I'm a Mom!

(this post is copied from my other blog, so feel free to skip it if you already read it. I won't be mad :-)

She's here!
Well... she's been here for 6 weeks ;-) 
I've just been too busy/tired/lazy to blog about it.
(this is her favorite place to sleep)
Sage was born July 17th, 5:17am, and she was 6lbs, 14oz and 20 inches long
We sure do love her!
(The above photos were taken when she was 4 days old)

She is so fun. 
She makes the best faces. 
The kissy lips is like her signature look
She was a pretty happy baby -this one was taken when she was around a week old
But my poor little girl became rather colicky around 2 or 3 weeks old. It's getting better, but she is fussy a lot. It is hard when I can't make her feel better.
She loves her daddy :-)
It is quite an adjustment, but we can't imagine life without her!
And, she's starting to smile socially now! 
It is adorable
 Oh! and I got a haircut :-)
We love our pretty little Sage :-)
SOOO much!

Sometime I'll write her birth story
and I have tons more pics that I will share from our professional shoot as well as more from my phone, so stay tuned!

I'm Still Here!

It has been almost two years since I posted on here, I don't even know where to start...

Michael and I are doing great! Still very much in love, and enjoying life :-)
We are now living in the basement apartment, under his parent's garage, and we are really enjoying it! In some ways it is smaller, and in some ways it is bigger.  He has a new job, that he started a little over a week ago, he is enjoying it. I'm still making jewelry! But I'm not selling much right now. In the future I want to take some to fairs and farmers markets. 

I think for now I'll just leave it at that and go forward, and maybe in the future I'll play catch-up some more :-)

Other than that, we are pregnant!
Which, you all already knew :)
 This is me at 3 months
Four months
Five months
Six months
Seven months
Eight months
Nine months
Next week I'll be taking my 10 month picture! (I'll be 40 weeks!)

 Those were two of the many pictures that my friend Bryn took for me, I'll probably post more another time. There are some great ones of Helena and I together!

Our little girl :-)

The midwives guess she'll come around July 9th, but I'm guessing that she'll come a little later. Probably around the 12-16th. 
But really she could come at any time! 
So, we will see! What's your guess of when she'll make an appearance?

I'll post again soon

Adam's Family Reunion

Over the 4th of July weekend, Michael and I went to my step-Mom's family reunion
Every 2 years JoAnn's family all gets together over the 4th of July.
There were around 300 people there!

It was a ton of fun! We got to meet a lot of people, and it was really nice to get to spend some time in the great outdoors.

Here are some pics! Be warned, there are a lot...

I love hammocks

Pearl really wanted to pet the horse

The tent trailer. Michael and I want to get one someday. This is where Dad, JoAnn, David Michael and I all slept.

We met Elder Dallin H. Oaks!

Elder ans Sister Oaks. They are so cute :-)

There was line dancing later that night, and I snuck a picture of Elder Oaks as he was learning the moves
