13 is a lucky number, right?!

13 months! Holy Hannah. 

This month wasn't super exciting. Just lots of  fun outings and Ty Ty being his cute adorable self. 
(We did go to Cabo this month but that gets it's own post!) 

This little boy climbs and climbs everywhere he goes! He in constantly climbing on the couch and  into the window sill. He gets himself stuck there all the time!!

Payton and Ty are best friends. :) They get into LOTS of mischief when they're left alone. 
There also love to hit each other. It's not a massive problem yet, but I can see it becoming one rather quickly!

We finally got him a high chair! We weren't being very good parents by not letting him really discover his food, so we repented and got one! Now we try to feed him lots and let him feed himself. I admit, most of it goes on the floor/in his hair. But it's good for him! And he's starting to like to eat lots of different things. 

Lots of new foods on his own means he gets a bath quite often!

He actually loves the bath. He got some fun bath toys for his birthday and he can sit in there for forever! 

Umm.. yes. Baby bums make me so happy! hahaha

I love Target carts cuz they're so easy to push around but the baby seats are kinda annoying! 
Way too big cuz baby can do whatever he wants in there!!! 

That is my son playing in a box in the yard. ha. Can we say ghetto?! Yup. Oh well. He loves the water so we make due. :)

We discovered a new favorite place of Ty's! The Museum of Curiosity!!!

Remember how I said he loves to climb? Yup! The museum was awesome. We love going there and climbing on everything!

Ty's favorite new thing is to read books! We have a basket (THANKS MOM!) in the living room with all his books in it and he'll run over there all day long and bring us a book. Then he crawls into your lap whether you're on the couch or the chair or the ground and wait for you to read it. Then he'll go get another one and do it till you make him stop. If he goes through the whole basket he'll ask you to read them again. It's a tiny bit exhausting but also the sweetest thing ever. I totally want him to be reading novels by the time he's two but you can only read Brown Bear Brown Bear so many times!!

Oh my heavens to betsy that face has my whole heart. He could SO walk all by himself but of course he chose not to. He didn't choose to actually start walking till we were in Cabo. (Remember, another post for that to come later!) That awesome fun toy he's holding on to is from his Auntie Ryanne. She lent it to us and he got a LOT of use out it! THANKS RY RY!

Our friend Evalee had a birthday this month and her party was at open gym at the gymnastics gym! It was so fun! The climber in him came out with a vengeance and he had a blast. 

Too bad his face says otherwise. Hahaha

Ty has a mean mommy who threw him in the block pit. Oops!

I also kept trying to make him walk on the beam. I know it's not very obvious, but I was a gymnast in my younger years and beam was my favorite! I wasn't super great at any of it, but I did love it and I still love to watch it and pretend like I know what I'm talking about.

I'm writing this post a couple month late (go me!) and I have to say I miss this bear crawl!! I also love this picture cuz of the adorable action it shows. Also, can you see his face?? His little lip biting?! OH I can't handle it!


This is from a wedding reception we went to. So many awesome things about this photo! 1- My hubby is seriously handsome. 2- My baby is adorable. 3- I love the relationship these two have. Ty really loves his daddy. They are amazing together. It makes life worth it. :)

Next Step

I've been avoiding this post for a while now. In fact, a long time... I've been thinking about it since I wrote the post about our little grey circles that didn't make it. I like writing but the last few weeks have been kinda blah. I also think I've been a little hesitant because I've always wanted these posts to be super happy and chipper but that's not exactly how I feel. After the last post I did get a lot of really nice feedback, one in particular that made me feel extra good. My aunt is an incredible person and I love talking to her. She said to me that no matter how long those grey circles were my babies, they still were and I was allowed to grieve as much as I wanted. I think that kind of gave me permission to really cry and it made me feel a lot better. Thanks Kim. :) 

But now we're on to bigger and better things. I can't lie and say that I'm super excited about this transfer. I think I got WAY too excited for the last one/first one and it ma…

All we know is...

The results are in folks...

YES! We're pregnant!!!
There are simply not words to describe how I feel about this statement. One I've been wanting to make for what seems like forever. One I've heard from so many of my friends and family that made me want to cry. One that seemed impossible to make. And one I am finally able to say for myself. I can't even believe it.
We waited 2 LONG weeks to find out whether or not our little frozen circle would become our miracle. And when I say long, I mean long. Especially when I was supposed to start my period on Friday. Last Friday. So usually when you're trying to get pregnant, you wait till the day your period is supposed to start and you wait... If it doesn't come, you run to the store and buy that expensive little stick and awkwardly try to pee on it. (Maybe they aren't really expensive, but it kinda seems that way, right ladies??) 
Anyway, then you wait a few minutes and see what it says. I had one left over from the la…

Evening in Excellence - Keepers of His Light

A couple weeks ago we had our Evening in Excellence for the Young Women and it turned out so great! A couple girls decided they wanted to use this event as a Value Project for their personal progress so it was up to them to plan end execute the whole thing. I was a little nervous letting that all out of my control since I'm rather a control freak but I couldn't have been happier with how it turned out.

The girls decided on the theme of "Keepers of His Light" and all the decor was fall themed since we did it in October. Here are some pics!

These were the cute invitations we made. Aren't they awesome! We got the paper at Michael's and use the twine thread to tie a bow. :)

Isn't this great paper??

This is Rachel! She is one of the young women that wanted to help. She and Amber basically did everything!

This is beginning of the leaf lanterns that we made. The final product is further down the page... 

Rachel got a little hostile... ;)

This is Amber!! She amaz…
