I realized today that I have been very negative, and complaining a lot lately. I came to this conclusion, after reading a good friend's blog who just lost her 3rd baby this year. I realized after reading her blog, how much I truly have to be thankful for. I also am going to try to stop complaining so much, as I know there are so many women out there who would love to have what I am blessed with. Here is a list of some of the things I am currently thankful for:

  • A healthy, strong, baby girl

  • A little boy who loves me so much

  • Waking up to Brody climbing in my bed to hug me

  • Peyton's kicks and stretches

  • Seeing Peyton's cute face on the ultrasound machine

  • The sound of her heartbeat

  • The sound of Brody breathing as he sleeps peacefully

  • The way Brody asks for a "popsynal" (popcycle) every morning when he wakes up, and when I suggest oatmeal instead, he says "yeah, oh-meal".

  • The cute way Brody says "mom"

  • The Gospel of Jesus Christ

Like I said, these are just SOME of the things I'm thankful for. The list goes on and on.

Time for another ultrasound!

Well, I go in today for yet ANOTHER ultrasound. I have been exposed to fifths disease at the elementary school and I had a strange rash pop up on my face last week. My doctor did a blood test last week to test for the disease, and today they are going to do an ultrasound to make sure that Peyton isn't anemic. Wish me luck, and I'm sure I'll have more pictures to post soon!

Trip to Washington

Nick, Brody and I recently got home from our trip to Washington. We were there for 9 wonderful days! Here are some highlights from our trip:

Brody got spoiled rotten with new toys! Here he is with his new dog.

Reagann (20 wks), me (26 wks), Jess (28 wks) at the time.
Of course there were a LOT of bubbles to be blown!
