life's going good

OK, I guess I'll start up with this blog thing again! Here's a little update:

Joah is growing way too fast for me! He'll be 4 months in a week, and I get a little teary-eyed when I look at pictures of his early days. What a sweet little gift he is!

1 month

3 months

We took two trips to Colorado so Joah could meet the fam. They all loved him (of course).

When Uncle Steve rushed out of the house to meet the little guy after our long road trip, I handed him over and Joah had a leak. Steve looked shocked, "What is that?" We were trying out a new diaper brand, which we don't use anymore...poor Steve :)

Joah also met his only first cousin, Ammon. What a cute pair. Definitely love at first sight. Can you believe they're less than 7 months apart? Babies grow too fast.

We moved! When my little monkey was exactly 2 months old, we packed everything up and moved 7 blocks, with the help of my crazy awesome parents. We're now living in a basement apartment in a less fun neighborhood and paying half the rent for a larger space. Woohoo! It still looks like we just moved in...maybe I'll be brave and share some pictures sometime.

I went back to work a week later, and James is at home with Joah until he starts school at the end of August. My mother-in-law, Carmen stayed with us for a week to help with the baby while we got settled, which was amazing.

These days we just try to keep on some sort of schedule, hang out, and watch our little cutie grow. We went to the aquarium in Sandy last weekend, and Joah had fun looking at the fish and penguins. I tried to take more pictures, but the light was so bad. I'm pretty sure the building used to be a grocery store.

and a nap afterward. That's a penguin on his onesie.

Work is good. I have a lot of projects to update my portfolio. I'll get around to it when it's important I guess. Right now that's kind of taking a back seat to watching my baby chomp on his hands and blow spit bubbles. He's so cute :)

AND, that's it I think. I'll try to post more often in the future!
