Thankful Day 1

Today I am grateful that I got to wake up to this face.
This is the first thing I saw this morning. She said "Dad let me borrow it." I knew it was the one he left up high for himself for later.  Peyton is extremely independent she likes things done her way. I wonder who she gets it from :)  She is so energetic the only time she holds still is to sleep.

I'm lucky to call her mine and so thankful I can.

Houston is ONE!

At Houston's one year check up he was in the 100th percentile for height and 50th for weight which is almost exactly like Peyton  It is fun to compare these two and see how different they are.

* He says Hi to everyone whether they notice it or not. Every morning when I go to get him out of his crib. I open the door and he is standing there and says "HI". He also says Thank You, Mama, Dada, Uh Oh, No, Ball, Balloon. We are working on Kilo, it sounds like KKKKK. I'm trying to teach him Peyton, but he just laughs every time I point to her and say her name. He mimics a lot of her sounds. If Peyton screams Houston screams. If Peyton sings Houston attempts. If Peyton growls Houston growls.

* He is walking all over the place! He actually started walking a few weeks before his birthday. I was hoping he would be a late walker, I guess if you compare him to Peyton he was ;)

* He has 8 teeth, four on the top and four on the bottom. I really don't like teething.

* H has to …

Tender Mercies

This story begins a week ago on Wednesday July 19th 2013.
I woke up and got out of bed I saw to my suprise one of two bands I had just gotten from Mike the previous month. I realized I slept in my ring and sometimes in the summer my fingers swell I must have taken off in the middle of the night. I immediately asked my two year old, Peyton where are my wedding rings? She said In the toilet and ran to her bathroom. She looked in her toilet then looked at me and said Oh NO! I asked her again Peyton where is my wedding rings? She look at me and said "In the drawer?" Then proceeded to say in her bed. At this point I figured she had taken them to her room. I deep cleaned her room for the next two days.
Friday morning I had my husband call Lehi City because I was too emotional to even talk about it. They were closed! I cleaned and cleaned some more searching my room her bathroom etc. My husband took of the toilet to see if they were in the trap. No Luck. I was giving up. He called…

Coast to Coast

It started about 8 months ago when I got this crazy idea to train and run a half marathon. I booked the Tinkerbell half at Disneyland. I had Houston and the training process began 6 weeks later. I started by walking and walking and walking. It was so hard to just walk a mile. I remember how hard the first 2 weeks were, I wanted to give up. I continued on and walked a lap then jogged a lap. Eventually I was only walking every now and then. Having a newborn and a 2 year old is not easy to train with. I would put one of them in the gym day care and push the other in the stroller. Depending on who I need a little break from. :) I trained using Hal Higgons training as much as I could. I got up to 9 miles and was suppose to run 11, but when it came time I just didn't want to run that in Florida. Oh ya you don't know why I was in Florida. Let me explain!

I joined ItWorks a month or two after I booked my run. I later found out as I trained that ItWorks was having a conference the sam…

M,N,P,H and K

Time sure is just flying right by I wish Pey would get just a little bit older and I wish Houston would stay a baby for ever. I can't believe he's 8 mo old!

I have the perfect baby. It's true, I love him so very much. He just cuddles me all day long. I want to hold him for ever!
He is quite the tank, he absolutely loves food. If I make him a bottle and I am eating regular food he won't take his bottle. I have to feed him then eat if its something he can't have yet. He loves crackers especially Chicken in a biscuit  He also loves bannans... I despise this food, but because I love that little guy I buy fresh bannas and pure them for him. He goes crazy for this. He grunts and snorts when he eats them because he loves them so much. He is super lazy, he doesn't like holding his bottle. I have to tease him for a second to get him to hold it. If not I end up holding it. He does a army worm crawl thing everywhere though. I guess lazy isn't the right word because he…

Houston's 6 Months

Houston is now 6 months old can you believe it? I sure can't. He is a chunky monkey! At this 6 month appointment he was in the 90th for length and 85 for weight.

* Rolls over and over and over
* Up on all fours rockin away and trying to crawl
* Almost holding his bottle, but spoon feeding is a breeze. Opens his mouth and swallows great. (opposite of Pey she held her bottle early, but couldn't quite get the spoon)
* Has TWO teeth already!
* He was sleeping though the night until last week when he started teething and now i'm trying to get him back on track.
* Falls asleep on my shoulder and loves to cuddle. Peyton would arch her back when I'd try to hold her like that.

This little man is such a blessing in our life, he's everything I prayed for and so much more. He is calm, happy and healthy. He is a my boy, a mommas boy through and through. He snuggles and cuddles and giggles all day long. I can't get enough of his laugh.
He eats a ton! He absolutely loves bab…

Fall and Winter 2012

I have not updated in a really long time and what is going on in our home! Just goes to show you how busy I am with two!

We had a few friends over that night, but I took Peyton around the neighborhood with one of her ward friends Hayden.
She was a pony and the cutest pony i've ever seen. I loved the way her tail moved when she walked. All she wanted was suckers and you bet she sure got them!

25th Birthday
A quarter century wow i'm old! ;) Mike surprised me with a trip to Disneyland and if you know me that is a the best present this girl could ask for! Spoiled.... I know.

We went to Laughlin with Mikes parents to see where Nanny lives! We met up with some cousins and our Aunt and Uncle McMilian. We had a blast! We ventured out to route 66 and they had a lot of CARS souvenirs  It was like cars land, but in real life. There wer're also a ton of burrors that we're just roamin' the streets. Peyton did amazingly well on the car ride. She especiall…
