WHO COULD BELIEVE MY BABY IS ALREADY 1!!! (On Oct. 8th) Truely I am blown away with how fast time flies! Just one year ago, I was about to enter the unknown world of children, and had no idea what it would really be like. I will never forget the doctor putting Phoenixx in my arms, and how that moment I knew nothing on earth would ever compare to being a mom. Nate and I are still on a high. When we brought him home, we would fight over who got to hold him. We still lay in bed (for way to long) in mornings, just playing and cuddling with Phoenixx. He has gotten so big, he loves driving his toy car around everywhere in the house, he loves oatmeal, he loves his cousins, he has a squeal that will burst your ear drums, he tolerates the dogs, he adores his dad and loves his mama. He is the best thing that has ever happened to Nate and I and I am grateful every day he is our baby.

Savana is my niece and we took pictures of her entire family this week. It was so fun to take pictures of her, she is quite the model. She is ONLY 3!!!! And did what ever I asked her to. When her mom was pregnant with her, I felt a connection right away and since she was born (I got to be there to see her birth) I have loved her so much . She is extremely smart, fun, sweet and HELPFUL, especially with Phoenixx. I absolutely adore this little girl!!! Her new favorite thing is sleeping over at my house and her mom isn't allowed. ha

I call my sister Stef up on Friday, asking where I could find a laundry mat around here. I had about 12-15 loads of laundry to do, (For the last 6 months) haahaha. Really, I have not been on top of it for sooooo long! SO she comes over, taking half of it in her car to do at her house to make it easier to do the rest at mine. Once she got here, she was so overly excited to organize my laundry room to make it more fun to do my laundry, that excitement spewed over to my closet, which turned into my bedroom which turned into Phoenixx's room and so on. In THREE days we cleaned out my ENTIRE house, closets, cabinets- kitchen and all. And lets not forget our basement project!!! I soooooo wish we had a before picture! It would only do these pictures justice. We cleaned out every bin (mouse poo and all)!! Okay I just did it! I outed myself, yes we have HAD mice (HATE THEM!!) and I was so overwhelmed with the project of cleaning out my basement! Stefanie is more than an Angel, she is my saving GRACE! I could never stick my hands in other peoples mouse poo~ Oh boy!

We took a HUGE load to the dump and a HUGE load to D.I. I can not explain the joy I feel!!! I feel lighter than EVER getting rid of soooo much crap I will never use again! I got down to 6 Bins in storage with room left in them. My life feels more in ORDeR and I can breath better- little dramatic, but true! If any of you need help getting rid of your StuFF that you have packed away CALL MY SISTER! She won't let you hold onto anything that you describe as "maybe I'll use that again!!"

My Sweet BLuE EyeD BOy!!!
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!
