July 2015

I keep falling more and more in love with this little boy!  

Momma's banana bread helper.

Making journals for mutual.

Fun playdate with Emma & Lindsey.


Mastering his new trick of scooting and thus getting stuck under furniture.

Starting solids…slowly but surely, and through a mesh feeder.  He loved bananas.

Happy 4th of July!

Our bishop's family invited us over for a fun 4th of July dinner and fireworks.  
Sister Buys' decorations were soooo cute and made my favorite holiday's dreams come true!

Cranberry juice, gatorade, and sprite or Sobe.  
Their sugar content or something makes them balance accordingly.

S'mores bars…yum!

Ollie's first fireworks.

Aly wishing she could copy Ollie's sleep habits.

He loves to inch over to the side of his crib.

Aunt Albus came to visit!

That night we also officially started Ollie on solids :)

Watched a childhood favorite, the Lizzie McGuire movie.

Burgers & homemade strawberry ice cream

A few days later dad, mom, Lauren, and Jace flew out to go on a cruise!  
We were able to spend one day with them before they left.

What a cute future mommy.
Getting Ollie's 6 month pictures taken at Target.

He loves looking at himself in that mirror while jumping up and down.

Love this :)
Seth, Ollie, and Ayden.

The beginning of a new stage of life - truly watching my baby 24/7…
He put this carpet strand in his mouth and started choking.  

The tan fam after their cruise

With the souvenirs they brought us.  My favorite part - kinder eggs!

Trying to make "not flat" cookies…didn't really succeed.
The Stephenson family curse continues.

Ripley's Believe It Or Not Odditorium.  So fun!

Mutual making solar ovens for camp certification.

Driving down to Wild Florida to visit Jared.
There is a beautiful southern plantation home on the drive down that I tried capturing.
It is so pretty!  You can kind of see it here. ^^^

The life of taking turns in the temple.

New rug.  Ollie's head was getting a little too much contact with the tile!

Bloomin' Onion from Outback Steakhouse.

Hunter's Creek YW on July 29, 2015.  Love all these girls!

The three YW who completed the 28 day journal challenge.
Way to go, girls!

SOOOOOO good.  My new favorite dessert.

I've been having fun trying new recipes.

The life of an almost seven month old.
I am so grateful I get to stay home with him.  I love being a wife and mother!
