Eden is 6 months! i can hardly believe it. She weighs 17.6 pounds and is 26.5 inches long. The 79% for weight and the 77% for height. I have no idea where she gets her height genes from.. definitely not from me.

She loves hide and seek and recently started understanding how to play! It is the cutest and she squeals and smiles so big!

She loved being around a lot of people and gets bored with mom all day. She loves church, wedding receptions, and parties because she loves watching people and commotion.

She has eaten all the veggies possible and likes them all. She loves banana's and pears more though :)

She still lovessss bathtime! .... she recently started hating her carseat which is depressing.

She loves watching the tv, and we just barely introduced her to Frozen. She likes the bright colors and music.

She eats 5oz every feeding, sits up on her own, got her first tooth this week, and sleeps like  champ! 10-11 hours a night and three naps a day!

She is generally a very happy baby and smiles at just about everyone.

She doesn't giggle, but squeals instead. It is pretty dang cute.

She shows no signs of crawling but loves to stand and can stand on her own for a few seconds without falling.. pretty impressive!

And she LOVES making noises with her tongue and spits everywhere! Its hilarious.

She has a few names she goes by.. Edee, Ede, and Eden-Weeden---no idea where the last one came from, Am and I just started calling her that.


Eden is 5 months and i absolutely love this stage! Quite frankly i have loved every stage, but this one is so fun! She is the most observant little girl and loves watching everything EVERYONE is doing. she is super social and wants to be in the middle of whatever is going on. She smiles at almost everyone, but has started to show signs of nervousness around strangers or people she doesn't know. She will search the room until she finds Am or I. (I sort of love that.) She still loves bath time and goes absolutely NUTS.. kicking, splashing, and most recently.. trying to roll over! She has swallowed a few gulps of tub water i'm sure! :) She sleeps through the night so well and typically puts herself down around 8:00 and sleeps until 7-8. We feed her before we go to bed at 9:30.. and she eats so well because she is half awake at that time. She is soo good at grabbing things and wants to touch anything and everything around her. She is still such a slobber bucket and is constantly eating her hands and putting things in her mouth. I am just waiting for a tooth to pop through! She stands up so well and rolls over like a champ! I am thinking she will be an early walker/crawler because she is already so busy and shows signs of trying to 'scoot'.. Crazy girl!

The other day we took her to a doctor's appointment for Am's shoulder. I thought "no big deal.. she'll just sit on my lap and hang out". UMM NO. I felt like i was wrestling a toddler the entire appointment! She was grabbing at everything in the office, only wanted to look at her books for .2 seconds, wiggly as ever, and talking and smiling to all the doctors. They loved her! It was hilarious but i can definitely see that in the near future it is going to become hard to take her places because she is so busy!



Happy 4 months baby girl! This month Eden really started to get big! At her 4 months well check she was 15lb 1oz and 25 inches long. She was in the 82nd percentile for weight and 79th for height! She absolutely LOVES bath time. We recently started filling up the big tub with a few inches of water and put her directly in the bath.. and she goes crazy! She splashes, kicks, squeals, and moves around like a little swimmer! It is hilarious. Ammon makes her smile more than anyway, and we have noticed that she typically prefers men over women! She is still sooo slobbery and loves sucking her hands. She is starting to grab things with her hands really well, and can roll from side to side. She discovered her toes this month too! I was so excited about that! While we were at lake powell, i looked over one morning and she had both feet in her little hands... I about died i was so excited. She loves standing up and has really strong legs and great balance. She smiles at just about everyone and is the happiest babe around. I love her so much! This month she was more inconsistent with sleeping through the night, but i assume it's because she has grown so much.

My favorite face she makes while she sleeps


Here are some things about Eden at the 3 month mark. (go Haley!... only two months behind)

Eden is obsessed with sucking on her hands! She can roll from side to side.. just not all the way over yet. She loves being swaddled before bedtime. She loves her stroller and being on-the-go. She loves the baby mobile above her bed and watching it spin around. She recently discovered herself in the mirror above her carseat and stares at herself the whole  car ride. She is a constant slobbery mess! I have never seen so much drool in my life. She always has lint in her toes and her dad calls her 'the lint factory'. She is OBSESSED with bathtime and likes taking naps on mom and dad's bed. We have been working on her torticollis stretches and she hates it! She is getting a little more even though and will look to the left side a lot more frequently.

This month eden got to visit Jackson Hole! She was so good for the 5 hour drive and we had so much fun together hiking the Tetons. Eden was also blessed this month, which was an amazing day! I will have to do a separate post for that whole day.


Baby cleavage! haha! So cute
the left picture is one of my absolute favorites.

Eden 2 Months!

Eden is growing up so quickly it is hard to stay on top of this blog! Here is her two month update:

Eden is two months! She still wears Newborn sizes and has just barely started fitting into her 0-3 month clothes.

She loves:

  • Sticking out her tongue
  • Blowing bubbles (SO MUCH SLOBBER!)
  • bath time-- she kicks her feet like crazy!
  • laying in her crib and watching her mobile
  • smiling at mom and dad.. SUCH a little cheezer :)
  • Kicks her legs when she is excited
  • having her hair brushed
  • balancing her head and looking outward when being held
  • listening to music! Her favorites are Disney and toddler pandora!
Eden is so funny and her personality is just starting to come through. We sure love this little babe!

Happy 3 Years!

At the end of July, Ammon and I got to celebrate our 3 year anniversary! We decided to have our first post-Eden date night and left our cute babe with Ammon's sister Annie. We headed up to Park City to the Olympic Park.. waited in line for a good solid hour and then had the time of our lives riding the Roller Coaster down the mountain. I don't think I have ever laughed that hard! We were 'that' couple that rode together on a single cart.. and I am so glad we did! We were both dying laughing the whole way down! .. Also the guy told us it was smart to go together because we would go faster.. and that we did!

We then headed over to Main Street to eat dinner. We ate at Bandits, and BBQ restaurant and topped off dinner with a visit to Cows. It was so fun to be with Ammon! I think we had both forgotten what it was like to be out together!

Three years seems like a long time, but it flew by so quickly! I am so grateful for my marriage to Ammon.. he is just the best. He makes me so happy and fills my heart with so much happiness.
