1st Play Date

This last weekend we had the opportunity to go to Utah! Brent had training on Friday and so it just so happened to work out to have a play date during the day and then girls night!! (More on that story later!) We had such a fun time playin with Caitlyn and Sam! Sam is such a cute boy and he is always smiling. He is a flirt if you ask me!! Sam is 2 1/2 months older than Dane! I love watching Sam and seeing what he can do. Makes me excited for Dane to get older.

Here we are getting them ready for the night before us girls went out! We had to compare the two of them and Dane isn't far behind Sam. Dane is starting to sit up on his own...I usually have to help him with one hand. I love how Dane is patting Sam's shoulder!

Comparing the belly's and yes they are both drooling too!

It just so happens that Dane and Sam have the same shammies! Towards the end of the night Dane had had enough of the crazyness so he started to cry when Sam attacked him!!
This little boy is just so dang cute and I just can't get enough of him!

Shout Out...

Gotta do a shout out to my niece AVA! Its her birthday today and she is 6! Hope you have a great day Avers and can't wait to come to your party tonight!!
Love ya!!

Look at ME.

It seem as though Dane has found himself in the mirror! He was so thrilled he threw his hands in the air!!


In between Christmas and New Years, Brent's work gave him the whole week off! We wanted to do something fun but we just couldn't decide. Well on Tuesday morning we got up and packed our bags not knowing where we were going for sure...well 5 minutes before we walked out the door I called my Bro in Washington and told him we were on our way and we were going to come and stay with them for the rest of the week! Boy, were we all so excited...I was a little nervous about the roads because there was a nasty storm on its way...but Brent was such a great husband and he knew that I wanted to go so bad. He was a champ and drove us there safely. Dane did FABULOUS...we only had to stop once to get gas and I figured that I had better feed him and then he just slept and hung out the rest of the time.
The week consisted of games, LOTS of laughing, delicious food, shopping, hockey games, date night, watching movies and just hanging out as a family!
Vy and Bo just LOVED Dane! They were so good with him and they helped me so much watching him and changing him etc!
Here we are before we went out and had lunch and did some shopping! Bo and Brent were buddy's the whole time!
We decided to be brave and take Dane to his first hockey game! He did great. The cheering and loud horns didn't bother him at fact he fell asleep! Such a good and cute little boy!

Bo and Dane had the same shammies with frogs on them so they had to wear them on the same night!!
Clint and Heather talked us into leaving Dane and going out on a date one night! So we took advantage of it and we had stuch a great time! Thanks for watchin Dane for us and thanks so much for letting us come and crash at your house! Dane loves you guys so much and he is already counting down the days until he gets to see you again!!
(Heather, hope you don't mind that I took some of your pictures!!)


Yeah I know...I'm totally behind about posting about Christmas! We had such a great time with our family's. Dane wasn't quite sure about the whole Christmas fact he thought he always needed to eat when it came to opening presents time. I felt like a little kid. I couldn't go to sleep and then I was up at 5 a.m. I was just so excited for Dane even though he isn't old enough to know yet. I'm sure next year will be a blast!!

Here we are on Christmas Eve, we just got our Christmas shammies! Dane had had enough for the day!
Here is Dane on Christmas Day. He got some really cute puppets from Clint and Heather and he just loves them! He is always holding on to one of them!

Hope you all had a Happy Holiday!!!

4 Years

Me and Brent celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary yesterday! It was a good one. We were in Pasco, WA last weekend so my sis in law watched Dane for us while we went out to dinner. Its weird leaving for the first time...its like something is missing! But it was fun to just be with Brent! I still wanted to make yesterday special even though we weren't going out, so I ordered Shon Hings (Chinese food), made a cheese cake and bought Despicable Me for Brent! He just so happened to surprise me with some yellow roses!!! We splurged on each other this year and bought some new sunglasses!
Here are a few random pictures that captured the special day!!

Aww yes me and my Diet Coke...some things never change!
My nephew Brogan found the chocolates while no one was looking! Some of my besties that came to the temple to see me!

4 Months

Dane is now 4 months old. People always say, "Time goes by so fast!" I couldn't agree anymore! We took him to the doc. last week for his check up and he is such a healthy boy!
Weight: 17.3 lbs
Length: 26 1/2 inches
He is in the 90th percentile for his weight and length and 35th percentile for his head! Haha made me laugh...he doesn't really have that big of a head!
He is such a good boy...sleeps in his crib, sleeps through the night (most of the time), loves his bumbo chair, is always serious and trying to figure how things work, loves to tell stories, enjoys bath time (starting to figure out he likes to splash), survived his first road trip to Pasco, WA (more to post later on that trip), doesn't want to miss out on anything, is always making us laugh!
Thanks Dane for being such a good boy! You definitely bring smiles to your family!!
