Nine months old already!

My big baby! His doctor's appointment today went well. The doctor said to watch him for ear infections because his left ear was a little red. But here are the stats on my baby.
Length about 30 inches
Weight about 23 pounds
Head about 18 inches

He loves to crawl. He has his 'can I get away with this' crawl, his normal crawl, and his 'super' crawl. He loves to stand up to things and climb on the couch. Not quite walking yet but pretty close! His new trick is getting in the bathroom to open the toliet seat and playing in the water... Super fun!

Picture People

I know its a little early for christmas pictures but I figured since we were doing family anyway it would be fun to do a couple christmasy shots.

Our little family

Thanks to my mom, we got an amazing deal on pictures. For 85$ we got a CD and copyrights, and two free sheets: totaling about 200$! WOW! Now we can print as many as we want for a lot cheaper than 20$ a sheet! YAY!

Connor first haircut

Since his hair was soooo long, I finally decided to cut it....
And after:
I did it myself, so its a little long in some places, but all in all it looks pretty good!

Thursday, November 4, 2010


Connor's was a pea pod for halloween. I found it at Goodwill for just a couple dollars and then (since it was too short) I found some green cargo's at Target for 5 bucks. I think he was cute!
And I thought I would throw this on in here too... I left him in the bathroom for a min and next thing I hear is a thud. So I check on him and this is what I found...
No idea how he got there but he was inside the tub.. what a silly boy!

So Connor's hair was sticking up after his nap yesterday and so I decided to spike it. He didn't want to look at the camera but here's the best picture i could get...
Monday night we decided to carve our pumpkins... Here is mike sorting the pumpkin seeds so we can make them yummyness to eat!
And here are our pumpkins! Mine is the one eating the little pumpkin... yum yum! and mike's was actually a last minute decision. His name is Chuckles...
His original plan was to do a haunted house thing, but the tape wouldnt stay on and then it was smaller than he wanted... So this is what he ended up with!

Connor Pictures

Here are some pictures of connor!

Happy Baby!

I want the camera mommy!
Daddy got a new hat! Can I eat it?
Cool Connor!

Connor and his friend tommy who is about 6 months older than him.

Connor's Man Cave at Grandma's House
Hanging out with grandma Nancy!!

He's getting so big! He already has two teeth and is getting more (at least that is what I am hoping!)
Mike swears that connor has said mama, but its usually when he's trying to follow me out the door and I leave him behind...
He's crawling so much! He moves from room to room like a cheetah. And of course he loves to follow me around when I am trying to clean the house. He's started pulling himself up on the couch, mostly to say hi to whomever is sitting on the couch.
He's so big and he's only 7 months old! I can't believe it!

6 months already!

The Twilight Parade in La Centre
I can't believe connor is 6 months old already! Its crazy how fast life flies!
Here are his stats:
21 lbs 12.5 oz
2ft 4.7inches tall
45.5cm for his head circumference
He is so close to crawling its crazy, but he roles around like a roly poly bug.
He's started eating cereal. He like rice but not oatmeal as much.
He's had his first ear infection, which is not very fun...
But he sleeps through the night and is in 12month clothes already!

Connor and Daddy sleeping at Grandma's house

I'll try to post more often...

Pray for You - Jaron and The Long Road to Love :: Official Video

I am absolutely in love with this new artist and this song makes me laugh so i thought i would share!


I went with Lisa and Danielle to Eclipse today and I really enjoyed it (except for the girls behind us that talked and giggled through the whole movie). I loved the new dynamic of character and I especially enjoyed the actor who played Riley. While reading the books there really isn't much written, but in the short story that was written called the Second Short life of Bree Tanner, I really enjoyed the dynamic that he brought to the story. I have to admit the only thing other than girls that bugged me about the movie is the hair in the movie. Esme's hair is dark and Jasper's is just plain wierd. Which I don't get but that's ok. This movie is better than the previous two. A two thumbs up from me!

Update for the last little while

I know its been a while since I've written but things are kind of crazy!
Mike has gotten a new job and a raise. He now works as registrar. I still work at a manager but I've been trying really hard to get my complex full. I'm doing good since i only have one vacancy and one notice. Tim graduated from dental school (if you want pics you'll have to go to Britt's blog. My family came up and stayed for a few days which was fun! We played hard and hardly slept but it was worth it.
In other news I read a new series called the hunger games and I would really recommend it to anyone looking for a good read! They're really good! and one of my all time favorites are the Abhorsen books by Garth Nix. A good read if you like fantasy!
These last few weeks have also been kinda crazy because I have been helping in Primary (not called just helping). I have been teaching the sunbeams which are very energetic. I've been teaching the last four weeks because the teacher moved and the new one hasn't been called yet. I also gave a talk today which went well. I got nervous but then again I always do. If you really want to read it then I can send a copy, just let me know!
Well that's it for now. But I will try to post again later!

Mommy forgot Connor's jacket so Grandpa bought him a new one.

Medicine Recall

I was just talking to my sister and realized that many people may not have heard this but Tylonel, Motrin, Zyrtec, and Benadryl have just recalled all children and infant medications. http://www.tylenol.com/page2.jhtml?id=tylenol/news/subp_tylenol_recall_1.inc is the website to go to for information. Please pass this on to those that have children that are using these medications.
The reasons for the recall are the products included in the recall may contain a higher concentration of active ingredient than is specified; others may contain inactive ingredients that may not meet internal testing requirements; and others may contain tiny particles.

The best way to spread the news is one person at a time....
