Best Day of the Year

Happy Birthday to T!!
This is my favorite day of the year because I get to spoil him and he can't do anything about it
A few things about my guy
- He is such a caring husband
- He is an amazing and patient dad
- His passion for what is does is admirable
- He has a zest for life and a loves to learn
- He kills the spiders and does the dishes
- Watch him eat a meal- it's cute how he eats like it's his last
- His abs are the best (sorry babe, but they are!)
- I love the way he ties his shoelaces
- I love how you get excited to tell me about what you are studying
- I love that you tell me I'm beautiful even though I have post baby body
- you love to shop with me
- You take care of stuff I don't want to think about
-You share my passion for traveling
- I love your dancing
- I love that we can look at each other and just get it
- I love how you make stressful situations fun (really I do!)
- I love how you run your electronics into the ground (check out his phone)

I just love you. Totally and Completely.
Thanks for being born and thanks for choosing me.

I never thought in my wildest dreams people would be so INSANE about breastfeeding
I love nursing Everett
I am lucky enough to be able to nurse as much as he needs
He is getting amazing nutrition and we are savings lots of money 
Yes they are negatives: I have to eat lots to keep my milk up, it is a pain when I am in public and have no idea where is a nursing room and working and nursing is a task I am going to tackle soon.

I was at the southtowne mall in Dillards looking for missionary clothes with my sister and mom
E was hungry
Found the bathroom, sat in a chair and put on my nursing cover
E was so worked up  he was having a hard time
then a lady (mid 50's) came into the bathroom
she used the bathroom and as she was exited entered the space where I was sitting (with lounge chairs etc)
She said "you really shouldn't be doing that here"

I looked at her- so frustrated with her and E's squirming
So I said the first thing that came to my mouth
she rolled her eyes and left

seriously? How am I offending her!? What I am doing does not affect her in any way, shape or form
in fact I am helping my child to be smarter than her (obviously)

I came home upset (so was my mom)
my sister sent me THIS
and check out this youtube video
they lifted my spirits

ok rant over
one last thing: I will not apologize for breastfeeding my baby. (PERIOD) 

Everett's Blessing

We blessed Everett on July 7th
T gave a beautiful blessing
We had so many family and friends there
E you are so very loved
Thanks to all our friends and family who came
Ps- I only had ONE picture taken of just me, E and T and it is on my sister in law's phone

All the family who came

I love 4th of July in Utah
We started out the day with these cute kids who came down from Boise

Then we headed up to Park City to spend the day with my familyi

E's favorite way to hang out recently

We saw a lot of this- Brandon loves his red velvet cake

We attempted a family picture in our festive outfits

Two Months

We took his two month pictures late at night
He was not too happy about it!

We sure do love this little guy
he is such a happy, easy going baby
he loves to cuddle and nap on anyone
his smiles are coos melt my heart
he has the longest eyelashes
the ladies are quite in love with him
he sleeps 7-9 hours a night 
he still eats like a champ
we have him on new medicine for acid reflux and he is doing great

He is 24.75" long (98 percentile) and weighs almost 11 pounds (17 percentile)
let's hope the Foutz gene skipped a generation!
