Thank you guys so much for the congratulations! Seriously. When I hadn't posted for a month, I was bummed because I thought I had for sure lost all my blog friends! I am finally feeling like I am on the uphill...FINALLY. So blogging will commence regularly soon. This is the announcement that we used for Facebook. I couldn't believe how much Jax had grown up since the last time I told him to "hold the sign" in a picture. He knew exactly what to do! I can't believe in October, he will have a sibling. A tiny part of me feels a little guilty. We will talk to him about the "baby" and he points to himself, jamming his finger into his cheek and replies, "bayyybeee." Yes, Jax, YOU will always be our baby! This morning he woke up and hour earlier than normal (and no, I am not saying what time it was!). I picked him up out of his crib and set him in our bed, letting him dig into my open Chapstick or do whatever occupied him for five more minutes. Then I started thinking, Ali, you need to be able to handle this. You are going to have a newborn and a two year old. Get it together.
Last night McKay and I, for the very first time, started planning our own family trip. Just us three. In our (almost three) years of marriage, we have never gone on a trip- just us three. And guess where we are going? The sunny, relaxing, lovely..................UTAH. But seriously, it would truly be our #1 place to go right now. The food. The shopping. The FRIENDS. (we could say that last one a million times). Most of our friends are in Utah and we miss them. Have I said before that we have no friends here? Washington has made us losers. We seriously HAVE NO FRIENDS. We are using McKay's accumulated vacation days and we still have to figure out a car to drive. Last night we were sitting down together looking at calendars and rental car places. Aren't we so grown up? ha!
Are any of you in Utah?!

Jax did this while I was typing. In case you can't tell, that is bananas and peanut butter mushed into the carpet.
