Our Little boy is 2 months today!
I cannot believe how fast time has gone. It has already been two months! Ben is such a good baby and we love him more and more everyday. Here he is with his monkey Jack.

We went to his two month check up on Monday. He got three shots in the leg. It was a sad time. He cried for about 2 minutes and then was done. I was very glad that is all he cried. It is so sad watching your baby cry. I do not like it at all. He is a healthy boy and for that i am very thankful. He weighs 10 pounds and 10.5 ounces and 21 inches long. What a great bleesing he is for our little family.

My favorite Sister
I just love my sister Chelsie. She is my favorite sister. She is so nice and helps me with so much. She is very patient with me and helps me figure out how to work this whole blog thing. She taught me how to change my blog page so now I will probably change it every week. There are so many cute blog backgrounds it is hard to choose from just one.
If I had more pictures of Chels I would put them up for everyone to see how great she is, but I don't. So you will just have to look at these two over and over again.

P.S. Mandi if you want to be my favorite sister you can teach me how to put music on my blog...

Salt lake City Adventure
Our day started out that we were going to go to Soda Springs to look at the springs. Then we found out that we did not have to be back that night so we went to Salt Lake City instead. We started out going though Weston and over to Malad. Then headed to Salt Lake.
We stopped in Brigham City so Kyle could look at a geology hammer that he was so excited about. Kyle asked the guy if he had any rocks. Turns out he had a little museum full of rocks and fossils. It was pretty sweet to see what Kyle is so into and to see what he is talking about when he goes off on one of his geology spills.
It was a good fun trip to take with our little family. Ben did so well on the drive and loved walking around temple square.

Bens Baby Blessing Day
Today was such a great day. I am so glad that we live in Preston near so many or our family and friends, and they were able to share this special day with us. Ben was so cute in his little blessing outfit that Penelope Sunflower made for him, and his little blessing blanket that my mom made for him. It was so great having everyone come up and share this special day with us. I want to thank everyone who helped prepare food and clean up and set up. It made the day so nice and enjoyable and no stress for us. Thank you. Defiantly a very memorable day for us.

What a handsome little baby


USU Game
Tonight was Bens very first Utah State game. He did so well. He hardly cried and was awake for some of it. My sister Chels helped me make little earplugs for Ben and it turned out great.

Chels is a great photographer...
I love going to USU games and listening to the crowd chants. Most of them are not very nice, but they are funny.

Little Baby Bear
Everyday our little boy gets bigger and bigger. Today I found this little outfit tucked way back in his closet. When he was born it was way to big. Now it fits him just right. I love how he is starting to talk baby cooing talk to me and smile a little more in his sleep and while he is awake. He has smiled once for me just a little one. We are waiting for that first real big long smile.
Any day now... Any day...

Our Little Guy
I cannot believe how much I love this little guy. He is definitly our little minkee. Here he is with his new monkey we named Hank after Bens favorite nephew named Hank.

I love this picture and how happy Ben is in it. When he is not sleeping or crying he is in a happy good mood. I love those moments! They happen quite frequently. I am very happy about that.

Here is Ben with his favorite nephew named Jack. Jack loves to hold Ben and cuddle Ben and give Ben kisses all over.

This has got to be my favorite picture ever! I just love it!

We are so blessed to have this little boy in our family. I love being his mommy and getting to hold him everyday for pretty much the whole day. I do not feel bad about holding him all day ether. He is such a good little boy.

Happy New Year!
Another year has past and a start of a new year begins. I have a little confession as well as a resolution.

The confession... I have been looking forward to this new year and have been just counting down the days because I have been wanting to blog, but I have been wanting to start fresh. A brand new year gives me this chance. I have thought I will just start on the begining of the next month. But then I would just get all uncomfortable because it is just the start of a month not the year. Then I would have a lot of empty months before. I know I have a little thinking problem. So I have been really looking forward to this new year. All for the blogging aspects.

The resolution.... TO BLOG! So now that I have been waiting for this new year to start so I can start new on the blogging I am going to keep up with it. I wonder how many other people have that as their new year resolutions? Most likely all bloggers.

I have decided to make a list of pros and cons about doing a blog vs scrapbooks.
Pros on Blogging:

*You get to see everything that happened that year in just a little book
*It is prefect size and doesn't take up a whole room full of scrapbook supplies and paper and magazines to get cute ideas for scrapbook pages.
*You just have to think of what to write. Now I have not decided whether that is a pro or con.
*No racking you brain on how to do this page or that page.
* You do not you have to come up with so many layout ideas
* No making sure colors match and if there is enough ribbon to go around.
* No running out of paper when you just needed one more piece.
* Makes prefect Christmas present for parents and inlaws and you don't ever have to spend half the year thinking of what to get!
* All you have to do at the end of the year is print however many you want.
* You don't have to scrapbook.

The more I think about scrapbooking and what a big headache it is for me the more I love the thought of blogging. Maybe that can be my motivation to keep the blogs coming.

Cons to blogging:

* Trying to figure out what to write.
* Blogging
* Taking more pictures. This one may be a pro... More pictures are always good.
* Only so many fonts.

Looks like pros outweigh the cons. Happy New Year everyone! Hope this year is the best year ever for you all! I hope everyone gets to do a little of whatever they want and I hope everyone gets to go on a sweet vacation this year!
