Family photo

Here we are.  Adam was almost 9 months old.

October fun.

This month has just flown by it seems.  We have been loving the cooler weather and watching the all the trees change colors.  Fall is our favorite season but it just goes by so fast.  It will be snowing soon and we are doing our best to get as much time outdoors as possible.  David has been working so hard with school.  It is his second to last semester.  He is so busy I sometimes feel like I am a single mom.  I swear single moms are super heroes.  I only have one baby, who is a really good baby as far as babies go, and I get so tired.  I can't imagine the moms out there that work and raise kids all on their own.  Incredible.  I cannot wait for David to be able to spend more time at home with us.  Whenever Adam sees his daddy, he lights up.  Once daddy is home, I am pretty much chop liver to him.  It's okay though, I love watching those two play together.  Here are some photos of the past month or so.

Adam will tell us he is done eating by putting his hands behind his head and leaning back.  No idea how he picked this up but it is sure cute.

Our make-shift playpen for Adam.  He is a mover now and keeping him out of things is hard work.  He is a smart one though.  He's figured out a few ways to get out when we're not looking.  Stinker.

 Adam is always rolling his toys under things and then tries his best to get them.  It is hilarious to see him.  He'll just lay there with his bum in the air until he gets what he wants.

I love this talk.

It is amazing how General Conference can really speak to my heart.  The question that has been on my mind for the past few weeks can be summed up by Elder Hales, "Why is it that the Son of God and His holy prophets and all the faithful saints have trials and tribulations even when they are trying to do Heavenly Father's will?  Why is it so hard, especially for them?"  I am sure this talk spoke to all of those who struggle with the trials they are given and I know that, for me, this helps to keep a smile on my face knowing that no matter what, me and my family are never forgotten by our Heavenly Father.
