Mommy Garner

Sometimes, Micah ignores me when I call for him or ask him to do something. So, I will say, "Micah!" If he doesn't answer, I will say it again, "Micah!" If he still doesn't answer, I will say (with my voice raised a little and a bit stern), "Micah Garner!" Well, the other day, Micah was downstairs and he kept calling, "Mommy! Mommy!" I didn't answer him because I was busy changing Abby's diaper. Well, he must have been getting fed up with me because the next time he yelled for me, he didn't say, "Mommy!" He yelled, "Mommy Garner!"

Look What I Came Home To & Funny Faces

Last nite when I came home from YW, I found this sweet scene waiting for me. My three favorite people were all snuggled up together and snoring like mad. It was the cutest thing I've ever seen.
Micah likes to make funny faces. He makes a version of the same face several different ways. It's really cute and today, I was lucky enough to get him to pose for me.

This is his scary Grinch face.

Here is Micah and his friend Micah (yep, his name is Micah too) making funny faces.

It's Been Awhile & Micah Earned Bumblebee

Wow! I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted last. I hope you enjoy these pictures. As you can tell, we've been having a lot of fun!
Here is Micah with his latest prized possession: Bumblebee from the Transformers series. He is really into Transformers right now and wanted this toy. We decided that it would be best for him to have to earn it, so we made a chart and set a goal for 12 stars. Once he had earned all 12 stars, then we could go to the store and buy Bumblebee. It took a little longer than we had expected, but Micah finally earned all 12 stars. Last nite, Heath took him to Target to get his toy. Micah was so excited to get it and he has not put it down. He even slept with it last nite.
Here is Micah with Uncle Beau. Last weekend, Beau ran a half marathon. The next day, his feet were really hurting so he filled the bath tub with water and Epsom Salt and soaked in it. Micah thought it looked fun, so he took off his shoes and joined right in.

Abby is 10 months old now and is growing up so fast. One day, I put her down for a nap and she would not go to sleep. I let her cry for a few minutes and then went in to get her. I found her like this. She was holding on to her crib so tightly as if she was saying, ' can I get out of here myself?"

Here is Micah with Uncle Jeremy. A few weeks ago, we were in Rexburg for a long weekend. Micah loves his uncles because they are all so good to him. He's a lucky boy because he has 6 of them.

Here is a picture of Abby and Popi. Our kids are so lucky to have 4 grandparents who love them so much.

While we were in Rexburg, Gammy got Micah this new swimming suit. It's a Spider Man wet suit with a built in floatation device. Micah loves it and tries to put it on just about every day. Actually, the first day he got it, he tried to sleep in it.

Here is Abby in the swimming pool at Gammy and Popi's house. You can just see how much fun she is having.

Here is a picture of Abby just before we went out to the pool. She was all decked out in her swimming suit and sun hat. Isn't she adorable?

Micah loved the alligator floaty. He rode it like it was a horse.

Here is Micah and Uncle Ian just before we went out to the pool. Micah could hardly wait to get out there.

Micah adores his uncles.

Abby just loves to play with toys. She thinks she's just as big as Micah and can play with anything. She wants to play with whatever he is playing with. As you can tell from this picture, she was playing with cars on a track.

Sorry! I can't delete this.

Uncle Ian gave Micah some sea shells. Here he is with a star fish. It's his favorite. He plays with it all the time and has named it, "Patrick." Those of you who are familiar with Spongebob will recognize that. :)

The week before we went to Rexburg, Gammy came here and stayed with us. She brought Abby this adorable little beret. Doesn't she look cute in it?

I swear, this girl should be a baby model. :)
