My little Koala Bear

I cant stand it...Easton is just TOO CUTE! He will be 6 months old on the 25th (can you believe it!?) SOOO i did a little photoshoot of my handsome little man in the koala hat i made him...I recently taught myself how to crochet and am addicted! His nickname these days has been Koala Bear or Koalawalla :0) Does anyone else have a million nicknames for their kid/kids?...Eastons nickname changes all.the.time ;0) Anywho, I just love these pics of him!...I couldnt narrow it down to just a couple pictures to post SO you get to see the many faces of Easton ;0) and if you look closely, you might catch a glimpse of his two little bottom teeth coming in ♥ Enjoy!

Man, i love this boy! ♥

Its about TIME!

I think its about time for an Easton update dont you? Its only been a couple of months (Im such a slacker! ;0) Its crazy how much a little person can change in just a couple of short months but one thing has remained the same... Easton is still the sweetest most lovable huggable baby in the whole world! :0)

 Lets see,  At his last doctors appt (a couple months ago) he got some more shots (BOO!) and his 'stats' were off the charts...he was 98th percentile for height and 96th for weight...hes my little linebacker ;0)  Easton also started eating solids a couple of months ago...he would just STARE at me while i ate so i thought id give it a try...and i must say, he is definitely a fan of food! ;0)

 So far he LOVES sweet corn casserole, sweet potatoes, sweet peas (anything with the word SWEET in hims momma ;0) carrots, any kind of fruit and bananna oatmeal. Hes not a big fan of any meats though but i dont blame the guy...meat baby food smells a little too much like CAT FOOD to me! :0) SO about a week ago i got a good look at Eastons bottom gums and was shocked to see TWO TEETH had come through! It seriously must have happened overnight! Hes such a trooper! He hasnt even been super fussy about teething (knock on wood!) Lets see..we had a fun Halloween together! I decided to make him his very first Halloween costume ever and this is what i came up with.....

He was the cutest little Yoda baby ever! ;0) We spent Halloween handing out candy with some friends of ours. Good times! Here are a few random recent pictures of Easton..

This last week we were able to spend some time in lovely Bakersfield with our amazing families! Matts parents came up to Paradise for a visit and Easton i went back with poor hubby had to work and it was weird being away from him for a whole week! We missed him, however, it was nice to be able to spend another week there with the fam! It was fun introducing Easton our everyone for the first time! Here are some pics of Easton with some of his new friends ♥
Easton also got to meet his little cousin Dariyan for the first time! They are only 5 days apart! I have a feeling that they are going to be best buddies one day :0)
While i was there, i was sick pretty much the whole time!...i know, lame right?! I had the flu one day and then a breast infection from breastfeeding the next day! (sorry if thats TMI :0) My temp was 101.5 and i was in PAIN! Thank you everyone for helping me with Easton while i was sick! Good thing my mommy was there to take care of me ;0) The good news is that i got better just in time for Eastons blessing day! Matt drove down Sunday a.m. (poor baby) and he blessed him in his ward. Easton and his cousin Dariyan were blessed on the same day so that was really neat! I was nervous that Easton would cry the whole time but he was perfect! I didnt hear a peep out of him! Matt gave him such a beautiful lucky i am to have such a sweet husband and baby boy! It had been freakishly hot the whole week before..but it was a beautiful day on Sunday (only 80 degrees) just for Easton :0) Here are a few pictures after the blessing..
We were originally going to bless Easton in the blessing outfit his daddy wore..but..our little chunk was too big for it SO i found this adorable little outfit has a little vest and bow tie..SO CUTE! ♥
After church, the whole family came over for a yummy dinner! It was so great to spend time with everyone!
While we were in Bakersfield it got up to 112 degrees outside! It literally felt like an oven outside! So naturally, we did a LOT of this...
Easton had his first swimming experience..he really likes the water! It is so fun watch our little boy experience everything for the first time ♥
I also got a chance to have fun with the waterproof camera that i bought a while worked great! :0)
Matt has been itching to go rafting so while we were there, we made a date out of it ;0)
My cute hubby on the bus...
and with a crazy woman his wife ;0)
speaking of crazy ladies...he made me take this picture...
so i could get a pic of this lady.....and her GINORMOUS goggles! HA HAH 'awesome!'
There was alot of water in the river still which meant lots of rapids which meant lots of FUN! During the slow parts, we went swimming! The water felt great!
We had a great time and made it back in one piece ;0) And we cant come to Bakersfield without visiting my favorite ice cream shop!
i LOOOVE Rosemarys and always get the giant banana split...and yes, i eat the whole thing! ;0) YUM
Also, another must when i visit is a puzzle..we love puzzles in our family! :0)
 dorks! ♥
..and heres Easton chillin on the cute little quilt my Grandma Bigelow made for him ♥ Its made out of vintage fabric and is adorable!
We had a great time visiting some of our favorite people!..I only wish they lived closer! Y'all are more than welcome to come visit us if you ever feel like taking a trip up to Paradise ;0) We love youguys!
