Big News!!

....... baby # 2 on the way!!!!!..........

Ehhh........... just trickin'. We do have big news though- we're building a house! It's going to look a little somethin like this! Minus the stuff on the porch :)
After looking into multiple options we've decided to build a home with Fieldstone Homes in Lehi. The process is already well under way! Yesterday we went to Fieldstone's Design Center and had to make multiple decisions on the specifics of cabinets, flooring, stairwells, doors, baseboards, counter tops, appliances, outlets, stucco, colors, etc. Soooo many choices and the good news is Joe and I still like each other! Haha It took us about 3 hours but we finally agreed on all the decisions and had to do a little give and take on what we wanted. Hayes got to come along for the ride and was perfectly happy the whole time. We're supposed to close at the end of November sometime, so we'll be in our very own home for Christmas this year! (Actually we'll be in Blanding but still...) Yay! We took some photos on Joe's iphone at the design center to document the experience.

Joe looking at the porch light options, exterior stone options, and the billion different flooring options.

Some of the different choices. Hopefully it all comes together nicely!
Hayes likes this door :)
Now that it is all designed we're super excited to see it go up! We'll be sure to post updates on the progress!

Hey guys,

Just sending you all an invitation to try out Varolo! In short, you watch commercials online to earn money and then you also earn more money by the commercials that your "village" (friends) watch.

Ball Game

Joe got some tickets to the Salt Lake Bees game for being the BEES KNEES! J/k I dunno why he got them but he did something good at work so we decided to go to a game last Monday. We went with some work friends and it was really fun! I love to watch baseball and softball. It makes me miss playing, that's for sure!

Bedtime for Hayes!!

3 Months

Hayes is 3 months old today! His little personality shines through more and more everyday. He is so sweet. If I had to name his 3 favorite things I would say they are, smiling, "talking", and tooting. haha. He will smile and talk to anyone who will pay attention to him. Hayes is on the verge of rolling over- he usually gets stuck on his little arm and gets frustrated and gives up.... Let's hope that's not always his resolve :) You'll make it over soon buddy! He is usually pretty content just laying on the floor with his little play gym and trying to grab things. It's so fun watching him develop motor skills. I got so excited the first time he reached out and actually grabbed his toy. One thing I will say is Hayes is no miracle sleeper, he is still waking up every 3 or 4 hours. If someone has a secret they're not sharing with me please give it up. I would give an arm and a leg for a full nights sleep! Although he just eats for 10 minutes and goes right back to sleep. Hayes just gets cuter everyday and wins my heart over with his charming little eyebrow raises and smiles about every five minutes. I'm so grateful for Joe who works so hard making it possible for me to stay home and be a full time mom for this little guy. We love you Hayes! Thanks for joining our family!

In these pictures I have to introduce Hayes's little giraffe. He LOVES the thing.
Look at him pose so perfectly with his little buddy.

He likes to just look at him and touch his soft arms...

And sometimes eat him...

So one day I look up from my computer and I see this.... Joe and Hayes just chillin' eating a sandwich like its totally normal to be wearing that ridiculous sombrero. I had to take a picture haha. Most people don't get to see the silly side of Joe like I do. Seriously, he's kinda crazy :)
