10 months old!

Our little Dallin is 10 months old!

We love having him in our family. I love how when I am pregnant I can’t picture what our family will be like with another child, I can’t even visualize it…I don’t know who is growing in there! But when they are out, I can’t imagine life without them there…like they have always been a part of it.

This little guy is such fun to have around. Today we were at Gap and one of the guys who worked there came up and started talking to Dallin. Dallin held up his little hand and the guy took it and then he dove to the man! The Gap worker took him and then Dallin just laid down on his shoulder! They guy loved it. Said he wanted to cry :) Later while in another store the lady working there started talking to Dallin and he turned away and would have nothing to do with her. She said, “Oh, it’s his age. Kids at this age always go through this…” We didn’t want to tell her that we just witnessed him lunging toward a stranger in another store…she followed up with, “But that’s okay. You don’t want them to go to strangers anyway. The ones who do are the ones who get kidnapped.” Haha

Anyway, we love our sweetheart. I don’t want him to grow up and talk back or tell me I only have 3 more chances to be nice and then he’s leaving our family…Preston…I mean….. Or when I tell him to say thank you he responds with, “I never say dat.”…Ada…but we love ’em all, no matter how much sass they dish out. I’m sure I was a turd sometimes too. Okay, I am positive I was :)

I tried so hard to not wish the holiday season away and have it slow down so I could enjoy and take it all in…but looking back it seemed like it was over in an instant!

We went out to Utah and had a lot of fun for Thanksgiving with Shaun’s family. The cousin’s had fun playing together and we finally got a family photo of everyone while we were there…the Edwards family has grown quite a bit since our last family photo! The grankid picture didn’t come out ideal, but we still think it’s pretty awesome :)

December was a fun month while we got excited about Santa but really tried to remember Jesus and the real reason why we celebrate Christmas.  I was really excited because we put Christmas lights up on our house for the first time ever!! I loved driving up and seeing the house all lit up!

I am all out of words, I know we did a lot but I can’t remember…this is why I need to document our lives on here better! So I can remember what I do all day every day and why I feel so busy…but can’t remember what I was busy doing! I wonder, sometimes, why I keep up a blog but I guess I feel like if no one else read it, at least I can have a photo journal of our lives.

I just completed a blog book (from 2009-2012) and I can’t wait to get it in the mail…so that is why I keep it, right? Family history!

Also, sorry for the serious dump of pictures…

We even found a geocache…not on purpose…but it was still fun. We put in a movie ticket.

So there you have it, the 2012 wrap up! It’s a lot to take in…I realize there are probably around 50 pictures…hopefully less, but still, a great deal to look at. If you made it to the bottom, WAY TO GO, and thanks for looking! I hope you all had an awesome 2012 and are looking forward to 2013!!
