Daxton Bryce Sherwood

What a totally crazy couple of days! I can't even express how glad i am to be home with my new little love. He is precious and i hope that you call can meet him soon. I apologize for taking so long to post, but we were in the hospital a little longer than anticipated with some fevers and finally got to come home yesterday for Christmas! It was one to remember for sure. We are home, happy, and trying to make adjustments to this new life, which was already proven to be challenging! Here are some pictures for your enjoyment of his room, my last days of being pregnant, and our little buddy!

39 Weeks

Daxton's Room. Landon worked so hard on everything in his room. We are still waiting on a rocking chair and some other things, but this is about it and i LOVE IT!

Welcome to the world Daxton! Born December 23, 2009 @ 7:16 PM, 7 lbs. 1 ounce, 20 inches long. Dark hair??? We don't know where he got that, big beautiful eyes, full lips, long chicken legs and NO butt! We love him!

The American Fork Hospital was amazing! Everybody was so wonderful and kind. I didn't get to hold Daxton after he was born for a couple of hours (i had a fever of 103 and had to be on oxygen for a while and he had a fever too) and they brough him back to my room in this stocking that some volunteers made. It was SO cute.
I love my men. Landon has been more amazing that i could ever imagine and seeing him with our baby just melts me.

Daxton meeting his cousins Ella and Maddie for the first time! Ella didn't quite know what to do, but Maddie is already loving the older cousin role and just kept whispering over and over in his ear, "It's okay, it's okay, it's okay." It was pretty sweet. He loved his soft velvety hair and also kept rubbing her cheek on it. She is pretty excited to have him after the long wait.

Well, we feel more blessed than ever this year. It has been a year of miracles for our family. Merry Christmas everybody and hope it was just as wonderful!

So, i am pretty sure that i have the awesomest friends and sisters in the universe. This post comes a little late, not suprising for me. My sisters and Ashley threw me a great baby shower and i feel super spoiled and grateful that they are all so flippin awesome.

Melinda, a life long friend, came all the way from Boise without her kids and hubby to visit! I love you Melly. :) It was so special to have you be there.

Aren't camera's supposed to only add 5 pounds??? Maybe it is the sweater i am wearing. Note to self: Never wear it again. Why does everybody else in the picture look so skinny though? Hmmmmm.

Yes Ashley, it does look like you have a glass eye. It is not just your imagination or your computer screen playing tricks on you. Thanks for leaving these awesome pics on my camera. I knew i could put them to use.

This is Sabrina, Ashley and I at Lindsey's wedding. We are all old roomies from back in the day and i love them sooooooo much. We are all pregnant too and about 10 weeks apart. (11,21,and 31 weeks)

Here is the gorgeous bride, Lyns. If you are reading this, I am SOOOOO happy for you! you deserved the greatest guy in the world and i am so glad that you found him. You are gorgeous... call me.

A little side note, my mom couldn't come because she had been exposed to the swine flu the night before. It was so kind of her to make the sacrifice for the better good. She never ended up getting sick which is a little stinky, but i am so grateful that she did that so all of us chubbies and kids wouldn't get sick. Love you mom. I am also really sad that i didn't get any pictures with my sisters and AWESOME in laws. I am so grateful for them and all they have done for us.

Just call me chubby....

I am getting big. I see other girls with about the same due date as me and I want to go home and cry myself to sleep. For once in my life I am not loving being 5'1... there just aint much room for a baby! Don't mind the awesome double chin I am growing.....

28 Weeks

And.... Landon is 28!!! SO old. We had a great bday party with some friends and family. The kids (North's and Maddie) seriously swarmed around him when he was opening his gifts. They are so cute. Not to mention the North kids spent most of their day making him the cutest homeade gift: halloween ghosts out of tissue and tape, sunday adds glued to envelopes, a little pumpkin, and one piece of gum. Now that's what I call thoughtful!
I sure love my babe.... he's the best! Happy Birthday darlin

Landon in all his bday garb. So cute.

Wife of the Year!

What am I????????? Anybody know??

Here I am hung on the wall... Rex is my name (thanks Brock!) and I am an Oryx.

So, Landon hunted this animal way back in January 2008 and we just got it back over Labor Day. Let me just say.... I have been secretly dreading this day for a long time. I never thought that I would be the wife that let my husband hang things (aka. dead animal heads) on my brand new walls in my beautiful new home. I should get a prize for being wife of the year because I think that I am pretty awesome. :) Not only did I let him hang this, but he has a whole hunting room.... and I have a laundry room. Lucky me!

Oh, and an Oryx is an animal from Africa that was brought over to the White Sands Missle Range in New Mexico to see if they would flourish. They did and now you can draw a once in a lifetime tag for them and Landon did. They really are beautiful animals and the taxadermist (sp???) did a great job. Come over and see it anytime! Maddie my niece informed me tonight that he is really cute.

Happy birthday honey. No more animals pretty please.

Em and Ren's Wedding

The little love birds tied the knot a couple of weeks ago. You couldn't match two people together better... two peas in a pod! Their wedding was seriously SO beautiful (Emily has always been pretty spoiled:). Here are some pics of this year's great event. Make sure to check out Noelle's blog for more (i think). She took lots of great pics.

Thank goodness they were nice enough to use the flowers to hide my new chubbiness
There were SO many bridesmaids and groomsmen... holy cow. Good thing we LOVE them.
The pics below are all the reception in Twin. I really didn't get that many great shots, but it was SO beautiful.

TROUBLE...... yes they were!

Failed to Mention

I believe that I have failed to mention one little tiny thing...................................



having a BOY!!!!!!

Yeah, for some reason I felt anxiety about posting that, but so glad it's finally out there! I am about 18 weeks and due.... you'll never guess.... on Christmas Day. Boy, have the stars just aligned for us! Landon and I are so so so (times a million) excited. Thanks especially to all those who hung in there with us during these past couple of years, you mean the world to us and this little guy will have so many people to love and love him back. Here is a picture from my ultrasound today. This may be the only time you get to see the package so enjoy!

me love...


I don't usually post stuff like this (well i actually usually don't post at all), but i heard about this and had to share. I don't know if many people have heard about Jon Schmidt, but he is a piano player and i have always LOVED him. I guess this is like the highest rated video ever on youtube. Plus i love Taylor Swift and Coldplay. It's kinda long, but SO good! WATCH!

Look who we met!!!!!

MEGAN JOY!!!! It's amazing how giggly and ridiculous a person can become when put in the face of a celebrity :) I won't even try to replay the conversation for you... it was to embarassing and Noelle and i laughed the whole way home. So worth it though...... you only live once right?

Yeah, i won't even talk about how big of a SLACKER i am..... it's scary and totally not worth it.

ANYWAY, i had an awesome weekend with gals from the olden days! Ashley and i have stayed in touch, but i totally haven't with Brittney, and it was about time. She just had a baby so we found that it was a good excuse to go to Twin and have a good ol visit! By the way... you are adorable Brightyn, gonna look just like your pretty mamma. And it was SOOOOOO good to see you Britt.. we love you! Ash, i am so glad that you came and stayed. Miss you!
P.S. Yes, in case you were wondering i am totally aware that i have a huge forehead. hehe

Next subject.... SLEDDING! We can acutally sled in our own backyard and we couldn't resist it anymore. Zak, Noelle, and Emrie came over and we just sledded our little tushies off!


Hmmm, what else? Oh yeah.. Christmas. Wasn't that like months ago? Yeah, it was. Oops. We had a grand ol time between the Jensen's and the Sherwoods. Here are just a couple of out going ons.

TRADITIONS!I'm confused???? Who is who? :) It is my litle brother Cole and sister Emily. Who knew a boy could be so beautiful!

Delicious.... M&M's for breakfast.

Too much.?? Yeah, i think so. And it is a rule that we have to open the one by one. It took like all day. Spoiled mama. Isn't that everyboy's dream? A car with a big red bow... nice.

I actually feel really bad that i didn't get ANY pictures of our trip to New Mexico. We love you guys!


WARNING: blog braggggggggg

I just have to give my sister Noelle some credit. She took some pictures of Landon and I for our Christmas cards and they turned out SO good. She is seriously talented! Let me know if you ever need a photographer! These are just some of my favs. Thanks Noellibelli

Any favs? I still need to blow some up and can't decide!
