Last week we went to Bullhead where I worked for the first time in a long time. Just a few hours for my mom. Emma hung out with her Aunt Amber, Uncle Steve and Aunt Katie and cousins for those hours. It was the worst thing ever leaving her, but it was nice she was in such capable hands. Here is a picture of all the cousins that we took for their grandad.
Also, today we had Emma's 2 month well check. She was so mad when I undressed her because she was so cold, but calmed down after I fed her. She had her shots, which I was scared about. I had given her tylenol before we went to the doctor and although her screams were really sad, she calmed down and fell asleep before we left the office. She is still sleeping. Wow, those must have worn her out. She is 11lb 3 ounces - 57%, 23.5 inches 87%, and her head is 56%. Her feet are still tiny. Here is a picture of her wearing shoes, but we had to take them off because they kept falling off her feet.
All in all though I think I am getting the hang of this parenting thing. Emma slept for 7 hours last night, then went back to sleep for about 2. Yay. We had to get her a new humidifier after I accidentally dropped hers while I was filling it and the hard plastic shattered and spilled water all over the carpet. Thank goodness for my tiny carpet cleaning machine that sucked up the water. Now I just can't wait to go see twilight this week! Emma's Daddy is going to watch her so I can go.

Life is Crazy!
I seriously feel like life could not get any crazier, but I am sure those more experienced moms will tell me that this is just the beginning. We went to the home auction this weekend. It was very educational, but also very long for our family. We were so close to getting the house we wanted, the guy was saying going once, twice and then an investor outbid us. I mean seriously do they really need more houses? We just wanted one little one for our family. Then it came up for reauction because apparently the investors did not want the house....and we got outbid by a different investor, but I think the auction people made a mistake because they came over to us and tried to talk us into putting in a back up offer for the amount it sold for after they told us that they had us at the highest amount. We were able to end up putting in an offer we felt more comfortable with after the auction just in case the investors don't want it and we will be contacted in 7-10 days. Keep your fingers crossed for us. Here is a picture of Emma and Daddy afterwards...they were so tired.
Halloween in AZ
This is the first picture I could find of us. Really it is Christmas now. Rod and I had fun planning this Halloween party. I even thought it would be a good time to make costumes ( I will think more about that next time).
Europe up till now
We spent a month this summer in Europe and it was so fun!! Then we packed up and moved from Bullhead City to Tempe, AZ. Roderick is enjoying his time finishing his Economics degree at ASU ( although finals stink). I am being a dental hygienist in Scottsdale, which is very fun! I love the people I work with and it keeps me busy. We are getting ready to head up to Utah next week for our Christmas break and can't wait. This blogging stuff is fun!
