Wow 2 in one day

Yep that's right 2 post's in one day. This one is all about our Knox. He's 9 month's old already! Times flown by. These are Knox 9 month's accomplishments.................

He is up to 6 teeth. He was 3 months when he got his first 2 and had to wait another 5 long months for the other 4 to show up.

He eats his cereal mixed with various types of vege's and fruit. He will eat till we quit feeding him. He loves his food. Per feeding (which we do twice a day) he eats 1/4c up to 1/2c of food.

He crawls like a sun of a gun and loves to sit up then as quick as he can get back on his knee's and crawl away. I think he's figured out he has to be fast with his older brother flying around.

He pulls himself up on furniture and walks around everything, I'm holding out on giving him the walking toy's cause he's to young to walk but I'm sure he could if i just showed him how.

His Most favorite thing to do is to push Blazes Big car's around the house, Or little car's or anything that will push or roll. He has been known to push the wipes around the house if there are no cars available.

He is not a good napper that's for sure. Sometimes he'll take a morning nap but not all the time. Afternoon Nap's he does have but if he's in his own bed he will only sleep for about a hour if he's beside me in our bed he'll sleep for 3, so i am forced in to having afternoon naps(hehe).

Most night's he sleep's through the night. If he does wake up it's usual only once.

And he just learned how to clap.

He is a happy baby and a pleasant baby to have. We don't really hear from him and he can be to the other side of the house before anyone notices he's gone. He loves Playing with his Big Brother. He will sit and laugh at Blaze run around him for hour's.





We are so luck to have him in our family!

A Love Story

Today has been a great day. Dad's been over visiting while Mom's in Cardston. Which was a great switch since Mom took Paris with her. Mom called today and said Paris is having a great time. Mom said they went over to see Maggie (Foxx's Sister) and Paris had so much fun. They went to go and Paris Said her goodbye's go Maggie, Mom told her to say good bye to Marvelle and Cliff and Paris replied "but i don't Care about them" Mom told her it was polite so she said goodbye.

Brody's had a great day. He got his chores done early and has been playing with a friend from down the street. He found a friend in grade 2 that has the same love of Micheal Jackson as our Brody does. They are a perfect match.

Blaze has kept himself Busy in the back yard today. The whole garden is mud. Well early this afternoon he kind got bored and wandered into the front yard, I told him he had to stay in the backyard, But he just could not, so i went out and found him a lady bug...............

He loved this lady bug he held it, Giggled as it walked up and down his arm. He was in love. He packed the trunk of his wheel's with dirt and a car for the Ladybug to hang out in.
About 10 min later he came to the door with the lady bug between his fingers ..........
"Mom It Broke"

Wow Monday is the last update I've made. I don't think I've gone that long without updating unless i was having a baby. I went and picked up my camera today so i feel whole once again.

Wednesday there was a huge snowstorm. It was wet and heavy. It hit from Lloyd down the side of Alberta and then through Southern Alberta. We woke up about 2:30am to crying Blazer....... So i got up flipped on the light as i walked by but there was no light so i flipped on the light in the basement, no light. (he's scared of the dark). So there was no night light hence him waking up and ended up in our bed. Brody is also not a fan of the dark so he ended up in our room on the floor. About a hour later Paris woke up with a bad dream and ended up in our room. Ironically enough Knox slept though the night that night.

So we went without power for 19 hours! How did we do it? I read everyone of my magazines from front to back, I thought a book should always be in your 72hour kit. The kid's played outside then they got on there swimming suits and had a hot tub (bath). We played card's, It was OK till it started getting later and later and we still had no power and everyone else in town did. I kept calling Fortis about our power and they pretty much said we should go somewhere else for the night cause we have a low chance of getting power. Well that did not stop me from trying, I happened to be looking out the window at about 7:30 and saw a fortis truck drive by so i threw on my shoes and ran out and waited on the side of the road for it to come back. Soon a few other's were out with me. Soon the poor Fortis Man came back and we flagged him down, Begged him to just try putting the transformers up, He said if there is any power lines down from us to the golf course it was just going to pop again, But with a little persistence he tryed and they popped and so i figured that was it, so we went inside to start packing up the kid's to head to Wolsey's (my parents still had no heat or anything). We'll i guess we sounded desperate enough cause the fortis man came back said he blocked the golf course (he figured that was the problem) and put the transformers back up and sure enough there was light! So Kid's went back to bed we got to watch American idol and life made sense once again.
Things about the kid's this week.............
Brody is kinda going though a snotty stage. I snap at him and he snaps right back. I don't like it but i guess if i quit snapping at him he may quit snapping at me. Hmmmm Maybe I'll give that a try if that does not work he's going to have a very sore hide.
On the other had Brody and Paris have been big on "meetings" they get together first thing in the morning and give each other a pep talk on being so good and making mom and dad happy etc etc. and as soon as someone starts getting grumpy the other sure enough call's a "Meeting" and then they come back happy once again!
Paris is going though a emotional stage right now. We are not sure were it came from and we all hope it end's soon, One thing is said and off she goes running to her room, Door slams and well we are not even sure what happens after that cause, we are all to scared of her to check on her. So 30min or so later she comes back out just as sweet as she can be.??????
Paris was so sweet today she went to the library and looked so hard to find Brody a book that he would like and then checked it out for him. Brody does this quite often for her and she decided she better do it back, and sure enough B had done the same thing. So instead of just getting there own book both got each other a book.
Blaze is a pain in the butt still.(but we love him) He was bring grumpy this morning so i pulled out the big roll of paper, Layed him down on it and drew the outline of his body. He laughed thought it was so fun, so i told him to color his body
He took it literal
Knox has been such a good boy and working diligently on getting his top four teeth. They are all big and huge and so cute! He's a trooper that kid!
So i think i'm all caught up! Hopfully i won't go that long again so they don't have to be so long!

I Feel Naked. (Don't worry I'm not)

Blazer is in the tub and Knox is standing beside the tub playing and i thought it was a cute picture so i went to grab my camera.............................. It was missing! My mind raced back to were i had used it last. Oh yea Saturday......... Oh yea i left it there with a sister of the bride to catch the rest of the wedding action.

I'm not sure what to do without my camera. I really do feel awkward and out of place with out it. I think i better pick it up today so i feel whole once again.

Hmmm Weddings

This weekend was my good friend's (from a bazillion years ago) younger sister's wedding. I did there engagement picture for them. They turned out cute, well i thought so. So they asked if I would do there wedding pictures.............
A quick side note, I don't advertise that I take pictures, I love to take them and I do take them when people ask but i make sure they know that i kinda have a style and if they don't like what I've done before they won't like there pictures.

I really had a hard time saying yes cause i new it would stress me out! Which it totally did. By the time I got home i had a headache and my whole jaw hurt from clenching all day and i swore I will never do a wedding again! So I thought i would write it down so i can remember how stressed i was (and i really never get stressed, oh who am i kidding i do get stressed).
Oh and i should say it was my own stress, There was no stress from the family at all they were awesome! I've known all of them forever it seems and it's hard to imagine everyone is old and has kid's and is getting married!

So for my memories sake here are a few of the pictures! I've got to say though Brittany was so easy going and it really was a wonderful day and wedding! This was the easiest group of people to get good shot's of! Those Miller girls are beautiful!
