My Princess

I just had to quickly post a few pictures of my little Oakley. She is getting so big already and turning into my little buddy. She is such a sweet baby and hardly ever cries. Athen is loving being a big brother and never ceases to give sis LOTS of kisses. I am blessed to have such wonderful children!

My New Years Resolution

So this year one of my New Year's resolutions is to be a better blogger. We had such a busy, but great year in 2011 and I know that 2012 is going to be just as busy. In 2011....
Ryan and I celebrated our 2nd Anniversary
We took our first trip to Hawaii
Athen turned 1!
Ryan Graduated college! Hooray! We are so proud of him!
We bought our first family car
And the most exciting part of all... We welcomed our little girl, Oakley Elisabeth Piggott. Athen is such a good big brother and loves his little sis. We are so blessed and have some much to be grateful for! Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the past year.

It has been a while...

So I haven't been good at updating my posts. We have had a busy couple of months with both of us working full time, going to school full time, and raising our fun little boy! I love being a mom and enjoy every second I get to spend with him. He is getting so big. He is crawling all over and trying to figure out how to walk. He can say: Mama, Dada and ball! His favorite thing is to play with other kids and loves seeing babies. We got a new mirror to put up in our living room and while it was on the ground waiting for Ryan to put it up, Athen sat and played with himself. It was so cute to watch! He loves reading books! He will just sit by himself and turn the pages and laugh at the pictures on each page.
He is finally getting a few hairs on his head, at least enough I can do something with it. Ryan doesn't like the little mohawk, but I think it fits him!

Back in February we had a few nice days that were around 60 degrees, but I woke up this morning to another 3 inches of fresh snow. We got out Athen's snow hat to take him outside for a second, he hated it if you can't tell from the picture!

Beach Day!

Last weekend was a Pioneer Day. A state Holiday for Utah. We went up and spent the weekend at Bear Lake with all of Ryan's family. It was nice and relaxing and it was Athen's first time at the beach. He liked the water but he got mad we would only let him put his feet in. He kept looking down at the water like put me in guys! He is getting so big and starting to interact with us some much. He loves just talking and playing with his toys. A new thing he has started doing is sucking his fingers. He has decided he preferrs those over his binky and rarely takes his binky anymore. This is the typical Athen pose. Hanging out with his fingers in his mouth. These are just a few fun pictures of him. He is such a joy to our lives!

Summer Time!

Time is flying by! I can't believe that the 4th of July is already over and Athen is almost 3 months old. We got to go and visit my parents in North Idaho and spend time with my brother and sister and parents. It was so nice to be able to hang out with them and for Athen to met all of his cousins. Athen is getting so good at sitting up so we thought we would get him a bumbo chair and see if he was big enough for it. He is still a little small but he liked sitting in it. He was so happy until Ryan started taking him out. Athen loves soft things and his favorite toy is a blanket. He will sit and play with blankets for hours. It makes me worried because I don't want him to suffocate but he sure has fun.
Here is another picture os him in his bumbo chair. He started getting a rash under his chin where his rolls are so I have been putting baby powder there to help with the wetness. That is why there is white stuff all over him.

While we were at my parents my sister's little boy Atlas was so cute with Athen. He would come and read and sing to him and Athen would smile for him everytime. This is such a cute picture of the two while we tried to get a grandkids photo for my parents. It is just so funny!

One of the days we went to Silverwood with everyone. They have a great waterpark that the kids loved. Here is just a cute picture of Ryan and Athen. I love my boys!

My Boys!

So I am a little behind with posting pictures of Athen. He is now 9 weeks old and smiling like crazy. He has turned out to be such a good baby. As long as his tummy is full he is happy just hanging out. Here is just a cute picture as we were changing his clothes the other day. He is just so fun. He loves his toys. He holds them and puts them in his mouth and coos away.

Here is a cute picture of him smiling. He was just hanging out on our bed while we got ready for church. Our bed is his favorite place to hang out. He will sleep all night long now as long as we let him sleep with us. Ryan jokes when need to buy him a pillow top mattress to sleep on.
Big Smile!

We try and read him books everyday and he just sits and stares at the pictures the whole time. I love this picture of my boys. Ryan is such an amazing dad. I truly couldn't ask for a better helper and friend. Athen loves his daddy too. Whenever he hears Ryan's voice he starts smiling. I love these two!

1 Month Old!

Athen is 1 month old! His birthday is actually tomorrow but I know that tomorrow is going to be busy so I am doing it today. He is getting so big and changing everyday. This weekend he was also able to go on his first roadtrip to St. George. He was such a trooper and was so good. He cried maybe 10 mintues the whole time in the car. He can go on roadtrips with us anytime! Ryan and Athen right before the race. Ryan is such a good dad and helper.Athen was pretty comfy in the warm weather. He loved the sun! Our first little family picture. I love my boys!
