Brody is talking. He coos and babbles at whoever will talk to him. It is so cute. But he almost always talks with his hands in his mouth like he is doing in this video.

Brody's First Sunday at Church

On Sunday we took Brody to church for the first time. We decided that he is finally ready. He is getting so big and strong. And now that we only have to have the monitor on when he is not being watched, we figured we could leave it at home. He was such a good boy at church. He slept through sacrament meeting and half of sunday school. Then he wanted to kick and play through Relief Society. I was a little uncomfortable. I've never had a baby at church before and mine was the only one in R.S. so I cringed at every coo. He probably wasn't loud at all; I was just nervous. It is definately going to take some getting used to for me. But I loved being at church. I loved sitting with my husband and my little boy.

What Team? WILDCATS!!

And Opening for High School Musical Tour on Ice...

K.O. Knudson Middle School
Derek's big break took place last night at the New Orleans Ice Arena. But it wasn't quite what they had planned. Derek and Megan put together a big production of singing and dancing with 35 students. When we arrived at the arena, they found out that they were only supposed to be singing so the stage they had to work with was only about 5' by 5'. After surveying the area and a run through during sound checks, they decided that half of the cast could still dance along the perimeter of the arena while the other half sang on the stage. This meant that they could only do some of the basic steps they had learned. Derek, Megan, and the students were disappointed that they couldn't perform the numbers they had worked so hard on, but they went out and did a great job anyway.
The best part of the whole night... while they were performing at sound checks Chucky Klapow, the choreographer of all three High School Musical movies, was watching. He was so impressed he asked to meet the school's choreographer. He told Derek that he got chills watching the students dance. After sound checks Chucky even came and talked to the students to boost their morale. It really helped get them pumped up after the disappointing news. But best of all, it made my husband's night! So maybe he didn't get the big break he was hoping for. (He hoped he'd get noticed and be offered a part as one of the Volturi in the upcoming Twilight movie.) But he did get a compliment from one of his idols.
