Quote of the Day

Isn't having a baby around just priceless! It makes you see the world from a whole different perspective. So many times I will have so much to do around the house when Audrey and I get home but I find myself sitting on the floor playing with her, reading her a story, singing songs, or just cuddling on the couch for her nap instead. Even though my house may not be in perfect order all the time I wouldn't trade those moments with Audrey for anything.
I read this perfect quote on my cousin-in-laws blog and wanted to share it with you all...
Cleaning and scrubbing
Can wait 'til tomorrow
For babies grow up
I've learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs
Dust go to sleep
I'm rocking my baby
And babies don't keep.
Isn't that the truth?!

Audrey and I celebrating New Years! She had a darling sparkly halo and necklace thanks to my cousin Mady and she had a very fun time. We went to my Grandma's house and played games with my family all night. There was lots of good food and fun, it was a great way to end last year and begin this year!

This is a pic from our Anniversary that kind of shows my new beautiful necklace. This is right after he gave it to me and put in on me, we took the picture ourselves (i'm sure you can tell).

Drew and I enjoying our walk around the Temple Square and down memory lane. It was such a beautiful night and Drew made it so romatic!

2nd Anniversary!

Wow! Two whole years! On one hand I can't believe how fast the time goes but then on the other hand I feel like we have been together forever! Drew and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary on the 12th and Drew really spoiled me! Drew planned the night out for us and even got a babysitter without me knowing! He took me to Salt Lake to walk around Temple Square since we were married in the Salt Lake Temple. We walked through the grounds and the visitors center and then he stopped us to sit on a couch with a beautiful view of the Temple in the South Visitors Center. After a minute of just admiring the temple he said that he wanted to give me something that really meant something for our anniversary and pulled out a jewelry box! You can imagine my shock since he swore he wouldn't give me anymore jewelry after my wedding ring because I have so much! He said 2 years ago he gave me his heart and he would do it all over again and gave me the little box with a beautiful heart necklace with pink stones (I will post pictures soon)! Of course I cried! It was really gushy but I loved every minute of it! He is just so sweet! Much more sentimental then I am since I got him camo seat covers for his truck! Oh well, I think he was as happy with those as I was with the beautiful necklace he got me! Then we were going to go out to dinner at the Macaroni Grill for old time sake but when we got there we found out that it has gone out of business, how sad! So we headed over to the Gateway and enjoyed a nice dinner together, got a movie and headed home to cuddle up on the Lovesac and watch it. It was a wonderful night and an incredible way to start our 3rd year together!

She just layed and looked at the magizine making adorable sighs and then when we went to look at the jewlry table she just got so excited pointing and squilling with a huge smile on her face! I was so proud!

9 Month Doctor's Visit

So, we went to the doctor yesterday for Audrey's 9 Month checkup...
She is a whopping 15 lbs. and is 27 in.! My little string bean! The doctor says that she is in the 5% in weight and 75% in height. She said our little Audrey is doing great and is right on schedule for everything, she growing at her own little pace and she is perfect. She is just a daintly little girl with an excellent matabolism!
Audrey loved the doctor's office until she got her shots, she let out a few little crys and then in went her fingers to console her. The only thing that would make her smile again where the smarties that we got on the way out! You'd never know it by looking at her but that little girl loves food and a treat can always put her in a good mood! She is definately her mothers daughter in that department!


I'm making and selling these darling bows, bracelets, flowers, and headbands!


Cute, cute, cute!
