Watermelon Tummy

Happy Memorial Day. What is something almost everyone has on Memorial Day?… Watermelon. Well, before we cut it up, we decided to show how close the sizes are of the watermelon and my stomach. Yikes. I think he might be well done by the time he comes out. Sorry the picture is a little blurry.

Baby’s Room

We have finally gotten the baby’s room ready. When we were thinking of how to decorate the room, Brian came up with the winning idea. He thought we should do a Curious George theme. Not only is it cute for a boy but there is a lot of meaning for our son. Brian’s middle name is George, due to tradition in his family. Now our son will be the fourth generation to carry that name. All the more reason to have a Curious George room right?.

Well here are some pictures of the room. The poster above the changing table was fun to make. Megan Sagers gave me the idea. It was my first time being somewhat crafty so of course it could look better but we thought the whole effect of the room turned out well. Let me know what you think.

Kids are fun

First off, Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers.

Today at church Brian and I were sitting in our normal spot with our Aunt Natalie (weird to call her that) and her two kids Parker and Olivia. Parker is about 2 and a half and always keeps us laughing with his awesome personality. Well, today in sacrament, I told him he could feel the baby in my tummy. At first he was extremely nervous and wouldn’t try. After seeing Brian and Natalie rub my stomach he felt a little better. He swiped his hand across my belly really fast. Then he thought it was so neat he kept feeling it and saying “Can I see, can I see?” He then started softly tickling my legs all the way up to my belly and then he would rub it real fast and start over again. Boy, aren’t kids just so fun?!

Baby Shower

Yesterday my mom’s best friend, Tina, threw a baby shower for me. She did a great job and it was a lot of fun. Here are a few pictures:
The first is my mom, Tina, and me; the second is the grandmother’s excluding Grandma Carol who is in Utah, and the third one was the start of many wonderful gifts. Thank you everyone.

The sweetest thing

Any of you who know Brian, knows that he is good with putting his feelings down in words (poems or songs).

While I was taking a nice little nap, he decided to write a poem to our unborn son and called it “If I Could Have One Look At You”. I loved it so much and I thought I would share it with all of you to see how excited he is to have this little boy. He is going to be such a great father.

“If I could have one look at you it sure would be a treat
I’d sit here in anticipation of the time that we would meet
I would count your fingers and put a number on your toes
See if you have dad’s black hair, as that’s what we suppose

I think I’d see a smile that could never be outdone
A giggle would come next as you are your mother’s son
So many things we’d know, every feature, every trait
Just one little look would sure help ease the wait

But if I could gaze at you, you could surely see me too
You’d see that I am learning and to me this all is new
You’d wonder if you’re ready to teach us all the ways
Perhaps you would be happy that you’re safe a few more days

So maybe it is better if we both take time to grow
Show a little patience for the chance to say hello
If I could have one look at you I sure would love the sight
But God knew all along that the timing is just right”
