Getting so big!!!

So Kael turn seven months today!! On father's day how cool. We were hangin' out a couple days ago so I decided we should take his monthly pictures. I always take a bajillian of them so sorry for the picture over load. I just love taking pictures, I only wish I was better at it. Anyways, Kael has learned how to roll over both ways now. He rolls him self around to keep himself busy. This had made life so much easier for me. Well maybe not so much easier but happier. He can entertain himself for longer now that he can move around, so I can actually get some stuff done. I am in the process of baby proofing our house because I know sooner or later he is going to be crawling. Yikes! He can pull himself up to standing position but gets too excited and falls over. It's pretty funny to watch. His new thing this week has been making a smacking sound with his mouth. Well I guess his new fascination is his mouth really. He has figured out how to make silly noises, like smacking, razzing, and drooling excessively in the process. He still has 'no teeth!' Don't get me wrong I love, love, love his toothless smile. He just has had all the signs of teething for months and nothing has even popped out or anything. Eh, I'm not disappointed, just surprised. He L-O-V-E loves to eat, eat, eat. Oh my gosh if you eat something in front of him and don't share, Watch Out! He gets so mad. It's the funniest thing. I was eating ice cream the other night and he was kicking his legs and yelling at me cause I wasn't sharing. He was cracking me up. Of course I shared a lil' bit I couldn't resist. No worries I know what you are thinking, oh my gosh he's just a baby. I am one of those moms that think babies eating sugar is disgusting. I don't mind the occasional treat but babies that have soda in their bottle because they want it is just gross to me, or constantly eating crap food. Ew. It's no wonder most of the population in America is malnutrition and obese. Don't get me wrong I'm no healthy eater, I love the junk food, but I want to try my best at making sure my kids learn to eat right. My mom did a great job of giving us healthy meals and I know Chase's mom did too and she still does. Ha, Ha, do you think my diet has been getting to me? Well I've lost ten pounds and it's made me see a big difference. I Hate diets but I've been doing so good with this one and I only hope I can keep it up. Anyways, Kael continues to be such a good baby and I just love him to pieces. Sorry for the really long post.

We had a family reunion a couple weekends ago. It was so much fun!! I love camping. This is one thing that me and Chase love love love to do together. I get so bummed when he does last minute camping trips with his guy friends because I love to go. We have both been into dutch oven cooking the last few times we've been so we tried that out even though we had a kitchen to cook in. It turned out pretty awesome.

Spoiled dog. This is Rocky his used to be mine until he fell in love with my mom so now the lil' spoiled rotten turd is hers. :)
There is a creek right by the campsite so we have fished every year... and every year Chase catches a bunch of fish. We only caught one this year and guess who caught it?
I'm so so glad that Kael loves camping as much as we do. He was the happiest I have ever seen him. I don't even remember if he cried really. He was just so excited to be outside and around so many people and kids. He loved taking a bath in the sink. He thought he was hot stuff.
What a ham!
I just love all these pictures because you can totally see how happy he was, and he was that way the whole time.

Kael and Braiden chillin'
Look at my lil' white boy.
He's Glowing!!

Always eating
This was the cutest thing ever! Kael was so so tired it was way past his nap time but he was fighting going to sleep. He got passed around a few times to see if anyone could get him to sleep. Grandpa to the rescue! My dad put his hat on him and then immediately Kael grabbed grandpa's nose laid his head on his shoulder and fell right to sleep. Who knew a nose and a hat was all he needed. ha ha ha. oh well and grandpa too I guess. he he.

Every night after dinner and visiting we would get games going. It was so much fun!

I love getting together with family its so much fun. I took a ton more pictures but I just don't think they will all fit. ha ha. Anyways, love camping, love family fun, love reunions.
