here it goes...

It all started the day after my birthday.... Jesse and I had the day off of work due to mutiple doctor's appointments.. the morning appointments went great- I had been able to control my gestational diabetes with just diet and exercise.. and we got to see our little one in an ultra sound!!! Then we went to my OB appointment and it went all downhill... my blood pressure, which had been steadily rising, was through the roof and my doctor wanted me to be admitted to the hospital immediately so that I could be closely monitored... she was worried that I might be in the beginning stages of preeclampsia... So thursday night was spent in the hospital and everything thing seemed to be o.k. They started me on the steroids to help develope the baby's lungs once I got admitted which kinda made me nervous that she would be making an early arrival... things continued o.k. til Friday (the 18th) around 8:30 p.m. when we got some test results back that were much worse than earlier test results.. the nurse called my doctor who decided that we had to do an emergency C-section.. the procedure started at 10:00 p.m. and baby was born at 10:07!!! Her lungs still weren't quite developed so they had to give her a shot to help them inflate and then she was on a little bit of oxygen for about a day.... I can't describe how hard it is to see your new little bundle of joy for the first time with an i.v. in her head and oxygen in her nose, not to mention all of the monitors that are constantly making noises.... our little K.C. has thrived despite being 7 weeks early... she has been taken off of all of her monitors and just has a little feeding tube now that we sometimes use when she can't finish her bottle... Jesse and I are at the hospital every 3 hours to change her diaper and give her a bottle... We pray every day that she will be able to come home with us soon so that we can have more than a half hour of cuddle time!!!

I wanted to thank all of you who have put our names in the temple and kept us in your prayers.. the doctors and nurses have all commented on how advanced she is for her age.. most babies don't even start to eat from a bottle until they are 35 weeks gestation but she has been eating from a bottle from the second she was born... I am certain that it is due the the outpouring of love that has been shown by all of our family and friends!! I will be certain to keep you posted on how our girl is doing and let you know when we get to bring her home.. until then please keep her in your prayers- we will take all the extra help that we can get ;)

The greatest EVER!!!

Amidst the snow storm this saturday my friends and I gathered together for the traditional baby shower... I was so happy that everyone could make it even though winter was thrust upon us!! We were smart and actually got a picture of all of us that were there... Not very often are 3 friends pregnant at the same time but we are all due within 6 weeks of each other and we are all having.. GIRLS!!! So my face is super chubby.. I know that's why up until now I have only posted pictures of my stomach ;) and my stomach looks so much higher than the other 2 but I think that's because Lori is a little vertically challenged!!
and now for an update in the boobs vs. belly competition....
the belly has definitely won!! Although I won't lie.. the girls have put up a good fight- to the bitter end..

We are getting soo anxious for this little one to arrive.. we talk daily about what she may look like or who she will act like... If she is anything like me we are in t-r-o-u-b-l-e but we will love it all the same!!

Friday, November 20, 2009

soo thankful..

76 days til our little one arrives and I am feeling the pressure to get things done... Gratefully I have an amazing mother who has helped me through.. she has been sewing our quilt together for the bedding, sat with me for 4 hours while I had some tests done, and..... Put together this little number to cover our carseat!!!

I have to say I am absolutely in love with it!!!
If you didn't know- purple is my favorite color so you'll most likely see an overwhelming amount of purple as opposed to pink when you see our bebe's things

and who doesn't love lime green polka dots?!?
I don't know what I would do without my mom.. she is so supportive, loving, understanding.. pretty much the best mom in the whole world!! I could never repay her for all that she has and continues to do for me...

A great one...

There are lots of good men in this world but to find a "great man" is quite a feat..

A great man is the kind who sends you flowers for no reason, or writes on your bathroom mirror with chapstick a love note telling you how much you mean to him...

A great man is one who, when you are tossing and turning in the night will wake up and tickle your back or play with your hair until your are peacefully sleeping...

A great man is the guy who tells you how beautiful you are no matter what you look like..

A great man does things that make you laugh, especially when you are ornery or having a bad day.

A great man treats you like his queen- never getting angry or raising his voice to you even if you are quite possibly raising your voice to him...

A great man knows when ice cream or hot chocolate are just what you need..

I am sooo lucky to have spent this past year with a great man like this..

There are so many other things that I could say about my amazing husband and all that he does for me but I will say this...

He is perfect for me and makes me happier than anyone I have ever known..

Just when I think that I love him so much, he finds another way to make me fall even deeper in love with him.. I will forever be grateful that I didn't settle for one of those good men and waited until I found


Happy one year anniversary babe!

Jesse and I made a trip to the temple last night.. it seems things always come up the day that we plan on going but we were determined to make it there last night! I was so grateful that we did.. the room was FULL (almost to capacity) and as I sat and looked at everyone- from all different places and situations in life, dressed in white, equal and united together for one purpose- I was overwhelmed with emotion and gratitude... As peace and warmth enveloped me I soaked it all in and knew that I was in the right place and loved!

Happy Halloween Y'all

Can i just say that I wish overalls were still "in style"?!? they are so comfortable!!
oh ya and what a difference a week makes?? I swear I wake up some mornings things have grown ;)

It's been awhile....

So it all started on a beautiful day.... the family decided to do some boating while the good weather was still around ( in Utah that can change in the blink of an eye) As I climbed into the boat, I heard the plop of something hitting the water and looked to see my cute pink camera sinking to the bottom... Luckily Jesse was right there and quickly scooped it out.. but not soon enough.. the damage had been done..( picture of the dam second before it swallowed my camera)

But then... we remembered that we had not had the camera for very long and it still was under warranty.. so we shipped it off to Sony about 10 days ago and yesterday there was a lovely package on my doorstep.. complete with my fixed camera at the cost of $6 (for shipping)!! I am not usually a lucky person so I am extremely grateful that this situation worked out!!

As promised here are some pics of the belly at 25 weeks..

it has indeed been a while since I posted pictures so let's keep that in mind when marveling at the largeness of my belly...

Here's a view from the top... the girls are still bigger than the belly.. but not for too much longer!
and the side view...
I am now officially deducting pounds off of my weight gain to take into account the pounds that our little princess weighs (I couldn't really justify taking ounces off before!!) It makes me feel better! anyone else guilty of the same?????

I understand...

so many of my friends have mentioned the fact that they have missed being pregnant after their little once arrives. Up until this point I have contemplated what they could have missed...

-Not fitting into any of their "cute clothes"

-Swollen body parts (face,hands,feet,calves, etc...)

-an excess of gas (which is uncontrollable might I add)

-being forced to wear flat shoes or suffering immensely in the name of fashion

-adjusting to sleeping on your side instead of your back
-Back pain from Hades

o.k. so you probably get the picture... bringing new life into this world-(as many of you know) is not a walk in the park... but if for sure is worth it.. There are few things in this world that can compare to knowing that you have a healthy and active baby moving around inside you.. Most of you don't know (cuz I never shared) that a little while ago we did some tests and the results were a little shocking.. they said there was a chance that our baby could have Down Syndrome.. Jesse and I knew that despite the results we would love our baby- no matter what!! Well we have since had more tests done and found out that the first results were incorrect and our little girl doesn't appear to have anything wrong with her. Needless to say it was an emotional 4 weeks that we endured but it was amazing the peace we felt knowing that everything was going to be o.k. I am so grateful for family (especially my amazing husband) who were so supportive, and a loving Heavenly Father and Savior who certainly knew how to succor me in my time of need.

This morning as I was contemplating whether to get out of bed or not.. I began to feel the now familiar baby movements in my stomach... for a little while I just laid there with my hand over my belly and enjoyed every second of knowing that my little girl is alive and healthy. I can honestly say for the first time I understood what all my friends talk about when they say they missed being pregnant and I felt so, so priviledged to be a where I am right now!.. My mind wandered to months or even years down the road when I may feel like I did this morning-not wanting to get out of bed- and it will be this same little girl who will more-than-likely be there again.. only probably standing next to the bed encouraging her mommy to get up and start the day... Words can't express how excited I am for this new phase of my life.. Sure it will be full of responsibility and work, laughter and tears, pain and happiness.. isn't that what makes life LIFE?!?

FYI: I dropped my camera in the dam about a month ago so excuse my lack of pictures... once I get a new camera I will make-up for lost time!!

warms my insides!!

There's no doubt about it... Fall is officially here with cool mornings-moderate afternoons and freezing nights!!! This morning I just couldn't get warm so before leaving for work I busted out my Cocomotion.. put a little milk and chocolate cinnamon hot cocoa mix in and let it go.. For those of you who are not familiar with the Cocomotion and all its fabulousness (so good it deserves its own word) allow me to enlighten you..

*Cocomotion costs only $20 at your local Wal-mart
*Cocomotion is SUPER DUPER easy to use... just add milk (yes milk-not water- for X-tra creamy hot chocolate) and the hot cocoa mix of your choice (we literally have 6 cans of our "favorite" hot cocoa mixes in our cupboard)
* Cocomotion then mixes the milk and hot chocolate together while heating them to a perfect hot-but not scalding- temperature with a little added scrumptious froth on the top
Jesse and I formed a serious addiction to hot chocolate and our Cocomotion last winter and I am giddy-like a school girl- to start right back up where we left off!!

you can run but you can't hide...

I can not tell a lie..... Ashlee Simpson has one of "the BEST" nose jobs in Hollywood.. How unfortunate for her that she will ever be reminded what she used to look like cuz apparently her "old nose" found it's way on to baby Bronx's face!!!!

Any of you know of someone that has had this happen to them.. I happen to know of more than one and they aren't all movie stars!!

Sugar and Spice

and everything nice...

That's what little girls are made of.

Sunshine and Rainbows

and ribbons for hair bows....

That's what little girls are made of.

Tea parties, laces

and baby doll faces...

That's what little girls are made of.

There's no doubt in my mind that our little girl will be full of it... We can hardly wait!!!

Friday, September 11, 2009


Well the final countdown is finally here.. we find out on Tuesday what this little cherub will be- and we are SUPER excited!!
According to our poll (you) looks like the pink won and a girl will be in the future...
I was curious and decided to look in to what some "old wives tales" say about what our baby will be...

The chinese birth chart takes into consideration your age, and month of conception and it looks like a 27 yr. old who conceived in May can expect.. A little Girl...

Aparently if since I am carrying my weight out front.. it's a boy
and the fact that the hair on my legs doesn't grow faster now than before points to- a Girl
people have told me that I am carrying this little one "high" which is another sign- Girl
My feet are not any colder than usual (but it's freakin 90 outside how could they) which means...Girl
Jesse is still as skinny as ever which means... Girl
I guess not puking my brains out during the first 3 months means.. a boy for me
My "chest development" has been quite dramatic (no complaints from the hubby on that one) which could only mean.. Girl
When holding a needle on thread over my belly is circled which means.. Blue
It seems that my cravings for donuts, oreos, ice cream, chocolate.. yep they all indicate a Girl
My button nose has remained buttony (not a real word but oh-well)... Girl
150's is where this baby's heart is always beating which means.. Girl
My tummy resembles a basketball which means.. a little jock (boy) is in the future
I have had headaches and lots of them and apparently... a boy is the cause
and one more to top off the list...
my mom's dyed, un-gray hair.. means another girl to the clan
What have some of you done to predict gender??
Now that you know more about me and my pregnancy than you ever wanted.. you can do the math and see that the PINK far outweighs the BLUE.. I suppose it would only be fair to tell you, however, that I feel pretty certain that it's a boy... In my dreams the baby for sure has "x-tra parts" if you know what I am sayin!

Life is meant to be celebrated!

Dorothy Hadley Cole

October 9 1917-August 29 2009

The last words my grandma spoke directly to me were "I love you too".. I don't think you can ask for much more than that.. This post about my grandma a few months ago pretty much sums up the way that I feel about little Dorothy...

I am still not sure of what I will do when I can't go to my grandma's and have her ask me if I have a rinse on my hair, or hear her call bullshit when she thinks someone is pulling her leg. We could never have had her funeral in a church cuz you can't tell a "Dorothy" story without some form of swearing! She was feisty and stubborn until the very end but I wouldn't have expected anything less. There are so many lessons that my grandma has taught me through word and action that I will never forget. Grandma Cole accomplished so much in her life that there is nothing to do but celebrate who she is and all that she stood for.

All I can say is that I am grateful to have known her, grateful to have spent her last night on earth with her, grateful to know that she is out of pain and discomfort, and very very grateful to know that families are forever and that I will see my grandma again!!

Some advice from little Dorothy herself:

"Scratch it if it itches even if it's in your britches!"

My oh my...

how time flies... (yes I am standing in a bathroom to take this picture but the lighting was lovely!)

(me at 17 weeks)

I am sure some of you may remember my paranoia about gaining weight whilst pregnant... I loved all of the advice that was given by you experienced mothers and I am honestly trying to figure out what works best for me and my body... I would be lying if I said that I have never had a "near" break-down when trying to find something to wear to church (luckily I decided to do it on saturday night or it may have turned into a full-on breakdown), I am also guilty of browsing parenting websites to compare pictures of other women's bellies that are as far along as I am, and there are days where I look in the mirror and I think that my face looks a little on the full side and I don't feel pretty.. but all those moments and feelings are fleeting and quickly replaced by overwhelming happiness and elation at being able to experience motherhood and all that accompanies it....

The other night (around 3:30am) I was tossing and turning trying to stay asleep and just hoping, hoping, hoping that my full and somewhat painful bladder would somehow disappear if I could just get in the right position when all of a sudden upon turning on my side I felt what I thought was bugs crawling on me, as I aroused myself from my sleepy state of being- I realized that the sensation wasn't on the outside of my belly but inside and those "bugs" just happened to be my baby wide awake (I think we may have a night owl on our hands!) and moving around. As I sat there for a little while, enjoying the feeling of life inside me, it was emotional to say the least and made me realize that it's all worth it- all of it!!

Just my Luck..

I am in need of some new winter boots... and I had my eyes set on these beauties.. in brown and black of course so I would have a pair for nearly every outfit but.....

Due to circumstances ( the heat, swollen and painful feet) I am afraid that I will have to catch these lovelies on sale next spring...

I am lucky that this season is all about "flats".. and I happen to like these boots too.. even if pants will drag and my legs won't look as long ...It's comforting to know that everywhere I look there are plenty of fun styles of flat shoes...

I know I am late in joining this fashion trend- so help me out... where do you find your cute flat shoes?!?

Wednesday, August 12, 2009


So I am admitting that I watched "America's Got Talent" last night but for a very good reason.. These 5 sisters are from Morgan, UT! Carli (my sis) has danced with 3 of them since she was little... They danced last night and did AMAZING!!Tonight we find out if they have made it to the semi-finals.. if they do...
I most certainly am not encouraging to anyone to watch the above mentioned show.. (I rather despise the majority of the acts) but I thought we should support these home-town mommas who happen to be one of very few acts that are indeed talented!!!

What a Cutie!!

Just thought this picture was pretty awesome!!
Isn't this an amazing view?!?
And.. I love that it is my cute hubby sitting there looking for elk!!

The Belly...

Next time I will:
Not wear this color of shirt
Not take a picture right after eating
Get ready before taking the picture so a full body shot is an option (not promised but an option)

For now.. this is all you get!

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

There Comes a time when you have to decide...
Boy or Girl- you have got to pick a side.
If it's blue that you're feelin then a vote for "Boy" is a must...
A Boy in the future will mean cars, guns and pockets full of dust!
But if it's a Girl-and that's what your vote will be...

Summer Days

So all things baby aside here are a couple things we have been up to so far this summer....

The girls and I got together for Tiff's birthday bash... we had the worst service EVER at Piccolo Bros. in ogden but once the food got there it was pretty yummy... and of course we couldn't pass up a photo op afterwards!! To say Jesse is a HUGE George Straight fan is an understatement.. when we heard he was coming to utah we just had to go to the concert (umm well one of us just had to go and the other tagged along like a supportive, loving, generous spouse should ;))
Judging by the size of the crowd, Jesse isn't the only fan in the state.. I have never seen more people at USANA... Just in case you forgot what we look like... I love pictures like this cuz our eye colors couldn't be more different... it makes me curious as to what color our bambino's will be?!? Any guesses????

FYI: I am blaming my chubby face on the closeness of the camera...

Friday, July 17, 2009

Just a little favor...

So... I know that the sudden surge of hormones that some women experience during pregnancy can make them want "IT" all the time.. well I would like to take this opportunity to suggest something- please don't take offense- but I thought maybe you could keep this wonderful news a secret between you and your husband?!? I think it would be so much fun!!

And in all honesty those of us who are not so fortuitous find it hard to compete with these goddesses of love.. and don't even get me started on my cute little hubster who is anxiously anticipating when "the insatiable desire" is going to strike his wife- resulting in the minimum of 3 hot and sweaty sessions a day.. ha ha

Thank You-The End

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Please, tell me I am not the only one???

So last night was a rough one, I had woken up as usual at an insanely early hour to relieve my full bladder and was able to drift back to sleep quickly.. then for some unknown reason i found myself awake again just an hour later.. I sat and tried to discover why the helk i was wide awake- did I need to pee again? was I hot? was there something waking me up? umm no to all of these so I tried every possible position on the bed but I just couldn't get comfortable. Finally it dawned on me.. I was hungry! and not just normal middle of the night hungry- i was starving. So... I got my little booty out of bed as my husband is asking me where I am going at 2:30 in the morning... To the kitchen I was off. I scoured the fridge for something appetizing and then remembered the leftover egg drop soup.. which I accompanied with some yummy Triskets and of course let's not forget the half of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich that I never finished for dinner- it couldn't go to waste!!! Ha Ha I nearly laughed out loud the entire time I just sat in my kitchen with nothing but the moon to light my way and I ate until I felt content...

So back to my question... how many of you- pregnant or not- have ever had a middle of the night snack fest??? what did you eat?? and did you regret it?? I have to say i most definitely did not regret it one bit.. the whole time I kept thinking----

this hungry at 2:30+5 more hours of sleep= starving and morning sickness when I wake up.. umm no thanks!

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Keepin it real..

For those of you who couldn't quite figure out how long 209 days is (I thought I would make you work for it) the due date for baby Rowe is Feb. 4 2010 which means I am nearly 11 weeks pregnant!! Now some of you.. don't hate me but I haven't really been sick.. I just barely threw up for the first time yesterday (TMI?!?) so I have NOTHING to complain about...

Like I mentioned a couple of months ago the whole gaining weight thing is hard for me (not the actual gaining of weight cuz that is suprisingly all to easy but the idea of it) so I am grateful that Jesse and I decided to do a health competition before we found out we were expecting.. It really has been so helpful to not eat sugar and drink plenty of water as well as exercising 6 days a week... hopefully once the competition ends I won't succumb to all of my "junk food" cravings!

As far as the telling of our parents I found this cutest website where you can design your own onesies and so I had one of these made for each of the grandparents (the one below is for my mom.)

Thanks so much for all of your cute and kind comments!! You all are too nice.. really, but we are super excited and for those that don't know Jesse- trust me he will make the best daddy ever.. although I may end up feeling like I always have one more child than I do!! I totally plan on keeping you all posted for the next 6 months or so....

The countdown is ON...

It seems like the older you get the quicker time passes... it used to seem like an eternity from one Christmas to another but now the jolly time of year comes much to soon (yes I am a procrastinator in the gift buying department!).. well as usual things in our lives are going quickly.. summer is almost half over and yet I feel like we haven't really done anything..

Here are some of the things we have on the books in the next little while..

13 days til Lilah gets fixed ;(
about 3 weeks til Jesse's birthday (the big 24!)
28 days til Bridger Lake.. I am going to attempt fly fishing!
77 days til Aida at Tuacon with "the girls"
113 days til Halloween
125 days til San Diego with the Hollis Clan
127 days til our 1st anniversary
160 days til the big 2-8 for me...
followed shortly by Christmas (9 days later)
and last but certainly not least......
209 days til baby Rowe arrives!!
As I was saying before.. it seems like an eternity but I am sure it will be here sooner than we expect... we are so excited and feel truly blessed!

Friday, June 26, 2009

absolutely random

Just finished my daily morning bowl of cereal.. as I sat slurping up any remnants of the milk I started thinking about how much I look forward to the taste of the milk after soaked the cereal...

Obviously now my cereal choices are quite boring (rice chex, raisin bran, kashi shredded wheat) but the milk still tastes scrumdiddlyumptious!!!

As a little kid my favorite cereals to eat (because they made the milk taste AMAZING) were Lucky Charms, Trix, Cocoa Puffs, Fruit Loops, and Captain Crunch.. I loved dipping my buttery toast in the milk too- something about that sweet and salty combination! Just thinking about it makes me want to go out and buy some "kids" cereals so I can re-live my childhood memory!!!

How do you guys feel... do you like to drink the milk after eating cereal and if so... what cereals flavor the milk just to your liking?!?

Some kind of wonderful...

Last night as I lay in bed I and tossed and turned~ from my right side to my left to my back to my stomach

All the while my sweet hubby is sleeping peacefully... even softly snoring from time to time...

As my battle with sleep raged on I became desperate after what seemed like an eternity I was losing my fight... I was almost at the point of tears...

I was on my right side-facing away from the hubby when out of the blue I felt kisses on my shoulder and then my cheek...

He sat up in bed (so he wouldn't be tempted to doze off) and softly tickled my back, belly, arms, face, and hair....

That's the last thing I remember.. softly slipping away as I allowed my husband to completely and utterly love me!!

I seriously love him... seriously!!

I wanna Rock and Roll

While watching the Tony's last night I was intrigued by a new musical that just debuted on Broadway in April... It's called- Featuring Constantine from idol (for all you die-hards)

Here's what the synopsis of the show said from their website www.rockofagesmusical.com
In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small town girl met a big city rocker and in LA’s most famous rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the 80s. It’s ROCK OF AGES, an arena-rock love story told through the mind-blowing, face-melting hits of JOURNEY, NIGHT RANGER, STYX, REO SPEEDWAGON, PAT BENATAR, TWISTED SISTER, POISON, ASIA, WHITESNAKE and many more. Don’t miss this awesomely good time about dreaming big, playing loud and partying on!
What can I say?!?
You can take the child out of the 80's but you can't take the 80's out of the child!!
I think I need to plan a trip the NYC REAL soon!!
