Anyways I entered into a drawing yesterday for this sweet headband:
And when I went to check the results my name had been drawn! It made my whole day better seeing my name up on the screen!
The creator is a girl named Ariel whos blog I have been following for a while. She has the sweetest little girl named Serena whos just a few months older then Tate. She started making these headbands to keep her busy being a new stay at home mom, and she just opened an Etsy shop up...

At one month Tatum is working on holding her head up and making cute baby noises.

I put Tate in her crib for the first time today... she looked so small and sweet in that big old crib! She usually takes a looooong nap in the afternoons, but she only slept for 30 minutes in the crib. Hopefully this means she'll be super tired tonight and take her long shift then.
Cute cousins :-)

Poor baby has had a bad rash on her bum for a little over a week now :-( Desitin was not helping, so I called the Dr. and he said to get two special creams and use them, stop using wipes and just use wet paper towels, and soak her bum in a bath with baking soda 1-2 times a day. Too bad she HATES the water.
Greg has been SO busy with school and work and his calling in the branch, we feel like we never see each other now. Unless you count me looking at him while Im awake nursing 4 times a night. We picked up an OAT prep book the other day, something else to take up his time :-P
Im having a brain fart trying to come up with mutual activities for my Young Women. Anyone have any suggestions? Its hard because we only have two girls so we cant do anything that requires a big group, which most fun activities do.
P.s. Nicole Richie had her baby, finally. She named him Sparrow James Midnight Madden
Her daughter is Harlow Winter Kate Madden.
Greg and decided our names weren't as cool as the Maddens so we came up with some new names for our family:
Greg Blue Spruce Brandt
Daisy Thyme Dani Brandt
And Tatum Ruffles Adventure Brandt

Tatum and I had a leisurely morning at home waiting for Greg to get done with school and work. Becca and Lauren cameover with birthday soup and salad from Zupas, yuuuuumm! Then when G got home he took me to the Quicksilver store so I could get a birthday hoodie! Yay! I love it! He also took me to A&W for dinner and a root beer float, and then we rented 17 Again- so funny!
My mom and sister got to come visit us and meet Tate and they brought me this cute apron (since I am such an amazing chef) and new curtains that make my apartment look 10x better!We also hit the mall and got the cute jeans pictured above. I have been waiting so long to be able to fit into jeans again :-)We went to the new Texas Roadhouse in Lehi for my birthday dinner while they were here. Of course there are no pictures of the birthday girl there, but we had to get one of Tate and her Mimi and Great-Aunt Val!Then over Labor Day weekend my Dad and Bea came out for their visit! We had a fun "hike" up to Bridal Veil Falls, and then even ventured further up the path! There really wasn't much else to see, but it was good to get some exercise. And we wore the doggies out so they wouldn't be restless in their hotel room :-)
Dad took me to Barnes and Noble for some birthday books! I love bookstore shopping. I got a few new reads, including The Time Travelers Wife- which I am really excited to read but sort of wanted to see the movie first. I usually like the movie better if I see it before I know the real story from the book, but I dont think it will be out on video soon enough. And I will not be going to the theater anytime soon with a baby. I hate it when people do that.
I didn't get any pictures of their trip on my camera, but I know my Dad took about a million of his little grand baby! She's so cute he couldn't resist :-)
And here's a picture from today. She looks so comfortable, don't you think?
