It's a girl!

Looks like we're having a girl according to the ultrasound we had today. We found out I'm two weeks earlier than we thought so I'll have to go in for another ultrasound in a couple weeks. The ultrasound tech said she thought it was a girl and said there were signs showing that. Nick and I both thought it was a girl based on comparing Josiah's ultrasounds which was so obvious.
In two weeks we will know more and will get more pictures. Although they never really tell you it's definitely a boy or girl. Even on Josiah's they said, "It's PROBABLY a boy." Anyway, we are excited and will let you know what happens in a couple weeks....who knows it could be a boy.

Happy Anniversary Nicholas

On May 21st Nick and I celebrated our four year wedding anniversary. Seems like it has gone by fast especially because Josiah's two and half.
It's always fun to remember back to the wedding day and what you were doing at each point of the day. I remembered waking up thinking, "this is when I'd be getting my hair done." And at one o'clock is when we said "I do."
We always go somewhere for our anniversary. This year we went to Seattle for a night and went to a mariner's game. It was a lot of fun and Nick had some hotel points from his travels so we got to stay in a nice place with a view of the water in downtown Seattle.
Thanks Nick for four great years. You are a wonderful husband and I'm so thankful God brought us together. I love you and am so glad I married my best friend.

Mother's Day!

This mother's day was especially fun. I think because last year Josiah couldn't really say "Mother's Day." This year he ran up to me with a card that he and daddy had made for me. He was saying, "Happy Mother's Day" over and over again. It was really sweet!
Nick and Josiah took me out to breakfast and then we went for a two hour walk in the park. Josiah especially loved throwing rocks in the water. It was such a nice day outside. I wish I would've taken my camera. Nick and Josiah were both wearing hats and it was so cute when they were throwing time.
Our small group meets on Sunday nights and all the husbands sent their wives to get manicures and pedicures while they babysat the boys (maybe we'll add a baby girl to this group). That was a great treat for us!! Thanks Nick for the nail treatments and for the maternity clothes you bought me, much needed as I'm starting to pop out. You're the greatest husband!
Thanks to Josiah for the sweet card and for being the greatest son. I'm so glad to be your mother and so thankful God put you in my life!!

Weekend in Salem

This last weekend was my Cousin's college graduation and my Grandma's 78th birthday. Josiah had a great time seeing everyone. We stayed at Aunt Ninny's house which was a lot of fun. Every morning Josiah would wake up calling for Ninny-pretty cute! I wish I would've got a picture of Josiah with Ninny, but I didn't so I'll have to do it next time.
On Thursday we took Josiah to the riverfront carousel which I thought he'd love. He went on it with Nick when he was little and he didn't mind it then. He picked out his horse and sat on it, but it was taking forever for the carousel to start and so he was getting a little frustrated. Then the man running the carousel said we weren't on a horse that went up and down so we switched horses and after that he started crying and we had to sit in the covered wagon. We did get a picture of us on the first horse he picked. After the ride was over Josiah was out of there super fast. We went to the playground and he played for quite awhile, making a lot of friends as usual. It was his very last time down the slide and a bee was on his hand. I was about to hit the bee away and then Josiah closed his fist and the bee stung him. My mom quickly pulled the stinger out and killed the bee! That stupid bee, I was so angry! Josiah recovered well and didn't have much of a reaction to the sting. He showed everyone his bee sting and would tell them, "Bad bug!"
Friday we were able to head towards Woodburn to a flower farm. Every year we get my Grandma a hanging basket for her birthday. There were many animals and Josiah got to feed some goats and sit on a couple tractors. They had an International Harvester Tractor which my Grandpa collects so we had to get a picture of Josiah on the IH tractor (that one is for you Grandpa!).
Unfortunately cousin Adam was not feeling well so the boys weren't able to play together. Josiah hasn't seen Adam since September. Hopefully we will be able to get them together soon. Hope your feeling better Adam!
Saturday we celebrated Carissa's graduation and my Grandma's birthday. Josiah got to help Great Grandma blow out the candles. Josiah had a great time with Grandma, he would follow her all around the house. It was pretty cute.
We had a great weekend. Josiah is still talking about everything he did. Yesterday at Starbucks he went around to random people showing them his bee sting, it was pretty funny. He doesn't have a shy bone in his body.
Thanks Ninny for housing us and playing with Josiah-he loved seeing you. It was great to see everyone, hopefully we will make it back soon.
