Christmas & another cute Halen pic.

Does it really get any cuter than this? and my mom were shopping yesterday at Old Navy...(killer deals yesterday BTW) and one of the things on my list was a cute little hat for Halen...this one in the picture is actually a girls hat but we couldn't resist trying it on him...I tried about 5 or 6 on him...he was a good sport...he is such a happy baby. I love him...He loves to give and get kisses from mommy to. I really love this little man to death!. ( btw no we did not buy this one for him )

I don't know about other people...but I have had one especially naughty boy this year...he isn't a "BAD" kid...but very mischevous. He has a very smart mouth, likes to break his siblings toys ON PURPOSE! I have repeatedly told him that if he is not nice Santa will not bring him presents, that he will get a lump of coal...I also found this fun website that you can customize to your can choose whether or not they are naughty or nice to :) However none of this has seemed to work...So me and Justin are debating on whether we should go ahead and give him coal first thing in the morning, and let him sweat it out for the day...and then make it seem as though "Santa" delayed giving him his Christmas presents till later to show him that he needs to be a good boy. I guess we will see :) The following is a link to the video from "Santa" that I made for Brayden...pretty cute I think.

Halen and stuff

One of my favorite pics of him...and this shows just how blonde his hair looks like I bleached it.
And this shows how his big brothers are with him...they are so in love with the point I have to tell them to lay off sometimes.
My Snuggle baby.

Brayden & Halen

Landon & Halen

Aspyn & Halen ( this took some serious convincing to get this picture. She is starting to come around.)

I FREAKING LOVE this face. I could just squish his face when he does it. haha. To me he looks like Brayden as a baby with Landon's eyes, but with blonde hair.

Really dreadful picture of me...but I thought he looked cute in this picture. I look like I'm about 40 in this picture...yikes...

My lil man. 
I HEART Halen. :)

The little man is here...

Meet Halen Justin Browning. He was born Sunday November 6 at 8:22pm he weighed 7lbs 12oz and was 19 1/2" long. He has a full head of BLONDE hair...
I went in on Sunday morning about 11am..already knowing I was at least 4cm dilated and 37 weeks exactly...I was contracting again (still)  after being there an hour they said I changed to 5cm so they kept me...then they hooked me up to the pitocin...and from there I sat at 6cm until 7pm...after lots of begging for them to break my water a Dr. finally came in and broke it for me...I had to have 2 epidurals as the first one did not work. But because the second one was put in right after my water was broke...and I went from 6cm to 8.5cm in minutes...I went throught the dreaded "transition" stage of 8-10cm DRUG FREE....OUCHIE... it pretty much kicked in about 10cm...and I had about 10 minutes of relief before I had to push. I pushed 3 times through 1 contraction and he was out.  He is such a sweet little far I think he looks like Landon and a lot like Aspyn as babies...minus the blonde hair. All 3 of my others had dark hair at he got a lot of fuss over his gobs of blonde hair. I love it. I'll post more pics when I can. But here he is.

How were doing...

I haven't really been able to take any new pictures lately...Aspyn broke my camera...I can't get the lens to go back in...grrr. Today I'm 33 weeks and 4 days...Hoping to make it to 37 weeks which is about Nov 3...he can come at any time then :) Still having almost constant contractions...although they aren't really dilating me they are still really uncomfortable, add some back spasms on top of that the last few weeks and you get a pretty crappy time lol. My Dr. said at my last appointment a week 32 weeks that I was measuring 35 weeks...or he was anyways...and that he estimated him to be around boys were both 6lbs 6oz at 35 if he is really that big already I'm gonna have a big baby. Brayden & Landon are both doing very well in school right now. Brayden sometimes has a hard time ...he tells me that he wants me to check him out early before he even goes to school at least once a week. He tells me he misses his family :( aww...he is so cute. And Landy is learning to be a little more independent. He does not let me take him into school anymore he likes to do it himself. Which is fine by me...then I don't have to park and get out I just drop him off at the front door. Aspyn I think is just about ready for Kindergarten as well at 2! lol she is so super smart...(as everyone knows girls are the smarter sex) ;) She can count to 10 by herself...and recognizes those numbers by sight and sound. As well as all her colors except gray, and her shapes... all by sight and sound. She is pretty much obsessed with it. She is always pointing out colors and shapes and numbers to me everywhere we go...and if you don't repeat back to her what she said to you she will keep screaming it at you until you do. My mom calls me and her Pete and Repeat because Aspyn repeats everything I its pretty cute. I'm trying to teach her to be buddies with my niece Rheese...but so far she isn't having it lol. Usually when I hold my niece she says "Hey leave that baby alone." or "Put her down!" and Justin is just workin workin workin....all day sucks...but what can ya do. We are just grateful he has work :) I'm looking forward to the week he can take off when I have the baby. Anyways that is all for us right now. If I get any new pictures I'll post some.

25 weeks preggo today....was having contractions last night kinda freaked me out....luckily they went away finally when I went to bed. Just posting some random pics from the summer of the kids.

Aspyn likes me to wrap her up in her blanky and we call that burrito baby, this is her in her burrito in the little girl I babysit's care seat so this is what we call "Baby burrito to go".

Aspyn with her Tiara on she kept telling me it was her birthday lol.

The boys riding my moms neighbors mini-pony. It took us several tries to convince them to do it, but now they love it!

 I painted Aspyns room...its not done I have to do some more work on her name...and I think the tree is to think I might sand it off and re-do it.

 The boys working on there 4 wheeler.

 Brayden in his make shift pool....not sure how to explain the life jacket haha.
The kids at my friend Emmie's boys birthday. Aspyn loves her some chocolate cake.

Brayden decided to get into my toll paint and paint his brother-to-be's name on his brothers wall so that everyone knew it was Halens room. Lol hard to be mad at that though isn't it?

Rheese my neice and Aspyn in the baby seats...I think Aspyn is a little big for hers haha

All moved in...and now I'm OLD!

We are finally settled in. Took me about a week to unpack...and Justin about that long between work and side jobs to get everything over here. So far we love it. :) I will post pictures soon. I have taken before pics and I will take some after pics to post on here as well.
I will be 20 weeks on sunday so for me thats MORE than halfway lol. I have an appointment next wednesday to make FOR SURE for sure that its a boy ;) having lots of round ligament paints I only ever had those with Brayden. And the part where you stay hotter than normal all the time kicked it right as soon as the hot weather did. And I already hate hot weather anyways.
And tomorrow is my dreaded 29th birthday :( BLEAH!! But on the plus year I will be 25!

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

ummm baby? are you still in there?

Why do I look smaller than a week ago? haha oh well not complaining!

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Good grief....

     Not quite 4 months yet I will be next Monday...I feel really big for 17 weeks. I know with each kid you show faster but GOOD GRIEF haha. --->
Aspyn has actually come up to my belly and said HO HO HO! I've gained 5lbs so far...not sure how it's not more since EVERYTHING has gotten bigger. Not great but not horrible either. I'm trying to keep my cravings to a minimum. (yeah right) 
So far this pregnancy I have been absolutely DRAINED. My Dr. just tells me to eat more protein. I tried it doesn't work. ;)  Oh 5 hour energy how I miss thee!! I started feeling him move like 3 weeks ago not kicking but moving. Kinda cool. And just like with my other pregnancies I start feeling the braxton hicks contractions earlier and earlier. Also with each one, labor gets shorter by 2 hours Braydens was 8 hours from the time I was admitted, Landon was 6, Aspyn was 4, so that would be awesome if this one was only 2! Well as long as I get my epidural that is :) 
              Only another week and a half until we move to our new house. Kind of nervous about it. My boys are VERY destructive. Who am  I kidding so is Aspyn. ha ha. But so VERY excited to make new friends for me and the kids. There is literally NOBODY around here. We have lived here for almost 5 years and have only make friends with like 2 families.

its a......

Holy crap!!! I was totally sure it was going to be another girl. But nope the doc said he is pretty sure its a boy. Or a very deformed girl ;) either way Im DONE after this one! Sorry for the added illustrations...some people have a hard time interpreting ultrasound pics...:) I'm also 16.5 weeks so I have another appointment July 13 and he said save the theres still a small chance it could be wrong...but to me that looks pretty definate lol. And my targeted ultrasound (where they measure everything) is July 27.

new stuff...

Well not a whole lot of super exciting stuff is going on except that we are moving...IN 3 WEEKS I CAN'T FREAKING WAIT!!! And that maybe MAYBE next week we might find out what the sex of our little butter bean is! PLEASE BE A GIRL.... PLEASE BE A GIRL... PLEASE BE A GIRL!!! No just kidding I don't care either way...but a girl would make things a lot easier...(if there is anything easy about 4 kids that is). I'm not looking forward to 29...mostly because its right before 30....ewww. I'm also not looking forward to being fat and pasty all summer. But at least in our new house we will have central air instead of a swamp cooler. YAY!!

Brayden graduated form kindergarten on May 25, and Landy from pre-school May 24th. Both ceremonies where absolutely hilarious.  Brayden is just like me...ADD and all and was kind of in la la land the whole time...At least he is super cute! ;)  And JUST LIKE MY DAD. Its so funny. He is a little clone!! He is so shy at school. At his little program the teacher made them go up and say there name in the microphone and lets just say it took some coaxing, and I felt really bad for him you could tell he was sooo nervous...I don't blame him though I hate public speaking as well. But on Landons field trip to the dinosaur park, me and Justin and Aspyn went with him, and some of the kids from his class said hi to him and he wouldn't say hi back and I asked him why he wouldn't and he said "BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO!!"  So he is VERY outgoing like my dad lol.  Its so funny how shy he is yet his class pictures are hysterical...he is always pulling a face!

Brayden turned 6 in March and is growing up SOOO fast. Landy will be 5 on Thursday, and Aspyn turned 2 last month...good thing I have another little baby coming or I might be pretty depressed at this point ha ha.
We are moving to a house in Clinton, we are just tired of the Ogden scene. And as for my pregnancy...I am 100% certain without a doubt DONE after this one. I'll be surprised if my body bounces back from this one.  For some reason the older I get the more this bothers me. Oh well at least after this baby I will have a running track right behind my house I can go running. There isn't anything like that here. I love to run but don't have anywhere safe to do it other than by the dinosaur park.  Don't have any pics because I think I packed up my camera lol. Or I lost it? Anyways that is all for now.

I'm and AUNTIE!!!!

Erin had her baby on May 4th. She wasn't due until June 12. She started having contractions on the night of May 1st, and the next morning they were still going so I convinced her to go to the hospital and be checked. When we got there she was 4cm and over the next two days she spent in the hospital trying to stop her  contractions unsuccessfully, so she gave birth to Rheese Larue Whiteley (Larue after our Grandma Whiteley) on May 4th (which is also the day before her cousin Aspyn) at 3:35 pm. She was 5lbs 11oz and 18 1/2 " long. No complications at all! Which I consider to be a miracle considering she was 6 weeks early! She came home today. Which was the first time I could even see her, they wouldn't let anyone in but her and my parents in the NICU. I was going CRAZY!! But here she is...and she is SOOOOO cute!!!

2 months....

I'm sooo NOT posting a belly pic this month haha. I'll just wait until I start to show ;)...But anyways our names have changed...Boy name is now Halen Van Browning (Van Halen is Justins favorite band ) and I'm not so set on Zeplyn anymore for a girl...its not completely out...but I'm thinking maybe Willow would be better? Willow kind of goes with Aspyn right? lol Next appointment they have to do another blood draw on me...the initial antibody screen they did the first appointment showed positive for some antibodies so this next appointment on May 18 they will do another to try and figure out what I'm "fighting". My Dr. has assured us though that its nothing that could possibly harm the baby. I didn't really get to many good easter pics... Justin  was at work on Sunday so I hid the kids baskets in my room so they didn't eat all of it before I woke up...I know lazy mom haha...but hey I only get to play the preggo card one more I"m making the most of it. :)  Brayden is getting ready to graduate from kindergarten next month...and Landy from preschool. I can't believe I'll have both in school full time next year :( Aspyn is going to be TWO next thursday :( and she is quite the stinker also lately...she fights me every time I try to dress her, undress her, take her diaper off, put her diaper on, take a nap, go to bed, eat, or pretty much anything else. soon as her daddy gets home (cue the eye rolling) she turns into this sweet little angel who does everything she is told. Thanks Aspyn. Also my lil sis is getting ready to have her baby soon...I believe today she is 34 weeks preggo...she is having a little girl and naming her Rheese Larue Whiteley...Larue is our grandma Whiteley's name. Love it. :) I am actually VERY excited for my little niece to get here. I am also excited to see how Erin will do with a new baby. For anyone who knows her knows what I mean. It's kind of surreal to see her even pregnant. But I can already tell she is both going to be a very protective mama, AND that she has NO idea what she is in for...but what new mom does right? :) And now....for some totally random pictures. :)

Brayden dressing himself.
