baby daddy

So in honor of Fathers Day I would like to tell you a little about my baby daddy!

Brent and I were told that if we wanted kids we would have to do fertility. So because of this we started trying about six months after we were married. I would always think i was pregnant, take a test and be sad and depressed when it would come back "not pregnant." So last August i was late and wanted to take a test, Brent said i should just wait. I was mad because i thought he did not want me to be pregnant. So the next day from work he sent me this email.

Sorry I made you feel like I don't want to have a baby yesterday. I just know how excited you get and I don't want you to be sad if you aren't. I want to have a baby too but sometimes I am afraid that I am not ready and will not be a good dad or that we wont have enough money or time for each other anymore. I love you and am so happy that you married me.

Needless to say i took a test a few days later and i was pregnant.

Now that Reg is here Brent is the best dad ever. In the hospital i was so drugged up and could hardly move Brent would change, feed and rock Reg. He would also have daily singing time with Reg. He would put on Johnny Cash and sing to him for hours. The nurses would come in and just smile. Then when Brent would walk down the hall all of the nurses would say, "Oh you are the dad with the great singing voice." I was so proud! Brent loves holding, kissing and cuddling with Reg. I cant even imagine anyone loving their baby more than Brent. I am so glad i married Brent and that we have the cutest little boy together. I cant wait to have more babies with him and see him as our kids grow. So HAPPY FATHERS DAY TO MY BABY DADDY!

1 Month

Fat feet

Chubby belly and arms

The WINDY beach

So on Saturday Reg turned one month old. Time has gone by so fast. It seems like yesterday he was a little baby who just slept all day. Reg has gained a little over 2lbs so he is over 10lbs now. He also is getting alot stronger. He can hold his head up and move it side to side. He also recognizes my voice and will turn to see me. He is so alert! Sometimes I wonder what goes on in that head of his. So we took a trip to the coast with Brent's cousin. IT WAS FREEZING. The wind was blowing so hard. It was nothing like the beach in California. We had to keep Reg bundled because he was not a fan of the wind. It was fun when the tide went out because we got to go to the tide pools and saw fish, sea enemies and star fish. I wish Reg could be bigger I think he would have loved it. So I was looking back on what I thought Reg would be like and I was dead on. He is such a good baby. He is a social butterfly but LOVES his mom. He already shows his strong personality, and I know it will only get worse the older he gets. I love my little peanut and could not imagine him any other way!

Watch Dog

So the past few days I have been exploring our new home. The weather is nice it just stinks not knowing how to get around. I have been using the Internet and our gps to find places to go. Some things on my to do list are, get my hair done, get a spray tan, go pick fresh fruit, and go to the Portland Temple. I have been going through sun with drawls but not having to BLAST the a.c. is making up for it. The past three nights have been awesome. Reg is like a clock. Every three hours he is up and ready to eat. So Monday night he went 4 1/2 hours between his feedings. Then Tuesday night he slept from 10 to 4 and he did it again last night. I have NO idea why he is sleeping so well but I sure hope it continues. Reg also is a LOUD sleeper. He coos and grunts in his sleep. We have to sleep with white noise to drown him out. Its so cute all the noises and faces he makes while he is sleeping. He also loves to be held. He can be crying but the second he is picked up he smiles and stops. This is a good thing but when it comes to setting him down when he is asleep he will wake back up and give a sad face and start crying again.

Charlie is becoming a wilderness dog. Back home he would not go out in the rain and would jump over puddles. Here in Washington he has had to get over the rain thing but still jumps over puddles. He does however love running through the tall grass and chasing after rabbits. He also is constantly sitting by the back sliding door watching for squirrels. He will sit there for hours just waiting for one to come on the back porch. Then when he sees one he will bark and whimper at it. It is so funny to watch. It reminds me of the dog on the movie UP!

If you have seen the movie Zoolander you will get this. Blue Steel!

Reg loves his binkie

He also loves waving his arms around like a crazy man
