Jett Update

I have heard some criticism that I have way more photos of Dawson recently than I do of Jett. The reason that this is happening is that Jett sleeps quite a bit. It seems like every time I have my camera out he is asleep and to be honest you can only take so many photos of a sleeping baby before it gets old. So here are a couple that I snapped the other day of Jett. He is now about a month and a half old.

Lots Going On...

Well we have had a lot going on the last week or so... The boys and I went to Spokane with my mom to see my grandparents that live in Liberty Lake. They had not yet seen Jett so we thought we'd take a little trip to visit. We had so much fun with them Dawson was showing off for them and they loved holding "the new baby". My grandma made sure that I knew that the name Jett was a "unique name", she is so cute I love her! Also, we headed to Ephrata and visited my parents this last weekend since we don't get over there much. Dawson was able to spend some time with his cousins... he loves them so much and had so much fun! This last week I received my new stroller and was able to run/walk it felt so good but made me sore! I feel so out of shape but I LOVE it when you feel like you have actually worked out. Anyway this last week has been great!

My Goal...

Okay, I am doing it... I am going to lose the weight that I gained when I got married and had babies. I just bought this stroller that might help me. To get to the weight I would like to be at I need to lose about 21 pounds. It has been very frustrating to not be able to do anything physical for over a month now. I feel like if I say it out loud and have someone to be accountable to I will actually get it done. So... I will be documenting my progress from time to time. To reach this goal I will be watching what I eat and exercising. I do not have the exact plan because I cannot yet do exactly the type of exercising I would like to do... so for now I will be eating better and trying to be as physically active as possible. In the longer term my plan is to get on the P90X program. My mom is currently on this program and lost about 20 pounds. She reached her goal weight and more importantly she looks so toned and HOTT... in addition to that my brother is also on the program but not really to lose weight just to tone up and bulk they both look AMAZING! The point is I know that the program works and my goal is to reach my goal weight and look great by October. That program is set up to take about 90 days however, I am giving myself a little extra time since I will not be able to start the program right away. WISH ME LUCK!

Dawson 18-19 month Photos

Finally got some pictures of Dawson... I feel like I can rest now. I wish I could get him to smile a little nicer... it's hard when I am the one behind the camera. He's still pretty cute though.

New Pictures & A Big Thanks

PHOTOS...Here are a few of the latest photos... I still need to get my mom up here to help me do some really nice photos of Jett. Just had to get some done so that I have something to share. Things have been a little hectic lately to say the least.

A BIG THANKS! I have to share my great gratitude for everyone who has pitched in and helped with meals, children and for all of the emails and phone calls offering comfort and assistance. This last year has been full of many challenges and in the last month or so I feel that I have received so many blessings from my Heavenly Father that greatly outweigh those challenges and trials. I am generally a very independent person so through these times I have really had to humble myself and accept help from the angels that have been sent to me to perform services in my life. Our family has been amazing however, I also have to share with you the amazing blessing that is my ward family at church. It is mainly among these people that have emerged the angels that I could not have survived without in the last month. I received emails, calls, prayers, visits, meals, gifts, flowers, childcare and dozens of other offers for help. I could not have survived without my ward family. Although my life is still a bit hectic and I am still trying to fully recover from my hospital stay I am feeling much better and have come to the realization that we are loved. We are eternally grateful to those of you who have assisted us in one way or another. Thank you!
