Labor Day

For Labor Day this year me and Brookie went with my parents up to Strawberry. I normally don't really look forward to camping because Brookie won't take naps and doesn't go to bed till super late and then gets up early in the morning. Which I guess normally isn't such a big deal but being pregnant I am extremely fatigued and tired. But we actually had a lot of fun! We went fishing, which both Brookie and I lost interest very fast and were bored.

Brookie and Papa fishing

Brookie loves to go on 4-wheeler rides with Papa and look for animals. This is how we actually get her to fall asleep for a nap, take her for a ride. She loves to roast marsh mellows, well actually just burn them and leave them in the fire. She likes to lick the marsh mellows one lick at a time. :)

Lane was able to come up Monday morning as soon as he got off work and take Brookie fishing. She once again lost interest very fast, but I got 3 fish!!! I was so proud of myself. Lane on the other hand caught 1!

My Baby is 3!!!!

I can't believe I have a 3 year old! Well on her birthday September 2nd. We started off the day with breakfast at One Man Band, then we took her to Chuck E Cheese, that is where she wanted to go, just me her and Lane. Then Lane had to go to school and I had to go to work just for a couple hours. Then we got ready to the big party!! We just had family come over to my parents house and had a BBQ amd let the kids play in the water and swing set, hence the swimming suit! It was a fun day devoted all to my little munchkin!!
She was being silly and had 3 straws in her drink!

I just love these two!!!!
She loves to help Grandma mow the lawn. They were mowing the lawn so I could set up the swimming pools which sadly I ddin't get any pictures of them playing in it.

Just to clarify, I did NOT make her cake, are you kidding me!! I found this girls blog that makes amazing cakes, but they are a little pricy.

Some things to remember about Brookie when she is 3: (this is more for me to remember)

*she loves loves loves her Grandma's
*still has to watch Phineas and Ferb before naps and bed
*whenever she cries or get hurts she always wants daddy
*loves camping
*loves disney moves (Incredibles, Tarzan, Happy Feet are some of her favs)
*can do puzzles all by herself, big or small, she loves to do them
*tells me I look cute when I'm getting ready
*has to have a bowl of cereal every night
*loves animals but I refuse to get one at our house
*starting to not be so shy and will go up to other kids and ask them their name and if they want to play
*is a tease
*finally potty trained at night
*when I come home from work she runs and gives me a big hug and says, "you all done with work?"

This list could go on forever but I just don't want to forget. She is such a big girl and we love her to death!

So Much to Say!!!!

I have so much to post about; Brookie's birthday, labor day camping, fishing. But I have one thing on my mind that is pretty much consuming me. . .

I'M PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!


I say finally because we've been trying for a year. But as I look back on the past year it's been pretty tough. I miscarried at 6 weeks. Lane lost his job. I had to go back to work full time. Some of my close friends got pregnant and had babies which was extremely hard for me but at the same time I was so happy for them. Lane totally switched career paths and went back to school full time. Lane got a wonderful job at the hospital. Finances haven't been the greatest. But through all these trials we have learned and become stronger. We have a beautiful 3 year old who puts a smile on our face everyday.

We are thrilled to be pregnant, other than the fact I have been very sick the past 2 weeks throwing my guts up, which leads everyone to believe it's a boy since I wasn't this sick with Brooklyn.

I'm 12 weeks along and due March 18th!!!
