I can't believe it's already been a month since Brody came to our home. It's gone by quick, but at the same time, it seems like I've known Brody for so much longer than one month. He is such a sweet little boy!
He has even started smiling which just melts my heart and makes all of the hard work of taking care of a new born worth it.
His first bath. His umbilical cord was attached until he was 3 weeks old, so he didn't get his first bath until then. He loved it, of course!
We blessed our little Brody last Sunday. It was such a special day. My parents flew in for it, Brandon's parents came, and Aunt Kim and cousin Avery were able to come.
We weren't able to get a family picture because Brandon left at 5:45 am for meetings, and didn't get home until the boys were napping. The joys of having a husband/dad in the Bishopric:)
This is late, but Happy Birthday, Porter! Our big boy turned 4 years old on January 24th. And boy, was he spoiled this year! His Grandma Perry was visiting to help with Brody, so we went to Chuck E. Cheese to celebrate. It was a surprise. We told him we were going to his Dr. appt. and he was going to get lots of shots. (I know, we were mean, but it sure made for a fun surprise!) When we drove up, he said, "Chuck E. Cheese! Mom, can we go to Chuck E. Cheese before my Dr. appt.?" Bless his little heart! He still thought he had to go to the doctor! When he found out, he had a grin on his face this big for every picture!
Hudson was not a fan of this ride. He plastered himself to the windshield! Like that could help him!
Porter sure had fun with his Grandma Perry that lives so far away!
And the entire time we were playing, this little guy was sleeping. (And don't you love the car seat blanket my mom made? It is sooooo nice! Thanks, Mom!)
Like I said, Porter was spoiled this year!
You can't go to Chuck E. Cheese without getting a picture with the mouse himself!
Porter has a friend that has a birthday the day after his. We did a combined party last year and that worked out well. We did it at our house, so this year, we had the party at Peyton's house. Tish did the whole thing (Thanks, Tish!) which worked out really good since I was trying to just survive with 2 little kids and a sweet bundle of joy!
Porter showing me his "Birthday Boy" badge. Peyton's in the background. I don't know why I didn't get a pic. with both of them.
Porter & Peyton are all boy and they wanted a ball party. So they got a ball party! Basketball, Football, Soccer, & Baseball were all played. I was impressed with some of the skills!
In a nut shell, we met at Ricks College, dated for 4 months, got engaged, and less than a year after we met, we were married. We both finished our schooling at Ricks and then Weber State. Brandon went on to the U of U. 51/2 years after being married we had our Porter and 21 months after that, we had our Hudson. In less than two years we doubled our family. We now have added another little boy, Brody, to our growing family. We live in Portland, Oregon where Brandon enjoys going to work and I enjoy staying at home with the boys.
