My other little fish!


You've seen Stone swimming on here this summer. Now it's Emerson's turn! My two year old is floaty-less now. I do keep her in floaties for my own sanity's sake (let's face it, if needs be, a 9 month pregnant belly is not going to be swimming or running at lightning speeds no matter how hard I try). But today, she was out to prove that she does not need them. She jumped in, surfaced, and swam to the steps. I need to get updated videos to show her improvement, but for now, here is a video taken about a month ago when she was getting the hang of it.


And this one was taken around the same time:

EIGHT years! It's so hard to believe that we have been married EIGHT years (August 14). Time flies. I really do feel like it was just yesterday we tied the knot; yet, in the past 8 years, SO much has happened. I started my sophomore year at BYU, Cliff started college at BYU, we were poor newlyweds in a basement apartment that I loved, we both graduated from BYU, moved from Provo to Salt Lake, I had a career in Advertising, Stone came along, we moved to Lubbock, I got to continue my advertising career for the same company (but this time from home), Cliff attended law school, Emerson came along, Cliff graduated law school, I started my photography business, we moved to Longview, Cliff passed the bar (and coincidentally, I submitted my resignation that day {it was getting rough doing it with 2 kids at home}), we bought our first house, Cliff became a lawyer, and as of today,
**Cliff became somewhat the boss at his firm (why yes, I'll call it quite a promotion)**...while his boss left for Harvard.

So here is to EIGHT wonderful years with the man of my dreams. He seriously makes me laugh every single day. He's an incredible father. He's romantic. He's hot. 'nuff said.

LOVE YOU, babe!
