I am 10 months old!

10 Months.

My Nixon James will be 10 months old tomorrow! He is so much fun and is such a joy in our lives! He has such a cute personality and always know how to make you laugh! He makes friends with everyone everywhere we go. He is such a smart little boy and mimics different sounds we make. He knows what ba-ba (bottle) and bye bye means. He loves when I read books to him and he loves when I crawl around on the floor with him and chase him around. He thinks is so funny and usually does a few face plants while trying to get away from me. He also loves when his Daddy plays the tickle game with him! It's so cute to watch. I just love my boys:)

Yesterday morning I put him in his saucer to watch some cartoons and this is how I found him!

This little boy is so silly! So you know how most kids have a favorite blanky or stuff animal? Well this little boy has a favorite block! It goes almost everywhere with him. The tub, his crib, church, the car.. He also likes to bang it on things like our glass coffee table... He even crawls while holding it in one hand. I'm quite inpressed with how long he carries it around with him. I can always hear him when he's crawling around on the tile!

I just love my little family!:)

This week I have been in a very creative mood. So I decided to paint our master bedroom. I lined the wall with white contact paper, you know the stuff that people use to line their drawers with, and then I painted over it. I made sure to overlap the contact paper so that no paint would seep through onto the wall. It was pretty easy and I am very pleased with the outcome! Its amazing what a little color can do to a room.

A couple weeks ago I took some pictures of my cute little niece Haiven Rae. You can see more pictures of her on my photography blog!

Valentines Day!

I love love, I love being in love..

I hope everyone had a fabulous Valentines Day!!!!
For our Valentines Day we went to the Cheesecake Factory for a delicious lunch! Its one of our favorite places to eat! We celebrated our first Valentines together on our honeymoon in Hawaii at the Cheesecake Factory. We waited to be seated for two hours! But the wait ended up being well worth it.
I made Ev a Valentines dinner while Nixon was so good to take a nice 3 hour nap. It turned our really cute. I made some cupcakes for desert and Evan surprised me with a delicious ice cream oreo cake!
We had a great Valentines day!! I'm so grateful for my boys and I'm so blessed to have them! They mean the world to me! I am one lucky girl!

Our 1st Valentines Day together.

First and last Valentines kiss! ;)

I LOVE....

I LOVE to decorate! I have been thinking a lot of being an Interior Designer. I've taken a class in the past and have helped with decorating a house for the Parade of Homes and I absolutely love it! But for now I will just keep decorating my own home.
So on days when I am looking for something to do I aways find myself changing my furniture around or finding more ways to improve my apt. So yesterday I did our bathroom. I found some old frames and painted them black and put some pictures of Dandelions in them. And also did a painting to match with the color scheme. It was fun! I haven't painted for awhile and I really have missed it! I seriously can't wait until we can get into our own home and I can paint and decorate it how ever I want!

Mr. Nix got his third tooth and is working on his fourth! Look at that cute smile!! Oh and he loves his baths again! Thank goodness

Here's to 2 years!

For time and all Eternity.

Here we are on our 1 year Anniversary.

And this look on my face explains my thoughts and feelings about Ev's hair..... yeah.. never again.

Happy 2 year Anniversary to us! It's so crazy that is has already been 2 years! I love this young man is this picture. He works so hard for our family and is happy to do so. We have come along way and continue to grow closer as a couple. I am so blessed to have him in my life and I am so happy and excited to have him forever!

For our Anniversary, Evan's parents watched little Nixon for us while we went shopping and got some dinner. Our plan was to go to the Cheesecake factory, but when we got there, there was a one hour wait! So instead we went to the Olive Garden.

Last year for our 1 year Anniversary we bought Nix a little outfit. So I thought it would be fun to get one for Jovi too!

I also made Ev some of his favorite cookies! I must add they were very yummy!

Nixon update.

This cute little boys has been sick this past week:( He's had a runny nose, fever and a bad cough. The only good thing about this is he's been really cuddly and lets me rock him and he falls asleep in my arms, which I love:) I hope you get better soon my baby boy!
