Happy Memorial Day

So we are back from California and here are the stats. Dotty is 16lbs 3 oz (which is 95% for weight) and 27 in. (which is off the charts for height). So my baby is fat but she is also just really really big. She got her second round of shots and of course it was heartbreaking. Dotty was having so much fun on the little bed since the paper sheets sounded so cool when she kicked and then the nurse jabbed her and she just looked at me like "what? I was being so could you!" Well she got over it with a little tylenol. I'm still giving her tylenol every once and awhile since her bruises are so big! I made a terrible mistake putting her in really cute bloomers that cut right on her bruises. She was screaming before I realized what I had done.

Anyway today is memorial day and so I decided to write about my favorite memories. This will help me keep my mind off my new job that starts tomorrow...

1. December 13th 2003- The night Cory proposed.
He had planned a great date up in salt lake. We were to do a session at the salt lake temple, go out for dinner and look at the lights on temple square. On the way up I said, "you know what I realized when I was getting ready...this is like the perfect night for you to proposed! with the temple and dinner...its so romantic" I had no idea that that was part of the plan...I'm such an idiot. The temple was great, dinner was fabulous salmon and then we took pictures all over temple square. On the way back to the car cory wanted to walk up to this cool house and take pictures there but I was cold. I said i'd wait in the car but he wouldn't have it. So he took my picture with salt lake in the background and when I turned around he had a ring ( I thought he must have gone somewhere to get it during the night on account of what I had said) I said yes and we drove home and cory felt sick so we pulled over. we called his family and his dad asked if I knew how to spell their name.

2. May 1-6 2004- Our first week as marrieds-
We didn't go on a honeymoon because we just wanted to get our house in order. We painted and made some desks and just hung out. It felt weird to be married, like we were trying not to bug the other person because we were married and we didn't want the other person to regret being married. We were lying in bed one night and I don't remember who said it first but someone just said, "this is weird" We ended up talking for a long time with our feet touching and feeling so much better about being married and sharing a life together. It was my favorite night

3. April 2006- when I found out dotty was coming-
Cory was in Hawaii and I wasn't feeling so good. pms that wouldn't stop. I took a pregnancy test and it was really positive. I didn't know what to do. I wanted to wait and tell Cory in person when I went out to hawaii for our anniversary. I sat on the bed and just wondered alone what I was going to do. At that moment I remember thinking- I should be scared and lonely but I just felt so neat...really calm and excited. I ended up telling cory over the phone two weeks later because I couldn't stand it.

So, were you able to spell the name right?

I have a "sturdy" girl too (off the charts) and one "delicate" girl who is barely on's weird how genetics work!
