Cooped Up

Right after I had the baby, I had those lovely raging hormones and this crazy cooped up in the house all day feeling.. I had to get out! Jon took me to the Nelson cabin to get away. It was just what the Dr. ordered, we just ate food, watched movies and stayed cozy, and I came back feeling like not so crazy of a person!

Photo Shoot

Easton was a champ for his photo shoot, I think the pictures of him turned out fantastic!

Cookie's First Haircut

It has been 2 years and seriously not a single strand of hair has ever been cut from Cookie's head, but enough was enough! My mom was in town and we decided that Cookie needed some bangs, due to the fact that her hair kept falling into her eyes. Cookie was not happy about sitting still for the .2 seconds it took to cut her bangs, but she survived! Don't worry though she still has the mullet in the back!

Life at Home

These are just some pictures from our first week of being at home with the new babe. My parents were here, we called my dad the baby whisperer.. cause Easton just snuggled with him all day! Cookie thought it was a grand idea for her to try out all the baby equipment also! Baby number 2 is an adjustment but I guess all his cuteness makes it worth it!

Introducing.. Easton Tate Cook

Finally I am here blogging about our newest addition!
Easton Tate Cook was born Nov. 22nd at 8:11, weighing in at 8lbs. .04 oz., and 20 inches long. This little guy is a good baby, who loves to be snuggled and can't stop eating!! WE love him.. and surprisingly so does Brooklyn!

The Big 2!

My sweet girl turned 2 today.. can you even believe it, cause I can't. She brings so much joy into our home and I try and treasure every moment. Today was perfect, she slept in, woke up happy and snuggled with me in the bed watching a show for about an hour. Then we made a big breakfast, got ready for the day and she went to play group. After play group we went to lunch, and got a few treasures for her birthday. The Harmon's came over a little later for pizza dinner and cupcakes. All of the boys got pink princess necklaces as they came in the door.. which they all appeased me and wore! It was a great celebration, Happy Birthday Brooklyn!

Pregnancy Belly

The pregnancy belly card did not pull through for me today my friends.. I know can you believe it? I used to think once people could tell you were pregnant you could get away with anything! Today however I got pulled over by a motorcycle cop. I shifted my weight over to the window side of things to show off that big belly trying to push it out even further then it already is. I really couldn't think what I had done wrong, but I thought for sure once he saw this big belly I would be home free. Turns out my registration is expired and so was my grace month period =( I really had no idea and then tried to blame it on pregnancy brain haha.. sadly to say I still came home with a ticket, but at least he didn't say anything about my Utah License.. I have still not switched over to Colorado yet!

Halloween Festivities

I am a little sad to see Halloween season be over, I really love all the fun festivities associated with this season, mostly the yummy treats you get to make.. and eat!
For the ward party Jon went as the Chef, and I was the bun in the oven.. our little Brooklyn was the ladybug! We had a great time and I must say love that we have a kid that can win us a cake on the cake walk!

Here we are for Halloween night, we had yummy soup inside of a spider, along with some treats and then we headed out to Trick or Treat! Brooklyn was all over it, she maneuvered her way up through the kids to the front of the line, got the treats and ran with dad to the next house.. sometimes if she was lucky she could get her hand inside the bowl and grab a handful.. that's my girl right!

Mr. Potato Head Pumpkin

Cookie and I made a Mister Potato Head pumpkin this year, it was really fun because she could actually help and put all the parts into the pumpkin.. man she is growing up too fast!

Pumpkin Carving

Jon and I hosted pumpkin carving at our house this year, we had everyone out of the deck, the bonfire going, and yummy treats. We had about 12 families come which made it really fun.. next year we are going to have to judge the pumpkins!Here is Cookie in motion dancing to the music

Pumpkin Patch

We went to the local pumpkin patch this past week, the first attempt to go Cookie fell asleep right as we pulled up.. luckily the second attempt was successful. Cookie loved it, there were lots of animals, and a big slide, she was really unsure about the jumpy thing, and she refused to be carried through the corn-maze.. man she is stubborn!

Just Funny Stuff

I know I have been posting a lot of just random Cookie stuff but it's just too funny not to document.

I have a few Cookie approved drawers in the kitchen that I let her get into and I don't have to worry about it. Lately in the Tupperware drawer she gets them out and puts them on her feet and walks all around the house laughing thinking she is so funny!

Unfortunately Cookie has also learned how to get into the food cupboard, and has discovered that Lucky Charms have the most yummy marshmallows.. this is how I found her one morning, and almost all the marshmallows are gone!!Hide and Seek has becoming a new favorite game, Cookie loves to hide.. but then she gets really cozy and wants to stay there!
