Any Opposed?

Last Sunday was Ward Conference in our ward. It was a buzy day packed with meetings and "special visitors" in primary! Blake, as always, was great for both Trent and Me with how buzy we were.
But, before all the fun began with me in primary making sure everything went smoothly, and Trent running around for the Bishop - gimped -(he sprained his ankle) - Blake thought he would give us a good laugh to make our day that much better!
We are sitting in Sacrament meeting, Trent was holding Blake - his back to me - and one of the Stake presidency members was doing the sustainings for our ward.
So obviously, we start with President Monson -"all those in Favor?"
Trent raises his hand.
(Blake had this look on his face that said "What IS he doing?")
And all the sudden "any opposed?"
Blake raises his hand.
We kinda just chuckled - didn't think anything of it.
The next one comes - the quorum of the 12 - "all in Favor?"
We raise our hands
"Any opposed?"
Blake raises his hand!!!
It was so funny - It was right on cue to oppose but he was just following Trent's lead! And I kid you NOT! He did it about 6 or 7 times!
Where's my camera when I need it!?!?!? We were trying so hard not to laugh - or conceal our outbursts is more like it!
It was one of those things that will just make your day!
I tried to get a picture earlier of him raising his hand, but he wouldn't allow it.
"You better catch it the first time Mom cuz I'm not a repeating actor!"

So, as you can tell this whole writing more than twice a month thing is hard for me! I guess I just don't think that I can write about all of Blake's Big poops! or I stayed home all day with a snot nose teething little boy who kept me up ALL night long. But, oh the joys of being a mom! I love him more than I can explain, and I wouldn't trade him or the opportunity for a million bucks!

The first part of January, Blake and I, along with Ashlee and Kinsey, started a baby massage course. I'm glad I did it I learned a ton! But a word of advice for all you mom's out there who would like to try: do it before your baby learns how to crawl - or in my case learning to walk! It was fun, but Blake was all over the place, wanting to play with the oil, or getting the other kids' toys. But when all said and done, with the 5 week course it was great. I got to spend that one on one time with Blake that everyday life (or being at home with the computer, tv, or my book) doesn't allow! And, hey! On the subject of poops - the stomach massage really helps those little guys work it out! lol

So now that it's over I'm gonna have to plan that one on one time again - maybe take him swimming or something like that. Good thing it's almost Spring!
