6 Months Down!

Bailey is 6 months old today, and I really can't believe it! She has her 6 month check-up on Friday so you will get the full 1/2 year update then, but for now here is a sneak peek at our Memorial Day weekend and how Bailey celebrated!

Best Friends Already

I love that they already LOVE each other, at least until Bailey tries to pull his ear off! One day they will be the best of friends, and I can't wait!

Happy Mother's Day and AZ Anniversary!

I know it is a little late, but here's MY Mother's Day post. So Mother's Day marked our 1 year Anniversary in AZ. That's right one year ago on Sunday we were driving out to our new home in the desert, and a fun little fact for you...we were also telling my family that we were expecting are little Miss Bailey (crazy how time flies). After a year and one AZ summer while pregnant I can tell you that we love it out here. The summers are a little warm, but we live in a great neighborhood and are in an amazing ward. It is a great place to raise our family and we can't wait to make many more memories out here!

Onto our Mother's Day activities...my Aunt and Uncle were visiting this past weekend, and that included their 7 (minus 1 on the mission) boys with spouses and kids...crazy, but so fun! So needless to say we had a full house for Mother's Day. My day started with finishing up the final touches for my talk, that's right Clint and I had to speak in church on Mother's Day. You would think that they would find a more experienced MOM for Mother's Day, but I think we did pretty good. After church we relaxed at home and got ready for the Kasper crew to arrive for dinner. Sometime before dinner Clint set out some gifts from him and Bailey which I saved to open right before I put Bailey to bed. After a few tears from reading Clint and Bailey's cards I opened up the gifts, and made out pretty well. The gift card was from Clint and the necklace was from Bailey...I love them both and I have to admit I was VERY impressed (props to the hubs). I love being a mom and especially Bailey's. She is such a blessing and I feel so blessed that Heavenly Father has trusted me to be her mother! I know that I have only been at this motherhood job for about 6 months, but I also know that we as mothers and women don't always get the validation that we deserve. So I will leave you with one of my favorite qoutes from my talk...Happy Mother's Day again to you all!

*For Satan has declared war on motherhood. He knows that those who rock the cradle can rock his earthly empire. And he knows that without righteous mothers loving and leading the next generation, the kingdom of God will fail. -Sheri L. Dew

I LOVE being her MOM!

Happy Mother's Day

It has been a crazy weekend, but I wanted to get on and give my mom a quick shout out for Mother's Day. Exactly one year ago today my mom opened her Mother's Day gift telling her that she was going to have another grandchild. Now one year later I am celebrating my first mother's day and have come to appreciate my mom more then I could ever imagine. She has always supported me and taught me to follow my dreams, but more importantly she has taught me how to be a good righteous mother. I am so greatful for her example and the sacrifices she has made on mybehalf...I love her so much and am thankful Heavenly Father put her in my life. Happy Mother's Day Mom...I love you!

Because She Can

Bailey was watching me do dishes the other day, and when I looked over at her this is what I saw...

I guess she decided she needed to try to fit the entire paci in her mouth...love this girl!
