Bodie is 4 months old!

Yes, I'm about 2 weeks late in posting Bodie's 4 month photo!! This move is driving me crazy...ha ha. Anyway, our little bug continues to be the light of our lives right now. He is changing so much and learning something new each day! At his 4 month well baby check, he weighed 10 lbs 14 oz. and was 23 1/2 inches long...still in the 0% percentile, but he's continuing to grow on his own curve. He loves his little family and often shows us his sweet smile. We have lots of little toys for him to play with, but he prefers his little fingers! I totally think his two bottom teeth are coming in, but Joel doesn't believe me...but, whew, he slobbers up a storm and chows down on anything that comes near his mouth! He's a very sweet, laid back baby. After his shots he was fussy and it was so odd hearing him cry as much as he did, we aren't used to it!
We are having a blast with this sweet boy, everything he does just brings us so much joy! Kyle was able to get some pictures of him smiling....isn't he the cutest thing ever?? Enjoy!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this picture! You can see his little dimple....ah, so sweet!

Saige was tickling him and making funny faces to get him to smile for the camera!


This photo cracks me up....I think he's smelling his own diaper!


Daddy and Bodie....look how bald my baby is, but he is getting new growth and so far it looks straight...boo hoo! I wanted him to get that daddy hair!

Dapper Bodie.....

Look at our sweet boy! We both died over this hat when we saw it at the store....he's finally big enough (kind of, hee hee) to wear it! The rest of the cutie outfit is from his amazing Auntie Kelly! And of course his Sanuks! I'm having fun dressing him up, boys clothes have definitely gotten a lot better!

His shoes are really too big still!

Hmmmm, I'm getting over this Mom and Dad!


I love this little picture....I love his tiny hands...Oh how I love this kid!


Yup, I'm a cutie!!!




I had to throw this one in too! He is a drool monster!! But what a face!!

Bodie and a whole lotta bread!!

A few pics of Bodie for your viewing pleasure!! All the hair that he is losing on his head is traveling to his eyelashes....ha ha! He is so stinking cute!
Still wearing his newborn outfit!! But, he's finally growing into some of his 3 month clothes!

He sure is cute in his Bumbo seat.

And now for the whole lotta bread in my new massive bread bowl!! This might be my new bargain of a lifetime item!! My friend and I went to an antique warehouse in Belgium and hit pay dirt!! I knew if I didn't get this bread bowl, I would be kicking myself for years to come....so, it came home! And it was dirt cheap....I think the owner was a little surprised that someone was buying it....(they don't know what they have, especially when Pottery Barn carries "found bread bowls from Europe" for over a 100.00 dollars and they are a fraction of this size! Now, am I going to use this for bread...ummmm no, but what a cool conversation piece!!



Saige standing next to it to give you an idea of how huge it is!!


Sooooo cool!

Bodie Bug.....

Most of these pics were taken by Kyle while Saige was holding him....I thought they turned out great! He has a good eye! Bodie has become a slobbering maniac! We keep thinking we see a tooth, but surely we are seeing things....he's WAY too little to have a tooth already..ha...and as a nursing Mama...the prospect of a tooth doesn't sound too appealing right now!

Looks like his Daddy in this pic.

He's getting some chubby cheeks....we LOVE it!

Blow this pic up...and look at those eye lashes.




Saige's favorite picture....Joel must have been messing with his hair again!


I love his little expression in this picture.



Double chin!


And sadly look what we found on his little pillow....yep, that's right...his hair is falling out like there is no tomorrow....we are so sad. But, hopefully his new hair will come in curly...just like his Daddy-O!

Bodie is 3 months old........

Our sweet boy is 3 months old today. I wish I could make time go in slow motion...I want to savor every moment with this beautiful gift from Heavenly Father. He just totally makes my heart melt. He's finally getting a little chub on him and we just love it! However, his little 0 to 3 month outfit that he has on for these photos still swamps him! It's so funny to see how big everything is on him. What a bundle of joy he is in our home. We can be having the worst day and all it takes to make us happy is holding him and seeing his little expressions. He's smiling up a storm these days and is starting to grab for things. He likes his bouncer seat and can really get it going now. On Monday, he weighed just over 9 pounds and was almost 22 inches long, putting him in the 2nd percentile...whoo hoo! I totally want him to be healthy and grow, but I secretly love that he is still so small! I can just smooch and snuggle with him all day!



Here is our little man in his grown up outfit! ha ha
He wasn't too happy for these pics....I think it was time to eat yet AGAIN! These two hour feedings are really getting old!

Yep. just a hint of a smile....almost!



Blurry pic, but a little smile.....I know he gets so sick of me smooching on those tiny lips!!

His eyelashes have taken on a life of their own...it seems like every single day they are getting longer and longer....it's amazing and I LOVE it. I always wanted long eye lashes, so he didn't get them from me....but, we tried to get some shots to show how long they are.



Life doesn't get any better!

The other children.....

Yes, get your mouth off the floor, this post doesn't have one picture of Bodie!! We do have other children, they just don't usually do anything that is blog worthy...ha ha! However, I thought these little pics from one of their antics was worth posting!! EVERYDAY Saige asks me if she can have one of my caffeine-free Diet Cokes, and EVERYDAY, I tell her NO. She decided to enlist Kyle to her cause and protest the fact that we don't get them any "good" drinks. This is what they came up with....pretty creative if you ask me!!


For some reason, they thought dressing up in weird clothing would help their cause and make is seem like more of a "real" strike! (old glasses from her Velma halloween costume)
Kyle wearing the Harry Potter glasses....you can't see the rest of him, but he was dressed up too!


Kyle's slogan....very funny!
Another one of his ideas! Maybe he should go into advertising...he's good at slogans!



They used yard sticks, paint brushes and pencils to hold up their signs.



I've enjoyed giving them milk even more now after seeing this sign.



They thought including Bodie would help their cause. (oops, I lied, there is little Bodie in this post....hee hee)



While this little protest didn't help their cause any, they sure are cute and funny!!!

New Bumbo seat......

Bodie's little bumbo seat came in yesterday and it is so funny to see him sitting in it! He is such a slice of heaven.....I just can't stand how much I want to smooch and love on him all day! I actually put him in his swing today to do some housework and I lasted about 20 minutes...ha ha.
Here is our big boy in his new big boy seat!

Hmmmm, not sure if I like this Mom.....


But, boy do I look cute!

Here is a little video....he's griping a little bit, but we love to hear his little noises!

Bodie-licious.....

Just some random shots of little Bodie this week...he's totally changing everyday and doing something new....he laughed out loud today, now mind you he was in a semi-sleep state when he did it, but I just imagine he was dreaming about living with Heavenly Father just a few short months ago! He's smiling up a storm now and starting to talk to us...we love it so much, we don't seem to be able to take our eyes off of him for very long!

These shots were taken just hanging out in his crib.....
He was interested in something off to the side apparently!

Love his little face


This is usually how we find him sleeping.....


He looks a little drugged up in this pic! Joel loves pulling his hair down like this and calling him Ceasar....dork!



A goofy self portrait of Bodie and I after my brother scolded me for never being in pictures with him...ha ha. Here you go Quin.



And I found this little gem when I was downloading these pictures....it's Jade squeezing my baby's face...I'm so going to kick her butt when I see her next! She was lucky I didn't see her doing this...little turd bucket.

Anyway, that is our latest little bug pictures.....we sure like this kid a lot!

2 month pics.....

Wow, our sweet boy in already 2 months! I probably sound like a broken record, but holy cow we love this little guy! He makes us all so happy, we can be reduced to tears just seeing him smile at us! He continues to be a very "zen" like baby and is so laid back and easy going. I am so blessed to be able to stay home and be with him, I can't imagine going to work and leaving him with someone else....I don't want to miss a thing! He got his little thumb the other day and Saige and I thought it was the cutest thing we had ever seen! I so wish I had better photography skills, but here he is.....the sweetest baby boy ever!

He loves his hands...he even sleeps with his hands near his face.

Hey Mama....aren't I cute?

Oh yeah, got that hand and boy is it yummy!




Even his toes look like Joel's.....seriously, he IS his mini-me!


His hair seems to be getting more curly every day....whoo hoo!



Bodie's stats....at his 2 month checkup he weighed 7 pounds 8oz. He was 21 inches long. He's a wee little thing, only in the third percentile for weight and length...but, he's growing and changing every day! He's starting to smile when you smile at him. He loves to be cuddled up close and sleeps the best when he's on our chest! He's a pretty good sleeper at night, usually only getting up once. And his little face melts our hearts!
