Here are a few random pictures of Koby. He is so funny lately. The other day I went to pick him up from the babysitters and he gave me hugs and kisses. It was so sweet and makes me want to cry...tears of joy of course. He has been trying to learn to "jump" if that's what you call it. I love him so much!

Cute kid, with lots of bruises always.

Koby got a sugar puff stuck well in his nose. He thought it was funny!

My sweet little Koby smiling away!

Kelepolo Happenings

Well Im not sure why but my computer won't let me download pictures right now so mom I will have to put some on here another day...This week we got to go to the doctor and suprise we got to see our baby via ultrasound. Everything looks good and the baby is growing like it should. That is such a miracle to me that a tiny little body is growing and forming tiny hands and a perfect face.
On Tuesday Kaleb came home sick with the flu, it lasted for at least 2 days and of course I contracted it as well. So far Koby hasn't gotten sick so I'm just hoping that he doesn't. It was really hard to take care of Koby with both of us being just sick, not wanting to move off the couch. Poor Koby, he was probably so bored. Lets just say there were hundreds of tiny cracker crumbs on the carpet floor.
Koby is being so silly, lately he is really into his books and will look at them for at least an hour which for an almost one year old, is really good. It is so fun when he laughs and plays with you. I love his cute smile and his funny laugh. We have this stone hearth in our house and he keeps on standing up on it. I don't know how many times I've told him "no, no." He is such a boy!
Well, I'm sorry about the boring blog with no pictures, I will try again later. Till next time...

Fall Canning and a little bit of a tangent

Recently I have been really into canning. Not that I've done a ton but I am learning. A sweet lady in our ward let me pick some of her green beans and they turned out so pretty, I think. I also picked some cucumbers from her garden and got to can some relish. This was a lot of work but well worth it. One day I went over to Marci Haws house and canned applesauce and apple pie filling. The apples were so sweet we didn't even add any sugar to the applesauce. I remember helping my mom can things growing up and didn't really think anything of it but now that I'm a mom and working on food storage it really changes my perspective. I love how it feels when you put the month and year on the lid and proudly store them in you pantry. I was thinking about all that the pioneers went thru to even fix a meal and I feel like we owe it to them as sisters in zion to can and try our best to be resourceful and thrifty. I don't mean to be all mushy but I feel strongly about my women ancestors. I want them to look down on me and feel proud that I am their posterity. I want my kids to know how to make bread. I want my kids to come home from school to a warm plate of cookies and milk. I want all my kids friends to think I'm a good cook. I don't want my kids to grow up eating eggo's (or whatever they are called). I am a young mother and for that I am grateful because I have awhile to practice. I am just learning and hope to become better. I just have strong feelings for this, I want to thank my ancestors for what they went thru and for what they stood for. They were hard working women, who didn't just throw some pop tarts in the toaster. I hope I can be more like them.

Long Enough

Alright, its not that I haven't wanted to post, its just that the longer it goes the less motivated I am and the more behind I get. Well I am excited to announce that Koby is going to be a big brother. I can't believe it. They will be 17 months apart. Of course I think it would be perfect to have a baby girl but I would love it for different reasons if it was a boy. Life is good and we are happy.
