Grandma & Grandpa Thompson Visit!

Colby's parents came out for a long weekend!
Brixton really loves getting to see his grandparents! He just loves dumping out all his toys and showing them everything!
When they first got here Chris and I went and got a pedi & mani! Thank you Chris!! It was much needed!!
Colby and his dad got to golf on a PGA West course down in Palm Springs, then we met up with them for lunch. After lunch the guys took Brixton home and the girls got to shop!
Chris helped me with my fear of buying pregnancy clothes! haha
Not all pregnancy clothes are ugly! She bought me some very cute tops and 2 pairs of carpi's and I LOVE THEM!{I went back and got more shirts!} 
Thanks Chris for breaking me of my fear!
We did a lot while the Thompson's were out here!
We went to the drive-in and saw the new X-men!
The day before they left we went down to the Children's Museum and let Brixton loose!

One of the things they hate the most is posing for pictures!
Grandpa & Brixton
At the Museum they had so many awesome toys to play with!

Grandma & Brixton

Sometimes we even found ourselves playing with the toys! haha
There is a child in all of us!

Daddy & Brixton
Art lesson's from a pro! :)

There is something so stinking cute about a very small shopping cart and Brixton pretending his is shopping!

Mommy & Brixton
We made pizza's for everyone, just they way they liked it!!

We had such a great time with G & G Thompson!! Thanks for coming to visit us in 29 Palms!!! We love you!!!

my little stash...

Yes I'm having a boy and yes I saved most all of Brixton's baby clothes but sometimes you have to get a little something new right?
I have started a little stash for Little Brother (and yes I'll be call him that until we find a name).

This is my stash so far... a few blankets (given to me), 2 little outfits (also given to me), I bought the boppy cover (you can never have enough of those) and the stroller/carseat cover.
The little booties is something I bought from JoAnn's, you crochet on to them and they look really cute. I also made 2 crocheted 2 little hats and the little worm was something Brixton picked out. I try to get him involved when I can, but most the time he thinks the toys are for him.

Ok ok... I do feel guilty getting things for Little Brother and not for Brixton so I got him something special the other day and HE LOVES IT!

The best $20 bucks I have ever spent! It came with one train but for Christmas last year Cj and Kimber gave Brixton the BRIX and a train, so he has a full train.

He loves to watch it go round and round!
(The sticker on his head is from the Dr's Office, we had appt that day)

I had an ultrasound done today and all is well. Everything is where its suppose to be! yay!
The awesome tech I have then took a couple pictures for me and then measured the wiggly guy to make sure he looks good.
She plugged all the information in and said "oh... he is going to be a BIG baby!" He is in the 85 percentile for being 21 weeks and already weighs in at 1 lb plus a little extra!!!
So GLUP... I'm a little nervous now!
I've always heard the 2nd is bigger but if Brixton was 8lb 15oz does that mean I'm going to have a 9.5lb baby??! Yikes!
Despite being nervous, I'm so happy that he is growing so well. We'll just keep it up and maybe he'll be any early baby? Lol Hey I can dream can't I?! 
 His little foot (I like little feet pictures!) and a profile!

First day of Summer!

Brixton has developed a sudden love for painting and coloring! The only down side is I'm running out of things he can paint, I need to make a stock pile! Until then we went to the dollar store and picked up something to paint. They didn't have a great selection but he did find a bird house to paint. I was planning on getting something to paint and then going to the park, but when I put Brixton in his car seat he said "home to paint". So we went home to paint!!

 I like to give him tons of options with the colors but I have to stop giving him black. He paints with other colors then goes over it with black!

 He is really into it when he sticks his tongue out. (Just like his mama)

The awesome finished tiny bird house!! He told me "wait, paint wet mom!" So it's drying until I can touch it.

I love that I get to spend everyday with Brixton! He is so funny and he teaches me every day to be more and more patient. He is only 2 and he knows when Mommy needs a hug or needs to laugh or go outside! It just melts my heart! I love my Brixton!!!

I'm obsessed....

Now that I have caught the sewing virus, I just can't stop!!!
I bought another sewing book for my birthday, Handmade Beginnings. Super cute book the only down side is you have to trace and cut out the patterns yourself. It's kinda annoying!
I also have Little Stitches for little ones from Amy Butler and I love it!! I purchased it when I first had Brixton and today I just cut out all the patterns because I'm making a few of the things for Thompson baby boy #2!!
Yay I'm so excited to make them!!!
I don't know why I didn't figure this out sooner but I have been making Pj pants like a crazy person! I even made matching ones for Brixton and the baby!

Colby 100% hates the colors and the different color on the bum but I HEART them! They are going to look so cute being matchy!! 
I also made some that Colby would be happy with too.

This is so much fun! I have a list that keeps growing of stuff I can make instead of buy and it will be unique! Plus nothing feels better then knowing you made something yourself!!

Happy Father's Day

My favorite...

 Two of the cutest guys I know!

For Father's Day I had Brixton paint a boat and a car and I got a shirt with Colby's name put on it. It's kinda only funny to us.

Oh Brixton loves painting things! He loves getting all messy then he starts painting the table and his highchair! I did have to help him with the boat and car because he only painted 1/2 of them.

And this is the shirt I had made for Colby. ;)
I don't know if he'll ever wear it again but he looks really good in it!! 

For Father's Day we went down to Palm Springs Air Museum! Brixton loves to see the planes and run under them!!
Outside models

Leaning back looking at the plane saying "whoaa" because they are so BIG!!
We had a great time at the Air Museum! Brixton loves spending time with his daddy!
Colby, you are the world's greatest Dad! We hope you had a wonderful Father's Day! We love you so much!!

Brix sporting the shirt my in-laws sent!!
He is such a hamm!!!

I would also like to tell my Dad and my Father in-law Happy Father's Day. I know they don't normally read my blog, but we are so lucky to have them in our lives!! We are so grateful for you and we love you so much!!!

Almost there...

Wow 20 weeks already, I'm feeling the baby kick and move around a lot more. I have an ultrasound next week, to make sure that my placenta is moving out of the way. I guess it's a normal thing for it not to move at first but if it doesn't move the right way then there are complications. So hopefully everything goes well!

 The app on my phone told me to go out and celebrate for making it to my 1/2 way mark! So I thought about and I think a pedicure would be nice, but I'm going to wait until next week. My in-laws are coming down and my mother in-law and I can go get one while the boys golf!

Play date with the Patterson's

Last week Brixton and I went to Joshua Park again!! We love it! This time we went with our friends the Patterson's, Brixton loves Shane(4yr) and Shane is so good with Brixton! They are great dinosaur friends!

Brixton was so excited to be at the park this time! He wasn't listen and he was climbing too high and too fast for me to catch him. I was so worried he was going to fall off a rock or land on a cactus. They have all kinds out here!

We did have a lot of fun, but it was kinda hard for 2 pregnant women to control 3 little kids and stay cool! 

Shane, Jordan, Brixton
All 3 off in different directions!

Joshua Tree National Park

2 weeks ago, Colby, Brixton and I went hiking in Joshua Park! It was awesome! Brix was a little nervous at first, the rocks are really big and if you fall on them, they are very unforgiving! Once he got warmed up, we couldn't slow him down. He was chasing lizards up and under rocks, climbing up rocks and trying to run down the other side. It was great weather for hiking! We had a lot of fun!
Brixton was showing us he could run really fast between the 2 rocks!
Like father like son.
Enjoying the sun and the view. He would climb to the top of the rocks and say "Im big" and lift his arms up!
Brixton and Momma!
Leaving the Park, if you follow this road (named Utah Trail) until you get to the green clumps that is where our house is and you can see the city of 29 to the left and the base tucked up against the mountains.

3 and a baby!

Yes Colby and I are having a baby! AHHHH!
If you missed Brixton's 2nd Birthday Party that's why you didn't know. We thought we would tell as many people as we could and have them do the rest.  
I'm a little nervous, it's kinda scary to think of having 2 kids. But then I think of people who are having their 5th or 6th child and I think ok I can do this!
First ultrasound.
Everything is looking good. I still have about 4.5 months to go.

13 weeks & the tech was sure she knew what it was then!

Little Heart Beat!

Anatomy Ultrasound
The top is his foot and then 2 profiles!
Yes I said "his", we are having another little rough and tough BOY!!!
I'm loving the Dr. I am going to. They are great to me & Brixton when he has to come along.
With Brixton I had only one ultrasound done by the Naval Hospital, my whole pregnancy. Every time I go to an appt now, they give me more ultrasound pictures to take home!!

May recap...

If we ever own a house, Shelbi is going to be my gardener!

Brixton, Grimm and I traveled to Utah a few days earlier then we had planned because my Grandma Hatfield was going to have surgery on an aneurysm the Dr's found behind her eye. It was a slow recovery and she is a little sassy when she doesn't feel good. So getting her to eat when she didn't want to was a little tough. But she did great! Everyone was there in the ICU waiting room everyday until she was moved to a different room, where we could visit more often. I was so happy to have her come home and I know everyone else was too. I think Brixton was the most excited!! He hated going to the hospital and having to play in the waiting room. Grandma Hatfield is doing great, she got her staples out and blood tests look good! I came back to 29 Palms but I try to call everyday just to see how she is doing. I'm so grateful for my awesome family, I'm very blessed and spoiled! I love you guys!

To keep Brixton busy while we were home, I got him some new kicks!  

Took the Rhino out and got it a little muddy.

Got new sunglasses!

Who's your superman?

For all of you that are freaking out, I cropped it and you can't see Shelbi right there with him! No worries. 

Celebrating my 25th birthday! GLUP!!

We had such a great weekend in Palm Springs! Thanks Mom and Dad! Also thanks Shelbi and Allie for coming out and having fun with us. I know everyone wanted to come but sometimes things don't work out! Next time for sure!
I loved spending time up in Utah and getting to see everyone! I even got to see Jamie!! My long lost cousin ;), she was in for Mother's Day and stayed an extra few days! Fingers crossed that one day we will live close to our families!!
We love you all!!!
