1 year

Yesterday was Mine and James anniversary. We have been married for 1 year, and its been an interesting year. We both have learned and grown so much (partly because of where we live). It really has been a great year looking back, and the best thing about it all would have to be Emjae. We may not have wanted to have a baby right away, but she is such a bundle of joy that if we had to do it over again we wouldn't change a thing. (except for where we live). Thanks to my amazing sisters in law I was able to have some milk stored up so james and I could drop her off at tj and doras and go out on a date. We went to the Olive Garden and then to go see Black Knight, the new batman movie. At dinner it felt a little empty with out Emjae and we couldn't stop talking about her. After the movie got out we realized it had been 6 hours and this mom had to get to her baby. Not only cuz I missed her, but I was starting to feel that Emjae really needed to eat. Luckily we got there when we did, cuz aunt dora was about to feed her again and this mom would have been really sore all the way home. James and I had a really good time and are very grateful to all those who helped us have a date. I love you James and am so excited to see what's in store for us through out the eternitys!!

Emjaes First Swim

So Thursday last week was the first time Emjae got to go swimming.
We all went over to Tj and Dora's and went swimming and had dinner.
Emjae was only in the pool for a little bit because when we got over there the pool was mostly shaded and it was starting to get a little breezy. It seemed like she had fun.
Of course James was having fun. He became a lizard on the wall, a whale, a dolphin, an alligator, a hippo, and of course he was even rambo. I love the fact that there are never any real dull moments with him. Thanks Tj and Dora for the swim!!!!

Haha, just kidding about the title. Its just been awhile so I thought I would do a little ketchup (catch-up). Well things are still going. Amy, Emjae and I all enjoyed our trip to Utah. Of course I ended up not seeing any of the people I wanted to, but thats all good. Grandma Great got to see Emjae again and Paiges birthday was fun.


We pretty much spent the whole day with Linda and Paige on her birthday.
Then when the boys got home we spent more time with all of them. Paige wanted a Dora plate so Amy bought her a Dora plate, bowl and cup.Photobucket

Emjae did so well traveling. She slept all the way from St. George to Spanish Fork which is around 3 1/2 hr drive. Even while we were up in Utah she did so well. We kept getting her in and out of the vehicle and there was one day were I fed her maybe 1 minute in one of the dressing rooms at the mall twice but over a 5 hour period. I could not have asked for a better baby.

James is looking for a job right now. And well we have been in vegas since Thursday. He went and filled out an app with an electrical union out here to start as a apprentice. He is scheduled for a test on Oct 20, but they do the testing every monday and if they have any openings then he may be able to squeeze in. So we are praying that there will be an opening tomorrow so he can take the test.

Oh, I also have my car back now. Erik did what he could and helped us out for acouple months by using it and making payments, but unfortunately he no longer can do that. Now we have the car back and well I was looking at it and I am surprised that James and Paul did not get a blow out on their way back to Vegas. My car needs 4 new tires. So until we get money for that, the car will be staying in Vegas.

I know that everything will work out though. Heavenly Father has a wierd since of humor at times with the trials and lessons he tries to teach us, but I know that I am sometimes so stubborn he has to teach me over and over.

I just want to say that I am very grateful to my families. For all the support, help and guidance that they have given to Me and James. With out families things would be more difficult. So thank you to all of those that have helped us!!!!

Sad Day

So Emjae went and got her 2 month shots. :( I almost cried. I had never heard her cry like she did. Her face turned purple and then she let out this blood curdling scream. The first one was bleeding pretty bad, and the second shot she just cried even louder. The sad thing is that she was suppose to have 3 shots and 1 oral but apparently there is a shortage on one of the shots, so I have to call next week to see if they have the shot in and then I have to take her back to go get it. Maybe I will send dad next time. I gave her some infant tylenol and I fed her when we got home and she is knocked out right now. My poor sweetheart.
