I numbered them so it would be easier to comment.
So, here's a story. I talked to N today. Well, I ran into him at his work. I was buying things for a friend and I was walking out and saw him sitting at McDonald's. I thought he was on break and I had on me a copy of the 3d/4d ultrasound so I gave it to him.
Uh, I don't think I should go into huge details about the conversation.
He doesn't understand why I'm mad at him all the time.
I just don't think it's fair that I have to go through the 10 months of pregnancy (40 weeks peeps, come on.) and then he gets to have the fun part after I'm all done going through all of that.
It's frustrating.
Then he doesn't know how to be involved because I don't really tell him how and that he thinks it's just for me and not for Olivia.
All I said is that she's not her own person yet to support her so he's just going to have to deal with me for a while. And it may not be financial support or physical support. More just emotional support. If I see him trying to make an effort to talk to me and see how I'm doing or how Olivia is doing. Or if I it's even just a simple conversation then I'll be okay to know that he's doing his best in supporting her. I don't think I'm asking for a whole bunch. I'm not asking him to marry me or to be Olivia's father. I'm not asking him to hand over thousands of dollars or asking him to buy me things all the time or to buy her things. It's more I'm asking him to at least appreciate the girl carrying his baby.



  1. You Look really cute in all those pictures! I like Your Pregnant curve one! like I mean a lot! I can't really explain why because it's kind of complicated... I don't know... You can say there is a lot of Love in it and precious! I Like it! :D Oh and I like #32 when your playing with Bradshaw in the Water! Your smile is so cute and precious with him! It is like a precious moments thing! It's like you fit right in really well into their family just because of the link to your Daughter! :D It is amazing to see that!

  4. That is so cool that you uploaded 31 pictures. I love looking at them. I am still in awe of the firework pictures you took...very impressive.
    My fave five are:
    1. b/c we really loved being able to see Olivia with you. It was so exciting my heart still pounds thinking about that. (Greatest idea ever.)
    6. that bossy boy still cracks me up
    8. you are so good to Bradshaw! And he totally feels the love (btw..he said his own prayer tonight! A string of single words...precious.
    31. b/c you are so cute, it's unfair =)
    33. The monuments at night are magical

  5. ok so it is WAY too eerie how similar Alex and Nic are acting in this situation........They're silly little boys who need to grow up. I mean for real.....uh...whatever....srry.

    anyway, I just wanted to drop by and say something. I was watching the 16 and pregnant finale show and for part of it, they talked to a couple who put their baby up for adoption, and I thought of you. I truly admire you for making this decision. You are doing an amazing thing. I'm so happy that I've been able to have you as a friend. yay for :P I really hope we do meet up one day. Our babies must play!

  6. I apparently can't count. Just so everyone knows. I skipped numbers and doubled them. So judge me.

  7. lol we won't judge you!! lol It's all because you are pregnant and what not, I think it is a good excuse definitely! LOL Ugh! I can't even sleep and it is 5:00 in the morning and I went to bed around 11:30 last night... you'd think I'd at least get some sleep! :P

  8. Oh and I think I gotta hear about the Bossy Boy story! It looks like he's trying to say that "you can't play at the park you're too big!" Kind of Wording! LOL ;) I could be wrong! LOL

  9. Yay- I made the blog :)
    #10- Poor bubs, we should have dried off his face before taking these.. he looks all sweaty. But he does look like an A&F model.. with a 6pack of sorts, I like to call it his bottle belly. :)
    #11- This is just one of the many examples of how excited Val is. Did you happen to look in the dresser drawers? oh la la...
    #21- For some reason instead of looking tan.. my feet look dirty. They aren't. Promise!

  10. NO, I did NOT look in the dresser drawers! Daaaaang it. Ha. The closet door was open. I wasn't snooping I promise.

    Natasha- The park had a toy wheel on it and he was calling it a boat and he was telling us to get on the boat.

  11. haha! That is funny!! LOL :D I remember riding those tire toys at the park at my cousin's old elementary School in Provo! IT was awesome!! :D

  12. Kid in the park looks like a BOSS. That's so money. I like the fireworks pictures too by the way. And 31 because you're pregnant and still a stunner. Uhhh, I'm going to see Orphan tonight. I'll let you know how it is. HAHA Just kidding.
