So we are still waiting for Baby girl to come!
I still feel pretty good and am trying to enjoy the little time that I have left to spend alone with my little boy.
We are hoping she makes her appearance sometime this weekend!

Lisa took a few pictures for us on Sunday and of course they turned out great!
Thanks Lisa!

Baby Girl

Obviously we still have not decided on a name

This past week has been a crazy one!

Maddix got the flu this last weekend and I figured it was only a matter of time before I got it too! Well Monday night it hit! I was up all night, throwing up every 15-20 minutes. Being this far along pregnant and throwing up was definitely the worst! My huge ol’ belly barely let me get close enough to the toilet!

Anyway, the throwing up caused my stomach to obviously contract, which led to some heavy bleeding.

I went into the Dr the next morning just to make sure everything was fine, I was still bleeding but not as much as during the night. They checked the baby’s heartbeat, it was good. Checked me, I was dilated to a 2 ½ and my cervix is very “ripe and ready.” The midwife still wanted to make sure everything was ok so she had me do an ultrasound. I LOVE that I have been able to have so many ultrasounds this pregnancy (considering the circumstances J) Baby girl looked great, was moving great and was measuring almost on track, a little small. They estimated that she weighs about 6 lbs 11 oz.

This is a picture of her lips, nose and cheeks. Looks like she is going to have some big cheeks like Maddix!

They sent me home and told me that this little girl is ready to come and as soon as I start to have some more consistent contractions that my body is ready!

Later that night I received a call from the Dr’s office informing me that the Dr who reviewed my ultrasound wanted me to go into the hospital for further testing. They were concerned that I may have a placental abruption. This scared me to death! I went into Timpanogos hospital and they put me on the Fetal heart monitors. I stayed there for about 3 ½ hours, they ran some blood tests and determined that everything was fine. They want me to go into the office every week and do a Non Stress Test just to watch the baby and make sure everything continues to progress normally.

I am SO ready for this little girl to get here and to not be worrying everyday. She is moving like crazy everyday and I am finally nesting!

I’ll be 37 weeks tomorrow so anytime she wants to come I will be ready to go to the hospital!

Thanks to everyone who helped and has offered to help! Means more than you know!

I’ll keep you posted with any news!

Weight guesses:

Eric 6 lbs 10 oz

Nat 6 lbs 14 oz

It's my Party

This past weekend we had a birthday party for Maddix and Cohen.

The theme was “Two Totally Tubular Two Year Olds!”

We started the day off with breakfast at Magleby's Fresh, it was delicious.
By the time we got to the party Maddix was just acting a little “off.”
We had a great time at the party and thanks to everyone who came and celebrated with us! The boys are so lucky to have great family and friends!
Eric and I gave Maddix this train table and it is by far the best investment we have ever made!He was in heaven and still plays with it all day, everyday since he got it!
Eric had another awesome picture done for Maddix.
I love it!
Now I just need him to hang it in his room so it doesn’t just sit around!
By the end of the night Maddix was just not happy. By 9 pm that night we figured out why…
He got the flu and was throwing up the rest of the night and all through the morning.
Poor guy. The rest of the weekend and his birthday were no fun!
Needless to say we hope the rest of the year turns out better than his birthday!

He had his 2 year check up this week and is doing great!


Height: 34 ¾ inches 75%

Weight: 24 lbs 14 ounces 25%

He hadn’t really eaten in about 3 days, so he may actually weigh a little more

Head: 51 cm 90%

We Love you Maddix so much!
We are so lucky to be your parents and you seriously make us laugh each and every day.
We are blessed to have had you all to ourselves the last 2 years and can’t wait for this new stage in your life where you get to be a big brother!

It seems like just yesterday I held him for the first time.

This week Eric and I decided we were going to take a "Babymoon" before this little girl arrives. We left Maddix with Lisa and Cohen and headed up to Salt Lake City for the night.
We ate dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, it was delicious.
Went to the movie The Switch, could have skipped that.
Stayed the night at the Grand America, so nice
Had massages the next morning, they were amazing!
And then ordered room service and came back home.

We had such a great time spending some one on one time before this new little one arrives!

Thanks so much to Lisa who watched Maddix for us and dealt with his screaming and refusal to go to bed!
