February 2013 featuring Luke's 8th birthday and baptism, Baby Aaron's blessing and a couple of pics from Christmas

Here are a few pics of Baby Aaron Edward Lee who was born on December 28, 2012.  He was 8lbs 8oz and 21 "long.  He had super nice brown hair and then it all fell out!  Oh well, he is growing it back in now.
Aaron is, as Jesse would say, definitely not starving to death. He is 10 weeks old and already weighs 15 lbs and wears 6 month clothes. He had little newborn outfits that he couldn't even wear right out of the hospital! His 0-3 month clothes fit him for a couple of weeks. I'm not sure what percentage of my milk is heavy cream but I'm thinking it's at least 30%. LOVE THAT CHUNKY BABY!
Luke is 8 years old.  Crazy!  He is sooooo fun.  He is definitely the "joker" of the house.  He's always telling jokes and doing silly voices and accents to try to make the other kids laugh.  The other aspect of his funny personality is that he teases...all the time.  It seems like if there is ever any kid in the house yelling at someone to "STOP BUGGING ME" it's usually Luke who is the bugger.
His baptism was absolutely beautiful.  Mia gave a great talk on baptism, Jesse performed the ordinance (which went nice and smoothly) and Grampa Johnson gave a talk on the Holy Ghost.  Jesse then confirmed him and gave him a sweet blessing.  Gramma and Grampa Johnson, Lexi, Octavia and Malaki came and joined us for both the baptism and also Aaron's blessing the next day and it was so fun to celebrate with them!  My kids LOVE cousin Malaki and we got to have some cake and a pinata for Luke's birthday with family all around!

Farewell Facebook

I know, I seems a little crazy to think of taking a Facebook break.  Many of you know that the word "moderation" is not a part of my vocabulary.  Everything from eating to reading...I go a little crazy and it's all or nothing.  Same thing with Facebook.  I found myself checking and re-checking multiple times a day to make sure there was nothing new that I had missed in the last 5 minutes.  I can't just check once in the evening and call it good.

So......I read a talk by President Uchtdorf called, "Of Regrets and Resolutions" where he says that people who are about to die always say they wished they had spent more time with the people they loved.  I ALREADY HAVE ISSUES WITH THAT!  I DON'T NEED FACEBOOK MAKING IT WORSE!  Sorry I yelled.  Anyway, that's just my personal confession and reason I'm giving up Facebook for a bit.  We will see how it goes but I have a feeling that I'm not going to miss it that much.  I might actually start calling and talking to people again!  GASP!
