Easton 11 Months

Easton is 11 months old today. He is our go with the flow little man or as Chad lovingly calls him E-Dog. Even when we are out and going all day missing his naps he is so good about it. On Saturday we went to a baptism where he was quite the little ladys man...





After we went  to the zoo and then headed to a dance performance by one of Chad's seminary students. He was pretty tired...




But he loved watching the dancers. He sat on my lap and jumped up and down he was so excited. One of his favorite things to do is hang out with the girls in their bedroom. He has now started trying to climb the ladder to the bunk beds. But surprisingly he knows how to carefully climb back down all by himself. I was pretty impressed.


He still has no interest in walking. But does like to walk along things. He is content to just crawl. Lately he starts crawling and then lays his head down on the floor to rest and then goes again. It is so funny. He also has a turbo crawl when he is excited. 

 

We got to help Brad and Becca move a couple weeks ago and Easton enjoyed helping. The girls loved spending time with their cousins too.


We drove Eleanor to the park for a picnic yesterday and Easton thouroughly enjoyed dessert. He licked all of the whipped cream off the lid.


The grass was wet but he wanted to crawl on it so the started crawling on his hands and feet it was pretty funny.


I got a bike trailer for Lydia and Easton so I can ride my bike with them. At first Easton was not sure about it and fought me whenever I tried to put him in it. But now he really likes to take rides in it. 


Happy 11 months E-Dog!

Some Fun and the Beginnings of a New Floor!

On Friday I took the kiddos to the gym to play. Ever since Easton was born I haven't driven out there much and the girls were so excited to go.




Easton really enjoyed himself and loved crawling into the foam pit. But his favorite was definately swinging on the rope. He would giggle and jibber jabber while I swung him.

We went to Grandma and Grandpa Millers house of course and had lots of fun there. Lydia was especially excited that Grandma had made brownies! When Chad got off of work we headed over to the driving range to practice our putting. Chad and his Dad shortened some clubs for the girls which they love.



Easton was content to sit and play with one of the holes. He liked to put a ball in and take it out.



Chad and I decided to use part of our tax refund to do something we have wanted to do ever since we bought our house. Tile the floor!!! We haven't had the time since both of us were in school but we started on Saturday and are totally excited!


We fell in love with the tile that looks like hardwood. And thanks to my Mom and Dad we are able to do it ourselves. They came over and did a training session for us and supervised and now we are pros haha. And also a thank you to Grandma Clayton for taking the kiddos to the Children's Museum so we could tile! We started in our dining room which means we have no table. We all picnic on the kitchen floor and the girls have their own table...

Chad and I laughed because this reminds us of when we were newlyweds eating on a little wooden crate on our apartment floor because Chad and his Dad were building our table. Good times.
