The Golf tournament was such a hit!! The idea was to assign 18 departments a hole, their par number and a theme. From there it was up to each department to design and create a miniature golf hole to be a part of the course. Not only was it cool because Doug Parker golfer along with other officers from US Airways, but it was also cool because the departments completely got into it.
We decided the overall theme for the tournament would be Las Vegas. Departments were assigned hotels and places from Las Vegas to use as their theme for their hole. My department was assigned the Bellagio. Luckily, when Eric and I were first dating his family did a trip to Las Vegas and we spent a lot of time walking around the Bellagio on one of our sight-seeing excursions. I headed up my department's planning, design and execution for the hole.
We got third place in the overall competition and were beat by some truly awesome holes. The first place team, Treasure Island, actually turned a desk into a boat and did an amazing job in decorating and carrying the Pirate theme throughout. The second place team was the Hoover Damn and they actually had a pump with water and a replica of the damn for the ball to play on. Very cool...
Enjoy my miniature tour of the Bellagio hotel in Phoenix. I took about 15 hours to actually hang and decorate everything. I hope you like...

In any case, four new tires later and 4 hours later we got home. Jarem was such a good boy and really is the best baby. He slept through most of the ordeal and just went with the flow. We walked to Denny's from Discount Tire and had dinner there. He was so happy and making so much noise that almost the entire restaurant was in smiles watching him play and shriek. We are so lucky to have Jarem in our lives. He brings us so much happiness and love. Even during a hairy mess (flat tire) he still found a way to keep mommy and Grammy happy and grateful that we got through the whole thing safely. ... Full Post...

Here are a couple of videos from Jarem's 6 month check up. The first one is hilarious... all of the Doctors and Nurses were just Gushing over him... who wouldn't right? The second one is us waiting for the nurse to come back. What do we do? We play of course. Check out the videos after the jump.
So here are the important details. Baby J is 19 lbs 7 ozs, 27" long. Both of those figures are in the 90th percentile for his age. Dr. Sudah said that he's a perfect square! To which mommy said, yeah but he's ANYTHING but boring!

I can't believe it and while I know that everything happens for a reason, I just can't stop myself from thinking about how unfair it is.
To all of our grandparents, if you're reading this, I want to let you know that Jamie, Jarem and I will give you many reasons to be proud of us.
Thank you for being such wonderful influences in our life.

Secondly, Jarem loves to immitate laughing. If you laugh at him he chuckles back. It's so cute! His favorite person to immitate is daddy. They love laughing back and forth at eachother. It's so cute!! Jarem is definitely finding his voice and becoming a lot more vocal. He is growing up so fast! He watches the cats and gets so excited when they walk close to him. Jarem also loves to watch TV. We have to be careful cause it will be on in the background and he'll just stare at it and hone in on the screen. He just cracks us up. Enjoy his big belly in this video
