13 Months

David is 13 months old, (almost 14 now). He got these cute clothes from his Grandma Crofts for his birthday, so we thought we'd take pictures to show everyone how adorable our kid is. David is such a fun kid. He's into the "uh-oh" phase right now. The other day he even hid behind his crib then peeked out at me and said Peek-a-boo. He said it several more times that day, but not since. What a cutie!

Trick or Treat!

Who wouldn't give that kid candy?

check ot the spikes!

David at Trunk or treat

We had a great Halloween. I put what sewing skills I have to good use and made David a dinosaur costume. He was adorable! We went to a kids halloween party as well as trunk or treat, so David made out pretty well. Jason and I enjoyed sharing some of his candy. Hope you all had a happy Halloween too!

New Hair Cut and Funny Faces

David got his first real hair cut. It was getting really long in the middle like a mohawk, but still short everywhere else. We decided to try and avoid the comb-over bit and just cut it. He looks so handsome. When I tried to take his picture though he kept making funny faces. What a silly kid!

Our Little Pumpkin

David is a whole year old, so I decided it was time for some pictures. I tried taking his picture outside in the grass, but he ran everywhere and went crazy... running away from me and at me. I got a lot of pictures of the top of his head and his little bottom. So I got smarter and bought a couple distractions. The pictures turned out much better this time! We think he's adorable!

Why They're Called Toddlers...

David decided that he can now walk. One day he would take a few steps, and the next day he walked everywhere! He looks so cute and we're so proud so I thought I would share. Unfortunately he has a hard time walking when he is excited, so everytime I try to get a video he falls down alot. We still think it's impressive though.

Happy Birthday David!

I can't believe that David is one year old already! Time flies. We had a birthday party for him and Jason says its a good thing he won't remember this birthday because he was too spoiled. (Thanks to all the family and friends). We even made him a caterpillar birthday cake. Everyone was impressed with his ability to devour a cupcake. I don't actually think that he ate very much, he's just good at smashing.

Here's his amazing cake...

he isn't sure what to think of it. His food doesn't usually smile back.

Figured it out.

Lick your fingers clean.

What a finish!

We are so proud.

White Coat

Jason officially has his white coat now. Last Saturday the boys (Jason and Tyler) had "White Coat Ceremony" They basically say an oath, sign their name to an honor code, and get to 'officially' put thier white coats on. Doesnt' he look handsome!

Two little teeth

I told David I wanted a picture of his two little teeth to show his grandma. Then this is what he did. I thought it was hillarious. What is even funnier... now, is the story of how David got that second tooth. We were on the first leg of our expedition out here, Idaho Falls to Provo.Tyler an Jason were driving the moving truck and Jaime and I were in the car with the babies (David and Ashtyn) David picked that day to "teeth". He screamed and cried the whole way. Ashtyn was covering her ears poor girl. Then she got car sick and threw up alot..... a very lot. We stopped at a gas station to clean them up and calm them down wich took quite a while. The same gas station, come to find out later, that the boys had stopped at with a flat tire just a few minutes after we left. Then David cried more, til he made himself throw up... then cried more. We finally made it to Provo though. Jaime and Ashtyn decided they'd fly the rest of the way. (Can't blame them). Two more days in the car and one tooth later, we were here! We've loved it ever since.

Strawberry Pie

We are finally at our new house! Yeah! We love it here. Jason started school last week and to celebrate, David and I made strawberry pie. He was a great helper.

4th of July

I'm convinced this is what the 4th of July is all about. Sitting outside on the grass, eating watermellon.

Alot of people have been asking me what's up with our family lately, so here is the news. I graduated from BYUI wiht my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree last April and Jason graduated with a Bachelors in Biology in December. David was born on September 27th and is now almost 9 months old!!! I stay home with David while Jason works at Assisted Living for now, we'll be glad when that's over. Jason was accepted to medical school in Des Moines, Iowa. We well be moving to West Des Moines soon. We leave here July 28th, go to Provo and load up Tyler and Jaime (Tyler is going to the same med school, and living in the same apts), and arrive at our new home on August 1st. The boys start orientation on the 5th, so they'll be right to work. My 'little' brother Shaun gets home from his mission on July 18th. We are very excited to see him before we leave, and also glad family will be visiting. We can't believe it has been 2 years though. Besides that I really should be packing. I havn't started. We're sad to leave so many friends and family when we move, but we're WAY EXCITED to go!

New Toy

My Mom got David this toy (the stacking rings) and I hid it away for a while. I brought it out the other day and David loves it. Of course he doesn't stack them. He usually tries to knock them over before I can stack them, but that works. He is a boy. He also likes wearing them on his feet. It's pretty cute. Everyone should have one. Anything that can keep a baby occupied long enough for me to get something done is worth it.

lunch-time noises

When David doesn't like what I give him for lunch he either yells or makes all the noises he can think of. Here is one of his favorites!

Wednesday, June 11, 2008


David is now kind of crawling. Not on his hands and knees yet, but lets just say he gets wherever he wants. I decided the trick to learning to crawl is to have the right motivation. For David, the stereo is the best motivator, followed closely by my plants,elecrical cords, and the flashing green power button on the computer. (Basically anything he isn't sapposed to have). He's cute though, and alot happier now that he can get around. (Until I take the plants away that is).

Sunday Afternoon

Unfortunately the weather has been horrible, so no playing outside. We still had a nice weekend though. Here's David playing in his handsome sunday clothes.

Sock Puppy

What a cute little puppy! Jason put socks on David's ears and I thought it was just too cute.

Wednesday, May 21, 2008


This is Jason's idea of putting David to bed. Just kidding. David gets really silly when he is tierd and sometimes its more fun to play with him than to put him to sleep. Jason can always get him laughing.

Feeding Pigs

We went to Grandma and Grandpa's recently and the weather was wonderful. David got to play outside in the grass, wich he loves. He even helped Grandpa pick dandy-lions to feed to the pigs.

Baby Towels

So I had a couple of baby showers coming up and no money. I wanted to give a nice gift though, since they were for close friends. Here is what I came up with. I made these baby towels from one bath towel ($4) and some scrap fabric and embroidery floss I had laying around. They turned out great and were surprisingly easy. Just thought I'd share the idea!

Jason and David

David loves when Jason is home. Most of all, he loves to play. His new favorite is riding on Jason's sholders. He waves his arms around and hits J on the head. The other day Jason played yatzee with David and he thought that was great too.

Going for a Walk

We finally had a warm day last week and went for a walk. I think David's favorite part was playing with the velcro on his new shoes. We havn't gone again, since there is now more snow on the ground, but we can hardly wait!

David playing

David can now sit up. Yeah! He seldom topples over and is glad to finally be off his back or tummy. Here he is playing and showing off his smile of course.
