he was hitting. That evening we also went on a pretty good walk.
Before bed I wasn't really feeling well but didn't really think anything was going to happen that night. We went to bed and I was having a hard time falling asleep.
Around 1 am I got my first lovely contraction as I was starting to fall asleep. Of course it completely woke me up and I sat and waited for another one to follow. What do ya know.. 10 minutes later there was another one. I tried to wake Cody up but he didn't wanna wake. I waited for another and then woke him up. I was worried I was being crazy and this wasn't the real thing. Cody wanted to take a shower so he hopped in. By this point I knew we needed to go. Cody called his Mom and she came over to stay with Jessie.
1:50 am: We were pulling out of the valley heading to St. George. Contractions were now 6 minutes apart but weren't too strong yet. Blake Shelton came on the radio and I tried to focus on the music and just breathe.
Cody drove well over the speed limit and the drive wasn't too bad.
We got to the hospital and got asked all 43,289 questions they ask before even checking your cervix. The nurse finally checked me and said..
"Oh wow.. You're 7cm. Did you want an epidural?"
I of couse did. They moved me to a room got my iv in (after 3 blown veins.. Ouch!) and called the medicine man. He was in the room next door and would be there shortly.
I was completely panicked. I was so scared I wasn't going to be able to get the epidural. My contractions were still 6 minutes apart so I was doing ok but really wanted the juice for the delivery.
He came and did wonderfully. My legs went warm and numb and I didn't feel another contraction.
My nurse checked my again and I was 9+ cm dilated so she went and called my Dr. and he came and broke my water. I was then prepped for labor and started pushing when a contraction came. Two contractions later and Baby Boy was here. He had the cord wrapped around his neck 3 times!!
It was seriously such a quick labor and delivery.
I am so grateful that everything went well and we have a super sweet healthy boy.
We are so blessed.

34 Week Bumpdate

*Picture taken at 32 weeks.
I've been feeling pretty good!
*Baby is the size of a cantaloupe. Actually he is bigger. At my last appointment I measured two weeks ahead. So do I get to have him early?? Noooo.... Says Mr. Doc. I'll probably just have a bigger baby. Oh great..
*I haven't been craving anything too bizarre. Mostly normal foods. Although last week at church I really wanted a sausage, egg, grilled cheese. I've never actually eaten one of these, but it was sure good on Monday for dinner!
*I haven't really let myself get the room ready but I've done a few small things like hang up some wall décor and curtains. I'll wait a couple more weeks before washing his clothes and getting his bedding all set up.
*Naming a child is hard. We have had a name for a boy picked out since we were engaged. But trying to figure out a middle name and questions said name has been making me a bit crazy.
*Um. I have to push out a child in like 6ish weeks. Can I freak out now? Oh wait. I've done that. I really can't think about it too much or panic sets in. Can't he just stay in there? It's scary to me that he has to come out somehow. Getting him from belly to hands is causing me some meltdowns. I know I know. I've done it before, I should know what to expect.. That's the problem. I DO know what to expect. My birth plan? Drugs ASAP. I'm a woos.
*I'm really not too nervous about taking care of two kiddies. I probably should be more worried about it than I am. But I'm excited to have two and see them interact. Jessie still talks about the baby and says his name. I hope she likes him when he comes.
*I go to the doc this week and then we start our weekly visits from here on out. Eekkk. I really love going to the doc and am sad that my pregnancy is almost over and I won't get to see the doc anymore. He's awesome. Ok and maybe I'm a little sad I won't have my jimmy john's/swig at least once a month guarantee.
*Cody had been awesome like usual. He wants me to rest and relax most of the time and will rub, scratch, and said he'd even help me shave if needed. (Don't worry we haven't gotten to that point.. yet.)
*I haven't been a crazy nester. Just a few small projects here and there and I've kept up on my housework and laundry, but no scrubbing the tile with a toothbrush thus far.

Grammy Lee's Birthday

My mom had a birthday last week.
J and I (Cody had a merit badge powwow) went over to my parents for dinner and cake and icecream!
We sure are lucky to have her in our life!
Love ya Mom!

Shark Reef

Jessie has been loving sharks.
She talks about them a lot.
So we decided to take her to the shark reef at the mandalay bay in Vegas.
 She loved looking at all the fish and even touching the stingray.
(More like just playing in the water)
After about 30 minutes she started to get crazy so we weren't there long but she had fun.
We went to famous daves afterwards for some bbq!
And we may of stopped at krispie cream too.
It was a fun outing!
*dang picture wouldn't turn

Our New Toy

Cody has been wanting this new toy for some time now.
I finally talked him into it.;)
We have loved having it and enjoy lots of rides.
 J has her own seat in the back which makes rides super nice!

Grandma Hardy's Birthday

Jessie's Grandma Cindy had a birthday last month!
We had a few people over for some cake and ice cream.
We sure do love her!

Happy Helper

Jessie has been loving to help lately.
She loves doing the laundry and helping me put stuff from washer to dryer.
She really loves to help do the dishes too.
She isn't really too much of a help but she loves to do it so I let her.

New Years!

This year for New Years we decided to have a quiet new years at home.
We made some Mexican food and homemade reeses.
 J was asleep by 10.
Cody and I stayed up and watched a couple episodes of Breaking Bad on netfix and were in bed by 12:15.
I'm really excited for this year and to see what it has in store for us.
We can't wait to meet baby #2!
Happy (late) New Years!
