Mila Preschool Graduation!

I am so proud of our little MILA, she has done great this year!  She has learned a lot about the alphabet, numbers, colors and animals.  But more importantly she has learned how to make friends and play well with others.  I have loved watching her grow this year.  She is such a sweetheart!

Mila is sure going to miss going to school with her "bestie" addy! They play so well together (their personalities are very similar and mesh so well)

Eliza loved watching the program and is very excited to get to go to preschool next year too!

Please meet the busiest 7 month old I know! haha, seriously though I can't turn my back on this kid for even a second! He is so crazy, I swear he is almost ready to just get up and run out the door!

I love watching the girls play with him (I feel a little bit more relaxed now that he is getting a little more stable and a little bit less "fragile-newborn-ish" which is nice.  But like I said he is also getting to be alot more mobile.  I turn my back for 1 second and then it's like oh no where did that kid go? usually I find him splashing in the dog's water or trying to snack on dog food! (yuck)

That smile is just contagious!

Don't let this picture of him in his crib fool you.  He is not the best sleeper! He really likes for his mommy to sit and hold him and nurse him so that he can sleep comfortably.  I love the cuddles but I also love my sleep!

We took another trip to St. George this month and played with Grandma and Grandpa! Spencer loved riding the carousel.  He really likes doing anything with his big sisters.  He is very attached to his mom, when people say hi, he smiles and then buries his head into my shoulder, it is so cute!

WATER BABY! He loves anything that has to do with water! (clean or dirty) but seriously can it get any cuter than this? Such a fun stage despite the physical exhaustion from trying to "keep up"!

 The girls had their spring dance recital this month (this picture is of the girls before we even got to the recital) haha.. its hard to be little sometimes! (but man I wish I could still nap like this sometimes)

 Me and Spencer staying busy out in the hallway while waiting for the girls' turn to take the stage

They were adorable, they tap danced to the song "seventy-six trombones" from the movie, "The Music Man" I felt very patriotic!

 Zeke took a turn for the worst this month his big cancerous tumors were spreading and getting bigger.  He was in a lot of pain, so we had to have him put down.  Super sad, we are really going to miss having him around.  I am so glad to know that he isn't suffering anymore though.  Love my little "zeekie bear"

Mila and Eliza have sure been busy growing up!  Mila has made some cute little friends at preschool.  Both of the girls love to play on their ipads, they love to spend time with their friends, especially Addy.  They still enjoy playing dress up but now they also like to wear make-up and jewelry.  Eliza is super sweet and still likes to do everything just like her big sister.  They are the best of friends (most of the time) I am so proud of them both! I can't wait to see how Eliza does with preschool next year.  She is so ready!


Me and Jeff and Spencer took a quick little trip to St. George for the weekend.  We have fallen in love with St. George!  We spent the weekend looking at houses down there and decided it's where we need to be!  Let the house hunting begin!  It really is so beautiful!

I am looking forward to this next chapter of our life!

    Weight: 15lbs 14 oz (20th percentile) 
      Height: 25 in (8th percentile)
    Head circ: 43 cm (50th percentile)

Half a year! Spencer is a happy/busy boy.  He is sitting up like a champ and is getting into full crawl position! He is starting to scootch himself around! He is getting more curious about the world around him.  He loves Nixon and "keets" 

He loves to eat (anything and everything.. Like his dad!) especially likes to do it himself with finger foods and is starting to figure out how to work a spoon!

he got his first tooth and his second a couple days later! He is fun to play with, and it is easy to get him to giggle.  The girls love to make him laugh!

This month Grandma Tami took us to dizney on ice "Frozen" it was awesome! The girls had so much fun, they got all dressed up and even asked me to paint their faces! We loved it! Spencer really liked watching all the lights and music too! He loves to be a part of anything that's going on! He never wants to miss out on the fun! 

We got to watch our niece Jordyn a few times this month! The girls love getting to play with her!  She is such a cutie pie! Spencer is starting to recognize her and smiles when he see's her! It is so fun to watch them play together! 

I was brave one day and took all 4 kids to the zoo! They did great and we all had a good time! (I may have looked a little bit like a crazy person at times with all of those little people)!

It has been a fun month full of growth for all of us! Having 3 kids is overwhelming at times.  I do my best to balance it all, and am constantly reminding myself to "slow down" and try to see things through their eyes.  After all kids' main goal in life is to have fun! Who couldn't use more fun in their life?  Love all 3 of my littles!
