Birthday Party

Gavin was so excited for his party yesterday- he was so cute! I couldn't believe the changes in him from just one year! He was so into his party this year- he loved that everybody came over, even showing them where to put the presents! Kurt cooked hot dogs on the BBQ and then we had Mickey Mouse cake. I spent all day on this darn cake and I think it turned out pretty cute:) Gavin thought it was great too! He LOVES Mickey! He ripped through all his presents, throwing aside the cards and clothes! He got the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, a bike, helmet, gear, cars, coloring pages, and of course his other friend Handy Manny and the tools! He even got Micky jammies that he almost wouldn't take off this morning. What a spoiled boy!!! Thanks to all the family for coming and helping us celebrate!! We love you all!

Happy Birthday!!

I just can't believe that Gavin is 2 years old today!!! Where did the time go? I have loved watching him learn and grow these past two years- he is such a great child! He went from a helpless little baby to a little independant boy!

Some of his favorite things to do are: watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (this includes singing "Hot Dog", LOVES to be outside, laughing, nursery, friends, water and he loves to mimic everything especially daddy!!!

I have been so blessed to be his mother! It was a little emotional for me today when it started to rain! Every important occasion that Kurt and I have had so far, there is rain! Our wedding day, honeymoon, and the day Gavin was born. We have been told that it is lucky- I totally agree! I just couldn't help get a little teary when I saw the rain:)

We love you Gavin!! Happy Birthday!

Park City

Here are some random pictures from our trip to Park City. Gavin loved the elevator- and had to be the one to push the button! He was so funny- it definitely took me back to when I was little- we all fought over who got to push the button!! So cute:)

I have so much to post- but I have not yet downloaded pictures. A couple weekends ago we went to Park City for a few days- I loved it!! The shopping was amazing! I spent way too much, but how can you pass up those deals? We went to the Olympic park and Kurt was able to do the zip lines and we went down the Alpine slide. We also spent a good amount of time watching people train for the Olympics. Some ski jump into the water trick:)

I also went to the doctor last week, things are looking good still. NO fluid anywhere, a great heart!! and she is growing so well! The only small concern is that I do not have a lot of amniotic fluid- so I have to have ultrasounds weekly to check that. If it continues to stay low or get lower- they would most likely deliver the baby at 37 weeks. That means it is very possible I could have this baby around the middle of September!!! I AM NOT READY!! The room is a mess- not painted. I only have about 12 outfits for her, so I suppose she will be wearing the same thing alot:) It will all come together I am sure:) I meet with the doctor that will deliver her on the 28th, and then we will know more about the delivery and what not. I am going to deliver at Utah Valley, and think that is a good choice- just incase we need the NICU or anything like that. So lots of stress for the next couple weeks:) YEAH- haven't had enough of that !!

I will post pics and things later! The computer room is being transformed into the baby room and is a HUGE mess right now:) Wish me luck:)

Baby Update

On Friday we went to Orem to do a Fetal Echo of the babies heart. I must admit I was nervous, it is common for Down Syndrome babies to have heart problems most common is a hole in the heart. The echo took about 25 minutes and then the doctor came in and said......everything is FINE!!!! We were so excited words cant even describe how we felt!! He said her heart is perfect for a baby her age and size- he said everything they normally see associated with DS, she shows no signs of it!! YEAH!! This was one of the last big things we needed to get passed before this little girl gets here! I am so thankful for all the miracles that we have recieved with this pregnancy- to go from where we started to here is just well a miracle!!! Thanks for all the prayers!!!
