My new Do!

I'm posting about my new do.. so that it won't be such a shocker for when everyone see's me later. I love doing a new change, but I hate the first day that people see you and all the attention that you get. I get real nervous on those kind of days. So enjoy the pictures of my new look.

Cory and I have been trying to figure out what to do with my hair. I've been wanting to color it for a long time, but couldn't because I was pregnant and we didn't want to risk anything. So Cory bought me two hair magazines and we went to town for the search of a new look. We both decided to be daring and have me do the Kherington Payne Look from Fame.

I was just going to do the cut but Cory wants me to try going as Blonde as this actress/dancer. So in a couple of days or weeks I am going to go completely blonde like Kherington. But for now I will just be getting use to my new do.

My friend Jen was such a good sport and did my hair for me. She was so nervous but I think she did an awesome job. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Josie has a cold

I have been trying really hard to be a good mom and to keep Josie away from sickly people and their germs. Well... She is sick. a week after she was born she started to sound somewhat congested, and it has just lingered. I figured it was because I had a cold after she was born. But then this week she started sounding more and more congested and started having a cough. Well we took her into the doctor yesterday after a bad night of her coughing and sounding awful. He says that it is probably a cold but could easily turn into RSV since that is going around. He told us what to watch for. Just in case we need to bring her back into the doctors.

There is basically nothing we can do to give her to help her start feeling better. So we bought her a cool mist humidifier, and my sister in law told me that when her kids were congested she would hold them all night to help elevate their kid and have all the junk flow down. well Cory and I like our sleep way too much so we put her bouncer chair in her crib and have strapped her in. She really likes sleeping slightly elevated and I think the humidifier is starting to help. She still sounds pretty congested but she sounds better when I'm feeding her rather than her fighting to eat and breath. I hope she gets feeling better soon. It breaks my heart every time I hear her coughing and sounding so full of junk.

1 month old!

I officially have a 1 month old baby! I don't know why, but I am relieved that we have made it this far. I get so nervous when people are around her with a runny nose, or are coughing but say that they are not sick. I get so nervous each night when she sleeps 5 hours straight. But everyday I can honestly say that I look at her, and I think to myself, How did I get to be so lucky to have her?

Joslyn Sayre 1 month old!

Josie's first photo shoot!

When Josie was just 1 week old we decided to get some professional pictures of our baby girl and some family pictures for the first time. I looked around and there was a lot of great photographers to choose from but we decided to go with Andrea Sponeburgh. she did such a great job and was so patient with us. She let me not only take pictures of Josie, but family pictures, and grandmother pictures. So here is her website if you want to check her out:


And here are just some of the pictures. enjoy!

Being a new mom

This morning I woke up to do my morning feeding for Joslyn. She sounded a little congested, but was eating like crazy. She started choking a little so me being the nervous mom that I am.. I lifted her up and started patting her back, and she projected mothers milk all over me, the chair, the wood floor, everything but her. Cory came running in to save the day and wiped up everything.

But I was thinking today. All I do now is stay in my pj's all day and feed, burp, and change diapers. Maybe I'm getting a little cabin fever, but I'm really not liking the stage that I am in. I'm too tiny to wear most of my prego clothes, but way too big to fit in my before clothes. So the only thing that fits right now is pj's. The reason why i was thinking about this, is because I was thinking of of all my sister in laws, and friends who are stay at home moms. They don't stay in their pj's all day. They always look perfect and put together. So even though I'm not at the size I would like to be right now, I've decided that I'm going to try and put make up on and do my hair every day even if I don't leave the house.

Even though I am complaining a bit about the monotony of life and my appearance right now, I really do love being a mom. I love just holding my baby girl in my arms and watching her sleep. I love having this time with my husband and watching us both grow up as parents together. I love our little girl.
