Ride a bike? No biggie!

Auntie Julie was helping me out with the kids one day and decided to get Cayden out on his bike. He got this bike last Christmas from Grandma and Grandpa and had a really hard time riding it. We would take him out but every time his poor little legs just couldn't seem to get the pedals going. We hadn't tried since we moved and I was shocked to see my little guy riding it like he had been for months! It was soo cute to see, I was so proud and excited for him. Yes there are training wheels but he just looked like such a big boy riding around.

7 Eleven 2013

On 7/11 Julie, the kids and I were out doing some errands when we realized it was free Slurpee day! We decided to try it out since we never had. We got inside and the line was going through the entire store! It was hot and the floor was a nasty sticky mess. On top of that the Slurpees were soo liquidy, the only one that wasn't was sugar free which I tried and was gross and Auntie Julie's tasted like cough syrup. The only one who enjoyed theirs was Cayden. We realized if we were ever going to attempt that again we would go first thing in the morning =) At lease they were free!

3 weeks

Our little Ellie went in to the docs the day before she turned 3 weeks for a belly button check up and she weighed 9.1lbs! Some things about her, she loves her baths, never cries which gives me hope she will love the water. She is starting to stay awake more which I love, even though sometime its all night long.

Having some fro yo with Auntie Julie!

Cayden had days of entertainment with this box that him and daddy turned into a bus/motor home/car (it changed all the time)

Ellie loves to sleep like this with Daddy and that is a rare occasion for her to have a pacifier, she hardly ever wants one..

I just love these two, they already have a special bond and I love to see it

4th of July!

We had a lot of fun this 4th of July! We started the day off by going to my parent's wards breakfast.
This shirt is 100% Cayden..

Our family =) After the breakfast we bought some fireworks!

Cayden is such a proud big brother..

love the little sleeping grins..

After a yummy dinner we headed over to Mike's parents to have some fun with fireworks, little did we know it was going to be a war zone! There were illegal fireworks going off EVERYWHERE and very close to us so we had a free show the whole night. Cayden had a lot of fun with the fireworks for a little while then got burned by a sparkler and then had no interest in lighting them anymore =(. Luckily after an hour or so he was back at it again.

Week 2!

At 2 weeks Ellie was already starting to sleep longer at night, one time she went 4 1/2 hours which was a big deal for me =) Ellie loves to wait until she has a freshly changed diaper on to poop, she still wants to eat every two hours but every now and then will go three! She rarely spits up, like not even once a day and has never had an "explosion". She grew quickly out of her Newborn clothes and was wearing 0 to 3 at 2 weeks. Ellie had a never ending umbilical cord, it never fully closed up so when the nasty dried up part fell off finally when she was around 2 weeks, you could see the fresh umbilical cord still there, yes gross! They ended up cauterizing it which luckily did not hurt her at all and thank goodness she didn't need surgery because it healed up a week later! At Ellie's two week check up she was already at 8 pounds and 20 1/2 inches!

Week 1

We are soo in love with our sweet little Ellie, here is the happenings of the first week!
The first couple nights she did NOT sleep which was exhausting for both Mike and I. She wants to eat EVERY two hours on the dot if not sooner. She pees all of the time, especially when I am in the middle of changing her diaper. Ellie loves to be held or just be close to us which at this time we don't mind one bit =) We love all of her "smiles" which is always guaranteed after she eats. After she has a little sneeze attack she makes the cutest little sigh that we cant get enough of.
Ellie did not like her first bath at home..

Cayden and Auntie Julie having some fun in the pool!

Love that Ellie has a big grin in this pic..

Love seeing her beautiful eyes open..

Cayden is a very happy big brother..

Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Beky and Cayden and Ellie's cousin Starrla came for a visit..

Cuddle time with Daddy's little lady (that is what Mike calls her)

Love that smile..

Ellie and I went out with Julie and Cayden to the playground to get some fresh air which we both loved.
