The best news ever! Lucy is POTTY TRAINED!! She has been potty trained for about a month now and is doing awesome!

Carter is practicing for Playgirl! He is so sweet and cute. He is a little too attached to mommy and daddy. He is happy as long as he is eating or if we are out doing something any other time....not so much......

We went to the fair a couple times this year and took these pictures in the photo booths.

went apple picking

I made Lucys birthday cake

We got Lucy a bounce house for her party. If anyone is having a party for a three year old this is a must have!! They were entertained the whole time!

My dad has been coming over and helping Tyler re do the sprinklers. Then Tylers dad came over and rototilled the front yard. It looks a lot better! We are just waiting till the gound settles to plant seed.

We demoed the down stairs bathroom. We found out that our house used to be a model home in the early 90's and they put wall paper directly on top of the dry wall then the other people that lived in our house before us painted a couple of time on top of that. So now we have to strip the layers and plaster.

Summer time!

The pictures and events are not in order.

Carter is so cute and so happy all the time! We love him!

Lucy had her first day of pre-school. I did her hair like this. I think it turned out pretty good for never doing it before. Plus I just recently learned how to french braid.

We are doing a little pre-school with 5 other kids from church. Every 5th week I will have all the kids at my house to teach.

Lucy fell asleep like this

The kids at Stacie's wedding

Stacie looked beautiful! I LOVED her dress!

We went camping with Tyler's family where everyone got the stomach flu! so gross!

Lucy starts preschool on Tuesday and we needed to get a couple of supplies. We were at Marshalls looking at some clothes and a mom and her daughter and son walked by us. I noticed that the boy kind of stunk but I just kept looking at the clothes. Then I looked over at Lucy and she had a weird face.

M: Whats wrong Lucy?

L: That boy is stinky!

I didn't think that she noticed things that smelled! I guess this proves she really is our daughter!

A little update

I'm not going to take the time to edit any of this so all the writing is at the bottom. There will be more pictures of our new house coming soon.

I grew these tomatoes at our apartment

Kyle left on his mission to Peru

Carters and his cousin Natalie. She is a month older than him.

We moved into our new house so that's my excuse for not blogging. Any way Carter is almost 8 months now and last night was his first time sleeping without waking up every three hours. I painted his room blue and I read that babies sleep better in blue rooms. I'm sure that's not why he slept but it's going to be my excuse for all the hard work that I did painting on our wonderful textured walls (that's sarcastic! Textured walls are horrible and very hard to paint).

Lucy is almost 3 and is even more sassy than ever! She doesn't like to share with other kids but she is usually good about letting Carter play with her stuff. Yesterday, the At&T guy was here fixing our computer and he walked into our office where Lucy had left a game spread out on the floor. Lucy says hey don't step on my stuff (imagine that with attitude head bobbing and hand motions) I was kinda shocked and embarrassed. What do you say to that?! Hopefully she will be starting preschool soon and then maybe she will learn some social skills that don't require bossing other people around.

Disneyland and Baby blessing

We blessed Carter last Sunday. We waited till everyone could be here. That means that Carter was two months old and extra Large. I wasn't sure if the guys in the circle would be able to hold him through the whole blessing. At his two month appointment he weighted 13.10 and 23 in. long. The Dr. said he was as big as a 4 or 5 month old. Since Tyler's whole family was here we took the opportunity to go to Disney land. We also had David take pictures of Brooklyn and Lucy. Thanks David!
Carters Blessing!

Cute pictures of The Doxeys and Browns. (Feel free to steal these Heidi and Nikki)

Baby Carter

I know it's been forever but I hate to blog. This blog took me four hours to do so you better enjoy it. Haha. I love to hear peoples birthing stories I hope you do to cause here is mine!
By December 1st I swore that I was going to have him any day. I had contractions all the time I was dilated to a 3 and 60% effaced not to mention the fact that I was huge! Well, I past my due date which was December 31st. My Doctor had me come in on January 5th for an ultra sound and stress test. Carter was measuring over 9lbs and was turned face up. I thought oh great this is going to hurt! He sent us to the hospital to have them monitor my contractions. When I got there they checked me and I was dilated to a 5-6 and was having regular contractions. My contractions really never hurt me. I was having the same type of contractions for the past month. They usually don't give an epidural till your dilated to a 3 so since I was almost a 6 they gave me an epidural and then started me on pitocin. I didn't feel pain the entire time. At around 1:30am I felt my water brake and that I needed to push. The Doctor came in I pushed like 3 times and he was out. 8.08lbs 19in long. He had trouble keeping his temperature up so he had to go to the NICU that night to be under a heat lamp but other than that he was perfectly healthy. The pictures are out of order (one of the reasons this has taken me four hrs) but at least I did a blog!

this is Lucy right after she was born.

Carter loves to lay on my lap

Brooklyn and Lucy

He had super long finger nails and I couldn't wait to cut them.

Before I had him. No pain!
