We got a new home not too far from here and are in the process of fixing it up. We have been putting our heart, soul and time into our new home for the past month and still feel like there is a lot left to do. We are needing to be in there by the end of this month. Can we do it? I don't know, right now it seems almost impossible. Jaxon is also turning 2 this week. Amongst all the craziness with this new home, having a new born, and packing I will find the time to have a little birthday party for my handsome young man.

Connor Graham Halbert!

Connor Graham Halbert arrived on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011 at 4:09am. He weighed 7 pounds 6 ounces and was 20 inches long. He happened to be 16 days early so it was a little unexpected, but hey I won't complain. It was around 11:30 pm Monday night when I started to have contractions. They were only 7 minutes apart and not unbearable, so I just tried to ignore them. By the time 12:30 hit they were 2 minutes apart and very unbearable. So I got Jared up and we arrived to the hospital around 1 am. Everything happened pretty quick, except for the last 30 minutes felt like forever. My nurse decided to call the doctor when I was dilated to a 10 and Connor's head was almost out. Did I mention she had to call him at home. He lived 15 minutes away! Oh and did I also mention that he showed up about 25 minutes later because he couldn't find his car keys. I had to lay there for that long squeezing my legs together to try to keep Connor from coming out. As soon as the doctor got there everything went well though. It was 4 pushes and he was out. Over all everything went really good and smooth for me, I feel pretty lucky. We are extremely happy to have Connor in our lives. We now have two precious boys and feel very lucky and blessed. Pictures are to come.

Belly Picture at 37 weeks

Sorry I am a little late on posting this, but here is my silly prego picture. I never like taking these pictures they are awkward to me.

Transportation Day!

I get this thing through email called the Active Mom Magazine. If you haven't heard of it, it is a magazine that shows a bunch of free or cheap events going on around the valley for a whole month. One of the events that was listed was this Transportation Day. It was this big parking lot full of different vehicles and activities. It was a lot of fun! Jared I think enjoyed it more than Jaxon.

This was a giant monster truck that had party lights and fog going.

Wild life Zoo/ Aquarium trip!

Jared's mom teaches Preschool and they took a field trip a month ago to the Wild Life Zoo/ Aquarium place. She was very kind to invite me and Jaxon along.

Just like daddy!

Jaxon loves to do anything Jared is doing. Whenever he see's Jared on his phone, Jaxon always grabs the I-Pod and plays on it. Yes, it is true Jaxon knows how to work the I-Pod. He unlocks it and goes to the game he wants and plays it. Should I be proud or embarrassed, I am not sure. It is dang cute though.

Utah Trip!

We went to visit Jared's brother and sister in law in Utah back in January. It was a really nice, relaxing vacation.

Jaxon's first plane ride. He LOVED it!

We went and walked around temple square. That place is beautiful!

Jaxon decided to lock him and his cousin Hudson up in the dog kennel.

Jaxon was having a good time helping us put up Christmas lights this past Christmas. He thought it was fun wrapping himself up in them.

I love when Jared plays around with his camera. He captures the cutest pictures of my precious baby boy.

I found these pictures just now and thought they are too cute not to post. This was a few months ago, Jared was just playing around with his camera.

Since I have been a stay at home mom I discovered I love to bake! I am not that great, but it is fun and it is relaxing to me. I like to put my own little twist on recipes just to spruce them up a bit. Also, it is all easy stuff to do. I wanted to share two of my recent foods I have made that turned out super yummy. A couple days ago I was craving muffins, so I pulled out a strawberry muffin mix out of pantry. I thought it would be fun to add some white chocolate chips in the mix to add some more flavor. Then I thought, hey why not melt some white chocolate chips and drizzle that on top of the muffins when they are finished baking. These muffins turned out delicious! I know they aren't the most healthy, but its ok to splurge every once in a while, right? The other twist I did was to pancakes. I tried two different things on these. I used just a regular mix and then added shredded apple and chopped almond. The second time I made them I added mushed bananas instead of the apple. There are supper delicious and actually pretty healthy. If you want them even more healthy, use a whole wheat pancake mix. Anyways, I thought I would share some of my silly little twist in baking.
