First Mother's Day...

Sunday was my first mothers day. It was soooo great! I could so get used to celebrating this awesome holiday. It started great when I got up at 5am to feed Maddux. Drew had typed up this way cute and way funny letter from him and Maddux and left it on the computer screen (knowing I would be seeing it in the middle of the night). He knows me oh so well and is having my house professionally cleaned for my mother's day gift. I love it!
When Maddux woke up around 8, Drew got up with him and gave him a bottle and let me sleep in. He made me breakfast and did all the dishes and picked up the house. We went to church with both our moms (who are conveniently in the same ward in Ahwatukee), then spent the rest of the day out there.
I mostly just wanted to put this post up so that I would have this letter from my boys forever. It made me laugh and I just think Drew is the best husband ever! He and Maddux are the best things to ever happen to me!

oh my goodness...

well, i can just about gaurantee that if i entered a lottery to win a fabulous prize, i would never in a million years be picked as one of the winners, regardless of how many winners there were. but i entered the lottery to run the st. george marathon, fairly certain that i wouldn't get picked. wrong. i now have 146 days, 13 hours, 30 minutes and 51 seconds to get my butt in shape enough to attempt to run 26.2 miles! yikes! for starters...i'm going to the cheesecake factory for dinner tonight.
this may be tougher than expected!

bad news...good news...

So, yesterday..I was calling to make sure we could have a crib in our room for Maddux on the cruise (we are supposed to leave saturday). Well, turns out Maddux can't have a crib because he isn't even old enough to be allowed on the ship! They have to be 6 months old...Maddux will miss it by only 38 days! oops!!! After much stress, many tears, and a lot of begging and pleading from my dad...Carnival said that they would not make an exception for us.

What a mess! BUT... my family is sooooo nice and decided to reschedule for August so it can be a family vacation with all members included. I'm bummed that a week from today I won't be lounging around getting a tan on my way to Jamaica, but I'm excited to have more time to get my body in bathing suit shape! Also, in the way of good looks like Amber and the kids get to come out here tomorrow! We miss them so much!!

First Swim...

Aubry, Becca, Stephanie and I spent the day at the pool at my mom and dad's house on Wednesday. It was so fun to have all the kids out there swimming. This was Maddux's first swim experience and he loved it. The swim award definitely goes to Soren though, the kid is a little fish!!!
We took so many pictures of all of us together in the pool, but this is honestly the best one I got! So, Aubry & Steph, I know you took pics! Will you email them to me so I can add some better ones? PLEASE?!
