Wow I love Christmas with kids... It's so magical. I loved watching Austin's face light up when he saw his new toys. On Christmas eve we went to the big Kinsey party. We had dinner , watched the kid programs, played games and exchanged gifts. On Christmas morning we stayed home cooked a big breakfast and played with toys. We then went to my parents house and had lunch and exchanged gifts. We were so spoiled. We then went to Bridgers parents and had dinner and did gifts. By the end of the day we were so exhausted we were all in bed by 9. I am so grateful for all my family and friends in my life. I am so blessed to have a amazing husband and 2 beautiful, healthy children. Merry Christmas everyone!
Hi little miss... You are 6 weeks old.You are such a good baby. You now weigh 9 pounds. We took you to the doctor yesterday to follow up on your jaundice. They said you were still a little to yellow so I had to take you to the lab at the hospital to run tests. They came back and said you are doing great. You have been going to the chiropractor for your reflux and fussiness and it is working so good that we only have to go every 2 weeks now. You are starting to smile and I love it. You are such a beautiful girl. Austin can't get enough of you... I think you guys will be best friends. I love you little miss Charli.
Hey little man you are 16 months old. You seem to learn something new everyday. You are learning to count to 3, animal sounds, clean up toys, sharing your toys, and so much more. I know I say it every month but I love this stage of your life. We have so much fun playing together ... Making forts, having picnics in the living room and making dinner together. I am so lucky to spend all day with you and your sister. You still LOVE your sister. If she is crying you make sure to come and find me, or if her binky is laying by her you will just put it in her mouth. When she is swinging in the swing you think she needs to go higher and you push her until she is pretty much falling out. I'm sure she is going to be tuff... She will be your little shadow pretty soon. Thanks for being such a great big brother. We love you!!
Stats : Wt. 7 lbs 6 oz. (21 %)
Ht. 20.5 in. (57%)
HC 14 in. (39%)
Charli had her 2 week check up last week. She has gained 1 pound since we left the hospital. Way to go baby girl. She still is a little jaundice so we are going to watch her for a little while and lay by the windows to catch a little sun. We have been taking her to the chiropractor Dr. dummar to help with her reflux. He has been wonderful... He holds little pressure points and does acupuncture on her. It scared me a little to think she was going to have needles put in her but she doesn't even flinch and falls into a deep sleep. I am so grateful to have options like this instead of giving her medicine. We are hoping she isn't lactose intolerant like Austin is. We are so happy that she is part of our family. Austin cannot give her enough kisses through out the day. He is such a great big brother. If her binky falls out he will run over and put it back in. Yesterday i caught him trying to feed her his cookie. He will also bring toys to her. I love my little family so much and I am so blessed.
Hey little man today we took you to the doctors...You now weigh 23 lbs. You are not my baby anymore you are my little out of control toddler. You love to climb on everything. Every morning while we clean up breakfast and the house we have dance parties.... You have some awesome moves. You love to help me dust, mop, wipe down the mirrors and vacuum. I really hope that it will last. Little man you are a big brother now.... An amazing big brother. I was so nervous to see how everything would work out since you are such a mommas boy, but you love Charli. You love to give her kisses and when she cries you are very concerned. Things that you are learning right now are body parts, diff. Commands such as putting toys away, throwing things into the garbage, how to say please and thank you, how to use your spoon with a bowl. You are a little jokester. You hide behind doors and curtains and love to scare us. You also love to hide your toys in our shoes. I am a very proud mom and i love watching you grow and learn. I love that I am able to stay home and play all day with you. Love you little man.
Our little girl charli marie wilde is finally here weighing in at 6 lbs. 14 oz. and 19 in long. We are so thankful she is here and healthy. We are so in love with her. I will do a post later about the whole experience.... For now enjoy the pics

This year Halloween was low key. We dressed the little man up as a alligator and went trick or treating to family and friends. Austin actually started to get the concept in the end. We love our little alligator!
My sister in law had her baby last week... So my cute niece and nephew came to visit for the week. My mother in law cindy and I took them to thanksgiving point. We wanted to go to the corn maze but it was closed. So instead we went and did there petting farm. I didn't realize how much there is to do there. We will be going back. Later that week we carved pumpkins.... They turned out awesome. Austin loved touching the guts :) in the pumpkins. It was a great week with them... I miss them already! Happy Halloween!!
Wow you are 14 months old. You are turning into a little toddler. This last month you have been so fun! I love to watch you learn and conquer new things like running, climbing up and down the stairs, learning new words (eye, uh oh, mama for grandma, nana for banana), following comands (throwing things in the garbage, closing doors, touching your nose, high fives, give a kiss or hug) you are learning to use your spoon and fork. You are so brave and out of control... when we go to the park you don't want to go down the little slide you have to takle the biggest one. You like to do everything by yourself and you will throw a tantrum until you get your way. You are working on your molars and that has made you cranky. In the last month you had a boys weekend with dad, had playdates with your cousins and friends, and have played outside as much as you can before the snow flies. Thanks for being my best friend little man...we only have one month left of me and you before little sister will be here.. so i am going to soak up all the time that we can get. Love you little man!!!!
Little man this month has been a big milestone. I feel like since your birthday you have learned so many new things. You now are a pro walker and try to run every where you go. You have to try to climb up everything. It makes us very nervous because you are not scared of anything. You now understand how to go up and down the stairs. You get a new bruise daily...you have a little trike that you push around and then stand on top of it to make you a little taller to get where you want to go.. like mom and dads bed..the couches.. coffee table. You LOVE to play outside. You will go and stand by the doors and pound on them to let you out. We have gates in our drive way to lock you in and we let you run wild. You know when the gates are open and you get close to the road that you have to hold my hand. Your favorite things to do outside is play with the hose, move rocks and play in the dirt. You still only say a few words (mom, dad, hi and now you say nana for banana. We think you call your cousin Paislee.. zee zee) You wave like your great grandpa kinsey.. (you scrunch your fingers) You like to give high fives and we are teaching you nuckles. You now on demand will give hugs and kisses (they are my favorite) Your laugh is contagious...no matter how bad a day is your little giggle can change everything. You are working on your 7th tooth. We had a hard time brushing your teeth but we learned that you liked our vibrating toothbrushes so we got you one and now you love to brush your teeth. You love to watch me cook... i will pull a chair up to the counter and you will stand on it and want to help. Little man you are going to be a big brother in 2 months and it makes me sad that you are growing up so fast, but i love to see you grow and learn new things. Your little sister is going to look up to you and I can't wait until you can start teaching her things that you are learning now. I am pretty sure she is excited to meet you.. because when you cuddle with me on my belly she will start to move and kick you. I know you can feel her because you will start tapping your leg back at her. You seem to be the only one that can get her to move on cue. We love you little man and I am so greatful that you are in our family.
So when I found out I was pregnant I was pretty bummed when I knew I couldn't fit both babies in the BOB. I love love love my BOB. But the dbl. BOB is side by side and if you watch moms try to fit down doors or hallways..i just feel for them. So i have been researching strollers and i found one that I love....and I found it on ksl for cheap. I used it today at swiss days..now i know i dont have 2 kids but.. i sure do have a cute niece. My new fave thing........ Kolcraft optima dbl. stroller. I turned the front seat around and Pais and Austin could look and play with each other...they loved it. Its super skinny but way long. Underneath the seats is the basket so it fit alot of swiss days stuff :)
So today I needed to see this... this is horrible to say but lately i have been in a rut and just need to get out of it and stop taking life for granted. Today I am going to hug bridger and austin a little tighter. If you have not seen this.. you will need a box of tissues. click here to watch the video www.godvine.com/How-One-Family-Went-From-Tragedy-To-Miracle-668.html
This man makes me so giddy. He still gives me the butterflies. He is the best daddy in the whole world. He works so hard for our family. I can't believe it has been 5 years. I love you more everyday! Thanks for being my everything!!!
i love this pic... they were out. Bridger is going to kill me when he sees that it is on here :)
Pais and Austin taking a snack break.
We went to 7 Peaks on saturday with Britt, Cody and Pais. It was such a beautiful day. The babes love the water. To bad i would forget my camera when we would go to the water...at least i got a couple while we were hanging out. Thanks for going with us Colemans!
Bridger and I started dating the end of our senior year of highschool. We dated on and off for a few years and was married August 18, 2006. We just moved back to Heber and bought a house in Daniels. Bridger started his new job with PWC and is loving it. I am lucky to be a stay at home and play all day with our little man Austin and Baby girl Charli.
