Grandma Candy comes to visit

My mom decided to make a trip to Fort Stewart to visit! We were so excited, She was here from March 20-30! The first week she was here we all just hung out, went shopping and enjoyed each others company! We spent the weekend doing photo shoots for military families!Which meant with every shoot she did we got to do one of Anderson too! My mom is amazing! Then Steve went into the field for the week, So it was just the three of us! We went shopping, to doctors appointments, to eat, and to the zoo! Anderson LOVED the zoo, we got to go at his pace and just do what he wanted to do. While Steve was in the field, we met him downtown for the ultrasound to find out the gender of this baby! And the news is in.......We are so excited to be having a GIRL! So of course we immediately went shopping to buy little Millie some clothes and shoes! Then the next day we made a trip to the store to buy stuff to make headbands! Man is this girl going to be in style! We had so much fun with my mom! I was sad to drop her off at the airport to go home!

After feeling really tired....

Well I had been feeling exhausted for so long that my mom talked me into going into the doctor to get checked out! They did every blood test imaginable. I think they did 14, now that is a lot of blood! They tested my B12 levels, my thyroid, and many many others! At the last minute she decided to throw in a pregnancy test as well! I thought nothing of this, and just went on with my day! Hoping they could find something! Well the next day I received a call from the hospital, and the guy on the phone proceeded to tell me that I was pregnant, and I needed to make an apt for the following week! I was in complete shock and didn't believe him! So I took 2 pregnancy tests at home on my own! Yup sure enough we were going to be having another baby! We are so excited we cant wait! Baby is due August 18!

Myrtle Beach

My Parents, Madison, and Matt decided to make a trip to Myrtle beach! So Anderson and I joined them. Since Matt served his mission there he knew exactly what to do! We spent the week enjoying every minute! We went swimming, mini golfing, shopping, getting massages, We even went to a pirate show, Anderson LOVED it!!! The best part of the entire trip was when we rented Segways, and learned how to drive them! They were a little difficult but I felt like I had it under control! So off Madison, Matt and I went!! Well just when I thought I was good to go, I drove the Segway into the pond! Yes you read that right, the whole thing went under water! We were laughing so hard that Matt couldn't help me pull it out of the water! Oh my gosh I about died!!! He finally stopped laughing long enough to pull it out of the pond, and there was seaweed attached to the front, and water pouring out of every pocket! I was so embarrassed I couldn't even tell the guy what happened!


For Halloween this year we couldn't make it to Utah for the Halloween party:( So instead we decided to take Anders to the Not So Scary Halloween Party at Disney World! He wasn't as into it as much as I would have liked;) We went on a few rides, trick or treated, watched fireworks, and the parade! Then the following day we went to sea world! Active Duty military gets one free day a year! Anderson was in HEAVEN! He loved all of the shows! I can't wait to take him back again! The other days we were there we just hung out at the hotel , went swimming, and enjoyed Downtown Disney! We had a BLAST!

Anderson turns 1

On Anderson's birthday we decided to take him to the treehouse to play!! He loved it there, he loves all the balls and the tunnels, his friend Caden joined us. AFter about an hour we decided to go to McDonalds for a happy meal! He was in Heaven!
Later that night we opened gifts, Anderson got a ball pit and and trampoline, nothing could make him happier! He also Loved his cake!!!
