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!

So cute!!!! Looks like you have been up to a lot lately! Impressive that Steve wasnt even using his hands to balance either...way to go little guy! And I like the canopy over the crib!!

Wow, you guys have been busy!! Sounds like you're having lots of fun. The hike looked so beautiful. And I'm SO jealous that you got to see a moose. And Steven is cute, but even cuter when he smiles. Love it!!

1) Love the moose video! They're such ugly animals.

2) So, Baby Steve likes the carrier we got him a little better now?

3) Great pic of Julia holding Baby Steve up, like in the Lion King. :]

4) Cute stuff your mom made for the nursery.

5) Best comment ever from Teej about how Baby Steve had to have been balancing for, *easily*, 30 seconds -- after maybe 4.2 seconds had gone by. :}}
