7 Months

Time goes by way too fast. We can't believe little Nix has been in our family for almost 7 months! It almost doesn't seem fair that they change so much in such a short amount of time. Don't get me wrong, I live for the fun new things he does every day, but it's sad that he'll never be as little that day as he was the day before. Stop growing!
We have enjoyed him so much. He does so many fun things and has such a great desire of independence (just like his Dad). He loves to try and feed himself with his bottle. He loves bath time, peek a boo, being tickled, the "popcorn popping" song, playing with his dad, spitting, bouncing in his Johnny Jumper, chewing on EVERYTHING, and anything that lights up or moves. He is so much fun and is already such a little boy. I'm honestly terrified for when he gets more mobile. I swear I need duct tape to hold him down during diaper changes and putting on clothes. This kid loves to be naked!
I'm not too worried that crawling will come too soon. He HATES being on his tummy. He also hates being taken out of his carseat. He can't stand peas, green beans, or being distracted by any other food while he's trying to play.
He's a crazy little man, but we love him! This past month we were blessed to go visit my family in Michigan.  Jason surprised me the day before my birthday and I got to surprise my parents on my birthday. It was so fun!  My Mom just finished radiation treatment for breast cancer so it was amazing to see her doing so well after completing her treatment.

He did SO GREAT on the plane!  We got so many compliments on what a good little baby he was for the 3 1/2 hour plane ride.

After we got back from Michigan, we made a trip up to Idaho for Easter.  We had so much fun seeing all of Jason's siblings.  I feel so lucky to have such a wonder in-law family.  They are all so great!  We got to see our oldest niece, Ellie, get baptized.  Later that day we had the honor of hearing Breanne sing in her senior recital.  Wow, that girl is talented!  Nix was so enthralled the whole time, I was so glad he loved it so I could enjoy every second too.

Nix enjoyed his first easter.  Unfortunately, I'm a terrible Mom and didn't take any pictures of him and his Easter basket.  There's always next year, I guess...

Bunch of weirdies 

Love love love

My cousin, Xan, went in to the MTC shortly after we got back from Idaho.  I was so lucky to have her stay with me and have the opportunity to drop her off at the MTC.  Watch out, Philippines, Sister Marcucci is the bomb!  I love this girl so much.  She is going to be the best missionary!

Gorgeous girl

We've just been having so much fun with our families and our little man!  We are so excited to go up to Cardston for 8 weeks and then to San Jose for 8 weeks for Jason's internship with Ernst and Young.  We are looking forward to lots of adventures! I recently had a septoplasty and sinus surgery on my nose.  After that, I'm really looking forward to some vacationing!  I'm so grateful my Mom was able to make it out here to take care of Nixon while I recovered.  She is the best and Nix sure does love his Mimi.  

Out for a walk lookin' awesome

One last thing....

I'm dying to get some family pictures taken.  I stumbled accross a Cardston photographer who is doing a mothers day giveaway.  I'm REALLY hoping to win so we can finally get some family pictures taken this summer.  Wish me luck!
