In August we got settled back in to our Spokane life.
It felt good to be back.
First things first- Nick got his grill.
The man has wanted a nice grill since I met him. He finally got enough birthday money over the summer to buy one, so within our first couple days back in Spokane he went and got himself one.
Look at that proud smile. We ate almost every meal off that grill for the first couple months we had it. I didn't complain.
We sure missed our friends, over the summer, so we just had to plan a pizza night reunion at Jaren & Callie's asap. It was so much fun to see everyone again! We especially loved getting all the babies together.
|Paige.Kensington.Beau. (missing Aisley)|
Beau is such a ladies man up here. He has all girlfriends. We love it.
Spokane has a super fun event once a year called Pig Out in the Park. Basically like a fair, minus all the rides. It's a huge party in the park with TONS of different food booths and live music...and best of all pumpkin doughnuts and scones!
We didn't get to go last year because I was just at the beginning of my pregnancy and the last thing in the whole world that I wanted to do was hang out in a confined area smelling hundreds of different foods all at once. Blah. Nick was heartbroken last year so this year we wouldn't have missed it for the world.
Stroller brigade! Mommy friends.
Don't let that sweet baby's face fool you^. As soon as we walked into the park Beau started screaming. I figured he was just hungry so I found a somewhat secluded corner and fed him. That worked for about umm 3 minutes. Beau threw the biggest tantrum I've ever seen and there was nothing I could do to calm him down. The loud music and insane crowds were just too much for my baby so we had to leave before the fun even started.
I didn't even get my pumpkin doughnut. :( Better luck next year.
Next adventure: Greenbluffs!
This went a lot better than pig out in the park. Beau was so happy the whole time. He loved being strapped to dad's chest and being able to see all the pretty trees.
Peach pickin' with the Sandbergs!
Greenbluffs is so gorgeous. One of the perks of living in a non desert state like, Washington.
In August, we also celebrated Beau's 4 month birthday!
We even got him a little present... a jumper toy!
We knew 4 months was a little early for these kinds of toys but our strong, active little boy always wants to be standing so we had a feeling he would love it...
We were right! :)
>>4 months is a super fun age. <<
So many new things!!
Beau learned to sit!
A little wobbly at first and only a few seconds at a time but he eventually got the hang of it.
He also got really good at grabbing things and enjoyed playing with his toys.
Trying to be like daddy with his Jordan outfit on and a weight in his hand.
That dumbbell rattle is just so fitting for my little stud.
Bath time finally became a fun activity rather than a scary obligation.
Don't bug me mom... I'm reading.
Those hooded towels. I can't breathe.
And Beau tried his first solid foods!
It took him a little bit to get used to but he loved it! Rice cereal- yum!!
The end of the month was baby time.
Destiny and I threw a shower for our sweet friend Julia.
Ezra came in to this world already being so loved and with a bunch of baby friends! We're so glad he's here.
And I can't go without mentioning the birth of Beau's best cousin-friend James Frederick Anderson!
He was born Aug. 30th to Nick's wonderful brother, Chris & sweet sister in law, Meg.
We love "Jimbo" so much and we are SO looking forward to the day that we can finally hold him and give him all our love.
Beau meeting Jimbo for the first time. He just had to give him a nice, big, slobbery kiss.
August also meant time for Nick to start school again. This semester isn't nearly as tough as last year because Nick has a much lighter load and I have this super handsome man to keep me company all day...
We keep ourselves busy by singing songs, reading books and making each other laugh all day long. There is nothing else I would rather be doing than spending each and every day taking care of this little cherub. And that's the truth.
What did I do to get the honor of being this boy's mom?
I've never been more proud of anything or happier in my life.
He is my everything.
I truly am the luckiest.
