Our 4th Anniversary!

Today is our 4th anniversary of being married. We were married in the Chicago Temple on a beautiful day. Jordan is in TX for two weeks, so Will and I get to celebrate alone :( Jordan and I did get to go out for dinner a few nights before he left to celebrate, though.

These past four years have been wonderful. We have had a baby, a house, a dog, three great job opportunites for Jordan, and countless other blessings. I am so grateful we chose to be married in the Temple and have a family that can be together forever!

Happy Anniversary, Jordan! I love you oh so much!

It's Tubby Time!

video

Will has been crawling to the Tubby every night for about two weeks. The boy loves the tubby! Anytime he hears the water running, he immediately takes off (even if the sink is running, or even if we are just going potty!). He is quite fast, too! Here are two videos from different nights. He is pretty cute in both, so we couldn't decide which to post.
When the water is not running, he takes a little longer to get there. Once he does, he normally turns around and smiles followed immediately by banging on the tub. Enjoy!!

We Found the Ring!!!

Today is such a WONDERFUL day!! It is my first day not teaching, probably until Will/future children go to school full time. We are also having wonderful weather and are doing a lot of stuff to prepare our house to go on the market. Jordan wanted to patch a crack we have on our vaulted ceiling, so he asked me to help move our couch in order to put a ladder behind it. I jokingly mentioned to be on the look out for my ring since the couch was one of the places I could have lost my ring. He first moved his half, and then I struggled to move my half. As my half moved, slowly I could see a golden sparkly ring on the floor!!! It was almost like Charlie Buckett slowly finding the golden ticket in his Wonka bar!! We both were SHOCKED that we found it!!
I have been missing it since October 20, 2007; almost 8 months. When I lost it, I know I had it in my back right pocket from changing Will's diaper. We looked everywhere for it, including under that very couch multiple times! My poor husband and brother even went through all of Will's dirty diapers from the Diaper Genie II! It must have eventually wiggled its way out from the couch. I am SOOOOO THRILLED! It is more beautiful than I remembered! INSURE YOUR RINGS!! We will never make that mistake again!

Baby in a Basket!

Will loves to help me do laundry. His favorite part is playing
"Where's Will?" in the basket. I put the basket over him, and peek at him through the sides. He eventually finds his way out of the basket, too. He loves to help me put laundry in the wash machine, and loves to stick his hand in the water when the machine is full. At least one of my men like doing laundry!! If only his Daddy would see how fun it can be...

Cranky Boy



Now that it is warmer outside, Will gets super hot while he sleeps. He often wakes up with a mohawk and rosey cheeks. Gone are the days that he used to wake up babbling; now he wakes up screaming and squaking until someone comes and gets him. Here are a few choice pictures of our little cranky boy!
