I’m Back!

It’s been almost a year since I’ve updated my blog!!! Time flies when you are having fun! I’m going to try to do better and keep this updated mostly for my sake!! I finally have my life somewhat back together after having a baby. It only took me a year…. Things are going really well. Madi is 4. She is in dance, soccer, and preschool right now. She loves them all!! She loves to imagine that she is in different movies. Right now she is in Camp Rock 2. She has quite the imagination!

Beau is 1! I cannot believe it! She is so funny and loves her big sister. She says “HI” to everyone and, just like her big sister, loves to be the center of attention. She just learned how to walk, and she toddles everywhere now! She is so fun to watch! She loves to wrestle with her daddy and can have quite the attitude. She will take on anyone, no matter what size! We call her our brute, and Beauzilla!

Brian is working hard as usual. He just got back from hunting in Utah, and has another deer hunt here in about a month. He cracks me up!

I’m still watching my nephews and niece. They are getting big! I’m going to Medical Transcription school and have a couple months left! I can’t wait to be done! Other than that I just chase two little girls around, try to come up with craft projects, and find/cook new recipes!

Here are some pictures of the years events:


Us in Minnesota in January. It was a little cold!! =-)


Me and the girls in HAWAII!! We got to see my little sister!

Baby Beau Is Here!

Beau was born Aug. 31st at 1:22pm. She weighed 8lbs 9oz!!! And was 4 days early! Dr. Tindall induced me because I had been having contractions for about a month and was dilated to a 4. We had to be at the hospital at 3:00 am (yes that's right people) to start some meds because I was group B strep positive and had to have 3 bags of penicillin before he could break my water. At 9am he broke my water and contractions kicked up a notch! I got my epidural and a half hour later was ready to push! 2 contractions and 6 pushes later, my sweet Beau was born!!!! I couldn't believe how fast everything went. I was only in labor 4 hours with no pitocin!! I couldn't have asked for a better delivery! We thought she looked just like Madi at first, but she is now getting her own little look. She is such a good baby!
Madi was so excited to meet her baby sister! She can't leave her alone! Poor Beau is going to have to get use to getting a million kisses a day from her big sis.!
Here are some pics from the big day!!!

Just a quick update!! I have been to the hospital twice now for having contractions every 2 minutes, but they are just from being dehydrated since I can barely keep anything down. I am dilated to a 4 though and still having "true labor" contractions but the Doctor isn't wanting to do anything to progress my labor until I'm at least 39 weeks. So for now I'm just drinking like crazy and trying to keep everything down. It is so frustrating and I wish they would just get her out, but I'm sure it's for the best and I would feel horrible if she came too soon! It's so hard to wait!

D-Backs/ Lifehouse!

I love the band Lifehouse! I think I've been to most of their concerts in the valley. So this last weekend they played after the Diamondbacks game and my mom and dad were so awesome and kind enough to get us all tickets to it! We had so much fun! Even Madi went and had a blast! I think she liked the game better than the concert. She danced and cheered her little heart out! Thanks again Mom and Dad!!!

She has to sit by aunt Brandy no matter where we are!

Go D-backs!
