Another week has come and gone....

Gerry got to baptize Sister Velma Simpson on Saturday. It was so neat to see him do this. I love that he is growing within the church and willing to do more and more. I love watching him pass the sacrament and performing his priesthood duties. He has come such a long way and I love him more and more everyday! How lucky I am to have such a wonderful husband who has loved me through all the rough times.

Summer is definately here. I do not like the heat at all. Jailynn and I try to stay in as much as possible. When we do get out it is to go somewhere where there is air conditioning or water. Jailynn loves to go to her gym class each week. It is fun for me to watch her explore and play with the other kids.
Sometimes she will just sit somehwere or be walking around talking away. We have no idea what she is saying, but she thinks she is saying something. It is so funny to just watch her sometimes. She now will dissapear on us and we have to go looking for because when we call her she doesn't respond. When she dissapears that is the only time besides when she is sleeping that she is quiet. I am telling you this girl has so much to say!!!

Sunday, July 20, 2008 we are again. So I am just over 9 weeks pregnant. I had my first dr. appointment this last Friday. The baby is even moved during the ultrasound they did. It is measuring a little smaller than nine weeks, but they aren't going to change the dates just yet. The baby should be due around Feb. 20, 2009. In about 8 - 10 weeks we will find out what it is. I am so excited!! Gerry is hoping for a boy this time. I feel a boy would be nice, but we already have girl stuff....we will see though. Whatever it is, as long as it is healthy we will be happy!!
I think that we are planning on going to the temple at the end of August. That is if all the paperwork is done by then. We are hoping though.

July Already!!!

She loves teddy grahams and gold fish.....and just about anything else you give her! I have been the best blogger lately. I do not remember being so tired when I was pregnant with Jailynn though. Still doing good on the morning sickness though. Some days I do feel extremely drained though. Things are going well around here though. I have my first dr. appt this friday....just a little nervous because I know that they will take some blood and that kind of thing. Oh well...I am sure I will make it. Gerry is doing well also. He will be on leave this next week so we will see if we get to catch up on sleep. I am sure when Jailynn starts sleeping through the night, things will be much better until the next one comes and wants to eat throughout the night. I have seriously tried everything and she just likes to eat during the night. She only gets a bottle during the day when it time for her nap or time to go to bed. Other than that, it is food and other things to drink. I even tried putting her to bed later and it that just meant she woke up at a different time to eat, but the amount of time from sleep to wake was the same. Oh well.....she is just a hungry girl I guess. I finally took a picture of the three of us. I need to start taking more of those. Jailynn actually smiles at the camera now. She does have two teeth one the bottom even though you can't see them. She is also walking by herself now. She has been for about two weeks now. She thinks it is funny to run from Rusty and to chase him with food and tease him with it. I can't believe it is already the middle of July though. This year seems to be going so fast.

Gerry and I are just waiting on paperwork to be processed to be able to be sealed. He also has to go through for himself, but we are not waiting on anything for that. We will let everyone know when though! Thanks to all for the support that you have shown us! We really appreciate it! All in time though. I hope that everyone is doing well! I hope to see some of you soon!!!

Well....I haven't taken any recent pictures. I really need to work on that! Jailynn is trying to walk on her own. She lets go of the couch and just stands there. Sometimes she will take off and fall, but then she laughs at herself and the tries again. At least she doesn't cry when she fall or get discouraged. She likes to get in the pool now. She has a floaty that she will just sit and doesn't mind that either. She is getting quite the attitude though. If you take something away that she is not supposed to have, she throws a huge fit until you can find something else to interest her. Everyone tells me that it probably a good thing that we are having another for this reason. I will try and be better with pictures!!!
