Baby Boy, Brothers, Blessings, and Birthdays!

Life has been busy! Here are some things we have been up to...

Baby boy Rhett Harrison Sutarik was born on May 29th. He was a whopping 10 lbs 2 ounces. He was born with lots of hair, and is an easy going little guy.


Scott was home from the USAFA for only 4 days before he left on his mission. This is the day he went through the temple.


Somehow we had time to swim...



Baby Rhett was blessed while Scott was home. This is our church building in Seattle.

Our newest family picture. Yes, I know I look exhausted. That's because I am!
















The latest family picture. I am sure my mom will choose a much more serious version of this picture to send out for this year's Christmas card.







Somehow we had time to go down slides too...







Baby Rhett is finally here!















Saydee is 2! Here she is with her Thomas cake!






Saydee and her best friend Mallory. I am so glad that I finally caught their cute hugs on camera. Mallory gave Saydee a matching tutu for her birthday.









Another picture of me looking exhausted with my new baby boy.












The first time Saydee met Rhett.












After a very hard, very intense, very natural labor, we were all in tears that he was finally here!



















Here is little Rhett on his blessing day.























Saydee wasn't quite sure she wanted Rhett that close to her for a picture.





This is the last picture that we took of Scott and the kids before he left on his 2 year mission to Salta, Argentina.













Oh yeah, somewhere in the last few weeks it was my birthday too. This is the cake Ted and Saydee made for me. She put on the sprinkles...and ate most of the frosting off.







We are actually very blessed to have such a busy life recently. It was very busy but very wonderful. Life is good.

How exciting! Congrats on Rhett! I bet Saydee will love having a baby brother to play with! I love your little, growing family!! You are amazing! By the way, we recently moved to Redmond so we need to get together! Good luck with everything and let me know if you need anything. I'm not too far away now!
