The sweetest lullaby you've ever heard!

Prospective Suitors

Baby CASH invited Tatem to come and UTAH. Tatem decided she wanted to surprise Cash by showing up on his door step. So, my Ricks College roommate, SARAH, drove us to Utah so Tatem could play with CASH...and CAMERON.
CASH and CAMERON happen to be cousins. They both come from amazing families. Their Mommies, NALANI and CARRIE, were my Ricks College roommates as well. If I ever had to give up my family and choose a new one, this one would be it.

All 3 babies are only 6 weeks apart!

Notice Cash working the ol' stretching maneuver, ending up with his arm around Tate. She seems unimpressed so he goes for the nuzzling. He works quick. Ahhh baby love!

At church yesterday, an "experienced" lady in Relief Society asked me, "How can you tell a First Time Mom from a Mother of 5?"

"When the binkie falls to the floor, the First Time Mom will immediately pick it up, boil it for 10 minutes, and make sure it's properly sanitized."

"A Mom of 5 will find it in the toilet, dip it out, wipe it on her pants and call it good!"

Totally true.
I am a First Time Mom!

I'm trying my hardest for the "First Time Mother of the Year 08" award.
* I go to Target at least every other day looking for nothing in particular.
* Instead of using the microwave for 10 seconds, I warm up her bottles in a bowl of water, adding at least a good 7 minutes of extra loud crying to the already frantically hungry, crying baby.
* I only forget the diaper bag when I'm going to be gone from the house for longer than 3 hours.
* I tell the baby's daddy, "you're not doing it right" all the time.
And finally
* I ordered 1 million dollars worth of pictures of her 1 month photo shoot at Sears Portrait...and then went across the mall to Kiddie Kandids and ordered another 1 million dollars worth from them.

Seriously, who needs that many pictures of your 1 month old???
How in the heck does a first time Mom afford the rest of the months pictures?
Daddy scolded Mommy and said, "Tatem is gonna havta wait till she's TWO YEARS OLD for her next photo shoot."

Oh Daddy. Maybe you should try for the "First Time Daddy of the Year 08" award. (See the Mommy for the qualifications)

My Gift(s)

In celebration of my first Mothers Day,
my sweet husband Ian bought me
a very pretty, dainty, ring.
I get to wear it now, but in time,
it will be a gift for Tatem.
Look closely and you can see her holding it.
I told her to stay out of my jewelry box!
The other day I caught her in my make up bag and wearing my high heels!
I've already got to keep an eye on her!

This Year, It's Official

The day after Mothers Day last year, my best friend and self appointed fertility specialist Brittni said, "I am not going to let another Mothers Day go by and watch you celebrate empty handed!" Who knew she was a prophetess...or a witch...or just a good guesser.

Happy Mother's Day to all women,
but especially
to all the NEW MOM'S
celebrating Mother's Day
for the FIRST TIME!
My Ricks College Roommate
and her baby CASH
(with husband JED).
My sister LINDSAY and her baby HANNAH
Wishing Lindsay a very special First Mothers Day.
Since last June, Lindsay has become a mother of two. She was able to hold her baby boy ISSAC for a short time in January. Now he is keeping a good eye on his family from Heavens view.
