Happy Birthday Jake!

For Jake's Birthday we dropped Addi off at my mom's and went to Cafe Rio for lunch and then went and saw The Goods... it was lame, but Jake liked it. After that Jake had class (lame), but luckily it got out two hours early, so we went and picked out an ice cream cake and then headed home.

Now here is the mushy stuff.... you can skip this part

Let me just say that I am pretty sure I married the SWEETEST, FUNNIEST, SMARTEST, most ADORABLEST man alive! Jake would do anything for anyone. He is my Heaven on Earth!
Jake is going to school full time and working full time just so he can provide for our little family... he works so hard so that I am able to stay at home with Addi and to me that is a blessing.
Jake is my best friend and I think is an amazing husband and dad!
I am so lucky to have him in my life!

Happy Birthday You sexy piece of... ACE! 24 is old ;)

My baby is 6 Months!

Ah! When did this happen!? She is getting so big now.... Addi is our iddy biddy. We took her into her 6 month check up and she weighs 15.5 pounds, 27 in long. Our little baby girl is long and lean like her mom (Drs words not mine). Addi loves her daddy... whenever he is in the room she just smiles and talks to him nonstop and when he leaves the room she looks for him and waits quietly. She also loves the mirror and her cousins or any little person for that matter. Sometimes I think Addi thinks she is a big person and these "little kids" are funny to watch.
Addi already has quite the personality! Everyone thinks she is going to be a little comedian.

Addi still is the perfect baby. She sleeps through the night, loves people (social like her daddy) and only gets fussy when she is tired or hungry (kinda like me) ;)

Things she does now:
Screams (excitement not tantrums)
laughs and smiles all the time
Pulls the blanket over her face to play pickaboo
laughs, talks, and has said DaDa.....
Rolls everywhere!
Can stand while holding onto things
Eats cerael and anything else that she can get in her mouth
Almost can sit up, just waiting on that

I feel so lucky and blessed to have such a wonderful, adorable healthy and happy baby girl!

My tiny baby girl just 1 day old!
And now look at her!!!! Growing up sooo fast!
This dress is from her GREAT Grandma Carol... I love her & miss her!

She loves this Giraffe.. She cuddles all the time

Jakes paid time off!!!

Jake had the whole week off from July 6 Monday- July 14th cause he had too much PTO at work and he was told to take a week off. So we decided to do some fun and cheap things around here. Let me just say how much I wish he never had to work! I love having him around! He happens to be (along with Addi) my most favoritest person in the whole entire world! He lights up my life ha ha.

So we started our little staycation off with a walk around Layton park! I happen to think it's one pretty park and the ducks are fun to watch. I love when its spring and there is a ton of little baby ducks, they are cute.

Then on Tuesday we went to Surf N Swim with my mom and little sisters plus my brother Nick and his wife came and my sister Sharee and her two kids. It was fun! Addison seems to like the water if only her legs are in it, just like her mom ;). Jake loved being in the pool.
On Wednesday we went spent the day cleaning and organizing the house and just had a relaxing day. Sometimes its nice getting Addi and bringing her in our bed in the morning and just the three of us chilling in there.

Then on Thurday we went on a hike up Taylors Canyon. Holy CRAP I am out of shape! I was dying! I wanted to turn around after five minutes! But Jake wouldn't let me... plus I couldn't be the one to give up, the only thing I was carrying was our water. Jake just kept going and he even was carrying Addi on his back. Such a show off! Jk ;) he kept encouraging me and telling me I was doing so good... with the sun beating down on me and the burn in my legs I wanted to give up, but seeing Jake carrying our chub of a daughter up that hill without even slowing down I knew I had to keep going.

We then went on another hike with my family a couple days later and it was only suppose to be a 1 1/2 mile hike but it was a 3 1/2 miles long just one way! Not to mention straight up inclines! It was so worth it in the end cause the view was amazing!

We also have been bringing our dog Maverick on hikes with us and I wasn't sure how he would do since he is a little stub of a dog but he did awesome! He didn't even need his leash... just followed us the whole time! I was so proud! Ha

We also got to go to Lagoon twice for super cheap thanks to my little sister!
It was soooo freaking hot! I got to go on a couple rides with Jake the first time, but the second time around I only went on one with him and we brought his nephew to be his riding buddy since I had Addi. I just hung out with my sister and her little kids in kiddy land.
Addi got to ride on the train and she loved it! We also took her on the haunted house there and I was probably more scared than she was and I know it is a lame haunted house but I was afraid for Addi :)

On a side note so when we were standing in line for our tickets my sister Sharee had both of her kids with her and only one stroller so I told her I would hold Brooklyn for her while she stood in line, so Jake had Addi who was in her stroller standing in line with my sister while I hung out with brooklyn the shade, so I watching them and I notice this lady behind Jake putting her hands all over Addi!!!! She was rubbing her face, arms, and legs.... I was sitting there... horrified! Thinking what the eff! Why isn't Jake stopping her. This went on for about five minutes just dying. Well finally I go and get her cause at this point she is screaming! I was too (inside)!
Well Jake finally comes over and I was like why in the world were you letting that lady rub her hands all over our baby?!
Jake was like she was blind, so what was I suppose to say to her.
Okay so I am sorry if this will offend you, but I don't care what is wrong with you! Ya don't touch someones baby! let alone their FACE!!! I basically bathed her in hand sanitizer.
Stuff like that makes me so mad! I mean come on... REALLY? :)

So needless to say we had lots of fun with Jakes time off and we miss him being around all day

The 4th

The 4th was pretty fun! We woke up early and headed to my sister Sharee's house for a big breakfast with my parents, two younger sisters and my two older sisters plus their little families.
It was a very delightful and fatty breakfast! After breakfast Jake had to head into work... Lame huh?! After he left everyone else headed to the Layton parade. It was pretty fun. When the city council men drove past in their convertible my dad was like watch this Alicia and shouted "lower our taxes! Lower our taxes!" It was funny, the guy just turned and gave him a thumbs up. My dad is awesome!

When the parade was over we were pretty pooped and just relaxed then headed over to my parents house. We got Pizza and stuff to make ice cream sundaes. YUM! By that point Jake was off of work and came to join us to watch fireworks on my parents deck. They have a view of
basically all of Davis county and North Salt lake. It was perfect cause we saw Layton, Clearfields, Lagoons and many others fireworks. Addison was so fasinated by the fireworks! It was a fabulous 4th!

Our little family!

Brooklyn, Addison, and Savanna.
Funny thing about those flags that they handed out at the parade is they said made in China.
What the eff?

2 years ago today....

2 years ago today was me and Jake's first date! I know I didn't blog about our one year wedding Anniversary (way more important than our first date) but that's cause I am lazy, so i figured I would blog about our first date.
Jake and I had known each other for a couple months as just friends.... One day we started texting and discussed that we should hang out again since it had been awhile. So we decided to make it a simple/casual date and see how it goes. Well we went to Wendy's for frostys and to a park in Ogden to play Frisbee ha ha so fancy I know! Right before we got back to his truck he stopped me and pulled this line "every second we go without kissing a puppy dies!"
(you have to know Jake to know he was just being funny), so I was thinking what the FU?! I had to kiss him for the puppies right??? :)
After we were done at the park we headed back to his apartment to watch some movie.... I ended up having a really fun time with him on our casual and thought I would keep him around for while and see what happens. Jake and I were talking about our first date this morning and he said who would of thought! Here we are married and we have beautiful baby girl. Its so crazy thinking about the first time I met Jake to now. Things couldn't be better! I love his stinkin guts and feel grateful we end up with each other! I am a lucky girl that has such a wonderful husband!

Here are some pictures from our dating days... I miss my long hair :(

Yet another long waited update

MAN! I am bad at this blogging thing! Well I will try to update whats been going on this past month in our most exciting lives.

On May 3rd. Addison was blessed, Jake was so nervous but he did a great job! We had our family and friends over afterwards and everything turned out just splendid.

The next day Jake, Addi, and I went on our first family trip! Not a far one, just to the lovely St George. My Grandparents are down there and they have all the works! An awesome view of the Kolob canyons right from their back deck! An indoor pool and hot tub! And a quick drive to Zions or St George. Plus its a free place to stay with all the fixings of a hotel... Doesn't get any better than that.
So while we were there we took a hike in Zions, Addi was pretty tired going up those hills. Then we went to the St George Temple! Beautiful! Of course we made a stop at IN N OUT and played at nicely shaded park.

A week later my brother Randy and his wife Cassi came to visit from New Hampshire! It was so fun to see them and have them meet the new babies since they have been gone.
We had a BBQ at my other brothers house and took a long over-due picture of all of us Guthrie kids together again! We have missed them lots! I'm glad they could come back and visit.

Jake and I have been trying to go out on dates. On May 21st Jake took me to see Dane Cook! AH! He was so freaking funny. We had awesome seats, 7th row from the stage. He was practically spitting on us! My wonderful mom and little sister Elizabeth watched Addison for us. It wasn't the first time she has been babysat but it was the longest! It was so hard. I kept watching my phone to make sure she was alright. My mom got her to sleep right at her bedtime! So we brought her home and put her right to bed! That was super nice!

Speaking of bedtime Addi does so good with sleeping through the night! This happened when she was about 2 1/2 months. I love it! She sleeps all night in her crib. I know it was while ago, but I just wanted to brag about her... just a little :)

She also has started laughing!!! I was so excited when I first heard that wonderful sound!
I was able to capture it on video a couple times and if I am able to figure out how to post it from the video camera I will cause it is the greatest noise on earth. I am pretty sure everyone will agree.

Addi went on her first Zoo adventure! Of course she had no idea what was going on, she was more into her shadow than the animals. We met up with my sister Jessica, and her husband Jesse, and their two kids Streator and baby savanna. It was good seeing them and Streator was so fun to watch since he is at that age where he gets excited to see the animals.
That same week we went to a Bees game. I love spending the day with Addi and Jake. Addi was good and loved watching the little kids around us play.
June 5th was my little sister Katie's birthday! She turned 12! Katie happens to be the baby of the family. I remember when she was born and I wanted to bring her to show and tell at school ha ha. I can't believe she is growing up. I remember teaching her to say shake your booty b****. Yikes! I got in a lot of trouble.

On Monday we were able to go Lagoon for employee family days. My little sister Elizabeth works there, so the whole Guthrie clan (well my mom, Katie, Jared, and Elizabeth) went with us to Lagoon and it was a blast. I didn't realize how hard it was to find a spot to feed your baby in private! We went to the back of the park and sat between a fence and bush. LAME!
Other than that it was a good time and I was grateful for the help I got with Addi so I was able to enjoy the rides like everyone else.

Well there you have it! It's been nice having Jake out of school for the summer cause we get to go on all these fun family adventures! He did really great this last semester of school and is working really hard at work! I am so grateful for him and all that he does for our little family, because of him I am able to stay at home with Addi. He is a great husband and an amazing daddy to Addison. I love him and feel so lucky I get to be his wife!

2 months old and growing

Addi had her 2month appointment.  Jake and I couldn't even watch them give her all those shots!!! We looked away, we are such babies.  Addi is now a whopping 11 pounds and 22 inchesn which is right on track the Dr said.  Here are some things she is up to now.

Swimming! She wasn't so sure about it at first. 
It now puts her right to sleep
she is starting to look like a little girl instead of looking like a baby.
She can now TALK! Well not so much... she is kind of starting to make the baby noises.  I love it cause when we get her to really smile she does a little giggle.  It kills me everytime! 
Shes now able to wear JEANS!!! YAY! 
She is really into sucking her fist, which I don't mind at all cause it puts her to sleep.

She is now smiling!!!! Oh my favorite thing to watch by far! This picture is just funny cause she has the double chin thing going.  MY! She sure is cute! I don't know how we did it, but Jake and I sure make an adorable baby.
