Sydney is walking really well! She can also get off of our couch by herself. Here's a video of her walking through the house!

10 Things About Brian

Well, we had a nice birthday party on Saturday for Brian.It was fun to get with some friends and play some games. Thank you to everyone who came and showed love for Brian. As part of the party, I compiled a list of ten things you may or may not know about Brian. Here it goes:
10. Brian was born weighing less than me, Meagan, when I was born.
9. Brian does great Elmo and Arnold Schwarzenegger impressions.
8. Brian once saw Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley play golf in person.
7. As a child, Brian wanted be to a veterinarian.
6. Brian was a Geology major before he became a Business Management Major.
5. Brian has never been outside the U.S.
4. Brian has never broken a bone but his nose was broken by his brother when they were playing catch.
3. Brian has an ancestor, Thomas Grover, in the Doctrine & Covenants.
2. Brian knows all ten names of one of his old missionary companions to this day (something like Neil Jamar Muhammad Muhammad..... you get the idea).
1. Brian had a near-death experience when his car went off-road and stopped short of a cliff when his back tire hit a ground telephone pole.

So, which ones shocked you? or do you know Brian so well that you knew all of these?

The Adventures of Late

Well, first off, Brian turned the big 2-8 this past Tuesday! We went out to eat at our fave restaurant in Rexburg, Winger's. Brian also got a free movie rental at Hollywood. We plan on having a birthday party this Saturday.
Sydney keeps growing and learning! She can be trying some days but I thought you might enjoy these videos and pictures of what she has been up to lately.One night, Sydney decided to drag me around the house. See that grip on my shirt?!!

She has had fun lately with spewing her food out and then rubbing her hands over her mouth.
Brian got Sydney to play peek-a-boo with him last night. It was so adorable!

Gotta love this little girl's giggles.

9 months old and Independence Day!

Sydney turned 9 months old yesterday! As you saw from the previous post, she is almost to getting around all by herself- she will pull herself up on things and then let go and stand there for several seconds. Today I even saw her squat down and pick something up and then stand back up. She's getting good! And she'll sometimes take a step or two away from things- she's not scared!
Here she is climbing out of her high chair! I guess she was done eating!
She's getting better at letting us take pictures of her SMILING!
The day started off with Brian helping the Veteran's Organization in Rexburg put up flags all around town at 6AM. Good for you, dear! Then, we went to the Whoopee Days (don't blame me, I didn't name it that) Celebration for Rexburg. Of course we never take a holiday and set up our board game booth. We did fairly well!

This was our favorite float in the parade. Broulim's is the local grocery store.

Our 4th of July isn't over yet, we're going to Idaho Falls and hang out with some friends as we watch the fireworks! Happy Independence Day everyone!

Learning to Walk

Sydney turns 9 months old tomorrow. She is starting to take a few steps! Soon she will be a walking monster! We have already moved our DVD collection up higher and will soon start putting child-safety locks on drawers in the kitchens. I'll post some 9-month old shots tomorrow. For now, here is a video of us practicing walking with Sydney.
