What a night...

Yesterday turned out to be quite interesting for me. I had school until 5 and had to hurry home to get ready to head to Chance's company Christmas party at 7:30. Now, keep in mind that with no traffic (luckily it was Saturday, so there wasn't any) my drive home from school takes about 50 minutes and then the drive from our house to the restaurant where the party was is about 25 minutes, so that gave me just enough time to come home and get ready. HA! That's in a perfect world!!! I wasn't able to leave school until about 5:15 and as we (I carpool with a girl from school that only lives about 5 miles from me) were driving on the freeway we heard this strange noise, I knew it wasn't right and I had a feeling it was my tire. We pulled off an exit in the shoulder to check it out, low and behold my front right tire wasn't just flat it was coming apart at the seams! Great! I drove slowly to a gas station and called Chance for instructions on how exactly to change my tire. That took about twenty minutes and let me tell I don't think I did too bad for my first time changing a tire! Well we got back on the freeway and of course with my spare on I didn't want to go over 60 MPH. It was a long drive home! Once I got home, I only had a few minutes to throw myself together, and luckily Chance had gotten all of Quentin's stuff ready (or so I thought). Phew, we made it to the restaurant only a few minutes late and were finally seated. I was holding Quentin and I handed him to Chance when I noticed I had two huge wet spots on my lap. Crap! Quentin leaked through his diaper, luckily it was only pee! I took him to the bathroom to change him with all the stuff Chance had gotten ready... yep, no extra clothes! I went out and asked Chance to check in the car to see if we were lucky enough that we had an extra onsie in there, we did! Aaah, now it's time to relax and enjoy ourselves! Right, it wasn't 30 minutes later and Chances boss was playing with Quentin and said something about leaking and we both figured he was just talking about earlier. Nope, Quentin leaked again! Only this time, not pee! We had to make do with what we had and use his other clothes that he had on before that had dried for him to wear! We ended up having a great time at dinner after that and no other crazy things happened to us.

Happy Thanksgiving

This is a pic of Quentin from Halloween, but I thought it was fitting for today since he was a turkey! I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving!

Quentin loves his bath! Here's a video of him splashing in the tub... WARNING: Nudity

The video was to big to post so chance put it on his website. You can view it at:

Chance and I went and got our Florida Driver's licenses today. It was so nice at DMV because we basically walked in and went right up to the counter. Now all that's left is for us to get our Florida license plate. In order to do that we have to get our Auto insurance through a carrier here, since our current insurance doesn't cover Florida. We got a few quotes today and the premiums are ridiculous! We were kind of spoiled in Utah with our insurance because Chance knew our agent, so he (apparently) gave us a killer deal. I almost can see why it's so much here because the drivers are horrible (yes, even worse than Utah drivers!). Just wanted to let everyone know that we are 'officially' Floridians!

Growing Boy

Quentin is getting bigger everyday (surprise, surprise). He is such a happy boy and so much fun! He smiles all the time, but it seems like whenever I get the camera in front of him to take pictures, he never smiles! He loves eating his cereal. I decided to take of picture of him, of course no smile, but it's still cute.

Fun in the Sun

Ok, so I haven't been so good at updating my blog. I'm sorry, but it's been a little crazy for the last month. I will try to do better...

Yesterday we took our first trip to the beach! It was only an hour drive for us and we were sitting on the beautiful white sand on the Gulf Coast. One of the first things we saw when we sat down was a couple dolphins about 50 yards out playing in the water! I have to say that Quentin seemed to enjoy his first trip to the beach, but he was covered from head to toe in sand! With this so close to us, I hope we go quite a bit because it's cheap (free) and tons of fun! After we sat on the beach for a few hours we walked across the street to grab some food. We sat out on the deck to watch the sunset while we ate. It had all the potential to be a beautiful sunset, but at the last minute there was a bunch of clouds. I was a little disappointed, but it was still awesome!

Big change

For anyone that knows me, they know that I have just about the thickest, coarsest, nastiest hair ever! With us moving to a place where it's going to be very humid, it just doesn't work with my hair. I went to my stylist today and had her chop it off!!! I know, crazy, because I haven't done something different with my hair in years. But, I love it!!! Here's a pic that I took with my phone, so it's not the greatest but at least it's something you all can see.

We had our offer accepted after some negotiating...that means we're that much closer to being official Florida residents! Here's a couple pics of our future home!

Last weekend I left Quentin home with Chance and headed to Tampa to check out houses. Let's just say we looked at about 30 houses in the span of 2 days! It was a lot, but totally worth it! Now that I have finally been to Tampa I am that much more excited about moving. It was beautiful! I will say that even in the short weekend I was there, you definately keep way more up to date on the status of all the hurricanes going on. I came home and went over the houses I liked with Chance and we decided on one to make an offer on. Hopefully it will work out, because it's such a great time to buy.

On another was so hard being away from Quentin for even the 3 days I was gone. When I got home it seemed like he had changed so much! Chance is a great daddy and took great care of him!

Last weekend we had Quentin Blessed in my parents ward in Idaho. I was so happy that Chance's parents and brother Jason came! It was also very nice that all my brothers came from Iowa for the blessing. It was an awesome weekend spending it with family and I want to thank everyone who came! It made it very special for us!
Here's our happy lil guy

Here's a pic of all the Giles cousins

2 Months

I can't believe Quentin is already 2 months! Time has definately been flying by since we've had him. He had his Dr. appointment last week and he weighs 12lbs 2 oz and is 24 inches.

It's Official

Well it's finally official...we're moving to Florida! Chance worked out all of our concerns we had with his new boss and we both feel good and excited about moving. It's going to be a new adventure for our family and we can't wait. We'll be moving the beginning of October because I start school the end of the month. Which I am also excited to finally be doing something that I will love! We will definately miss our family here, but we'll keep in touch and come to visit.

In other news Quentin changes more and more each day. He's getting so fun, smiling and all, I can't wait until he starts giggling. He's almost 2 months and because I see him everyday I don't really see how much he's growing. Here's a cute pic of the little guy.

2 weeks!

We took Quentin in for his 2 week appt. on Monday. He weighs 8 lbs 10 oz and is 21". I was really happy about that because the Dr. says they like them to at least be back up to birth weight by this appt. and he's 1 lb over, keep growing baby!

Due Date

Even though my actual due date isn't until May 27th, I've had a feeling since the beginning of my pregnancy that I would have him early. I know, I know, probably just high hopes! I thought it would be interesting to hear everyone's opinion of when I will deliver...

So I must be crazy because we got another dog last night. He's awesome and definately has the english bulldog look I wanted. I was kind of having buyers remorse this morning...thinking about three dogs with a new baby only a couple weeks away. Then I saw him again when I got out of bed and I can't help but love him already! Here's Dozer!

Yes I'm Pregnant

Well my brothers have been saying they wanted to see some pics of me prego, so I decided I might as well start a blog. I'm not sure how often I'll have posts right now, but I'm sure once the baby comes I will have a lot more exciting things to update on here. Well here are a couple pics for everyone's viewing pleasure!!!
