Baby Lexi 20 week Ultrasoud :)

So far so good, everything looks great! Waiting to hear back final word from the radiologist, but the lady doing the ultrasound has been doing them for 30 years and she said everything looks good! Can't wait to meet our baby Lexi! :)
Love to all!

4th of July!

I love these pictures of Lila. Brent did a mini marathon that morning (all of this on the 3rd), then we were in a parade. Lila looked adorable! Last we had a big party at Grant and Sandy's house. It was a great day!

Love to all!

Florida Trip!

It's been so long since I have posted. This is all going to be a quick picture update really because I have to get ready for work! I am going to be so late. :) We had an amazing time in Florida with Grant, Sandy and the Isom's. As a group we covered for the most part: Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Clearwater Beach, Seaworld, Aquatica, Gator Land, a Character Breakfast, some amazing dinners, catching up with friends, etc. I hope I didn't forget anything but I am sure I did. The first picture is of Lila on Mother's Day here at Grand America in SLC.

Love to all!

Grandpa Hawkins (Easter and Tulip Feastival)

We are sad to report that our dear Grandpa Hawkins has passed away from cancer. He was such a ray of sunshine for us during his time here, and we look forward to being with him again. We are so happy that we were able to get some recent pictures of him with Lila.

There are also some pictures of Lila from Easter and the Tulip Feastival.

Love to all!

I'm SICK and TIRED!!!!!

But.... it's for a good reason though. :)

I just wanted to thank everyone for their prayers. Brent and I are almost 13 weeks pregnant now. It seems so far so good with everything. We have already had 2 ultrasounds, the last one being around week 10 and I was able to see the little baby squiggle wiggle all around. It was such a relief! I have been really nauseous and tired, but it's all worth it. I am thinking it should start winding down over the next week or so. With Lila I think it went to about week 14. Our house looks like well....... not good. I am looking forward to an energy boost during the second trimester so I will actually feel like doing stuff.

We just got back from a wonderful trip to Florida, I will have to blog about that and post pictures at some point, but at this point my priorities are trying to take care of Lila, work, rest when I can, and eventually take care of things around the house!

Potty Training...

Ok, it's starting! Lila has shown quite a bit of interest in the potty. I take her in with me every time I go, and most of the time she gets mad when I sit down, because she wants to be the one to sit down. She is starting to get the lingo down too. I decided to get her a soft cushion seat that sits right on the normal seat. When we got home yesterday she sat right on it. I kept asking her if she was done and she would say "no". She was very content to just sit there. (and keep on wiping, lol it's her favorite part) While she is sitting there she likes to grab toilet paper and wipe everything around her too. LOL. So, this is a brand new adventure. I am not in any hurry to potty train her. If it takes some time that is fine with me. I don't want to hold her back either obviously. I have read a few articles on how to do it. I'm sure it's different in practice.

I felt so bad. late last night after our prayers, Lila went running in the bathroom and all of a sudden we hear a scream and cry. She was trying to lift the lid on the toilet to put her seat back on and the lid came down on her and caught her face and landed on her wrist. Poor thing was crying big tears. She felt better when I sat her back on her potty and let her wipe her own tears, nose, and anything else she could wipe. :)

Brian Regan... So Freakin' Funny!

Brent and I went on a date Wednesday night to see Brian Regan. He is a stand up comedian that we love a lot. His humor is clean which we really appreciate. He typically jokes about every day events. If I can figure out a way to add a clip or a YouTube video I will. If not, you should definately look him up. The show was about 2 hours long. He had a guy open for him, and that guy was good too. Brian was up there for most of the time. I was laughing so hard and so much that I was exhausted from laughing. I didn't want to laugh anymore. LOL.
