Papaw's visit

Papaw Mark came up to Utah to visit and see baby Jane for the first time. We had so much fun with him but no one had quite as much fun as Jack. He LOVED his Papaw! I of course was really bad about taking pictures but I did get a few while we were waiting to be sat for brunch.

The girls are so sweet with the baby. Bella likes to take care of her and does a really good job!
Two peas in a pod!
I know what your thinking...we don't look anything a like! ;)
Come back son Papaw we miss you already!



My mom has brought to my attention that since Jane was born my updates of Jack on the blog have been few and far between. Its is most certainly not because we have lost any interest in our crazy little 2 year old but more to do with the fact that he hates having his picture taken. But here is a post all about JACK!

These baby blues melt my heart!
He absolutely LOVES playing on his laptop!

When it is warm enough outside I let him play in the back. He loves to be outside!
Still loves his little car.
The other night Dan had put Jack to bed but then had to run to Walgreens. I was down stairs with the baby when I heard "I'm stuck" clear as a bell. I ran upstairs to find this...
Jack had wedged his leg in the banister and got it stuck. It was really in there tight and after my panic wore off I took a moment to laugh and document this classic moment. It's never dull with a 2 year old...not even when they should be sleeping!
Oh did I mention he had a stinky diaper too...lovely!

It's a little known fact that Jack is a genius...Ha (at least according to us he is!). He can tell you what any number is and when we are at the store he is calling them out as we pass by all the prices. He also recently learned his alphabet and can tell you what any letter is as well. He says "thats right" after everything and is so proud of himself. He has his own way of doing things but we wouldn't have it any other way. He is slowly adjusting to the baby but we still have our moments when it's just plain hard! As I am typing he is having a complete meltdown I'm not sure why, I don't think he knows either! But he is still the sweetest little boy around. Jacky poo we sure do love you!

Blessing, Easter, and Friends...Oh My!

I finally have some pictures from Jane's blessing. These pictures were taken by Kristina and she always does an awesome job.
The day was so sweet and special and Jane was able to be blessed on the same day as her sweet cousin Nora. It was a beautiful day!

My sweet baby!
Jane and Nora

Proud Parents
I love this picture of Gram and Peeps!
These are just some random pictures on a day that Jane was looking extra cute ;)

Easter was a beautiful day and we had fun with Jack. He was really liking his Easter egg hunt especially when he realized there was candy in the eggs. All the sudden the hunt turned into a sprint to the next egg, open it, eat the candy and scan for another egg.

Jane in her after church Easter outfit. I thought t made her look like an Easter egg. Still can't get enough of this girl!

Friends! One of my dearest friends Natalie came to visit. We both have kids the same age and it is so sad that we don't live by each other but it is always such a treat to see one another!
Jack and Lily were too cute together!

Nat and myself with our kiddos. I don't know why I don't have a picture of Lil's cute face :( Nat it was sooo good to see you...I miss you already!
This is Jane and Belle. Beautiful Belle is my cousin Mamie's babe and she is such a doll and so tiny. Her and Jane are basically the same size and I think Belle is about 5 months! So cute!


Oh Danny Boy!

Happy Birthday to the love of my life!

Here are just a few of the reasons why I love this guy so much:

1) He is always up for talking and loves to hear gossip almost as much as I do.
2) He says I look cute even when I don't
3) He tells Jack he is handsome and Jane she is beautiful every single day more then once
5) He is a genius
6) When ever we eat candy he always lets me give him the yucky flavors
7) He tells me he loves me all the time even in the middle of the night when I'm up with the baby.
8) He is THE funniest person I have ever met
9) He is the best father
10) He is my best friend

What would I do without this guy! We love you honey! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!


I just can't get enough!

What would I do without this girl! One thing is for sure life is a whole lot sweeter with her around!
