Anson is 6 weeks!

Well, because I am a slacker of a Mom and forgot to do a post when our little man turned one month old, I decided that I should do one now. Can't Believe Anson is already 6 weeks old! He is growing like a weed and has changed so much already since he was born.

6 week stats: 9lbs 7 oz and 21 1/2inches long

Anson loves music, his binky (only when he needs it though), his mobile, his caterpillar and the pretty song it plays, his little fisher price chair, to take walks, and to stare at the clouds.

He's happiest when: he swaddled up tight for bed, his bum is clean, his tummy is full and when he's being loved and kissed and cuddled by his Mommy or Daddy.

Hey cute guy,

We think you have the cutest bulky cloth diaper bum on the planet!

We love your wide eyed stare, you are always so enamored by anything new or by looking at your Mom and Dad or any new face.

Your Daddy absolutely adores you and is already buying you trucks to play with for when you get bigger. Mommy adores as well, but she's always behind the camera.

We love you more than you realize sweet boy. Please don't grow up too fast.

5 reasons why my Grandpa Barlow is the best

He thinks my bulky cloth diaper bum is cute
He knows just how to hold me when my tummy hurts
He's good at snuggling
He's gonna take me fishing all the time when I'm bigger
He's gonna teach me how to make deals just like him when I grow up so I can be successful

Grandpa, I love you! Happy Birthday!

A great Day

We blessed out little Anson this past weekend in our home. Nothing against blessings that are performed at church, but the spirit that was felt at our house was incredible and I feel like it's so much more personal. Taylor's Dad conducted and said some beautiful words and then my grandfather gave a gorgeous prayer, followed by Taylor giving Anson his blessing, which were some of the most precious words that I've ever heard. I'm so grateful to be surrounded by worthy priesthood holders and so proud of my hubby and I know that Anson will be proud of his Dad when he gets to read those words one day. We had a house full of good friends and some of our family and some delightful food! Here are some photos from the day!
