2 MoNtHs?!?!

Seriously WHERE DID TIME GO?? My baby is 2 months?! I seriously cannot belive it. She had her 2 month Dr. apt today and here are her stats: Weight 10.8(40%), Heighth 22.75!!(60%), and her head 38.5(50%). Basically she is our little string bean:-) She also got her shots that was SO sad!! I think her Daddy will go to the next apt when more shots are needed!! I can't believe how much fun the last 2 months have been!! I just love her so much!! It's amazing the love you have for someone you've only known for 2 months! I go back to work tomorrow and I have so many mixed feelings. I love the people I work for/with so that helps make it easier, she will be in the best hands while I am at work...but I don't want to leave her!! If I could win the lottery now it would be fantastic:-D Anyways, here are things about my My during her 2nd month:

* She will watch cartoons for about 20 minutes and be totally into it

*She loves her swing

*She loves her Nana and Papa

*She is really smiling now

*She is starting to make baby talk.....which I LOVE

*She will sit in her bouncer while I am getting ready, making dinner etc. and just watch and smile
*She is so close to sitting up, she'd prefer to be in the sitting position instead of makes me sad but she feels she needs to grow up fast I guess

*Her daddy gets the biggest smiles out of her.....she might be a daddys girl:-D

She is basically just the cutest little girl I know:-D I'm bias I know. Little Miss Maiyah we love you so much and are so blessed and happy that we get to have you forever!! Love ya string bean!

Time Flies When Your Havin Fun

WOW! I have not posted since February 5 I am sure my small club of blog followers are just so upset about this :-P! Time has gone by to quickly and we are having so much fun spending time with our sweet little girl!! Our little Maiyah will be 2 months old on the 28th of this month and she is growing like crazy!! I can't even believe how fast time goes! They say to love every minute of it because it goes by fast and they are NOT kidding! I look at pictures of when we first brought her home and it is crazy how much she has changed! Here are a few fun things about her:

*She smiles and giggles SO much in her sleep! She will giggle so loud she will wake herself up. But while she is awake we've only captured a handful of smiles....I can't wait until they start happening more!!
*She loves loves to ride in the car
*She is a BiNkY BaBy and is constantly sucking on that thing!
*She is basically sleeping through the night!!
*All she needs if she wakes up in the night is to feel her mommy or daddys hand on her belly and she goes right back to sleep
*She has the strongest neck and can sit for a long time holding her neck up all by herself.
*She has the longest fingers and the longest toes! We call them her MoNkEy ToEs
*She loves her baths! I think she would stay in the water all day if she could
*She loves to sleep on her daddys chest
*When she sleeps she almost always has her hands up by her chin in a folded prayer looking position
*She is the biggest wiggle worm, ecspecially during the night
*She is so sweet and we just love her so much!! She is also very loved by her Nana and Papa and all her Uncles! I think the longest she has gone without one of them coming to visit her is....2 days:-D We love all the visits! She is also so very loved by her "Vegas Family" she was loved on by her Grandma and Aunts when they came down to meet her and come to her blessing! she is just one loved girl!
Here are a few pics of her 1st month:
On March 7 we blessed our sweet little angel, it was such a great day! We had so many friends and family come out to show their support and love. We are so blessed with such amazing people in our lives!

And here is Maiyah today:-D Oh how I just love that sweet little face!!

LoVe at FiRsT SiGhT!!

On January 28, 2010 our lives were forever changed. Our little angel was born at 2:51pm weighing in at a healthy 7.1lbs and 20 inches. She is perfect and we love her more than words can express.
Labor/Delivery were much easier than I had anticipated! I had worked myself up to this horrible thing. And really it was not bad....of course that was AFTER the epidural. My sweet Dr. offered to start me and I quickly took her up on her offer..A. I was SO excited to meet this little bean that had been in me for 9 months B. I was in pain because she was so LOW and C. I was already dilated to a 4.5! So we went in Thursday morning at 8:00am. We got all settled in and at 10:30 my Dr. came in and broke my water. When I was dilated to a 6 I was ready for the epidural. I will say for me that was the WORST PART. It was great that the contractions were gone but to me it was painful, but worth it:-D Then at 2:00pm I was checked and dilated to a 10 and ready to push! To hear that was crazy! Because I knew we were SO close to seeing our sweet little girl. Finally at 2:51 our sweet little Maiyah Serenity Groft was here!! She was perfect and healthy and we couldn't have asked for a sweeter little girl.
I can't believe it has already been a week! She changes everyday, and she does not look like the little peanut we brought home from the hospital. She is so much fun even when we have sleepless nights and fussy times:-D She is constantly being spoiled by her nana and papa who love to pay her a visit everyday. Her uncles love her and the Groft side of the family cannot wait to meet her. She is one lucky girl to have such an amazing family!!
As for her, she has him wrapped around his finger already! She is going to be one spoiled little girl! I can't believe the love I felt for him when I saw him hold her for the first time! He is such an amazing man and was amazing through the whole delivery! I could not have asked for a better husband.
Here are a few pictures of our little princess! Thanks to all our friends and family for all their love and support throughout this first week! We love you all!!

He was so amazing through the whole process!!!!!

Meeting our princess for the first time!

The Support Crew:-D Daddy, Nana and Papa

This is where she got daddy wrapped around her little finger!!

Meeting her papa!!

Meeting Nana for the first time!!

And here she is week old!! Oh how we just love her so much!!!

PrEgO bElLy PiCs

Well here they are, my maternity pictures! I am so happy with the way they turned out. It was really weird to have my big ol' belly exposed but my photographer, Miss Ali Lundell, did a great job! They will be fun picctures to look back on to see when our sweet little baby girl was still baking in the oven! I can't believe how close we are getting to having her here! It seems like just yesterday we were telling friends and family we were expecting! now we are basically a month away, CRAZY! I have enjoyed pregnancy for the most part, my back has been causing me major problems but when I feel her moving around it makes all the pain worthwhile. I can't believe that God has given us this amazing blessing to be able to raise a child. We truly feel blessed and priveleged. We are both so excited and are just counting down the days until our special delivery gets here.

WOWOWW!! It has been awhile! Seriously life is just flying right on by! Here is a long update, feel free to read if you would like. Well I will just start where I left off last blog post! That was a long time ago so here it goes!

HaLlOwEeN: Here are some randoms of Halloween, my mom always has dinner and games at her house on Halloween. It's really fun because I just love being with my family and having a good time. We missed Quinten and Mackenzie!! They decided to go to a "friends" Halloween party. But here are a few pics of carving pumpkins and hanging with the family!

BaBy ShoWeR: On November 19 I had a baby shower thrown for me! It was so nice and I got so many great things and super cute little girl stuff. I have such great friends that are so supportive and I am so thankful to everyone that was there! We seriously have been so blessed when it comes to help for this little one! We had a crib and glider gifted to us by our great friends, my 2nd mother gifted me an adorable crib bedding set and so many others have just given us things! The only main item we have had to buy ourselves was a changing table. Seriously we are so blessed....just thinking about it brings me to tears. So thank you all that came to my shower and suppported me and the start of my little family and to all of those that have gone above and beyond to make this pregnancy not stressful with worrying about how to buy things! You are all so amazing!!
My mom did such a great job throwing the baby shower! She was so sweet of her to do that for me and I am very thankful to her and Ali and Lindsey for helping with food!! And for my dad helping my mom out because she works a lot! He was super helpful!! Again SO BLESSED!!!
Here are some pictures of my shower! We ate food, played what is in the diaper game:-D and opened gifts!

NeW mOoN pReMiErE: Angie and I went to the Midnight premiere of NeW mOoN yes I am in love with the books and the movies! New Moon was aweseome and way better than Twilight! But seriously the ending was not my favorite! Now just like with the books, I have to countdown the days until the 3rd one comes out! And I will plan on going to the premiere of that one to!!

While we were at the theater they had a best costume contest...well no one really had costumes on and since me and Angie were matching twinner shirts that said Bite Me....Please. We decided to go up and say we were Ang was Bella before the honeymoon and I was Bella AFTER the honeymoon:-D I am pretty sure the belly won that constest for us! We won a bag with Jacob on the front of it. We had a lot of fun! I just love Angie and she is so much fun to do things with! Ang, mark your calendar for #3!! :-D

ThAnKsGiViNg: Every year for Thanksgiving we spend it with the Groft side in Junction Utah, well this year I forgot to pick up my dang camera! So the only pictures are the ones below, we went on a little drive headed up to Bryce Canyon and stopped and took some pictures. We had a great time with his family! It is always fun to get together with them because we don't get to see them as often as we would both like to. One of my favorite parts when we go there is we get to go up on the mountain and cut down our own Christmas tree! I love real christmas trees and the smell of a fresh one from off the mountain is AmAzInG!

My BiRtHdAy: 24 years old! WOWOWOW! My hubby is seriously the best birthday planner! My morning started out by my alarm going off to wake me up for work but something was different. The sound of the alarm was not my normal tune so when I leaned over to figure out what was going on there was a NEW IPHONE!! I was so excited! (by the way it is seriously the best phone in the world and I don't know how I have lived without it!:-D) So I go to work and around 11:00 I had a special delivery....a fruit flower bouquet delivered! It looked so cute I didn't want to eat it but as soon as I took a bite I knew it would be devoured! I left work early that day because we had a baby apt(update below) and after the baby apt he took me to a suprise place for dinner. Well turns out the suprise place was my ALL TIME favorite restaurant..Tepanyaki! As we walk in the door I see my whole family sitting there! AHH! He had arranged dinner with my entire family at Tepanyaki. Then for dessert...another one of my favorite a COLSTONE icecream cake!!I love him! I was spoiled beyond spoiled on my birthday by my hubby, family and friends. It was a great birthday!

BaBy MaIyAh UpDaTe: Seriously pregnancy is VERY interesting the changes your body makes and the movements your child makes in your belly! It is so crazy! I am now 33 weeks! I can't even believe it! Everything looks great with the little one and they predict her weight right now is 4lbs. So cute! She is growing great, heartbeat perfect and she is head down!! Lets just hope she stays that way! I really cannot believe how fast time is going. I am getting so NERVOUS! Don't get me wrong I am VERY EXCITED but wow the thought of having my own child.....kinda crazy!I don't think the realness of it all will hit until she is laying in my arms. I am due January 30, 2010 and am wanting December to slow down so I can get everything in order!! Her daddy is so excited for her to get here! It is so fun watching him talk to her(through the belly) and how she responds to his voice! He is going to be a great daddy and she is super lucky to get him! But that's the update...all is good!

FuRrY cHiLd: Haha ok so I am not going to write much just but LOOK AT THAT FACE hers not mine! She has been my baby thus far and I am very interested to see how she will react to a baby in the home taking all of momma's attention. She is so cute and I just love her....yes I am a crazy dog owner that loves their dog as much as a person! Her update....well she is as dog and she is doing great!

MaTeRnItY pIcTuReS: My friend Ali as a birthday birthday present told me she wanted to take Maternity pictures for me! AHHH though I was a little scared to show off my belly I am happy to say she did an amazing job and I can't wait to have them back! Here is just a peek of one that she did! I willl post more when I get them back! Thanks Ali! Seriously you are so talented and I am so grateful for your friendship!
