My Little Helper

Allen is our little mover! He's not quite up to walking yet, but he is a champ at crawling. And man is he fast! The first few weeks in our new house I've spent so much time chasing after him--in a useless attempt to keep him from getting into things. HAH!

I'd like you to know I finally came to my senses. I figured, "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em"! Now, for the most part, I let him do all the exploring and investigating he'd like to do. And now I have the greatest little helper! His specialties are loading/unloading the dishwasher, loading/unloading the laundry baskets, and loading/unloading the kitchen drawers. Are you seeing a theme here?




(He's definitely more interested in the unloading than he is in the loading. Can ya blame him?)

He certainly keeps me busy playing catch-up but I love watching him learn and figure things out!

We've Moved...Again!

A few months ago we said a bittersweet goodbye to our first home in Orem: (Our condo was the bottom one on the left)

In August, we officially relocated to our new home in Spanish Fork! We had a pretty crazy summer filled with lots of family time, home improvement projects, packing, cleaning, and moving. I think we are finally feeling settled and are absolutely loving our new home. We are so thankful for our WONDERFUL families that helped us in SO MANY ways this summer! Your constant willing service has been such a blessing--we are so humbled and so grateful. We couldn't have done it without you!

Fun In The Sun

Last Christmas we got passes to Seven Peaks and we have been putting them to good use this summer. I'm not much of a waterpark fan, but taking Allen to play in the water has been an absolute blast! We pretty much stick to the kiddie pool & the lazy river. Allen couldn't be happier. He splashes and splashes and I'm getting some much needed sun :)

Baby's First Haircut

We've had quite a few "firsts" around here lately. It has been so fun and exciting watching Allen learn and develop in so many new ways. This "first", however, made me just a little bit sad. I procrastinated as long as I could, but he was long overdue for his very first haircut. Allen wasn't especially pleased with having to sit still for this so we had to get pretty creative trying to entertain him so Grammy could cut his hair. Now my little baby looks more like a little boy (which makes me SO sad), but we love his new haircut! Thanks Grammy!

Part Monkey

Allen has been working his way into the world of solid foods. And man does he love it! Bananas are definitely one of his favorites. I'm starting to wonder if Allen is part monkey...

A New Pair of Specs

Allen LOVES wearing glasses and hats. He just thinks its so funny. We usually just let him wear our sunglasses, but I found these foam glasses and he had such a great time playing with his Aunt.

Opening Day

Opening Day! After a long season of basketball (my least favorite of sports), baseball is finally here! I'm not sure what to expect from our Dodgers this summer, but I'm so glad the season is finally here!

Dodgers will be on @6pm tonight.
