it's for reals yo

no need to adjust your glasses or try to re-focus your contacts... what you are seeing in these pictures is for real

i actually just passed a gas station on my way home from the gym for 1.80! BOOYA!

yes, jayden is now taking baths sitting up all by himself!

but every now and then he'll pull out his ducky to bathe with. no little rubber ducky for this big boy; "go big or go home" is his motto.

out with uncle doe doe

we took joe (or joe joe when he was little which turned into doe doe, hence the title) out for his birthday last night and even though we put jayden in a highchair at home, this was our first time sitting him in a highchair in a restaurant.
it was a little bigger than the one at home, but he is very good at sitting up by himself and sat up very well all night, until we handed him his bottle. for some reason he can't tilt it up high enough; he just leans back until the milk flows into his mouth.
quinn wanted to see jayden's face when he put a slice of lemon in his mouth. the result: he loved it. no sour face, just the sound of really hard sucking.
jayden ate the whole lemon slice down to the rhine! i know sucking on lemon's is bad for your teeth, but are they bad for your gums? i guess dr.quinn would know wouldn't he.

always getting second place in intramural basketball has haunted quinn since he began college years ago, and last night was his chance to change everything. quinn is on a team with my brother and a few guys from the dental school, making a team of only 5 meaning they have to play the whole game every game without a sub. they are really good and so much fun to watch play together. last night was the tournament and they won their first game meaning they would have to play right after for the championship game. they were so tired and played a team that had a gazillion players. that didn't seem to matter. even only having 5 players and just finishing another game, they played incredible. we were behind 2 points with 18 seconds left. it was our ball, the ball was passed around, the clock running down, a perfect pass from my brother, the ball was shot, and..... BRICK!
we missed the basket and lost the game. second place once again. there's always next year.
jayden and another of his girlfriends hanging out at the game.

i was going to knit jayden a beanie to keep his head warm this winte
r but i think we'll use this hat quinn found.don't worry, we washed it.

so you know how thanksgiving is coming up, well, quinn and i are hosting our first THANKSGIVING this year and we decided to do some trial runs with the turkey before the real holiday. (it was probably just an excuse for quinn to eat turkey) but quinn and jayden decided to see who got the wishbone after eating the turkey.
we didn't set this picture up; jayden really won the wishbone. it was awesome.

how's that for randomness

picture overload

this past weekend quinn and i took way too many pictures of our favorite little boy and i just couldn't decided which ones to blog. i apologize for the overload of pictures.... but you have to admit that they are all so cute. did i mention that we love our little boy. maybe obsessed is a better word.

we think that jayden decided to put the moves on his girly friend reagan this weekend. i mean, it was pretty obvious. it started out innocent...
but quickly moved to hand holding, and eye gazing,
and finger sucking,
and even questionable hand placement.

since we don't have our utah buddies here with us to challenge us in a good game of settlers, we are very grateful that we have heather and jerrel out here...and especially grateful that heather beat quinn (the reigning champ).

jayden didn't exactly love the leaves. they were apparently very uncomfortable to sit on, but they do make for cute pictures.

even though he can do things like cover our adorable baby in leaves and beat me in settlers all the time, i have to mention how indredible my husband is. i don't think that i could be any more in love with him. he is so kind and generous, not to mention spontaneous and funny, oh and insanely good looking. i love his smile. i always wanted to marry a smiley man. it puts me in a good mood...just having him around puts me in a good mood. dang, life's good.

just having the usual dance party with jayden (except i think i was going a little overboard that day. he didn't seem to mind)
