Wow, it's been forever

So, I've been following everyone else's blogs...and realized that I haven't written one of my own since August!! So much has happened since that time!! Jacob is growing up soo fast, he is 5 months old now! He learns so much everyday, it is so amazing to watch him grow up and learn. It's funny because I never thought I'd be one of those annoying moms that can only talk about their children, but Jacob has become my whole life and I want to share everything about him!!! So, I'm going to share a little bit about him, right now.

Jacob is a big boy..and I do mean big. When he was born, he was 7 lbs 7.8 ozs..AND he was 3 weeks early. Now, he's 5 months...and close to 19 lbs!! He LOVES to eat...he gets that from his daddy!!! When Jacob is eating his bottle-if you try to take it out to burp him....he will SCREAM bloody murder, it is hilarious!! Jacob is eating solid foods 2 times a day...he's made his way all the way through the fruits and now we're working on the vegetables. So far, we haven't found anything that he doesn't like!!

Jacob has learned to do a few things...they might seem simple to some, but to me, they are a huge deal!! He can roll over from his belly to his back, which I might add, he learned at 6 weeks. He is learning how to use his hands and can grasp small toys, necklaces, earings, my hair, etc. He is sleeping in his own room, in his crib, and can most of the time make it all the way through the night (yay!). He likes to play with people...he can stare in your face and laugh and talk to you forever...that's definately his favorite type of play time! He is learning how to sit up..he can support himself on his knees for about 10 seconds...and sometimes if he's laying at an incline he can pull himself almost all the way up.

I really could go on and on about all of the things he does...but I'm sure I've already gone on for too long! :o)

There is more to my life than my husband. We've been married for 1.5 years now, and although there are days where we both could kill each other, we are still very much in love. He makes me happy every day. I still work for Navy Federal...and I like it, although my heart is at home, with a certain little boy.

There is much more that I could say, but it's getting late...and although Jacob can sleep through the night...his idea of morning is 6 a.m, even on the weekends!! So, I better join the rest of the family and hit the sack!

14 months...and our baby boy

So, we've now been married for 14 months. It has been the most wonderful and hectic 14 months of our lives. On July 20th, we had our first child, Jacob David Nicholas. He arrived at 9:43 pm and was 7 lbs 7.8 oz and 19.5 inches long. He is so remarkable, we are amazed daily.

He is now almost 3 weeks old and is changing daily. We are still getting used to all of the things that come along with being a parent. One of the hardest things to deal with is the lack of sleep!!! I know this phase will pass pretty quick, but right now it is pretty exhausting!!!!

We are so blessed and are in love with our baby boy!! We can't wait to watch him learn and grow.

Here are some pictures that were taken of him in the hospital.

9 months in...and a baby on the way

So, a lot has changed since my last update. Things are still going great in the marriage. I cannot believe it's already been 9 months! This first year is FLYING by!!! We did receive some exciting news on our 6 month anniversary.....we're expecting! We found out on the 11th that we are having a baby boy!!! We are so very excited for this!! We're doing all we can to get ready for him. We have put up a privacy fence for the dogs and are going to install a doggie door. Our hope is that this will deter Payton from using the bathroom in the house anymore!! That way, we can recarpet before the baby is old enough to crawl!!!! Ahh!! What a crazy first year of marriage this has been! Other than that, not much else is going on!! (although that is big news!)

3 months in and going strong

So we're almost at our 3 month anniversary...and things are going great! Who knew being with one person all the time could be so great! haha!! I love the little things we do like watching T.V. shows together on the couch. We just hosted our first event here for Justin's birthday. We had a good turn out..although it rained a lot. It is a lot of work putting an event like that together...I think we'll stray from another one for a while!!

Our lifes are pretty dull right now...although Justin is going to Vegas and New Orleans in a few weeks...and I'll be taking a road trip to Cali to say goodbye to my best friend!! Other than that, things are still the same!!

Thank you cards...

Oh my goodness! Whoever knew that thank you cards could be so much work!! I've done about 15 and I feel as if my hand is going to FALL OFF!!! Oh well, I'll get through it...just do a little each day. I'm really excited to send them out! We got these SUPER cute address labels that I can't wait to put on them!
Tonight I got to break out some of my new items. I made Justin some brownies so I got to use my new bake ware and my awesome new mixing bowls! Who knew I would be so stoked to use such simple things! haha!!
Well not much else is new! Justin is working like crazy! Last weekend was the holiday weekend and this weekend is the Blue he has been wore out working for 2 straight weeks!!! Other than that nothing else is new!!!!!

Well more updates later!

Week 3 of marriage

So we have officially been married 3 weeks and I absolutely love it! It's funny how you enjoy the little things together like grocery shopping and making dinner. It's all a new experience for us. We're still getting our house in order, weeding through all of our gift. Justin finds places for stuff every couple days. I can't wait till we both have a weekend at home together to unpack and arrange everything. Once the house is ALL the way put together, I will post pictures, right now, it's still a disaster!!!!!!
Well more later, I'm going to watch T.V. with my HUSBAND!!!

We're Married!!!

So two weeks ago today was our wedding! It turned out absolutely amazing. All the hard work and planning was definately worth it. It is quite amazing to see how your vision all comes together. Here's some pictures to get and idea of what it looked like!

Justin and I are adjusting very well to married life. We've been together for so long now, it didn't really feel like much of a transition. We love putting all of our new gifts away and decorating the house to make it feel like our home.

Not too much else is going on right now...just loving being married.
