It's a Boy

We are having another boy! I had my 20 week ultrasound today. I knew it was a boy, so I was not shocked at all. He is so cute and sweet, and I am so excited! We have not picked out a name yet but have about 4 or 5 that we like. Boys names are easy for us. This has been my easiest pregnancy by far. I didn't even know I was pregnant for a while. We where not planning this, and I did not know if I could handle being pregnant again. When I found out it was really hard on me because I felt like I haven't even recovered from Emma yet. I felt very overwhelmed at the time. Seeing him today I got so excited. I feel like our family is going to be complete, and I am glad he will be close in age to all of his siblings. Looking at him today he seems very calm and sweet! Heavenly Father knew if I was going to have another one it needed to be easier on me.I think his chin looks a little like Ben's and he has big lips like Emma.

Emma is 14 months old

Emma has learned and changed a lot in the last month. She is such a funny little thing. Her personality is really coming out now. Emma still will not officially walk, when she thinks you are not looking she walks. She likes to walk around pushing chairs. Emma is also a climber. I will leave the room and come back and she will be on a table standing at a chair at the counter on the fireplace, wherever she can get to. Emma likes to do things that are more dangerous and harder than walking. Emma will also walk if she is on an unstable surface like a bed of couch. Emma loves her brothers. When she gets up in the morning and sees Ammon and Gid she squeals and laughs just to see them. Emma likes to stand at the toy basket and throw everything out one by one over head like she is looking for something specific. She is spoiled by attention and knows she has nine people at her beckon call, if she wants anything. She is starting to ramble like she is trying to talk. She can say Hi, mom, and dad. Emma has eight teeth, and loves to eat anything and all day long. Emma loves her binkie and the tags on her little angel pigs and hippo. She has to hold the tags and have her binkie in her mouth to go to sleep.


This year Nanny and Papa flew in Saturday night, so they where able to be here for Halloween. We went to our wards trunk or treat Saturday night and on Halloween we celebrated Gid's bday with some friends from our ward for a Halloween Sunday dinner. It was a fun party! I love Halloween, the food and costumes and parties it just means the holiday season is on it's way. Emma was a little piggy, Ammon was Elmo, Gid and Beans wanted to do a repeat of last year Elephant and Woody, Sol was Iron Man, Sim was a gorilla, and I am not sure what Chase and Hannah where, they came up with theirs all on there own.

Gid's 5th Birthday

Giddy turned five! I cannot believe he is a five year old and will be going to school next year. He has really become a big help this year now that he is the big guy at home. He loves his little sister more than anything. He loves to go and get her up in the morning. He calls her little lades. Giddy got a Buzz light year bike, legos and silly bands. He had a great day. It was the perfect day, it was a beautiful sunny day, so he got to actually test out his bike. He chose for Chase and I to take him to Triple X for his Bday dinner. Gid is such a happy kid. He is very strong. He loves to wrestle and tackle even his eldest brothers. He has no fear. Yet he is soft and sweet, he loves his buster(blankie) and his thumb. Gideon loves back scratches especially from his nanny. He is a bit crazy. He likes to have fun and be wild.


Now that Hannah is in middle school she decided she wanted to try some sports. Hannah did volleyball and loved it. She had so much fun. Turns out she is a pretty good athlete. I don't know why I never thought of putting her in sports, but she has really enjoyed it.
