Jillian turns 2!!

Our little Jillie is growing up so fast.
Here is a list of things that fascinate her lately:
yo gabba gabba
little people by Fisher Price
Caillou (pbs)
Max and all doggies
going to the zoo, discovery musuem, or aquarium
anything that has to do with Christmas; especially lights and santa
balls- she loves to play catch but instead of catching she bumps it like volleyball:)
Goodnight Gorrilla book
But not the Hippopotomus book
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
baby Kiera
Jingle Bells
Okay, this is just to name a few. She is curious about everything!
We love our smiley sweet sunshine! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JILLIE!

Halloween 2010

We had a great time this Halloween. Jillian was really getting into the whole thing.

I had to put this one on here, my friends friend( I don't really know her) had her son be Nacho Libre!!
Jillian fit into my snow white dress that my dad bought me back when I was 3 years old. I love that my mom held on to it. It fit her perfectly.

Her friend Wyatt went as a golfer. I love that he is a couple months older than her and she is way taller. She talks about Wyatt all the time its pretty cute.

updates on Jillian

Well, rest assured, she is doing a little better. Aaron came home and said it was an absolute waste of time seeing the doctor last night. She didn't know what to do. She even said she had to go see other people. She basically asked the same questions the advise nurse asked us on the phone and that was it. I wish the advise nurse didn't tell us to bring her in. She woke up crying about 6 more times last night but fortunately went back to sleep. She woke up at around 10:30, so she got alot of sleep. She is starting to eat and run around so I know she will be back to normal soon!! Thanks for your prayers.

Flu Shot gone bad

Here it is 1:45 am and I am worried sick. Aaron took Jillie to the emergency room tonight about an hour ago because she has had a fever for two days now because of the flu shot. This is the second time she has had the flu shot and last year no side effects but this year has been rough on her. About 6 hours after she got the shot she started to run a fever of 102.7. That night she woke up screaming at 1 and wouldn't go back to sleep until 5 am then woke up at 8:30 am and has been a walking zombie ever since. She won't sleep for more than 10 minutes at a time then she wakes herself up by trembling and being scared. She has been acting very delirious. We have been giving her childrens advil and tylenol but it doesn't seem to bring the fever down very much. Tonight I was laying with her in bed and she woke up suddenly and jumped screaming in terror and didn't recognize me. It took Aaron and I a while to calm her down. That is when we called the doctor for the second time today. They told us to bring her in. I keep trying to tell myself that she will be okay, she just needs to sleep. I hope that when they get home her fever will be gone and she will go right to sleep. I pray that she is resting right now. It is so hard for me to see her this way because she is usually so lively and curious about everything and so happy. She is not herself at all today.
I've decided I won't be giving my kids flu shots anymore.

Just got a text saying they are coming home. They have no answers but are making an appointment for her to see the doctor tomorrow.

Pray that she will get better!

Just Can't get enough...

Baby Kiera is now 9 days old today. We have been having so much fun with her. She's such a good baby. I feel like I have it easy. She's a good sleeper and eater.
Here's a recap of my Labor:
They started to induce me at 11:30am wed. August 25th and we waited and waited and kept waiting. That night around midnight I was feeling alot of Back Labor (which means feeling alot of pain in your back) so they gave me the epidoral around 12:30 am. Then the potossum. We got a few hours of sleep in that night and by 4:00am I was only dialated to a 4 and then they checked me again at I think 10 am and I was still dialated to a 4 or 5! I was getting so discouraged at this point. Aaron actually had a dentist appointment at 9:30 am. Your probably thinking, bad timing. Yeah, it was but unfortunately, he was having alot of pain and needed a root canal done and that was the only opening so since I was only dilated to a 4-5, we thought it would be okay for him to be gone for a couple of hours. Well, after they checked me at 10 then the doctor decided to break my water to get things moving. Well, that infact is what happened. At 11:00 am I called the nurse in to tell her that I think she should check me again and sure enough I was at a 10 and I was feeling like I needed to push. By this time it was around 11:30am and Aaron wasn't there yet! I called him and told him to hurry up and luckily he was in the hospital lobby. Aaron was only there for about 15 minutes by the time Kiera came out. I was so glad he made it. In 5 pushes she was out at 11:58 am. Weighing 8 pounds 11 ounces, 21 inches long.

Max and Jillie can't get enough of her, its pretty cute.

Thank you mom for coming for a week to help me. I couldn't of done it without her.

Our little family is growing..

I love these girls

My Great Grandma Marie

My dad sent me this picture today with my great grandma holding the American Flag sitting on top of the truck. This was a Victory parade celebrating the end of World War I on November 11, 1918 in downtown Cheyenne, Wyoming. I was named after her. I remember as a little girl visiting her a few times. I am glad I got the chance to meet her. I remember her smiling all the time.

Giraffe Frame

I finally finished a project that I have been wanting to do for so long. I found this giraffe frame at the Cancer Society thrift store awhile back and I thought it had so much potential to be cute. I should have taken a before picture, I forgot. It was just this boring laminate wood. I think it was made in the 70's. I had this idea to paper mache it with cool paper so this is how it turned out! I have alot of fancy paper that I hardly ever use because I used to do book binding but I haven't done that in a long time so I put this pink paper with white embossed Henna drawings on it. Atleast that is what it reminds me of. I will be puting pictures of Jill and the new baby inside, I can't wait to hang it in their room!

JIllie's Adventures

Aaron and I took Jill to the Gilroy Gardens on Memorial Day. It was such a fun day. There were so many rides she could go on. Here she is on a swan paddle boat with daddy...
Here she is on a worm ride eating an apple...

We spent alot of time here where she could play in the water. She loved it...

This is her at the San Francisco Zoo at the petting zoo area. She loved feeding and petting the goats...

Every statue they had she wanted to sit on, she loved this bear...

We were the only ones practically on this merry-go-round...

We went up to Sacramento a couple of weekends ago for our friends, Dell and Janets baby shower. They are having a girl 3 weeks before us! They recently moved to Houston and we want them back so bad. (I think I've decided that I'm too old to wear a tiger shirt,b ut its comfy being prego so I don't care)...

At the baby shower they had these balloons and Jillie kept running around with them...

She loves balloons and...

pushing strollers. Another girl had brought her stroller to the park and all she wanted to do was push it around.

We just got back from visiting Cheryl and Ryan and the kiddies in Utah!! It was so fun even though it progressively got colder and colder. Some of the days were in the 50's and rainy, crazy I know! This was the first day we were there, so it wasn't as cold. Jill loved going on LIvies 4-wheeler...

We went up to Logan one day. I love Old Main!

Eating popcicles= Happy kids!

Jillie with her first popcicle. She did pretty good I must say...

Last Saturday, Tess had her dance recital. She was in 7 dances which included: Tap, Jazz, Ballet and Toe Ballet. Tess is amazing. It was so fun to watch her. She is so graceful and so elegant when she dances. I hope she keeps dancing for the rest of her life. She is blessed with this talent.

Here's one of the cold days. Look how bundled up they are and it is June!!

Tess and Tayli brought these cuties out into the living room with their hair done in piggies and a headband. They were so cute and fun to watch together. We miss you guys already!

Sweet Old Man at the Bakery

This morning I got to work early, so I walked over to a local bakery to get a cinnamon roll. As I was waiting for them to heat it up, this sweet old man with a cane got up from where he was sitting and came right over to me and tapped me on the shoulder and said, " Excuse me, when are you expecting a baby?" I replied the beginning of Septemeber. He then put his hand on my shoulder and with tears in his eyes, he muffeled, " Do you know what your having?" I told him a girl with a grin on my face. He then replied, "Awe, I have 4 girls!" He then brushed my cheek still with tears in his eyes. He was such a sweet old man. I wanted to give him a hug but I thought that might of been weird. That made my day!

The Simple Things in Life

One of Jillie's favorite things to do is...
get herself up onto our chair by...

Using a decorative suitcase I have underneth it.

Then she claps while standing on the suitcase because she is so proud of herself. This is just one reason why I love being a mom and just one reason why I love her so much.

80 degrees in March

Yesterday we had such a fun day at Grandma and grandpas house. I couldn't believe it was that hot. All I could think about was how am I going to get through summer being pregnant, when I was already complaining about the heat in March! We pulled the pool out of the garage and put some water in it for Jill. She had so much fun going in and out of the pool. Her other favorite part about being outside was going up and down the steps in their backyard and just running around barefoot in her swimsuit.
