We went to a minor league baseball game on saturday night. The rivercats were our team and i have to say they stink! The end score was 17- 0....(zero being us)we were on the edge of our seats wondering who was going to win the whole time! :) Maya slept through half of it under a bunch of blankets and then was pretty happy for the second half. We went with our friends Drew and Mindy, it was awesome to hang out with them. The best part was the fireworks at the end. Maya was crying before that but as soon as they started she stopped and stared for the whole show. As soon as they were over-she was crying again. We had a great time though-can't wait to go to a giants game now!

We were so lucky to catch this smile on camera! This is Ryans best friend Drew who is holding her. I took Maya to him to take a quick picture and she was frowning when I started to take the picture. She gave this huge smile as I took it and by the time I looked at her she was frowning again! What a cutie she is. So now we just show this picture to Drew's dates and tell them how he charms babies! ;)

Ryan is the best dad ever! I was excited to see him with maya because he is an only child and never really been around babies before. I envisioned that the first time he would hold her he might be a little awkward or not really sure what to do with her. I was totally wrong! I think he was more calm with her than I was at the beginning! He was so good with her and could get her to calm down when I sometimes couldn't.

I know it has been a few months since then, but this was honestly one of my favorite birthdays ever. Why? My husband made it so special for me and it was great to spend some quality time for him before the baby came. If you cant tell from the picture I am very pregnant there- I went into labor the next day. I really wanted to go out to eat so we went to Carinos (my favorite restaurant next to Olive Garden) I got a pasta dish that had bacon cheese and tomatoes in it-it was amazing. My only frustration was that I was so pregnant I really couldn't eat that much. :)

It has been so nice to no longer be pregnant and be able to move about freely as I want to. I would say the biggest thing I missed while being pregnant is exercising. Early in my pregnancy I had morning sickness too bad to do anything....walking for 15 minutes was hard enough for me. I waited to exercise until after my 6 week appointment to make sure everything was ok. Everything checked out well and I bought a Tae Bo DVD and luckily there is a small gym in our complex so it is pretty convenient to work out. I only wish it was open in the evening since that is my favorite time to exercise. (I hate exercising in the mornings)

It sounds pathetic, but if any of you have a baby that is grouchy like mine is-you will understand. At almost two months old we finally went to church together as a family. Before that Ryan would go to our ward and I would go to sacrament meeting in the next one while he watched the baby at home. Luckily she slept almost the whole time and things went so much better than expected. Thank goodness for mothers lounges though, those things are awesome! It felt so good to be at church as family again. I had missed it so much. I love relief society and I got to go to half of it. (until she got hungry)

So I start a blog and then I dont write on it for another month. I read my cousin Caitlins blog today and it inspired me to be more consistent if I get the chance. It has never been so difficult to get things accomplished as it has been in the last 6 weeks of my life. Maya was so calm when she first came home from the hospital, didn't mind when we washed her hair, didn't even mind when we changed her diaper-she only cried for about 5 second when she got her first shot! So I thought to myself. Wow, we have a calm baby! this is going to be so great. So it was for the first 2 1/2 weeks. But things changed overnight. All of a sudden she wouldnt sleep unless she was being held (we are talking 4 hour naps here!) and if I dared try to set her down, she would scream and scream and not calm down unless I held her. I figured it was just going to last a day or two, maybe she was just needy? But it never stopped.....it just got worse. She cried and cried and cried and her sleep got worse and she got to be more and more gassy. By the time ryan would get home in the evening I didn't even want to hold her anymore because I was so so frustrated. One can only take a baby screaming in there ear for so many hours.

Like I said in the previous post, our little sweetheart Maya Kristiina Vasso is finally here and we have had so much fun with her. I used to make fun of new parents and how I swear they take a picture of there child's every move. Now I realize I am no different! Here she is a few minutes old. Everything with the birth went well. I was in labor for 45 hours total but I still had to be induced because the contractions wouldn't come quicker than 5-7 min. on a regular basis. They induced me after 43 hours of labor and two long sleepless nights. I was so ready for her to come. It didn't take long for the medicine to kick in and within 30-45 min. I was having contractions every 3 minutes or so. Finally the pain got bad enough that I wanted an epidural after about 3 hours. I was dilated to a 5 at this point and I can say I was pretty desperate for some medication. The anesthesiologist had a hard time putting it in (I had pure back labor and was having a hard time getting lose enough for them to put it in the right spot). After about 40 min it was in and as it started to kick in, I realized that epidural's are one of the greatest things on this earth!

People have been after me for a year now to start a blog, and now I am finally getting around to it. Right now we are living in Sacramento, CA and Ryan is doing summer sales for pest control. We will be here until the end of September and then we go back to Cedar City where my husband has school. Luckily I get to be a stay at home mom with our beautiful daughter Maya ( I will blog more about her later). It has been really fun to live in California for the summer and I love how green everything is. The weather has been great as well and our complex has a pool and a hot tub, so it has been really fun.
