And you will notice that in each of those pictures he has a washcloth. We have to bathe him with 2 washcloths. One we will actually use to clean him with, and the other is for him to play with. Because no matter how many toys we put in there with him, he will always go for the washcloth. And what does he do with said washcloth? He sucks the water out of it. Gross, I know, but we can't stop him. He will dunk the washcloth in the water, and pull it up and suck on it, dunk it in again...he repeats this over and over again through his whole bath. The good thing about it I guess is that is cleans his mouth and nose, so it isn't as hard to clean them!
Here is another one just after bath. He is getting too big for his little hooded towels! We even have a robe that doesn't fit him. Why oh why is my baby growing up so fast?!
Here is one from today. I was upstairs working on a project for our ward, and I hear him at the bottom of the stairs (Melanie was downstairs watching him so I could get the video done). I look down the stairs and see this. So I thought "I have to get a picture!" How could I not! Just as I snapped this picture, he let go of the stairs and stood there for a second before grabbing the stairs again. I think that startled him, because he promptly sat down after that!
But he LOVES to climb on things! He will now climb OVER my legs if he wants something on the other side. The other thing he started doing was saying "mamamama" over and over and over again. It is SO cute and it melts my heart! I went downstairs and he saw me, grinned and started saying it. I went into the bathroom, and I could hear him out there crawling to the bathroom. He then started scratching at the door all while saying "mamama". Now, I know people will say that it is just babbling, and he doesn't know what he is saying, but he will only really say it when I am around, or when he is trying to get to me. I am trying to get this on video, but haven't had any luck yet. Hopefully soon!
Anyway, I should end this post soon. I have been feeling really sick lately, and we thought that it was pneumonia, so we went to the doctor, and I guess all I have is a severe sinus infection with a really bad cough. So I am on some medicine that is making me feel pretty loopy and tired. Good thing I don't have to drive anywhere! Haha...ok. I need sleep. Good night!

Ok, so I have had this video for a few months, and am now just pulling it off of my video camera, because my WONDERFUL dad helped me get it to work on my computer!! But about 3 months ago, I told of a video we had of Bubba laughing. Well here it is. It is kind of long, but WORTH it to watch the whole thing! I am trying to record more of him, so there should hopefully be more videos up of Bubba soon! Yay!!
Let's see..what else can I blog about. Today we drove up to Kaysville for a quick visit with my parents. So that was fun to surprise them and see them!
I have a new calling in the ward! It is YW Sports Coordinator. So this morning bright and early, I headed over to the church for Volleyball. I wasn't expecting anyone to show up for our team, but we had 6 girls show up! Enough for a team! Yay! So we played a few games, which was fun. I don't know how well I am cut out for this coaching thing, but we will see! I will try to get pictures of them next week. Anyway..
We have a very busy week this next week! There is so much on my list to do, that I think I might just have a meltdown sometime during it! I keep telling Sam that he needs to be prepared for when I have one...he doesn't believe me. So we shall see who gets the last laugh! Muahahahaha! Anyway, I think I am going to go to bed. So...have fun!

During that time, we have had parental rights, but not legal rights of him. And on Monday, that will all change! We will get all rights to him, and he will be like a "natural child" to us. (according to the papers) This also means that we will not have to have anymore supervisory visits, or home studies! I have been waiting for this for 6 months, and I can NOT believe that it is almost here! And then, we will be able to have his blessing, and be sealed to him for all eternity. Honestly, I am more excited for the sealing, but still excited for Court. And the fun thing is that Finalization will be ON SAM'S BIRTHDAY! So Happy Birthday to HIM!!
So..here are some recent pictures of Bubba. The next pictures will probably be after Court on Monday. YAY!!!!
He had a cold and was teething, so his nose isn't in the best condition for this picture!
Some more stuff that Bubba is doing...let's see..He has 2 more teeth. His top two teeth came through last week...so he has a total of 4 teeth now (at 6 months?!) He has started crawling. he will only move a little bit before getting back on his tummy. Probably because he scoots on his tummy faster than he can crawl! That and he has started pulling himself up if he is next to something. He can also sit himself up now. He is growing up SO fast! His favorite foods to eat are Squash, Green Beans, and Peaches. He is so funny when trying to feed him...I just about have to give him a bath after he eats!
Anyway...I will let this go, and will hopefully get to update again before Monday...if not, you will get a good post there! Yay!!!
