Baby Yoga

For the past few weeks, Christian has been desperately trying to learn how to crawl.

He has already mastered rolling over...

...and getting up on all fours...

...but the art of crawling continues to elude him.

However, his attempts at crawling have turned him into a baby yoga master. Here are a few of the yoga poses that Christian can do:


Downward-Facing Dog


Cat Pose

Don't worry Christian. With time you will figure out crawling too!

Christian's 6-Month Pictures - Part 2

We had so much fun getting Christian's six-month pictures taken. After the pictures in his blessing outfit, we dressed Christian in this darling Easter outfit from Granny and Freddy O. He also had his favorite bunny blanket.

You can see Ava's six-month pictures here.

Christian's 6-Month Pictures - Part 1

A couple of weeks ago we took Christian to get his 6-month pictures taken. When we arrived at the studio, we found out that they were running about an hour behind. We were really worried that Christian would be cranky by the time they were ready to take his pictures since it would be his nap time. However, he ended up doing great! Christian is such a sweet little baby and was perfect for his photo shoot. Here are some of our favorite pictures of Christian in his blessing outfit.

Baby Easter Bunny

Christian was very excited to celebrate his first Easter. So excited that he wore these bunny ears for the entire week leading up to Easter (not really, but it sounded good).

The Saturday morning before Easter we took the kids to a neighborhood egg hunt. It was extremely cold this year, so Christian watched from the sidelines. We told Ava to run fast and pick up as many eggs as she could. She did great on the running fast part; not so much on the picking up eggs part. Had it been a race she would have won, as she ran past all the eggs to the other end of the field before stopping to pick up a single egg. Luckily, Ava did much better at our family egg hunt the following day.

As per tradition, we went to Granny O's on Saturday afternoon for some egg painting. Ava was an egg painting virtuoso and literally painted over a dozen eggs (and has been asking to paint more eggs ever since).

Here are Ava and Christian looking darling in their Easter Sunday outfits.

Oh yeah, and there was lots of candy, a delicious Sunday dinner, and Easter baskets too, but we know you all only come here to see pictures of the kids.

On a Mission

Larry's brother Jamison entered the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah on Wednesday, March 24th. Jamison will spend 12 weeks in the MTC learning the Thai language, after which he will serve the remaining two years of his mission in Thailand...

...and we're fairly certain that mom Furr will be counting down all 730 days until son #4 returns safely home from the mission field.

Prior to dropping Jamison off at the MTC, we took some pictures by the Provo temple just across the street. Jamison, who is notorious in the Furr family for always having his eyes closed in pictures, did not disappoint and blinked, winked, or squinted in literally every picture we took including this one with Ava.

Ava has really enjoyed having her uncle Jamison down at BYU this past year and half and will certainly miss his weekend visits while he is gone. Lucky for Ava, her uncle Jordan (Larry's youngest brother) was recently accepted to BYU and will be attending there this fall.

In the meantime, we wish Elder Furr well as he serves his mission to Thailand.

Ava Steals a Kiss

The idea takes hold...

...she plans her approach...

...first an innocent smile as she moves in closer...

...then once his guard is down...

...she steals the kiss...

...as he stares ahead in bewilderment.
