I'd like to dedicate this little post to Zach. Cheesy, yes...but I want to do it all the same. Some of the little things I love about my husband:
**He's not afraid to tell me that he's always right...to be honest...he really is.
***He works his tail off in a job he hates so we can live with a little less stress
*He's a genius but doesn't let anyone know it...It has taken me two years to begin to comprehend how brilliant he really is and I still don't think I've completely tapped into all that he is.
**He holds my hand...all the time
*He doesn't freak out like I do when the bank accounts start lookin a little empty.
**He keeps my head on straight...it's quite the job.
***He laughs at me when I say stupid things
*He has such a strong Testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ...it's incredible.
**When something needs to get done...he gets it done...this man doesn't back out of anything!
*He doesn't wear his emotions on his sleeve. Sometimes I curse this attribute but I love that I don't know everything he feels and then piece by piece he shows me. It's so nice when I get a little realization of how much he loves me.
**He puts up with my occasional lack of common sense.
***He loves his family
*He eats at least two bowls of Cereal everyday.
**I catch him eating chips and salsa with some other food that shouldn't be eaten with chips and salsa.
***He thinks I'm beautiful, even in my ugliest moments.
*He encourages me to be better while making me feel good about the person I am right now.
**He makes up songs in the morning and sings them loud enough for the neighbors to hear...they usually include something about the dog.
***Bruce is one of his best friends and part of Zach would be gone if Bruce were to go.
*He wants the very best for everyone.
***For being a dad of 3 weeks, he's dang good at it
**He's everything I could ever want in a man.
I'm sure there are plenty of things I missed but there are a few of the reasons I love him so much. He is my #1 and I'm glad I get to spend the eternities by his side. I love you, Babe!

So he might not be ready to pass the sacrament yet, but he sure looks good in his Sunday best! Canyon enjoyed his first Sacrament meeting...dreaming. By the end of the meeting, although still asleep, we could tell he was about ready for some nourishment, Beteween my doctor's order of "no-church-till-April" and the approaching hunger monster, we decided to head home. We were sure glad to have been able to get the sacrament though:)

Like all newborns, Canyon spends most of his day sleeping... so we didn't think we'd have trouble taking some glamour shots while he was zonked. Little did we know that he is more like his father than I could've ever imagined. The stubborn little guy woke up when we arrived and stayed awake for a full 3 hours. Those three hours were spent cuddling him, feeding him, soothing him....but instead of drifting off into a peaceful slumber...he just stared at the three of us, determined.
I can just see sweet Zach holding him last night telling him, "They are going to try and take pictures of you tomorrow, those darn women. Don't conform buddy, don't conform."
The pictures turned out to be better than I could've hoped for. I don't have any copies yet but if you'd like to see some, visit Jen's blog at http://fausetphotography.blogspot.com/search/label/Newbies

Canyon Walker Hawkins has officially been here a whole week! After one week we've found that he:
likes the bouncy chair to be his bed
dislikes his bed
loves the Binki, just like his mom did
looks more and more like his dad everyday
likes to eat...and often
set up his own eating schedule (every three to four hours) and mom sure enjoys it!
makes the worlds cutest faces
doesn't like his diaper off
LOVES the carseat
likes the part of bath time where warm water is dumped on his head:)
LOVES mom and dad!
