The story of us...
It was 1998, I was a new sophomore at Idaho Falls High School and I had no idea WHERE my first class was...I was in a group with some of my friends trying to figure out where to go when this tall dark and handsome guy made his way up the stairs. He had a big blue Burton backpack on and his class list in hand (we still have the backpack)
Michael at that point in my life was MY NEW CRUSH!
Well things with Michael didn't go as planned that year...I never had the courage to tell anyone about the crush and we both dated other people. My junior year we dated a bit but it wasn't until my Senior year right before graduation Michael showed up at my house on a Friday night with our friends Andrew and Hugh. After that night we haven't skipped a day without hearing eachothers voice. It was also the beginning of a journey that has led us to 9 years together and today marking our 5 year wedding anniversary.
Throughout our time together Michael and I have been through a lot.
We went to school in different cities for almost a year.
We moved to San Diego. We lost my dad. We got burglarized. He graduated from SDGA. We moved to Boise for a job. We turned 21. We partied a lot. We always had roommates. We bought our first house. We got married. Went to Costa Rica on our honeymoon. We sold our first house. We moved to Pocatello for REAL jobs. We bought our second house. We had a baby girl. We built a house. We had a son. Now celebrating 5 years of marriage.
Here are some pics of our special day...

Michael I love you so much. Thanks for loving me the way you do and making me laugh everyday. Cue Kings of Leon... :)

That day on the stairs wasn't just the moment I knew I had a was the moment I knew my future was present.

5 MoNtHS!!

My son is 5 months...
I still have a hard time accepting that he is not a newborn anymore. He is this energetic little boy that laughs at all my jokes and turns his head into my shoulder when his grandma flirts with him.
He really tugs on my heart strings anytime I see him. He is such a sweet little boy and I never knew how much love I could give until meeting him.

Everett Michael is a big talker he LOVES to coo and to laugh. He really loves to be scared...his sister practices her scaring tactics on him often so she is the number one comedian in his life.
He can roll over on one side
He can hold himself up on his tummy
He LOVES his dadda...he has to know where he is at ALL times. Even when nursing I have to tell Michael not to talk just so he will finish eating.
He is an excellent sleeper he still sleeps in my bed. We both LOVE it! He loves it because it is huge and he thinks it is all his I love it because when he wakes up in the night I am right there to cuddle him.
He is in 6-9 month clothing and his feet are huge.
He is very long and about 16-17 lbs
He drools a lot. He loves his green binkie but he really I think wants his fingers.
He is growing up too fast and I can't describe how sweet a boy he is.

Oh and since Berlin has seemed to be pushed to the side the last 5 months so here is a little update on her...
She is going to be 3 in September and she is a riot! She loves to play house, color, play play doh and jump on her trampoline. She can count to 14 in english and 11 in Spanish. She knows what city and state she lives in, her birthday and who the president and vice president are and she also knows where they live. Her favorite color is blue. She loves her dogs. She also just made a itty bitty dance team that has 4 competitions a year so I will be posting videos soon. She is such a sweet big sister and daughter. Yesterday she looked at me and said..."HEEELLLOOOO GORGEOUS!" I said what is that from and with attitude she said Alvin and the!

Bad Blogger

Wow I don't know why it has been so hard for me to update this thing. Anyway we have a lot to get to and I have about 20 minutes to do it. We will start from where I left off...Everett's new born pics.
Big boy is an amazing sleeper he sleeps a lot and he sleeps at the right times.
Berlin did a great job with adjusting to the role of Big Sister...she loves to help change his diaper and she reads to him all the time which he really likes. Don't get me wrong she is 2 and she has done some wild things but I like to think it's her way of initiating poor little Everett into the family.
Back to Everett he has been such an amazing little addition to our family. He brings us all so much joy and his gently nature and tender heart is truly to die for. He is a bashful little guy which I think he gets from his dad. He also LOVES the ladies. He has been such a trooper with his shots, circumcision (AWFUL thing to witness) and dry skin. He is my little angel boy and we are so happy to have him in our lives.
Over the past 4 months we have been pretty busy I have 4 classes left until I am officially a Meteorologist! We will be going to Mississippi for graduation next summer and then over to New Orleans to party! Michael has been working on his books and has only one more set of tests before he is a Class A PGA Professional and Berlin has been in a ballet/tap class with a dance recital they will be performing at the first of June, Everett in that time has smiled, laughed, rolled over and now eats rice cereal. He is growing up way too fast.
I won't write much more but I will post a lot of descriptive pictures that are from Birthday parties, daddy painting nails, Everett growing out of clothes, roll in stroll (our skating rink lets toddlers bring their bikes and moms can rollerskate and push strollers.) Everett lovin his carseat, having tea parties with dad at Grandma Janet's, playin at the park with grandma Brenda, Michael and I winning tickets to our very first Country concert (Jason Aldean...pretty fun time for country music, Bowling with the fam while Michael's sister Amy was in town, Making frames with Aunt Mandy, Easter and Easter Egg hunts. Funny story about Easter...we went to the Z103 Easter Egg hunt and out of thousands of eggs Berlin happens to pick the one that has the grand prize of a new bicycle...lucky girl just like her mom:) Enjoy the pics. I will be back on Friday to post more. Happy day.
