14 weeks and counting

So I am 14 weeks now and still am feeling horrible. I keep thinking maybe this is the last week. Now I am officially in my second trimester and thought it would be over by now, but nope. Haribo continues to make me feel so sick. Maybe by 16 weeks?

Oh, and don't forget to take the poll on the right side of my blog to guess whether you think Haribo is blue or pink? I am just curious.

Introducing Haribo

And now the reason for my lack of blogging or even commenting for that matter. Introducing, who I call Haribo........................................................

Seriously, doesn't it look like a Haribo gummy bear?! I am 12 weeks along and have been oh so sick! This is definitely the sickest I have been with any of my pregnancies. I feel like death and can barely function. Lately some days have gotten better, but not much. I am so sick and tired and sick and tired of being sick and tired. I am due November 24th. Is it December yet? The house shows my lack of energy and it is getting to us all. Please send good vibes that this part will end soon.

The kids are super excited (although I am not sure how Max will feel him/her). They both really want a girl but say they'll take either. That's really the only option they have. :o) So I am pretty nervous about having 4 but also very excited at the same time. I hope I am up for the challenge because a challenge I am sure it will be. So for now, I am drinking Slurpees and any other ice cold drink I can find and am hoping the queasiness goes away REAL soon!

Colin's Big Day

Now on April 30th we celebrated both Colin and Spencer's birthday by going out to Red Robin, but since we had an extra special weekend coming up we didn't do anything else, so no pictures. But on May 2nd, Colin got baptized! He was SO excited and had been talking about it for weeks. I am so proud of him and the decision he has made. My favorite part was when he was done being confirmed, he sat down with a HUGE grin on his face and whispered to me "Do I have the Holy Ghost now?" So sweet!! He is such a good example to all those around him and we couldn't be prouder and happier for him!

Max was realy into showing us his tummy that day, not sure why.

Colin was so excited, it is so cute to see it on his face.

Max tried to get a pic of his tummy again, but I tricked him. :o)

My Little Bug Turns 2!

On April 26th, Max Hudson Watkins turned 2 years old! I think he loved the fact that he got more than one balloon and we were all paying attention to him! I think he would give the day 2 thumbs up, well except for the party hat wearing time, but other than that, he loved it!

He was NOT liking those party hats AT ALL!

Notice the tears still on his shirt from the party hat incident.
But cupcake redeems it all. Love the little Charlie Chaplin he's got going on!
Happy Birthday Bug!

Easter 2009

Easter was pretty low key around here, but the kids had a great time! Max was REALLY good at finding the eggs the Easter Bunny hid, especially the hard to find ones. He would point and I would lift him up to get it. It was a nice day to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ!

Field Trips

Ok, time to play catch up! I know it has been WAY too long, but there are reasons to which I will get to in a later post. So back in March and April, I got the chance to go on a field trip with both Colin and Ally. It was so nice to get to spend some almost one on one time with them. Here are some fun pics. Ally got to go to the Seattle Children's Museum and Colin to Woodland Park Zoo. Unfortunately it was raining on Colin's trip and since it was outside I didn't get a lot of pictures.
