8 Months Old

Look at this happy boy!!! We are so blessed to have such a happy baby! (No stats till next month...we guess he weighs about 22-24 pounds. He's in 18 month clothes!)

He smiles and talks all the time!

He loves toys!

Everything is his! :)

And has to go in the mouth!

His hands and feet are huge!

Sam is such a great boy! It is so much fun to watch him grow and change everyday. He is getting more and more talkative and loves making different faces. He likes to repeat faces that make people laugh. He is very funny and likes making people laugh. He is hitting milestones like crazy!!! I said he'd be crawling by 8 months...well, he started army crawling 2 days ago! He has started to sit up from lying down, on his own. And has started pulling himself up to his knees! He now sleeps on his side or his tummy with his butt in the air. (Aaron and I think he seems so much older when he's not sleeping on his back...silly I know!) Sam is super ticklish and has the greatest laugh. He actually likes to try out different laughs, which I think is so cute and funny! He loves my belly and 'kisses' it all the time! He loves being outdoors. He still hates bath time (unless in the kitchen sink) but he loves going swimming! He is also a champ at drinking from a straw...he's actually been really good at it for awhile now, but didn't realize that is was such a milestone till I was buying more and the package says stage 4...he uses a bottle or a straw sippy cup. 

His favorite things:
Whole Milk (which he only gets once and while)
Gerber puffs
Gerber yogurt bits
Chicken and Apple dinner
(Food really!)
Mom and Dad
Zeus (the dog)
Mickey Mouse Club House
Listening to Mom sing...he's my biggest fan!

Words can not express the joy Sam has brought into our lives. We feel like our lives started the day he was born!!!

Happy 8th Anniversary to Us!

We can't believe that we've been married 8 years now! Time is going faster and faster the older we get.

Our 7th year picture

The best thing that has happened to us!!! Sam has brought new life into our marriage and so much joy! 

And the next best thing isn't too far behind!!! Our sweet girl will be here before we know it!

We have had our fair share of ups and downs and sure there will be many more hills. But Aaron and I love each other so much, there's nothing that we can't over come!!! We are defiantly on a huge up right now with Sam in our lives and Vanessa on the way! There's a lot more to worry about now, but there is also WAY more love in our home! Aaron and I both agree that now that Sam's here, our anniversary feels so different. Really, our family became complete on December 22, 2011!

Some of our favorite things about the last 8 years:

Going to Nova Scotia, Canada
Going to Hawaii
Getting over my fear of dogs
Having friends over
Getting sealed in the temple
Getting pregnant
Blessing Sam
Getting pregnant on our own!

There are many more and there will be many more to come and we can't wait!!!!
