Jason Birthday celebration

Jason's Birthday is on Thursday and Last night we were over at his parents house for dinner were his sister and brother made and decorated a birthday cake for him. It turned out awesome!! They did a great job!!

Bear Lake

Last week we went to Bear Lake for our Family vacation. We left and got there late wednesday night and then got home late Saturday night. We had a blast but it was too short! We spent alot of our time at the Lake. The kids loved to play and swim in the water, play in the sand and just being outside. We drove around the lake. It was nice seeing it all. We swam in the pool. Relaxed and just enjoyed being together as a family. Joseph did not get in the water it was would have been way too cold for him. We drove back through Logan canyon and stopped at the olive garden for dinner in Logan. The food was great but the service wasn't very good. But we had fun anyway!!

6 weeks old

Today Joseph is 6 weeks old. He is getting so big. We weighed him yesterday and he is already 12 pounds. I can't believe how much he has filled out. He has a double chin and has some fat on his legs and his tummy. He is so cute!! He has started to smile but still has not smiled at me. Jason got a half smile out of him. Joseph makes the cutest noise, he purrs and is starting to find his voice. He has figured out how to get his hands in his mouth and to suck on them. It is so cute.

He is in need of a hair cut already. I can't believe it. Luke didn't have his first hair cut till he was about a year. Joseph loves his showers and his baths. He does great and loves to be clean. Although it doesn't last very long because he spits up a ton!! He likes his binky, which is great!! Joseph is a very content little guy, He loves to be held.

His brother and sisters love to hold him but he only lets them hold him for just a few short minutes till he is done. Lydia is such a little mommy. She loves that she can hold him and pick him up. She does great. She like that she do that and Luke and Lacey can't.

Joseph has slept through the night 5 times now, and I think that he will be from now on. He is such a good baby, and we love him alot. He fits into our family perfectly. I don't like to leave him even for a short time. I went to get a pedi and I had a hard time leaving him for an hour and a half. My dad was great and watched him at the mall so that if he needed me then he could be close. But he did great, and slept pretty much the whole time.

Joseph loves the sling, because then he is close to me and I can still get things done. It is the best! I highly recommened them. He falls right to sleep every time. The other day I was trying to make dinner and he was in his bouncer seat and being fussy and I put Lydia in charge of him to make him happy. She didn't want to be in there he just wanted to be held. Lydia said to me. Mom put him in the sling. She knew that he would be a happy camper if he was in his sling.

Joseph has spent a 6th of his life up at Bear Lake. He loves it up there, it is so relaxing! He does great. He sleeps and eats and just is content with life up there and everywhere. I will post a picture of him today a little later. We love little Jospeh so much!! He is the best.


Last week I was cooking so I put Joseph in the Bumbo on the counter. He was tried and fell asleep.

Our sweet Baby!! Joseph sleeping in his swing. What a cute baby boy. He is getting so big.


With the wedding yesterday, it was a big day for all of us. Joseph was a real trooper through it all. He did great all day! He slept alot off and all through the day. Last night he gave me a huge treat! He slept through the night. I put him to bed about 10- 10:30 ish and he slept till 7 and then I had to wake him up. He was waking up, on his own, but I needed to feed him. It was very nice. I'm not sure if it was a one time thing or if he is going to be doing it from now on. I guess we will have to wait and see. Joseph is getting bigger by the day. He sleeps alot and has grown alot. He is filling out.

Joseph is very patient with Luke, Lydia and Lacey holding him. He does very good when they hold him, at least most of the time. He is such a sweet boy and all love him very much!! I love having only one baby to hold and feed and change. It is so nice to be able to enjoy him and look at him and just love him. Oh, I love his hair!! It is so easy with one. We love the twins, but we will take one at a time any day!! It is much better that way!! I can't believe he is 3 weeks old, wow the time has gone by fast. I am feeling way better these days!! I love our four kids. I don't dare take them anywhere by myself yet, but I'm sure that I will soon. It is sure nice not to be pregnant anymore!! We sure do love little Joseph Harrison Peterson!!
