04.26.10 ~ Connor's Crazy Quirk ...

I was getting ready to go sing at a performance my ward was putting on, and I heard Connor starting to cry every time I did this one particular warm-up exercise. Nate and I just had to get it on tape because we think it's hilarious that he cries every time I do this one warm-up exercise ... even if he's happy and playing with Daddy. It's hilarious ...

And I promise that Connor loves songs that I sing to him! He just isn't a fan of the mi-me-ma-mo-mu's I guess ...

04.11.10 ~ Nate's Mistake ...

Notice anything wrong in this picture? ...


So on Sunday morning while Nate was getting ready for church, he was trimming his eyebrows, when all of a sudden his clippers contraption went psycho on him. I guess the blades fell on it mid-through his grooming. As a result, he's now got one and a half eyebrows left. I sure adore my husband though - we had a good laugh from it all and he has been quite the trooper with dealing with this unfortunate mishap. What a guy ...

04.10.10 ~ Connor's First Nuggets Game ...

So we attempted to take Connor to experience a NBA basketball game. It started out okay, until in the beginning of the second quarter the "bird man" on the Denver Nuggets team made a dunk and the crowd went WILD. He just started bawling, and from then on, every time the crowd cheered, he cried. So Connor and I spent the rest of the game out by the concessions, watching the game on TV where it was a lot more quieter and more of Connor's style. We'll have to take him back to a game when he's older though - when his precious eardrums can handle the noise. He looked just so darn cute! He sure got a TON of compliments out in the hallway - everyone that walked by practically had to stop and smile or just vocalize how adorable he was...






"Uh, I'm not so sure about this Mom..."

04.08.10 ~ Connor at 7 Months Old ...

So Connor is now 7 months old and is ready to conquer the world! He is so solid and strong, happy, and even occasionally "grunts" like a man! He is very active now, and Nate and I get very tired when it comes to holding him. He is constantly turning, twisting, turning sideways, arching, etc. He sits up on his own and is starting to crawl ... backwards. It's hilarious. See for yourself ...



We now find Connor usually on his stomach when he's sleeping or just playing in his crib. He loves to be on his tummy ...

Here's a video of Connor playing with his toys - he loves pulling the toys out of the toy box all on his own now. He sits up so well ...



He always has to "feel" everything with his mouth, so most pictures I take he's got something in it ...

Now that Connor has two teeth on the bottom of his mouth, I thought I'd upgrade to a baby toothbrush and some Orajel toothpaste. He sure loves brushing his teeth ...

He loves bath time - even more so now that he is learning how to splash in the water ...



Can't leave him alone on the couch anymore ... he rolls and scoots all over the place ...

... very active baby ... We love you Connor!

04.06.10 ~ Spring ...

Spring is slowly inching in, and I try to take advantage of any warm Spring day that I can (you never know with Colorado weather). Taking Connor on walks has been one of my favorite things to do now that I'm a mom. We even splurged quite a bit early and got Connor a BOB Revolution jogging stroller for his birthday. That way, I can enjoy walking and running with him this summer and on all our trips we have planned. Connor loves the stroller too, as you can see ...

04.04.10 ~ Easter Celebrations ...

We started out by dying our Easter eggs a few days before Sunday. Nate and I went over to dye eggs with the rest of the Jorgensen family ...

Connor even got to join in the fun ... from afar ... the "bumbo" chair came in very handy that night ...

Connor had so much fun with Auntie Kristen and Auntie Aislinn ...

Connor loves to stay up past bedtime to dye Easter eggs! ...

********************************************************

On Easter Sunday, we watched morning conference at home, and then headed over to Grandma and Grandpa Jorgensen's to celebrate with the rest of the Jorgensen family. We ate dinner, did an Easter egg hunt, and then watched afternoon conference together. It was a lovely Spring day and General Conference was absolutely amazing. I felt so uplifted ...

My mother-in-law always makes such wonderful meals and makes it very festive with her beautiful decor ... dinner was mmm mmm good ...

After we ate our fabulous Easter dinner in-between morning and afternoon conference, we went outside to find some eggs ...

So the Jorgensen tradition - now that we are all older (except for Connor) - is go huntin' for some Easter eggs filled with dollar bills in them. So I had Nate carry Connor around and collect our eggs - we found a woppin' 21 dollars total! ...




My little Easter bunny ...

Getting ready to go egg-hunting ... As you can see, Connor is definitely excited ...

Aislinn and Nate goin' at it - trying to get as many Easter eggs as they can ...

Thanks Grandma Jorgensen for the Easter treats!



Happy Easter to everyone!

04.03.10 ~ Dog-Sitting ...

I have really enjoyed dog-sitting lately. I watched two different dogs, back to back, and it was such a joy to have a little dog around to play with. Nate and Connor both loved playing with them as well. Every time I would ask Connor, "what does a doggy say?" and I would go "ruff! ruff!" - Connor would light up with a huge smile. It was such a blast ... makes me want a dog of our own ... definitely one day.


Buddy - so obedient and playful - awesome dog!



Cinder - cutest, cuddliest dog ever!
