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.

We've Moved

Here are my boys helping me pack. Best little helpers ever! Well, let's be honest, they didn't help much but they kept me in good spirits with all the stress of moving and getting our condo rented :)

Over the last year, Parker and I had been discussing what would be best for our little family's future and what steps we'd need to take to get a house. After much discussion and praying we decided to rent our condo and move in with his parents so we could finish saving up for a down payment. We have such wonderful parents and families. We're so thankful for ALL the incredible work and help my family put forth in helping us pack, move, clean, make repairs, and keeping us from going crazy during this process. And we're so thankful for the Ainge's who are welcoming us into their home. Thank you so very much.

We have LOVED our time in our condo. It has been a perfect haven for our family and we will truly miss our first home. It was hard to let go of, but we have some wonderful memories that will always be with us.

7 Months

My little bug is 7 months old!

Allen wasn't quite able to sit up on his own when he was 6 months so we waited a few weeks and got some photos taken when he was 7 months. My most wonderful friend Valerie gave me a photo session gift certificate as a baby gift when I had Allen. Such a great gift! I was so excited to get some new photos (I just can't seem to get enough of them) and her sister-in-law Brooke did the most FANTASTIC job! I'm going to have the hardest time choosing which ones to get printed. She's posted a few on her blog:

I know I'm a little biased but you should seriously stop whatever you're doing and go look at these photos. :)

A few things about Allen @ 7 Months:

He's an ace at sitting up on his own now.
He's rolling over. Mostly back to tummy but he's working on tummy to back as well.
He loves to be tickled and is pretty much ticklish everywhere.
Had his first really tramatic experience at the doctor's office: he had to have his blood drawn and he's so chubby that they couldn't find a vein so they had to keep poking him over and over. (I'm not sure who was more tramatized--me or Allen.)
Loves Krug. He gets so excited whenever he sees him.
He's started on baby food. Peas and squash are his favorite. Hates rice cereal.
Likes all electronic things--specifically tv, remotes, phones and calculators. (I really didn't think I'd have to worry about monitoring tv time for a baby!)
He's really started recognizing people and gets so excited when he sees family members he loves.

Tubby Time

More tubby photos! Allen continues to LOVE bath time. He's got a few bath toys, but he mostly just likes to splash and talk while he's in there.Each night when we start running the bath water Krug comes running in--he always thinks it's his turn for a tub. Poor guy gets a little neglected. The other night he came running in as usual so I just plopped him in there with Allen. I don't think it's quite what he had in mind but he seemed to enjoy the attention, and Allen always loves having Krug around :)
