Kellen's Blessing (4/25/10)

Took me a while to write about this but on April 25 we had Kellens baby blessing! :) We had to do it really early because that was the only time Kyle's family would be out here for a while. His mom, dad, and brother were able to come for Kyle's graduation and Kellen's baby blessing.

Kyle did the blessing and it was so beautiful!! It was such a good day and Kellen was a great baby! Afterwards we had a fun lunch with all the families and friends who were at the blessing. We then had a graduation cake for Kyle so that was fun too.

Kellen slept the whole time at his own party haha but it was such a beautiful day to be able to grill outside and have the picnic outdoors. (Which is good because we woudn't be able to fit everybody in our house). Anwyay, it was a really good day and it was so much fun having all the family here and friends to be able to get together!! :)

So Stressed!!

Last night Kellen was up from 330 till almost 630 in the morning!! We didn't get to bed until one so i was already tired, he ate and had a huge poopy diaper that almost came out of his diaper onto his jammies, then he was WIDE awake for soo long!! I had a killer headache and was exhausted, therefore i was extremely emotional. I couldn't stop crying because he wouldn't go to sleep, so kyle started to get frustrated. Then i left and went into the baby room hoping not to wake kyle anymore so he could rest, but still couldn't stop crying. So at about 5 he came in and took over and i was so frustrated that i stormed out and went bawling to my bed. Kyle took it as me being mad at him (sorry babe) and went downstairs. I put in a cd of soothing music in kellens bedroom and went downstairs to get Kellen so kyle could sleep. He got upset again because i started getting mad saying i was never good enough, so i took kellen back in his room hoping to soothe him with the music and he still wasn't sleeping, so kyle came back in and started scratching my back but i was still upset so he asked to take him and i finally went to sleep for about a half hour before kyle brought kellen back in asleep and put him in his bassinet. After a few minutes his binkie came out and he started fussing again so needless to say i still didn't get much sleep..... then i slept in through yoga and it was the last day of yoga and that is my only time to get away so then kyle was leaving for work at noon and i said bye still half asleep. He left his phone here so i couldn't apologize for last night and he works a double today so he won't be back till late.... ugh!! So i wanted to go to the store to get some things and make a nice dinner for when kyle comes home but guess who can't get the car seat into the jeep?? Yep... me!! So i can't get to the store! And we haven't been grocery shopping for a while so we dont have much just lying around.... ugh!! I'm so stressed and just so blah today!!!!!!

Kellen is getting so big already! He isn't getting too much fatter but is definitely getting taller! He is already 6 weeks old in two days and I can't believe how fast the time has flown by! His two month appointment is coming up and we are so excited to see how much he weighs and how tall he is now! He is awake a lot more now and is just a squirmy little bugger! He is starting to smile even more now and loves to make little noises. He is becoming a lot more interactive and is becoming more and more fun. He is also getting cuter every day! I didn't think it was possible but it sure is!!!

I also had my first Mothers Day as a Mother! It was so fun! In church they had all the women go into the cultural hall and had lots of different yummy pies for us to eat, so that was fun! It was also my first Sunday back after having Kellen so it was a nice little treat. Kyle cooked pancakes and eggs for breakfast and then cooked a really yummy pork for dinner that night. We spent the day relaxing and spending time as a new family. It was a nice relaxing day. Just what I needed!

We went to idaho for a couple days to see my cousins who just got off their missions and one that got married the day after Kellen was born and we left Traxton home. When we came home Traxton ran RIGHT past Kyle, RIGHT past me, and straight to Kellen's carseat to sniff and make sure Kellen was okay. It was really cute, once he realized Kellen was home he ran over to greet everyone else haha. He loves his baby brother!

So some great things have been happening the past week! Kyle got an email about one of the jobs he applied for as a corrections officer at the Draper prison. They said he passed the first round or whatever and is moving on to do the tests, written, physical, and interviews!! So on Tuesday May 25 he goes to Draper for an all day thing to take all of his tests and interviews. If he passes all of the tests there is a pretty good chance he'll get the job which we REALLY NEED! If that DOES happen and he gets it then Melissa will be going down to part time which will be amazing!! I also got great news about my job!! I was working in Clinton managing a group home of boys which is about a 20 minute drive. They were hoping that the person that was filling in for me while i was on leave would be interested in staying manager so i could move to another house of girls. She decided she was interested MEANING, that the new house i will be managing is in Ogden only a few miles away, and very close to one of our really good friends! So starting June 8 i will be managing that house and hopefully getting a second raise until Kyle gets his new job :) So things have been going really great with jobs and hopefully kyle will get this new job soon!!!
