Here is a quick run down of what went on since I last posted...
Halloween was a lot of fun! Connor was Buzz Lightyear and looked so dang cute. We went to our wards Trunk r Treat and had some yummy chili. And then Halloween night we went with our friend Amanda and her kids and brother and sisters to a fun park that had a booths of games set up for the kids to play. I think next year will be a lot more fun for Connor and he will actually know what is going on!
Thanksgiving we went to California. It was nice to get away and relax. James took the whole week off of work so we drove to my Aunt Marlene's house Sunday night. We stayed the first night there and then spent the rest of the nights at my cousin Brenda's house. We had so much fun playing with her 3 adorable girls. They were cute with Connor and kept trying to teach him how to read :) I thought I took more pictures while we were there but I guess I only took a couple of Connor. I wish I got some of the girls....I'll have to check if Janalee has any.
This Christmas was so much fun watching Connor get excited about his new toys! Christmas Eve we had a party at my parent's house with James' family too. Then we spent the night at my parent's and spent Christmas morning with them and went over to James' parent's house that evening. We are so grateful that we have both of our families living close so we can be around them during the holiday's!
Well current news...
Connor is almost 1 years old!! I cannot believe how fast my little boy is growing up. It makes me sad but then again I am enjoying every stage he is going through. He has taken a couple of steps but he still prefers to crawl. He has really good balance but once he notices that he is standing by himself he makes himself fall. I'm sure he will be walking soon once he gets more confidence! He does like to walk while pushing things. His favorite thing to push is this little stool my mom has at her house, and he always has to put a toy on it to give it a ride :) He is also such a big eater. I think he would eat all day if I let him. Whenever we are eating he will start smacking his lips and crying until we give him something. I honestly don't know what his favorite food is because he eats everything!! He knows how to wave hello and goodbye and claps his hands. He also gives big open mouth kisses and sometimes bits a little when he gives me kisses haha! We are done with breastfeeding. He made it easy to stop by gradually breastfeeding less and less and started to prefer having a bottle instead. We love our little guy so much! He is such a happy boy and we have a blast playing with him everyday.
Well James and I have been staying busy. James has been working a lot of over time so I feel like I don't see him as much anymore :( But it is nice to see the extra money on the paychecks :) I started taking some cake decorating classes and I am loving it! I told everybody in our families that I will be making their birthday cakes this year so I can practice! I also got a gym membership at the gym my mom goes to and I have been going quite a bit. I love it and feel so much better after working out!
Well I believe that is all of the news we have for now. I hope 2010 is treating everybody great so far!!
