My camera threw up pictures

I haven't been very good at updating our blog about what we have been up to. While most days we spend at home in our pajamas or running to Target, we do shower, brush our hair and get out every now and again. Here are a bunch of pictures of what we have been up to:

Went to Palm Springs for our friend Kristi's Ironman:

Cole watching tv with Chad, and looking pretty cool I'll say.

We got our very 1st real Christmas tree. (It took us 2 weeks to actually decorate it)

Cole met Santa, wasn't too much of a fan.

Hanging out in our pjs (since this is real life)

Girls Night Out with girls from my ward. I just have to say how lucky I am to have so many friends, the ward we are in is really the best!

Went to my work Christmas party at Lucky Strike. Love my boss! I start working January 7th and she is letting me work from home.

Last weekend we went to the Grove in LA. They have fake snow, a great farmers market (yummy crepes) and awesome shopping. We put Cole in the Bjorn for the 1st time and he loved being able to look out at all the people.
It took even longer than this to get there, gotta love LA traffic.

TV and Treats, a great Monday morning

3 Months Old

This month has been my favorite so far. The first two months, those were really tough, and it still is hard but there are more rewards this month. Cole is all smiles, he is such a happy boy as long as it isn't nap time or time to eat.  He has no problem letting us know it.is.time. He also started laughing this past week, talk about melting my heart. I don't think I have ever loved any other sound more in my life. He plays a lot more and loves his play mat that lights up and has music. I lay him on that while I make dinner and I love to hear him talk and entertain himself. He loves to talk to his dad, when Chad comes home they tell each other about their day, this also melts my heart.

He is sleeping better than he did last month, still wakes up once or twice but he goes back down to sleep really well.  He slept 7 hours straight one night and I have never loved him more.  He loves kids, whenever we are around them he stares and sometimes lets out a shout at them just to make his presence known. I think he wants to get up and play already. 

I love being this little guys mom, he really is so sweet and has a cute little personality. It is so fun now that he knows who I am and actually likes me and doesn't just look at me like his food source.

Thanksgiving Recap

This year for Thanksgiving we drove up to St. George to spend the week with Chad's family. Kristi, Kiel and the kids drove down from Bountiful also.  We had a great time at his parents home in St. George, the weather was perfect, low 70s and we enjoyed being escaping from LA and being in a small town with some fresh air. We drove up to Snow Canyon for a picnic lunch and a hike, walked down to the river and threw rocks, ate a lot of food, went on a bike ride and enjoyed being together. We made a pit stop in Vegas to meet up with some friends, I was able to enjoy a relaxing massage, we went out to dinner and saw the new Cirque Du Soleil show Zarkana, and did a little shopping. Cole even rode in a limo for the first time!
3 generations - Brent, Chad and Cole

I couldn't believe how many pumpkin pies there were at Costco

The cutest little turkey bum

Claire was such a good babysitter and loved playing with Cole

Can't take the California out of Chad

Grandma had Luke and Claire ask each of us what we were thankful for before we ate dinner

We did a little shopping at the St. George craft fair.

Cole was partying too hard and passed out in Chad's arms at lunch, something he rarely does.

Kristi brought this play pad for Cole and he LOVES it (if only the music didn't get stuck in my head)

Limo Ride, he has no idea what is going on

Buffet anyone?

Cole hanging out in the room in Las Vegas


It doesn't get better than this (minus my baby voice)
