This won't be a very long post, just to let you know what's going on in my life. My mom and sister surprised me in Rexburg on tuesday night after some very sneaky stalking techniques (my dad calling and telling me his tax guy needed my address... right... but I fell for it) so we had a blast this week in the 'Burg just bargain shopping and heading to Idaho Falls. Just fun. And then today we all drove down here for two weeks until my parents head up to Canada and me and Rachael will be catching a ride back. I love Nate because he is so understanding of my need to be with my family. My mom is a teacher so she works ALL year so even when I do come down I can only play with her for a few hours at night so summer is our chance to chill by the pool and do nothing together. Amazing!
This picture is one that my sister-in-law Heidi took when we were in N.C. I know I promised more pics from there, but I left the CD at home so it will be a while still. I just entered this picture in a baby magazine cover contest. We'll know by June 16 if we'll be flying to NYC on August 12 for a photo shoot, then if we make it past the photo shoot we'll be on Good Morning America in October and then America votes for who will be on the cover so watch for us! No really, I just watched "The Secret" and I know this is going to happen.
If you're in STG over the next two weeks let me know and we'll hang out!

Random thankfulness

This is a picture taken in North Carolina. Life is still crazy so more to post later.

So Rachael hasn't been feeling too fantastic the last little while, just a runny nose and slight fever, and I am so grateful that my husband is letting me fulfill my dream of being a stay at home mom. I can't imagine what it would be like having to give my beautiful baby girl to someone else during the day, or on days when she is sick having to call someone to get permission to take care of her. I'm grateful that Nate is as understanding of the importance of being a mother as I am. Sure, its hard some days (a lot of days) and I truly do miss doing hair and taking a shower every day (haha), but in reality, I wouldn't change this. Now I just need to work on finding some friends for me and Rachael and life will be just peachy, minus the sickness and lack of sleep.

Moving, again...

Well we are back in Rexburg after a long day of traveling on Saturday (it feels like that was a month ago!) and only 2 days in STG. Our apartment is... bigger than NYC. But not a whole lot. I'm already loving the dishwasher and washer and dryer. It was the first time since we've been married that we haven't had a furnished apartment so we bought some couches yesterday and they are BEAUTIFUL! Pictures to come when our internet works (I'm currently at my in-laws house). Rachael is almost crawling and just went to the Dr. today. Get this: she is 20 pounds, in the 72 percentile, and is 30 inches, in the 99th percentile! Love that! Well I'll get back to this once life calms down. Bye!
