All gone with no going back!!!

This is a hard post to do. Last night I did something that I do not regret, but it was pretty traumatic. I will just let the pictures tell the story.

My baby is now totally gone. He now "looks" like a toddler. Isn't it crazy what a little hair will do for someone? We really wish that we could have kept his little fro, but there was a huge baldspot in the back that just wouldn't grow fast enough. Jon isn't too fond of the bald head, but I just think he is absolutely adorable. **And hair does grow back :)** Look at that perfectly round head!!!

This last picture is JT finding the TP. I am amazed he hasn't found it before now. lol

Update from the past week

Uncle Ramsey came home... Memorial Day Weekend... and JT's many adventures. Enjoy our past week in pictures.

Wii had fun!

Last night Megan and DJ brought their wii over to my parents house. DJ got it for his birthday that is coming up. We had so much fun bowling. I only played one game because I had other things to do, but I kicked everyone's trash. Check out the pictures of our great form. In the score picture... I am player #1 :)

Two Words...

I'm Hooked!!!!!

Everyone is reading or has read this series. My mother in law even has it at her house and I was going to borrow them, but never got around to it. I started the first book and had a hard time getting into it, but the other night I sat down and couldn't put the book down. I had 100 pages left to read and we were at Deseret Book today and had my mom buy the second book so I could start it when I finished. (Which I did tonight) There is something about this book that just pulls you in. It has made me realize that the "spark" in my marriage is very dim :) After 8 years and many trials and than having kids it tends to do that. That is my goal for this month to "fall in love" again. lol Not that I don't love Jon... I just want those butterflies again. Anyway... this may be too much information for some, but I am sure there are others that can relate. Oh by the way... Ramsey is home and we are having a blast. I didn't take my camera to the airport so I need to get pics from my mom. Maybe after this long weekend relaxing on Kolob.

One more day!! YEAH!!



And finally... Tomorrow my little brother is coming home from his mission in Brazil. I am so excited to see him. We have missed him dearly!! He gets to come home to 3 nephews! We can't wait for him to meet them. We had some great memories before he left and are excited to have plenty more when he returns. Tomorrow I will post some more of when he returned home!!

11 mo old

I can't believe that JT will be a year in a month. Where has the time gone? He has grown up so much in the last few months. He is a very independent kid. He has a mind of his own and if he doesn't get what he wants he will let you know it. He is also going through the girl scream phase. I seriously hope it doesn't last much longer. :) He now weighs a whopping 18 lbs 14 oz and is 29 1/2'' tall. He loves food. For how much he eats you would think that he should weigh more. He will pretty much eat whatever is in front of him. He also has decided that he will walk when he wants to. He can stand in the middle of the floor if he isn't thinking about it and he will even take a few steps (though they are pretty wobbly.) He loves being with daddy and helping in anyway he can. He loves xbox controllers, computer cords, and anything else he shouldn't have. He cut another tooth on top so we are now at 5 teeth with more swollen. We are now in the stage of taking the binky away during the day. It hasn't been bad so far. The test comes when he has to go to sleep without it. Anyway... sorry for the novel. I would love any ideas for food that your kids love to eat.

This is my brain on drugs.

I hurt my back on Monday night. I don't even know what I did, but I woke up yesterday in so much pain. After seeing the Dr. I found out I have a pinched nerve in my back. So I got some muscle relaxers and pain pills and I went to the chiropractor. OUCH! I am going in tomorrow for a shot in my back and hopefully things will start feeling better. Anyway, I didn't go to work yesterday, but I went today. I did something pretty crazy and made us all laugh. Here is a picture. See if you can get it. :)

My first "Official" Mother's Day!

                 JT 059

- I have a confession to make. Before this year I have hated mothers day. I always put on the happy face and tried to act ok, but deep down inside I hurt so bad. I told Jon it was Happy Wife's Day just so I could get "not being a mom" out of my head. As I woke up this morning and got JT out of his crib I was overcome with emotion. The time had finally come that Jon could say Happy Mother's Day and it was true. I never thought we would get to this point. I LOVE being a mom. It is the best job in the world. JT makes everything better especially when I am having a bad day. I had such a wonderful day and I am so lucky. I have a wonderful husband and a beautiful and precious son.  Who could ask for more.

Best Friends!

When Trey and JT are together they are pretty much inseparable now. They are both at a cute age and just get so excited to see each other. Megan and I decided to take some pictures with the boys tonight for fun and we got some cute ones. Pace is a still too little to participate, but we did get one with them all together. This is my favorite picture with a little bit of help from photoshop.

The visitor that gave me a heart attack!

Ok... here is the story first and than I will show you our visitor. Jon went to the dentist yesterday and planned on staying home with JT. So I went into work late. I put JT down for a nap and chilled at my computer. Our dog wanted to go outside so I opened the sliding glass door to let him out. My computer chair is right next to the door. All of the sudden I heard scurrying and saw a flash of something running into my house and behind my computer. I leapt onto my chair and my heart was pounding so fast. The only thing I could think of was that it HAD to have been a mouse. I HATE MICE!!!!!!!!! I stood on my chair for about 5 minutes before I had the guts to look by my computer. There was my visitor... I quickly put up the baby gate between the kitchen and dining room (Jon says it wouldn't have done anything) and went outside. Jon was luckily on his way home and helped get this "thing" out of my house

For some strange reason

JT just keeps growing :) We have upgraded to a "big boy" car seat. There is something about this big seat that takes the baby out of him. It still kind of feels like a baby seat just because he is backwards and reclined, but in a month and a half we are turning around. And getting rid of the bottle and binkie. I can't wait for that day! :) He is very ready (whether he knows it or not) and so is mom. (NO MORE FORMULA!!!!!!!)

Notice the pj's. I love him in little sleepers, but he has outgrown most of them too. So a quick trip to Walmart and he has new "big boy" jammies. The camo is for papa :)

Oh... and by the way... Uncle Rams is coming home in 21 days. We can't wait for him to get here :)
