Me and our new cutie at the halfway point...right before the sono.
Peter eventually got to come back in, and we all got a good laugh. My Dad will never live this down :) He just needs to see those babies fully covered in skin, not just their insides.
But our new little guy looked so perfect! It was amazing to see how adorable he already is and see how perfect each and every part of that tiny little body is.
And we are SUPER excited to be having another very active little boy come to our family. Everyone kept asking if we were hoping for a girl, but Peter and I both really wanted another boy, and had been feeling it would be a boy. So we were happy and relieved--boys are so much easier for us--simple. Wild and crazy, so all you have to is focus on channeling all that energy and keep them fed :)

It was a wonderful experience to see Joey baptized. He is a very sweet boy and has learned much of the gospel over the last year. We were proud of his thoughtful decision to choose to be baptized.
Dad helping Joey practice right before we left for the church
We were sooo HAPPY that grandma and grandpa Taylor came all the way out to be here for that special day!
It was a lot harder to pay attention during the baptism and confirmation when I was trying to keep our VERY talkative and loud little toddler Tionne quiet. The best part was right after the baptismal ordinance was finished and Joey was just getting out of the water; Tionne shouted, "Kimball's turn now!"
This is the real reason Tionne likes to help in the kitchen--so he can lick all the yumminess off the beaters

After we dropped Tionne off to his parent visit, we took the boys to watch the airplanes take off on the airforce base while we aited for the air museum to open
We showed grandma and grandpa all the cool things in the museum
Then ended with a giant cookie
Then spent the evening with more presents--his white towel from grandma, dragon slayer's academy books, a dinosaur bone egg from Kimball.
A delicious breakfast dinner with cinnaon roll french bread
And ended with my favorite tradition of reading their baby story to them. Joey doesn't seem super interested :), but I love sharing with them of their birth and looking at their pictures and remembering what little angels they are.
Grandma and Grandpa Taylor wanted to celebrate Joey's accomplishment of finishing the Book of Mormon, so they took him to a restaurant of his choice. He choose Golden Corral so he could eat as many deserts as he wanted--he got cupcakes, 2 kinds of ice cream, cotton candy, and a little bit of food for dinner :) He was in heaven, and loved the one-on-one time with his grandparents!
We also went one day to Saguaro National Forest to see the saguaros.
Playing chess with grandpa
The boys showing off their muscles
Joey's got lots of fun presents for his birthday. Both sets of grandparents got wonderful keepsakes to remember his special baptism day
One thing Joey loved was getting the movie E.T. He wanted it for a long time and finally got it
And money is always a hit :)
