Baby Dalin

I have a nephew! He came unexpectedly on August 27th...3 weeks early! I was able to be at his birth and take some pictures of the goings on. It was amazing. If you count Spencer's birth, this was the 8th birth I have witnessed. It never gets old. Every time it is the most amazing miracle and a witness to me of our loving Heavenly Father's plan for his children.

Me and my sister!

Family Fun

We got to spend time with both both our this weekend. We spent Friday with my family in Layton and then we spent the day with Nate's family on Saturday. We had a great time. Here are some fun pictures I took.

Later Family

My dad made this little pool in his back yard.
They kids LOVE to play in it!

Spencer had a blast!
(Yes, that is a rock he is trying to eat...)

We were missing a few family members that day :(

Higbee Family
Spencer and Daddy playing.

All the Higbee Family

This is Nate with his siblings and parents.
Nate's little brother just got home from his mission this last
week and so this was the first time the family
had been all together again for a few years.

11 Months old!

Somehow it is the 9th again and Spencer is 11 months old.
Don't ask me how that happened...
Here are a few things that our little guys is doing:

                      He likes to sit at the top of the stairs and drop toys off and see what happens :)

We need a caution sign on our stairs :)

He loves to eat and taste everything.
Here is is ripping some cardboard off his fort...

And here he is eating it...
(kind of a freaky picture, I know but
I thought it was so funny that I got it by accident). 

He loves to sit and read his books
(and eat them from time to time as well).

He has created a new hands free method of eating :)

And of course, some pictures just for fun...

Tasting a leaf...

Tasting the bench...

And we are SO done!
This was gona be the perfect picture.
Maybe another day.

I think I can see his stomach through there...

Spencer's room

I have been working on a remodel for Spencer's room for quite some time now. I am pretty happy with how things turned out so far. Nate thinks is was silly to worry about what his room looked like and kept telling me that Spencer didn't care if it looked nice or not. Let's be honest...I did this for me! I love to make a space look nice. It just feels good. Mind you this is nothing from a magazine but I'm okay with that. I still have a few things that need to be finished but I am not sure when that will happen so I decided to just go a head a post what I have done. I did it all for about $20 - 25.

I made the curtains out of a sheet and lined it with dark fabric to block out the light.

I refinished some pillows that we already had.

I got these frames form the DI for $1.50 each.

I found this sweet poem and loved it! I just used foam board and scrapbook paper.

I got this idea from one of my favorite blogs and just made it my own way.
