Hello friends and family!

I knew that I would be terrible at this! So much has happened since my last post.

First and most important we were blessed with our beautiful daughter Fiona Lenea! She was born on September 7th and weighed 7 pounds 4 oz. Her labor was fairly easy and actually really fun (WOOT WOOT for the epidural!).
She had a very round head and sort of looked like a fat Chinese man (that changed about 2 weeks later when the swelling went down).

She has a very mild tempered personality just like her daddy and seriously never cries. Her favorite activity is to puke on mommy, I heart smelling like regurgitated formula! Being a mother is seriously disgusting most of the time, yet I still freaking love it! Her official nickname is Stinky... we like to say it with a high pitched squeal. All in all Fiona is more than we could have ever dreamed a perfect baby would be like!

Christian is loving having the winter semester off school. The stress of having a baby, 16 units at byu, working 30 hours a week and having a crazy wife put him over the edge. Understandable. He is now only working and playing Basketball. He is improving his game a ton and Fiona and I love to watch him play.

I am LOVING not being pregnant. I have lost a total of 14 pounds in a month. I work out at least 4 days a week and try and make healthier food choices. I started doing makeup again and have been able to work more and more every month. We currently still have a year and a half left here in Rexburg and I am hoping to change my attitude about living here before then. It is really true that you don't find the happy life, you make it. If I could focus on that a little more often, maybe I'll survive the next winter.

Till next year... (J.K.)

Hello up there! It is great 'seeing' the 3 of you. Jessica, I LOVE that last photo of you & Fiona!!! I enjoyed seeing the 2 of you @ Christmastime. I hope it won't be too long till next time. I'm glad to hear Christian has a break from school to enjoy more time with you & bebe Fiona. BTW, I think you are Wonderwoman along w/Superman there--after being in So. Cal so long, I cannot really imagine enduring the winters there. It is nearly like Alaska! Take care & enjoy the warmer weather coming up. ;)
Love, Aunt Amy
