On the Move with a Mouth Full of Teeth...

I was beginning to wonder if Preston was ever going to start crawling. He is so much later than all my other kids. I mostly blame it on how much we hold him of course, but I guess I was thinking he would want to be running around with his siblings that he would crawl sooner than all of them to keep up. He finally has it down, so now I better keep everything off the ground! Bring on the vacuuming! And oh, look at those teeth! Looks painful...but he has been in good spirits for the most part.

Ryan's Swim Lessons...

Oh Ryan, I am so sorry it has taken me so long to sign you up for an activity. You have deserved something just for you for so long, and with having to juggle three other kids, and one being a baby, I struggled to put another activity on the calendar. But I am so glad I did this spring! You love swim lessons and pay attention to the teacher so well. Sometimes as a parent you wonder how your kids respond to other adults and situations. I know I have not given you the attention you so deserve and feel guilty for it daily. But to watch you listen to your teacher and do what she is asking, with excitement, warms this mom's heart of mine. You will be summer pool ready in no time!

Preston is 7 Months...

Preston is loving meal time and looking oh so cute in his adorable bib! I have to put a plug in for this bib. How did we NOT have these silicone bibs for my previous three kids? Whoever created these is genius! Gone are the days of having to put yucky bibs through my washer and dryer. Now I just wash them like I would a dish and let it dry. Love it!

I also love that Preston is sitting up ALL by himself! He is so proud of himself and we are all proud of him. No if we can just get to the point where he can crawl and get himself to sitting on his own and then back to crawling, we will be in business!

Las Vegas Mayor's Cup...

Oh Zach's soccer team is going to play in a tournament in Vegas in February?...Where do I sign up? We left the middle two kids at home with Marissa Schnell and flew down with Preston in tow, because clearly Vegas is the place to take your baby for their first trip. While we were hoping to experience warmer weather we didn't, but we did have a great time watching he and his team play. They beat the #4 team in the nation(woot woot) and we saw some old friends(Casey and Tammy Waldren) from Justin's BYU Soccer days.  Justin's parents and Aunt Jayne and Uncle Tyson and kids also came to cheer Zach on since we were close to them. We of course hit up our favorite, Cafe Rio, and had a wonderful time catching up. We are grateful to have such a supportive family! What a fun trip! I am sure the first of many to come...
