New Stuff

Every once in a while i get on my blogger dashboard and read some peoples updates on what is going on in their lives these days, but i NEVER update mine, as you can tell. SOOOO here is a little blip of what has been going on in the Stephens home We welcomed baby boy #2 May 2nd at around 9:40 pm he weighed 6lb 1oz he was a tiny guy and looked just like his brother although now at 3 months he is looking very Braden-like whereas Rhiot has a few more of my looks.We named him R. King Stephens and call him King its a little different and i have received some criticism on it, but if Michael Jackson can name his son Blanket, then all be im naming my kid whatever i want too! He is a really good baby. sleeps 6-7 hours every night before waking up to eat. he sleeps in his own bed, which Rhiot would NEVER EVER do. When he gets mad he gets PISSED, otherwise he is normally really happy. I love him a lot and its so fun having another squishy baby with chunky cheeks to nibble on! Rhiot aka Big brother is 2 and almost 3 months. He has been potty trained since a few months before he turned two he just did it himself and it was super easy. He finally started sleeping in his own bed in his own room. im thrilled! i finally get to cuddle my hubby after 2 full years of not. haha. Rhiot is talking up a storm and is even counting to 10.. somtimes he even tries for 15!. he is a joy to watch grow :) I got a new car! a gold 2012 Toyota Corolla which i love! and love my hubby for buying me :) i had another baby which unfortunately left me pretty chubby which is very resistant to coming off. Its definantly harder to lose the poundage after #2 im learning. But oh well my boys are worth the loose skin, stretch marks, and extra pounds, i mean we cant all be like Heidi Klum. After some serious rough patches i am pleased to say that me and Braden are doing really good and love eachother more than ever. its definantly true to say what doesnt kill you only makes you stronger and i am glad to have gone through the bad to get to the better. i better post some pictures now, because whats a fancy new blog update without some pictures to prove?

do i even know how to blog on this thing anymore?

I havent been on my blog in a really long time! its almost crazy to think it has been 6 whole months since i even posted a hello on here! (shame shame) Rhiot is now 19 months old and is starting to say full sentences! he is so dang smart! He is also now expecting a little brother! YUP i am 23 weeks pregnant with another little boy! between this new one, Rhiot, Braden and our MALE dog i am severly out numbered! Its a little scary to think of sometimes haha! im sure i will preservere! this pregnancy has been nothing like with Rhiot i was a lot sicker and have gained a lot less weight. i was a freakin chub with Rhiot! i am excited and very nervous to have two to take care of! i know it will be a big blessing and just as big a responsibility. We also just moved.... 100 yards down the road haha. anyway i will have to do some more catching up another time because its late.

youv'e had a birthday shout HOORAY!

Rhiot turned 1 on May 26th! He seems like such a big boy now and i can hardly believe that he is 1 year old already! I could have sworn in the early months that i was doomed to NEVER get a good nights rest and now we love our sleep so much we hardly ever wake up before 9! We had a party for him at the park which was really fun even though it was pretty windy :( all of his cousins came and he made out with some pretty awesome toys! His aunt Rikki made him a carnival cake and it was amazing! We are looking forward to every day we get to spend with you as you grow up Rhiot we love you sooooo much! Love Mom and Dad!

I am VERY happy to announce that on March 11th 2011 Braden Rhiot and I were sealed for time and ALL eternity in the snowflake temple!

It was such a beautiful day! We dresses Rhiot in a cute little white suit and when the temple worker brought him into the sealing room to be sealed to us he was asleep and soooo cute! UNFORTUNATELY he did not stay asleep and cried for the rest of the sealing, although it definantly did not take away from the spirit that we felt i think it is safe to say there was not a dry eye in the room. I am filled with joy having these two men in my life and am so happy to be with them forever!

Two days later i was able to speak in stake conference. Yeah there were like 3,000 people watching and listening to it AND an apostle was there (which only happens roughly every 30 years) It had been 36 for the Taylor stake. Needless to say i was pretty nervous! BUT safe to say i definantly lived through it and i think i did a darn good job and am very blessed to have been chosen to speak!

All in the midst of this Temple going and Conference speaking my grandpa died (my moms dad) he was only 64 and the cause of death is still unknown. We took a trip down to phoenix for his funeral and i sang at it. It was a really beautiful funeral and although i didnt know him very well i will still miss him.

BUT i cant leave my blog in a sad note. sooo.... Rhiots almost walking!! yup not even 10 months and he took 2 steps the other day! He is getting soooo big!

One year ago me and my husband were driving to a new years party in spanish fork Utah we were about to find out if we were going to have a little boy or a little girl in a few days. I was almost 18 weeks pregnant, not even half way. I was just barely starting to poke out there. I had a crappy job at a sandwich shop and we were struggling as newlyweds commonly do. We lived in a small basement apartment with people above us who partied all the time. I had no friends or family around. I was newly baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and had only been married for 5 short months. Its crazy that in just one short year so much can change.

We now have a bubbly 7 month old little BOY and i am so lucky that i get to be a stay at home mom, we live in a nice big beautiful house in the town where we both grew up with family and friends who love us and help us succeed in all that we do. I have now been a member of the church for about a year and a half and on February 4th my husband and i are going to the temple to make our family forever. I am so very blessed to have everything i have and am so very thankful that in just a year so much can change for the better!
