Since Darrell has to work on the Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Steven and I ventured off to go bowling with some of Steven's cousins, my mom and my sister. Steven had never been bowling before, but he definitely soon became a BIG fan! HE LOVED IT!!!
He loved being able to push the ball down the ramp...
Then he would watch in awe for a minute, befor pushing the ramp down the bowling lane... He had the push with the palm technique which served him well
Here is a little video...although not that exciting...
This afternoon, I was just playing with Steven (what else is new?:) ) As we were playing, I just had this overwhelming feeling of being blessed! I am so blessed to have such a special little guy to spend each and every day with all the time! I definitely know the Lord sent him to our family right when we needed him, and I absolutely would not trade any of my "planned dreams" that were on my list before he was born. I'm perfectly content that instead of getting a degree before having kids, I got Steven and then the degree. I'm thankful for the gospel to help me know that being a wife and mother are the reason why I am here, and I only know it's going to get better every single day!
In case I don't put enough pictures of this cute little guy on here, here are some more for you!
I got this amazing exercise ball for Christmas, and Steven used to be afraid of it, but now he LOVES it!Playing with daddy!
I got a bunch of clothes from my sis-in-laws when Steven was born, so today I went through starting to find 18 month clothes, so I can know what I need to start buying on clearance sales. He thought it would be great to dress himself and have a party!
These brown eyes are basically irresistable!
Looking at the window after Daddy went to Elders Quorum meeting. He was trying to find him.
Steven and I have so much fun all the time being here at home. The only way I can get him to smile at the camera is if I ask him to show me his teeth. Then we get a cute cute cheeser smile!
This morning, he was sort of "complaining whining" so i went in to see what was the matter. When I went in his room, he smiled up at me, but didn't stand up like he usually does....and I soon discovered why. He thought it might be fun to see just how skinny his legs are and fit them into one pajama leg.
Close-up cuteness...pretend his cheeks are not dabbled with eczema and that there is not a huge drool drip on his chin :)
