My baby girl, Chloie, is turning 7 in 2 weeks and she is amazing. I feel sometimes like I have yelled at her every day since she was 2 but that is not true. She is my biggest helper and she is such a good learner and lovely little girl. I miss her quite often when she is away all day at school and I love hugging her when she gets home from 1st grade and talking about her day. I actually love doing homework with her. She has friends here in the new neighborhood where we live in West Jordan and friends from our old neighborhood in Layton and Rock cousins and Malone cousins to love and play with. (This is Chloie and her friend dressed up to go to their first ballet)

Dillon, my little handsome man, is turning 5 in 2 weeks and I can't believe it. He is my cute little guy and until recently he always treated everyone kindly and always gave of himself. When he turned about 4 1/2 he started "fighting back" you could say. If his sister wanted to play outside Dillon would always be so happy just to do something with his sister or just do it to make her happy, but now there is a lot of spiteful rejection going on in this house. It is not very fun and I don't know how to deal with that kind of fighting. "Mom, Dillon doesn't want to play outside with me!" How do I handle that kind of argument? Recently I have become comfortable enough with Dillon crossing the street to play at his friends house and so I think they are both happier being able to play with other kids more often. Dillon really is my little sweety most of the time. I just love that boy like crazy.
My baby boy, Keenan, is 8 1/2 months and although he is screaming at me right now because he has climbed up to the couch to play with my computer and I will not let him, he is the most adorable baby ever. He has 2 bottom teeth, he is crawling (so cute) and eating lots of baby food. He is not a very good sleeping baby but there are good nights and ok nights so I can't complain that they are all horrible nights. Mostly he wakes up 2-3 times a night and I don't get a full night of uninterrupted sleep. He is so worth it though. He is the mostly smiley and happy baby ever.
Brandon is doing good. He has worked for this company in South Jordan for 3 years now and he has decided he finally likes this work better than the work he used to do. He has solved his digestive issues and now is able to sleep pretty well. He doesn't do much more than work but when we have a vacation we do get out and do fun things. He plays with baby Keenan and teases and jokes with Chloie and Dillon. We have fun playing electronic games (xbox, wii, pc, and apps) together and listening to the kids creative stories or games. I guess life couldn't really fit anymore amazing things in it at this time in our lives. We have amazement happening everyday.
