There is a first for everything!!

So Drake has not been feeling well at all!! I thought my "motherly instincts" were in tact when I thought he was just teething. He had the classic symptoms..... slobber, lots and lots of slobber, runny nose, fever, and did I mention slobber! But Sunday night just put me over the top! He slept horribly! So we wake up Monday morning and the symptoms were way worse and to add to the symptoms, his eyes just kept watering and he had a bad cough. So my instincts really kicked in and I took him to insta-care. I made sure those symptoms were not normal by making a few phone calls to my sisters and I was reassured they were not normal. Plus!!! We dont have insurance until next month!! But really when it came to my little sweetie pie it did not matter the cost one bit! The diagnosis......... he had a COLD. There was not anything I could give him but a little T.L.C. It is now Saturday and he is doing so good!! Nothing is better than a happy baby...right????
Now if I could just get this "sleeping in his own bed thing" down that would be awesome!! Any ideas??? Please help!!!

I've seen this on a couple people's blogs and couldn't resist putting it on my own :)

Here are the directions:

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

Our baby is Advanced!!

I think every parent thinks that one time or another! But on Sunday, Brian and I were convinced that Drake is just so amazing and must be advanced because he ROLLED OVER!! Yep, it is true! Our three month old rolled over 3 whole entire times!! I Know!! Your jaw is on the floor!! Ours were too. Can anyone beat that? Well we were beat.... a couple told us, Sunday at the Weber State fireworks, that their baby rolled over after two weeks being born! Talk about stealing our thunder! They did! And your baby might have rolled sooner too but I am still a dang proud mommy! The thing that is so funny is after becoming a parent you find so much joy in the little things... I love that! What will our little guy do next?

This was the final part of rolling over...we were so proud he was able to get his right arm out from under himself

This is halfway through.... he is trying to get to his tummy

4th of of my favorites!!

The 4th of July has got to be one of my favorite holidays! I was a total traitor because I went to the Kaysville parade and it was not near as white trash as the Layton parade! Good choice! I did however go to the Layton fireworks. One of my family's favorite thing to do is people watch(a.k.a. make fun of people) dont act like you dont do it! It was hilarious! I love Layton fireworks for that reason......good times. Anyways we had tons of fun and good food. Drake was so exhausted that we had to leave right before the fireworks though...he was a trooper the whole day right up until that point. I do have to say that holidays are so much funner with kids, I cant wait until Drake is a little bigger and he can really have fun with all his cousins. my family the only "people watchers"? If so....we are jerks!

We must be mormon.......LOTS of kids! Almost all of my cute neices and nephews with Grandma and Grandpa. This is one you have to click on and take a look up close! So funny.....I love how my parents are laughing!

Once again, for the nine hundredth time, Brian studying for the bar
(and texting!) before fireworks at Layton Park! Future attorney by his side!

These are all my cute sisters/best friends and my cute mom

Adult feet... not so cute! Baby feet... cutest ever!

Ok so.... Drake was born April 3, Hudson in the middle was born May 10 and Brolin on the end was born April 11! All three cute little boys born into our family within a month of each other. They are going to be best buds!
