1st Easter

Thanks to the Johnsons, we have a great picture of our fam on Keaton's first Easter. We took a small and slooooooowww ride on my brother's four-wheeler. I think Keaton really enjoyed it!

Uhmmmmm....yeah, we know!

Hey Everybody! After some gentle nudging/encouraging, we thought we'd better post an update. I know at least one or two people keep checking our blog for an update...and we appreciate that! This one is for you!

p.s. I'm really terrible at journaling, checking emails, and we are the only people on earth who do not "facebook." So keeping up this blog has been a struggle for me. I will try to be "better."

Ok...where to start?

Keaton (since our last post) laughs not only when tickled now...but he laughs when he thinks something is funny. This in itself just cracks me up. Sometimes he'll just start laughing out of the blue. I love that.

He crawls like mad. It didn't hurt that he got to watch his playmate (Ellis) get from here to there whenever she pleased...and fast! So, he observed and took off, too. Now I have to say, "Bye bye pretty decorations."

He already pulls himself to a standing position in his crib, on his activity table (thank you Mark and Brooke) and now pretty much everything else. I'm not sure if he'll be walking soon...but I am afraid.

K has been growing like crazy. He eats 3 large meals per day with snacks in between. He only likes we have to think of creative tricks to get him to eat his meat and veggies. Have you ever smelled baby meat in a jar...yuck! I wouldn't eat it either, K!

He prefers to take 2 two hour naps and sleeps a good 10 hours a night. (Except when he's sick-then he doesn't sleep at all).

He still has amazing red hair. Long enough for a sweet mohawk! I recently got some of my baby pictures...and I had some red hair too. Not, quite the vibrant red K has, but still now we know he gets it from both sides. It's official...he's got both our genes!

Ok...that's all for now. We'll work on more pictures and updates!

Fifteen Minutes of Fame!

Okay, it's more like 30 seconds of fame, but hey, we'll take it! The week before Thanksgiving, we took Keaton to the Cherry Creek Mall to get his picture with Santa. Channel 4 News happened to be doing a story on gift cards and so we got a little cameo. So funny! : )

Check out our cameo. There is a little advertisement before the news clip:

Five Days and Counting...

until I'm officially a stay-at-home mom. It will be bitter-sweet. More sweet than bitter. I apologzie for the looong post; however, I'm grateful we have survived thus far. Here is a collage of the last few weeks:

We went to the Botanic Gardens Pumpkin Patch with Tiff, Matt and Mackenna Mae. As you can see we dressed the babies in their halloween costumes. Mackenna is a banana and Keaton is a monkey...and we didn't even plan that! BFF esp, I guess! :) I think we have a new tradition.

Goodbye Auntie Krista and Uncle Justin! We are so sad to see you go, but so excited for the adventures ahead (and already on)! We got to hang out with them at the Snooze before they departed for Harare, Zimbabwe. They are on a year-long trek to Africa, Nepal, Russia, Guatemala, Central America and Europe. They'll sure be missed. To follow their travels, pray or offer support, check out their blog at

Brotherly love...nothing like having a 95 pound brother to lay right on top of your 14 pound body. I can't tell if Jack just loves Keaton that much, or is trying to SQUISH him out of the picture.
