Thinking....

"I have been thinking..."

"...about my teething ring and my Dad's lap..."

"...about scaring my mom..."

"...about relaxing February walks..."


"...and how my dad makes me smile..."

"...and about more sunny day February walks!"

"Oh, how I have been thinking!"

Valentine's Day!

LOVE:
--In a world that says, "I love God, but Jesus?"
"Jesus said to them, 'If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me.'" John 8:42

--In a world of hypocrisy:
"Jesus replied, 'Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.'" John 14:23

--Fruit of a real Christian:
"But those who obey God's word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him." 1 John 2:5

The Bjurstrom Tradition:
Ever since we got married, Steve and I have made a heart shaped pizza with 1 lb of hamburger!
Valentines Day 2010
In our apartment


Valentine's Day 2011
Living at Steve's parents'

Valentines Day 2012
-We had bible study this night at our home, so we created a make-shift "tator tot heart" until we could celebrate later

Here it is:
VALENTINES DAY 2012

This year we were able to add a little heart; for Ethan!

Ethan thought he could give us some of his best Valentine's day 'love looks.'
"Hey lady babies."


Okay, here is our cute little Ethan when he is not posing!

Father-son moment!

Ethan trying to grab puff cereal.

Just hangin' out; supporting Dad; DMPD style.

And finally, some LOVE-ly memories:
Omaha zoo...I really like the zoo!
Our first Christmas together in our apartment.
 Going to The Lion King at the Civic Center; Broadway style.
4th of July in Seattle on a lake.
Baby Ethan!
Full of love!
What an awesome day!

February fun, falls, and...fluffy?

Happy February everyone!


Ethan has been playing...

playing...
playing some more... 

 and falling.
Now that he is sitting up more, he is falling more.
Here is his first real boo-boo!
He fell on a stackable cup, like the one he is holding in this picture; poor guy!

This will likely be the first of many injuries I am sure.
Steve said it best though, "the more he falls, the less he falls!"

Ethan has also been enjoying his new sink baths!
It only took me nearly 8 months to figure out this thing fit in my sink; thanks to a friend!
He loves kicking and splashing the water over the counter onto the floor; I don't mind, floors can be cleaned but fun at this age only lasts so long!

He did not like this bath time ending!

It doesn't seem so long ago and this is what our little guy looked like at bath time.
I think he might have more hair in the bottom picture! HA!
I am trying to get Steve to shave his head so they can be nearly twins!

Oh yes, and the 'fluffy' is the first real snow of the season; I think.
The snow was wet yet fluffy, and accumulated to 4-5 inches I believe.
Just a few days earlier it was 60 degrees or warmer and we were outside with no jackets on!
I LOVE IOWA!
