"In our search to obtain relief from the stresses of life, may we earnestly seek ways to simplify our lives. May we comply with the inspired counsel and direction the Lord has given us in the great plan of happiness. May we be worthy to have the companionship of the Holy Ghost and follow the guidance of the Spirit as we navigate this mortal journey. May we prepare ourselves to accomplish the ultimate purpose of this mortal test- to return and live with our Heavenly Father."

6 months


This little man turned 6 months old on the 18th
He has been such a joy to our family. I am so grateful for his happy little personality. 
 -He is so easy to get a smile from him and he will smile at anyone really.
-He loves, loves, loves bath time.  I get soaked from all his splashing that he does.  You can just see the excitement on his face when he's in the water.
-He has the biggest head out of all my kids.
-He wears mostly 9 months clothes but he'll fit into some 12 month
-not sure of his weight, I take him to his doctor on Wednesday
-He loves most baby food that I have offered him.  He is still nursing and takes formula.
-He has only rolled from back to tummy once.  He wants to do it all the time he just doesn't have it quite down yet.
-His sleeping at night is still very random. Some nights he'll wake up twice, other nights it seems like he'll be up every hour.
-His naps are becoming more predictable.  He usually takes a quick snooze in the morning.  Then another nap after lunch and then one more around 4.  He is ready for bed by 730-8:00 at night.
-He loves to chew on his fingers.
- If he's not wearing socks he loves to play with his toes.
-He is still so stuffy in his nose. 
-He loves to watch the other kids play.
-He likes helping Chad mow the lawn.
Our family has been so blessed by this little guy.  He has been such an awesome baby. I couldn't have asked for a better caboose.
