0545 (a.m.) Woken by the squaks on the baby monitor. (Such a bitter sweet sound). Brandon had kissed me goodbye at 0400 to go hunting with his brother.
Fed Kade a bottle changed a diaper, turned off my lamp and let him go back to sleep for a while. I also went to sleep on the couch, I can't sleep in the same bed as Kade for many different reasons. Sometimes it happens and it's fun but most of the time I end up somewhere else.
0730 Laid by Kade on the bed as he watched Baby Monet and I got a couple more minutes of sleep. YES so lovely.
Changed more diapers played the usual baby stuff. Took a bath with kade, so fun.
0845 Put Kade in his cadillac and turned it on (His swing) He went to sleep.
Laundry time. Watched T.V.
1030 Abby (my sis) came over to watch Kade. Vahia Brandons friend came up and visited with us. He was staying the labor day weekend.
1100 Went up in the Hills with Bill and Jan (my inlaws) to pick choke cherries. Picked until about 1600 then we headed home.
1730 arrived home. B was home already. Kade was sleeping.
1900 Went to Cafe Rio for dinner. YUM.
2100 Put Kade to bed, B watched football, I went to sleep.
There it is I know you want to call Hollywood so they can do a movie bout the things rollin round my brain. (Did anyone catch that.....?? No? Counting crows song)
So there ya go kinda like a soap opera, if you haven't seen it in years just watch it one day and your all caught up.
Summers been great. Lots of gardening, yard work, hay and baby. I'm learning a lot about it all. I'm in love my husband and my kid we are living a pretty sweet life by my standards anyway. Catch ya up later, love ya all. Amy

Bath time is so fun I think he is so cute all naked and playing in the water. It's so fun.
Aunt Abby is reading Kade a really cute book
my sister Amanda found. And so appropriate for Kade whose dadddy is a cowboy. Way Out West With a Baby. It's so cute and Kade just listens to it intently.

But I know what you are thinking, you've never seen such a cute little boy. I know I know I hear it all the time.
We are having so much fun. He has recently in the last couple days been grabbing his legs and feet. He just rolls up in a ball and onto his side. For a while now he has been sucking his thumb. Thats how I know he's mine. He may look like a Torngren but he sucks his thumb like his mom did. I hope he doesn't do it as long as I did. That was kind of an embarassing habit in college.

Me and Brandon just can't believe how much we love this little guy. We just stare at him and go on and on about his toes or his lips or cheeks. It is fun.
And Brandon has been so good to me and Kade. He is such a good Daddy and husband. I love him more today then I did the day went into the hospital, I didn't think that was possible but alas,... it is.

Then we had a "Fetal Loss and grieving" training at work. One gal that works in the NICU and another that works in Womens Center talked about their losses and their own experiences with losing their babies. Lets just say that we were all bawling our eyes out and I couldn't believe how selfish I was. I'm so grateful for what I have and I defenitely wouldn't trade my trials for theirs.
It's been pretty fun to actually call a home our own after renting and living the single life before we got married for so many years.
B took some great pictures one day when it was snowing. This is pepper the dog and Skinny Jim the horse.
This is most of B's horse, Dusty is on the left, Skinny Jim and Snip is the mare behind skinny Jim. She is expecting also about a month after me. The other day while I was driving by the corral I stopped just to take a look at her. She comes walking to the fence by my car very slowing like she can hardly move, and looks at me with this look of misery only the pregnant could understand. I just thought, "I know how you feel Snip. I know how you feel." All except for that fact I sleep in a comfy bed and she has to hang out there in the snow and cold and her baby probably weighs fifty pounds more than mine.

You Are Pocahantas!
Free-spirited and wise. You have a strong passionate spirit that touches and changes all who know you. The wisdom and common sense that you have is really what guides you through life. Even so, you also have a very playful side that loves adventure and excitement.
Which Disney Princess Are You?

"I got called as Scout Master." Many things went through my head. My first response was, "Thats great...you are gonna be really good at that." In my head I'm thinking, "There goes my husband that I have enjoyed so much. It was nice while it lasted."
That was pretty crafty of the bishop since I was working and all when he called him, sustained him in sacrament meeting and even set him apart after church. I didn't even get to be there. Which maybe was a good thing cause I may have objected. I guess we have had it pretty easy coasting under the radar since we've been married. Never in a place long enough. No kids. pretty much we have been living the high life. Nothing to tie us down or demand our time, besides our jobs. Already I felt like mutual tonight was the other woman. Baby coming in a couple months. I guess it's time for the honeymoon to be over. How sad.
We truely have claim over nothing and no one.
I want to give a little shout out to a gal that called me on the phone the other day.
Her: "I have a question, could I talk to a nurse."
Me: "I'm a nurse."
Her: "Well I am 38 weeks pregnant and I am already dilating. Is it ok if I get a bikini wax?"
Me: "Um.... I think that is ok, take some tylenol...I guess."
In my head,..."Personal preference I don't think I need to be in on this decision."
We all had a good laugh over that when I hung up. I told my compadres and Marsha a fellow nurse said, "You should have told her, "Oh yes please do, we prefer it." Yeah that would be great if some girl out there goes telling people in the community that a L&D nurse told her we prefer her to get a bikini wax. That would be just great.
We get some great calls. Some of the best come in the middle of the night like at 3 in the AM and a lot of times begin with, "Can I get pregnant if....?" and you can fill in the rest with pretty much any thing. Oh,....good times, it makes it a really fun job. But don't get me wrong there are plenty of other fun things too.
