I learned something today....

I learned that I can clean up throw up and I am capable of doing it without throwing up myself. This is the one thing that seriously scared me about being a parent. I really really really did not think I could do it. That was NOT going to be my job. But what am I supposed to do when Brett is at work and Boston is throwing up all day? Clean it up, love my little guy, and do lots and lots of laundry. It's been a long day but I think we've made it through and we'll be good as long as Brett and I don't get whatever Boston has. Poor little guy.On a happier note, look at this cute picture of Boston and his cousin Nash is the tub. I wish I could say "What cute little fat babies" but Boston actually looks really skinny next to Nashy. We thought he was catching up, but we might've been wrong.

Playing catch up again

I have been so bad at the blogging thing lately. Since Boston doesn't sleep all day long anymore and is pretty mobile now and in to everything I spend a lot less time on the computer and more time playing. Plus Brett is home a lot in the winter so we are hanging out with him alot of the time too, and we like that :) Anyway, here's what we've been up to the last month....

Awhile ago we went to Jump On It with our friends Brad and Chanel, their boys and Kyler. For those of you that aren't familiar with Jump On It, it's a huge warehouse with like 50 trampolines all linked together. Great place to take your kids to get their energy out but kind of a dangerous concept. I'd like to get the statistics on how many kids get hurt here per week. :) I guess with a boy I'm just going to have to learn to shut one eye or both and hope for the best.

Teamwork....Carter is steering, Boston is pushing

A couple of weeks ago we were babysitting Shane so we went down to Orem and grabbed our nephew Gray and took them to Kangaroo Zoo. They had fun and were extremely worn out.

Last weekend Brett and I met my parents in Vegas. We were hoping for warmer weather :( but it was still a nice little getaway.

Since it was rainy and cold pretty much the entire time, my mom and I did a lot of shopping. Brett and my dad were so good about it. haha. This is my dad while we were shopping. We came back and caught him like this. He had found a nice little bench to take a nap on in the middle of the mall.

We ate at ESPN Zone one night and Boston was playing the funniest game with Brett. This video cracks me up.

When Boston was born I had every intention of getting his pictures taken every couple of months. Well, I did newborn pictures and these....that's still good right? We do have a lot of unprofessional pictures.

cousins- Nash, Boston, and Sadie

How Sweet

We had a good Valentine's Day. Neither of us are huge fans of Valentine's Day. It is a pretty pointless holiday. I'm not sure how it even came to be but my guess is that if it was a woman who came up with it it was for garaunteed flowers and if it was a man it was for garaunteed sex. So true right? haha. Brett did get me flowers and chocolate and the Wii Fit which I am so excited about! We went to breakfast instead of trying to fight the dinner crowds, and then we went to a movie that night. So all in all it was a great day.
Plus, I got a card that sings this song...if you're married, definitely listen to this, and if you're not, still listen to it because it's hilarious.

I think I'm all caught up now. :) Hope everyone is doing well!
