2 Things Corrine Loves

Corrine absolutley loves her bath! We are so happy that she likes it. The first time we put her in her tub after her cord fell off she acted like it was the best thing ever! She has reflux and is pretty fussy, but when we put her in her tub she immediately calms down. My mom loves to give her a bath and always helps bathe her!

She also loves her vibrate chair! She is not to excited about the swing yet, but she smiles at everything when you put her in it (although it doesn't last too long)!

Newborn Pictures

Erik and Sarah wanted to give Corrine a special gift and lined up Ann Montgomery from Anniemations Photography to take some newborn pictures of Corrine when she was a week old. They turned out so beautiful: thanks uncle Erik and aunt Sarah! Ann came to our house so we didn't have to take her out and we were able to have our first family photo taken! Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot!

Corrine Kathleen Keyes

I haven't posted forever! When I was really pregnant, posting any pictures at all seemed like something I was not willing to do! On January 3rd, we welcomed Corrine Kathleen Keyes into the world! Corrine is a name both Blake and I liked (it is pronounced like the city), and Kathleen is Morgan's mother's name. She weighed 8 pounds 5 ounces and was 20.5 inches long at birth. January 3rd was my actual due date and I was induced at 7:30 in the morning; she was born later that night at 7:40. All in all the labor went pretty well with just a few minor issues. She had jaundice at the hospital and had to go under the lights to get rid of it. It was like a little tanning bed! That meant that she could only come out every three hours for me to feed and change her. It was hard for me to watch her under those lights all day, but she still looked pretty dang cute. She had to wear a mask to cover her eyes and we were calling it her Zorro mask! I can't believe she is already a month old!

Boat Fun!

So, we decided to buy my cousin's boat and take up boating. Actually, we have both always loved boating and water activities, but have never purchased a boat. Even though it is nearing the end of the season and I can't do much this year, we wanted to have it ready for next season and take the new baby out and have some fun family time! Here are a few pics from the first trip out on the new boat; it was a blast! Curt came up with us and Kelly brought Kendell and Cameron up for some fun times! Even though I couldn't try the wakesurfing or wakeboarding, I still loved watching Kelly and Curt try it out!

It's a Girl!

For those of you who didn't know, we are having a baby! I am 20 weeks now and we had our "big" ultrasound today and everything looked good! It is definitely a girl; now we can start shopping and doing all of the fun stuff! We have been really nervous and sort of keeping it quiet since I had a miscarriage about a year ago. I am sure we will continue to be nervous until she is born. Actually, I am not sure parents ever quit worrying about their children. We are both really excited to be expecting and Blake felt his first kick this afternoon! Here are a couple of pictures from our ultrasound today. Maybe I'll get brave and post some belly pictures sometime!

This year graduation has been an exciting time in Morgan's family. Earlier this year, my dad was asked to give the commencement address at Weber State University. At first he wasn't sure about agreeing to give it, but after he thought about what an honor it was to be asked, he decided to do it! So, on May 1st he was given an honorary doctorate degree and gave the commencement address. We were so proud of him! He did such a great job and I really think everyone really enjoyed his speech. There were even times when he had to stop for the audience to applause. It truly was a great honor for all of his many accomplishments! Here are a couple of pictures from that day.

Then, a week later, Erik graduated from the University fo Utah with his Masters of Finance degree. We are so proud of him too! I know he has been pretty stressed out for the last few months trying to finish all of his requirements, but I am sure it is well worth it today and forever! We are very excited for him and congratulate him on his accomplishment! I also noticed the ribbon around his gown for his GPA; congrats Erik! Here are a couple of pictures from his graduation this morning!

March Madness!

A couple of weekends ago, Blake, Curt, Ty, Randi, and I went to southern California to stay with my parents and enjoy the NCAA basketball games! We decided nothing was better than hanging out by the pool watching the games, right? We had such a good time relaxing, trying to get a tan, and of course, eating! None of us wanted to come home to the cold weather here in Ogden! Here are a few pictures from sunny Palm Desert.
