Growing up too fast!

So I decided to start the transition from the crib to a big boy bed a little early. I didn't want to have to worry about the transition after Aaliyah is born. My mom found him the cutest little twin bed on KSL. I haven't gotten all of the decor for it, so I will post pictures later. But we set it up today and he was so so excited!!!! Just look at that cheeser grin...Well tonight he fell asleep in the car ride home, so I brought him in his bed and changed his diaper. He woke up and looked around, when he realized he was in his NEW bed he gave me the biggest smile. He said "mommy, mommy, mommy". And then puckered up his lips and gave me a kiss. He then continued to look around and give me more kisses. It was seriously the most precious moment ever. I tried to get a pic of him sleeping but the flash was too bright...Okay okay okay. Of course I had to keep walking in there and stare at him sleep. Is this normal? So I finally got a picture of him sleeping. So precious.
I'll have to let you know how it goes in the morning. I hope he wakes up happier, warmer, and more refreshed.

Family Pictures '09

Baby girl at 30 weeks...
Kayden 6 years old, Skylar 21 months old

Me and my hubby.
It was quite a stressful foto session... but I think that they turned out good. Kayden was the hardest, which was a surprise to me. Man them older kids have that fake smile down!!! You have to work hard to get a real one. LOL Christmas cards will be in the mail MOnday... I know I'm a slacker. That's why they say happy holidays instead of merry christmas :-)

Baby Girl's Fetal Echo

Well today was the un-anticipated fetal echo at Primary Children's Medical Center. They say that most times congenital heart defects are very rare to show up in more than one child. And that most times they are just flukes. Well, unfortunately in our family, this isn't the case. The echo showed that our baby girl has the exact same heart defect that our little sky sky had. A ventricular septal defect right next to the valve. I get to go back on January 8th for a follow up echo and we hope that the defect will be closed. If not, we will do all of the appointments for echo's, ekg's and dr. appointments that we did with sky. They will give her 6-8 months to close it on her own. If it doesn't close, well then we know what happens. She will have surgery and everything will be all better. I mean... honestly... look at the little terror in the pictures above. You would never guess that he was a heart baby. He is happy, healthy, and a STUD!!! And she has one thing that he didn't have... an amazing older brother who knows exactly what she is going through. I think that they will have a special little bond that will get her through whatever lies ahead. Wish us luck.

Snakes and Santa!!

So this past weekend we went to a Sub for Santa party at one of tyler's work buddies house. It was pretty fun. There was Santa that came and a reptile girl that came. There were tons of snakes for the kids to see... and the grand finale was a 150 lb snake. Skylar really liked that one. He played with it and then sat on it and bounced!!!! YIKES. I hurry and grabbed him and we left. I didn't want that snake to turn on him. But before we left I put him on Santa's lap... that lasted about 0.2 seconds. All in all, it was fun.
