Mckinley loves Kindergarten and is doing really well at school. I go every Thursday and volunteer and I used to hate it but now I love it. Tyler and Kallie come with me and they are always so well behaved. They just sit and draw pictures.

I swear it took us like a year and a half to finish this book but we finally did, on March 31st. It was a big accomplishment! Reading is hard for Mckinley and she doesn't like doing things that are hard so it was a big struggle but I think it helped her a lot.

We enjoyed some nice weather at our all time favorite park, Nielson's Grove. The kids love feeding the ducks.

Kallie! She kills me!

Coloring during general conference.

The kids were super excited to meet their new cousin Chloe.

We enjoyed a fun evening celebrating my dad and brother-in-law's birthdays at my brothers house. He has such a fun backyard. Tyler and Kallie ended up soaked in the stream and loved every minute of it.

So my belly popped sometime during my 12th week I think. This was me at 13 weeks. I'm 14 weeks now.

Ugh, that is a lot of shots. After 6 rounds of IVF, I also had to do blood thinner shots this pregnancy. I thought I would have to do them the entire time but my OB sent me to meet with a specialist who said I could go off them. I was not sad at all to say goodbye to these needles. Now I won't have to do blood thinners again until the baby is born.

Kallie has started drawing people! And all sorts of other things. She is definitely following in the footsteps of her older sister.

Tyler got his first professional hair cut and he was so good and just sat super still the whole time. It was awesome.
