Well Hello There

I'm sure you all think I am an awful blogger and I am sure you all are wondering where the hell the wedding pictures. Let me just tell you all that I am STILL waiting to see wedding pictures! My friends and family are holding out on me. So I PROMISE as soon as I start getting them, I will start sharing them.

In other news, I am still going non-stop. I thought after the wedding things would calm down. Nope. Yesterday was a long day starting from the time I got my babies from their mom til the time we went to bed. We celebrated Sethie's 4th birthday which was actually Monday. I am floored that the boy wasn't even two when Eli and I started dated! Goodness time flies. Today we spent most of the day at Wild Waters. My babies are pooped and sacked out on the couch right now. I am pooped as well, but have no such luck of snoozing with them. I have laundry to do. And I need to clean my house. I am having a hard time keeping up with the house work because I am always on the go and always outside. Who likes to be cooped up cleaning when the weather is so gorgeous out??

Oh!!! And my best friend was in town and I got to spend a crazy awesome amount of time with her. In fact, I kicked my husband out of the house Monday night to have girls night and a sleep over! hahaha

I hope everyone is doing well. I am hoping for more time on the computer tomorrow to read some blogs and see what is going on in the world.

I do want to send out a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Multi-Tasking Mama on the arrival of her beautiful baby girl!!!! I am so happy for you and your family. Sweet Maggie is absolutely beautiful and you look gorgeous!

We Did It!!!

Saturday was one of the best, most memorable days of my life!!!! I am still floating and even more in love than I was before. I have tons and tons of pictures to post and so much to say about the day, but don't have the time to sit and do it now. I will make the time this week though for sure because it was honestly a beautiful wedding!

What Do I Do??

My baby keeps rolling from her back to her front and SLEEPING ON HER TUMMY!!! This freaks me out. I have always heard to keep them on their back and yet she L-O-V-E-S to sleep on her tummy. She gets so peaceful too when she does it. A few times I have rolled her over. Sometimes she will stay asleep and then others she stirs and will fidget until she rolls back on her belly.

Last night she slept in her crib in HER ROOM for a few hours. It was weird!!!! I fed her and put her in her cradle and then by the end of the night, she ended up in bed with Eli and I. I have been so exhausted lately that I have been giving in to her being in bed with us because I want my sleep and don't want to loose sleep with her fighting sleeping on her own. Ugh, since Disneyland everything has been off with the sleeping. Well, that and her not feeling good.

Oh and have I said that Saturday...

I'M GETTING MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I know, I am already married. But this time, I get all my close friends and family there. I get to wear the most gorgeous dress I will ever put on that I found a year ago. I am beyond excited. In fact, words can't even explain how excited I am right now. Today when I was shopping and finishing up all that I needed to do so I could relax the rest of the night, it all really hit me. I am marrying the man of my dreams...AGAIN...on Saturday. And I can't wait!!! I can't wait to see him, I can't wait to see our babies all decked out. I can't wait for all of it.

I want to with my parents a very Happy Anniversary. Today they are sharing 29 years of marriage. I am so proud of them for making it this far. They are truly an inspiration and I am so happy for them and happy for the love that they share.

I also want to wish my best friend, Kara, and her husband, Paul, a Happy Anniversary. A year ago today they got married in Park City. It was such a beautiful evening and I truly happy for them.

4th of July Babies

The quality of this picture isn't the best, but here are the loves of my life all decked out in their 4th of July outfits. We had the most fun day. This summer has been awesome for us. Without these three little munchkins, I would be a lost soul.

Today's Nap

Today for nap time, we tried something new. I rocked Skylar for a bit, but she was fighting sleep. So, I put her in her crib (which she NEVER sleeps in!!!) and turned on her mobile. She sat in there talking to the animals and then within five minutes, there was silence. I went in there to find that my sweet little girl put herself to sleep without even crying. It was awesome.

Now, we just need her to get back to sleeping 6-8 hours at night!!! :)

I am way open for suggestions. I know all you mommy's out there have tried many things, so I would love to hear what worked for you!

4 Months - July 6


What a whirlwind the last four months have been. And I have loved and enjoyed every last minute. I absolutely love being a full time mommy. I love knowing that I get to spend my days with Skylar and Seth and Swae (when we have them). I couldn't be happier! These last four months have been the best of my life. I can't even begin to imagine what our lives were like without Skylar. She is such a wonderful little girl. And boy is she growing! I have been so busy that I totally missed sending out a three month letter and I am beating myself up for that. I really need to make it a priority! Everything with our family is going extremely well. Swae and Seth are enjoying the summer. We are going to Wild Water's at least once a week. They are definitely little water babies! Skylar doesn't mind at all going and being in the heat, but isn't so sure of the cool water. We try to spend as much time outside as possible and a new favorite is going on bike rides as a family!

And now, my letter to Skylar!

Sweet Skylar,

Happy Four Months little love!!! Four months already? Where did my little infant go?? While I miss you being little so much, I enjoy how big you are getting, watching you grow, watching you learn...everything about you. It's amazing that my heart doesn't just explode from all the love I have for you.

It blows me away that you are already rolling over (back to front and front to back). I remember your sweet little face the first time you did it and the surprise that was on it. But then, you were all about it. You definitely don't sit still. You are a little mover! You have found your voice and love to use it. At first it was most you just screaming - both when you are happy and mad. Now, you are 'talking' all the time. You wake up and look at me with your sweet little smile and start talking. You talk constantly and you LOVE telling your sissy and brother stories. Actually, you love everything about your sister and brother. And boy do Swae and Seth adore the heck out of you. When Daddy and I call them while they are with their mom, they always ask about you and they always ask to talk to you. The minute you hear their voice over the phone you start beaming. It is the cutest thing in the world. The love that the three of you have is something special and truly beautiful.

The bond you share with your Daddy is breath taking. There is no doubt in my mind that you will be a Daddy's Girl for sure. You love him so much. When he gets home at night, your eyes don't leave him. You love being in his arms and he always seems to get you to calm down when I can't. You two have a connection that is precious. I love the way your little face lights up when he looks over and smiles at you. I love to watch the two of you take nappers together. I love to see the two of you play on the floor. Your Daddy adores you sweet girl, just as I do.

We have had a bit of a rough time too the past month. You have been suffering from acid reflux really bad. It has completely disrupted your sleep schedule and you were definitely a miserable little girl most of the time. It was so heart breaking for mommy to see you hurt, to hear your hurt cry and not be able to do anything about it. We finally got you on one medicine and while it helped a little, it wasn't enough for you. We changed the medicine to something stronger and that has significantly helped you a lot. You are back to your normal, happy, smiley self. I am so thankful for that because it was breaking my heart knowing you weren't feeling good. Now we just need to get your sleep schedule back on track! :) Mommy misses her sleep.

We started giving you rice cereal. It is so fun to watch your eat it. You are definitely a messy girl and you don't stop talking throughout the process which makes it only mildly difficult. I am looking forward to getting the green light to start feeding you veggies and some fruit! We feed you sitting in your Bumbo - seriously, that thing is a life saver and you love it! It again makes me realize how big you are getting though since you are able to sit up in in, reach for your toys, grab things, and just be such a cute little girl.

Skylar, I love you so much. And while I have gotten frustrated with the restless nights, I couldn't love you anymore. We are getting through your reflux together and I am praying that you are 100% very soon. You, little girl, are my world and I absolutely adore every little thing about you. I will forever love and cherish you and will always be here for you.
