Wooden Spoon

Yes, we use the wooden spoon with our child. But....not on his little behind of course!! He's cutting his 2nd tooth this WEEK, so he's busy chewing on things that will get that second one thru! He's really been good with far! (knock on wood) It's only been the past few days that he's started to get a little fussy. He wakes up sometimes at night and either cries or just fusses himself back to sleep. We just got teething tablets today, for if he gets worse, but so far, we've been good! Our little boy is growing too fast....two teeth already!! Even with teething though...he's an absolute charmer ;)

More spring fun...

Here are pictures from this past week, in random order of course! It was sooo nice to have dad here for a few days! He got out and away from the office, I got a little break from being 24/7 mommy, and Coy got to know his Grandpa Krisher pretty well. They are great buddies already! Thanks so much dad, it was nice and fun! :)

Logan and Coy being mischevious, and making a mess.

Checkin out the chickens with Grandpa!

He was sitting, facing away from the basket to start off with. Mr. Mobile! Think he wants to "help" like cousin Cole? ;) Which he pretty much already does though. He can utterly destroy a neatly folded basket of clothes in record time!

He LOVES drinking from big cups, though he nearly drowns himself!

He sure loves his Grandpa!

Our sweet almost 7 month old!

His new "thing" is hanging upside down...what a goof!

Here's Coy's first carrot of the year. Obviously left over/ignored from last years garden, and decided to grow again? Anyway...he wasn't TOO impressed with it.

Watchin snowmobile videos. Oooooo Aaaaaah


It's not a done deal yet, but we sure hope it all goes thru!

I'll post a few more pictures from when dad was here a bit later. BUT....had to shout this first :)

Fun with Grandpa!

As you can see, Coy is LOVING having Grandpa around, who flew in Tuesday night. Yesterday was such a gorgeous day that we had a picnic and took a little hike up the Rattlesnake, which was absolutely beautiful! (of course we both forgot cameras, when we really needed them) Today the weather was not so nice, and we just hung out and Logan and Dad went to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the brand new HUGE Triple W dealership.

(who else thinks this is YouTube worthy???)

Yup, we are breakin out the sunglasses!
It's HOT out today!
I have found myself a really buggy cold, so i was inside all morning, dreaming of the sun outside. I went out to feed the chickens and get eggs, and I got HOT! As soon as Coy wakes up from his nap, we will be hittin the road in the stroller! :)
(p.s. here you can see Coy's new thing: stickin out his tongue!)

Warm, Fun Weekend!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the weather we've had this weekend....AND the company too! :) Hugh and Carmen came yesterday, and we went to the "carriwhistle" (as Kadyn called it) and Dragon Hallow. Coy had so much fun just watching the carrousel go round and round, that I thought we might try a ride. And he sure loved it! :) Im not sure if it was actually the ride, or that he had a pole so close to him that he didn't have to reach to get his mouth on it. Ick! :) Trenton and Kadyn were such a big help in checking on the chickens and gathering their eggs, every few hours ;) It was perfect for baseball too! Hugh and Carmen also brought some of their studion equipment and took some really awesome pictures! Thank's guys for coming (finally...teehee) and making such a fun weekend!

The Hard Workin Farm Boy Song

As many of you know, Logan is (and was for a long time) on the Rosetta Stone ad, claiming "He was just a hard working famy boy. She was an Italian supermodel. He knew he only had one chance to impress her" The ad is in SkyMall, National Geographic, Popular Mechanics....I'm sure you've all seen it, it's everywhere.
Here is a cute song to go along with it :)

To a little farmer...

We hope that you have a super fun day, eat a really yummy cake
and get lots of "loader" toys!

Coy's Reeseter Bunny...

Yes, it is Reeses and an easter bunny. No, he didn't eat it...but his parents did :)
We had a nice Sunday, with a good (but tiny) meeting, gorgeous weather, a delicious dinner at Ashley William's house, and finishing up the day with a long walk!
Did you know the "The Lorax" by Dr. Suess was banned in MN years ago? To find more of our favorite books that were once banned (like Alice in Wonderland! ??), and WHY go here. It's quite entertaining!

6 month stats

At Coy's well-check appt on Monday, he weighed

18 lbs 12 0z & is 26.5 inches long!

Pretty much like any baby/child....he likes anything that is NOT a toy. Especially a cell phone!!

This is where Coy was after protesting a nap. To start, he's at the foot of the bed, on his tummy. But as you can see, he eventually migrated and gave up. I thought it was so cute how he's holding the hand of his sleep sheep :)

Today Coy wore this cuuuute outfit from Great Grandma Pheifer. I was waiting for it to fit him, and now it does and I love it! So thank you again Grandma! :)

It was SUCH a nice day out today! When we got home from gospel meeting we went for a walk to the park. Logan said that he's not quite "park material" yet, because all he did was sleep in his stroller, and when he did wake up...was quite lazy. that picture of me is not at all flattering, but Coy looks quite pleasant!

p.s. right now...Coy is almost rolling from his back to his tummy. he's trying VERY hard...maybe a little more grunting will help?

the half birthay boy...

Coy was sittin up in his boppy and fell over, and eventually (somehow) got his feet stuck under the chair. He looks like he's about to crawl, with his butt up and all! :)

Our little bouncy man loves being in his bouncer!

Yummy Carrot!

Here is 6 month old Coy, with the half birthday present bull daddy got him!
