Welcome Baby Zoey!!

The wait is over!, to hear what the sex is of Zack (my brother) & Heather's 3rd child. IT'S A GIRL!!! What an incredible day to see this new life come and join our family. There were lots of emotions through-out the day. Heather delivered at the NEW Hospital on 5300 so. State. The last time we were there was the day Baby Mac was stillborn. Memories flooded my mind of that day on June 27th, as we waited in the same waiting area. I couldn't help but think.. "Why was Zoey here to stay and Baby Mac returned home?" In my heart I know he was asked to do a special mission for our Heavenly Father and I know he went home for a reason. We won't Really understand why until the day comes when we return home to our Heavenly Father. The lesson's I have learned through Mac I am so grateful for and would never change.
As I entered the room to see Zoey I could feel the love of our Savior and of Baby Mac. Zoey is going to be a special little girl to all of us. I welcome her with open arms. I am grateful to know of the Plan of Salvation. Families will be together FOREVER.

Aunt Erin, brother Chazz and sister Zyan to the baby, and cousin's waiting for the news.
Welcome Baby Zoey!!
Zoey was born on Monday, February 23 at around 8:00 am. She weighed a whopping 9 lbs. Beautiful little girl. Congratulations Zack & Heather!!!

Terrific Tuesday with Granny Goose

This week we decided to go and visit my mom at her school. She is a 2ND Grade teacher and is excellent at it. We saw her classroom and the rest of the school as we walked to get lunch in the cafeteria. It was fun to see mom in action.

After we stopped by at Granny Gooses home to talk and hang out. I love sitting back and watching Bryson and Brock play. They have so much fun together.

Brock's Surprize

Yesterday we had a package on the door for Brock. It was from his Great Grandma Smith. (Brock's birth-fathers grandma). She sent him a Birthday gift. He was totally intrigued by it.

Great Grandma sent him a Winnie-the-Pooh bear and some dinosaur PJ's. He loved it!!

Thank you Great Grandma Smith!!

Terrific Tuesday with Great Grandpa Green

Today we decided to invite Grandpa Green to lunch. We went over to McDonald's so the kids could play. It was a great time to spend with him. I think he loved getting out of the house.

Brock with his cousin's. Bryson, Franky, and Javier.

This was Brock's favorite slide. It was a joy to see him so excited to go down the slide. He enjoyed every minute. He was so happy :)

This is the group that came. My mom pointing to Javier, Grandpa, Erin & Bryson, Heather (our cousin, is a nanny to Franky & Javier), and Brock & I.

Rub-a-Dub-Dub, a Duck in the Tub

Off the Bottle

Brock is off the BOTTLE!!! We decided on the "cold turkey" method. We tried the method with his Binky and it worked, so we thought lets try it again. And guess what? IT WORKED!! He hasn't had a bottle in a week. It's been hard for him not having the continuous flow of the bottle, but he is getting used to it. It was weird, in my mind he wasn't ready, but he was.
Brock turning one totally WEIRDED ME out. I need to get over it and realize he is not going to be a baby forever. Now comes the teaching and the discipline part. I am not going to lie, I am a little nervous. I hope and pray I do things right. So, if I ask any of YOU as a parent millions of questions, you will understand why I am asking them. I know it will be OK. I just really want to be the best mom to Brock.
