Archie's Birth

There really are no words to describe the feelings I had the moment Archer was born.  I was so overcome with emotion and couldn't believe that we helped bring this beautiful baby into the world.

My sweet Mom told me a few weeks before Archie arrived that it's the most incredible experience to have your own child.  When she had her first child, she remembered thinking, "why didn't someone tell me how amazing this is?!" Then she told me that she realized that you cannot really describe this to anyone!

We are so incredibly blessed to have such amazing family and friends that were there to support us.  My cute parents were there the entire night waiting for our little Archie to come.  I'm so grateful for them and for Andy's parents.  I love them all so much.

We were also lucky to have our doula, Lesli, in the room with us taking pictures of this incredibly special time.

Archer Andrew Boyer

On Tuesday, February 1st we welcomed our beautiful baby boy into the world!  He arrived at 1:11 pm weighing 7 pounds 15 ounces and 20 inches long.  

We love you Archie and are so glad your finally here!

Bush and Boyer Family Shower

My cute mother-in-law MarRae, and sister-in-law Michelle, and my Mom and sisters threw a wonderful shower for both the Bush Family and Boyer Family and friends. Amy hosted it at her house and it was awesome! I loved everything from the darling decorations and yummy food to the fun onesie activity and nice advice book.

It was so nice of them to do that and meant so much to me. I can't believe how much they spoiled us! MarRae gave us 2 incredible blankets (she made herself), lots of cute outfits, bath stuff and a darling teddy bear and blankie for Archie! Michelle gave me a darling carseat cover...that she made herself!

My awesome sisters/mom generously gave me the stroller we registered for and my mom surprised me with an amazing diaper bag she made that I absolutely love. We received tons of nice gifts from the rest of the family.  It was so nice of everyone to come.  I am so grateful for such wonderful family members that love and support us! We don't know what we would do without them. Archie is one spoiled little man!

Friend Baby Shower

Karadie, Olivia and Michelle hosted a baby shower for me at Red Butte Cafe. It was so fun to see all my cute friends. Megan Williams, Danielle, Nelsy and Megn Rae all made it too. It was so great to hear stories and get advice from some of them that are already amazing moms! I'm so lucky to have such great friends.

Perry Baby Shower

The cute Hale girls threw a wonderful Baby Shower for me. Everything was so amazing! They made hot chocolate, bagel sandwiches and had fruit and veggies to eat. They also made a darling Advice Book and everyone got to decorate a clothes hanger for Archie's closet. I absolutely loved it!

Family Ward Baby Shower

My parent's ward (Joyce Pettingill) threw me and Niki Bogle a Double Baby Shower back in the beginning of January. It was so nice and everyone was so thoughtful and generous! It was great to see so many of the faces that I grew up with. We were definitely spoiled!

Christmas Day 2010

We had such a wonderful Christmas this year! We woke up and made Hot Chocolate and Blueberry Muffins and listened to Roger Whitaker (tradition!) while we opened presents. This is the last year that it will be just Andy and I on Christmas morning. Although I really enjoy sharing Christmas morning with just us, it will be really fun to share it with our baby boy!

Andy surprised me (as you can see in the last picture...I had no idea) with an iPad! I totally freaked out.

After we opened all our presents we went to the Bushes and talked to Jimmy and then went over to the Boyer's to eat dinner and open more presents!

It was such a great Christmas!
