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}

Kimmie’s visit


Kimmie came down to Utah last week for Ford’s Baptism and was able to baby sit Ford for a few days. She loved it! And I’m pretty sure Ford loved it too! He loves to snuggle, and he got lots (and LOTS) of snuggles! Here are a few pics from her baby tending adventures. Ford got to meet Grammy (Kim’s Grandmother-in-Law) and Granddad (Kim’s daughters’ grandpa). As you can see he was a smiley little guy and loved (LOVED) all {Read More}

Ford’s Baptism


We got Ford baptized on Saturday, November 9th at my church, St. Francis of Assisi. (For those of you who might not know, I am Catholic. Sundance was raised in the LDS church, but is no longer active.) We had all our family there for the baptism ceremony (I wish I had gotten a big group photo). It was so nice to have everyone there to celebrate with us. I’m sure my Grandma Marge was watching from heaven with a {Read More}



  This was Ford’s first official holiday and we were so excited to dress him up! We saw this Mike Wazowski onesie set at the Disney store this summer and Diz fell in love. In fact, he wanted to buy it in newborn size so we could bring Ford home from the hospital in it. I put the kibosh on that pretty quick. But when we started thinking about Halloween and costumes I knew we had to get him that {Read More}

38 Weeks!


How far along? 38 Weeks! Only 2 weeks until I’m due! That’s crazy!  Baby Urie is weighing in at close to seven pounds and hitting the height charts at the 21-inch mark (or less) (according to What to Expect). He’s shedding vernix and lanugo into the amniotic fluid. His lungs are continuing to develop and he’s producing surfactant (the stuff that will prevent his lungs from sticking together when he starts to breathe.)  Feeling lots of movement still, and I can tell he’s dropped {Read More}

35 weeks (and 2 days!)

35 weeks

How far along? 35 Weeks (and 2 days)! Baby Urie is 5 1/2 pounds and probably 20 inches long (according to What to Expect). Most of his physical development is done. His job now is just adding fat. #YayChubRolls! At my last appt, my Dr. said he was already head down! His big booty is still in my ribs all day long!  I’m still feeling a lot of movement, lots of pushing and small kicks. Total weight gain: I think this is actually (finally) {Read More}

28 weeks

28 wks

How far along? 28 Weeks – welcome to the 3rd trimester! Baby Urie is weighing in at 2 1/4 pounds and measuring 15 inches from head to heels. He can blink his eyes, and is now sporting lashes. His eyesight is developing, he may be able to see the light that filters in through my belly (we should play with flashlights!). He’s also developing billions of neurons in his brain (he’ll be smart like his Momma) and adding more body fat {Read More}

24 weeks


How far along? 24 weeks! The belly has officially POPPED! No hiding that belly anymore! Size of Baby?  As long as an ear of corn (about 12 inches) and weighing in at just over 1 pound! Maternity clothes? oh yeah. I had to buy more scrubs for work to fit my big booty!  (Thanks to a lady on KSL I got a steal of a deal on a TON of scrubs). I also recently bought some maternity workout capris – definitely more comfortable {Read More}
