Here's what we've been doing . . .

I realized today that it has been a whole week since I put something on our blog. So here is what we have been up to for the last few weeks. Craziness! Dax crashed his face into his bed last Monday and has a huge cut on his gums, but his teeth look okay. I didn't take any pictures of that--it was really gross. Seth has been throwing up this weekend. It has been so sad. I've never had an infant throw up, so I cry whenever he does it. Seth seems lots better today, so I hope we're on the mend. Mark is still hanging on to his cough. It hit the 2 month mark today (pun intended). I guess he is just going to live with a cough his whole life.

Despite all of the drama, we have been doing lot of adventures. Here are a few pics of our latest ones.

Elves at Gardner Village with cousins. (Cousin Winky wouldn't sit down!)

Ride on the Polar Express

Dax and Santa (he's not too sure about it!-- Neither is Santa!)

Mark and Santa (he's finally big enough to not be scared).

Seth and Santa (he's too little to care)

Going to the Live Nativity in Alpine

The best part of the Live Nativity

Driving all over to see Christmas lights. These are the lights at Christmas Street in Sugarhouse.

Gingerbread houses with friends. I realized after helping Mark that I stink at building houses.
Good thing Randy can help.

So excited for snow they went right out to shovel today! Dad will love it when he gets home.

Seth Starts Solids

Loving it!
We finally took the plunge and let Seth start some solid foods. He kept trying to get my food and would stare at us while we ate--we took that as a sign he was ready. And Seth is definitely ready. The first time we fed him rice cereal, he opened his mouth and swallowed it right down. Now I don't know about your babies, but my other kids have pushed it out with their tongues or not wanted to eat. So I was surprised that Seth took to eating so well. He opened his mouth and ate it all up with hardly any getting on him. Randy says I shouldn't be surprised since he weighs so much . . . eating is his thing.

Here are a few pics and short video of the little guy trying rice cereal. Since this video, he has eaten bananas, squash, and sweet potatoes. Seth definitely prefers to fruits and veggies over the cereal, but he'll eat it as long as he can protest the whole time.

The boys loved watching Seth eat.

Good eater!
