I can feed myself

Steven loves to feed himself! It is a very messy process, but he is always so proud of himself. And ya know what? I am proud of him too! He does really well with picking the food up and then curls his little hand around it. When he brings it up to him mouth he puts his chubby little fist up to his mouth and then open his fingers. It is seriously the cutest thing ever. We are working very hard with him not throwing things over the edge to Wally dog. Any suggestions? He really does not like to have his arms and face washed off at the end either, but it has to be done!

Some of his favorites right now include spaghetti and cupcakes. (I know, I should wait until his first birthday, but the child loves them!)

Playing outside with Daddy

The weather here has been unusually warm for this time of year. My lawn wishes there was more water, but I love being outside with my little family. Matt is such an excellant daddy and I am so grateful for him! I love spending time with my family. As I was taking photos of Matt and Steven, Steven just laid his head down on Matt's shoulder for a little break. What a sweetie pie! Seriously, I could not ask for a better son! I love my boys so very much! Happy April!

Grandpa Great Willey

My grandparents (Steven's great grandparents) came out to visit. Steven had such a great time playing with Grandpa Great. He thought his hat was super neat, and he loved the fact that he has whikers. Steven kept touching his face. I remember when Steven was younger and was fussy, Grandpa used to dance around with him and put him to sleep. What a kind and sweet boy!

The many faces of my 8 month old

Oh sweet baby boy! He makes my life so worthwhile! I am so happy to be his mommy! He makes so many faces that I just have to smile at! Here is a glimpse at just a few of the sweet faces my boy makes!

9 Months!

I cannot believe my little guy is 9 months old!
Here are his 9 month stats: 23lbs 3.5 oz 86%
30in, 93%
My tall, skinny boy!! The doctor said everything looks good. The nurse was a little slower about your shots, but you were a trooper and cried for only a minute.

Steven loves to roar like a lion when we say, "Ah! Scary lion!" He loves to hear his own voice, especially somewhere it echos like the bathroom or during sacrament meeting in the chapel. He also loves to drive his train and cars around. He is absolutely beautiful and amazing!!
