A Little Small

So we got the jump-a-roo out for Blakley a few weeks ago. She loves it but just isn't heavy enough to actually jump.
Her little feet hang about 4 inches above the floor.

Weekend In SLC

We had a whirl wind of a weekend, but it so fun to see family! Thursday morning we drove the 8 hours and the kids did soo well! Friday we got up early to get to the SLC temple by 7:30 for my cousins wedding. While sitting there waiting Elder Holland walked by, so neat! The ceremony was wonderful and it was nice to be in the temple! Grayson loved walking around the grounds and playing with my cousins son. After pictures we of course had to hit up Attic Circle. We enjoyed our food while Gryason played. That night we went to the reception where Grayson ran around again. Blakley was passed around all day (it was nice to have so much family around to watch the kids). It was a long day but despite the lack of good naps the kids did good.
Saturday we were able to go to some of my cousins football games, hang out with family and eat at a great Mexican place "El Matador".

Loving the temple!

I Did It!

So I saw this cool square wreath at one of the blogs I follow. I thought I could do that. I went out and got everything to make it(spent $7 and didn't even use all the leaves I bought or the mini pumpkins and gourds)

This is what I ended up with.

Boys Will Be Boys

Here are some videos of Grayson from the last few weeks.
As we were putting the pool away we found a grasshopper in it. Kevin caught it and Grayson loved watching it hop around. Until Jojo ruined the fun(she decided to eat it).

(don't mind our lame backyard and the fact that Grayson doesn't have pants on,
he spilled on them and it was almost bedtime so I didn't bother putting any back on)
Boy all the way, laughing at farting noises.

Spoons And Forks

I have a confession to make. I have not let Grayson use spoons and forks because I am kinda weird about him getting super messy while he eats. He has used them but never with food he can make a mess with. But at 20 months I think it's time to get over my messy fear and let him feed himself with utensils.

This was the first time I let him use a spoon with "messy" food. He dripped a little just on the top of his jammies and for course got on his face but nothing too bad. So I thought maybe this wont be so bad.

This was the next time. I'm glad I thought to take his shirt off. He has it all over his face(hard to see but even in his eye lashes), hands covered in yogurt, all down his chest and his tray was covered.

This made me want to rethink to whole spoon and fork thing. He doesn't need to use utensils right?! I'll get over my fear...I hope...

3 Months

Well she finally did it, she has grown out of her newborn clothes and into her 0-3 month clothes. She is such a happy baby smiling all the time. She loves to sit up so the bumbo is her good friend. She is sleeping so good we are going to move her into her room at the end of the month. Goes to bed at around 8 and gets up between 7-8. She loves her brother and does well with him trying to play with her. She is a spiting queen, always blowing bubbles with her tongue. She is starting to lose her red hair in the back(we'll see what color grows back). She is just a sweet little girl growing up way too fast.

Bath Time

As I've said before Grayson loves to take baths. On occasion he even jumps in with daddy. Of course it's not a bath without sitting in some water so Grayson stopped the drain and had a shower and a bath at the same time.
This kid makes me laugh!

Yay! So after almost 2 years of wanting to make a headboard we did it!
I've been getting the stuff to make it for a few months but just got around to making.
It's nothing fancy but it works for us.
