Friends Christmas Party....

Last week all the girls got together for our friends Christmas party. It was so much fun to see everyone especially Melaine and Michelle who were in town for Christmas. We ate really good dessert, watched our Senior video and laughed about so many funny memories we all had together. I am so grateful to have such a good group of friends!!!


More pictures of Addison...

Here are just a few more pictures of Addison from the hospital. We have TONS more but will post them later. She has been such a good baby so far and LOVES to eat! We are having so much fun with her and are enjoying our first day at home.


Addison Anne Crockett

She's here!!! Addison was born this morning at 4:20 a.m. She weighs 7 lbs 2 oz and is 20 1/4 inches long. Annie, Brando, and Addison are all doing great. The labor and delivery went perfect. Addison of course is absolutely beautiful!


Still nothing....

I went to the Doctor again today hoping something had changed and nothing has! I am still not dilated and basically all the way efaced. I am going in again next Wednesday to see if anything has changed. If nothing has I will go Friday night and they will give me a pill to help start me then will induce me Saturday morning (the 20th). My cervix is tipped so in order for me to go into labor on my own I will have to get some really strong contractions. Basically he told me he is planning on seeing me at my next appointment. Even though I know I will have her within 11 days I am so done being pregnant and just want her here! If anyone has any suggestions on things that might help get me dilated let me know. I am willing to try anything at this point!


Baby update....

Today we had another Doctors appointment and not too much has changed since last week. I am still not dilated but I am about 80-90% efaced. I am planning on going over my due date which I'm not too excited about but I guess I have no control over when she decides to come! He said if I have not had her by my next visit then we will set up a date to induce me. I really hope she comes on her own otherwise it's looking like I will be induced the 19th or 20th. That seems so far away and too close to Christmas but we will see how it all plays out!


Baby shower with friends

Last Saturday my friends threw me a baby shower. It was so much fun to see all the girls and catch up with everyone. Mary Eden was even in town and able to come! I got so many cute outfits and things that I will need for Addison. I can't believe she is almost here! Thanks again everyone for coming and thank you Ashlee, Sara & Ashlee for throwing such a fun shower!!!

All the girls...High School Friends
Sienna & Graham

Sienna loved Addison's tub. I think she thought it was for her!


Annual Halloween Party

This year the annual Halloween party turned out great! Brando and I went as Juno & Bleeker it was quite the easy costume to put together (thanks Jordan for the idea)! We had a hypnotist come and everyone who was hypnotized was hilarious! Thanks everyone for coming. We can't wait til next year!

Graham, Tessa & Tayci

Tessa & Graham were quite worn out by the end of the night!


Dinner with the girls

A couple weeks ago Melanie was in town so a few of the girls got together and went to dinner. It's always so much fun to see all the girls because with everyones busy schedules we never find time to do it. Sara was even able to make it and had cute baby Graham the next day! It was such a fun night and hopefully next time all the girls will be able to come!


Fall pictures at Sugar House park....

For those of you that don't know my mom is a professional photographer. She and her partner Sy Snarr have decided to do some "mini" family sessions at Sugar House park the week of October 13th. Anyone who needs a fall family picture this is a great deal! The session is 15 minutes and is $45. With that you get an 8x10 retouched picture and can order any others you would like. They have already started booking families so if this is something you are interested in contact me or you can e-mail my mom at whitneyphotography@mac.com . This would be a great time to get your Christmas cards done and gifts for your family for Christmas!


Tessa Ann Whitney

She is finally here!!! Tessa Ann Whitney was born Sunday morning at 7:02 a.m. and weighs 6 pounds 8 oz. She is absolutely beautiful!!! Nate and Megan are already such amazing parents. Being around a newborn makes me so excited for our little Addison to get here in December! Only a few more months and this will be us! I'm so excited I can't wait! Congrats again Nate and Megan!!!


Megan's baby shower

A couple weeks ago we threw a baby shower for my sister-in-law Megan. It was so much fun and she got lots of good stuff for little baby Tessa. I can't believe she will be here so soon! Megan and Nate are going to be such good parents and I am so excited for them! Here are just a few pictures from that night....

all the pregnant girls Megan, Abby & I.

4th of July weekend...

This last weekend my whole family went up to our condo in Eden to celebrate the 4th of July. That morning we went to Liberty Park where they put on a big breakfast then watched the parade. When the parade is over they have lots of events that both kids and adults can enter. This is all of us watching mutton busting. For those of you (like me) who have never heard of this it's where they put a little kid on a sheeps back and see how long they can hold on before falling off. It really was so funny to watch all the kids compete!

Sophia loved the fireworks as well me, Megan, Ella & Natalie. Ella's face in this picture makes me laugh because she was in such a good mood, I just don't think she was in the mood to smile!


It's a.......


It's official we are having a little girl! I am so excited and still so shocked because I was for sure it was a boy. It took us awhile before she would finally give us a good shot and for a minute I was worried we were going to have to go back another day to find out what we were having. It was so good to see that she had all her fingers and toes and everything else is developing right on track. I am so excited and can't wait for our little girl to get here in December!!!


Baby update...

Yesterday Brando and I went to my 14 week Dr. appointment and it went so good! Everything is right on track and we got to hear our babies heartbeat for the 2nd time! The heart rate was at 160 so according to old wives tales that would mean it's a girl. My Dr. said he is wrong about 50% of the time so I guess it will be another 10 days before I find out! I could go earlier but for some reason the closer I get to finding out what I'm having the more nervous I am! Who knows why because for the past 2 months I have been counting down the days. Maybe it will pass once the day gets here. I still feel like I am for sure having a boy but my mom is convinced it's a girl because I have been so sick. Any predictions on what I am having???


Sara Jane's baby shower

Last week all our friends got together for Sara Jane's baby shower. It was so much fun to see all the girls and catch up on what everyone is up to. I feel like we are all so busy and we never get together. Hopefully we can do a girls night or something before the next shower!

Pee pee tee pee's best thing ever! I will
for sure be buying myself some if we have a boy!


Bella's going to be a big sister...

Yes you guessed it right I'm pregnant!!! I thought that since this is how we told our families I would put the picture on my blog. As you can tell Bella hated this shirt and was so happy when we took it off. Everyone keeps asking me the same questions so I will answer all the ones we have been asked.

How far along are you?
12 weeks and 2 days

When is your due date?
December 12th

Were you trying?
No, this was actually a big surprise to us. At first I cried because I didn't know what to think but now I am really excited and can't wait for Christmas this year!

Have you been sick?
Yes! I have been SO..... sick it is horrible! Everyone said once I hit 14 weeks I will start feeling better so I really hope that is the case for me!

Do you have names picked out?
Yes, we have names picked for both a boy and a girl

When do you find out what your having?
June 27th! Kind of crazy I never thought I would be pregnant and finding out what I was having on my one year anniversary!

Do you guys want a boy or girl first?
Brando like all guys wants a boy first so all our kids can have a big brother. I will be happy either way but I do think I am having a boy first. I guess we will find out in about 4 weeks!


Florida here we come!!!

We leave for Florida on Tuesday morning and seriously I can't wait! I need to be in the sun so bad! The weather here has been driving me crazy! My aunt and uncle live there and every spring for the last 5 or so years we try and take a trip out so we can go visit them and also go to the TPC. I am a little bummed that Tiger is not going to be there this year but oh well there is always next year! It's going to be so fun this because my entire family is going so it will be a full house! I will post pictures once we get back!

This is the newly remodeled clubhouse at the TPC. Isn't it amazing?!
