Mobius with DAD

Spokane has a fun children's museum that is located below the downtown mall. After a couple days of being stuck inside because of the snow Jake had a day off from school and drove us down on the horrible roads to spend the day at Mobius. Bailey had so much fun playing and being with her Dad!
I think it hit record low temperatures this day. I have never been so cold in my life! It was around 2 degrees while we were out. The night before it hit -11 degrees! It doesn't help that I can no longer button my jacket!

It is so fun to see how much Bailey loves her Dad. Whenever she wakes up from her nap she starts asking for "dada." Jake is so good to Bailey and me. (right now he is standing in the freezing cold waiting to get into Toys R Us to buy Bailey a special Christmas Gift. I would have gone but the roads are so bad right now that he offered to go.) We are very lucky to have him.

Fall Family Pictures and an update

A couple weeks ago we had some good friends take some pictures for us. The fall colors in Spokane were so beautiful. Bailey did a great job letting us take her picture! I am about 26 weeks pregnant in these pictures, but really wanted some new family pictures. Below are a few of our favorites.

In other news we have chosen to move to Boise, Idaho next semester. Jake will be doing an externship (he still pays tuition and earns credit - just no classes) for the Ada County Prosecutor's Office. This was a very hard decision for us to make. We really enjoy Spokane and wanted to be able to finish up our schooling here, but feel that it is a good opportunity for us to extern in Boise. The hope is that they will have a job opening that Jake will be able to secure after he passes the bar. Because I am due to have our second baby February 5th we have decided that Jake will go to Boise in January to begin his externship, and I will stay in Spokane until the baby is born. We wouldn't be able to get insurance in Boise in time for the baby's arrival so we feel that I need to stay behind. I am not looking forward to being a single mom for a month while 9 months pregnant. It will be a challenge!
Jake will officially graduate from Law School in May, study for the bar, and take the bar the end of July. We are anxious to see what the future brings! We have looked forward to graduation since the day we were married and are so happy it is so close!

Bailey is turing into a little girl and has become so much fun! I can not express how much joy she brings into our home. She is such a happy, energetic, and intelligent little girl. At her 16 month check up Bailey weighed in at 19lbs (6th percentile) an was in the the 83rd percentile for height. Bailey loves to talk and sing! We love Bailey so much and feel so blessed to have her as our daughter.

This pregnancy is going good. I am 28 weeks and feel like I am getting huge! I am measuring a little bigger then average. So maybe that means this baby will be big, or he will come early, or...I will just be left with a lot of extra work after he is born! He is a very active baby! We are very excited to have him here, but I will be honest and say that I don't know if we are ready for the sleep deprivation that comes with having a baby. Hopefully he sleeps through the night before Bailey did (around 8 months)!

Halloween 2010

I had so much fun dressing Bailey up as a bumble bee for Halloween. Jake was sick all weekend, and we were sad that he missed out on the Halloween fun. On Saturday me and Bailey went with some friends to there ward Halloween party and Bailey was able to "trunk or treat." Halloween night we were able to go to a Halloween dinner at some friends house and all the kids dressed up again. Bailey made a very cute bumble bee! Having a little girl to play dress up with is so much fun!
