A touching video

My New Life

I just watched this inspirational and moving video. What an example of faith and courage. I hope that when my trials come I will be able to see them as they truly are, opportunities to grow closer to my Heavenly Father and further learn my divine worth and potential. As I have been thinking a lot about having another baby I realize how truly blessed I am to be able to be a mother and a woman. This past mother's day was so wonderful, even though Adam was sick and things didn't work out how I had planned. I was able to go to church and to feel the spirit and be grateful for the opportunity I have to be a mother and woman. We have so much potential and divine worth if we just keep close to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. The world will try to distract us and make us question who we are, but as we draw closer to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ we realize the truth, which is that we are children of a Heavenly Father, which makes us divine. When I look at Collin and Adam and see all the opportunities I have to try to make them see their divine potential, I realize how lucky I am. God knows us and knows what we need, if we can just have the faith and courage to press forward, steadfast and immovable.

So one of Collin's favorite games is to run down the hall and around the kitchen and back down the hall and back around the kitchen and... you get the point. Most the time he want's one of us to follow him, usually Dad of course, but now Toby likes to join in the fun too and he makes an okay substitute. Here's an example, and sorry for the blurry video. It's something with reducing the video size so it's small enough to fit in the blog. I'll have to work on it.

Soon to be 4

I just had to write quick and say that our little trio will soon be a foursome. I can't wait! I am getting so excited for our little one to come. I am already a 3 and 50% effaced. So we'll see what happens. I was like that with Collin and he still came 4 days late, so who knows. I just can't wait for her to come. Oh and we finally came up with a name for good, (as long as it's a girl). We're going to name our little sweetie Marissa! Isn't that so cute. We love it. It has taken months and months, hours and hours, and Adam shooting down several of my ideas to finally come up with a final name, but we are set on Marissa. Marissa Brandt, just seems to fit. Our ward threw me a baby shower last month and I received so many adorable outfits I just can't believe I'll have a little girl to put in them! Yay! Can't wait to announce her arrival, stay tuned. It could be any day now... :)

Our Little Athlete

Collin has loved balls as soon as he could hold one and now he is finding taller and taller things that he can jump off of. So here is a little video of him throwing, catching, jumping, talking, and just being Collin.
