I now understand why other parents say 'they grow up so fast.' IT'S TRUE!! And ridiculous! A month?! REALLY? He was just inside me 2 seconds ago! Sheesh.
So this Christmas season we'd like you to remember Christ...

It's hard to give you a variety of pictures though because every face he makes is almost the same...he's not doing much yet! But he's definitely precious...
Lately he's been starting to make little noises and he's been trying to hold his head up. He's also started kicking a ton and almost wants to start trying to put his weight on his legs...
P.S. Noelle took some newborn pictures of Wyatt and has a few edited and up on her photography blog...check it out!! He's so cute! Go here: http://noellelaraphotography.blogspot.com/

My family! New grandparents and aunts! The uncles unfortunately weren't able to attend...
(Tim is on his mission and Ben wasn't allowed in the delivery area because he was considered 'contagious' being under 13 years old)

He's due tomorrow and I haven't had one sign of labor! I'm going CRAZY!!
I've tried everything:
I went for a nice looooooong walk.
I used the exercise ball.
Jeff man-handled some pressure points.
My entire house is clean. Even the STAIRS. (It's a HUGE feat. Don't ask.)
The baby's room is all done. (Except the chair railing. Don't ask.)
I ate some spicy food.
I participated in the unmentionable.
I was going to buy some black cohosh, and then realized I was too poor. (It's the thought that counts, right? Maybe not...)
He's so stubborn. (Just like Mom. And Dad. Oh crap.)
Why won't he come already!!?
I guess I can't really complain until after tomorrow.
I just thought I'd get a head start, since I can already tell he's going to be difficult.

Last Saturday my sister-in-law, Meaghan, got married to Lukas in the Mesa, Arizona temple. It was a beautiful day and absolutely perfect. Everything turned out wonderfully--Meaghan looked gorgeous, the reception was a blast, and everyone had a great time. I was actually asked by Meaghan if I would be one of her bridesmaids, in which I replied, "Well if you don't mind a fat pregnant lady in your line, sure!" Haha, I had a really fun time being a part of her special day...maybe a little TOO much fun, only because I was paying for it the next day...I could hardly move!!! It didn't help either that I totally biffed it and bruised my knee up--funny story:
So I was walking over to Jeff to ask him a question when my left heel (I specifically wore flats to avoid any injury...but aparently the half-inch heels on my flats were still too much) anyway, my left heel slid from underneath me and I went crashing to the ground and fell on my right knee...in my rush to get up so I could avoid any embarrassment, I stepped on my dress and fell again in the same position...by that time it was too late to avoid everyone's staring eyes and the flocks of people rushing to my side to help the clumbsy prego. Haha, I felt so dumb, and thankfully there was a logical explanation to my slip--we found some water on the ground, which is what I blamed any time any one asked. I walked, red-faced, over to Jeff, who was literally 5 feet away, and said, Did you not see me fall??
Jeff: You fell?
In other news (although it's not really news...), yesterday Jeff and I had fun spending time with his family for FHE. We ate some delicious soup that his momma made, then carved pumpkins, ate some homemade caramel apples, and watched Charlie Brown's 'The Great Pumpkin.' I'm sad that I didn't have my camera with me while we were there so I could show you all the different pumpkins that we all carved, but this one was ours...
Isn't it cute?? I definitely didn't do it free hand, so i can't take credit for the idea, but it was pretty dang hard!! I'm surprised it came out so well! I'm sad that it's already getting mushy, but those silly pumpkins never last more than a day or so once you cut into them...
So who thinks I'm going to be early with this baby?
