Okay, so I hear all these mom's tell me it is important to get your baby in his own crib and that it will help teach them to fall asleep on their own. Well, I have been putting it off and off for weeks. I couldn't do it, I would try but five minutes into the screams and tears I would brake. Plus it isn't only because Phoenixx has learned to fall asleep only to me that I kept him in bed with me, but because I LOVE cuddling with him. He is so sweet and I didn't want to give up that time with him being a working mom. Well to make a long story short, kind of... I did it! I put him in his crib last night and let him SCREAM! It broke my heart, but once he feel asleep he did really good. I think a couple more nights and we'll be set. I just might be getting this "MOM THING" down! I CAN DO IT!

Your little guy is handsome. Wow, do you just love being a momma? I am so happy for you. It makes me want to have a baby so bad. I mean when they are that cute, I just can't resist and want to be a mom. How is it all. Has it been hard, yet rewarding? Good Luck, hope to see your new miracle boy soon.

I didn't realize when I orginally posted a comment on your blog that your husband was Nate! Nate is a stud! It's crazy how small the world is. Michelle and I absolutely love Aubri! We didn't know that she was remarried until we saw all of her pictures on your photography site. They're beautiful!
You need to kick Kathy in the butt and tell her to get a blog too! I still remember the good old days when she and my bro Chris were dating. Please tell her hi for me.

it's so worth it it to let them cry through it - it will pay off BIG time and you will be happy you did it! I always put my girls to bed with music playing...seemed to work for them, and me (and it drowned out their crying :)..they still luv it!

Brianne! Hey how are you! Last time I saw you, we were both prego and sitting at Aspen Womens center! I'm so happy for you, your little guy is so cute! I can definitely see your genes! His eyes are yours. I hope you don't mind I'm adding you to my friend list! Tell Dana Hi, and we can't seem to get a hold of each other, I'll try again!

I LOVE this picture of Phoenixx. We went to Sunvalley and Jackson last week for work and did anything possible to keep him happy for the car ride. It was his best trip yet! I was quite grateful for baby einstien! We gave him all kinds of food that entertained him to say the least. He is now getting teeth on the top and will be walking any day! He has a new sound every week. His latest is he will stick his tongue out and blow when he wants us to be quite!!! LOL It cracks us up everytime!
