It was kaiizens first Christmas and he loved it! He is learning new words slowly and his newest one is "whats that"... but really just comes out "that that" and thats what he kept saying all day. We woke him up around 7 because Trent and I couldn't sleep anymore (we were to excited for kaiizen.) we walk down the stairs and he was so tired he didn't want to open his eyes until he saw the tree and the "that that" started.

 He got a bike from santa and loved it!


We also had our first Christmas away from my family which was a little different but we started to build our own traditions which was nice. We opened Christmas pjs on Christmas eve and we read a Christmas book. kaiizen loved it
This is kaiizen in his Christmas day outfit eating a candy cane. It was a great Christmas, we had trents family over for Christmas dinner( I took lots of pictures ill post them hopefully by tonight) and we built a lot of different traditions for our little family.

kaiizen is 7 months!

I know 2 blogs in one day, but really I couldn't help myself kaiizen is the cutest thing and I just had to share!..


Kaiizen turned 7 months old on the 24th, our anniversary. The 24th just seems to be our number, that was the day we went on our first date, the day we got married, and the day we had kaiizen:)
7 months has got to be one of the best months, because he has been a blast. He goes goes goes..

 As we were moving in kaiizen was getting into everything! he loved the boxes. We found this huge box he could climb through and he loved it.
 The first time kaiizen pulled himself up on anything was last week. It was a box left around the house of coarse. a couple of times of him pulling himself up and he thought he was a pro, he is now pushing the box/ objects he pulls himself up on and making himself walk. scary!:S
Really.. can I just say I think he is the cutest kid in the world.
Kaiizen and daddy. He always cuddles and loves on trent, but any time I pick him up he is to cool for me.

 We went to Vegas this weekend with my family. It was a blast. Kaiizen loves them. Becky thought it would be a good idea to have him ride on her shoulders.... Kaiizen loved it along with loved her hair. He was pulling and eating it! haha

 So Im in the kitchen making lunch and I walk in to the living room and there is kaiizen crawling up the stairs! ahhh

Kaiizen loves Niko so much.. Niko on the other hand were not to sure about he runs from Kaiizen. I think it might be because Kaiizen pulls his hair.

Picture over load, sorry but hes pretty adorable. Hes grown so much in just a short 2 months. He crawls and pulls himself every where hes actually pretty fast. He runs in his walking toy wall chasing Niko. He loves being naked, really who wouldn't in St. George's heat. Hes such a fun little boy and loves to go. Hes so happy and smiley and isn't scared of anyone. In fact this stranger asked if he wanted to come to her and he just went right into her arms before I could stop him. I cant wait to see how much more he grows in the next few months. We love him:)

The Best 2 Years

Trenton and I have been together for 2 year. Normally you would say I cant believe its already been 2 years!  But I would have to say I cant believe its ONLY been 2 years! :) in a good way of course. Cant believe we have done all this in just a short 2 years...

 The start of it all

We Bought Our first house 6 Months after being married. We renovated the whole house and made it Our own. It was a lot of work but so worth it. We also got Niko the same day we got the keys to our house. Hes a handful but we love him to death! 

 We got pregnant with Our wonderful kaiizen 9 months into being married. We were married for a little over a year and a half when I had him. Hes the best thing that's ever happened to us. 

Just last month we sold our House and bought a new one! what an adventure that has been.We also renovated the whole house, I'm hoping to have pictures up Monday but we will see because we are not done.
Its Crazy to think that in only 2 years we have done all that, not including all the extra things. Like buying our first new car, staying up all night with a baby, ect. And through it all Ive just fell more and more in love with this guy... I will leave it at that were not really the mushy gushy type.:)

Not the best picture in the world but it was like 12:00am
Lastly  for our anniversary we went out to dinner at this place in Vegas called Brio (its pretty dang good) and saw Mystere by Cirque Du Soleil. We hadn't been away from kaiizen that long before and it was a little weird but we had a lot of fun.

Out with the old in with the new

Trent and I have been living in this house for a little over a year and we have been working on it the whole time. Every couple weeks Trent had a new idea and something else to fix. Finally we got down to the paint and were finishing up everything Trent had on his long list. with just the hallway left to paint and our house starting to feel like home Trent came up with a idea. Lets sale the house. ahhhhh I wasn't sure I was ready for that it was a lot of work and I had finally fell in love with the house.
Here's the before and after:


After thinking about it he was right. It was the perfect time to sell and we really had grown out of the house Niko had no where to go because our fence wasn't high enough and the neighborhood wasn't a great place for Kaiizen to grow up.
Well when Trent wants to do something and I agree he goes for it and gets it done. He decided it was time for us to sell the house and then next day he called the realtor. The realtor came out and it was ready to be listed that day around 2. Little did we know the roller coaster we just got on.
At 5 that day the realtor called he had a showing... and 10 mins later another call another showing. by the end of the day we had 6 showings and a offer coming in. We sold our house the next morning in less then 24 hours. I wasn't ready for that. but whats done was done and we had to find a house! about a week and a half later we found the one!(pictures and more info in a few more weeks)
well a couple of days later our offer on our house fell through. We had to find a new buyer. This was really frustrating because the first offer was above the asking price and we thought we could never get that same offer and who new how long it would take to even get a offer.
Well it went back on the market and 2 days later went back off after 2 offers in one day, we had our house under contract again. Once again over the asking price!
With just a week and a half left in this house its pretty much a done deal. Were starting to pack and get everything together. Its bitter sweet its sad to leave our first home after all the time, work and money we have spent in it and all the firsts we have had in it. But there will be more first in the next one and more time, work and of course money:).

Wow time has flied, and I have been a slacker on blogging. Kaiizen has grown so much in the passed 2 months hes like a different baby. Hes such a happy baby and he loves to play and laugh. My last post talked about his tummy troubles and how he was going to a specialist. Come to find out he is allergic to milk and soy... crazy right! We then got put on to a special (expensive) formula that was still milk based but was broken down over several days. It worked great! the doctor said after a couple months try a different formula and see if there is a change so here we are 2 months later and we are trying a new formula. Surprisingly its working! We hope nothing changes because as great as the other formula is it cost us about 240 dollars a month:S. Other then the tummy troubles hes growing great hes in the 73% and is a big boy!
There has been a lot of first these passed 2 months. He now rolls over front to back and back to front like a pro. Hes hard to change because all he wants to do is roll and play 
We started feeding him rice cereal and he didn't love it at first. So we mixed in a little banana baby food and he now loves it!

He went swimming for the first time when he was 3 months old. He loved it! he was a little scared at but after a few mins he settled down. He didn't love his float toy he would rather be in our arms. He kicks his little legs and plays its adorable!

He has full on conversations with you that could go on for hours with the bla bla and the high pitch screams. Almost every day Trent comes home from work, he takes kaiizen and goes in to our room and lays on the bed. I'm in the kitchen and can hear the two of them just talking away telling each other about there day:)

kaiizen celebrated his first 4th of July. We didn't do much just hang out with family and had a bbq. He had a lot of fun with every one he loves his nieces and nephews because they talk and play with him a lot. By the end of the day he was pooped and slept very good that night.
Hes growing so fast its crazy almost every day he does something new, like pushing himself around in a circle to find his toys or playing with niko ( he loves niko). Hes changing and growing and we love him more and more every day!
