Today Gavin and I went and got haircuts- he is so good when he gets his hair cut. After Moni put the color on my hair we cut Gavins and then it was time for me to go under the dryer. Well Gavin noticed there were two and that meant he needed one too. He was so dang cute! She put him up in the chair and turned the dryer on and he sat there and smiled! He was rather entertained by the air coming out! What a funny kid!! I just love him!

Miracles happen!!!

Well- this might get corney, but hey that is me!!

The past 5 months have been the most difficult crazy months thus far of my life! I have been happy, sad, scared, worried, strengthened and uplifted and many more things! I have always believed in God and the power of prayer and had faith, but my testimony of these things have been imensley strengthened throughout this pregnancy. I have felt God's hand in my life and in the life of this little baby. I am blessed and thankful for everything that has happened- good or bad- it has brought us closer as a family and as husband and wife!

So here is the news- that was the corney part!

We met with the doctor yesterday ( a new doctor in the same hospital) and she said things look really good. There is no fluid on the baby! The ventricles that were filling with fluid and possibly going to cause another condition are looking really good. They are not even a concern right now! Jenna is the toughest little cookie ever! She weighs about 1.5 pounds and is growing great- she is right on schedule! They did say that I dont have a lot of amniotic fluid, but that is not a big concern right now. The doctor actually said that if she didn't know the history on the baby she would have thought she was looking at a normal healthy baby!! WOW! I have needed to hear that!

So needless to say- prayer does work! Thanks to all of you who have prayed for our family and for this precious little girl! We love and appreciate all of you!

Kurt and I started dating our Junior year of Highschool and have been together ever since, we have actually been together for 9 years!! Holy crap! I just love him so much! We have been through alot in the past 4 years- I am greatful that I have someone like him to go through all our trials and joys with! We have been so blessed with our son Gavin- we just love him. He has been such a joy in our lives! Thanks for putting up with me- I know it is hard sometimes! I love you KURT!!!

Most of you will think that this post is crazy, however I LOVE my dog! Today Roy is 4 years old! I want to tell him Happy Birthday! Kurt and I got Roy when he was 3 months old, and I thought that I was going to go crazy trying to train him and get him to sleep at night. Roy was born the day before we got married so we knew we needed to buy him, it was a sign:) I have loved having Roy in our home, we treat him like a child! In fact I refer to him as my first son, Gavin is the second child:) Roy and Gavin get along great and because of that I think Gavin has learned to love other dogs and animals and not be afraid of them! When I read the book Marley and ME I said to Kurt that I could have written that book! It seemed like everything that happened to them happened to us- and the love of a sweet animal helps you through a lot of tough times! When Kurt worked out of town I was so glad we had Roy! He is my little companion! Dogs really are a woMANS best friend:) Happy Birthday Roy!!

Missing Camera

Well I haven't posted in a while because I can not find my camera and I have some cute pictures that I wanted to post!! But it doesn't look like the camera is just hiding this time- I really think it might be gone for good! Dang it!

Lets see- for Memorial Day we went to Thanksgiving Point and went to the petting zoo. Gavin loved it! He loves animals so much and was so excited to see them up close. He loved the pony ride the most! He smiled and laughed the whole time! It was really cute! We had a really good day and look forward to it every year! Thanks Grandma Barton!

Around the house- we are finally building a fence!!! I am so excited! We just got another puppy and I told Kurt I will go crazy with two kids and two dogs and no fence!! So we started last Saturday and it is coming along rather well! I can't wait to be able to let the dogs just run in the yard and for Gavin to have a fun place to play! I will miss my easy access to Maradees yard, but we plan on having many "Home Improvement" type conversations! Me being the smart Mr. Wilson and her being the goofy neighbor Tim!!!!

I dont really have much baby news- things are still the same as far as I know. We go to the Doctor on the 17th and we will see how things are. We will be able to do another ultrasound and see our sweet baby!! I will make sure to update after we go.

Gavin and I have enjoyed being outside and playing and also going to school lunch! It is amazing that he will eat everything they feed him there, but nothing that I feed him at home!! Crazy kid!

Well if the camera mysteriously appears I will post some pics!!
