Cool September

His bright smile, he really wanted to get me to give him the camera.
The stairs he has conquered, heaven help us all.
Playing outside.

Jayden after his bath getting ready to wrestle us so that we can't get his diaper or PJ's on.

He loves baths!

Playing in the rain, he loved every minute of it.

It has been a tough week. Jayden has been teething pretty bad, several at once, and he now has a bad cold. We can't keep the kleenex close enough. Poor guy. We had given him medicine that made him loopy and he feel today and cut his chin. I feel horrible! He is our joy and we are having a blast. Colby had a tough test today, he did well. We are just going through the routine hoping for a slow winter to come.

Crazy Days

On a walk.

The door is so tempting for him.

Our piano star. Thank you, thank you very much.

This shows his teeth.

It has been raining the last few days and Jayden and I are going pretty house crazy. Good luck this winter! At the same time Jayden is teething pretty bad. When this is over he will have 8 teeth. Obviously he is learning how to use his teeth and is leaving his mark on his books, binkys, CD covers, etc. He has also learned to use his hight to explore things. The pictures show him at the piano, the front door, he can now open my bedside table and pulls out all my chapsticks! Never a dull moment.

Colby is busy at school. His classes are pretty intense and last week he had to do 15 hrs. in our clinic care. He has a dermitology book that he keeps trying to find new pictures in to gross me out, it works :) He is leaning towards something exciting in the field, the clinic was pretty slow. Colby and I have a babysitter this weekend, what are we doing? We are going to the adult session of stake conference. It is a great cheap date.

So I have been thinking politics lately. I wasn't too excited about either canidates and I was thinking about not voting....Colby was shocked. But, I really like Sarah Palin. I don't know why but a Mom of five can do anything! The sass she has too is pretty fun. Is it bad to vote for a president because you like the V.P.?

Labor Day in Ohiopyle

This is Baby Grant, Amy, Jayden, Abby, Ashton, Liz and Brooklyn. The guys didn't want to be in the picture.

Jayden didn't like the cold water. He would cling to Colby when he tried to put him in.

Here is the slide and the girls going down.

Colby and Matt on the bike ride.

This is Grant and Jayden getting ready for the ride. For the first few minutes Jayden kept trying to touch him. Grant was pretty cool about it.

This Labor Day was a lot of fun. We went with some friends to Ohiopyle state park in Pennsylvania. It has bike trails, a river to swim and a natural rock water slide. First we all went on a bike ride, the trail was great and Jayden rode in a bike trailer with his bud Grant. We then had a picnic and went swimming. The swimming didn't last too long because Jayden didn't like the cold water but he liked the part where he got to crawl around in the sand and dirt. I don't think he swallowed too much! Then we hiked to the water slides and the adults took turns going down. You had to push yourself down sometimes but it was fun.

So Jayden has a new thing. He tries to talk and grunt and he sounds like he is speaking Chinese. He even waves his arm when talking so that you know he is serious. It is so fun. One of these times I am going to actually catch it on camera.
