The Grass is Always Greener...

...when it's new. Finally the yard has some grass, and it's beautiful. I look out at it all the time, and picture Jude and I laying around in it. We have to stay off of it for two weeks and then we are going to have a baby party, since the neighborhood now has three babies. And if you are reading this and have a baby, or don't, and you want to come over and spend the day with me and Jude and some other adorable infants, let me know.

My dear dear friend Michelle is getting married to my new dear friend Caleb, who is a perfect match for her. It is so amazing to watch your friends find love and start families. Oh yeah, they get married in two weeks! I am helping with the planning of the wedding as well as photographing it, which means that I had to step down from being a bridesmaid. That was a sad thing to do, but I have to photograph this wedding, and I can't be everything at once. I am good, but not that good. I would also go crazy not being the one taking the pictures cause I have seen her in her wedding dress and man..she looks good. Caleb is not going to be able to take his eyes off of her. Although I don't think he can anyway.

Montana De Oro

Jude and I went to the beach today with Jesse Hurlburt and his niece and nephew, and David Wilson and his son Hezekiah. 
I have not seen Hezekiah in so long and was surprised with how much he has grown up. He was also very interested in catching crabs. He offered to hold them and sat in the tide pool picking up the hermit crabs. Quite a brave little boy. I am excited for Jude to be that age. He mostly slept in his pack, I guess I shouldn't have expected anything more from a 2 month old. 
It was good for me to get out and hike around. I would like the lose all this pregnancy weight, and walking around the block twice a week isn't doing anything.

Introduction to my family

I am sure there won't be many, if at all, reading this that don't know me. But as for a little introduction...I am a new mom and a wife. My husband Jesse and I have been married now for just over three years, and are parents to a 7 week, 3 day old named Jude. He is amazing, as I am sure all mothers feel about their children. But he truly is. He is so much more than I ever could have imagined. 

He's a sleep right now, after a long day of doing nothing. I can't believe someone can sleep as much as he does. He almost sleeps through the night, I am able to put him down around 11pm then he wakes up once at around 3:30 or 4. Which is nice for Jesse. Jesse has to be at work at 5:30am so he is usually waking up around then to get ready for work. So this way he gets a few minutes to hug and kiss Jude in the morning before leaving. I am sure that Jude does it on purpose. Well, then Jude goes back to sleep and doesn't wake up again until around 7am. So I am getting plenty of sleep. Something I am VERY thankful for.
