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!
