We celebrated Porter's first birthday yesterday at my sisters house. What a grand time! I guess Porter didn't like all the attention; he had a few meltdowns. Happy Birthday baby!

Ben and Porter watching the fireworks... well, at least Ben was. It was past Porter's bedtime and he wasn't too happy to be out in the cold.

Porter likes to help too!

Porter mimics very well and is now clapping and can sound like an Indian. He even attempts to do both at the same time. Believe it or not, he is even taking steps! Our baby will be walking any day now. AH! Porter just got his first two teeth. They came in at the same time. He's changing so much and talks nonstop all day long. We love it all!
Porter and I took a little trip to Montana this past week to visit my parents. He did okay on the trip - he really doesn't like to be locked up for very long. We had a great visit except my dad had injured his shoulder and couldn't really play with Porter. You can see from this video he got some good laughs out of him though. Porter loves his grandparents and even adapted to Kipper (their puppy). Thanks mom and dad for letting us stay with you!

THE camping spot. This particular spot was "discovered" and Ben was very excited to camp here.

If Ben and I both happen to be up in the morning, we like to bring Porter into bed to play. He's so happy in the morning. It's a great start to the day.
I used the sling a lot while we were camping and Porter didn't seem to mind.
Porter and mama trying to get warm by the fire.
We didn't want to let Porter crawl around outside because he's notorious for finding the smallest of parcels and putting them in his mouth, so I left him in the tent for a bit so he could be free. I checked on him a few minutes later to find him just laying there... then daddy peeked in.

The mighty hunter! Ben's new passion is spear fishing. He made his own launcher that you can see in this picture. As you can imagine, he was very excited to try it out.
I was enjoying myself watching Ben and his dad attempt to get some fish. The scenery was gorgeous and just a tad on the windy side.
Porter is a hot body like me and got quite uncomfortable a couple of times so we dipped him in the fountains to cool him off. If only I could have done the same....
The happy couple!
Grandma and Porter at the reception. It was the perfect weather for this outdoor reception in Jess' family backyard. We enjoyed food, music...
...and a bit of dancing!

A couple Saturdays ago, we went up into the mountains for a hot dog roast. Unfortunately, this particular area is an open range and the cows weren't very willing to share their spot with us. Ben shewed them away when we first arrived, but within minutes they came back. It was a fun little adventure nonetheless.
