Happy Birthday Babe!

Tomorrow is Beau's birthday, and I'm feeling SO bad that I'm not going to be with him :( I just wanted to let him know how much I love him and wish him a happy birthday. We will celebrate when you get here!
Beau is my best friend and the best husband and dad anyone could ask for. I know I'm totally spoiled to have him. He's the best help and support to me. He's always making me laugh (sometimes WITH him, sometimes AT him). He is such a hard worker, with some many talents; I know our family will always be taken care of. I hear people talk about how marriage is hard, but I have never felt that way. Being married to Beau is easy and so much fun. I was talking with my little sister the other day about fighting in marriage, and I was having a hard time trying to remember if Beau and I have ever fought. I'm sure we have disagreed before, but I can't think of a time. He's so patient and loving. One of the things that I love most about him is that he will never say a bad thing about anyone. He loves the Gospel and tries to better himself everyday. He's such a good example to me. Joshua and I love and miss you so much! I hope you have a Happy Birthday!

Two Weeks!!!!

Joshua and I are headed out today to go down and stay with our family in Nevada/Utah for TWO WEEKS! I seriously can't believe I'm doing this! I'm SO nervous! The longest Beau and I have ever been away from each other since the day we met was 3 days....and that was hard :( We are going to miss you Daddy! We love you.

*I took these of Joshua this morning so Beau would have some pictures to look at while we're gone.

Check out this pouty lip!

Sorry it's side ways, I don't know how to flip it.

Men of my dreams

Here are a few pictures we took yesterday for Josh's first Valentines Day. My mom sent him this little outfit and it says, "I'm the Man of your Dreams."

This is a picture of Beau and I on our trip to Cabo last March. It was taken on the deck of our hotel room which walked right out to the pool and the beach. We still talk about this trip all the time and can't wait to go again. It was probably the funnest thing we have ever done together. Starting right after we got married, we were both working (beau had 2 jobs) and we were both going to school so we didn't ever see each other. Beau was even working weekends :( So at the end of the semester we decided to go on a trip to relax and spend some time together. While we were there we were able to make the decision to move to Idaho. I don't know if we would have been able to do it if we hadn't had that time to get away from everything and everyone and really pray about it. Cabo was a life saver and a BLAST!

2 Months Old

Joshua is 2 months old! He is almost 13 lbs and 24 inches long. He's starting to get such a personality and he is SO dang cute! He loves to look at books while I read to him and LOVES the Itsy-Bitsy Spider song. He still sleeps like a crazy man. Beau calls him little Houdini because no matter how tight we wrap him up in his blanket with his arms down to his sides, he will get them out. He has decided he doesn't like his pacifier anymore and he'll spit it out the second I put it in. Now he just chews on his hands....All day. His hair is starting to lighten a lot so I'm not sure what color it is going to be anymore. I think he's going through a growth spurt right now, because he has wanted to eat ALL day today. I hope he is; they say that 13 is the magic number for sleeping through the night!
Here are just a few pictures of him over the last 2 weeks.

Caution: The following post was written at 4:30 am by a VERY tired (yet awake) woman.

I realised something a few minutes ago as I was laying in bed unable to get back to sleep after feeding the baby, and I thought, you better write this down because some day (hopefully) you may look back at this and laugh or maybe even some day you'll forget this feeling. And because I don't even own a journal, I'm blogging...
I've never been much of a napper; in fact, in my past life (prebaby) I preferred not to take naps at all because I usually woke feeling disoriented, and usually with a headache. However, it seems that for the last two months, my life has been a continuous string of two-hour power naps broken up by nursing and singing songs or reading children's books. Even going to bed at night is not really going to bed for the night, it's just a couple more power naps.
I also find it interesting that the book Baby Wise was written to help women get their babies on a schedule, but as I have been trying to follow it's counsel, all it has done is put ME on a schedule and has done basically nothing to schedule my very stubborn (and adorable) little boy (who just happens to be asleep right now).
My life schedule:
Feeding time
Wake time
Nap time
Over and over and over again...Which is why I'm wake...I just fed the baby, so it's "Wake Time" according to Baby Wise.
I'm not complaining! Being a mom is worth all the sleep deprivation in the world. I just think it's funny that once I was not a napper, and now naps are all I get.
