Our Year in review. 2012

This year has been such a wonderful year! We took a lot of vacations and spent a lot of time with family. As I look back at the year it makes me happy and sad all at the same time. Happy because I am fortunate enough to not only have a perfect little family of my own, and a job, and a nice house, but I have wonderful parents, grandparents, and in laws. I am extremely blessed! And sad.. well, time is going by so fast, everytime I blink another year has past! I have learned to not wish the time away and try to treasure each day.
 -Some big exciting things that happened this year.. Our little princess was born May 5th at a whopping 10 pounds 1 oz! I am still amazed at how a baby could be born that huge! I also fear of what my next child will weigh at birth! ha ha. She is such a good baby that it amazes me sometimes!
 -We found out that my little nephew Griffin has cancer in April. He was 15 months old when we found out. The past year he has been doing chemo and radiation and spent many many days and hours in the hospitals and ER's. He is a strong little guy and we hope by March we are able to say he is in remission!
 -We went on some fun family trips! We were able to go to Yellowstone twice, once with my family, once with Steven's family and it was fun both times and were able to see different stuff each time. (Never did see any Moose or bears). We also went camping a few times with my family in our new tent trailer (which is freakin awesome!) and it was a lot of fun! We also had our annual Park City trip which was a blast and I always look forward to that one! At the end of the year we went to my parents "condo" in SLC a few times (Before Christmas, and we will go again on New years eve).
 -We were able to spend a lot of time with both families and loved it!
-I was on maternity leave the whole summer which was fantastic! I was able to go and do almost everything that was brought up and it was really nice, I was spoiled for sure!
 -We spent  some time at Seven Peaks Water Park which is always a hit with Korbin. He started to become a better swimmer as the summer went on. We ended the summer with him being comfortable swimming on his own (With his floatie) and going under water. He loved all the big slides and waves.
-We have been working on getting Korbin potty trained as well. He does really well but we arent accident free, thats for sure! He has done well and we are proud of him. We enjoy not spending so much on diapers each month!
 -We celebrated our 6 year anniversary!
-Steven graduated college with a Bachelors degree in Physical Education and decided he wanted to stay at his current job and continue moving up there. Since then he has been promoted to Assistant Lead in his area.
-I have tried to become more of a homemaker. Making our home a little more like a home, having a more organized dinner plan, and making my own baby food.

Thank you to all our wonderful friends and family that are always there for us! We love you and are so thankful for our friendships.
Happy New Year! Lets have another amazing year!

7 Month old Aubree!

Well Tis the season! At least that is my excuse for falling behind on the blog. Aubree is now 7 months old! She just keeps getting more and more of a personality each month. She is such a fun, smiley, cute little girl! This month she finally learned how to hold her bottle. She is a good little sitter now and will sit there for as long as I put her down. She loves her jumper and is getting really good at it. She still loves her big brother and thinks he is just the funniest kid on the planet (which he is!). She has such a sweet heart and just goes with the flow. She is starting to enjoy baby food and with gobble down all the fruit! She is definitely a little chunk and she is wearing 9-12 month clothes now! She is growing too fast! Still no teeth, no crawling, and no rolling from belly to back. She ALWAYS rolls from her back to her belly and gets stuck! She is such a good little girl! We love her so much!
 First snow fall of the year!
