make it stop!!!

Brooklyn is growing up way too fast and I hate it!! she's 9 months old now and already trying to walk... she can stand up by herself for about 30 seconds and if you hold her hand she'll walk around with you. I just want her to stay at the crawling phase for a few more years... oh well, guess we'll have to just have another one :) haha well brooklyn is now on table food and she LOVES it! she is obsessed with saltine crackers, chicken nuggets, cucumbers, potatoes, peas, spaghetti, lasagna, and pretty much everything in between.

well the past couple weeks have been pretty stressful for me. I am trying to get all my school work done and with work i'm just a total mess. BUt i can do it :) Brooklyn just makes it impossible to get anything done. She is all over the place!!! she is such a good baby and doesn't really like to be held so she can sit and play by herself for hours.. its great :) however, she is getting into everything and putting everything in her mouth so i have to watch her like crazy.

For easter we went down to Las Vegas. Ammon and I went to Circus Circus because I have never been. It was pretty fun and we even saw P Diddy! we walked right past him but i didn't realize who he was until it was too late. I have never seen a celebrity before so it was kind of excited! We also went to the rainforest cafe.. pretty cool place, not so great food. Brooklyn liked all the decorations though.

She is now pointing at everything!!!!!!! it is so dang cute! she can say dog, mom, dada, ya, baba, and hi. she can wave hi and bye and claps her hands to everything. She loves to read books!!! she loves to turn the pages and point at everything. She is my beautiful baby girl and she makes me so happy. i love her so much.

Ammon and I are also training for a 5 k. HA! good luck to me! i haven't ran or worked out in years.. I'm not even joking. So we went running and i didn't even last 10 min and couldn't even run a mile. My whole mom's side of the family is trying to get into shape and eat healthier so its nice that we are al doing it together. I just have alot of work to do! and never have time to go running because its too cold for brooklyn still... So.. anyone in cedar who can watch brooklyn for like 15-30 min a day so i can go running i woud really appreciate it :)

Yeah I lucked out!!!

So I happened to be the luckiest guy in the world!!! Cortney and I have been married almost two years now and have a little bottle rocket of a daughter that has an amazing uptempo personality that loves this new adventure she's undertaking. So why am I the luckiest guy? It's been a bumpy road that Cortney and I have been traveling along for the short time that we've actually been together, but it's been worth more to me than anything else I've ever been exposed too. I'm incredibly fortunate to have found such a wonderful wife and friend! Yes, she pretty close to perfection and mature far beyond her years... My Sweetheart still gives me chills throughout my whole body and it's the best adrenaline rush I've ever had, she has sacrificed so much for me and I can't even imagine life without her. The way she makes me smile when i walk through the door when i get home, how she kisses me, the way her hips sway when she walks( I love it!!), her funny laugh when she's trying to be serious, how she cuddles up next to me and tryies to warm her hands by putting her freezing hands under my shirt...I just can't get enough of her!! But nothing can compare to the way my spirit radiates when she's next to me, i think I'm beginning to understand better what love is because of her. Cortney I love you and like I've said before no matter what I'll always love you and strive to become a better man for you. I can't wait to see how our children turn out as a result of the amazing mother and wife you are.
