Oh My... I think her feelings were hurt!

Well yesterday I had my first eye-opening experience with handling a girl. I have had 4 baby boys and none of them have ever done this... is it a sign that she is going to be very emotional (like her mother!)?

Here is what happened:
Jace, being the mean older brother already, threw an empty bottle at Eden's head. Granted it hurt and any baby would cry. I get that. I comforted her and she stopped crying and was fine. But for about 5 minutes after she had stopped crying, she whimpered every few seconds. I just held her and was so surprised that she was still affected by what had happened to her. Is this what I have to look forward too?

She is Not Just a Girl... She's a Princess

These are just a few of my favorites of our baby girl. She is already 3 months old and I can't believe it. I received a text message today from my niece teasing me that I need to update my blog... and she was right! It's been a while and I really should have posted something sooner. We are so blessed to have this little girl in our home. She is adored by all of us. Kent started calling her princess shortly after she was born and the nickname has stuck. Joshy even calls her "Princess" when he is talking to her. It's so cute!

She has been such an easy baby so far. I have to say she does take after her mom in atleast one aspect: She loves to sleep! She has basically been sleeping through the night since she was born and even now sleeps for 12-13 hours at night. I love her for that!
She loves to smile and will get this little grin on her face when you talk to her. She is already trying to talk back. She coo's at gurgles. I think she is going to be a typical girl in the fact that she loves to talk too.
Luke has taken a very special interest in her. He comments on how cute she looks in her outfits and what a pretty baby she is. And just this past Sunday, I put a brown bow in her hair and he said "that bow doesn't look right, don't you have another color"? It was the same color as her hair and he wanted the bow to stick out more. Too funny!

We are all enjoying our new little addition and could not even imagine life without our little princess. Besides having a girl now in our home, the rest of life seems to be about the same. Kent is teaching seminary again this year, I am back to my teaching yoga classes, and the boys are as energetic as ever --- life is just good.

Caleb and Luke have recently developed a serious passion for football. They spend hours during the week playing outside with friends and Kent. They got real BYU football jersey uniforms from Santa this year and Luke wears his daily. He gets home from school and changes into his pads and helmet, ready for some tackles- he says. They also have an infatuation with the Colts (because of former BYU wide receiver Austin Collie). The boys got a Colts jersey shirt fron their Grandma for Christmas and Luke has now worn his for the past 3 school days. I told him that he cannot weat it again tomorrow. I am sure his teacher thinks I never do laundry! My living room has turned into a training base where passes are thrown, routes are run and play action never ceases! It's fun most days, except for the occasional banging on my walls and tackles that were a bit too hard.

It's a good life though being a mom of 4 boys and a little princess.

It's a Girl!

I have had 2 ultrasounds to confirm it... I am having a girl! Unbelievable, huh? I might have to change my blog name to wagnerfamilyofboysandonespoiledlittleprincess!

We are all thrilled to have a little girl, especially Caleb and Luke. Caleb said that if I was having another boy that he is going to faint. Kent and I are still in a little state of shock, I think. We just look at each other and smile, thinking... really, a girl? That is going to be so different. We are determined though that if she is not bleeding- then there is no need to cry. Is that going to work on a girl? Hmmm... or will their feelings just get hurt? Our boys get sad/mad, but by the time that you are ready to talk to them about it- they are over it and back outside playing with the one who caused all the commotion. I am excited to finally get some pink in our house though- and it will open up a whole new world of shopping! Yea!

I have some ultrasound pics, and will scan those for my next post! Just thought I would let the world know though, the Wagner's are finally getting a girl after 4 boys!

St. George- Getaway!

This past weekend, Kent and I were able to sneak away and have a night all to ourselves- and a morning of sleeping in! We went up to St. George for a little church concert- Nashville Tribute. We have loved their music since one of my young women introduced me to the band. They are amazing! If you haven't heard them, buy their CDs. They are coming out with a new Tribute to Missionaries soon, which was part of the concert. They are so talented!

The concert was at Tuacahn. Thank goodness we brought blankets and sweat shirts... it got so cold & windy. But nothing that a little snuggle and 2 cups of hot chocolate couldn't fix :)

We had a great time! Thanks Krista for watching them! What are we going to do when you go on your mission? Plus, who is going to want to watch 5 kids? Hopefully someone!

Surround Yourself with Greatness

So, Caleb has been reading this book given to him by Grandpa Wagner on his baptism day. Kent had already read the book, but Caleb now has his own copy. Well, he was reading it this afternoon in the car and comes to this part and says, "I wish I could be like that". He then read what he thought was pretty cool about Chad Lewis.

This is during the time when Chad's father was in the hospital, right before his mission.

I am impressed with this boy once again!

For the most part, I think this little 8 year old boy does a pretty good job at showing us gratitude. He is very reliable, trustworthy and dependable. I really couldn't do it without him. Even though he did say to me, a while after Jace was born, "mom I don't think you should have any more babies. I don't think I can take care of one more". But, he is excited about this new little one coming and probably doesn't even remember saying that. But-

When I hear him pray that he and his brothers will grow up to be good missionaries, when I see him play with his little brothers, and when I still get a kiss & a hug every night with an "I love you Mom"... that is all the gratitude I need.

I am Pregnant again! AGAIN?

Yup... it's true! There is another baby on the way= 5!

And the #1 question that is on your mind: Did we plan this?

Yes and No. Allow me to explain. I had some complications after Josh (#3) that the doctors told us we would have a more difficult time getting pregnant, so if we wanted more- we should have them sooner rather than later. So we began trying for #4 and 8 months later, we got pregant with Jace. I was thinking, it will take another 8 months or so to get pregnant- thinking it would be a good time around Sept or Oct to find out we are pregnant. But low and behold, 1 month later- Congratulations, we are pregnant! haha... It's funny how things turn out that way.

Here is my first ultrasound of our little grain of rice (5 weeks ago at 7 weeks). We have advanced to about the size of a kidney bean now at 10 weeks. I am 12 weeks though now- almost!

And the 2nd most common question, how am I feeling? I am ok. I don't barf like other women, I just feel like I want to all day. There are certain smells and things that really bother me, but for the most part I am just tired. I do however- hate the smell, feel, and sight of veggie straws, yuck! My kids love them and Jace wants to eat them all day long, but I gag everytime I have to open the bag and pour them out. I don't touch them, but I am getting ill just thinking about it right now.
We are all really excited now, hoping for a girl but will be "ok" if we have yet, another boy! I am actually expecting to see what I have always seen when the time comes to find out. But that is ok! The kids don't like my name for a girl anyhow!
I have gained 4 pounds already- yea! Sad... but I have no one to blame but myself. All I want is sherber, sprite, pie, cookies, bread, carbs carbs carbs! I am hoping to start eating a little healthier soon. I think the only vegetables I have eaten have been in the sushi that I am craving. Yes, I eat sushi when I am pregnant. I figure- Japanese women do it and have had babies for centuries. I love it and won't give it up. Plus, I need to eat better right?
So- now the world knows: The Wagner's are crazy, but are thrilled about the new adventure in their lives!
