7 Months

Fischer is 7 months going on 7 years. Okay so not quite like that, but that little boy is sure determined to do things his own way. He thinks he needs to feed himself with his own spoon (which makes for a VERY messy dinner time), hold his own bottle (which would be great if he would hold it up so he can actually get milk out of it), and sit on his own. If he could figure out how to walk he would be. Fischer is a kid that likes to be on the go. He is CONSTANTLY moving, checking things out wanting to be part of everything. If you're eating dinner and he's not at the table with you, be prepared for a fit. He loves to be involved and I love that he wants to be. I enjoy watching his progress has he figures new things out everyday. I never imagined i could love such a little man as much as I love Fischer. He brings so much joy to my life and my heart. One little grin and I'm hooked all over again. I love that kid, more so then I thought was ever humanly possible. Here are some fun facts from this past month.

*He can sit on his own without assistance
*If he's lying down he tries with all his might to try and sit up. So he constantly looks like he's doing little stomach crunches.
*the bald spot on the back of his head from him scooting around is starting to have hair grow back.
*He's in size 2-3 shoes
*He likes to dance or shake his body when a good song plays. It's quite funny.
*He's extreamly ticklish on his back near the armpit area.
*Balloons are the COOLEST. Let him play with a balloon and you are in for a sure giggle fit.
*He's started to give real "loves" or "hugs" which Momma just adores and can't get enough of.

6 Years and Still in Love

Today Karl and I celebrated our 6 year Anniversary. These past 6 years have been GREAT! Karl is such an amazing guy with a HUGE heart. He's funny, sensitive, sweet, and a complete manly man. I just love him. He can get Fischer to smile faster then anyone. That little boy just idolizes his dad. He always has to watch what he is doing. I can't imagine my life without Karl. He brings out the better part of me. He is strong where I am weak and brave when I am scared. For our anniversary we will be going to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We will be fishing, rafting, hiking and just relaxing and enjoying all the beautiful things nature and God have provided. I'm so greatful for Karl and the love he gives me everyday. I couldn't be more happy. Happy Anniversary Sweetheart!

Tiny Ties

I am in LOVE with the little man ties for my little guy. I ordered one awhile ago and after looking at it I figured it couldn't be too hard to recreate. So, I borrowed a patterned from a friend, tweaked it a bit and made my own ties for Fischer. I was pretty proud of myself. I have a couple more I am doing, but for now here are the ones I did today.

I had the great opportunity to be apart of my niece Alyson's baptism. She currently lives in Texas and was able to come to Utah to be baptized. It was such a sweet opportunity to be able to share with her in her exciting day. A friend of my sister's was going to take some pictures of her but got called out on an emergency and had to leave. So I got the opportunity to play with my new camera and get some fun pictures of her.


I got the opportunity to take some cute pictures of my darling neice. It was a lot of fun.

Summer Fun!

It has been a fun and busy summer for us. Fischer got to meet a lot of family for the first time. Karl's Brother Kelly arrived home from his mission. My sister also has been in town from Texas. We got to celebrate Hunter, Maddie's, and Ryan's Birthday all together and we did a picnic with the Christensen's at Bridalvail. It's been fun spending time with family and friends. I've enjoyed having my sister here and watching all the cousin's play.
