Three Months!

Well, Lydia is now almost closer to four months but I still want to share some three month pics of her. She has turned into such a sweetheart. She is always happy and my favorite thing is when she will be just sitting there and I will walk up and just smile at her and she will look at me and give me the biggest toothless grin- I love it! She has also discovered her thumb. I know in the future it might be a problem but it is so cute to watch her act fussy and then find her thumb and automatically calm down and fall asleep. She wouldn't take a binkie so I guess a thumb is the next best thing! She is still huge and chubby and I love it. We are finally starting to get some kind of a schedule and it makes having two kids much easier. Some days are still a little overwhelming but I feel so lucky to have two adorable girls and an amazing husband! Enjoy the pictures:

Fun February!

I have always loved the month of February. The main reason is probably because it is the month of my birthday but that is not the only reason. I love that it is a shortest month, it is the first month that really shows signs of Spring (can't wait!), President's Day (which is like the only holiday we would get off at BYU), and Valentines Day which is just a fun holiday (at least when you are married or with someone). This year has been no exception and it is not over yet. A week from today we leave for California with my parents and are taking the girls to Disneyland! Abigale is pretty excited but a little confused. I showed her pictures of when Jonathan and I went to Disneyworld and she thinks the castle is a temple. Whenever we drive past the Boise Temple she asks to see Mickey. When I tell her it is Jesus' House she says that she wants to see Jesus. The other day she started crying because she wanted to see Jesus. Smart girl!

Here are some pics of our fun month:

I had a great birthday. Since it was on Sunday, it was a pretty low-key day for me but a busy day for Jonathan as he made me dinner, a cake, and took care of the kids most of the day so I could relax. It was perfect. The night before, he picked up some yummy Thai food for us and made one of my favorite desserts- Brownie Sundae and we did it family style like at the restaurants. Here we are getting ready to dive in.

Abigale's babies. She loves to watch me and whatever I do with Lydia, she does with her babies. Yes, that does include feeding them =). Abigale is the best big sister. She loves Lydia so much.

Reading to her:
Helping her color- if you cant tell she is putting the marker in her hand and making her color:
Sharing her toys:
My friend Heidi came over with her kids and we made sugar cookies. It was a lot of fun and worth the mess and sugar high Abigale had all day from the cookie dough, frosting, and cookies she kept sneaking. Thanks Heidi- sorry I didnt get more pictures.

Valentines Day Dresses- Thanks Mom!

I didn't take any pictures of Valentines Day but just so I dont forget I want to write about our great day. Jonathan sent me beautiful flowers and since he had a to work a few hours on Saturday, I dropped the kids off at my parents and went to his office. While he was working I decorated his car and put all his favorite treats inside. I left him a note and told him to meet me at Macaroni Grill (one of our favorites) where we were able to enjoy a nice lunch date. We then walked through the mall for a little while until Lydia needed to eat and we had to pick up the kids but it was a great day! Thanks Babe! I love you!
