Preschool and Other Random Things

Here's the cute quilt my mom made for Jack.  We wanted a puppy themed room and I found this darling material and my mom made it!
 I don't think I ever posted this cute picture of Skye.  My cousin got this shirt for her when she was in Canada serving a mission.
 I also forgot to post this.  Only about a week or two into the preschool year, Skye got hurt on the swingset. She got hit by the glider and was injured pretty bad.  I had to go over there and comfort her for awhile.  Once I saw how bad it was, I could understand why.  I wouldn't be surprised if she keeps a scar on her side the rest of her life from it.  I was afraid it might make her scared of preschool, but she still loves it!
 A pretty rainbow looking west from our front porch.
 Skye learned about elephants one day at preschool and made this!  Being the animal lover that she is, she's had a lot of fun wearing it!
 Here are some deer in the field behind our house.

 And here's the edible Christmas tree made at preschool!
 And then there's Jack!  He fell asleep in this cute bunting my mom got for him.
 Sleeping babies are the most angelic things in the world!

Two Months

I can't believe my baby boy is already two months old today! It has gone by WAY too fast. He's already changed so much. Our little chubbers is just that--so chubby! And cute! He weighs 13 pounds, 4 ounces, in the 84th percentile and is 23 1/2 inches long in the 72nd percentile. So he's a lot bigger than Skye who wasn't  even quite 13 pounds at 3 months (see why I call him chubbers?!), but then he was also a lot bigger than her when he was born.
 Jack is a pretty good baby, though he does love to be held, demands to be held. That's okay because I love holding him! He's started smiling and he even laughed yesterday. He has started "talking" a little more, but still prefers to grunt most of the time--such a boy already! One of his favorite places is his diaper changing table. He can be crying like mad and as soon as he's put down on the changing table, his face lights up and he smiles away--just staring at the white wall next to him! He's sleeping better at night, still wakes up twice usually, but is quite unpredictable during the day. Most of the time he takes short 20-30 minute naps, but every once in awhile, he surprises me by taking 1-2 hour naps. Silly boy. And we love him!
 Isn't he the cutest?! I love this cute dress shirt onesie. And I love my baby boy so much! Oh, I already mentioned that, huh!

Christmas 2011...Nearly a Month Later!!!

As mentioned in my last post, it sure is a lot harder to blog now. So I'm finally getting Christmas pictures on here! Skye really got spoiled this Christmas, first at my parent's house.
 Here's their cute, little Christmas tree--a lot easier to set up and decorate!
 And here's our Christmas tree! After having a bad experience with a live tree last year, we decided to just spend the money and get a fake one. I think it's very nice and really like it.
 Skye also got spoiled by Santa--here are the presents he left for her!
 Skye got a reindeer toy (name Rani) as a white elephant gift at a Christmas party a few years ago. This year on her Christmas list to Santa, she wanted a reindeer friend for Rani. And he delivered!
 She then got spoiled by my sister and brother-in-law with this HUGE present.
 This is what was inside. Of course, Skye was quite excited since she loves horses so much. She named her Ginger and I'll get video of her riding it soon.
 Finally, she got a little spoiled by us, too!
 Skye with all of her presents.
 This is how Jack spent his first Christmas--just hanging out, sleeping, and...
 eating! He did not get spoiled. But what do you expect as a one-month-old?! He was spoiled when he was born!
 Here's Skye in her Christmas dress by the Christmas tree just before going to church.
 Oh, and did I mention that I got spoiled, too? I know the picture ended up blurry, but I had to put it on anyway. Lance got me this wonderful, new laptap for Christmas and I LOVE it!!!! Thanks, Bandit! It was a really great Christmas!

Trans-Siberian Orchestra

I've discovered blogging is a lot harder when you have two kids, one of which doesn't nap anymore and the other of which only naps if he's being held. I swear I will get Christmas pictures on here soon, but I just wanted to say that my Christmas present to Lance was tickets to see Trans-Siberian Orchestra. We went Wednesday night. Are they everything they're hyped up to be? Yes, and even more! It was amazing! One of the best shows/concerts I have ever seen! The music was amazing, the effects were absolutely spectacular! I love being a part of things like that!
This is not a picture we took--it's one I found on the internet. There's my disclaimer!
