Coach Parker

Parker was recently hired to coach the JV girls basketball team at South Fremont high school. He really enjoyed coaching the boys in Arizona but, he LOVES coaching these girls! The team is 3-0 and going strong. Every game I get to watch the girls show vast improvement from the game before. They really seem to enjoy Parker and in return, Parker feels like he has 6 younger sisters. Parker always has great things to say about these girls after games and practice and the more I get to know them, the more attached to them I get.

Colton has made LOTS of new friends because of the basketball season. The varsity girls sit and watch the first half of the JV game before going and getting prepped for their own game. They really seem to love Colton which is nice for me because I actually get to watch a whole half of Parkers game while they play with him! They all let Colton listen to their iPod's and then giggle while he dances to the music. I love that they love Colton..... and my back likes that he doesn't have to sit on my lap for the whole game!

Do you like that Colton is completely surrounded by girls?!?! And no, as much as I wish that was Shelly sitting there with her mouth wide open, it isn't!

The first big snow!

It snowed about 5 inches yesterday during church! Colton was staring out the window and constantly pointing to the snow so we took him outside. He had lots of fun until he face planted. Here is a cute picture and a video of him running around. If you listen close to the video you will hear him say his new favorite phrase "Go, go!"

35 Week Appointment

I went in for my OB appointment and everything is going perfectly. The doctor told me that I am measuring two weeks ahead of schedule! The last appointment I had, I was measuring one week ahead and in two weeks, I have jumped to two full weeks. I have also started to have consistent braxton hicks so I am a little nervous this kid is going to be making an early appearance. The doctor didn't seem to be concerned, he just told me to be prepared on having a big baby! My next appointment is in two weeks..... I will be interested to see if I am still measuring this big.

Colton LOVES the Cats

Colton has been trying to snuggle with the cats lately...... however, the cats don't want to snuggle with him. He has been settling for giving them hugs, or just laying right on top of them. I'm just glad the cats tolerate getting every last bit of breath squeezed out of their body.
