Graduation & A lil' update!!

AHHH, it seriously has been forever!! Today was an amazing day. I can FINALLY say that I am part of Utah Valley University ALUMNI. That is right, today I FINALLY Graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Science with a major in Elementary Education. It feels so amazing, and I am so proud of my accomplishment!!!

My little family is doing amazing. Dustin is working as a lineman Electrician and is loving it!! Kaysten is SIX MONTHS OLD in TWO days!! Where did the time go?!?!

Some things he is doing:
Talks and jabbers all the time. It is so cute he says HIIIII and Get CHU- (well it sounds like that)
I will make a pouty face, and he will make one right back and start crying, SAD but SOOO CUTE!
He can roll over like CRAZY!!
He is starting to scoot around!!
He loves his dad so much, and it is SOOO CUTE!!! :)
He loves to hit things to make noises!!
He loves his bouncer!!

Here are some pictures of today, and of our little guy playing!! I couldn't have earned my degree without the love and support from my family and Dustin's family!! Everyone has helped so much, especially Watching Kaysten when I have been doing homework and been at school. I am so glad they helped me out and I stuck with it!! THANKS GUYS-- LOVE YOU ALL!!! :)

Life has been soo good!!

Last week Kaysten had to get surgery on his stomach, because he had Pyloric Stenosis. He gave us a good scare. I took him into the hospital Monday- not having any idea what was wrong with him. All I knew was we had tried multiple formulas, and he wasn't able to keep down anything that the poor little guy would eat. The doctor sent us up to Utah Valley Monday night to get surgery on him. When we got there Kaysten had progressively gotten worse and worse. He was so dehydrated that he started to get really weak and unconscious. The nurses had such a hard time getting an IV in him- but after NINE pokes (three in the head) they finally got an IV in his arm. I was a NERVOUS wreck by time this happened. The surgery happened the next morning, and by this time Kaysten was SOOO HUNGRY! He couldn't eat before his surgery and he couldn't eat for three hours after his surgery. We could only start him out on a 1/2 ounce twice, then 1 ounce twice, 1 1/2 ounces twice, and then 2 ounces twice-- with three hours in between each feeding. It was SO HARD doing this because he would just CRY and CRY!! He is doing so much better now and we are very thankful for this! He is like having a new baby around- he smiles and talks so much more!

As for me and Dustin nothing has really changed. I just finished my third semester in the education program, and I will graduate in April. Dustin is working as a lineman electrician and loving it!

We had a great Christmas- even though Kaysten had no idea what was going on. He still smiled when we showed him the presents!! Dustin and I got spoiled this year lol!!! I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas as well!!!!

Kaysten Feels so much better :) This is him sleeping after surgery- and this is the incisions they made on his stomach. They stuck a camera through his belly button. It was so sad-- SO glad he is feeling better!

Monday, November 14, 2011


Well it is November, of course the month to be thankful! I thought I would do a quick post about what I am thankful for.

I am so thankful for my amazing little family. I am thankful that we were blessed with such a handsome little (BIG) healthy boy. He is the most amazing thing ever.

I am SO thankful for my amazing husband. I seriously love him so much, and I do not know what I would do without him. He works so hard to provide for our little family. We miss him during the weeks, but love when we get to spend lots of time with him on the weekends!! I love you DUSTIN!!

I am so thankful for both of our families. We have so much help with our little man and I am so thankful for that!!!

These are just a few things :)

Maybe this is the question you have all been asking yourself!?! I kind of went away for a bit when things got busy!! It was crazy planning a wedding, moving, trying to finish school, and then be married!! Life sure has been crazy but it is exciting-- and I sure love it! I need to get photos up from the wedding, but I am having to use my mom's computer because we do not have the internet yet. I will post pictures from the wedding as soon as I have my disc over here!

Dustin and I tied the knot May 14, and it was the best day ever!! Everything went smoothly, and I couldn't have married a better guy!!! Married life is amazing!!! It is so fun having your best friend there with you all the time!!

This weekend the hunts started so let's hope Dustin and his brothers kill some good bucks!!!

I start school on the 29th- it is my last semester of classes, then Spring semester I will student teach AND GRADUATE in April!! I cannot wait to be done and finally start my career as an elementary school teacher. Dustin is still waiting for the union to call him out to be a lineman electrician. He is so excited, and I am excited for him! It will be awesome for him to do something he loves!!! -- It will just be sad when he has to travel a ton!!!

This summer we were just busy hanging out with each of our families. It was so nice to get a break from school and just focus on being newlyweds :) I am not ready to go back to school yet but then deep down I am, because the sooner I start the quicker I can be DONE!!!!

I am sure the ones that know have been waiting for a post about our baby boy.... Yes, that is right we are expecting a little one-- Dustin will have a little hunting buddy :) He is due October 21st, and he is doing super good right now! He is moving a ton, and the doctor says he is healthy. This next week coming up I will be 32 weeks! It has flown by but I can't wait to meet our little man!! :)

Anyways, I will post pictures soon I hope!!!
