Alexander's Three Months Old!

I'm a stay at home mom to the CUTEST 3 month old boy ever! Well, actually I do work a little, but I am lucky enough that my job allows me to take my son with me and take as many breaks as I need! It is seriously such a blessing for my family.

At three months he loves to stand up while being held! He can stand while holding onto things, like the couch or the back of the bench at church. His Grandpa walked at 7 months and his Daddy walked at 9 months so we will see when he walks!
He is quite the little dancer. He just loves to move and groove whether he is standing up or laying down.
He's beginning to teethe... yay... they probably won't cut until 5-6 months though.

He loves going on walks with Mommy and Daddy and sitting in his stroller.
 This is what happens when Xander won't smile at the camera... My husband makes him do the fishy face...

We also officially have a thumb sucker! Considering that I sucked my thumb until I was like 6, I am not that surprised. But we caught the first time he did it on camera! It's blurry but still adorable.

And look at my little helper! Xander loves sitting in his Bumbo while I cook or clean! As long as he can see mommy he's smiley and giggly!

His eyes are still a gorgeous deep dark blue, but occasionally they will have a few brown or green flecks in them, but sure hope I get a blue eyed boy! Oh, and his hair, definitely red in the sun! The new hair that is starting to grow also has some nice curl to it! 

He is now super talkative. He could talk for days and tell you millions of stories if you let him. He growls and screeches and giggles. They are basically the best sounds I have heard in my entire life. 

He can still fit in newborn clothes though he mostly wears 0-3 month clothes and he's still in size one diapers! He's such a little guy and we love it!

That's pretty much it! He's growing and learning and getting cuter everyday! Here are some more pictures to prove it!

Oh and who can resist lipstick kissy pictures of their baby? NOT ME!

Always Smile!

My {not so} New Year's Resolution

I know, I know. It's not New Years. I'm either really behind or really ahead of the curve. I'll let you decide which ;)

Today in church we talked about all the the bad things going on in the world. The wars, murders, racism, the hate, lying, cheating, stealing, and just about every Evil thing you can think of and how everyone is attacking each other on social media. It seems that many people post things just to start an argument.Why?

A scripture came to my mind while I was listening to other's thoughts on the contention. If you are not LDS (Mormon), this scripture comes from the Book of Mormon, whether you believe in the Book of Mormon or not, I think we can agree on its text when Jesus says:

"29. For verily, verily I say unto you, he that hath the spirit of contention is not of me, but is of the devil, who is the father of contention, and he stirreth up the hearts of men to contend with anger, one with another.
30. Behold, this is not my doctrine, to stir up the hearts of men with anger, one against another; but this is my doctrine, that such things should be done away."
3 Nephi 11:29-30

 After we got home my head was just spinning with all kinds of thoughts about how I could and should protect my little family from all that Evil. Especially being a new mom, the LAST thing I want to do is throw my son in the middle of everything. Can anyone else relate?

Then I got to thinking, Am I adding to the contention?  Am I adding to the negativity? Am I part of the problem?
If I was, I didn't want to be. I DON'T want to be.
So, that's it, that is the reason for this post. The is my written resolution:

Imagine what the world would be like if we all decided to do so?

This does NOT mean I don't have opinions on hot topics in the world, but rather I will defend my views in such a way that I support things I agree with rather than tear down what I do not.
 That I will not force my opinions on those who do not see things my way.
I will try to keep this blog free of hate and contention the best that I can! I want to post about the positive things in my life and in the world so that this can be a safe haven for all those needing an positive boost! As commenters and readers I hope that you too will keep things positive on here and in your own lives as well!

Thank you for all your Love and support as I plan to spread happiness, love, positive thoughts and ideas to all those who read.
You are Beautiful, wonderful, and strong!

Always Smile!

And So it Begins...

Well, Here goes nothing.
I am ready to become a BLOG MOM!

A Blogger? ME? We'll see ;)
Oh wow... a Mom. ME? I'm a MOM!

When I started this blog two years ago, I had been married about 8 months and I could have never foreseen the journey we would go through!

Now we are about to celebrate our 3rd anniversary in December! Three amazing years with one amazing husband! I mean LOOK at that Stud! Don't look too much though, he's taken. (Sorry not sorry ladies)

Not only do I have this handsome man, but another handsome little man just came into my life about 3 months ago!

How perfect is he? He's sweetest and funniest baby ever and I'm not biased. That's a whole different journey that will need to put in a few different posts. So, you can look forward to that.

I hope you enjoy my journey of the past, present, and future!

Always Smile!
