6 Months Old

I can't believe how time flies by! Kason is already 6 months old. He is rolling over, and sitting with help, although he prefers to stand or lay down. And he is eating cereal and squash. He loves the Gerber Graduates little puffs too. I just can't believe he is such a big boy now. The last couple of days he has been eating his toes. It is just the cutest thing. He just lifts his legs up and sticks his foot in his mouth. He is so flexible! Well, since Kason's birthday is right after Christmas, I have decided to give him a half birthday. I tried this with Makenna and Wes just made fun of me. But with Kason this is a must. So he got a few presents and a cake that he didn't get to eat! I'm so mean! I make the kid a cake but I wouldn't share!

Here he is with his cake and he is about to eat his toes again!

He got jammies

And a cool tool bench toy

And his first sippy cup today. He can suck the water out really good but he won't swallow it. He just lets it run down the front of him. Silly boy!

He is such a wiggle worm. I couldn't get him to sit still for a picture. This is the best I could get!

Also, here are his 6 months stats

Height 26 inches 34.67%

Weight 16.14 lbs 25.27%

Head 17 inches 33.74%

Man I just love this little guy so much! He has the cutest little laugh and smile. It is adorable! I just can't even imagine life with out him. Weston says I am a baby hog and I totally admit that I am! But I just can't stop holding and snuggling him. He is just the sweetest little guy and I'm so glad he is apart of our family.

Round-up Week

Last week was a very busy week. It was the annual Lehi Round-up. We had things going on almost every day. It was a very crazy but very fun week. I was able to get some pictures of all the festivities but not all of them.

Monday - We went and had a picnic in the park with my family and listened to Lehi's got talent.

Tuesday - I took Kason to the baby contest

Wednesday - We decorated the Southwick's house to get ready for Weston's brother to get home from his mission

Thursday - We went to the airport to pick up Weston's parents and his brother Cameron

Isn't she such a doll! She was so excited for Cam to get home but she got very nervous and shy when it came down to it.

Kason meeting his uncle Cam for the first time!

Thursday - We went to the stock parade
Family night at the rodeo

Makenna and Avery

Kason was a handful at the rodeo but I'm glad he got to go for his first time.

Just getting ready for everything to start

The cutest little cowgirl ever!

Friday - Miniature parade and Weston and I went on a date to the rodeo

Saturday - We went to the Grand Parade

Kason just hanging out again! He had fun watching everything and eating snow cones!

Makenna loves the horses

We watched the parade at Shane and Cali's. Makenna loves Shali to pieces!

We had so much fun this year. The last night of the rodeo they motorcycles even did a back flip. it was pretty sweet! Makenna loved to do and see everything. And Kason was a good sport to be carried all around. He was a good boy. But it was lots of fun and we can't wait for next year! We just love all the parades, rodeo's and activities.

Who is who?

Thursday night at the Rodeo was "Tough enough to wear Pink" night and I thought Kason was pretty tough. So I put a pink shirt on him under is outfit. But when I put it on him Weston and I both about died! He looked so much like Makenna. So I had to go find a bow to put on him. I wanted to take a picture and compare with Makenna's pictures and I didn't have pictures of her with out a bow on. So what does everyone think? Don't they look so much alike? Who is who?

Strawberry Days

Last week was Pleasant Grove's Strawberry Days and my little sister invited us to go to the carnival. This was Makenna's first time at a carnival. We let her ride the carousel at the mall once but that is the extent of rides for her. But she loved it! She wanted to try them all. She didn't even get scarred on the big caterpillar ride. I on the other hand was terrified watching her go up and down and around. It was such a big ride for a 3 year old. But she loved it all. Thanks Shellie for the invite! We all had so much fun!

Kason loves Snow Cones! He just chows down on them!

Makenna loved riding in the cars

This was a little train she rode on

Swimming Lessons

We put Makenna in swimming lessons this year and it was so much fun. It was actually a parent/tot class so I was taking swimming lessons too! It lasted for two weeks but just ended yesterday. Weston came over one day and took pictures and then he even took Makenna to her class last Friday. She had lots of fun and learned so much. She has become a lot braver in the water. She can jump from the side of the pool, climb out and blow bubbles. She still doesn't like to get her head wet all the way but she has improved a ton since we started. So here are a few pics! Also thanks to Weston's mom and my sister for watching Kason while we went!

Makenna would pretend to be Ariel while she was swimming
Practicing to dive down and pick the toy up from the bottom of the pool.

She was supposed to be gliding on her tummy over to me

Story Time

Today Makenna, Kason and I went to story time at the library with my friend Heather and her son. It was pretty good. They read a few stories and sang some songs. Afterwards I was talking to my little sister on the phone and she said "YOU went to the library!" Apparently it was a big shock to her. So I was telling Weston about that and he agreed with her. He said well it's not really your kind of place is it? Well to be honest I had no clue what I was doing, I couldn't find any Curious George books for Makenna and my library card had expired. But hey, at least I had one! And I want to go back again in a few weeks, it was something fun for Makenna to do and to get out of the house. We will definitely be going during the winter.

5 Years

Today is our 5th wedding anniversary! It's just crazy how the time flies. When I think back on it, it seems so long ago but at other times it feels just like yesterday. In the last 5 years I have graduated from UVSC, Weston has graduated from BYU, we have bought our first home and we have the two cutest and most wonderful children. I really can't think of anything that could be better. And through all this I have had the greatest guy by my side. There are a million things that I love about Wes but I thought about 5 great things about him since its our 5 year anniversary.
  1. He is such a hard worker and never gives up

  2. He is so smart

  3. He is so kind and selfless. He puts everyone before himself

  4. He loves his kids and is so great with them

  5. He has so much patients (especially with me!)

Don't we look so young!

Happy Anniversary Weston! Love you!

A day of First's

On Friday we had a big day. Kason ate cereal for the first time and he went swimming for the first time too! He just loved his cereal. You should have seen him diving for the spoon. I couldn't get it to him fast enough. It was so adorable! Then we went swimming. Makenna had been asking forever to go so we went on Friday night. She was really timid and would get out of the water every five minutes to dry off. So I got her enrolled for lessons in two weeks. Kason on the other hand just loved it. He giggled and splashed and just had the time of his life. And we finally got our garden planted. This isn't our first garden but it was the first time Makenna helped with it. She was such a good helper. So all in all, it was a fun weekend!

Here is Makenna pushing the seeds into the dirt with her finger

Kason's just hanging out!

Wes and Makenna. She had a tight grip on him most the time.

Kason liked the slide. Makenna even warmed up enough to it and went down a couple times.

Makenna, Kason and Weston

Diving for the spoon!

Such a big boy!
