We went up to the coast this New Years and stayed at a little cabin for the night. We went sledding, hiked up a sand dune, and went swimming in their heated pool. It was fun and I'm glad we did it even though I was feeling very nauseous!! I'm glad Steve pushes us to get out and have fun together!! One of the many reasons I appreciate him so much in my life! … [Read more...]
New Years Trip!
My 18 Month Old!!
HOW THEY GROW UP SO FAST!! Taken her first week. Recent photos, almost 18 months. I can't believe my baby girl is 18 months!!! I was so sad yesterday realizing that my baby is growing up!! At 18 months is when we stop giving bottles. We are pretty good from a year on with not giving too many bottles and using the sippy cup a lot, but we still will ocassionally give a bottle. I love how much comfort my babies have received from bottles. It seems to relax them and it is such a "baby" thing to do to drink from a bottle.

We started this first Sunday of the new year with church at 9am. I LOVE IT!! Even though I had a lesson to teach, even though my morning sickness actually is worse in the morning, and even though we had to get ourselves and two kids out the door before 9am I still really enjoyed meeting early. Isabelle was heaven compared to this last year and trying to keep her awake and happy during her naptime. She also starts nursery this next week so we will actually be able to listen in class. It was so nice to wake up, get ready, and go. I never knew what to dress the kids in when we had 12:30pm church, they either had to wear their jammies all morning or I had to dress them twice. We also were able to eat breakfast before we left and lunch when we got home. Doesn't sound like a big deal, but it was so hard to feed the kids lunch right before church as we were trying to scramble and get out the door. And, of course, I love coming home just after 12:00, knowing we have the rest of the day to … [Read more...]
