Cousin Fun!

Two weekends ago my sister and her family were in town they live out of state so we don't get to see each other much. We thought it would be fun to get the whole family together to play and take pictures. We haven't had all of the cousins in the same place at the same time for almost 5 years so it was really fun for them. We all met up at Liberty Park and it was a mad house lol. Trying to get all the kids to smile all at the same time and look at the same time was hilarious! We got a few pretty good pictures and had lots of fun. The last one is my parents and all my siblings minus my youngest brother who wasn't there. It was great to see everyone and catch up.

July 24th....

Im pretty sure I may have blogged about this before but its so present in my mind right now I have to write. In Utah July 24th its a state holiday. We celebrate the pioneers, we celebrate Utah. There are lots of parades, fireworks events. For me though this date is something so much different now. Its the first day that 5 years ago we got to bring Kael home. I never thought the day would come... We brought him home with lots of things like monitors, oxygen, suctions, medications and a g tube but we were so excited we didn't care. We were bringing our sweet baby home. We would all be together under one roof. The boys were so excited, we were so excited it was such an amazing feeling. Everyone would ask us if we were nervous to bring Kael home but we weren't. We had learned so much, knew what to pretty much expect and we knew how to run his machines. We were prepared to do anything and everything for him that we could. We never could expect that his home time with us would be so short. We had big plans and we were going to do anything to give this little guy the world. Sitting here today I still cant believe that its been 5..... yes I said 5 years. This 5 year milestone thing is  really sending me for a trip. It just seems so significant in my book. Ill always cherish that time we had at home with our sweet little angel. Ill never forget that feeling walking outside of those doors to take him home. I keep trying to live in a way that one day we will make it back to our sweet guy. We took a picnic lunch to the cemetery today and ate with Kael. It was a nice way to spend some time remembering and talking to him. I sure hope he feels all the love that we have for him. His example and love to us is surely a amazing thing!! I love you to the moon and back sweet boy!! Catch our hugs and kisses. Love always mommy!

3 Month Pics.

I am so in love with these pictures my friend did for Tiaras 3 month pictures. My friend owns a photography business and her sister is just starting up a prop/crafty kind of business so Tiara got to model quite a few fun things. These are so precious and just like her personality! I cant believe how fast my little girl is growing up!! I'm so thankful to be able to have all of these moments with her!!

Seven Peaks Family Fun!!

For Easter we all got the pass of all passes. Its a fun pass that we can use at several places in the valley. We've been to a few places so far and it is so much fun. I love spending quality time together and building memories for a lifetime. Last weekend we took the kids to Seven Peaks. Its a water park. They loved all of the slides, the wave pool and the kiddie land. We spent a few hours there and then took the kids to lunch. We had such a great afternoon.

4th of July Fun!!

This fourth we had lots of fun! We went over to Laynes moms house in the morning and let the kids visit with Grandma for a while why Layne helped put up a grab bar for her. Afterwards we went out to Herriman to buy fireworks from a friend of ours who owns his own stand. We headed over to my friends house to let the kids run through the sprinklers and play in the pool. We had a yummy BBQ for dinner and then let the kids do their poppers, sparklers and these awesome firework swords we bought them. When it got dark enough Layne let off the rest of the fireworks we had quite the show. We got some big ones that shot up in the air and then some of the ground ones. It was such a fun day spent with family and friends.

3 months old.

On the second Tiara turned 3 months old. She is so much fun and getting quite the personality!! She smiles so big and giggles. She loves to talk to us and tell big stories. she has an obsession with trying to suck on her hands as hard as I try to keep them out she always manages a way to sneak them in. She rolled over for the fist time tummy to back and can get half way rolled over from back to her tummy. She loves her baths, being rubbed down with lotion, reading books,  going for walks, dancing to music, playing with her brothers (rather watching them be crazy to make her laugh), her mommy and daddy and her brothers so much, she also loves her bottle and binky she still loves to be wrapped up tight to sleep! She doesn't like when we leave her in a room alone, when I take her out of the bath or loud noises she is also not fond of tummy time. She had some firsts this month, we painted her toes, rolling, going for a walk, riding in the stroller with out her car seat, putting her arms out to reach for me, homemade applesauce (I've decided to make all of her baby food), and holding her blankie or toys in her hand. She is growing like a weed and getting so much more alert. Her naps are father apart now because she is staying up longer periods of time. I took her to the Cystic Fibrosis clinic on Monday for her check up. Her lungs are still clear and she is growing. Thank goodness for that. I am certainly counting our blessings! She is now 23.5 inches which is 65% and 11 lbs 1 oz. which is 23%. She is still wearing size 1 diapers and 0-3 month clothes before to long I am going to have to switch out her jammies because she is getting so darn long. She is eating 5 oz about every 3 hours during the day sometimes she goes longer depending on her naps and then at night she takes 5 ounces and sleeps from about 10pm-5 or 6 am. She is going 7-8  hours at night which has been great. I cant believe it has already been 3 months. Time is flying by and we are loving every minute. I cant explain how thankful I am to have this happy, beautiful little girl in our family!! The boys love to play with her and dance for her. She loves them so much and laughs out loud at them it is the sweetest. She is the best snuggler and loves to be wrapped up still. We sure are lucky to have her in our family!!
