Bits and Pieces

I don't know for sure what's going on...I think I have fallen off the blogging wagon. Just haven't had much motivation for it lately. Hope it's not a permanent thing, I just start feeling like I could be doing a million other things, but thinking this is the only "journaling" I do these days keeps the hope alive :) So here are some bits and pieces of what's been happening lately.


Brevin LOVES feeling the baby kick these days, and it makes me sooooooooo happy. I just wish I could get them excited about this whole baby thing, and it's coming along. This baby is MEAN and I mean MEAN! It kicks me so stinking hard I sometimes just watch and wait for it to bust through my skin. But Brevin thinks it's hilarious and get the hugest smile when he gets walloped. Their latest thing is to put their little frogs and dinosaurs on my belly and watch the baby knock them off. It's so fun.

We went to Boise this past weekend to watch Girl's State Bball. It was soooooooo nice there...talk about spring fever. Anyway we went shopping after we were looking for "coming home from the hospital outfits." I automatically went to the boy section over and over in each store. Bryson laughed that I couldn't get myself to buy anything pink. So...

My good friend Kelsie was here getting pictures done last week, and we were talking about what the baby is going to be. She told me that I needed to ask her dad. He has 18 grandchildren and knew what each one was ahead of time. So I saw him last Saturday and asked what he thought...without hesitation he said "GIRL!" I started laughing...maybe a little bit of that nervous laugh and asked how he could tell...he said that he just can. So when we walked out Bryson said, "You better buy some girl stuff!"

Oh, and if it is a girl (and it wont be)...Kesler insists that her name will be Shark!

Some of my latest cravings. Raisin Bran...seriously, I can't get enough of it. I crave it constantly. And fig newtons...only the raspberry ones though. The only problem is I am the only person who eats them at this household...so I am always aware of exactly how much I ate :(

Kesler told us the other day that his favorite songs are "All the Single Ladies" and "Chasing Penguins." Now while incredibly comical I knew what he meant by the first one, but couldn't figure out the second. And then came epiphany..."Chasing Penguins" was actually "Chasing Pavements" by Adele. I nearly wet myself when he started singing it with the substitution.

After Brevin's first bball game we've been working on him being more aggressive on the court, and I think it's working. He has been playing really well. Last game he scored 6 points (enough to fulfill the Cold Stone promise his dad bribed him with) and is getting much more comfortable on the court. I said to Bryson, "You know it's like you're Clark Kent every day and then you zip on your Supermman costume to go onto the court...you gotta figure out how to get our kid to do the same!"

The most hilarious thing, though, the ref had Brevin do a jump ball. There just happened to be an opponent that was in his height range and the little fellas did the jumping...hilarious. Oh, and Brevin won the jump ball :)

So here are some February favorites...

When I had my first girl, it was seriously the weirdest feeling to actually be able go into the "pink section" at the stores and buy something. You get used to it though!!
