What the???

So, Will has decided he no longer wants to sleep like a champ. He's been waking up a least 3 times a night to eat. I guess he's going through a growth spurt. Little punk, mom needs her sleep! hehe only kidding, I love him...but I do need my sleep :P

So, once in a blue moon...

I think that's about how often I've been writing in this thing! I know, I'm horrible. And I must apologize to Kara for being a SLACKER! Sorry! I do love you!

Just to update everyone about what has been going on here, life has been great! Will is getting SO big! (I'll post pictures later) He laughs, smiles, and LOVES to hit things! We have this little gym thing for him, it's got fish that hang so he can hit them with his hands and a ball at his feet so he can kick it! It's so cute! He just giggles and coos every time he plays it. He's started sleeping an average of 11 hours a night, only waking up once. I owe it all to The Happiest Baby on the Block and Dr. Karp's method. If you are going to have a baby, read it. NOW! The weather has been great here, so we have been playing outside everyday. Will loves to be outside. One day last week, it was too cold to be outside, but I wanted to get some fresh air, so I took Will with me to check the mail, when we came back inside, he was SO mad. I am glad that he enjoys being outside though.

Our good friends the Davey's are leaving us and moving across the country to New Hampshire. We will miss them so much! Andy is going to drive with Brandon on Wednesday, leaving Will and I to fend for ourselves! (only kidding, we're gonna stay with Andy's mom) I am not quite ready to stay by myself at night. I know, what a sissy huh? It's ok though, my grandma bought me a sewing machine and while Andy is gone, I'm gonna make some curtains for our living room.

Andy has started working weekends at Rio Tinto stadium for the Real Salt Lake Soccer Team, working for the box office. He really likes it. Also, as the nice weather has started showing up, we got the scooter out! We love our Scoot and I can't wait to take it for a spin...too bad it is going to be raining all weekend :(

Andy's been preparing for the MCAT and I will be honest...I can NOT wait for it to be OVER!

In about 4 weeks, Will is going to have a new cousin! Little Kenz! We are so excited for Cass to have her baby! It'll be so fun! Even if his new cousin is a girl :P

I have been nursing Will since we brought him home from the hospital. As most of you know, it's not been a cake walk for us. I've been exercising a lot lately, and I didn't realize that pushing myself too hard could be drastic for my milk supply. I noticed that Will was getting really fussy and he was always pulling away when it was time to eat, so I decided to give him a bottle and pump, to see how much I could get. I barely got an ounce. So, I have started taking Fenugreek (Thanks Meghan!) I've only been taking it for one day, but Will hasn't gotten annoyed with eating yet today, let's hope he keeps it up and I can too.

Sorry I've been such a slacker. I promise I will post pictures of Will soon :)

What a Sweet Spirit

Last night Andy and I had the opportunity to go tot he Jordan River Temple with my grandparents and do the endowment and sealing for my grama's Grandparents and her daddy. My Grama is a 1st generation LDS, and it was so amazing to do the work for people so close to us. My Grampa stood in as my Great-Great Grandpa Corchel Caldwell Mullis, SR. My Grama stood in as my Great-Great Grandma, Hattie Elizabeth, Andy stood in for my PawPaw, Corchel Caldwell Mullis, JR and I stood in for my Great-Great-Great Aunt Thelma Elizabeth (she died when she was about 4 months old). This past St. Patrick's Day was the 11th Anniversary of my PawPaw's death. It was so amazing, you could just feel their Spirits in the room, rejoicing with us. Such a nice thing to be able to do with my Grandparents. Afterward, we went to Texas Roadhouse, talk about YUM! I got a steak, baked potato and ceaser salad. Andy got a rack of ribs, steak, sweet potato(YUCK) and veggies....it's very rare that we get to go out to eat, let alone by some steaks!

We left Will with our good neighbors, the Thatcher's. They took SUCH good care of him! He fell asleep over there at around 10, we picked hm up around 11, and I took him out of his swaddle, took off his clothes so he was just in a onesie, RE-swaddled him, and he didn't wake up ONCE! He then slept until about 3, ate...and only took at 10 minutes, slept again until about 7, ate, again only took like 10 minutes, then him and Andy slept on the sofa until TEN! 12 hours! I couldn't believe it! Needless to say, Andy was LATE LATE LATE to school...but oh well. He didn't get to see Will at all yesterday and I think it's more important for them to bond then for Andy to be on time to school.

Tonight we are going to my cousin Kricket's house for a mini-family reunion and baby shower...since we never got to do our shower with them because Will came early. I am so excited!
