FACT: I have the cutest baby Fae Marie in the whole world. End of Story. Oh, and I love her.
Oh, and she is wearing Hurley jeans because she is a little punk-rockin baby. haha my favorite.






Future: Decided.

After many talks and prayerful conversation, we decided then best thing for us is to move asap. So After a quick visit to Florida with my family, and another visit with Jarom's we will pack up all our stuff and move to St. Louis!(Jarom says we have to be where ever we decide by May 1st.. so thats not much time considering we get back from Florida the 23rd!) We are still debating whether or not to sell, or go to NY, but at least the real stuff has been decided. We are just so ready for a change, and have a fresh start. I think that we will be so happy and have so much fun in St. Louis.. although it is going to be tough.. for Jarom because he will be in school, and for me because I wont have anyone around to help me with Fae. Either way though, it is time to take that next step together and I'm glad to be doing it with him..

Sorry I haven't updated in a while, but pictures are coming, don't you worry your little heads about that.

Things I don't talk about often...

I am grateful for Jarom's Family. (This is not to say that I'm not grateful for mine, because I am... I really am). But I think that I should take time right now to say what I want to say. I complain a lot, mostly because I feel it’s unfair that we live to close to Jarom’s family, and I'm jealous because mine is so far away. However, I think that it has been a blessing to have had them so close. They have helped us in so many ways, and have taught me a lot about the importance of family relationships.

Even though Jarom and I grew up in different parts of the country, and in completely different families, I think the things we learned from our parents, sibling and associates are an awesome benefit to our own family.
I'm not going to lie, when Jarom and I were first married I was extremely frustrated at how close he was with his family. We "discussed" it all the time... more recently however, I've realized that I was the one that was wrong. Of course there were things we both needed to change... but for the most part; I needed to take a step back and stop being so jealous. Which was reallllllly hard for me, REALLY hard. But so worth it. Since I've come to know his family better and better over the past few years, I've grown to truly appreciate and love them.

So here’s to things I don't often talk about, but sometimes need to be said.

This is the life..

How would it be?? (Pardon the sexy guy in the background haha)



She is SUCH a princess... seriously. And the smartest cutest, loveliest baby ever...
She holds her bottle, puts her binky in all by herself, can ALMOST roll from back to front (which will be on a video I am uploading soon) and is getting REALLY good at eating her cereal! Plus she knows her name, as well as "princess" haha.. I told you she really does think shes a princess.





Ok, here is the video (its a little long, but hey! shes my baby and I love to watch her!):

She also REALLY likes to yell... I think she thinks shes not being paid attention too, which of course, is RIDICULOUS. :) Love this girl!

The pants..

Jarom has this pair of pants that I hate. Yes, I bought them for him, however, this was over 2 years ago.. and they really need to be retired. He thinks they look classy, and I think they look like he is expecting some sort of flash flood. I really doubt we would have a flash flood here in Idaho, but i guess you never know right? (hence FLASH haha) If we do though, he is prepared to not get those "classy pants" wet!



He is pretty cute though, don't you think??

My progress...

This is what I looked like when we started this "challenge"

Remember??

This is now:


My baby is a Koala Bear

First of all my baby is huge.. she is 15 lbs right now and I can't believe it. Really, I can't!! She is getting SO big so fast! She has basically out grown everything she has, and we are out of hand-me-downs.. so if you know anyone who wants to give away little baby girl clothes 6-9 months.. tell them I am in need!! haha.. seriously though, we've been feeding her cereal more often and she is getting reallly good at it! Today, she only spit it out once! I was so proud, yet kinda sad cuz' this means my baby is growing up.. :(

Anyway, heres a funny things she has been doing.. I know its normal, and a milestone or whatever, but shes been grabbing at her feet and trying to eat them! I think its so cute! Jarom says she looks like a koala bear.





But here are some other pictures..
Have you even seen a butt that looks more like a heart in your whole life?


And look how huge she is!! Those are size 2 Diapers!!! What a monster!! She has been talking and talking and YELLING and throwing fits and just being the sweetest most perfect precious baby in the world! I legitimately think she is kissed WAY more than the average baby.. One day Jarom kissed her 50 times in a row.. but he usually does this anyway.. and that was just at one time! He still kisses her all day long too!



And this is a picture of her in a super cute onesie that my friend Christine made for her for her baby shower.. it says her name on the butt! haha I love it!


Ok one more just cuz I love her face, even when shes not smiling!



Also, we are still unsure of what to do over the summer, although Jarom has been really considering selling for APX this summer.. there are a lot of pros and cons to that.. but since Jarom is always good at everything, I'm sure we will come out on top. We are really happy about moving to St. Louis. I know it's going to be hard for Jarom, since he's never left his home town.. but it will be an awesome experience for us. I have never really been a homebody, but St. Louis is a mere 17 hr drive from NY which is a heck of a lot closer than Idaho, so I'm pretty excited about that. However, I have been thinking about poor little Fae! Her first birthday will be so lame! We will have been in St. Louis a month and we probably still wont know anyone so poor baby will just have to have a small party with mom and dad haha.. she wont remember anyway.
