Seven Months

Well, it's been a while, I'm into my fourth week of jury duty, and I am so ready for it to be over! It all has been a good experience for me and my family. I have truly gained an even stronger testimony of the importance of mothers being home with their children. But also, I look up to those women who must work for their family, because this experience of being gone four days a week has been rough! My husband has been absolutely AMAZING! half the time I call him on my way home, to find out that he already picked up Brody...and then, when I get home the entire home is all clean! I love him so so much. Being gone this much has made our relationship that much stronger. We don't take for granite the small moments in the day to spend with each other, and our sweet little Brod! It is so hard though to see all the new things Brody is doing and then realize that I probably wasn't the first to see him do it. Although my awesome mother-in-law doesn't comment when he does do something new, just so Lance and I can see him do it and brag on him to everyone! She's way amazing! Well on to other things Lance's baby sister is coming home MAY 9th from her mission in Salt Lake! We are so so excited to see Kimberly! And for Brody to finally meet his other Auntie!



Seven Months!

Brody turned Seven Months on Easter Sunday! I can't even believe it! Seven months just sounds so old! I guess because he's on the downhill of his first year! Sorry for the picture overload, but I've got to make up for lost time!

Brody is scooting/crawling everywhere! And putting everything in his mouth! So we've got to baby proof the house now!
He LOVES his food! He eats just about everything...he doesn't enjoy green stuff but he will eat it and crinkle his nose the whole time! It's hilarious!
He also LOVES snack time! Anything that he can get his hands on and into his mouth without it being taken away told, "No Brody, you can't eat that!"

And last but not least, Last night BRODY SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT!!!! YAHOO!!!! all I have to say is...pure bliss!

We love our little man and Love watching him grow up!

Yah for sleeping through the night! That is seriously awesome! He's such a handsome lil guy. I'm glad you are almost done with jury duty, sounds like it's been rough (but kinda good in a different way too).
