Boys boys boys.

Remember the post a while back with the three pregnant gals?
Well, these are the husbands.
So proud of their tummies too.

Also, here's a recent picture of Jr.'s head.
They said his head is down, and that he has hair! Yay!

When will this little guy come? (Okay, does he really look that little?)

Viva Las Vegas!

We spent a week in Las Vegas on a business trip,
leaving Monday morning and driving back to Utah on Friday.
It was lots of fun-- we got to stay at the Wynn, all expenses paid,
and see an amazing acrobatic show by Cirque du Soleil ("Ka") for free.

Here are some photos. I think they speak for themselves.

What a guilty look.

(It's actually too bad we don't gamble. We could have been rich by now!!)

But of all the buildings, lights, and shiny things, this was the best view to be found in Las Vegas:

One month left!

As this little baby wiggles around inside, I am so grateful that he's moving. And when he has the hiccups -- I picture this tiny little baby with the hiccups, and it makes me smile.

I think about holding him; I think about his warm little body all sleepy and snuggled in my arms. I think about how his cheeks will be rosy and soft and how I will want to give him lots of kisses.

I think about him calling me "Mommy" when he learns how to talk. I think about him coming to me, crying, when he scrapes his knee. I think about him dressed in a little white shirt and tie, running out of Primary with a picture of Jesus he has colored. I think about him shrieking with delight as his daddy chases him around the room to catch him and tickle him.

I wonder what he'll look like. I wonder what he'll be like. Will he be loud? Rambunctious? Quiet? Inquisitive? Will he cherish the same things we do? Will he be respectful and studious when he is older? Will he be kind? Will he be hard to handle? Rebellious? Will I cry when he decides to disobey?

I wonder if we will be able to keep him safe from harm. What if something happens to him?

Will we teach him everything he needs to know?

All these thoughts go through my head as I wait for our little firstborn baby to come. Whoever or however he is, I'm going to love him with all my heart.

Happy 7th Birthday, Josh!

ThunderCats, hoooo!

Josh made and decorated this awesome cake.
This is Liono, the dashing ThunderCats hero.

Josh got lots of presents just right for his age,
and now has a bow and arrows,
a Transformers toy,
and much, much more.

We played pin-the-tail-on-the-Snarf,
guess-how-many-Lion-O's-in the-jar (well, life-savers actually), guess-what-cartoon-character-you-are
and had a coloring contest and prizes!

We had a big turnout, and it was lots of fun.
Thank you to everyone who came!!

And here is a video of Emma (practically niece) and Leah (niece)
singing happy birthday to Josh the day after.

See you on Josh's 8th birthday in 2012!!
