6 Months Old and Cousins

Well, another month has gone by... Does anyone else think time keeps going by faster and faster? Dieter is now 6 months old. He is so fun and brings so much joy to our family! He is so happy and smiles all the time. Kimball and I feel so blessed that he is apart of our lives!! He is getting so strong and grabs at anything we are holding. He loves anything paper. Christmas will be fun with all the wrapping paper!!

On Kimball's side of the family, there have been 3 new babies after Dieter. Grace was born in August. Hayden and Van were born in November (10 days apart). It will be so fun to have them grow up together. We lined them all up for a picture. Dieter is huge!!

I've created a monster???

That is what Kimball tells me about Dieter... I made the mistake of letting Dieter sleep in our bed (he cuddles, I love it). Well, now he is almost 6 months old and he will only sleep if I lay by him. Long story short, me and Dieter nap from 1-3 and we go to bed about 8:00. Yep, you might think I'm crazy but I'm enjoying it. It won't last long. He is growing up fast.

Because of this Dieter doesn't nap very good when I'm at work. Sorry mom!!

5 Months Old

Sorry, I don't know how to turn the pictures.

Only on a baby are these chubba thighs so cute!!

Our little bear is 5 months old. I can't believe it!! He is the best baby and is so happy. He has two teeth and has rolled over! It is so fun seeing him grow. He absolutely loves being outside!! We have a swing set in the backyard and I think he would be content to swing all day long. He notices when I leave the room and he loves to put his toys in his mouth. I love being a mother (even if the little guy still wakes up 3 times in the night)!!

Happy Halloween!

Here is Dieter with his cute cousins Mckay and Kyler

This never happens...

So I was being terrible and ignoring Dieter while I was shopping on the internet. I realized I hadn't heard him making any noises for a while. It turns out he fell asleep on the couch! My little bear never does that!

Kimball, Dieter and I had a little get away to Park City. I've been telling Kimball for a while I wanted to go. It was very relaxing and fun to do a little shopping. I really like Park City!

Where did the summer go????

I thought when I had Dieter, that I had so long before I had to go back to work. Well, the time has flown by and I went back to work on Monday. I am teaching Monday, Tuesday and every other Friday. It is not too bad but it was very hard leaving him. Thankfully my mom and Kimball's mom are watching him. I can't believe his is 3 months old already!! I think time keeps going by faster and faster.

Over Labor Day weekend we entered Dieter in the baby contest and he won Prince!! What a cutie!! One of his prizes was a gift certificate to Sadies Photography. I went and got his pictures taken today and I love them!!

I'm glad I bought this

This wrap was one of the best things I've purchased. It allows me to have free hands again! Dieter wants to be held all the time. It is a Moby wrap. It comes in all colors, but I liked purple. I laugh when Kimball wears it because its purple. Anyway, I would definitely recommend this.

Kimball loves to play with Dieter. Dieter is starting to "talk" (cute baby noises). It's so cute!!!

Very Bored!

So, up until last week I watched several hours of the HGTV channel each day. I live in an old house so I love seeing rooms being remodeled. Well, last week I cancelled our TV thinking that maybe I will accomplish other things during the day instead of sitting on the couch. I did pretty good this week keeping busy, but now I am incredibly bored. I did start a project today, but it is very difficult to do with a baby that wants to be held 24/7. I am going to paint our kitchen cabinets. I took down the doors and started sanding. Their is no turning back now... Anyway, if anyone as any good books they could recommend that would be great!! And here is another picture of Dieter. So far, it is my favorite...

1 month

Dieter is 1 month old now. I can't believe it!! I feel like we are starting to get into a routine and I don't feel nearly as exhausted. I took him to get his pictures taken and here are a few of them...

Will I ever sleep again?

My cute baby is 1 week old today and both Kimball and I are very sleep deprived. I didn't realize such a cute little thing can be so exhausting!! I really don't have much to complain about because I do feel so good...
My water broke last Thursday at 5:00 a.m. and I had Dieter at 10:40 p.m. So that makes about 18 hours of labor and I did not have an epidural. It was hard work, but I quickly forgot all about the labor when I held Dieter in my arms. Kimball has a much better memory of the birth than I do, (probably a good thing). Anyway, we are all doing very well and I can't help but post some adorable pictures of my boy...

We liked the name Dieter after listening to President Uchtdorf speak at General Conference. Van is Kimball's dads name.

Almost Finished

Here is our baby's room... I love how it turned out. I need to get a rug and put up curtains. Then I just need my little baby here!!

This is what the room looked liked after we started tearing into it. Kimball didn't want me to put this picture on but I didn't have any other pictures to show you what it looked like before.
I found these cute vinyl stickers to match my bedding.

Some things for the nursery...

I have been slacking on my blog. Kimball and I both had birthdays this month. He turned 27 and I turned 24. I am off track again until the middle of April so I am trying to get things done around the house while I can still bend over a little bit :). We still are not finished with our babies room. We need to put up molding. Hopefully will get it done this week and I will can get some pictures posted when its finished. But I have my babies bedding and I have made some things to decorate the room... This is a quilt my mom helped me make.
I made these for a shelf in the room.
Here's the bedding. I don't know how to turn the picture...

I'm growing

Here is a picture with my pregnant belly. I am 21 weeks. I think my face is getting chubby but I am very happy to have a our little boy on the way.


We went on a trip to Cali with Trevor and Jen Wayment. We went to Disneyland and to San Diego. It was a fun little trip and now I am back teaching. I didn't get our baby's room painted but I went back to the doctor and our baby is still a boy :).
