Look at my two cute boys! They were both very tired after a night of candy and trick-or-treaters!

This is Jake and his cousin Nash. They are 5 weeks apart and going to be the best of friends!

Me and my little Giraffe! He is sooo Cute!

Jake was so tired and really not into Halloween at all but we sure enjoyed dressing him up! Next year will be better!

Jake was blessed October 11 and I am just now getting to the pictures! It was an awesome day for us. We have been anxiously waiting for this day for awhile. We had a lot of family come and support us and Steven gave a beautiful blessing! He looked very handsome in hi outfit!

This is so neat to see all the men that will be and are great examples to Jake! I am so proud that they all hold the priesthood, especially my sweet husband! He is such an amazing father and I am so glad that he chose me! I am so blessed!

Fun @ the Palmers

This is one of the best videos we have of Jake! Kami will stick out her tongue at him and he will copy her. It is really cute.

We love this kid!

Here are a few more pictures of Jake!

Leslie was asked to watch Jake for 10 minutes. He started to make noises so she freaked out and tried to pick him up. She was afraid to break him! So after about 2 minutes of trying, she managed to flop him onto her chest in this position. She was so worried that she just sat like this until help got there! She is so funny! And she'll eventually make a GREAT mom!

He fell asleep like this!

The priests in our ward came over for mutual and they love Jake!

This video is of our dog, Max. He is such a wuss! Every time we start the lawn mower or weed-eater, he runs for his life! Even when he first sees them, he hides. It makes us laugh every time so we thought we'd share!

Jake is so cute when he sleeps. He makes these noises when he breathes. He does it sometimes when he is just tire too! We love this little guy!!!

My sister-in-law Tonya got him to smile for the first time! What the heck he hasn't done that for me yet!!!!!! : )

Jake Thatcher Palmer

Jake is here!! We are so excited to have this guy home with us! What a miracle it is to have theses sweet babies come to earth the way they do! He was born August 17 at 12:17 pm. After 19 hours of labor and 1 1/2 hours of pushing he finally came and he was perfect! He was sunny side up but because of great nurses and a fabulous doctor they were able to get him to come correctly with no problems. (not the best picture of me but who really looks good after delivery)

Grandpa Reynolds AKA: Big Daddy D!

Jake weighed 8lbs 9oz and was 21 3/4 inches long! He is going to be very tall like his dad! He has very long feet and big hands which Steven is so excited for because he just knows he is going to be a great basketball player!!! He is just adorable and he is so good too. We can't really tell who he looks like but at first I thought he looked just like Steven but he keeps changing so much that I just don't know anymore. We think that he looks like his big sister in his lips and chin which is fun to see.

This has been such a neat experience for Steven and I. We are so grateful for the Plan that our Heavenly Father has for us. We are so grateful that we are an eternal family!! We are blessed to have a sweet daughter that we get to raise in the next life and then to have a handsome son we get to raise here in this life!!!! I feel such overwhelming gratitude towards my Heavenly Father for trusting us with his children.

Tomorrow is the BIG DAY!!!!

Tomorrow is the day this little guy will get here! I am scheduled to be induced Sunday at 3:00 pm. We are very excited and nervous but we are sure everything will be great! We will post pictures as soon as we can.

Steven and I are getting very anxious and excited for our little guy to get here! We have about 2 1/2 weeks left and finally we got our crib. Now he can come and we will be ready. Steven was so cute putting it together and it really was so fun to actually be putting a crib together for our baby!
I am feeling pretty good. I am dilated to a 1 1/2 and I am 50% effaced so we are making some progress!! I have another appointment Monday and hopefully I will be even farther along.

This isn't the best picture of the crib but it will do for now. We still aren't sure on a name but hopefully when we see him we will know what his name will be!

Steven and I are so proud of ourselves that our garden is actually growing! I was a little worried nothing would even come up but it is doing better then we expected! I just hope we actually get something from them. Pregnancy is going great! I am feeling really good, just hot. This baby is very healthy and is growing right on track. We still have about two months left and I am starting to get nervous as I think about what I will have to do again. It is definitely worth it but hard work! We still haven't come up with a name for this Boy. Steven still calls him Gus so until we come up with something we will call him Gus. (Don't worry that won't be his name!) I really feel akward when taking pregnancy pictures so I haven't put any on here yet but here I am in all my glory! My brother Craig comes home from his mission this Thursday and I am so excited to see him!!! Other then us waiting for our garden to grow, this baby to grow and Craig to come home we aren't doing anything too exciting!

We need your help...

Hey all,

My my brother-in-law, Craig Reynolds, is coming home from his mission soon. We are trying to compile a bunch of CDs for him of songs that have come out over the last two years. We have a pretty long list so far but we want more. If anyone can think of other good ones please leave a comment. Also, if you have any of these songs, I would love it if you emailed it to me @ so that we don't have to buy it. Thanks y'all!

"It all works out"

"It all works out, don't worry. I say that to myself every morning. It will all work out. If you do your best, it will all work out. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. If we will put our trust in him, if we will pray to him, if we will live worthy of his blessings, he will hear our prayers."

- Gordon B. Hinckley-

I know that there are some people who found our blog during the pregnancy and birth of our daughter, Aubrey. Alot of you are having similar trials to us. I have been thinking and I just want to say to all of you, things will work out. Kami and I went through hell after Aubrey died. It was the hardest thing ever. It wasn't really hard at the hospital or even right after. It got hard when everyone went back to their normal lives and we were expected to do the same. We wondered how life can go on when ours had just ended?!

If you are going through hard times, I'm sure you feel the same thing. A year, two months, and fourteen days later I can finally say that it will be ok... all will work out. Don't get me wrong, we still cry for Aubrey some nights. We still feel a hole in our hearts that will never be filled. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel for those of you going through your hard times.

If I can be so bold as to give advice... (of course I can though... this is my blog, right! :) ... my advice would be to let yourself be sad. In the scriptures, it says that Jesus wept when his friend died. All too often, people think that crying over trials shows a lack of faith... that's a load. Let yourself be sad, but then realize that in Christ, there is hope and there is a future.

Aubrey is in a wonderful place and in the best hands that we could ask for. Thank you all for your support over this last year-ish. It would have been so much harder without you. Please remember the quote at the top of this page. "It will all work out," we just need to be patient and sometimes go through hell first! Best of luck to all!

Wii Sports!!!!

Madison (Kami's sister) bought a Wii. She brought it to our house and we hooked it up to a projector and had a ball! Some got more animated than others when playing :) As you can see. I have awesome In-laws.

Sunday, March 29, 2009

This has been a very busy month for Steven and I. First off we celebrated Aubrey's one year birthday on March 7. I was afraid it would be a tough day for us but it turned out to be a good day. We drove to Mesa and spent time in the Temple and then went to her grave. We were able to spend time with both the Reynolds and the Palmers. We really just enjoyed remembering her and thinking about what she is doing now! We sure love that girl and think about her every day! We are better people because of her.

Steven and I then celebrated our birthday on March 19! (yes we share a birthday, how crazy is that) The problem is that we both want breakfast in bed but neither of us want to get it because it is both our big days. We ended up not eating a great breakfast but we went out to eat which was fun!! I really do love sharing my special day with my Love! He is the best and I am so glad I found him!!!

Lastly we went for our big sonogram on March 23 and our sweet baby is HEALTHY!!! We are so happy and relieved to know that everything is ok!!!! That was one of the most stressful days of our lives and we are glad to know things are good!!! We are very excited to have a little BOY coming to our home and blessing us with his sweet spirit! We feel so blessed to be able to get pregnant and to help in the great plan to bring these children to earth to gain bodies! We know that our little Aubrey is in Heaven right now with the other kids especially this boy telling them all kinds of stories! We hope that all of our kids feel the love that we have for each of them individually. We are excited to have this cute boy in our arms in 5 short months!!!!!

Thank you all for your input on the names. It looks like Lufanda and Max are unanimous. Ok, just Max. Lufanda is still under discussion. Kami is doing well. We had our second appointment and everything is going well. It is so awesome to hear that everything is going well! On March 23th, we get to find out what we are having. We can't wait.

Also, I am sorry if your names aren't on the side of our blog. We didn't delete any on purpose. When I switched backgrounds, some of you got deleted. It's not personal. I'm trying to put them all back on. :) If you don't mind, please leave a comment if you are not on there. I am having a hard time remembering everyone. Especially Kami's friends. Thanks y'all.

Sorry about the missing detail on the last post. I forget how much women love details. We have been incredibly busy over the last little while. Kami has been sick (not just pregnancy sick, but a bad cold also), and I have been busy with basketball.

But on to the things you guys want to hear... Kami is 13 weeks along. She has been such a trooper this pregnancy. It has been a whole different ride than las time. Last time we were just enjoying the ride during this point in the pregnancy. Until we found out about Aubrey's condition, that is. This time, we are so afraid that something is going to go wrong. We sure appreciate things more this time.

We went to our first appointment and found out that everything looks good! With Aubrey, she measured too small and that is how they found out that something was wrong. This time, our baby measured just right! Our due date is August 18th. We got to hear the heartbeat as well. That is probabl the coolest thing ever!

Thank you all for being such friends to us and being so excited for us about the things that we get excited about. We are truly blessed to have great friends and family!
