Happy 7th Birthday Marysa

Marysa is 7 today. She has yet to loose a tooth. I keep telling her the day she looses her first tooth we will throw a party. She is so ready to loose her first tooth. She like to do things late I guess.

She was born four days late. My due date was actually on Caleb's 2nd birthday. She was 8lbs 13 oz when she was born. She was beautiful. She still is. I am not just saying this cause I a her mom. People would say she is a cute and then like a minute later say she really is beautiful.

She is smart. She enjoys reading, she gets that from her dad. She always does her homework and I do not even have to ask her too. Tomorrow is her last day of 1st grade. I can't believe she is 7. She is a beautiful girl. She is sweet. Yet she lets you know when she is mad. She loves her younger brother Joshua. She is so excited for this baby to be born in December I think she is more excited than I am.

I am so blessed to have her as my daughter. She has taught me patience, understanding, and much much more.

Happy Birthday Marysa. Have a wonderful day!

Happy 9th birthday Caleb

It is hard for me to imagine that I have a 9 year old. Yet today is Caleb's 9th Birthday. I think of the struggle it took to get him here. We got married when I was just 18 I really wanted a baby right away. It took us about 6 months before we got pregnant, but that pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. Oh how my heart was broken. I remember the day I miscarried I was sitting on the couch and this little voice said mommy I will come in May. We started trying again right way but it took us another 7 months of trying. We found out we were pregnant in September of 1999. Caleb was due May 26 2000.

Caleb was born on May 24 2000. He weighted a whopping 9lbs 6oz. He was 22 inches long. He was a great baby. He only cried when he was hungry. Caleb has always been above the 95% on height and weight on the growth charts.

Today Caleb is still big. He is almost as tall as me. By the way who says a boy can get taller than his mom or at least at such a young age. His feet are just as big as mine. He looks about 12. I wonder how old that makes me look. I was only 20 when he was born. Funny thing some guy at the post office thought he was 16. I wanted to say how old do I look. If he looked 16 He must of thought I was like 35. Which I am not.

Caleb is the most caring person I know. We were driving some where and he saw this moving van and people moving in and he said " oh man I wish I could help." That is how Caleb is he is always wanting to help. He loves helping people move in.

Caleb loves going to school. He loves playing soccer and riding his bike.

I always tell him how lucky I am to be is mom. I truly mean that. I feel so blessed that he is my son. He told me yesterday that he never wants to move out that he always wants to be with me. He wants to be able to kiss me everyday. Lets see if he stills feels the same way in 5 years.

Happy Birthday Caleb!

We love you.

Happy Birthday Joshua

They say time flies when you are having fun. The last 2 years have gone by in the blink of an eye.

Joshua is so much fun. I have loved every minute being is mom. He wakes up every morning with a big smile. First thing he does is give me a big hug.

He is always smiling. He smile at everything. He is calm. He is patient. He loves food. He loves milk. He loves his brother and sisters. Azalea is his playmate. Marysa his 2nd mom. Caleb is well his older brother. The kids still fight over him. He looooooves to suck on his finger and play with his hair. Unless I am holding him than he plays with my hair.

This little boy has brought so much joy to this family. I look at him today and am still wondering where he came from. I know where. I look back at how long it took to get Azalea here and then when she was only 18 months he was here. He is are surprise baby our blink of an eye baby. Oh how I love this boy.

Wow 2 years old. My time really does fly when you are having fun.

This is Andrew and I just thought I would followup on a couple of items. We finally got our pictures off our camera so here are some. The first is what the others looked like after the banana cream pie fight. it was really fun. I would recommend it for others.

This is us when we were able to go to the draper temple. We all really enjoyed it:

and lastly this shows the little bursts of weather that can occur in our house. In seconds a big mess can appear and if you aren't careful to catch the youngest two they can happen somewhere else while you clean up that mess. This has been multiple containers of spices dumped into a huge pile on the top of a bar stool, it has been wrecking the master bedroom. It has also been dumping 4 full containers of soap and shampoo out on the bathroom floor all at once.
