3 months


They love each other so much :)




video

As you can see, Isabella is growing bigger and bigger. She is so much fun and I love waking up to her smiling face every morning. Abby can't get enough of her little sister too. Most of the time I have to tell her to give Bella some space b/c she loves to get right up to her face and smother her :) Some things that Bella is doing now are:
She plays copy cat. If I stick out my tongue, make noises with my lips, or get wide eyed and raise my eyebrows, she will do the same.

She HAS to fall asleep with her entire arm over her face. She does NOT like the sunlight in her eyes when she's tired.

She absolutely loves baths now. It took her a while to get used to but she will kick and splash when she gets in her tub and she LOVES have warm water poured on her belly.

If she doesn't have her binky, she will stick almost her whole fist in her mouth! pretty impressive :)
Abby is almost writing her name by herself. This picture was with minimal assistance (me placing the marker on the board so she knows where each new letter starts)

Straight A student

I have been trying to have a "school lesson" with Abby everyday for as long as her tiny attention span will allow me to. She already knows the alphabet, shapes, colors, and she can count to 15. Now i'm trying to teach her to write her name. She is such a quick learner! Here is her accomplishment from today :)

Take me out to the ball game......

Since I FINALLY got my camera working, I decided to go a little camera happy today. We went to Jesse's baseball game and even though he hates taking pictures, I got him to pose for one with the kids and his brother :) (their team won 20-3)


One of Jesse's besties from high school came and played as well. Here is Abby playing with Bryan's 2 kids.

Even Isabella is getting into the World Cup. I think she was fixated on Christiano Ronaldo from Portugual. It's ok Bella, he's a hottieI loved this outfit on her today. Holla to Brandon, Lindsi, and Crew for it!

I love these little girls :)

Video of the day

I know I have been posting a lot these past few days, but she was in such a good mood I had to share!

This is the first time she has taken a binky other than the HUGE one that they give you at the hospital. Yippee!

8 Weeks

Isabella is getting so big and is so alert! I love that she is starting to smile when we talk to her. She also will track me around the room and will start grunting or crying if I leave her sight. It's a curse and a blessing :) I love my little girls! I am such a lucky mom!

7 Weeks

Isabella is getting so big! She is starting to smile a lot more and is more aware of her surroundings. Her eyes will follow me as I walk around the room and sometimes she even fusses if I leave her sight. Abby is still a great big sister and still wants to hold and kiss her all the time, which is a blessing and a curse, especially when she is sleeping of eating :)

Sunday's Best




To my family members who see this. i am not responsible foe her outfit. Also, she does not have ANY Red Sox outfits so feel free to send them my way! :)

5 years

Wow how the time has flown by. I can't believe we have been married for 5 years! My parents took the girls so that we could go spend a few hours together. Much to Jesse's delight, all I wanted to do was play outside, something I hadn't done in a long time! So we decided to go play around of golf. Considering I hadn't played in a year, I did rather well! We had such a wonderful time together and it really was a perfect day. I am the luckiest girl in the world to have such a wonderful man to spend eternity with. I love you more and more as each day passes. I can't wait to see what our future brings us.

Two Peas in a Pod

Abby loves her sister so much! I was so worried that Abby was going to be jealous but she has just been an angel to her sister. I am so thankful to have such a beautiful loving family.
Since my parents are taking back their awesome camera, and mine is broken, I figured I would take and post as many good pictures of the girls as possible. So here ya go!

First Doctor's visit

I had been dreading taking Isabella to the doctor ever since she was born. For the first 2 years of life, almost every doctor's visit involves shots. It was time for Isabella's second PKU test (aka the heel prick test). Within 2 weeks she had grown to 9lbs 5oz. She was still 20 inches long. She was such a trooper during the test. I also wanted to mention our new Dr. We love Dr. Bosworth, who was recommended by one of my bestie's aunts. He specializes in child respiratory issues which is perfect b/c our last doctor didn't have a clue why Abby was always getting sick in the winter time and having a cough that sounded like she had been smoking for 20 years. Horay for good doctors! Here is cute little Bella before the doctor's appointment.

Isabella's Blessing

Isabella's blessing day was very special. We had a lot of family and friends in attendance and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Jesse was able to get Bella dressed and all ready to go. I was stressing out and running late as I always do. Both of my parents were in town and I was also giving a talk in Sacrament meeting. My talk was about faith (see the end of the post for the talk). I had also asked Mama Teri (who has an AMAZING voice) to sing "I Know that My Redeemer Lives." Jesse of course gave our daughter a beautiful blessing. After church we had a brunch at the house. Unfortunately, we forgot to take out the camera so there are not a lot of pictures, but here is what I have.

The first 8 pictures were her professional ones. Kinda stinks that they wouldn't post th pictures that were edited with all the special effects but here ya go!







The beautiful tulips that my friend Lindsey donated for the blessing.

Dad's Birthday

For my Dad's birthday we went to Chili's. My mother and I went to the store and got some special candles for his dessert beforehand. When the waitress came to bring him his birthday cake, he thought it was for someone else and was happy that someone else shared his birthday! His reaction when he realized it was for him was priceless. Again, we didn't have a camera with us so here are some cute pics with him and his little princesses. Happy Birthday Daddy! We love you!

Abby's first haircut

I took Abby to the Helquist Salon for her first haircut. My friend Britney, who goes to my church, has her own mini salon in her house. Her hubby turned part of the basement into one! It's so snazzy! She took about 2-3 inches off to we got some really cute locks to go into her baby album that I have yet to start. Yes I know i'm terrible!
