Trenton at 4 months

I was going through some pictures last night &
I found this one.Trenton was about 4 months old & we were trying the spoon again & this is what we got! He looks terrified!
He did really good that day.He really didn't like the rice cereal,this was the last time we tried the rice because I kept getting looks like this one.
He likes the baby food now,more veggies than fruits & he LOVES to eat whatever we have.I am so thankful we have cameras to catch cute little moments like this one.It helps us to remember them forever!

My beautiful view!

As I was doing the dishes one day I looked up to see this beautiful sunset. This picture hardly does it justice, it is so pretty.Everyday when I do the dishes I get to see the beautiful East mountains of Utah & my breath gets taken away. I love the window over the sink it is the best window in our house so many things to look at & such a great view!

A goal for 2009

I am committing myself to a goal.Some people call them resolutions,others goals & some people refuse to make such thing! I personally like resolution it just sounds fancy & I find myself not taking "goals" that I make through out the year very seriously. My Resolution is common with many this time of year,I want to lose my baby weight.I kept 20 lbs of baby weight & I am not proud of that & on top of that I was 15 lbs heavier than I wanted to be when I got pregnant...so it all adds up to 35-40 lbs. I started this life change on December 23, 2008. One more week was just too long to wait! My goal is small & simple not to overwhelm myself. I want to lose 1 (one) pound a week.I know that is small but by the end of the month it is 4 lbs & that adds up.My ultimate goal is 40lbs by October...see it makes sense! I have in the first month of my new lifestyle lost 5 lbs. 35 more to go! So each month around the 24th I will post my progress & a picture.I don't really have pictures for this post so I am using this picture from October 2008 as my "before" picture.( I will always have a full wardrobe on, no swim suites!) Now let me explain why I am using this picture & what the picture is.These are our friends from L-R Misty & Brandon, us, Adam & Shanna.The U.S. Navy has its birthday on October 13th.So the Saturday after the 13th the Navy has a Birthday Ball the guys don't like it as much as we do, but we LOVE it! We get to get dresses up & be rewarded for our hard duties as Navy wives(A title we hold honorably) this is a night that we get to be dined & danced with & not worry if our husbands are in danger. I chose this picture, one to share the night with you & two it is the best before picture I have & three this was the picture that made me want to lose the weight.In this picture I saw what everyone else looks at.The reason I say it like that is because in the mirror that night I saw a different girl, I saw the 40lb lighter girl, just one half hour later while we were taking these pictures I saw the 40lb heavier girl,it was the first time I admitted I put on weight.That was hard.But I guess the first step to change is admitting you need to. The reason my goal is October '09 is because I want to know that in a years time from this picture when we go to the Navy ball I can look back & see my progress.I can feel beautiful in the dress that I will wear.
So wish me luck & I'll have another picture for you in a month.I wish the best of luck to you on your New Years Resolutions!

Here I am blogger world!




So I have finally joined the world of blogging!
I have,in many past days,read a lot of my friends blogs from all over the world & decided that I should create my own little space in the Internet world. I hope I don't bore you, So lets get started.
I am married to who I consider to be the best man in the world.He chased me for years until I finally came to my senses & realized what he knew all along...we are meant for each other.He is my best friend & hero.
Robert has been in the U.S. Navy for almost 7 years & is currently going to the U of U(tah) he is studying "the inner workings of the Earth"(quote by Adam M.)Geololgy.In about 1 1/2 years we will transfer to Pensacola FL. where Robbie will learn how to be a fighter pilot.I am so excited for him to be able to follow his dreams.Another reason I love him is because he works 2 jobs & picks up little jobs here & there so I can stay home with Trent he knows that that means the most to me.As I create this blog he is working a job until 2 am out in the freezing cold weather mingling with the stars.literally, he is working the front door at a sundance party!

We have a 9 month old son, Trenton.He is awesome! He is growing like a weed. some things about him.
* He has 8 teeth.Poor kid has been teething since 2 months of age!
* He's walking still wobbly but he does it!
*He eats everything & is pretty good at feeding himself with his fingers.
*He LOVES to "sing" & dance to music...super cute!
*He loves his keyboard & my piano
*He will copy the amount of times you tap something.
I love watching him grow I can't believe he is working on 10 months old,Wow it goes by so fast.

Some things about me.I am a stay home mom & I love it.Trenton really is the best "boss" I have ever had! I like to scrapbook & make cards ( thanks honey for supporting my fetish!),Play the piano,workout, hang out with friends host parties & cook & clean,crazy huh!(I'm OCD what can I say!) I like to Travel.I want to visit every state in America & go to Europe.I'm working on that goal,I have been to many states but no passport...yet! I loved living in Virginia & can't wait to get back to the East coast.If you have never been back east I recommend it!
Well I think that sort of catches you up.I'm going to go try to figure this fancy blog page stuff out...Did I mention I love to create & decorate!
stick around!
