Guess who's.....

already 2 months old!!!!

Current Stats:
Height: 24 1/2 in (91 %)
Weight: 14 lbs 2 oz (94 %) He's gained 5 lbs so far.

He has changed so much in the last month and we've thoroughly enjoyed being able to watch him grow! He babbles all of the time still and loves to read a book and have a song sung to him before he goes to bed! He's gotten too tall for his 0-3 month pajamas so we've graduated to 3-6 month:) Hopefully they will last longer. He is starting to recognize people and give them smiles when he sees them! We have a book that I made with pictures of family and he loves to coo and talk to the pictures! He is starting to sleep 7-8 hours at night and I love it! He prefers sitting up to laying down and loves being able to look around more! We blessed him on the 12th and were so thankful for the family and friends who were able to make it. I'm so excited to see who Steven will become as he gets older and realize that it will come a lot quicker than I'm ready for. We love him more and more and are grateful for the wonderful change he has brought into our lives.

Steven's Blessing Day

First Fishing Trip

Gotta start em' young! I have a feeling that there will be many, many more of these:).

Krispy Kreme Saturday

My Grandma and Grandpa Tate buy Krispy Kreme donuts and chocolate milk every summer for the grandkids and great grandkids. We head over to Scera Park on a Saturday morning and get to where the hats and enjoy some yummy breakfast food! Although Steven didn't get to eat one, Aunt Brooke snuck some frosting into his mouth and he REALLY liked it:).

Today was Adam's first Father's Day as a father. I have felt so lucky to watch him evolve as a "dad" to Steven and it warms my heart to see the two of them together! He has shown me a whole new side since the wee babe came into our lives and I have grown to appreciate and depend on him more than I ever have before! I'm grateful to have a worthy priesthood holder that can teach our children how to lead a good life, live the gospel and love those around them! Adam loves Steven so much already and I know that he would do anything for him.
Thanks babe for starting this incredible journey of parenthood with me and for supporting me and Steven as we all learn from each other!

Love always,

My Papasito

4 Generations of Goodness

Seeing as it is Father's Day, I wanted to say a little something about my Dad.
He has been one of my best friends and I'm grateful for the opportunity to have that with him! He loves his grandchildren and they love him back even more! He laughs at my jokes even when they are super corny and he keeps my perspective grounded when I get into my stubborn strides. He is genuinely concerned with my well being and does his best to keep tabs on how things are going. He loved my mother unconditionally and served her selflessly- I can never thank him enough for the example that he set for me. He is a worthy priesthood holder and has an incredible testimony! I would be such a different person without him as my dad and I know that Heavenly Father sent me to be his daughter for many specific and eternally significant reasons. I love you papasito y espero que lo sepas!

10 years

Friday, June 17th, marked 10 years ago that my little sister Briana passed away unexpectedly. I still can't believe it. She was such a HUGE part of our lives and when she was gone, everything changed. She brought such an abundance of the Spirit into our lives and we never knew how good we had it until she was gone.
Briana, I miss you like crazy! My heart aches every time I see people with mental handicaps but I also get some warm fuzzies as I remember you :). Parker kept asking us to tell him stories about you this past Saturday and it was so much fun to see his excitement as he kept asking for more and more! I can't wait until Steven is old enough to understand where you are and how much you affected my life! Give mom a hug for me and keep making Steven laugh!

Love always, Jamie D.

Most mornings...

You will find me and Steven on the couch trying to get some extra sleep:)

We are still working on sleeping longer but he is now up to about 5 hours during the night. He will put himself to sleep in the crib, which I'm grateful for, and is downing 5 oz. each feeding. Although its looking like we are going to be moving closer to 6 oz sooner than later. We visited the doctor last week and Steven is now 12 lbs. 8 oz (although I'm sure we've surpassed 13 lbs since last week). We found out that he has laryngomalacia (when the supraglottic larynx (the part above the vocal cords) is tightly curled) and that is the cause for his "cute" squeaking:). The doctor said that it is common in first born males and that as long as it doesn't impede his eating or breathing, he will grow out of it within the first year. If it becomes severe then they'll have to do surgery but for right now everything is looking alright.
Steven has also started to find his voice! He jabbers at me most of the morning and is smiling more and more. He loves his swing and babbles at the little animals above him all the time! Fun story from last week: I was holding him while talking to my sister on the phone one morning and Steven decided he needed more attention. He stopped sucking on his binky, let go of it a little and made the sweetest coo's at me! I loved it! We sure do love our little man and are excited to bless him this Sunday!
Here are some more pictures from the last couple of weeks.
