Maycee Elizabeth, 12/22/2010

Here is our cute little Maycee Elizabeth! she couldn't wait to join our family and came 2 weeks early. She was 5 lbs. 15 oz. and 19 1/2 inch. This meant she was 1.5 lbs heavier and 2 inches taller than Cayley. She fits in Preemie clothes which I love and hopefully we can get at least 1-2 more weeks in Preemie everything. I was planning on having a C-section anyways ( back to back) but I actually went into labor so that was "Fun" (not!). She was really close to being born on Tim's brother, Don's, birthday but she was 6 minutes too late, darn that paperwork! Oh well, she now has her own birthdate of December 22, 2010. Sandwiched between Don and me. We came home after 3 days (should have stayed the extra day to get the good meds and one on one attention but oh well) so we could be home for Christmas and to see Tim's family before they all went back to their homes. We love having her and Cayley loves holding her (even though it is only for about 30 seconds sat a time).

Well, I will work on getting more pictures off my phone and I will try to keep you updated more than 2X a year. Hope everyone had a great Holiday, I know we did.

I love this picture and the colors. This was from out trip to Washington to visit Jenn, Adam, and Collin. We had fun but it was wet.

Cayley picked out the swim suit and the goggles.

Cayley at the splash pad with our neighbors and friends: Daisy, Dreyson, Zach, Ashley, and Zach and Ashley's friends (can't remember their names).

So it's been a while

I don't have pictures right now but I am at least going to say something. This year has been great. We have started school again, we had a family reunion in Logan, we have played lots of games including our new favorite DOMINION, visited Canada for a week, done a little camping, I was in charge of Girls Camp for my ward, Went to Texas for a school conference and got to see the 6th Floor Museum where JFK was shot, moved back home with Tim's parents, I am coaching Cross country for the 3rd year, I helped with Track in the Spring (I get to video record the finishes and post individual times for the sprints), and dealt with morning sickness (lasted about 12 weeks but gone now...phew!)and we found out we are having another girl.

This is a glimpse of what we have done at least since about March. I will try to get some pictures up soon.

Oh yeah, now Jeff and Cristy are both at BYU and we can visit them and they can visit us. Now 3 of the 6 Valenza's are in Utah (majority since Jenn is in WA and the parents are in CA) I guess that means they all need to come to Utah for vacation more often.

Cayley didn't like being on someone elses shoulders this particular morning. AnnMarie, it's nothing against you. She warmed up eventually.

Cayley showing off her new monkey backpack/leash with Tigger strapped in front. We used to make fun of people who put their kids on leashes but now I know what they were preventing.hehe.Aren't toddlers fun?

Me and Cayley showing off the new camera. Aren't we two cute girls in hoodies?

Cayley's B-Day 2009

Happy 2nd birthday cayley! This is one of the presents Cayley got from her grandparents and parents this year. She loves to play on her slide. Everytime we go into the back yard and she sees it she wants to run over to it and play. Thanks again Grandma and Grandpa Valenza for the gift.

Spring Break

Well, did Cayley and I have a blast? yes we did (but we missed daddy). Cayley and I went to Virginia Beach, Virginia to visit my Aunt Maria, Uncle Mike, Timmy and Suzie, and dogs Baylee, Maggie and Izzy. We were able to celebrate Cayley and Suzie's birthdays on Sunday. Cayley got lots of cute clothes for summer and the cute book 10 little ladybugs.

We got to go to the beach and run in the water (even though it was freezing), but Cayley loved it. We are not sure that Maggie knows how to swim but she tried to jump in a little ways but then she came back out.

We went shopping for Cayley and bought her 5 new outfits using a christmas gift card, from Childrens place for summer so future pictures will have her in these new outfits.

We went walking on the boardwalk at least 2 times a day and on one day, we walked the mall and then a huge chunk of the boardwalk for a total of 15,042 steps! It was so fun. We got to see a huge sculpture of Neptune.

We also went to the Virginia Aquarium. This was fun and Cayley loved it. We got to touch Sting Ray's and a Horseshoe Crab. We got to see the Seals eating and Otters. Cayley loved the big fish and crabs and lobsters. She kept looking for Nemo but this aquarium only had local sea life. There was a 65 year old sea turtle. We also got a picture inside of jaws. We got to see 3 different types of sharks.
