Welcome to 2012!

It would be an understatement to say that it's been a while since I blogged... I got a text this morning from my brother that said that he was "appalled at no blog posts for the last four months!" Yep- those were his words. I told him that my excuse is that I loathe posting pictures on my blog because it seems to take for-e-ver. But I decided to sit down and just do it! First I'd like to give a little update on each of us:

Randy- Still LOVING his job with the Family History Library downtown. Almost every day he comes home with a smile on his face and at least three stories to share with me :) I need to be better at not rolling my eyes at how excited he gets over finding (seemingly random to me) death records, birth certificates, connections to other people, etc. He is such a good dad and husband and always treats us well. We love it when Randy gets home from work and we especially love the weekends!

Emily- Going crazy with packing, trying to get Parker to sleep, trying to keep a clean house and get meals on the table. I feel like my life is pretty much the same every day- feed, change, sleep, repeat. But the stay-at-home life is getting easier.

Parker- Has two teeth!! He was unbelievably ornery for a week, and I realized a little too late that he was teething. He is on the verge of crawling, and can now sit himself back up after laying down. He is still learning how to sleep through the night, but usually wakes up at 4 or 5 am. We love to capture him laughing hysterically at random things, and hopefully I will be able to post a video of him laughing at paper. Or maybe him yelling at a spoon...

The biggest change of all is that we bought a house! We are moving this weekend, and I can't wait to get settled in our new place. I am excited that the kitchen is nice and big, and I won't have to use a 2x2 foot counter to prepare all of our meals! There are some fixes that need to be done, but all in all we are really excited.

His hair is getting so long! This was taken after I took his hat off, and his hair was sticking out in all directions. Such a cutie :)

I love seeing all of Parker's rolls when he takes baths! He was just chilling on the floor with his towel after his bath.

Halloween time- we got good use out of this costume. I think he wore it at least 3-4 times. What a good sport :)


  1. Finally! It's nice to see that one of my sisters will update her blog. I like the pics. :)

  2. Glad to see you back in the blogging world again! I can't wait to see pictures of the new house! Sounds like y'all are keeping busy.
