Happy Birthday Grami!!

In honor of Grami's birthday, we decided to take pictures of Ezra holding a happy birthday sign. As you can tell, Ezra had other plans.

We love you!

Jordan and I love going to aquariums. We have held a membership to at least 1 aquarium every year since we have been married. For Christmas, I gave Jordan a membership to the (only!) aquarium in Utah- Living Planet Aquarium.

Since Miqui has been staying with us for a few days before she heads up to school, we decided it was time to take Ezra for his first aquarium visit. The aquarium is small but for a state that is completely land locked, it wasn't too bad. We all had our own favorite species. Miqui's loved the penguins, Jordan enjoyed watching the moray eel, I wanted to bring home the caiman or a sting ray and Ezra was fascinated by the sharks. Perhaps we have a future elasmobranchologist on our hands? :)

I forgot that I had my phone in my purse until after we got back to the car (duh Jessica!) so most of these pictures are from my phone.

My 4 month old is already taller than a full grown rock penguin! 

Aunt Miq thought that Ez needed a stuff animal to celebrate his first trip to an aquarium. Meet Splotch.. Ezra's newest best friend.

The Big Sister

Gwen was an only child for over a year and was used to being the center of our world. Then we had the nerve to bring home Ezra. At first Gwen wasn't too sure. She didn't know what this new addition meant or when it was going to go away. I think she has figured out that he is here to stay and that she might as well get used to it.

For the first time last Saturday we took Ezra with us to the dog park. I thought that once we got to the park Gwen would forget us completely, like she usually does. Instead, she would play with whatever dogs were closest to us. She would play for a few minutes and then come check in, checking to make sure Ezra was still in his stroller. We walked around the inside perimeter of the dog park (there is a cement path) for about an hour. Gwen continued to check in. After a while we sat down and I took Ezra out of the stroller. Several dogs (including a baby Great Dane) came by to say hello. Gwen continued to play but stuck fairly close by. A husky come over and began to smell Ezra and me. Apparently Gwen thought the Husky was smelling for too long because she came and very calmly, but with a definite "this is my baby" attitude, put her self between Ezra and the husky. Once the husky turned and left, Gwen trotted away and continued playing with the dogs. As much as she may miss being an only child, I think that as Ezra gets older  they are going to be best of friends .

Snuggle Bug

 Ezra is a little cuddle bug. He loves to sleep on Mommy or Daddy's chest.
