Photo Shoot

So I had a couple in my ward that just had a new baby ask if I would take their family pictures. I was flattered but pretty nervous about doing it. I am NOT a photographer. The only photos I have really done is of Kaiya in my dresses, haha. Anyways here are a few of my favorites.

Were having a ....

So today we got to go in for a ultrasound. It wasn't at a medical place so they couldn't give me any updates on the complications I have been having. BUT we didn't get to take a look at our sweet little one. The tech was AWESOME and took so much time with us. In the end she had printed 13 pictures for us and even gave Kaiya a copy of the last one I posted. It was cute the tech told Kaiya look that's your baby sister and Kaiya said "oh that's great!" She was so excited about her. She keeps asking me now if she can hold a picture of her little sister Alaina. Which by the way is going to be her name Alaina Rose Shurtleff. We were so happy she was a girl. Of course I would take any healthy baby, but we really wanted a little sister for Kaiya. We also had NO boy names that we liked haha. So here are the pictures, make sure you check out the last one it's my favorite.

Still sucking on that thumb!

At the end of our ultrasound she said she was going to try and see if she could get her to waive by to Kaiya. When she did she got this awesome picture of Alaina's Hand.

checking in with baby # 2

So I had my first appointment today at the specialist. It was actually a pretty quick appointment full of ups and downs.

So they did an ultrasound and baby was sooo cute. Great Heart beat 154 and was moving around kept rubbing it's nose with it's hand and then settled on sucking on its thumb. They measured the back of the neck. We didn't want to do any of the genetic testing but she said its standard for them to measure it either way. Said it measured at 1.6 which was perfect. She said my placenta wasn't as low as the other tech had made it sound and that has my uterus grows it would be even further from my cervix.

Now to the bad news She said that I have a spot on my placenta that is bleeding. She said that is what my spotting was from last month and that they will have to keep an eye on it. She said to not google it, and to pretty much not google while pregnant. She said it can cause preterm labor. But it can be a common problem and they would watch it. Also she said they found a cyst on one of my ovaries. That it is small but another thing for them to keep their eye on. She also said I have a pretty good chance of getting Cholostasis again and they will watch for that. Oh and she isn't sure what caused my hemorrhaging after I had Kaiya so they will be watching for that. Why can't I just have a normal uneventful pregnancy.

I asked about finding out the sex. She said It was too early, by my last period date I am 13 weeks 1 day ultrasound measured 12 weeks 5 days. She said the earliest they check is 14 weeks. So I just barely missed it But I have an ultrasound at another place on the 21st so 2 weeks. Then I have a normal ob appointment on march 3rd and then my anatomy scan on the 14th of March.

My Silly Kaiya

I just can't get over how much my sweet little girl is growing up. She talks NON STOP, I have no idea where she gets that from...haha. Here are a few funny things she has said lately.

One day we were laying on the couch and I said "Kaiya did you know Mommy has a baby in her tummy" Kaiya's response " A baby in your tummy, man that's tricky" Then she proceeded to lift up shirt and said " I just have a belly button"

another time she asked me for a drink, I told her to give me a minute her response " Mom remember Parents kind and dear" Its a line from a church song she LOVES to sing.

Today Kaiya went to the Dr to get her Flu vaccine. They did a spray up her nose. So I told her we were going to go get her boogers checked. Once we got to the Dr's office and realized where we were she said she didn't need her boogers checked anymore. After they gave her the spray, she turned and said " Hey mom my boogers are all better now" She was such a sweetie about it all.

Oh and she started calling people dude ( thanks to the turtles on Nemo) She says see ya later Mom dude and then just giggles. She is such a sweet little girl.

But she has hit those good ole Terrible Two's. She is constantly try to push her limits.

She is also gotten into a baby phase. She just Loves playing with her dolls and has to take them every where. It is so cute to see and gets me even more excited to see what a cute big sister she will be.

There is so much more I can say but on to the pictures.

Kaiya said she needed her Jacket on and Rain boots. I guess Pants just aren't that important.

Finger Painting Naked.. She had panties on but said that she didn't want to get paint on them :)
