The PREGNANCY CLUB! We're excited to announce that we are having another baby! I am almost 8 weeks along and I saw the little bean this week with its strong heartbeat. I know TONS of people who are pregnant right now, so that should be fun to be part of the club, again. I have been feeling major nauseuos for a few weeks now and I can't stand it, but it's for a great little cause. And I tell myself every week that I am a week closer. We are a little scared about having a second baby, but know it's time. And Makena asks to see "the baby"- my belly-all the time and talks to it. It's too cute. She even told me the other night that it's a sister baby...so I guess we'll see. We are VERY excited and can't wait until OCTOBER to meet the little one. (That seems oh so far away!!)
This last Saturday we had a family party for Makena's birthday. It was beach themed (since hopefully all of you know that Makena is a beautiful beach in Hawaii). We had great food and then we all headed to Huntington Beach to spend some time there. It was a BEAUTIFUL day. We couldn't have asked for better weather and it was just a fun time! I was WORN out from doing everything but it was a good time. We had yummy Mexican food and I made "ocean" cupcakes. Makena racked up ion the presents, and I decided that next year-Chuck E. Cheese it is :) So hear are some of the pictures from the partay!! Wish we could have invited everyone, but the little house doesn't constitute for a giant party. But we love you all!
Opening up the loot! She's a lucky girl and got some Great gifts-that are still ALL over my house! Listening to Happy Birthday! My cupcake creations-they looked better in person, I swear :)
Digging in like they were going out of style! She ate the whole cupcake like she was in a pie eating contest
Two weeks ago we were able to go to the Redlands temple where my mother-in-law went through for the first time. It wsa a busy day at the temple, but it was great. Thanks to my mom for watching Makena all day so we could go. It was a beautiful day-I wish my wedding day there would have been so nice :) We are so happy for her and the choice to go there. It was a great day!
My beautiful little girl turned 2 today! I have no idea where the time has gone, but I know it's been fabulous-SO HARD, but SO rewarding. She is so smart and sensitive ( which can also be a bad thing). She loves learning new things and she is just the funnest little girl to be around. I have LOTS of pictures to post from her party, and all things going on, but I will do that soon as I am still trying to recover from the day :) I just want her to know that I LOVE HER SO MUCH and couldn't have picked a better girl for my daughter. She's the best. HAPPY BIRTHDAY NENNY!!!!!
