Grandma "R"

This is the only picture I can find of my sweet Grandma. I'm sad I'm going home to Utah to celebrate her life and she wont be there. I'm happy to know that she is in a place surrounded with love and joy. I will miss you Grandma and I love you forever and ever!

Happy, happy birthday my baby boy Everest!

Everest,

You have been talking about your birthday "fish-ie cake" for weeks now. Your first birthday: I was whaling and gnashing my teeth over the fact that my baby wasn't a newborn anymore. The second birthday: was exhausting to get through with all of your temper tantrums. Now the third birthday... It was so much fun because YOU were having fun. You were happy to be getting presents, cake and you loved playing with your friends. You are my first born. You are the person who made my heart grow bigger than I ever thought possible. From the second I heard your little cry and saw your little face I knew my life was no longer about me... It was about you! I love you Everest to the moon and back!

Love, Mom

9 Months

Photobucket

I am starting to hate this monthly blog post. It's a sad reminder that my "newborn" is slowly becoming not-so "newborn" anymore. Father time continues to tick on and I continue to watch my babies get older. I'll admit this past month I was convinced my 8 month old had colic. Yes, colic. He was crying non stop. I figure it's teeth... But, here we are a few weeks later and still NO teeth. However the non-stop crying has stooped. I assume it was just a phase.... as EVERYTHING is with kids! Today Slade had his wellness check up. He rang in at the whopping 1% in weight. ONE PERCENT. I had to practically beg my doctor not to do blood work and stool samples on him. Everest was in the 3% in weight at Slade's age. I guess we just have tiny little boys. (does this mean our girls will be huge and our boys will be small?? scary how sometimes that works out.) He's healthy and right where he should be develop mentally so.... no worries? Right. He hasn't gained any weight since his 7 month check up... not even one ounce.
My snugly, smiley Slade...
ooh I just love you SO much!

two peas

Today was the first day in a verrrry long time that the sun was actually out. We’ve had pure “Seattle weather” here in Moscow. It seems like I am craving everything that has to do with the sun and summer! I NEED (want) garage selling season to begin. I need my babies outside 24/7 with nothing else on but a diaper and a bottle of bubbles in there hand. I’m excited out of my mind because today I signed up to rent a 20 X 20 foot gardening plot in my community. It’s going to be FABULOUS! ... just wait you’ll see! These cute little pictures were snapped in Palouse, WA. Only the best little town in the world for antique shopping! It’s the closest thing I’ve got to garage selling....
