March was pretty uneventful other then Jami sprained his ankle pretty good playing church basketball. We celebrated Easter on the Monday before and everyone had a good time. J really enjoyed his “make your own silly straw”, and L has the very large sweet tooth. She can tell you exactly where the candy was and often points to it. J has been practicing letters and numbers and has been getting pretty good and writing and recognizing them.
L has been a starting to make noises that sound a lot like words. For example several times I think I have heard her say “I want that”, “candy”, “I want milk” and often screams when no one will talk bask to her. She starting to point at her nose and does say momma and daddy. J has found out that friends are the best and often has a hard time saying goodbye. He is getting pretty good at helping with chores and Jami can’t wait till he is old enough to take out the trash
In January we went to the Treehouse museum, a Christmas gift (thank you Matt and family). We had lots of fun and J participated in the play the “Too much noise”. We also moved into our new apartment in Harrisville. Its been nice to have Jami home for lunch now that we live so close to his work.

She loved the hospital room with babies but wouldn’t hold still for a picture
J participated in his first play
no one but Dad would dress up
In February I started my new job on the Orthopedic floor at McKay Dee Hospital. I am so grateful for all the family that helped watch kids so I could do orientation. I miss the medical floor but am gaining new skills (I removed stitches for the first time!) We also went to the Train show, J could have spent the whole day there watching the model trains. J has also learned to start writing numbers and give his first talk in primary. L had her first black eye when she fell off the bed.
We went to the train show at the old train station
J would watch the trains all day
We got to ride in a caboose
L fell from the bed this month and hit the nightstand pretty hard, this is the remains of her black eye
So Jami and I have been living in an apartment without internet, so needless to say I have not been the best about blogging. The great new is that our new apartment in Ogden has internet included so maybe I will start to be better about it. So to kick it off here are a few highlights from the past two years

So Christmas eve guess who cut his first tooth…. and then cut another one on New Years eve…..Baby J that’s who! At first I was like that wasn’t to bad but recently Baby J has started throwing fits which are not so fun, so I may have eaten my own words regarding teething. I was lucky enough to be put on call Chirstmas eve and then a co-worker asked if I could switch my shift with her on New Years eve, So I was really lucky to be able to spend my holidays with my family. We invited the Havens family to come up and had a blast celebrating the birth of our Savior. The holiday was filled with carols, food, gifts, first good snow storm and games. I feel like Jami spoiled me with pretty pots and pans AND a bed frame! All I got him was a coat that is questionable in the sleeve length. I was upset because Baby J’s gift didn’t come until this week but look how happy he is about cloth diapers! We’ll see if mom and dad are just as big of fans
My holiday felt a little lacking because we didn’t see as much of my family and didn’t do as many of my family traditions, or it could probably just be because my parents are out of the country. Boy, do I miss them. But Jami humored me and took me snow shoeing, here is Baby J’s first snowshoeing excursion, as you can tell he is not so sure about the cold.

After the hike
I tried to get some photos of J loving the Christmas tree but he was not a fan of the tree, like none-at-all, if we put him to close he would cry and squirm away with a Bah-Hum-Bug.
I even tried to win him over with some ornaments
In the end he gave me a smile, but I have decided I need a real camera if I am going to get the shots I see and drool over on the internet
I forgot to take my talent in for the Robertson Talent portion of an fhe I did with my sisters in the valley; so here they are. I made the stocking and the star to go on top of our tree (it was really hard trying to find one I liked and finally made one out of desperation, I really don’t like angels as toppers for some reason)
Well Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to All!!!
Baby J was blessed on the first week in October, (what a wait I know). We were blessed to have most of our family make it! We are ever so grateful for all those that participated and brought food. Someone said he looked like a “dapper chap” but I was pleased with his outfit overall; especially as I looked all over the valley for something to go with the bow tie I made him from left overs from my wedding dress.
Thanks to my sister Jill who was kind enough to take some photos for me
Can you guess what he was for Halloween?
We have quite the escape artist, I went in to check on Jameson the other day and found him like so. We usually dress him and swaddle him, he is very good at wiggling out of everything
We went on a “hike” and picnic for Labor day in Smithfield, there was even some wild life viewing
Here he is at two and a half months. He started to interact with toys and trying to hold things its been so fun
He looks a little startled, I know
Here is a six week picture
