8 months

Will had a check up this month. No shots this time! YAY! that was a relief.  Doctor B has been his Pediatrician since birth and he is awesome. The nurse poked my baby's right big toe to check his iron levels and it checked out great.  He is a healthy boy. and for that I am grateful.

2 weeks ago I started weaning Will. It was not as hard as I thought it was going to be. I think its because he did most of it. He started pushing me away when i would feed him. At first it was really hard for me. I couldn't believe my baby didn't want to be breastfeed any more. Breastfeeding really helped me to just sit back and relax. BUT, I wasn't losing any weight. I have lost over 10 pounds in the last month. Most of it was water retention. I still have a long was to go. so, thank you Will for making the weaning process easier. :)
17.6 LBS  28.5ins
At 8months Will can/likes:
to crawl on his hands and knees.
(He even crawls on his hands and feet sometimes. pretty funny. oh my little Mowgli.)
He likes to push himself up.(He might walk sooner then we think.yikes.)
veggies and chicken.
Sesame street. 
                          Bolt. (He screams and laughs when he sees Bolt) 
his spider man doll.
He can hold his own bottle
                          He loves spoons. (he crawls around the entire house with a spoon in his hand.)  
car rides.
 He loves to cuddle when he sleeps in our bed in the morning. (usually he is laying right next to head.)
He loves his daddy. He gets super excited to see Kent. 
                      He super crawls to him. (I don't blame him. I would super crawl to Kent to. We love him.)

Graduation day

Kent graduated on Friday and it was such a great day! We are sad our family back in San Diego couldn't make it but extremely grateful for all their help, love and support. You guys are the best!( see you in 2 weeks) 
Scott, and Uncle Mike came to the convocation and we were glad to see them.
   Go Cougars! ( this one is for you Grandma Judy)                                           

We had dinner that night at our favorite restaurant Red Iguana in downtown SLC. The food is delicious.  It reminds me of Bazaar del Mundo in Old Town.
(Mariachi, authentic mexican food and colorful walls.)

Thank you family and friends for all your love and support!

Felicidades mi amor!!

playing in the sun

Will is 8 months old this Saturday. We is starting to get into a lot of trouble. He crawls on his hands and knees now and you can usually find him by our printer, speakers, DVDs, or hallway. We are super busy chasing after him. We are so happy to have him in our lives.  As you can see from the 2 pictures above, he can pick himself up too.  He eats everything I give him and is starting to take formula at least 2 times a day. that's right, I am starting to wean him off from breastfeeding.

Picnic and cupcakes.

Kent planned a wonderful picnic for us at a park in Orem. He bought ham tortas from the local mexican market. drank apple juice and had the most delicious strawberries. oh and costco chips and salsa. It was so nice being outside. Can't wait for many more picnics in the summer!
He bought us some delicious cupcakes from here in Provo.  Will had his first swing ride and he loved it. Can't you tell? He smiled the entire time.              

 Kent was so sweet to dress up as a bunny for the primary Easter activity.  The kids loved it and chased him around the cultural hall. I love him.  He is always willing to do what ever I ask of him.

It was overall a wonderful day!

Mission Reunion

Friday was my mission reunion. I served in the Utah SLC South Mission. It was so nice to see the sisters 
and elders i served with. 
On saturday we found out my mission president ( Brad Risenmay) was called to be a seventy.
It didn't surprise at all. He is a very special man. 
Sister Risenmay is a wonderful women and I felt so much love and encouragement when I served under their direction.

A Will update and my new hair.

                          Yesterday the carseat was his favorite toy. He literally played with it for half an hour.  Usually its the DVD on the bottom shelf, my cell phone, Laptop or printer that catches his eye. I am super busy chasing him around and moving him away from these things.

Will at 7 months and 2 weeks can:
*pick him self up
*eat an entire baby jar of veggies and fruit
*crawls on his knees and hands but is lazy 
sometimes and does the army crawl
*He sleeps on his tummy
*he can finally put the binky in his mouth by himself!!!
* talks A LOT! He says dadda, bubbba and loves to scream
*He loves his giraffe stuffed animal and did 
I mention my cell phone?
*He also loves to be breastfed. I've tried giving him formula ( 3 different kinds) and he still wont take it. I guess I shouldn't complain but I really want to lose some weight.

I had my hair cut on Wednesday.  Don't mind how I'm dressed.
I was getting ready to go to Zumba. Last time I had short hair was back in 2003. It took me awhile to get use to it abut I love my new look.
