More Magazines

I LOVE magazines. It's so fun to get something in the mail other than bills. I am extremely saddened that my BURDA subscription ran out...but to cheer me up more $5 magazines!

Four Months




Our Beckster man continues to grow at a rapid pace.
Newest Stats:
26 3/4 inches (97th percentile!)
15 pounds 13 ounces (75th percentile)

Some new things about Little Man:
*chews on EVERYTHING! I thought this phase started later
*such a happy baby (I can't say this enough I guess) - he is smiling all the time
*new sounds every week - grunting, growling, and spitting
*drools more than ever - we need more bibs
*loves taking baths alone in the big bath tub
*does "crunches" with his hands behind his head
*tries to fit his entire fist in his mouth
*won't ever take his hands out of his mouth
*sleeping very good now (wakes up once a night to eat) because he sleeps in his carseat overnight
*interacting more - laughing and giggling and playing - we love it!

Thanksgiving And Stuff...

I just made this pie from Pioneer Woman for a birthday party this week. So easy (I only attempt easy recipes!) and it got quite a few rave reviews. I will say that I had major anxiety that someone was going to tell me they got food poisoning from it and threw up all night (it has raw eggs in it)...but other than that I recommend it.

We leave tomorrow for Sunvalley, Idaho and I just checked the weather forecast. 30's and 40's...brrr! Goodbye mild Bay Area weather. I had to unpack the winter coats and boots. I hate packing!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

My Morning Person

Just a short video of our goofy baby. It makes me smile. Especially the last 10 seconds.

A Steal of a Deal


Cooking Light is only $5 for a year subscription on Amazon.com until Saturday at midnight. Maybe this will give me the motivation to finally lose those last 8 pounds of baby weight!

My New {girly and crafty} Blog

I started another blog...nothing fancy...just a place to store tutorials I want to try. And hopefully I'll get around to writing a few tutorials of my own someday. Anyway...if you'd like to see what inspires me...

http://howtomakelovelythings.blogspot.com/

Be sure to check out the very first post...the advent calendar. I love it! I need to get started ASAP so I can get done in time for Christmas.

Beck And Fritz

Brooke came to visit Friday and brought sweet little Fritz. Fritz is exactly two months younger than Beckham, but much smaller (he was born 5 weeks premature). Beckham looked enormous next to teeny little Fritz, so we let Beckham hold his buddy Fritz.
I love the second picture...they both look miserable.

John Deere Playmat

Melanie gave us a playmat, and ever since Beckham learned to grab things (and hold on!) this month he loves to play with it. He will pull the whole thing over on himself. Often if you pick him up from the mat he brings it with him.

"I'm not letting go of this thing!!"

My First Halloween


Halloween was so fun. Beckham was a good sport in his ridiculously hot itchy costume...he never cried. Love that easy going kid!
At the ward party we were all a family of skunks. I could have made us ears or something a little more fancy...but after making Beck's costume I was sick of sewing with fur! And definitely sick of vacuuming up fur.
Beck loves loves to stand. He has loved it since he was a month old. If he's cranky and every basic need has been met...you can just assume he wants to stand and it cheers him right up.


I think he looks hilarious in the stroller with his huge tail behind him taking up all the room.
He got all wore out! What a trooper.
