Hello there

This wednesday at 7 we have an appointment with our bishop, then we're going out to eat for our anniversary. Just think by the end of next month Sean and I could qualify to go to the TEMPLE!!! Its been a long year but both of us have learned a great deal and have been able to really grow together and a year ago I didn't think that I would ever be able to say this but I am grateful for this learning experience. Joan went to the doctor today... she had to get a shot so she really didn't like it all that much!! Her face turned to violet like the girl from that charlie and the chocolate factory movie. It was so sad!! She now weighs 9lbs 13.5oz and 21 3/4 inches long. The doctor proscribed some medicine to help with her tummy. She seems to have some stomach acid problems and thats why she spits up so much and some times it spews out of her mouth where we both end up soaked. Then she has this love hate relationship with the bottle where she really wants to eat but then starts to cry. The doc says that its to do with the muscle in the stomach that holds down the stomach acid so she's giving her some zertic - I think thats what its called - Sean is going to go get it tonight from the pharmacy. She said that if that doesn't work then she wants to switch her formula. So we'll see. Well Sean should be home any minute so I'll let you go. Happy family home evening night ! love you guys!!

We just signed for our own place this past weekend but we aren’t able to move in until they’re finished building, it’s looking like
its going to be around October 15th. It’s a block from Sean’s school out in Avondale. Right now we’re in Mesa, so it’s about an
hour drive both ways for him. So needless to say we’re really looking forward to being in our own place where its so much closer
and we’ll actually get to see each other.

Having a baby went well as expected.. I was induced on Wednesday Aug 20th at 8:30am but Joan wasn't born until 9:59 that night. They were really worried about her all through out the day because she was hardly moving and I wasn't dilating. At 7 I was still at 3 cm which I had been at all day and I still had to reach 10 cm. The dr came in and said that if by 9 if I hadn't made any progress they were going to do a c-section. They came and checked at like 8:45 and I was at 5 cm then shortly after 9:30 I started to feel like I needed to push so the nurse checked and sure enough Joan was on her way. They called in everyone and then shortly there after Joan was born. Here are some videos of her. There are MANY movies that we've made of her but we haven't uploaded them yet. There are a ton of pictures also but again we haven't uploaded them either. if the links on the post below dont work here are the links directly to youtube..

She was born 8 lbs 13 oz and 21 1/2 in long!!! She was almost a 9 lb baby!! HUGE!!!! Everyone, including the dr., was expecting at the max a 8 lb baby but she was almost a full pound more!!!!! Well I should go.. if you want you should subscribe to my youtube account that way whenever I upload the other movies it will let you know.
