He's getting so big!

Braxton updates!

First smile was Feb 10th! He can almost completely sit up in his Bumbo chair! He loves to taste new things Daddy has given him a taste of Chocolate ice cream and Pancake syrup! Yesterday I was eating string cheese and he was smacking his lips at me so I put it in his mouth and he was licking it like crazy! It was so cute! .
Here are Some of my fav. pics from the past couple weeks.....

This is how he likes to sleep on the couch, with his head butted right up to the arm, it doesn't matter how many times I pull him away he works his way back up there. :)

Josh was changing his diaper and he grabbed Josh's glasses right off his face! It was so funny!!
He was being a fuss gut and so Josh thought that he would try to lay him with the dogs! Surprisingly he calmed down and was hanging out with the boys!

I was in a panic trying to get all my papers corrected for report cards and Josh was making dinner so he set Braxton down my me.....he was just chilling watching T.V. until.......

he fell asleep!
Daddy giving his boy a shoulder ride! :)

This is how well he can sit in his BUMBO!After church Josh thought it would be funny to see what Buddy would do with his dress shirt on....he was such a proper little guy he just sat there!

Presidents day weekend

So it's been a little hectic since I've been back at work, though things should start to calm down now! We took a trip up to Northern Utah Presidents day weekend- we stayed with my girlfriend Nicole on Friday night, the weather was really good until we hit Roy then it was a blizzard. Well it snowed all night and all morning the drive from Ogden to SLC took us over 2 hours on Saturday morning. Josh has vowed that he will never live in Ogden because of all the snow!! ( I tried to tell him it wasn't all that bad to live there, you get used to all the snow! ) Sat and Sunday we stayed with Josh's twin sis and her husband- we went to the Cheesecake factory for Dinner on V-day! It was quite crowded at one point we heard them say it was a 4 hour wait....AHH good thing we only had to wait a little under 2 hours. Dinner was fab and the cheesecake was an amazing late night treat! I can't ever eat my whole entree let alone desert :)
I got the white chocolate Raspberry it was amazing! I think it is one of my favorites. Well Braxton got to meet more of his family on the trip --

Anyone who knows Grandpa Jack would appreciate this picture....when they came home from church this is what he found. ( This is g-pa's chair)

Catch up with Braxton!

Doing laundry requires two hands, so I put him in with the clothes! Daddy hanging out with Braxton while mommy gets ready for church--
After church mommy didn't feel good so she took a nap, dad thought Braxton should hang out with her!! :)
Look how big he's getting he is sitting up all on his own! Well he does have the help of the couch ;-)
I just love this little outfit, he's such a pimp in his sweats--it even has a hood!
K this is one of my fav's he's looking right at me! and oh how cute is he--well I'm possibly biased but that is my maternal right:)

So I'm making dinner in the kitchen and I lay him down for some tummy time, I turned around to find Jake and Buddy hanging out protecting their little bro! How sweet of them:)

Our Monday drive

We took a drive up the mountain towards Kolob yesterday and got to look at all the deer! We passed like 200 or so, but this heard was the biggest and had the two biggest bucks! Josh was dying that he couldn't grab his gun and get himself a trophy! One of the bucks was a 7pt the other a 6pt~ I myself was more interested in all of the baby deer! They were making the cutest noises! :)
