"It's filled with love,"

Isaac said yesterday.

I took Joshua to the doctor yesterday for his well-child checkup. His stats are as follows:

Height-30 1/2" = 38 percentile
Weight- 21.1 lbs = 10 or 11 percentile
Head Circumference- 19" = 82 percentile

I love this big head.

Just one of those days

Eating the wet wipes he pulled out. You can't see the trail behind him leading from his room.

His bedroom

Living room book shelf

The bottom of my pantry

My pile of once folded laundry

And we were even gone for half the day!


Halloween Party

Pumpkin Patch

Late post I know... but a few days before Halloween, I took Joshua to a pumpkin patch here in Elk Grove. He loved the horse and calves, hated the pigs, and climbed on some hay. I also bought him his own mini pumpkin. The tears and runny nose in these pictures are the result of me trying to help Joshua carry the pumpkin upstairs to our apartment since it was just barely too heavy for him to carry himself. He did not like me even thinking about touching the pumpkin so I ended up having to sandwich the pumpkin between Joshua and I as I walked up the stairs so that he didn't think I was touching it. He was all smiles when we got inside though.

Will Walk for Cheetos

Unfortunately I can't flip this video right side up so you have to tip your head to watch it. It's still pretty cute though.

I always thought it was gross when my sisters would drink after their toddlers or finish things that had already been semi-slobbered on. It doesn't even phase me now that I have my own slobbery, snot-nosed kid though. The other day I was sitting on the floor eating an apple and he decided that we should share. How could I turn this face down?

Love those buns

This is how Joshua prefers to roam around now.

3 Years

Isaac turned the big 2-7 recently. Here's a picture of him with his cake. (Those are not my man hands by the way.) I wanted to post this picture from our anniversary a couple of months ago. We seldom take any pictures together. We've been married for 3 whole years now! Whew time flies.

Camping at Manresa

I never posted these pictures of our camping trip back from August. Joshua and I went camping with Isaac's family at the beach for a whole week. It was so much fun! I got totally fried, and Joshua got a little rosy too. We played at the beach every day and went to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk one night too. Isaac wasn't able to vacay with us because he was on a business trip the same week so that's why he's not in any of our pictures.

I was so proud of myself because I set up the whole tent on my own. So I had to take a picture to show Isaac.
Week-long babysitters :) Shea and Trevor
Joshua loved eating the sand

Carosel at the boardwalk. Joshua was unsure the whole time. And this picture doesn't do my suburn and aloe justice.

Canoe Trip

Every year just before the 4th of July Isaac's aunt and uncle take everyone on a canoe trip that they've been doing for 20 years. Everyone packs a picnic dinner and blankets, and we borrow the stake's canoes. We canoe across the lake to the same spot every year, unpack our blankets, and eat our dinner. Then we sit around and talk until it gets dark. We go at night because Isaac's uncle is an astrologer extraordinare, and he uses his laser pointer to point out all of the constellations. I never know what he's talking about but I still think it's fun. Isaac's mom always brings glow sticks so we can take our famous glow stick picture and that way we can see where everyone is when we canoe back since it's pitch black. I've been twice now, and it's a lot of fun. My pictures are really lame though because it was so dark that the flash hurt everyone's eyes so no one wanted to look and because I couldn't see what I was taking pictures of. I just knew there were people there because of the glow sticks. But these are for posterity! Oh, and it was more fun because Joshua got to stay with a babysitter.

Getting Bigger

I'm skipping a couple of events that I'll have to come back to since those pictures are on Isaac's computer. But here are some pictures I took of Joshua yesterday. I got some bins down out of the closet to put away some clothes he's grown out of, and I ended up leaving the bins out all day because they are all he wanted to play on. He's really good at standing up now, and I've attached one video of how fast he's crawling. Hopefully he'll walk soon! These pictures and videos make him look surprisingly happy when in reality most of the day he was whining and had a fever. The pictures of him standing up against me are what Isaac calls his 'ugly faces'--I think they're funny. You can see his four bottom teeth though!

Love this


It's modern with a vintage flavah-flave.
