Brady's baby blessing

 It was great to have all our family and friends come to support us for Brady's baby blessing.

More Pictures of our little Brady

 Here are just some cute pictures of our little Brady!

The birth of Brady!

 This is me before we left for the hospital at 5 in the morning, not only was it super early, I didn't sleep at all the night before due to nerves and a horrible cold.
 At 3:00 pm our little surprise entered the world.  Dr. Lowder made me figure out for myself what we had, it was a BOY!  Dr. Lowder also had me pull Brady out once his head and shoulders were out, once he was on my belly, he peed on me.  
 There are my amazing boys!  Ben wanted to fit in with the doctor and nurses so he wore the cute little glasses.

Almost ready to be ready to POP!

We almost have everything done, we are getting SO close!
 This is right before we got the carpet in.
 Again right before we got the carpet.
 There it is, sadly the carpet only remained that pretty for an hour or so, now its covered in boxes!
 Sorry still haven't figured out how to rotate a picture, any help on that would be great!  I'll get pictures of what it looks like with our furniture soon, we are almost all unpacked.  I recommend never to move when you are 8 months pregnant.
 Here is my shower in Idaho.  Thanks Holly for throwing if for me, it turned out great!
 Thanks to all who were able to make it!  Sorry we missed a few people they left before we thought about a picture.
 Here is an adorable motorcycle diaper cake thing!
 Here is the baby's crib, can't wait till our little one gets here.  It's room is all ready :)
 This was my first sewing project in a lot of years,  I haven't sewed since high school and I remember very little, again thanks to Holly for her help.  I wouldn't have been able to take a picture of it had I done it on my own, it would have looked awful!
Here is another view, also thanks Lisa for letting us borrow the car seat!  We have been very blessed by very generous family members in lending us baby things!
I also made a nursing cover, this was a little bit easier but still a challenge, one day I'll get good at this sewing thing.

So we are ready for this baby anytime now!  I guess I still have 2 1/2 weeks till I'm due and it could come late so I'll try not to get too anxious.  We will keep you all posted on when our little family becomes 3!  We will hopefully be officially moved in on Saturday.

Emotional or Moody??

So I feel like I have been super emotional the last week or two but as I was telling that to my sister in law Ben quickly said that I have been moody not emotional.  Thanks dear!  :)  Emotional just sounds more acceptable than moody.  So whatever you want to call it its been a little rough. Regardless of what Ben calls it he is still sensitive enough to bring me flowers home for one of my "rough days"!  Love my husband.

I got shingles a few weeks ago so hopefully that will clear up soon and I also found out that my mom has to have a pretty major surgery. Of course all she is worried about is getting it done and over with so that she can come up here to take care of me when I have the baby.  I have such a sweet mom.  I hand't planned to travel down to Utah again before I had the baby but it appears I'll make it down one more time to take care of my mom.  I'm grateful that my job can go with me where ever I go and that I can easily go take care of her.

We continue to work on our house.  I'm pretty sure that deciding what colors to paint is what caused my shingles, I've heard they come on by stress and well the paint colors have caused me a TON or stress.  I think we have finally figured it all out.  We tried red and blue but after walking into the house after we had painted it I felt like I was in Ronald McDonald's house (not sure why) so we tried a light brown/tan and red and I felt so much better about that.  Now we just have to paint it all now.

Our House Projects

Here was our first DIY project, we bought a headboard that needed a little tlc, it would be super cute for a little girl but we needed it for our bedroom.

Here is the finished project, we realized in our first project that Ben is more of a perfectionist than I am.  He made us sand forever!  And we didn't have an electric sander so it was all done by hand. 

Our first real house
 This will be our first real house that we will live in.  It was a short sell, we put the offer in in September of 2011 and finally closed on it June 25 2012.  Luckily we have had a place to live in the meantime.  We need to do some trimming and yard work. 

Front Room
Here is the front room before picture.



Sorry I don't know how to rotate the picture let me know if you know how.

 Bathroom in progress
We were going to leave the bathroom linoleum because it actually looked good but then there were some water problems so the bathroom got new tile too.

Kitchen in Progress
We ripped up all the carpet and linoleum.  

Tiling in progress and deciding on paint colors as you can tell .

Tiling still in progress.  This took a lot longer than Ben had planned but I guess most projects do.  

Here is the tiling done without the grout.

Bathroom tiling done!

Grouting the tile.
