One Month! (week 4)



Luke is one month old! I honestly can't believe it. Time flies.

Luke stretches out his feedings to almost 3 hours!

A weekend trip to Pocatello to be with family and introduce them to Luke. It was full of fun, laughter, good food, and relaxation. It was a great break.

Father's Day celebrations. (we got Ben a grill, and can't wait to use it)
I am so grateful for my dad, whose teachings, example and love, have helped make me who I am.
 
 I am also grateful for an amazing husband who is an excellent father, and chooses to be very involved with our children...


 

even if it means wearing dorky lazer tag helmets to please his sons.:)
 

Luke is starting to try to smile...any day now. We can't wait.

Mary had a great time talking with aunt Kelsey and Uncle Tyler as she learned to weed the garden.

I drove to Pocatello by myself with all four kids. We made it in once piece, after three stops.

I got the ok to start working out again, lightly. I mowed the lawn for my first work-out, and loved it!

My brother and sister-in-law had their first baby. Elias Wright Belnap. He is adorable and looks exactly like my brother.

Luke had a bath in the "grandma spa," complete with a towel lined sink, lavender bath lotion, a massage, and a view out the window.


The "good neighbors" from Colorado Springs, Mike and Mel, had their baby boy.  We are so happy for them and miss them so much.

Moved the guinea pig cage outside, and made a great big home for them. No more smell inside, and happy pigs outside. Hooray!


Luke loves to be snuggled and swaddled, but when he is awake, he prefers to stretch out on his back.

Mary and Sam continue Super Sports Camp, and have a great time.

We are loving summer and all it has to offer.

Life continues on, and is ever changing with a new baby and new schedules. Some moments are crazy, some are calm, some are stressful, some are peaceful, some are full of love and laughter, some are full of counting to ten and taking a deep breath.  Come what may, we are a family, and there is nothing else I would rather have.
