BUMP!

Ashleigh:

How long have you and DH been together? Care to share a wedding photo?

What's the best thing about being a mommy to little boys?

Have you and DH given any thought about having more children after Truett comes?

It'll be 8 years in December, counting from our first kiss. We've been married for 6 1/2 yrs.

I love how sweet he is, particularly to me Greyson is absolutely a wild and crazy little monster but he still wants to cuddle and give me lots of love. He'll be playing monsters, cars, or heros one minute but still want to bake with me-especially muffins

Have you and DH given any thought about having more children after Truett comes?
Yes, we have... We actually just talked about this yesterday. He is leaning towards being done and getting a vasectomy, as I dont do well on hormonal bc. But we've wanted a little girl. Ive felt for years like there is one waiting, and as much as Ive never wanted to have more than 2 kids, I just dont know yet. He thinks we'll have our hands full after this one arrives, and we may. He said yesterday that if we are meant to have a girl, it'll happen with or without a vasectomy or any other BC. I agree, it would happen either way if it was meant to be, but Im not ready to take matters into our own hands like that just yet... SO.... Im not sure yet

I am the oldest of 3, 6 years between each of us. He has a half sister who is a few years younger and also has 3 step siblings.

Are you closer to your mum or dad?
Im pretty close with both, honestly. Im a bit of a daddys girl, though We have a special relationship. But I dont know if Im actually closer to one over the other.

What part of Utah are you in? (I grew up in Cache Valley and lived in SLC for years...)

What kind of neighborhood?

Are you in a house or an apartment?

I live in Salt Lake. We rent a house in a neighborhood we lovingly call the Sugarhood, in between the ghetto (not really, a bit exaggerated) and the more upscale Sugarhouse.

Ah, so you'd know what I mean if I said I live by the community college.

The corner of 21st and 11th? I did notice last week they had started some foundation, maybe.

Completely! I spent many hours at that campus... did plays and TA'd for film classes. And you're totally right about the ghetto part... although I understand it used to be worse when that the hang out and pick up spot for hookers!

lol yes... It mellowed out for quite a while. We also had a West Jordan cop living across the street until recently. Earlier this year our car was stolen, and stolen cars and a bike this weekend have been ditched on our street. Those motels are too close and bring in sketchy behavior. I call the cops without a second thought, they actually encouraged me to when anything doesnt look right. I really miss our cop neighbor

Where did you go on your honeymoon?
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Have you always been pretty spiritual? What type of religion were you raised in?

We took a 45 minute flight to Vegas, he'd never been

I am not sure. I like Utah, but its a bit conservative for me. It was a culture shock when I moved here at 18. I sometimes miss the simplicity of living in a smaller city.

Have you always been pretty spiritual? What type of religion were you raised in?
Yes, I think I have. The key word being spiritual, rather than religious. I was raised LDS (mormon) but my family was more... casual about it. I did go to and graduate from early morning seminary through high school. I am not active now, but my spiritual foundation does come from my experiences with the church.

I want to see some baby pics of Greyson!

How do you think he's going to react to baby Truett? Does he seem ready and excited to become a big brother or do you think it'll be a hard adjustment for him?

I think it'll be an adjustment, but he is excited already. My cousin was living with us until mid July, she had her son in May. That was a good warm up for him. He is very helpful and independent so I think he will want to do a lot for me. He talks about baby Truett and tells him goodnight before bed

Here are come baby pictures!!
This was just after he was born and they put him on my chest and wiped him up there













His first birthday

How are you the news about Truett these days? Are you excited to meet him? (I am! )

You love coffee...how are doing with that? I admit I still drink it in small amounts all day What is your fav kind? Regular coffee, espresso, cappuccino, etc? Favorite brands? God, coffee is great stuff!

He is not in a shop, he's actually not done any for a while. Focus has been on other things. He is good though, and if he didnt love his job working at the olympic park so much, he'd pursue it more.

Oh coffee... I do love it so much. I still drink it every day, just try not to go overboard. My favorite is a local roaster called Cafe Ibis. My favorite style is espresso or latte. Lately I have a cup from my french press each morning with a different flavor of creamer-I LOVE the holiday flavors!

I am mostly good with the downs stuff. I'll feel a little better after my appt next week and I get confirmation that he is growing well. It may just be the place Im in this week, but Im freaking out more about just having another baby than I am about the specific challenges we may face. The things I would be anxious about either way. I am excited, I had a dream the other night with my husband holding him

Ok, pictures.... Here are a couple of my favorites of Greyson
