As a side note, when I was growing up I used to love holding any baby I could get my hands on. I was always disappointed when the baby wanted their mom again. I used to reassure myself thinking that one day I would be a mom and be a baby’s favorite. As it turns out, June loves to go to other people and when I reach for her she shakes her head no and laughs.

We've been on the go the last few weeks and I do not have much to show for our last few weeks besides for a few iPhone pictures. It has been snowy in Colorado, but I got a break from it when I went to California to see my family. June and I had a great time. She loves all the fun things she gets to do at my parents' house. Below are a few pictures of June and what she is into right now.
June loves holding hands
She loves hats, necklaces, headbands, or anything to accessorize

On our visit we made sure to go to brunch at Sundance. For some reason I never went in college. What was I thinking? It was delicious and the mountains were beautiful. June didn't appreciate it as much as Souplantation, but I think she had too many snacks before we got there. All she wanted to eat were the cookies.

Halloween weekend June and I went out to
to meet up with my mom and two of my
sisters. I haven't had much of a reason to go back to Utah since there is now a
Cafe Rio in California and one close to where we live, but my mom thought it
would be fun to meet up for the Women in Business conference (http://marriottschool.byu.edu/conferences/wibc/)
they were starting at BYU. It was the first year and it was great. I enjoyed it
way more than I expected and we all left inspired by all the different life
stories. I also got to see Elise and her two girls as well as Megan's
sister-in-laws Alison and Andrea. It was fun to see how much BYU has changed. I
remember when I went to my freshman year of college I only knew a few people at
the school and it was always strange walking around campus and not
knowing anyone. I was always so happy when I ran into someone I knew. By the
end of my college days it was hard to not spot a familiar face when on campus.
It's a good reminder since moving to Utah
and feeling anonymous once again. We had a great time and June
loved seeing her aunts and grandma. Colorado

We’ve been in our own place for a few weeks now and we really love it. We are close to Washington Park or Wash Park as the locals like to say. There are tons of other young families. We can walk to restaurants, libraries, parks, and it is really safe. We also really liked watching the leaves change. The weather hasn’t been too bad yet, but I'm sure I will be in shock when the snow hits. June loves going on walks in her stroller now because we see people with their dogs on every corner. She was not much of a fan of walks before. It was nice to live somewhere a little more urban coming from Los Angeles. I hope that we get a chance to get to know Denver well.

We went to Rascal Flatts Saturday night with Murray and Melissa. We had a great time. It was so very Denver of us. I have a feeling I will be hearing a lot more country music now. In college (pre-iPod days) when I was running all the time I used to listen to country because they played it on the radio. I can remember running with tears streaming down my face because of the sweet stories and songs. I might be too easy of a sell though . . . lots of rappers have also brought me to tears singing about their moms.

We made it out to Denver. My mom, June, and I drove out my car together with an overnight stop in Utah. Our drive was beautiful and June did pretty well in the car. Michael is working at Comfort Dental in Highlands Ranch. We have been busy trying to figure out the areas while staying at Leah’s. June has been loving the girls as well as all their toys. We have narrowed our search down to south Denver, but there are still a lot of options to choose from. It’s a little overwhelming. Here's June enjoying pizza night with her cousins.

June has been loving Haley's old collection of beanie babies at my parents' house. We pulled down a bunch of them from the attic and June is just crazy about them. The first morning after we got them down my mom had her playing with them up in her room. My mom went to bring her down for breakfast and June cried like she had been seriously injured. Oh the injustice of playtime being cut short.

On Saturday we went with Megan and Evan to find out what they were having. June loved waiting in her director's chair while they did the ultrasound. We were super excited to find out that they are having a girl! June will finally have a buddy from my side of the family. Megan and Evan are going to be great parents and we are so excited for them.
