Recap of the last year!


  • 9th - we got our big fat positive pregnancy test! Woo-hoo! We were both so excited.

  • We began thinking about our living situation. We were living in Lacey and I was commuting to Snoqualmie for work. We decided it just wouldn't work once Baby Doyle arrived.


  • We put an offer on a condo in Pacific (near Auburn) and they accepted. We put the Lacey house up for rent and soon found some tenants.


  • Jesse's parents came to visit from Minnesota for Easter. While they were here we went to our first doctor appointment and were able to hear Baby Doyle's heartbeat!
  • We closed on the new place and moved into it by the end of month.


  • We found out that Baby Doyle was a boy! Jesse was surprised.... but I already knew, mother's just tend to have a gut feeling.

  • We left at the end of the month to go on vacation to St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands with our good friends Joe and Nicole Hawe. We had a blast!


  • Jesse left at the beginning of the month for a 2 month deployment.

  • I went to Minnesota to visit Jesse's family. Jesse's sisters, Racquel and Liz, threw a beautiful baby shower. It was so great to see Jesse's extended family.

  • My grandfather, Marvin, passed away. The funeral was in Iowa, so my mom flew out to Minnesota at the end of my visit with the Doyle's and we drove down to Iowa. It was nice to see where my mom grew up and see so much about my family's history


  • The ladies at work threw me a wonderful baby shower at our boss' house.

  • I got the nursery completed with the help of my mom and good friend Meghan. I did a Minnesota Twins baseball theme, Jesse loves it!

  • Jesse got home at the end of the month from his deployment.

  • My mom and Colleen threw an amazing baby shower with all of my closest friends and family.


  • Hunter Roger was born on the 8th after 13 hours of labor at Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup, WA.

  • Jesse's parents came out on the 12th to meet their grandson! We just hung around the house and got settled to having a new addition to our family.


  • Hunter took his first airplane ride to Minnesota to meet the rest of Jesse's family. We surprised them with the visit, it was a fun 5 days.

  • Jesse left on the 20th for Operation Deep Freeze in New Zealand and Antarctica for a month. I decided at the last minute to take Hunter and an adventure and visit Jesse in Christchurch, NZ. We left on the 23rd and stayed for 2 weeks. Hunter spent his first Thanksgiving in NZ, the resort had a special dinner for Jesse's crew and their families. It was an absolutely amazing trip!


  • Our good friends, Ryan and Stephanie, welcomed their baby girl, Halle, into the world on the 14th. She's a beautful little girl and we are so excited for them!
  • Jesse got home from NZ just in time to join in the Christmas festivities.

  • Hunter spent his 1st Christmas with lots of family. We went to my parent's house on Christmas Eve night and Christmas Day and then with my Dad's family on the day after Christmas.

  • I returned back to work full-time on the 28th.

  • To ring in the New Year, Hunter slept through the night for the first time and has being doing so since! What a wonderful resolution.


  • On the 23rd Hunter was dedicated at Life Center church in Tacoma. His godparents are Meghan Fagerberg and Joe and Nicole Hawe. We are so blessed to have so many family and friends come and support Hunter.


  • Colleen, Hunter's Grantie (Grandma/Auntie), came down from Alaska for a visit.
  • Jesse's Mom, Renee, came in the middle of the month to visit us. We had a wonderful time relaxing and spending some quality time together. She graciously offered to watch Hunter on Valentine's Day so Jesse and I could spend our first night out together since becoming parents.

  • We took Hunter to the timeshare at Ocean Shores for the first time outside of my belly. Our friends Zack and Sarah and their son, Ben, joined us. We had a great time grilling out on the beach and enjoying the great weather!
