3 months old

Greyson turned 3 months on January 18th!  We don't have another doctor appointment until he's 4 months, so I don't know his stats, but here some new stuff about him!

  • He's still exclusively breast fed.  I can't believe I made it this long, considering the start we had!
  • He's still consistantly sleeping through the night!
  • He's discovered his hands, and thinks they taste mighty yummy!  He'll even hold onto his toys if we put them in his hands.
  • He can laugh!  Oh can that boy laugh.  And then I laugh too.  I can't help it!  It's the sweetest sound in the world!
  • He got to meet his Auntie Seville, and he loves her so!
  • He got lots of quality time with Grandma this last month!
Which of his 3 month pictures are your favorite?

20 random facts

OK, so I wanted to write a little more about myself, so I got some ideas on topics to write about, so here goes!  This post is 20 random facts about myself.

  1. I cannot do scary movies.  Not even a little bit.  I will have nightmares and have to sleep with the lights on, and do that awkward run and jump into bed so that nothing under the bed can attack me.  And if by chance I do watch something a little scary, I have to watch a happy, funny movie after to dispel the feeling of terror and gloom.  
  2. I rescued a baby kitten when I was about 5 or 6 years old.  I remember he didn't have a tail, and for days, we heard him meowing, but thought it was a crow cause he meowed kinda funny.  We named him Crow.
  3. My parents were baptized LDS (Mormons) when I was 4 years old.  I remember my first Sunday school... I was scared to be in my own class, so I went to the older class to be with the one little girl I knew there.
  4. Technically my first kiss was when I was 9 years old... The boy tried to kiss me, but I turned my head cause I was shy, and he got my ear.  Then he ran away very fast.  LOL!  No one tried that again til I was 17.  
  5. My first real kiss was when I was 17.  It was underwater.  Cool, huh?
  6. When I was a baby, our family dogs, two German Shepherds named Tico and Fancy, guarded my crib and wouldn't let anyone but my parents near me.  They were my best friends til they died.  I remember both of those days.  I cried my eyes out.
  7. Not much made me cry harder than when an animal died.  I remember sobbing for days whenever a pet died.  I also remember watching The Never Ending Story, and when the horse sunk in the mud, I asked if he died.  My mom said horses cant breath under the mud, so what did I think.  I cried uncontrollably until the end of the movie when I saw the horse come back...oh, I guess that was a spoiler alert if you're 25 years behind...
  8. I was a member of the Pony Club.  I loved riding horses.
  9. When I was going to ride my horse Ebony in my first parade, she spooked at the fire truck and reared and fell backwards onto me.  I missed the parade, but got to wheel myself around the hospital for a while.  It was just a sprain.
  10. As a freshman in high school, I tried out for Concert Choir, which was the most advanced, and first semester became one of the 3 first freshmen to ever be accepted into it.  That was pretty awesome.
  11. I was quoted in my junior yearbook as saying I wanted 7 kids when I grew up.  They left out the part that made it clear I was being sarcastic and funny, saying it was just cause I wanted to name them all.  I looked like the crazy octomom lady.
  12. I went to Japan and China when I was 11, and was an exchange student to Spain and France when I was 16.  Those trip sparked my intense love of traveling to new places.  I am dying to go to Scotland, Ireland, Greece and Italy.
  13. Ages 19-23 I made a lot of mistakes in life.  There's a lot I would do differently if I could back then.  I can't say I was always the best friend, or the best person, but I'd like to say those experiences refined me and turned me into a better person.  To all those I wronged back then, I am truly sorry.
  14. I've lived in several different locations in California, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, Nevada, and The Caribbean.
  15. I was deathly shy when I was little.  Then I forced myself to grow out of it for a while.  Since I've been married, I seem to have reverted back to being really shy.  It's so weird...
  16. I don't talk about ages 24-26 anymore.
  17. We had to try really hard to bring the apple of our eye, Greyson, into the world.  The couple of years we went through infertility were pretty painful, but worth it.  We feel intensely blessed it wasn't longer than that.
  18. Las Vegas isn't as bad as I thought it would be.
  19. Every time I swim in deep water (even a swimming pool) I hear the Jaws music in my head and panic.
  20. If I could do anything as a job, I would be a traveling photographer.  People would pay me to travel to different countries and places to take pictures and document different ways of life and histories.
So there you have it.  You now know me a little bit better, whether you be friend, acquaintance, or stranger.  I hope you don't think worse of me.

2 Months old

On December 18, 2012, my little Greyson turned 2 months old!  I couldnt believe it!  Look how big he had gotten!  I thought I'd do a little Christmas theme with him for photos... hes such a ham ;)  Here's a little bit on fun facts about Greyson when he turned 2 months old!

  • I love to smile and coo, especially at mommy every morning!
  • I LOVE bath time!  I get this amazed smile everytime the warm water waches over me.  I'm starting to understand how fun splashing is too!
  • I got blessed by daddy at church and got to meet all my family who were there to see it!
