Do You Have Cool Moves?

Our kids love to play a game on the trampoline where everyone shows off their "cool moves". It is so funny to watch them try to come up with new stuff. The other day, Michael and I joined in. Please pay no attention to the fact that I look 6 months pregnant in this, oh the joys of having just had a baby! Enjoy some of our coolest moves!

Smiley Boy!

These have been happening more and more frequently recently. I love it! They are still hard to capture on camera since he is not sure about the weird noise my camera makes. Too cute for words, I love baby grins!

I Love My Sister!

Joshua loves loves loves Alyna and let me tell you I love that he loves her as well. She has been so helpful with him. She changes diapers, gets him dressed, rocks him to sleep, basically anything I need short of nursing him, she is up for! She is an incredible little mommy, I am so blessed to have her help!

Joshua is 1 Month Old!

Joshua turned a month old the other day, I cannot believe how fast time flies. We estimate he weighs about 11 lbs. now, though he doesn't go in for another official weigh in until 2 months. At 2 weeks he was weighing in at 9 lbs. 7 oz., big boy! He is healthy and happy and doing wonderful. He is such a good baby, just happy to be here. He has been by far the best sleeper of our children. Starting at birth, he has gone down at night between 8:30 and 9 and sleeps until 5, wakes up to nurse and goes back to sleep. Such a blessing! He loves watching everyone around him and loves being held by his sister. He is starting to smile a lot now and is so interactive. He is also the first of our boys to be a daddy's boy even though they are nursing. Usually our boys our mommy's boys until they wean and then they are quickly won over by dad, but this one seems to already love daddy so much! Here are some photos of our Joshua at 1 month...

Easter Baskets!

Easter at Grandma and Papa's House

Easter Sunday we went over to Grandma and Papa's house after Church. We had a great Easter dinner and hunted eggs. We were also able to celebrate cousin Kobe's birthday. I wish the weather would have cooperated a little better, but we really needed the rain around here, so I guess it was a good thing.

Easter Sunday Church

What a dreary day Easter turned out to be this year. Our photos were sadly taken huddled on the porch trying to not get rained on. Luckily it stopped for a few minutes so we could get a family photo in front of the Temple.

Dyeing Easter Eggs

On Saturday, I decided we needed to dye some eggs. We were so unprepared due to the sickness that had been around the previous week, so I pulled out the food coloring, vinegar, eggs, and crayons and we went to work! They weren't the most fancy eggs ever, but we ended having a great time and the kids were so creative. Of course, Noah requested Michael helping him so that he could have superhero eggs!

Ward Easter Egg Hunt

On Good Friday, our ward had an Easter Egg Hunt and Dinner. We were recovering from sickness at our house, but were glad to get to go. We had a great time and the kids loved getting to hunt the eggs!

Alyna Loses a Tooth!

Alyna lost her first tooth on April 14th. I can't believe my baby is old enough to be losing her baby teeth. She has been waiting impatiently to start this process since all of her friends around her have been losing teeth for a while now. She pulled it out herself and was excited to get a dollar from the tooth fairy. She now has a wiggly one right next to one she lost, so I think she will be even more toothless soon!
