Time sure does go by fast. Ammon is already two months old and I have no idea where the time has gone! I feel like he is growing up way too fast. He can smile now and holds his head up all by himself. He is starting to like the tub and likes to have the water running. He thinks that is pretty cool. He also really likes to be naked which hopefully he will grow out of :) He sure is getting fat and has a double chin and has little rolls on his thighs. He is starting to sleep better too. I go back to work on January 2nd and I am NOT excited at all. I used to think moms who cried when they went back to work were dumb, but I can see why they do now. Being a mom has changed me into a different person. I don't know what I was doing with my life before I became a mom but I feel like I have found my purpose now. It seriously is the best thing in the world and I wouldn't trade it for anything :)
Today I gave Ammon his first bath. It didn't go exactly how I thought it would go. He seemed to really like the water at first but as soon as I got his hair wet he started screaming. After his bath I put him in a clean diaper and some fresh clean clothes. of course right after that he totally exploded in his diaper :) then right after that he spit up so hard that it came out of his nose and all over his clean clothes. so much for giving him a bath. total waste of time :)
Yesterday I went and watched my sister Kenzie run a 50 mile race. 50 MILES!!!! I can't even run twenty feet without wanting to pass out. She started at 5:00 am and ended around 3:45 pm. I am very proud of her and a little jealous to be honest. How many people can say that they ran 50 miles straight????
I've noticed lately that I've turned into a nasty old hag these last few weeks. I'm blaming it on the out of control hormones but maybe I really am turning into a hag for reals. Who knows?? Anyways these are my pet peeves as of late. ..
#1: The one upper..... I absolutely hate when your telling a story and somebody has to ruin it with a better one. Drives me nuts. for example.... Me: "yeah I've had kidney stones before. They were really really painful." Other person: "You think that's bad.. Try having kidney stones while going through chemo." Me: "hmmmm.. Well I guess I can't top that one. (thanks for ruining my story.")
#2: Peoples unnecessary comments.... Why do people insist on saying things that are just random and inappropriate?? I swear when you become pregnant people think it's ok to say stupid stuff to you. for example... a) "Wow Mckelle you sure are chunking out" b) "your just getting poochier and poochier everyday" c) (Three weeks before my due date) "your still here??!!" d) "Look how big your getting" It's comments like these that makes me want to go psycho and punch everybody in the face.
#3: I hate shopping at Walmart for two reasons. Reason #1: People don't even look when they cross the street. They just go. They randomly appear out of nowhere and just walk right in front of you like they own the place. At least look when you cross the street people! Reason #2: Why did Walmart build 30 checkout stands when they only open like 3 total??? I hate standing in line for an hour when I only have one item. Walmart sucks.
#4: It really bothers me when you can see ear wax coming out of someones ears. Apparently good hygiene isn't a priority to them. How hard is it to clean your ears every once in awhile eh??
This is the babies room so far.... I still have some work to do on it though. It's hard to make a boys room look cute without it looking like a girls room. I still have some finishing touches to do but this is it :)
Cody and I have done alot of camping this summer. We went with my family and then we went the very next week by ourselves. Our plan was to camp in Box Elder campground but when we got there it was full. So we drove around and found a perfect spot by Hyrum. It was very secluded and the best part was that it was free :) We had alot of fun and it was nice to just relax. Of course my camera died right when we got there but I managed to take a few pictures before it did. We even saw a deer with its little baby. so cute.
Cody and I met on a blind date on February 28, 2008. We dated a full year before we were married in the Logan temple on March 12th, 2009. He teaches P.E and Spanish at Fremont high school and also coaches Wrestling. I get to stay home with our cute little boy Ammon who was born on October 27th 2011. Life is great!
