K's last day of work was today! On Monday he starts with his new company and is really excited. We are excited to have him home for awhile too! Even though he hasn't been traveling the last couple weeks, he had a really big job to do with practically no help so he was working a lot of OT and we didn't really see him a lot. His ankle is getting better, it seems to like some support and feels ok when he has his steel toe boots on. At home walking around in his stocking feet it tends to hurt more, so some more rest is needed which is what we will be doing this weekend!
Again I didn't get any pictures of the new SUV yet...hopefully tomorrow. We just stayed home and did a bunch of laundry today. Tomorrow I have a couple of errands to run that need to get done this weekend.
Aaron has been doing a lot better with his sleeping even though he has still be cranky with the teething, the teething tablets I bought yesterday seem to be working! I checked tonight and that 2nd top tooth looks even more ready to pop through than before, I can see a 'line' of tooth now instead of a point. :)
Pretty consistently he has been sleeping from 7pmish to 7 or even 8am. Last night he went to bed 7:40 and he woke up at 7 this morning but then quieted himself down and stayed asleep until about 8:20. I actually took a shower before I got the kids up today. I usually take my shower during morning nap because I am just not a morning person and can have more time...although it changes all the time because I also used to work out during morning nap and take a quicker shower. Aaron's naps seem to be shortening a little, but it is working out ok because he is going to be earlier typically. Today his morning nap was really short but then I was able to tuck him back in for another hour for his afternoon nap.
We watched Rio tonight with Grace and she loved having movie time with daddy while I let Aaron play upstairs before bed. Did I tell you all I got an amazing deal on maternity clothes the other day?? 3 pairs of jeans and 2 shirts each just .97 cents! If I did..sorry I am pregnant! lol!
I think that is all the update for now...just looking forward to having a relaxing weekend with Daddy before me and the kiddos head to SD next weekend.

I can't remember if I post this picture of Grace already so it may be a repeat but its so cute how she digs in my closet and wears my high heels, especially since I really rarely wear them. Today was a pretty good day today, Aaron woke up at 6am but I gave him his paci and he fell back asleep until 740am and since he has been going to bed at 7pm I considered that pretty darn good! I am not sure if its all the teething or what but after he wakes from his afternoon nap he seems to be a bear until dinnertime and then that can be a struggle and then its like off to bed you go cranker!
I had to wait for the furnace guy to come and do a tune up on our furnace this morning so I was able to get some cleaning in and hopefully laundry finished up tomorrow after playgroup and groceries.
After we got the Expedition I was craving some Mexican food so we had dinner at a local restaurant. Boy is Aaron no fun to be around in the afternoons/evenings. The only saving grace was there was a screaming 2 year old little girl across from us that drew both of our kids attention and stopped Aaron from fussing about how he didn't want to eat his quesadilla and only eat guacamole. He did eventually start to chow down...but he can stall and fuss like a champ.

A picture of my first born cutie pie.
Tomorrow we are going to look at cars...need to find a new vehicle for running around with the kids and might as well get one that has third row seating now that the new little babe is on the way. Also we are going to get pumpkins tomorrow and Grace is thrilled that Daddy will be home and going with us. He has been working mad overtime the last 3 weeks and she is so excited. Her little life is just full of wonderful things this fall!
And for some reason I had to take a picture and post it of my yummy healthy lunch today. I made egg salad and then we had some kiwis for the first time. Of course my little Air Bear loved them...Grace took some convincing but ate her carrots real good (no ranch for her!). In the end she ate all her kiwis without too much fuss, but isn't funny how they act like you are giving them poison to eat?? Looking at this now makes me hungry too!

The birthday cake and the 'smash' cake I got free. I love how the colors turned out and I put those little frogs on the cake..they were like .50 cents each. And the birthday napkins..clearanced for a buck per package.
My sweet girl...so excited for her friends to come over before the party.
The birthday boy!
Birthday boy on the move...my mom says he will be running by the time we go camping for Thanksgiving and I think she is right, everyday he just picks it up a little more.
Eating his birthday dinner..chips, green jello, green grapes..hot dogs! The best! lol
The guests! Well at least the adults!
And Daddy of course. I didn't manage to get me...but I am glad I did manage to get some pictures, because I wanted to video tape more and I didn't! I only video taped Aaron doing his cake, which was a hoot because he put it all over his little blond bald head.

I was cleaning up my email just a minute ago and found this video I forgot to post! I can't believe I did because it is so hilarious. We went to the mall and were eating lunch and Grace and Aaron were playing together, just being silly tilting their heads back. But I got some of it on video and thought I would share!
I am going to try to post some birthday pictures and a blog tonight! Enjoy the cuteness!

My boy has been walking like crazy this past weekend. It's like all he needed to do was to take his first steps and he has been off! I am so proud of him and he is so proud of himself, you can just see it on his face. He grins such a big grin. He walks and walks and crawls when Grace is chasing him or he wants Grace to chase him. Or he wants to get somewhere super fast!
Also he has been sleeping so good as well. His naps are not as good sometimes but I will trade those for sleeping until 8 or 830 every morning. I can't remember the last time that he woke at 6am or earlier. The last 2 days he slept until 8:20 and I would say he sleeps until 7:30 or 8 pretty regularly now, which I am thrilled with. I don't know if it's because I have started giving him soy milk and he has been loving that or because his other bottom tooth popped through, but it could be both. He loves his soy milk and it sits well with him. His bottom tooth is coming in crooked though...which is a little bit of a worry to me. I will probably ask the pediatrician about it when I take him in for his 1 year appointment.
I am getting ready for Aaron's 1st birthday party on Saturday and already have a bounce house scheduled. I know that Aaron won't really know he had one...but since Grace's birthday is in Jan and her friends are going to be coming to the party, I decided to splurge since its our last good weather for awhile. Still not sure what I want to serve for dinner...(I am supposed to be making my lists right now)...but I will come up with something before Wednesday. (I better because that is when I am doing my grocery shopping!)
Some things that Grace is doing right now is she loves to play hide and seek. And he is becoming a really good hider as well. One time she hid and K couldn't find her and another time this weekend she hid and my dad couldn't find her. And she is so cute when she says, "Ready or not heres mine come!"
We also switched Aaron's car seat this weekend so he is sitting in his big boy car seat and I think he loves it. Although since I rode in the back with he kids this past weekend I think he wanted me to hold him because he was really really fussy when we were driving around. I think he was thinking, "Mom if your back here why am I stuck in this seat??"
Time to get off the computer and get back to my list, enjoy my boy walking! I think he is pretty darn cute myself!

This was today and I was trying to get a picture of these super cute slipper socks that I have been waiting forever to put on him. Since we got more rain today and some parts of Salt Lake even got snow and for sure the mountains did, I had to try them. They are 6-12 months and they fit perfectly. You can't really see them too well, but they are blue and brown and have this cute brown stitching. My friends mom sent them to me when Aaron was born-Thanks again Mrs. K!
Standing right in front of me this afternoon. I had the camera out to get Grace, and always try to get Aaron but he is just too darn wiggly.

I suppose that I could have looked online, but it sure was convient for you to give me that tip and we have dry erase markers too!

Look how long Aaron looks here! And he is wearing is little shoes...I forgot about that.
Look at that face!
Aaron loved looking at the ducks in the pond so much!
Today I was bored so we went over to the mall and had lunch and walked around. I wanted to see what size shoe Aaron is and see what kind of cute shoes were out there for him. I also looked at and picked up some maternity jeans and a cute top. I already can't fit into my jeans so I am going to be buying more maternity clothes most likely.
