Thank you everyone for your emails, visits, and phone calls to congratulate Joni! I will be sure to pass them along to her!
I don't have any new pictures of Zayden to upload. I left my camera at the hospital. He gets cuter by the day and is finally eating! The swelling in his eyes is almost gone, and his blood sugar levels are back to normal. Hopefully they will get to go home tomorrow.
I am off to a long night of clinicals. More pictures later!

Hey baby lets go to Vegas!

We had a fun time in Vegas this past week for our anniversary! I'm not sure that I will make a yearly tradition out of this...the nude women everywhere were enough to make a Mormon gal like myself wonder if I needed to see my Bishop Sunday morning to somehow cleanse myself...I'm kidding....we had a great time, and I'm sure we will return some day! We saw so many different things, walked in the hot sun 12 hours per day, road the NYNY roller coaster, went to the top of the stratosphere, and breathed in enough cigarette smoke to cause lung cancer. What more could you ask for in a vacation?

Results not typical

My sister's baby is still breech, so we googled (always an accurate source, right?) how to turn a breech baby. Here are the results....

....needless to say, he's still breech.

Let me count the ways....

The 17th is our 6 year anniversary! How exciting is that? It doesn't feel like it has been that long, but I double checked the calender and it has! We are headed to Las Vegas for the weekend, so I thought I would post this before we left.

Reasons I love him.....

1.) He lets me wear his crappy free T-shirts as PJ shirts.
2.) He makes me laugh. I'm laughing right now just thinking about how he makes me laugh.
3.) He knows I'm a freak, and he still loves me anyway!
4.) He takes me to get frosty's at 11pm.
5.) He's kind to everyone.
6.) He makes friends easily.
7.) He tries to make me less anti social....(I actually really have a love/hate relationship with this quality of his)
8.) He doesn't get mad at me when I am still in my pj's when he gets home from work.
9.) He's smart. I can always rely on him for the right answer to any question.
10.) He's dependable.
11.) He's trustworthy. I never have to worry if he's telling the truth.
12.) He laughs at my lame jokes.
13.) He'll hang out with my mom, my sister, and me.....but only for awhile =).
14.) He helps with the laundry and the dishes sometimes.
15.) He never someone I know....
16.) He knows the scriptures very well.
17.) Kids love him.
18.) He laughs at movies and TV shows, and got me to do the same! I seriously NEVER did that until I met him.
19.) He doesn't complain about what I cook...even if it really does taste like crap.
20.) He is good at basketball and tries to get me to play with no avail.
21.) He's good to me and treats me well.
22.) He doesn't mind that I still think I'm in high school and have sleepovers with my BFF, Erin!
23.) He likes my family and knows they are important to me!
24.) He's pretty much the coolest guy I lucky am I to be married to someone so great!?

I know I am missing a million more reasons, but 24 reasons will have to do for today!

Project Baby's Room

A couple of weeks ago we helped my sister move. As an added bonus we got to help her setup Zayden's crib! Isn't it lovely? What makes it even more lovely is we got the WHOLE crib set (wallpaper, lamp, curtains, bedding..everything) from Babies R Us for....drum roll please........$36. That's a saving of over $250! Can you even STAND that price?! Me neither!

This is her "stop taking pictures" face.
