I have reached the very miserable part of pregnancy. All I want to do is cry because my body throbs non stop. Especially my back and belly. This girl moves non stop and its such hard and quick movements it makes me sick sometimes. We were sitting on the couch watching tv and she was going crazy as usual and Kamrin had his arm across my lap and after about 2 minutes of her going wild he looked at my belly and said "My goodness little girl Im trying to concentrate on this show and you are making it impossible!" I started laughing. We now have everything we need for her besides well a name :-) Its coming so fast!!

Our Easter was great this year! The kids slept in a bit which is always a nice present for mommy and daddy! When they woke up they were so excited to see that the Easter Bunny came. They were all so spoiled and loved it all. After seeing everything they got they went on an egg hunt that the bunny left for them. We then made a YUMMY breakfast and ate way too much. By then Kamdyn was ready for a nap and so were Kamrin and I. We all laid down and let the older 2 stuff the eggs for our hunt with my family later that night. We went up to Kamrins grandmas and ate with them and did a hunt with them before we ate. We then headed to my aunts and did a big hunt with all the kids. We have so much candy it makes me sick just thinking of it all! The kids had such a great time and so did we! They all looked so so so adorable too!!!

This picture turned out awesome with how the light was coming through the window!

Kamdyn went to his, Maddie and Jaydans baskets and pulled out every dum dum he could see!! :-)

He actually did the egg hunt right!!!!

First Staple

We have been able to dodge stitches or staples so far since becoming parents but that changed on Friday night. I was putting the kids to bed and Maddie was insisting she needed to run back up and give Kamdyn loves. That girl comes up with any and all excuses to drag out our bed time routine. I finally gave in and told her to hurry and then come right back. Of course she was taking a while so I went to the bottom of the stairs and said "Come on sissy" She started coming and when she got to the top of the stairs she slipped from running and fell down a few of the stairs. From my view it looked like she only hit her bum and back but as I caught her she was screaming and holding her head. I was holding her and trying to get her to calm down and held my hand on her head where she was grabbing. By this time Kamrin had come to the top of the stairs to check on her. My hand started feeling weird so I pulled it away and sure enough it was COVERED in blood. I carried her up the stair and Kamrin took her in the kitchen and put her on the counter to check out the back of her head. As he was trying to see where all the blood was coming from he couldnt see any wound because there was way too much blood. The whole back of her head was bright red. Ill be honest I was a bit freaked out. None of my kids have ever had wounds that have bled like this before and to make it worse it was from her head. Kamrin put her in the bath tub to rinse out her hair so he could see how bad the wound was. I got a flash light and it still took us a while to see it because every time we would rinse it out more blood would cover it instantly. Finally he got a look at it and said we needed to take her in for stitches. We let her pick which one of us would take her and the other would stay here with the boys who were already in bed. She picked her daddy which was no surprise to me. After all she is the biggest daddys girl ever! As he was carrying her out the door she asked to go to her Grandma Nets house. I told her she needed to go to the doctor but I could call and see if Grandma could go with and that cheered her up. My mom was able to go so I told her I would take her to pick up Grandma and we would both go with her to the doctor. Once we go there they but numbing gel on the wound and it had to sit on there for 20 minutes. They said that they were gonna do staples instead of stitches since it was on the back of her head. After 20 minutes they called us back again and the nurse cleaned it all of and the doctor came in and did the staple. He said one staple should do the trick. Maddie was so brave! I was so proud of her! She only cried for 30 seconds or so right after he put it in and not at all the rest of the time. They gave her a popsicle and we headed to take my mom home. She wanted to go in and show Grandma Rushworth before heading home. Grandma Rushworth gave her a bag of candy and let her pick a drink for the way home. I thought that night would be rough and she would wake up quite a bit but to my surprise she slept the whole night long! She has been doing great with the whole situation. Im so proud of her! We go back on Friday to get the staple out.

Friend Hunt

My friend and I decided to do an egg hunt and other Easter activities for our kids. The other activities we planned and got stuff for didnt work out but the egg hunt was a success and the kids had a blast. Kamdyn was making me laugh so hard. He found all the smarties on the babies side of the hunt and loaded his hands full of them. He wouldnt let them go and didnt care about all the eggs and other stuff we put out there for the babies. He wouldnt put them in his basket even. He was the worst egg hunter ever :-)

He was so proud of his smarties stash :-)
