My BIL the Bishop

So I haven't had time the past few days to post. As of Sunday my Brother-in-law Mike became the Bishop of his LDS ward. It's a huge honor but also a huge responsibility for both him and his family. My sister was a little stressed with so much going on so I decided to help her out. I made brownies and two different types of cookies for the luncheon after church on Sunday. It was a good day visiting with family. Jason and I ended up staying late so he could play video games with Brax while I played ticket to ride with my sis and bil. Mike even made his special popcorn. I don't know what it is but ever since I was little I always thought Mike's popcorn was the best. Boy did it taste good!

A goofy picture from a few years back of my nephew Braxton and my brother-in-law Mike.

What has Alex been up to the past few days? Well he has developed a terrible *fake* cough. On Friday he would cough then I would then he would laugh and start all over again. Smart little kid!

He has eaten his first sweet potatoes. He isn't too found of them as you can tell. We will try a few more times and then move onto another food next week. For now he likes his cereal the most.

Can't say I blame him, I think they are pretty gross myself!

He also had his first taste of celery. He sucked on a celery stick for a few minutes Sunday before he dropped it on the floor just like everything else.

Ot oh... there goes the celery!

My nieces took him outside on Sunday and let him swing, he loved it. I can't wait until we have a yard and an outdoor swing for him.

He could have stayed in there all day, he loved it!

Hanging out with cousin Shae.Gotta love a man with a pot belly!

For the last 24 hours he has a little fussy and has hurled on himself, me and Jason multiple times. I am not sure if it's something I ate or what. He is doing a little better now so hopefully it has passed.

He has also done his fair share of sleeping the past few days including more successful naps in his crib. =) Here are a few times he wasn't in his crib.

Who doesn't enjoy a Sunday nap in their cousin's arms?

This was taken just minutes ago. Alex couldn't keep his eyes open any longer. Too bad Dad isn't really sleeping.

Tomorrow we will be prepping for Thanksgiving. If I don't have time to post let me wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving! I am so thankful to have so many amazing friends and family.
