Summer Ends 2018- Happy 2 Months Sienna!

Month 2 with our little Sienna has been another month of adventure. Some of the highlights include Sienna receiving her baby blessing from her daddy and her uncles and grandpas assisted. We had a campfire in the mountains and played on a razor. I started working again and am bringing Sienna with me. Sienna started being less fussy because her heart burn medicine combined with gripe water started working more consistently. She smiled for the first time (socially, not a gas smile). My mom weaned us off her help right before I went back to work, but it was so fun having her help and visit so much. Josh and I were able to have a date night each week so we could have some us time and relax.

Life with Sienna (1 Month)

As I’m writing this Sienna will be 3 months old this coming Wednesday. I am a pretty typical mom and have taken so many pictures of Sienna that I wanted to split up the pictures by her age. And wanted to write about life with Sienna these past three months.

This first month as a parent is difficult. BIG UNDERSTATEMENT. Fortunately as Josh and I have adjusted to parenthood, we have had a lot of help from family members who have shown their love and support for Sienna and for us. Josh went back to work pretty quickly after she was born because the summer is the busiest time of the year. My mom came and stayed with us for a little over a month to help me learn how to take care of her and let me recover. She was an angel! Josh’s mom also took some time off work to come help. I’m SO SO grateful for these women in our life!

Sienna has had some stomach issues and has been a pretty fussy girl. We took her to the doctor and after we tried gas drops and probiotics we started acid reflux medication. Poor girl is my daughter (I have acid reflux). The miracle of modern medicine worked and the medicine has really helped her.

At one month old, Sienna really liked to be held and snuggled. She didn’t like baths and sleeping. Here are some of the pictures of Sienna’s first month of life.

Happy 1 Month Sienna Lyn!

 

 

I thought this was a cute picture of Sadie playing with her snoopy doll. Poor girl will never be a Mama but she will be a great big sister to Sienna.Β 
Perfect exhaustion.Β  Need we say more?

Wonder baby!

This is a good depiction of Sienna and her daddy πŸ™‚Β Josh is such a good daddy. I’m so grateful I get to embark on this parenthood adventure with him. We’ve never been so tired, or faced such a challenging endeavor together but we love our Sienna and we like working together to make a happy home.
Time goes so fast.
Tons of different faces! So adorable.

Sienna is daddy’s princess!

 

A Month of May

I’m amazed at how fast time flies. I say a lot as I get older, sometimes the moments are a little slower but looking back it goes so fast. We had a lot of blessings in May, just like every month but here are some of those happy moments.

I’m so happy I get to work with Joshy. We even get to work in the same office. We went to the Cabela’s in Farmington and the Cabela’s in Lehi and were able to show trailers to customers coming in and out of the store. Josh thinks it is funny that I always take a picture of these shows but I like to remember all times with him, even work. He has such a cute face πŸ™‚
I ordered some really cute prints for our baby girls’ room and found frames for them. We’re still in the process of organizing the room but I am super excited to hang these up. Each girl is cartoon drawing of a woman in the scriptures and then a young woman value is associated with each picture. The young women values are Faith, Divine Nature, Individual Worth, Knowledge, Choice and Accountability, Good works, Integrity, and Virtue. I hope our baby girls can be grow up to be a woman who honors these values and strives to implement them daily in her life.
Random picture I know, but I like bragging about my creative husband. He built this chair. There was a broken seat from one of the motorhomes in our shop and he took a apart an office chair and combined the two. It’s amazing what he can build and make.

This is another project Josh was working on, we actually did this one together. It was a sign for our sister-in-law for their new home. We wood burned the word “Home” on a piece of wood with a Harry Potter theme because she loves Harry Potter. I sadly forgot to take a picture of the finished product but we thought it looked cool.
I was playing with a collage app on my phone and decided to make a current family photo. I’m excited when we can take an official one πŸ™‚
During a shopping trip for one of our events at work, I found these at Harmons. On my mission one of my companions and I would buy a couple of these every morning before we headed out for the day at a local almacen (tiny grocery store). They are actually from Spain. I was pretty happy when I found them here and had to take a picture to text my old mission companion. πŸ™‚
These cookies are actually from an event in April. But it was a fun event to plan. We had a brand new model trailer unveiling called the Nest and so I ordered thse cookies so we could serve them to customers who came in that weekend. Dennis couldn’t wait to have one because he loves sugar cookies. πŸ™‚
The honored brand new Airstream model, The Nest.
Josh went back to his Wyoming roots and got his first gun. His smile tells it all, he was like a kid in a candy store. He bought a 1943 rifle and then refurbished the wood stock and added a bayonette. Amazing work!
Crack shot. This gun is huge and the length of the gun is taller than me.
This event is from the Cabela’s in Lehi, the first was the Cabela’s in Farmington.
The Cabela’s in Lehi had a cool metal elk statue and I was trying to be creative with the trailers for our social media πŸ™‚
Since Josh got a gun, we went shooting with his brother and dad. It was a lot of fun. Josh’s gun was the only gun to make baby girl Decker jump though. πŸ™‚
Decker boys with their guns.
I was able to shoot some of the guns and even did pretty good with a rifle (that’s all the name of the gun I know). I was surpirsed being able to shoot being 7 months pregnant πŸ™‚
Josh and I got a firepit in our back yard and had a beginning of summer cook out with hot dogs and smores. I love our little adventures.
Sadie got a little bored at work and decided to jump on my desk at me and say hello. I’m so glad we can take her to work with us.
My sister and friend kept wanting a picture of me pregnant, so I obliged and asked Josh to take one. Each trimester has had its own adventures. I’m glad I’m on the last one. πŸ™‚
