Are house plans are finally going to engineering! I bet many of you thought we were joking when we said we had house plans being drawn up....Maybe by next year they will actually be in our hands, and at that rate maybe by retirement we will build our house :)

Craft Hope

I recently found this wonderful blog called Craft Hope. I have added a logo on my side bar that inks to their site. it is a wonderful site that picks a charity and has people hand make items for those in need. Unfortunately I found it two days before the last one ended, so I was unable to participate. But when the next project is featured I plan on participating and I hope any who read this blog would like to participate also!

Dads wedding

Saturday my dad got remarried. We traveled out to the middle of nowhere for the wedding, it was in water canyon out in Colorado City. Of course when we drove through Colorado City, we played a game with the kids, who ever found someone in shorts or a short sleeved shirt wins. Crazy enough we did find of home where kids where jumping on the trampoline and they were all dressed normal, we thought for sure no one would win our game :) Water canyon was beautiful, I haven't been up there since I was a teenager. My dad and Brenda had a simple ceremony, and I don't know what was up with may dads shirt. Apparently there was a story behind it, I just know if I was Brenda I would have slugged him for wearing it! Parlee did well and slept the whole time so we were pleased. I would have never guessed our daughters first real outing would be to Colorado City, and going on some major dirt roads!

We made it a week

Today Parlee is 10 days old. She finally had her umbilical cord fall off last night, yeah changing diapers will be SO much easier, and tonight she will get her first 'real' bath! Parlee loves to sleep on her stomach unlike my other kids (isnt the picture so cute of her on her tummy). She's a strong little girl and can roll over by herself when she wants to. I had to also add a cute little bum shot, because I love how babies keep their feet and legs tucked up under them its just too cute.

Dr's appointment

Today Parlee had her first Dr appointment with Dr. Thompson. She weighed 8lbs. 13 oz. today, so she was down 7oz which the Dr said is normal. She had her PKU and hated it (cant say I blame her) Here is some cute little baby parts.


Im such a sucker for cute little girl things, so last night I had to make some bracelets to match some of Parlees new clothes heres a few of them (yeah there's more)

Random Pictures

Just some pictures of the kids.

Wow while typing this Parlee rolled from her back to her side then her tummy! Holy cow shes only 4 days old! She rolled to her side for the first time when she was two days old, and has been doing that every day since.


I love having a little girl, I love the cute girlie clothes. Tonight I made some cute braceltes to match outfits she has been given. Grandpa Black gave her the cute butterfly outfit and grandma and grandpa Stout gave her the green outfit.

Making suckers

We bought stuff to make suckers for the 4th of July....assuming I hadnt had the baby yet, but Parlee finally came so our suckers were put on hold until last night. What a fun mess!

Yup, that beached whale is me

The other night we had a birthday party out at the Hurricane park and my sister in law Maricela snapped a couple pics of my huge growth. So here I am.

Yeah Answers!

Today I had yet another midwife appointment, and I felt good when I left. She told me the reason this baby hasnt been born yet is I had I posteriorly tipped cervix, so every contraction the babies head isnt pushing on the cervix, hence I cant progress easily. It makes perfect sense, so I have to make sure I am doing a lot of leaning forward and hanging out on my hands and knees (yipee). Hopefully by doing that the baby should be at a better angle and we should hopefully (knock on wood) have a baby in the next few days!

New hair

Okay so these were taken the next day with my computer camera, so not that great of pictures. But I got my hair bleached and cut again. I swear everyday that there is no baby, it's a desperate attempt to find something to do to fill the void of no baby :) It's not as blonde as last time, but I like the color she chose.
