Just a little about us...
Robert and I met in Orem, Utah in the singles ward. I had been living there for about 6 months going to Cosmetology school. I never really saw Robert around or at church because he was working graveyards at the Stouffer's factory in Springville. Robert quit in October of 2010, and that was around the time that I officially met him. After we met, we saw eachother at FHE, church, and at a couple of game nights. He had definitely caught my attention.
One night, my friend Leah and I were sitting in the hot tub, and I remember looking at her and asking if she was into Robert. I remember her saying "Nah. Why?" and I said "I think I'm going to go after him...". I can still remember the look on her face. She was so excited and she didn't waste anytime hooking us up. She arranged for him to go with us to free pie night at Village Inn and then have just him and I go over to his place to watch a movie. I was nervous, excited, anxious, and at the same time so calm about getting to know him more.
We got to his apartment and decided to watch Avatar. At some point I had fallen asleep (I'm famous for doing that), but I woke up just in time for the end. When it was over, we sat there and just talked. About anything and everything. It was so easy to talk to him. It felt like I had known him forever and we were just catching up. We literally stayed up all night talking, then we went to Ihop for breakfast. I can still remember that he got french toast and I got pumpkin praline pancakes. :)
And the rest is pretty much history. We were inseperable. I would go to school, come home and spend the rest of the night with him. He was all that I talked about at school. I'm sure I drove my friends nuts. :) I knew after that first night that he was the man I was going to spend my eternities with. It was scary that I knew so fast, but I could not wait.
We took things pretty fast compared to most people, but I never had a doubt in my mind. We officially dated for about 3 and a half weeks, got engaged on December 2nd, 2010, and we were sealed for time and all eternity on March 17th, 2011 in the Denver Colorado Temple. It was such a beautiful day and everything went perfectly.
Our wedding day:
The first week of August we found out that I was pregnant. It was so bittersweet. I was terrified, but so excited. We took two at home tests then went to the doctor's to have another test done. They were all positive. We told all of our family right away and everyone was so excited. Our little bundle of joy was due on April 18th, 2012.
We then moved Back to Orem so that Robert could go back to school in September. We moved into an older four-plex that had it's issues, but we made it home. We lived there from September until April of 2012.
On April 11th, we welcomed Tyson James to the world. He's now 2 months old (Where those two months went, I don't know), and he is SUCH a joy in our lives. He already has a very funny personality and he makes us laugh everyday. I feel so spoiled sometimes because he's such a good baby. He's already sleeping through the night (I'm talking 9pm to 6:30am!!!) and he smile's and talk's all the time. He's very content. I'll have to post another blog sometime focusing just on him.
