Baby Colten

So I havent had the time to sit down and write about what's been going on so once again I am sorry that it has been so long.

Colten is 5 Months he is getting SO big and full of personality. He first started smiling at 6 weeks

{6 weeks}

He is one happy baby. Everything has been going GREAT with us. Settling in our new house and getting Colten finally on somewhat of a "schedule" He likes to lay and take naps in his crib now. I used to have to go in drives because he would only sleep in his car seat.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE being a mommy. Colten is so much fun and such a sweet baby. He changes everyday. We are very blessed he is here and makes our life so much happier.

Our Summer.

Heyy it's been quit a while since I last posted anything due to our crazy/fun summer. So i'll just tell what our life has been like the passed 4 months.

MAY: I had my baby shower thrown by Aunt Amy. It was so much fun and the baby got pretty much everything he needed! It was great, and loved seeing everyone who came to support my fun day.

JUNE: We finally BOUGHT A HOUSE!! located in Nampa just on the outside of town. Greenhurst/Happy Valley. It's a cute 3 bedroom 21/2 bathroom 1730 sq ft. home. We got an amazing deal on the house and I am so excited to be able to call it "Our Home" I threw Erics neice [my neice in-law] who is my age, a baby shower. She is having a boy and due just a week before me. They're going to be best buds. Fathers day was in June and my mom had this cute idea to pass around my dad for the day. We made shirts that said "Hands off to DAD" but each family had a different color. Our date with my dad was to go get pedicures, so Eric and Dad enjoyed a fun hour of attention from all the ladies getting pedis.

JULY: Eric and I were sealed in the Boise Temple July 8th. It was a very special day. Our family who was able to come were all there to support us on this day. One of Erics brothers wasnt able to make it because they were in Nauvoo for the pageant they put on the month of July, so they called us up that following Sunday and asked us if they could fly us down to Nauvoo and go through the temple with them and watch them in the pageant, of course we did! Who would turn down that fabulous opportunity?? So we went from Thursday-Saturday and it too was such a neat experience. We just got back from McCall from celebrating the yearly Christensen "family reunion" at this beautiful cabin belonging to my sister-in-law Kim's family. It is so much fun to go and relax up there. Boating, Jet Skiing, and being with the family is so nice, it's like our own mini piece of paradise. My parents were able to come up for a couple days to spend with us up there as well, which was so nice to have them there. They really enjoyed themselves and the company of the Christensen Family.

August is coming up and I am anxiously preparing/waiting for this little guy to come! August 29th is our due date, but i'm secretly hoping he comes on his own a little sooner! His room is somewhat put together just waiting on a few things to get the final touches up. I am also in my Best Friend Taylers wedding August 13th, which is in McCall. So excited to spend her special day with her and be apart of it!

AND IT'S A ...

We FINALLY had our ultrasound to find out if it will be a boy or a girl. It was such a fun experience to watch the ultrasound tech point everything out and tell us what everything is and watch our little guy move around. My dr. has a 4-D ultrasound so these are some awesome pictures.

Eric and I didnt find out at the dr. what we are having. We patiently waited for a couple hours because we thought it would be fun to open it up in front of our family. So after our appointment we went to Baby Gap, Eric picked out a boy outfit and I picked out a girl outfit. We had the gender sealed away in an envelope. We took both outfits up to the cashier and explained to her that this was a surprise to us too, so if she could wait till we left the store and then open up the envelope to see if it was a GIRL or BOY then pick the outfit according to the gender and wrap it up. I left my card with her and she did it all. She met us in the other section and handed us the pretty pretty wrapped box, in a bag with the envelope sealed away with the outfit. And we were on our way to the Lunch we set up for our family.

Eric was determined it was a girl and I was pretty sure it was a boy because my passed two dreams i dreamed about a little boy.

We opened the box together in front of everyone and there was the little outfit Eric had picked out for our little guy Ü

We are so excited and we cant wait till he gets here!! Eric jokes [but really wants] Jon Wayne Christensen .. because of my dad Jon & his dads name is Wayne. He has my dad set on it and everybody else. But we arent set on any names yet so if you have any cute ideas for a name throw them out there!!

I really like Crue, Cruz, and Cash .. "C" names IDK why!

Here are some more ultrasound pictures...

Legend has it that Valentine was a priest who served during third century Rome. There was an Emperor at that time by the name of Claudius II. Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those that were married. With this thought in mind he outlawed marriage for young men in hopes of building a stronger military base. Supposedly, Valentine, decided this decree just wasn't fair and chose to marry young couples secretly. When Emperor Claudius II found out about Valentine's actions he had him put to death.
Another legend has it that Valentine was an imprisoned man who fell in love with his jailor's daughter. Before he was put to death he sent the first 'valentine' himself when he wrote her a letter and signed it 'Your Valentine', words still used on cards today.
Perhaps we'll never know the true identity and story behind the man named St. Valentine, but this much is for sure...February has been the month to celebrate love for a long time, dating clear back to the Middle Ages. In fact, Valentines ranks second only to Christmas in number of greeting cards sent.
Another valentine gentleman you may be wondering about is Cupid (Latin cupido, "desire"). In Roman mythology Cupid is the son of Venus, goddess of love. His counterpart in Greek mythology is Eros, god of love. Cupid is often said to be a mischievous boy who goes around wounding both gods and humans with his arrows, causing them to fall in love.

hope you all have a fun. happy. safe. loving valentines day.
