It's a Girl!!

Hi Everyone! I am 16 weeks pregnant and found out it is a little girl! I was surprised because I haven't been sick (I wasn't with Dieter either) so I just assumed it was a boy. Well, I guess come next ultra sound they could tell us its a boy, but he was pretty confident it is a girl. I am due April 30th so that will make Dieter and baby about 23 months apart. I am very excited!

Shoes, shoes, shoes...

Dieter loves shoes. All day long he brings me my shoes then runs to the door. He thinks if I have my shoes on then we can go outside. It usually works because it is so cute when he brings me my shoes. He also likes to wear his shoes all day. You'll see in the picture below, shoes and pjs- pretty cute. Last week we went camping with Kimball's family. We went to the dam one day and the picture is of Dieter and his cousin Hayden.

So it's August-I'm not sure what we have done all summer. In July we went to Glenn Beck's American Revival. It was so good and uplifting. Other than that we haven't done much- Just enjoying being together and laughing at Dieter.

Mosquito and an Owl

My poor child got a mosquito bite 2 days ago on the forehead. When he woke up this morning his eye is almost swollen shut. Last week he got a bite on his arm and his arm was swelled for 3 days. We live in the wrong city if Dieter is going to be allergic to mosquitos.

About the owl... We have been hearing scratching in our fireplace for a week or longer and couldn't see anything in there. Kimball finally opened the fireplace from the inside so what ever was scratching could fall down, and it was a big owl! I couldn't believe how big it was. We felt bad that it had been in there for so long so at 11:00 at night Kimball called animal control and took it to some place were they will nurse it back to health. Kimball said when he got there the lady was bottle feeding a beaver. Too funny! Kimball is growing soft as he gets older because he is not opposed to shooting random animals around our house.

Yes, we are still alive.

Okay I am terrible at blogging. I try to stay away from the computer because I am easily distracted. The internet is endless and I have a hard time not spending hours looking at misc. things. I am trying to use my time more wisely but I have set a goal to be better at blogging. Dieter turned 1 on June 11. I can't believe my baby is 1. Where did this year go? Dieter is walking so good and when we play with cousins he wants to be one of the "big kids". He has done a pretty good job exploring all cupboards and bookcases in our house and loves to climb on everything. Dieter loves being outside and pointing at airplanes and birds. He absolutely loves when Kimball comes home from work. He doesn't want to leave his side (until he's tired, then he wants me). And I am very happy to say that I am officially a full time mom! My last day of work was Tuesday. I am so excited to be home. I am going to try to be very productive during the days with endless projects around our house.

Anyone out there listening are watching Glenn Beck? If you are, pretty crazy what is happening in our country. One of my favorite things to do is buy books off of Amazon (yes, I get very distracted on the website). I am really into history books lately and have bought several that Glenn Beck has talked about. I look forward to reading and educating myself about our country and history.

Well, if anyone still looks at my blog I will try to not let 2 months go by before I post again...

Here are some pictures from Dieter's b-day.

Mixed Feelings!

Dieter is 10 months old and has taken his first steps! It is so exciting but I am also not ready! Well, I guess I am ready but my house is not. I have started to get organized and this will help me organize faster.

I love that spring is here. We have planted a little orchard at our house. We have 6 apple trees, 8 peach, 1 cherry, and 1 pear. We have more room to add 2 apricot and one more pear (need to save more money first :). Several years from now we might be wondering what we were thinking! Kimball is so creative and last fall made an apple press for our already 3 full grown apple trees. The juice is so yummy. He hopes to improve is apple press by the time our 6 new trees have fruit. Me and Dieter have been spending plenty of time outside this spring. I have so much yard work to do...

Got Allergies?

We don't!! About 4 months ago I noticed Dieter showing signs of allergies (throwing up, rashes, eczema). One of our neighbors told us about a chiropractor that cleared up his daughters severe dairy allergies, so we thought we would give this chiropractor a try. We figured it couldn't hurt...
Well, Dieter has been allergic (and sensitive) to so many things; dairy, corn, yeast, soy, banana, apples, berries, detergent, chemicals, chlorine, avocado, sugar, millet, flax seed, rubber, plastic, newspaper, latex... Seriously, me and Kimball have been so surprised to the things he was allergic to. It seemed like everything he touched (or after he ate) he broke out in a terrible rash. Well, we have some good news to those of you that have allergies, Dieter is cured!!! No more rashes, eczema, throwing up. It has been such a blessing that our neighbor told us about Dr. Scott Skaggs. The treatments are easy and there wasn't any skin poking either!! I would highly recommend seeing him. And to top it off, he has fixed Kimball's seasonal allergies!! Dr. Skaggs as saved us a lot of trouble in the future. I honestly don't know what Dieter would have eaten when he got older. I would recommend him to anyone. If your interested here is his number...782-4454

A Much Needed Update

Our little bear is 8 1/2 months old now! He has 8 teeth and I hope he's done teething for a little bit. He loves to walk (we have to hold his hands). He is not crawling but has a lot more interest in walking. He loves being outside and especially watching our chickens run around the yard. I think the little guy would be content to look outside all day! I am looking forward to Spring. I have been off-track from school all month but I start back on Monday. One great thing is that I am not going back to work next school year, Yeah!!! I look forward to being home full time.
