Forde turns 1!



  Ok so I am a little behind on the blogging but I have been super busy or so it seems... Well my baby turned 1 year old on the 25th... it was bittersweet I was sad because he is my last baby (well according to me, Nate still has hope that I will change my mind and have 1 more) But so excited because he is getting to be so much more fun and active and I just love this age when they are discovering new things.  He has been such a joy in our family Ky and Lundyn just love him so much and they really help out alot to Lundyn loves to sit and play with him and give him kisses and hugs and Ky loves to help me feed him and change him, I am not sure how long that will continue but its nice for now. 
  He sleeps about 12 hours a night with 2 naps still unless he is teething then its not so much.  He looks exactly like Nate and he is such a Momma's boy, I really enjoy it most of the time until he wont let me get anything else done.  Here are pic's from the party!


                                                      Papa and Forde!

               He didnt know what to think of his cake at first.. But he definitely figured it out.

                                His favorite toy! He has played with that everyday since his Birthday.

                            His dinosaur cake..... Now I usually make the kids Bday cake but I was way to busy this time to make it so I bought one from Target and it turned out cute. 

                     Forde's 1 year stat's
          Weight 28.5 pounds ( Still off the charts)
           Height 32.5 inch in the 85 th %
          Cant remember head but it is in the 80th % Huge...
He has 12 teeth Yes you read right 12 and 2 molars coming in right now.... Crazy huh! He can take a few steps but he prefers to crawl and he likes to walk around all the furniture in the house... I think he will start walking any time now. He is such a good baby and is almost always happy... We just love our little Forde... 


     M.S. Walk... we also the morning of his Birthday went and did the M.S walk it was so awesome to go with my whole family... It was pouring rain and freezing but it was good to know that all those people are trying to make a difference and find a cure.... My Mom has M.S and so did my Grandma, and it was a great opportunity to try and do something good for this cause I can only hope they will find a cure for all those people who are suffering from this. And to my wonderful Mom who has always been there for me and who I get to spend so much time with each week you are the best and I will miss you so much when we move and miss all of lunches and shopping.....  here is a picture from that morning.... 

        We also had shirts made for all the kids that said We walk for our Grandma... They were cute but it was so cold that they had sweatshirts over them..... 
    Ok now I am making the blog private on Saturday so if you havnt left me a comment yet with your email address go ahead and let me know if you would like an invite...

Easter weekend...



  This year we had a wonderful Easter..... The whole Fam was together (bruce's) The last couple of years Haley and Steph were not with us so it was really fun with every one. The kids had an easter egg hunt on Saturday and had a blast then we hung out with every one that day and Sunday... We also managed to squeeze in family pic's which I will post later this week.... ( Thanks to Steph of course) Then we also had some family fun with my parents and sister and there fam.... We have been so lucky to live so close to our families for so long... I know there may be changes in the very near future but I feel very lucky that our kids always so far have gotten to be around grandparents and family......  So here are a few photo's from the weekend and I will try to post our family pic's as soon as I can...


Here is part of the fam and Forde is on Papa's lap which is the only picture I got of him this whole weekend... I am a bad Mom... ;)

Lundyn's School Program!



  This last week we went to Lundyn's School program.... She is in a class with only 5 kids but once everyday she gets to go into the regular kindergarten class for about 30 min or so and they wanted her to preform with them,  It was so cute they sang 2 songs and even though she cant sing she knew all the actions and did them so well and all the other kids just love her so much... I am so proud to her momma... She makes everyday exciting :)


 As you can see she is in the front row in a rainbow shirt... Her teacher sent me a note home that said all the kids needed to wear a color of the rainbow shirt... Me being kinda slow to pick up on things sometimes thought that meant a rainbow colored shirt... So yes everyone else had a solid color on and she had all the colors which really made her stand out good.. I couldn't stop laughing.....

"8 Years"




Well 8 years ago today I was married to the most amazing man ever... I can not even tell you how grateful I am to have Nate as a husband and how lucky our kid's are to have him for a Dad... He has been so wonderful and has always taken great care of us.... I know I will never go a day without laughing at something he has said or done.. He is the funniest person I know. I actually met Nate 13 years ago I was a sophomore and he was a senior and we dated for a bit in high school of course he was head over heels in love with me but he wont admit to that... LOL And I always knew I wanted to marry this man I always thought about him when he was on his mission and when he got home... I am so grateful for everything again that he does. Babe I love you so much.
