I tried out two new recipes this week. They were delicious!!!! I made the Olive Garden Zuppa Tuscana Soup & Crockpot Enchiladas. I love food and trying new recipes. I will post the recipes soon. I wish I had taken pictures...oh well. Pictures of food from a home camera don't always look too appetizing.

Growing Up

My little baby doesn't feel like such a little baby anymore. Koda is getting so big. Part of me is so excited for what he will do next, but part of me is sad and misses the baby stage. I wish I could freeze time for a little while. I think moving Koda to his toddler bed is almost as hard on Bart and I as it is for him.

Koda always screams for his food when he can see me making it. And not just little screams, but a full on tantrum. So, I thought that it was time to have him help me make his meals. He loves this so much more. What a way to replace tantrums with smiles. In this picture he is helping me make him a sandwich.

He can go down the stairs front-ways. This can be quite scary for me.

He can climb up on the stove. I'm trying to teach him "hot". So's working. He's not touching the burners when I'm cooking.

And drum roll........
Koda can eat by himself. He loves it!!! He normally downs his food so fast, I can't keep up. He gets inpatient when I don't get the food to his mouth fast enough. Now that he feeds himself he has been forced to slow down. He loves this new found independence. And so do I. :)

Holding Kashe

For the longest time Koda has been sick and so I have kept Kashe away from him. But now that he's better, he loves time with his little brother.

What's he looking at?

Blowing bubbles...

Classic tantrum. Kashe is all ready looking on and learning from his big brother. :)

Koda the Big Brother

Koda loves his little brother Kashe. Notice how he keeps patting Kashe. It's so cute!!

Growing Up

Koda is getting soooo big! The moment we brought Kashe home from the hospital Koda seemed to age overnight. He walks/runs all over the place, he can climb up on the chairs and then on to the table, he can climb into his high chair (which can be scary because he pulls on the tray and several times is has come off and he has fallen straight back), and he can eat with a spoon by himself. He seriously just did all of these things, all at once.
He loves to wear his shapes ball like a hat. He puts this on himself. It's so funny.

Photo Shoot

Bart and I attempted our own little photo shoot. We hope you enjoy the pictures. I absolutely love photography! I enjoyed taking it in High School and then later at UVU with my friend Amy. I definitely don't know very much, but between Bart and I...we had a lot of fun taking the photos. I just couldn't bring myself to pay $400-$500 for a newborn photo session.

It was funny because the only way we could get Kashe to relax and sleep was to run the vacuum. It must have been a crazy sight seeing our make-shift little studio in the kitchen with the vacuum going at 11pm. :)

Here is precious Kashe...

Mommy & Me

Kashe was such a little angle while we were taking pictures. It was so funny though...there were times he would get fussy and squirmy. So, to sooth him all we had to do was turn on the vacuum. It must have been a funny sight. Bart shooting the photos and me vacuuming. We had a clean kitchen floor by the end of the night. :)

Photo Shoot

We attempted a photo shoot tonight, the boys were so funny. We woke Koda up around 10pm so he would be somewhat calm, it worked for about 10 seconds. We will post more, but enjoy the teaser.

2 Days Old

Peggy thank you so much for the beautiful blanket!!! I'm loving it. :)

Sleeping In

Kashe is such a good little sleeper. He sleeps in everyday and all day. When he opens his little eyes it's such a sweet surprise. I love Kashe in blue!!!
