I absolutely love Joshua's hair. I don't have to do anything and it comes out looking like this! Santa did come this year. Actually that was last year...
I just love our happy boy. He makes us laugh all the time. He's getting so big. We got him a forward facing car seat and he loves it. He loves seeing all the cars and people on the streets. He just looks at me as if to say, "Wow mom! are you seeing this?" It's like a whole new world has opened up for him.
He's almost crawling. Mostly rolling around but he gets up on his hands and knees and bounces back and forth. And right when I think he'll move forward he'll face plant and roll. But we're getting closer!
And we're back on the air and this year, if I fulfill my new year's resolution, there will be more posts and updates. Speaking of which, a lot has happened in just a few months and so I'll just start back in October with our trip to Utah. We went up for Tim's brother, Levi's baptism and his nephew Carson's baby blessing. It was so fun to see everyone! We also got to drive up the canyon and see the beautiful colors of the trees which doesn't happen too often in San Diego, so that was good to get a taste of fall.

I think Joshua and Riley (middle) look a ton alike.
We all went to Cornbellies at Thanksgiving Point and had a blast. I'd never been before and was blown away by all the activities they had up there. With a tractor ride, pig races, big bouncers, and a near-impossible corn maze, there was a lot of fun to be had.
Since Jesse and Cami moved back up to Utah, we also got to see Joshua's other cousins Ezra and Henry. Henry wanted Joshua to come play with them so bad. He kept holding out his hand and telling him to come when Cami was holding Joshua. I'm sure Joshua can't wait for the day when he can run and play with his cousins. I, on the other hand, am okay where he's at right now. He can roll around and sit up and that's about it.
Thanksgiving was momentous because my whole family was here together. We had a great time and amazing food! My mom was a little worried because we had 9 kids 4 and under. The kids table was longer than the adult table. There were no serious injuries so it went off really well.
Henry Brigham found the Martinelli's to his liking.
Lara and Mels - friends at last.
Most of the kids
Joshua and his newest cousins. He looks so big next to them.
