132 And Up

Okay, so still playing catch up. For this week of catch up I decided to reverse the order of the pictures, oldest to newest... as well this is the week that changed everything.

Day 132
Wednesday, May 12th
See that tired worn out looking guy brushing his teeth in the hospital?
That is because this day was supposed to be morning trip to the temple..
and then an afternoon at the Dino museum with the kids...
my water breaking at 32 weeks was not part of the plan

Day 133
Thursday, May 13th
Still in the hospital trying to keep the baby in.
IV's and I don't always work so well..
My wrist is still all bruised up from this two weeks later

I think the hospital was trying to get me fat.

and well I forgot to take any pictures

Day 139
Wednesday, May 19th
I'm cheating again..
but hey I just had a baby at 32 weeks, I think I can cheat.
This was the kids second visit.
Ryder was the most alert and opened his eyes more than he ever had during this visit.

So almost all caught up now... once I get caught up I will try and post pictures more regularly.

Still shooting

Okay.. I am still taking pictures. Now that things are getting a little more normalish.. if you consider being stuck 700 miles from home normal, I am going to get pictures posted on this blog again. I am just trying to figure the best way to get caught up. Plus I am waiting for my husband to bring the cord to our stupid point and shoot camera. It can't use just the standard USB cord of course but has this little small one... and I used that camera all of the days I was in the hospital.

So what do you think is the best way to post two weeks worth of pictures?

Thursday, May 13, 2010


Still taking pictures... But it might be a while until they are up... We are on vacation in Utah and while we were here my water broke... I am only 32 weeks along. You can read about it on my main blog.

Day 123-126

Well I am definitely not getting any better about posting a picture a day... but I am still taking one a day. So from newest to oldest:

126I came home last night to see this giant beauty hanging on the wall.
Eric picked it out all by himself.
Yes I am one very lucky women with a husband with great taste!

In an effort to let go and say yes:
When I was asked "can we play in the sprinklers"


Dramatic Acting?
Or ducking from water balloons?

If you picked the later you are right.

When I sit at the computer and look up
this is what I see.
How about you?
(Part of a Hawaiian quilt in case you are wondering)

Why one should never put the left over spaghetti sauce on top of the yogurts.

Day 120, 121, 122

Day 122I think it should be a law that any sign or warnings made should rhyme.
It just makes thing more fun that way.

Day 121
I convinced him to roll down the grass along side the driveway,
rather than the driveway itself..
much better choice if you ask me.

Day 120
"Should we stop and get some donuts?"
Alex didn't say no, so we did.
