Noah is a stud...

Noah had a court of honor.  He got several awards.  I couldn't be more proud of the young man he is becoming.  I look forward to many more court of honors and for him to earn his Eagle Scout.  Noah is a remarkable young man and I absolutely adore him.

Mommy/Daughter Ponytails

So Kaitlyn's hair on the top of her head is long enough for a ponytail so we had mommy/daughter ponytail day where we both sported our ponytails!  Having a little girl is just too much fun!

Kaitlyn turns 6 months old...

Kaitlyn turned 6 months old today.  I cannot believe that she is getting so big already!  I love her cuteness.  She tries to roll over from her back to her tummy but hasn't quite mastered that yet.  She loves baby food, bathtime (with bubbles and lots of splashes), she smiles and giggles all the time, she loves to eat her fingers and her toes, she sits up with help and is getting better and better all the time, she has enough hair for a little ponytail and mini pigtails, she cut her 1st tooth, and she is just so beautiful!  She is such a joy and has brought so much happiness to our family.  I can't imagine life without her!
So since she is now 6 months we let her have her 1st taste of real people food.  Noah's 1st food was a breadstick from little caesers.  Kaitlyn's was a cheesestick from pizza hut!  hahahahahaha SHE LOVED IT!
Oh and check out her cute pigtails!!!!

Snow Day!

So apparently Colorado is not as equipped as Utah is when it comes to snow.  It snowed about 4 inches and school closed and so did post.  Chris got to come home early and surprise us with a day at home with all four of us.  When he came home we were outside taking Kaitlyn on the sled for the 1st time.  She just sat there like "whatever" and we were all having a great time.  I really enjoy being a mother to two amazing kids and the wife to one amazing man.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here are my two little Valentine's!

Nana came to visit...

My mom came to visit us and meet Kaitlyn for the 1st time in person.  I have been waiting for this to happen for so long.  It was so much fun.  We laughed, shopped, ate, and just enjoyed each others company.  Kaitlyn and I got to go to pick up my mom.  Here is us waiting for Nana at the airport...
My mom and I were able to get pedicures and manicures together.  This is something that we both enjoy and it is always tons more fun when we can do it together.
Nana enjoyed her time loving all over Kaitlyn and Noah got to teach her how to shoot his airsoft gun in our garage.  It was great.  We also got to go see a movie while she was here and eat out a ton.  We went to Texas Roadhouse one night and I told the people it was her birthday.  She had to sit on the saddle while they sang to her.  hahahahahaha It was great!

Nana was able to go to church with us and she also made herself at home helping out in the kitchen.  Boy is it great when your mom comes to visit!  I love her so much.  She is not only my mom but she is my best friend.

Trip to the ER and down some stairs...

Kaitlyn is finally ready to start eating some baby food.  We have been trying her with it since she was about 4 1/2 or 5 months old.  Each week we would introduce a new food.  We started with squash and then went to Hawaiian delight (because her dad loves that stuff), gave her apples, and then introduced BANANAS!  Well miss Kaitlyn loves her some bananas but they don't like her so much.  She broke out in a rash all over her face.  Nothing serious but she needed to be seen by a Dr.  The Dr's office was closed so I asked Chris if he would take her to the ER while I took Noah to his Scout Court of Honor.  Noah was getting some awards so we didn't want to miss it and like I said Kaitlyn was fine just wanted to get a Dr's opinion.
I think Kaitlyn was just happy to be naked.  She loves to only wear her diaper and loves it even more when you take it off for bathtime and diaper changing time.  She is too funny!

Noah did great at his Court of Honor.  He lead the flag ceremony and got several awards.  He is such a great scout and he loves it.  So on our way out the back of the church we noticed it started snowing, bad!  We walked out the back of the church and well...I slipped down several stairs and bruised my butt pretty bad.  Luckily no one saw but Noah.  He got a good laugh out until he realized I was really hurt.  We hurried to the car so I could get out a good cry.  My butt was bruised really bad and I had a rough time for about a week or two afterward.  It was horrible.  Good new though is that Kaitlyn was fine and Noah got tons of awards.
