Mobile Uploads

Here are two months worth of pictures from my phone. I wish I had a real camera readily available for some of these moments. I would love to have them in better quality but my camera is in another room a lot of the time and my phone is always on me, so the iphone it is.

Starting with Lucy's birth. This was the first time we had skin to skin contact. I melted instantly and never wanted it to end.

Still, on her birthday.

Josh's Birthday and a Great-Grandma Visits

The first week of the month was a busy one for us. We had 2 sets of out of town visitors, and Josh's birthday to celebrate.

We went on our first date, sans Lucy, since she was born. It was weird being without her but we had a great time together and are looking forward to another night out alone. We enjoyed Red Iguana, our favorite Mexican restaurant in Utah and a stroll around Gateway. We both handled being away from Lucy much better than we expected. We fully trusted our babysitters so I'm sure that's why we felt so calm.

For Josh's birthday he got a tracing of Lucy's hand and foot, a picture of her for his office, and tickets to the U/TCU football game, and the Jazz/Clippers game. He enjoyed an entire day of sports, including his own flag football game.

Lucy with her first babysitters, Brett and Heather.

Thanks Brett and Heather for taking such great care of our little babe.

Happy Birthday to my Joshua Ray. I love you more than I know how to express. You are such an amazing father and are the best husband I could imagine. Lucy and I are both so lucky to have you as our own. We love you!

My Grandma Judy and her boyfriend Bob came to SLC to meet sweet Lucy June. We loved having them in town and it was really exciting for my grandma to meet her first great-grandchild. We enjoyed dinners together, cuddle time with Lucy, and they were also able to visit temple square and Park City while they were here.

We love you Grandma, thank you for coming to visit us!

Boy oh boy, am I behind! I haven't updated our blog in almost a month, and didn't even notice until last week. I have been enjoying our sweet Lucy so much, I totally forgot about this lil journal of mine. I am loving every second I have with our precious little babe, but I'll go into that in another post.

We were pretty lame this year for Halloween. I put very little effort into our costumes as you'll see below. It was a fairly low key weekend for us.

We went to Gardner Village to look at their Halloween setup. It is a must if you live anywhere near Salt Lake City. I love it there, especially around this time of year. They always have the best holiday decorations.

This is such a classic Lucy face.

Josh's office has a trick-or-treat for all the kiddies every year. This time was the first we were able to take a little one of our own. It was so fun watching Josh show off his little beauty. He is so proud of her. She was a big hit! Everyone was in shock over how tiny she was. Four people actually thought she was a doll.

We also went to a Halloween party at Dustin and Carly's house. We had some friends who went all out with their costumes and we felt pretty lame about ours once we got there. It was fun having some social time. I'm glad Lucy makes it easy for us to still spend time with our friends. She's a great addition to our group and is just a joy to be around.

Tori, Finn, and Joe went as a ghost buster, a ghost, and a marshmallow man.

The 3 Amigos. They made these costumes and they were amazing!

The Morrisons were a little farm family. Baby Eloise was the cutest little chick ever.

We went as a family of Antoine Dodsons. If you don't know who he is, watch the video below and you'll find out.
