3 weeks old - Getting Bigger

I'm growing by the day, how can you not love my cheeks!

Nacho giving Koda a Kiss

Nacho is finally gaining the courage to buddy up with Koda.

Trying to calm Koda down


Crystal and I taking turns trying to put Koda to bed. Karissa always told us that he was most active at night, i guess we believe her now.

Ready to go hiking!

I guess Crystal is just getting Koda ready for next spring with his hiking pack. Crystal has found a use for this around the house, he loves it. We also think he is a big fan of this position, he has been use to it over the past 9 months with Karissa.

Koda loves the swing!

video
Thanks Brett and Emily for letting us barrow your swing, Koda loves it!

Loooooooooonnnnnnnnnggggggg Night!


Well Koda's sleeping schedule is completely backwards. He likes to sleep during the day and that means awake all night. Crystal and I are on swing shifts until he can figure out that he lives in Utah and not Australia. Even though he keeps us up all night we love him so much, his faces, noises, and wiggles are the best.

Give me that bottle!

Koda loves to eat! whenever you feed him he has to have his hands on the bottle. It will only be a matter of time before he feeds himself. In this picture you can really see how his face is filling out.

Adoption Day!


November 10, 2009 - this is the official day that we signed the adoption papers. This is Haylie (left) and Loni (right) our case workers. Haylie worked with us and Loni worked with Karissa. Just want to say thank you to you both for all your help - your the best. For the record we heard that Karissa was AMAZING in front of a hard nose judge, your such a strength to our little family Karissa. We love you!

Night of Seinfeld

Like father, Like Son

My First BLOWOUT!!!!!!!

This was funny, I was in the living room when I heard Crystal yell for me. I ran in and saw that Koda had dropped the bomb as she was changing him, it must have went 3 feet and of course I was able to clean it up, Thanks Crystal

2 Weeks Old!!!!!!


Koda had his two week check up today and is doing great! He weights 6.9 LBS and is still 19 inches long. Time is flying by.

Kodas First Real Bath

video
Little Koda was so cute. He didn't know what to think about bath time. It's funny because the bath basin was so big and so he kept slipping down to the bottom making it hard to wash him with ease. His little whimper was so cute though! He survived though and smelled so good!

One Week Old!!

Today is Kodas one week birthday - time is flying by. Pretty soon he will be dominating the basketball court.

Hello Doc

Koda's first doctors appointment - he was so good, he was back to his birth weight in 4 days - Which is fantastic. Also his Bilirubin was normal, Yeah!!!!

My Bouncy Chair

Crystal took this picture - Koda had the hiccups and the chair was bouncing without even turning it on. He always has the hiccups!

Kodas Friends

Koda already has to fight of the ladies. He better get use to it!

Very Proud Dad!

Bart loves to hold Koda - last night he just held him for hours singing primary songs until Koda fell asleep. Koda is the only one that can tolerate Barts voice.

Hello Grandpa Marks!

Koda melted Grandpas heart as soon as he looked into his eyes!

Nite Nite you two

What a long day of eating, pooping, and sleeping.

I can't believe he didn't cry once, I thought for sure he would be thinking, "what the heck are these two rookies doing to me"?
