Update

Amazing. Time has flown by incredibly fast. Zeke is one, prancing around the house. Babbling his oppinions and concerns, at least I'd like to think so. Really? A year already? I keep having memories of the day he was born and the leading zombie moths after. It was so hard for a beautiful transition into motherhood for me. Planning out everything before I left the house was hard. Planning out anything really was hard for me. I was use to dashing out of the house with or with out direction if I wanted to leave. Now I had to make sure I knew exactly where I was going and for how long and how many diapers I needed and a changs of clothes for zeke for the 'blow out all over his back' moment and I needed to make sure I was packing enough food for me. I still ate like I was pregnant. It was so much to think about. After three months or so I was kinda somewhat a pro.
Zeke is adventurous, always into everything. I don't mind if my house becomes a disaster zone as long as he is having fun. I'm trying to get him to help me put toys away after he is obviously done with them. I sing the clean up song from the Barney and Friends show. Funny? I know.

I wrote that about a month ago.
Shows how much I have been on my blog.

I have been busy. Period. With what? Zeke, Me, Coop... Mother, Sis, Brotherling. My mom's basement has flooded... again. It was a disaster water pools everywhere. Cooper rushed over there after work to get the couches and valuables out of the basement. After a week, still no new carpet, 1-2 feet has been cut out of the walls (floor up). Christmas. Christmas is around the corner! I have been trying to help with all I can. It will all get together last minute.

Zeke gave me a gift today. One inch scratch on my right cheek. It is a deep one.
Immediately I applied Raw Honey on it. Honey is a great antimicrobial and has great moisturizing properties. After I drenched it in Liquid Vitamin E. Im just winging it. I dont know, I'm Desperate! I really hope it doesnt leave a scar. I HOPE!
Baby Zeke is wonderful, I love him to the end of the world and back and back and back again. He tried to sing Sesame Street's Elmo's Song in the tub today. OOOHHH! CUTE! haa. I have it recorded on Cooper's phone. So precious.

This is what is new with me...
Got a 3B Yoga Pass! FINALLY Best yoga in Utah County for sure. When I was pregnant every class I went to took care of me. Massaged my low back, neck, FEET. yes FEET! They are amazing.
Zeke's First Birthday was HUGE SUCCESS. Cooper's friend who works for Diamond Rental hooked us up with a COTTON CANDY MACHINE, POP CORN MACHINE AND GAMES. 'Tis was an awesome time!

Energy Cookies (RAW)

I Followed the recipie to the 'T' however, I do recommend to SOAK your almonds, pepitas, sunflower seeds before you mixed them into the batter. Why? Well, you will get more nutrition out of the seeds and nuts. Think of them being asleep and water wakes them up as it soaks into them. Really beneficial for you. YOU SHOULD KEEP THEM REFRIGERATED!

This is a recipe i am dying to try out... it is the Vegan Overnight Oats. MMM.

Figs Cucumbers Quinoa Pasta























Hello September. Summer is almost gone, the nights are getting a little more chili-perkins justifying wearing a sweater is obvious.
So this month, well last month, i didnt post anything about zeke turning nine months... well he did turn nine months with or without a blog post. He got his first cold 1 week ago. It was the most miserable time for the Zeke, he did not know what was going on with his body. i felt so awful for him.

Hello,
This past weekend I had the opportunity to spend time with the girls at the Trek Dirt Series in Park City. It was really humbling and forced me to have a positive attitude on the rides they took us, which were really intense hard. I grew as a person, defiantly. But also I learned years worth or techniques in just two days. Ya? Ya! I'm serious. I recommend this camp to all women who want to get serious and obviously, better at mountain biking. Here for more info on the women's series.

Projects i've currently been working on...


making my own stamps out of all the wine corks i have... they work out great. i wish i had a pictures... well, coming soon!





and making stamps out of silicon gaulking.... on to 1/8 inch plexi glass. these are still a work in progress. The gaulking is really hard to work with. I could just use 3d paint? OR foam.... like paint that turns a little foamy once it's dried... is there such thing?


and this lovely clutch i made for a friend's birthday...

8 Months

I can't believe that in 4 months zeke boy is going to be a year old. This makes me think a couple things...









































a. grab life by the horns (haa i know)
b. laugh often
c. don't waste time
d. play play play









Photobucket































This little pea is starting to power crawl... oh boy. we have already kicked out the coffee table and replaced it with an ottoman coffee table. So zeke's head bangs are a little more plush. we have moved most furniture which potentially harm zeke when and if he falls. Because, now! zeke is starting to stand up on his own. This all happened so fast.
He is starting to show more and more of his personality. From scrunchy faces to babbles. I love getting to know him more and more every day. He is very interesting.

Zeke's 7th MONTH

Zeke master flex.. hee. i call him that because his rolls on his arms look like muscles. this month he is 7 months old.




Photobucket
new hair










































Here is the list
-----------
Kinda scooting
Sitting up by himself
Trying to stand up
Has mastered holding things
Drumming (a lot)
Eating more solids
Had a bath for the first time in the kitchen sink
First kinda sunburn, just a little pink from mom and her friends laying out at the park. he was in the shade.. but still
Can hold himself on all fours then does a Downward dog
Farts, and they stink
Gets excited to see Coop and Jess
Fell off the bed, but didn't get hurt. so lucky
Screams of Joy
Wants to grab everything shiny which is usually a door knob
Can hold himself up on his two feet, if you help him up
Laughs at most sounds
Swim lessons, went under water a few time now. Chokes every time






















During the weekend we spent a day with my brother and sister in law along with their three kids for the last time, hopefully not. They are leaving on a three month soul searching outdoor food exploring adventure. They left Utah to make sure they aren't missing out on life some place else. pretty bold.
