Memorial Day Weekend

This past weekend I got to spend a lot of time with the fam and was even able to squeeze in a little time with the girls! It was great. We washed my jeep, went to Sugarhouse Park, took naps, visited Aunt Deon and just hung out! I didn't get too many pics because my memory card was full but here are a few from the phone!

I just love waking up to this little face every morning. It makes my day. Him and his blanky!
Rollin moms new JEEP! "There goes the insurance!"

Let the fun begin!

Last night after I got off work Jen and I took Damian out to visit Damians favorite person, Aunt Deon. It was such a beautiful day we decided to hang out on the back patio. Damian and I played with the T ball set he got for his birthday and then decided to watch the sprinkler. Damian was fascinated. He played for almost 45 min in the water! Here are a few pics!

Aries and Scorpio

I found this on MSN today and thought it was right on the money. Especially for Damian!


Aries children have energy in abundance, are usually strong, active, and enthusiastic. You better be physically in great shape to keep up with the little Ram. They seem to never get tired and after a day full of physical activity, the Aries child keeps going while you might gasp for air. Being curious and adventurous, little Arians want to know everything, explore, and investigate. Without fear they venture into new territory all the time, be it a high tree, a playground, or a year abroad. They love challenges, so offering them opportunities to compete either in sports or at play or in school keeps them from being bored too quickly. Aries children need a lot of watching, especially when they are very young, as they can also be quite stubborn and won't accept a "No" easily. Resisting control, they need to know who is in charge, as they are very determined to do everything their very own way. Although young Arians can be quite sweet and affectionate one minute, they can be challenging and angry the next. They need a lot of reassurance, attention, and need to know they are loved. Being ruled by Mars, it is no wonder that they can display a hot temper but they can forget it as quickly as it came. As natural born leaders, Aries children will take the lead in their group, be it at school, or college, or in their circle of friends. However, it can be difficult for them to lose and as difficult to learn how to share and that they cannot win every game. Young Arians are a delight to be around, and they will certainly never bore you! Your favorite moments will be when you can jump into their fantasyland with them and get swept away by their courageous lead into the unknown. They have an untamed spirit that is always ready for adventure!


The Scorpio child is full of mystery and beauty. This child will demonstrate remarkable sensitivity to others, beginning with infancy. You will be amazed by the attachment you feel to this child! More than any other sign, Scorpio is capable of feeling and expressing need, the proverbial still water that runs deep. The passionate nature of Scorpio is known the world over and this sign is well adapted to expressing intense emotion. Artists and writers are very often Scorpios, as are actors and musicians. The inner depth of this sign is unfathomable, and if you help Scorpio children sort through their powerful emotions you will find yourself in the presence of striking and compelling personalities who give much more than they receive. The younger years are calm given Scorpio's reputation. In fact, Scorpio loves to be a child. This is because there is so much to absorb and learn about the world, and so much love to soak in from parents and family. Scorpio's need for love cannot be overestimated, and you would be wise to show your love through taking the young Scorpio to museums, plays, bookstores, parks, and anything else that will capture their interest. To give a Scorpio something to explore is to give them a lifetime of satisfaction. Other children may not be as passionate as yours, and therefore your Scorpio child may relate more easily to adults who have already found their passion in life. These relationships may be of great value to them long-term, although strict boundaries must be observed so that they can retreat to their own peer group whenever they feel like "just being a kid" with no explanation necessary!

Damian is becoming more and more independent. Last night he wanted to feed himself. This is what came out of it! Thank goodness for bleach!

This past weekend I took Damian to Ogden to visit Matt. We had a lot of fun blowing bubbles, taking a walk and just watching Damian discover new things!

When toddlers get quiet!

You should ALWAYS worry if your toddler gets quiet. Damian disappeared and was quiet as a mouse this past week and when I went looking for him this is what I found!

After he pulled it all off the role he drug it into the living room!

This is what I got when I finally cleaned up the toilet paper!

Damians first boo boo

Here are the pictures of Damian having the WRONG arm wrapped after diving off my bed a few weeks ago. I still can not believe the nurses did that. It is a good thing I noticed it.

1 year and counting....

Well Damian is now 1 year old. His first birthday party was April 11th. I know I am late but he is keeping me SO busy now that his walking! He LOVES Elmo so of course his party was Elmo themed! He loved it. A month later we still have 2 balloons floating around that he LOVES. One actually sings happy birthday from Elmo. I can not wait for that balloon to deflate :-) You can see in the pictures that Damian was less than thrilled with the birthday cake. I put his hands in it and he just about had a breakdown!

In light of his birthday I had to post some old pictures. Below was Damians first haircut. I think he was 4 months old. It was much needed.

This was at his his 4 month check up. He was happy as a clam until they gave him his shots. I must admit though, even at his worst he is not that bad. He is just so happy and content!

As soon as it was warm enough we started going to the pool. Damian is my little fish!

My little UTES fan!

My sleeping little Angel. All I did for the first few months was sit and stare at him. He was amazing even sleeping!

The first time I got to hold him!

28 hrs of labor was worth it!

A week before he was born. Oh how life has changed!
