The search for the missing poop!!

Soren and I had an enjoyable rainy day of watching Marley and Me (he's a puppy lover), followed by some house cleaning.  I decided to let my little boy run around naked because he has had pretty loose poops and some what of a sensitive bottom.  So I thought I would let him air out for a bit.  We were about half way through the upstairs when I smelt a dirty diaper.  I said, lets go Soren, time to change your diaper so we don't stink up our freshly cleaned upstairs.  At that moment I looked down and just barely missed smeared poop all over the bathroom floor.  I quickly realized that he still didn't have a diaper on and the main part of this mess was somewhere else.  Soren quickly got put in the bathtub and instantly the bathtub was filled with poop also.  See picture...
So Soren comes out, I drain the water and go searching for the missing poop.  I found three more piles of it.  Thank goodness I had a sink full of pinesol and began scrubbing the messes.  Soren and I then both needed a bath!!  He was very excited to tell his daddy what had happened later!

On another note...

We just had our 12 week doctor apptment and everything went really well.  We heard the heartbeat which was in the 160's.  That is one of the best sounds you could ever hear!  We also got to stop the progestrone shots I was getting twice a week.  So please pray that my body would produce enough of this on its own.

Dustin and I had a wonderful time on our little winter get-away this past week.  The grandparents were gracious in giving Soren a fun week as well.  We stayed at The Hilton and enjoyed talking, laying out in the sun (I got terrible burn lines!!!  See picture below), eating at very good resturants and getting room service, and sleeping.  As nice as it was to get away together, by the last day we were more than ready to see our little boy.  

And if anyone is counting today in our pregnancy we hit 12 WEEKS!!!  Lately we have both been having a strong feeling it is a boy.  So if you have any wonderful boy names let us know!!  Here is a little picture of the baby bump.

SPRING is in the air!!

How fresh these last few days have felt.  The warm air and melting snow has been such a treat this week.  Soren and I have been enjoying the outdoors as much as we can.  This is the first time he has been able to run wild!!  We walked up to the school near our house and met Caleb, Nana, Alicia, and Lucy up there for some playtime!  Soren loved climbing up the slide just a little bit and then sliding down.  He felt very big!  

Soren also descovered the fun of markers this week.  He loves coloring all over himself.  Here he is showing off his artwork and saying, "cheese."

Just for fun, here is Soren one year ago!!

The Catch-Up Post

We have had many exciting things going on in the last couple weeks.  I'll try to play catch-up here.  First off Samantha's gymnastics team made it to state!!  I am so proud of how hard the girls worked this year and had such a great time coaching Samantha.  It was a blessing to be able to see her in a different setting than at home around family.  She is such an amazing friend and hard worker.  She won beam at sections and made it to state individually on beam, floor, vault, and the all-around, as well as a team.  At state she was beautiful out on the Gopher floor!!  She tied for 6th on Vault and Beam.  Way to go Sam!  

Caleb turned 3 this past weekend and had a great Buzz Lightyear birthday party.  Soren had a great time with all the other boys there.  The highlight was watching all these boys attack Bozo the clown with swords!  Soren was very timid but surprised us by getting in there and hitting the clown a few times!!

Lastly, I had a great time with my highschool girlfriends this past week.  Everyone came and brought food.  We wanted to celebrate Andrea picking a place for here weeding.  She also asked us all to be bridesmaids!  I can't wait to help her celebrate her special day!!  Here we all are piled on the couch.  Soren also had a great time playing with all the girls!
