I think I am in LOVE

The girls playing with Daddy, Morgan was loving it...Whitney, well she wasn't sure.

Morgan is still trying to decide if she needs a nap during the day. Of course if it were up to me she definitely would! About three days a week she will take one. This is a day she didn't take one. :)

Do you think that flower is big enough?

(WARNING: Picture overload and lots of random information for my sake!)

Life with two kids has been great. There are rough days, but really the whole adjustment to two kids has been MUCH better than I anticipated. I feel like I am able to enjoy Morgan more and the small things don't bother me as much. When I had Morgan it was just SUCH an adjustment from working full time, school part time, and lots of Jeff and Kim time to all of the sudden a new baby, no work, finishing school, and not as much Jeff time. :) Poor Morgan, I definitely didn't enjoy her as a baby as much as I could have. Good thing she had two years by herself for me to enjoy her!

Whitney is so sweet and such a patient little girl! We are loving having her. Honestly it has made me want to have a LOT more! haha we will see in a few months if lots is the right word or not! She is already two months old and getting so big! Her two month stats are:

Weight: 8 Ilbs 5 Ozs. or 11%
Height: 21 1/4 in. or 15%
Head: 14 3/4 in. or 22%

(p.s. I found this web-site called that helped me edit this shot. It is a fun web-site, not photoshop by any means but it works well enough for me!)

She has been so fun, when she was six weeks she started smiling but this week (week 9) she has been ALL smiles. Last night Jeff really got her excited almost like she was laughing! SO CUTE! So fun!

I think that Whitney is going to have curly hair, just look at these pictures of her right out of her bath:

Morgan has been great with her still. She always tries to hug her and still speaks to her in her high little voice, "she is SO cute!", "she's smiling at me mommy", "I love you baby sister."

Morgan has been so funny. Lately when I change Whit's diapers she comes over to see what I am doing and she just says, "OHHHH disGUSTING!!!" haha with a scrunched nose and runs off. We have been potty training Morgan about the last three weeks. She has done great. I put a diaper on her for naps and for bedtime. I am the one who still has to take her to the bathroom, she won't tell me she needs to go. SO today I thought I would just see if she would tell me...the answer was no. By noon today she had two accidents. Oh well. She will get it. For now if I just have to use a diaper a day that is fine.

Morgan has been obsessed with wearing dresses for a long time now, but the last two weeks she is ADAMANT that she needs to wear a dress or a skirt. Anyway, the other day it was pretty chilly outside so I decided to make her some little leggings to go with her skirt. I thought that they turned out pretty cute. It only took me about twenty minutes to make them. Just don't look to close! (this was edited on picnik too! I think I am going to have some fun with this site!)

Morgan's friend Malorie spent the day with us and they had a princess tea party, now Morgan thinks it should be an every day occurrence!

Morgan LOVES to sing. It is crazy how fast she will pick up a song too! That comes from her Daddy! Anyway, I was watching American Idol (this season has been AMAZING! I think it has been the best by far, there are at least 4 contestants that I think will go on and be big, just my opinion, any one else think so?) and she was singing the whole time, silly girl.

Having Whitney and seeing how Morgan reacts to her has really made me really LOVE being a Mom..most days. :) Not that I didn't love it before, but it just feels so much more real. I am so grateful we get to have the opportunity to be parents and that I get to be at home with my girls!

I have been trying to 'spring clean' the last few weeks or so. Just going through closets and clothes. Trying to get things better organized and the junk out. So Wednesday I put all my winter clothes away and wouldn't you know it we had a blizzard the next day! :) Serves me right. I was so excited to move to Colorado and get lots of snow and since we have been here there really hasn't been much. SO, it was a bittersweet day yesterday. I was excited for all the snow but at the same time I was finally getting used to the idea that Spring was here. Thats ok, I am sure it will be gone by Monday. That is a benefit of living here in Denver, when it does snow it melts really fast.

Look at all that snow! In the background if you look closely at the tree you can see it's leafs are coming out!

Anyway, sorry for the long random post. It has just been a while and I wanted to catch up! I don't know how all you other moms out there keep it up! I will try and do better!

What Were You Doing?

What were all of you doing five years ago today? I will tell you what I was was my last day as a single woman! WAHOO!!! I can barely believe that we will be married for five years tomorrow! It is insane! How come when you were little five years seemed like an eternity and today it just feels like yesterday? Here are some things that have happened to us in the last five years (in no particular order):

- Two cruises...same cruise

- Numerous trips to Vegas and San Diego

- One trip to Phoenix

- One trip to NYC

- One trip to Florida

- Two trips to Alaska

- Salmon and Halibut fishing in Alaska (something I have ALWAYS wanted to do...AMAZING)

p.s. The biggest one is mine! :) At least that is what I claim!!!

- A few trips to St. Louis

- Lots of trips back to Idaho

- A fun trip to Yellowstone with friends who hadn't ever been

- A botched trip to The Price is Right

- Lots and lots of sporting events

- Moved 8 times

- One apartment fire :) (Not my fault! haha that is a whole different post!)

- Five different jobs between the two of us

- Four cars

- I finished my B.S.

- Jeff started (and is still working on) his MBA

- Bought one business

- Two beautiful kids

- 1 House (by the way, if anyone needs a place to rent or is looking to buy we just found out this week our renters are leaving their contract so it is up for grabs: 4 Bed, 3.5 Baths, living room, family room, laundry, and office)

- I think 9 softball teams, two we played on together

- Disneyland, Disneyworld, Sea World, Universal Studios, Knotts Berry Farms and MGM Grand

I think this was at Universal

- Many packages of mint Oreos

- One happy wife :)

Sheesh, after looking at this list it looks like all we have done is played! We have been very lucky and maybe when all the kids are out of the house we will be able to go on a vacation again! :) haha!!! I am sure there are many other things that have happened! :) All in all I am one happy camper!!! Jeff and the girls are the best things that have ever happened to me. I couldn't have a more perfect match for a spouse. I feel like we equal each other out so well. We both 'share a leg of the pants'. :) I LOVE him so much and am grateful for all the hard work he does for our family!

I was looking for the CD of my engagement photos so I could post a few but I have no idea where it went! (Noelle if you still have them can I get another copy?) Anyway so I thought I would post our invitation
(yes, I know the bottom is cut off. I don't know why I scanned if 5 time and all different ways but at least you get the idea) :)
