Skylar's 2yr well child check up

Skylar had a great check up, she is 26lbs. and 34 1/2 inches tall both of which put her in the 50% mark for her age! She is talking up a storm, cracking us up daily...she can count to ten, knows her colors, and can sing almost the whole alphabet! We really have to watch what we say around her as she has taken to repeating pretty much everything!
Her favorite phrases are:
"I'm not kidding me, I am serious!"
"Oh goodness"
"Do you hear me"
Needless to say she is always making us smile...We love her to pieces and are so blessed by such a great little girl!!


Ari is already 1 month old!!!The time is going so much faster it seems with 2!!! Ari is a great baby, she is pretty laid back but loves her cuddle time! She is a snuggler :) Last week at the doctor she weighed 7lbs. 3oz. and was 20 inches long. She is sleeping pretty good, usually going to bed between 9 & 10 then up at 3 and up again at I am getting a fair amount of sleep! She is trying to be awake more during the day which I am encouraging:) She is such a blessing, we love you Ari Grace!

what doesn't kill us only makes us stronger.. we made it through, I guess it didn't kill us to wear the maize and blue for a quick photo ;) This is for all those U of M fans in the family...just remember who won this year...
Go Green Go White!!!


Last week Chris had a dinner meeting so the girls and I headed down to my mom's for a great dinner! Thanks mom for letting us crash your place for a little while! W e had a great time hanging with Nana :)

Gracie came to play!

We got to spend some time with the Hosford girls last week and it was great fun! It was wonderful to 'catch up' with Trace, and it was so great to finally get the girls together, Gracie and Sky are just 3 weeks apart! They had a busy morning of playing dress-up, playing play doh and riding the 4-wheeler!

Weekends at the cabin!

Here are some random photos from our weekends North! We have spent every weekend up there since Ari arrived and it is great! It is nice to have the weekends up there to unwind and relax!! Skylar has been working on her skiing and we've been building a few snowmen! Ari is just enjoying all love she gets from the family :)

can we go skiing now?

Play Date with Livy

Two weeks ago we had a great play date with Jaren & Livy! It was so great to catch up with JAren and the girls had a riot together!!! THanks for coming to play!

Ari ~ 2 weeks old

I can't believe that Ari is already 2 weeks old...she is a sweet sweet baby, very laid back & mellow. Every day she is becoming more and more alert. She is still a tiny peanut, at the doctor last Thursday she was weighing in at 6 lbs. 7 oz. She sleeps great during the day...and at night pretty well...we are usually up at 2 am & 6 am. So for now that is pretty good.
Skylar is being a great big sister. She likes to gives kisses and gentle head rubs to her baby sister, well as long as it is her idea...I really wanted to be have a picture of the two of them together but that has not been on Skylar's agenda, so when it is you will get to see it :)
