Three Months Old!

Babygirl is such a great baby! The boys just love her and we just can't get enough! At the boys checkup yesterday, i stuck her on the scale and with wet diaper and clothes, she was 15lbs! (not bad, but GJ was that at 2 months)
Not laughing yet, but you can tell she is so close!

 I just can't stop kissing those cheeks. 
 As with the rest of my babies, she refuses a sasser (pacifier) but she does occasionally find her thumb. 
How can you not love all that chub!?! Now if she would just sleep more than 4 hours at night...

GJ Turns 4!

GJ had his birthday yesterday and chose an Elmo cake (not my first choice, but it is HIS birthday, not mine)
I can’t believe he is 4! Sometimes he is the sweetest boy ever, gives me hugs and kisses, loves to pray, plays by himself easily and helps me out, especially with the baby. He is also tries my patience as he loves to wrestle/fight with his brother, get in his sister’s face, have to wear Lightening McQueen jammies whether they are clean or not, sleep with tiny toys that get lost easily, always request to eat hot dogs and popsickles, and enforce his sense of justice. 

For example, at the park today, he tripped over a root and fell down. He came over crying and I tried to comfort him and ask if he wanted to go inside to go to swimming lessons and be done with the park. He responded, "I want to hit it!" and proceeded to go back to the tree and hit its bark. That is just classic GJ. He has to make sure everyone is even, whether it is his brother, or a classmate, or a tree, or the table he just ran into, there will be retribution. With the latter, it usually hurts his hand and the table gets another slap. My oh my, at least he was finally potty trained before 4!

We love you GJ!!!

MK's blessing day

 At least we are all in the picture.
 Tad did a great job.
 As usual, she was a darling. 
 Linny, Matt, Linc, Ace, Grandpa and Grandma all came up. I did not end up with a picture of any of the Days. We had a great barbecue after church then a few friends over for desserts. 
Sweet sleeping baby. 
 Here is a picture of just the dress. 
I nixed the sleeves and made some major readjustments to accommodate her growing figure. (And the dress was done by 10pm, not 3am as said husband was predicting). It was a great day and fabulous weather.


Last year we bought U2 tickets for our anniversary. We debated a long time whether it was worth it, but finally did and and within 2 days, Bono announced he needed back surgery and the concert was delayed a year. Slightly disappointing, especially as we were hoping to have a new baby the next spring. Luckily it worked out though, thanks to Linny coming up with her newborn and watching MK, though she wasn't too thrilled about a bottle. 

 Tad of course it the real die hard fan, but I knew most of the songs and had a great time. We park at the UofU and just walked a little ways to the stadium. This was early on, but you can see below, by the start it was pretty full.

 The stage was pretty cool and they had amazing effects. 
Since I haven't really been to a concert since NKOTB in 7th grade (remember that Julie and Shelly?), I was pretty easily impressed, though Bono was a little goofy to me, but I guess you kind of have to be. 
The Fray opened up and I thought they did a great job. I couldn't get my picture to turn, but you can kind of see the cool stage here. They had the main stage, and then this full circle they could walk around, you can see the lead singer in the white jacket walking around in the front of the 2nd stage. Glad we could go and hopefully we'll do it again someday.

Two months

MK is growing faster than a weed and has the chub to prove it. Here she is with her brothers, who do you think she looks more like? She really is a doll and even though she is up every 3-4 hours, she is a great sleeper in between. She loves her brothers and does not love a bottle.

Getting ready for Summer!

Yes, I am ready for the 4th of July. My favorite holiday. I have at least 5 red, white and blue outfits ready for her. I got this one 5 years ago for SM in case he was a girl and have been saving it since. And I know I am a hypocrite and make fun of babies with bows bigger than their head, but its for America and is just so cute (thanks Amy!)
 In other news I actually finished her blessing dress. 
 Too bad it fits like a glove and will never make it to June. Back to the drawing board, at least for the top, I think I can make the skirt portion work. Oh well, it was dang cute! Man, she is getting chubby fast! (though she still has to gain 3 pounds in the next two weeks to be as chubby as GJ was)

Family of 5

Sometimes its not real that I have 3 kids. I sure love darling baby M, as do the boys. Thanks to my sweet friend katherine for taking some fabulous shots when she was just 3 days old. 

 (Not photoshopped faces, everyone was actually smiling)

Growing baby.

They say she is was 8' 2" on Monday and 8' 12" on Friday, so I am convinced someone is wrong, but either way, she is having no problem putting on weight and at 3 weeks, is above her birth weight. This may be our last week in newborn clothes. Its been a good week, but Nana has been here so I have been able to run lots of errands and haven't yet felt the difficulties of 3 kids. She is going to work tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes. 
 Getting some cheeks
 ARGG, I'm a pirate! 
 Goofy grin
 Attempt at family picture
 Nana has been here taking care of us. I'm not even going to think about when she will be leaving. 
 Despite the cry face, she does love me best. 
 Curly hair after bath.

Baby Overload

Sorry, but I have a lot of sisters making requests who live to far away to snuggle with my little cutie so this is the next best thing I can do. 

 So tiny!
 Mostly she just sleeps. 
 First bath, which she never cried once (so unlike the boys)
 All snuggled and getting dry. 
 My favorite outfit. 
  She rarely cries, but last night she let me know we were done with pictures. You can really see her "abnormal" gumline in this shot too. 
Loves to be all snuggled up. So perfect.
Yesterday was my due date and it was so nice to ALREADY have her out. Now if I could only sleep on my stomach and for more than 3 hours in a row, life would be grand...
