Dearest Reese,
I just wanted to inform you of a few things and apologize for some others in this letter here. So FIRST, I would like to tell you that I am sorry that I pushed you out of that warm womb and into this crazy household. I know you miss being curled up into the fetal position because everytime I try and burp you, you get in that position thinking that I might just put you back. Not gonna happen. And I know you miss your pool and your rope. I am certainly sorry that you feel like a bobble head right now. Your neck will be stronger soon and mommy wont let your head fall off. I am also sorry that its hard to uncross your eyes sometimes. Just know you wont see double for long. You do not have two mommies. And you WILL get control of your arms and legs soon. I am sorry that you were pulling your own hair tonight and you did not know how to stop. That was sad. i am also sorry that the inside of my upper arms and my neck dont produce milk. I know you think they do, but they dont. So, I am NOT sorry that I want to kiss you non stop. I just love your little expressions and your little newborn noises, even when they wake me several times a night. i love that you try to suck on Leah's face everytime she holds you and that you give your two big sisters smiles even if its just gas. That makes them so happy. I love the peach fuzz that covers your body and every perfect finger and body part. I love that you have one of your Daddy's dimples on your right cheek. You are so lucky because I always wanted a dimple. Thank you for being a sweet , peaceful and perfect little person who has made me calmer and want to be better. I love you Reese...more than you will ever know. Love, MOM

Bear Lake or Bust!!!!

Something that I love about Matt's family is that they are really good at taking FUN trips. We have done several family reunions at some awesome cabins in some beautiful places. We tried out Bear Lake a couple of years ago and it was one big party. Six out of the seven siblings all came which means lots of kiddos too. Hayley loves being with her cousins. I love being with my in-laws..but especially their TOYS. So here are some pics. We are heading up there in a few days and adding Dave's new boat to the mix. Yahoo!!!!

" It matters not our circumstance, be we humble or arrogant, poor or rich, free or enslaved, learned or ignorant, loved or forsaken, we can address Him. We need no appointment. Our solicitation can be brief or can occupy all the time needed. It can be an extended expression of love and gratitude or urgent plea for help. He has created numberless cosmos and populatedthem with worlds, yet you and i can talk with Him personally, and He will ever answer." -Richard G Scott

A Glimpse of My Life

First of all, I could just sit and hold Reese all day. She is my little peanut! OOOOH, I am so in love! And my cute Leah...WHAT do I do? Right when I am about to go CRAZY, she does something funny , like this. Maybe she got cold? We will never know.

Back to normal..almost

I am soooooo happy NOT to be preggers anymore. I still have quite a bit of shaping up to do, but I feel great!
