Ford 4 months


My baby is 4 months! How is this possible?! I swear he was just born yesterday. As a new mom you hear “enjoy every little moment because they grow up so fast” and I used to think, “yeah, yeah, yeah” – but you know what?! It’s true! There are days when I wake up and get him out of the crib and I swear he’s grown an inch or two and gained a few pounds. I sure love this little {Read More}

Grandpa Garth

Grandma Marge 079

Just thought I’d share my Grandpa’s obituary. He really was such a cool guy and accomplished SO much in his 89 years. His services were earlier this week and everything went so well. We shared many memories, lots of laughter and tears. We will miss him dearly but I am so happy that he is back with my Grandma.   On New Year’s Day, Garth Ford passed away, surrounded by his family. He was born July 26, 1924 in Provo, {Read More}

Heaven got another angel tonight…


My Grandpa Garth passed away tonight. Definitely not the best way to start a new year. Thankfully, he passed away peacefully and pain free and is finally reunited with my Grandma Marge. He was one of the coolest grandpa’s around and we will miss him so much. Ford is actually named after him – Ford is my Grandpa’s last (and Mom’s maiden) name. I regret not getting baby Ford over to see him more often and am so sad he {Read More}

Merry Christmas from the Urie’s!!


Santa – I know him!


We took Ford to meet Santa last night at Riverwoods. My parents met us there (and stood in line for us, which meant less time out in the cold) and we had so much fun! Not sure what he’s looking at… the fur on Santa’s coat perhaps? this is what happens when you have 4 adults trying to get a baby to smile well… that’s a little better, he’s at least looking at the camera. Mom Fail – I only {Read More}

Ford’s 3 month photoshoot


I am so THRILLED with how these photos turned out. Kristina Curtis is an amazing photographer! I’m so glad we decided to do the first year package with her. He’ll get photos taken every 3 months for the first year. So worth the investment! isn’t that box the cutest? I am kicking myself in the butt for not bringing it to his newborn shoot. Kristina and I talked about bringing it to the next 3 shoots so we can track {Read More}

Ford 3 months


I can’t believe my little boy is already 3 months. He is such a cute little stinker and I’m pretty sure I fall more in love with him every day. He is such a happy baby. Sure, he gets fussy when he’s hungry or tired, but when he has one of those meltdown type fits (or what my Mom calls “hollering”) I will sometimes check his temperature because I think he might be sick or running a fever because he {Read More}

Rethink your day with the new Polar Loop


DISCLOSURE: The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Polar. You guys all know how much I am LOVING being Ford’s Momma. Honestly, I’d be content to park myself in our rocking chair and hold him all day long. But… #1- that’s not possible – the bills have to be paid (they won’t take diapers for payment – bummer). And #2- I need to get back into shape. I gained a lot of weight when I was {Read More}

Ford 2 months


gosh… could I be any later on his 2 month update?! I still can’t believe that Ford is already 2 months. Time has just been flying by. I am loving life with Ford and I’m so glad we have him in our lives. I can’t imagine life without him. I keep telling myself we should have had babies years ago, it’s so much fun being a mom. Weight: 11lbs 8.5oz Height: 23 3/4” Doctor Appointment: Ford had his 2 month {Read More}
