The tree

It has been forever since I have blogged!! This thing called facebook has consumed my life! But anyway;
This will be the first of the last three christmas's I will actually be home, so Im a little excited to say the least to have my very own christmas tree!!! A christmas tree is a huge deal to me. My mom always made it a very important part of christmas. From the day after thanksgiving going to tree farms to pick one out, to the gorgeous orniments and lights that go on it. Yes, i love christmas trees! Back home there were tons of parking lot vendors that would put out their trees, or a nursery called angelos that we would go to. My mom always had the guy pull it out, twirl it and we would decide what one was the best. Grand Fir's were what I remember getting the most of, they smell so good! This year i picked out a douglas fir and im in love. The house smells wonderful, and it's a perfect shape and height! 7ft is all we did this year, until I inherit my mom's christmas ornimants, I don't have enough to go any bigger. I also forgot to put the ribbon around the tree, so it looks kinda plain. I actually don't have enough now, but Im not gettin a tree that is shorter than aaron.

Dominic is 4 months today, and has been the best part of my life! He is getting more fun to hang out with, and he laughs and talks all the time. We have his 4 month tomorrow, which means shots. He didn't do to bad last time, so im not to nervous. He has just about tripled his birth weight, and im not sure how tall he is. He is wearing some 0-3, but mostly 3 month stuff. Some 3-6 and it's so much fun to dress him!

Here are his christmas PJ's. I just had to.

Here is the before.....and the after!!

Just keeps getting better

Wow, has dominic grown the last week or what! He is 9lbs 2oz and looks like a chucky monkey! He is so great to hang out with, he smiles when you talk to him, he is cooing and he can just hang out on the couch or bed and be fine with it. He can actually make his bouncer move now when he is in it, he used to be too lite. He can hold his head up pretty good and had just about outgrown his newborn stuff! I knew i would love being a mom, but this kid has far surpassed my expectations of how much i could love anything! I dont know if any other child could be any cuter. I finally decided on a video camera and it should be here soon so I can start capturing these precious moments.

Too cute

Monday, October 5, 2009


Dominic was blessed by his uncle Adam, great uncle Rick, Papa Terry and the bishop yesterday. It was a great experience. Aaron's brother adam put it together and had a delicious meal planned for the family after. We are so thankful for that, thanks everyone! MK let us borrow a blessing outfit, which looked like a dress on little D, just so you know it was not a dress.

Shane had to take some pics.....

Luckily becky was there to actually aim.....

Thanks Teresa

My friend Teresa, who is a photographer, offered to take pics of Dominic so she could get some newborn practice. So last week we headed to her house and dominic did great! He was awake for some and finally fell asleep for some too. He was kinda hard to pose, but didn't mind us trying to get him into a ball. Here are the final products and I love them! Thanks again Teresa, they turned out great!

Gettin bigger

Here is a newborn outfit I figured Dominic could maybe wear home from the hospital, and that's it. Well, lucky me ( i guess ) he doesn't even fit into it yet :) It is by far one of my favorite fit's for him that my grandma bought him! And he is sucking his thumb!!! I do not want a child that is a thumb sucker. He doesn't do it too often, and only for a few minutes, usually when he his hungry. Ill tell ya, this little guy is the most adorable thing in the world!

My little guy

Turned 1 month yeterday!!! Holy cow, I have a 1 month old. He is such a blessing to our life, and I couldn't imagine anything more perfect! I still think of bootsy often, who was adopted. I don't know the guy, but plan on asking the place she was being boarded if I can get a hold of him. I wish I new what she was up to everyday. I love her so much too! Dominic had his 2nd Dr.appt toaday, he is 6lbs 1 oz, 19.7in and the cutest baby ever. So he has gained a little over a pound since leaving the hospital 3 weeks ago, and grown almost 2 inches. He also got circumsized, he held my hand the whole time and did pretty good. I think since the numbing has worn off this evening he has been having a hard time. I can tell I will need to sleep holding him tonight. My days are getting a little less hectic, im still working on a schedule and trying to keep the house cleaned. Since my mom got us a swing, that has made things easier. Now he can watch me while I clean. Aaron has been the best dad you can be, doesn't ask twice when I ask him to get me my phone or a drink that are 5 inches away from me when he is in the back bedroom because I can't get up if I am pumping or feeding. He loves to fall asleep with dominic on his stomach, and he loves holding him. Im still getting used to the whole mom thing, and don't feel much different. I thought I would feel different. I guess having considered bootsy my baby for 5 years, I have always felt motherly.
