The Baby

So I have been trying to get these new pictures on here, but for some reason my computer isn't uploading them... Wierd! Anyways I have posted 2 new really cute pictures of Brynlee at the bottom of my blog... I know its a pain to scroll all the way to the bottom, but until I get the normal picture link figured out thats where the new pictures I post will be!
Things are going well with us. Christmas was alot of fun, we were able to go see both Matt and I's family,I just love Christmas time. Brynlee had a good Christmas... I think... hahah she probably just thought it was another day, except being out all day and seeing new faces, I'm sure she loved all the attention. Christmas time is such a special time, I am glad we were able to spend time with family!
Merry Christmas everyone!

She is a healthy little thing that is doing great! Matt and I can't get enough of her! Thanks to everyone for the support you have shown Matt and I! We are so excited to start this journey through life with our new little one! Here are a few pictures, and of course there will be more to come!

NEW Things

Baby Shower!!!

Little Taylor!

Matt and Tyson Playing Ball in the Back Yard!

Brynlee's Room

We finally got most of the final touches done to Brynlee's Room. My parents were nice enough to come up and help us with the decorations. My mother is so so so talented! I have taken pictures of the room, pretty much everything that you see that is fabric my mom sewed. The curtains, the baby bedding, the hamper! She has been such a help in getting the room ready. Wait I have to mention that Matt has done a very good job at helping with it too! Thanks so much for everyones help!

I have also posted some pictures of the baby shower Ali threw for me a few weeks ago, it was so good seeing everyone and thanks to everyone for all the cute things you gave me. Brynlee is going to look so cute in all the cute outfits and homemade blankets that were given to her.

Picture overload!! I never update this, but I took the cutest pictures of Matt and little Tyson playing ball in the back yard. We watched Jordan and Erins cute kids one afternoon and it was a blast! Matt and Tyson had fun playing ball and Taylor and I had fun running around the yard, eating popsicles, and playing with Boston. Thanks to Jordan and Erin for letting us watch the kiddos! Its good practice for us!!!

39 Weeks and Counting!

So I talked to my good friend Katie Staker the other day and she was sad I hadn't put any pictures of my pregnant self on my blog... There is good reason for that..! So I had my coworker Melissa take a random snap shot of me at the office. Now everyone that hasn't seen me in real life can see how big my belly has grown over the last 9 months! Enjoy! Because this picture will only be posted until my little Sweetheart arrives and then my blog will be flooded with pictures of her!

London Trip

Matt was able to go to London last week on a work trip. At least thats what he claims it was for! He had a really good time and said that he would like to take me back sometime to see the sights! YEAH!! The only thing I don't like about him going out of the country on work trips is that his phone doesn't work, and I don't get to talk to him. We did communicate by email a little bit, so that was good. Matt was also lucky enough to be flying back to New York City the same day the Yankees were playing the Red Sox. He was able to go to the game at Yankee Stadium. The Red Sox did not win that game, but he had a good time going out and seeing his team play! Hopefully him and I can go to one in BOSTON one of these days!
Here are some pictures from his trip! Enjoy!!!

Labor Day Weekend

We actually went and did something fun, so I thought I would post some pictures! Oh and not to mention I haven't had the camera out forever because Matt seemed to put it in his hunting gear and I couldn't find it! We bought a Tent Trailer this last week, and took it out on our first adventure this past weekend. We went up to strawberry and did some camping. We had such a good time, I am so glad we bought it! It will be so nice to have with a little one. It even has a bathroom!!! YEAH!!!
Drew and Ali came and so did my sister Lauri and her husband Trevor. We had the horses up there, along with the 4wheelers my parents brought up saturday morning. They stayed most of the day and then even came back up sunday to hang out some more. Matt and Drew didn't have any luck with the hunting part of the trip, but everyone had a good time otherwise!

Baby Girl

Hi everyone! So Matt and I went in for the 20 week appointment that included the ultrasound! We told the doctor we didn't want to know what it is, but that we wanted her to write it down and put it in an envelope so we could open it with family. She went over all the main baby parts, brain, kidneys, heart, face, spine, and tons more. We were so happy to find out that our baby looks very healthy at this point, no problems developing at all. This was such a relieve to me as I had been worrying the last few days for the ultrasound, hoping and praying everything would be developing ok. Technology is so amazing, I can't believe what they can do and see. It was so amazing to see the postions of the baby and facial shots! We have an ultrasound photo from yesterdays visit of the babies face and her arms are cuddled up next to her face! Oh so cute, I can't wait for her to come!!! (Its crazy now I can call it a her!!! And not an "it" or "Baby". Thanks so much for everyones support and love!!! Oh p.s. they didn't change my due date. It is still November 16th. The doctor said she is measuring a little further along now (Nov 13th) but not enough to change the date.
I'll keep you all posted!

We are having a Baby Girl!

I have been telling people for months now that I would post this on my blog but I just haven't had the time! But for those of you that don't know Matt and I are having a baby! I am 14 weeks along, I am due November 16th. The story behind my due date is that when I first found out I was pregnant and called the doctors office they ask you when you had your last period and they determine your due date off of that. So it was set for October 31st, I went in for my first appointment at 12 weeks and they couldn't find a heart beat with the Doppler instrument, so they did an ultrasound (which was really cool, because we got to see the little baby) and they measured it by using the Ultasound info and said the baby was only measuring at 9 1/2 weeks. So that is why they pushed my Due Date back to November 16th. We are just excited for the opportunity to be parents so we won't complain to much if we have to wait 2 more weeks for the little one to get here! I just had my second appointment today and the baby is now far enough along that I was able to hear the babies heart beat with the doppler. It's heart beat was going so fast at 155 beats a minute. It was such an amazing thing to hear the heart beat! The ultrasound appointment is set for June 23rd.

The Move

Hi everyone! So I again apologize for not having posted anything new for along time. I will start to be better! So there have been a few exciting things happen around the McBride household, so I decided I would share.
First off Matt and I have moved out of our West Jordan house and are currently living with Matt's Parents (Jill and John) until we find another one. Boston was so excited about the move because now he can hang with his best friend Chesney all day long! Even though Chesney (a Golden Retriever) doesn't like Boston as much as we would like I know deep down she really likes him being around. (Boston being a Boxer, just wants to play play play)
My little brother Bret got his mission call yesterday and will be serving in the Seattle, Washington Mission. He leaves May 27th!!! Which is so soon!!! We are so excited for him!!!
Thats about it! Until next time, take care!
