Homemade walker

On Sunday while I was cooking dinner Ethan was playing in the Kitchen underneath the table. When I looked down to check on him this is what I found.
I wasn't able to get my camera fast enough to catch the whole thing but he moved the chair from the table all the way to the other side of the kitchen. We are in trouble!

Adysen turns 2 and Mother's Day

This past weekend was full of family and parties. Saturday we celebrated my niece's 2nd birthday. She is so sweet and lovable. I can hardly believe that she is already two. We bought her this little tent.

She got her very own butterfly cake

Then on Sunday we went to my mom's to celebrate Mother's day. Ethan got to sit in Great Grandma's high chair (which is so old that it's made out of all metal. My Aunt Trudy used this chair when she was a kid). Adysen saw Ethan sitting in the chair so she had to sit in it too.
Then the phone call came. The one that we've been waiting for...Elder Brandon Withers called home yeah! It was great to hear his voice and know that his is doing well. Ethan even tried to say hello

Well it was a great weekend and I'm so happy to be with my family. I love them all so very much and I was so glad to celebrate my first Mother's Day. Being a mom is an amazing blessing and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Thanks to my mom for being such a great example and for being such a great granny to my baby boy.

Photo shoot of my little man

My wonderful friend Brittney took some amazing pictures of Ethan for me. She bought a new fancy camera and was kind enough to practice her photo skills on Ethan. I love every picture she took but here are a few of my favorites

Intoducing Fisher

Last Monday morning the Vidoni family was blessed with another sweet baby boy. Jared's sister had her baby bright and early and they are doing great! Welcome Fisher!

6 months and...

My baby turned 6 months on April 28th and he decided that he was tired of just laying around so he started crawling! Jared and I were teaching our primary class when Ethan just took off across the room for a piece of paper that was on the floor. I was so surprised that I stopped in the middle of my lesson and looked at Jared in shock. Ever since then he hasn't stopped moving instead he's standing up! In just a week my baby went for sitting quietly and playing with the toys in front of him to chasing me around the house and standing up where every he had hold onto and creating lots of messes. My life will never be the same!

I took this video after we came home from church. I didn't think he would be able to crawl at home because we have slippery wood floors and the church had carpet...well he proved me wrong.

And don't worry he loves cords. He seems to find them even when I can't.

Once he started crawling he discovered that the entertainment center is just the right height for him. So most days he pulls everything off this shelf and then tries to stand up.
Then he realized that the bars in his bead work great of standing up...this is usually how we find him after naps and in the morning

And today while I was washing his bottles I looked down to see this

My baby is growing so fast :(

I've been tagged

Melissa Davis has tagged me so here we go...7 things about me

1. I played the saxophone 7th - 10th grade (I know that many of you are laughing right now) and I really enjoyed it. Funny bedroom was right next to the back door of my neighbors and they could always hear me playing/practicing. One day my mom came home and said that she had been talking to the neighbors and they commented on how my playing ability has improved. LOL!

2. I LOVE to scrapbook and lately I have really enjoyed digital scrapbooking. You can see my wonderful pages here

3. Sunday was my very first Mother's day and it was wonderful. Jared made me breakfast and when I came home from church I had a dozen roses and balloons waiting for me. Isn't my husband great!

4. I'm working again! I'm cleaning for a wonderful lady and the best part is that Ethan comes along with me. This is such blessing for us right now because not only can I work we don't have to pay for daycare. Some days are harder then other but for the most part Ethan just plays on the floor or in a jumperoo.

5. Jared proposed to me on September 17th 2005 at Sundance. I had no idea it was coming and to top it all off he wrote me a poem. I would share the poem with you but Jared says it's for my eyes only. Trust me it's a tear jerker. We were then married on November 17th 2005 in the Mount Timpanogos Temple.

6. I LOVE this picture. This was take at my reception. Jared and I had our reception at the Cedar Hills Golf course which has an amazing view. One of my favorite things is looking at city lights, especially when you can see the temple.
7. Jared is officially a graduate of Utah Valley University. He finished his last semester in April and we are so proud of him. He is the first college graduate in his family and mine.

Well there you have it a few things about me :) Now I tag...Jenalee, Becky, Brittney, Kristy, Heather, & Leslie.
