9 months

So here it the 9 month post. I have been so bad about posting about my little Bree bug, second child syndrome, what are going do to? First off she is an ANGEL sent straight from heaven. She sleeps like a dream she started sleeping through the night at 3 weeks, like 10-7, but now she's a 7-7 girl, boo ya! She has two bottom teeth and 1/2 of a top tooth. She sits, she totally skipped rolling and she's like half a push away from crawling. She has never been crazy fussy, sometimes when we are hanging out with people and she starts to whine they say "wow that is the fussiest I have ever hared her"!
She LOVE LOVES LOVES her family, it's a toss up who she likes more me, Randy or Lincoln. Lincoln will go and crawl into her bed after her nap and the two of them just giggle and laugh. She is as squishy as she looks, at 20 lbs. she better be! Her arms and legs are so soft and just so fun to squeeze! CURLS! Need I say more.
This little girl is my dream baby I LOVE HER!

Never Forgotten

It's funny how things stick in your mind, like what my typing partner said to me, and how I felt the moment my Mom told me that there was a shooting in my high school.

I grew up on Littleton Colorado. I loved it there I had friends and it was all I knew I had never moved, until I was 16. Then on August 15, 1998, my parents moved us to Utah. Nine months later was April 20, 1999. I got paged to the office about 45min before school let out, it was a rainy gloomy day. I knew it was something big because I saw my older brother getting check out too. As we were walking to the car, my mom told us what had happened. We had SO many questions, so we went up to my aunts house and turned on the news and just watched, that's all we could do was watch. We tried to call everyone we could think of to make sure that our friends were all safe and not apart of that ever looming number. Thankfully none of them were. I think I just stared at the TV for hours I slept on the couch that night, sick and tired of them running the same images over and over again.

As we were driving to school the next day Kyle said to me, just be thankful that we are safe and that none of our friends were killed or hurt. I was thankful, and sill am.

I was able to go back and attend a few memorial services and the funeral of Rachel Scott. She was an amazing girl and I will always remember the few memories that I have with her. I was there when they re-opened the school for the first day of my senior year. Every year around this time I get homesick, I want to go back, Colorado will ALWAYS be my home.

The one thing that I have learned through all of this is how much my Savior loves me, and how faith is built through trials. When I went back I cannot tell you how much love there was, I was amazed at how people pulled together and showed their love and support, for everyone. What happened at Columbine was the worst thing that I could think of. But I know that it has brought good to people. Please go and check out Rachel's Challenge, it is Rachel Scott and her story she challenges us all to be better people through kindness and compassion. I think this is one small way that we can all learn from this tragedy. WE ARE.

Oh the places they poop....

The park, Grandma's houses, Chuck-e-cheese. This wouldn't be so bad except he isn't wearing a diaper anymore! That's right for my first real test into motherhood I think I get a D-! Potty Training SUCKS. I wish I would have realized how bad it really does suck then I would have waited until he was, oh I don't know, 16. However that means that I have been stuck inside my house for the last month, you would think that I would have found 5 min to blog, but no this was on the bottom of the totem pole. I have however done other projects, I made Bree some stinking cute dresses and homemade baby food. I blew it with Lincoln, he got Gerber food, maybe thats whats wrong with him, but not with Bree she is my little princess, so no store bought food for her. She gets all the organic hormone free stuff. YHA RIGHT! I am not waisting my money on "organic" it's regular ol' produce for her.
I have made her squash...ok my mom made that, but I did sweet potato's, broccoli and oatmeal, next up is cauliflower and carrots, YUM. I have only given her a few foods, she has had the squash and some apple sauce and she did really well do I thought I would giver her scrambled eggs, she is 9 months and I read in a book that it was ok, NOT OK. She threw up twice and got a HUGE rash all over her little chubby body, so it looks like no eggs until she's 18months then we can try again, stupid book. I did turn 27 this last month and wow it is a different world to be in your "late 20's" I hate it, I want to be 25 forever. So to fix my sagging late 20's buttocks Randy got me this... LOVE HIM. But now this means no more excuses, so next time you see me give my huge buttocks a poke and see if I have really been using it, cuz if you ask I will naturally say "well yha" so that is the real test.
And now some cute pics because I just can't resist.
Look how beautiful my little babies are. I could just eat them up!
