Getting Caught Up, some good news and fun stuff!

I am so ashamed, I was a little unsure about my password, because it has been so long since I have logged in. I did remember it though. So I guess I have some catching up to do.

First, Lets go back to the beginning of last month. Joel and I found out that we are expecting baby number two! We are really excited. Unlike last time, we already have names picked out, boy and girl, amazingly. For those who don't know, we didn't decide on Kailey's name until the birth certificate folks called the day after she was born. At that point Joel told me that I could chose, and that's how we came to Kailey.
I am due the 4th of February, so I am just past 11 weeks. So far so good, I was really blessed with a relatively easy pregnancy with Kailey, and this one is following suit. The only difference is that I have been soooo tired with this one. Good thing Kailey takes good naps. Last week, I caught myself, mid day, falling asleep sitting straight up on the couch. I have a sonogram scheduled for a week from today. This one is an early one to check for proper neural tube development (we didn't do this one with Kailey). I am excited to see the baby even though we won't be able to tell the gender this early. We do plan on finding out whether the baby is a boy or a girl. I think that it would be fun to have it be a suprise, but until I have had both a boy and a girl, I just don't think that I can do it.

Bonnette Family Reunion
Last month we also had the first ever Bonnette Family Reunion in Charleston, SC. Wendy did a great job on the location and planning. Kailey absolutely loved the beach. We also had a fun time at Ft. Sumter and the aquarium. With most of the family living in different parts of the country it was great to get to visit with everyone.

It seems that Joel and I always forget something when we pack, well ok, its usually me that forgets something. This time it was bad, we forgot the camera! There was a miscommunication about the carry-ons. I forgot our coats, of all things, when we visited Jonathan and Brandy in April, in UT; no miscommunication, just me! Anyway, Jared and Keri were kind enough to share their camera. Thanks for sending the pictures Keri! We shared a room with Jared and Keri, and they were great roommates! They left a day before we did, and Keri was so thoughtful, she left me some shampoo and conditioner. I had to throw mine away at the airport, another miscommunication with the carry-ons :(

All 28 of us. Jeff and Kamra's family are in turqoise(Jeff with Maison, Kamra with Jayden and Avery left and Zoe right); Wendy and Byron's family are in navy(Wendy, Bryon with Dathan, Dahlin, Davin, Madelyn. and Daniel); mom, dad and the girls in green (Mavanie left and Amilyn right); Jonathan and Brandy's family in brown (Jonathan with Avalyn, Brandy with Zachary, Kaylyn, and Eric); and Jared in Keri in white. Sorry for misspelling any names.

I thought this one was funny, b/c Kailey has her tongue out and Jayden is about to get her.

You probably can't tell, but this is us "trotting." Kailey does this funny little trotting thing when she gets excited about something. It is also one of her dance moves. She did a lot of trotting at the beach.


  1. I'm so glad you've finally put new stuff on your blog! The pictures are so cute, especially the 3 of you walking on the beach holding hands...adorable!
    Now as far as the baby thing goes I'm very excited to find out what you're having. I don't know how I didn't find out b/c I find myself going crazy waiting to find out what my friends are having!

  2. You weren't kidding about getting caught up... you've been pretty busy! Kailey is precious! I only saw her when she was itty bitty- time has sure flown by. The family reunion pictures are so clever- I love the color coordination for each family. Speaking of family... congrats on the newest member- I'm sure he/she will be just as cute as all of you! Thanks for catching us up!

  3. Congratulations on number 2! It is so much fun to have another little one, even though it does get crazier! And Kailey is so cute - I love the pics at the park!

  4. I love "the trot"!!! It's my favorite!

  5. I can't believe Kailey is so big. She is adorable! Congrats on the new baby, keep us updated.
