It had me scared for a second.

I had my 2nd doctor's appointment today. It wasn't a big deal, just checking to make sure that everything is still going ok. When the doctor tried to find the baby's heartbeat, he couldn't find it. It started to scare me the more he looked for it. Finally he just decided to give me another ultrasound. He found it right away. It was strong, and the baby looked really good. It was moving around like crazy. I could see it move it's little hand up to it's head and rub it's head. It was amazing! It totally made my day!

Our house hasn't sold yet, but we have had a ton of people come and look through it. We have had three different people say they wanted to put in an offer, but we haven't seen anything. I am getting anxious for it to sell, but I need to learn to be patient. The more I think about our new house, the sooner I want to move and get this all done with. Oh well, when the time is right it will happen.

Well that is about it for now. Time to go take my afternoon nap!

A few funny things that my kids have said lately.

"Mommy is there a door that goes to space?"

"Do we have sticks in us to hold us up?"

"I will like your baby when it gets here."

While eating chicken for dinner princess bites her finger then she starts to cry that "The chicken bit my finger."

"My body is special that is why daddy is taking me to see race cars."

"Princesses don't have to go to school."

Sorry for being gone so much. Things started to get a little crazy around here. Little dude loves school and is learning so much. I can actually see a change in his behavior which is good. He seems to be a little nicer to his sister.

Princess loves to have time to play by herself or with mommy. It has been fun. We have never really had her and me time before. She always gets excited when little dude comes home though.

The hubby might be getting a promotion after all. They talked to him about it today and will find out in the next couple of weeks. I hope that it works out for his sake he deserves it!

We have also put our house up for sale. With a new baby coming we have decided that we need more room. We also have been here for 5 years and feel that the way that the market is going it is time to find something that we can be in until the kids are out of school. We did find something and we put an offer on. We found out today that they accepted our offer and the house is ours. Well, as long as our house sells first. There has been 5 different people look at it since Friday when we put it on the market. I hope it goes fast. We will see. In the mean time, it has been a little hard keeping the house spotless, but good for me. I will keep you all updated.

One final thing, I am feeling so much better! I am now 12 weeks along and I think that feeling sick is behind me. As long as I stay away from Spaghetti and Pizza! YUCK!

A letter to my "Little Dude"

My dear "Little Dude",

While watching you from across the room I can see how much you have learned and see how much you have grown in such a short time. I can't believe how fast the last 3 1/2 years have gone by.

I remember the first time I saw your face, I couldn't hold back the tears! You were so beautiful and so innocent. That moment changed my life forever. I couldn't believe you were mine. That I was going to take you home and do my very best to teach you everything that I know and more. It almost didn't seem real, but then I would take one look at you and see how much you look like your daddy and know that you were here to stay!

I am writing you a letter today because I saw something in your eyes today that I never want to forget! And I hope that someday you will be able to read this, then look in the mirror and see what I saw today. Putting it into words will be really hard for me to do because that will mean that I have to admit that you are not going to be little forever. I saw a little boy that for 3 1/2 years has been so dependent on his mommy and daddy that is now excited and eager for a new beginning with stepping into the world on your own and facing the challenges that are ahead. That is a big step for a 3 year old, but the excitement and confidence in your eyes would make anyone think that tomorrow morning you will be starting college or a new job. We all know your not, you are just starting Pre-school, but that is a big deal!

School can be challenging for many people. Some people take it for granted, and some people don't take it seriously at all and just don't care. I hope that this excitement that you have to learn and grow will never fade. I hope and pray that knowledge is always just as important to you as it is tonight.

Tonight your daddy made you a big promise. One that has a lot of meaning, and that will take you many years to understand. He gave you what is called a "Father's Blessing". In our church your daddy holds the priesthood and is able to give blessings. When you asked me why it was important I told you because in the blessing you get to hear what our Heavenly Father wants you to know. He blessed you that you will have fun learning, and that you will be kind and that those around you will be kind. He blessed you that you will learn and that you will grow and that you will feel the love of your family and your Heavenly Father always. What great blessings to have! I know that with your faith and with your love and hard work you will see the great importance of this wonderful Father's Blessing that daddy gave you. His big promise to you is that every year when you start school he will give you one. This will always help you to have more strength even when you feel that it is really hard.

I can't believe how fast you are growing up! Your daddy and I love you so much! I think that the only way you will ever truly know how much is the day that you will be able to watch your own kids grow. We are very proud of you and the things that you do everyday! You are a very loving little boy, with so much to give! Be strong! Know that your daddy and I are always here for you and no matter what happens we will always be by your side!

As you say to me every day " I love you so much and I think you are a cutie pie!"

Love, Mommy

Just a quick post.

I have a few minutes and I am feeling a little better so I thought that I better sit down and type something. My appointment went great! I am officially due April 2nd. That makes me about 10 weeks along.

I am starting to feel better and I have been able to do a few things. I shot a wedding Friday night and then another wedding and reception on Saturday. They went good, but wore me out. It is the most I have worked since I found out that I was pregnant. Thank goodness wedding season is almost over. Just a few more big weddings and then I can relax again. Dang I just feel lazy!

That is about all the time and thoughts that I have for now. Sorry nothing big and exciting, but I need to go entertain the kids before they start knocking down walls.
