Happy Father's Day

It has been such a wonderful and sweet experience watching Anthony be a father. He truly is the best dad--full of love and patience, and he lights up whenever he sees Liam. I knew he would be a great dad, but he really has surpassed any expectation I ever had. I love him so much.

Song Lyric Poster Giveaway

My wonderful and talented cousin, Aarean, just announced that her song lyric posters have been picked up by Deseret Book and are now being sold in their stores! Yahoo!! She is sooo excited about it, and everyone should go to her blog and check them out. And then go buy them at Deseret Book! I love them all, but my favorite is "As I Have Loved You."

Check them out at her blog. And post about it for a chance to win a free poster of your choice :)

Congrats Aarean!

Fun in the Sun!

I am loving the warm weather we have been having! The last two weekends we have packed our things and lounged pool side. I had heard that you are supposed to wait till babies are 3 months before you take them into the pool. (don't know if that's accurate, but I figured better safe than sorry) Liam is 2 weeks shy of 3 months, so he has yet to make his swimming pool debut. But he does love to lay on my lap and take in all of the action.

I was much more comfortable in a swimsuit is a different story! Anyone else feel like that?! As Bridget Jones would say, "I don't want anyone seeing my wobbly bits!" haha I am working on that lol

Here is my cute sister-in-law. She just had a baby 6 weeks after I did, and named him Micah. He is adorable, and so so tiny!

I LOVE summer!

Walking Group

Some girls in my apartment complex have recently started a little walking group with our cute babies. It is SO nice to get out of the house, be around other young moms and their babies, and get exercise and fresh air. And it's nice to have an excuse to shower and get ready for the day ha! Please tell me I am not the only new mom who sometimes just stays in pj's and doesn't leave the house for an entire day!

My friend Erica and I started walking several times a week, and we have three other girls who are starting to come, too. I am sure we look like a funny sight...a bunch of women pushing their babies in strollers across the street and along the road...well, maybe in Utah county that is actually a pretty normal sight.

Here I am with my cute little guy.

And here is Erica with her cute little man, Carter.

Darling little boy!

Another time we walked to the park and took some lunch. Liam is still too little to play or swing, so we just chilled on the blanket and enjoyed the sun. Hence the cute hat...that he didn't much care for!

Sleep is a wonderful thing!

I don't want to jinx it, but Liam has been sleeping through the night this week! I think he may be getting it! He had a 9 hour night, 6 hour night (that's better than the typical 3 hours!), and last night he slept 7 1/2 hours! The first time he slept 9 hours I thought something was wrong because I woke up at 7am and realized that was the first time I had woken up since going to bed at 10pm the night before ha! I can't tell you what a difference a full night's sleep makes. It is glorious :) Let's hope this continues!!

And this picture is just too cute! He loves falling asleep on his dad's lap:)
