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!

Poor Guy

Athen had a rough first week of life. Along with all the trauma of his birth he got jaundice preety bad. He had to spend all his time besides feeding in a bilirubin light lamp to help lower his jaundice. He hated it and I hated it so we cheated a little but after a few days it started going down and we got rid of the bed.

My Little Boy

So I am still new at updating my blog so sorry some of the pictures are upside down but here are few pictures of my little boy. Finally on April 18th I gave birth to my first child Athen Russell Piggott. He is my little buddy and I love being a mom. He already has a little personality and is called stubborn by ever doctor that sees him. He doesn't like to sleep but he loves to cuddle. We just love having him in our family!
