Bentley is Seven weeks! Blessing photos

Bentley is growing so fast! He loves to use his legs to jump up from our laps. I will have to video it sometime. He gets so excited when he can propel himself upwards while doing this. He is starting to smile tons which is so fun to watch also. The other night he only woke up once which I got so excited about. I was lying there awake waiting for him to wake up ... it was so crazy. Anyways, hope everyone is enjoying their spring because here in utah we are getting tons of snow! Below are the pictures we took of Bentley in his blessing outfit. He is so adorable!

Six weeks and visitors!

Chad, Jessica, and Annabelle came to visit us. We felt so special(: They came towards the end of the week when my other family was still here and we had a blast. Chad went snowboarding with everyone and we celebrated Tylers birthday that Saturday. He turned the big 17. I can't believe how tall he is getting. He went on a date that night so we just ate his cupcakes without him. After my family left Sunday we took Bentley to church for the first time and listened to stake conference. Elder Holland gave a great talk to the youth and parents about giving our all! It was amazing to hear him speak. We went with Chad and Jess to Tucanos restaurant on Monday and they say it is one of their favorites now. The rest of the week we just hung out, relaxed and enjoyed eachothers company. Chad broke out the dutch oven and they made us a delicious dessert. Annabelle was so good with Bentley. She will be a great big sister. Anytime Bentley cried she would bring me his pacifier, blanket, and even a diaper. She is so cute. Thanks so much for coming to see us. We already miss youguys.
Bentley loves to visit. He acts like he is talking to you when he moves his mouth and coo's. It melts my heart when he flashes his cute big smile at me and bats his big blue eyes. He likes to help hold his bottle when we feed him and he even started watching baby einstein videos when annabelle was here.
Hope everyone is well.

Me and my boy!

Five weeks and your Blessing Day!

After being in Arizona for a week we headed back up to Utah for Bentley's blessing day. My family drove up and Jons family drove down to be there. In addition we had Uncle Brad and his family, Cousin Curtis, Candace, Alli, and Brittany. (forgive me if I forgot anyone... it was a very hectic day.(: ) Thank you to everyone that came. We blessed him in our home so that everyone could be there. Just before the blessing I was trying to get him fed and changed so that he would be happy. Well this plan failed because I did something I never due and dumped half of Bentley's bottle down the drain after i was done pumping. I hate feeding him formula because I think it smells bad and I didn't want him to get it on his outfit. Anyways, I ended up feeding him formula but everyone was waiting on us so I quickly burped him and handed him to Jon. Well, he ended up crying the whole blessing. Regardless, Jon did such a great job and gave Bentley a beautiful blessing. I am so thankful for the priesthood in our home and I am thankful for a husband that is worthy to have it.
After his blessing we had a delicious meal. Thanks to everyone that helped bring something. Everything was so great. Bentley was passed around but towards the end of our gathering Jon was holding him and I noticed something dripping on his pants... yep you guessed it... Bentley pooped in his blessing outfit, down Jon's leg, and on to the floor. To make matters worse, Jon and I didn't get any pictures of him with us or by himself on his blessing day. We will have to take some and reinact that day for our memories sake. I will post them when I take them.
I just want to thank all those who made a special trip to come. You know who you are(:
The rest of the week we spent with my family having fun and hanging out. We enjoyed movies, bowling for tylers Birthday, going out to eat, fishing ( not so much... long story), snowbaording ( Jon tried it for the first time and did great except that he smacked his face and body into trees and bushes and scraped his face pretty bad), and playing in the snow. We miss and love youguys!

4 weeks and a visit to Arizona!

At four weeks old Jon had some business down in Arizona to attend to, so we packed up and headed down. I of course was so excited because this meant I could show Bentley to the rest of my family and friends. He had fun meeting everyone and loved the weather. It was so nice out compared to the cold Utah weather so we had a blast taking walks, swinging outside, and watching dad swim. Jon and I played catch, and had fun visiting with everyone. Bentley is growing so quickly and is starting to recognize us when we hold him. He smiles and coo's at us and is so active. He loves being outside and I could have guessed by the way he stares out windows when he's inside that he would be an outside boy.
