Davis's 2 month stats

Went to the doctor today, which was pretty sad because Davis got shots.  Here are his stats:
  • Weight: 12.94 lbs.  75 percentile
  • Length: 23.25 inches.  58 percentile
  • Head: 16.9 inches.  98 percentile
Not as tall as we thought he would be, but his head is just as big as expected!

2 months!

Everyday life

Here are some sweet pictures of Davis growing up, in no particular order . . .

We call these the many faces of Davis!

Blessing Davis

Blessing our baby was a lot of fun!  Our church switched to the 9am block, and, since we weren't supposed to take him to church anyway, we skipped after sacrament meeting.  We were able to have both sets of grandparents, and lots of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends there.  It was a great experience!

Chris gave a great blessing.  He blessed Davis with health, strength, and intelligence.  He also blessed him with the gift of kindness to others.  He said that Davis would have the strength to overcome adversity.  He said that he would serve a mission and find joy in doing so.  He also said that Christ would become Davis's best friend.  He asked for Heavenly Father to give his parents the strength to live the gospel and teach him the right way to live.  He said that Davis would also be strong in the face of temptation.  There were many family members and friends who were able to be at the blessing, including Dad, Taylor, Carter, Casey, Dad Rusch, Uncle John, Uncle Louis, Edward Urbina, EJ Wimmer, and John Oakey.  It was a beautiful blessing.
After the blessing, we all had a brunch at our house and enjoyed being around family and friends.  It was a great day!


Wow!  It has been a long time since I have blogged . . .

For Christmas, we went to Idaho to hang out with my family.  My brother, Carter, got married on December 15th in Salt Lake, and had his reception in Idaho Falls that night.  So, we joined in the fun!  We were able to get a picture taken of our whole family (doesn't happen too often!) and we also got this picture of just the grandkids . . .
Davis also had his picture with his cousin, Eli, who is about two months older.  At their age, it is amazing what a difference two months makes!
Someday, they will be best cousin friends and go to EFY together!
My birthday is on the 16th, and Max's is on the 17th, so we spend time together as a family for our birthdays . . .

Chris went back to Orem to work for a few days, and Davis and I stayed with Mom and Dad.  Davis had his one month anniversary!
Chris came back, and we went to the cabin for a few days.  The cabin was a perfect place to be for my "newborn coma."

 Then, of course, there was the annual cutting down of the Christmas tree event (which I was not part of)

 And the Christmas jammies unwrapping . . .
And Christmas Day!

Much fun was had by all!  We are so grateful that we were able to spend the holiday with family!
