Catch Up

Well Josh had his 8 month doctors appointment today. We had 8 months instead of 9 - because he needed some immunizations before he was 8 months old. Here are his stats for today:

Weight: 15 pounds 14 ounces - 4%
Height: 28 1/4 inches - 78%

Sadly for little Josh - he has been sick the past 4-5 days. He stated with an upset tummy, and then came the vomiting, poop, and fevers. He had been all smiles until yesterday. And to top it all off at his appointment today, we found out he has a super duper bad ear infection. SAD BOY!! Needless to say we have done more laundry this past week then ever before, and we are pros at taking apart the car seat for cleaning! We hope our Joshy gets feeling better soon!

We have so many other updates!!

We went to Minersville the middle of April for Nick's cousin Ali's homecoming from her mission! It was Josh's first time to Minersville, to Grandma and Grandpa's and his first time playing in their 'park!'

Josh's first - very short - 4 wheeler ride with Uncle Gus and Shakell!

Welcome to Minersville Josh! Daddy's hometown!

Aunt Ashley graduated in May with her teaching degree!
Josh looks so happy for her! Don't you think!

Our niece, Aryale got baptized the same day Ashley graduated! So we all headed up to Minersville to celebrate! It was so neat to watch her dad baptize and confirm her! Afterwords, we got a picture with all 9 grandkids with Grandma and Grandpa!

We've had lots of new friends for Josh to meet!

This is the Arnold Family. Their dad works with Nick. They recently adopted Keegan, also from Georgia! We are so excited for Josh to have such a fun new friend! We had a great time at their house in May - homemade pizza, Krave yogurt, and fun visiting! Thanks Arnolds!

Craig, Sarah, and Christopher Yerke, came and spent the weekend with us in May! We had a blast! We always love when the Yerke's come - they seriously crack us up!!! Christopher is just a month older than Josh - he is such a happy baby! And he is so tall because his parents are both GIANTS! We love you Yerke's! Come visit anytime!

Of course, we love Blair! We were over at the Albrecht's for Blair's birthday in May, and Blair just loved putting his hat on Josh! Josh liked it too!

Camrie, our favorite neighbor, and girlfriend, turned one in May! Because of the bad weather, the party was moved from the park to the garage! We had a great time!

Wow Andrea! You've got Josh and the cute birthday girl, Camrie!

A few days after Camrie's birthday party, we were watching the Webb kids, and we decided to go for a short walk. Braxton rode his bike with Nick, Tanner rode his bike alongside Paige while she pushed Josh and Camrie - in the same stroller! Josh and Camrie actually got along really well, and they were laughing at each other!

For Memorial Day, we spent the day with Paige's family. We cleaned graves in Pinto, and then on to New Castle. Then we had a BBQ in Enterprise with lots of Paige's aunts, uncles, and cousins. It was a great day!

Don't try to find Nick, he was taking the picture!

We took Josh there for a quick picture.
Paige loved her grandparents, and has so many good memories at their home!

The first week of June, we took Josh to Grandma Luey's house for his first swim! The water was still a little cool, but he loves the water! He had a great time splashing around!

Josh looking so dang HOT!

Swimming with Mommy

Daddy and Josh, don't mind the pink tube! We'll buy boy toys soon!

Always have to have a good spit-up after the swim!

On Monday June 7th, Josh started day care. Our hospital provides services for the employees, so lucky us! Josh had a rough first day, which involved lots of tears. So sad. Tuesday was a great day, and then Wednesday and Thursday the tummy bug got him - he was still very happy even though he was throwing up and having blow-outs!

First day at day care with Mommy!

Over the last weekend, we got to go to Orem to meet with Josh's social worker, to have our second post-placement visit. We drove up Thursday night after work, and planned on returning home Saturday. The visit was great. The traveling was not. Josh was sick on the way up, and then Paige woke up with the tummy bug on Friday morning. We had our visit, met up for a minute with Tyler and Camille (our friends from Indiana) and then headed home early. There is nothing like being at home in your own bed when you don't feel good!

Of course we had to stop by Temple Square!
It was raining, but we toured the Visitor Centers, Beehive home,
Joseph Smith Memorial, and the temple grounds.

I'm so happy for you, Paige. I haven't been keeping up to date, but I see you got your little chocolate bar, and I can't smile enough looking at the pictures. I would love to meet him in person.
