8 Months Old

This adorable little thing is now 8 months old!  Where does the time go?  She is getting so big so fast!

Brynn is so much fun and we all love her so much!  I think she probably gets smothered by all of us but she puts up with it and is so happy.  She is always smiling and she loves to growl.  She is so loud too when she does it!  And she has realized that when she does things she will get reactions out of us.  So it's fun to see her react and interact with me and the kids.  Her favorite place to be is in the toy room watching Makenna and Kason play.  She doesn't really play, she just likes to watch her big sister and brother. 

She now weighs 16 lbs 6 oz and I think she was 26 inches long.  I wasn't paying much attention when they told me that part!  And she is now in the 28th percentile which is the highest she's ever been so that's good.  She has 2 bottom teeth and she is drooling like crazy so I'm sure there might be more coming. 

She loves to sit.  She will just sit and play so good.  And she can reach so far for a toy that I think she is going to tip over but she doesn't.  If she does ever end up on her tummy (which she doesn't like) she will scoot and push herself backwards.  I don't think we'll have a crawler anytime soon and that is just fine by me.  I just love watching her sit and play.  She also does this thing with her hands and fingers where she wiggles them back and forth and up and down and all around when she gets excited.  It's really funny to watch her do it.  I think of it as her nervous twitch but its pretty cute.  I really need to get the video camera out soon so I can get videos of her growling and her hands.  Poor third child just doesn't get the camera time that the others did.  I really need to better at that,  but we sure do love her to pieces!  We really couldn't ask for a better baby.  She is simply perfect.

Mascot Bowl

Makenna loves Cosmo so I wanted to take the kids to see the Mascot Bowl that went on at the High School last month.  And I am sure glad we did!  The kids had so much fun and it was all they could talk about for the next week!  They loved watching Cosmo and the Jazz Bear and the cheerleaders.  They didn't watch much of the football game but it sure was a fun night for everybody.  It was a little chilly but I'm so glad we went this year.  Now the kids can't wait to go again next year!

Fall Cabin Trip

So the last week of September we went up to the Peel family cabin for the weekend.  This was Brynn's first time so that was fun and the leaves were amazing!  We also saw lots of animals so that was fun for the kids.  And of course we came home and got sick the next week.  Lots of fun!  Any ways here are some pics of everyone having fun!

Happy Birthday! 29 (again!)

I refuse to get older so therefore I turned 29 again this year! This year was a little better than last year. Last year I didn't even have a birthday. I told everyone I wasn't having a birthday so I didn't want cake or presents or anything. And it happened but this year I decided it was okay to have a birthday. I really missed that cake! But unfortunately Weston had to work all day and then he had a review class in Salt Lake so I pretty much had an awful birthday. But my little sister is amazing and took me and the kids to dinner and then she made the most amazing cake ever! It was a homemade chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and then it was covered in chocolate candy bars. It was to die for!
So yummy! Just look!
 Blowing out the candles!

Cutest kids ever!

The kids got me all of my favorite things.  Makenna picked me out a necklace with a heart on it, Kason got me a Linkin Park cd and Brynn got me her charm so I could add it to my kids necklace. They sure know what I like!

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes and helping make my day better than last years.

The Forgotten Blog

Wow! It's been awhile since I've posted anything. I think the last 5-6 weeks have been too crazy for me to handle. But I was thinking today of somethings that I wanted to right down before I forget them.

First, Brynn got her first tooth this last weekend being 7 1/2 months old. It was just one of the bottom front ones. We were spending the weekend in Park City for my dads 60 birthday. Brynn has been such a great sleeper since she was 2 months old and the first night we were there she kept waking up crying which is so unlike her. And the next morning I realized that she had gotten her first tooth! Poor girl just didn't feel good. Then today (4 days later) she got her second tooth on the bottom. I got smart with this one and gave her some Tylenol. It's been a rough few days around her with lack of sleep between Brynn, Wes and I but hopefully she gets feeling better soon.

Now today Makenna had her first field trip at kindergarten! They went to Cornbelly's up at Thanksgiving Point and what do you think was her favorite part? Riding the bus! She has been wanting to ride a big yellow bus for as long as I can remember and the poor little girl has to walk or get a ride to and from school each day. But today she was able to go on her very first bus ride and she was ecstatic! I don't think she even slept last night because she was so excited! And apparently the ride lived up to her expectations because she said it was the best part of her field trip. I'm glad she could go and have so much fun.

And Kason. Not much is going on with him right now. He misses Makenna when she is gone to dance and school so I want to get him started in something at the Legacy Center in January. But he is just my favorite little guy in the whole wide world. He is so much fun right now even though he asks millions of questions, repeats everything Makenna says, never stops talking, and has even started throwing 2 year old tantrums. He is just so adorable and I just can't stand it! He totally makes me smile every day and I just love his big hugs.

Wow, they just grow up way to fast! I think if I could I would freeze time right now. All three kids are at such fun ages and I love it so much. I want them to stay little forever.
