Pictures & Visits

Back in October Stacy and Grace came to visit. It was a fun filled week of laughing and trips to goodwill!

This collage is just Westin running around on the couch. He does it often and throws ALL the pillows on the ground. Who taught him that?

We got some cute pictures of this girl just before she turned 5!

Westin walked around in his diaper like usual after naps.

Grace climbed a tree, we played outside a lot. Its just what we do in California!

Grace brought some fun chalk for Westin to eat!

Westin thought it was always play time, even when he should have been napping!

The girl on the left, she was the ring leader of all the shenanigans!

We did make trips to Goodwill, you'll have to see the pictures to believe it but we walked out with some pretty awesome finds! After we ran into the mean old lady!

This Guy Had A Birthday

Westin's BFF turned ONE back in September! Westin and Isaiah are almost the exact amount of days apart as Rebecca and I are.

This guy wasn't too excited about the party, he thought he didn't get any of the treats since they all had Milk in them. Such a bummer.

These guys didn't mind the extras.

Then Westin found what he wanted.

Later we had cake and ice cream, I think. He loved it!

Happy Birthday Buddy!

Westin Needs an Update

We are loving Westin right now. Seriously, he is killing us with how cute he is. He is learning new things constantly. He learns so well. His most favorite things are sunglasses and hats. He doesn't keep them on for very long but he will play with them daily. Neither of these 2 things can beat his love for any ball.  He wakes up and signs either ball or Dad. Speaking of his signs, he now can say Mom, Dad, Hat, Phone, Eat, Water, Grandma, Thank You, Please, More, Cat, Dog, Baby, Bear, Hot, Cold, All Done, Shoes, and Train. I think thats all of them. 

He loves to eat, but isn't in love with everything.

He explores all the time, This particular time he got stuck under the chair. He has this super concerned look on his face.

I think he looks so handsome in this picture. Maybe like he is about ready to do a dance move or something. Since he can walk now, he always brings me his shoes and signs shoes so I'll put them on. I think he puts it together with going outside as well.

We were trying to figure out what we were going to do with his infant car seat. For a while it was in our living room and he loved to sit in it and relax. Wouldn't ever stay for too long but he sure loved getting in and out.

He has also started to sit and read books with us. He never had interest until recently.
He loves dogs. His eyes and mouth get so big and wide when he sees them and he tries to bark and pant like the dogs. He signs it too. He likes to pet them and is pretty soft with them.
He still loves his Dad more then anything. The second he walks in the door from work he doesn't want me, he wants him. Which is fine by me, since he is in the stage of wanting me to hold him while I'm making dinner.(Very Frustrating)
I might be repeating myself with this but he has all 16 teeth and has had them since he was about 13 months.

His allergic reactions are getting worse with each exposure. You'd think we'd be able to keep it under control!

Just a few weeks at a time


We moved. It was a really big decision for us. A really hard one. Still aren't quite sure why we did it. We moved 2 miles away from the beach and my heart broke. We loved it down there. It was such a great time and constant entertainment. However, we moved to a little bit bigger a little bit cheaper place with lots of new friends.

The positives. We got to paint a whole new place and thanks to a stranger blogger I found the perfect color that I fall in love with every time I see it. (Frazee CEO) We also got a new couch that I am even more in love with. Picture a chocolate brown microfiber sectional. I get a picture up sooner or later. Maybe once I decide on some pillows.

Westin likes to climb now. It actually isn't too bad now that I have all of the boxes emptied and taken down. He eventually was standing.

That's our front door...you see it? I love how its on the lower level plus we have no one above us. There is lots of room for Westin to play. We also have a little backyard. It's pretty big to us but to most it probably looks like nothing.  Since he has his new best friend, Isaiah, they needed more room.

One day I had both the boys. Isaiah could walk and Westin could crawl. They both went their separate ways. I, however, could not.

It was not a good idea to go outside, alone.

They finally decided to be in the same place. Notice Westin is already on his way out.

Shortly after we moved in we noticed a new neighbor. This guy walked right by our door.

We went to Disneyland for dinner and a few rides. We started out in California Adventure. Westin was not interested in going on anything. We forced him.

He decided it wasn't so bad.

Matt has been really busy with work. Good news in my mind, means he has a job. He also has been playing football, basketball and talking about riding his bike. I have been pulling the sewing machine a lot lately. Made a skirt, some pillow covers and some baby shower gifts. I also decided to open up an etsy shop called Lady's Place. Its a pretty big step for me but I'm enjoying it. Its just small and silly but fun for me. Stop on by and check it out.
