Savannah's 1st swim!

John and Nicole had one last summer bash to end the summer...they are always so great to plan things for everyone to get together!
Josh thought it would be fun to take Savannah swimming...I was a little hesitant at first, and so was she, as shown in the first pic!
After she got used to the water temperature, she loved it. I think she swallowed a little water, but it didn't seem to bother her. Luckily it was salt water, so it made me feel a little better that she wasn't taking in chlorine! We love our little fish!

Our baby girl is 1 month old today! This has been the hardest, fastest, slowest, most life changing, rewarding, exhausting and crazy month of my life! I think I finally am getting a hang of this stay at home mom thing, well sort of. If one thing, being a mom has made me way more emotional/sensitive/spiritual. I think it's not only because of my new little spirit, but because of all the time I have to ponder. I have also had to give up my stubbornness and rely on my Heavenly Father more than ever. I want to quote part of an amazing post I read from a fellow blogger that helped me after a particularly crazy day.

"...And for my own load, I am grateful. I don't wish to carry it-and sometimes I even resent it-but I see it is my own, and I will bear it with all the dignity and faith I can muster. And I can humbly testify that I don't carry it alone. I recognize that my Savior carries the greater part with me (and He sweetly sends me help through family and friends too), and I know that yoked with Him I am able to move through the mud, push up against the dirt and grow."

I wish I could write my thoughts as well as she can...I am extremely grateful for my many blessings, especially my new little family. Lets hope for many more great months to come!

3+ weeks...

First time to church, we made it through sacrament meeting and then went home. Yes, we all think we can get my cute girl to smile already! I think it's just a lot of gas! (Thanks for somewhat Indian giving that dress back Kim. Savannah had a minor blowout in it too!)
Not much new in the Chase home. It's true that now that I have a kid all I can think to blog about is Savannah. I wish I had other things to blog about, but all I do all day is hang out with her...I still have anxiety about leaving the house, but I am doing much better! Thanks to everyone who has come sat with me, helped me, and been there to talk to the last couple of weeks. It has really made things much easier. We are so blessed to have such a great support system. I am still booking appointments if you want to come up the mountain to hang out with us! Ha, Ha...

I have been meaning to post for a long time...I still want to write about my whole delivery process. However, I couldn't wait to post these cute pictures! Aubrey Bolton took them last night at Wheeler Farm. She put a sneak peek on her blog,, but I can't wait to get the disc from her! Isn't my baby the cutest thing ever?! Check the rest out on her blog! Anyway, we just got back from Savannah's 2 week appt.
Here are some things new with her...I hope I don't jinx myself...
*She weighs 9 lbs. 14 ozs. (yep, she's gained over a pound in 2 weeks)
*She lost her umbilical cord on her 2 week b-day, in the parking lot right before her pics!
*Last night she slept from 10 pm to 4 am...

We love our baby girl!
