I cannot believe it. My baby is 1. How did this happen? I remember the day I had him like it was yesterday. I could tell you every detail if you'd like but I won't. Even though I will cherish that day of my life forever!!! He is the best thing that has ever happened to me and Jared. He is such a cutie and he always makes us smile. He can be a turd sometimes but we still love him. I didn't know that 1 yr olds had attitude like he has but they do! I think its pretty cute now, but I know in a few years it won't be so cute. LOL. Some of his favorite things lately are he loves to stand up to things, sharing his food, wrestling with his dad, rocking at night with mom like always, growling of course... he has done that since the day he was born, crawling... yes he is finally crawling haha, being outside no matter how cold or hot it is, and the list could go on, but I think ive mentioned most of his favorite things. I made a big mistake on his birthday. His party wasn't until 7pm so I was going to make sure he got 2 naps so he wouldn't be cranky. He took one nap pretty early in the day so I was happy about that, but then it got to be about 5pm and I wanted him to take one more so I made him take another one. By make I mean he didn't want to even though he was tired so I took him in my room and turned on Enya and I held him and swayed back and forth until he was out. And he was literally out. I had to wake him up at 6:15 so he would have enough time to wake up and get back to being happy and cheerful, but he so did not want to wake up. He was mad and cranky. I thought Oh great look what ive done. He was a little cranky when everyone got here but as the night went on he got Happier. Anyways.... :) For his birthday we had all the family come to our house, and we learned that our house is too small for that many guests. It was pretty squishy, but we still had lots of fun. First we started off by letting him open his presents and he got bored after about 2 of them, but then he had help from his cousins and that made it a little more fun for him. He got wayyyyy to many presents thats for sure. I can't believe all the toys he got and now I have no where to put them, but he sure enjoys them. My front room just looks like a toy room is all. Everyone is asking what he is getting for Christmas and the answer is........... a TOY BOX!!! Something to put all these toys in. After opening all his presents we had cake. It was awesome. I ordered Haize a cake from Smiths because my sister in law let me in on a little secret.... they do a FREE cake for 1 year olds. Awesome! So Haize had his own cake and then I made strawberry shortcake for the rest of the party. It was so much fun watching Haize dig into his cake. He had alot of fun flipping it everywhere. He also likes to share his food so I let him feed me a little and yes I got a little frosting on my face. So cute though. Of course he then had to get in the rub and rinse off. After his quick rinse off him and his cousin Jericho played with all the new toys. The cutest was when Jericho pushed Haize on the train. We had a great turn out and Thanks to everyone for coming! Happy Birthday Baby Boy!!!!
Hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween. This year was fun for me because I got to dress Haize up. I ordered his costume like over a month in advance because I was so excited. We started trick or treatin a bit early so that Haize wouldn't get onery. First we went to Jareds aunt Judy's house and visited for a bit then we headed on over to my parents. I had my mom come with me to take Haize over to my Aunt Karen and Uncle Steve's cause I had told them a while ago that I would make sure I came by. And of course Haize was tired and wouldn't growl or talk to them, but he was still cute in his little dragon costume. I did however manage to get some pretty cute pictures of him in his costume in some leaves at my parents house. We didn't go many places because all of my brothers and sisters kids come to my mom and dads so we just trick or treat each other there. All in all it was pretty fun. Here are some pictures of our cute little Dragon.
Jared and I have been married for 6 years now. I can't believe it has been that long. In some ways it feels like we have married forever, but in other ways it feels like it was yesterday we tied the knot. I love Jared so much and really appreciate all he does for me and now of course Haize. He is the best dad ever. This year for our anniversary we snuck away and went to Park City and left Haize with my sister. Thanks Jennifer and family. It was so nice to get away for a night even though leaving Haize for the first time overnight was a little sad for me, but he did pretty good and I didn't worry too much. He was in good hands. Jared and I had never been to the alpine slides so that is what we did and we also did the newer alpine coaster. It was a blast and definately worth the money to do both. We had a lot of fun and I laughed the whole time on the coaster because I was in front of the sled and Jared had the brake and kept breaking. I was getting mad at him because I like to go fast but he had to pee and I was hurting him by sittin in front of him cause his legs couldnt fit in the sled right with me in front of him. Poor guy. That evening I let Jared decide where to go eat and of course that was a dumb idea. He chose Sushi. I ordered chicken of course and it was actually pretty good, but way to expensive for what it was. Jared was disappointed as well. The rolls were about as big around as his thumb. Big rip off. I cant remember the name of the place but it was something like Yuki Sariaki or something like that. Dont go there. Anyways here are a few pictures of our little weekend. I didnt get many but hope you enjoy.
We began dating in April of 2003 and got engaged in June 2003. Then of course came the wedding in October of 2003. Jared had a house already that he had built in Santaquin and we are still living here. We had a little baby boy we named Haize on November 7th 2008. He is our miracle baby.
