Utah Weather

It is April 24 and it is cold and snowing. :/ I am not amused in the slightest bit. Robin I think when we come visit I am going to tell Jake to look for a job. If it snows one flake in May I won't even think about it, I'll demand to move.

Jake and Tori Playing

video

Jake isn't moving Tori. He just blows on her and she gets so startled she opens her eyes all big, and throws her hands up so hard she falls back. Heck, babies are so funny.

One of my favorite things about being a mom are the bonding moments that I have with Tori. Every day I love her more and more. I didn't think it was possible to love so much. This morning I had another little bonding moment with Tori that made my love for her triple. Tori and I were laying in bed together and I was wiggling my fingers about nine inches away from her face, then she reached for them. She doesn't have much control yet wit her hands but she would wave her hands around till she hit my hand and grab on slightly, let go and do it all over again. Little things like that are the most wonderful moments. Oh I love my baby so much.

BathTime

I just want to show y'all how much Tori likes to kick and splash about while taking a bath. She is actually little calmer in this video than usual.

Odessa, finally you have looked at my blog!!!

Pointless

A couples days ago I was walking to my car a looked down at my feet, and compared to my dark jeans and black shoes, the section of my foot showing looked like I had white pantyhose on. I even questioned whether or not I might of randomly put some on that morning. Of course I didn't, I don't even where hose, knee highs, or any thing of the sort, even to church. Now I feel a little sympathetic towards my fellow ward members and poor Jake for exposing my pail, white, almost blinding legs. My skin doesn't even have a ounce of color in it. So for the sake of others I am going tanning:)


This story is pointless but I had fun writing it.

Tori's personality is stared to shine. She likes sucking her thumb, sitting up like a big girl in her bumbo chair, pulling on her bows, smiling, and blowing bubbles.




























She is Amazing Video

Yes, at two and a half months old Tori got over the boppy all by her self. I didn't start recording her till a little latter and my camera went weird but I am so happy I captured part of it.

After (she isn't hurt)

March Madness

Pawpa and Tori

Nina and I we registered everyone in the family and got started late so we did walk part of with each other.

Elaine, Camilla, Mom, Candida, Angela, Nina, and me.
Cassidy and my niece Emily.
My niece Righlie.
Canidida, Elaine, and baby Sadie
Tori, Cassidy, and Audry.

This past march was a load of fun but I did go a little crazy with all that was going on.
Earlier in the month my best friend from high school, Amber Moss, came to visit. She also brought her friend Angle with her. I can't believe how much I forgot about being single. I don't miss it as much now that I got a reminder of the super late nights, drama, and all that goes along with being single. None the less I had a great time with those girls.
Then on the 23rd family started to roll in for Tori's blessing. From then till the 31st I had at least Three family members staying with me. Don't get me wrong, I loved having my family staying with me in my home but my house is so tiny. It doesn't take much to fill it up. Anyway first my parents and Nina got here. Then on Friday Candida, Righlie, Camilla, and Emily arrived. Saturday was a crazy day. My mom, Candida, Camilla, Angela, Nina, Elaine, and I participated in a 5K. Then we all rushed back home for a brunch with the rest of my family and Elaine's Family. During the brunch one of us was getting ready for my baby shower in Hooper latter that afternoon. The Brunch wasn't to chaotic because I decided to stick to easy foods. It was great to hang out with with Elaine's family because in ways they feel like my own.
The shower was great, fabulous food, great gifts, and lots of family.
The Blessing day was when I went a little crazy. I was so stressed to have so many people in my tiny, cluttered house that I freaked. You know tears and acting like the world was going to end. Thankfully I pulled it together for church.
Jake did an awesome job blessing Tori. He is such a great father. With in the first few sentences he blessed Tori that she would know that she could come to her mother and father in time of need. I really really hope she knows that all her life. I love her so and want to be a source of comfort, love, advice, and of anything she needs forever. Like I said Jake did great, and I love him so much.
Lunch after the blessing was nice. We ended up feeding Jake's family during third hour of church and mine after church. That made things so much easier when it came to squeezing guests in my home. Talking and visiting was nice the food was yummy and all was well.
