Pictures and more pictures

So Dallin is changing like crazy, as you can see in the above pictures. This entry is full of pictures of Dallin as he changes, and it shows a little bit about how much his face has changed with expressions and what not. It has been so fun to have him! We just love him so much. As you can see in the above pictures, Joe is pretty happy to be a dad and loves to hold and play with Dallin.

And Dalling loves his Dad. Look at the way he looks at Joe. It is so adorable I can hardly stand it!!!
Here is another one. Joe had just come home from work and Dallin was all smiles for him. What fun!

Here is a picture of Dallin standing on his own for the first time. His legs are totally still bowed, and probably will be for a long time, but this was his 6 week mark. What progress he is making already. He is holding his head up all on his own now and incredibly he is standing now. Way to go Dallin. You grow so fast!

This is one of my favorites. I love his eyes. The seem to just jump right off the picture at you. I think he has the most beautiful eyes I have ever seen on a baby....but I might be just a little biased...wink wink.

These two are of him just hanging out with mom at home. I thought his outfit was especially cute this day, so I thought I would take a couple of shots. I love his face in the first one...he is such a sly little guy.

A picture of Joe and Dallin with the biggest guns imaginable. We went for a walk on Sunday and stopped at a near by park that has this as a monument. I think they are from the second world war, but I am not too certain.

Dallin and I just hanging out. I love him so much sometimes it hurts! This night in particular I kept kissing his little cheeks which are getting so chubby and soft now. I think kissing babies cheeks is one of my favorite past times now:)

In his stroller just before our walk on Sunday. He loves his stroller. I wish I could say the same for his car seat. He hate, hate, hates it.

Giving mommy a huge smile....see how much he loves his stroller?

Or maybe the smile is for me? I think he might just love me too:)

Bath time for baby. He is so adorable in his little towel his aunt sent him. We can only savor these little moments for a millisecond because he will usually pee all over us, if we try to shoot for a long moment. He has peed on me over 10 times already....hahaha. We are so glad to have him in our family!
He is getting blessed this Sunday and I am so excited. My mom made him a little white tuxedo with a green bow tie to get blessed in. I will have to post pictures when she brings it over. I am so psyched to him in it!
Spring is here and I am loving it. It has been sunny for two days in a row and I just love it. I just spent the morning mowing the lawn and planting some flowers in our front yard. The flowers didn't make it more than a few weeks last year, so I am hoping that my green thumb has improved over that last year. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. I love the Spring! I decided Joe and I will live somewhere warm most indefinitely. I hate the cold.

Dallin and Weight loss

Dallin is getting so big. This picture is of him at his 4 week mark. He is going to be 6 weeks tomorrow, so I will have to post another picture of him then too! He is just so cute.
Dallin is a pretty calm baby and we love him so much! He doesn't give us much trouble, and he is just learning how to smile. I love to get him up in the morning because he is starting to greet me with a super cute smile. He is starting to stand on his legs now and they are sure strong!! He loves to suck on his pacifier now, which makes falling asleep even easier for him. He is a joy and such a blessing to have. We are so grateful to have him in our family.
I am still trying to loose my baby weight! I am taking up yoga in hopes to boost my flexibilty and to help tone up some much need flab:) I have been using my elipitical for 30 minutes every day since Dallin was 2 weeks old. I haven't seen much improvement yet on the scale, but I do see some changes in my appearance. I have never been over weight before and exercise was always easy. I don't enjoy it, but I do love the challenge that it gives me to loose this weight and to feel good while I do it. I was....I can't believe I am telling everyone this....but I was 194 lbs. when I came home from the hospital and now I am 167 lbs. I just have 30 more to loose til I am at my pre-pregnancy weight....lets start the count down...
On other news, the business is going great. Joe is at the office daily making sure it runs and grows so that I can stay home with Dallin. What a blessing! I have always thought it was so important to be home with your children, and now I get to! I love it. We are so blessed!
