April Happenings

We have had a fun and busy last couple of months. I had my last day of work at the end of March. I was a little sad to leave my job, but am so excited to be able to stay at home with Cora! She is growing so fast and learning new things every day, i feel like i can't blink or i will miss something!

Cora had her first taste of rice cereal last week and she was not happy about it!

Cora and I have been trying to get over a cold we have both had for the past week. She has a bad cough and i have a bad sore throat. But she has been a trooper about it.

My Mom and all my sisters and their kids came to Idaho to visit me and Kelsey over the Easter holiday! It was so much fun, we hadn't all been together for a long time, so we had a lot of catching up to do! I'm a little bummed i didn't think to take pictures of all the kids playing together or all the fun stuff we did. When it was time for them to leave, Kelsey and i decided we weren't done having fun, so we followed them to Utah where we all stayed at my Grandpa's house for the weekend. It was fun to see some more family down there, and my aunt Michelle made the most delicious meals for us! We had such a good time, i wish we could see everyone more often!

3 months

I am back from the blogging dead! We'll see how long it lasts. These past three months since Cora was born have been so busy, fun, tiring, AMAZING, and full of learning all sorts of new things for me and Justin. I had such a smooth labor and recovery and Cora has been a very happy easy baby. I have loved watching her grow and see her learn new things every day. A few things about Miss Cora Paige:

her swing
sucking on her fingers
her daddy's voice
her car seat
sitting up and looking around

She does NOT like
her pacifier
any delays in meal time
tummy time
getting her boogers sucked out

We just love her so much and can't get enough of her cute face and sweet personality. Being a Mother is definitely as challenging and rewarding as people say it is, and i wouldn't change it for the world!

Bowling and Pulling Teeth

Then i had my wisdom teeth taken out and i looked like this.

Salt Lake City Half Marathon

Justin and i went down to Salt lake last weekend to run the half marathon and 5k and we had a blast!

The night before the run we met up at Olive Garden with a bunch of guys Justin works with to load up on a ton of carbs, it was delish.

Waiting around before the run, I was SO nervous!

We made it!

And then we had the RICHEST, CHOCOLATIEST, most DELICIOUS milk shake i have ever had the pleasure of eating. And after that we had a big fat burger and fries at In-N-Out....and later we met up with some of his friends and dined on a juicy bacon and cheese burger at Red Robbin.

Valentine's and Flying

For Valentine's weekend Justin and I drove down to Salt Lake City to eat at Rodizio Grill and oh my heck it was so delicious. Then we went to go see Wolfman. Bloody. Gory. Perfect for the weekend of hugs and hearts. Then on Valentine's day we went over to Justin's parents house and had dinner and then i forced Justin to watch Time Traveler's Wife with me. All in all it was a fun weekend.
Last weekend we were having pretty good weather so Justin's dad decided to take his plane out for a spin and he invited us along. I have no idea what kind of plane it is but holy smokes it is small. There were 3 big guys plus me riding in this thing. We put on our headsets, buckled our seat belts, i was told that, no, my seat cushion will not transform into a flotation device in case of an emergency, Justin's dad goes to start the plane and.....nothing. The engine is dead. Well long story short, apparently you can hand start this plane, there is a generator that will kick in in case the engine fails, and no, the engine cannot stop while you are in the air. At least that is what the guys told me to calm me down because i was freakin out by this point.
But Justin's dad has been flying planes for over 25 years i thi
nk so i knew i was in capable hands. Plus Justin said if we started to go down we would just throw out the excess weight which would be the 2 guys in front. I wanted to get more pictures but our camera died.

Mr. and Mrs.....Almost :)

Well the wedding is coming up soon (Nov. 28) and we are still trying to plan everything! Justin's mom and my mom have both been great at helping us to get everything together and i am super excited for my family to come up here next week!

Kelsey especially has helped us out A LOT she went over to Justin's parents house one night and helped us make announcements until 1 am. I am pretty sure if she hadn't helped out they would for sure not even be done yet.

Kelsey and Aaron also went down to the green belt with us a couple sundays ago to take pictures and it was FREEZING! But we got some good ones:
