Jack is 6mos Old!

Time Flies when you are having fun! Jack is now 6months old and these days he is sitting up without any help and trying to crawl when he is on his tummy. The knees come up but the front and back don't seem to move together. It's so cute. About two weeks ago he started to sprout his first tooth, and he loves to feel it with his tongue. Jack is experimenting with a variety of vegetables. He LOVES sweet potatoes and likes carrots, peas and apples. Next we will be trying green beans, bananas, pears and squash. I make his food myself! (giving myself a pat on the back) It surprisingly very easy and inexpensive.

JD and I are having so much fun watching Jack grow into such a hansome little man. His personality have really started to show in these past two months. He laughs, plays alot and hardly cries unless he is tired or bored. His favorite thing to do these days is jump in his doorway jumper...when he gets started, there is no stopping our little jumping bean.

39 Weeks!

Well 9 months has finally come and gone. Jack has been growing, kicking and rearranging my belly for 39 weeks now...Im ready for him to make his grand appearance. We (me especially) are getting impatient to see him.

Today I have been having alot for contractions than usual so hopefully things are starting to move along for us. Maybe serving him with an eviction notive did the trick! Three days ago Jack kicked me in the rib so hard I let out a loud scream and nearly lost my breath. I decided to serve him with an eviction notice stating "If you are out of room, its time to move out". Maybe he got the hint.

We Shall See!!

Growing Belly

12 weeks with Jack

24 weeks with Jack

29 weeks with Jack

It's A Boy!

On March 8th, we had our first family sonogram. My mom, brother and JD's parents crowded around to find out the ultimate question...Boy or Girl? There it was plain as day...It's A Boy! We had a little poll going to see what everyone was expecting me to have. I have known since the very beginning it would be a boy. The night before our sonogram I had a very clear dream...Elizabeth was doing our sonogram and announced it was a boy. A mother always knows!

It is now the end of May and I am in my 7th month of pregnancy. (29 weeks) Everything is going great! The doctor says Jack is measuring a little large, but it is expected with boys. I have my days when I have no energy and then there are days when I forget I'm even pregnant because I feel like I can do anything. But, JD makes sure that I never overdo it. He has been such a wonderful support system for me. Making sure I rest, eat when I need to and drink plenty of sodas! :0( I call him my sugar Natzi. About a month ago, I took my glucose blood test and it was slightly elevated so JD was off to the store to change ALL my snacks to sugar joke! Even after I did my repeat testing (which was normal) he still limits my sweets. :0)

Colorado Honeymoon

8/28/2009 - 9/14/2009

We had an amazing time! Each time we visit it gets better and better. We visited Mesa Verde. Where the early indians settled and built their homes on the mountain cliff-sides. It is so facinating to see how they lived and how we have evolved from those days. We visited four corners: Where New Mexico, Utah, Colorado and Arizona all meet. We even got to meet a famous actor. He was featured as an Indian/Mexican extra in movies such as Tin Cup, One life to Live, Blazing Saddles, Three Muskateers and many many more. We spent an entire day on the train from Durango to Silverton. Talk about BREATHTAKING views! (and lots of coal in your teeth) Above all I think my favorite part of the trip was our two day stay at a bed and breakfast just outside of Durango. It was so peacefull and relaxing. They had everything you would need and treated you like royalty. I spent most of my time laying in a hammock in the back yard. During breakfast, the humming birds would fly by, literaly inches from my head. We watched movies at night in our honeymoon suite and enjoyed wine and popcorn for midnight snack. It was just amazing and I really didnt want to leave. We found some of the the best food joints on our trip, thanks to Guy Fieri from Diners Driveins and Dives. Our favorite spot was in New Mexico at Harrys Roadhouse. Try the new mexico blue corn enchiladas...Christmas style. OH MAN! Its to die for!

Honeymoon Bound

Its been over 1month since the wedding! Now my days are filled with JD's loving company and Floyd. (and Kit Kit too) We have patiently been waiting to take our honeymoon, now that JD's summer time work has slowed down. We leave this Friday Aug 28th to Colorado. We initally planned to take a cruise to Alaska however, I have misplaced my birth certificate and its now too late to order a replacment in time to get a passport ordered. So hopefully we can take the cruise for our one year anniversay. We have two weeks to relax and fully take in Colorados beauty. We have a bed and breakfast reserved and a couple days of river rafting and a train ride through the mountains planned. CANT WAIT! I will try my best to keep updated posts as well as pictures. See when we return!

Bridal Shoot

On a windy day in June, J&C Photography met mom and I out at the Las Colinas Mandalay Canals to take some beautiful bridal shots. We had a great time working with Jocelyn and Chris and tackling my killer veil. They make a great team! Here are just a few. Enjoy!

The day has come and gone!

July 4th was the best day of my life! Our wedding ceremony was a little hot but very beautiful! The setup for the reception I hear was a little stressful but EVERYONE did a fabulous job! The cakes looked amazing and the tables and centerpieces were just perfect. The bouquets were everything I imagined they would look and everyone had a blast! The only hiccup we had were the fire alarms going off toward the end of the night, but noone seemed to mind...we are all just a bunch of dancing fools!

My wedding day was everything I dreamt it would be. There were nerves, tears, but most of all excitement! I couldnt wait to see JD in his tux and to tell him that I love him. Surprisingly I was very calm as I walked towards him down the aisle. My eyes were fixed on him and him only. I fell in love with him all over again when he said I looked beautiful as he carressed my hand. Yes I cried as I said my vows but I was so overwhelmed with joy. The day had finally come to say I do! But once I got the first couple words out it was smooth sailing from there.

Our carriage ride after the ceremony was magical. It was a chance for JD and I to talk about the day we each had and to take in being Mr and Mrs Thayer. JD told me he almost passed out when he got down the aisle. He was nervous, excited and dehydrated all at the same time. Thanks to Grandma Fishings water supply he was able to recover. That will be a memory to share over and over again.

The reception was so relaxing. The food was fabulous and the catering staff was very curtious. The DJ played all the right music to get our guests in the dancing mood. They were very organized and professional, but also amazing singers!

Thank you to everyone for coming out on their holiday weekend to celebrate with us! We had a fabulous time and we hope you did too!

When Mom, Jennifer, Ruth and I went to the bridal show back in Jan 2008 Al's formal wear had a wheel to spin and you could receive additional discounts depending on what you landed on. Well in the event of spinning you got to take home one of their teddy bears. When I returned home with a bag full of fliers from all the booths...Floyd to a great liking to the teddy bear. It has now been over a year now since the bridal show and Floyd has made this bear last so much longer than any other of his other babies! I have had to sew up eye holes but the tie stayed on. Hmm! I guess this is way of telling us he loves Al's formal wear!

Looking GQ

JD and George headed out to create the perfect ensemble for the groom and his men. Cortnie and I made sure they didn't show up in tangerine ruffled suits. I have to say JD's gonna be "smoking" on our wedding day! He has a try-on next weekend...and I can't wait!
