Family Pictures

Over Thanksgiving, my very talented sis-in-law took some family pictures of us. I love how they turned out, and I am so excited to have some pictures with Bridger in them. Thanks again Tiniel!

3 months old!

Bridger is 3 months old today. He is at such a fun age, he loves to cuddle, he loves to give big slobbery kisses, and he actually likes to sing! Seriously, I will sing him a song, and he tries to sing back to me, it is so cute! He just does very long coos, but I swear he is trying to sing:)

He also loves his bath time. He goes crazy in the tub, kicking and splashing, I think it's his favorite thing to do.

He is such a cuddle bug! I love it so much! When he gets fussy, I will put his cheek against mine, and he stops crying. When he is tired, he just want to be wrapped up and cuddled, and I just melt into a puddle of mush! I love that boy!

Crazy Day!

Okay, I had a really crazy day the other day, and looking back now it is kind of funny, but at the time it was crazy! I thought I would share:) It was a typical Thursday evening about 7 o'clock, Shawn was at his night class in Salt Lake (doesn't get home usually until about 10pm), and I was home with the boys and I was just about to start getting Ryker ready for bed when all of the sudden, I can hear water running, usually a calming sound, but this time it caused a little anxiety (we live on a 2nd floor condo, people live above us and below us) I run to the hall bathroom, and water is pouring out of the bathroom light fixture and fan. Right then, my initial thought is
AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH! Literally, I was thinking AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH! I then get buckets and towels and anything I can find to stop the water from doing any damage, bundle up my boys and haul them upstairs, and knock on the door. I was greeted by the single lady that lives above us, she was very frantic, and told me how her water faucet blew off when she was going to take a shower and she couldn't get the water to stop. I went to her bathroom to look and water was shooting out very forcefully like a fire hose. I had no clue how to turn the water off so I haul my boys from door to door looking for someone to help. One of our neighbors was home and came to help. He went to turn the water off by her water heater, and the handle broke off as when he went to turn it. I then had the exact same thought pop into my head as earlier.... AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH! The lady started trying to call the maintenance people for help, and I haul my boys back down to our apartment only to find that the water was now coming out of my hall lights and laudry room, and I could hear it running down the inside of the walls. I turned off the lights as to not get electrocuted, and tried to stop the water with the last towels we had, all while both of my boys were screaming. About an hour later, the police came, and my neighbor picked the lock and shut off the water to the whole building.....finally. When Shawn came home I think he was a little surprised at what he saw:)Needless to say,they had to rip up some of our carpet, and are going to have to replace our ceiling and walls:)I am just glad that we are renting, a lot of people own these things. Anyways that is my story, I hope you enjoyed:) MORAL OF THE STORY: life is an adventure, enjoy the journey!

Too Fast!

Bridger is growing up way way way toooooo fast! Last night he laughed out loud for the first time, it was so cute. Shawn was playing peekaboo with him and he didn't just giggle a little, he was laughing so hard it was the cutest thing! I wish I could have video recorded it! This picture is of him in the walker. He loves this thing even though his feet don't touch the ground. When I put him in it, he gets this look on his face like he is so big and proud of himself. And he loves it when Ryker pushes him in it.

This is what we woke up to this morning....6 inches of SNOW! Ryker was so excited so I thought we had better go play in it before it melted.

Okay, so this is Ryker and Shawn's almost nightly ritual. On the nights Shawn doesn't have class, when he walks through the door, Ryker usually goes and gets a pillow and starts the attack. Usually ending in a lot of wrestling and sweating and a ton of fun! They sometimes even come after me as you can see in the last picture:) Shawn is such a great dad!

Happy Halloween!!!!

For Halloween, Ryker dressed up as a duck, he was so excited to be a duck. We borrowed the costume from his cousin Jaxon. Bridger's costume was kind of last minute. It was three hours before our ward trunk or treat, and I didn't have a costume for him. I ended up cutting up an old pair of my black pants, and making a spider costume. I cut a ping pong ball in half for the eyes, I only wish I had a black shirt to go under it....oh well.

New Addition

Bridger Cameron Atwood was born on Aug 19, 2008, he weighed 7lbs, 11oz. 19 1/2 inches long, and we blessed him on Sept 27. We had a ton of support, and it was such a fun day.

I BLOG!!!!

Okay, I feel like Bob on the movie "What About Bob" when he is strapped to the sailboat and he is yelling "I SAIL, I SAIL!" I feel like I have finally faced my fears and become a blogger. I BLOG!!!
