Smiley Boy

This past week Boston has been smiling a lot! He even laughs out loud. Sometimes I don't know what he's laughing at, but it is so cute! He has also started sleeping 7-8 hours most nights. Yeah!Some of Zariph's co-workers gave us this fun jungle "gym". It has fun hanging toys and music. It's pretty cute. Boston loves it!

Weekend BBQ

This weendend we had two fun BBQ parties at our house. The first one was on Friday night with Zariph's team from work. We had great food, enjoyed the wonderful weather in our shady backyard, and had a blast playing Catch Phrase (one of my favorite games).

The second one was on Saturday night with both Zariph's family and my family and our friends, Rachael and Jesse. It was fun socializing with everyone, and thanks to Jesse for introducing me to Rock Band. I had a blast.

Weekly Update

Well, I can at least try and post once a week, to update anyone interested in how my week has gone.

I've been wanting to go on a walk with Boston and Zariph for a while, so I decided for FHE on Monday night, we would get out and walk around the block. So, after getting all strapped in a ready we headed off to enjoy the wonderful weather we had. Boston usually is not a "spitty uppy" baby, but I think the ride was a little bouncy and he had just eaten. Well, we go two houses down the street and the spit up started to come... and continued to come. Poor baby! So, we had to end early and turn back for home. Everything was a sticky mess! And of course, I couldn't resist the photo op.

On Tuesday, we went to our nieces high school graduation. Congratulations, Miranda!

On Thursday, Boston and I went to Rachael's to play (and scrapbook). I worked on a cute "Baby" wooden letters thing for Boston's wall. I will post that after I finish it.

Also, I tried to get some good, professional looking photos. I thought this one was pretty cute.
On Friday, my sister and family threw a baby shower for Boston and me. Lindsay has the photos on her camera, but here are all the gifts.These are the way cute shoes from Emily.

I've had a few different baby showers the last couple of months. The faculty at school threw one for me, and my 3rd grade class threw one for me before we got Boston. And my ward threw one for me a couple of weeks ago. We've gotten a lot of wonderful things. We appreciate everything!We are definitely loved!
This isn't from this week, but here is Boston in his favorite spot in the house...

Yes, it's his changing table. I guess he just thinks it's peaceful to lay there and look out the window. I can leave him for about 30 minutes here, before he wants to be picked up. This is also a great place to take him when he's upset, it usually calms him right down.

And lastly, here's the "feet shot" for my mom.

How sweet!

First Haircut

I know it's been a while since I posted, I hope to do better. Anyway, we gave Boston his first haircut this morning. After cutting Zariph's hair I decided I was sick of Boston's scruffy hair over his ears and the long mullet in the back.

Here are the before pictures:
