We're having a baby!! I wasn't going to post this yet, but I'm so bad at keeping secrets! We are due in the Springtime. I can't wait to have a spring baby, I have two summer babies, so I'm so excited to be able to miss the summer entirely this time around. I can't wait to have a newborn again. I love that stage! I just love being a mom so much! Here's a little poem that we came up with to tell the Grandparents (I blocking out my actual due date in case there's any crazies that are reading my blog)

I'm number 3 and I'm on my way
Pink or blue, I can't say
but I'll be here soon,*** is the day
I can't wait to meet you and I can't wait to play!
Love, Baby Page

We wrote it in crayons with some letters backward for my parents to read and Alex read it over the web cam to Adam's parents! This will be my parents 20th grandchild and Adam's parent's 3rd!

We are thrilled, but we're still cautious! The other day, some of you know that I posted on facebook that I was worried about something. Well, I went in for emergency oral surgery because I had a bad infection in my toothe and I had to get it taken out. Well, I'm still in my first trimester and they don't usually do any dental work until you're in your second trimester. Well, I was assured that everything they were using and everything I would be taking was safe. Two days later, I started bleeding pretty heavily and thought I was miscarrying. I went to the Dr. and thankfully, they were able to find the heartbeat. I've seen the heartbeat one more time since then, and I go back in two weeks. So we're praying everything goes okay and that this little one will actually come to our family! Cross your fingers and I'll keep you posted!!

Bye bye, baba!

I am happy to say that Brayden has been off of the bottle for about a month now. He just turned two, so I'd say that's not too bad, right? For a while, the only time he would have it was at nap time and bed time (with water) and in the car if we were going to be driving for a while. Well, he started biting holes in the nipples and I was like, I am not going to keep buying packages of nipples, so it was time! He wasn't happy at first, but now he's forgotten all about them. If he sees another baby holding one, he'll reach for it and act kind of sad, but then he'll forget about it. This is such a big milestone for my little guy and it just goes to show that he's not a baby anymore!! :( Now we just need to decide when to get rid of the binky! I have a feeling that one's going to be a lot harder!

My experience tonight...

Okay, some of you know from facebook that I had an experience tonight that, I feel, has changed my life!! I'm not sure why it has affected me so deeply, but I'm really trying hard to hold the emotion back as I type this! I met a woman tonight that is a burn victim! I don't know how it happened, I didn't ask, but almost every inch of her body is covered in scars! She is missing all of her fingers on one hand and on the other, she just has two stubs left from her index finger and middle finger. She has no nose and no lips. I could tell that she had applied lipstick to where her lips would have been!! I cannot fathom the amount of pain that she must have gone through and what a long road her recovery must have been and having to live with a constant reminder of the awful event, whatever it was, every time she looks in the mirror! I didn't know her at all before her accident, but someone I know said she knew here and said that she was absolutely beautiful! I still feel like she is beautiful and I really hope she feels that way too! I just burst into tears after meeting her because how often have I felt so critical of myself because I had a zit or because I've gained some weight or because of the stretch marks I got because of being pregnant!! None of that matters to me anymore! In that split second I decided that I love myself no matter what and I think that I am pretty great no matter what my size or whether I have makeup on or not! I forgot to mention that this woman was so upbeat and positive and seems to have taken this trial and this burden that she has been given and made the best of it! Why can't I be that way too? She is not married, and I'm sad to think that she may never be because no one will be able to get past the outside appearance that she now has and see what's inside! I am so grateful to have such an amazing husband and I never want to take him for granted! I am so grateful right now especially of the knowledge that I have of the gospel that we will be resurrected! I can't wait for this woman's resurrection! How amazing it will be for her to let go of that earthly pain that she has had to deal with for so long! Gosh, I am so emotional over this! I just feel like her spirit must be pretty special for the Lord to feel like she would be able to handle this sort of burden! I feel so blessed in my life! I have trials and I know I will have many more, but I know that the Lord wont give me anything that I can't handle! Anyway, I hope that this post has touched some of you the same way that having this experience has touched me! We are all daughters of God and we are BEAUTIFUL no matter what!!

Happy 4th Anniversary!! (Yesterday)

Yesterday Adam and I celebrated our 4th anniversary! May 21st 2005 we were married in the Salt Lake temple and it was the most beautiful day!! It has gone by so fast. He is seriously the greatest thing that has ever happened to me and I feel more in love with him now than ever!! I just wanted him to know how much I appreciate everything he does for me and our family. He works so hard and sacrifices so much! He was willing to become an instant Daddy to Alex when we got married and he's done such a great job! We're so lucky to have him in our lives and now we have our sweet baby Brayden too!! I'm looking forward to the many years we have together and what the future holds for us and our family! I love you so much!! You're the BEST!

Crazy hair day...

Alex had crazy hair and wear your favorite sports shirt day the other day at school! He wanted a mo hawk really bad and he's wearing his soccer jersey that matches Adam's that Adam bought him on his last business trip to New York! Isn't he handsome! He's getting too big, too fast!

I didn't even realize that you can see Brayden in the background, on the couch! Cute!

Messy Baby...

For your viewing pleasure, here are a bunch of shots of my messy, messy baby! He refuses to let me help him eat, he has to feed himself! So needless to say, most of it ends up on the floor, in his hair, etc.! Could he be any cuter?? I don't think so!
