Happy Birthday Jimmer!

Jimmer is officially 1 today! We had a fun monster themed party with family on Saturday at my parents' house. The highlight of the party for us was watching him eat his cupcake. He would not touch it with his hands, but would bend down and get mouthfuls of frosting. Today Jimmer got to go to the doctor's and get 4 shots and go to James' summer party for his work. Jimmer weighs 18 lbs 5 oz and is 28 1/4 inches tall. We found out that his lingering cough is actually bronchitis and he has a residual ear infection. What great parents we are to not have taken him in sooner! We really do love our little monster though!

Two Teeth and Some Walking

Jimmer had no teeth until 11 and a half months and then got his first two within about a week of each other. We're glad to know he actually has teeth, and I had no complaints about being a late teether. Jimmer is also trying to walk and all he wants to do now is hold your hand and walk him around. He can take about 12 or 15 steps on his own now, but he's still working on it. We're excited for him to walk around and hope it is soon so that he'll stop using the death grip on our fingers and stop getting mad when we let go. But then we'll just be up chasing him around once he's steady on his feet. Yikes! Our Jimmer is getting big and he's just about to turn 1!

4 years, swimming, walking and hiking

Jimmer practicing walking with his shopping cart. He has taken a few steps on his own now, so it's only a matter of time until the walking begins!

Jimmer hiking around Stewart Falls on Memorial Day

James and I celebrated our 4th anniversary last Thursday. Woo hoo! We went to Texas Roadhouse on Thursday night for dinner and it was great. Then on Friday, James had a half-day of work so we headed up to Salt Lake to stay in the Little America hotel and go shopping on Saturday. James knew I couldn't pass up the Memorial Day sale (with the extra coupon I had) at Carter's, so he planned for us to stay somewhere near a Carter's store. Since our anniversary is near Memorial Day, I think it's going to be a great new tradition to just stay in a hotel, eat out, swim and go shopping! That's what I'm hoping for anyway. :) We had a great little trip and a fun long weekend together. I won't put up a wedding picture alongside a picture of us now because you'll just see how much fatter and uglier I've gotten over the past 4 I'll pass on that. You'll just have to enjoy the James and Jimmer pictures.
