We love our little girl!

I've been trying to capture moment's of Ever before she grows up on us. This is one of my favorites. She is a really good baby and we are glad she is here with us. Can you tell that I am a "proud" mom!

Easton got a hair cut!!

Easton has been growing out his hair since July 2008. He decided it was too much maintenance and wanted to cut it off. He sure had a lot of fun growing it out. He loved to shake it and make it swoosh on his head. He liked being the "rebel" in the neighborhood. What a cute kid.

What a cute bunch of Kids!

I tried to do a photo shoot with the kids. It's not the greatest, but it does capture the moment. These kids sure love their baby sister!

Hungry Baby!

Here is Ever ready to eat. I just love the baby noises. Poor thing, she has to put up with us laughing at her and enjoying her reactions. Her hands are always so delicious. She is officially 2 weeks old! We are already sad about that. She started looking at us today and coo-ed. It was very special.

Ever Ray Anderson

"Ever Ray Anderson"
Born: April 2, 2009
4:45 p.m. American Fork Hospital
Weight: 8 lbs. 2 oz.
Length: 18 inches
Kathy started induced labor at 3:00 p.m. and had baby all natural by 4:45 p.m.!
We are so excited to have our baby here. My morning sickness is gone, and we are now adventuring into sleep deprivation. It's all worth it. The kids can't get enough of their little Sister. We all find her very entertaining and fun. Easton wanted to know why people want to come see the baby at our home. I told him, "it is the closest we can feel to heaven and everyone wants a little bit of it". She is heaven sent. We can't wait to share her with all of you.

Happy Birthday Kaiya! #5

Happy Birthday Kaiya! Big 5! Kaiya is officially registered for Kindergarten for the fall school season 2009. She is now in Pre-school on Tues./Thurs. and loves her teachers. Kaiya LOVES to play with her friends. There is rarely a day that goes by that we don't have another little girl in our home playing "girly" things with Kaiya. A little sister is going to be good for her. She loves "make-up, glittery things on her shirts, the color pink, little pet shops, stuffed animals with baby bottles, and princess movies". She sure is a lot of fun. We love you Kaiya. Mom & Dad.

Pretty in "pink" hair extensions! We gave these to all of her friends as party favors.

Painting bird houses! A very fun & artistic craft.

Tracing Kaiya so we can decorate her "profile" . The girls loved coloring and putting stickers on this picture layout of Kaiya. Super fun and easy. Thanks for the help Dad!

"Kiss the FROG!" He might turn into a Prince with all of these cute Princesses around.

Opening gifts! She made a haul!

Oh Baby, Baby!

It's finally March! I am now officially 34 weeks along (8 months). There are only 35 more days to go! This pregnancy has been a long haul, but we are excited to see and hold the end results. Our baby is now the size of a cantaloupe and weighs about 4 & 3/4 lbs. It is said that the baby can gain up to 1 lb a week. Our past experience with our babies has always been 9 lbs. I can only imagine what my stomach is going to do in the next 4 weeks. I am proud to say that I have made it to the gym for the past 5 weeks. Cardio on Mon., body conditioning on Wed., and Kick boxing on Fri.. I still suffer from morning sickness, but it is now late afternoon/evening sickness. It's quite the work-out routine to turn from one side to the other while laying in bed. We have officially set up the crib and changing table. My friends are going to be throwing me and another girl who is expecting at the same time a double shower. The supply boost is needed and I am so grateful. I have forgotten what it takes to raise a baby. We just wanted to update you all, because we could be having a baby any day now! Check out our beautiful "winter" weather (50* today).
