Can they really call this a Winter storm in Spring?


Oklahoma City Zoo

No kidding…

Bear fight!

Look Grandpa, they are real!

Today, Jason and I went to the zoo. We had a lot of fun looking at the animals and we definitely got exercise walking around the park. 

Weird Weather

Four days ago it was a high of 80, two days ago it snowed, and today it was drizzly in the morning and beautiful in the afternoon. Only in Oklahoma!

3 Months and a Little Baby Bump

The past few days I have noticed my pants have been tighter. I looked in the mirror and I think there might be somewhat of a little baby bump there. (I already have some unwanted pudge, but this feels different.) Anyway, what do you think?I tried very hard not to push my stomach out while taking these…. 🙂

Sadie’s New Digs

Hi Mom!!

Look how happy she is.

Jason and I were at Lowes last weekend with his parents when they spotted a kennel on sale for $50. The box had been damaged, but the actual kennel had not. We decided to buy it knowing that deals like this don’t come around everyday. Today, Jason with help from our neighbors set it up. Sadie sat with me and watched it get finised and then we let her explore. She seems to really like it! Here are some pictures of her checking out her new outside play space.

13 Week Appointment

I had my 13 week appointment today and everything went well! The baby’s heart beat was strong and I have been feeling great. ( A little nauseated in the morning, but still great.) I have another appointment in 4 weeks and my next ultrasound will be anywhere between my 20th and 22nd week of pregnancy. (About another 7-9 weeks away.) That is when we will find out what we are having. Yes, we are finding out! We wish we knew now. 🙂 

Anyway, I was so glad my appointment went well. It is great to hear the baby’s heartbeat. I should start to show in the next few weeks which is also very exciting! My doctor put my due date at Sept 7th, so there is a big possibility my family will have yet another September baby.


People have been asking me if I have been craving anything. I used to say no, but I have come to realize that there is definitely a trend in what I have been eating lately. I guess I was wrong. I do have cravings.

 In a nutshell, I have been craving Taco Bell, chinese food and ice cream or sherbert. I have also traded in peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for grilled cheese. Jason’s Deli’s salad bar has also become a favorite of mine. (Jason’s Deli is a deli out here that reminds me of Erik’s Deli back home.) Weird I know, but I guess I can’t control what the baby wants… right? 🙂

Update on Riley

Riley had surgery Monday and everything went well. Riley is now recovering. Thank you to everyone who has been praying for her.
