Dodgeball Delirium and then some

About a week ago, Aaron played in a dodgeball tournament with his coworkers from Novell (hooray for 2nd place!). Finn and I went to watch and I used my brother Tom's camera to get some action shots of da boyz:



Finn got so excited when I got the camera out, that it turned out to be a great photo op for him too!




While I'm talking about the little guy, I have to say that he has turned into such a great sleeper! Ever since he was 6 months old (when I had him cry it out) he has just gotten better and better. For the last couple months or so he has slept from 7pm-7am and takes two 1.5-2 hour naps during the day. We keep a bunch of binkies in his bed and it is so funny; as soon as I lay him down he spits out the binkie in his mouth and grabs another one, then he looks for his teddy and snuggles him to sleep. I know that some moms can't stand to hear their baby cry, and it was really hard for me, but I am SOOOO glad we did it because I am sure that has helped him turn into the great little sleeper he is today. Who knows, if I didn't do that maybe I would be clinically insane by now because I would still be waking up with him several times during the night. Thanks Finn for doing what you can to help me stay sane...and for being so cute...that really helps.

Oh man, I haven't been to Lagoon in forever! So many good memories. Looks like a nice hot day though. I'm sure Lagoon is quite a different experience with a kid. I don't even know what kids rides they have.

Aaron looks like he's got some good dodgeball form going on. That is so fun! Dodgeball is definitely still as cool as it was 20 years ago. Glad to hear you are all doing well! How long will you guys stay in PRovo?

Those chubby cheeks are just too adorable! I just want to kiss them! Isn't it the best thing ever when they start sleeping through the night?
