Hello Again

Hello again blogging world. It has been awhile... a long while, but I figure it is about time for an update since it has been 5 months, the children are soundly sleeping, and the laundry is done! Where do I even begin?!

I have an awesome chalkboard that my AwEsOmE sister Abby and brother-in-law Nate made for us. Currently it says, "The days are LONG but the years are short." Isn't it soooo true? I mean look how fast my boys are growing up! And, let's be honest, being a parent can be really crazy (understatement) but small moments like this make it all worth it.

Little Guy Tidbits:

Eli is 21 months now. He is quite a talker, but mostly in private. One of his favorite things to tell me is, "No way!" He likes to sing his own versions of "Jesus wants me for a Sunbeam" and "Old MacDonald". He loves his sheep stuffed animal and has to take it with him to nursery.

18 months
Liam is almost 9 months old. The poor boy is getting about 6 teeth right now! One of his favorite activities is rolling himself up in rugs or playing underneath them. He is working on his crawl. Right now it is a one legged army crawl type thing. He is getting a lot better at sitting up too.

6 months
So, what did we do this summer?

Played in the sandbox that daddy built.

Summer walks.

Visiting the zoo.
Playing with cousins.
Fourth of July Parade and fireworks.

Trips to Utah.
Tracey Aviary.
Water Parks.

Salt Lake City Pioneer Day parade.
Boating in Jordanelle Reservoir.

Playing in Grandma and Grandpa's yard while it was irrigated like mommy used to do when she was a little girl.

Eli took swimming lessons with daddy.

Gardening and canning.


Playing in tunnels (Eli thinks going under anything is playing in a tunnel.)

Climbing on the ladder that daddy built.

What will this fall bring?


  1. I love it! They are growing up so fast! I can't believe your little guys ended up so close together. I thought 19 months apart was super hard... I can't imagine what it's like for you! I'm so glad you guys had such an adventurous summer. Parenthood IS crazy... you guys are always in our thoughts and prayers. <3
