Lasting moments

Aren't they so dang cute. Joshua and Mike have the same smile.
Joshua loves spending time with his grandparents. He holds up his head so well mainly because he has a little head.
I can't tell who is enjoying grandpa's story time more Joshua or Allora?

One morning I had to run an errand and I left Mike in charge of dressing Joshua. When I came home Mike had dressed Joshua in cool boardshorts and a t-shirt. I would say it is a pretty styling outfit.

Joshua's blessing

What a wonderful day. Joshua was blessed today. Mike gave a beautiful blessing and bore his testimony in sacrament meeting. He explained how we choose our son's name. When I was on my mission and felt inspired to name my first son Joshua, Mike asked why that name. I just knew it needed to be his name. Mike then decided to read in the old testiment and read all about Joshua. He had to know more about the person if that was the name we were going to give our son. When he was done reading the old testiment he knew Joshua was a good name after a very righteous person. We gave our son the middle name of Robert after Mike's grandpa, who had influenced his life and was the father figure for him. Robert was a man of service and devotion. He loved to help in the community and treasured his family. We are so happy to have Joshua as a part of our family. His sweet spirit fills our lives with happiness. He is a joy. I am grateful for the gospel in our life. I could never raise a family without it. I'm know I can recieve relation to help me know how to raise our sweet little boy. The gospel is true! Families are forever.


Sunday Walks

Today was such a beautiful day. After sunday dinner we all went on a walk. Bryce and Mike bundled Abram and Joshua up in their coats. They looked halarious. Melissa and I decided that we carry the 6-7 pound babies and our husbands can carry the 11-12 pound babies.



Joshua has been so much fun. We love him to death. This month has flown by. Mike said his favorite time with Joshua is when he is sleeping. I believe that is because when a baby sleeps well it makes for fun times when he's awake. If he doesn't sleep well then that makes a very fussy baby and a tired wife. We can't imagine life without him.

House Updates

Our house is finally to the finish work. We are getting really excited. Mike has spent hours cleaning and painting the house. While I am busy being mom. We had no idea what colors to paint the house so the same day we painted we picked our colors. It turned out pretty good for not putting much thought into it.
Janet, Mike and Bryce just painting away
