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!

It's OVER!!!!

Yes, I am done with my 17p ALPHAHYDROXY PROGESTERONE SHOTS. Every Sunday evening for the past 17 weeks Brett has given me one, and it's finally over. I was actually pretty lucky though...most women who take these shots get stinging, bruising, and itching at the injection site. But I only had pain once (it was the second shot). In fact, Brett and I had a pretty good system once I gave in and let him just poke me without taking 5 minutes to give him the OK. And he was so nice to take a couple of minutes to push the medicine in slowly (it's mixed in oil, so it's really a thick solution).
So that is another milestone down!!! In 1 day I will be 36 weeks and I feel like I have been pregnant FOREVER!!!!! can't complain unless you had to be on bedrest for at least 5 weeks, see the doctor weekly, take daily meds, take weekly injections, spend a few nights in Labor & Delivery, & have contractions all day everyday. I feel I have earned my right to complain!!!!
On the other hand, I feel so blessed that although it isn't easy, I am able to carry a pregnancy to term. I will try not to complain too much then.

Brett will love this picture!!!! I gave him 2 chances to get a good one, but he was sick that night and not very into this is what we got...HA HA.

You are totally validated in complaining. I would be ranting if I had to be on best rest for longer than a week! I'm due just a week after you and I feel like I've been preggo for years. And I haven't had it nearly as rough as you. Way to hang in there.
