My Growing Baby

My Kilun is growing up too fast and I don't like it at all. I want him to stay my baby forever. I love this stage!! He's such a good and happy baby. Unless he's tired or hungry, he's always smiling. I love how he loves his brothers. Sometimes they come in the room to talk to me and he will just start laughing at them. Chaetun is so good with him. If he's crying, he'll sit down and talk to him to get him to stop. Chaetun is pretty good at getting Kilun to laugh and does it often. Xadun & Brekan also love Kilun and love to love on him as often as they can. I also love how Kilun loves me. He's really my only child that has constantly been with me. I take him everywhere with me. With the other boys, I had to leave them with a babysitter fairly early on, but now that we own the gym, I get to take him with me. If Kilun is crying, I can pick him up and he'll stop. Conversely, he can be sitting with his dad and if he sees me or hears me come in the room he'll get fussy. I'm sure he's spoiled at this point, but I don't care. I want to take in every moment of this time. It makes me sad that this could be my last baby, so I want to make sure it lasts as long as it can!

Kilun has been hitting some milestones in the last month. He finally started taking a bottle. I only started to try to give him a bottle when he was 4-5 months old. At first he wanted nothing to do with it. I bought a couple of different bottles, but he wouldn't have any of it. I decided to try a different type of formula. When I went to the store I was looking for one without iron in it because I know that must make it taste nasty. It definitely makes it smell nasty! Since all formulas have iron, I setteled on a soy. It worked! He still nurses 90% of the time, but I give him a bottle or two daily. I also finally started him on cereal (I put it off trying to make this time last longer.) He loves cereal and I know we'll have to start baby food soon.

This week he has also been a rolling machine. I can't put him on his back without him rolling over to his belly. It's fun to watch, but he gets so flustered that he doesn't know how to get back to his back. He CAN turn on his back, he has done it since he was 2 or 3 months old, but now he has to remember how to do it. This just means he will be rolling all over and then crawling all too soon :(

Kilun got a bumbo for Christmas. While it's nice for me to be able to put him in whe I need to get something done, it's not really his favorite place. He likes to arch his back to try to get out of it. Just today he fell out twice while I was trying to clean up the kitchen :s Really, a lot of it is just that spoiled thing, and he just wants to be held. He doesn't like to lay down too much anymore and is really working on those stomach muscles to sit himself up. I don't think it will be too long until he can sit up on his own. Another :(

This year at for Christmas we had my mom and grandparents here (of course) and then Chris' parents and brother and his daughter came. We had a house full! The boys loved all of their gifts, especially the Wii.

Family Christmas Party

We had the Family Christmas Party at our church this year. We were very glad it was at ours because there ended up being a huge storm that day, causing a big accident on the freeway. The freeway was shut down causing all those people to be on Hwy 89. It took people 2 hours to get from Willard to Brigham, normally a 15 minute drive. We were happy to just drive across the street!Grandma & Grandpa eating soup with the Wellings and some Nicholas'

The kids got to play take their turn at the pinata

We played the reindeer balloon game. It was pretty funny.

Chaetun got these head and wrist bands in his White Elephant present. Luckily there were three set so all the boys got them. They loved them as well as the Christmas picture frame with a picture of Grace and Jim in it. They even put the frame up (with the picture of Grace and Jim) in their room on their desk. Nothing is a white elephant to them! They love junk!

Here's their picture frame with Grace & Jim's picture proudly displayed on their desk.

Temple Square

I guess we'll start back in December. This year I really wanted to take the boys down to see the lights on Temple Square because they haven't been down before. I know, I know,I'm a bad mom living in Utah and not taking my kids to Temple Square before. The last time I had been down to see the lights was when Chris proposed. It was crazy busy and we had Grandpa with us, so we didn't really get to wander as much as I would have liked, but we'll go back down at a less busy time and walk around. We rode the front runner down (that was really why Grandpa wanted to go).
The boys really loved looking at the Christus. I don't know what was up with Chaetun and his gangsta pose. We didn't realize he had done that until we downloaded the pictures. When we got back to the main trax station, we realized that we had to wait for about an hour for the train to get there. We tried to stay warm on the benches.

I know I've been such a slacker. There has been so much to post about in the last couple of months, but I just haven't had the motivation to do any of it. I still want to post about a lot of it thought, so in the next couple of days I hope to get a few new blogs done. Then I'll try to do it more regularly. I hope. At least I have a new cute background and header. It's a start.
