His & Her = two

This has been a hard week for our little Sydney.

She had her two month check up, which means shots. I made Jeff come along, because I knew there is no way I could stay in the room and watch. It was the saddest cry I have ever heard!! It is so nuts how I know her cries. This was a new cry, and it really broke my heart. I guess I am just a big baby. When I went back into the room she had stopped crying, and Jeff was holding her. She had her head against his chest, and was just sniffling. I took a picture in my head. It was such a bitter sweet moment.
We went home and she slept. When she woke up she and started to just cry. She was
in a lot of pain. It was hard to watch her suffer.
The next day she was doing better, but still not 100%. I decided it would be a
good time to get her ears pierced, and just get it all done with. My sister in law
came with me,and I could not have done it without her! The hardest part for Syd was
holding still, she is such a wiggler. She handled it really well and only cried when
it happened.

After she was smiling, and back to her happy self. I was amazed and relieved. I don't think they even bother her. When I clean her ears she does not even mind.
She is starting to talk, and it is sooo precious. I want to record every minute of it, but Jeff always talks me out of it!!

Road Trip to Provo

Well this weekend was a very busy weekend. We got home from California, and unpacked. The next evening we got a phone call from the stake president, and he asked that we come meet with him the next morning. Jeff and I thought about what it could be, and came to the conclusion that Jeff was getting released from being Elders Quorum President. So we discussed if we wanted to go to a family ward or not. The next morning we went to meet with the stake president. He interviewed us like he had when Jeff was called to be Elders Quorum President. In my head, I knew something was coming. The stake president then went on to say, he wanted to extend the calling of second counselor in the bishoprick to Jeff. Jeff and I were both blown away. The look on Jeff's face said everything. I could not believe this was happening. Of course we accepted the call. We then returned home and sat in silence for about two hours!! We really were humbled and honored to have been given such a task. I was defiantly intimidated. I know I look at the wife's of the bishoprick members with such respect. I am not sure I can live up to that role, but I will try. Not to sure who I will sit by, but I know it will work out. I know Jeff will do an amazing job. He is such an amazing Man, and he is my example in every way. I fall more and more in love with him daily, and I really will do my best to be supportive.
The president asked if he could call him the next day! So the following day Jeff was called. After this craziness, I went with Jenny to drop off Jaden at EFY. On our way there we got to stop and see Jill, Dave, and Lex. Of course they made us yummy food. It was a short visit but it is always so fun to see them. We then were on our way. We stayed in a hotel, and the next morning we took Jaden to EFY. We got him all situated, and then went out to lunch. Jenny and I decided we really do not like Provo, and were very excited to leave! We were then on our way back home. It was an eventful weekend. I like to keep busy so it was fun!

We took Sydney on her first long road trip. She did really well. We went down to California for my little sister Emmas graduation. We got to my Kelly & Joes monday afternoon. Katherine and her adorable little ones were there. We visited, and were entertained by William and Kailey. I know everyone is going to think I am crazy for saying this, but I cannot wait till Syd is Kaileys age!! It seems like such a fun age. She just makes me so anxious to see what Syd will be like. Sydney got to meet Papa for the first time. She is lucky to have so many people who love her. Soon after my dad told us he wanted to take us to Best Buy. We ended up leaving Best Buy with a Wii & a really nice wireless router! Thanks dad. We were way stoked. We went back to the house and had a relaxing evening. Tuesday the boys went and played racket ball and the girls stayed home to help Emma get ready for her big day. I cannot believe she graduated! We took her to get her hair done, and Katherine and Kelly helped do her make up. She looked gorgeous. We dropped her off, and headed to the graduation. It is held outside on the RCC football field, and it was totally full! Emma had a really big class. I got to watch my little sister graduate and I am not going to lie I teared up a little! It makes me feel so old! After we went to the Cheesecake Factory and ate some yummy food. By the end of the day we were exhausted! On Wednesday Jeff,Emma,Sydney, and I all headed to the beach. Sadly it was not that warm, and it was pretty windy. I did not care I was so happy to be there. I miss the beach, and it is so amazing going back. I was the only one who attempted the water, and would have gotten in but I knew I would have to hold Syd and did not want to get her cold. Jeff is from St.George so he thinks I am crazy for loving the cool water, maybe someday I will be able to convince him it really is not that bad. We relaxed and then headed home. Kelly & Joe were home and just had finished all there finals. They passed almost every class with A's. They are amazing. The next morning we packed and headed back home. We stopped and ate at Mad Greek and were disappointed. A person from food network had featured Mad Greek so our expectations were pretty high. We decided that was a one time thing. After a much enjoyed vacation we returned to our little home. Sydney was so glad to be back to her crib!! I loved being able to see my family and look forward to the next time we will get together.

So memorial Day was a lot of fun. We took Sydney on her first hike. We went to Zion. It was really crowded but it was worth the trip. Sydney was soo good she slept most of the time. I have also started to go back to work just once a week. Last week was the first week and I totally cried when I dropped her off to Jenny. She was in good hands but she is my life and leaving her was not an easy task. It was hard to focus on work, because all i could think about was my little girl. I know it will get easier, but it is crazy how much love I have forAdd Image her. We are so blessed to be able to have children. She has been sleeping through the nights and growing longer and longer. Jeff has been so busy. He just finished girl season of tennis and of course they took state. He now is helping with tennis camp at 6 in the morning. He than runs off to job number two, and after job number three. Somehow in this craziness he has managed to also join a softball team!! So he is go go go. He has been such a good dad and is loving every minute of it. We are headed to California for Emmas graduation on Monday. I cannot believe she is graduating!! I am way excited to go home and see my family. We are also planning a few beach trips and I cannot Wait!!
