Count Down!!!!

Since last Sunday (16th)... I have been getting this lower back pain like crazy! I remember this feeling from last time! Braxton hicks is getting tighter and it is so uncomfortable when I walk... I know that the baby is telling me something!
So I was a little worried yesterday at the Dr's check up... With Kai, I couldn't see my Dr due to her medical conference or something for three weeks when I was supposed to see her every week! and finally saw her and I was dilated to 5 at the check up! I didn't know the pain I was feeling on and off was contraction! I totally freaked out! As you can imagine!

So this time, I was pretty confident that I am not that close, but I know I am getting close! Yep, I was right! I wasn't feeling this pain for nothing!
He said that the baby's head is right there.... I am getting pretty close, but not yet! He is guessing that we will still have one more check up, but I shouldn't be surprised if I go into labor any time!!!!

I still had a lot to get ready for the baby... so while Josiah was sick at home with Kai, I went to the store and got almost everything ready!!!! Lily can come any day and I won't freak out!

I am so excited to have her!

Kai and I went to a visiting teaching today and the friend we visited has a 5 month old baby! Kai was giving kisses and hugs and won't leave her alone!!!!! It was sooo cute to see how excited he was with the baby.... at the same time... oh boy....
he won't leave Lily alone....

My friend suggested that I would take a little baby doll home and show how to hold the baby and give bottle and stuff.... Kai just LOVES the doll and won't leave her alone! Thomas trains are his LIFE!!!!! but he put one of his favorite engines away and held the baby the whole time!!! I can't believe this! He is so protective of her also. When Pete come any close to the doll, he freaks out!

I am excited to see how he will react when this new baby comes!

Family Picture

We weren't going to do a family picture this year without the baby Lily.... but the day we went to Park City was just perfect for taking some family pictures! Josey's dad just sent me some pictures that he took, and here they are ;0) I am hoping to do a "family picture" when Lily comes ;0) Although Josey is from a family that dad is a great photographer, he is not a big fan of doing pictures ;0( but hopefully Lily will be a great excuse to do it and Josey will enjoy it also ;0)

Halloween 2008

This Halloween was a lot more fun than last year! Now Kai was getting the idea of Trick or Treating and enjoying it, it made it so much fun to take him and watch him.
Kai was going to be a Bob the builder at first, but he didn't like to wear the hat and the tool belt for very long time.... so the last minute mom decided that she should get a different costume for him! Kai loves Winnie the Pooh, and we were lucky to find one 2 days before Halloween ;0) Mom had to do some sewing to fit Kai's size, but it turned out perfect on him!

Since Halloween this year was on Friday, we decided to go up to Ogden and do trick or treat with Rachel's family. (we've done that every year so far) We thought that Kai would love to see his cousins! and He LOVED being around them!

This year, Kai was Winnie the Pooh, Dad was something from Hannibal...(I have to ask him the right name for it) and Mom was a witch. Josiah was totally ready for the Halloween more than a month ago! But for me, with all the parties and being pregnant and everything.... my costume wasn't the first priority this year....
So at the last minute, we stopped by at Wal-Mart and saw what I could be this year. Josiah was excited to paint my face, so I chose one that required a little bit of creativity ;0) Although after painting my face... he says "I think I messed it up..."
We were about to go out and kids were waiting for us.... no time to do it again!!!
I decided that it looked good enough for last minute costume! hahaha

Kai was so cute! The costume was perfect for him! He was a little Pooh with a Thomas candy bag! We just loved watch him walk with his cute bear costume ;0) He was begging us to open the candy every time we stop by a house....

We really had a great time!

Event Update

I haven't updating the events that are happening in our family lately....
I have two blog type of things in Japanese and this, so I always end up updating this one when I have more time to think and type in Eng...(it still takes much more time in Eng...)

Kai turned 2 years old on Oct 25th! and we had a pretty big weekend for that! We had a family dinner on Fri. I made chirashi-sushi that looked like this character that Kai loves, and Thomas the train cake ;0) Kai sure loved it, so if it didn't look that great, it sure worked for him ;0) My parents have sent him whole box full of presents, so we let him open some of them on Fri!

On Sat, we invited Josiah's whole family to this condo that we could stay for free in Park City! We reserved the biggest one we can find to fit everyone there to stay over night! We had Josiah's parents, Rachel's family, Alex family and her fiance, and Nik and his girlfriend! It was too bad that Natalie got pretty sick that her family couldn't make it... We wished that they could be there, but Kai still had a lot of fun with cousins. He doesn't get to play with his cousins very often that he was soooooo excited to be around them! It really made us happy to see how much fun he was having with the kids!
The condo had a hot tub outside, and all the kids were so excited to get in! When all the kids went in, Kai also HAD TO get in with them! The tub was full with 8 kids! It looked pretty full ;0)
Kai got a lot of presents and he was so happy to get every single of them!

The next day, Josiah's mom suggested that we should take family picture outside! It was such a pretty day and the landscape was just perfect with pretty fall color in the back! We had a really good time with family that weekend!
