I have spent 3 days cleaning up Andrew's closet ( I took a rest and do some other errands in between). Half of these clothes were the clothes that I was preparing for Ammon. I haven't clean up this closet since I lost Ammon. Every time I looked at this closet I am always overcome with pain and loneliness with the loss of my little angel Ammon. These clothes are so special to me and these reminded me of my Ammon. I didn't have any plan of giving them away since then. As I was cleaning up, I continue to shed tears but at the same time there was a feeling of excitement! I'm excited for the fact that his baby brother will use these clothes. Though I have wanted and was hoping for a baby girl, I know Heavenly Father's plan is perfect and He knows exactly what I need. I know he has blessed me with another baby boy not to replace Ammon, but to somehow allow me to slowly heal the pain inside. Andrew was with me the whole time I was cleaning up his closet and he is aware which clothes are his and which are his baby brother's. From time to time he would say "mommy this outfit is so cute, I'm sure baby brother would be happy to have this on".

Every Beat of My Heart


Love Teddy Frame

Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone! Hope you all had a good one. Russ and I watched a movie tonight. He let me decide which movie I wanted to watch since there's nothing that he likes. I chose to watch the "Confession Of A Shopaholic" and even though Russ is not a big fan of a "Chick-Flicks" movie, we both enjoyed it. The movie was very funny and entertaining and we had a good time together...

It's been a while since I updated my blog, and most of you maybe wondering what we've been up to. The past week has been crazy! A few doctor's appointments, but the main reason why we're having a crazy schedule because we're looking for a house to buy. It maybe a surprise for you ladies (in the ward) as I think most of you don't know that we're only renting the house we're in right now. We like the house we're in right now and so the ward but we wanted to have our own house.

End of last month after seeing his pediatrician, we were advised to take Andrew to an Allergist. He has been having
an allergic reaction to a lot of food and we want to know if his dry skin condition is related to his food allergies.

We took him to Intermountain Allery & Asthma to be seen and he had an allergy skin test. An allergy skin test is used to identify the substances that are causing your allergy symptoms. It is often performed by applying an extract of an allergen to your skin, pricking the skin to allow exposure, and then evaluating the skin's reaction.
As you can see in the picture above, he reacted to a lot of them. Andrew can't have any seafood, peanuts, some fruits and we also found out he's allergic to milk and all dairy products. He has been drinking milk all his life and he loves cheese and yogurt but the doctor asked us to stop giving him those for at least 2 months. We tried giving him soy milk, unfortunately he doesn't like it. Also we can't have any pets in the house which is good because I don't like having one :)

Last Sunday we attended Sebastien's blessing. (that big boy is only a month old)

These are my preggy friends. (From left to right) Fe- her due date is March 31, Lisha-April 9, me-June 24 and Ritchie- Jul
y 17. We love to get together and according to Russ it's from the water we all drink that's why the 4 of us are pregnant.

Last night, Russ and I decided to take a break and have a dinner outside. We went to Outback Steakhoue and tried their BLOOMIN' ONION. It was good and we actually like it.
