Where has the time gone???? My baby is 9 months old already..

Wow it has been forever since I have updated this thing. So I am sorry for the long post and all the picture over load. Well in the middle of July me and Audrey decided to take a 3 week vacation with my parents. They were nice enough to let us tag along we had so much fun. We went to Utah first and then we went to Wyoming. We spent a lot of time hanging out with my aunt Marilyn, cousins Jessi "Scott" and Jason "Lindsey". We went to the movies and shopping and just hung out. Then we went to Wyoming to see my Uncle Tom " Shirley" cousins Ashley and Janice, Grandma Hall and then my niece Kaylynne was there too. We were picking her up and also watching her do barrels with Rhonda my uncle Tom's horse and then rodeos, parades, carnivals and then we watched Kaylynne and Janice show pigs. Kaylynne sold her pig for almost a thousand dollars. We had so much fun and it was nice to be there. I went horse back riding with my aunt Shirley. I had never seen my Uncles place it was beautiful. My baby girl finally got her helmet after I fought the insurance for a month and a half it was ridiculous. She is doing so good with it. The first week she had it on it grew 5 centimeters which is awesome. I'm so happy her head is shaping wonderfully. I am grateful for my family and friends for all the love and support. I am so grateful for my husband he is my ROCK I don't know what I would do with out him. I love my little family.... We also got the chance in September to have a visit from my Uncle Harrison we don't get to see him very much. So it was nice to see him and catch up. We also went to Dos Gringos with my brother for his birthday. We had a lot of fun. We also went to a football game at my old high school Mesa High. We had a lot of fun with Jay and Brittany thanks for inviting us. I can't believe it my Baby girl is 9 months old already. She is growing up way to fast. She weighs 22.13lbs and she is 28 inches. She loves to smile, eat veggie strips or anything she finds on the floor:), she says mamamama and is definitely a mommy's girl, she is crawling all over the place, she is almost pulling her self all the way up but is taking her time, she sleeps through the night which is awesome for me, I call her my cutie patootie, I love being a mom and she is such a happy girl most of the time.

Mixed emotions

I forgot to say in my last post that my little Audrey has to get a helmet for her head. The doctor said that towards the end of my pregnancy she was probably on my pelvis really hard. So one side of her head is way flatter than the other. I will find out more Tuesday> Hopefully only a month or two that she has to wear it. We shall see. I have just been trying to hold my head up with the two things she has to go through the next couple months. I am grateful to have the gospel in my life that helps me stay strong and have faith.

Its been so long.... My baby girl is 6 months already..

I love my little family so much. Audrey turned 6 months old today. It is crazy how fast she is growing up. I'm grateful to have her in my life and my wonderful husband Kendal. We have been so busy this summer having fun with our families and friends. Audrey got to go to the lake for the first time when she was a little over 4 months old she loved it. We went with our good friends Claire and Dale. We love living out here in San Tan Valley its almost been 2 years out here. Kendal is staying busy with work and school. I'm staying busy also I just started to go back to school I am going to get my associates degree, working a little and being a MOMMY.. Which I love being able to take care of her everyday and watch her grow. She has such a personality I love it. She is always smiling. She sleeps all night and she has rolled over a few times but she doesn't like being on her belly so she gets frustrated. I am trying to be patient with it. She loves to sit up and play with her toys we just have to still watch her a little cause she gets so excited and falls over. I will try to be better at blogging...

My precious little Audrey.

I have been so blessed being able to raise little girl. She is so much fun. She has grown so fast. I can't believe she is almost 3 months old. Time sure does fly by. She loves when her Daddy comes home from work, she just looks him and smiles and coos back at him when he makes noises. I love it and I love my husband and so grateful for his hard work. We have been super busy the last few months. Kendals brother Jason left on his mission, Sarah had her baby girl Raylee a month early. We have been to Snowflake a few times. Also been hanging out with family. We went to the lake for our annual bbq with friends. It was a lot of fun. Audrey is sitting up by her self in her bumbo chair. She is full of smiles all the time and giggles every once in a while. We are doing great we love our little family. So glad that we have such a great family and friends.

My dad does this every kid but she is still to young to stand but he likes to try...

I love my little chunky monkey.... We are always calling her that or stinker bug

1 week old already.............

8 Pounds 3 Ounces
20 Inches Long

It is such a blessing to us to finally have her here in our home. She brings such a sweet spirit to us. I am grateful for all the love and support from our friends and family. Well here it goes. I was supposed to get induced the 15th at 8 oclock that night but they didn't have any beds open. So they told me to wait for a phone call. I was up all night I couldn't sleep. They called me Sunday morning the 16th at 5:30 am and told me to come in. We got there at 6 and got all checked in. They started me on Petosin at 7. I was only dilated to a 1 and a half. I felt some contractions but not much. At 12:30 Doctor McNeal came in and broke my water then I got the epidural at 1. So they kind of just kept checking on me. So at 4:30 Doctor McNeal came in and said its time to start pushing. So I pushed for an hour and thirty eight minutes. I had Audrey at 6:08 pm. When she came out she had the cord wrapped around her neck and she had a knot in the cord too. It was so scary cause we could have lost her inside me with out even knowing. Im grateful she was ok. Its an awesome feeling being a mom. I love being home with her and everyday the changes we see in her. Im grateful that my mom stayed with me the first week to help and then grateful for Kendals mom for staying a couple days to help too.
