Family Reunion

This weekend we went to Island Park, Idaho for a family reunion. We had sooo much fun. It is such a beautiful place. The picture below is of Big Springs, we canoed down this river and we saw a Moose and her baby. I was a little scared at first because I saw this show one time called Moose Gone Wrong or something like that. We also spent a day in West Yellowstone. I have never been to such a beautiful place, I wish we were able to spend more time there. We went to Old Faithful and had lunch as well.

The water is so clear its ridiculously gorgeous

Zach doesn't look to happy to have his picture taken A Video of Old Faithful

We also enjoyed long games of foosball, I am a pretty good defender. We also went four-wheeling which I loved and would probably go everyday if could. There was lots of good food too, so good that Zach did not refuse any of it! It was great to spend time as a family and I just have to say......I LOVE MY IN-LAWS!

A Mom of 2 under 2

Yep, Zach is going to be a big brother! We are so excited to be increasing our family. When I think of being a mother of two, I feel very excited but also very nervous. I remember how difficult it was trying to breastfeed. I was not very successful doing so with Zach because of some health problems I had. With this next baby I really want to be able to breastfeed. I know it will be hard and even more complicated than the first because I will have a toddler running around as well.If his sibling is anything like Zach than having 2 kids will not be so hard. But I am not so sure I will continue to have angel babies like Zach. I am sure there is a little menace up there in heaven waiting to come down, and this one could be it. I strongly felt like Zach needed to have a sibling close in age to play with and become good friends with.

I have been feeling great for the most part. I have had some morning sickness which I never had with Zach. I am sure mine isn't even as bad as some people get it and for that I am thankful. We are expecting this baby to arrive April 6th!

Zach's One!

My baby is one! Zach turned 1 a few weeks ago and I can't believe how much he has grown! He went from this...

to this!
I would not change one thing about this boy.

So his stats for his 1 year check up were : 23.8 lbs, 31 inches. He is bigger than both Tim and I were at a year.

This year has been the best year of my life and I love being a mother. I love waking up and walking into Zach's room and seeing him smile and picking him up and giving him a hug and a kiss every morning. He is just the happiest kid and he makes me laugh all the time. We have the greatest time together. He really is my little buddy and I love him more than I ever thought I could love a person. Happy Birthday son!
