I shall name a few of the adventures we got to experience in our five day travels:
-go to Kneader's (thanks to Susan). I love that place and have craved it every day since. Alas, we live in the Ozarks.
-Thanksgiving Point for the wedding dinner. Yummy food and the little boy Max that Josh ran around with, trying to trip waiters and almost succeeding on several occasions.
-Timpanogos Temple for the wedding. Beautiful. The sealer was so sweet and so soft spoken. I'm not sure which was my favorite part, the sealer telling them to kiss again or the old man behind us that kept practically yelling "I can't hear a darn thing that man is saying, can't he speak louder?"
-The gorgeous reception with Italian sodas, chocolate covered strawberries (one of which Josh ate all of, stem and everything), fun dancing and every good thing.
-The air plane ride with the 3 year old, Ethan, that sat in front of us and turned around to talk to Josh every few minutes. When everyone was deboarding, his mom carried him off and he yelled back to us "IT WAS NICE TO MEEEEEEET YOU!" I have never laughed so hard on a plane.
-Waking up every morning to animal crackers all over the floor and Josh calling someone else on my phone at 5 AM.
-Coldstone. I had mint ice cream with gummy bears, an absolute favorite.
-Too much traffic for my liking. When did Provo/Orem get so big?
-We got to drive an Escalade the whole time we were there. It was sweet. As Tyson says "Who cares if you make a wrong turn and look stupid? You are driving an Escalade!"
Anyways, we didn't take too many pictures, so I shall have to get some from Kage and Court. But Josh is crying now and wants to get out of his crib, surprise, surprise. Moral of the story: It was a great trip, nice to spend time with my brother and his wife, and really nice to have five complete days with Tyson.

Yesterday, Tyson came home from his church meetings and we were talking and I don't know what happened, suddenly I was sobbing and I felt completely depressed and hopeless. I don't even think I was having a bad day and I still don't really know what I was crying for. But luckily Tyson is super patient with me and makes me laugh. He almost convinced me we didn't need to go to church, but alas, my conscience is my worst enemy. :) And today I snapped at cute little Josh like 5 times. I never get mad at the little guy and suddenly he is getting yelled at (okay, not really yelled at, more like lectured at, but that stinks for a 15 month old).
And I have to tell you, when Tyson was talking to me yesterday I was complaining that I am not the "happy Cami" anymore. He said that I hadn't been that Cami since I got pregnant. He meant when I got pregnant with Josh because I haven't stopped worrying since, but I thought he meant this pregnancy and so I said something to the affect that this baby isn't a good one. I feel bad because poor little kid, it isn't like it is his or her fault, it just happens. Oh well, hopefully my emotions will temper out eventually. It is hard to be glum too long with this bubbly little creature living with me. He is chirping at the birds out his window right now. I think he talks their language.
I am really excited to finally go to the doctor in two weeks and make sure everything is okay. I kept postponing calling them and making an appointment, but I finally got up the nerve and so yes, I am excited.
P.S.- "According to my accumulations" (as Ammon used to say), the baby is officially 11 weeks today. :)

What is your favorite flower(s)? yellow roses and pansies (they have such cute little faces)
What is your favorite sport(s)? miniture golf, is that a sport?
What is your favorite food? chocolate covered strawberries or m&m milkshakes
What is your favorite movie? Pride and Prejudice, the newer one
Who is your favorite birth sister? I don't know, they both spoil me...
Babies or toddlers? toddlers, mostly because I have one, and he is so much more fun than he used to be. But I am excited for the new baby, but I'm afraid I will think he or she is boring compared to Josh
city clothes, kinda city clothes, or naturey clothes? (this is totally my favorite question) I don't know, usually it is just "naturey" clothes because I take that as comfortable clothes, however, I do like to dress up, not super city, but kinda city. ;)
I tag anyone who is willing to take on this awesome tag, especially KJ and Bunk.

I am so thankful for Tyson, he is so good to me. I used to worry that our happiness would quickly go away when we got married, but it hasn't. It is true he can be a turkey at times and there are lots of things trying to keep us from being happy and in love, but I have never been more in love with him than I am today. I still call him "hunny bunches" and I still get so excited when I hear him coming up the steps. I still get all giddy inside when he hugs me and I still laugh when he kisses me (although we still haven't figured out why I laugh). There is no one I would rather spend time with than him.
The wedding ring Tyson gave me is very much like the one above. The middle diamond is huge and gorgeous compared to the other two. I would stare at this ring for hours when I got it, and often find myself watching the sparkles reflected in the sun. It has always reminded me of eternity and our marriage. Eternity because it is round and circles never end. And the three diamonds remind me of how our marriage needs to be. The large diamond in the middle is the Lord, it is higher, prettier, far more radiant than the other two. And the other two represent Tyson and me. We are still sparkly and beautiful, but much smaller. However, with the three of them together, it is gorgeous and whole and perfect. It reminds me that with the Lord, our marriage can be gorgeous and perfect, far better than it would be without Him. He is how we found each other, He is the reason I had faith to marry someone I knew so little, it is because of Him and His atonement that Tyson and I can work out our differences and heal our arguments or "discussions" as Tyson calls them. :) The Lord is everything.
Life can be hard, and a lot of marriages end unhappily. But if we do our part and put the Lord first, trying our best to become like Him and then putting our spouse second, then we will be happy, no matter the challenges of this life. Anyways, I would just like to say that I am thankful to be married and to such a wonderful man.

So for a few weeks now Josh has been spinning when we sing (especially popcorn popping and give said the little stream) or if music is on. However, catching it on film has been nigh unto impossible. But at last, I did it, and as you can see at the end he caught me. :)
Then this is Josh wearing Tyson's coat. He looks like he is dressed in a space suit, and it looks so much like pictures of Tyson when he was that age, it is weird.
This is from Valentine's Day when we watched our neighbor's kids. It was really fun and this is the only photo I have of all 3 of them that isn't too blurry. Of course, Josh is showing his bottom, but what can you do?

So my little dude man is learning way too much, way too fast. He runs, everywhere, it is kind of like a little jog, but he can get pretty fast when he is in trouble. :) He can reach the countertops, doorknobs, basically all things I wish he couldn't. He just learned to spin in circles, which he does non-stop unless I turn the camera on and then he stops. He folds his arms when we say prayer, he signs "more" for everything. Let's see, more means: please, more, food, pick me up, daddy play with me, i think i'm bored. Pretty much hilarious.
Anyways though, he really is awake, so I must go. He is NOT happy. :)
If there are any I have forgotten, I am so sorry! Have a very merry un-birthday everyone!
