4 Years

May 22, 2008

Wow! I cannot believe that it has been four years already I feel like I have been married to my been best friend for longer.  If you would of told me on May 22 of 2005 the day I graduated from Seminary that I would be getting married three years later on the same day.  I would of been shocked.  But instead on that date I drove to Mount Timpanogas got the feeling that I would be meeting my husband in the near future.  August 2, 2005 is the day i met Brandon and my life had changed.  Brandon went on a LDS mission I waited the 2 years.  After the waiting I became a Waite.  It has been a very wonderful 4 years and here is to another eternity.

Some things that has happened in the last 4 years of marriage:
  • We lived in Provo for a year and a half in two different apartments.
  • We lived in Pleasant Grove for two years and started our little family in Pleasant Grove.
  • We have two beautiful daughters Lexy and Zoey.
  • We bought a house!
  • We have been able to go through and still going through the trial of loosing our little Lexy and has made us stronger and hold on to each other.
  • We became parents to our little beautiful Zoey and are learning how to be parents daily.

two girls


I love being a mom to this little girl she taught me so much in such a short time.  Lexy taught me a mothers love the second I saw her.   Lexy will always be the oldest sibling and watch over her little sister.  I love her and I'm so grateful to have her as my daughter.

I love being a mom to Lexy's little sister Zoey!  Zoey is teaching me so much about how to be a mommy.  It is hard work but it is so worth it when you see the smiles and the coos at midnight or 4am.

i did it

going back... Part 2

I cried she started crying when I left and I had to leave her while she was crying but at least her daddy was the one taking care of her.  I got into the SUV and I cried as I left the house.  It was so hard to leave little miss Z.  Little miss Z has been everywhere with me since last June and on Saturday it was the first time I left her for more than 8 hours and it was hard.  I called hubby a lot and asked how she was doing and if he was doing okay with taking care of her.  It was nice to get away for a little while.  But I sure did miss her.  On Sunday going back to work was a little bit easier.  But on Monday when I went to work she was wide awake and smiling hubby told me its like a band aid you just have to peel it off fast and go.  I cried when I left again because she was awake and happy.  It makes going to work so much easier knowing that little miss Z is with her dad and I'm not taking her to a daycare.  I did set up going back to work a little easier I only worked for 3 days and than my weekend and than once I go back I will have to be going for 5 days in a row.  So I could ease my way back into a normal work week.  I love being able to spend time with her right now and cuddle her and not have to worry about getting ready to leave the house to go to work.  Instead today when daddy gets out of school for the day we will get to do somethings as a family and it makes me happy.

hopefully by next year I will be able to stay home and be with my little girl.  but who knows what the future has ahead for us.

going back...

I have had 11 weeks off of work and 10 of them have been spent spending time with my hubby, with little miss Zoey, family and friends.  We have had an adventure I have been learning how to the best mommy to this little girl everyday I learn something new.  I'm nervous about going back to work I have been on the midnight shift (9;45pm-6:15am) for two plus years.  I'm now going back and working from 1:30pm-10:00pm Thursday-Monday I have at least kept my same days off so that we can do family things on the weekend.  I have done this shift before I'm not nervous about that I'm nervous about meeting my new co-workers, meeting the individuals they are new to me.  I also am going to miss my midnight co-workers from Quail Run.  I also don't know how I'm going to do for 8+ hours without my little girl.  I have only stayed a couple of hours away from her.  I'm so happy that we don't have to pay anyone to take care of her and she will be with her daddy.  But I'm going to miss seeing her talk in the afternoons and the smiles she gives.

wish me luck!
