Wow. That's all I have to Say. Wow.

So, I wanted to let you know of the big explosion Sofia JUST did. I had my nursing pillow on my lap, and she was sitting on it. All of a sudden, she had that look on her face that makes her red and concentrated. Then I heard it (thank goodness it wasn't smelly). I looked down and it was dripping down the pillow (sorry Tia Mary) about to get on my couch! I screamed (which totally startled her), caught it with my hands (yes, my hands, gross). Don't judge me...I can wash my's harder to wash off my couch! I then run to the shower and drop my pillow in there splashing poop all over the tub (don't tell Jeff, he won't ever want to shower in there again). Can I just tell you that my darling little daughter was smiling the whole time while watching me? Well, then when I go to change her, I notice it all on the back side of MY pant leg. How did it get there? Double gross. I change her, and guess what? NOTHING is in the diaper!! I don't know how she did it...positioned herself so it would squirt out the side. Congrats, Sofia. Wow. Just wow.

Dear Mrs. Smith

I have had a student teacher for the past 7 weeks. This is my plea to her.

Dear Mrs. Smith,
I have come up with the top 5 reasons on why you should come back.
1.) When I brought the class in today and they saw your note, David yelled "whaaaaaaaaaa!"
2.) They knocked constantly while I was trying to finish up milking myself
3.) My kids said, "aren't we supposed to start our spelling test yet?" Oops.
4.) I had to grade the math test, treasures test, AND spelling test all by myself!!
5.) When I took them to lunch, Jaden said, "this is just weird having you stand in front of us." Ouch.

Therefore, come back. Westridge will never love you like Franklin does. A whole blog post dedicated to you. Convince you yet?

With love,
Mrs. Crane

PS. You may respond with a while blog post back to me...

Let's Get Away

Jeff planned a quick "let's get away" family trip to Salt Lake City (we can't go far with an infant). It was nice to be together as a family...including Heather and Eliot, because they are our only family up here.

Sofia's suitcase is a winner. People stared as they saw a 6'4 good-looking 26 year old man rolling it along. Thanks dad for carrying baby's stuff. Thanks Carmy and Sarah for buying it for her.

On Saturday before the Bliss came up, we strolled around SLC, wandering through stores. It was cold. When we got back, Sofia looked like that scene from Dumb and know, then one with dried buggers all down their face. It was gross. But look at this picture. Can we say Ensign magazine?

We stayed at the Marriott downtown and it had beautiful views of Temple Square. But Sofia's fav thing were the fluffy pillows. We got there and she staked her claim over the king size bed. Who could fight her.

Heather and Eliot joined us for the evening. We tried a new restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised. The Bluelemon is definitely somewhere we will return. It's an organic place with the best butternut squash soup (almost as good as Spark, Laura!)

They also joined us for a dip in the pool that night. Well, it took Jeff an hour to convince me to let our precious almost 4 month old go in to a germ infested public pool. I still get the creeps thinking I let her in. Oh well, she lived. We didn't have a pool diaper, so as ghetto parents, we tied a plastic bag around her diaper. It worked.

This suit is too big for her (6-9 month), but look how adorable she looks! And check out her legs. Loving them.

Heather would only go in if I went in. So, Heather didn't get to go in. Jeff knows that I don't like pools unless there is a hot Sun to tan my body. Why would I want my post baby body to get into a bathing suit if not necessary?

Does she look like me?

She loved the pool.

Don't you love it when babies get crazy eyes? These are Sofia's crazy eyes...

On the ride home, she got a little restless, so I jumped in the back seat with her. And ended up filming her. I love love love this little girl.

Sofia, we hope you loved our first weekend getaway with you.

Valentines Love

Dad and Sofia came home with the most beautiful bouquet of flowers. I think Sofia picked them out, and Dad paid for them. Good combo.

Sofia is still in a cradle, because she is so petite. She looks absolutely adorable in it. Thanks cousin Diego for letting us use your cradle. She also sleeps naked. Plus a diaper, because that would be a mess.

Love her.

I love picture for 3 reasons, and I am not embarrassed about them. 1. Her hair looks like a balding 40-year old mans. 2. It looks like she has a few chins here (even though she's pretty thin) 3. Her eyes look GORGEOUS! Still blue.

Sorry I blog constantly about Sofia. You would too if you were her mom.

Dear Dad

Dear Dad,
I know you have a big interview today with BYU. Just show them my picture and you'll get in for sure. I know you'll do great because you're really smart, and people really like you. I like you a lot. You make funny faces at me. You're the best dad in the world.
