Happy Easter!

Well, I don't know how I did it, but I managed to sleep through the night while Emmett was at Houston's mom's house. I think the main reason why I was able to was because I was very sick and just wanted to sleep forever. I only woke up once and was awake for about an hour and then was able to go back to sleep. While I missed Emmett more than anything in the world, I will admit that it was very nice to have some me time (and some alone time with Huey!) Anyway, the main reason he slept there was so Houston and I could ride his new motorcycle down to his Mom's in the morning because we were going to have Easter dinner there anyway. The ride was fun, but we froze our bums off!!!! Houston has this cool helmet where it has bluetooth hooked into it so he can answer his phone or listen to his iPod.... pretty cool!

We drove down 12th street and went all the way up the canyon to Mountain Green and then made our way to Henefer. He told me it would be a little cold, so I put on a little hoody. Thankfully, Houston had another one he packed just in case it got colder and I am so glad he did or I think I would have froze to death (I almost did anyway!) When we finally got to his mom's house, it was almost noon. So I survived without my little baby for over 12 hours! YIKES! I don't know if or when I will be able to do it again though. . . we're going to Vegas in a month or so and I am taking him with me :)

Houston looks so good on his bike! He's been wanting to get one for forever and finally broke down and bought a Kawasaki Vulcan 900. That's all I know about it and I am actually pretty impressed with myself for even knowing that!

Here is Emmett in his Easter outfit I got him. I was worried it would be a little girly. . . but it actually looked super cute! He looked so cute, but then I had to change him because he peed through his diaper. . yum!

I changed him into one of the new outfits Grandma Sheri got him. . . they are 12 months! He is such a big boy :)

After we ate at Houston's mom's house, we stopped at his Dad's. They were shooting colored eggs with a 22 (which is obviously the gun.... I am also impressed that I remembered that too) I have only shot a gun one other time in my life, and that was at girls camp like ten years ago! Here is Jim (Houston's dad) showing me how to line up the scope.

They actually had me practice on a close target because they thought I would suck. . . but surprize surprize! I hit something every time I shot so they had me hit some eggs that were a lot further and I hit those too! They said I was a natural. Ha. I actually really enjoyed myself. . . watch out Houston :)

Emmett was not too thrilled with the chilly wind. So Grandma Pattie and I took him back in the house. I brought his jumper and set it up so they could see just how cute he was! He was in there almost an hour and loved every second of it.

After we got home, I gave Emmett a bath and put him in his new jammies (also 12 months). It was such a fun day and the best Easter ever! I love spending time with family :)

Sunday Stroll

Finally! A nice warm Sunday which was perfect for a family walk. The weather was actually very decent today so we put Emmett in the stroller and put the dogs on their leashes and went for a stroll around our new neighborhood. Emmett loves being outside as do the puppies! It was so much fun to go out as a family and get some much needed fresh air and exercise :)

Emmett was not happy when we stopped for a picture
The dogs love their new leashes because they're the retractable kind and they have more room to roam

They love their Daddy!!

Pushing Emmett in his stroller

My turn with the doggies!

Emmett was getting hungry (he tried eating his stroller!) so we decided to head home

Emmett and Mommy chillin at home :)


Emmett is getting SOOO big! He has been sitting up on his own so much lately and has just been acting like such a big boy. I got him an early Easter present, it's a little penguin that he can play with while he's sitting up and he seems to enjoy it. Because he is sitting up, I got him a new bath that he can sit up in and he could sit in the bath and play for hours if I let him. Also, he is starting to notice Hershey and Cocoa a lot more and loves to touch them and watch them wrestle. His Great Grandpa and Grandma Jones got him a new bouncer, which he absolutely loves!! He just goes to town in that thing and jumps like crazy! I can't believe how blessed we are to have such a sweet little boy in our lives. Here are a bunch of recent pictures of my big boy :)

He was having so much fun he started talking with him!

He is so big and can sit up all on his own now!!

Kisses from big brother Hershey

He likes tugging on Hershey's ears. . . which doesn't seem to bother Hershey (well not too much anyway!)

Emmett in his new jumper. He loves it!!

In Grandpa Rawn's hat. GO UTES!!

He loves his toys!

This picture is my favorite bath picture because he looks SOOO chubby :)

So I have finally decided to get started on my blog...

My first post will just be about my cute little family... My hubby Houston and my chunky monkey Emmett who is already 5 months old!! We also have 2 little miniature dashaunds Hershey and Cocoa.

Houston and I have been married for 1 year as of 2 days ago. Which we celebrated with dinner at home while Grandma Sheri watched Emmett. We moved into our house February 15th after we completely remodeled the whole inside- It is so great to have our own house finally. We actually live right around the corner from my sister Erica and her husband Derek and my cute nephew Mason.

Emmett is such a chunk! We went to the Dr's on Tuesday and he weighed 17.13 at only 5 months- you can imagine the cheeks he has! He is almost sitting up on his own and he has rolled over a few times. And even once he scooted on his tummy. The poor guy has a little cold right now which the Dr said he was more likely to get because of his RSV he had almost 2 months ago. Houston just blessed him last Sunday at our house. Mason also got blessed on the same day. It was great- Most of our family showed up to share Emmett and Mason's special day.
