Jettsetter Ady

Adyson traveled to visit Grandpa and Grandma Kandell in Ohio and had a wonderful time. We are not sure who had more fun, Adyson or her Grandparents? We have all sorts of new pictures from her Ohio trip in our gallery!

We are amazed at how wonderful it is to travel with her. She is less than 3 months old and has flown to LA and back and has also been all the way across country to ohio and she loves flying. You should see the look people give us when they see they have the unfortunate event of sitting next to a baby on the plane. It is awesome because Hailey looks right at them and says “Oh dont worry she never cries!” They are probably thinking oh ya right, but before long they are all wanting to play with her and can’t believe how good she really is.

Probably the best part about our trip to Ohio was to see Grandpa and Grandma Kandell. Grandma Kandell got to take a morning walk with Adyson and give her a warm bath in the sink! We were all amazed at how much fun Grandpa Jim had with Ady as well. I think she was fascinated with his hairy arms! Anyway she defintely loved being held by Grandpa.

She is growing so fast! She is holding her own head up very well as you can see in almost all the new pictures, she loves “tummy time” and she amazingly sleeps all the way through the night now. Oh and on the 2nd of Oct she actually rolled on her own from her stomach to her back! She did it two times in a row. I think she gets her physical abilities from her dad! Ha Ha her mom is actually in much better shape than me!

Speaking of Jetsetting, we are all flying to Florida very soon to visit Mickey Mouse! Yes that is right, we are going to Disney World. The exciting part is that Hailey and I are traveling down by ourselves with Ady and all of Hailey’s brothers and sisters. There are 4 of them going with us! Hailey’s parents will be meeeting up with us a couple days into the trip.

Ady Goes to the Doctor

Our family has really enjoyed the last 10 weeks. Everything is measured in weeks right now since Adyson is the center of all we do. She had her 2 month Dr. visit and got 4 shots in one visit! Needless to say it wasn’t all that fun. She is the 60th percentile for her weight and weighs 11 lbs 10 oz. She was in the 50th percentile for her length and is 22 inches long. If you want to see how much she has grown go check out her latest pics in our gallery!

Hailey has started getting really excited about losing all of pregnancy weight. I don’t really think she needs to lose any but she is all gung ho and has started working out like crazy with a personal trainer. She has been so sore she can barely walk down the stairs! She of course loves doing everything she can with Adyson. It seems no matter where we are or what we are doing, Hailey always has Ady dressed all up and pretty. I must admit we do have a beautiful little baby.

I have been super busy with work for the past 5 months! After leaving my job at New Freedom Mortgage last year, I started a new mortgage company with a new partner and it has been a great opportunity. The only draw back is that my business partner has an office that we use in Heber City, Utah which requires me to commute about 25 minutes each way. I know I know for most people this is normal, but remember my old office was about 30 seconds away!

Well, we sure hope you all enjoy the site as much as we do and hope you shoot us emails when you can and please keep in touch. We still enjoy traveling and if you haven’t talked to us about our travel agent hook up, then you need to. We are going to Disney World in a month with the Smoot Family and were able to get a full 50% off for all of us. Until the next website update, have fun!
