2 months old!!

Where is the time going. Micah is such a smiley baby especially when she just wakes up. We have had so much fun playing with her and listening to her little noises. She is great about letting the girls hold her and they still want to all of the time. For the last 4 nights she has slept 9 hours!! I hope she keeps it up.

Birthday Party

We had a fun little family party for Cale. Micah slept through most of it and the girls got all dressed up like princesses. Cale was great at letting Zoe help her open presents and sharing. Zoe had a few moments of sadness because she wanted what Cale got. They have been sharing the baby stroller and things really well.

Cale helping make her cake. Good thing it was just for us!!

Cale is 2!!

I had so much fun looking back at my baby growing up this last 2 years. I spent way to much time looking at pictures. I can't believe how much she has changed!! Cale is the most fun loving baby girl. She has the cutest little giggle, facial expressions, and words. She can also be the most stubborn, demanding, and frustrating little girl but we love her. She is a great little sister and big sister. She loves to give kisses and "nuggles". She is a little mimic to everything big sister does. Happy Birthday Cale!!
Her 2 year old Stats:
Heights: 35 1/4" (75%)
Weight: 28 lbs (75%)

Micah's Blessing

We were able to have lots of family come into town and be part of Micah's blessing on Sunday. It was such great day!! It was such an amazing feeling to watch all family walk up to participate in the blessing. We are so truly grateful for the support and love our family gives us. Thank to everyone for making the trip to share this special time with us.

We had a great time visiting with everyone at the house and having dinner. We were a little nervous to have 34 people at the house but it went great and the house survived!! I wish I had taken some pictures so you see everyone.

Micah was a sweet baby all day and I was able to take a few quick pictures of her. I wish the lighting had been better because Brad had her smiling a lot. Here are a couple of my favorites...

Cale, Cale, Cale......

Life is always fun with Cale. She definitely keeps us on our toes!! So here are a few Cale stories.....

We sat down for dinner the other night and I had fixed Cales plate of food. It was sitting in front of me so I could finish cooling it off. Brad said it was time for dinner and she wanted her plate. He told her she could have it after prayer. She sat through the prayer fine and then proceeded to climb out of her chair and started walking away. Brad asked her where she was going and she turned around with this little sad face and said, "MAD" and continued to walk to her room. I shouldn't have laughed but it was so cute. She has done it several times since and it is still just as cute!!

The ladder for the girls bunk bed is right next to their window. Zoe & Cale have both used it stand in the window. Lately I find Cale sitting and looking out the window. A couple of times she has had a book with her. She is a cutie!!

On Saturday we were busy getting read for a house full of people. Zoe and Cale were watching a movie and had put little sticker earrings on. Cale kept pointing to her nose and saying "earring" and following me around. I finally stopped to see if I could figure out what she was talking about and as I inspected she had blood all around her nose. Yes folks she has stuck the plastic earring up her nose. Brad tried to get it out with tweezers but it was too far up and he didn't want to dig around too much. So Brad was the lucky one to head to the quick care with her and sit for a couple of hours before seeing a doctor only to find out that it was no longer still in her nose. I am sure we will have many more trips to the doctor with her!!

On the more frustrating side she has decided that she doesn't want her diaper changed and she doesn't want to wear underwear. So even if she has a poppy diaper she would rather sit in it. The minute you decide to take on the battle the scream starts. She stiffens her body and screams. Changing her clothes is just as much fun!!

Visiting Montana

The girls and I took a quick trip to Montana. I had a doctors appointment so we got to spend a couple of days at grandma and grandpa's. Zoe loves to hang out with grandpa and will stay outside forever. Uncle Morgan is there these days so of course we were lucky to get to ride horses. The girls were so excited. Zoe is doing so well around horses. She walks right up to them and likes to feed the pellets.

They got to help with the whole process. They had fun brushing the horse.

They started off riding together but Zoe had a hard time steering the horse around Cale.

They both loved getting to ride their own horse!

Zoe had some difficult at 1st because her snow boots kept falling off. After she took them off she got the hang of kicking. She struggled a little with getting the horse to go where she wanted him to but she kept trying.

We had a great trip and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine!!

I LOVE my Binkie!!

Cale has loved her binkie from day one!! I planned on taking it away from her a long time ago but I just couldn't do it as we were moving. It was a huge help, especially in the car!! Now she is definitely attached and I am scared for the day we take it away. It doesn't matter what style as long as she has one. She has taken all of the binkies we bought for Micah. She still calls them "Micah B" but they are hers. I prefer that she only has one but she wants as many as she can find!

When she gets a good little pile of them she run to you and says, "wook, wook" and holds them up with this adorable little face. I wish I could get a picture of it. This was my attempt but I don't think I will ever be able to get the moment of excitement.

I'm Smiling!!

Brad got Micah to smile for the 1st time on Sunday. I missed it the 1st time but got it the 2nd time around. Now she is starting to smile more and more. This morning when I went in to get her out of bed she was al smiles. I can't wait to get a better picture but I thought this was pretty cute!!
