My brothers 30th bday party

Saturday night my SIL, Tiffany hosted what was supposed to be a surprise 30th bday party for my brother. She ended up telling him about it ahead of time because he had told her he didn't want to hang out with anyone this weekend since he had to work so much. He was still fine with having it and I'm glad because it was nice and perfect. She made fajitas and ordered hot sauce, guacamole, rice, and beans from On The Border. It was so delicious she even let me bring him left overs! : ) We left Carson with Lolly and Pops and just brought Olivia since she pretty much just sleeps anyway. She got lots of love by grandmas, grandpas, aunts, and uncles.

Thanks for having us over Tiff, we had a good time!

Meet my baby girl

This is my little Olivia Reese. She's beautiful and perfect. This picture is a bit old now, but one of my favorites. She still likes to eat, sleep, and poop. She does stay awake some but I'm pretty certain she's a little lazy. She loves for me to hold her. I'm thinking Olivia is a mommys girl. I love that she is because we all know Carson is all boy and all about daddy. Olivia has been a great baby. The only real difference between her and Carson at this age is Carson was a better sleeper. She's been sleeping through the night since she was 3 weeks, but I was able to feed him and just put him to bed and he'd fall asleep without a sound. Olivia on the other hand is not as easy. I feed her, put her to bed then after about 10 minutes she wants her paci and I have to hold her hand for a few minutes then she's finally out. Carson was also sleeping in his crib at 6 weeks. Olivia wants nothing to do with her crib. I'll lay her in while I'm cleaning her room and she's fine. If I put her in it while she's already sleeping she'll only stay there for about 30 minutes max. I don't mind it that much because she's my last little baby, but I am ready to have my room back to just me and Ryan again. Soon enough she'll get over it or she'll have to start crying it out. For the mean time it's no big deal!
P.S. Carson has been such a great big brother! He loves to help me. I think 3 years is such a perfect age difference!


Physique 57

I can't wait to try this new work out dvd series. I've done p90x up until I got pregnant, but was starting to get tired of it. I saw this one E! News the other night, it looks really hard, but the results have to be rewarding! Only 5 more months!!! In the mean time I'm doing some prenatal work out. I really hate working out pregnant, but I am so determined to not be a big fat cow during this pregnancy like my last. It was miserable, since this will most likely be my last pregnancy I'm trying to enjoy it. I'm just not one of those people who LOVES being pregnant or cute while pregnant. As much as I want to be I'm just not.


my new addiction

My latest addiction is... SEWING. You can't be having a baby girl and not know how to sew. There is just so much to make. I wanted to learn when I had Carson, but I wasn't as motivated because the stuff to make just wasn't as cute to me. There's so many things I want to learn with having a baby girl. Sewing is my number one, then it will be on to making bows, and headbands. Tonight I had my mom come over just teach me how to thread the needle & boppin, and make a straight stitch. After a while I got tired of that and wanted to move on to bigger and better things. Lets just say I wasn't ready for those bigger and better things to sew. It's alot more complicated than it looks. Hopefully by this time next week I will have accomplished baby leg warmers.

Aren't they just the cutest?

Baby girls nursery

This will be lil' Miss St. John's bedding. All I have to do is go find the fabric. I can't wait!!! Next part is naming her. I'm not one of those people who can wait until last minute to name their children. I had Carson's name picked out pretty much right after we found out what we were having. Girl names are a different story, everything is just so trendy.


Baby names

Although, I still don't know what I'm having for another 5 1/2 days it's driving me crazy that Ryan and I can't agree on a girl name. We had this problem when I was pregnant with Carson and it turned out to be a boy. Maybe this time will be the same, who knows?? I really love the name Taytum for a girl, we'll see if I win this battle or not. If it's a boy it's for sure Cash. I am so hooked on that name, it's a plus that Carson can say it, too!


Husband saves the day (night)

The first night I decide to get out in my car after this gross weather I get a flat tire on my way home. I've never had a flat tire or a wreck so it was kind of scary. My car started just pulling to the right and being real jerky I was coming up on a gas station in perfect timing. Luckily Carson was at home with Ryan. It could have been worse, I was worried I was riding the rim that could have been a expensive disaster and with these dr bills for the baby it's the last thing we need. Ryan came to my rescue with his trailer, loaded it up, brought it home, and aired it back up. The air compressor at the gas station wasn't any good it wouldn't air it even a little. I was worried I was going to be stuck at home AGAIN.. I would not be a happy person if that were the case. I am a on the go gal for sure!


3 year anniversary

Happy Anniversary to us! I can't believe it's already been three years since I married my best friend! I couldn't ask for a better husband or daddy to Carson and our future little one coming in July!! Due to this cold weather (I ABSOLUTELY HATE) we'll be rescheduling our date. Instead we'll be lazy and watch movies. Possibly cook dinner together, but I much rather order in so I don't have to clean the kitchen. : )
