Our Baby

Posted by Picasa

Our Crazy Lives

I thought once I got down here that life would settle down a bit. But, it seems even though I think I don't have a lot to do I am always busy! It has finally cleared up the last few days and we were able to go swimming. Zenock loved the water. He had so much fun and just kept smiling. By the time we got home, he was exhausted and just slept.

He is so much fun and I can't believe how big he is already. Although, everytime we go to the store I am reminded that he isn't big... "He must be a new one" and "He is soo little." People are shocked when I tell them that he is almost 4 months old! I thought people in Utah were friendly, but it seems everywhere we go people just come up to us and start talking about the baby and asking questions. I have had many long conversations with complete strangers. I guess that is your "Southern Hospitality." The program we are in has been great! All of the other people are our age and it has been fun to get to know them and to be around them. Speaking of the program, it is such a great opportunity. If anyone is interested in applying for next years program and wants more information let us know. All I can say is that it is totally worth it. You can check out more information on the website: Also, just to let anyone who is thinking of calling me know... I lost my cell phone at Target the other day. It is a long story with a big bruise... which I'll have to share another day. For now if you need me call JC's or just e-mail me. I'm hoping to get a new one in the next week or so. I hope this finds everyone happy and enjoying their summer! Zenock was in such a good mood the other night, we took a bunch of pictures. Enjoy!

Those of you who know JC's obsession with Peter Pan should love this. I couldn't help myself. I had to put this picture on. Need I say more... It stopped raining today and there is blue sky. YAY.

Wow... I can't believe Zenock is already three months old. He is so much fun and so cute. He is such a happy baby. He smiles all the time. For the last month he has tried to stick his whole fist in his mouth to suck on it. Sunday, he finally figured out how to just stick his thumb in his mouth. We were so proud.
We are here... and finally moved in. I now have a moment of peace while Zenock is sleeping to do something. (This doesn't happen often.) For those of you who don't know... JC got a new job with the Department of Defense and we are now living in Texarkana Arkansas. It is right on the border of Arkansas and Texas, hence the name. We live about half a mile from the state line. We will only be here for a year while JC goes to school to get his MBA, we will then be moving wherever they send us. JC's first day was yesterday, which he said was pretty boring - processing papers, etc. Zenock and I are living a charmed life... at least we will be as soon as it stops raining. (It has rained everyday since we have been here.) Right now we just spend the day playing, taking walks, and taking naps. As soon as it stops raining, we hope to take Zenock swimming for the first time. Our apartment has a swimming pool. (Zenock's dream come true... he loves water.) When JC gets home at night, we get to go golfing and I get to drive the golf cart. (My dream come true) We live on a golf course, which is of course... JC's dream come true. (He gets unlimited free golf.) So far, we have loved it here and only cried a couple times because we are so far away from home, family, friends, Sunday dinners, and baseball games. But it has been fun to meet new friends, attend multiple ward parties, and enjoy being a family. We miss you all.
