13 Months

It's hard to imagine loving this boy more & more each day but somehow I manage to. He keeps surprising us with the things he learns. He's starting to copy what we say and is getting really good at "uh oh" & "what." Each week I have to update Jared on the new things he is doing.
My darling cousin took these pictures for me while we were in Rexburg.....and she was 40 weeks pregnant. There were too many good ones to choose from so I posted a lot & had to leave out the many others I LOVE.
This is what he does when he's trying to tell you something or point to what he wants.
For the first several shots he just gave us a blank look and sat very still.


He's getting good at stacking blocks and has always been good at knocking them down.

He loves putting anything in his mouth. Here he has a tiny bell.
My cousin had a cute baby boy today! I can't thank her enough for doing this & am grateful her baby stayed in a bit longer so she was able to.

Birthday Boy

I can't believe my baby is 1! He is a fun little busy body & I'm lucky he's mine. He scoot crawls & likes to stand up any chance he gets, including during the middle of the night. He likes me to help him walk everywhere & LOVES exploring new things, going on walks in his stroller & dogs & cats.
His actual birthday was spent with just he & I since Jared didn't get home until late that night.
Here he is looking innocent
He kept trying to eat the stem which is rough & I was worried it would scratch his gums.

He didn't like me telling him not to eat it.

Now he's happy but with tears in his eyes.

His birthday party was the day after & happened to be the warmest day of the week. Jared grilled hamburgers & hot dogs.

Wyatt loves "muffin cakes"

Emmett had a lot of good help opening presents.

Cake time.

Now he's one so he should sleep through the night by now right?

I have a hard time finding things he can eat with only a few teeth. He won't drink milk so I made some chocolate pudding to eat with his carrots.

We went to Disney On Ice with Casey & Mel & sadly I didn't really get pictures. Here's the best we got with Emmett & Wyatt. It was fun & Emmett did really well. I was worried he'd hate it.

Hogle Zoo & pumpkin patch

In the middle of October we went to Hogle Zoo & a pumpkin patch with Casey, Melanie, Wyatt, & Charlie. It was a surprisingly hot day & we were a bit over dressed so Emmett got to hang out at the zoo with no pants. He liked the animals but really enjoyed holding on to the the fences & riding in his stroller. My pictures are in the wrong order & I can't move them.

We took the awesome train ride. Emmett actually liked it.

The next day we relaxed then ate at our local (not-so-great) Family Tree Restuarant then went to the Red Barn for ice cream.

It was a fun weekend!

Week at Grandma & Grandpa C's

Last week E & I spent the week in Paris & with lots of help from my mom & Jared, completed a few fall projects. We had a lot of extra wood from our fence so Jared cut it up for me.

Hanging on to his handles again.
He loves kitties just like his mom. He loved seeing fluffers everyday. He would chase him around the kitchen in his walker.

Learning to read!

He LOVES apples & gets very upset if you take it away before he's finished.

Apple on the lawn (this might be after he finished the apple & is now eating a snack but his shirt was drenched.

Apple on the deck

mowhawk! His hair won't grow as fast everywhere else.

A fun video of him. He taught himself how to meow.....or fluffers taught him. Whenever I say kitty he looks around for one.

Fun with Emmett

He loves holding on to handles & he searched to find a part of the cart not covered so he could hang on.
This boy also loves eating! Maybe thats why he's a chunk.

On a walk to Bridal Veil falls. Holding onto his handles again.

After buying some ears of corn we went on a quick walk by the orchards.

He also loves being in his stroller. A nice evening walk through the orchards.

Eating again.

And another thing he loves is taking baths.

I let him soak for quite awhile and love seeing his wrinkly feet.

I love this boy!

Emmett & I went with Jared to his training in Portland since it fell during our 6th anniversary. Jared had an earlier flight and my flight ended up getting delayed an extra hour so I got to hang out with this busy body. I was crazy to think he'd understand the idea of setting him on the changing pad was so he wouldn't touch the floor. oh well.

We played in the hotel room, went swimming, & went on a lot of walks while daddy was at work. Emmett got a lot of attention everywhere we went. People would always stop & talk to him & comment how happy he was. People don't typically do that in Utah so it was fun.

We headed to Seaside which is a beautiful little town on the coast.

I guess it is known as the last stop for Lewis & Clark.

It was very unique. I of course had to go & see this fat cat in the bookstore.

So many unique touches.

Our hotel was right on the beach so we went for a walk in the evening & in the morning. Both were quite cold & windy.

Another fun touch!

Next we went to Cannon Beach & saw Haystack Rock.

Jared just had to eat here. We shared fish & chips & a cup of clam chowder.

Another cool fence.

Next stop was the Tillamook cheese factory. We took a tour then each tried 3 flavors of ice cream.

No this isn't mom's old kitchen table. It's the wall in the elevator :)

Squeaky cheese all for me. Jared thinks it's nasty.

We headed back to Portland & stayed there the rest of the time.

Multnomah Falls

We didn't get to hike to the top but it was still a pretty site.

Emmett was asleep until we were ready to leave so we headed back so he could see the waterfall.

The train was right next to us & was so loud as it went by but not even that woke up the sleepy boy.

Pittock Mansion. We got there too late to do the tour so we just looked through the windows.
Next we went on a bike ride along the waterfront in Portland. Emmett did not like it.

So he fell asleep.

We had a great time & had good weather. Jared got a cold the first day there which was a bummer, but othere than that we had a lot of fun!
