Congratulations Katie!!!

Our very good friend Katie just finished a grueling year of school to receive her RN. I can not believe all the work she had and how time consuming her program was. We are SO proud of you Katie!!!

Thank you!!!

My little sister Jeni came for two weeks in November to help out with Phoenix while we had the baby. Also one of my favorite people Tara Salinas came for a week. It was awesome. They were so much fun to hang out with and they were both SO much help with Phoenix. Thank you both....We could not have done it without you!!! We love you.

Here is a recent picture of the brothers. Phoenix really loves baby Zion.

Visit from our cousins

My sister Brandi, her husband Eric and their three kids Amara, Sully, and Finnigan came to visit from Seattle for two weeks. We had a lot of fun. Phoenix LOVED playing with all his cousins.

Zion Storm Morgan

Well it finally happened. Zion Storm Morgan joined our family on Friday November 16th at 10:56am. He weighed 8 pounds 12 ounces and was 20 3/4 inches long. He is amazing. We love him so much and are SO grateful for all of our blessings.

The "Butt Paste" Bicyclist!!

The other morning a friend of mine stopped by and I was in the front room talking to her. Phoenix was in the family room. I could see him and I kept looking in a him, but let me just say it only takes a 2 year old about 30 seconds to get into trouble.

He comes walking into the front room saying..."See mommy, See?" I turn around and he is COVERED in butt paste. I wanted to get mad but I just couldn't. I called upstairs to Byron and had him come look and Byron, myself and my friend were all just laughing.

Sometimes you have to laugh or you would just cry!! Oh 2 year olds!
Also I put a picture of Phoenix's new bike. He loves it. He thinks he has to wear his helmet to ride it.

Baby Shower

Byron's office had a baby shower for us the other day. It was a lot of fun and good to get to meet all of his employees. I think this is one of the only pictures of Byron and I together since I got pregnant with Zion.

Only 15 days left....

We are almost to the due date. We are getting very excited. I figured I would post some recent pictures of myself before the big day.

It's a bird, It's a plane, It's SUPERMAN!!!

All I can say is....."Have you ever seen a cuter Superman?" We had our Trunk-or-Treat the other night and our friends and neighbors went with us. Phoenix and Taylor are such good little friends, they get along so good.

Carving our Pumpkin

We carved Phoenix's pumpkin on friday night. This was the first time Phoenix has carved a pumpkin, and he LOVED it. He sat and played in the pumpkin guts for probably 45 min at the table.

The Great Pumpkin Patch!!!

Phoenix and I went with some friends today to a little pumpkin patch in Leander. It was the PERFECT size pumpkin patch. Phoenix just ran and ran, picked up pumpkins and of course played in the dirt.

Thanks Smith Family!!

Our good friends the Smith's from our old ward just traded us our chest freezer for these fun outside toys for Phoenix. Phoenix was SO excited when he saw them (especially the one with the slide) I took him out yesterday to play on them, and he thought they were awesome. It is the perfect size for him and he had so much fun. He went up and down the slide several times and then decided to lay down for a little rest. It was so cute. Thanks Smiths!

He thinks he is SO big!

Phoenix thinks he is all grown up these days. Byron's phone has a fun block game on it that Phoenix has discovered recently and LOVES to play. It is pretty cute to watch.

Best Buddies

This is Phoenix's friend Taylor. She lives across the street from us. Phoenix and Tay Tay (as he calls her) play all the time out in the yard while Byron and I chat with Taylors mom and Dad. We have become pretty good friends and Phoenix even had his first play date at Taylor's house the other day.

Yeah Phoenix!

Well for about a week now Phoenix has been going potty on the toilet every morning right after his bath. I actually had one day I did not change a poopy diaper all day long. That was cool. I am not getting my hopes to high as I know alot of kids have a problem when a new baby is born. I will just be excited and proud of Phoenix while it lasts. He is awesome!!

She keeps on growing, and growing, and.......

So here is a recent picture of the growing belly. I am just over 32 weeks now. It feels like I just popped out all of the sudden in the last 2 weeks.

My latest project!

Phoenix has used the same two flannel blankets since he was born. When he was almost 2 Byron and I left him for almost a week with my sister and brother-in-law so we could go on a cruise to Mexico together. While we were gone Phoenix became extra attached to those blankets. He has a white and blue one (his favorite) and a green one (the back-up) His white one he calls "Boo" and his green one he calls "Other Boo."

I decided Zion was going to need some "Boos" too. I went last week and bought the flannel and for the last few days I have not left my sewing machine. I made two blankets and four matching burp clothes.

First trip to the dentist!

"Are you ready Leopard?"
"Say Awwww!"
"Look how brave I am Leopard!"
"Let's floss."
"Now rinse."

Well Phoenix had his first dental appointment today. He had an exam and a full cleaning. They were not sure they would be able to do a cleaning because Phoenix is still kind of young, but he was AWESOME. I took Leopard with us and they were great to play into that. Fist Leopard got his teeth cleaned then Phoenix.

What is your guess?

We thought it would be fun to take a poll and see what everyone thought. We want to know your guess for:

The date Zion will be born on:
The time of day:
His weight (in pounds and ounces:)
His lenghth:

Now keep in mind Phoenix was 8 pounds 13 ounces and 22 inches long.

Post your guess in the comments. We only have 58 more days!!
