Easton is the cutest little boy we know! He rightfully earned the nickname 'BEASTY' when he was a baby and it has stuck with him. He is such a sweet little mommy's boy and we are ALL at his Beck and call. Easton loves cars, snacks, and playing outside. He is talking up a storm and it seems like he learns something new every single day. He is at such a fun age. We LOVE LOVE LOVE this little guy!


Ainslee is the baby and she just turned ONE!! This child is a handful!!! She hasn't quite grown out of the difficult phase.....that she has been in since she was born, but we still find ways to find her sweet side! Hearing her baby giggles and watching her discover & learn new things make all the whininess......just a little easier to deal with. Aaaahhh, we love this Ainslee Girl!!


Oh our cute little Avery! With her blue eyes & blonde hair, she is one of the cutest 4 year olds around!! This girl is stubborn! She definitely keeps us on our toes. She is quite unpredictable, which makes for a lot of laughs! Avery is our TREAT-FREAK! We can always guess what is on her mind. My favorite thing about Avery is her smiles. She always has one for us no matter what and that makes everyones day just a little better. She attends preschool and says she doesn't like it, but secretly we know she does ;). We are so lucky to have this cute girl in our family! We can't get enough of her.

Kobe is our first child, born in 2004. He was 4 months early and weighed a whopping 1 lb. 4 oz.! We got to be with Kobe for 4 wonderful weeks. I feel so blessed to have been chosen to raise one of God's perfect children. We love him and thank Heavenly Father everyday that he is part of our family. We have a treasure in heaven.

Quinnie just turned 6! She is growing faster than we can keep up with! She loves going to first grade and is doing really well! She picks up on things very quickly and LOVES learning. She's seriously a sponge. Her favorite thing to do is write notes and draw pictures for her friends & family. You should see our continual stack of papers. Quinnlyn is creative & spunky & totally independant. We love her like crazy!

The past week

Brett finally got his new 47" Flat Screen. Spent way more than he initially said he would. It doesn't fit in my entertainment center so our living room is rearranged in a weird way. Now my entertainment center serves no purpose except looking cute :( He doesn't care about my pain....he knows that is my favorite piece of furniture that we own. He will be re-purposing it by putting shelves and bead board where the TV should be.

(This isn't our actual TV, but it looks like it.)

Valentine's Day was great! The only thing I wanted was a night out with my husband, so we spent 5 wonderful contraction-filled hours eating at Outback Steakhouse (my restaurant of choice these days), buying Brett's TV (while he pushed me in a wheel chair), & getting some good deals at walgreen's. Seriously, it was a much needed night!
Grandma Jones got a surprise Valentine's package in the mail and she was kind enough to share with us....YUMMY!

And the girls woke up on Valentine's Day to find a bucket full of fun things. They got a princess plate, cup, and utensils along with candy. They were in heaven.

I officially HATE snow. I don't want to see anymore falling, but according to the forecast, I am not going to get my way. Just when it begins to melt, we get 2 more days of the stupid stuff and it is so depressing.

And I am 31.5 weeks. Yipee (still going so slow). My cervix is the same length and the baby is moving. Every week he is in a different position....breech, head-down, transverse....I think he is back to head-down at the moment. Quinnlyn told me I don't have a's true....except I haven't had one since 10 weeks. I think we have narrowed the baby names down to two. Brett would say one, because he isn't really accepting the one I prefer. We'll see how it goes.

All he needs with the TV is an Xbox...:0)

Jenna said...

you are so freaking cute! I hate you. You look so perfect just a little basket ball or less!!!

Erin said...

I would HATE the snow too. We have had BEAUTIFUL weather, in the 80's. You should have gotten in to school in So. California... haha. If only we could pick... You look great by the way and yay for 31 weeks. You are getting to the "safe" point. Good luck with everything.

Well I am glad Brett finally got that TV!! But bummer for you and the entertainment center!! I am glad to hear you were able to get out of the house finally!! You look tiny to me!

Rach said...

You look great...
I'm sorry about the TV/entertainment situation...they just don't get it
AND the snow sucks, but your house is way cute!
{what are the names?}

Candace said...

Jonathan is GREEN with envy about Brett's new TV!!!! :)

AND I'm so glad you guys got to get out ALONE for Valentine's Day!! You deserve it, BIG TIME. Isn't it fun to be pushed around in a wheel chair?? I had to do that on my wedding day 'cause I was still weak from having mono. Good times.

Oh, and CUTE belly!! Hang in there. With the pregnancy and the snow. :P

Gwenevere said...

Did you contract like this with the girls or is it just your male pregnancies?

P.S. The snow isn't so bad.

McKay and Amanda Jones said...

You look so cute!!! Good luck till the end! Wishing ya well... we are getting close!!!

Bobbi Simkins said...

wow that is a lot of snow! i think we had that much at one time too but most of it has melted and it is pretty nice today...50. hang in there, you are almost there. when is your dr considering the safe zone? 36 weeks?

Christie said...

I HATE snow too! Whenever Dale goes to work and it is snowing I pray the whole time. He got into a little accident and spun around two times. Luckily there was a guard rail so he didn't fall off of the freeway. It is NOT supposed to snow here! At least that is what people told me. See you next week!

Oh gosh you look so cute preggo! I'm jealous! I'm sorry you have to go through all that, and the boredom! I totally went through that all last year I felt like! Not the bed rest thing, but just depression and stuff! Hang in there!

Nate would be jealous of the TV...I think we're the last people in the world who don't have a flat screen :) But that would be a bummer about the entertainment center! I love your e.c. too! That's awesome that you're 31 weeks! good job mom!
