Big Sisters are So Fun!!

Kenna and Dax are best little buddies, and the older he gets, the more fun they have together.

Kennedi's favorite thing lately is to go in and get Dax out of his crib when he wakes up from his naps.......sounds scary I know, but she carries him all over the place and is pretty darn good at it.

The other day, she got this toy stroller out, put him in it, and pushed him for like an hour around the house....it was so funny, he was just kicken back in it. Now they do it all the time.

Not New Anymore!!

So here is how my night went.........


As I was doing dishes after dinner, Dax was on the floor in the living room playing. After a little bit, he started to cry. I went and picked him up to find poop all up his back. I went and changed him, got him all cleaned up, put the poopy clothes in the washer, and just left him in a diaper because I would soon be putting his jammies on.

I put him back on the floor to play and continued on with the dishes. When I was done, I saw that he had crawled over to the edge of the carpet where he was just sitting being all smiley and cute. I went and picked him up to find that he was poopy yet again, and this time it leaked out the leg and got a little on the carpet. I then got a little frantic because well there was poop on my brand new carpet. I then rushed him into his room, got the poopy diaper off and decided he needed a tub, but first I needed to attend to the little spot of poop on the carpet. I left him in his room naked, yelled at Kenna and told her to watch him and went and cleaned up the poop.

Ahhh....I started to feel better. I then went to get Dax to go put him in the tub and there he was crawling down the hall (still naked). I picked him up and started walking, stepping in something wet, and thinking to myself that I wished he would stop drooling all over the carpet, then I got to his doorway and saw this.....


Yes.....that is a big glob of poop (the picture doesn't do it justice, it was almost the size of my hand) !! I then realize that the wet stuff I thought was drool down the hall was more poop and that I was holding Dax who was covered in poop.

Totally freaking out at this point and about to die laughing. I hollered at Kennedi to come look at what Dax had done and she started dry heaving which was also hilarious.

So I went and sat Dax in my tub while I cleaned all the poop up. Luckily it all came out of the carpet, and then I went in to find him smearing poop all over the tub....


But seriously....how could I possibly be mad at this little baby? Isn't he just the cutest?


This is just a cute picture I took earlier today...

Our Little G Gette

On Friday, Kennedi got to dance with the G Gettes during half time at the football game, and she was totally thrilled about it , she loves to perform in front of people.



Here is just a little taste of the excitement...

After the dance, Kenna, Dax, & I headed to Green River, where Shane was playing softball in the Melon Days tournament.
It was fun to hang out with my family....Shane had to do the Parade for Humana, so they did it in my dad's Camaro.
My Dad, Kyler, and Dax kicken it at the softball game in the 2x2 spot of shade my whole family was trying to squeeze in.
Then today when Dax woke up from his nap he was standing up just hangin out when we went in to get him. I hollered at Kennedi to come and look at him, and she rushed to get my phone and took this picture of him....what a cutie!

He's 8 Months

Tonight as I sat and rocked Dax in the rocking chair before I laid him down for bed, I felt so sad. He is 8 months old today, and time seems to be going by just too darn fast.



I love the fact that he still lays his head on my shoulder and nuzzles his little face in my neck while I rub his back, and I wonder when he is going to stop doing that. I tell myself I will remember these little moments forever and think it will be so easy, but when I think about Kennedi as a baby, it's is so hard to remember the little things like that.



I get a lump in my throat when I think about him turning 1. I guess it is because it took me so long to get him, and who knows if we'll be blessed with anymore kids.
He is just the sweetest, cutest, little guy I know!

He loves to sit on the floor and play with his toys. If you look close you can see his little bottom teeth coming in.



He's got the army crawl down......he can cruise!

Sanpete County Fair & A Little Dax

On Saturday, we went to the Sanpete County Fair in Manti. We had a good time. We did the Parade for Humana and then headed over to see the animals and go on some rides.

This cow is HUGE!!! Seriously...the picture doesn't do it justice.
We ran into our neighbors, and kennedi's best little friends, Payton and Rilee. Payton was all ready for the Rodeo...so cute!




Kennedi and Kalie petting a cow.




Riding some rides........this girl is fearless. She begged us to let her go on the zipper, luckily we ran into another neighbor friend and he went on it with her. She is at the very top in this picture.






Dax was spent...
Ok, so I haven't posted anything on Dax for a while. He is such a sweet heart!! Seriously the best little baby. Last week he cut his first tooth and the second one is almost through.
We got out the high chair when we moved in and he loves it!
He is such a good sleeper. We can just put him in his crib and he'll go to sleep. We put him to bed at 8:00 pm and he sleeps until 7:00 am, and the best part is, he has never slept in our bed....I learned my lesson well with Kennedi, who slept with us until she was 4.
He loves to be on the floor with his toys, he is just getting ready to crawl and he can entertain himself for a long time.



Ok....I know a lot of you are waiting for house pictures so I'll try to take some tomorrow and post them.
