Time Flies...when you are a little busy! has been over a year since I last blogged! And A LOT has changed in that year. Here is a QUICK update...
We had another baby. Miss Mylee was born May 1st, 2011. We LOVE her so much. Jerry graduated medical school and we matched into a plastic and reconstruction residency in Loma Linda, California and we have lived here now for 10 days...we are adjusting, unpacking, and getting us, and our kids, back to somewhat of a schedule.

Jerry has had a couple days of orientation, and is really liking it. He officially starts next Thursday (june 30th), so he's off again the first few days of this new week so we will hopefully get all the little things done/decorated.

Tayden turns 2 in two weeks and is in a big boy bed already. This is the 3rd night. The first night was great. The first nap, he played in his room for an hour instead of sleeping. So we went on a walk and he fell asleep in the stroller and stayed asleep when I carried him in. Last night the neighbors had a big LOUD party. I could hear a guy that kept shouting, then others would follow. I think they woke Tayden up, because he ended up in our bed at about 12:30 am. He wiggled SO much that Mylee and I ended up in his bed. She kept waking up, and I didn't want her to wake Tayden up, and Tayden kept somehow kicking my head...yeah...he moved that much!

Mylee is growing before our eyes. She is getting so smiley, especially to her daddy. She is starting to eat more, and stay awake longer. She loves making eye contact and when you do, thats when the BIG smiles happen. She makes us all so happy...and still a little tired too!

I am excited to meet more people in the ward. We already have a couple ties to "home" through the church. It's truly amazing. We definitely miss everyone but are so excited for the things we will learn here and the people and family we will become by being here.

Found your blog through your facebook profile. I will be following you on here now! I also hadn't updated my blog in almost a year but now that we live away I want to use it to keep family and friends up to date on us. Hope everything is going well with you guys and the new adjustments. Those 16 hour days sure crept up fast! :)
