Welcome little Josie

Before I start I have to warn you that there are A LOT of pictures coming in this post, but it was hard to narrow it down to just a few, and I could have used even more.

Josie's birth story is a lot like Grace's, a low-stress scheduled c-section.  One difference this time was that I got to have a few ultrasounds toward the end of my pregnancy, because I am technically in the "high risk pregnancy" category.  It was pretty cool to get to see the baby again before she was born and get the reassurance that she was developing just like she should.  Two days before surgery I had an ultrasound and the tech said it looked like she was 7 lbs. 8 oz. and I thought that sounded like a perfect size baby and I was very excited to see if she was right.

One of the nice things about having c-sections is knowing exactly when I'm having the baby and being able to get everything done and ready for her arrival.  I did lots of "nesting," getting things cleaned and organized…

Super Awesome!

The kids were playing with this mask and when I came in the room after Grace put it on she saw me and exclaimed, "SOOPUH POWAHS!"

Her super power is cuteness!
Today she was turning a lamp on and off and saying, "See? See?"  After doing this several times she threw both arms in the air and said, "I AN AWESOME!"

Camping and Bear Lake

About a week ago little Richie asked me if we could go camping some time and luckily Grandma and Grandpa Call were already planning on coming down that weekend for their annual camping trip up Logan Canyon, so I could tell him yes.  The kids LOVE camping and they were super excited.  Richie, Grace and I didn't stay over night but we went up during the day.

One of their favorite activities is playing by the river.  They dig in the sand, build little sand castles and throw things in the water.  It keeps them busy for hours.  They also like roasting marshmallows for smores, going on hikes and all the other things you do when camping.  Richie took his journal so he could keep track of all the things that happened.  He wrote about the sand castle he built, the inch worm that Sophia found, and seeing a flying squirrel, a moose and a bat.  They had so much fun and I am so glad they got to spend that time with their grandparents and aunt and uncle.

Here is the moose we saw right by the c…
