About US

Nate and I have been married for 2 and a half years now now which has gone by pretty fast! In January we were blessed to have Brynlee join our family. Nate works as a software engineer at Novell and I am so grateful for the hard worker he is and how he goes to work every day to support us. He is the best husband to me and the best dad to Brynlee and she can't get enough of him. I stay at home with Brynlee along with doing esthetics part time. And Brynlee just stays busy keeping us smiling everyday! We couldn't be a happier little family!

Family Fun!

This past couple weeks we were so lucky to have my sister Bri and her family come up from Arizona for a little visit. We loved having them here and were able to do a lot of fun things. We went to Chuck E. Cheese, went to the mall and played on their play place, the girls loved playing with eachother and pushing eachother on the princess bike, we watched movies and had a lot of fun together! We are so thanful they just live in Arizona so we are able to see them occasionaly, although it'd be nice to see them more then we do! We already miss having them here!

Brynlee is now 13 months. I can not believe it! I haven't updated what she has been up to lately so I figured it was about time.
-The top picture is of her with her bear. It is her favorite thing and every time she see's it she gets so excited. Lately she has been sick and keeps waking up at night, so the other night in the middle of the night, she would not stop crying, so I gave her the bear and she gave it the biggest hug and wouldn't let go of it. She went right to sleep after that!
-She has so many different facial expressions. The one she does the most lately is makes a big O face and puts her hands up to her face!
-Loves, loves dogs. Whenever she sees one she starts laughing, kicking and moving her feet, and pointing to it getting so excited. She will pet them slowly but sometimes if the dog gets to close she squeezes onto you for dear life and gets a little nervous.
-Anytime she eats something sweet such as a cookie, she says MMMM. Loves her food still! Although she is in this phase where she thinks it is fun to throw her food on the floor if she doesn't want to eat anymore of it.
-Will walk around furniture and doesn't sit down as soon as we let go of one hand while walking with her. She balances great by herself until she realizes she isn't holding on to something then she just sits herself down. I have tried bribing her with candy, food, you name it, and she still refuses to walk! One day :)
-Is trying to say so many words. She will point to things and try to say what it is, even though it sounds nothing like it. After she says something and points to it and I say yes, that's your blanket and she get's so excited that I understand her!
-She is in her front facing car seat and likes it. At first she loved it then she realized she could see us better and got really mad if we ignored her. She is better now but still likes the attention!
-She makes us so happy and I love seeing her grow and develop and learn new things everyday! -She is really easy going and I really am lucky to have Brynlee and get to play with her everyday. Don't get me wrong, she definitely has her days but I just love her so much!
