An update that is LONG over due.....

December was a very busy month for our family of 3 and 1/2 (almost), and it didn't slow done in January either. We celebrated Nic's birthday three times! Once with his family, once with just the three of us, and another time with a combined party for him and Scott Adams. It was alot of fun and we were so thankful for everyone who came to help us celebrate. Taya had an ultrasound done of her kindey. The doctor said that he couldn't tell much from the ultrasound but it didn't look like the kidney was hardening, which can be a side effect of the procedure she had done. We go back for another dreaded VCUG test on March 6th. This will show if the procedure worked. She is back on antibiotics once a day. She's become a good sport and doesn't fight it anymore. I don't understand why they have to make kids medicine taste so nasty.... I guess so they don't try to drink it all the time... hmmm who knows?

Taya is getting so grown up. She will talk your ear off if you give her the chance. If you have ever seen here with her little baby dolls you will know that is going to be an AWESOME big sister. I wonder if she will be a bit too helpful???!!! Here are a few happenings from this past month in a half....

Nic and I did celebrate our third anniversary on January 20th.... It is amazing how time has flown by. I sure do love him. He is the biggest tease I have ever met, but I love that about him. It is never a dull moment around our house and he is constantly keeping me laughing... even if most the time because he is making fun of me!!! We were able to escape to Greer Lodgings, in Greer AZ for the weekend. My parents kept Taya and it was really nice to get away with just the two of us! I didn't bring my camera cause I am pregnant and blonde.... ENOUGH SAID!! LOL! But here are a couple pictures I took with my phone. These pictures really aren't much but if you get an opportunity to go up to Greer. GO!! It is beatiful up there and the resturants surrounding the cabins are excelent!

Any of you who know my husband know that he is ALWAYS on the go. The man can't sit still. He always has to be doing something productive, or what he may think is productive. He rarely sleeps in and any thing he can do to help some one else he will do. Anyway he was suppose to go straight home from work last Wednesday when his dad called and needed help with fixing his window on his truck, it was off the track or something. Any way Nic went over to help his dad out. I got to the house about 5:15 to pick up Taya and it wasn't ten min later that Randa came in and told me to stay in the house and for Nic's mom to come outside. Wierd?? I thought so too. So I waited a few min. then walked outside to see Nic holding a towel against his hand a few drops of blood here and there all over the carport. I looked at him and asked, "How bad is it?"
He replied, "Pretty bad???"
ME: Does it need stitches?
His mom: YES!
ME: Do we need to go to the Urgent Care?
Nic: YES!
ME: Well, let's go.
I think I was a bit in shock and in trying to keep my cool, he thought I was mad that he had cut himself, lol. I laughed and told him that it was me trying not to panic. His mom called and Urgent Care near their house that is run by Doctor's she works with. So even though it was a Pediatric Urgent Care, they let us come on over. We were there for about 2 hours. I have never seen Nic in so much pain. It brought tears to his eyes. He couldn't sit still either he just waltzed all over the place. He made it through it though it is healing slowly but getting a bit better every day. He had to get 5 stiches and he will lose he finger nail off his left pointer finger. You are probably wondering how he cut it?? Well I still don't understand something about a wire and a motor and releasing this thingy that came back and SLICE!! It was dangling at first. Nic was pretty sure he cut it off. We are lucky it wasn't any worse than it was. Any where here are a few pictures...

As for me... Well I stay plenty busy with the two of them lol. I did get to watch Randa's kids last Friday... It was alot of fun and show's me what I will be doing in a couple years... busy busy busy.

We look forward to our new arrival. We find out what it is March 3rd! YAY!! Hopefully I can stay on top of this! Any we love you all!
