No house

I was hesitant to tell people we bought a house but once I figured they accepted our offer and we had been approved for the loan all that was left was an inspection. The house was flipped so I figured since it has passed inspection recently it probably would pass again so I figured lets announce it!

Our Realtor just called. Turns out the broker company accepted two offers. Silly I know, probably doesn't happy very often. Ours was the second so we are out of luck. Oh well, we probably weren't supposed to be there. Just thought I'd let you all know.

We bought a house!!!!

We are so excited and a little nervous at the same time, but mostly excited! It will be fun to have a place of our own! It is in clearfield and it is on a not busy street which is something I really wanted. It has a fenced in yard, 5 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, a living room and a family room, 2,100 square feet, new carpet, new paint fun stuff like that. We can't wait. We will be closing on September 28th but we are going to move in with my parents for a month to save a little. We are so sad to leave Farmington but please stay friends with us everyone!! So, here is the link to the house if you want to take a look. I don't have much else to add... maybe later. Yay!

Ok so the link doesn't work anymore, I think because they took the listing off of the website. So here is a picture of the outside. I know it doesn't show much so we will put some pictures up later.

3rd year anniversary!!!

BEWARE: Mushy-ness galore!
3 of the best years I have ever lived has flown by me, and as I look back at many ignorant naysayers, I am absolutely more in love today than I was on March 5th 2006. Negative humans that do not allow love to drive their marriages multiple times imparted their ignorance to me saying that the giddiness won't last and that I would be praying for a break, or that we would be sick of each other in 1 year. I would like to tell all of them, (although their intentions were not to degrade or consciously display their ignorance) that not only were they completely off the beaten path, but that they must be missing something and I feel bad for them, pity them really. I do not profess the perfect marriage, or to know all things pertaining to eternal relationships. Actually I understand I have a lot to learn... I digress... Danelle has been my best friend for 3 years and my eternal companion for only a little shorter time than that. I still miss her when I go to work, I can still get lost in her eyes and I always want to be with her wherever we go! Beyond being the perfect wife and making our home a Temple, she is the most amazing Mother! She gives everything to Kade and has made him so happy. She is always wanting to be better and helps me be a better Priesthood holder. I love discussing principles and doctrines and scriptures with her because she always sheds new light on whatever we are speaking about. I will spend the rest of eternity falling more in love with my best friend! Thanks Danl!!!

4 month stats

So we went to Kade's doctor's appointment today. Alex and I like to guess how much he weighs and we were both quite off this time. At his 2 month appointment Alex was right on. I was thinking he would be somewhere in the 15 pound range so I guessed 15.5 and Alex guessed 16. He was only 14 pounds 11 ounces. I was pretty surprised. So at birth he was in the 90th percentile for weight and then at 2 months he was in the 75th and now he is in the 45th! I was really surprised.
So here are the rest of the stats.

Length 25.5 75th percentile. He grew 1 1/2 inches since his 2 month.
Head Circumference is 16.5 30th percentile
Weight 14.11 45th percentile.

Ok I know I put weight twice but it looks better on the chart thing. :)

I hate shots because they make my little guy so sad!!! He made the saddest face ever when the first one went in. The way he looked at me made me feel awful!!
Can't you just tell how sad he is in this picture. :(

It is sad to see how much Kade has grown up, I can't believe how much he has changed! Yet every new phase is so much fun! Its fun to see him grab things and I love love hearing his sweet little giggle! He always has a smile for everyone. One of the things that I really love about Kade is that I can already tell he is so loving and accepting of everyone. That is one of the things Alex blessed him with and its so sweet to see him like that. Some babies are hesitant around other people but Kade is just so cute to everyone. He plays with everyone. I know he is still young and the clingy phase will still come but I think its cute. I just love that there isn't anyone he doesn't like. Its funny because a lot of babies have certain people that they wont go to but I love how Kade loves everyone. I hope he is always like that!
Anyways, moving on. One more thing that for now we love about Kade is his new little squeal. Those of you who have heard it know exactly what I am talking about. It is LOUD!! He sounds like one of those whistling fireworks. Its pretty cute. In church.... that could be a problem. But we love seeing him excited and seeing his enthusiasm for life.
We started Kade on solids this week. He wasn't sleeping at night as well so we thought it would help to do solids at night and it did. He made the funniest faces! I will put the video up here shortly hopefully! He did pretty well though. We figured out he does best when we put it in a bottle and just cut the nipple really wide. It was bitter sweet giving him solids though because it reaffirmed that he is growing up too much!!
Well that's about all for now. I must keep my ramblings short, Alex says I have been typing for HOURS! I promised pictures, but our very kind and generous neighbor is doctoring our computer with pictures so I will have to postpone again.

Blog slacking

Sorry I haven't posted much lately. I haven't had much to post about actually. My pictures are on our other computer so I'll post them later. Next Thurs Kade goes in for his 4 month appointment so I will post pictures with his stats. Kade has been sleeping 11.5 hours each night now. One night he was just shy of 12 hours. He's such a good boy! He is getting more and more fun with lots of smiles, laughs, squealing and stories! I just love being with him all the time and I miss him when I put him to bed. 11 hours is a long time with out my boy!!
I have 2 quick stories. I know you have all done this but I clipped Kade's finger really good the other night. I new I clipped it but I didn't think it was that bad until I went to check on him and there were blood spots on his blanket and jammies. It just wouldn't stop bleeding so we put super glue on it. Poor kid! I am telling you I felt awful!! I don't understand how people can really abuse their children because I felt terrible giving him a little clip! I was told to use an emery board long ago but I really need to get one now because I am a little too traumatized to clip for a while.

Story #2
Last night Alex and I went to ward temple night. I am ashamed to admit that this is the first time we have gone since Kade has been born. We dropped him off at my parents house and yes, I cried the whole way to the temple! That is a long time, really! I was teary weepy the whole session but I really made an effort to enjoy it. Our bishop and the temple president talked to us before and the President said he see's too many people stop by the celestial room to visit and then rush out. So we made an effort to relax and think in the celestial room. Although I was anxious to see Kade I really enjoyed the session and I learned a lot. I felt really grateful for my little family and for the blessings the temple gives our family. I also thought a lot about how much I hope Kade (and my other children) have a desire to go to the temple.
Anyways it was a great night and I am pretty sure Kade was happy to see us when we got back. Well he was pretty hungry so of course he was happy to see me ha!!
I will post pictures next week. Thanks for listening. :)

Vibram 5 finger shoes, My new kicks!

I have been shopping around for new shoes and the condition of my feet required to make a rash decision in the form of these shoes! I used to run all of the time in high school but my feet would just scream! Anyway research, whatever that means shows that these shoes are supposed to strengthen feet and leg muscles. We'll give them a try, or I will!
