My life...

So today I was thinking about how my life revolves around my sweet baby girl and husband. I don't think it is a bad thing at all. Before I got pregnant I thought to myself that I wasn't going to be the mom that only blogs or talks about her baby. Well I am that mom I love my little girl so much and am just amazed by her. She is learning so much everyday and progressing so quickly. She is a doll and most of the time is so happy. When she is having a freak out about being tired or hungry it usually doesn't last too long and in the midst of her being upset you can usually get her to laugh a little or smile. She is my world right now and I'm not complaining. We have lots of fun together throughout the day and when daddy gets home she is so excited to see him. (Sometimes she can't wait to see him, she is tired of just seeing me) She loves to roll and is getting lots better at sitting on her own. I think once she learns to crawl (which may be soon) she isn't going to stop moving. She will always be on the go and probably get into everything. I like to call her curious George! Jeb absolutely adores her and loves the time he gets to spend with her. I'm grateful I can breastfeed, I really enjoy that bonding time and formula is so pricey. We do feed her a bottle of formula at bedtime so that if we ever need to leave her we can but also the formula helps her stay fuller longer. She has been sleeping through the night since she was 3 months and I love it! We went to Green river and Nephi on Easter weekend and she got off her schedule and didn't sleep very well for about a week. It was rough but she did go right back to bed after she ate so it wasn't too bad. She is now back on her schedule and I can tell she is happier if she gets her full 10 to 11 hour nights rest!!
I do get out of the house. I go visit my parents and my sisters. My neighbors who are my friends will go for walks when it's warm and we have a little play yard in the neighborhood that we will hang out at and watch the kids play. I used to go to bunco once a month but it was a little rough since she breastfeeds and is quite attached to her mommy. Jeb has been feeding her a bottle since she was 3 weeks but she still likes me to be home when she is going to bed. I'm sure there are people that would say I need to just leave more often at night so she gets used to me being gone and such but I figure when she is done breastfeeding it will be a lot easier to let daddy do bed time alone once in a while. Fridays I get to go grocery shopping by myself! I know fun right ;) Friday is daddy's day to hang out with Ahnika without mommy. It is nice to get out alone and not have to worry about hauling her around in the car seat. The car seat is so heavy.
So all in all life is great right now. I love my family and am glad I have them, I am grateful for the trials we've gone through and are facing, even though at the time I really don't like whatever the problem is. It teaches me to be patient and grateful for those around me and what I have.

How was your Mother's Day?

How was your Mother's Day weekend?? What did you do? Did your family spoil you, did you spoil your Mom?? I felt spoiled!! Saturday we went and spent the day at my Mom and Dad's house, all of my siblings and their families came over as well. My oldest sister wasn't able to make it though. The creek that is down by their house was really high, you could hear the rocks being pushed down the creek and the water roaring, it looked like a river. You could hear it from my parent's house which isn't right next door to the creek. Sunday we went to Jeb's parent's house and had dinner and celebrated Mother's day with them. Sunday morning Ahnika let me sleep in until 7:00! Usually she sleeps from around 8pm to 6 or 6:30am so it was nice to sleep in a little bit! After she ate and played with us for a bit she went back to sleep and Jeb got up and made me breakfast!! It was yummy!

It is such an honor to be a mother! I am so grateful for my little girl, she is such a joy in my life! I am so glad that I have been able to stay home with her! I would do anything for her. Before I got pregnant and while I was pregnant I knew I would love my children, I knew it would be fun to be a mommy! But I had no idea how much I would/could love my child. It is crazy how intense you can love someone you've barely met! There were nights when I hardly got any sleep and I felt like I wanted to give up that I couldn't take it anymore and then she would give me one of her cute little smiles and my heart would melt and I knew it would all be okay. I would be able to take a nap the next day and loosing a few hours of sleep every night for a few months wouldn't kill me. I love to sleep so it was difficult, but I did enjoy holding my sweet baby in the middle of the night, she is extra cuddly when she is sleepy. Being a mom and knowing all of the joy and sadness that comes with it makes me really grateful for my mom!! I'm not the perfect daughter that I wish I was, but I have been trying harder to show my mom how much I do appreciate her since I've become a mom. I love my mom tons and hope she knows that and I hope that when Ahnika is an adult she will still love me and appreciate what I do for her. I have wanted be great at many things but out of all of them I really want to be a great Mom. I know I will never be perfect at it and I'm sure I will and already have made mistakes but I hope when I look back at my life, after my babies are all grown up, that I can feel a peace and know that I did a good job!
I hope all of you mother's out in the world had an enjoyable Mother's day!

New Recipe

Last week I tried a few new recipe's and really like them. I got two from Campbell's soup website: go here and the other one from a friends blog: here. We really enjoyed these Quick Barbecued Beef Sandwiches, some of the reviews said to add cheese and they taste like an Arby's sandwich. So next time I make them I'm going to add cheese. I was a little worried about what they were going to taste like but was pleasantly surprised. They were really tasty and really quick and easy to make!!
The other recipe I tried was Penne with Asparagus. The first time I made it I somehow missed an important direction (I didn't cut the asparagus in 1 in. pieces oops) and I didn't have any cherry tomatoes. So I made it this week and made sure to follow the directions and add the tomatoes and It was very good we really liked it. We liked it the first time I made it but it was definitely better the second time around. Oh and I used whole grain pasta. We are trying to eat healthier, which I'm finding is slightly difficult since I have a sweet tooth. One day I will achieve my goal! :) I also made goulash, I haven't had it since I was a kid so I wasn't sure if it tasted the same as I remember it tasting. It was good and very filling. I got the goulash recipe from Campbell's soup and also looked at a few other goulash recipes and kind of combined a few of the recipe ingredients. Anyway I thought I would share these great recipes with all of you who read my blog. If you make them I hope you enjoy! Check out those websites they have great recipes!
