St. George and the Flu

It has been a crazy couple of weeks! 2 weekends ago we went down to St. George to visit with some friends of mine from Vernal and their families. It was soo much fun! Chalices husband let us stay in his work condo, which was really nice..and Taylor was happy because they had a Wii :) It was also 90 degrees, it was so nice. We had a fantastic weekend just being around friends, I wish we all lived closer together!

Then we drove back Sunday morning and Taylor started getting really sick, I have never seen him sick before so it was kinda scary! Poor guy could barly move. He went to the Dr. on Monday and they said he had swine flu...which I must say that I think "The Swine Flu" is very overated and I am frustrated with how much the media goes on and on about it! ITS just the flu for heavens sake, not a plaig!! Anyways so he had that, then the next day I got it, and the day after that Brynne did. It was a very long week, and Brynne also decided to get her top two teeth that week, poor little girl..she likes to chew on pickles for some reason, I figure a cold pickle must feel good on her gums, its kinda funny though!

Brynne also learned to sit up last week, she would always do it while we werent looking, and we couldnt figure out how she was doing it! Then a couple of days ago we caught her, she pushes herself up with her head, I need to get a video because its hillarious. Anyways the problem with her sitting up is now when she wakes up in the night instead of going back to sleep she sits up, and SCREAMS! It is soo frustrating because I dont think she understands that she needs to be laying down to sleep, so I have to go in there and lay her down and she ends up getting more mad and screaming more...and usually I give in after a hour or two of screaming and just put her down with a bottle. She almost always wins this fight no matter how determined I am to let her cry, its just to hard! Oh, also the other night I was trying to be strong and let her cry but I caved and went in and she had kicked her leg inbetween the bars in her crib and her leg was wedged inbetween them, it was so sad, she must have been scared poor I'm paranoid about that, I need higher bumpers!

She is 9 months as of yesterday, I can not believe it! She is 91st percentile for her height 70th for her head and she went down from 90thish for her weight at her 6 month check up to 61st for her weight at 9 months. She only gained like a 1/4 a pound in three months. The nurse was really worried about this and kept asking me questions about how many bottles I feed her, etc. So I felt really bad, have I been starving my poor baby? But the Doctor didnt seemed very concerned, he said she probably is just starting to slim down a little bit from being so active. But she really eats all the time, she lets us know when shes hungry. She certainly doesnt look like she is wasting away, so hopefully everything is o.k. in that department!

Brynne...up way past her bedtime

Please excuse the carpet, Dione had been cutting fabric.

IN with the new N' OUT with the old..

Brynne has officially outgrown her old car seat.......(little tear that she is so big)

........Sooo she got this snazzy new car seat, which she loves! She loves facing forward so she can talk to us and constantly laughs while she is in it, hopefully this enthusiasm lasts!

This weekend we went to Liberty park but is was FREEZING.....

...So we went to temple square so we could warm up in the buildings. It was alot of fun, I hadnt been in a year or so. It always amazes me that the pioneers were able to build that temple with literally there own hands! They were amazing! After we were uplifted we left temple square and headed home, a few blocks away from the temple we passed a strip bar. I couldn't believe the contrast. Everything on temple square was beautiful, clean, wholesome. Then when we passed the bar is was tacky, disturbing, with no spirit. It made me realize that the choice to choose good can be easier, if your constantly around the spirit you can see the stark difference better.

(at hospital with Brynne when they had only been dating a week or so)

Congratulations Kenny and Andrea! They got engaged yesterday. Kenny picked her up from the airport with a sign that said "Andrea will you..." on the front and "not go to Hawaii with out me again" on the back (rude!) Then all day he tried to do suspicious things like he took her on a drive to the temple, etc. Then later that night after he dropped her off at her apt. he told her where he had hidden a letter for her, then he text her to look under her bead and there was the ring box, with no ring in it. Then he told her to look out her window and three stories down Kenny was in the parking lot with the ring and a huge megaphone where he probably woke up the entire apt. complex while he ask her to marry him, then I guess when it was all over everyone in the complex was at their windows clapping. cute!
