Today is a Good Day...

...because James slept from 11:20pm last night to 8am this morning... completely uninterrupted!! And at 2months old!!! He's been sleeping until about 7-7:30, but will wake up at six, and I go into his room and put in his pacifier, and he'll sleep a bit longer, but not today. I attribute it to the book On Becoming Babywise. Our friend Kristi Harris suggested it, and it totally works! I cannot believe that he is sleeping so well, and I am LOVING it! Also thanks to Aubreigh's mom, Heidi, who suggested some things that have helped too. Our key is to give him a little bath each night before his last feeding, and then when we put him down, he stays down and can soothe himself to sleep.

Sunday's are fun, and now with 8:30am church instead of 2:30pm, we have so much more time! I love the cute outfits we have for church, and they are mix and match, so it makes even more outfits :) After church we packed some sandwiches and took a drive to see the fall foliage.

Looking cute for church

James and his leaf, he held that for a long time

James is also so much more interactive lately. He is smiley and oh so fun and cute. He smiles every morning when he wakes up, and when his Daddy says goodbye for work, and when we just love him :)

Kirstin turns 21!!

My little sister Kirstin turned 21 on Monday the 21st! James and I were lucky to spend the day with her. We went to Costco, opened presents and cards, and had a yummy dinner that night while all along having good talks. We love you and thanks for the makeup tips :)

Kirstin is 21!

Two Month Stats

James is now TWO months old! Where has the time gone? He does just get cuter and cuter by the day. We had his check up where he got his first shots, and he did surprisingly well! Not like his mommy who was terrified of shots, though I'm not anymore. He cried at first, but not more than two minutes, then he was done.

Here are his stats:
~Weight: 9lbs 11oz, 10th percentile, up from 5% at birth!
~Length: 22inches, 17th percentile, up from 5% at birth!
~Head is in the 7th percentile, also up!

He is just adorable, and is cooing more and more! We love our sweet little one.

Is this not the cutest outfit?

Matt and Aubreigh took us fly fishing, thanks guys, we had a lot of fun!!

Cute Pictures

We'll we've been busy, so I'll update soon on our adventures, but I thought that I would document the babe's cuteness with pictures from his 7th and 8th weeks of life. He is changing so quickly, and becoming more alert everyday! Enjoy the pics!

Tom and baby James'. We got Yozone (yum yum) then sat outside and visited for a little bit.

An attempt to catch that cute gummy smile on camera, I'll keep trying...

The Blessing Weekend!!

This last Sunday we had James' blessing, and the amount of love and support that was shown was overwhelming to say the least. It was a whole weekend of family! Saturday we watched the BYU vs. Oaklahoma game, and WOW, BYU delivered!! That was so awesome to see. A big surprise this weekend was on Saturday morning when Grandpa and Grandma Haworth called us and said they were coming that day for the blessing the next day, and they'd be there in time to watch the game. Since James Robert's middle name is after Grandpa, it was wonderful that they could come, and I know how hard it was for Grandma to travel. Thank you again! We had a surprise birthday party for Robert (Nathan's oldest brother) when they got there that evening.

Kaylee loves her new cousin, "baby James", and she told everyone there, it was so cute

Sunday was the blessing, and look at all the family that came! Nathan did such a good job, and the Spirit was so strong. Just when everyone was standing up I started to get teary. THANK YOU so much to everyone who came, it meant the world to us! Afterwards we had a picnic up South Fork Canyon at South Park. It was very yummy, and such fun to be able to be outdoors. It was the perfect ending to the perfect day.

Absolutely Adorable

James is six weeks old this week! Wow does time fly. He also decided to roll from his tummy to his back (I was thinking in medical terms though of prone to supine, haha), and it wasn't a fluke because he's done it on multiple occasions! He also changes every day. I put him to bed and wonder how he'll have grown by the next day. He weighs 8lbs and some, and boy is he getting long! Some clothes are even getting tight, I didn't think it would be that quick! On Monday Kirstin and went to pick ouy his blessing outfit. We learned two things: 1) it does pay off to always carry a diaper and wipes with ( we had to change him in the dressing room before I would try on the different sizes, especially all white outfits!) and 2) when you have a really cute and little baby lots of people will go out of their way to help you. On Thursday we went out to eat with Kirstie and Tom, and Tom's younger brother Coleman and Kristie's younger brother Houston and my younger sister Kirstin to Gloria's Little Italy. It has become one of our new favorites! Well, here are some adorable pictures from this week, enjoy!

How do we dress for Sunday, in our Sunday best of course :)
