Moving and Teething!

What a weekend!! The weather finally cooled off a little bit, which is nice for our electric bill! We spent Sunday night at my dad's house having fun with the family. Here are a few candids of the evening!


Boys will be boys! I was really trying to get a cute family pic...this is what I end up with.Somebody is getting little teeth!!
We don't know if he is praising the Lord or calling a goal!
He loves his daddy!
Yes...He has balls!

Now for our favorite part! Malakai spent about a half an hour "chasing" his balls across my dad's living room. He might have had a little help from some on-lookers, but boy oh boy can he really move now. He doesn't actually crawl yet, but he has the army crawl down. Eric was smart enough to get a video of it!

We can't wait for this next weekend, we are planning on having loads of fun with family! Pictures of his baptism to come!

Summer is Here!

Summer has come in full force! The past two days have been roughly 90 degrees. Thank God for central air! Malakai is getting so close to crawling. He has discovered how to roll to get where he wants. So, inevitably, his pack and play has become pretty much obsolete. At a garage sale, I picked up a play yard for $20! It fits great in our living room, once we took down our coffee table, but the sacrifice is worth it. This thing keep him busy for hours! Hopefully the picture does it justice!


He couldn't wait for me to finish cleaning it. Yes, I've been labeled a germa-phobe! I always clean his toys before he initially plays with them, even if I get them from the store. You never know who has touched them!
The mirror amazed him for at least a half an hour.
Then he started to give the baby kisses! It was hilarious! After I would take a picture, he would turn and look at me and then go back to kissing the baby.
So excited for the sibby cup!
Until he tasted what was in it! Since it was so hot this week, I put a little bit of cold water in it, instead of formula. I really think it just took him by surprise, but the face he made is priceless!
I was hoping to be able to post about Father's Day and the Baptizm, but we didn't take pictures with our camera. So I'll have to get the pictures from the family! Then I will update on the very entertaining morning we had!

Pro Pictures

We decided to get Malakai picture taken professionally. Here are the final products, plus the one at the top.





Didn't they turn out great! He is such a little stud!

Oh Goodness!

There has been so much happening! We've been the little busy bees! Malakai is growing in leaps and bounds. Everyday he does something new and great. So I will start, hopefully, were I left off.
After our last doctor's appointment, we decided to try giving Malakai a sippy cup. Our doctor suggested it. This is just one picture of the whole progression. It was very entertaining to watch him try and work it out. After a few minutes of struggle, we decided that we definitaly need to work on it with him. I actually found a sippy cup at the grocery store that helps with the progress of it. It has 3 different tops, a nipple, a spout, and a straw. He has done really well using this one.
Malakai really enjoys riding on Daddy's back. We took him mini golfing one weekend and he had such a blast!
The next three are hilarious. Since he has gotten so good at sitting up, I will let him sit up on the carpet in his room (it's softer incase he does tip over). One day I was folding his laundry and he decided that since he could sit up, he was going to help me. Mind you, the whole situation took no more than a couple minutes. It made me laugh so hard because I thought I was doing good by giving him a burp clothe to play with. Well aparently he wanted more!

A few weeks ago, I won four tickets to the WhiteCaps game. Since Eric was working a crazy shift at work, I took my Grandparents and my brother. This was Malakai's first game and boy oh boy did he have fun! The first one is him sporting his cool shades.
Great Grandpa thought is would be great to put his hat on Malakai. As you can tell, he thought it was super great.
When we are in big crowds, Malakai tends to get distracted by what is going on. This picture was the best that we could get. The poor person in the costume had to stand there for at least four different pictures. Malakai was super busy looking around at everything. In this one he really doesn't look like he is having such a good time!
What a little stud!
Toward the end of the game, Malakai was getting fussy. Well, at least until he found Grandpa's shades. Those poor things had some much slobber on them!

Well, that is pretty much up to date. Malakai is getting baptized on Father's Day! Which I think is just so cool that Eric gets such a great privelegde to share "his" day. We are really excited.
I will really try to update more than once a month!
Have a great day and God Bless!
