The Boys

We took these a few weeks ago and are lucky any turned out since we estimated what time the sun would be going down wrong... they are so photogenic!

I hope that after seeing these you don't change your mind about wanting me to take your pictures for some reason!

I wanna take some pictures.

I've decided I like photography and I want to pursue it further. Well, I decided that a while ago. So, Can I take your picture to help me learn? Either if you live here in Vegas or in Utah, send me an email (or leave a comment). Come on, FREE PICTURES with edited images on a disc! You'd be crazy not to volunteer you/your kids/your whole family/a bride you know/an engaged couple you know/a newborn/something else with a face? Remember, it's time to send out those Christmas Cards with your picture!

The taping of "Lets Make A Deal" that Trent and I attended, aired yesterday! And you can see Trent in all his toothfairy glory quite a few times since we had such great seats! Follow this link and skip to these seconds to see us: (Trust me, you'll be glad you did, Trent is up to his usual shananigans! Even though I'm sitting right next to him, he got a lot more airtime!)
17:23-18:12 (Watch Trent's face, especially after she wins the cash... priceless)(and I don't know why I look so pissed)
and my personal favorite 31:50-32:20 I think
We really had so much fun and would love to do it again if anybody wants to go!

I just loved this picture of her crying...

this last week I've put her on a schedule and she is technically sleeping through the night. From 8pm-ish to 2am-ish then til 6-am ish. What a little angel.

Beauty Tips

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness,
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more then things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed:
never throw out anyone.

What have I done?

One week ago, I decided to start weaning Ila off her pacifier. I read that now is the best time and after 3 months old it becomes a habit. Well, it was easy... too easy. She didn't miss it at all, she continued to be the sweet little well behaved baby that she is. Everytime she got fussy I fed her and she never seemed to miss the pacifier. Until the dark clouds of Tuesday rolled in. She started acting like she couldn't live without it. She didn't want a bottle, she was fussy and kept sticking her fist in her mouth. And, she got better and better at finding her thumb!!!! I said, "H No you don't!" and stuck her pacifier into her mouth. Last night it got really bad, she woke up for her 1:00 am feeding and while I was making her bottle, she was so starving she kept knocking her pacifier out of her mouth and her thumb would go straight in! I will not have a thumbsucker and the pacifier is the lesser of 2 evils so she wins. Now, how do I deal with the fact that she has found her thumb?
First, I camp outside her crib all night to rip it out of her mouth anytime she sticks it in. I am willing to do this, I did it for awhile last night. I just need to know how long babies usually have this need to suck on something, when does it start to go away? 4 months? 6 months? please somebody tell me.
Second, would it hinder her small motor skills development and/or be considered child abuse to perhaps, tape her thumbs down? Cause I think that sounds like a great idea.
Third, have you had a baby that occasionally put their thumb in their mouth but didn't make a habit of it?
I'm scared.

Blessing Day

Trent blessed Ila on Sunday, he did such a great job. He said so many important things pertaining to the gospel and I'm so grateful for such a spiritual husband. Trent's parents and my parents came down from Utah for it and it was good spending time with everyone! Everyone seems to be a lot more anxious to come down now that Ila is around, we have seen family more in the last 3 months than we have the last year!
Unfortunately, in the picture, you can't see the intricate detail of the dress or the booties that went with it. I can't believe the time that was put into making this dress and that someone would go to so much trouble making it for us. We will have it forever. My mom brought down my blessing dress with her and I plan on putting Ila in it to take a picture cause I love it!
