Both of us are here for this blog.

First off, we would like to apologize for posting so often.  Things have been fairly low-key around here lately.  Here is what is on the agenda for this blog: 
  • Taylor Swift
  • Halo
  • The Voice
  • Windows Phone
  • Grey's
  • RSL
Then, it isn't a Davis blog without a ridiculous amount of pictures of Elle Mae.

Taylor Swift
Taylor's new album Red was recently released.  Jenessa bought it on the opening day.  Her favorite song is "All Too Well".  Some people don't like the album because it is not Country.  Jenessa, however, is proud of Taylor for trying new things and taking risks.  Jenessa prefers her Country but is very happy with Red and the beautiful lyrics.  Also Jenessa doesn't like when people bash Taylor.  Thats good for now

Halo 4 came out this past week on Election day.  Let's just say that Bradford is glad that something good came of that day.  He still does not own it however.  He is waiting patiently till Christmas, or until Jenessa goes out of town.  Bradford really doesn't know why he is into Halo so much, but it has a hold of him.  There is an unfortunate rule in the Davis household that allows him to only play it on Saturday mornings when both girls are asleep.  He is hoping this will change.  

The Voice
Jenessa started watching The Voice this season.  She really likes judges Blake and Adam.  There are 10 contestants left and she does not know who will win. (Bradford does)  Her favorites are: Amanda, Cassadee, Silvia, Bradford, and Dez, and Terry.  Christina Aguilera has huge knockers.  Jenessa does not watch reality TV, but is pleased with her discovery.  

Windows Phone 
The Beef Dawg has had a Windows Phone for 2 years now.  Before this he had an iPhone.  He has grown to love this little device and is excited to get the new 920 for Christmas.  He understands that they are the underdogs, and that's what he like about them.  He feels that the iPhone is too structured, and Google is too unstructured.  The WP is a great middle ground that allows him to personalize it just the way he likes it.  With the Xbox, a PC comp, and the WP, its a slick setup.  Needless to say, the Beef Dawg is pumped.

Grey's Anatomy came at a great time in J-Dawgs life.  She just had a baby and spent a lot of time nursing/airing out Elle's rash infected bum.  Jenessa discovered Grey's on Netflix and was instantly hooked.  It could be the hormones, but there were tears in almost every episode.  Especially season 8.  Let's just say Grey, Yang, Karev, Stephens, O'Mailey, other Grey, McDreamy, McSteamy, Bailey, Chief,  Montgomery, and all the other staff of Seattle Grace Hospital have become like family.  RIP some of them... :(

B-Nugget loves Real.  This was the season where he fell in love with them.  It started by playing Fifa with Ness-a-tron, his sister and brother-in-law.  He has always liked them, but something clicked and it took it into high gear this year.  He bought a jersey, made the fight song his ringtone, and attended many classes with Will Johnson.  Some of them, he even said hi to him.  The early loss in the playoffs was very upsetting.  Now he gets to follow The Voice... 

Elle Mae
Elle is 5 months old and cute as ever.  She is starting to laugh, eating solids, and sitting up all by herself. Kind of.  She has become a thumb-sucker.  Whenever she gets tired, she will stick her thumb in her mouth, and cover her eyes with the other hand.  It melts our hearts.  She also has a solid bald spot on the back of her head from laying down.  We are hoping that hair will eventually grow, because right now it is very smooth and bald.  Enjoy the pics.

This is her sleeping position.  If she doesn't have her arms free and up, she won't sleep.

Elle is 3 months old tomorrow.  In honor of this big accomplishment in her life, we decided to overload you with pictures.  enjoy!

Road trip to St. George.  We went with all of Bradford's buds and their respective spouses (except for D Walk and Amanda, and the Weve.  We missed them greatly)

Blessing Day!  With so many families we decided to do the blessing at Jenessa's mom's house.  It was a great time.  Elle did so good.

7 Weeks Old

Almost seven weeks have gone by, and Elle is growing so fast.  Ness was at the doctors yesterday and Elle weights 11 pounds 12 ounces.  She is chunkin' right up.  It has been so much fun having her here.  Tiring.  But so much fun.  We just got a Bloggie.  Yeah, if you innitially said Bloogie like I did, don't worry, it isn't a British booger.  It's a little camcorder.  We will be taking some vids of her, so watch for those.  

Haley Miller just posted Elle's pics from her photo shoot when she was 10 days old.  Check them out.  

Here are some more pics of lately.

This is my favorite time, right out of the bath.

Her first 4th of July.  My sister had these baby ear muff things that she wore. Slept through the whole thing.

We took her up to Logan to meet her new cousin Dayne Butters.  Had to stop off at the Utah State.  Not a true Aggie yet.

Pretend you don't see me hand, and this picture is sweet

Love this little girl.

Elleanor Mae

We haven't blogged in a long time and we apologize.  Nothing significant happened in our lives, so don't worry.  Well, nothing significant until June 11, that is.  It happened like this... (if you don't want to read the story, feel free to skip ahead for pictures). 

I (Jenessa) had a great pregnancy.  I really did not mind being pregnant at all.  The last couple weeks however were very long and uncomfortable.  Towards the end my blood pressure decided to get really high which caused super bad head aches and bed rest.  The baby's due date was June 20 though, so I knew I just had to buckle down and finish strong.  So I went to my normal doctors appointment at 4:00 on June 11 expecting my doc to tell me things look good, but stay on bed rest and things should start happening here in the next week or so.  Bradford normally doesn't come to doctors appointments with me because all you do is get weighed, pee on a stick, and ask any questions you may have, but luckily he decided to go with me to this one.  The doctor asked how I was feeling and I told her the head aches were getting worse but I was good etc.  She decided to do an ultrasound to see if my fluid levels could be causing the head aches, not just the high blood pressure.  She did the ultrasound and discovered that there was almost no fluid around the baby and that baby girl decided to be breech.  Because there was no fluid, baby could not flip around and needed to come out asap.  The doctor told us that baby girl would be coming tonight via c-section and to head downstairs to get suited up.  We were shocked to say the least.  I could not stop crying and was so scared for baby and myself.  I was not planning on a c-section so I had no idea what was going to be taking place.  At the same time we were so excited and could not believe we were going to be having our little girl in just a few short hours. 

Well, long story short, they monitered baby and me for a while, then at 9:30 p.m., sent me off to get anethesia.  Bradford then joined us in the surgery room and at 10:01, Elleanor was born.  She came out bottom first, then legs, then after a few tugs, her head popped out.  She weighed 7 lbs 9 oz and was 20 inches long.  I don't remember a lot about the rest of the night, but I remember holding her and thinking how amazing it was that just a couple minutes ago she was living in me!  How crazy is that?  Maybe it is just me that can't get over that concept, but I am still in awe with the whole process.  Elle was such a pleasant baby in the hospital and was so alert and looking around at all her visitors.  She has been SO much fun to have at home.  We kind of feel like we are just playing house, and life will go back to normal soon.  Turns out this is our new normal!  So there ya go...the semi long story of our Elleanor Mae.  Here are some pictures of her first four days of life!
