what we have been up to...

 After a four month hiatus, I've decided to start blogging again...Here is a little- or not so little- catch up post to show you what we've been up to.

**In December along with celebrating christmas we went on a christmas cruise with the Hoyts. Jake, Calv & I left early and played around in the florida keys before we met up with the fam and enjoyed an awesome week in Aruba, the Bahamas, and Curacao!
**In January our mister turned 10 months and mastered the art of walking! I can barely keep up with him now. We also played in the snow and spent the majority of the month being sick.

(and we tried out some new yoga poses too..)

**In February Calvin decided to play cupid for V-day and that same day we decided we were sick of the cold and headed to Vegas. We enjoyed the sun and shopping for the first couple days, and the last couple days we drove over by Lake Mead to lake las vegas and relaxed at the resort and went on lots of walks and hikes.

 Halloween in our neck of the woods was a success. We had an eventful day visiting dad at the bank, hitting up the grandmas, the "park-or-treat" with cousins, AND the ward trunk-or-treat-sheesh! We even got one group of trick-or-treaters at our house (better than last year!!)
The little guy had 2 costumes. A dinosaur- he is getting really good at making velociraptor noises these days...

and a little "french man" with baguette and all.

6 months!

I can't believe this kid is almost 7 months old! Here are some of his 6 month pictures that were taken the other week. Calvin has grown up so much in the last month. Within the last few weeks he mastered sitting up, crawling, and now he is starting to pull himself up on different things-crazy child. He is so much fun and such a sweet little guy. We love you buddy, you are our world!

the last month or so...

The last month or so has been great! We tried to soak in the last days of summer by spending as much time as possible outside. We went on lots of stroller rides, played on swings, and went on a gazillion hikes.

One of us tried food for the first time....

and after a few bites decided that it wasn't so bad!

Also in the last month (more specifically the last couple days) our baby started crawling, yeah-crawling. We don't know what to do with ourselves. We have frantically been baby proofing our house. We are quickly learning that teaching him to crawl maybe wasn't the best idea.;)

aaannd...last and LEAST...football season has also started this last month and there is definitely some brainwashing going on in our house...
