Still a little ol' thing!




There is no way that five months has gone by already!!! That is how I feel anyway. This little munchkin is such a joy to have in our home. I love to snuggle her every chance I get!
Loves:
baths
diaper changes/being naked
getting her nose suctioned
(I know! Crazy kid right?!)
smiling
giggling
cooing (she just might possibly be louder than her brother soon when she's talking)
tummy time
anyone who will give her attention
chewing on fingers
excersaucer. She actually smiles at it when I put her in
hates:
going to sleep
her medicine
when she is not getting someone's full attention constantly
eating. Doesn't want to sit still long enough to drink a bottle.
having a dirty diaper
most baby toys
car rides

Love you Mim!

Happy Birthday Babe!

Seriously. I know I am a lucky girl to get to be with you forever! I really don't tell you enough how you are most important person in my life. I have loved growing "old" with you and feel blessed everyday that I have with you! Happy Birthday Mark Allen! I love you!

Could have been bad...

Last weekend we were at my sister Jenny's house to celebrate my mom and Kaiya's birthday. The kids were having a blast as usual playing outside. Jaxon found one of Hayden's helmets and became quite attached. He looked like such a space cadet we kept making fun of him (not so that he could hear of course) and I kept trying to get him to take it off. Even after we came inside he insisted on keeping it on. Good thing he didn't listen to his mom because he fell of the papasan chair and hit his head right smack on the corner of the sharp brick fireplace. That goofy little helmet saved me a major trip to the emergency room!!

Best Job in the World

At the end of each day, I feel physically, mentally, and emotionally drained....in a good way. Taking care of my kids takes everything in me, but at the same time, it is the best part of me. Being a mom of course is harder than I ever imagined, but it is also more beautiful than I ever imagined. I cannot picture my life without these two little munchkins. At times during the day I run out of patience, get frustrated, or simply feel like I have given all that I can give, and then I put my babies to sleep. They are so beautiful, peaceful, and perfect. I feel so blessed to be entrusted in the care of these children. At the end of each day, Heavenly Father reminds me how blessed I am and I look forward to each and everyday that I have to stay at home with my children.




Gonna be a great weekend; Great life!

I count my blessings everyday for being raised by my angel mother. I don't know where I would be without this woman. She is the ultimate example of someone with unconditional Christ-like love. I love you mom.




Mark is also blessed to have been raised by such a wonderful mother. Happy Mother's Day Mommies!
