Our Conference Weekend!

What a fun Conference Weekend we had!!!! Ron, Laurel and Spencer all came up to stay for the weekend and we put them to work!!

We rented a rototiller and dug up the whole backyard!! How exciting! 

We never would have got this done without them. We did have somewhat of a yard but it was mostly weeds and gopher holes… so we thought having a fresh start would be the easiest. 

They came up Friday while Brian was at work and basically had it done by the time he got home! haha.   I tried to help rake it flat but they kicked me out… apparently they didn't want another preemie on their hands haha. 

We got it all dug up and flattened on Friday and then all seeded and fertilized on Saturday morning. We are so excited to have a yard to play in! Boston is going to love it! And we are so grateful for Brian's family for all their help, they were amazing!! Hopefully we should have some grass poking up in a couple weeks :) 

But we didn't work the whole weekend.. it actually went a lot faster than anyone thought it would. We had a lot of fun watching Conference together and hanging out at home too.

Thankfully Boston's naps were mostly during both sessions so he wasn't too much of a distraction. When he was awake he loved the hymns though, he would walk up to the TV and just listen, he is so funny!

It is a lot harder to listen with this crazy guy running around, but you forgive him when he comes to give you hugs! 

Grandma and grandpa brought a HUGE ( I didn't take a picture for some dumb reason but it is seriously the biggest thing I have ever seen!!!) Easter basket filled with toys and candy! Boston is so spoiled! 

We love Grandma visits and cuddles!

He loved the peeps! They were his favorite treat haha I think he hate the whole box in like 10 min. 

mmm…. sticky!

Playing with some stickers out of his basket :)

He got bubbles too!  They didn't taste very good but he loved when Grandma would blow bubbles at him! 

They didn't work awesome because it was so windy hah but that didn't stop him from giggling lots when they would pop in his face :)

I put together our 72 hour kits during one session which was fun! Notice how there are 4 piles!?!? Crazy to think we will be a family of 4 soon! 

We love when family comes to visit, it was such a good weekend!! 
 But either than that nothing too exciting going on...

Boston just had his 15 month check-up (although he is 16 months)

He is 26 lbs (80%) and 33 inches (75%) 
He is running all over the place making messes, still no new words (everything is a ball….) but is understanding a lot more of what we say. He is starting to get more independent and wanting to do things on his own (like stairs) haha which I guess is good. 

He can eat a whole apple all by himself! But he thinks it's a ball….

He gets into everything… I try to contain him to just the living room but once in a while he sneaks into places he shouldn't. I heard him calling for me one day and he was stuck under our bed haha. 

He sure gets injured a lot but he is a total boy and it doesn't even phase him. He is always COVERED in bruises and cuts. They are mostly his fault but this eye sore was kinda mine… I was letting him play with the hammer outside while we were building our fence and he hit himself in the eye haha… ooops.

I love this little guy! I can;t wait to see him as a big brother… it is gonna be hilarious. 

Baby #2 is doing awesome!! (Me at 18 weeks) 

22 weeks!

Everything is still looking really good and I have been feeling great lately, only one more appointment with the specialist and then I can be treated as a normal pregnancy after that. (I hope that means I can stop these painful shots every week soon!) They actually think I could be going over this time because I am measuring quite above average now hahah but I will try my best not to let that happen! I think it is safe to say Boston came so early because he was so sick and not because of me. But we are so excited and so thankful everything is going smoothly this time. July still seems so far away….

Life is good :)
