Places to go!

I've come to realize that for a little baby, Addison is quite the traveler. Brian and I had always said that having a baby would not tie us to being "stuck at home". Unfortunately, she is usually only awake for the drive and sleeps once we make our destination. Our most recent trip was to Solvang with the entire Hettinger clan. Brian and I drove up the night before and had ourselves a "mini" vacation in a quaint inn. The next day, we met everyone and hung out in the town. It was so fun to spend the day with everyone and explore!

Her other trips have included the Aquarium of the Pacific (in Long Beach).

She slept through the whole thing as well!

Here are cousin Misty and I touching jelleyfish......sooo cool!

And in September, we went with some of the Foust Family to Oak Glen. While there, we got to taste some delicious cider, eat yummy bbq, and pick fresh berries.

Our little blessing

Addison Morgan arrived July 26, 2011 at 4:11pm. My labor wasn't quite what I expected, but she is worth every pain and discomfort I went through.
I've been in love with this little girl since I found out we found out were having her, but that love was multiplied hearing her first cry and seeing her for the first time. My heart is so full when I look at her and I feel so blessed to have brought her in to the world.
She just turned 7 weeks old this past Tuesday, and all the parents who told me to treasure every moment, are so right! Time is flying by! I teared up when she first out-grew a pair of pjs.
Brian and I love to hold her and sing to her - I hope she loves music as much as we do!
Here's a quick run-down of Addison at 7 weeks:
*She loves to sit in her swing and sway
*She coos in her sleep (and snores!)
*She loves to move her hands (perhaps she'll lead music one day!)
*She smiles all the time-ever since she was born! And no, it's not gas.... ; )

2nd Anniversary

I've gotten behind again in blogging.... But in March, we took a quick weekend trip to Palm Springs to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. I told had told Brian I just wanted to go some place where I could relax by the pool and read....I quickly discovered my new favorite vacation destination!! - The weather was perfect (despite that it seemed to be raining everywhere else in So Cal) and the atmosphere very relaxing. And I found a restaurant that makes the BEST banana splits. We had a great time and I can't wait to go back!!

Confirmed news!

On March 17th, we had our anatomy scan, aka ultrasound to confirm our little one's gender. As most of you know, I've felt all along we were having a girl, but we wanted and needed to make sure. So,'s a GIRL!

She's waving "Hi" or.... (giving us the finger here haha) : )

Celebrating 2 Years

March 7, 2011 marked our 2 year wedding anniversary. Since our anniversary fell on a week day, we decided to plan a weekend get away for a later time. But, the night before, our good friends, Neal and Stephanie took us out for a delicious dinner at Buca di Beppo. We had plenty of leftovers for another delicious meal the night of our anniversary - and yay! - no cooking for me!
The beautiful bouquet (that Brian picked out himself) with a colorful variety of flowers.

Later, we played my new favorite xbox game - DJ Rap Star. - An awesome game where you get to "rap" to various rap songs ( a lot of old skool rap). I could seriously play this game all night! But we kept it at a mere 2 hours... ; )

Been Awhile....

When I started this blog, I knew it'd be difficult to keep it updated. BUT, I never expected to let 8 months pass before writing on here again! Where did the time go?! I think last year had so many emotions, that I just let time get the best of me. There were so many things to blog about, and instead of updating, I just got more behind. But I'm back! ( I hope....)

I was so sick of 2010. It wasn't all bad, but facing two miscarriages in one year seemed like more than I could handle. I could not wait for a new year and a fresh start. With this new year, brings a new sense of hope. And a renewed faith that things will be ok. When I found out in November that I was pregnant again, I was nervous, but I had an intuition that things were going to be ok.

We had our first ultrasound at 6 weeks and another at 12 weeks. Each visit was filled with optimism by not just us, but the nurse showing us our baby too. What a difference to have a caring medical professional! At at our 12 week ultrasound, our little one was jumping around like crazy. What an awesome experience to witness!!

Here's a picture of our little one at 12 weeks, 2 days....

More to come soon.....

Roadtrip to Arizona

This past weekend we took a quick trip to Phoenix, Arizona. Brian's Dad graduated from University of Phoenix with his Bachelor's Degree in Business- Public Administration. It was a special day to see him walk with his class and to celebrate his accomplishment! The rest of the time was spent relaxing in our hotel's lazy river and exploring the local restaurants. It was short but a nice weekend get-away! On the way home, we stopped at the Dinosaurs in Cabazon. It was a nice way to end our trip.
