More TOYS and pics!

The car seat was delivered today!  Yeah!!

Britax Chaperone Infant Car Seat
It's not your ordinary car seat! Apparently the bar in the front there is an "Anti-Rebound Bar". It's on the base and is a safety feature to stabilize the seat by "minimizing rotational forces associated with front and rear collisions" (Britax, 2011). At least that's what their website says anyway.

Anyway, on to more exciting and fun stuff!
We had the NT Scan today also!  The baby was very wiggly!! Here are some pics:

Most of these are head profile and spine:

This is a shot of the legs looking up at the booty.

I swear you need a medical degree to determine what is going on in these pictures!

Rollin' in Style

We received our first (official) baby staple today!!!

I'm so freakin excited!! Now, I can officially have baby stuff around and not seem like a weirdo!  Anyone that knows me knows, I've been "collecting" baby stuff for years now. Mostly clothes, jammies and toys. But NOW I can buy baby stuff for reals!!!!

Meet the Britax B-Ready
**It has 13 different configurations!!
**The infant and or toddler seat (shown here) can be front or rear facing
**The under seat storage is accessible from all sides
**All-wheel suspension

The infant carrier comes seperate but I found a deal on Amazon where you buy the stroller and get your choice of infant seat, bassinet, or 2nd toddler seat FREE!!!  I love free!  We chose the infant seat, it will be shipped later this week.

Now, where to put this thing.....?!

THE Man!

Meet the man that will be delivering our baby!!

Dr. Allen Sawyer

Today was our first appointment. Meeting Dr. Sawyer was surreal. Most days I still can't believe this is actually happening.

We also got some pictures of the baby to take with us.

Can't believe how much the baby has grown in such a few short weeks.

Definitely more like a baby than the first baby blob picture.

I love this kid!

Remembering a Loved One

Just recently my brother-in-laws father passed away. I never met him but thought that I would take time out from stories of my family to remember him.

Carl Wesley Rollins Sr

Scott Rollins (my brother-in-law) and Carl Rollins 

I attended his funeral this weekend and he was an amazing man. There were many people there telling their stories about Carl. I really wish I could have met him.

Carl Wesley ROLLINS Sr. 1919 - 2011 Teacher
Carl Wesley Rollins Sr. was born on June 7, 1919 in Lyman Wyoming. He entered the Lord's kingdom on August 21, 2011.
He was one of ten children born to Hardie E. Rollins and Wilhelmina (Vilda) Jensen Rollins. His family moved to Green River, WY when he was three years old. During his younger years, Carl became active in The Boy Scouts of America, high school athletics and dramatics. He graduated from high school in 1937.

Following his graduation, Carl worked for The Union Pacific Railroad as a switchman and crew caller before attending college at BYU and The University of Wyoming.

Carl answered his country's call to duty in 1942, enlisting in the U.S. Army. He was sent to Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri for basic training and then on to Officer Candidate School at Ft. Belvoir, Virginia, graduating as a 2nd Lieutenant. The remainder of his service in the Army took place with the Aviation Engineers in Burma, where he was promoted to Captain.

After the war, Carl served as Under sheriff of Sweet water County, WY for one year before re-enrolling at The University of Wyoming.

Carl was accepted as a football walk-on despite the concerns of his coaches about his age. As it turned out, he earned a starting position for three years and was elected team captain his senior year. During that year, the Cowboy football team lost only one game and won the conference championship.
Following college, he was appointed the head football/basketball coach at Sheridan High School in Wyoming, where he won four state championships in football (1952,1953,1957,1958) and a state championship in basketball (1959).

Carl moved to Provo, UT in 1959 and served as the backfield coach at BYU for three years.
He relocated to Phoenix, AZ in 1962 after being chosen as the head football coach of the newly opened Maryvale High School. During his tenure at Maryvale, Coach Rollins guided the Panther's to two 3AA Division championships. He left Maryvale H.S. in 1969 to become the head football coach at Glendale C.C. and he concluded his coaching career in 1982 as the defensive line coach at Mesa C.C. Coach Rollins valued the ethic of hard work and his teams more than made up for their lack of size and skill with a tenacious never give up attitude. His legacy of shaping young men's lives speaks for itself.
All though we never met, you will be missed dearly.
