Baby boy

Yes we are expecting another baby and it is a little boy.. I went in on Monday to find out the sex of the baby. It was at one of those 4D ultrasound places, when the lady started she saw something on the ultrasound, she said that either the baby's intestines or heart was growing outside of the body and that I needed to see my doctor. Well it was five at night so I had to wait until Tuesday to get into my doctor. I researched it all night long and knew it was gastroschisis or an omphalocle. I went into the doctor on Tuesday, they did an ultrasound and confirmed that it was one of these two things but that I needed to see the specialist. We went to the specialist yesterday and they confirmed our worst fears. It is a very large omphalocele, the baby's liver, intestines, and half of the heart are growing outside of his body in a sac. They spent lots of time looking at every part of our little guy and their are other concerns as well. They did an amniocentisis- if the chromosomes come back abnormal than our baby will pass away. If the chromosomes are normal, then they will look at the heart, if the heart is ok then they will get a team of doctors together and see if they are able to place all of the organs back inside his body. They did not give us very good chances. Our hearts are broken, but we know that Heavenly Father is in charge. I know he is aware of us and our little boy. We will pray and hope that the circumstances will get better and that somehow our little one will be ok. I am so very grateful for such amazing family and friends. We have so much support and I am grateful for everyone of you who are keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. I am grateful for Jason, he is the only thing that is getting me through this, he is the greatest thing that ever happened to me and I really don't know what I would do without him. We have to take it one step at a time, right now we are just waiting for the amnio results, which take a week, then depending on those we will move to the next step.. I love this baby more than anything, I can't imagine life without him, but I know that I will have him forever

The ball in the center is the omphalocle.

Yes, a month has gone by and I'm way behind on my blogging. Nothing new and exciting has been happening, just the
usual day to day stuff. Presley has had a cold and cough for seriously three weeks and when she is sick she sleeps horribly so we have just been kind of behind on everything lately! So here's some pictures to let you know what we've been up to!

Presley has figured out what you want her to do when you take a picture, the only problem is that the smile she gives is so cheesy! and she automatically squints her eyes because she's waiting for the flash to go off! So here is some of her cheesy ready to take my picture moments..

We spend most of the day outside because she loves it so much, and the weather has been so nice, so here are some not so cheesy posed pictures..

Her new favorite thing is to put on our stuff.. shoes, hats, purses, anything that she can get her hands on, it's really cute..

One of the screws came lose on her toys so I was fixing it, I got up to do something else and she figured she would take over, please excuse the messy child in her diaper..

My sister Michelle had another little boy, he is so cute and sweet.. new babies are my favorite and I loved getting to go meet another new member of our family

A couple weeks ago we went to Flip n Out one of those trampoline places and Presley had so much fun, she loved being able to just run and jump and play.. it was so much fun..

Well that's about it, I will try to do better at staying updated on my blogging!!
