I'm a BIG BOY now!!

These pictures are the most recent. This was last night when Linken was helping daddy pack for his scout camp out. He wanted to try it on.... As you can see he now figured out to smile when mommy says CHEESE!!

This other picture shows his other top tooth!! He now has 4 Teeth! Well Linken is almost 18 months old now and is busy, busy, busy! He is getting so big and lately seems more like a little man to me than a little boy just by his big personality. He is trying to talk so much now and can say a lot of words: Oey= our dog Zoey, mom, dad, I want that, mine, car, ball, straw, bowl, cracker, papa, gama= grandma, eesa= my sister Jalisa, cat, goat, bottle, drink, bubble, water, bath, moomie- movie, bye-bye, thank you, nigh night, no, outside, flower, bug and more. He is trying to put together sentences which is hilarious. He also has started to do the signs he has learned from his Baby Signing Time movies. He can sign; more, play, eat, drink, bird, dog, friend, please, and stop. I'm amazed at how quick he is picking things up. The other day we were in the backyard playing and I yelled for Brady and then all of the sudden Linken goes to the door and starts yelling "Brady" it was pretty cute. He is trying to be so independent too... he loves climbing up on everthing by himself, he loves taking daddy's tools and trying to fix stuff and loves feeding himself. At the beginning of this month we also got him his own big boy bed and he has been sleeping in it pretty well (more like we) because he only sleeps 3-4 hours at a time so when he wakes up in the middle of the night I usually am so tired I stay and sleep with him. But I do must say he is getting better and better at sleeping by himself. Linken is such a blessing in my life and I love him him more and more each day and I'm so grateful to have him. He is growing up so fast but only seems to be getting more cute... Here's Linken with a screwdriver in hand helping daddy put together his new bed. As you can see in the picture above he is EXCITED!! This last picture makes me sad... as you can see he has a hurt foot. Well the other day I was warming up lunch ( his favorite leftover noodles) and they split coming out of the microwave and some cheese landed on his foot and burned him. He had two little blisters and thanks to all of his daddy's leftover burn wraps and ointments from his work accident back in 2007 we were able to wrap it up and get them healed in no time!! So packing around a bin of burn supplies for the last 3 years actually came in handy!!

Good Ol' Farm Life...

Well since my mom and dad are living on out on the 10 acres the weekends have gotten busy with the farm life. It's not really a farm but there are 2 goats left of the 7, two baby horses (Twix & Nilla), two big horses (Boomer & Snickers), 1 cat, and 3 dogs when all of us are out there. Linken loves it out there and enjoys playing in the dirt and riding his cousins four wheeler. A couple weekends ago we also had my Uncle Ryan and the kids out there. It was fun to watch the kids run around.

Here's Tyler and Linken riding the four wheeler.Taylor & Haidyn Haidyn Tyler & Lacee swinging on my dad's hand made swing!!

Random Pics...

So in this picture Linken is 16 months old and this is the first picture I finally got of his tooth. He actually has two bottom teeth but you can never see them. So I was glad to get this picture of what we call his " hillbilly tooth" This is Link loving the dirt at grammy and grandpas house. This boy would live outside if he could... and yes he is in a swim suit and barefooted. We were helping papa set up his new pool which you can kindof see in the background.

Juline this is for you since you aren't here to watch dad be dad!! This is dad in his awesome outfit after setting up the pool cutting limbs off the front trees. Brady and dad wanted to do some minor tree trimming and they ended up trimming both big trees for about three hours. We were trimming trees until about 11:00 pm. DAD we love you!!
Okay so these pictures are definatly random and I'm a big fan of pictures of myself but the story is quite funny. Linken has figured out recently that when mommy has the camera to run or not look when she asks. So a couple weeks ago I went to take some pictures of him and thats is exactly what he did. So I decided to take one with him and show him the display. So in the first picture hes looking at the camera and in the second he's trying to look at me to see if I'm looking at the camera.

August came and went....

Well August seriously felt like it flew by.... On August 4th Brady and I celebrated our 4 year annivsery, we went and saw Eclipse which was AWESOME!! That next day we flew to Utah for Brady's cousin Nick's wedding that weekend. Oh course our trip was only a short weekend trip but was full of fun...

Here's Linken trying to carry off daddy's laptop bag in the airport haha! This picture above is Linken trying out a sour candy... you can almost see his eyes watering!

Linken was a trooper on the plane. As soon as we borded the plane he was asleep and woke up right when we landed in Utah... Good thing its a short flight from Cali to Utah! Here he is already asleep.
Once we landed in Utah we drove out to Mona to stay with Brady's mom, Granda Sue and Grandpa Scott. Linken was well entertained Scott had a cute little kitten and dog to play with. He even had a rooster that was pretty entertaining to watch the cat and dog try to chase. Linken and Brady also rode the 4 wheeler as you can see in the picture below Linken was ready to keep doing once daddy got off. Then Saturday was the BIG day... Nick and Kelly's wedding. Linken of course was to shy to let me go in for the ceremony so we waited outside the temple watch with Hayden and watched the BMX bikers across the street, and had pine cone tossing contests. The weather was crazy and got windy and rainy pretty fast which you will see in the pictures as well. Congrats Nick and Kelly!! Thanks for letting us be a part of your special day!!
