Bowling and bruises

So this weekend was pretty fun, Paul and I got to go out on a date, just the two of us, and we had a great time! We went with my best friend Jenny, and her boyfriend Cameron, and it was so nice to have some adult conversation! I feel like I speak baby all day every day, and don't get me wrong, it is great fun, but I do enjoy talking in a normal pitched voice, with some actual English words here and there every once in awhile....haha. Anyway, we all went to Noodles & Co for dinner, and then went bowling at Fat Cats. We played 2 games, and I got a better score the last time, and even beat Paul! It was so fun to get out and reconnect with him.

such a fun night!

Paul bowling

and me beating him on the last game!

Earlier this week, we went to the zoo to do their annual Boo at the Zoo, its where you can go dressed up in your costumes, and the kids all trick-or-treat around the zoo. It was fun, in spite of the cold temperature and RAIN!!! Wow it was so wet, and I had definitely not prepared myself for it! But before we left, we went to go pick my sisters, and I decided that I wasn't having enough excitement in my life, and fell down the stairs at my moms house! It was pretty scary, and hurt pretty is the evidence of my losing fight with the stairs!

my smallest one

the medium sized one

and the big one! That one is a good 3 or 4 inches long...

Crazy huh!! Not to mention, my knee, foot and tailbone all hurting as well....yeah crazy! Anyway, on a happier note, I got some funny shots of the Heath-nater eating some dinner....

ready for dinner!

and licking the bowl

what a funny boy!

He gets so excited when he sees me come in with his bowl of food, he knows whats in there! He's doing so well with veggies, I am so proud of him! Although he does take after his dad with peas....not a big fan! But he LOVES bananas, just reassuring me that he is a monkey! I love him so much! Well, gotta go fix dinner, more later!

Zoo and Gardner Village this week has been pretty busy, but so fun! Paul, Heath and I went to the zoo with some of our friends, actually our neighbors who live across the street from us, and had a great time! Heath loves Izze, our puppy, and he gets so excited when she comes in the room to play with him, so I figured he would like all the animals at the zoo, and boy, did he! He looked at the penguins, the monkeys, the tigers, and the bears! It was pretty fun to watch him. We rode the carousel, saw some pretty cool birds, and he tried cotton candy for the first time, WOW! He wasn't sure at first, because it kept disappearing in his mouth, but was sweet and wanted more! But mommy is a Nazi and said no....oh well....anyway, we had a blast with our friends, and look forward to visiting the animals again!

the cute penguins!

he loves his daddy!

look at his bottom lip....this is new! and he does it all the time!

He's as big as a baby gorilla

My cute family!

We decided to have a Heath and mommy day, and we went to Gardner Village, a cute little place with a fabulous restaurant, tons of fun shopping, and just a great atmosphere! We went with my mom, and had a blast. Its my favorite place to visit in the fall, and is decorated so cute, with lots of fun different witches, and hay and pumpkins. I got some great pictures of Heath with some fun friends.....

a HUGE witch!

playing in the hay!

another fun witch

he is such a STUD!

what a handsome boy!

So much fun! He is such a funny boy, and we had a great time! And no, he doesn't stand on his own yet, but he does pretty well at leaning against the wall, and I am never far away....oh....and here are a couple funny picture of my goofball husband....

yes, he is 5 years old....

racing up and down the street

So much concentration!

I came to his work to get the stroller out of his car, and walked into his shop and saw him riding this tricycle around! I asked him, "Is THIS what you do all day here???" and he replied, with a giggle, "No, I was just riding it for a minute!".....who knows how long he has been having fun at work!! Ha ha what a goober! And I am so lucky to have him!

And right now, I can feel the house shaking, from the TV sub-woofer....Paul is watching Transformers 2, so I will go join him! more later....

crazy week.....

So, this week it turns out I have been fighting first I thought it was just the same cold that Paul has been fighting all week, but my symptoms were a little different than his. I have had ABSOLUTELY no energy, my muscles are so sore and achy, and I haven't been eating very well. I am still feeling the effects and its not fun! Poor Paul, when he first talked to Lynn to see what it might be, she said that it could've been Swine Flu, and he was pretty nervous, but when she examined me, she said it was probably just the Adno-virus that has been going around, thank goodness! I'm so glad to have a husband who worries about me. My days are so messed up, I have been sleeping in really wierd patterns and some days I don't know which end is up, it's pretty pathetic. And there really isn't anything you can do to make it go away, just take it easy, which is pretty difficult when you have a 7 month old energy ball to take care of. Thankfully, Heath's grandma's were willing to take him for the day to play! So thank you to Lynn and Mom! I so appreciate it! But today, I just noticed that Heath has a runny nose, and I'm hoping he doesn't get sick....stupid germ bugs.....
Anyway, tonight (if I am feeling up to it and can make it that long) we are going to Paul's uncle's wedding. Bryce and Dawna are getting married, after 2 long years of dating! YAY!! Such a happy day, and Bryce's son, Paul's favorite cousin Adam will be there! He just got back from his mission, and we are so happy to have him home. He missed Jenna's wedding, but I'm so glad he will be here for his dad's.

I just love taking pictures of Heath, he is so photogenic, and such a goofball! Here are some that we've taken recently, some on family trips, some just goofing off at home.....

He makes me laugh every day! What a goober! Anyway, off to take a nap so we can go tonight!

We went camping with my family this weekend up at Diamond Fork, which is up Spanish Fork canyon, and had a great time. While we were up there, we knew that my mom is allergic to bees, but we discovered how badly when she was stung on her neck and started swelling up like a balloon! My dad took her to the Insta-care in Spanish Fork and they gave her a shot of Epinephrine and a bunch of Benedryl. They came back and all was well, until the next day, Saturday, when we were pulling out of the camp spot, and she got stung again! This time on her pinky! We took off to go back to the clinic, and they helped her out again. She now knows not to go camping without her Epi-pen. We also found out that the Heath-nater has achieved a new milestone.....he has cut his first tooth! We are so excited, and yet, this has presented a new sleep for his parents! He isn't very fussy during the day, but night time is a different story! His sleeping schedule has been great until about 4 days ago, when he started getting up 4 or 5 times a night! And, he munches on EVERYTHING, like socks, his fingers, my get the idea :-D His little tooth is so sharp, I feel so bad. It was a fun trip though...all things considered. Also, I just walked into his room to get him up from a nap, and he has pulled himself up onto his knees! I can't believe it, its already time to lower his bed so he doesn't fall out! My big boy.....This is what we saw when we walked in....

silly boy!
Well thats about it for now, more later....

7 months old...

WOW, my baby is 7 months old today! I can't believe how fast the time has gone. He is such an amazing little boy. He makes me laugh every day, with his goofy grin and funny laugh, and every day is a gift that I have learned to not take for granted. I wish there was a word that is cuter than cute to describe his personality and attitude. I can't imagine my life without his happy face and infectious smile, and how he lights up when he sees me or Paul. He's just the most precious little man, and I am so loving being his mom. It's so crazy to think that he will be a year old in just 5 short months! I have loved each stage of his life, and look forward to all the rest. I love you Heath!

So, yesterday was quite productive! We made homemade applesauce and canned it, that is quite the process! It takes like 3 hours to make about 7 jars of it, enough to boil all together in the big boiler pot. We also had Paul's parents over for dinner and a movie, and it was so fun! I made spaghetti and meatballs, and Lynn brought salad, garlic bread and dessert, so yummy! After dinner we watched the Pink Panther 2 (Pops reminds me of Steve Martin as Inspector Jacques Clouseau) and it was so funny! to anyone who hasn't seen it, you should definately watch both of them, super funny! Heath has been crawling around like crazy! Not quite the alternating hands and feet system yet, but he does the butt scoot. He sticks his butt up in the air, then rolls his belly forward, and gets around quite well! I gotta watch him because he likes to get into stuff, like Izze's food, or the TV cords, or Izze's food....haha its pretty funny! He's also got his sleeping schedule down pretty good! He goes to bed about 8 or 8:30, up at 3 to eat, then back to sleep til about 8. He'll take 2 naps during the day, which is nice, usually I'll take one during his morning nap, then get stuff done during his afternoon one. Anyway, this post is too long, so I will end it. More to come later!
