March 2015


On March 13th we put LB down. I scheduled it while Ryan was in Utah. I really wanted him with me, but we didn't want to make LB suffer any longer. I took these pictures before we left for the vet. His nose was constantly bloody and when the vet weighed him he'd lost half his weight in the last 4 months. The vet was really nice and empathetic. They asked me if I wanted to be there when they put him down, but I didn't. They made a little mold of his paw for us which I though was so nice. They gave us a few moments to say our goodbyes then we left. It was a really sad day. For the next few days I had to keep telling Hannah that LB was in Heaven with Jesus. We miss him.

I took Hannah to get her first real haircut on March 18th. It needed a lot of evening out. She was really nervous at first but was just fine once they gave her  a sucker. It looks so much better and she even got sparkles in it.

The Singleton's came for Spring Training again and we got to join them for an Angels game. Always a great time with them.

My dad had to have surgery and have his eardrum replaced. It has still never quite healed right.

Hannah and I made this fun Easter craft.

We took a hospital tour on March 3rd and were very impressed. I'm delivering at Mercy Gilbert which is 3 miles from our house. The tour was in the evening and as we drove up to the Hospital we felt like we were at a resort. The streets are lined with palm trees and there are big lights. It's very nice. All the rooms are private. They have "nap time" from 3-5 everyday where you are encouraged to nap and no one will come in and bother you. I think I'll be very happy there.

This month Hannah started saying "thank you" and "please." She constantly asks to "watch Elmo." She sings "Elmo's World" "Popcorn Popping" and "I am a Child of God." On March 9th I started round one of potty training. I chose this date because we thought she was ready and Ryan was in Utah for his sister, Brianna's wedding.  It went terribly and I did not like the way I was acting towards her so we stopped and decided to try again later. My goal was to get it done before baby came, but oh well. She has gotten wild. She loves Daddy and gets so hyper when he's home, she doesn't act that way around me. She loves to have us kiss her owies better then says "all better."

We started a music class on March 19th. There were only 3 kids in the class and it was a lot of fun. We sang fun songs and the teacher had bells,shakers and scarves for us to dance with. We also did a parachute.  Hannah is 37" tall. She loves her arms and back tickled in bed.

On March 25th Hannah's top molars started poking through, yay! Of course she got a runny nose, as usual, but no more teething! Randomly, she told us the baby is "Joseph." We don't know where she got that from, but we definitely added that to our list. 

I think we've hit the terrible two's. She is defiant, loud, and whiny. She still loves to read though and she talks so well. She says "hi" to everyone and follows big kids around, but as soon as she gets asked a question or we start FaceTiming with grandma/grandpa she acts shy She points to things and says "who dat?"

Pregnancy progress. My feet are still swollen. My Midwife office gave me a free massage coupon and I cashed it in, it was amazing.

Woke up to some pretty fog

Snuck some pictures of Hannah at Tumbling

It was a big day when she let her tumbling teacher put stamps on her hands.

Nice post nap sweaty hair.

Still proud of her stamps

She loves to "exercise" with me. 

Grandma sent a fun Valentine's package.

This was a late night when she wandered into our room like this.

Love those curls.

Fun at the park

Didn't even make it under the covers

Valentine flowers from Daddy.

My Valentine.

On Valentine's two kids in our ward offered childcare from 4-8 for only $10. We couldn't pass up a date night! We'd planned to go see "The Imitation Game" but when we got there it was sold out. We were super bummed but headed to dinner. We went to Red Robin and had a long wait. After almost an hour we were starving and decided to just go to Paradise Bakery. There was no one there and we enjoyed a nice meal before heading back to pick up Hannah. Not the best Valentine's, but ya win some ya lose some. Also, it was packed and just crazy traffic and people everywhere. Lesson learned.  Hannah had a great time and they even made this cute craft, had dinner, and watched a movie. We have so many great teens in our ward. Their mom felt so bad that our date was terrible that she offered to watch Hannah another time for free.

I found these Kale chips at Costco and she loves them. Win! She also loves sweet potato chips/

I went to a Pampered Chef freezer meal party and made these 7 meals in prep for baby. I remember after I had Hannah, Ryan's mom came and made a bunch of freezer meals for us. It was so great. 

Her hair is curly except for that one strand in the back. I love it.
We went to the Idea Museum with some friends. This place is amazing! We brought a lunch and spent the whole day there. Hannah spent most of her time in the kitchen playing with the food. We will definitely be going back.

Hannah's tumbling class is held at a library, so during class I browsed their book sale. I picked out these for my Fancy Nancy-loving daughter. 

Ryan's boss sent these for baby boy. 

We have the best home teacher. He and his wife brought this by. YUM!

February Tidbits:

Hannah loves "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes." Her nursery teacher says she's funny and always talks in 3rd person and knows all the words to the songs. "Hannah go under the table " etc. She narrates her life, it's pretty funny. She says "Daddy too big" when he sits on the chair haha. Says "Whoopsie Daisy!" She likes me to sing songs fast and slow. We introduced her to Darius Rucker and she requests "Wagon Wheel" and Dierks Bentley.

She weighs 35 pounds and is 36" tall. She can point out letters and says V Victor or U Umbrella. She also knows her shapes. She can point out a triangle, circle, square, oval, and hexagon. I can thank Sesame Street for that. She can count to nearly 20.

She is a night owl. She will stay awake some nights until 10:30. When I went in her room one night she had her lights on and was wearing 3 pants. She had dumped all her blankets out of her closet and was talking to her stuffed animals. Another night she was up past midnight and kept coming out of her room. I finally locked her door and went to bed. She fell asleep with the light on.

Her current favorite book is Green Eggs & Ham. She asks me to read it again and again.

One day at the park she decided she wanted to run in the splash pad so i stripped her down to her diaper. She put on her sunglasses and said "show boys." She says "hi sweety!" and "Momma where are you?" and "Hannah boogerface." One day she put a lid on her head and said "happy birthday!" During sacrament meeting one Sunday she kept saying "go potty" and pointing to the door. She's said is a few times since. Maybe time to start potty training? (more on that next month)
One day she said "right back" went and got her bunny and a diaper. She put it on then took it off and put bunny on the potty. She's always playing pretend kitchen and "making applesauce."

She got sick on the 21st this month with a cough and fever.

LB's blood work for his liver and kidney's came back normal. I took him in again because he was sneezing and had obvious weight loss. He's still anemic, but needs to take in more calories.
