"Daddy baseball"

Abby got a baseball glove from Michael and Lindsay for her birthday and she loves playing catch with Brandon. Whenever she sees him watching a baseball game she says, "Daddy baseball."

Abby Turns 2!

We celebrated Abby's birthday the Monday before this year since it was Pioneer Day and Brandon had the day off. We took her swimming at the Scera Pool in the afternoon and had the family over for pizza and cake in the evening. On her actual birthday we took her to Jamba Juice for breakfast because she loves their smoothies, then we got her a Happy Meal for lunch. We basically just stayed in the house and played with her toys most of the day because it's getting hard for me to chase after her when we go places. We Skyped with Jim and Cindy and Britney in the evening while she opened their gifts to her and finally we went to Pizza Factory where Ashley works for dessert!

Opening her presents

Abby isn't a big cake fan so I made her an ice cream cake, but she only ate the icing and left the rest of it on her plate...Next year I'll have to give her just ice cream.

She woke up so happy on her birthday and was like this most of the day...she must have known!

This is what she does when you say, "Big smiles Abby!"

There was a thunderstorm that hit us right as we were getting out of the car so we were soaking wet!

Pregnancy Update

Yesterday (the 28th) was my due date and still no sign of baby. I made a doctor appt. because I haven't been feeling well the last week (nausea is back) and since my blood pressure was a little high last week I thought it would be good just to go in and get it checked. My blood pressure was fine this time, but they said I have some protein in my urine, so basically I'm just supposed to take it easy the next few days and if I get anymore sick over the weekend the doctor told me to go into labor and delivery. My next appointment is Monday so hopefully something starts to happen by then!! I've hardly taken any pictures this pregnancy, but here are the few that I did take:
28 Weeks

32 Weeks

34 Weeks

39 Weeks-
This was for the Giants baby contest. The baby born closest to 9 months after the Giants won the World Series (Aug 1st at 7:54pm) wins some money and other prizes. We thought it would be fun to see how close we get!

Lots of Pictures- Mainly of Abby

Here's an update of pictures we've taken in the last couple of months:

We took Abby to feed the ducks at BYU, but she liked throwing rocks in the water with her dad even more.

Her new source of entertainment: Stacking cans in the kitchen. She's good at it too!

She likes to fill her crib up to take a nap:)

Always happy to play in the car

I made 36 freezer while I still had energy for when the baby comes. I don't know if I've recovered yet:)

We tried to get a cute picture for a Father's Day card but it didn't work out so well.

If we ever forget to close the bathroom door, this is where we will find Abby.

Making sure her baby gets fed.

Matching toes...the first time I painted her toenails!

She loves hats!

All ready for school!

She loves her binkies too, but this was a couple months ago and she is now officially off of them!!

4th of July

Brandon had the weekend of the 4th off of school and work so we decided to head down to St. George to meet up with some of the Hess cousins. We stayed with James and Jenna and Benji and Kendall stayed with TJ and Britney. They live next door to eachother so we were together pretty much the whole time. If I would have been thinking I would have taken a ton of pictures, but I didn't take any even though I had my camera :( The boys got together and played golf while us girls went shopping at the outlets in 113 degree weather. It wore me out, but was a lot of fun. The rest of the time we basically just hung out, ate good food (Neilsen's Frozen Custard...Yum), and went swimming. We came home on Monday the 4th and did a few fireworks with Abby. She was a little afraid of them, but as long as we were holding her she liked to watch!
