Photo update

My Sister-in-law and I were talking today about how terrible we are at updating our I decided today is the day! Pictures are the best at describing whats going on in our lives!
Harper's Baby Blessing July 1st. Such a blessing in our lives.
Jayde wouldn't put her water down...but these are our kids compared to gorrilas. Jayde has the same picture of her when she was Harper's age. it's cute!
Some floor time! I love Harper's face in this picture. "what're you doing mom?"
Such big girls. It goes so fast...
How can you resist a clean and happy baby? Nothing better.
What is this? Why am I holding it?
This is Jayde getting ready to go to her first Dentist appointment! She's so big!
Giraffes at the Zoo after said Dentist appointment. We had to make up for torturing her. :) And that concludes this edition of Photo update. So much easier than having to write a ton.

Beautiful baby Harper

I think I might be a bad mother....because I haven't posted about our new baby girl! Harper Ruth Chipman was born on April 24, 2012. She was 7 lbs 3 oz and 20.75 in long! She is absolutely beautiful! See? And She is the best baby ever. Really. Right from the start when we brought her home she was sleeping atleast 4 hours at night and now, at 8 weeks, she sleeps 8 hrs a night! She's so calm and chill all the time, its amazing how easy she has made the transition from 1 kid to 2 for me. She has the cutest little smile I can not wait to see her grow up!

Where has the time gone?

I'm alive. I swear. It just may not seem like it. I cannot believe it is almost Thanksgiving. Time flies when you're running out with your head cut off. :) As much as I like to complain about how busy I've been and how much I miss Jayde...I really have been thoroughly enjoying my student teaching. I'm continuously reminded (because I forget) how much I enjoy teaching something I love and how cool it is when someone learns because of you. I love theatre and I'm starting to remember that I loved high school, even this second time around. I'm so grateful for this experience and for the fact that I'm going to have a college degree! I'm a big person! Really! I'm so glad I had the courage and determination to finish my degree after Jayde was born. I know I won't regret it.

Speaking of Jayde, she's pretty fantastic.She's 6 months old! She just has the sweetest temperment and is just a good baby all the time! When she gets fussy it's because something is usually very wrong...which is a good indicator for me. She loves playing and can sit up mostly by herself but still topples a little when things are too exciting.

I just wanted to give a brief update, make sure no one thought I was dead. :) If anyone even reads

Some New Things

This month Jayde had a few new experiences. :)She's 4 months old now so we're introducing solid foods. We tried cereal with a spoon for the first time...and she wasn't a huge fan of the spoon. But she doesn't mind it at all when we mix it with her formula in a bottle.

Jayde also got some new clothes and just loved wearing them, as you can see from her big smile!

We started reading to Jayde at night before she goes to bed. She absolutely loves all the colors on the books and is riveted by them.

And then Jayde got a new cousin! Kipton was born Sept 17 and is so tiny! I can't believe Jayde was ever that small...she looks huge compared to him now!

We also got to go see one of my best friends, Heather, play the part of Tracy Turnblad in Hairspray! It was absolutely fantastic and Jayde loved watching all the colors on stage.

On top of all these fun experiences Jayde got sick for the first time :( She had Roseola. She'd had a stuffy nose for a little while and I thought it was because I'd had a cold. Then she had a fever for about a day and then a rash showed up all over her body! Apparently that's exactly what roseola is, just a sequence of events. I didn't even get a picture of the rash before it went away. But it didn't look fun. She's was such a trooper though, hardly fussy at all even when she had a fever. She's such a sweet baby. We just love her so much!


We went to see the farm animals at Thanksgiving point and then to the Zoo all in the same week! I think once Jayde is old enough to really look at the animals, she'll love them!

School is Cool

So....I've officially become a teacher...kind of. Haha, I know it's confusing. This is my last semester for my undergrad in Theatre Arts Education and so I'm student teaching! I was assigned to Springville High School and will be teaching 4 classes as well as helping direct the musical. I was absolutely terrified to start. I just kept thinking it was going to be too hard and the kids wouldn't like me. I was scared they would just take advantage of me and not listen to me.
Luckily, my fears were mostly for naught. My first two days at school have been so fun. The kids in the classes are mostly there because they genuinely want to learn about theatre. Notice I said mostly. :) There will always be the kids who are just there because they assume it's an easy A. But...I can live with those. I will convert them to theatre!
After going to school these past couple days and having auditions for our musical (My Favorite Year) I've realized and remembered again why I love theatre so much and why I want to teach theatre to kids. I've remembered why I loved it in high school, why I loved 2 of the drama teachers I had (that's another story) and why I chose to do this major in the first place! Wooot! I think it's going to be a pretty awesome semester. I'll be sure to update again when I'm exhausted and don't like it anymore. :)

Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'

Jayde can roll over. I think it's so funny that something so us such a huge accomplishment for a baby! It takes Jayde a little while to actually get over that arm...but she does it! That's why I didn't take a would be a really long video. haha. But here are some progression pictures!
