I went in to the doctor today and was hoping that he would just tell me to walk on over to the hospital and have the baby. But no I have only dialated to a 2 1/2 and am still about 80% effaced. I have been having a hard time sleeping at night, waking up with contractions. I thought that I was going into labor on Wednesday night, but they stopped after about an hour. Then the past few days I have been feeling an incredible amount of pressure in my stomach and can't really walk around very well anymore. So its safe to say that I am officially ready to have this baby. When I went into my appt. the doctor stripped my membranes and said it would do it again more aggressively at my next appt. So my next appt is on Tuesday and I am hoping that I will just go into labor that night or hopefully tonight =) Its going to be a long couple of weeks if I have dont have the baby until Oct 6.

Garrison turns 2 today! We are having an Elmo party for him, everything is wrapped in Elmo paper and we have all the plates and decorations and a cookie monster/Elmo cake.
I can't believe how fast my little guy has grown up! He is an amazing child. He is seriously just awesome, so smart and for the most part obedient =) He can almost count to ten, depends on what he is doing. He counts for lots of things. Sometimes when he wants to take a bite out of food he will say, "1...2....3...bite!!!! Other times he will start with 4 and count to 10. Sometimes he misses 7 and 9. He knows his alphabet all uppercase. I have tried working with him on the lower case, he knows a few but I think he wonders why there are 2 a's =) He also knows his colors, red, green, blue, orange, yellow. One day he sat down at the piano started playing and was saying the alphabet at the same time. Then he started counting. One day during a prayer he said a whole sentence on his own. "Please bless me to sleep well." Dallin and I were shocked!!! He only did it once but we just keep expecting him to do it again. =) I love this boy with all my heart. He is so creative and loves to spend time with his family. He loves looking out the window in his room and watching the birds and animals and just loves to watch what is going on. He will stay in his bed until we come and get him out, which is amazing. I am so grateful for him and I am excited to see what he keeps learning, discovering and teaching us. Happy 2nd Birthday Garrison!
It was so nice to go swimming. Brent and JoAnne let us have the party at their house. Garrison loved it, they have a swing, pool and sandbox! It was the perfect place, Garrison had so much fun! Being 9 months pregnant, swimming felt amazing! I didn't want to get out!
