Grunts, Smiles, and Aprons

This Is Hyrum in his bouncer. He loves it now that we have batteries for the vibrator.

Ok, so Hyrum's been doing this grunting thing lately. It's so cute. He reminds me of his dad when he starts waking up. He'll stretch and make a big manly grunting sound. It's really funny. This video's an attempt to capture that, but we really didn't catch it. Instead he just gives me this look like he's saying "Mom, what are you talking about?"

Another cute thing that he's starting to do is smile! Just this morning, Craig and I were playing with him and he wouldn't stop grinning. I love being a mother and watching him grow and learn new things. Last night he huffed and puffed like he was laughing. We'll just say he really was. He had a wide grin on last night and laughed. It was probably the cutest thing I've seen him do yet. I'm sure there's much of that to come. He's getting so big! So strong too. He'll stand up with a little help, but not too much. He's a pretty tough kid. Ain't nobody messin' with this big boy!

I've been a busy woman lately, and here is what I have to show for it! It's got a few mistakes, but hey! I'm learning how to sew. For those of you who don't know, I just got the most amazing sewing machine for graduation. A Bernina Activa 220! Oh yeah!

That's it for now, I'll have to post more pictures soon. I just have to find the camera charger! Eh!

I turned 23 on Sunday! We didn't take any pictures, but it was a great day. Actually, we celebrated on Saturday. Craig took me shopping if you can believe how amazing that would be. I got some clothes, then we had dinner at Olive Garden, and finished off the night at movie theater. We saw Star Trek and it was Awesome! I wasn't disappointed at all, being the Trekie that I am. I guess I'm not a real Trekie, but I like it because I think of my dad and his millions of Star Trek Next Generation videos. I loved watching those with movies with Dad. Good times.

Life for us is going really well. Craig's in a competition with the other sales reps to get a free dinner, so we'll let you know how that turns out. I think Craig's car is going to win becuase my husband ROCKS! Not that I'm biased or anything. I just love him. Hyrum is doing great. I love to hear him snore, watch him as he's completely intoxicated after nursing, and give him baths. He's getting too big too fast. I don't know how much I like that, but I can't do much about it. Here's some cute pictures. He sleeps with his bum up, and it's adorable! And another movie, pretty much the same as all the other videos, but I can't help it, he's my little boy, I love him!

Dave and Busters

We just keep having too much fun in Denver. Yesterday we went to Dave and Busters for a company meeting for Craig. We had dinner and then spent the rest of the evening playing games! It was a cool place; kind of like a Chucky Cheese for adults. We got a lot of tickets playing the Monopoly game.

Then we got a monkey and ring pops for our tickets. They were Grrrrreat!

Check this out. Hyrum and I played the jump rope game! He slept the whole time, it was funny.

And this video is just for fun. Think of it as a bonus video or something!

Day in Denver

This Saturday we got to go to Hard Rock Cafe and to the Colorado Rockies game! It was definitely a fun outing, and we had a great time. Hyrum even let me eat... for a while... then he decided he wanted to eat too. That's ok though, we love him to pieces and he can eat anytime he wants... really... even at 3am in the morning. And trust me, he takes advantage of the "anytime" food offer.

Here are some pictures of the wonderful event, and some extra pictures. We just can't help it. We want to document every minute of this boy's life. He's only going to be this little for a short amount of time. I'll sure miss how little he is when he's three and learning how to use the toilet. Oh boy! For now, we'll just enjoy the here and now.

Anyway, it was so much fun! Hyrum loved all of the sounds during the game, he just wanted to poke out his head and see what all the camotion was about. He's so much fun, and we love being parents. It's crazy to think that's what we really are. In just a few short years, he'll be going to school, then dating, then getting married, then we'll be grandparents?! Maybe, I don't know about that... could that really happen to us? Time really does fly by fast!

Update on Craig: He loves Summer Sales, and he's doing really well. He gets into a lot of homes and makes a lot of sales. His manager says that he's doing extraordinarilly well for his first two weeks. He comes home happy and loves to take on the father role. He's such a good dad and husband, I couldn't be happier.

Tune in next time for videos with Hyrum! You betta believe it!
