Losing teeth!

Kian has been so excited lately, because he has been losing his baby teeth! He was waiting patiently while his friends at school lost their teeth, but his were still staying put! So when he started feeling his teeth wiggle and move, he became so thrilled! It's been
fun to watch him lose his teeth and get money from the tooth fairy!

I could use some baby advice!

Well, I am loving being a nanny. But the little baby I watch is teething. He is only 4 months, but it's definitely happening. He screams for hours on end, and refuses to fall asleep even though he is so tired! 9 hours of a fussy baby, four days a week is not easy to deal with and I would love some advice! The parents don't want me to give him medicine unless he has a fever, and other than letting him chew on stuff I have no idea what I can do for him. Help!

Not much has been happening in my life as of late! The only news I have to blog about is my decision to apply to BYU-Idaho! I am currently waiting for my high school transcripts to reach admissions and for my last ecclesiastical endorsement to go through! I am anxious and excited. I am hoping to be able to go to Idaho and basically re-do college. My first year when I was at UNC, I really screwed up. I didn't go to class, I slept a lot, and dropped a lot of classes. I was not ready for college.  But I think I have grown and am ready to accept responsibility and create my own future! So, I'm praying that I get accepted!

A year without you

A year without you
I can't believe that it's been an entire year already since Shawn passed. I know that it has been a while, but it doesn't feel like a year. It doesn't feel like he has been gone for this long. Even though I looked at his sweet body at his viewing, I still expect to see him around the corner or run into him somewhere. I wonder if that will ever go away? It's kind of nice, actually. It's comforting in a way. To think about him being near, because I'm sure he is. It still feels unbelievable some times. That a close friend of mine, only 20 years old, could die. That his future on earth was gone. But luckily for me, I have a knowledge of the plan of salvation. And I know that he will be reunited with his family and that it will be the most joyous moment for them. I know that I will have the gift of being able to see him again as well, and that is amazing. What a remarkable God and Savior we have. And I know that Shawn is with his loved ones that have already passed and that he is watching over all of us and is more than okay. But I miss him. The knowledge that I have doesn't take the sadness away completely, but it does help to soften it. I love you, Shawn. ❤️

New Year's Eve & Day

Since I just recently got my wisdom teeth removed, I wasn't able to go out and do anything crazy on New Year's Eve! I was hoping to be well enough to go to the YSA Decades dance, but unfortunately, I was still having enough pain to be on the Percocet pills. So, I had to stay home. My parents and I just spent some time together, watched Modern Family and played some games!

Today (New Year's Day) we went to my grandparents' house and spent the afternoon and evening together. The whole family was there, which was nice! We got to see our family members that were out of town for Christmas! We had some yummy food, played games, and talked and laughed! It was a great way to spend the first day of the new year. I love my family! Happy 2013!!
