Today the girls and I went up to visit grandma and grandpa lynn. Abbey loves going up to visit. She picked eggs from the chickens. We gathered apricots now I am going to be very busy.
Thanks for all the goodies!
Wow, where has the time gone? My baby is almost 3 months old. She is a super good baby. She is 11 lbs. 23.5 in. And healthy.
Abbey is a good sister. She loves baby buckey so much.
Well it is finally over! For several months Abbey has has several swollen lymph nodes in her neck. We watched them for a couple months, then the pediatrician sent us to an ENT downtown.
Dr.child put her on an antibiotic and had us come back in 3 weeks.
When 3 weeks were up, he nodes were larger and there were more on other side of her neck. Well he scheduled surgery on the 21st of May.
On the 20th we toured the hospital. It was wonderful. She loved it. Explained what was going to happen and toured each area of the hospital.
On Friday morning she was a trooper, she dressed in her tutu and went to the hospital that way. Super excited until they made her change into boy pjs. Okay they were just blue, was happy other than that. Surgery was fast. She took over an hour to wake up in recovery. I guess shewa super tired.
She got her slurpee when she woke up and was ready to go.
Dr said everything went well. We would get result the following week.
Here are some pictures. I am so glad we have grandparents that love our kids! Thanks to grandma cindy ,grandpa mont and uncle grant for drivingup to show her they love her. Grandma judy for babysitting and being her to take care of baby brooklynn during the surgery.
We love you guys !.
Results came back good asnd clean. It is just a pesky lymph node the did not shrink after being enlarged.
Thank you heavenly father for the love and support. The prayers that were answered and testimonies strengthened .
Well here we are in June. Summer is here and I am enjoying the time I get to spend with the girls. I have been off work for one week now.
For Memorial Day we headed south to the WOOD Ranch. The cattle drive was Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Abbey was dying to ride her horse. Well it is actually grandpa Monts horse. She is convinced it is hers. She rode for several hours on Duke! I rode all day saturday . Tyler put 80 miles on the 4 wheeler. he had a great time exploring.
We camped 3 nights and the girls did great. Brooklynn is a trooper. We have really enjoyed having her in our family. She is a treat.
Abbey played with cousins, drove 4 wheelers, smashed pennies, rode horses and went swimming in the hot tub, she thought that life was grand. She wants to be a cowgirl! I think she is a sweetheart who loves to do anything and everything she puts her mind too.
We went to Rexburg this past weekend. Tyler went camping with the boys and his dad for father and sons camp out. I was able to see a few friends. We ate at Big Juds ! Tyler was thrilled. The girls and I spent Friday night with grandma and enjoying the quiet house.
We hung out and had a good time. We are working on getting the rexburg house ready to be sold. Things are falling into place. Now the decision is where are we going to live? Am I going to work part-time? What are we to do next?
Well things are winding down and I am ready for this little girl to join our family. Abbey is always thinking of her little sister. Mom when is she coming? Mom I want to hold my baby! Mom please tell me and dad when she comes so we can hide. ( she thinks that baby Brooklynn is going to explode out of my stomach and get her dirty.) I sure hope that is not how it works. Ha Ha.
Well I am still working. Parent/Teacher confereces were the first week in March, Phew I am glad I got that out of the way. I am really looking forward to having sometime off, and to recover. I feel like the pregnancy as lasted along time. I know Tyler is ready also. We are all really looking forward to holding this little princess.
Well I will post some pregnant pictures soon.
Happy New Year! We have had a great start to the New Year 2010 will definately be a great year. In 2 months Tyler turns 28! in 3 months we will have a new little sweetheart join our family. Abbey is so excited to be a BIG SISTER! In June I will have my 10 year class reunion. July Tyler will have his. Man, This decade went by so fast. I am hoping the next goes a little slower.
He is a few family pictures to start at new Decade. Here is to a wonderful start of the 2010 year.
Christmas Day stated around 8:30 A.M. Abbey woke up and said ” it is my birthday!” ” oh I wonder if Santa made it” well she ran downstairs and said he did he did. I got my Handy Manny workshop. Well it was wrapped, she just saw a large wrapped box and thought that is was it. She was so fun this year. We celebrated Christmas then we had Breakfast and relaxed for a bit. Then we went to Aunt Sue’s for Dinner and to Celebrate Abbey’s Birthday. It was so fun. She is the sweetest little girl ever.
Well today started early! Abbey got a pink cast and wanted it off before we even left the doctor’s office. She will have it on until January 15th. 3weeks is not terrible at all. I am really glad that she has the hard cast on. She was so rough with all the uncles today. She had everyone sign her cast today. Her arm is so little that is is almost full. She is so sweet.
Next we came home and cleaned for Grandpa Ed to fly in from Minnesota. She was so excited to see him. It was really great to see him. We are excited to have him here for a week.
We did some last minute shopping and cleaning.
Abbey is so excited to turn 4 . This makes me sad, to think that my little girl is growing up so fast.
We headed to Aunt Sue’s house for dinner and to hang out. it was an enjoyable night. Abbey tracked Santa. She went to bed as soon as Santa got to Oklahoma. When her friend Savannah and Mackenzie got Santa at their house. (they are her cousins)
She laid out milk (Chocolate ) and 3 Oreo cookies for Santa. He ate all of them but a small Crumb. I think She will giggle in the morning. Here is a few pictures we took tonight. Dad had already gone to bed.
