Its A BOY!!!

Yay!! We just had our ultrasound yesterday and we are having another little boy!! We couldn't be happier! It's so exciting to know Cam will have a little friend to grow up with. Him and Jared are SO excited :) I could have sworn it was a girl, only because this pregnancy is completely opposite my first one, but we were happy for the news of a boy. I am due August 22nd. The dead of summer :) We will see how I hold up :)

P.S. Camden already named the baby, his name is "Baby Batman." Cam is so cute, he will come up to my belly and say "hi Baby Batman!" And give him a big hug and a kiss. He will be such a good big brother.

Happy Anniversary!

It was our 4 year anniversary yesterday! We actually celebrated our anniversary last weekened. We finally, for the first time since cam was born, left him with my sister and stayed overnight at Anniversary Inn! ( i know its totally lame it took me this long to leave him.) It was SO nice to have a break. Its amazing what one night away can do. We went to a nice dinner and then to the REAL soccer game. It was a great night. I wish we could do that every weekened. I wish I had pictures. All our pics are in storage :( Happy Anniversary honey! Thanks for an amazing 4 years.

Camden, the artist

Cam is an artist.. Cam loves to draw. He could draw forever. He likes using stickers in his drawings too. I love watching him create his pictures. He is left handed and someone once told me, some of the best artists are left handed. I am hoping he is as talented as his dad. Don't you think, by looking at his creation, he is going to be a good artist?

We Are Moving!

Sorry we haven't been around for a while. We are getting ready to move and things are getting hectic. Yes, we may have finally sold our house! We will hopefully close at the end of the month, if all goes as planned. No, we have not found a house to move into yet so i guess we are living in my dads shop van! Honestly, we are not sure where we are going yet so we will see. We are really excited to move and be in a bigger place. Hopefully everything will work out!

On Saturday, Jared and I had just put Camden in his crib for a morning nap. We could hear him on the monitor kinda playing around, which he always does before he falls asleep. All of a sudden we hear this weird commotion and then Cam burst into tears. I knew EXACTLY what had happened. I had this awful gut feeling about what had happened. I ran upstairs faster than I thought I could and opened his door and he was lying on the FLOOR under the computer desk! He had FALLEN OUT!! WHAT?? I picked him up and immediately did the whole body check to make sure he wasn't bleeding anywhere or had any broken bones. He was just fine. Just a little scratch on his leg. I burst into tears. My adrenaline had run out and I felt completely limp. I can not believe that happened! I am SO GREAT FULL that he was not hurt in any way. He was probably mostly scared. As was I. I KNOW for a fact that I am not the only one that this has happened to. At least I hope I'm not. PLEASE help me feel better and tell me I'm not just a bad mom.

So, the day after Thanksgiving we went to Moab with Jared's family. Everyone has Jeeps so they wanted to go "jeeping."We bought a backpack for Cam and went hiking. The backpack is our new favorite thing. Cam really liked it. Cam did really well but let me just say, Moab and "jeeping" is NOT a good place for a one year old. Needless to say it was not the much needed relaxing vacation I hoped it would be. We will just leave it at that :)

Just hiding in the bushes with Grandpa

This has to be my favorite picture. The scenary on our hike was gorgeous!

Pumpkins, Monsters & Birthday Cake!

I finally get to blog about my cute little buddy and all we have been up to. Just as a side note to those who asked about my surgery, I wish I could say I had a boob job or something fabulous like that but all it was was an umbilical hernia repair. Sounds SO stupid and embarrassing. I am fine now. Here are just a few ( ok alot) of pics of the pumpkin patch, Halloween and cams birthday. Camden loved his birthday party. Thank you to all who came and made it so fun. I honestly didn't think Cam would even touch his birthday cake but he loved it!

Every little kid has to have a Mr. Potato head!

Playing XBox at Daddy's office. What a cute little monster.

Cam went trick or treating at Jared's office.

Jared is Famous!!

If you ever watch the Nicktoons network you would know that they are having their annual animated short film festival. On Wednesday (Oct 29th) they aired one of the films that Jared worked on while attending BYU. The film is called "Pajama Gladiator." We were SO excited to see it aired on national television, even if it was only Nicktoons network. And yes, his name was there at the end of the film. I was so proud to see my husbands name on a film on tv. They are announcing the winners tonight, so I will keep you posted. Here is the link. I don't know how long it will work. It's a great film! You have to see it!
P.S. watch for Jared's name! :)
