Well it has been ages since I posted anything on here...I don't know why I haven't I guess I just kind of forgot to. SO many new things going on since last time I posted over 6 months ago...holy crap! For starters Huxley is now almost 19 time flies! He is up and running around, feeding himself using utensils, talking more and more, here are some of his favorite words: momma, dadda, Tig, Pepper (our new dog), more, no, banana, cheese, ice, buffalo, bath, ya, wow, fish, hot, cold, Elmo, ball, rock, walk, baba, gargoyle (don't ask :)) and so much more. He is just so much fun! He has 6 upper teeth and still just 2 lower but I think he has a few more coming in right now on the bottom. His favorite foods are mac and cheese, hot dogs, bread, pasta of any kind, bananas, apples, peaches, grapes, cereal, oatmeal, and a few others that randomly come and go. He still pretends to cook with his pots and pans all the time now he actually pretends to eat what he's cooking and will want to share with me and every one else. He is such a joy! I love him more and more each and every day.
 We made it through winter in West Yellowstone, it was exciting, cold, fun. snowy, and crazy to say the least. Jason road snowmachines a lot, I went out a couple times with him. We are now into the height of the summer season and there are tourists every where! The weather is beautiful usually between 70 and 80 degrees during the day and cools off nicely at night. We go to Hebgen Lake on occasion and its' beautiful! WE take the dogs to the river a couple times a day and Huxley loves it!
We got a new dog named Pepper she is 3 yrs old, a yellow lab/ weimaranar cross and just a perfect fit into our family...we love her and so does Tig.
I recently just started a new business opportunity as an Independent Distributor for It Works! Global. We have some amazing products that help with weight loss, skin tightening and toning, skin care, nutrional supplements and so much more. I will post more about all of that in my next post. I am very excited about it and can't wait to share more!
My brother and his soon to be ex wife are obviously getting a divorce and there has been some reall"fun" drama behind all of that. I will indulge more when it's all over! :)
I think that is the last 6 mnths in a nutshell! I will be posting more and giving more info about the It Works products and business opportunity....if you are dying to check out more you can go to my website:
Take care!

a few things I forgot to mention

So after reading some previous blogs of mine and then the most recent, I realized I left out some things. As for me working, I quit my job when Jason got his in West and have since been a stay at home mom which I love love love!!! I am so lucky to enjoy every day with my little man. Also his sleep training created a wonderful sleeping boy, he goes down around 7 or 8pm and wakes up around 6:30 or 7am, it is awesome!!! I would recommend researching the c/o method or something similar b/c for us it really worked and Huxley is happier and more rested b/c of it. He has also cut down to only 2 naps per day the first one is around 10am and he sleeps 1 to 2 hours then his afternoon nap is usually around 3ish and he sleeps another 1 to 2 or 2&1/2 hours. Last but not least he has 2 bottom front teeth that are adorable when he smiles. Well I think that was all I wanted to add. Here are a few pictures of the little man.

it's been a while

     So I know it's been forever, and I mean forever since I have got on and blogged. We have had a lot going on and I haven't made time to get to to it. To do a quick catch up on what has happened the past 6 months or so; In August Jason got a job in West Yellowstone MT at Yellowstone Vacations and therefore we moved here and have really been enjoying it. We miss our friends and families a ton but have been lucky enough to have some come visit and have been able to head back to Poky to visit. Huxley started walking shortly after the move and has been cruising up a storm. He is all over the place and into everything. He is very curious and keeps me on my toes. He is getting such a fun little personality and I love spending my days with him he is so fun. He is eating solids like crazy, still has the bottle for now but hopefully in the next few months I can start weaning him from it. He calls everything momma, his dad, Tig, toys, books,'s pretty cute tho.
     We recently(Nov,. 15) had a tragedy in our little family, our dog, the sweet little girl Akasha passed away. Jason was out running her and she stopped right in front of his truck, he didn't have a chance to stop and hit her. She passed within about 10 or 15 minutes, we had her cremated and plan to spread her ashes her in West as well as Poky. It has been hard but we are able to enjoy our memories of her and feel less pain. She was an amazing dog and companion.
       The Sunday after Thanksgiving we went out about a mile from our house and for the first time cut down our Christmas tree, it was awesome. Huxley loves it,  he always wants to touch it and pull the ornaments off...little stinker! We have made some wonderful friends here in our new home, we feel so lucky to be surrounded by such great people. That is the past 6 months or so in a nut shell. I will try to get on more often and update.

Family Pics June 2011....Huxley is 6 months old

it's been a while...

It has been so long since I have posted a new blog, there are so many things that are going on it's hard to find the time. Well where to begin...Huxley is 6 months old and getting funner and funner by the minute. He is starting solids and sleep training. So far so good. He likes some of his baby food but still not eating a whole bunch yet, he likes the bottle to much, haha!!! As for sleep training Huxley is doing great!!!! We are able to put him down tired but awake and he rolls and talks himself to sleep. He cries a little hear and there but hasn't been to bad so far. He is now sleeping through the night; he goes to bed any where from 7:30 to 9:30ish and sleeps to about 6 or 6:30am. He will sometimes wake up around 4 or 4:30am and cry a little roll around and then fall back to sleep on his own after about 1/2hr to 1hr. He is laughing a lot, rolling a lot, and getting such a silly little personality. We took him to his 6 mo check up with his pediatrician and he is doing great, growing like crazy and has a huge head somewhere in the 85th percentile...haha!!! So I assume he won't be crawling for a little b/c his head is so big...but he sure is cute!!!! I am still working and hating it, I want to be home with my baby to see all the new things he is doing so hopefully Jason will be able to find a job soon so I can stay home....keeping my fingers crossed! I think that covers all the new things going on with us. I hope everyone enjoys a safe and fun 4th of July!!!!

New Pics: April/Easter

Here are some new pics of Huxley, my mother in law and Jason's Aunt Steph got us a picture package from Sears and Huxley did amazing! He is such a cutie!!!!

 Here is Huxley's first Easter. Jason's mom and aunt hooked us up with little Easter baskets and stuffed animals for Huxley and a bunch of candy for us. This is also an outfit Jason't aunt bought for Hux.

Huxley is 4 and 1/2 months! (almost 20 weeks)

    So it's been a while since I have blogged, I have been so busy with work, Huxley and trying to stay up on house work. Jason has been doing well with his knee, he is up and moving around almost like normal. He is still going to physical therapy and still limps a bit, but he is able to do what he needs to take care of the boy while I am work. My mother in law and Jason's aunt have been helping out on Thursdays when Jason goes to physical therapy and I am work so that has been nice. Huxley is getting used to having them here. This last Friday Jason and I went out on our own for the first time since Hux was born; Aunt Steph (Jason's aunt) watched him for us while we went to a friends for a graduation party. It was so nice to get out and see friends but I was nervous about leaving Hux and how he would do. He had a rough night that night b/c things were so different so he didn't sleep well at all. However, the last two nights he has done awesome sleeping 9 and 1/2 hours straight and 8 and 1/2 hours has been so nice!
   As for solids we tried to feed him some but he didn't really seem to enthused once I actually gave him some brown rice cereal, so we have backed off and will try again in a month or so and see what he thinks then. Other exciting news about Huxley; he started rolling over all by himself. He only did it for one day any time I would lay him down he would roll right over to his belly then he would get pissed b/c there wasn't anything he could do. He hasn't rolled from belly to back yet by himself but again this morning he rolled from back to belly. So I am sure within a few weeks he will be rolling all over the place.
   He is also getting so much attitude, it's so cute. He will get upset and start kicking his right leg and then last night he grunted so angry and with so much attitude it made us laugh. He is just getting more and more fun every day.  I hope Jason can find a job within the next couple months so I can either cut down to part time or quit so I will be able to stay home with Huxley more. Well that is what's going on with us right now. My one question for all you parents out there is: how did you transition your baby from a bassinet next to your bed to a crib in their own bedroom and how did it go?  We will be moving Huxley to his own room and a crib within the next month or two and I am a little worried about how he is going to transition. So tell me your stories and how you and your baby did it. Thanks guys!!!!
