Prayers Answered

I got a very exciting phone call this morning. Prayers have been answered!! My sister Marissa called me this morning to tell me that they just signed papers on their new baby girl. They got a phone call on Thursday letting them know that someone had chosen them and the baby was already here. They decided to keep it a secret until everything was final so, after they signed this morning she gave me a call to let me know that I had a new niece named Sarah. What a long awaited blessing. I can't wait to go and see her. I will post pictures as soon as they send them to me. They get to take her home on Tuesday! Yeah!!!

Cooper's first airplane ride & sitting up

So, we went to Vegas for my niece Maddie's baptism & my niece Daisy & nephew Garrett blessings. It was a great weekend. It is always fun to see our family. Cooper had his first airplane ride and he did pretty well. He didn't like the going up or coming down part very much but neither does Seth. Cooper is also sitting up now. He has been sitiing on his own for a few weeks but, I hadn't gotten a good picture until recently. He is pretty reliable and doesn't fall down very often.

Cooper happy to see Aunt Marissa

Cooper has been doing pretty well recently. He has not been as sick as he has in the past few months. We are on the countdown until we go to the hospital. I feel really blessed that we have had such wonderful medical care for him. UCSF Children's Hospital is one of the best in the country so I know he will be in good hands. I am grateful they are being so thorough. I am pretty calm about it all but, I think that may be just because I am in denial about it and it has been so far away. Now that it is getting closer it will probably become more real. I asked my friend Whitney to make him a special blanket to take with him to the hospital so he would have something really cozy to take with him. It turned out great and he absolutely loves it. Thanks Whitney!! He always likes to hold one of his pacifiers to fall asleep but you can see it on the edge of the crib because he dropped it to hold the blanket instead.

Isabelle left me an adorable note the other day it said, " To Mom luv Izzy". On the inside it said, (this is her adorable kidergarten spelling)" I luv yow so mush yow mac me happy!"(she loves exclamation points). In case you can't tell it says I love you so much, you make me happy. It is so fun now that she is reading and writing, what a special note. The other day when we were riding in the car she said, "Mom, when is President Hinckley's birthday?". I replied,"I'm sorry sweetheart, President Hinckley passed away.". She came back with, " I know but when he comes back to life, when will his birthday be?". Too cute.

Seth has always been a really good sleeper but, over the last week he has been having some bad dreams and become afraid of the dark. He has never slept with us before this last week but he keeps coming in sometime after 4 in the morning. The other night I heard him come in our room and I told him to go back to bed and he said, " Mom can you just share with me?" (pleading in his voice). How could I resist, I said ok and scooted over.
