Teaching Daddy

So this morning i was teaching Daddy how to talk to Xander and make him smile back at you.. (Travis has been having a hard time knowing how to keep a baby happy- I think he has ages 3+ mastered but struggles with newborns.) Anyways- Xander is super happy the first half of the day, so it wasn't hard for Daddy to have success! Now, the second half of the day is another story.. baby isn't so smiley then.. I dont know why.. but if half a day's what i get, then half a day's what I'll take!!

Airboat Ride & Hangin Out

Spring Break Family Vacation

We just got back from West Palm Beach, FL where my sister lives and wish we were still there! We had so much fun and I've decided that 5 days is not long enough for a vacation- it needs to be atleast a good week! My whole family was there- we came from Michigan, Idaho, Utah, and Vegas, of course. It was so great to have everyone there. While there, we went on an airboat ride and saw lots of alligators and cool birds, went to Disneys Typhoon Lagoon waterpark, and of course hit up the beach! I couldnt' believe how blue and warm teh water was! it was perfect! We only got one beach day which I was super mad about.. I didn't even get any color!! I should have omitted the sunscreen! grr. Oh well.. i was still glad we could go. Thanks mom and dad and Lindsay and Joel for everything! Love you all and miss you already!

Okay- so there were 4 digital cameras snapping tons of pictures so I'm sure I'll post more as they filter in.. but here are some of the pictures I took of Typhoon Lagoon and the Beach:

2 Year Anniversary

Yep, we survived 2 years of marriage! Phew! Tomorrow we leave for a trip to West Palm Beach, FL to visit my sister, Lindsay. My whole family will be there, so I am excited for every one to meet Xander! Speaking of which, what better anniversary gift could I ask for than this....

Xander at 7 weeks started to smile back at us! He smiles quite a bit now! Its so cute! In fact, as I am sitting here, he is laying on the bed and I am on the computer and every once and a while, i will look over at him and smile, and he will smile back! LUV it :) Here is a video of him smiling with a little laugh...

April Fools!

So, my husband decided to play a super cruel April Fool's joke on me today! He had a doctor's appt earlier today and after his appt, he called me and said that the Doctor found a lump/mass in his throat and that there was a 50% chance of it being cancerous!! He told me the doctor scheduled him to have some tests done, but that there was definately some sort of tumor in there. The doctor asked him if there was any history of cancer in his family and Trav told him, "Ya my mom died of a brain tumor."(Which is true.) He told me the doctor said that it tends to run through the mother's side, and makes your chances of getting cancer much higher... ANYWAYS- reality slowly started to hit me and I was just about to start crying when he told me that it was an April Fools!! GRRRR.. I always forget about April Fools and he gets me every time!

What a relief huh?

PS- do you love my super crappy Photo-editing job? Haha! I did that because one thing Travis told me on the phone was, "I dont wanna lose my hair!" Pf! That was the least of MY worries!
