6-Month Photo Shoot



I might have become addicted to the photos my friend Christina takes. Somehow she manages to make my child and even Matthew and I so photogenic.

As the board mentions above, my child is now 6 months old. He's sitting, blowing raspberries (constantly), scooting around - I tell you, crawling is just around the corner, SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT, and finally sprouting A tooth. He's still pretty small, 25-50% for weight and height, but he's still got a pretty big melon (75%). But with luck he will sprout someday and be tall like his dada. Yep, life is exciting around here. Enjoy the pics.

Ward Librarian Moment

I think I have mentioned before that I am our ward's Librarian. I check scriptures out to mostly youth who've forgotten theirs at home, pictures and chalk to teachers, and other miscellaneous items to other miscellaneous ward members. It's been a pretty fun/low key calling. But today I wanted to share Josie with you. See that cute handwriting down there at the bottom of the page? Josie came in, like other kids to check out a Bible along with a Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants and Pearl of Great Price (conveniently titled a Triple Combination or just "T"). Most everyone just writes down B & T. Josie came in to check her B & T out, but almost forgot to sign them out on my handy sheet. When I called her on it, she dutifully put in her name and then copied what the boy above her wrote. To her defense his B & T really does like 8 + 7. But I found it completely endearing and had to share. 

P.S. Sorry for the weird lines in my photo. I took multiple photos from different angles but they all came out with this dumb effect.
