Glimpse at Heaven

I am in awe at how a little person, barely 20 pounds can make such an impact on my life. His little smile and laugh can make my whole day. Our little Tate is such a blessing in our lives. I truly feel like babies are a little glimpse at Heaven. Come on and try not to crack a smile when you look at pictures of this guy!

A few gems from Tate's birthday


I know I already blogged about Tate's first birthday, but my dad emailed me the pictures that he took of Tate eating his cake and I just had to share them. They are so cute. He could not have preformed better for the camera! I thought I did a pretty good job with the cake as well....

He's learning!

Tate is learning so fast. As you can tell he still has a few things confused, Like his head and belly, but he gets it right some of the time. He sure is cute though. He makes us laugh all day long!

Carousel ride anyone?

I can't remember the last time I went on a carousel before this summer; but since this summer we've been several times. We started our carousel summer in Helena when Aaron and Kens and Maycie came up to visit. Maycie loved it, Tate thought it was alright. He was just getting the feel for it then I think.
Then when we were in Utah he really got the feel for it. We went to the Trafalga in Lehi and he was pushing people out of the way to get back on. I think he went 6 or 7 times that day.

Now we're back in Minnesota and it just so happens we have a carousel right down the street from us. They have one free day every month, which happened to be last Monday. So we went with our friends Ashlynn and Madison. He loved it yet again, and I'm sure we'll be going back in September!

End of our trip in Montana and Utah

Yikes I have some major catching up to do here. I'm so behind! We've been back in Minnesota for about 2 weeks now. We are all moved into our new apartment and love it! I just need to do some finishing touches and then it will be ready to be photographed and posted. But before we jump the gun and post pictures of beautiful Minnesota, I better get to some pictures of the last part of our time in Montana and our time in Utah. Donny and I have always felt so lucky to be a part of two of the most amazing families. We have such a good time together and really enjoy the time we get to spend with our siblings when we get the chance.I just adore these two together! I mean really are there any guys our there cuter.... I don't think so.
Kids where tired by this point I think, but the rest of us are looking good.
Mayce and Tate had lots of fun jumping around in Granddad's boat.
Tate learned how to show that he is 1!
After the boats at Trafalga. I think Donny is the wettest.
All the grand kids (minus Ellie) at our canyon picnic.

The whole Baum gang.
We love our family and miss them so much now that we are far away. But it sure makes it special when we can all get together.
