Numero Uno...



So after months of deliberation and a formal invitation from Kathy, we have finally decided to jump on the blogging bandwagon... besides, this counts as 'journaling', right? So here's a review of our 2007... Josh and I graduated from SUU, had a baby (Lainey Rae) June 1st, Josh got a job in Park City a week later, and by July 1, we were living in Taylorsville with his parents, where we are currently residing... Lainey has been a huge source of joy and laughs in our lives. When she was six weeks old, she was diagnosed with a dairy protein intolerance and since I was nursing her, that meant no 'yummys' for me (i.e. ice cream, chocolate, milk, and anything made with anything milk related). It really helped me lose all the baby weight (50 lbs) quicker than I thought, which is never a bad thing. I stopped nursing about 2 weeks ago when we found a formula that would work for Lainey, and sadly, I think I am now allergic to milk products, not life-threatening by any means, but I do get pretty sick when I eat it. Lainey has gained 1 1/2 pounds since she has switched to formula, and I have lost 5, so yeah... it was a good thing!

Josh is enjoying his job at the Park City Marriott. It is the official hotel for the Sundance Film Festival starting the 17th, so it has been pretty crazy. I guess it is where all the offices will be, so the sales department has been getting geared up for the big event which lasts almost a month. We have been spending our evenings tiling, painting, sheetrocking, and mudding in the basement to make it a little more livable. We are adding a shower in the 'toilet room' that was already there and we are putting new flooring down in the main room (carpet, tile, and wood flooring) so we are getting good practice for that 'Someday' when we get our own house.


Lainey now owns the house! She can get anywhere she wants too, almost. She crawls pretty good, and has recently figured out how to pull herself up to anything within reach and gets frustrated when she can't! She has new bumps and bruises from her new discoveries, mainly because she hasn't quite figured out the effects of gravity. Lainey is becoming a momma's girl more and more everyday, which is fine with me! I love when she wants me more than anyone else... Nothing like a baby to make you feel important! She has two bottom teeth, and really loves chewing on paper, apples, my jewlery... another favorite pastime is annoying Sadie, the dog, who gets a little freaked out by Lainey's new found mobility. Lainey's new favorite food (besides her new formula) is Cheerios. I have to be careful about how many I put on her tray, because she has realized that she can use BOTH hands to shove food in her mouth (hmmm... I wonder where she got that from?!) So, for the most part, we are healthy and happy, and just enjoying life!

I feel honored to leave the first comment of your first post! Welcome to the world of blogging. It is a great nap time activity. My nap time window is sadly getting smaller though. He sleeps from 7-8:30 then only like 1 hour during the day. It used to be 3 hours. Lainey is so cute so post tons of cute pictures! What age would you want to teach if you go back? Would Josh's mom watch Lainey? We need family close so we can have a free babysitter. Well all i can say is happy blogging!!!
