Chandler – 8 Months Old

I love you through and through… I love your happy side, your sad side, your silly side, your mad side…

I love you through and through… yesterday, today, and tomorrow too.  (Bernadette Rossetti-Shustak)

Here is what Chandler was up to this month:

– Walking Daddy out to his car in the mornings and waving “bye-bye”

– Going to Top Golf for Father’s Day with Mommy, Daddy, Grandpa and Mimi

– Swimming

– Reading books with Mommy (we are also still doing the BofM365 at bedtime)

– Loving bath time

– Chasing the cat around the house

– Giving open mouth Kisses *Muah!

– Attempting to walk along the couch

– Spending a week a Grandpa and Grandma’s house with Mommy for Grandma’s birthday and the 4th of July

– Getting his 4th tooth while at Grandpa and Grandma’s. This made for a grumpy/feverish little boy for a couple days.

– Copying and Mimicking more and more daily

– Drinking out of a straw

– So much more!!

LOVE this Adorable Baby

Daddy sure missed you when we were gone for a  week. You two were so happy to see each other. I love watching Daddy and you play and interact.

He would stand up all day if he could

Happy 8 months little one. Mommy loves you so much! xoxxo


Chandler – 7 Months Old



Seven months ago you were born. You came into this world loved by your parents and your Daddy and I continue to love you more and more each day.

Chandler you are a joy in my life. I love reading to you. I love laughing with you. I love watching you anticipate my actions. I love your crawl and determination to pull yourself up on everything. I love seeing you interact with your Daddy – you love him so much. Chandler, I love watching you discover all that this world has to offer you! You and your Daddy are my world. I can’t imagine my life without you!

Happy Seven Months, Beastie! (I watched Maleficent this week….) Mommy loves you!

Nightly Reading with Chandler

Since the first of January, I have been reading the Book of Mormon. On Instagram (and other social sites) there is the “BofM365” postings. These daily postings include reading assignments that will enable you to read the entire Book of Mormon in a year. Every evening when I lay down with Chandler to feed him before bedtime I turn on the assigned reading on my phone. It is an easy habit I am developing and the daily readings aren’t too long so it is manageable. Hopefully this is a habit we can keep up for years to come.

Fevers Are No Fun

I woke up in the middle of the night to my baby moaning and it is definitely different than waking up to him trying to find something to eat. It was scary and broke my heart. Later that day my older brother, Cory and I were talking and I told him that I knew Chandler would be ok, but it is hard to see him that way and not be able to help him. He replied with, “Even when they are older you will still feel that way.” The love I have for Chandler continues to amaze me and I am sure it will continue to grow as he grows.

Eric, Chandler, and I were staying with my parents for the weekend. We were planning on going to church Sunday with the family. Harlo and Chandler were both going to be blessed at church. In the middle of the night Chandler woke me up and he was so warm and just moaned. I stayed up all night with him, it was hard. I was sad, tired, and frustrated that I couldn’t comfort him and take away his pain. I can not imagine how it must feel to experience a fever for the first time. Eric went up to my sister, Rachel’s house around 5:30 am and got a thermometer. Once the fever was confirmed, Eric and I decided to stay at my parents house with Chandler while the rest of the family went to church.

We stayed over for lunch then left for the three hour ride back home. I was worried it would be a horrible trip. But Chandler thankfully slept most of the time. (I even got to enjoy another Red Licorice Eegee. Seriously, that flavor is amazing! Hopefully it will come out again next year!)



Monday, Eric went to work and thought he was coming down with whatever Chandler had. I spend the day holding Chandler and cuddling him. I remember him giving me a little smile and it making my day. Tuesday, Eric and Chandler where both home sick. Eric with a fever, Chandler with a cough and trying to recuperate.

The only good thing that comes from sickness is cuddles <3

Wednesday is here and they both seem to be a little bit better than yesterday. The night was rough for Chandler with his cough. As I was half asleep holding him upright so he could breathe a little better he grabbed my finger tightly. It is worth it!

This afternoon my boys are sleeping and I am grateful for them in my life. I love them so much. (Yes Eric, I love you!!)  I hate seeing them sick and I pray that this sickness leaves our house as soon as possible.

Sickness Sucks!

CHANDLER – 3 Months Old

Yesterday after Church, Chandler was being my little model. It is amazing how his plaid collared shirt makes him look so much older than I want him to be! He is just about three months old and has turned my world upside down. Going from working 45-50 hours a week to a stay at home mom is a bit of a lifestyle shock but I am so happy I get the opportunity to stay home with him. I love cuddling, seeing his smile, knowing I can comfort him, and watching him discover life every day.

Lunch Time Happiness

Eric came home for lunch today and Chandler was so happy. It truly makes my heart happy to see how much love Eric has for his son, Chandler. I can not believe Chandler is almost 3 months old! Where has the time gone?
