Babies, Babies, Babies!! and No Surgery!! (sort of)

This last week and a half I personally know 5 people that have had babies!! And I know 2 more that are due any day now! CRAZY!! And of course everyone keeps telling me...Isn't it about time for another one for your family too?! WHAT?? I think it's just so crazy how once Ko hit the one year mark, everyone keeps on asking when we're having another one, and that it's about that time for us. WHAT?? It can't already be that time! I swear I just gave birth to Ko! And after hearing all of these crazy stories about epidurals not working, I have made a decision....I'm never having another baby again!!! You girls have all got me freaked out! Sorry Ko, I guess you are going to just have to be a spoiled only child! HA! Okay, who am I kidding? Of course I will be having more children! If any of them are like Ko, I could probably have ten more! Okay, probably not ten...I think I would have to take crazy pills for the rest of my life! So back to my purpose of this post...

I just want to congratulate everyone that is either prego, due any day, or that just had a baby, whether it is your first or fourth!! Motherhood is such an amazing experience and it will change your life forever. Also for the few of you who are still trying to get pregnant and have yet to be successfull...keep trying!! It will happen when the time is right, and when you are least expecting it!

Here are some pictures of my beautiful neice Irelynn Frame. She was born on 6-06-08 weighing in at 6 lbs. 14 oz. and 19 inches. She is such a little sweetheart and I am so grateful to our Heavenly Father for letting her be born to such wonderful parents! Aspen wasn't so sure about her little sister at first, but she is doing much better now that they are home! ( I stole some of your pics Jess...sorry!)

I also want to congratulate Adam & Angi Bradley on the birth of their baby! She was so sure it was a boy.....

Remington Cole Bradley was born on 6-08-08 weighing in at 8 lbs. 9 oz. and 21 inches. Congrats to the Bradley's! I can't wait to meet her!!

Dustin had his appointment with the orthopedist on Wednesday to find out the fate of his collar bone. The prognosis....NO SURGERY!!! We were so relieved that the doc really didn't feel that it was necessary to operate! He showed us the x-rays and said that it was a pretty nasty break, but that it should just end up healing by itself.

But wait...we're not out of the clear just yet! Dustin had a follow-up appointment with another orthopedist on Thursday for his knee that has been bothering him pretty badly for the last 6 months or so. The prognosis...SURGERY!!! Somehow the end of his femur was badly bruised and some of the bone died. Some pieces broke off the bone and are now stuck under his patella. They are going to go in and take out some of the bone fragments and do some "cleaning" of his knee. Then they are going to take a piece of bone from another part of his knee and screw it into the end of his femur where the bone is missing. AAAHHH!! The poor guy can't seem to catch a break! So since he is off work for his clavicle, we decided to have the surgery in the next few weeks. Anyone know some good ways for me to make some extra money??!!! I am a great house cleaner..... :)

June 10, 2006!

Dustin and I are celebrating our TWO year anniversary on Tuesday! I honestly can't believe it's already been two years!! I'm not going to get too mushy or anything....but I want my sweet husband to know that I love him with all my heart! He does everything he possibly can do for our family! He is a wonderful husband, an amazing daddy and my best friend! Sadly we probably won't be doing too much for our anniversary, since my hubby can hardly move right now, but I am still excited to be spending the whole day together!

Okay, enough with the lovey dovey stuff! On another note, Dustin's collar bone is well....still broken :( We have an appointment with an orthopedist on Wednesday to find out if he is going to need surgery or not. Hopefully it will be able to just heal on its own! His shoulder isn't as big as it was over the weekend, but it still looks pretty nasty! You can now run your hand along the bone and feel the break! Eeww, it makes me cringe just thinking about it! Here are some lovely pictures for your enjoyment :)

The Last Few Weeks.....

Be prepared for a long post!! Our computer crashed on us about a week ago, so I haven't been able to post anything for awhile! Here it goes...

Me and a couple of my girlfriends, along with my sidekick Kohen, decided to make a trip down to St. George for the Memorial Day weekend. It was so much fun being with my girls!! We were able to visit our friends Courtney and Matt Orme down in Vegas, meet up with Doug and Rachel, and we were also able to visit with our friend Kathleen Price. It was a great weekend filled with lots of girl talk, no sleep, lots of food, more girl talk and great friends!! Thanks Jami, Heidi and my little Ko-man for going! And thanks Matt & Court for showing us a great time in was so good to be able to see you guys!!


Our good friends Doug & Rachel Shaw are taking on a new adventure! Doug has been accepted to dental school in Buffalo, New York! We are so excited for them to be starting this new chapter in their lives, but we are also very sad to see them go. Me and my girlfriends have been able to get together for some quality girl time together and Doug and Rach also had a BBQ so they could say good bye to all thier friends. Jami, Court and Emily were very missed!

and finally....


Last night after we put Kohen to bed, Dustin decided to go for a quick bike ride. About 30 minutes later he was calling my phone. I figured that one of two things had happened...he either called to tell me that he was going to stop by Aron's house, or he was calling to tell me that he wrecked. Well sadly it was that he has wrecked! He said that he was laying on the side of the road, and that he couldn't get up, so I needed to come get him. When I got there someone had already called an ambulance ( I think the ambulance was a little overboard, but Dustin told the guy that called for it that he couldn't get up ). I could tell just by looking at him that he had either dislocated his shoulder or that his collar bone was broken. He was taken up to Alta View and his sister April was his nurse! I was glad that she was his nurse because he was pretty cranky by then! Turns out he broke his collar bone!! I didn't see the x-ray but April said that the bones were overlapping eachother!! OUCH! On top of that, he has some pretty nasty road rash all over his left side! If any of you have broken your collar bone I'm sure you'll remember that every move you make puts you in some pretty intense pain! So for now he is on sick leave at work until he can get better! Poor guy!
