In all of yesterday's events, I totally forgot to give Bridget's "stats!" The little chunk weighs 12.2 lbs. which is in the 80 percentile, and she is 24 inches long which is in the 97 percentile! My parents said I was the exact same way when I was a baby. Bridget is smiling so much and making little giggle sounds, it's so cute! Jake and I are pretty sure she's going to roll over very soon. She makes it half way over and then her arm gets in the way. We're having so much fun being parents and we're so grateful for her!

A Series of Unfortunate Events (and one fortunate)

We'll begin with the good, on Sunday my grandparents braved the rainy, wet freeway just to visit us. It was really fun and so good to see them. Now for the not so good, today Bridgee had to get shots! All morning I was so nervous and trying not to cry because I had to go without Jake and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to handle her being in pain. So I was getting ready to leave when I get a text from Jake saying he had just fainted at work. Wonderful! He had been going on no sleep, no food, and no water which resulted in passing out. I was now even more of a wreck. I called my dad so he could help calm me down and then headed to the doctor's office. Much to my surprise, Bridgee did very well! She hardly cried at all! So as soon as we got home I got some Tylenol in her and lots of sleep, water, and food for Jake and now my sick little family seems to be doing better!

Great gma and gpa Forbes

Sunshine and Summer time!

We've had a fun past few days with Jake's work schedule not being so crazy so we've taken advantage of this great weather. We've been to the park, the pool, Grandma and Grandpa Sorensen's, and just had lots of fun!

From this!

From this!
Last April I had long blond hair and I could see my hip bones, and in less than 365 days I now have short dark hair and can't even see my feet let alone hip bones!

Dinosaur Bones

Dinosaur Bones
When my mom was pregnant with my little brother Ethan, she showed us the ultrasound picture and my other little brother Bennett was pretty certain it was a picture of dinosaur bones. So here she is, our cute pile of dinosaur bones!! Hopefully she's as cute in real life as she is here!

The best money we ever spent!

It's been really fun buying stuff for the baby on the way, Jake has especially had fun setting up all the new gadgets that bounce, swing, and sing! We have no room left in our tiny one room apartment but it's all worth it! I'm just hoping she really is a girl because I don't know what we'll do with all this pink stuff if she turns out to be a boy!

Diaper Cake

Diaper Cake
On February 14th my mom, grandma, and sister threw me an awesome baby shower back home in Colorado. It was kind of ironic that the same weekend last year they were throwing me a bridal shower. Anyway, my mom and sister Meredith made me the cutest diaper cake I've ever seen!!

So despite all the other wierd little things that go wrong with me, I never get sick! But for some reason when I went home to Colorado, I got the worst sinus infection I've had in so long! Being pregnant I can't take any medication so I had to resort to..well just take a look!
