Well, My goal was to write every week, but last week was too busy. So, two weeks ago I went to a week long lactation educators consultant course. And since Jacob is a nursing baby he got to come with me all week. There was probably about 100 people in the course all women expect one, and Jacob was a center of attention during breaks and lunches. Everyone loved him. He did so well it was a 40 hour course, and for being 6 months old he did very well. Then last weekend we went to see my parents and we went to the Box Elder County Fair. Jacob had never seen so many animals. Saturday we went to an open house for some dear elderly friends of mine, the Kelly's, who are moving to Texas. I was a little emotional as we said good bye. They are very wonderful people who have been very influencial in my life.

This week Jacob got a booster seat, and now he sits up to the table with us. This is much easier than trying to balance him on my lap while I feed him. We were able to attend a very special sealing of some friends in our ward. They were sealed and then their daughter was sealed to them. She is 10 and had been wanting to be sealed to her parents for awhile. After the sealing she sang I love to see the temple in the sealing room. The Spirit in the room was unforgettable. Well until next week.

6 months!

This week Jacob reached 6 months! He is growing so quickly. At his 6 months apt he weighed 15 lbs 4 oz, and he was 27 .5 inches tall. He is 15 % for his weight and 80 % for his height. He loves to do push ups, roll over, eat, drink from a cups and many other things. He loves to dance. For his six month birthday, I made a cake. We sang happy birthday, we made a video with Jacob dancing. Jacob and I went to visit Cami at Snow college and spent the night with her. Jacob did very well traveling for the 2 hour car ride, he didn't cry at all. It was Jacob's first night away from his daddy but he did pretty well. I love being a mother, life is great.

Grandpa Carlson's 80th

This weekend we celebrated Grandpa Carlson's 80th birthday. Friday night while the "kids" went out to dinner the grandkids had a little get together at Carole and Wayne's house in Bountiful. This yesterday August 9th we had a picnic at a park in Centerville, and then we went to the Bountiful temple to do sealings. It was a great day. Next to Grandpa, Jacob was the "main attraction". He has a lot of fans, he was the newest member of the family present.

This summer has been fun. Jacob loves swimming. We take him swimming in our pool often, and he seems to like it more everytime. We went to a family reunion up at Snow Bird. We went on the Aline Slide, the zip ridder, and we went for a little hike. We went to Bear Lake, and we just got back from a trip to Anaheim, CA. While we were in California. We visited some of Ivan's family from Peru who live close to Riverside. We went to visit some of the people I taught on my mission, that was awesome. We also went to the ocean which was wonderful. I love the ocean. It has a way of letting you release all your cares, and worries and feel rejuvenated.

We went up to Helena, MT for Memorial Day to visit my sister Heather and her husband Nick. We had a great time. I think our favorite part was a boat ride we took called the Gates of the Mountain. It was neat because I was right along the Louis and Clark trail. The scenery was amazing. We even saw a bald eagle in the wild. It was Jacob's first boat ride.

Our little one

Having a baby and watching him grow has taught me to appreciate the simple joys of life. I love how excited he Jacob gets as he splashes water, or hears a new sound, or tastes something new. I can't believe he is almost 6 months old. He is growing up way too fast. I love being with him, and watching him learn new things everyday. He has 3 teeth on the bottom, and one just started to poke through on the top. He loves to roll over. He loves to give hugs and kisses. He is our little bundle of joy. Life is wonderful.
