He can do a mini baby push up! Now, I fully understand that people don't care about that the way that Jake and I do but its exciting to see Mikey progress, even if its just a little thing- plus he looks cute. I mean for reals, check out that face. (also, how cute and big are his lips in these pictures?)
On Sunday, the 9th, we blessed the Mikey Boy! It was such a great day for us. It was so fun to see him all dressed up in the little white tux that my mom bought years ago and it was great for us to see so many of our friends in one place. Jake did a wonderful job with the blessing, I am still so proud of him and even though he said he was nervous, I personally don't think anyone could tell. Luckily, Mikey slept through the whole blessing and woke up right after they got back to our seats- excellent. That little boy is just amazing.
The Happy Family!
Here is the best picture of Mikey from the front. I didn't get the pictures I really wanted because there were too many cooks in kitchen so to speak. But you can see the cumberbun and little bowtie. It has the cutest little buttons and lapels. I just love this tux! Oh! And potentially the best part of the tux- the tails. Seriously, adorable. And I love it. And him. And Jake. And I love that we are a little family! I am so grateful for both of them everyday.
Here is an update! Jake He got a new job! He starts tomorrow. I think its going to be way better, mostly because it isn't set hours so that will be easier to work around. The only downfall is what if he gets too busy to work... you know? He is doing school still- graduating in April which is very exciting because that means he will get, at the very least, a full time job so maybe we could afford to move...? Keep your fingers crossed. Jake is pretty great dad and is beyond willing to do anything that means he can spend time with Mikey boy. Meredith I am not up to a lot. I started to work for Primerica which is cool. I am not sure that I am the right personality type for it but we'll see what happens. My wonderful friend Bri might have gotten me a job that I can do from home which would be all kinds of exciting. I am very excited about the fall- its my favorite season :D Also, we got cable so I get to watch the BYU football games. I am very excited, unfortunately this season hasn't been the greatest but I still love to watch. I am constantly online looking for a new apartment but I haven't been able to find any that I think will actually work- plus Jake doesn't want to move. I also stay at home with the Mikey all the time- its so fun and I just love that little kid. Mikey He just had a visit from my dad and step mom and brother. He loves his Uncle James which was fun to see. Today he got blessed (pictures are coming) which was so great. Jake did a great job and Mikey was just a doll in his blessing tux. He has his parents wrapped around his little finger and I am pretty sure he already knows it. He has started to smile which just shows how mischievous he will turn out to be- for example, he'll pee in the tub and then give a big toothless grin and start to laugh. Tsk tsk. He gets his first round of immunizations on friday so wish me luck- I hear its more traumatic for the parents than the baby.
Well, all in all, we are pretty great. Jake is doing school and working hard to provide for us. I am staying at home with Mikey mostly, working parttime for Primerica and just learning how to be a house wife/mom, and Mikey is just ruling the house in every single way. Its a good life. We are pretty happy.
