Monday Night Fun!

On Monday night we joined two other families from church and went to the Utah Cultural Arts Center. It was a night of music and dance from Brazil. Both of the wives in the other families served their missions in Brazil. We took lots of blankets and spread out on the grass. It was so much fun! We have made some really good friends in our ward. There are so many young couples with babies that live on our street and the next street over. As you can see from the picture below that Zachary has made a friend too. That would be Jozie. She was born about two weeks after Zachary.

This was their second "date". Their first was a walk thru the neighborhood a few weeks back. They really get along so well. Jozie is always drooling all over Zachary. Who can blame her?! He is pretty dang cute! =)

Zachary seemed to enjoy the music. It was quite loud but I think that he liked the beat of the drums. Overall it was a fun night and a great way to enjoy some time together as a family!

A New Rule....

I think that there should be a new rule....once you become a mother you don't ever ever ever ever get sick. How many mothers would agree with me on that one? All in favor say YES!!!! Being sick, how should I say it.....TOTALLY SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Granted I am not a good sick person (my husband can attest to that), but goooodness being sick and trying to take care of a baby at the same time can be a hard thing. Joe's only comment to me is, "Welcome to Parenthood!" BLAH! He pulled the ol' switch-a-roo on me...I'm only allowed to use that comment on him. Unfortunately, the both of us have been sick for the last couple of days. The laundry is piled high, along with the dishes in the sink. I even think that our house sticks a bit. But maybe that is from being cooped up for a couple of days. As if being sick wasn't enough it has been well over a hundred degrees here for way too long. Who wants to have the flu in this kind of weather (or anykind of weather for that matter)? Told you I wasn't a good sick person.....

Zachary has been smiling and cooing so much the last couple of weeks. It is the kind that just make your heart melt. I know that I am biased due to being his mother but you have to admit that this is one cute kid! Just look at him!!!!!!!! Anyhow, anytime that we try to get a picture of Zachary smiling he stops as soon as the camera is put in front of him. Maybe he is just distracted by the camera, who knows? Joe wanted to play with Zachary when he got home from work yesterday. So I thought that I would bust out the camera and try to sneak some pictures of him smiling. How do you like the result? We actually got his first laugh with the picture below. I cannot wait for him to giggle and laugh all of the time!

Nap Time

I came home yesterday from taking the sister missionaires to a baptism to find Joe and Zachary asleep on the couch. Of course I had to take a picture! Joe had just got back from Scout Camp with the young men when I got a call from the sisters asking for a ride. I guess Joe was so exhausted (Zachary too) that they just fell asleep.
And here is an update on our little man....he had his two month check-up earlier this week. He did so good! After his five shots I think that I was having a harder time than he was. He was asleep by the time we got to the car and continued to be his happy little self for the remainder of the day. No fever or tears. I was so proud of him! He weighed in at 14 pounds and 11 ounces and I think that his length was 24 3/4. We love our little guy! He just gets cuter every day. I mentioned to Joe the other day how much Zachary looks like him. Then in his most loving/sarcastic way Joe said that Zachary looks like me too....(dramatic pause) when he is crying and upset. Thanks honey....love you too! But then tonight at dinner he started to fuss a little bit and I did see myself in him! His little nose gets scruched up and there I was! Let's hope that one day he will smile and he'll look a little like me then as well.
