Time to start the blog up again! Sorry it's been SO long!

I just realized that it has been over a year since I last updated our blog (sorry!). This past year has been a whirlwind between me working, Jax going to "school", and Scotty starting a new job.

I promise to keep up again with this pregnancy so that our friends and family can keep up to date with the latest news from us! :)

So...we will start with....

IT'S A GIRL!!! Jax got his wish for a "baby grill". :) He has decided that we will be naming her "Layla Potata", I wonder how much our little girl would appreciate that name as an adult? :)

This pregnancy has been VERY different from when I was pregnant with Jax. I really didn't have any morning sickness and have felt really good so far. I am starting to have some sleep issues between not being able to get comfortable and having a ton of dreams every night but that's about it so far.

I have been feeling our little girl move around for about 6 weeks now, although she is way "lazier" than Jax ever was. I feel small movements throughout the day but nothing to dramatic so far.

We are very exciting to going down this journey again and can't wait for July to get here so that we can meet our little girl and introduce Jax to his little sister. :)

The BIG BOY bed!

Introducing Jax's BIG BOY bed!!!

In Jax's words "FIRETRUCK!!!!"


Grandma Debbie bought this bed for Jax when he was only a few months old and it's been sitting in boxes in her garage for almost two years now! For Jax's 2nd Birthday we decided it was time for the crib to go. Grandpa Harlan and Daddy spent about 3 hours building the bed...I don't think I have ever seen so many boxes and pieces for ONE bed!

Our BIG boy! :)

Happy 2nd Birthday Jax!

Happy 2nd Birthday baby boy!

Wow...two years? I have no idea where that time has gone. It seems like just yesterday that we were bringing our little 10.6 pound baby home from the hospital. :)

In the past two years Scott and I have learned a whole new level of love (and patience!). We feel so incredibly blessed to have such a sweet, funny, energetic, smart, and adventureous little boy.

Cinnamon Rolls for the Birthday Boy!

Santa 2010 :)

Mom, Scotty and I took Jax to see Santa today at Washington Square! :) Jax loved Santa...he kept looking at him, smiling, and then would say "You're funny!" (which is one of his favorite lines to these days). This will be Jax's 2nd Christmas and we are so excited this year. He loves all the lights on the tree, is trying to open the wrapped presents, and says "Ho, Ho, Ho" when he sees anything with Santa on it. So.cute!
