January: A Month I Won't Miss

January! It is almost over! And we survived . . .
  • Jill's first cold
  • Jill's first ear infection
  • Jill having diarrhea (and consequently a horrible diaper rash) for 3 1/2 weeks
  • Jill having a fever for 6 days
  • Jill cutting four teeth
  • Jill forgetting how to sleep for long periods of time (like at night)
  • Everyone getting sick

Some great things did happen in January though!
  • My dad had a birthday.
  • I got to see my parents.
  • Jeff's dad had a birthday.
  • Jill is now nine months old.
And one other milestone this month: I spoke in the evening adult session of stake conference. I am not sure whether to include that in the list of things I survived or list of great things that happened, because it was definitely a mix of both. I was very nervous about it, but I did enjoy writing the talk. My topic was sharing the gospel. At one point I had looked up too much and got lost in my place (because I write out my talks word for word) and ending up repeating myself, but hopefully I played it off as just emphasizing that point and no one was the wiser.


  1. mimi! i haven't talked to you in forever!! you bought a house- what? where have i been !? i need details! where, when are you moving in, fixer upper or move in ready? i'm sure your talk went well, you always did great in rs :)

  2. Sounds like a busy month! I'm glad you're all feeling better!

  3. Yay, you guys bought a house! Congratulations! Wow, don't you love months that are so full of crazy stuff (both good and bad). I didn't notice that you repeated yourself accidentally in your talk. It was a very good talk!

  4. congrats on the house! hopefully that will help with the baby sleeping issues. and scott said you gave a great talk -- i wish i could have been there too. :)

  5. Congrats on the house! I can't wait for pictures! :) I am glad you are all healthy and feeling better. A talk in Stake Conference?! That would definitely be one of my "surviving" things. I write my talks out word for word too! You are awesome.

  6. I take it the inspection went well. so excited for you and a house. YEA!!

  7. i am sure that everyone thought that it was a very important point. I am sure they hastily scribbled it into their notes that they were dutifully taking of your talk.

    Yay for good things happening, and bad things being over!

  8. I am sure your talk was wonderful. I would be so nervous to speak at stake conference, even if it was the evening session. Congrats on the house. Cant wait to see pictures.
