Memorial Day

On Memorial Day we had a stake picnic at a local park, it was pretty fun... Mason was a little grumpy from his lack-o-naps but otherwise a lovely day. We greased Mason up with sunscreen, but Danny and I forgot ourselves so we came home sunburned, oops!

In the buddy bag
"big guy, little guy" aren't they cute
my "guys" are so cute!
not so sure about the sunglasses


Every Wednesday some mommies from my ward meet to let the kids run amok. It's great for mom and kids; here are some cute pictures from the park.

7 months

* Mom and Dad started giving you solid food, but you don't like it. You gag yourself, spit it up and keep you mouth clamped closed... we have to trick you to open your mouth so we can shove food in

* We have started to do sign language, you haven't signed back yet but you laugh when we sign mommy and daddy

* You have started to sleep on your side and turned so your face is in the bumper and your feet are up resting on your bumper( and through the slats of the crib)... it is really cute and mommy has figured out if you get your self in that position then you will take a longer much better nap :)

* You can roll over from your back to your tummy, though mommy did not witness it because you were in your bed. I heard you playing a kicking around in your bed before your nap then all the sudden I heard you screaming... I went up and saw you on your tummy and your arm was stuck so you couldn't roll back over. I have tried to get you to do again but no luck.

* You like to pull Ralph's tail

* You now take baths in the sink and not in your baby tub, as in the picture above

* I am not sure how much you weigh ( I am guessing a little over 20 lbs) but you are 29 inches long, so that means you will need a new car seat soon, boo :(

* Oh and you cut your first tooth

Happy Mother's Day!

My first mother's day was wonderful! It all started a couple of weeks ago when I came home and Mason's hands had a blue tint to them. I kinda freaked out wondering what Danny let Mason get into and finally he gave in and showed me a piece of paper with two hand prints in blue paint. Awe how cute, so when I came down on mother's day I saw (below) the page with hand prints, how cute....

Then later he gave me this picture, the one above was just a practice one, and he used as a joke... but I still think it is cute and will keep it.

Danny also got me some flowers and made us a scrumptious dinner!

Steak, mashed potatoes and salad :) yummmy!

Happy Mother's day! I am so grateful to me a mom and I love Mason so much. I especially love Danny for making this day so special for me :) Yay, I love my boys!!!!
