One Month and What a Blessed Day

What a wonderful day! Well, Lance's Aunt, Uncle, and cousins came down on Saterday. We all hung out and watched the ASU game. We had such a fun time! Then that evening my brother and sister-in-law came, and all of went to dinner. On Sunday, the rest of my family came, it was so good to see all of them. We went to church, and had so much family and support there. Since I was the music chorister, I was lucky to sit close when Lance gave Brody such an amazing blessing. But it so hard to lead the music after hearing such special words...but I sniffled my way through it! After church, we went to our house and had some incredible spanish food and had a fun time with our family! Thank you to Adele for taking pictures and letting me steal these first three from your blog!

Also, Sunday was Brody's One Month Birthday! He has grown so so much and we are having so much fun with him. He has started "talking" with us and giving us cute little side smiles. He's been so good at sleeping 4 and 5 hrs at night, but he has basically been doing that since he was born....I know your all jealous! What can I say...he just knows that his mom is very grouchy without sleep.

Brody in October

This sure has been an eventful month...
Our pumpkins and corn were finally all done. The pumpkins...as you can see...turned out great. We got about six of them! However, the corn did alright. The worms got to most of it, but they made for awesome fall decorations when dried out!
This is brody chillin in his stroller. We go on a walk almost everyday, only around the circle to the mailbox and back. But it's good for both of us to get out of the house!
Every morning Brody wakes up around 6:00 or 7:00. I'm still a little tired, so he loves to just sit in his swing or lay on the floor and watch good 'ole Sesame Street. He seriously loves it! So that's just some of our excitement for this month, and it's only going to get busier, but I guess that's how life goes!

Sunday....Day of Rest?.....Or Not!

I'm such a "schedule" person and getting used to being so flexible has been pretty difficult. So of course "Saterday..." definitely "...was a special day." I tried my hardest to ready myself for our first Sunday back to church. One of my pet peeves is being late. Therefore, Lance's shirt was ironed, the diaper bag was stocked, and my alarm was set.
We started off the morning giving Brody a bath...I LOVE the smell of clean baby, it's my favorite! He hates baths, but who would like being undressed and cold. But afterward, I wrap him up, hold him, and he loves to just air out!

I fed him right before we left, because I'm the music director in Sacrament Meeting (go ahead...give it to me...it's an old lady calling...But I love it.) and I wouldn't be able to leave during Sacrament. But don't fret, we had a bottle just in case.
We took some quick pictures before....and then we were off...

Alright, it went pretty smooth. Just one poopy diaper that made him mad, between the sacrament and the first speaker. Perfect timing. And everyone loved him and just thought he was the cutest...which he is. And then Brody and I went home, and Lance went to Young Mens.
So I would say the day was successful!
...Mission Accomplished...(how am I going to do this every Suday...I'm gonna be a nut case!)
