Life as we know it...

Last Saturday James completed his 2nd St. George Marathon! Rachel, and our friends Dave, Crystal and Marci made the trip with us and ran the race too. James' cousins - Billy, Jen, and Tara ran also. We had such a fun weekend! James finished, beating his last year's time by 15 minutes! I'm not going to say anymore because James needs to post about this... BUT I am proud James put his number right-side-up this year!

Saturday night I had my first Girls Night Out since Koby was born. It was so fun! Crystal is Donny Osmond's hairdresser. Saturday night she texted him and said we were in Vegas if he had any extra tickets. After we debated on whether or not to leave the husbands and kids, we went.We had to practically run to make it on time, but I am soooo glad we went! It was an awesome show! It was my first one so I don't have much to compare it to, but it was really really good. My only regret is my mom missed out - She would have DIED! I wish she could have gone.

Here are some pictures with Donny and Marie...

Yes this is my hand, and YES Emily is that excited! haha.

Did I mention we got high fives in the middle of the show and Crystal got a hug? AND we had amazing seats? AND we got to go back stage and meet them?!

This might be too much info, but for my journaling purposes...

Koby is 8 months! And holy cow is he a fun kid! He is a jibber jabber! He says "Dadda", "Mamma", and his new one is "Woah" - The other day I was watching Ty and Koby kept hearing Ty and I saying "Woah" and now he says it all day long! I think other kids help babies advance quicker! He also shakes his head in a no motion alot. He understands the meaning of "monkey", "doggy", "where's daddy", "go get him/her", "come here", and for the most part "no"...Not sure he really cares I'm "Mamma" though, haha. BUT he does LOVE his mom!

He is a mover. I have no doubt he will be walking in a month. He is solid on his feet and walks the length of the couch-holding on. He finally realized about 2 weeks ago that his speedy, little army crawl was not as efficient as up on his knees! Crystal loaned us Ty's old walker and Koby walks all over with it. I haven't been able to get a picture, because I'm too busy rescuing him, but he does pullups on our chairs and table. He is going to be a handful! He gets a bump or a bruise on his head every day!

(Ty and Koby up to no good of course!

I just looked back over this and realize that James is right... I use way too many exclamation points!

Also, I am light-haired again. I had fun being a Brunette, but for Rachel's wedding I went back. I did like it brown, but it feels good to be back, looking like my little Koby.

Hey guys, sounds like things are going pretty good for you. Koby is so cute I can't believe he is already 8 months old. I can't even imagine Brighton any bigger than he is, but I am excited for it! Good luck with the walking.
