Back from Texas

So our week in Dallas is already finished. It's amazing to me how fast something goes by when you've been looking forward to it. Ethan was incredible on the plane, he either slept, ate, or was just happy. I don't know if Heavenly Father gave him to me as my son because I couldn't handle a harder baby, but I'm grateful. We stayed at Sarah and Gary's house, which is incredibly nice. We spent the week hanging out, shopping, watching movies, and just being together as a family. It's so rare that we get to do that now, that it was just really nice. Aiden was excited to help out with Ethan, and was incredibly cute with him. We took Ethan swimming for the first time on Thursday, and though he was a little apprehensive, I think he enjoyed it. Posted is a picture of Ethan and Aiden in their matching swimsuits. We came home Friday, and now we're having Collin stay with us for a couple of days. Ian's having surgery and my parents will be at the hospital with him for the most part. So Dallas was a nice getaway for everyone before poor little Ian has to have yet another surgery.

Well, I'll hurry and give a little update in my life. PJ and I are very happy adjusting to life as parents. We have a great little home, that's perfect for our family. PJ was selling cars, but the time commitment verses the pay was not really great, so he is now being a house doctor to my parents. He's trying to find a new job that will allow him more time with us and to go to school. Speaking of school, I will be heading to Grad. school this Fall! I'm very excited and nervous. I'm still deciding which school I want to go to, but I will most likely go to USU because of their excellent American Studies/Folklore program. This Sunday we're headed to Texas for a week to visit Sarah, Gary, Aiden, and Jake! It should be pretty fun, but I'm nervous to take Ethan on an airplane. I hope he does well, and doesn't scream the whole time. Either way, we should have lots of pictures to share when we get back! I'm going to the gym now, I'll post again soon! Love Always, Kate :)

Ethan at 3 months

Hi Everyone! I've been meaning to do this for awhile, so I can keep people updated on what's going on in my life. Especially those of you who live far away. Ethan is growing so fast! Yesterday he turned three months! He is smiling and cooing, and he can almost role from his back to his stomach. I spend most of my time being a mom, but take a little time to work out. PJ and I even got to go to a movie on Thursday (Pirates)! It's the first one we've gone to since he was born and it was kind of weird leaving him. My mom watched him for us, which was very kind of her. It's crazy how when you become a mom it consumes your whole life. When I'm not with Ethan, I'm thinking about him, and missing him. I don't know if those who don't have kids can have any idea of the absolute love it brings into your life, at least I didn't before I was one. Here is a picture of Ethan at 3 months, isn't he just the cutest thing!
