Mom's visit and more

My mom came to visit us on the 23rd til the 30th. The first night she was here we played Bunco with the Kirtland Spouse Club. It was so much fun and I won the most buncos! I got a $50 gift card to The Elephant Bar. We also worked on Joy's room to put up some clothes in bins and separate neutral clothes from the girly ones in case our next baby is a boy. Kind of exciting that we won't be finding out the sex! Friday night we went to Girl's Night Out at Hard Rock Casino and Hotel. That was a lot of fun! We got two massages, a 10 minute relaxation, and some tinsel in our hair (which is still in mine). Also mom got my Mother's Day gift, an Orgami Owl necklace with a purple heart, a wing, and a J will be coming later. I have been wanting one so I am very excited she got one for me! Saturday Joshua and I went to a Renaissance Fair while mom stayed home. It was fun to see.

One of the neat pictures that Joshua took.

Mom left on Tues and we had a great visit with her. Yesterday I went to PWOC (Protestant Woman Of the Chapel). It was awesome to see everyone. Have I mentioned that we have a great support system here? Because we do!!

Joshua and I have started Couch to 5k. I have been wanting to be able to run so we are finally doing it. Last night was week 1 day 1. I thought I wasn't going to make it. But he motivated me (more like yelling, haha) and I did not stop running when I had to run. Luckily right now you only run for 60 seconds but it's the longest 60 seconds!

As promised here are pictures of Joy! She is so beautiful and I am so lucky to have these pictures.

She had so much hair!

The hospital had this ring and gave it to us after they were done.

In fertility news I started my second month of birth control today, so at the end of this month I get to schedule my hysteroscopy and start my ovulation pills.
Until next time :)
