A Rough Day

Leify had his first batch of immunizations today. Gosh what an ordeal...I thought I was going to start crying along with him :( He got poked three times and screamed like a maniac. But he weighed 11 lbs 4 oz and is 23 inches long...Wow!!

A little more personal

Here is a video of Lil Leif, he absolutley LOVES music. His little eyes light up and he starts pumping his legs like crazy :) Don't mind Thor in the background...he is barking at the UPS guy. What a pest. Make sure your volume is on so you can hear his coo's! :)

Pics from the week!

Here are some cute pictures from this week. Lil Leif is getting stronger and is able to hold his head up for longer periods of time. My favorite though is the little booger sucking on his fist... he doesn't suck on his thumb or finger...but desperatley tries to get his whole entire fist into his mouth!! Hehe. And smiles always make me happy too!

Oh and I thought I'd include some pictures of our first born; Mr. Thorvald Lurlysson Hasselblad himself.(That is the name he is registered was Leif's idea) Doesn't he look like the scary old guy on stars wars kinda?? ;)

Christmas Tree

We went to the christmas tree farm down the road and picked out our tree...I had no idea that trees cost so much! It took us forever to find a tree that was both what we liked and were willing to pay for! But we finally found one and took it home and decorated it, Leify hung his first christmas ornament with Dad and then we dressed Thor up as a reindeer (he didn't like that too much) ;) All in all it was a fun family night!

We made our trip to Colorado and had sooo much fun! Leify got to meet his two cousins Aspen and Aubriana...Aspen was determined that Leify's suk suk should be in her mouth instead of his ;) It was so great to be with family and see our little ones together. It is going to be a blast seeing them grow up together! Here are the pics...Enjoy!
Aubrina sucking her fingers
A hint of a smile ;)
Hello there

Hey that looks good!

I'll take that!

Play Gym

Leify and I went shopping today (he is the best
shopping buddy ever!) and I found this great little
play gym. I've been looking for one for awhile now
and this one looked like too much fun to pass up :)
Leify loves it! He is so adorable; he was looking at
himself in the little mirror and making all kinds of
cute little noises. Too much fun!

She's Here

I am waiting for pictures...but Aubriana is here!! 7 lbs 3 0z :) YAY!

One more picture...


A New Cousin is on the way!!

Nicole is in the hospital about to have Aubriana! We are so excited!! We get to leave on Friday to see both her and Aspen; Leify will get to meet cousins on both sides of the family this weekend.

I thought that since the picture we had of Leify last time was announcing his love for me I'd put one on here that had to do with Daddy ;) (Thanks Grandma Diane!)

I love this shirt

Leify is getting much more aware of his surroundings. He loves his swing; he'll just sit in it and look up above him at the animals on the mobile. He also has started responding to particular voices (he loves Grandma's voice!) I've gotten him to smile a few times; not just after passing gas either :)

He is gaining weight like crazy too! When we left the hospital he weighed 7 pounds 4 ounces...he lost quite a bit of weight due to my having a c-section and waiting for my milk to come in. But anyways I just weighed him this morning and he is only a few ounces shy of 10 pounds!!

Little Clone

Pictures of Leify!

Here they are as I promised!


Last night we went to the premeire of Beowulf. We didn't have a baby sitter so we took Leify along. He was awesome! I felt bad though... every time there was a loud sudden noise his arms would fly up in his carseat :/ I am going to post pictures later today but the poor little guy is going bald. It's quite funny he's got a strip left on top like a mohawk and then there is still hair all along the bottom. Hehe.

Thor is missing

Well I can't say my blog is complete until I've got a picture of Thor Baby on here. This is how he made the 6 hour trip to Harris Beach in the back of Leif's truck. What a wacko.
The video is of Thor just being the crazy man he is :)

Craft Warehouse Extravaganza!!

Last night my mom and I hit up the craft warehouse because they were having the annual Christmas open house...anyways they were doing prize drawings every 15 mintues; there were about 200 numbers taped to there floor and if you were standing on the number that they called you got to go to "prize central" and pick out a prize. We were there about 1o minutes and I won!! I got a bag full of scrap booking/card making paper, ribbons, etc...Probably about $75 worth off stuff! Hooray!
Nicole I am sending you a bunch of it, its cute girly stuff ;)

Great Grandma's

Leify met his second great grandma today, but I forgot my camera so I only have evidence of one! :) This is my Dad's mom Bonnie Jones. She is the mother of 13 children and only stands about 4'10''. We were visiting here a while ago we were talking about how labor went for her...she had us all laughing when she said she barely got her shoes off in time!! My Dad said him and his siblings wouldn't even know she was pregnant until she would show up after being gone for a couple days with a baby. How funny is that...?!?
Today we went and visited with Vi Leif''s Mom's mom. She is an absolute delight of a little woman :) We actually had the privilege of living with her for a few months after we were married in her basement that we affectionately called "the cave"

Shopping with Mom

Leify and I had our first outing to the craft store today and I am happy to announce that he is nothing like his predecessor (his father) in the situation. He was an absolute angel; didn't even make a peep the whole time! Anyways be watching the mail...the trip was to get the last of my supplies for his birth announcements; they will be mailed out by the end of the week (hopefully) ;) Here's a pic of the cutie pie; he has been especially's his happy little smirk after a long meal.

A Special Day

Today was a special day for our little guy...His Dad gave him a beautiful blessing...all of my brothers and sisters came home for the event. This is a picture of my almost entire family; a few nephews are missing along with a brother-in-law. Leif's Dad was also able to make it but left before the picture taking. Family's are so amazing and I am so thankful for mine!!
My sister-in-law Nicole is due on the 24th...the crazy girl flew here even though her Dr called and chewed her out before doing so ;) Her and my brother are awesome and were so excited to have Leify and their little girl Aubriana so close in age. Leify's got new cousin's on both sides of the family! Aspen and Aubriana will be making play barbie's and giving his Dad a hard attack in the meantime. :) He twinges at the idea of him even wearing a soft green little outfit he says it's too girly ;) haha.

Giving it a try

Ok, so my sister in law Yvonne has a page on this website and I love it because I can check it out whenever and almost undoubtedly she has some adorable pic of Aspen on I thought I'd give it a shot. Now you guys will be able to have little Leify at your finger tips whenever your heart desires! ;) The only problem is Yvonne is the only person I know on you guys better hurry up and make pages too!

Leify and I went for a walk today, hahaha, he looks like the kid from "A Christmas Story". He's going to hate me. ;)

This pic is too hilarious not to Dad gave Leify his first horse back riding experience yesterday; Thor didn't know what the heck was going on.
