6 years

6 years ago today, after years of dating Josh and I got married. If things had gone the way we wanted we would have been married a year earlier and in the summer time in the mountains. But, since that didn't work, we had a beautiful January wedding at the Eldredge House in Bountiful. All of our family and our closest friends came to watch us get married. After came the pictures, and Josh's groomsmen couldn't wait to be done with those. They claimed they were hungry, later we really learned why they were in a hurry to have a break before the reception. Josh's best friends were his groomsmen, and my sisters and my two closest friends were my bridesmaids. Much to my photographers dismay (and aparently some family) my Maid of Honor was actually a Man of Honor.
Our reception looked so busy to us. We didn't go upstairs until it was time to dance, but everyone told us it was pretty packed, and the downstairs where we were for the line was packed the whole time. One of the ladies I worked with at the time ended joining the line because she kept wheeling herself over to me to ask "Diane's sister, you be back 2 weeks?"
After the reception we had a limo waiting for us and went home to our house. Thats when we saw why the boys had been so anxious to have a break before the reception. My Jeep was parked at my parents house until after our honeymoon, and Josh's car was at the duplex we had rented. The limo pulled into our driveway and we saw the decorated Civic under the carport. We had really thought we were going to get away with not having our car decorated. But it was cool that they did it, and even though we were starving and really wanted to go get some food, we didn't want to undecorate the car until morning when we could take pictures of it.
Our families came over the next morning and brought our gifts and we opened them with everyone there. The next day we left for Vegas.
Our weddind day was amazing, but the marriage has been so much better. It is amazing to be married to my best friend. He makes everyday very interesting with his jokes, songs, and dancing. He's an amazing husband and father and I'm so blessed to have him in my life. I'm looking forward to many more years with him. Love you honey!!! And thanks for cooking dinner tonight!

4 months!!!!!

My baby is 4 months today!!!! I can't believe it. They grow up way to fast. He's still so small, but seems so grown up some days. He always looks like he's studying everything and trying to figure it all out. He found his smile about a month ago and loves to show it off!!!! He's very talkative. He often thinks it's more important to talk then eat. He's like his big brother and has discovered his hatred for tummy time, but loves to be on his back playing with toys above his head. We love our newest member of the family.We feel so greatful and blessed to have him. And so blessed that he's been so healthly from the day he was born.
Skyler absolutely adores him. He loves to play with Sage and find toys for him. He tries to soothe Sage when he's crying by telling him "It's ok" and "I know". I have even heard him tell Sage he'll grow up big like he is. What a sweet big brother. Like I said, we feel so blessed.

Thought we'd give this a try

So, everyone else has a blog. And I love to read them and see whats been going on in everyone's lives. But never really thought about making my own. Until Skyler started saying the funniest things to me and I thought it would be fun to have them written somewhere. You always here of funny things little kids say, but when it's your own (especially having to wait so long just for him to talk) you want to share them with everyone.
A couple examples:
We're in Taget eating lunch:
Skyler:(loud inough for everyone to hear) "Hey Mom! Look at that boy riding in his cart! I don't know what his name is called. Whats his name called?"
Me: "I don't know honey"
Skyler: "Hmmm. Me either."

Shopping in Target, Skyler had decided to ride in one of the carts with the two seats.
Skyler:"Wow! Look at that toy! Wait Mom! I need to get out and see that toy!"
Me:"Ok Sky, but only for a minute. And we can't buy it today."
Skyler:"OK. I buy it next time."

Shopping in any store when Sky is walking, not riding in a cart.
Me:"Skyler, come on. Please keep walking with me."
Skyler:"Mom, just looking!"
