Sammi and Spencer!!

Yesterday afternoon while Sariah was sleeping Sammi wanted to hold Spencer while she watched TV, I stayed right there and watched her hold him and took some pictures! She was so happy to hold him and he was very content as you can see below!! Later that evening I had Spencer sitting with us on the couch and Sammi went and got her books and started to read to him!! It was so cute and brought back memories of when she would read to Sariah when she was a baby!

Hanging out!!
Can you tell Sammi made a really loud noise! ha ha!!

Reading to baby brother!

Fun Day At The Park!

On Friday my friend Andrea and I decided to take the kids to the park! Andrea has two kids a little boy Landyn who is 2 and a little girl Lilly who was born in October. Our kids get along soo well, the girls just love playing with Landyn! The weather was really nice that day so they played for a couple of hours! They would have played longer but we needed to get them back for naps so we were not paying for it later!! Here are some pictures from our fun day! Sariah and Landyn!!
The best of friends!!!

Our Sweet Sammi!!

So I had to blog about how truly blessed I am to have such a sweet little girl!! Yes we all have our moments but for the most part Sammi is such a sweet little girl! She loves to help me and loves to help others!! She loves playing with Sariah and loves to try to teach her!! She loves her new baby brother and loves to be a little mommy to him already!! She is growing up so fast and lately I keep saying to myself "Did she just say what I think she said?" Not expecting her to say such grown up stuff!! She asks lots of questions and really remembers EVERYTHING you say!!! I wish I had her memory, its no joke when I say everything!! Here are a couple pictures I took this week while playing!! Sammi!!!
Best Friends!!

Guess Who Slept Through The Night???

Yes our little guy slept through the night for the first time last night!! Whoo Hoo!!! I put him down at 9:30pm and he didn't wake up until 5:00am!!!! I know I shouldn't get too excited, but I am hoping for another one of those nights!!! He is starting to stay awake longer during the day now and the last two days have been kinda the same routine!! I love when there is more of a routine!!! Little Spencer is smiling all the time now and is even cooing and just started to bat at objects!! I cant believe it!! This is going way to fast!!! Hanging with Daddy!!
Smiling it up!!!

Such a sweet little boy!!!

Happy Birthday To Our Sweet Sariah Jo Jo!!

Sariah 6 days old

Our sweet Jo Jo turned two this month!!! I cant believe it!! These past two years have gone by so fast!! Sariah has turned into such an outgoing sweet little girl!! She def. is not as quiet as we all thought she was going to be!!! She keeps us on our toes that's for sure!! She loves playing with her sister and loves to play with her babies, dancing, reading and dress up! She loves going to the park. And loves her daddy dearly!!! She is adjusting pretty well to having a new little brother and loves talking to him and helping me change his diaper. She loves to sit next to me while I nurse and cuddle with me!! She is talking really well and you can really understand her!! We are truly blessed to be her parents!! Our day started out by taking Sammi to pre-school and then off to the Dr.s we went for her two year check up! I know, I will never do that again!! What a mean mom!! It was quite the Dr.s app. but that's another blog entry!! My mom had called and sang happy birthday to her so Sariah kept saying "Happy Me!!" the whole day! It was soo cute!! We later picked Sammi up from pre-school and headed over to the park!! We then went home and took naps!! I wanted to have a little birthday party for her with all her little friends, but thought we would skip this one seeing things are crazy here right now, since we have a new baby and lack of sleep!!! We did have a little family party for her the night of her birthday! I had a stake RS meeting so I didn't get home until like 8:45!! Spencer was in charge of getting a cake. He did an excellent job as you can see below! Sariah LOVES Dora so it was perfect!! We sang Happy Birthday to her which she absolutely loved and opened presents!! She didn't get to bed until 11:00pm poor thing!! But she enjoyed her special day!! Thank you to all of you that called to wish her a Happy Birthday and to all who sent such wonderful presents!! It was so thoughtful!!! Happy Birthday Sariah Jo! We love you!! Her Dora Cake
Look at that face!! We were all singing to her!!!

Two Months Old Already!!!

Our little guy is already two months old!! I swear since having three children I wonder all the time how my day can go by soo fast!! Its just CRAZY!!! We are all enjoying our sweet baby!! The girls love there baby brother and constantly want to hold and touch him!! We still have to be real careful with Sariah around him but she is getting better! Sammi on the other hand is absolutely great with him! She loves to sing to him and loves getting him to smile at her!! He is such a good little baby!!! I am soo blessed to have such a great little boy, I couldn't ask for anything more!! We took him last week to his eight week check up and the Dr. said he looked great!! Here are his stats!! He weighs 11lbs which puts him in the 10-25%, he is 21 1/2 inches long which puts him in the 5%, and his head circumference is 15 1/4 inches which puts him in the 5-10%. He hated the bath at first but is now liking it!!
All ready for bed!!

Happy Halloween!!!

What a hectic day Halloween was!! We woke up and Sammi had gymnastics and then we were off to find Spencer and I a costume for the Halloween party we were all going too! What a nightmare that turned out to be!! We finally found a costume for us at 4:30 pm and the party was at 6:00!! And we didn't even get a picture of us!! We were a receptacle and a plug!! ha ha!! The costume was quite funny looking!! The kids had a lot of fun at the party we went to and loved going trick r treating!! They got lots of candy that we went through and put Sariahs separate from Sammi's, (because of her nut allergy) she had no clue and was just so happy to have some candy!! They ask for candy all day!! Especially our little Sammi! She has a major sweet tooth!! It was all gone by day 3!! My mom bought the girls there costumes and she brought them when she came to see the baby being born. The kids looked soo cute! Sammi was Ariel, Sariah was Tinker Bell and the baby was a dragon!!
