Looking forward to...

I am so excited for Christmas!!! We have had so much going on the last couple of weeks, it really hasn't sunk in that Christmas is in 6 days!! It kind of makes me sad that it is going to be over, but we have a lot to look forward to in the next two weeks. On Tuesday we are flying to California to have Christmas with the Sorensen's. We get back on Sunday and fly out the next day for Lori's wedding. I will get to stay a week in Utah, but Trent has to go back early to work one day. Being responsible is not fun.

I really am missing the snow this time of year. The weather has been all over the place here. Yesterday it was cold and foggy and today it is 75 degrees and clear. So weird. This weekend we have our first club volleyball tournament. I am nervous because we will have Aiden with us, I hope we can keep him entertained and happy while coaching all day. I feel like after this weekend is over, I will finally be able to relax and enjoy the season. Something I have been thinking about lately is really living in the moment, whatever you are doing. I have been trying to apply this to my life, but I haven't been doing a very good job lately. If we are living in the moment, we will enjoy what we are doing and be so much happier. Those are just some of my random thoughts. I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season! We are thinking of all our friends and family who are far away and that we won't get to see this Christmas season. We love you!

9 month check up

I took Aiden in today for his nine month check up. Here are his stats: weight-15 lbs 14 oz, height- 28.5 inches. Surprisingly he is only in the 75th percentile for height and he is a skinny little boy for weight only in the 3rd percentile. The doctor was a little worried about him, but I am doing my best to fatten him up. He said the word chubby will never be used to describe him.

As you can tell by the picture, Aiden hits his head and face almost everyday on something new. The cut on his forehead happened when he fell over and hit the mirror in our bedroom. Sometimes I worry about the damage sustained to his head because he faceplants into the ground all the time, but he is pretty resilient.

Last week I had a very gross experience while changing a messy diaper. I gave Aiden my cell phone to play with so he would stay still while I changed him. The next thing I knew my cell phone had been plopped into the middle of the diaper with poo all over it. I kind of freaked out. I took the phone out and placed it on a bed of wet wipes and then finished changing him. I thoroughly disinfected the phone by using almost an entire package of clorox wipes and toothpicks to make sure every crevice was clean. Lets just say I won't be giving Aiden my cell phone during diaper changes anymore.

Happy Birthday Trent

Trent turned 25 two weeks ago. I can't believe how old we are! We had a pretty good day. I made breakfast, we went to church, and then we had Trent's birthday dinner. He wanted steak, baked potatoes, and carrots. We had some friends over for cake and ice cream and it was a good time. Here are some pictures from that night.

The Birthday Boy and Aiden.

I love Trent so much. He is such an amazing husband and father. He works so hard to support our little family. I am so grateful for Trent in my life. Happy Birthday!
