3 months!

Today Preston is three months old! It seems weird to me that he is that old already but at the same time it seems like he has been here forever and that he should be walking and talking already! He is one super cute crazy kid! Here is a picture of him in his cute pumpkin hat…and my new do! 100_0573

His head looks so little in that hat! I guess that what you get for having parents with pea heads! Oh well! I’m not sure what we are going to do for Halloween, maybe just dress up and hand out candy, but I think the only people who’ll come over are the Warrens and their two crazy kiddo’s. I am a big fan of dressing up though, so any chance I get I am all for it. I have an insane leather, fringe, crop black jacket that I discovered in my Grandma Strazzo’s closet. It is quite a jewel. Although I left all of my dress up clothes in my parents garage, this I had to bring with me…so I think I will be a biker chick and get some use out of it. I’ll post some pictures of me in the leather fringe and 1980’s black tapered jeans that fit like a glove…It’s one hideous outfit, but its the only time of year I can get away with it :)

Well, the baby is sleeping so I should probably do something productive before Shaun gets home so that he doesn’t realize that I am getting absolutely nothing done all day while he’s working :) I hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween!


Our little Ball Park Frank!

Our little hot dog!

I put on Preston’s Halloween costume this morning and just wanted to eat him up!! So cute! I think Shaun and I will be Ketchup and Mustard…if I can make or find costumes for that!  I will post pictures of what we come up with later.

Preston went to his first basketball game tonight. We went to the Marriott Center at BYU and watched the team play against themselves. Preston watched them go back and forth on the court. It seemed like he was actually paying attention, though I am pretty sure he wasn’t! Maybe one day he will be out there ;) Shaun hopes so…Anyway, it’s late, I am tired, and Preston will probably be up early in the morning! Good Night!


It’s been awhile…

100_0556.movSorry it has been so long since updating you all! Preston is starting to turn into a little boy…ok, so he isn’t quite that old, but he is starting to learn how to do a lot of different things! He rolled over a couple times, but he hasn’t since the first day he did it so I am wondering if maybe i propped him up a certain way and he just tipped over, I like to think he rolled, but oh well. He just started to find his toys and grab for them. It takes several tries to actually get them and hold on but he is getting there. It is so fun seeing him start to do new ‘tricks.’He has started to turn and watch the TV when it’s on, so when I see him staring at “How do I Look” or “What Not to Wear” I force myself to turn off the tube! He’s only allowed to watch conference and Sports center :)

Well, there are a few new pictures in our fall 2007 album on webshots…some from our 2 year anniversary adventure and just some other random ones…Shaun and Preston in their sweater vests getting ready for church…and we put up a wedding album too. For some reason people have been asking to see them so here they are! Well, we love you all and pray you are doing well! Drop us a line once in awhile and Marzee, it’s nice to know that you enjoy this…sometimes I feel like I am writing out into “cyberspace!” We hope you and your family are doing great!!

New Pictures!

Hi There! I put up a ton of new pictures…there are some from our trip to California and then some from when Preston was first born that I found on my parents computer. He has come a long way, wow, some of those newborn pictures are pretty scary.

We went to the doctor today for Preston’s 2 month check up and he looks great. He now weighs 12.2 lbs and is 23 inches long. He is in the 50th percentile for height and head size and 75th for weight. He was smiling and talking to the doctor…it was so dang cute!

Our trip to California was SO fun! The plane ride was fine. Preston was so good and he just slept most of it. Then while we were back there he got to see 4 of his great grandparents and a great aunt and uncle…and several cousins. We went up to apple hill and got sick off of caramel apples, apple cider milk shakes, and caramel and chocolate covered marshmallows. It was so fun to be up at apple hill. It really felt like fall!

Well, now we are back in Utah and back to our day to day schedule. We were happy to see Shaun at the airport, and he did a great job of cleaning up the house for us :) I never really know what to write on here…so forgive me if I bore you most of the time. I try to add picture so that you will all keep coming back because I know it isn’t my writing skills that you are all so impressed with. I hope you are all having a great day! Love you.
