Jules and teddy

Today Brett made me realize that it's been 3 weeks since I've updated our blog. Wow, does time fly by. There really wasn't much to say and we hadn't taken any new pictures so I didn't have anything to post. I had to take this picture today of Jules because she found a new friend. I gave her this teddy bear today to see if she would like it and to my surprise she loves it. She's such a cuddler so now she has something to cuddle with when she sleeps. It's really cute.

Here are some updates:

-This past week I went back to work managing the bakery at my old job Culinary Crafts. I realized how much I love being a stay at home mom. The first couple of days were hard since it was the longest I had been away from Jules. We are lucky enough that Brett was able to be with her instead of having to have a baby sitter. I don't miss the early mornings that's for sure. If you want to see some of my work you can go to anything that is bakery related is stuff that I made.
-We had something very exciting happen to us. I got a new job as an assistant manager to an apartment complex called Ventana (to see more go to We will be moving to the complex and getting free rent, plus $500 a month for only working 2 mornings a week and every other Saturday for 4 hours. The apartment includes free utilities, cable, internet, washer and dryer, dishwasher and is 4 bedrooms making it 1300 square feet. It's such a great deal for us right now. We will be saving over $1000 a month, we are very excited. Not only all of that but we will be getting out of the basement and getting some good natural sun light. On the same day I got the job we also sold our keyboard and washer and dryer and Brett got his grant $. Can I just tell you how blessed we are. Oh, and since we will be moving I won't have to be in the nursery anymore which I am way excited about.
-Brett started school and they decided to change his curriculum on him so he had to rearrange his schedule a bit.
-I thought Jules was getting a tooth but luckily she's not.
-Jules is rolling over like crazy. She can only go from stomach to back.
-Jules is still not growing although today she decided that she wanted to eat every 2 hours instead of every 3 hours.
-Brett and I for the first time we apart for more than 24 hours since last February when we were engaged. He went up to Ogden for Acappella stock while I stayed home. He spent Friday night there which is the first time other than when I was in the hospital that we didn't sleep in the same bed since we've been married.
-I have now officially bored you to death with our lives and now you will hope that I never go 3 weeks without writing again so you don't ever have to go through this torture again!

I'm growing

Even though Jules isn't gaining much weight she is still growing. She is now turning from her stomach to her back by herself. She hates being on her back so when she does she starts screaming but she is growing. When we hold her, she likes to stand up a bit too so we thought this was a sign that she would like this new toy of hers...

...she might need a little more time.

Trip to Idaho

Brett and I went up to Idaho to visit my sister and her family. We were going to go from Monday until Thursday but ended up staying until Saturday. We didn't have anything to come home to. I was busy scrapbooking baby pictures and helping Cheryl paint her office and Brett was busy passing Paper Mario on their Wii. This is a picture of Jules touching the grass for the first time.
As you can see she didn't like it that much
