Amarillo Birthday

For my birthday this year we decided to drive up north to Amarillo. My mom recommended a burger place there that she and my step-dad tried when driving through Amarillo to visit us in Texas. I believe the place was spotlighted on the show Man vs. Food. It was delicious.



The place is called Coyote Bluff Cafe

 We also went to visit Cadillac Ranch. It is a famous landmark with eight Cadillacs sticking out of the ground. They have been spray painted and people come visit and sign their names on the cars.

We were pleasantly surprised to find a special message on one of the cars.

Can you see the "Happy Birthday Rebecca"? 
It was meant to be.

It was quite windy that day, but Wyatt took it like a champ. Although it takes a little longer, it is so fun to have this little guy accompanying us on our adventures.

Two months

Wyatt has been with us for over two months now. He is such a joy! At about one month he started to smile a lot. I can't get enough of his little smiles! He likes to coo and have conversations with whoever is willing to talk (sounds like his mother!). He doesn't like tummy time very much but every now and then he will be okay with it. Wyatt is probably happiest when he is lying on his back so he can move his arms and kick his legs as much as he wants. He also likes to be sitting upright because he wants to see what all the adults see. Wyatt does not like to be left out. Wyatt is starting to sleep better but he will still wake in the night sometimes to eat. Wyatt loves to eat and he makes a lot of noise while eating. Wyatt is now 23 inches in length and he weighed 13 lbs. 7 oz. at the last doctor's visit. He is already about double his birth weight! He barely fits into 3 months clothes and is starting to wear 6 months. Isaac and I are both average size so we are shocked that our baby is growing so quickly! We feel so blessed to have such a healthy baby and to have the opportunity to be parents. We recognize that this opportunity shouldn't be taken for granted. I'm so grateful for a husband that is so dedicated to family, and it makes me so happy to see how Isaac loves to spend time with Wyatt. Here are a few more recent pictures of Wyatt.

Here is Wyatt with his cousin Leila at Halloween time.

Here are some cute photos of Wyatt smiling.

We blessed Wyatt this past Sunday and took some pictures outside the temple afterward. Wyatt made some great faces for the camera!

Here are some pictures of Wyatt with family and friends


Maternity and Newborn Pictures

I've fallen behind on blogging more pictures but better late than never, right? Here are some of the pictures that our photographer Becca Caniglia took.
