OK OK... I get the hint!

Wow, I never thought I would be "that" blogger than didn't post anything for 2 months. Well, I guess I am. Many of you have given up on me so I don't blame you if it takes a month for you to even notice that I am updating things. Here is what has been going on since the last post.

1. Brad turned 28. For the first time in my whole life, I planned a surprise party. It was a success. We had many of our close friends from in and outside our neighborhood and Bonnie/Mike's family. Our good friend Stacey babysat Parker while Brad and I went to the Cheesecake factory ALONE! That was a treat all by itself. I was so nervous he would suspect things, but everyone was so great helping getting everything set and ready while we were gone. Thanks again! Brad really was surprised and he felt so loved.



2. Parker and I went to CA to visit with his Great Grandma (GG) while she had some alone time in the house before my parents got home from their mission. Traveling pregnant, alone with a 2 year old is not recommeded. Getting on the plane on time was seriously like that airport scene from Home Alone. Once the luggage was checked I had to get myself, Parker , a stroller, a back pack and a car seat on the plane with out any help. NEVER AGAIN! Luckily once we got on the plane he was pretty much an angel. So, Heather and Brandon Stewart picked me up from the Long Beach airport (thank you by the way) and to put icing on the cake from the whole traveling experience...I was pushing the stroller with Parkers big carseat resting on it while Parker sat in the car seat. We all "thought" it was secure until Parker took a face plant on the asphalt in the parking lot leaving a nice bruise on his forehead, a scratched up nose and a bloody chin. Oh yeah, to make things worse, I left the camera in Bonnie's car when she dropped me off at the airport. I felt so sad that I couldn't take any pictures of our 10 day trip.
On a VERY positive note. We had a great time while we were there. We ate at In N Out, El Torito, and El Pollo Loco. Spent lots of fun times with Heather and her family. Heather did take one picture while we were there. Maybe she can send it to me so I have something from that trip. hint hint Vanessa from the 1st ward was so great and let us hang out with her and play with all of Sam's toys. Parker would have been bored out of his mind with out those toys. THANK YOU!
Parker and I had such a wonderful time spending so many quality moments with GG. First thing every morning Parker wanted to go into GG's room to see her and play with her and get a jelly bean of course. He instantly fell in love with GG, (who wouldn't though). 2 months later he is still talking about GG. One of GG's favorite things was when she showed parker a Book of Mormom and asked what it was and his response was "Book of Morning." She said "well, I guess I DO read it in the morning most of the time. She would ask him this question multiple times a day and it never got old. Honestly, he is too cute. I know I am forgetting so many details, but we had such a great time and miss seeing GG every morning.
3. Next in events was on the 12th of September my parents came home from their mission. We didn't get to see them until the 26th. I have not been in "photo" mode so this is the only picture I got while they were here. I promise to get more when they come to visit when Garrett is born. we love you and we are so glad you are home. Parker misses his Grammie and Grandpa. He asks about them all the time.
4. Last thing is about ME. I am doing pretty great considering I only have a little under 3 weeks until I am induced. My doctor is awesome and scheduled me to be induced on the 23rd which is 5 days before my due date. I am ready to get Garrett out of me. I am running out of room for him. Is my belly big? Yes. Where is a belly picture then? Coming soon, I promise. Are you nesting? Big time. Is Parker excited for a little brother? I am not sure, but he sure does talk about Garrett all the time. Am I ready for Garrett? I am so nervous to be a mom of two kids and I don't know how I"ll handle it, but I do know I WANT HIM OUT. Any middle names? not yet.. any good ideas?

O' Emily I feel you babe. All I wanted in the entire world was to not be pregnant any longer. Those last few weeks almost made me go crazy. But it made the end all the more sweet. So much of the Euphoria I felt after Olivia was born came from knowing I wasn't pregnant anymore. I was just so happy!!!
I am so excited for you. I know these last 3 weeks will seem to take forever but they will be over soon and you will have sweet Garrett David (my suggestion) in your arms.
I love the cute picture of Grandpa and Parker. What a pair. I love seeing Grandparents with their Grandkids. My Mom and Dad left and I realized I never took a single picture with them. I guess it was the last thing on my mind that week. I have really slacked.
I hope time goes by quickly for you. And don't get to nervous. 2 Is a lot of work but you'll also be amazed at how much fun it is. And you'll love to see your boys together, it will just melt you.

Yay for a new post! I would never give up on you and a blog but I was close! Very cute and I look forward to seeing more pictures!

Ray Ball Fam said...

We've been waiting for you guys to resurface! Happy Birthday Brad, 30 is right around the corner! Emily you better get that bump pic before that baby comes out! Baby's come 2 weeks early all the time!

Jerilyn said...

Emily! You posted again! Believe it or not I check this all the time, and went to write an email tonight to make sure you were still alive and checked one last time. Its good to have and update, I'm glad you enjoyed Cali, and how fun to see your parents! I cant believe they are home already! AND I can't believe you are going to be a mother of 2 in a couple weeks! I have the 16th and 17th of Oct off, so if you need to do some things alone before the baby comes, I am free to babysit! I wan't to come and see you soon anyway if you are not feeling to crazy before the baby comes. Call me, or I will call you in the next day or two... Love ya!

ps my vote is Garret Ethan or Garret Lee (yes Lee is a guys middle name too :)

Russell and Trish said...

Emily..you are so cute! You are going to be a great mother of 2! Parker is adorable..i am excited to see what Garrett will look like. Sounds like you had fun when you went home.

Alicia States said...

Boys are fun fun fun! I'l be honest, adjusting to 2 is pretty much crazy for the first few months... but IT GETS EASIER! lol. We will definitely have to get together now that I'm back in good-ol' Utah! Actually, it's nice to be back... except that it's getting COLD! I'm glad to know things are going well for you!

Jessup Jive said...

Very sad to have missed Brads Party, busy having a baby and such. Glad you updated!!

Keli'i and Megan said...

Hooray! I NEVER thought you'd post again! Just kidding, but seriously, thanks for the update. Glad all is well, and definitely can relate to the anxiety of being a mommy of two...now I'm gonna have three and I'm REALLY freaking out! Can't believe another Ball here in about three weeks. Congrats!

You are such the good wife!!! How fun for Brad, and I LOVE the Happy Birthday board/plaque thingy-so cute.
What a fun Cali visit! Tell Heather to start a blog...
how fun for your parents to see you guys, now when will the visit be a permanent stay?

Feather Fam. said...

And I am going for Garrett Sara-does that have a ring to it?

TheHottonSix said...

Happy late B-day Brad.

Emily, my vote for middle name is either Garrett David or Garrett Douglass. I am a bit partial to the latter but either one is great. Your brothers are great too and we turned out okay so just put the names in a hat and whichever comes out will do for young Garrett. I guess ultimately the choice is up to you and Brad. So, good luck.
