Yesterday I took Adam to get pictures taken. I did not realize how expensive it was gonna be. It was around 150 dollars and that was even with a coupon to get the first pose free. It was worth it though. At first he wouldn't smile very much but in the end we got about half of the pictures with him smilng. They are so cute. When I get them I will scan them and post them.

Don't you just love it when your husband says one thing but really means another and then when you act upon the thing he origanally said he gives you a guilt trip? Well that happened today. We no longer needed our Chevy Malibu so we decided to sell it. We took it to carmax to see how much we could get out of it from them. Only 750. So Rusty says he wants to try and sell it to someone else. The guy tells us that it'll take a long time and there are alot of cars just like ours on Craigs list and KSL. Of course a salesman is gonna say that but alot of the things he said are true. So I say to Rusty that we should do it. So then he says fine and that it's up to me since it's my car. So I said we would sell it to them. Since it was only under my name I'm the one who had to do all the paperwork. Then on the way home guess who gave me a guilt trip? Yep! But then I told him a million reasons why it was a good idea to just sell it to them. Here are a few: 1. We would have had to fix a few things on it which we don't have the money for. 2. We would have had to do a major deep clean on the interior since it was Rusty's work car for a while. 3. We could really use the money we would be saving on car insurance and I didn't want to wait forever to sell it to someone else. And 4. We are currently trying to get a house so I just wanted one less thing to worry about. I think all of those things add up to the difference it would have been it we sold it to someone else. I really don't care if we could have gotten more money out of it. And who knows? Maybe we wouldn't have gotten any more out of it. I just didn't want to wait anymore.

2 Months

I can't believe Adam is 2 months old already! Time goes by way too fast. Today he had his 2 month check up and he hated it. He got his first immunizations and he screamed like I've never heard him scream before. It was way sad. But he calmed right down as soon as I picked him up. The Dr. said that he is in the 95 percentile for his weight and even higher than that for his height. He said he is the size of a 4 month old. He now weighs 13 lbs 5 oz and is 24.7 inches long. I can't believe how big he has gotten!

Adam is starting to get on a good sleeping schedule. The past few nights he has been going to bed at 8 and then he doesn't get up again until about 3 or 4 to eat. Then he'll go back to bed until about 6 to eat and then go back to bed again until 8 or 9. The naps aren't really on a schedule yet but he takes about 3 a day. He is such a good sleeper! He isn't ever really fussy unless he is tired, hungry or needs a diaper change. I really am blessed to have such a good baby!

I feel horrible

Today I got home from camping with my mom at Smith and Morehouse. Yesterday we decided to go fishing at the reservoir. So I don't know why but I decide to take Adam down by the water where she was fishing and was dumb and didn't bring the stroller or car seat down with me. As we are getting ready to leave I start walking up the hill with him sleeping in my arms. Well the stupid shoes I was wearing decided to slip on a rock and I fell and dropped Adam out of my arms. I watched him go down and land between 2 big rocks. I was so shocked and shaken. I immediately grabbed him and he was screaming at the top of his lungs. My mom was up the hill and didn't see what happened but I was shaking uncontrollably and starting to cry saying I dropped him. So she grabs him from me and tries to calm him down. Thankfully my Grandpa was there so he gave him a blessing right then and there. I felt a little better but I was still bawling like crazy. He stopped crying and fell back asleep but I was still crying uncontrollably. So my mom drove us to the park city urgent care clinic to get him checked out. Everything is fine. He just got a bump on his head with some bruising around it and some scratches on his face. The image of him falling will never leave my head and I will feel bad for the rest of my life. I am still mortified that it ever happened.
