Finally...an update!!

So I guess life moves on whether you are feeling up to it or not! The past 7 weeks (ugh..is that all it's been??) I have been feeling so sick all day long. I have to give major props to my husband who has really stepped up and taken over everything while I lay around feeling sick. He is great! Even though I've been feeling terrible and was supposed to be taking it easy, we have still managed to do a few fun things as a family. If you have a while there's quite a few new posts. We hope you are all doing well and hopefully I am on the uphill now. Wouldn't that be fabulous!!

Baby Update!

Well, some of you may know I have been having a few complications with my pregnancy. On top of being sick and regular pregnancy stresses, we have ha d a lot to worry about. I went to another doctor's appointment yesterday and they doctor said the baby looks fine. Perfect, actually. The baby was moving around and it was GREAT to see!! We have been so blessed through all this worry. I know that my Heavenly Father has heard our prayers. So, so far so good. I am now 13 weeks so hopefully I'll be feeling much better soon. And things can settle down for a little while.
Here's baby yesterday at 13 weeks 2 days. Growing so much. It looks just like a baby instead of a bean!! So fun!


We spent Easter at my parent's house. The Easter Bunny visited our house a little early so we didn't have to drag all of that up with us :) We had a fun time. Dying eggs, egg hunts, good food, family, playing big bubbles outside. Makena always makes out with so much stuff. What a lucky girl! Here's a sample of the weekend fun. And no, I didn't eve take a picture of Makena in her Easter dress. How lame! I know.

The Bubble Blower

Makena's FAVORITE thing to do lately is blow bubbles. I think she'd do it all day long if someone would do it with her. She loves to play, but always needs a friend. Which can get old for me sometimes :) She loves to ask my brother as soon as they walk in the door and he is nice enough to play with her. She loves her Uncle Jeff. I took lots of pictures this day and had to narrow a lot. She is just getting too big too fast. She is a fun girl to be around!


We went to the zoo a few weekends ago because our passes expire soon. I have been feeling pretty sick still so we went just for a few hours. Makena loved it and it was a beautiful day. It made us miss living in San Diego!! We're sad our passes are going to expire, but we'll be making up for it with our Disneyland passes!


I took Makena to Disneyland on St. Patrick's Day. We met my brother and his son Logan there. Since Makena is free I got a season pass and I am so excited to be able to use it. She loved it. She still talks about it every day. She loved the jungle cruise, dumbo, the carousel "horsey ride". She wasn't so sure about the pooh ride, and...it's a small world. That's really scary :)But overall, she loved it and we can't wait to go back and take Tyler with us.

Holding Hands in Line for Small World-They totally did this on their own and it was SO cute!


After the Pooh ride-which she hid on the whole time :)
