CaTcHinG uP!!!

I have been the biggest slacker lately!! I have a ton of stuff I want to blog but I just don't. It is my life story right now. I have next to NO motivation to do anything. Getting through the days sometimes is accomplishment enough! The babies are doing good, they each weigh about 2 1/2 pounds. They are super HEAVY already though. My belly button has popped out already (it never did with my other kids). I am just getting HUGE!! I feel like I am in my last month and I still have at least 2 to go!! We are thinking we should start getting ready for them, we have seriously done NOTHING. We had an apt with the perinatologist and I think that was the first time I felt some excitement for them to come. They are cute! Jon said the same thing when we left. I know it is sad! If anybody has name ideas they would be great!! Even middle names we want them to have middle names but just random ones.
Kamryn got her insulin pump almost a month ago. It was a ton of worry and finger pokes at first. We have gotten the hang of it and it is AWESOME!! Kam can eat what she wants when she wants and we just program the machine to give her insulin. She only has to get poked once every 3 days and it has really helped control her sugars. It has not been without issues to work through (she got cellulitis in her leg :( ) It has been a HUGE blessing in our lives. I was worried it would effect her body image at first but she loves to show it off and wears it on her clothes for everyone to see. She is even starting to learn to work it herself. We need to have her a pro before she starts 1st grade in the fall so she can be independent with school lunch.
She also moved into her new room awhile ago. Jon did an awesome job building it for her and it is DARLING. She picked out what she wanted and has it just her way. I worried she would be scared to move into the basement but she loves it.
Rykers birthday was Monday. I cannot believe I have an 8 year old!! He has been so excited to turn 8 and get baptized and start scouts. We only let our kids have a party on their odd birthday but on their even one they get to take a friend and do something fun. Well Jon and I are huge pushovers and ended up taking 9 kids to the clearfield pool to swim! (it is sooo cheap though!) Ryker has a bunch of good friends and everyone wanted him to invite them and i seriously have this problem where I can't say NO! Kamryn brought her friends to so it turned into a bigger group than we started with but it was a blast.
The night of his birthday we got our families together at the pizzaria (of course!) We seriously are addicted to that place. It turned out really fun Ryker had all of his grandparents and his great grandparents come. His aunt and uncle were there with our cute cousins and then remember the "cousins" that are really distant? We were told that they are cousins and have to come so they came also. It was a big group. Ryker felt so special it was great.
The best dad ever!! Ryker really looks up to him. It has made a big difference in their relationship having Jon home a lot. We are really lucky.
I love this pic because it has his great grandparents in it which is priceless.


  1. Love the update.....Glad to hear that you and those babies are doing well! How about one baby being named Grady Jerrett Jensen? :)I'm teasing! I haven't thought about boy names forever but I let you know if I hear anything cute! I honestly have never seen an insulin pump....I assume that is it in the photograph? It's so cute and tiny....I'm so glad she is doing well with it! Yes, we should definitely go see New Moon together! I'm getting way excited for the cruise but I'm a little sad cause I'm so tubby, but I insist of having an awesome time anyway! Oh, by the way, I don't feel like doing anything at all either but I'm not pregnant with should have little servants fanning you with palm fronds at this point.....what a woman you are!

  2. Hey there thanks for the update looks like you guys have been way busy! We will see you this weekend and I think we have the crib thing figured out. As for names I say one could be Brody Jarret and then the other Braksten Jake I am sure I will change my mind but I like those for today. I found another blog that I linked to you a lady who daughter was just diagnosed with Diabetes about the same age as Kam. Her Blog is

  3. Hey Traci I am so glad you updated I have been wondering about Kam and how she was doing! It sounds like she is adjusting well and has great parents to help her through it. I can't believe Ryker is 8 that is UNBELIEVABLE!!!! As for names I have no idea it took us forever to decide on one but here are the others that we had considered: Jase, Grady, Gage, and Davin. I really liked Jase but Jared wasn't feeling it! I miss you too! It seems like forever since I have seen you! So I hope to see you soon! :)

  4. It's so good to hear an update! I've been wondering about you! I think about you a lot because I cannot imagine having two babies! You will be awesome though! Good luck with the name thing! We had a hard enough time coming up with the two boys names we have! It's good to hear Kamryn has adjusted so well! That's a lot for a little girl to deal with! What a trooper! And as for Ryker being EIGHT? When did that happen! You guys are OLD! Oh wait, I have a 12-year-old who will turn into a teenager this year! YIKES! Take care and keep updating your blog! I love it!

  5. It was SO good to run in to you guys!! Traci you look GREAT! You are such a CUTE pregnant lady!! I don't think these kids could be born into a better family. Love ya xoxo
