I can't believe this cute little boy is two months old today and I'm lucky enough to be his mom! Lance and I have had so much fun watching him grow and learn new things...

What I Love about Brody...

1. He is so happy in the mornings! We always brings Brody into our room and we play until Lance has to go to work

2. The first time Brody smiled at me was such an awesome feeling! It's
such a joy never gets old!

3. Brody does this thing where he sucks on his top is hilarious! I've noticed he does
it when he's either hungry or tired. (I tried to upload a video...but I'm technologically

4. Lance and I LOVE his exhausted, tired cry...(it sound cruel) but it is the cutest thing
ever! He will smile and coo and then suddenly his face changes to this pouty lip cry. And
he will flip back and forth from that until he either cries nonstop for food or falls asleep.

5. Brody is getting close...or starting to get close to rolling over. He basically throws his
legs and arms up in the air and rolls to the side!... then I push him all the way over. And
he smiles SO big!

Well, we had his 8 week appointment last Friday. He is 26in long and weighs a healthy 12lbs 13oz. He is filling out and his cheeks just keep growing....the better to kiss! And then he got three shots...I have never seen him cry so hard. It was so terrible...and I bawled my eyes out. But the nurse reassured me that I wasn't the first mom to cry. And I will probably do it every appointment.

Happy Two Months Brody!

Recent Happenings

It's been getting pretty cold the last two weeks and the fall colors are beautiful. I'm not sure how I feel about the cold yet though...Because the monsoons were so wonderful here this summer. But I am loving that we've been able to make fires. We took some quick pictures before we went to carve some pumpkins...

And yes, we grew three of the four in this picture. I'm pretty proud of that...haha. It was a lot of fun. This was the first night that it was pretty cold. So we got to wear sweaters and Brody wore his cute hoodie.
Lance wasn't able to be home for Halloween...but he shot us some food! ha. No, but after such an eventful weekend hunting, :( and 15 min. till sundown Saturday night he shot his deer at 482 yards. We almost lost it though, when it started rolling down the cliff, and fortunatly got caught in a bush. We made jerky all Sunday and Monday, which I must say is AMAZING.
And then this last weekend my sister and her husband came down to S.V. for his hunt. It was fun for us to hang out and the cousins too. Here's Brody and Tate...They are going to be good friends growing up!
