A New Year!

2010 has been such a great year with many ups and downs.
-Bailey learned to crawl, walk, run, climb, talk, and most importantly, sleep!
-We moved to a new apartment, a storage unit, Italy, and then to a basement, and are currently packing to move to Boise!
-We traveled to Italy, stayed for 2 months, and had more ups and downs while there then we could have ever imagined. Italy included long plain rides, one of which was me and Bailey on a plane for 15 plus hours sitting next to a bunch of business men on a red eye flight which Bailey chose not to sleep on. (I would never recommend traveling that far with a 12 month old) Italy also included E.R. visits, lots of sweating, lots of walking, me and Jake both loosing 10lbs, GELATO, yummy pasta, and seeing some of the most amazing sites in the world!
-We found out we were pregnant with a baby boy
-Jake got in a car accident that resulted in the loss of his car. We bought a minivan to replace his car which is now my car and he drives the jeep. HAHA! I am a true mom with a minivan now!
-Trips to Arizona :)
-Jake finished his last law school exams...other then the bar that he will be taking Summer 2011.
-I have enjoyed life more then ever in 2010! Being able to care for Bailey each day bring me so much joy! The end of law school is drawing near and we are hopeful for what the future has to bring!

2011 Goals
-Get back in shape and Run a Half Marathon
-Read the Book of Mormon
-Have Family Home Evening weekly

Liberty Lake Tree Lighting

We went to the tree lighting in Liberty Lake last weekend. They had a "hayride" that we went on. It was Very cold outside, but we had fun being out together.

These are two of Bailey's favorite people. (Landon and Elliot) She refers to them both as "LaLa" and asks to go see them daily.

December so far

December has been an eventful month and it is only the second week. After Thanksgiving Bailey got the stomach flu which passed very quickly and didn't seem to bother her too much. A day later I got the stomach flu and have never thrown up so much in one night! After talking to nurse Bev who lives upstairs I decided to go into the E.R. in hopes of getting an i.v. to get hydrated. Little did I know I would be spending the next day and a half there. Because I got so dehydrated I started contracting every 5 minutes and also began to dialate. The doctor in the E.R. was extremely worried. They were able to stop the contractions after about 6 hours, but I still spent the night there. Jake was also sick with the stomach flu which didn't make things any easier. We are grateful to all our friends and ward who helped us out as I got feeling better and Jake was busy with his last week of classes.
I had a doctor appointment today which went great. The doctor approved us to go home for Christmas and thinks everything will be fine with the remainder of my pregnancy and expects me to go full term.
To add to this busy time of year Jake was in a car accident on Saturday which left his car totaled. :( A girl was driving and failed to stop at a red light and he struck her (hardly damaging her dad's big truck), but leaving his car totaled. We are grateful he is ok and that the other driver has insurance along with us!
I feel ready to have this baby and not be pregnant anymore! I don't enjoy the last 2 months of being pregnant. Last night I realized a series of thing that go on each night which is really annoying. Before dinner I have to take Zantac because I have such horrible heart burn 24 hours a day. Before bed I like to stand outside in the 20 degree weather becasue I am so hot all the time. It takes 30 minutes to get to sleeep because I can't get comfortable, but then I wake up every 2 hours because I have to pee so much, and half way through the night I consider eating something because I am so hungry, and at 6 am I wake up to a HORRIBLE leg cramp that leaves my leg sore for days. And I won't lie that I hate getting bigger! I think pregnant girls are so cute, but not myself! We are very excited to be having a little boy and that Bailey will soon have someone to play with!
