Friday Letters

Dear Blog-Land,
I'm like the worst girlfriend ever. I don't call, I don't write, I don't come around...I understand if you want to break up.

Your guilt-ridden friend

Dear Danielle,
I've been meaning to respond to your comment about how life is with three boys. I think it's safe to assume that my lack of response can sort of serve AS a response, in this instance (or, in other words, it's busy--so busy I don't have time to do much else). But don't worry--it's also full of awesome, I promise.


P.S. Haven't you had that baby yet? (I'm sure this is one of your favorite sayings right now)
P.P.S. I super love that it says "that's what she said" when you comment. I know it's been this way forever, but still...love it.

Dear Kyle-man,
Thank you for being such a good helper. I can't even count the number of times that I ask you to "go get this" or "go find that" or "help Lucas with this." I love that you love Matthew so much, even if I do have to tell you to get out of his face eleventy billion times a day. Also, thank you for telling me at least once a day that I don't have a fat belly anymore. It does wonders for my vanity.


Dear Lukie,
When did you stop being my baby?!?! It seems like you aged a TON since we brought Matthew home. It makes me happy that (for the most part) you're not jealous of Matthew and that he's the only person that you will actually give a kiss to. Now if we could only work on your 2 AM bed-crashing...


Dear Matthew,
I can't believe it's been three weeks already! You're such a sweet little man. Even though it costs me valuable sleep time, I love rocking you in the early morning, when everything is quiet and you're content and milk-drunk. I love that you recognize my voice and calm down when you hear me talk to you. And, even though it keeps me from getting things done during the day, I love that you want to be held all.the.time. Thank you for making me feel like the most important person in your world.


Dear Moby wrap,
Thank you for being so awesome. My baby loves you, and it's because of you that my house isn't a total and complete disaster.

A faithful user of you

Dear Utah Weather,
Thank you for being remarkably agreeable for this time of year. It's made my life so much easier to be able to take the boys outside and keep the stir-crazy at bay.

Dear Spider that just crawled across my desk,
You should have stayed outside. As soon as you enter my house, your life is forfeit.

The squisher of you

Dear smart phone,
Your internet surfing capabilities have saved my life. I spend approximately 95% of my time sitting and feeding a baby these days, and you help me pass the time.

Dearest Husband,
I love you. I know you've been on "big boy duty" a lot these days because Matthew wants to eat 24/7, and I know they can get rambunctious and frustrating, but I know that they love spending time with you more than practically anything. Thank you for being a hands-on daddy. Also, thank you for still thinking I'm attractive when my wardrobe consists mainly of cookie pants and baggy shirts, I smell like sour milk, and I go days without brushing my hair.

Love always,
Your wife

Dear Universe,
Having three kids is easier than I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong--it's still hard. We still have a lot to learn. However, it's also exponentially more rewarding than I expected, especially when I see how much my boys all love each other.

A happy mom of 3

P.S. We're not going to be ready for #4 anytime soon, so don't get any crazy ideas.

Your last P.S. totally made me laugh!! Maybe we should have told that to the universe/Heavenly Father after we had Hunter! Even though it can get pretty crazy with two babies so close together I wouldn't trade it for the world!
Your boys are just SOOO cute!! You must be one proud Momma!

that's what she said...

Dear Jessica,

I feel seriously special to make it on your blog. Like I might blog that I made it on your blog. Or, maybe I'll just think it. ;)

My 'that's what she' name on here makes me giggle every time. Still.

Glad to know you're surviving 3 kids. I'm nervous, but excited and beyond impatient at the moment. Especially since there's no way my OB can induce me early this time around and that makes me not very happy. Currently you can find me lifting lots of heavy objects, running laps at the park (which hurt something fierce), and attempting to convince my Delivery Nurse friend to meet me in the hospital parking lot and just break my water yet. None of it is working. So, nope. I haven't had that baby yet. ;) But I'm reeeaaaaalllly hoping for this week. I.AM.READY! Aside from packing the hospital bag or cleaning my house bc you know if I do that then it REALLY won't happen anytime soon. lol.
