Wow, it has been a while!! I can't believe how fast this summer has come and gone. I feel like we havent stopped since Boston came to us in June. Jayden started Kindergarten in August and Justice has now started his first year of preschool. They are both absolutly loving it!! I am enjoying a few min. of one on one time with each of them, while the other is at school. I can't believe how busy I feel now, adding one more into the mix. And to actually have to be on a schedule is killing me! I feel like all I do is run kids around all day. I run from preschool, to Kindergarten, to Soccer games on Tues and Thurs. I feel like I am home for two minutes in between. Boston is a real trooper!! Speaking of Boston, he is getting so big!!! He was in the 95% in his heigth and 75% in weight at his two month check up. He is laughing and interacting with us now. I love this stage. He is a ton of fun. He has been sleeping 8 hours a night for about 2 months now and sometimes will go up to 11 hours!!!! I am so spoiled and I'm loving it. Here are a few pictures of him as well as the other boys and some of the things we did this summer.

Ok, funny of the day. Last night we were eating dinner and Taylor and I were talking about me nursing Boston. Well, Jayden is listening to this conversation (better than I thought) and he says to me "mom what is nursing?" So I proceed to tell him that its when Boston eats milk from my boobs. Then he gets this really confused look on his face and said "THATS AMBERS JOB?!!!!" My sister is a Registured Nurse!! I about fell off my chair laughing!!! So funny! I love the funny things my kids say!! Taylor made sure that the whole "nurse" and "nursing" thing made sense to him. Two COMPLETLY different things:)

Boston was born on Wed. June 3rd at 9:57 AM! He weighed 8lbs and was 20 inches long. We are so happy that he is finally here and that he is a healthy boy. He came 10 days early. I just can't picture life without him....and I feel so guilty that I was sad that he wasn't a little girl because now, I can't see it any other way!!!! I love him so much!!! He brings so much love into our home. It is so amazing how much you can love a little baby. He is changing everyday and it makes me so sad to think he will only be little for a minute. Jayden and Justice love him to pieces and are so proud of their little brother. They are so cute with him. They love to talk to him and hold him. He has the cutest little cry! I love to just sit and hold him, and study his face.
Taylor melts my heart when I see him with Boston. He is such a sweet dad and loves his boys and I more than anything in the world. I feel so blessed to have him as my husband. He has been an awesome help with changing diapers and feeding Boston so I can have a little break.
Mom, you have been an angel! I don't know what I would do without you. It has been so nice to have you here to help with getting adjusted. I love you so much!

It has been an exciting couple of weeks for us. Jayden lost his first two teeth! He is so cute without them! He was so excited to experience the whole toothfairy thing. He worked and worked on wiggling those teeth loose. He pulled them out all by himself.
Justice learned to ride his bike without any training wheels. K, the kid is 3 years old!!! He just cruises like he has been riding his "2 wheeler" forever without the training wheels. The kid has no fear. In fact, he tried to jump the curb like the older kids and totally ate it. Needless to say, he has some road rash on his forhead and nose! At least its not stitches:) He avoided cracking the head open.
Last but not least, I am 35 weeks along now!!!! Holy moly, It has been a long pregnancy. I am so ready to be done. I waddle, can't sleep, have heartburn, my legs and feet ache, look like a whale.......bla bla bla. Only those that have been pregnant can appreciate the last month and how hard it is. But it is all worth it in the end:)
We got Boston's room painted and the crib up with the bedding. I also refinished a dresser last weekend and got it ready to go. All we need is a baby now:)

Such a fun tag!!
1- Where were you when you first found out you were pregnant? Just at home in Spanish Fork.
2- Who was with you? I was just alone. Tay was at work.
3- How did you find out that you were pregnant? Ya know, I just felt like crap. I was SO SO tired I knew I had to be pregnant!! So I took a test and it said negative, so I took another one, and another one, until finally It showed up a couple weeks later. I think I knew I was pregnant the second it happened.
4- What was your first reaction to finding out you were pregnant? I was super excited. But at the same time I went, "crap, what am I going to do with 3"
5- Who was the first person you told? I called Taylor and told him he was a stud.
6-Did you plan to get pregnant? yep, and it happened the week I got my IUD out. (Sorry that was probley too much information.) We don't have any problems getting pregnant. I'll put it that way.
7- Did you tell everyone else right away? No, but we didn't wait very long either. They were all speculating anyways, so we just told them at 6 weeks. I couldn't hide it anymore. I just felt too crapy.
8-Was everybody happy for you? Oh ya!!
9- Did you go out and celebrate? I don't think so. We were putting our yard in, so if you call that a party then yes.
10- Did you want to find out the sex? Yes!!! I couldn't handle NOT knowing.
11- What was the sex? BOY! At least thats what the Dr. told me so I believe him. I was in denial for a while but it has sunk in.

13- If yes, who?
14- Did you get any outfits at the baby shower that you just knew you weren't going to put on your baby?
15- How much weight did you gain? ALOT. I"m not going there. Its a sore subject. Ya just kind of want to quit counting once you gain so much. (mabe after the baby I will disclose how much baby weight I loose.:)
16- Did you lose all of the weight that you gained? I am bound and determined to loose every pound and then some!!!!!!!!
17- Did you get a lot of stretch marks? No, I guess I can quit crying about my weight gain, at least I don't get stretch marks!
18- What did you crave the most? Oh, my land. I want to each captain crunch cereal everyday. But I have had a total sweet tooth this time. BAD I know!
19- Did you crave anything crazy? Not really
20- Who or what got on your nerves the most? I hate the fact that I can barely move and I still have 10 weeks left. This little guy is SO low. I haven't been able to excercise hardly at all because of a few complications and I feel like I have no control over my body (or anything for that matter) and it ticks me off SO BAD!!!!!! I cant sleep either:(
21- Were you married at the time?YES
22- Did you have any complications during your pregnancy? I bled for the first 2 1/2 months, not fun. Then I pulled a muscle in my stomach trying to run. If I move a lot in one day, or move wrong it still hurts.
