2 Year Anniversary

I can't believe it but we celebrated our 2 year anniversary this weekend. Its been an eventful 2 years & here we are with a beautiful little baby :)

Josh spoiled me and took me to Park City for the weekend to celebrate. It was awesome, he got us a suite at a park city hotel.....we shopped on Main Street & the Outlets and had some nummy dinner at the Blue Iguana. The best part? A full nights sleep! woo hoo! My parents are the best....they watched Beckett for us. It was good to get a full nights sleep but we totally missed him and talked about him the whole time we were away.

Here is to a fabulous 2 years and a billion to go!

Fall Crafty Crafts

I have been crafting my little heart out this weekend. I love doing this kind of stuff! So to all those crafters out there I have the best information (if you don't already know). I discovered this shop in Murray called, 'The Wood Connection'. It's awesome! They have all the wooden crafts & craft ideas you'd ever need. Tons of wooden block letters & cute house decor ideas, I was in heaven. They have wooden block ideas for every season/holiday. What they do is you can buy things seperately but if you like one of their ideas you can buy the set of letters & then get the rest of your supplies in their shop (paper, glue, paint, modge podge, brushes, etc).

I needed some more fall holiday decor so I bought their set to make 'Harvest' as well as 2 wooden pumpkins & a wooden picture block.

I painted & modge podged paper onto the block letters, finishing with ribbon. I painted & glued the pumpkins together, topping off with aging varnish. Then I just modge podged the picture block w/ a little ribbon for Beckett Boy's room.

Moral of the story? Check out The Wood Connection!

4 months old!

I can't believe it, my baby is now 4 months old. He is a growing, happy boy to say the least! We went to the doctor earlier this week, here are his 4 month old stats:

Height: 26 1/2" (95%)

Weight: 16 lbs (75%)

He is a tall boy, to no suprise. He has also been developing like crazy this past month! He now can grab, touch, and reach for his toys. He is so aware of his surroundings. He is finally noticing the dog & stares at him as Romeo walks around. He is very happy and smiles all the time & has been a maniac in his jumper toy we got (pic below). He is getting good at sitting & standing up, just needs to work on his balance. Beckett also love loves to slobber & he discovered his feet which he loves to chew on! Beckett is the love of our life, we love everything about him! Below are some adorable pictures of Baby B from the past few weeks (yes, I might have a small picture problem....but I can't help it....he's adorable!)

Labor Day Weekend

We very much enjoyed out Labor Day Weekend. NO WORK OR SCHOOL! You can't get much better that. We got to relax & spend some good time together as a family. On Monday we headed up to Wellsville (next to Logan) to enjoy the towns parade & 'Sham Battle'. Josh's family has gone this every year as a tradition because that is where is mother & grandparents are from.....this year was my first. It was fun and the Sham Battle was quite the experience. Basically they redo the battle between the first settlers in Wellsville and the Indians....they even burn a fake little wood cabin. It doesn't get more authentic than that! By the end of the day Beckett Boy was pooped out....check out the picture in his carseat. He totally fell asleep while sucking on my finger (he enjoys it & I let him do it when its the only thing that will satisfy him).

We also spent a day at the Ogden Country Club....we had brunch & spent the afternoon in the sun. It was wonderful & B's first time swimmin!
