Brendan's 6 months old

  Brendan loves putting his toys in his mouth, cooing and blowing bubbles. He grabs for everything with his hands and feet! And is very determined when he wants something! He loves to have his bum changed (weird I know) and has started liking the bath too. He also loves giving and getting kisses and his blanket and crib.
Brendan has two bottom teeth that have broke through. He is rolling over and already wanting to crawl!  He is starting to have stranger anxiety a little.He has started eating cereal and some baby foods. He loves mashed potatoes, puffs and vegetables but isn't a fan of fruits just yet. He is still nursing and sucking his thumb! He has slept through the night since he was about 2 months old.
 Brendan is such a good baby!!!! He is always content and happy. The only time he cries is when he is hungry, tired or has a yucky bum. He always has a big smile for everyone. I can't even express enough how much we love this little guy, he brings so much happiness to our family!
Here are his stats:
Height ~ 28.25 inches - 95%
Weight ~ 18.5 lbs. - 70%
Head ~ 95% 
He's a big boy!!!

Boston's lost his first tooth!

Saturday night Boston finally started wiggling his VERY loose tooth. And with a little help from Dad it came out. And he was one very excited boy!!!

Snuggle time

Brendan and Daddy sleeping...how cute!

Brendan's rolling over!

 Brendan is rolling all over the place!
 From back to his tummy
(he started doing this about a month ago)
 He is pretty proud of himself!

And now he can roll from tummy to his back!! Yeah what a big boy!

4th of July

 This year for the Fourth and for Kel's birthday we went to East Canyon Dam. We fished and boated it was fun! Logan got to go fishing on Grandpa Kel's pontoon boat. Logan, Brylee, Boston and Carter got to knee board on the boat! Brylee did really well and even got up on her knees!!!

And again another exhausting trip!!! Yeah for Summer!

Headed home...

I think it's safe to say that our trip to Montana to see Grandpa and Grandma wore the kids out (even the cat)! We were sad to have to leave it was a fun week. It is always such a treat for us to be there. They make us feel so welcome and loved at their house. It is so peaceful and the kids can just be kids! It's one of my most favorite things to do in the Summer. I can't wait to go back!!!

Fishing in Wisdom, MT

Fishing in Wisdom was my favorite thing we did. It was so nice there. I could have stayed there for a month...minus the mosquito's of course!
 Coming back from our battlefield walk

 Don't mind the toy story underwear peeking out!
 Boston and Daddy's big fish
 I could spend every day in a creek like this one!!

 Everyone was being super silly in this picture!
When we got home Ben fillet all the fish and I battered and fried them. And we had fish and chips for dinner...it was delicious!

Smores anyone?

 Love me some smores!
 My Dad had his very first smore!!! I couldn't believe it, how do you go 63 years without trying one of the best outdoor treats ever?

Crystal Park

 Crystal Park is one of our most favorite places to go!!!

 This was Logan's first time there, and he loved it as much as the rest of us!

Fishing at the pond

 This little pond is the most beautiful and peaceful little place.
 We caught quite a few but most were pretty little.
 Grandpa and Boston

We had a great time!!!

We LOVE Montana

 We love our trips to Montana to see my Dad. Here are the kids in Grandpa's hunting hideout.
 Brendan's first time meeting Grandpa
 Belle was pretty fond of my Dad too!
We did a lot of playing and these kids were wore out!

Meet Belle

Meet our sweet little kitty Belle!
We already love her so much, she is such a good cat. We got her from my Mom and she is only outside because of Ben's allergies. She has the cutest little personality. Brylee is thrilled because she had been begging for her for months!!!
