I can't believe next Saturday my little boy will be a one year old! Time sure does go by fast. He is so much fun and full of personality! I honestly can't remember life without him. I love you Ammon :)
Yesterday I ran my first half marathon with my sister in law Devyn. We have been training for it for a few months now but running 13.1 miles and thinking I can run 13.1 miles were two different things :) Wow. It was tough but really rewarding to do. I was fine until about mile 10 and then we started running up hill and I think thats where I felt like my legs were going to fall off. After the race I told myself that I would never run one ever again but I think I probably will. Not any time soon but I like the sense of accomplishment I felt afterwards. Thank you Devyn and running with me!
I am turning our spare bedroom into Ammons toddler room for when he's a little older. These are some things I've been working on. I still have to paint the circles though. I'll post more pictures when the room is all done.
A couple weeks ago I was released from primary and was put into Young Womens. To be honest, I was scared and didn't know if I would be able to do it. Its been a HUGE blessing though. I am so glad that I got this calling and I know that it will strenghten my testimony.
Ammon has always been a horrible sleeper. He would wake up at least 5 times a night and the best he's ever done is wake up only 2 times a night. His naps are bad too. He only will sleep around 30 minutes before his little eyes pop open! I haven't had a good nights sleep in 7 months! Well times have changed my friends!.... Ammon is finally sleeping through the night!! I know you guys probably don't care but its so nice being able to catch up on some sleep! the last two night he has slept 12 hours straight and he took a 1 1/2 hour nap yesterday. I feel like a new human being!! Hopefully this new habit will continue :)
Congratulations to my brother Kaden who graduated on May 5th. He graduated in bio chemistry with a gpa of 3.95. Wow! I wish I got some of the smart genes in the family but I think Kaden took all of them. I am so proud of him and I know he's worked so hard to get where he is today! Love you Kaden :)
I've been feeling really emotional the last few days and I feel overwhelmingly thankful for my husband. He's been out of town since Thursday and I didn't realize how much he really does for me until now. The day he left I got sick with a cold. Of course Ammon caught my cold so least to say this has been a horrible weekend. It makes me feel very very blessed to have a husband who I know loves me and who is always there for me. I don't know how single moms survive because I almost didn't make it through this weekend. It makes me feel sad for the people who have lost their husbands and still have to raise their children by themselves. I honestly don't know how people can do that. Cody does so much for me and I love him very much. I am so excited for him to be home with me again. Three nights without my husband is WAY too long! Here is some random pictures of Ammon :) He's almost mastered sitting up by himself and he has disovered how to bounce! It's a nonstop thing now.
Every two months I go get ammons pictures taken at jc pennys and everytime I go Ammon will NOT smile in his pictures. He just stares at the camera with a "durrrrrr" look on his face. These are his 4 month pictures. For some reason I can't upload his 2 month ones but he's not smiling in those either :)
Codys wrestling team took first in Region last night. Thats the first time that Fremonts wrestling team has won region EVER. I am so proud of Cody and happy for his team. They are a bunch of hard working boys who deserved to take first place :)
Last Sunday Cody had the opportunity to give Ammon a name and a blessing. I'm so glad that I married someone so sweet and someone with the priesthood. I felt so proud when Cody took him up there to be blessed. I'm thankful that both of our families could be there to celebrate with us and to be with Ammon on his special day.
My husband is the head wrestling coach at Fremont and they are doing an amazing job this year! I am so proud of him and his team :) He's brought home alot of trophies and last week they beat Weber high for the first time ever. They are ranked 2nd in state now. I am very proud of him and the hard work he puts into his job.
Life these last few weeks have been crazy crazy crazy!! I started back to work on January 2nd and to be honest, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I only broke down once :) The first week was stressful because Ammon wouldn't take a bottle and my poor mother in law had to feed him with a dropper. After alot of practice and buying 5 different bottle tops we found one he liked. It just happened to be one of the more expensive kinds! Ammon has expensive taste :) I'm just thankful I get to leave him with someone I trust and I don't have to put him in a daycare. He is starting to sleep in his crib now and goes to bed between 7 and 8. Last night he slept from 7:30 to 2:00 before he woke up again. It was nice! New things about Ammon...
* He's discoved his fingers. He shoves them into his mouth every chance he gets and already sucks his thumb. * He loves to talk. Especially when he first wakes up in the morning. * Smiling!! my little boy loves to smile! He officially started laughing yesterday. * He hates his car seat. It's definetaly a pain in the butt! I thought all babies loved their car seats but Ammon wants nothing to do with it. * Ammon loves to look around at everything and anything. He gets so excited when he looks at himself in the mirror.
I weighed myself yesterday and I am now at my prepregnancy weight! Took me long enough! Things are going great people! Things are going great...
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!
