{ Sorry this is a picture overload post. Jeff surprised me with a new camera for Mothers Day so I've been going CRAZY taking pictures making up for all the times I didn't have one. This should probably be split up into 3 or 4 different posts, but both kids are asleep right now and I'm taking advantage of some uninterrupted computer time }

    We are still living with my parents in Saratoga Springs waiting to hear from Jeff's company where they want him to be for the next couple of years. It's been a little frustrating waiting and wondering where we are going to end up. I'm hoping we can stay in Utah for little while longer- at least long enough to have the little baby. Either way we have really enjoyed being with my family. Not only do I enjoy having extra helping hands, it's been fun having my mom and dad around to hang out with during the day. 
    I feel like my little boys have grown up so much in the last few months. Ben babbles and tries to hold on a conversation. He is starting to throw little tantrums and throw himself on the floor. Because he's so little it makes me laugh, but I know he's headed right for the 'terrific twos'!! Grant is right smack in the middle of toddler-hood. He picks up little phrases and sayings that he hears. The one he frequently repeats is 'Knock-id-ed off'. This is used when I have told him no or stop. It was adorable at first, but it's getting a little obnoxious! 
    Baby #3 is about the size of a large mango and growing. We got to see him yesterday during a routine ultrasound. He's a lot more mellow than his brothers were in-utero which makes me think he might be a 'laid back' baby. I'm not getting my hopes up though! He is on track to be a 7 pounder just like his brothers. It's such a comfort seeing his little heart on the screen, beating so perfectly and strong. As excited as I am to meet our newest little addition, we are thankful he still has a few more months of baking time left! 



Ben is 1.....

I'm ashamed to admit this, but I didn't take any pictures of Ben's 3 little birthday parties. So sorry this post doesn't have any pictures. My mom did take a video of Ben digging his chubby little hands into his chocolate cake, but I don't have it loaded on my computer and probably won't get around to it for a while. Ben has been walking for a few months now and tries his darndest to keep up with Grant. I love watching them interact and play with each other. I'm so happy that they have each other as friends!

Speaking of brothers...Grant and Ben will be getting new little brother in September! We just found out yesterday that #3 is a boy! We are so thrilled and can't wait for our life of football, messes, and rough housing!



Halloween/Birthday Decor (mummy candles)

Grant is two! Yay! He is a funny funny little boy who keeps me entertained ALL day long. He's got lots of energy and loves to GO GO GO! 
We had a few birthday get-togethers and had lots of fun. He loved opening his presents and blowing out the candle on the cake. We had to light it a about five times because he loved blowing it out sooo much.

It was such a fun week! Thanks to all the family for making it a memorable birthday for Grant. He loves his Grandparents, Cousins, Aunts, and Uncles. Here is random picture of Benny. He is getting soo big! He is only 1 lb lighter than Grant! Crawling everywhere and standing up and walking with the help of furniture. I can't believe I have two mobile curious boys!!


Family Pictures

We were able to get our family pictures done before the weather turned cold (freezing) Thanks Angie! They turned out awesome.
It's been forever since I've blogged and it makes me sad because I was able to keep up with recording all of Grants milestones, but I haven't kept up with Ben. :( it's on my to-do list for next week!!
