Still No Baby!

Just in case all of you are wondering.... No we have not had our baby yet. Steven seems to think that Jace is just too comfortable in my tummy and doesn't want to leave. If only I was as comfortable as he is then we wouldn't have such a big problem. In case any of you were keeping track, my due date has come and gone and still no baby.

The worst part of it all is not even having a glimmer of hope. Our doctor is really retarded! She won't even check me to see if I am dilated, or if things are progressing at all. At the last visit on Wednesday we asked her if she would strip my membranes. I've heard from many sources that the procedure can help speed things along. Her response to our request was "Oh no you don't want me to do that. It's not very pleasant" Ok, Lady... if I didn't want you to do that then why did I just ask you to? Seriously I know it isn't the most fun thing in the world but anything is better than sitting her being miserable without any hope of an ending.

Being induced isn't an option either. The hospital has a very "off hands approach" and they won't induce until 42 weeks. That means I could be pregnant for 2 weeks longer than everyone else. I told my doctor that having large children ran in my family and that I was worried my baby would get too big and I wouldn't be able to get him out and I'll end up having to have a c-section. I told her that my brother Dallas was a hefty 11lbs 12oz after being only 6 days late and she didn't even believe me! She said that my mother must have had gestational diabetes because, and I quote "babies just don't get that big on their own." Well they do in my family lady!!!

I am seriously frustrated and uncomfortable at this point so we are asking everyone to pray for us that we will have this baby sooner rather than later.

Kate and I had the most fun this weekend taking absolutely adorable pictures of my huge baby belly. Kate is such a good photographer I'm sure me being so dang good looking pregnant helped too ;) But they turned out so adorable I have to show everyone!

Steven... Super Man!

This weekend we went to the ostrich festival. It was sort of a spur of the moment thing though. It was a double date actually with our friend Shane, the pretty blond, that went not as planned at all. We started the evening planning on going to the Piano Bar after dinner down on mill. But as Shayne and her date were driving down the south 202 they saw the festival and decided they wanted to go there instead. So we ended up eating near there and then going to the festival.

This is where Steven became my super man! His powerful arms took over and smashed beer bottles like they were glass...wait I guess they are glass. Anyway, he won at beer bust by smashing two beer bottles with a baseball. He won me and Jace a big pooch we named Bear.

Getting Ready to Strike em out!

Happy Baptism Day

So this saturday my adorable little sister and step-brother were baptized. I know it's funny that I still have siblings that young. It was a great day. They are both so cute and looked so ready to make such a huge commitment. It was actually quite the event there were so many people there. I guess now days they do Stake baptisms where they get all the 8yr olds in the stake at the same time. You don't get your own any more like they did it back in my day. (that's a nice story grandma) So there were I think 5 or 6 kids there getting baptized. There were 3 from my Mom's ward our two and another little girl so we got to go last. My stepdad Larry baptized and confirmed them both. What a great experience

After the baptism we had a super fun family BBQ at the park! We had all kinds of food and super cute kids running around. It was the highlight of the day. We got to sit and talk and joke and laugh and eat (my favorite) Oh and I got some super cute pictures to top it all off.

Just trying to get a drink man!

Steven is such a good uncle to annie
