1 Month Birthday!!

Happy One Month Birthday Brightyn! A whole month has gone by now and we have loved every minute with our little Bright Eyes. Here are some of her firsts and the special moments we caught on camera.

This was her first car ride on our way home from the hospital. It was so fun to bring her home!

This sweet swing was the group gift at my baby shower. This is one of her first times in it. Thanks everyone for the great gift!

Brightyn was a lady bug for her first Halloween. Aunt McKenna got her this little sleep 'n play outfit that was so cute on her. Even though it was a 0-3month size it was pretty big on her, but I still think it was adorable:) We were in Thatcher for Halloween so Brightyn even got to go trick-or-treating with Uncle Spencer. Well sort of, we stayed in the car while Spence ran up to the doors. It was real fun! I'm already excited for next year.

Baby girl just LOVES her bath time! Whether it's in the bathtub or Grandma's kitchen sink she just relaxes and soaks it all in. It's the perfect thing to get her all ready for bed.

Every day we do a little tummy time and she is getting SO STRONG! Check it out she can totally push up on her arms and lift her head up just about as high as it can go. The first time she did it Brigham and I were so surprised, not to mention dang PROUD! But of course we are so proud of anything she does. Even a big burp after meal time gets applause from me.

Grandma Trina got a hold of a baby scale so we got to weigh Brightyn when we were in Thatcher last weekend. We're not sure if the scale was exactly accurate but she weighed in at 10LBS!! We knew she was getting bigger but we didn't think she was that much bigger. Of course she is still tiny, but I can't believe how fast she grows. I guess it's true that you have to savor every moment because before you know it they'll be grown (wipe a tear).

Brightyn Ann Stevens!!!

And mom is finally posting it on her one week birthday.

Brightyn Ann
Born October 14th at 12:06pm
7lbs 13oz, 21in

I love nakie pictures. Brightyn sure knows how to strike a pose already. She makes the cutest little faces:) We call this one Pink Steel (look out Zoolander).

She loves to stick her tongue out or her bottom lip. When she was born the nurses kept talking about her little pouty face and saying mama better watch out, but she has just been an angel-who likes to make faces.

Aunt Kassidy was dying to try this bow on her. It's so cute, haha, it's about as big as her head. Thanks for making it Marla. I love it! And thanks for teaching me to make all kinds of bows. She'll be decked out for life!

No this beanie is not from Old Navy or Gap, even though it looks like it. My friend Kelly made it for her and I just love it. It fits her perfect! Thanks girl.

Anxiously Waiting!!

Hopefully this is the last prego picture I take. Only one week until my due date and I wish she was already here. At the last visit doctor said we're both doing fine and she's probably about 8lbs. So any day now...
Hurry up baby girl! I can't wait much longer!!!!

Lacey Bloom

So my cousin Bree that did my shower is like unbelieveably talented and she just started a new blog to sell some of her sweet goods! She makes the cutest stuff so check it out. You'll love it!! I sure do. Here's a few favs. It was hard to narrow it down.

Valentine Decor Blog

I found this blog that makes really cute vinyl signs for all occasions. Here are a few of the signs I liked and she also does custom made stuff. Check it out!

Elder Stevens

A few weeks back we went up to Thatcher for Brigham's brother McKay's farewell. He did awesome on his talk and it was way fun for all the family to spend time together before the big day. By the way, he's going to the Uruguay Montevideo West mission. Then on Wednesday, August 23, we all went to the airport and cried our eyes out saying goodbye for the next 2 years. McKay is gonna be a great missionary, but we'll all miss him tons! Go get 'em buddy!!

There he goes for the next two years!

Baby Shower Blast!!

I just think I am so lucky! My mom and sister Toni and my cousins Bree and Dani threw me the dang cutest baby shower I have ever seen! They really out did themselves. You girls are the BEST!! It was loads of fun and we got tons of really great gifts for baby girl. Thank you so much to everyone who came and sent us gifts. We feel so blessed to have so much love and support!

This is Bree, Me, Toni and Dani (left to right)

I wish I took more pictures of the decorations they were adorable! But I know Bree has got some good pics on her blog so check it out. Here is Mom, Bree, Toni and Dani showing off the refreshments table. Didn't they do awesome?! And it didn't just look good, it was all delicious!!!

Kassidy, Me and McKenna...the soon-to-be aunts!!

Florida Sunrise

Ever since last summer when we lived in North Carolina I thought it would be so cool to watch the sunrise over the ocean. So one morning I pulled Brig out of bed to go down to the beach and he might not agree but I think it was totally worth it! It was so beautiful! Here are some pics so you can let me know if you agree, but the pictures really don't do it justice.

Here's the sun just starting to rise.

Brig was a little sleepy, but he's so good to me. I have the best husband ever!!

The final masterpeice. SO BEAUTIFUL!!!

Pregnancy Update

I made a deal with Brigham that I wouldn't post any prego pics on our blog until we got back to AZ because he wanted it to be a surprise how big I got. So now we're back and I have a little updating to do.

I went to Babies R Us to register the other day and I was so pumped because I got to park in the "Expectant Mothers Parking"! I've always thought it would be sweet when I could finally park there and now I can! Yipee! I better live it up while I still can ;)

This is the last mug shot I had Brigham take. I think I must have been a little over 30weeks here but I can't quite remember because Brig didn't let me post it until now.

This is a picture of all us girls at Olive Garden in Florida. There are three of us that are pregnant so the girls threw us a little joint baby shower. It was way sweet of them and we all had lots of fun. I miss you girls!!!!!

Fun in Florida

The beach is beautiful here and lots of fun. One morning this week we went with everyone to the beach. We had a great time swimming and playing football.

While Brigham is out working his butt off I get to hang out with the other girls out here (I know, it's just not fair). Here's a bunch of us out at lunch for Whitney and Leslie's birthdays. So fun!

It's a GIRL!

After two confirming ultra sounds I think it's safe to say that we have a little girl on the way (Sorry Spence). We're so excited! I'm spending all my free time making braclets, socks, and blankets for her.

Here's my first baby belly picture. I'm pretty proud of it! Now I'm more than half way (22 weeks). Just last week Brigham got to feel her kicking for the first time. It was pretty sweet!

First Grandbaby!

Anson and Tennille beat us to the punch. They had lil' Shaefer on April 27th. He is such a sweet little boy. I'm so excited to be an aunt! The whole family just loves him!!!

Toni's Graduation

So I left Brigham in Florida for a week to go back home. Sounds crazy to leave after only being there a few weeks, I know, but I feel justified for a few reasons: 1. My doctor's appointment 2. Toni's graduation 3. Visiting my new, first, one and only nephew! And Anson and Tennille too of course.

Toni's Graduation was great! I was so happy I got to be there for her. Congratulations Girl! Now on to ASU- Go Devils!

The Drive to Florida

After 30 some odd hours of being on the road in our overloaded car we finally made it to Florida. Our apartment here is sweet; two stories, our own garage and a little pond out back. We don't know what to do with all this extra space. But we do love visitors (hint, hint)!

Emilee's Wedding

Here's me, Megan, Emilee and Bree at Emilee's wedding. Congratulations Em and BJ! You two are perfect! I'm so excited that all four of us cousins are married now.
