A Day in the Life of Derek!

Derek loves the snow and he carries around his snow boots and cries, "GO, GO" until we take him out into the snow!! He loves it!!

Derek also loves to steal Kurtis' socks and then run around the house with them. Derek loves to be chased! He is getting really fast!

Derek also likes so eat all of time!! And the best part is when he shares his partly eaten food... yumm.

Finally Derek loves to take apart the Christmas tree and dance with the ornaments!! This guy has got some serious moves!

Santa is Scary

Santa is scary!! Derek was not a fan! Our ward had a Christmas breakfast this morning and Santa came to visit. Lets just say that Derek did not like it. He was fine if he sat on my lap but not Santa's! Maybe next year.

Christmas Candy!

It is that time again!! Christmas candy!

Sad BUT True...

I get up in the morning before Kurtis. Usually because I am throwing up or because Derek is awake. Well these two things happen together often enough that when I call for help, Derek helps me (It scares Derek when I am throwing up). I call out for Kurtis and Derek does too! So cute!!

Doctor's Reports

I went to the doctor this week and got to hear the heartbeat! Everything sounds good and I will be in my second trimester on Tuesday!! We also weighed Derek and he is a whopping 23 lbs and 30 inches tall!! That puts him in the 50th percentile, so he is just perfect! Life is good!!

Big Dancer!

Derek has been a big dancer for awhile but every time I would pull out the camera he would stop dancing!! But last night I finally captured him at his best!! Dancing like a maniac to his favorite song!!

Derek has no fear he was climbing up the jungle gym like it was nothing.
Kurtis being silly while sliding down the slide.

Derek and I going down the slide!
Derek watching his dad act like kid!
I am not sure who like the park better... Kurtis or Derek...

Derek has started running! Let just say it is hard to keep up!


Derek loves his touchy-feely books! He gets them off the shelf and then sits down and flips through the pages and touches all of fun stuff.  When I read him a book that is not touchy-feely he still tries to find something to touch it is super funny.  

Great Great Grandma Liston

Derek and Grandma Ford!
Derek and his favorite person in the world... his mom!
Derek eating grandmas famous carrot cake!
This is Kurtis' grandmother and great grandmother.  And so this is Derek's great grandmother and great great grandmother!! Crazy!

Crazy Happy Deep Dish!

Derek looks crazy happy in this picture! It makes me laugh! Also, that night for dinner I made deep dish pizza.  And it was the best! If any of you want the recipe I will post it!

Cleaning the Shed!!

Kurtis decided that it was time to clean out our shed in the back yard.  Anytime Kurtis is willing to get rid of junk I am excited!  He is a big pack rat!  Derek thought that he should help his dad de-junk!!
