Family Pictures!

Happy Holidays! Yeppp its been that long since we've posted. Well lots has been happening for us these last couple of months. The biggest of all being that we bought our 1st house!!! We couldn't be more thrilled to be on our own again but are so grateful to both our parents, mostly Kyle's for letting us live with them for so long and for being so good to us!

Another big thing for us is that we had our 1st Family pictures taken the middle of October. We just got them back so I wanted to share them with you!!

I hope you are all doing well and that your enjoying the cold weather, or cool weather by AZ standards!!! Talk to you soon! Hopefully :)

Thanks so much to Ashley Madsen for doing such a great job!!!

Scrub a dub dub

It always amazes me everytime I get on here to blog again how much time has gone by! I'm even more amazed with how fast James is growing. He turned 6 wks old yesterday...I don't know where time has gone. He is just so adorable and cute! I'm even ok when people think he's a girl because girls are usually cuter! Just 1 1/2 wks ago we were finally able to give James his first REAL bath which we of course documented for years of went as follows.

At first he was hanging out, thinking it was O.K. That quickly changed to...

being REALLY upset. That continued until...
he finally got his hair combed, his favorite pass time. :)

Needless to say we are having a blast watching him grow and seeing how he changes everyday!

Life with James

Time has certainly flown since James was born. Yesterday he turned 3 wks old! He is growing so fast...literally. He has gained 2 lbs and grown 2 inches since we was born, I'm afraid we're going to have ourselves a little chunky monkey! I am just glad he is healthy and adorable!

I love cuddling with my lil boy! 13 days old
James, he's so hot this year! His Magnum look in the works. (Zoolander lover)

Kyle and I are loving being parents even despite the sleep deprivation! Everyday is exciting to be able to see how he is growing and changing!

Could be Worse : /

Ok so its not exactly my birthday (that will be in June) but I saw this on Melissa's blog and wanted to see what it said about me. For the most part its accurate, but a bit over the tops. Your thoughts? And nope, I won't get upset if you agree with it! :) I was excited to see that April is my power month though because thats when our little guy comes!

You Are a Despot
You're dominant and powerful. You always need to be in charge.
While others respect your competence, you can be a bit of a dictator.
Hard working and serious, you never let yourself down.
You are exact and accurate - and you expect others to be the same way.

Your strength: You always get the job done

Your weakness: You're a perfectionist to a fault

Your power color: Gray

Your power symbol: Checkmark

Your power month: April
