Our Little Matthew is 8 Months Old

Yesterday Matthew turned 8 months old. : ( My baby is growing up. He has been getting his two bottom teeth this last month which has really turned him into a mommy's boy. He does everything with me including the laundry. He loved sitting on top of the dryer while it was going. Now that he is getting so much more wiggly that will not last. You cant just hold this boy anymore unless your moving. He gets so impatient and wants everything that you have in your hands. He is turning into such a big boy. He still tries to roll everywhere instead of crawl although this morning I noticed he did the worm to get to a comb so crawling is just around the corner. He hates his bed! Anytime I lay him in his crib he screams. Even when he is completely out he just knows I put him down. This week has been the first week in a long time that he has taken a nap longer than fifteen minutes, a miracle! He absolutely loves splashing in the bath tub, I need to get a video of it on here soon. We love this little boy to pieces he is so happy most of the time.

Splash Pad

Last week we decided to get our kids together and go to the splash pad it was so much fun we had a blast. Matthew even enjoyed splashing in the water. Carson was soaked, Abby would go around and sit on random towels and pick up socks that were left on the ground it was funny Charissa was constantly taking things back and chasing her. Addie was not a fan of getting splashed by other kids but she love wading in the water. 

Welcome back Aaron

Grandma Skousen and uncle Aaron came to Utah. Aaron just got back from his mission in May and now is coming up to BYU to go back to school. Grandma drove up to help him move in and come visit us. Right before taking Grandma to the airport we went to the splash pad. Addie had some fun but didn't really like running through the water, she preferred to just touch it with her hand. 


My little man is getting so big already! Look at that adorable smile. Its rare to get a good picture that is not blurry because this kid is always moving. He is getting his bottom teeth too!

Father's Day

Grandma and Grandpa came up for the weekend to bring grandma's moving truck.  During the short time they were here we were able to switch our phone plan,  go to dinner together and celebrate fathers day.

Good Morning

A great morning is when you sleep in until eight and are ready to get up and start your day, kids are still sleeping and you shower before noon.

Most mornings Matthew wakes up at six ends up in our bed I try to go back to sleep but those with babies know you sleep awkwardly and with one eye open when a baby is next to you. By the time you just get back to sleep an almost three year old decides the sun is up and that must mean it is time to wake up mommy and daddy. Addie whines her way into our room claiming she is hungey in all reality she will only take a few bites of good this early in the morning. 

This morning was a lot like the first paragraph a great morning.  We even had crepes for breakfast and played with a wig that gramie brought over. After that everything went down hill gradually. 

Addie went potty and when I went in to help her the pee was bright red. So we decided it was probably just a uti but should still go to the doctors. Two hours later we finally had a urine sample,  doctors visit, and a paper request for lab work and headed to the hospital to get blood work from my little girly three year old.

Addie was a trooper getting her blood drawn. She cried and didn't like but held pretty still for the most part. now we are just waiting on  the results. Addie came home with a bouncy ball, stretchy gecko,  jumping frog, a Ariel sticker, and a sucker the doctors must have really loved her.
