Tired of seeing my post from February? So am I. Starting fresh, here is the latest from the Guerrero Clan:
Owen David Guerrero joined us on August 18! 7 lbs, 15 oz (3 weeks later he's a whopping 9 lbs and still eating...every second...) He is a sweet little guy, and so much like his brother Max in looks and personality that I really have a hard time keeping their names straight.
Max is 2 1/2, likes: dough, coloring,swimming, getting into moms makeup, cars (toys and movie), anything Nemo, jumping on everything ("BOING! BOING! BOING! BOING!"), being a big brother and holding Owen. He is really good at bringing me diapers and wipes at any time (the only thing he is willing to do if the tv is on).
He is forever entertaining with his growing vocabulary. Recent phrases include "guess what...chicken butt" " are you seeawious?" "soooooo.... what are you doing?" "no is NOT FUNNY!" and "sowy momma". He is pretty good at pronunciation but has a tiny little lisp that is so cute and reminds me of his aunt Natalie.
Davey is a busy bee at the office trying to finish some projects that have gone on for a year. The school year starting made things a bit crazy, and now he is going to be dealing with football season, but I don't think he minds that one bit. He is our branch mission leader right now which has made our weeks a little crazier with 'splits' and missionaries over once a week but so far we have both really enjoyed being more involved in missionary work out here.
I am recovering from baby, which seemed easy at first but is starting to catch up with me now and I have learned to take things slower. In July I officially signed up as a Mary Kay Independent Consultant which I was totally unsure of at first--well, I knew I was supposed to do it, I just wasn't exactly sure why at the time. However, over the last few weeks, even with baby madness going on, I have started to figure it out, and I really really love it.
Oh ya. We still have a dog. Indi has reached his full grown status, is about 6 months, and he thinks he is a 2 1/2 year old little boy. He has been fully potty trained for a while, but I am realizing that the rest of training is just as important. Like not jumping up on people, begging for food, walking with a leash on, etc. These are challenges that I was not prepared for... but we still love him as annoying as he can be at times.

The first week of February went towards making ridiculous decorations for Valentines Day. I went overboard..but I loved it.
I also had a TWO year old birthday to plan (!) Goodness me the time has flown. That gets it own post however
And with the help of our local Elders, you may have noticed our living room walls are now painted gray! Don't ask me or Davey how long it took to pick out the color, it ended up being our own custom mix...
It's really light but I'm glad we went lighter instead of darker...it's a nice sunny room in the day and cozy at night. Now i just need to put things on the walls, fix up the fireplace, and do something with that weird banister!

January was full of thunderstorms, and Max and I got used to making weekly trips to the library.
The Troy Library is well... pretty shabby and rundown. BUT they are building a brand new one and it opens next month! wooohoooooo I'm excited.
Pretty sure I read these books when I was little.
We do a lot of baking around here too. I try not to make too many sweets for Davey's sake but sometimes those pictures on pinterest look way too good... right now it's oatmeal cookies.
We not only had thunderstorms, but plenty of Tornado warnings to go with them. I am really bad at accepting that tornadoes are real. Is that ridiculous? I see pictures of them and the destruction they cause, but I don't know if I can ever take them seriously till I see one myself. WoW I am asking for trouble.
So when the sirens ring and the news announces tornado warnings, I kind of just curl up with Max on the couch and watch Harry Potter.
