its one thing

So its one thing.. I have a lot of thoughts up in this crazy mind of mind. I decided to write them all down. They are my thoughts and opinions and some straight hard facts about people,places, things etc. So read this if youd like if not its okay cause its almost theraputic to me.

The other day I read that someone has over 3+ journals that she writes in. WHAT a great idea. I say 3+ cause I cant remember the exact number. I remember in high school at girls camp we made journals. I made 2, one was specifically my spirtual feelings and thoughts. The other was drama, and the drama one i named boy journal. I wrote in it everything that would happen dealing with boys, probably more dedicated to tyler but mostly drama with girls and boys. Now it is HHAAALARIOUS to look back on. Therefore kendra oakden is my inspiration to start writing in journals again, I dont know if i will be like her and have 3+ but thats ok its worth a shot. I sitll have one from el salvador and in it i also have prior stories before ty and i got engaged and when we got engaged then I havent written in it for i guesss 2 years.. i need to catch up. I think i might type all of everything to catch up cause its faster even though hand writing is more unique and special.

Tyler and I just had our 3 years anniversary CRAZY.. and we have a kid wow I remember when we first kissed in front of the Briggs home. haha what a great memory. we went to the melting pot for dinner. not really aware of how much we were in for price wise. and after we learned we could have probably eaten at ruth's chris for cheaper. its ok it was a great experience. dessert of course was the best.

So its one thing (the title of my blog) because its whats been on my mind. It is one thing to brag about your children but then there is excessive bragging that just gets out of hand. Those people that are the excessivers <-- -is that even a word? they just drive me nuts (as my mom would say batty) anyway ya. I mean yes the great accomplishments your children make are great to hear about but when you keep going its just not polite
.     Did you know that it is NOT proper etiquite to always boast about the newest latest.. shoes,tv,$680000 car, etc that you got. It is known to be looked at as not polite. its just straight boasting and almost erragont. yes we all do it though.. I try to catch ourselves (tyler and I) before it happens. The polite thing to do is not say anything and if people notice great if they dont then they dont.. but please people DONT RUB IT IN other peoples faces. However yes of course if you land a new job or new house whatever it may be.. then yes.. and IF people ask whats new then sure..and of course blogging you put on there what you choose to its your blog you do whatever you want with it and people love to follow your lives and read about it soo BOAST about whatever whenever you want.... PLEASE dont make it the head of a conversation topic. IE: girl/dude i got these sick new shoes,tv,glasses,shirt.. whatever it may be BECAUSE.. like really how is one on the recieveing end supposed to respond to that? of course they'll be nice and say cool! but you never know if it can make them down/sad cause maybe they cant have new cool things like that too or they dont like your newest latest thing. Also, theres those who straight tell you they dont like whatever the thing may be. Thats their opinion yes BUT its rude that they just tell you straight up even if you didnt ask them, even if you did they should still lie unless you completely honestly ask for the dirty honest truth. IT's like when you know a child/baby is (not that cute) you still tell the parents they have a cute child..Your not going to say wow he looks...

COMPARING: who knew this would ever be a topic in my life. but honestly in the newest world i am in of kids there is like a "keeping up with jones CHILD" its RIDICULOUS.. I found myself starting to worry about tru like O my gosh hes not doing this yet hes not doing that yet. it was making me soo frustrated then i took a step back. are the people who are comparing doing it to make up for something that is wrong with their child.? or to make themselves feel better about themself? and even if there is something wrong no body cares or is going to judge you or look at them or you differently. SOO therefore If my child is NOT walking at 9-10 months its really ok because MOST kids I know start walking at 12 sometimes even up to 14 months. so if truman decides to not walk until he is even 2 or even at all its ok...at least he is happy and healthy. Also Every child is different just like every adult is different so why do people compare I have no idea. But I am puting a stop to it well i cant do it everywhere.BUT it will NOT happen in this family. Anytime someone asks or says "o he isnt doint that yet, wow! my child was doin that at his age i wonder why he isnt yet"? ahhhhhh! ill just simply direct the conversation elsewhere. and politely remind them every child is different..

David archileta is going to be serving an LDS full time mission. I assume HE has to stick to it now since he announced it at a concert on his tour, when he was in salt lake. so thats cool. My cousing would love to marry him when he returns, thatd be neet.

My DAD aka mcdreamy? yes mcdreamy haha that could come off weird/wierd? (i thought the rule was i before E except after C?wow i cant spell) since hes my dad.. however do you know this man

YAAA thats right! my dad.. DR.Tim Hansen is the new Chief of  the medical staff at Valley Childrens Hospital.. pictured with my mom Bev below! Anyway I am so proud of him..

ANYWAY. I realize this is by far the longest most random blog I have ever done. But it felt good to get everything off my mind written down. Also May I just say I love the Hollidays and the christmas season. This year we are spending it with the Hardy family for the first time and I am excited. It will be a new adeventure to see what its like with a different family yay! Have a Merry Christmas and Happy new year. For those of you who read this thank you for not judging!

You are no longer an Infant, and starting to be a baby. The kind that Hollywood makes you think your supposed to have right out of the womb. I must say I am loving it. You talk to us everyday with so much excitement and bring joy to your dad and I. You laugh and it makes your dad and I laugh too. How did we ever get along with out you here. Last night you decided what people have told us you'd do around this age, you woke up in the middle of the night laughed and talked to yourself, then fell back asleep. 
You are the greatest Truman. You know momma loves her sleep and you give her that blessing of sleeping 10 to 11 hours every night. 10:00 pm to about 9:00 am.
Your kinda short but that's ok you'll grow. 
Height: 24 inches (25-30%)
Weight: 15 lbs 2 ounces (50%)
your our little squishy round butter ball..love you keep it up!

our little fishy..thanksgiving..

When my family came to town we got together with my moms side and went swimming. It was Tru's first time. He loved it. I think it more relaxed him rather than hyped him up. Can a 4 month old really get that hyped up anyway. Thanksgiving was nice. We played in a turkey bowl in the morning, ate some food,took a nap,and went to see the lights at temple square. Also we met up with the amazing Oakdens. They are so cute and hilarious you cant not smile when your around them.

A name and a blessing

On November 20, 2011 Truman James Hardy Received his name and a blessing. It was wonderful. It was crazy to think that my own husband and child were participating in the opportunity. I have watched and listened to many before in my life but never imagined what it would be like as a parent. Lots of family came and showed their support it was a beautiful cold day.


Cousin Luke was an awesome helper!


3 Months

Truman is still growing thats for sure. We love his rolls and chunkiness nice and healthy just the way we like it. He is pretty good at holding his own head up now too. He sleeps through the night like a champ. 10:30-8:30 for now but we will slowly get him to do 12 hours as time goes on for now 10 hours is the best! I thank Baby wise even though I am not "hard core" with it, I have taken some pointers from it do whatever is best for us and life is GOOOOD..


This year we didnt do a monster mash or murder in the dark, instead we went to the zoo with some friends. To be honest the zoo was ok since you couldnt see anything cause it was so dark, but it was still fun to be with friends, eat lots of yummy stuff and play games afterwards.We also went to a young married activity for our ward which was fun. Tyler and I were 80'S people and Truman was a little spider.

Height: 22 1/2 inches (25-50%)

..looking back..

8 years ago on September 17th the Tyler and I started dating in High School. Its crazy where the time goes. Now we have a child together ahh! But I must say that doesn't stop us from living our lives and doing the random things we like to do day to day. I love you Tyler and love that you like to have fun with me and make me laugh.
We enjoy bringing our little tru with us to the things we like to do. The BYU-UTAH game was an upset to say the least but our little guy was a CHAMP.

--I must admit I am grateful that we followed our feelings and answer to prayer to start our little family. We have been "just us" for so long that adding another addition to "us" has been an adjustment but well worth it. It almost felt like someone was intruding in on "us" but it has been a blessing of an addition. I feel as if we wouldve waited for more than a certain amount of years it wouldve been an even harder adjustment because we wouldve been SO set in our ways.I love "us"= the now 3 of us 



Mr Truman James Hardy is now 1 month. Were pretty sure he is going to be quite the chunk and that's just how we'd like it. My great friend gave me the idea below to do for a picture each month until he is 12 months. We love our little guy.

Labor Day

This past weekend was fun. I am so grateful Tyler doesn't work weekends or holidays. His job is the greatest. On Labor day we went with some friends to a park above the capitol and the view was beautiful, and I happen to not catch a picture of the great view, however I got some randoms.

I also have just a thought. I love watching Ellen and the other day she made me laugh quite a bit. She said when you go to Olive Garden, they say "when your here your family" how are you family? If you were family you'd eat for free and you don't eat for free there. 


Our little man!

Its starting to actually feel real and not just like playing house..I cant believe I am a parent. Its a definite learning experience for all but well worth it! I love it. My brother Parker asked sooo what do you do all day whit? I laughed and said take care of the little man, my days fly by. Here are some pictures of the little guy hes 3 weeks!..

..a new chapter..

Right now I am soo lazy for some reason to update my blog ha! However here I am writing away. So this is going to be long....and have many pictures... For starters.

We went to Disneyland, and Newport beach for my brother Lyndon's wedding.
When i found out we would be doing this back around the same time I found out I was pregnant I was so nervous I wouldn't be able to go. Since I would be 36 weeks pregnant. Well I made it, and its probably because I told my doctor "um I am going" I don't care if I deliver the baby in Disneyland I am not missing out on this. Although I couldn't ride all the rides I still had a blast, I rented a put put and that was soo nice.. exits? i think yes..Pretty sure that all the dancing, boogie boarding, and moving around so much got the little guy moving his way to be born.

..disneyland..36 weeks..

..the lovers..
..we all look SOO happy..
..The family..

A week after we were back Tylers brother Greg and his wife Mandy had extra tickets to Tim Mcgraw so we went with them. It was a great concert. I was 37 weeks or 8 months and 1 week pregnant. The day before I had been having contractions, or what i thought were contractions and some people said they probably were and some told me they were just braxton hicks. I didnt know exactly what "contractions" are.. I was told "i WOULD KNOW" when i was having them.
..Tim Mcgraw..
Tyler overly excited for the concert.. haha
37 week belly shot/ 7 hours before I went into Labor, Thank you Tim Mcgraw our little guy must be a country boy
So I wasnt sure if i was in "true labor" or not...when we got to the hospital my awesome nurse Laquisha said "dam girl how are you even standing there talking to me, I was dialated to an 8 and 100% effaced..and they were about 3-4 minutes apart
pre epidural
after the epidural
He's here a whole 7 lbs 14 ounces and 3 weeks early thank you for coming early little guy if he would have come on his due date he probably would have weight almost 9 lbs ahh!

..going home.. ..Parker and his shoe..

..the little guy.. Truman..

sooo.. I feel I was definitely prepared for labor from everyone's stories about their labor. Mine was a whopping 4 hours, which i am told is great!.. this is very true except for the fact that 2 1/2 of those 4 hours were spent in my bed at home in pain wondering.. if it was real labor.. ha when it got way bad I wasnt very pleasant to be around, once I got my drugs i was so happy and chattin it up.
I was thinking, woman get all the advice about labor and pregnancy they need, sometimes way more than wanted. But I never got advice for the aftermath.. I would rather go through 10 labors "with medicine" than go through the "healing process" and postpartum. I am starting to feel better day by day. But wow bring on the achiness,soreness, tiredness, crying, and anxiety. Breastfeeding, is a work in progress and I didnt know I would feel all these emotions alongside of everything.. I am told every baby is different. But being the life support for someone is overwhelming until it sets in and your used to it and you and the baby figure things out.. how long do i do on each side, do i even do each side? how do i know hes getting enough, is he getting to much, what about when he spits up a TON, what about the fact that his nights and days are switched, a routine, how long will this take to get him on one do i want him on one? when do i start tummy time? when is a good time to take him to church? haha.. many other thoughts run through my head. all i know is to stay patient of course. but wow no one warned me about all these crazy emotions that swarm in.. Any advice from you moms out there!?

Things are going just dandy over here...being a mom is wonderful its weird calling myself mom and Tyler dad.. haha.. I am excited about starting this new chapter of our lives..
