36 weeks

9 MONTHS!!!!
Sam you are just packing on the ounces and pounds from now on.  
You are so big that its getting hard for you to move around like you usually do. 
Its hard for me to walk around because I am so big. 
Yesterday a stranger asked me when I was due with twins? um. ok. nope just one in there. haha.
I have been sleeping on the couch and it has made a world of a difference. 
I only woke up once the first night. I sleep amazing. 
Daddy is working on the New Testament film this summer and he starts prep this week.  
I am so happy he gets to do what he loves. 
We wont be seeing much of him but we know that it is a blessing he has a job.
next week is another Doctor's appt and this time we will find out for sure if inducing me a week early will be the best thing for us in account of you being so big.

Dinosaur Park

Saturday we planned on taking Will to the Dinosaur Park and to spent the day with my sister in law and  her little family. We had a nice and relaxing time catching up and holding her sweet baby girl.  After a nice afternoon we took Will to the Dinosaur Park. Since we went an hour before it closed, there were hardly people there and because of the heat we didn't stay very long. Which was fine, Will seemed pretty over it after 30 minutes of walking around. I think the heat was really bothering him cuz usually he loves Dinosaurs.  Afterwards we cooled down with some popsicle and headed over to my sister in laws to iChat with the family. I love days like that where we get to spend time with family. I love when Kent is with his siblings and parents and hearing stories about their childhood. They have so many wonderful memories and it makes me so excited to have that start in our little family.  The more I spend with Kent's family the more I come to appreciate and thank Heavenly Father to be part of that eternal family. I look up to my in laws so much. They have no idea how proud I am to be their daughter in law.

 My stomach is heavy.
On Friday I had to chase your brother down the street. 
He thought it was a game. 
The chase and having to carry him back into the house left me bedridden for a day.
it was awful not being able to do anything but lay. 
Organizing every cupboard and drawer in the kitchen that same day didn't help I guess. 
 Let me tell you, if you want to torture me, just force me to stay in bed all day. 
Its the worst. 
Lately I've been having mild back contractions and my pelvic joints are shot to hell.
My sciatic pain is back but it all means I am getting closer to the end. 
I tried taking Tylenol extra strength so that i can get rest at night but that doesn't help at all. 
Its days like this I wish I had my mom close by.  
Someone I can just call up and keep me company for a few hours.
or help take Will out to the park or something.
Poor kid is all cooped up in the house with me. 
Lately I have been feeling restless.
 I just want to hold you already!
 I keep finding things to clean and organize which is driving your dad insane i'm sure. 
Everything is ready for your arrival!
Went to my doctors appointment today and everything is looking good. My blood pressure is great, I've only gained 37lbs so far and i'm not as swollen as before.

Will lately...

A little about BIG brother...

 Brother says thank you for everything that we do for him. 
we are still working on him saying I love you. 
Last night he somewhat said the prayer at dinner. 
It melted my heart. 
I love him so much. 
He is excited to meet you. 
He says your name now and its super cute.
He loves to read books and play with puzzels.
We think he might be a lefty.
He is getting good at using scissors.
He knows how to use my phone way better then daddy.
He is way into Avengers, Transformers, and anything Disney.
He loves to make a mess.
rarely is his room nice and neat.
But if you make it a game, he will help you clean it up.
He walks over to our room in the middle of the night and snuggles in between us.
We need that to stop but at the same time I love it.
I am sad he is growing up so fast.
He is a special little boy.
He looks and acts just like his daddy.
I love it.
He loves to kiss, hug and snuggle.
He hates getting his diaper changed. its always a struggle.
his favorite thing to do right now is take off all the cushions from the couch and bounce on it.
He is not afraid of heights. He is a little daredevil.

Dia del padre!

Happy Father's Day Kent! 
Happy Father's day to the most amazing man in my world. I cannot believe that I get to spend the rest of my life with the man of my dreams. He sacrifies so much for our little family everyday. When he comes home he helps me with anything that I need especially with Will, even if he has been working all day long he still helps out. He always places his family first. He is an amazing father to Will. amazing! Sam is so blessed to have a father like Kent. I am so grateful for the kind of relationship that we have created. He is my best friend. And I love spending every single day with him. We never get tired of each other which I think is a pretty good sign that we are alright. :-)

Father's day was super low key this year. I am as slow as a turtle these days. I stayed home with Will today and Kent went in to work in the morning.  I managed to make a father's day banner for him. Tried getting Will envolved but he wouldn't have it. I made chicken curry in the crock pot with jasmine rice and made homemade brownies for dessert and called it good.

Although I'm feeling huge and my shirts are not fitting, 
I've never felt better. 
I think Sam has moved positions or something because 
I can move around better this week. 
Sleeping is still awful. 
I hate going to bed because I am never comfortable. 
Luckily our cousin Brooke let me borrow a body pillow so that should make sleeping tonight enjoyable. 
We registered at the Hospital today. 
It took about 5 mins. 
Sam's nursery is slowing coming together.  
We still need to vacuum and get a twin bed. 
Oh and we should probably start thinking about
 buying newborn diapers. 
I am so glad we don't have to worry about clothes or blankets.  
Most of the things that were given to Will are in great condition or have never been worn.
Will pointed to my belly the other day and instead of saying "baby" he said SAM!
 I got teary. 
It was super sweet. 
He is going to be a great big brother. 
I am loving that he is starting to understand more of what is going on around him. 
Since I am being induced the week of the 17th (JULY) that means I only have 5 more weeks to go.

33 weeks

Swollen feet!!!   
As soon as 8 months rolled along, my body just took a big hit. 
its as if it was saying " you thought this was going to be a breeze, huh? Well, its not."
Last week I couldn't walk 2 steps without being in pain. 
This week its much better. 
Doctor says he is just too big for my small torso and stature.
 I am caring pretty low and Sam is putting a lot of 
pressure on my pelvis. 
This baby sure is using up all the space I have. 
Simple tasks like putting on pants, sitting down, or getting up, laying down are extremely painful.
If I drop something on the floor consider it lost till Kent gets home. 
I am so grateful when he is home.
 Even if he had a long day at work, he ready to help get 
Will ready for bed. 
I love that man.
Other then being uncomfortable, Baby and I are healthy. 
My due date is July 24th but because of Sam's size 
I will most likely not go pass July 17th. 
I am so excited to be so close to the finish line.

our little garden

This year our ward is focusing on strengthening the family and becoming self reliant. A few families have offered to share their back yard with other ward families to garden.  This is our very first time gardening and its so exciting!  An elderly sister in our ward kindly let us use her backyard and we are sharing the space with 2 other families. It was a lot of work for Kent to do all by himself. this 8 month pregnant women couldn't bend down and weed or till for very long without getting swollen or just plain exhausted BUT I did help pick out the seeds and plant them. ( ha ha)
Will had a blast playing in the dirt and watching daddy do all the work. between the 3 families we take turns watering the plants. I am so excited for when its time to harvest! I can't wait to see if the watermelon will grow!

This year we started out with: 
Roma tomatoes
Cayenne peppers
gypsy peppers
golden bell peppers
and Cucumber
