House finally decorated

We finally decorated the house. We have lived in our house almost 2 years with minimal decor. Before I left for Georgia we gave our good friend, Kasi Miller(a very talented interior decorator), a budget and told her to do her thang. When I returned home this is what I found. I love it. Thanks Kasi.

Lil B update

Here are just pics of Brecken from the last month. I can't believe how fast he is growing. At his 4 month check-up he weighed 14 lbs (34%) 25 in. long (73%). He has 2 bottom teeth and is getting more. He is always so smiley and happy. I couldn't ask for a better baby!!!

He loves his Minky blanket. Every night when he goes to bed he just rubs it all over his face.

Getting ready to go swimming at grandma's.

I found him like this last night when I went to go check on him. Faced buried in his "Minky"

Summer Trip to Georgia

My annual summer trip back home this year was fun. It was Brecken's first airplane ride and he did great. Slept the whole flight there and back. He did really well, which I'm glad(didn't want to be the person with the crying kid the whole flight). While there I taught swim lessons, hung out with the fam, had a baby shower for my sister (her 5th child. Finally got a boy.) Here are a few pics from the trip.

Here a few pics from Melissa's baby shower
Doesn't she look happy! (I'm sure she'll kill me for putting this on here)
This is my brother's wife, Amber. She was only a few days from giving birth. Glad I got to meet Paisley before I headed back home.

While in Georgia, discovered my sisters kids sleep in the strangest place. Loralei fell asleep at the kitchen table while coloring & Ethan fell asleep in the bathtub. Crazy kids!!!!

One thing I miss about Georgia besides my family, is a good storm. It was raining so hard, you could hardly see out the front windshield. I miss sitting on a front porch in a rocking chair just watching the sky fall out.

Yeah! I'm finally updating our blog. there are 4 new posts, so make sure you scroll down to get em all. Just a heads up, picture overload.

Brecken's Blessing

Brecken was blessed at church today. Doug did a great job. We had lots of family & friends there, and are grateful for all those who came and participated. We had a little luncheon at Doug's mom house afterwards.

The month of May

My sister came out to visit the first of May. We really had a great time. It was fun having her here. While she was here, Ironman was in town, so we went and hung out at the finish line for a while to watch those AMAZING athletes finish. Here are just some random pics of Brecken throughout the month of May. He is growing so fast.

Waiting to go to church.

Bath time!! Brecken LOVES the bath. Every time he gets in, he just kicks and splashes. That's my water boy!

He loves to sit in his swing or lay on the floor and just stare and laugh at the ceiling.

My sweet boy!

Grandma came to visit

My mom flew out 2 weeks after he was born to help me out. I'm really glad she came. I was glad to have the help. While she was here, we went down to Gilbert to do his newborn pics(saved for a later post.) Here are some pics from that visit.
