It's been a busy summer and fall. Life with Brigham couldn't be better! He is such an angel baby and has now been sleeping through the nights since around mid-august (at about 2 1/2 months old). We feel so lucky to have him as part of our family and in our home.
I'll try to make a quick synopsis of the best things of the last few months so you don't have to read forever.
Mid-August we went down to Lake Powell. We were a little worried about how Brigham would do down there, but we were pleasantly surprised when he continued sleeping through the night while we were there. We were also happy to see that he wasn't completely miserable in the life jacket that he had to wear while on the boat. Don't get me wrong, he didn't love it, but he dealt with it surprisingly well.
Brig looked like such a stud in his sunglasses! What a cutie pie!
He also didn't seem to mind swimming in the lake with Daddy. Thank goodness for baby sunblock!
On Labor Day we got to spend the day with Jared's brother and sister-in-law, Jason & Sally, and their one-year-old. We had a great time at the Hogel Zoo.
The latest big developemental step for Brigham has been that he's started rolling over. (Although he's only done it a handful of times so far.) His first roll was from his back to his tummy and was on September 16th. We were so shocked and thrilled to see it!
This picture was taken right after he rolled over for the second time that first day! He was so proud of himself! Isn't he handsome!
We've also taken the leap and have hired out a company to come in and finish our basement for us. Construction started the last week or two of September and should be done by Thanksgiving. We are so excited to see how it all turns out and to have it all finished!
As of this week it is now sheet-rocked. Yipee!
Well, that's about all for now. We are really excited for Halloween to come along and to dress Brigham up for the first time. What a huge smile and a happy, happy kid! Stay tuned to see what he'll be for Halloween!
We love you all!
