AF Canyon

We have been so lucky to live in one of the prettiest places in Utah! Our bedroom window faces right to Mt. Timp and American Fork Canyon. Over fall break we went up with some of our friends and took some family pictures. I think they turned out great and cost a total of $6 (the fee to get up the canyon). After we made a fire and had some hotdogs and s'mores. What a perfect day!

Molly! Molly came into our life yesterday! Kaden LOVES dogs! So when the opportunity came for the exact dog we wanted for free, we took it! She is a full bred shih tzu a few years old and already potty trained! Last night was our first night with her and she was awesome. So far I haven't heard one bark, (the only new noises has been Kaden squealing in delight!) there have been no accidents, and no chewed on toys. The best thing is that she is hypoallergenic, so it shouldn't bother those with allergies, doesn't shed and is the calmest dog I know. Even when Kaden yanked on her tail there was no bite, not even a nip. We are sure glad she joined the family! And I have another girl on my side! Even if she is a dog.

Our little Kade-Man turned one on Tuesday! He is such a wonderful kiddo, We're so glad that he is in our family! It's hard to believe that a year ago he was in the NICU and now he is a happy, healthy, growing boy! We had his 1 year check up today and he is:

20.8 lbs (35th %ile)
31 inches (85th %ile)

tall and skinny!

He eats everything, loves milk, loves playing with friends, loves teasing and giving kisses. He walks, jumps, waves, says mama, dada, ball, light, yes, up, one, and banana.

He loves Lightning McQueen, golf balls, blocks, pillows, soft blankets, cheese, bananas, spaghetti, french fries, green beans, apples, peaches, pears, sandwiches, and CAKE!

We love when he is playful and teases. He is such a people watcher and is concerned when others are upset. Loves to be in the conversation and center of attention.

We sure love our little guy! Happy Birthday Kaden!!!

Cuddling with everything soft!

Loves swimming!

Plays with the toilet paper rolls all the time!


Loves his Uncle Tom!

We'll add more pics from his birthday party soon!

New Addition in the Brown Home!

I know you thought it was going to be a baby, but check out this baby! Our neighbor had a garage sale last week and we bought this pretty baby for a steal of a deal! The amazing thing was that every part was there and working perfectly, no scratches or anything, they even had the original balls to go with it. We've had a lot of fun having it in our house as you can see. When the basement is finished it will go down there, hopefully with an air hockey table or pool table as well. And I have to admit, Jimmy is a rock star when it comes to just about any sport or game, and I have yet to beat him still, but it will happen some day... just you watch!

Sorry, Jimmy's faces were so funny to me that I had to post all of the pics!


So I know I posted forever ago about our landscaping and house projects over spring break and I still haven't done an update on that post, and this is not one either, but, as I mentioned before we planted blackberries and we ate our first blackberries today! They were so sweet and yummy, not tart.

Bearing fruit

Too bad their isn't taste-o-vision on the internet, but if you come over in the next couple days I'll let you have one for yourself!

Also have you ever wondered what the teeniest grapes look like? Granted, they are still growing but aren't they cute!

Look really close and you can see the teeny tiny grapes!


Well Kaden had his 9 month well baby check up on his 10 month birthday (long story, not gonna tell). He is growing perfectly (as the doc said) The arc on his growth chart is pretty darn steady! Here are his stats:

Weight- 18.8 lbs (14th %ile)
Height- 28.25 in (32nd %ile)
Head- 17.7 in (30th %ile)

Tall and skinny like the doc said. It's really amazing to see where he used to be when he was born and where he is now. He's tripled his birth weight, and his head circumference was only 4th %ile! (which I was grateful for pushing him out!) I can't believe that he is going to be 1 in two months!!! He has grown into such a personality. My favorite things that he does is jumping in his crib when I go to get him, his look of concern if anyone is crying, playing "face bomb" diving into a soft blanket/pillow, and dancing!

In the last month he has been:
Starting to transition to 1 nap :(
walking with only one hand of help
standing on his own
and lots of other things I can't think of right now. I really need to make sure that I write this all down in his book. I don't think I've updated that in a long time! And, I finally uploaded some new pics. Enjoy the cuteness!

First sparkler with Daddy


I love me some Spaghetti!

Uh Oh! I can get in cabinets now! (and he already broke 2 bowls!!!)

I help mommy with the laundry

Months that is! Our little cutie Kaden is already 9 months old! We couldn't get in to the doc till the 21st so we'll get measurements later, but here is what he can do!

He can:
Say Mama, Dada, Baba
Crawl up the stairs
Points to what he wants
Pull himself up and walk around holding on to things
Pull lots of things out of containers
Ride in the shopping cart
give kisses
walk when we hold his hands
Loves to read with mom and dad

He loves to eat:
with his two teeth!
real people food! No more baby food jars for this one (yea!)
bananas, apple sauce, oatmeal, peas, cheese, puffs, green beans, peaches, otter pops, and anything else we are eating

He plays with his:
piano, cars, star tower, ball, pool, "face bomb" (a game daddy made up) and anything mommy and daddy have.

He sure seems like he is growing up so fast. His personality and looks are still a blend of both mommy and daddy. He is so happy and excited to be with people. At church last week we were sitting in the back row and he climbed up to see the people in the back and was smiling and laughing and clapping for them and holding up his arms to go over there. We were laughing so hard it was so cute and funny!

And for your viewing pleasure...

Sorry Kiddo, 15 more years!

Loves drinking from our cups

Loves crawling around after a bath

Cruising in the cart at Lowes

He LOVES reading books and turning pages.

Chilling with his car, pillow pet, and bottle. How much better can it get?

He got really sick during May. Not fun!

Walking around at Parade of Homes

Playing with his piano




He fell asleep, and I found him like this with his monkey on his head. So cute!

Yep, climbing the couch.

We tried out his new pool and he loves it!

I'm so grateful to be home with this kiddo all summer. He is such a blast, it's going to be a great summer!
