Yep thats right, our home is done (has been for a while now my bad!) We finalized everything and closed on July, 3 ,2012! What a great feeling! It was definatly a long road and full of headaches but we are here and it was so worth it! We love our new home. Sorry the post is so late some of you alreay know and some of you have no idea but Mitch and I decided to build a house in Rock Springs. But the reason for the late post is because after we signed on our house we found out I was going to have surgery friday. So my family was already coming to be with us for the 4th and help us move in. They got to spend the best part of the weekend being with Ruger and having fun with him! He loved it!

But I will just post pictures for you to see the progress of our home start to finish!

11 Months!

Holy cow (this was suppose to be posted a month ago! I wrote it but hit save instead of publish my bad! Next week there will be one for 1 Year!!!) RUGER is going to be ONE next month!!! As you can tell I missed posting about 10 months it was crazy around here getting into our new house and everything I am still working on that post! I am so far behind its not even funny! ha ha

Well Ruger started walking just after he turned 10 months! It is so crazy how fast he is growing and learning. Where did my baby go? I am starting to have mixed emotions about him turning one, I am not going to lie. I want him to stay little forever. He is so much fun and just loves life. He laughs at everything, I mean everything! Mitch and I will be talking about what happened at work or the day that we have had and he will just sit and laugh. Then we start laughing because he is just so darn cute! We love him so much and believe me we are going all out for his birthday so for those of you who can't make it to the party I will post everything the next week...I hope :)

He loves to play with other kids he has a hard time when things get taken from him but who doesn't! I still do and I am ... well we won't go there but you get the idea. He loves being outside with his daddy. Mitch and him are so cute together, he defiantly loves his daddy, and his daddy loves him that's for sure!

He LOVES the shower! I can't keep him out of it even with his clothes on!

Ate mud after the rain storm!

LOVES spaghetti! He knows he gets to shower after eating it that's why!

New favorite toy is the BOX!

Sneaky little pill! He found daddy's pop that lucky for us hadn't been opened yet!

He thinks he's pretty funny too!

Our first 4th of July!

Well we thought about getting up and going to the parade but we are all tired out from moving, and we were to excited about my family coming over to spend the weekend with us. We tried to hurry and get as much put away as possible so we could enjoy their stay with us.

Ruger had so much fun with his Grandpa, Grandma, and aunt and uncles!! When my family came, Mitch, my dad and my brothers went out and bought some fireworks so we could light them off!

Ruger loved it! He had to wear his dad's earmuffs for some of it, but he loved all the bright colors! There were fireworks going off everywhere, because all of the neighbors seemed to have the same idea.
Wearing Dad's earmuffs and hanging with Grandpa doing fireworks!


Family!! Happy 4th!

Smiling with his dad!
Hey, it's Mykala here! (I'm Nicole's sister if any of you were wondering!) When Nicole and Mitch went to Evanston on the 5th, so Nicole could have her surgery, my family and I were in charge of taking care of Ruger! We had a lot of fun! We went swimming that Friday at the Rock Springs Family Rec center, and Ruger loved it! He liked to watch all the kids splashing, and he loved to splash himself! He really missed his mommy and daddy though! When my family went to go home on Sunday, the 7th, I stayed behind to help take care of Ruger, since Nicole wasn't able to lift him. It has been so much fun getting to hang out with this little guy!

9 Months!

Oh my heck I don't know where the time has gone! Ruger is 9 Months already! We took him to the Dr. for his well check and he is growing great. He weighed in at 20 lbs and is 27 1/2 inches tall. He loves to sing and dance. His little personality is defiantly his own. He is getting into everything, he is so close to walking its not even funny. He is really quick so if it gets really quiet and you can't find him he is probably into something he shouldn't be. We moved which that will be in a different post but with that said Ruger is loving all the new space and things to play with. We got a trailer for the bike finally and it converts into a stroller, Well my sister Mykala is here with us for about 3 weeks so you will hear from her I am sure, but she is so thrilled we have that now she can keep training for cross country and take Ruger and Mazie with her!

He finally has hair to spike!


June got away from me! Sorry for the late posts but I will hopefully get caught up and back on track! Enjoy!

8 Months!

Ruger is getting so big! He is now 19 lbs 12 oz! What a big kid. He is so much fun, into everything but its so fun to watch him figure things out. He is starting to pull himself up on to things, and he will push things around the living room to get around. This little one will be walking before we know it! He has 2 teeth on the bottom and is getting 2 on the top but its not the 2 you would think. He is going to be a little vampire when they finish poking through. :)

We went to Idaho for Memorial Day weekend. We spent a couple days in Ashton with the Heiners. We had a lot of fun. Went to Idaho Falls and had lunch with Grandpa and Grandma Heiner. Mitch and Paul, his dad, serviced our Yukon, his dads pick up, and the 2 four-wheelers. While they did that Ruger and I went for a long walk so he would take a nap. When we got back I planted flowers. Jen, Mitch's sister, and her kids came up to Ashton to hang out for a while. It was good to see them and get to spend time with them. Grandpa Merrill came up as well and when he got there we loaded up and headed to Island Park to go see the rest of Mitch's siblings. It was a lot of fun, we went on a four-wheeler ride, sat around and got to talk to everyone. It was so nice to go up and enjoy the nice weather, and good company. Ruger was able to play with his cousins, he was loving having someone else to play with.

Sunday night we went to my parents house and was able to spend time with my whole family. Monday morning we went to the Cemetery and put flowers out and then went swimming at Green Canyon. Ruger had so much fun in the water. I couldn't tell who was enjoying it more Grandpa or Ruger. So fun to watch them play, very proud grandparents that's for sure.

Yesterday we went to a birthday party at the park for one our friends daughter. Ruger loves to be outside. If he gets fussy and the door is open he will crawl to the door and want outside. So funny. So we spent most of the day outside and he loved it.

Playing at the park. He got a wand from the Princess party!


Got some new toys yesterday he loves to stand and play at his new table!
