President's Day Weekend!!!

What a fun weekend we had!

Jared, Cayden and I left Friday morning for Utah to spend the weekend with Family. I was really nervous to fly with Cayden because I didn't want him to cry for the entire flight. He fights going to sleep and can get quite loud. So we had a bottle prepared to give him so that he would calm down if he was crying and so that his ears wouldn't bother him. We got on the plane and Cayden fell right to sleep. Then they made us get off the plane becuase there was a leak in the hydrolic system and we had to wait for a new plane. So of course as soon as we got back into the airport Cayden woke up. We only had to wait about 15 mins. for the new plane and we boarded and Cayden was asleep again just after take off. He was such a trooper. I had to wake him up though because he had quite the stinky diaper. Its not easy changing a baby in a plane bathroom. But Cayden was a perfect baby on the plane.

When we got into Salt Lake Jared's sister Jessica picked us up from the airport. Her girls were very excited to meet Cayden. Tayler held Cayden's hand for most of the car ride out to the house. She couldn't wait to hold him. So when we got to the house we pulled him out of his seat and put him on the floor and Tayler and Rylee got to him as fast as they could. It was fun to watch them with him. After lunch we just hug out and talked until Jared's mom got home. At one point Cayden started to get fussy so Rylee started to sing to him. She sung "Once Upon a Dream" from Sleeping Beauty. It was SOOOO CUTE!!! They stayed and had dinner with us, hung out a little more then went home. But before going home Jared did let Tay paint his nails blue! They looked so wonderful!!!

Cute Cousins!!!

Rylee was so good holding Cayden

Saturday we got up and after breakfast we all got ready and went into town to visit Grandma B. She met Cayden when she was here in January but every time she sees him its like meeting him all over again. It was a nice visit and I had fun looking through her scrapbook and seeing pictures of her and Grandpa B. when they were younger.

After our visit with Grandma B. we went home for lunch and then went up to Jessica's to play games and hang out. Sean made us burgers on the grill (even though it was freezing outside). They were AMAZING as always. THANKS SEAN!!!! We played a fun game of Golf (cards) and with a little help from Rylee and Tay everyones scores were pretty close.

Sunday we went to church and then after lunch we took Cayden down to American Fork to meet his Great Grandma Crabb and his Uncle Ronnie. It was a nice visit and they loved seeing Cayden. Grandma Crabb is so cute when she plays with her great grandbabies. After we left Grandma Crabb's house we went back home and played a game of Dominoes, Mexican Trash Train. I totally won. SO of course I had a great time playing.

Monday came and that meant that Jared and I had been married for 2 years. It was fun just to be able to spend the day together for our anniversary. I' m so lucky to be married to such an amazing man. The past two years together have been amazing and I can't wait to see what the future will bring us.

My wonderful husband (Jared got in trouble for being on the beam)

All in all it was a wonderful weekend. We were sad to have to come home and get back to reality. But that's the way life goes. Jared had to go back to school today. But we can't wait until April, when he graduates.

We hope everyone had a great long weekend as well. LOVE TO ALL

No sleep for the weary.

This morning I wasn't feeling well so I asked Jared if he would get up with Cayden. An hour or so later Jared came back to bed and put Cayden in his bed. In a matter of minutes Cayden was wide awake. He was giggling and kicking his legs. Every now and then he would just crack himself up. He was having fun watching his bear mobile. As tired as we both were we enjoyed listening to Cayden. I finally got up to get the camera to take pictures and this was the result.

The flash kinda freaks him out

So I turned the flash off for this one

By the time I thought of recording him he got silent. But its still pretty fun to watch him.

We hope everyone had a GREAT weekend.

Growing Boy

Only 2 more days and our little Cayden will be 2 months old. I can't believe how fast time goes by. Its almost strange looking at pictures of him when he was forst born because he is so different. He looks like a little man. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful little boy. We absolutley LOVE being parents. Its so much fun to just sit on the couch and stare at Cayden. He is starting to get so smiley. He follows things with his eyes now too. The other day he followed Jared across the room. And today he was staring intently at the button on his pants pocket and then proceeded to grab at it. Its so much fun watching him grow!!!

I love the outfit I put him in today so I had to take pictures. What do you think?

Last night for our Family Home Evening activity we decorated our apartment a little more. We are quite pleased with the outcome. Its nice to have things on the walls. It feels more like home.
