6 weeks and growing

Connor had his 6 week check up a few days ago. He is packing it on and becoming quite plump. We love it though!

He is 11 and half pounds
21 and half inches
In the 73 percentile for his weight and only in the 5th percentile for his head measurements. his head is still a little small but it will catch up soon. He is growing and doing very well.

We got his first smile on 11/17/11 finally. I fell in love all over again, I seem to do that every day as he changes right before my eyes. It's So cool to see the growth that he is having. It makes me realize how amazing the human body is and how we were created.

I was lucky enough to snap a photo of this adorable smile of his!! Gotta love I phones

The best thing to happen in 2010!

Welcoming Connor John Montgomery to the family October 11th 2010 born 5:55 Pm weighing 7 pound 5 oz and 20 1/2 inches and growing every day!

We adore this little man so much. He has totally and completely changed our lives for the better and we feel so blessed to have him. I would definitely say it's been an amazing and challenging start of motherhood as we both get to know each other. I wouldn't trade it for anything though.
My experience of labor and delivery was great I can't complain it went really well. I would do it again in a heart beat. I do attribute the positive experience though to my epidural. what a difference that made I will admit I am a wuss and didn't take the pain very well, but i am not trying to prove anything to anyone. It made the whole process peaceful; and relaxing and I am thankful for that.

We delivered at Baylor medical Center in Frisco and that was awesome. The nurses and Drs were Great they made the experience even better for us with there expertise and kindness. We look forward to having our next baby there in the future a few years from now;)

Between the sleepless nights and the demand of nursing I haven't had a whole lot of time to blog and when there is I would rather sleep. I will never take sleep for granted again for the rest of my life. Now that we are starting to fall into somewhat of a routine I will have more time to blog and post about our little man and the latest in the Montgomery lives.

California Trip

This is way late and I have been really bad about blogging, life has been very busy and i am glad to now have some time to post about what we have been up to. At the beginning of August Gerret and I were finally able to take a sweet vacation over to our trumping grounds to Carlsbad, where we spent lot's of time with family, friends and the beach. We left Texas at the right time when the temperatures exceeded well over a 100 degrees. August is the hottest month here so we picked a great time to leave. unfortunately we were really bad about taking pictures for some reason on this trip, but we got to do a ton of fun things like

Visit My cousins and family along with close friends in Arizonia on the way. Yes we did drive like crazy people there.

lay out on the beach

Go up to Huntington Beach to visit friends and return to the beach where Gerret proposed that's always fun!

Go to a concert in the park and see the local band called No Duh featuring all the no doubt music they weren't to bad.

Go to the Magic castle in LA. We have been trying to go there for the last 4 years now and fortunately we made it this trip thanks to our good friends Seth and Lindsey!

Had an amazing Baby shower from my mother in law and two awesome sister in laws! that was so much fun;)

I spent lots of late nights with some high school besties and caught up, man have things changed since high school. All for the better of course.

Ate at our favorite Mexican restaurants multiple times! Just can't get the same kind of Mexican food in Texas the way you can in California.

slept in everyday!

Went to Glendora and spent time with Gerret's grandma and Uncle

Had many wonderful meals from Gerret's Mom she is a great cook.

spent as much time as I could on the beach, that's what I miss the most about California other than some of my best friends. We really was spoiled growing up there.

We had a great time and hope to be able to go back next summer around the same time in August! Except this time we will have a little guy to bring with us cant wait for that!!!!!

Austin Texas

This view was just amazing I didn't want to leave.

Who's are bigger the Cannon or Gerret's?

This is the view from Mt. Bonnell I would love a piece of land over looking that! This was at Oasis resturant the place to watch the sunsets it was beautiful

The Capital building of Austin, It really is bigger than our nations capital

The view from Barton Spring on our canoe

Gerret and I haven't had a ton of time to explore Texas and we love traveling and venturing out to new areas. So Gerret decided this would be a great weekend to go I wasn't gonna argue with a trip out of town. We were very lucky to find a cheap hotel room off of price line. love that website! for $40 a night at a double tree Awesome we were excited. We had a great list from family and friends telling us what we had to do when we were there and restaurants to eat at. amazing suggestions that were so much fun thank you so much.

We went canoing on Barton Springs were they had plenty of snapping turtles and swans and all sorts of fish, Hiking at Zelik Park, and checked out the view at Mt Bonnell over lake Travis which was absolutely beautiful. toured the capitals Congress that is an amazing building. We enjoyed lots of yummy food at the Oasis restaurant that over looks Lake Travis and gives you this feeling like you not even in Texas. Had breakfast at Omeletree a very Hippie and natural breakfast cafe really good though. Of course we had to have dessert somewhere so we went to Amys ice cream kinda like Cold stone but way cheaper and very yummy. It was so nice to get away for a few days. Austin is a beautiful part of Texas to visit with lots of outdoor activities that is surrounded with hills, lakes and rivers I highly recommend visiting;) Thanks Babe for a great weekend getaway. Got take advantage of that while I still can!

Drum Roll Please ?!?!?!?!?!?!?

We went to the Dr today to do our 20 week ultrasounds where they check for any abnormalities and scan and measure all the body parts see if that little person is healthy and all, oh and find out if it is a boy or girl.

It's a BOY!!!!

We are soooooo excited. I will admit I totally thought it was gonna be a girl ever since I found out I was Preggo, my first initial feeling was it's a girl. today I was told differently and I couldn't be happier about it. I am happy he is healthy and the Dr said everything looks great. During the ultrasound he wouldn't stop moving around so he was being a little tricky on the Dr when it came time to see the sex. So we don't have a very good picture of him to show. He seems to be a squirmy little guy. I have yet to really feel him and have that distinguished, yup that was it feeling, but I know once I feel it at one point I am gonna wish he would just sit still. Until then i will just keep woundering.
We are SO grateful for this amazing blessing in our lives and we look forward to meeting the little man that's gonna steal our hearts!

Turner Falls Park

It has been a long time since I had been camping. last time I went was young women's camp when I was 17, a few years have gone by since then. Gerret gets to go camping once a month with the young men's, so he gets his fill pretty often.
We decided to go to turner falls park in Davis Oklahoma with a few good friends a couple weekends ago. It was beautiful they had trails and natural pools to swim in complete with a slide and diving board. We Hiked down the falls which was a bit slippery cold, but so worth it. we got to enjoy in the typical camping food hot dogs, tinfoil dinner for some of us and peach cobbler from a dutch over which by the way was amazing Kylie good job on that one!
we stayed one night at the park in the best spot surrounded by trees and later on that night raccoons!
It was so much fun and the weather couldn't have been better. It was nice to get away from the flat lands of Dallas and see hills and giant rocks with caves. We will defiantly have to go camping again before it gets to hot to sleep outside.

Three Awesome Years!

This past Wednesday on St.Patricks day was our three Anniversary! We decided since I don't get Saturdays off we would both take the actual day off. It was SO nice to spend time together. We went to the Dallas World Aquarium. It was beautiful they did a great job with the facility, they are a little pricey since its somewhat small but still a fun thing to do in Dallas. We got to see all kinds of fish and birds and all sorts of other animals. We went to dinner at PF Changs which was SO yummy. All and all it was a great day and the newest addition to the Gorgueiro family was born Che Daniel Gorgueiro on our anniversary that is pretty Awesome!!! Congrats to Danny and Veronica and Che!

I am so thankful to my loving husband and the man that he is to me. I am so incredibly blessed to be able to share my whole life with him and SO much more. He inspires me to be a better person and is always there for me when things get rough and challenging. I love you Gerret thank you for being my best friend and everything else that I couldn't possibly describe. You are truly the most Amazing part of my life.

Here a few pictures of the Aquarium:

This was the Sloth that didn't want to be bothered. Makes you want to watch Ice Age.
Can you find Nemo in this picture? We did.

A few months back I took a trip out to Lafayette Indiana to see my best friend Caiti from High school before she went on her mission to Anchorage Alaska. We hadn't seen each other in over 7 years We always kept in touch, but have lived in other areas of the country after we graduated. It was great to see here and her family again. We had some much needed girl time, got to have a a few bonfires go to lake Michigan and the most adorable town St.Joseph off of the great lakes. see downtown Indianapolis, visit an art museum and do a little shopping. Seeing lake Michigan was like being at the beach I loved it. We also had to take a picture with the corn I have never seen so many corn fields in my life, but that is mainly what they grow in Indiana. I had never been to the great lakes before and that was awesome they are enormous to see. Here a few pictures of the view. I would love to defiantly go back and visit it was so much fun!

It's been way to long

Wow I can't believe its been over three months since I blogged last. Work has taken over our lives and we are slaves to our jobs, but we love them and things are going great for us in the big D. We love our apartment, our ward and the family around us and the new friends we have made. We have officially lived in Texas a year now. Its gown on us quite a bit, I will admit its not as easy on the eyes as California is but the people are great and there is plenty to do around here. Although we don't have time to do much but look forward to trying out a bunch of things we are interested in. like Visiting San Antonio , Austin, the Aquarium, South Padre Island, the Stock yards and many, many more.
Since I blogged last Christmas has come and gone valentines day, My birthday and our three year anniversary is approaching fast! all these past holidays except the last one were awesome. We had Gerrets parents out here with us for Christmas it was great to see them and spend time together. Valentines day was relaxing. we had a steak diner and watched The Time Traveler wife while enjoying some yummy chocolate covered strawberries! All and all these last few months have been great! I have been a slacker about taking pictures so unfortunately I don't have any pictures to post maybe next time though.
Work has kept our schedule very full. Gerrets job is amazing and he feels SO blessed that he works for such a great business. He has been able to take on a incredible amount of responsibilities in addition to what he already does. So job security is what it sounds like to me. He is really enjoying all the work he does and the cool things he is learning along the way. My job at the spa is great we are a growing spa with lots of goals and I am happy to be apart of SO many events that we host and take care of in the Mckinney community. Spring and summer are some of the busiest times through out the year in this industry. I am looking forward to staying busy and meeting new people. We both are so grateful for our jobs and the way things have worked out since we moved to Texas. Hopefully I don't take three months to post my next blog but we shall see how that goes.
