Leify has a big head

I am really starting to become horrible about having timely posts on here. Sorry guys!

We made a trip up to our property on Saturday it was a beautiful day...probably around 80 degrees, CRAZY. I was nervous that Leify was going to get sun burnt so I lathered him up real good in sunscreen and put a long sleeve shirt on him with just his diaper AND I thought that a hat would be a good idea...but as you can see his head has grown quite a bit since the last time he wore that hat and well, it just didn't fit!

I don't exactly know what this face his all about, but this picture kills me.

We are so excited about our house and the prospect of having our own place. It is slowly coming along, Leif and I are truly learning patience. Something both of us need...but don't necessarily want ;) The well is supposed to be hooked up by Wednesday and then hopefully after we pass the temporary power inspection they can pour the foundation...WAHOOO.

Leif is on the home stretch for the Spring Semester at WSU and looking forward to just taking 1-2 classes this summer. He can't wait to be done. I am so grateful to him...he works so hard, constantly. He always has something going on, sometimes I can be a little selfish and get mad because I NEVER see him it seems like, but I am truly grateful for all he does to ensure that our family is well provided for. He is an amazing husband, dad, and the best friend I could ever ask for. Good job Leif..we love you. MUAH.

I started my Trim and Tone class at Clark College. So far it has been really fun, when I get up off the mat I definitely can feel that I have been working my muscles. It is also nice to have something a little different to look forward to during the week. Sometimes I get a little stir crazy. When I was 15 I was determined to make my own $ so I got a job at Dairy Queen, after that I did a 4 year stint at OHSU..and so on. I have always worked and gone to school. I am not saying that I am not grateful for the amazing opportunity to stay at home with Leif and enjoy all of his milestones; it has just been a major transition for me.

On Saturday after we got home from the property we made a trip to Grandma Vi's. We have purchased 2 weeks of her condo time, so we went to finalize everything and sign the necessary papers. We are soo soo excited about it! The condo is in Ocean Park, it is very peaceful and we have an awesome time whenever we go out there. Bob and Vi bought the time before Leif was even born. He has many many many fun memories of going out there with his Grandparents, brothers, and cousin Peter. We look forward to having many great memories of our own in the future! We can also trade the time and go almost anywhere in the world. We probably won't be trading anywhere exotic for awhile, lol, but there are Resorts close like Sun river, Leavenworth...and Colorado ;) Well, Colorado isn't exactly close but we love to go out there and visit Malo and Yvonne ;)

Leify is a little chub chub he loves to eat, my goodness. He is such a sweet little baby, I can't go anywhere without people commenting on his ice blue eyes. He is such a cute guy. He is pretty serious; it seems like he thinks things out before he does them. Sometimes he is pretty goofy though, yesterday he would not hold still for anything...he just thought he was the funniest little thing! I almost needed to take a nap after church. I am working on having him sit up on his own. He can usually sit unassisted for about um, 2 is a work in progress ;)


  1. Do you have one of those Bumbo seats? That was something that Aspen loved when she couldn't quite keep herself sitting up...and I think it helped her do it on her own...she got used to the "view" from sitting up and I think worked harder to do it on her own. Might be something worth considering! :)

  2. I love it! I just saw Leify and already he looks so different. He looks really long in his addidas outfit. I have to say you guys make a really cute family! A week and a half to play! ;)
