ashlyn-9 months

if anyone still looks at our blog, yes! We are alive! i know its been since July that i have posted and i have good excuses, but we wont get into it too much. Lets just say with no working computer at home, a baby and some other things, my blog has taken a back seat!

Just had to let you all know (if you dont already) that i am expecting again! That's right, my 9 month old is going to be a big sister at the age of 14 months! After a bit of shock, We are super excited (it took us 3 years to get prego with Ashlyn) we found out its a boy! YAY! one of each!

July has brought the heat! It has been great to finally feel like it's summer here. I love the evening walks we take here in midway to get a sno-cone and hanging out on the porch! Summer is great.
The 4th of July was fun. We spent the weekend in Manti where they do a great old town celebration. They have a parade on the 3rd and my nephew, Tanner was so adorable riding his decked out bike! The next day we participated in potato sack races, 3 legged races and climbing the greased log pole. We set up chairs and blankets under some shade and camped out there for the day. It was really nice and relaxing and i hope we can do it again next year!

Ashlyn loves eating her hands

our patriotic girl

our little family

love her smile

Widdison grandkids

oh so serious!

look at that nose! don't know where she got it, but i know it's cute!

Last weekend was my 25th birthday. Skylar and I went to Park City and went on the Alpine Slide and the Coaster. (Highly recommended) A bit overpriced, but we had a lot of fun!

We have gone to the lake a few times now and are lucky to be able to have such beautiful places to go that are so close.

That's all for now.

catch up

in my last post i told the summer weather i was ready, but apparently the summer weather wasn't ready to come. It has been so rainy the last few weeks, but finally the sun is out! YAY!
June has been good though. We celebrated Skylars birthday in Vegas. we left ashlyn for the first time with some friends. It was by far the hardest thing i have ever done, but once i got over my sobbing, i was able to really enjoy the weekend with skylar! we stayed at treasure island for 2 nights and went to cirque de soleil. It was a lot of fun. plus i got to spend some time at my favorite store ever! SEPHORA! Ashlyn was in great hands and i have to thank Kayla and Matt for taking such good care of her! they will be great parents

the only picture i took while we were in vegas

we saw our brother in law Mike while he was in town and the only thing that would have made that better is if my sister and her family could have been here with him! it was great to see him though.

oh, and i went to my friend Ambers house for a little reunion! I have not seen her since before she was pregnant with her little girl Brooklyn, and now she is 9 months old! It was a fun experience to see eachother and our babies for the first time! It was great to get together and catch up on eachothers lives! I just wish we lived a little closer so we could do that more often.

here we are with our cute little girls!

ashlyn was doing this new scream funny

ashlyn and i spent the weekend being very sick. i could have sworn i had no more to throw up, but it just kept coming. i sent ashlyn to Grandma Widdisons in hopes that i could get some rest, but the poor little thing was sick too. It made me so sad. She was such a trooper! I was whining the whole day and she just dealt with it like it was nothing.

this was the night she was sick. such a sweetheart!

something you don't see very often-ashlyn without her bow! ha ha

Life is good! beside the fact the my husband likes golfing way too much!....

June already?

seriously, i know this sounds so cliche but where does the time go?
i can't believe it's June!
i can't believe we have been married for 5 years!
I can not even believe that Ashlyn is over 4 months old! 4 months and 2 weeks to be exact!
she is the light in skylar and my eyes~!
everything looked really good with her checkup. She was 14 lbs 10.5 ounces and 24 inches long.
She's kinda short and a little chunky! let's hope she grows out of that. ha ha
here are some recent pics for your viewing pleasure-

we just love those cheeks!

we love pink and brown

big girl in her bumbo

"skylars girls"

she looks so chunky in this picture!

on the 26th of May skylar and i celebrated our 5 year anniversary!!! YAY!!

he surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of roses and a sweet note to go along with it...and something with the note- tickets to Taylor Swift that night! he lined up a babysitter for the night and we enjoyed the night together! It had been awhile since it was just us 2! I seriously never knew someone could be so good live! She was so entertaining and talented! I've become obsessed with her now (even more than i already was) we had so much fun!! Thanks babe-

June brings the summer and busy weekends cause we are always doing something! i welcome it though! Bring on the warm weather!

we still exist!

I know it has been way too long since i last updated. Its been about a month since my last post and things have been going pretty good. We went to Mexico with the Widdison clan the first week of April. I wont go into great detail, but lets just say that because Ashlyn was sick and we got a bunch of things stolen out of our room, it wasn't the best trip we've ever had. Ashlyn did great on the plane and that was a great thing, but while we were there it just didn't really feel like much of a vacation. It was great, however, to be able to spend a lot of time with Skylar!

Easter was great. We went to the Widdisons 20 acres and had a big easter egg hunt and roasted hot dogs on the fire. Then later that afternoon we went to the Briggs and had another fun easter egg hunt and had a lot of fun. It's always good to get together with family!

Ashlyn is chunking up a ton and i feel like she changes every day! She is just over 13 lbs now and she is getting so fun! She smiles a lot and is starting to giggle!

This is Ashlyn on the last day in mexico. She was exhausted~

Mommy and her sweet babe

we love her smiles!

Ashlyn and daddy in their new easter clothes

she was staring at skylar and would just smile at him all day

Happy Family!
Sorry about the plethera of pictures but i had too many and it was hard to pick and choose!
We are so blessed to have this little girl in our lives!
We are going to see Wicked tonight and i can't wait! YAY!

Our baby is getting so big!

Ashlyn is such a doll! We just can't even believe how fast time is going though. She was 2 months old a week ago so we went and had her 2 month check up and everything looks great! She is growing like a champ and has doubled her weight! She is 10 lbs and 23 inches now. She did so good when she had to get her shots. She scrame for a minute and then was happy to be held by her daddy. Skylar adores this little girl!!
I thought i would put some new pics so you can all enjoy her chubby cheeks and double chin as much as we do!!

Sunday best!

So serious!

Sweet Girl

A little out of focus, but so happy!

6 weeks old

I can not believe how quick time goes by! My baby is already 6 weeks old and i am happy that she is growing strong and healthy, but i am also sad that she is growing up! Everyone says soak it all up cause time goes by too fast and it's sooooo true!
Skylar and i have not stopped our usual lifestyle of going going going. After all, it's what we did for 4 years before Ashlyn came! We went to St George 2 weekends in a row. It was a nice change of scenery, but poor little Ashlyn doesn't like being in the car for that long and i can't blame her. Also, it was quite a change to have to stop at some point to feed her, but it worked out fine.
We went to the Jazz game on Saturday night with Ryan and Kelsie and had a great time, but i was way sad to leave Ashlyn. I knew she was in good hands with my mom and dad, but it was crazy to leave her for the first time. It was a great time and i nice relief to just be a couple and have a fun time together!
I am going to start working again tomorrow and i definately have mixed feelings. I am happy to be seeing my awesome clients again, but sad to be taking time away from my baby! Wish me luck.
Mexico is coming up here in about 4 weeks and i am way looking forward to it!
pictures to come soon- can't seem to get them to download

Wow, i have not posted on here in a long time! Skylar has been awesome at keeping you all updated! There are some cute pictures that i have been wanting to put up so here we go...

this is Ashlyn and her cousins-
Sophie(6 months) and twins Dean and Elysee (5 months)
I'm sure this picture will be a favorite for a long time!

Sweetest thing ever!
There is nothing like the bond between a daddy and his daughter!
she adores him and he adores her!

I love pictures of her sleeping!
she looks like such a little angel!

She is changing so much every day!
I feel like she only wears an outfit once or twice and grows out of it!
We bought wayyyyyy too many clothes

She is such an alert baby when she is awake.
She loves to just look around and make lots of sweet baby noises.
I can not believe how fast time goes. She will be 4 weeks old tomorrow:( In a way it makes me sad to see her changing so fast, but i also look forward to the fun, cute new things she is going to start to do! I can't wait for her to smile in response to skylar and my voices! she smiles, but it's usually when she is sleeping.
Anyway, life as a new mom is the most rewarding, wonderful thing i have ever experienced. i love her more than i ever imagined and i love skylar more because of her! He is such a great dad and partner to me! Thanks babe!
