We have been SO busy the past week...
Well, first of all. We have been making so many decisions lately. Devin got offered a job here in Wyoming. So now we have to decide again if Devin wants to go to grad school or to work! Ah, I swear we just did this!! Haha. But, they gave Devin a good offer plus the benefits are FANTASTIC. Anyway, there are lots of ups and downs of living here in Wyoming vs. going back to BYU for grad school. We have to decide by July 15th. It's so stressful.
Well we went to Utah to spend the 4th of July with Devin's family and to see some friends. It was a lot of fun. We got there on Friday night and went to the LeBaron's house. We picked up my EVO and then went straight to the Sprint store. Yep. Devin now has the EVO 3D and LOVES it. I have the EVO and I love it :) We are very happy. We spent the rest of the weekend playing on our phones.
Just kidding, we went back to the LeBaron's and had dinner and I don't really remember what else we did. Russell and Michaela came down that night too, so it was good to see them! But Saturday we got up and went to the Temple. It was perfect. We haven't been to the temple i'm pretty sure since February (my sisters wedding..ah). Needless to say we both felt the spirit and it was wonderful. When we got back we just went swimming and that was really nice. Liam loved the water. At first he didn't know what was going on, but then he started kicking his legs and flapping his arms (like he always does when he is excited). Don't worry, this time we lathered him with TONS of sunscreen. No baby burns this time. Then Devin's Aunt Beth, Uncle Allan and his Grandma came by for a visit! Liam loved Allan.
Loving Uncle Allan.
Then Saturday evening we went up the canyon with Devin's family. Russell made some yummy chicken Parmesan in the crock pot. After the canyon we just went back to the LeBaron's and then Bryan and Richelle came to see us that night. She is so cute with her little pregnant belly. I'm so excited for her to have her little boy...especially if we live in Utah. Him and Liam will be best friends :) Haha. Here are some pictures from the canyon
Family up AF Canyon
Sunday we went to Church, made a big dinner, and played some games. I also took Liam on the trampoline. He LOVED it. He couldn't stop giggling. I loved it too. Anyway, we played games with Devin's siblings. It was hilarious. We played crazy uno .Of course I lost every time because there are so many rules!!! Then we played this crazy game Tacy made us play called Sevens. Apparently i'm not good at multiples of seven. Haha.
And for the fourth of July we went hiking up Timp Caves. It was a great hike. And the cave was awesome. I loved it. Liam stayed at home with grandma. Apparently he was a good boy. The cave was really fun. But the next day I was super sore. I obviously need to work-out more. Oops.
Devin in Timp Cave. Looking scared.
After hiking we went and took some family pictures over at Bozung's house. Richelle took them for me, of course. She is so great. Hopefully we get them back soon to share! I think they turned out super cute. After that we went to Devin's aunt Sue's house and had a BBQ with her family and Guy and Kristin (Devin's uncle and aunt) came over. It was really good to see everyone! We watched fireworks over at Sue's neighbors house. Liam loved them. He started screaming at the loud ones and couldn't keep his eyes off of the huge ones! It was so cute. Then it started raining really hard and we went home.

Monday we were able to go to Provo and get some things done. Devin's uncle Justin (Sue's husband) is a doctor and let us take Liam in for his 6 month appointment (at 7 months..). He got his shots for free because he doesn't have insurance and his visit too. We are SO grateful for Justin and his help. He's also a great doctor if anyone is interested. :) He like printed us some information we were asking about for Liam and highlighted the good parts. His office is over by the hospital. Then I got to go see my friend Lindsey and her cute Braxton (who is 4 months I think). It was funny to watch Liam and Braxton interacting. Then that evening Devin and the boys played volleyball while I hung out with the girls and the babies. It was fun!
So Wednesday we drove home through Yellowstone. What a good choice. It is so beautiful and a way better drive than the other one we have been doing. It's only about an hour longer.. Jeffery and Corinn came home with us, so it was a fun ride! I'm pretty sure we saw some bears in yellowstone :) Hah. I'm only very hopeful the big brown spots in the distance were bears. We did see a TON of buffalo though.
Well, the rest of the week should be good with Devin's siblings here! i'll update more about our adventures later!
Liam at 7 Months-
-At 7 months Liam weighs 18 lbs (41%), 27 inches (41%) and I don't remember what his head is but it's like 56%. So, his growth rate slowed a ton! Probably because he has been moving around so much!
-He is trying his hardest to crawl. He goes forward now at least. He gets up and leaps his knees forward and usually puts one hand like he is crawling, but then flops on his belly. Then does it again. So he scoots forward. He is so close to just crawling.
-He is finally enjoying solids a little more. He eats barley cereal (To help with constipation, poor guy) and usually some fruits and some veggies during the day. We have also given him little bites of our food, and he doesn't know what to think of it.
-Talks a lot. He is so cute, he just starts to babble. I love it.
-Screams when he is excited.
-Sleeps 8-10 hours on average at night. (Usually will wake up around 6ish and go back to bed for a couple hours after he eats). But sometimes he doesn't wake up until 7:30 or 8. AWESOME!
-Loves playing peek-a-boo still.
-Loves Daddy. He always laughs when daddy tries.
-Still stares at new people. Doesn't give them a smile until he gets to know them a little bit :).
-Takes 2 or 3 naps a day.
Here are some photos of Liam during his 7th month of life..

Tacy was giving Liam some tips on how to play the piano
He loved it.
Here Liam is sleeping. I love that he moves around in his bed. It makes me laugh.
- We LOVE OUR BABY BOY!
