I smell Santa.....

So I really love this time of year. I reflect back on the past year and see all the blessings I have in my life. I don't remember what life was like before my kids. They are the sunshine in my soul. I just cant wait to see Maverick's little face on Christmas morning. He will be so excited. Probably more excited than he was to Santa at the mall. He wasn't actually scared of him, he just didn't want to sit on his lap. So I did with Maverick on mine. After sitting there for one sec I realized why he didn't want to sit there. It was the strangest thing but that Santa smelled like PICKLES! All I could think to myself was, "Hurry up and tell him what you want so Mommy can get out of here."
Anyway things around the Iverson household couldn't be any brighter. We are STILL enjoying Nephi being home full time....(still no Job) But we really aren't worried about it. My family is coming to visit tonight and I couldn't be happier about it. I miss them all so much. And as for that horrible birth announcement I made and spelled my own last name wrong on, well I didn't end up sending them out and made new ones. Well they are birth announcement/Christmas cards. I love how they turned out. The rest of the pics are the cutest kids you will ever see.
Hope everyone has a VERY Merry Christmas!!!

Life doesn't get any better than waking up to these faces!

A bit too long....

Its been a bit too long since I have updated this old thing. Life is crazy with two kids. However life couldn't be any better either. We are just chugging along taking every thing one day at a time. My post pardom has gotten so much better. I went to the doc and got on some medication and I have to say it saved my life. I feel so much better and can function more like myself. I think Nephi likes me better medicated, hahahahah. I feel for anyone who has struggled with post pardom, its real and it doesn't feel good. I was ashamed at first to admit that I needed help but looking back I know that was stupid because I feel so much better after reaching out. Anyway on to more fun things like the amazingly cute pictures of my little man Kanon. I took these a few weeks ago, I think they turned out great.

I also spelled my own last name wrong on this birth announcement I made. What an idiot!

All of my friends and I made matching new moon shirts and stood in line from nine at night until midnight to see New Moon. And let me tell you honey it was worth it. We had a fun time

we also had a couples New Moon dinner on Sat. night. Well Nephi is ANTI anything twilight so he stayed home with the kids and I went by myself.

These are all of my wonderful ward friends. We played an awsome New Moon game after dinner. It was alot of fun.
Well this wasnt the most in depth post but I thought it was time to put something. Until next time blogging world, enjoy this little piece of me...

Life is amazing!!

I'm having a really hard time adjusting to being a mom of two. I cant be two places at once and that's hard. The other morning I was nursing Kanon in the computer chair in my room when Maverick came in and laid his little head on my pillow. He looked at me with a face of, "mommy I really wish you would snuggle me right now". It ripped my heart out. I just sat there with tears rolling down my cheeks and told him I would snuggle when I was done. No one can prepare you for the way things change bringing other babies into the world. Its great and hard all at the same time. I'm adjusting though in my own way and time. I am struggling with a little bout of postpartum. I'm going to the doc in the morning to have him tell me that I'm normal and that everything will be ok. Nursing is alot harder this time around, but me and the nipples are both in it for the long hall so we are gettin by. Anyway not a very long post but thought I'd throw in a few more pics. My computer crashed so I wasn't able to edit any of these pics, but I think they turned out pretty stinkin cute.

Maverick loves to take whatever toy to bed with him that he has been playing with that day. This night was my guitar for guitar hero. I'm alittle ashamed to say that my sons favorite song to sing and dance to is Poison, "talk dirty to me"

I just love this pic of my mom and boys. It was so great having her stay with me

New baby...

One last pic of the belly

VERY VERY proud daddy

The rough start

Meeting big brother

LOVIN his Grandma

Outfit to go home in, alittle big, didnt think I was going to have such a little peanut

My little angel faces
Yes everyone I finally had my little bundle of joy. I went to my 38 week doc appointment and my fluid level was low. So I got induced the following morning. It was alot better experience this time compared to when I had Maverick. I was only in labor 6 1/2 hours, pushed four times and out popped a miracle. Kanon Crue Iverson was born Oct. 8th at 8:57p.m. He weighed 6lbs 1oz and was 19in long. He came into the world with a bang and within minutes had mommy stressing about him. His lungs were wet and he was having trouble breathing. He got rushed to the NICU and spent the first 6 hours of life there. Nephi was able to give him a blessing just before they took him, I felt so much comfort and peace watching him do so. It was a long 6 hour wait to see my baby but the second he was brought into my room it was all worth it. I'm so grateful that Heavenly father hears our prayers and in a still small voice lets us know he is there. We are all home now and couldn't love life any more. Maverick could not be any sweeter with his brother, he LOVES him. The new rules at the hospital doesnt allow visitors and no kids under 14 so He wasn't able to hold him until we got home. However my mom and Nephi brought Maverick to the hospital to have lunch with me and I got to show him the baby through the nursery. That was a fun experience. My mom was able to come and spend time with Maverick while I was in the hospital. I'm so happy she came, I feel closer to her now than I ever have before. She is a rock to me and I am so thankful for her. It was very hard to let her go home, but I look forward to her return in Dec. Thanks again mom, I love you so much.
So life in the Iverson home is at its fullest, we are livin life and lovin every min of it. More pics to post later

Happier times

After writing my last drepressing post I thought Id post something happier. Nephi and I had a little photoshoot in our living room. The main star.....MY BELLY! We had photos taken of my belly when I was preggo with Maverick and thought it would be fun to do again. Maverick looks cute, as always and I look like a whale. So not much has changed since the last photos I posted. ENJOY!!!!!!!
Anyway nothing much has changed, still no job and still living on faith. I guess thats how you grow.

Rockin my boat

So as many of you have heard, my best friend and loving husband lost his job last week. I have worried myself sick over the matter, I mean you can expect that when I'm about to have a baby in a matter of weeks. However, I have found a different kind of peace in my life at this time... I know that Heavenly Father is in control, I know he will not let us go through more than we can handle. I am falling deeper in love with my husband and son. I'm trying my best to be positive and give the situation to him every time I pray, knowing that I cant fix things myself. This baby coming is such a blessing in our lives, He is coming in just the time frame we need him. Does that mean I'm not worrying myself sick??? Ummmm NO and all of my friends and family would agree that I'm a worry wart. However its in the midst of storms that you find strange peace. I have friends that are so great, no one could ask for better. My ward is full of the best members. The friends I have made here truly my family not just my friends. They lift me in ways they have no idea. Thank you for that. My mom is a rock to me also, she always calls to check on me and I know her and my dad do their share of worrying. I'm so thankful for the power of the priesthood in my home and in my life. I'm thankful for the gospel and the temple, they bring my life so much peace. I truly wish I had something more positive and entertaining to post about, but for now this is my life as I know it. As for me physically I'm hanging in there with this pregnancy and continue to count down the days to meeting my little angel. Maverick continues to be the joy of my life, he is seriously one of the funniest kids I know. So thankfully his smile keeps me going. I pray that something good will come out of this chapter in our lives. As one of my favorite singers, Bob Marley put it in an all time great song, "please don't you rock my boat, cuz I don't want my boat to be rockin" That sums up how I feel, I hope my boat stops rockin soon and I can have a break from hard times.

A two year old....

Well I know that my son is the cutest kid I have ever seen, however it never fails that someone in public comments on that fact too. I cant help it, he just is. He is so full of life and the center of mine. I finally got around to taking his two year pictures. I think they turned out great. He was actually really good and it only took me 20 min. Its not so hard when your model is so darling. He is soooooo excited about being a big brother, He really loves babies and I know he will do well. Anyway, just a short little blog about my little man.

This one is so cute, he loves to say "nice" everytime he thinks something is cool. And Nephi has taught him to hold his hands up with the num one like touchdown!!!

I also thought I'd post our newest photo together, it was taken on the 4th of July. We try and take one every year in our red white and blue. Its not too bad considering I'm a huge preggo women. Thanks Amy for taking the picture.

Alot has been happening in the Iverson household. I have finished the babies nursery and I have to admit its pretty stinkin cute.Thankfully I have something like his room to keep my mind in a better place. This pregnancy has brought on a lot of unfamiliar feelings for me. My hormones have been going CrAzY!!! One day I'm happy the next I'm crying and Watch out NEPHI!! He has been my target for all my BAD mood swings. I feel like I'm going a little crazy. And to add to all that glory I fell the other day and jacked up my back and jerked my belly really good and had to rush to the doc to see if the baby was ok. THANKFULLY he is, and so am I but I am in alot of pain. I have to take it easy for the next few days which isn't easy for me. Oh wow did I just have another hormonal moment?? I really need to shape up if I'm ever going to convince Nephi to get me pregnant again, poor guy.

However through all of the changes that have come our way these last few months, I have this peace in my soul. I know that my father in aware of what we are going through at all times. I know that he doesn't let us go through more than we can handle. Thank goodness for that. I'm so grateful for all of the friends I have right now in my life. Without them, my strength might not be as great. I know that we were hand picked to be in the ward we are in and that the people we have come to love as family here are truly meant to be in our lives. I love where my life has ended up after all of the trials I have lived through. I'm so excited and scared to bring home this new little bundle of joy and start a new chapter in our lives. Ive never been so in love in my life, Nephi is my soul mate, my true best friend. Maverick is the whole reason my world turns and I cant wait to meet my little bun that is makin my oven so HOT!!! I miss not being able to blog as much, hopefully that will change soon. I'm taking Maverick's two year pictures today so maybe soon I can post them.

Chop this up to being another random post, filled with alot of random hormonal thoughts.

SO SO Lame...

Ok for all of you wondering why I haven't posted in awhile, its not because I don't have a million things to post about, or pictures. But We are struggling a little bit and have had the precious Internet turned off. Yes that's true, I had a going away party for my little friend the Internet and only get to have short visits with her while at friends houses. Its tragic. Hopefully soon we can get it back on and things will start looking up. Sad Sad day

My best friend

For fathers day we went on a little trip to Kanab Utah, to visit the Best Friends Animal sanctuary. It is a place that rescues animals and rehabilitates them. We saw a special about them on t.v. and thought it would be fun to go see. They house 500 dogs and 800 cats. Not including all the other crazy animals they have. Michael Vicks 20 pitbulls they took from his fighting ring are being rehabbed there too. Anyway, we didn't know you had to schedule a tour to see the dogs and cats close up so we just ended up taking the short tour on a van to see some of the place.

Waiting for the tour van, man we look good. LOL

Maverick loves to hug animals. This is the cutest pic of him hugging this bird statue.

I love this picture, not only is my hubby a hottie but he's holding my pride and joy

I'm so blessed to have Nephi in my life. He is everything I have ever wanted and more in a husband and daddy. He puts up with so much from me, being pregnant and all.(we wont go there) I'm thankful for the priesthood that he carries and the way it blesses our home. He is my BEST FREIND, My hunk of burning love, My night in shining armor and I hope that he had a great fathers day. I love you babe, thanks for everything you do for us.

A week of fun...

Maverick and I really needed a break from everyday life and wanted to go and do some playin. So we packed up and left sunny Hurricane and went to my parents in Santaquin. (where it rained on us all week) We sure enjoyed spending time with my family and friends. Although I didnt get pictures with everyone we visited I loved seeing all of you.

We went and sat on Grandma's horse, Pepper Jack. I didnt know how Maverick would react, I thought he might be affraid, but NO We couldnt get him off. He's a little cowboy at heart.

We also got to go and see one of my bestest friends, Jess. Her little girl Kaitlyn and Maverick are only 4 weeks apart, its always so fun to watch them play together.

I took some really cute pics at my nephews t-ball game, GO Caden

Another one of my bestest friends, Tami went through the temple to recieve her endouments. I am so proud of her, and felt so close to her in the temple. Im so thankful for the blessings that the temple brings into our lives.

Maverick with his cousins, minus two more boys. Im sad I didnt get any pics of my little brothers boys, Maybe next time

I was able to take some family pics for my older brother Brandon and his family. It started out being a great overcast day and turned into a hurricane. I hope the few pics I got, they will like, I sure do. I loved hanging out with them, I miss my family so much and it was fun watching Maverick play with his cousins.

And last but not least, yesterday when we got home we went and picked up our puppy, Ruger. The one Maverick got for his birthday. He could not be any cuter, and Rambo makes a really good big brother. I love the pic of Ruger laying on Rambo

If I survive potty traing with this puppy while Im pregnant, it will be a miracle!!!
