Chunky Monkey!

My little guy is growing like a weed! He's 9 weeks old tomorrow and is still just as huge as ever and smiling a lot (and eating a lot, too!). He's a good baby except at midnight when he starts crying and doesn't let off until 1 or 2 am. But then he sleeps practically all morning and won't wake up until mid-afternoon! I'm trying to switch his schedule around slightly so he'll sleep soundly starting around 9 pm. Good luck with that, right?

Riah had his 2 month checkup on Monday and they weighed and measured him. He weighs 13 pounds 13 ounces (and this was on a cleared-out system- he had just filled a diaper and hadn't eaten in a couple of hours) and is 24 1/2 inches long. Head circumference is 16.5 inches. Weight and head are 80th percentiles, length is 84th. Everything looks good with his health and he just gets cuter every day!

The Blessing of Uriah

Uriah was blessed on the 7th of March. I've been meaning to update the blog with what was said during the blessing but I have been busy with three kids! Finally, I find Riah in bed asleep and two girls in bed. The stars have aligned!

Uriah was blessed with strength, knowledge of Heavenly Father's love for him, help with obtaining his education. He will have health sufficient for his needs. He will have a desire to serve Heavenly Father and people will follow his example. He will understand the plan of salvation better than most. He will be delighted to serve a mission for the church, which will be an unusual mission, not standard to most missionaries. When he returns, he will meet someone to marry in the temple and will have a righteous posterity, and will have many blessings that only he will notice.

And, of course, now the baby's crying!

I'll update a little later with more of the details of the blessing, but I wanted to share some pictures of my adorable little man and our family right away!

Tape starts with... what again?

Conversation just now...

L: Mom! Rose can count to eleven! Eleven starts with A, right?

C: No, eleven starts with E.

R: (holding a giant roll of tape) TAPE starts with ELEBEN.

OK, maybe she doesn't exactly get the letters/numbers thing yet, but she's trying!
