Happy Birthday Brandon!!

Today is Brandon's (Ryan's little brother) birthday. He is ten years old and growing so quick. He is such an awesome kid and I am so glad that he is my brother too. He is such a great uncle to Blake and always calls to ask how little Blakey is doing. We are so excited to be able to go and see him and the rest of the family in Hawthorne this weekend to go trick or treating for Halloween. I just wanted to tell Brandon how awesome he is and that we are way excited to see him soon. Happy Birthday B-dog!!!

Cold Applesauce!!

So Blake loves his fruit and especially applesauce. This morning I fed him some bananas and he was still hungry so I decided to grab the applesauce that was in the fridge. Usually we warm it up a little so it is not so cold but he was screaming in baby words "NOW MOMMY, NOW!! I'M STILL HUNGRY!!" Ok Ok, so when I gave him the applesauce and put it in his mouth he kept making this adorable "this is to cold" face. I just had to get it on camera.

Ok I know everyone did this as a child... Blake: Mom do you like seafood? Me: Ewww gross no way. Blake: Well I do.... SEE FOOD :) Me: You are too cute!!!

Here is a few pictures of Blake getting ready for the winter in Hawthorne and Logan. He has never really experienced cold:)

Here is a new game we are going to play. I want everyone that sees this to play if you can. It' s called the caption game. Whan do you think that Blake is thinking in this picture? I'm thinking like "I really wish I knew where I put my last crunchy star....Sigh."

Through the exer-saucer!!!

So the other day I was watching T.V. and when I looked down I saw that Blake had crawled into his saucer toy to try to get a piece of food. I was amazed that he actually got into it and then proceeded to watch him crawl out the other side. Don't worry I got it all documented in pictures which now you can all witness for yourselves. Also for the past couple months Blake has only worn onesies to bed because it is so hot here. This same night it was pretty cold outside so I decided that Blake could actually were real pajamas. I think these pajamas are adorable personally but you be the judge. Anyway here is Blake's journey through the exersaucer. Enjoy!!

Here is a cute after bath picture also.

Blake's First Word!!

Blake has said his first word and he enjoys saying it all day long which is so cute. "Dada, dada, dada, dad." He sure loves his dad. I was on the phone with Ryan and said to Blake, "Dad is calling" and this is what Blake said to me........

I am glad this is his first word because I told Ryan that when Blake wakes up in the middle of the night and starts calling out Dada it would be his Dada that he would want to come get him. So I think that Blake can take his sweet time to learn Mama and I am more than OK with that. (Only because he doesn't need to know Mama to get me to come to his every beck and call. This little boy has me wrapped around all 10 fingers.....which is also the case when he grabs a handful of my hair but that is a painful different story.)

A day at the Park!!

Every Wednesday morning the women in my ward have a play day at the park for all of their children. Blake and I have never gone before because it is always during his nap time. Today however Blake had slept in and we had some time to kill before his first nap so I decided we should go and play.

We had so much fun at the park and Blake loved playing with the other kids. Blake is not to fond of the grass and gets a super cute funny face when i put him on to it. On the other hand when he gets over the shock of the prickly feeling he is so mesmorized by it and loves to pull it out.
We also went on the swings for the first time and he was almost falling asleep in my lap because he is used to his swing at home and how relaxing it is.

We had a great morning and in the five minutes it took to drive home Blake had fallen asleep in his carseat. He is now napping peacefully and hopefully he will take an extra long nap so I can clean the house. Here are some pictures from this morning. If you double click on some of them you can see his bottom teeth.
