Becoming independent!

Billy is starting to show some interest in the TV, especially Mickey Mouse Playhouse and Handy Manny. I like Handy Manny. I like that it doesn't make me want to vomit like Teletubbies and Barney. It's a cute show, and I like that they use some Spanish.

He literally pulls himself to stand on EVERYTHING! Including poor Sam. I find myself saying, "be soft" a lot these days! Here he is crawling over Sam (a daily occurrence), pulling his beard, and getting kisses.

Billy has taken a new interest in his stuffed animals, especially Frank the Monkey, a gift from Aunt Julie!

"Big Haircut"

This is the current nickname that Jay has given Billy. Can anyone guess what that stems from? :)

On Friday, Jay had arthroscopic surgery on his knee to repair his meniscus. He's been dealing with a lot of pain from it for a few months now, so I'm glad we were able to finally get it taken care of. Everything went great and Jay is doing well. It's amazing to me that he only has four small incisions. Not many years ago, this kind of surgery would probably have resulted in a huge scar. Thank you modern medicine!

Here are some pics Jay took of us after church on Sunday.

We gave Billy a haircut over Christmas break, but it grows extremely fast, so it was definitely time for another one. I cut it really short, but I'm sure it'll grow back fast! Here is a 'before' pic:

(he's wearing a cute pink BYU shirt because he had a huge diaper blow out at a friend's house - sorry again, Jaime!)

Here's the 'after' pic:

First bubble bath!

Standing EVERYWHERE!!!
