Only 10 more days!

Wow! I can't believe the time is almost here for Baby Taylor to join our family! I can already tell she is going to be one full energetic child! She is constantly kicking as if to say I want out of here! :) Brooklyn is so anxious to meet her and always takes hold of my belly to give her a big kiss! The other day while we were all laying bed she told Daddy that she was going to share all of her toys with Baby Taylor.... we already know they will be such sweethearts together.

This pregancy has been quite different from my first one and I can definitely say the first pregnancy was a lot easier! The first four to five months were NOT so fun! I had this constant nauseated feeling though I didn't throw up as much I thought I would but the 24/7 feeling of being nauseated is not something I ever want to experience again.... but then again.... We probably want another child, wanting a child wins over not being sick for another 5 months... oh boy... we will deal with that when it comes. Because I was so sick Matt and I thought we were going to have a boy. Brooklyn, being so close to heaven, just knew we were going to have a girl. We were so surprised when the doctor said, "You are having a GIRL"... Matt and I were sooo excited and Brooklyn of course was thrilled! She has always said I want a sister! Among other things that were different this pregnancy is that I am way more tired than my first one, now this one is a good one, I haven't gotten Shrek's feet! With Brooklyn my feet and ankles swelled up and seriously, I mean seriously, looked like Shrek's feet, all bloated you could barely see my painted pink toenails! I still have 10 days left so hopefully it doesn't happen! My hair got thicker during this pregnancy and I love it... I am afraid it will go back to being thinner and lose more curls! I lost alot of curls after I had Brooklyn, maybe the curls will come back! Crossing fingers.... Now the good part about this pregnancy is that I have been able to stay home and not work 60 to 70 hours a week up til I have the baby! I really didn't mind it when I was working all those hours being preggy with Brooklyn because I wasn't as tired and it was all I knew really. This time it would have been more work having Brooklyn with me and being much sicker. 

All in all, I am grateful I can be pregnant and be able to bring a baby into this world to be a part of our family. We are all anxiously awaiting Baby Taylor's arrival... It's amazing to have a life inside of me and I wouldn't trade it for anything else in this world. Thank you Heavenly Father for giving me such a beautiful experience despite the difficulties that come with it. Its all worth it at the end, we get a precious gift from you... Thank you....

Here are some more pictures I have wanted to post but haven't, they don't really have anything to do with what I have typed but its FAMILY (well okay mostly of Brooklyn) and that counts just as much as much as anything else and definitely more! I guess this can be a tribute Brooklyn for the sweet angel she is and for getting us all excited for the new one to come! Twice the fun!

Just had to take a picture of this girl!

Brooklyn dressed up for school as a farmer! The class was learning about farm animals.

Isn't this the cutest farmer face ever?!

Her preschool teacher, Mrs. Hadzima. She went to U of U for college! Small world! Brooklyn adores her!

One morning before preschool!

Playing at the park!

She is such a good helper! She loves to help with dishes!

Making cookies! She loves to cook!

Another day at the park!

Brooklyn is very creative and wanted to make a house and yard out of puzzle pieces! We had so much fun!

Brooklyn's hair got all static going down the slides at the park!

Modeling this cute coat! We never got it I am not sure why but it sure does look cute on her!

Loves taking bubble baths!

Quite the climber! She did this all by herself!  Can you tell that we spent every moment we could at the park before winter came?

Being artistic!

Completely worn out after a day of shopping... so cute!

Wearing the school mascot outfit! The Rochester Yellowjackets!

Hanging out at daddy's swim practice!  She ended up staying the whole time while I went an run some errands... it was so fun for her!

Matt got sap all over his hands bringing in the Christmas tree. His dad told him to rub peanut butter all over his hands and it will come right off! It worked! He was talking to his dad in this picture.
