House Hunting, Part II

This week's life lesson has been on compromising. As much as I want it all, the open floor plan, the hardwood floors, the updated kitchen, the jet tub, the big closets, the nice neighborhood - I just can't have it all! We have a budget, and I keep stretching it more and more and more. We had a regrouping talk about what is important to us, and where we want to be as far as price so I think we will hopefully be making a decision this weekend. That's both scary, and also exciting.

While we were out and about, we found a thai restaurant, and had some yummy papaya salad, along with some panang curry and pad thai.

Thanks for following along!

Happy 9 Months!

Seriously, where has the past 9 months gone?!!! In three months time, my baby boy will be one!!! That completely baffles me.

Last week, our friend's daughter came home from school, looked at Mason, and said, "Mason looks like a little boy today." And that perfectly sums up his growth the past month. He is starting to lose that baby look, and to start to look like a little boy. I'm sad, but I'm also glad for him, and to see him continue to grow and learn. He is overly active, crawling everywhere. He hasn't yet crawled on his knees, just his typical army crawl. He holds his bottle on his own now, although he prefers for us to hold it for him. He loves to look around, and he loves to discover new things. With the move, I haven't been able to schedule a 9-month checkup for him yet, but I really need to, as I am super curious about his stats. His favorite food is Apple + Chicken, and his little puffs (Sweet Potato). He is a fantastic road tripper, as I have been lugging him everywhere between Oregon and Washington State. He likes to kick me in bed, and he hates anything close to his feet. If he feels anything at his feet, he will kick. He loves to take over the bed, and doesn't like to give me any room to sleep.

As he is getting older, he needs more things to do and I am starting to feel a bit run down as I don't have any ideas what to do with him. He's not big enough to go to the playground, but he loves to move around, and play. Any suggestions? I'm all ears!

hey sugar!

Best friends share their favorite beauty products with you. And my girlfriend sure did share, and I love it! I was a previous Vaseline addict. I've tried too many products that sit on top of my lips, and does nothing for my lips after a while. This is a serious my favorite product for my lips right now. It moisturizes my lips very well, and makes all my lipsticks easier to glide on. My lips used to get chapped more often, but now I totally use this, maybe once a day.

Have you tried this? What are your thoughts?

Have a great weekend!

Easter Bunny

Mason had his first pictures with the Easter Bunny. See how he does!

"Um, seriously, is this really happening?"

"Am I the only one seeing this?"

"Okay, one more look to make sure that I'm not crazy."

"Uh, yeah, I definitely don't like this guy!"

"Maybe my vision is bad. Let me just double check."

"Yeah, definitely don't like him."

"Please come get me Mommy!"

Happy Easter to you and your family!!! We are counting down to General Conference weekend, and Mason's very first Easter!
