I did it...

I didn't find out the gender! The ultrasound went great and the baby looked healthy and was the right size and everything. The ultrasound guy was really good and didn't give the gender away and told me not to look when he thought that I might see.

My family is in town so I probably won't post very often for the next week or so, but I thought I would just let you all know I stayed strong and didn't find out the gender. :)

The Big Question

So tomorrow I have my 20 week ultrasound...I have been planning all along since I found out I was pregnant to not find out the gender this time around. I already have one boy and one girl, so it would be ok not to know until d-day.

Then just in the past day or two I have been on the fence about it...I want to make some baby stuff, but if I don't know the gender, I will either have to guess, or make a boy and a girl one of whatever I'm making.

What do you guys think? Should I find out?

Family pictures

My friend Amanda took some family pictures for us a few days ago and I love them! The kids were not very cooperative but she still managed to get some awesome shots. Here are a few of my faves.






Like I said...these are just a FEW of my favorites. I love all of the ones she gave me so far. They are awesome.

And on a completely unrelated note...I passed the 100th sale mark on my etsy shop! Hooray. Time to restock the shop. :)

Guess who found their belly button??

He learned this about a week ago...I have been trying for weeks to teach him where his nose is...and he learned belly button after I showed him once. Figures!

Dress up

Sadie brought out her dress up box this morning. We hadn't had it out in a while because we keep it under Zac's crib...so it gets forgotten about. But this morning she pulled it out and we were playing dress up. Let's see what happened!



Sadie discovered care bears and there was this huge one at our drop and swap activity so she got to bring it home. Lucky us...ha ha. But we had some fun dressing her up!


No...we didn't force him to wear this. He would get mad if we wouldn't put it on him. He always chooses to wear the yellow skirt. So funny.


He would put an accessory on like a hat or sunglasses and then go sit by Sadie for another picture. It was funny.


Cheese.


The pink handkerchief is also another of his favorites.


Sadie looking cute.


Zac just loves his sister. And he loves dress up. I guess it is time to get some boy dress up stuff. :)

PS. This is my 300th post. I feel like I should celebrate of something. Hooray!

Some videos

Zac knows three signs. Please, thank you and more. He mostly just says please for everything, but I did get all of the signs on video. Have a look.

Zac has also learned how to give hugs. And he loves to do it when he is in a good mood. And Sadie loves it too.

And this is why we love to get packages from the UPS man. My most favorite part about this video is how she counts every time before she tries to pop the air packaging. ha ha

Day at the water park

About a week ago while Rob was out of town, I needed to find something to do on Saturday to keep all of us occupied. So I called Evan to see if him and his family wanted to come to the water park with us. They said yes and so we all went. It was tons of fun. The kids had a blast running through the water, or just standing there and hitting it every time it came out of the ground. :) it was a really fun outing and we even went back to the park the next week. So fun. And the best part is, IT IS FREE!!!

Here are some pictures...Sorry they are always out of order.


The kids getting all dried off.


Zac was all smiles.


Sadie...you couldn't wipe that smile off of her face. Oh wait, yes I could. All I had to say was "time to go!" ha ha


She was non stop. She ran all around and loved every minute of it.


This picture really shows how happy she was!

I think Zac got a squirt in the face...when the water went down, he would squat down and look for it. Then it would come back up and hit him. That happened to Calvin a lot too. They both took it very well!


Cousins playing together!


At first, Zac was a little skeptical. He had just woken up from his nap...but after a while he warmed up to it and loved it.


Calvin loved to just hit the water with his hand. It was so cute.

Thanks guys for going with me! Next time we will have to go to the one in Highland!

Fourth of July

Today is the fourth of July, but we really celebrated our holiday here on Saturday. We started off the day by going to see the hot air balloons launch off in Provo. It is really neat. You go to this big field and can walk around right next to all of the balloons as they are filling up and then you get to watch them all launch into the sky. Sadie and Zac really enjoyed it and so did we. Zac just kept saying "ball ball ball" it was pretty cute. Then we get to wait for the balloons to come back and try to throw a bean bag at a target on the ground and try to pop balloons with a big spear thing. Unfortunately, we only saw two or three balloons come back...I guess the air wasn't cooperating! ha ha. But it was really cool and I am sure we will do this again.

While we were sitting on our blankets eating muffins, Shanna said something about the fireworks show which we thought was on the actual fourth of July. She said "you know the fireworks are tonight right??" Um. We didn't. So then we had to plan our day around that. We made sure the kids got good naps and around their bedtime, we left to go see the fireworks. It was tons of fun, but I could tell Sadie was getting really tired. I asked her if she was tired and she said "yes, I want to go home and sleep in my bed." It was only about 8:45. Still an hour and fifteen minutes away from the fireworks. Oh boy. So I made a little bed for her on our blankets and she promptly went to sleep. When she would wake up occasionally, I would ask her if she wanted me to wake her up for the fireworks. She said no because they were too loud. So she slept through the whole show. Zac saw them though. It was fun to be with friends for the evening.




Our group right before it got dark outside.


Family picture. Yikes...didn't realize I looked so terrible...remember people, I got up at 5:30 that morning!


Balloons!


I thought I had to document Darth Vador in the air. He got up and flew over the power lines and then landed across the street in a field. That was it for him. ha ha


I think I like the pig the best. I don't know why...just because.

Just chillin. Eating muffins.


The kids looking at the balloons. So cute.


I just think this picture is funny because of the smokey bear balloon in the background. His nose is very saggy. Oh and Sadie is cute too!



Daddy and the kids.


Mommy and the kids right when we got there...it was so fun to see them fill up the balloons.

Anyway, it was a very fun day so today we kind of took it easy and just hung out at home. I am so grateful to live in this country where I can be free. I am grateful to those serving in the military. Happy Fourth of July!
