knox- 3 1/2 months... almost

on my photog blog i'm doing 'mondays w/ micah' so prospective clients and the world in general can get to know me better. this is my post from today--- i'll probably post them here too so that if i turn this blog into a book i'll have them all in the same place. i love my little man!
since we’re currently packing up our place to move to oklahoma— our house is a mess! this little guy loves attention… but if he can’t have all of mine then he better dang well be entertained! so this is where the johnny jump-up comes into play. he still isn’t heavy enough {or our doorway that we have it hooked up on is too high} to actually jump in it… so we improvised and turned it into his little swing. he LOVES it. today i had to whip out the camera cause he was just gigglin while i was swingin him.
and since he just learned to roll over from his back to him tummy a few days ago, here’s the face he gets every time he gets over—- it’s got ‘PROUD’ written all over it huh?  ohh i love my little munchkin. those drools and the milky tongue in the shot above are just bonus features;)
stay tuned— cause this friday i will officially be starting FAQ friday…. and i’m super excited about it! if you have anything you want answered— let me know here or on facebook.



First: We've got another little roller in our family as of yesterday! Knox is now rolling over from his back to his tummy {3 mo. & 10 days so I can remember---Jonnie was exactly 4 mo. to the day}. He's only rolled over from his tummy to his back once but it was more of an accident I think:). Kinda fun though... he's getting to be such a big boy already!

Second: I got my new photo blog up and running!---- After staying up WAY too late last night..... but I'm super excited about the changes and hope you all stop by and say hi! Be sure and add it to your blogroll so you can keep updated on what we're up to over there.

Third: We are starting the drive out to Oklahoma for the big move in THIRTEEN days from today! and even crazier than that--- I'm heading down to UT with the kids in EIGHT days! So really we have to have everything packed and ready to go before then.... AHHHH!! We are SO excited though. Can't wait to get all moved in to our new little place. On a side note, while I'm down in UT I'll be doing a few last photo sessions and have two more nights open---- if anyone needs to book a last minute session let me know asap so we can work ya in! 

Fourth: JD's little brother, Monte, leaves on his mission to Honduras on Wednesday. We are so excited for him and so proud of his decision to spend the next two years as a missionary for our church. We sure will miss him but we know there is nothing better that he could be doing right now..... LOVE YOU MONT!


2nd child

 the culprit:
and the innocent victim:
i'm SO glad that jonnie is the big sister and knox is the little guy. i think i would feel a lot worse if a big brother was picking on my poor innocent 3 month old baby girl. don't get me wrong... i still feel bad--- but at least little boys are innately tougher... hopefully? jonnie definitely has her moments when she just wants to tease him or she just does things that she doesn't understand she's not supposed to. there have been lots of those lately. i figured i better write them here so i could tell her about them later when she might not believe me.

-if i lay knox on the floor, i have to be super careful cause whenever he is down, jonnie walks up to him and says 'jump knox?' umm.... NO! 
-she just recently started squeezing his face and getting really frustrated and saying 'look at me knox!'... this is what was happening in the pictures below. 
-sometimes she'll walk up to him and give him a big 'RAWWWR' to see if it'll make him jump. 
-whenever she's eating something, she always wants to share with knox... i gotta keep a close eye on her when she has snacks! she'll offer and put the food by his lips then look at me and say--- only mama's milk? YES. and she'll laugh and say 'okayyyy'. stinker!
-and she MIGHT have pushed knox off the couch once. yeah-- that was awesome!

 mom---- put down the camera and HELP!
luckily, he's a fast forgiver:)

i realize this makes me sound like an awesome mom.... i swear i watch my kids! it's just sometimes i need to run and do something around the house without lugging the babe around. i've learned my lesson, i try to have jonnie come with me now so she isn't left alone with knox. that's when all the magic happens!

88% of the time jonnie is a SUPER sweet big sister and loves knox to death. and then there is that other 12% when she's a little rough. we're working on that... but i realize it's sort of what we signed up for when we had them 2 years apart. she talks so well that we forget sometimes how young she really is.

on a side note, have i mentioned lately how much i love hanging out with these two? i might have some of the coolest kids around. jonnie is a go go go type girl--- has been since she was born! and knox is just cool as a cucumber. i LOVE it! and i think they will be best buds in the next couple years since they are so different. we'll see--- but i can't wait for them to be able to play:)


4th of july weekend

we were down in utah over the fourth.... so it was loaded with lots of fun! we hung out lots with my family and my aunt mary from az came up to visit too which was awesome. we saw a few of our friends and did some fun things with them---- always nice since we don't see them nearly enough! our weekend was filled with going to see Cars 2, swimming, slip 'n sliding, a couple parades, firework shows, DQ treats, rook, celebrating my mom's b-day, jumping on the wet trampoline to cool off, and i had some fun photo sessions in between all of that. here are just some pics from all the fun. {of course i didn't get in a single one of them! my bad---- i was there too, i promise}
 jonnie is such a little nose picker.... i had to document this so we'd remember!
