Well we have been busy busy lately.. especially this last weekend. Ryan and I both had family in town which was crazy.. but so fun! Ryan's little brother Carson graduated from Rocky Mountain! Ryan's Grandma, Aunt, Uncle and Cousins came from Utah to be part of his big day! It was so fun to get to see them, and we are so happy they made the trip! We had a dinner at Ryan's mom's house before graduation, which was deelish! We dropped Peyton off with my parents before we went to the graduation because we would have never made it through with her! She just cannot sit for things like that.. she is much to busy. She had so much fun running around with lots of cousins, uncles and dogs at Grandma and Grandpa's house. The graduation was quite long, like most are but surprisingly more entertaining than most! The student speech was given by two of Carson's friends, and they did their speech together and a "duet" and it was hilarious! They also made up different words to Katy Perry's song "firework" which they sang together, while one of them played the ...... They did such a great job! By far the best graduation speech I have ever heard! After graduation we went to my parents house for a little bit to visit with my family. My mom's aunt, uncle and cousins were in town because a few of their kids just moved to Boise and so they just wanted to come and visit. My parents house was pretty wild, but it was so much fun to see all of them! After we visited and picked up Peyton we went back over to Ryan's moms house and had a chocolate fountain, which we always love, and visited a little more with Ryan's family. It was a fun filled family weekend! We are so proud of Carson for graduating, especially with such good grades and so many accomplishments! Congrats Carson!!!
Love them <3
Carson loves to make me take this picture.. he just loves to point out how huge I am :) Thanks Cars!
I love love love my cousins!
This weekend also means I am 28 weeks! Time is moving slower and slower every day.. we are just so excited for our little guy to get here! This pregnancy is seeming so much longer than my first. I am not nearly as sick as I was during the first few months, but still not great. I still have a lot of nausea at night, but I am mostly just really uncomfortable. Lots of back pain, and trouble sleeping, and I am just exhausted all the time! But im hanging in there, its definitely all worth it when our little baby gets here! We just cant wait! We are not sure how yet how Peyton is going to react to her baby brother. She loves babies, im just not sure she will love having one around all the time and sharing the attention. I am not sure how much she really understands, she knows that baby brother is in mommy's tummy, and most of the time she is happy about that and talks about her baby brother, but she is not willing to be a "big sister" or and "big girl" she is still a baby too. I think once he is here, she will love being a big sister and she is going to love her baby brother so much! She is so sweet and motherly with her baby dolls, I think she will be just as sweet with him.
As if life is crazy enough with work, full time school, a two year old and a baby on the way, we decided to throw a puppy into the mix! This was not in our plans at all, but we were at Cabela's a couple weekends ago and there was a few different families selling puppies outside the store on the lawn. Ryan fell in love with the little lab puppies, and then a week later, somehow we owned a one. We got a little black lab, and he is darling! Ryan named him Boss. He was a little bit shy the first few days, but now he has warmed up and he is wild! He has been a lot of work already, but he has been so fun for Peyton and we love him!
A couple weeks ago Peyton got a really bad cut on her finger. It was really deep but they couldn't stitch it up because it was on her knuckle, so we have been having to brace it and wrap it ourselves. Since it was so deep it ended up getting a staff infection, even though we were very careful to keep it very clean. Once they got her on an antibiotic for the staff infection, she got a yeast infection, so we had to take her back to the doctor again to get another medication for her. Now that, that is getting taken care of we are thinking her finger isn't healing quite right so we have to take her back to the doctor again tomorrow and maybe to the hospital to get it x-rayed. Poor Peyton has been through a lot the last couple weeks.. we hope she gets better soon!
She was not very happy about having an ouchy on her finger
Just some random/cute pictures from the last few weeks...
