Simeon has started dancing with his hands and enjoys his mobility. We're trying to wean him as its become super painful again for me to nurse, but he's a stubborn fellow and I'm a sucker for his baby face. I did give him a new sippy cup for his birthday (yes, I'm going to be one of those mothers who gives underwear for Christmas presents) and he took it, kind of. Christian's starting to get a little jealous of Simeon, but still adores him too. There both at really fun stages right now and it's a thrill to see what they come up with. Simeon's 7th cousin born within a year of him was born yesterday! (Congratulations Mary and Jared!) His newest little cousin, Thomas, is cute as cute, but has had some complications which has us all worried. Stephen and I were trying to explain to Christian that we needed to pray for the doctor's to help baby Thomas. We had showed Christian pictures of baby Thomas in the NICU and had prayed with Christian for him and the doctors. Today he kept talking to us about baby Thomas and said he didn't want to be worried for him. He also wanted to keep on praying for him. When he prayed, he prayed that the doctors would give him "nice nice pokeys." I guess that's maybe something I should pray for too.

I was in the middle of telling Christian about everyone that loves him. I told him about his parents, grandparents, and cousins. I then asked in hopes to teach him of heavenly love: "Do you know who loves you more than anyone else?" He responded, "Uncle Jared!" the entire trip in Utah, this is how Christian looked:
"I'm going to steal Simeon's birthday cake. I'm going to steal his party." - Words from an older brother put out that his own birthday is not for another two months. Yes, it was Simeon's first birthday. There wasn't too much for Christian to steal--just some German pancakes with homemade syrup. Some friends dropped by and made it into a real birthday party.

Feel a need to look younger these days? Why spend thousands on a doctor (real or fake) to mess up your face when you can just have your child (accidentally) give you a massive goose egg/eyebrow raiser/botox in one for free?
