Raining Babies

    On Thursday September 1st Jordan and Nicole welcomed Jaxson and Hunter into the world 2 months early! They were each right around 3 lbs and are the cutest tiniest little guys! Then we got a surprise when almost a week later on September 7th we got a text message from Brett at 6 in the morning and they were holding a baby. At first I thought whose baby are they holding? They were holding their little lady, Rebecca, who decided to come a month early! She is just beautiful!
    We’ve been able to go up to the hospital quite a bit with Jordan and Nicole to love on the boys-we feel so lucky to be able to go! They are doing so great! They have both gained weight, are off their oxygen and have moved on to bottles. We haven’t been able to meet Rebecca yet but we can’t wait!
    Its pretty crazy that when Ter and I were married 2 years ago there weren’t any grandkids on his side yet and now there are 6 under 2!

Go Bengals!

On Saturday we took Bryke to his first football game. We went with our friends the Soderquists and the Bakers to an ISU game. It was a pretty good game and we had a lot of fun! Bryke loved it and did pretty good for most of the game-but we didn’t make through the end of the game…not because of Bryke though! We left so Ter could see every second of the BYU game! He has a love/hate relationship with those cougars. He was raised on them but oh my goodness sometimes I think he is going to have a heart attack while watching them! Being a life-long fan is stressful-I wouldn’t know I’m more of the bandwagon type and proud of it :)

I always liked football but being married to a total football loving man has upped my exposure to the longest game in sports :) and I’m ok with that. Here’s to many more memories watching the game with my boys!

Eastern Idaho State Fair

On Monday we went to Blackfoot for the Eastern Idaho State fair. It was Bryke’s first time at a fair and my first time at a fair other than the Twin Falls fair. This one was huge! Bryke loved all the animals and but I think was more interested in all the people-the fair brings out an interesting bunch. It was a little overwhelming and I’m going to have to say that I’m still a pretty big fan of the Twin fair. We got a yummy drink and by the time we were ready for a treat Bryke was way ready to go so I didn’t get my fair food but we came home and had Navajo tacos and scones and then peaches and ice cream the next night so I think I’m covered til next year :)

Labor Day 2011

   We got to spend the day being spoiled by my parents! Ter has class on Saturdays this semester so we hung out until he was done and then drove to Idaho Falls to go to the Bodies Exhibit. It was amazing and just crazy! My favorite part was the blood vessel section. They injected this dye stuff (very official term I know) into the vessels which then hardened and then the rest of the body was dissolved away. You wouldn’t believe the amount of blood vessels in our body!
     After the exhibit we went out to lunch at Famous Dave’s where we got our fill of the most amazing bbq off a trash can lid! When we couldn’t possibly eat anymore we headed home and then the guys started watching football so my Mom and I snuck away and I got some quality mama time in. It was so much fun to be able to spend the day with my parents! We are so lucky that they live close enough to drive over for the day. Thanks for such a great day Mom and Dad!

At 7 months:
I have two teeth, that were awful to get!
I sit up all by myself
I reach for people now, sometimes people I don't even know which kinda freaks my mom out
I got sick for the first time with a fever and that wasn’t fun for me or my mama and papa
I babble bababa and mamama all the time
I love to move my hand against my mouth and go ahhhhh
