4 months...

A couple things about our little beck at 4 months...

-such a mellow little guy..hardly ever cries. seriously.

- Has mastered rolling over, goes back and forth between his tummy and back all day long!

-just discovered his feet and LOVES them! He is always holding them. The other day he fell asleep holding his foot next to his face:)

- Sucks on his big toe like a thumb!

- Cat napper- loves to take 20-30 min naps throughout the day.

- is down to one feeding during the night:)

-still sleeps in his mommy and daddy's room:)

- smiles all day long, but it takes a LOT of effort to make him laugh. We have only heard him giggle a couple times, its almost impossible!

-babbles pure boy noises all day funny!

- was just diagnosed with eczema:( that awful curse would come from ME! Sorry becky boy:(

- has a gazillion nick names. becky beck, becky boy, beckster, beckers, becks, the list goes on. Ivy's new nickname for him is "little bumble bee." She is pretty proud of her name for him and thinks it is the cutest thing ever.

We love this little guy to pieces!

saying our goodbye's:(

So I am pretty sure that I haven't even mentioned that my sister is going on a mission to Sydney Australia! I was in denial that she was actually leaving for a long time, but she went through with her plans. As sad as I am to have my only sister and one of my best friends gone, I am excited for her. She is going to have amazing experiences that will change her life. Yesterday we said our goodbye's to Ashley for 18 months. At about 12:45 p.m we pulled into slot #18 to drop her off at the curb. There were elder's waiting at the curb to greet and take her bags as soon as we pulled in. She was very weepy, as were we. It was really really REALLY hard, but very sweet. We know that she will be an amazing missionary and bless the lives of many people in Australia!

On a funny note, as my mom and I were saying our last goodbye's a police officer walked up, and told us that it was time to get moving, that they had other cars that needed to pull in. So we dragged our feet into our car as he waved us along. We kind of felt like we were at the airport. no joke. So as soon as we pulled out of the spot, my mom asked me to pull out of the mtc, loop around and drive through one more time so that she could watch all of the missionary's again. So I followed her commands. As i pulled in again, the same officer was still hurrying people through the parking lot, and walked up to our car. He totally remembered us from a few min before, and said "What are you ladies doing!?" my mom quickly told him that we were not parking that we just wanted to drive through." He got pretty upset and said "well DON'T drive through." hahaha he was so ticked, but we just laughed..thanks old dude for making us go from crying to laughing in no time. My mom has already made me do an mtc drive by tonight, and told me that we will be doing another one in the morning before I take her to the airport. She also instructed me that I must do a drive-by every single day up until I move. will do mom:)It's only been one day, and I miss her terribly. I just want to shoot her a quick text asking how she is doing! can do. cant wait to get an email from her!! If you are interested in following a blog that I have set up for her head on over here

soldiers hollow

Last week my fam headed up here for their spring break. I am pretty lucky to see them as often as I do, but one week is just never enough. We had so much fun while they were here. One day we went to soldiers hollow in midway and went tubing. It was a BLAST...especially since there was hardly anyone there. The kids had so much fun! They let us all go down at once, and I am not gonna lie, I wasn't sure that we were all going get to the bottom in one piece.Hearing my mom's scream/laugh was worth it alone. I cannot believe that we have lived here for almost 3 years and had never been. The best part of this place...they have a little tube lift that attaches to your tube, and pulls you all the way to the top, so no hiking involved. def my kind of snow activity. After we were done, we thawed out in the lodge by the fire for a very long time. We don't handle the cold very well.

ebony and ivory!?

Sometimes its really hard for me to believe that these two kids came from the same parents. I mean look at their skin colors!? I guess Ivy did recently go on a cruise, and beck has seen the sunlight maybe 5 times in his life, but still! I have people come up to me all the time and say "oh she must have your husband skin." WRONG! I know it is really hard to believe, but i assure you, the olive skin actually comes from ahem me. I took this pic the other day, while we were loungin around the house so please excuse my daughters attire.
