One cute baby!

I just love this picture! He's so cute! He loves his new exersaucer and gets so excited when he's in there. He squels with joy and talks to himself. There is nothing cuter! We just love this kid so much!

Ode to St. George

I love love love St. George. Ever since we got back from our Easter break there I have been trying to convince Jared to move there when we're done. He's not convinced, but I'm going to keep working on it. Here's some pictures of us hiking "The Crack". We had a great time with the kids running around the red rocks. We brought Gavin and Dana carried him in his baby bjorn. He slept through the whole thing.

Hiking in St. George

This looks scarier than it was. Alissa climbed this ledge, but what you can't see is Jared right behind her.

Peek a boo

This kid can get anywhere.

Me and the girls.

Pics from Utah

Gavin is getting so big and cuter by the minute! He's interacting and has the best laugh.

He is is just hanging out at Mimi and Dee's

My two boys!

This was before our Busath debacle.

I thought this was funny. Jared and Gavin having a moment and then there's me just following procedure when someone says smile.

Trip to Utah

Last month we were able to go home to Utah, TWICE! The first was for my sweet oma's funeral and the second time was for Jared's spring break. Here's some pictures from the first trip home.......

Because I came into town on such short notice I didn't have time to tell everyone, so I called Dana and told her to meet me at McDonald's where I was having lunch with my family and to not tell her kids, so I could surprise them with Gavin. She sent me a text when they pulled up and I walked out with Gavin in my arms and when they walked in I said, "Hey what are you guys doing here?" It was so funny to see their faces and such a fun surprise! This is the picture from McDonald's.

This was Gavin's first sleep over with a cousin. Alissa stayed with me and helped out with Gavin. I'm so glad she likes him now. I think it's safe to say that she LOVES him!

Davis and Gavin. After Davis saw Gavin the first time he said to his mom, Dana, " Grab him and run!"

Gavin LOVES his Mimi! He gets really excited when his Mimi holds him and sings to him.

Gavin got a lot of attention while we were home. It was so fun for him to be around so many people that love him. It really makes me home sick and wish we lived closer, but we'll just have to come up with more excuses to visit.

Gavin's blessing

This was Gavin's outfit for his blessing. He looked so cute! Thanks Dana and Steve! We were so lucky to be able to go home and bless him around our friends and family. Jared did an amazing job and it was so special to watch him give our baby such a great blessing. They had a great moment together and I know that they will both treasure it for many many years.

I thought this pose was hilarious! Jared thinks it's far too unnatural, but it's kind of like those baby posters where they're playing poker, or driving cars and in this case posing for play girl. It's kind of funny. Don't worry, I'm not like Angela from "The Office" I will not be purchasing posters of babies playing the saxophone or anything like that. I just thought this was funny of Gavin.

First Photo Shoot, Take One

I know that everyone thinks that their baby is the cutest, but I'm confident that you will all agree that it just doesn't get cuter than this! Gavin is getting so big and if you can believe it, cuter by the minute. He is the biggest joy in our lives and everyday I feel so lucky to be his mom. This past week he started playing with his toes and having full baby conversations with himself. It is so cute and fun to see him change and grow.

They just keep getting better!

Finding his toes.

Hi, I'm in kindergarten.
