Yesterday Blake blessed McCoy. He did a great job and McCoy was such a good baby during it. Poor thing has a little cold right now though, but we think he is getting better. We are so lucky to have such great families that could come to the blessing. My mom was able to come but we sure missed Rex. He was just too weak and sick to come. Also my dad, grandma, and little sisters flew in for it too.

Our little family!

Blessing outfit- we lost a button.

Well we made it through finals once again and are out of school for Christmas Break and are in Delta until after Christmas. Blake is in heaven =) We had a competition this past Saturday too. They did so good and I'm so proud of them! We got 2nd in Military, 2nd in Dance, and 1st in Character. Dixie is going to be tough to beat!

McCoy and Cousin Briggs playin in the wagon.

6 weeks old!!! He is almost 9 lbs now!

This post is dedicated to my wonderful parents... It's their ANNIVERSARY today=) I'm sure it's a bittersweet day considering the situation.

16 years ago today, Rex and Tauna Lindley were married at Union Station in Ogden, UT. I was the flower girl =) Rex got some baggage; a kid and an inside dog!- The dog grew on him, and I guess so did I;)

This is when Rex had hair and my mom had big hair. Haha. Oh and I wouldn't take off my crown for anything!

How it all started... Rex's sister lined them up over the phone (very strange story) because we lived in Utah and He lived in Texas. My mom went and visited him a few times and couple months later we went out to visit and Rex took us on a horse carriage ride in Downtown Dallas. He asked my mom to marry him. After they got married, we moved to Red Oak, Texas. I had a kitty room! I could go into all the stories about Rex but that will be another post someday.
This past July, they were finally sealed for all time and eternity in the Dallas, Texas Temple. The had been trying to get sealed for a EVERY LONG TIME! It all worked out perfect and just in the nick of time.

Thank you Rex for taking such good care of us and loving both of us.
We love you guys!!! Happy Anniversary! MUAH <3

Almost A Month

Where has the time gone?! I swear it was just yesterday we were leaving the hospital to come home. Well McCoy is getting so big. He is now out of preemie diapers and clothes and can now fit into newborns. I don't have many newborn clothes because we were expecting him to be 7 or 8 lbs and everyone said that they aren't in newborn clothes for very long. So luckily my aunt is sending me all her clothes. Thanks Janette!
He is 4 weeks old today and will be a month old this Saturday. And for his birthday, we will be at UVU for his first drill team competition, to cheer on our Talon's! Saturday will be very interesting to see how well he does away from home and with lots going on. When I've taken him to practice he just sleeps so good through the blaring music so hopefully he will do the same there too.
His Stats are:
Weight: 7.5 lbs= 8%
Height: 20 inches= 10%
Head: 14 inches= 11%

He is starting to like his swing.

McCoy likes his sling. So does mom, so I can do stuff.

Our precious little boy

He is so cute when he sleeps.

The last 2 weeks have been rough. McCoy was so gasy so he would just cry and scream, but once he pushed it out he was so happy. Now he is sleeping at night for 5 hours before waking up to eat. Blake and I couldn't be happier! But during the day it's still every 3 hours. He has started to spit up, or should I say shoot up. He sure can shoot it far too!

Since his cord fell off, we can give him real baths.

Blake has been a great help. He is way more involved with helping me more than I ever thought he would be. He is changing diapers, burping, feeding, and gets up with him in the night. There were many times when McCoy be would be wide awake and would cry if you put him down, so Blake would rock him for a while so I could get some sleep. I'm so lucky to have him as a husband. I don't think I could have survived these past weeks without him. Lover you Blake!

Loves hanging out on dad's chest.

This upcoming week is our last week of school and then it's finals. I don't have any finals =) WHOOT WHOOT! Love being an education major! Blake has like a billion, of coarse. But he will do awesome like always.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and that yall got some smokin Black Friday deals!
