We accept the love we think we deserve.

Summer is Coming to an End.

Besides being busy with having new little niece. Cj and I have still been doing our thing. Going to RSL games, went to the Spanish Fork fair, hiking and biking. We went up to Deer Creek one Sunday and hung out at the little sandy beach. Trying to soak up summer before it's over. 
We will be heading out of our yearly road trip to California in a couple weeks. We can't wait to see all of our family! We definitely are in need of a little get away from Utah. We leave September 6th and we are counting down the days. Literally- I made a little chain countdown!

I fell in love with this sweet little bunny at the fair. I want a bunny!

 Deer Creek

I took Olive to a park one day to sit and read. This was her face the whole time. I guess she wasn't amused. She is so hard to please.

We love going to the farmer's market in Provo. They have some neat stuff.

Have I told you I ran a 5k?! My first race ever. Melissa and I ran from the Provo temple to the new Provo temple. The whole time she pushed me. I would start slowing down and she would be like "Don't slow down! You can do it!" She totally motivated me. I probably wouldn't have ran it unless I was with her. It was a lot of fun!

This is me bright and early ready to run! Haha

Before the race. Sam and Eli were on their scooters with us. Yeah, they totally beat us to the finish line.

After the race! We did it. I love Mel!

My mom and dad surprised me with being at the finish line! As I was running to the finish line I heard someone scream my name. I looked over and it was my mom cheering me on. What great parents I have.

Cj and Miss. Snooty.

We live in a beautiful place.

Family Photo's 2013

We got more of our photo's back that we had taken professionally. They turned out amazing! There are some of Olive that are really ridiculous. I am very pleased with how they turned out.

Isn't it weird how long Olive's tongue is??

Alena Marie Greer

Haley had baby girl on July 19th 2013! She was born at 4 pounds 8 ounces, 18 inches long. She was very tiny for her age, but she is completely healthy! Haley did great during delivery. It only took her 2 1/2 pushes and she was out. She was born at the Sandy hospital. Of course I had to work that day. Right when I got off work, Cj and I drove up to Sandy as soon as we could. We kept getting texts that Haley was dilating. We ran up to labor and delivery floor.  Right when we got off the elevator I saw my mom at the vending machine. I stepped off the elevator, and I looked down the hall and Tim opened the door and started waving us down to see the baby. So I darted down the hallway! I wanted to be the first one to see her. I ran in there and Haley was holding her, and she was so small and I couldn't believe that she just had a baby. So crazy! 

We have so much love for Alena, Laney, or I call her Lulu. She is perfect in every way. 

After she was born.

The day she got home.

Look at her hold Cj's finger. How does that not melt you heart?!? 

I love when they get milk faces!

Her first shopping trip to Target. She was a great little shopper!

The newborn clothes I bought her completely drowned her :( She's so tiny. But she is gaining weight.

I drove up one Saturday to Ogden to visit Lulu in her new home. She lives 83 miles away from me. It makes me so sad! 

I had to give her a bath while I was visiting.

 Laney spent the night at our house one night with Haley and Tim. She had a little blow out, so I washed her onesie. they left it, so I had to take a picture of how small it was next to Olive. She was in preemie clothes.

I picked up Haley and Laney on Friday morning so they could spend some time with us in Provo. Yeah, she was perfect. Cj and I went to Target and took her all by ourselves. Like she was our little baby. She slept the whole time! We were lucky.

She loves to eat from her bottle.

Uncle Cj and Lulu.

Sorry for the picture overload. We have been busy loving on our new little family member. Haley and Tim are doing great! Not on much sleep, but they are adjusting and being great parents. I'm so proud of Haley with her pregnancy, delivery and now taking care of a little baby. She is a good mom.
