"Hey you! Move!"

Last night Berkeley felt the baby move for the first time. For the last two nights I have been making him put his hand on my stomach, but nothing would happen. The minute he would put his hand on, the baby would stop moving and not start again. Last night this was happening again, so Berkeley leaned down close to my stomach and loudly said, "HEY YOU! MOVE!" Almost instantly, Asa gave him a real good kick right where his hand was. I am sure it was coincidental but it was so funny! Tomorrow we are going in for another ultrasound so they can get more pictures of the baby's face and heart. Hopefully all goes well!

Don't Stop Stalking!

I know my blog has been so lame lately. I have a reason! I lost the cord that connects my camera to the computer so I can't upload any pictures! I have a bunch of stuff just waiting to be blogged about, but first I have to find that cord. Don't give up on me. Keep blog-stalking. I won't continue to disappoint you.

Good Luck Douglas!!

My brother-in-law went to the MTC today to begin his mission! He is going to serve in Albuquerque, New Mexico and will be speaking Spanish. We love Doug and we are going to miss him so much!

This is Doug with Lacey Essig Here he is opening the mission call!
He will be a great missionary.
Over the weekend, the entire Ward family spent time together. On Staurday, we all went to the Farmington pumpkin patch to play. We took a few pictures. This picture is all of us with our serious faces. I didn't end up with the happy face picture for some reason, but we were all happy when this was taken!

Thanks to all who commented on my last post. I got a lot of great advice and think I know which way to go now! I never knew that so many of you had such strong opinions on diaper choice! I love it! Anyway, my blog has been somewhat of a bore latelywithout much updating, but I have plenty of pictures and recent activities to post about as soon as I get a few minutes of free time. Stay tuned and thanks again to everyone!

Generic or Name Brand?

To save on our bugdet after we have the baby, we are trying to stock up on items we know we will needs a lot of. Diapers are one of those items but I want to know what you guys think about buying generic diapers vs name brand diapers. Does it really make a big difference? I would like to spend less and buy the generic kinds, but is it really worth it to spend more for name brand diapers? You experienced parents, please let me know what you think.

My sister Karen and my friend JoAnna tagged me on the same day with the exact same tag, so I guess that means I better do it.

Rules: Link the person that tagged you. Mention these rules on your blog. Tell 6 unspectacular quirks of yourself and tag 6 fellow bloggers

1.My favorite food for as long as I can remember is mashed potatoes, brown gravy and corn all piled on top of eachother. I want it right now actually.

2.When I am falling asleep, I always rub my feet together. It's just automatic. It is a comfort thing like having a blankey or something.

3.I never rememeber my dreams. Never. I know I dream every night because tiny tid-bits will linger for a second or two but no details and then even the tid-bits are gone before I get our of bed.

4.When I am sick, I refuse to be in my bed. It makes me feel like I am more sick than I am. I always spend sick days in the other bedroom or in the living room where I can watch TV and still feel like I am part of the activities.

5.I very very rarly take baths. I am a shower person. When I have to shave my legs, I adjust the shower spout to hit the wall while I sit down in the tub to shave.

6.One of my pet peaves is picture overload. When I go into a house that has walls chuck full of pictures, I feel claustrophobic.

I choose to tag Lexi Ward, Becca Ward, Natalie Wright, Jessica Anderson, Brooke Peterson, Holley Christensen.
