Introducing the cutest nephew in the whole wide world!

Cooper Matthew Carter

Oh, how I love this little baby!
I'm obsessed!

Crystal was induced on Wednesday September 21st.
I went to the hospital as soon as I got out of class
I went home at 8pm when the Mr. finished class/study group
ate dinner and hit the hay.
Told Cam to call me when Crystal was ready to have him.
You see, she stayed at 3.5 for like 5 hours!

At 3am I woke up to 3 missed calls, texts and a voicemail
I woke Kyle up and we drove to the hospital
We got there right before he was born.

Cooper was born September 22, 2011 @ 3:42am

I spend every second I can loving that sweet boy and admiring all of his HAIR!

Uncle Marky

Happy Little Family!

This little man has my heart!

I cried.

Vanessa Bentley.
She was an amazing person.

I first met her when we moved to Tucson 5 years ago and went to our new ward.
I was not excited about moving, going to a new ward, making new friends, etc.
But she was so loving and welcomed me the instant she met me.

She made me feel comfortable in my new surroundings
Got to know me personally
Invited me to activities to make more friends
Sat with me at lunch at the "Mormon table" so my brother & I weren't alone.

Everyone knew who she was.
She was a pretty amazing person.

I found out yesterday morning that she passed away last Tuesday.
I cried as soon as I read the text from my mom.
bawled actually.

She was serving as a Missionary for The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints in New York.
She was involved in a car accident and was put on life support but passed later that evening.
read more here , here or here.

It's kind of mind boggling that she's gone
Even though we have the knowledge through the Gospel of Jesus Christ that will see her again, it's still hard.

I laid in bed last night wide awake thinking about her.
She was such a good person.

Its hard to think that two of my friends, both so young, have died this year.

Mr. Husband keeps telling me, it's because they were so righteous that Heavenly Father needed them more in Heaven then on this earth.

I try to think of that instead of them being gone.

The first week of school is over!

And what a week it was.

It went by quite fast but at the same time VERY slow.
if that makes any sense?

I had some very long days!

You see, I have my first class at 9:30 and then my next one doesn't start until 3:30
I get to spend a few of those hours with Mr. Husband but most of that time is spent
people watching
trying not to fall asleep in front of hundreds of students

I took 3 or 4 naps this week.

I'm the type of person that hates naps.
I feel like I am wasting away my day.

But as soon as I got home from school, I told Mr. Husband to come snuggle & talk to me.
5 minutes later, I was asleep.
tired much?

You betcha!

When I'm not at school, I'm working and doing homework.
Oh...the joys of being poor and in college.

I don't know if it's because my body is so exhausted or what but today I started to feel sick at work.
And it was BUSY!
The girls that closed Saturday night left a lot of things for me to do on top of the normal routine

So customer after customer came in, I was feeling so sick to my stomach saying little prayers that no one would show up so I could sit down for 5 minutes.

Well, then I started to feel dizzy, light headed, and barfy!!!

I hate feeling barfy

it would come and go, then when there was a HUGE line.... I could feel my face getting pale, I was shaking, and seriously was trying not to throw up my breakfast.

When I got my first break in between customers I ran to the back room to the nearest garbage can and up-chucked!


I hate, absolutely hate throwing up.

And, no...I am not pregnant.

Funny how when you are married and sick people automatically assume you are prego.


sorry to disappoint.

Speaking of prego.. my sis-in-law is gunna pop out that lil nephew of mine soon and I can't wait to get my baby fix!!!

woot woot
