I realized that I still haven't put a full picture up of my piano. We've had it for several months now and it is such a blessing from our wonderful Provo neighbors. I love bringing music into our home and it is such an escape for me. This picture is just too stinking cute to not put up. Needless to say our piano is loved by many.

My sister Cristy brought it to my attention that I have been a neglectful future mother. I documented every second of my first pregnancy, but have barely done anything with this one. I do feel bad about that, but to be honest we still haven't even decided on a name and for some reason I still am not 100% sure it's a girl, so I would hate to decorate the nursery only to be shocked and disappointed. We are still floundering on a name. I can't believe what a big decision names are and how difficult it has been for us. It looks like it's going to come down to seeing her and hoping the inspiration comes. I have also had two ultrasounds and in each one they have said it's a girl, but they don't sound 100% sure, which of course makes me nervous. I would absolutely love another boy, but I do have my heart set on this being a girl, so we'll just have to wait and see. The ward threw me a baby shower and I can't believe how wonderfully generous and sweet everyone was. We received so many darling things. Girls clothes really are so so so cute! I would be so sad if I couldn't use all the adorable things we got. So since I don't have nursery pictures I guess I can at least put up more pregnancy pictures although, I feel anything but beautiful. Oh well, luckily I have a husband that makes me feel gorgeous no matter what. Lucky me! So this first one is 30 weeks.

And this one is 35 weeks

It's funny that I am carrying her the same way as I carried Collin, high and torpedoish. It makes me look smaller but it feels like I have a basketball in my stomach. I am trying to stay active by playing volleyball and basketball as well as go on walks, oh and yoga every day. Despite my best efforts I am still gaining more weight than I would like, but I shouldn't complain, my pregnancies are pretty easy for the most part.

I can't believe we have one more month until we meet our new little miracle. As nervous as I am to have 2 children, we are so excited and anxious! I can't believe how truly blessed and lucky we are. We are so fortunate to be able to receive another precious child from our Heavenly Father.

And this last gem is of our silly and sweet little Collin boy. What a delight he is. He definitely has his moments and I fear that the terrible twos are just around the corner, but oh what a blessing. He is the best helper we could have ever hoped for. He helps us do everything, and not just helps, he has to take charge and be in the middle. He loves to help daddy with any project he is doing. He especially loves to hammer and use the screwdriver. He loves to weasel his way into the middle of things. He loves to sweep, vacuum, rake, unload the dishwasher, do yardwork, and build things. We are sure a happy family! Oh and I just have to say for my records, his favorite songs right now are itsy bitsy spider; Jesus wants me for a Sunbeam; I love to see the temple; Head, shoulders, knees and toes; and he loves the little piggy rhyme. He loves his craisins as his story time bed time snack and his favorite book from the library is Block City. How did we ever get so lucky?! Isn't he just the cutest little guy!

Nice piano! That is still so amazing you were able to get that. What a huge blessing!

You are looking good! I sure hope this baby coming is a girl because I'm making some pretty fun bows and things for her. :-)

Hey... maybe you guys can keep your ears open for possible jobs up there in Washington? It is still an area that we are looking at! Maybe we could be neighbors again. :-)
