{9 Months}

Our little Roo turned 9 months yesterday! I wish he would just stay cute and little but he is growing and changing so much. He is still really low on the charts for height and weight for his age. He is 17.14 pounds and is 26.5 inches long. He is growing though and a healthy little boy so we aren't worried. He started the little army crawl about 2 months ago and is getting really good at getting up on those knees, rocking back and forth :) and going on his way. When he sees something he wants, he is determined to get it! He has strong little legs and can pull himself up on everything and stand for a long time. It's so cute to watch. I really have to keep a close eye on him to make sure the little bugger stays out of trouble or doesn't hurt himself! I wouldn't rather be doing anything else, though. He is such a little sweetheart and makes me smile when nothing or no one else can :) "He is the life of the party" ;) He is a little chatterbox, always talking and playfully screaming at everyone and everything. He loves people and especially little kids. He'll try and jump right out of my arms so he can go get them and play with them. We can't believe he's been here for 9 months! You are our greatest blessing little B and we love you more than words could ever say!

 Love that little face!
 He gets himself in the craziest positions

 He loves his Daddy

New Job!

My handsome husband got a new job!! 
We are so happy for this new change! He's been working at America First as a loan officer for the past 3 years and was really ready for a change! (so was i) ;) I'm so proud of him for working so hard to provide for our family. I am so lucky to be able to stay home and take care of little B. This new job has made our family that much more secure! And will allow us to continue to save more and more for a house! :) He will now be working as a sells consultant at Marketstar in Ogden. Which means he will be able to walk to work now since it's like a block from our place!  He will have a convenient, flexible schedule (which is nice since he is still going to school) Salary pay, and that pay is double what he was making before, if not more than double when you include bonuses and raises he will earn. We feel blessed to have this new opportunity and it's been a long time coming! He really deserves it! Love you Prest.

Mommy's Day

"Motherhood is the symbol of love, in its highest and purest form. Motherhood is the symbol of compassion, forgiveness, unselfishness, patience, long-suffering, faith and fortitude. Motherhood is the cardinal point in God's intelligent plan, the keystone of His glorious creation, the purest channel of His magnificent handiwork. To revere motherhood is to worship God. He who holds in his heart the greatest love, the highest esteem and the deepest reverence for motherhood, walks closest to God." 

I am so blessed to be a Mother!

What a happy weekend it was! Boston and Preston spoiled me rotten! I am so lucky to have these sweet boys! I love them so much and am honored to be a wife and mommy to them!
Saturday they surprised me with these gorgeous long stem roses! Then Mother's Day morning i got another surprise with Sapphire earings! They are so beautiful! Sapphire is my birth stone so they are that much more special!


 My little Roo that made me a Momma
Best Friends

It was such a perfect day celebrating our Moms! 
My mom has always been one of my very best friends and she has taught me everything about being a Mom. She is the prefect example of what a Mom is and so much more! We're always together i love her so much! I'm grateful for Preston's Mom in raising such an amazing man! He truly is the best and respects me and makes me feel so special as a wife and mother.

Being a Mom is the best!
