Halloween Fun

Our first Halloween as a little family :) We tried to paint Kenzie's face so she could be a kitty she didn't quite like it and so we settled for a ghost shirt with a cute little kitty tail...lol
The shop has stayed busy and Tim and I are finally starting to feel like we have things under control. God has been so good to us!

October has been such a busy month...between Jarbidge, Missouri and work I'm not sure how the three of us have kept our sanity.
We are finally the proud owners of our own shop and Tim has done an amazing job! Mckenzie and I go to work with daddy now, she is our little mascot. All the customers love her! He is such a hard worker and loving husband and father, I'm so incredibly lucky!
McKenzie is doing great, she has slept through the night a few times which makes me very happy. She smiles and talks to you and loves attention. All in all she is a great baby.
We had our very first date night and Mckenzie stayed with Grandma for a few hours so Tim and I could go to dinner, we missed her terribly, but is was so nice for us to just sit and enjoy each others company :) I can't wait to see whats in store for us in November!

1st month

I don't think 1 month has ever gone by so fast in my entire life! It has been so amazing for us to have her here, we always say that we don't know what we did before she came. She had a few routine Dr. visits and she is a very healthy little girl. Tim and I are doing great as well, a few sleepless nights but it has all been worth it. Here are a few pics, enjoy!

She is always so happy in the morning :)

Meeting little Ryden Etchart. So cute !

I love this picture!

Im feeling pretty good, ready to meet my girl! Tim say's she can't come until after this weekend because he wants to go fishing :) I told him I'll do my best to keep her in, but no promises!

Woodcutting. I thought this would put me into labor for sure, but no such luck.

36 WKS

Today is a special day.. 1 because it's Tim's b-day and 2 we are @ an important week. 36! At this point if the baby came early our hospital would deliver me here instead of life flighting me to Boise...what a relief!! McKenzie's (or baby Mac as Tim calls her) room is all done and ready for her, all I have left to do is a huge pile of baby clothes laundry. I've been putting it off for a few weeks and Monday I started one load and our dryer broke! so now we are waiting for the part to arrive...lol

Here is a 36 wk update and a few pictures.
*Your baby measures about 20.7 inches from head to toe and weighs about 6 pounds. The baby may drop lower in your abdomen, usually assuming the head-down position. You're in the home stretch; after this week, you'll be seeing your doctor weekly. You may be alternating between feeling exhausted and having extra bursts of energy. Along with backache and pelvic pain.*

32 Weeks and still counting!

My nephews first birthday was this week, it was so cute he didn't want to put his hands in the cake so my brother did it for him and it made him cry...lol I figure that our little girl is probably going to be the dirty one :)
Tim has been trying to get a bear rug for Mckenzie...at least that is the reason he tells me he has to go bear hunting every night! He ended up not getting one but had so much fun doing it :)
Tonight we start our birthing classes, and I just finished painting the room...everything is coming along so quickly it's hard to believe it's almost time.
Here is a quick update on what is going on at 32 weeks.

By now, your baby weighs 3.75 pounds (pick up a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You're gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. In fact, she'll gain a third to half of her birth weight during the next 7 weeks as she fattens up for survival outside the womb.

Memorial Wknd in Jarbidge

Tim and I were able to go to Jarbidge and spend a nice relaxing 3-day wknd there! We tried to go on a few 4-wheeler rides but were stopped by some SNOW!!! Other than that the wknd was a blast. Now we are looking forward to coming to Fallon to see everyone in a few weeks..yay!
The pregnancy is going great! The baby is moving a ton and Tim loves watching my belly roll all over the place, it's pretty entertaining for us :)
We are getting so excited and anxious for August to get here. We start our birthing classes in a few weeks, I just can't believe that is already here!

12 weeks Left!!!! oh my

Here is a quick update for 28 weeks...only 12 more to go! yay!!!
Your baby measures about 10 inches from crown to rump, or a total length of about 15.75 inches from head to toe, and weighs about 2.4 pounds. She is able to dream when sleeping and her eyelids open and close. Her lungs are almost fully developed, so there's a good chance that baby would survive if born prematurely. Your uterus extends well above your navel. As baby gets bigger and stronger this month, you may experience leg cramps and mild swelling of ankles and feet, difficulty sleeping, shortness of breath, lower abdominal aches, clumsiness or scattered Braxton Hicks contractions (hardening and relaxing of the uterus). These contractions are normal but if they start showing a pattern, call your health care provider. You may also be urinating more frequently as the uterus continues to push on your bladder.

24 week update

I cant believe that there is only about 15 weeks left until my due date. Time is going by so fast, yet so slow :) Tim and I are getting very anxious to meet the little girl. She has been moving a ton and so far the thing that gets her moving most is..American Idol and when I put my headphones on my belly she goes crazy I think we have a dancer/singer on our hands. Here is what WebMD says is going on in the 24th week of pregnancy.
You're 24 Weeks Pregnant. Your baby measures around 8.4 inches from crown to rump and weighs about 1.2 pounds. He is starting to produce white blood cells, an important component of blood that is responsible for combating disease and infection, and may respond to your touch or sounds. Your uterus is about 1.5 to 2 inches above your navel. Expect to gain about a pound per week this month. Tests for detecting gestational diabetes are given between now and 28 weeks.
Also Tim went turkey hunting so here are some pic's of his kills :) yum, fresh turkey meat!

21 weeks and counting down

Its a girl!!! yay. We are super excited to be having a girl...I thought it would be a boy for sure since Tim was so set on having a boy first. But he is so happy and loves the idea of being able to buy a new gun to scare off the boys with :) The doctor said everything looks healthy and she is developing great, we saw a front view of the face and it looks like she has some chubby cheeks already! Here are some pictures for everyone, Tim said that he wanted to measure my stomach, so the measurment taken is from my belly button all the way around...then I caught him measuring his stomach! I thought it was pretty cute.

Fishin' Trip

So saturday we took the boat out with our good friends Chris & Jen and we went fishing. We had such a great time, it was a little windy but it was also about 65 degrees so no one was complaining. We ended up catching 14 crappie which was great, now we get to have a fish fry :) 1 more week till the big day!
