We set a date...

My doctor and I have set a date... the date that I am going to be induced! I love having that end date. I am being induced Nov. 10. I was induced with Dawson Feb. 10 at 7 am but he didn't show up til the 11th so we'll see what happens with this one. My doctor seems confident that this one will come faster but I'm not so sure. I am being induced 5 days before my due date, hopefully this will mean a smaller baby. Even an ounce or two smaller would be nice :) Speaking of which Dawson is now a "big boy", he started nursery (YIPPY) and is sleeping in a big boy bed! We actually started taking Dawson to nursery a few weeks early and would just stay with him (since he wasn't really suppose to be there). While we were in there with him he would just pay no attention to us, while other children would come over and ask us to play or read to them. Dawson would just look over at me sometimes like "what are you still doing here?". So on his first real day we left him and things were wonderful!! Well at least for me, Dave and Dawson, I'm not sure the other children liked it much. Dawson is a bit of a bully and doesn't know how to share yet and he uses being the biggest in the class to his advantage. We were told when we came to pick him up that he made a few kids cry by head butting them. Lovely. At least I know he can hold his own being the new kid in class.
About a month ago we moved the office stuff downstairs and set up Dawson's toddler bed in his new room just so I could start getting things ready in the nursery (Dawsons current room). I wasn't planing on putting Dawson in the new room and bed for a month or two but after his grandma's came over and told him how exciting it was that he now had a new big boy bed I guess it got him all excited too. That night after I got him all ready for bed I told him it was bedtime and he ran into his new room and got himself all tucked into his toddler bed. I told him if he wanted to he could sleep there, expecting him to come out after a few minutes, but he didn't come out until the next morning! So now we are going on week 3 of toddler bed, the only problem is naptime he will go down fine but he comes out after about 10 min. thinking that he had a long enough nap so naptime is still in the crib for now. The only thing that I am not liking about the new bed is that now he is not stuck in the crib until we get him, he can come out at 7:30 (before I normally wake up) and try to open my eye's with his little fingers. Oh well at least it was an easier transition then I thought it would be :)
So there are no pictures in this blog I need to get a bunch off my camera, so I will include some pictures next time.

It has been a little while but over the 24th we went with Daves family down to St. George and Las Vegas. In Las Vegas the boys went to see the USA Olympic Basketball team play Canada and the girls of course went shopping. I think that the best part of the trip was that Dave took Dawson with him while I got to shop in peace! Dawson really hates going to the mall with me and just wants to get out and run. I think that he really enjoyed going to a basketball game again, it has been a little while since the Jazz have played and they were able to see two of our jazz men out on the court. Dave and Dawson both wore there Jazz shirts to show support for Deron and Carlos. They of course beat Canada! GO USA!! I love how small Dawson looks in this picture next to the huge poster of some basketball players :)
It was SUPER hot in St. George as usual so we made the most of it by shopping and swimming!

We had some lunch at Ruby River and it was Aunt Joyce's birthday (Dave's aunt that was also in St. George) so after the singing Dawson was able to wear the birthday hat.

As you can see he was a little busy on the cell phone to look up for a picture.

We had a fun little family trip, it was great to spend time with Dave's Family.
