Cheyenne and Nate

Dear little Kashe,

I wanted to write you a letter… Today was a very special day... Wednesday, April 23 Cheyenne was sealed in the Timpanogos Temple to Nathan Tuttle. Cheyenne loves you so much! She has had much difficulty and trials. And had such a hard time parting with you. But I am so grateful that Cheyenne and her family have become a part of our family.

The temple is so sweet… And now Cheyenne can be with her sweetheart Nathan for eternity. Kashe I have always been so impressed with you… Ever since you were a little baby you have loved the temple. Maybe it has something to do with the special picture Cheyenne gave you when you were sealed to us in the Draper Temple. In fact, your favorite song is "I love to see the temple". 

When daddy and I left you at Aunt Natalie's, to go to Cheyenne's Seiling… You were screaming and crying and said that you wanted to go. One day you will get to go to the temple yourself and marry a companion of your choice for eternity. We will all be there for you.

Cheyenne is such a great example to you!! She loves you so much. And wants you to be happy. She is so proud of you and loves giving you hugs and kisses. She even likes bribing you with candy.

Daddy and I love you so much too! What a special little boy you are that has come into our life because of your special birth mom, Cheyenne.

2 months

My little Kai guy is 2 months old!!! He's getting soooo big. He is no longer in newborn clothes. I live him growing up...but it's also sad to say bye bye to the newborn stage. 

He eats 4oz every 3-4 hours. He eats around midnight, then 4am, then 7a. He smiles and coo's. We started giving him a little breast milk. Hopefully it's a little healthier for him. He is a great sleeper in his crib at night. 

This is the little face I see when I look over at him on my shoulder. I love it!!! So awake and precious.

Growing up!

My baby is growing up!! I am always excited for every stage...but I can't help being sad at times when little babies grow up. 

Kai guy is getting so big! It was probably around 6 1/2 weeks old that he started smiling… And a couple of times it seems like he cooed. I just couldn't get him to repeat it all the time. So I didn't necessarily call it a milestone. But he pretty consistently doesn't now (where he smiles). 

We all just adore him… It has been so sweet and calming to have a little baby in our home. His little spirit is so sweet :-) He is so relax and chill… He had a little tummy trouble around four weeks. Where he started to get gassy and a little bit fussy. So we switched to the purple target brand… And finally about three weeks later he's doing really well! He is a very patient baby.

His eyes are darkening up. There are days where they look like the color of steel blue. And days where they look like they will definitely turn brown. His hair is still long and cute… But his receding hairline is looking more prominent. So, we may shave it soon. His skin has had a little bit of acne. But it seeming to clear up a little bit. 

He no longer fits in newborn clothes. And he is in number 1 to 2 diapers. He eats every 3 to 4 hours. And sleeps really well for the night and wakes up just to eat. He eats about 4 ounces.

I'm almost done with his nursery. It has just taken me a while… It's harder to get things done with three boys…and I have been sick for the past month.
