Darling Girl

This little beauty is going to be 8 months old in just 5 days! I can not believe she is growing up this quickly! The last couple months have been so great and I know that the best of times are yet to come! She has developed quite a little personality- she is definitely a little firecracker! One of favorite things to do lately is to squeal (aka- scream) at the top of her lungs! I have never heard a baby be so loud or high pitched! Then after she gets a few good ones in and enough attention she just laughs and laughs. I have no idea how to stop this behavior, since she can't understand me yet and we obviously can't give an 8 month old a time out! Haha. So I will just laugh along with her and wait for it to pass. :) 
She loves vegetables...like all vegetables! She also loves oatmeal and rice cereal, but the only fruit she likes are pears. She doesn't even like apples! I call her my little green bean. :) 
Caden and her have gotten so close the last few months. They are two little peas in a pod and it couldn't bring more joy to my heart than to see them playing together. :) 
I am SO blessed and am taking in every second I get with my two babies as a stay at home momma. Thank the Lord! :)

It's Football Season!

 We were able to watch our first BSU game of the season yesterday. Every football season my whole family gathers at my grandma's house for food and football! I love it. Caden had a great time too. He got a new Boise State football that day and we brought it with us to Grammie's house.
He had a fun time watching the football on tv and playing some of our own football. We tried to take the opportunity to get a couple of family pics, but it is so hard to get them to sit still, look at the camera, and smile at the same time- but we still try! :)

Summer Time

Well, I can't say that things have been unusually busy around here...I just haven't been too good about keeping up this blog during these summer months! We have just been enjoying the hot weather by playing outside, going to the park, and eating a lot of ice cream! Haha.
Garrett and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary in August. We went to the fair and then ended the night by watching the sun set up at Table Rock. It was great to just have some time together away from all our responsibilities. :)
Avery is 7 months old now and is growing like crazy! She is sitting up by herself, rolls everywhere, and is just about to take off crawling. Plus, she is starting to drink out of a sippy cup and eat graham crackers. Can't believe in just 5 months she will be a year old!
Caden is as ornery as ever and the two of them together just crack me up. Caden can now count to 20 (he skips 14 and 15, though ) and his current "love" is hot air balloons. Which he calls "Bo-Highs". We were able to see some at the Spirit of Boise hot air balloon festival the other night. He loved them!
We all are just recovering from colds, so the last couple of weeks have been a bit rough around here. Caden's cold is hanging on, but hoping that we are all healthy soon!
Anyways, here are some recent photos :)
