Isn't it hilarious that kids have an obvious personality from birth? I love it...

Swim lessons

Maddux started swim lessons this week. We have done the mom n tot classes the past two years, but we are trying a new lady , Miss Pam and she is great! It amazes me what he can do after just a week! Today was the first day that he didn't get sad at all and he talked poor Miss Pam's ear off!

I will probably post more pics and videos after next week when he is even better at swimming to the ledge by himself. That's my favorite part!!

I love how on this first video, Maddux says "Thank you!!" right as she is pushing him down under the water the second time.

Maddux randomly started throwing up last night...a LOT. He had no fever, no other symptoms, just a LOT of throwing up. We decided to have a big sleepover in our room. We pulled his mattress off his bed and he got to sleep next to our bed. With a 5 week old on one side, and a sick 2 year old on the other, Mommy and Daddy didn't get much sleep. :)

He is feeling much better today! :)

Big Day

Sunday was a really big and busy day for our family. Bright and early we started off with Reese's baby blessing. Drew did a great job. I feel so blessed to have a worthy priesthood holder as my husband. I was a proud momma and wife! I am grateful for all the friends who came from near and far to be there with us! Thank you so much!

Then my dad got sustained and set apart as the 2nd counselor in the Elliot Groves Ward Bishopric. It was an awesome experience to see my dad up on the stand and to see him share his strong testimony with the congregation.

From there we went straight into my brother in law, Bo, being set apart as a full time Missionary. He is serving in the New York- Rochester Mission, Spanish Speaking. We each got to give him a piece of advice and he shared his testimony with us. Even with Maddux running circles around the room, it was a very spiritual experience and I know he is going to be a great missionary!

Reese at 1 Month

It's been a month! Time is already flying too fast!

*She is finally in 0-3 onesies and even in a couple of Newborn outfits
*Still in Newborn size diapers
*This past week has been rough on her baby acne. (Maddux heard me call myself "pizza face" and lovingly repeats it, telling me that "Reese is Pizza Face -Mommy is Pizza face". Nice.)
*She is the gassiest girl I know. Poor thing cries in pain! I have recently gone off dairy and it seems to be helping. Breaks my heart (for both of us ;) )
*She is a much better sleeper than Maddux was at 1 month.
*I can still count how many times she has spit up so far, which I am soooo grateful for!
*On the flip side, I have completely lost track of how many blow-outs we have had. Gross.
*She loves to stare at the blinds
*She loves her pacifier, but can't keep it in her mouth for long.
*Her eyes were obviously hazel when she was born and I was so disappointed. They have since changed to a dark blue. I couldn't be happier!
*Her favorite way to be held is the sitting-up-burping position.
*She melts my heart every day...Everyone was right...I DO love having a girl!
