...Life is a Bumpy Highway!

Where do I start?...The last 2 1/2 weeks have been really trying for our family! Not just Nolan, Olivia & I...but everyone in my family! It all started when Olivia & Andrew (my nephew, Olivia & Andrew are exactly 2 months apart) got RSV! It was horrible...coughing, wheezy breathing, coughing & more coughing. The Dr. was able to put Olivia on antibotics, but Drew is too little. Nolan & I had planned to go to Albuquerque for a day trip with the Young Women in our ward, but the night before Olivia started running a fever!! That was really scary! She did start feeling better but... we decided that we better not go. I was really sad, because I had been looking forward to this trip, I was going to get to see my friend Kendra that just moved to Las Cruces! But it's ok, I am over it! Last Sunday my mom took my dad to the ER with stomach pains. They thought that it might be gall-stones, but have now decided that it is Pancreatitis. OUCH! He is doing much better, we are just ready for him to be home! SO READY!


We have gotten so much snow over the last month, which would be really nice, but I am really tired of being cooped up in my house and the muddy mess that follows the snow outside! So needless to say...I NEED A VACATION!! Nolan & I will be celebrating our 5th Anniversary on the 22nd, we have decided that we need to get out of town for a few days and travel to warmer weather! ARIZONA HERE WE COME!! We really don't have any plans for the trip, well I do SHOPPING, Eating & SHOPPING!! I am really ready for a weekend out of town and have our first road trip since Olivia's been born! It should be fun! I AM SOO SOO READY!!



Olivia is getting so big, she rolled over last week! It was an exciting night in our house! Nolan & I made her do it over and over and over! She is growing like a weed...but Andrew is about to pass her up in weight! He gained 3 lbs in a month!! Little chunk!







Alexis (my niece) turned 4 yesterday...she is getting so big! She has turned into the little mother of the bunch! She talks to Andrew & Olivia like Amanda & I talk to them! She is such a helper to her mom! I love watching these girls grow! Kourtney is still SO 2! My mom tells me all the time that she should have been my child!?






I love taking pictures of her and take every chance I can to capture her cute & funny faces! But every time I pull the camera out...she gives me a blank stare! Nolan comes home and she is all smiles! She will smile for me, but not if I have the camera in my hand! She is a funny little girl! I love being a mom...it's the best calling! I feel so blessed!


I don't think I could be any happier right now! After looking back over the last 5 years (almost) of marriage...Nolan & I have been through a lot! But it has only made us stronger! We thank Heavenly Father everyday for finally blessing our lives with Olivia!

She is growing up so fast. It's almost sad. But the day will come when they SLAP you in the face and pull your hair and laugh, and you'll wish that they had stayed a baby forever.

The pictures of Olivia show that she is getting soooo big! I can't wait to see her (oh and you and Nolan too) this weekend. Happy Anniversary. I'm sorry about the RSV. No fun at all.
