Cali Rae Riewerts

Google Blogger...meet Cali Rae Riewerts. (7lbs 10oz). This go around things were a little different for delivery. We rocked it C-Section style and it was a lot different than a normal delivery. With all the craziness of major surgery, I was still blown away at the miracle of life and Teresa and I were overcome by emotion as we met our new daughter. There were no complications and Cali received a clean bill of health! Recovery for Teresa is going well and she is powering through the recovery phase. Rachel couldn't be more thrilled for her new baby sister and she is stepping into her new role with ease. I think the only thing that could be a little bothersome is that Cali has her nights and days flipped so when people ask us if we are getting any sleep, the answer is now always "NO!" (Rachel has nights and days correct so our sleep wasn't disrupted as much...I know, we were spoiled) Everything is awesome and our joy is again full...time now to get back into some sense of normalcy...

A Utah 4th of July

For the 4th this year we ventured off to UT and hung out with family. Little did we know that UT does the 4th of July RIGHT! It seemed like every city had it's own thing going on. We hung out in Riverton and hit up the Riverton Days events. We paid money to the carnies to try thier games and go on carnie rides....Rachel loved the rides especially the ones that went "high in the sky". Thanks to all the fam for letting us crash thier houses and to all of Rachel's cousins that gave her a TON of attention. She actualy cried today because she wanted to see her cousins but she couldn't ;( Here are some pics from the weekend.

We just returned home from a quick trip to SoCal. It was Teresa's annual work party/dinner so we had work stuff one day and the rest we spent with family/friends in Simi Valley and HB. I of course managed to throw in a late night Harbor House run with the guys and a stop at TK Burger the next day. Teresa ate ALL the golden spoon she could and now has millions and millions of Active Cultures in her body. The AVP tournament was this past weekend in HB and we even got down to support Casey Patterson on Friday for a little bit. Rachel loved the "bolleyball" and I already have her on a bump, set, spike routine as of last night.

Sushi with the Jagard Family

Rachel's first Sushi...she liked the sauce, rice and crab meat. Wasn't a fan of the Seaweed wrap holding it all together.

Grandma Jagard rented a Jump house for Teresa's party

She loved it and was in that thing for almost 5 hours straight...

Andy and Meri bought a dog...it was Rachel's favorite thing, next to the bounce house.

The birthday girls

This is after Rachel slept for 10 hours the night before, woke up, ate some cereal and looked at us and said,
"Mom and Dad, I'm tired."  She crawled back into the pack-n-play and slept for another 6 hours.  We might have to rent those bounce houses more often.
