When is the baby coming game?

Well, I am at 35 weeks and a couple days. I thought it would be fun to play a game out of when the baby will come. I got this idea from a friend who did this when she had a baby. Four prizes will be awarded for the person who gets closest to the right date, the right weight, the length of labor and what time I went into labor.

Here is some information to help you make the best guess:

Abby was born at 36 weeks 1 day, 7 lbs. 3 oz, I went into labor at 3 a.m., and labor lasted 8 hours. This baby is due August 14th.

To enter the contest, just leave a comment, or send me a message on Facebook, or email me. Anyone who wants may apply. The prizes will be awarded to the person who comes closest to the actual stats, but the prize will be way better if you get the stats spot on! One guess per person. I will announce the winner after the baby is born! Good luck!

Baby Bump Progression

18 weeks

20 weeks

25 weeks

29 weeks

32 weeks


This is the last ultrasound we had. I was about 28 weeks pregnant here. My Dr's office had just hired an ultrasound technician, so we were able to do it sooner than if the Dr had done it. I was told that she was measuring about a week big, but that it was ok. She said by the measurements, the baby was about 3 lbs, and that she was a girl!


Alright, so I haven't posted in FOREVER on this blog! I know, I've been a major slacker! Things have just been a little crazy around here. I've been trying to make and sell soldered necklaces on Etsy. It's been a big process, and I go back and forth on it. I get discouraged a lot about it, but I keep telling myself I need more exposure and everything. I need to be patient about it and eventually it will work. I just am not the most patient person when it comes to things like this! I'm also just very pregnant and trying to stay out of the heat and everything. This pregnancy has been different from the last, and I thought I was having a boy for awhile. But no, another girl! Which I'm totally fine with! It means less money to spend on stuff since we already have the girl stuff. I still need to get a double stroller, though. Trying to figure out which ones are good and can hold a lot of weight. The one I was looking at only holds 40 pounds total, so it won't work.

Josh is working full time. He works 2-3 days a week, 16 hour long shifts. He likes his job, but it's hard at times with the long hours. He is planning on going back to school in the fall to SUU and getting his Bachelor's in Criminal Justice.

Abby is growing up so fast! She is talking more and more every day. She loves Blues Clues and just about anything that has singing in it (which Josh pretty much hates). She loves nursery! The first time I left her in there she tried to shut the door on my face. It was a little heartbreaking for me, but I'm glad she likes it so much. I get told every Sunday how good she is in there. She loves to share with Mama and Dada. If she has something to eat, she wants us to have one as well. She used to be terrified of my sister's little dog, but then one day she wanted to get in the pen with her and play. Now she loves her and wants her to chase after her and lick her.

I'll post more later with pictures and things. :)

Baby #2

I was able to have an ultrasound at 10 weeks. Here are the scanned pics. They aren't great scans, but they'll do for now. :)

Abby's 1st Birthday!

I know, these are really late! Abby is actually almost 18 months now, but I still wanted to share some of the pics from her birthday.

This is the first cake I ever decorated.

She wasn't sure what to do at first.

She mainly ate the frosting. We cut into the cake so she would at least eat some of it.

The Saturday after her birthday, we had another small party for her. We had cupcakes and then went to the water park.

She thought the singing was funny
She started laughing when we tried to show her how to blow out the candle.

Some Updates

So, I realize that I haven't been a very good blogger lately! Life has been a little crazy for quite awhile. Since I posted last, Abby has turned 1 (I'll post pics later), I am now a stay-at-home mom, Josh has graduated with his Associates from Dixie and is planning on going to SUU either in the summer or the fall. Oh, and I'm pregnant! I am officially out of the first trimester! I am 13 weeks now. This pregnancy has been a little different. I felt that the morning sickness was a lot worse, but last time I was working and kept telling myself I didn't have time to be sick. So, maybe it was similar and I just didn't notice? Who knows. I'm still really tired, though. Don't know if that will ever go away! I got an ultrasound at 10 weeks (will post those later as well), and every thing is going well!

I have also started a craft blog. http://carriscraftingcorner.blogspot.com if you'd like to check it out!

I will try to keep up with the blogging better!
