Getting so big!!

I can't believe my little man is a month old! He is getting so big a lot faster than I thought. I didn't realize how big and different he looks until I looked back at his first days of life. Everyone told me they get big fast and to cherish every little moment, even the rough and hard ones, and I am. I don't want to forget any little moment with my sweet boy. This has been the best/hardest/tiring/ month of my life, but I wouldn't trade being a mother for any thing else. It is so rewarding knowing that Max needs me and relies on me to be there for him. I have so much love for that boy and I know he loves me. I absolutely love being his mom!

Memorial Day Weekend

This memorial day weekend has been quite the weekend. It started off with Erika coming into town on Friday! I love having my sister here. She stayed with Quin and I and was a huge help with Max. She changed lots of poopy diapers:)
Saturday, Erika and I went to lunch at Kneaders with her friends. It was fun seeing all of them. While at lunch Erika and I found out my grandpa Fletcher passed away. Such awful news, but so glad to know that he is not suffering from STUPID cancer anymore. Cancer is awful. We then hung out all afternoon with Bryson while my patents went to the temple. That night we went to dinner at Settobello in SLC and had some delicious pizza! We finished the night off by doing some shopping at City Creek. It's always so good spending time with family. Especially at times when you need their comfort and smiles the most.
Sunday, Erika and I went to my parents ward because my dad was called to be bishop! He is going to be so awesome. My dad is such a humble and spiritual man. I look up to him so much and I know so many people do as well.
Monday we finished such a roller coaster/emotional weekend by going up to Logan to visit my great grandparents graves and have a picnic with the Niederhauser gang. Later Quin, Max an I went with the Boardman family to visit Whitney's grave. Max got to meet mortal Whitney, although I know he was best friends with spirit Whit in heaven. So special.
Like I said, this weekend has been a roller coaster, but the best part of all is the reminder that families are forever:)

Max Whitney Boardman

Well...we had a baby! His name is (as you can see from the title) Max Whitney Boardman. He was born on April 27th 2012 at 9:49 pm. He weighed 6lbs 5oz and was 19.5 inches long. We are so madly in love with this guy! And how could you not be, look at how sweet and cute he is!
