Signing Day:]

JD finally signed his contract today! They had to finish negotiating the signing bonus so once that was all finished up he sealed the deal. Now his contract terms are just contingent upon his making the team… but we won’t know that til September 6th. CRAZY! Jonnie and I got to go with him to sign and it was fun to see the Dolphins training facilities. Since I forgot my camera when we went there for family day, I decided I better get some pictures this time around! It’s nuts we only have a week left til we head back west!! We are so excited to see our families and friends and we KNOW they are all SO excited to see Jonnie! And maybe us too just a tiny bit. Oh yeah… and Jonnie has found her thumb!! I know she might get into a bad habit… but selfishly as her Mom… it is SO nice when she can soothe herself for a bit! And it just so dang cute.

Hopefully I’ll be better at blogging when we actually have decent access to the internet! Since I can only blog in the lobby it is SUCH a pain! And then to top it all off, the internet on my laptop went all retarded so I had to transfer posts I had already written on there to JD’s computer plus all the pictures. This is why there are THREE posts I did all today. So don’t forget to read the two below this one as well!

Cosy has come and gone!

The last week FLEW by! Cosy was here from Wednesday to Wednesday and it seemed like she was out here for a weekend. We did lots of fun things! We first took her down to the Keys… we were hoping to find a good beach but that definitely didn’t happen… so we ended up mostly sight seeing and eating at a yummy seafood place called Wahoos…. We went about 30 miles past Key Largo to a place called Islamorada.

The next day we headed to Fort Lauderdale beach with some of our friends from the ward. The beach seriously stressed me out! I’m always worried about if Jonnie’s too hot/hungry/sandy/uncomfortable. I can’t just relax and enjoy it anymore… but it is still always a good time!

JD had to take off on Sunday for the rest of her stay to the rookie symposium in Palm Beach Gardens where all the draft picks had to go for the exciting meetings full of lectures on financial stuff…not dating under aged girls… substance abuse… all that fun stuff. So the girls took the next few days to go shopping, shopping, and more shopping! Jonnie was such a little trooper! Speaking of… she has hit a few milestones in the last couple days! She is starting to sit up on her own and it is so dang cute! She also does cute little giggles and we finally were able to catch some on film! Since she’s such a good eater…. I decided to get rice cereal and squeeze some in every now and then… she actually did really good when I gave it to her the first time.

Cosy took a million more pictures than me so once she posts them… I’ll do a pictures only post so I can have them all on here for my sake especially! It was so fun having her out here and went by WAY too fast! We love you Cos!

Supposed to be posted June 20th-ish

It’s been awhile! Since the last update…. JD has finished up OTA’s and is now just doing rookie lifting and conditioning 4 days a week. His biggest focus right now is getting stronger and gaining weight! He wants to be close to 240 by the time we head back to Utah.. What a life it would be to have to TRY to gain weight right? Haha

Everything out here is going great though! Jonnie girl is so much fun and getting so big and rambunctious! Her cute blue Folsom eyes are turning browner and browner by the day! Right now they are so pretty… golden brown in the middle, outlined in pretty blue… I love it! She’s also becoming quite the little talker…. Every morning we have a cute little conversation and she tells me ALL about her night full of sweet dreams. She seriously melts my heart. As for fun in the sun, she loves loves loves the water…. And she finally got to taste some of the salty Atlantic! It is beautiful water out here…. And SO warm! It stays shallow for a long time and the waves aren’t too scary so JD took her out pretty far and she was loving it!

For Father’s Day, we missed being back home with our sweet Dads… but had fun celebrating JD’s first big day as a Daddy! For his present, Jonnie got him step up bars put on the truck and he loves them! They were really his idea…. But we can take the credit:] Sunday night 5 couples from the ward got together and had a barbecue with lots of yummy food and good company. I seriously love the friends we have made out here! We are so lucky!

I can’t believe we have less than three more weeks out here til we head back west for a few weeks! Cosy gets out here Wednesday night and will be here for a week and we are SO excited! We’re gonna try and do lots of fun things and give her a taste of what life out east is really like. She is most excited to see Jonnie…. And I can’t blame her. She is the cutest little chunk around:] We hope everyone is doing well back home and can’t wait to see you in a few weeks! Happy Father’s Day Dads!! We love you both so much!
