Kamden and Boston

These are already outdated, but I had to post some at least a bit newer. Kam's 6 month bday was Friday, October 28th! He loves applesauce, slobbery kisses, and outside. He is a monster for Halloween, and I'll have to post pictures of him in his costume soon :) Brady and I are busy and hardly ever see each other, but doing great! He graduates in December!

Kamden is 2 months old today! He celebrated by rolling from his belly to his back, yikes, we won't be able to set him just anywhere anymore. He smiles and coos at us every day now and slept 8 hours straight this week for the first time...although apparently it was a one time thing, because he hasn't done it again. My favorite nickname for him is Kamcake. He makes our day every time he smiles at us and I go to bed at night with slobbery shirts and knots in my hair from him grabbing clumps of it and holding on for dear life...I swear he does it on purpose :)

Annette and Payson visiting Kamden a few weeks ago. Payson and Kam are buddies.

Grandma Pat's 75th Birthday Party!!! Kam loves the water and being outside. We had a cute swimming suit for him, and he ended up stripped down to a diaper anyway because it was so hot.

Kamcake all studded up for Fathers Day. This outfit was supposed to be for Jess's wedding but he was too small, and now he will be too big to wear it for Shay's wedding...go figure.

YeeHaw, we went to the Horse Pulls last weekend to cheer on the Hillyard's family's teams. Sadly, I didn't see any mullets this year, which was disappointing because I spotted 3 people with mullets last year.

The guys were just chillin in their handsome stripey shirts. Kam is about 6 weeks old in these pics and loves to be spoiled by Grandpa Mike and Daddy.

Congrats Jess and Jason!!

Jess and Jason got married May 7th and she was such a beautiful bride. I officially have a brother now for the first time. Kamden was 9 days old so it was crazy trying to take care of him and be a part of all the festivities, but it we all survived and it was a great day. We love you, Mr. and Mrs. Mietchen!!

Here are some random pics of Kamden when he was still tiny. I have more recent ones, but not with me, so I'll post them later. He was born April 28, 2011 and is 7 lb. 10 oz. and 20 in. long. He had a bruise on his head because he was stuck for a while on his way out, but it went away pretty quickly. He also had jaundice and had to be on billi lights for 5 days, which was a bummer because we couldn't hold him for a week when he came home from the hospital. We love him so much and are so grateful he chose our family!!! He is smiling and cooing now and makes us laugh every day. Brady and I still can't believe we are parents...it just doesn't seem real, but we sure love having a little buddy.

Brady is 26!

For Brady's 26th Bday, I surprised him and planned a 2 night trip to Bear Lake and invited his and my family. Everyone was able to make it and we had a blast together, just eating, sledding, and swimming in the pool. It was a fun getaway and a good surprise for Brady (he didn't know what we were doing until we showed up at the condos in Bear Lake).
We had a paint nail polish party and all the girls (and Payson--Sorry Corey, I couldn't resist) had matching toes all weekend!

Christmas 2010

Merry Christmas! OK, I know it has been a million years since I posted anything, but we haven't had internet since we left NM. These pics are from Christmas. We had a blast staying in our PJs all day eating stocking candy and playing Wii and Ticket to Ride. My dad picked this year's decorations in honor of baby Herd who will be coming around April 21st. Too bad he didn't get to see the tree, complete with a car mat rug for the tree skirt. He would have loved it :) Life is great. Brady is doing really well in school even though he has 17 credits this semester (yikes) and I am just working in HR at Conservice still and really like it. We still haven't come up with a name for the baby...any suggestions? I haven't loved pregnancy, but am surviving it ;) Jess will be getting married May 7th, so we are really excited for her and Jason. I will finally have a brother...and a baby, all within 2 weeks! It is going to be an eventful spring for our family.
