Busy Busy

I know it's been a while since my last update, but I honestly didn't have almost anything to update the blog about. Then, this past week, a ton happened! So here we go...
TJ and I drove up to Squaw Peak one night to look at the view. On the way up there, we saw something pretty amazing...
Steven has now starting smiling all the time! I love it so much
My parents came to visit over the weekend and we decided it was a perfect time to go hiking! It was so much fun! TJ forgot to put on sunscreen and so tried another tactic to protect his neck from getting burned.
We saw some people rock climbing and I started wishing I was doing it... So, when I found a good spot, I couldn't help but do a little climbing myself! This picture doesn't show it very well, but I got pretty high!
Steven found it very relaxing
We had a really fun time and it was so gorgeous! We decided we're definitely going to have to do a lot more hiking this summer.
Also, while my parents were here, my Mom got some sewing projects done that we had talked about when she was here after steven was born. I, of course, hadn't gotten them done. I'm so glad she did though because I think they're so cute!
Then, on friday, my best friend from back home got married! It was so exciting!! TJ and I went to the sealing and then stuck around for the reception afterward. It was beautiful and she was beautiful and we all had so much fun.
Steven even made a new friend while we were taking pictures outside the temple. He honestly wouldn't leave Steven alone! His Mom kept taking him away, and he would come running back. Eventually, however, it got a little out of hand and he started trying to shake the car seat, so we had to keep a close eye on him...
Then, father's day was so much fun too! I took some pictures of Steven and I to put on a card for TJ.
Last of all, TJ's been working really hard to get Steven to sit up. I'm not really sure how much this video means... I kind of think TJ just balanced him the right way. But who knows! Maybe our child's just even more amazing than we realized! Oh, and I don't know why the movie is sideways... I definitely didn't record it that way!

We went to the Doctor's today for Steven's 2 month check-up. The Doctor says he looks great! He now weighs 13.27 lbs and is in the 84th percentile! I guess I don't have to worry about him not eating enough! His head circumference is 15.77 in which puts him in the 52nd percentile. Now for length, the nurse only measured him at 22.5 in which only puts him in the 33rd percentile. I, however, would have to dispute that finding. The way she measured him was by laying him on the bed that has that paper cover on it, and then marking where his head and feet were, then measuring between those marks. After she did that, though, I layed him back down, and his feet reach at least an inch past where she marked. I'm not bitter though. I just know my baby's better than the 33rd percentile and that's all that counts, right?
Anyway, after all that was done and the doctor had checked on him, it was time for the sad part - the shots. It was probably the saddest thing ever. Steven really isn't a crier (which I am so grateful for) and so I was not prepared for what was coming. He cried SO HARD and it was the worst thing ever. I wanted to punch the nurse for making my baby cry that much. I started tearing up, it was so bad. Not that anyone, like my husband, was there to comfort me. No, no. TJ was cowering in the corner avoiding the needles and his terrorized child and heartbroken wife. It's ok though. We just see now who's going to teach our children to be brave...
ANYWAY, overall, it wasn't too bad of a day. And now, to make this post a little more interesting, here's a picture and a little video of my adorable child taken a few days ago. I'm really just looking for an excuse to post these...

2 Months!

I can't believe it's been two months!! It's kind of a weird feeling because that seems like so long, and yet not so long all at the same time. Looking back at pictures from the hospital, he's grown so much! He's baby-talking all the time now and I think it's the cutest thing ever. I love the fact that he's more alert every day so I can actually interact with him. I feel like he might actually be starting to have some faint idea who I am... I hope. :)

Doesn't he look so much more grown up compared to the first week we brought him home?
And he pretty much has the cutest Dad ever, too... and makes the cutest little super hero in his cool little super hero cape that Katy made him for Christmas.

It's just fun having my tiny little super guy around :)
