Utah Sky Trials and More

This last weekend we traveled to the Utah Sky Trials, a falconry event that Stephen goes to every year. It's actually pretty fun because we get a chance to see some friends that we don't see any other time of the year, and some really impressive bird flights. I saw more of a cute little boy in a blue coat than anything else, but I love that! Cooper had so much fun trying to keep up with Taron, playing in the dirt, pushing his Tonka truck around and seeing all the birds. He loves being outside and it was a pretty warm weekend, so a good combination.

Below are also a few random pics from the week or so before. Last week I had the chance to see our baby again- moving around a lot and it's little heart beating away. We were pretty excited to see our ticker move below 200 days! :)

His favorite thing when I'm in the kitchen is to be standing on a chair at the sink and playing in a bowl of water. He loves playing in water no matter where or how or how much!

This is Coop with Nathaniel and Andrew Gardner, our good friends. They were over for popcorn, orange julius and a movie and I thought the three of them looked so cute!

Garrett and Cooper eating Valentine Fun Dip- they loved sticking out thier tongues for a picture! I watch Garrett while my Aunt Lisa is at work on Monday and Tuesday. The two of them have a good time together since Garrett is only ten months older. :)

Happy Valentines!

Just wanting to wish those that might visit our blog a Happy Valentines Day! I love doing fun little things for Valentines- we are excited to have the boys with us for the weekend and had fun picking out little gifts for them. I always remember my parents getting us something fun each year too. Hope everyone knows they are loved this year :)

Coop playing recently with his Noah's Ark Little People- this set is so adorable!

Trying to figure out how to get into the locked office so he can play on the computer... :) Such a fun, funny boy.

Now That the Whole Ward Knows...

... I guess we'll go ahead and post to our blog... we're expecting!! This last Sunday, Stephen bore his testimony in our ward and announced as part of it that we were having another baby! Needless to say, my eyes got huge and my face bright red! It felt like everyone turned to look at me and laugh as he quickly confessed "I'm not sure I was supposed to say anything." What a funny little story to tell this kid! Nothing like shouting the news from the pulpit... :) I am grateful that he's so proud though. :)

Anyhow, this baby will join our world mid to late August and mark the completion of our family. We're excited, and worried, and excited. :) Having diabetes makes my pregnancies worrisome and diligent. Lots of time in the doctor's office, lots of blood testing and lots of praying. We pray that it goes similar to before, which was trying but also very blessed. No matter what, we know that this child was meant to join our family at this particular time and are looking forward to the joy it will bring!

Last week we got to have our first ultrasound and that is always amazing and reassuring. When they bring up the 3D pictures, it just takes our breath away! The baby moved around really well and it's little heart was beating away- we walked away reassured and in awe. We are so blessed. And life is miraculous.
