8 Months


:: Weight: 19.5 lbs (Robb calls him "Michelin Man" and I admit, there is a strong resemblance)   
:: Had his first haircut on June 29th (distracting him with a YouTube video playing on my cell phone is the only reason his ears are intact today)  
:: Loves splashing wildly in the bathtub
:: Discovered he can control the volume of voice and likes to whisper "da-da-da" to me when we're snuggling and will shriek happily at his toys and during quiet moments at church
:: Wakes up 3-5 times throughout the night (sadly, I think we're regressing in that area)
:: Likes to shrug his shoulders and dance (especially if someone joins him)
:: Prefers to be upside down
:: Had a bad first reaction to peas

:: Loves the earphones we got him after the fiasco of the Freedom Day parade 
:: Still no teeth
:: Waves good-bye to Robb as he leaves for work in the morning
:: Rolls around to get from point A to point B (it is no longer safe to leave anything on the floor)

Pioneer Day Classic

 Robb and I set fitness goals at the beginning of the summer: he wanted to run a 10K and I wanted to lose more baby weight (it's a good thing Colby is so cute).  He immediately found a race online, planned out a training regimen, and got busy.

His hard work really paid off.  Robb finished 2nd in his age group (so there's a medal for him somewhere but since we didn't realize how awesome he did until later, we didn't stick around to receive it).  He hit his goal pace of 7:50/mile and finished in the top 25 overall.  
 Randomly we bumped into my friend, Kristen, and her sister who were running the 5K.  I love Medfordites.
 Colbs and I being supportive of this amazing guy

And this woman is my hero.

Reader's Digest Version: July

With so many amazing things happening lately I'm just going to summarize the last couple of weeks or I'll never catch up.  Here we go:
Robb's parents drove down to Utah for our nephew, Matthew's, baptism (which I forgot to take pictures of) and we spent the rest of the weekend enjoying quality time with the Hays' clan.  Lilly and Colby met for the first time and she liked him until her Grandma started snuggling Colby and then a little jealousy set in.
 Our 4th of July started off with the Freedom Festival Parade. 
For a small college town, Provo put on a pretty impressive show.  Colby wasn't a huge fan of the gunshots, but once Robb covered his ears he enjoyed all the bright colors.
July 4th is the anniversary of our first date and while we had to give up a few traditions because of Colby (that man likes to be in bed by 7:00), we still went to Red Robin and reminisced about our magical date four years ago.
We wrapped up our evening by watching the firework show in D.C. from the comfort of our living room.
My brother's fiance, Emily took out her endowment in the Draper Temple on July 12th.  There's no better place than the Temple when your whole family is there and thanks to Em, our family is now complete.

 We held her bridal shower the next day.
And on July 14th, 2012 Jordan Michael Rigby married Emily April Swendsen in the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. 
 Such a beautiful couple

 It was a perfect day and I'm so happy to have Emily for a sister.
And finally, Robb turned 26 on July 16th.  Happy birthday, Sweetheart!
