Moab 2011

Had a great Easter weekend in Moab with my family. JJ and Matt both seemed to love it :) Wheeling will be in the blood forever! We drove down Friday night. Saturday we did Hell Roaring Rim. JJ was so cute and happy. We hid easter eggs for all the kids on the trail. I stepped on a cactus OUCH! Easter Sunday we went out and did the Mashed Potato. I used to be very ballsy when it came to hard core wheeling but having a baby really turns you into a wuss. He kept giggling in his sleep on the trail. Poor Matt got super beat up with his bum shoulder.


Matt had shoulder repair surgery yesterday. He does not do very well with anesthesia and was very sick. So glad grandma had JJ till tonight. Matt is doing better today. The first week will be rough.

So for now life goes on.....

I've decided that I totally and completely HATE computers!!!! They never obey my commands or do what I want them to! Ha ha I thought revamping my layout would make me want to blog....WRONG! Now I find myself being totally negative.....Frustration is not my favorite feeling lately. Its so hard to have a fussy baby who demands constant changes of entertainment and a computer that won't cooperate. I love being a stay at home mom but sometimes I think it would be lots easier to go to work for the day. Constant teething, puking, and screaming....maybe eight hours of everyday work would be a nice break. Although I would miss the countless smiles giggles and all the new things he is doing everyday. I take relief in the fact that this is not an easy job for anyone. We all have struggles and infinite love gets us through everyday. I can tell I'm just spilling every thought and feeling...maybe this can be therapy. Sorry to those who decide to read this because I am not writing for anyone but myself! Call me selfish...

Since I last wrote on here we have moved to Holladay. JJ is almost crawling, he gets up on his hands and knees and rocks it reminds us of a chameleon. I can't believe he is five months old! We are headed to Moab this weekend a much needed break for all of us I'm sure! No jeep this year but its still my favorite place to getaway to, and no last minute struggle to make sure the jeep is ready to go.

So for now I will get off the computer and finish my day getting puked on and remaining in my jammies with my hair a mess and no make up on.

Survey of 2010

  1. What did you do in 2010 that you’d never done before?

Our Crazy Week

Our busiest week of the year has started! Christmas was great! JJ got spoiled of course as did mom and dad :) We blessed JJ last night it was amazing. I am so grateful for this wonderful gospel and my eternal family! Tomorrow is Matt and I's one year anniversary, I can't believe everything that has happened in just one year! So in honor of the year ending we will do a year in review. We moved to Murray from Springville on March 1st. Got our puppy that week, and just a few weeks later found out we were expecting! We lost sweet Kim in April and we miss her so much! Having JJ with us we can really feel how close we really are to lost loved ones! Then months of contractions and not so fun pregnancy complications. We finally welcomed JJ to the world November 18! He was 6lbs 14oz and 21" long!
He has already grown so much! We had to find a new home for our dog, he thought it was ok to eat everything including baby socks and shoes! This Wednesday is my 22nd birthday! Matt and I will be spending the night at a hotel in Orem for New Years/Anniversary this Friday. I can't believe this year is ending when it feels like it just began. We are so excited for the new year and new milestones in our lives!

Obviously I am horrible at writing a blog! Lots has been going on lately! We have officially made 2 trips to the hospital in the last week! Blood pressure issues and lots of confusing contractions! All I can say is I'm so ready for little JJ to get here! But I will try to be patient and wait until he is ready! I'm going to try to be better about writing and hopefully I can find good ideas to get me going on a topic!

Monday, August 30, 2010


I can't believe its been months since I've updated. Ok I can believe it because I'm really bad at this kind of thing...I'm trying. I am not on official no movement bedrest. I have been limited to Pelvic rest and moderate activity. So basically if I feel up to a walk thats ok.

We found out we are having a boy! We will keep the family name going he will be James (John)Cheshire, he will be the fifth generation that will carry the Cheshire last name.

We get to meet our sweet newest niece this week and we are so excited! I hope it doesn't make me want to get our little guy out. It will be a very busy week!

I will try to keep you better posted on whats going on! Love you guys!
