Always playing blog catch up

Why is it that my blog has become a chore instead of a hobby. There has been so much going on that I feel I will never catch up. Time to do just that! Here is what has been happening in my neck of the woods.
Alex turned 14 months old. I know I was always told cherish them while their are small because they grow up fast but honestly I never expected it to be this fast.
I am not sure on his weight because we haven't weighed him lately but he is definitely still small for his age. He isn't walking yet but is super close, I don't give him much longer. He is so full of personality lately.
Here are a just a few of his new/favorite things to do lately. He loves to watch eebee baby, signing times and John & Kate plus 8. He loves to be tickled, play with his trucks, give high fives, wave, be pulled around in his highchair, drink milk from his sippy cup, take showers with mom, play in the water, eat mom's piggies, read books, play catch with his balls and give hugs and kisses. His new favorite words is Ohhhh and Baa ( translated to ball).

His 14 month pictures, look at how little Ryker bear is getting.

Last weekend I had my niece Shae come for a visit. We stayed busy while she was here. We had a good time at Moms group playing on Noah's Ark at Thanksgiving point. We also spent a day playing over at my friend Mollie's new house. Had a BBQ and swam at Nessiem's house one night. Went to Draper Days another night and watched the fireworks. It was a busy weekend! Sunday we had family dinner at my Mom's so I could meet my sister to drop off Shae.

Here is Shae pushing Alex around on his truck. He loved having a playmate for the week. Shae is such a big helper. I hope they always stay best buds.

Draper Days

Alex's first pony ride. He wasn't too sure what to think of it. Jason said "can you blame him I am not a huge fan of riding them either".

This horse was hungry and had stuck his head under the fence to eat the grass. He has eaten it down to nothing so Shae was nice enough to pull some grass for him and bring it to where he could reach. Silly horse, I am surprised he didn't get his head stuck.

Shae and Alex on the barrel wagon ride. He seemed to enjoy himself but wasn't willing to look at me for a picture.

We decided to let Shae do something many people will never do in their lifetime, jump in a huge pool of bubbles in her clothes. She had a blast. I think if it's there next year I might just have to try it out myself.

Jason bbq'd some Sanpete "turkey" for Sunday dinner. It was delicious!! We didn't have the turkey we needed so chicken had to do but it worked out well. Alex seemed to enjoy it.

A close up of Alex crossing his legs. So stinkin' cute!!

Alex loves balls and has just recently started staying baaa. He was freaking out on Sunday and I couldn't figure out why. Finally I realized he had noticed the ball on the other side of the lawn. Aunt Kim was nice enough to play catch with him.

Happy 24th for all you Utahns, have a great one!

Sharie, he is such a cutie. I love his animal blanket too.

The bubbles look like so much fun. Luke would have had a blast. Was that at Draper Days too?

Shar! He's so stinking cute! I love the crossing of his legs and I love the way he cuddles with his blankets! What a stud!j

Unfortunately, I feel the same way about my blog...but, I am just lazy lately! Hahahaha!

Next year if they have the bubble pool, I want to do it too!

Sami said...

Wow. You guys are busy. Thanks for going to the pool with us last week... or was it the week before? I don't remember, but it was a blast either way. Sorry we had to ditch out so soon!

It was such a fun surprise to see your comment! I haven't seen you since your wedding. (That's pathetic). Sam said it was fun to see you too. I guess our families are just fated to have connections. Sam and AJ sure have a good time together. Your baby is DARLING! How fun it is to see you grown up and being a mom. Stay in touch!
