All Smiles :)

Noah had his first round of shots on Wednesday. He did so good!! He now weighs 12 lbs, and is 23 inches long. He basically gained 5 lbs and grew 3 inches all in two months. He has blue, BLUE eyes and the Dr. is pretty sure they are here to stay. It's kinda weird because both Tyler and I have brown eyes. He sleeps through the night and only wakes up between 4 and 5 to eat and then goes right back to sleep. He loves the swing and loves to lay under the baby gym and kick and grab the little hanging toys. He seriously gets cuter every single day, but I guess that's no surprise :) He is now smiling all the time and we love it. We spend a lot of time just looking at him.

  • It snowed last week...more expected this week. WHY?!?!?!?!?
  • Shots for Noah on Wednesday.
  • We bought a treadmill. I have ran every single day. My hips, quads, and calves are on fire. I keep forgetting to stretch. STUPID! Tyler and I both went running tonight. we sit with red, sweaty faces as our son stares at us like we are weirdies. lol. It's so hard to keep going, but the more I run, the more motivated I become.
  • I was running yesterday with my ipod when all of a sudden this song came on. Seriously, I was dying. I remember my sisters Kim and Mandy doing their drill team routine to it back in the day. hahaha.
  • Schools out for the summer for Tyler on Friday. SING HALLELUJAH!!!
  • Noah has been basically sleeping through the night for about a month now. SO AWESOME. The beginning was so so so so hard, but now it's pretty much the best :)
  • Idol finale on Wednesday. I know, I know, this year sucked...BUT we are loyal fans and can't wait
  • I am contemplating cutting my hair....I am so torn. Every time I decide to do it, I have a good hair day. However, I only dried my hair once this week because I seriously have no time.
  • Jersey Shore is coming baaaaaaaaaaaackkkk. Don't judge.
  • If you are looking for some new recipes, please click here. This is my favorite recipe website. I'm not even kidding, IT'S THE BOMB DIGGITY! I seriously have made Chicken Parmesan, General Tso's chicken, Orange Chicken, Pizza, Bread, and even the exact Cafe Rio Pork salad from this blog. It's awesome and super easy.

The Devine Curse

Growing up, my sisters and I would blame all the sucky things in life on the "Devine Curse". As most of you know, our maiden name is Devine, so it just kinda flowed. Lately I have been slapped in the face with an abundance of this heavenly curse. I won't go into all the different instances but here's the kicker...

My sis Bev wanted to send me a birthday card, so she texted me and asked for my address. I gave it to her and she said she'd throw my passport in there since she had found it with her important docs. (It must have gotten mixed up in her things when we lived together in college). Anywho, friday rolls around and I go to get my mail. Amongst the bills, I see a pink birthday card envelope. I open it up and see a cute "sister" birthday card. Assuming Bev forgot to put the passport in I shoot her a text and say, "Thanks for the birthday card, did you forget to put my passport in?" And this is where the curse comes into full effect....

My phone rings, it's Bev:

Bev: Trudi, are you kidding?
Trudi: No. Did you forget to put it in?
B: No, I remember putting it in right outside the post office before I sealed it.
T: Uh....are you sure?
B: Yeah. Trudi, are you joking?
T: No.
B: I know I didn't forget cuz I put it in the middle of the birthday card, right beside the Ross (one of my fav stores) giftcard.
T: (slightly tearing up)....UH, what Ross girftcard?

Then I notice that the side of the pretty pink envelope is neatly sliced.

We hang up and I have a breakdown and text Tyler. "Can you call me? Slightly urgent..."

5 mins phone rings. I would put my conversation to Tyler on here but all I remember is crying and not making sense. hahaha

Bottomline, some tool bag stole my Irish passport and Ross giftcard. I called the post office here and the post master told me that some machine in a warehouse probably opened the envelope. Uh, welcome to the real moron. My passport is an Irish one so I knew my next step was to call the Irish Consolate. Conveniently, my laptop cord blew up the night before so my lovely sister Mandy got me the number. They told me I have to file a postal inspector report, police report and then pay for a new one. AWESOME! I mean, it's not like I'm going anywhere but still. And, I suppose the giftcard isn't the priority, but still... And, so help me if someone steals and uses my identity I will freak. I don't know if the mail theft occurred here or in California where it was sent from. BUT, whoever you are, I am coming after you!

ALSO, I may or may not have written a letter to the newspaper regarding a very touchy subject and it may or may not have gotten published. I kinda feel famous. Famous, with no passport. UGH!!!!!!!!!!

Meet the newest member!!!

Noah was blessed on Sunday by his dad. Tyler's mom made his blessing outfit. It fit perfectly and we LOVED it!!! Noah looked so adorable and did so well. We left his rockstar pacifier in during the blessing to make sure he didn't scream.... When it fell out, our bishop kindly threw it back in before Noah noticed. lol. Some of both of our families were able to make it and we enjoyed spending time with all of them. It was such a special day! We are still loving Noah more and more each day ;) Here are some pics.....enjoy!

Here's the famous pacifier!

He has his dads feet ;)

Soooooooooo over this photo shoot :(

Happy Baby :)
