Procrastination is a bad habit

So I've been putting this blog entry off for a little while because there are a lot of pictures involved and that takes a long time and sometimes I am lazy :) Sorry for the large amount of pictures I am about to put on here. I'm not good at keeping a journal and so I use our blog as my "journal". I want to print out all of the pages and make a book out of it so I like to have all the pictures. Anyway here they are...

These ones are actually from August but I just barely got them from my Mother-in-law's camera. We were in Park City and took Boston to the pool with all of his cousins. He loved it. He is such a little water baby. No joke, he cries sometimes when I take him out of the bath.

Bathtime, the love of Boston's life. For those of you that saw Boston when he was brand new with those skinny skinny bird legs, you'll appreciate these fat fat rolls!

Not this last weekend but the weekend before that we were up in Park City for the weekend at Brett's parent's condo. On Friday JoDee, Boston and I went and met up with Katie, Krista and Karlee and the kids at the zoo while Jay and Brett went golfing. It was Boston's first time at the zoo! He had absolutely no idea what was going on but I think he had fun. :)

We came home on Saturday night but then went back up again on Sunday for dinner. We drove through American Fork Canyon for a nice scenic Sunday drive and stopped to have a mini photo shoot on the way...

And here is a sneak peak at our family pictures we had taken last week. I hope they turn out good! We haven't seen them yet.

Brett's eyes are only sort of closing in this picture. Hopefully we'll have one where they are good and open. :)
OK... just one last thing. Those of you that like treats will like this. Like 6 months ago we bought one of these glorious things

A vita-mix. One of the many things I've been sucked in to at Costco. I got it because I wanted to be able to make some if not all of my own baby food with fresh fruits and veggies. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this thing! I've used it to make lots of different stuff like fresh Oj, fresh fruit syrup (it heats it up for you), fresh salsa, etc. And tonight a yummy yummy treat. This treat is a great alternative to the Chocolate Reese's milkshake I crave too often. I think it tastes just like it but with WAAAAY less calories of course. A much much much healthier option. And although I do love the vitamix, a regular blender will do for this one of course. ;) Here is the recipe:

1 1/2 cups Lite Vanilla Soy Milk
1/4 cup dry hot cocoa mix (I use the Swiss Miss no sugar added kind)
2 Tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
1 bananna
2 cups of ice
Yum Yum!

Phew that was a long one! Promise to break it up next time!

And the mullet is gone....

I've been putting off cutting Boston's hair for some time now. Mostly because in my head cutting his hair meant that he would be a big boy and I wasn't ready for that. However his "shark fin" as we called it (the 2 maybe pushing 3 inch mohawk) and the mullet that hung over his collar and the hair that was an inch, maybe more over his ears was getting a little out of hand. So, I finally gave in and cut his hair last night. Phew.... he is still cute :)

Accidental Bangs! Dedicated to Leanne Mueller :)

What happened to me today was totally and completely by accident. I was scheduled for a haircut today and it got moved to tomorrow. Being the impatient person that I am, I decided I would take matters in to my own hands and give myself a "pre-haircut" haircut. I was just going to take my thinning shears and thin out a few places, no harm done. Well then I decided I would cut a few pieces around my face so I had to get the regular scissors out. I then took a chunk in the front with the intention of thinning it out but grabbed the wrong scissors and cut it OFF instead. I wish I had a picture of my face. I felt like I was going to throw up. HAHA. Anyway, now I have these super short accidental bangs. WOOPS. I don't want bangs but there just isn't much I can do about it now except get used to them for a little while and hope they grow fast.
The reason I dedicate this to Leanne is because of the HILARIOUS message she left on my phone a few years ago that still makes me laugh when I think about it. She cut her own bangs and called me for help after. LOL. I wish I still had that message so I could add it on here. Anyway, Leanne, I now share your panic from that moment. :)
Those of you who come to me to get your hair done... do so at your own risk. Haha, just kidding, This will never happen again to me or anyone, totally learned my lesson today. :)

Where have we been?

Nowhere. Just here and there and home hanging out. I'm not sure why I haven't blogged in so long. Maybe because nothing really "blog worthy" has happened in the last few weeks. Plus I've been bad at taking pictures lately, so anything we have done isn't exactly documented. But for an update, Boston is still huge and getting bigger all the time. He is really fun right now. His little personality is coming out more and more. His new trick he started today is leaning forward from a sitting position and getting on to his tummy. So you know what that means, next step is crawling. Great. I'm hoping it takes just a little longer for him to figure that one out. He watched Jungle Book today while I cleaned out our closet and loved it, so funny, I was singing the song that King Louie sings and he thought it was hilarious. I'm sure if he could talk he would've told me how ridiculous I looked dancing around and singing trying to make him laugh. The things we do just to get a good giggle out of a baby. Totally worth it. We also found out today that the people that were buying the house we are living in backed out so now it is going to forclose and we will either have to buy it or move in the next month or so. Yay! I love moving! NOT. For those of you that don't know, we have been renting the house that we're in so that we could have some more time to find a house we'd like to buy. Well, the guy who owns the house defaulted like 4 months ago so we knew forclosure was a possibility but then we were hopeful when someone made an offer to buy, meaning we would have until May to find something. But plans change I guess, so wish us luck! :) Anyway, I think that's about it. I do have some pictures though, I know that's what everyone really likes to see.... they are random ones that I took on my phone
Boston in his big boy chair. The Bumbo was getting a little scary on the counter since he can pretty much get out of it.

Boston loves this little book. He isn't so much in to reading it but likes the noises it makes and gets frustrated that he can't pull the animal heads off to put them in his mouth. Oh and he loves loves loves Koda. She doesn't even have to do anything and he thinks she's funny. I'm sure she is excited for a lifetime of getting her tail pulled.
