Im Oficially an Aunt

My younger sister Nicole had her first baby yesterday! She was 3 days overdue and all of us were dying to meet this little thing. They named her Olive Elizabeth Cramer. She was 8lbs. 1oz and 19inches long. She is so darling we all love her to death!! She looks so concerned in this picture! If you look close she has red hair!!
Nicole had red hair when she was born but it changed really fast, but I hope it stays red! Cant you just picture the cutest little crazy girl named Olive
with red hair!

This is a couple hours after Nicole had Olive, doesnt she look great!
She was so brave and decided that she wanted to have the baby naturally! She labored at home for two hours, then went to the hospital at 3:15am and had Olive at 6:58am! Everything went great, she and the baby were healthy. A couple hours later the nurses came in to check Nicole and found she had a hematoma the size of a softball! She was taken into surgery right then. Everything ended up ok, they stiched up the broken blood vessles and drained the excess blood. It was just so sad because she had done all that work to labor naturally and with no anesthesia and then had to be put under for the surgery! She went through alot! But she said it was still worth it for the experience!

She is way more brave than me!!!

Sawyer was loving his new and only cousin! He kept pointing to her and while laughing would say "baby owive"! It was so cute he wanted to be close to her so he kept putting his face close to hers, then he would kiss her and he kept patting her tummy. It was so fun to watch! He is going to be such a cute big brother!

He also wanted to be a baby like Olive so his uncle scott put him in Olives hospital bed and was pushing him around, it was so funny! He loved it! He was just hanging out in there!

I just had to take a pic of my little man being all swave with his hands in his pockets! So cute!

Jared and I are so excited to be an aunt and uncle for the first time! We cant wait to spend more time with baby Olive! We are so greatful Nicole and the baby are healthy and happy! We love you Nicole thanks for giving us baby Olive!

Fun in the Mud

The last couple of months we have been slowly finishing our backyard, well side yard, and it has been quite the project! (Pics coming soon!) Sawyer has been loving every second of it. If you dont know already Sawyer is the ultimate little boy. He loves all things crawling, sticky, messy, wet etc. His most favorite thing to do though is play in the mud! Jared had to dig this trench around our yard for the sprinkler system and like a magnet sawyer went straight for the ditch head first!
He had the time of his life, he rubbed it in his hair for some reason and even ate some of it! Such a funny kid! We Love our little mud monster!

A couple weeks ago I got a new car, thanks to my awesome hubby,
and I have been wanting to keep it spic and span so Soy and
I decided one day to swing by the carwash. I was all excited for Sawyer
cause when I was little the car wash was like way fun and cool with
the big brushes and to watch the soap drip down all the windows.
So we drove into the wash garage thing and I parked and the wash started. I was trying to get Sawyer all excited so I was saying
how cool it was and I would say "Wow" and he would say
"wow" It was really cute, he was trying to get into it. then the water got close to his window and he got this nervous look on his face and he whined a little, and I was quick to tell
him that "Its not scary its just wa wa!" then he would give me this
half smile! This went on with all of the stages of the car wash.
The water, soap, brushes, no spot spray and the dryer would start,
I would get all excited, and sawyer would copy me, then it would come
by his window and he would get all uncomfortable and
I continued to tell him that "This is so fun!" "Its not scary!"
"Wow cool!"
The car was came to an end and we pulled out, me saying
the whole time how fun that was! In all my enthusiasum I turned
around to see if sawyer was responding and reached
back to touch his leg, thats when I noticed the
soap suds dripping down the inside of sawyers door window! I leaned
back even farther and saw that his window was rolled
down like 2 to 3 inches!!!! And he was soaked!
I felt so bad, I gasped and sat there for a few seconds
wondering how in the world I didnt notice my son getting sprayed by
the carwash, then I couldnt help but bust up
laughing! I sat and laughed seriously for like 5 minutes!
He is so cute to just sit there and only whine a little while his crazy mom
is telling him how fun this is while he is getting
creamed by water, soap, no spot spray and the dryer!!!!
Oh man Soy, your mom can be a space cadet!
