My pregnancy with Brooke was so wonderfully easy. I was never sick. I wasn’t tired. I felt great!
Dallas and I got in a car accident. We were driving from Ogden to Orem in a snowstorm and slipped on the freeway. Luckily our car just had a little bumper damage and we were fine. (Well, I did break a nail, but I guess in the grand scheme of things that’s not too bad.) I was nervous about the wreck because I was pregnant, but Brooke appeared not to have been harmed by the wreck either. Thank goodness!
It’s really hard to tie a straight bow on your own clothes so I had to teach Dallas how to tie one for me. He proved himself an able student and his first bow was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen:
I was lucky enough to have three baby showers. The first one was thrown for me by the teachers I worked with. They were so kind and generous:
My second shower was thrown for me by my mother-in-law. We got some more great stuff:
My third shower was thrown for me by my family. Laurie made an adorable diaper cake:
Abe and Klarissa and my siblings acquired an old dresser and repainted it for the baby:
The inside of all the drawers held a surprise:
Everyone who helped paint the dresser signed it and made their handprints in the shape of a heart. I loved it.
I think we’re ready to have a baby!
