Austin months 22 & 23

Hi little man. You are 1 month from your 2nd birthday. I have no idea where the last 2 years have gone. You are so fun right now! You LOVE trains, trucks, balls, otter pops, jeeps, Thomas the train, caillou, and playing outside. You wake up every morning and the first thing you want is Charli. You two are best friends. You would do anything for her. My favorite thing that you guys do is when we are driving somewhere and you guys will just start laughing wars and laugh at each other. You my buddy... Are seriously amazing with any kind of ball. Dad showed you how to drop kick a soccer ball and you got it on the 2nd try and seriously amazing at it. I love you little man. Your my best friend. Love you!

Charli month 7&8

Baby girl you have gotten so big these last few weeks. You are 8 months old today. You seriously have the cutest laugh. When you get so excited you flap your arms, wiggle your toes, and get such big eyes. You are finally sitting up on your own... You have been able to do it for months but you would fight us and make your body completely stiff and you just want to stand or lay down. We finally are over that speed bump. You are starting to love food. Rice crispies, grapes, otter pops, and squash are your favorite. You have figured out your voice and you love it. You babble so loud that it makes you laugh. You are definitely a mamas girl. You are starting to notice when I leave the room and you want to go with. My favorite time of the day with you is in the morning.... You wake ups little bit before your brother so we snuggle in my bed and have our morning talk. You sleep in your own bedroom now and you love it. You dont have to hear your dad snore... I might be a little jealous. You love to go to the park and play in the sand. You still don't have any teeth but you have been teething for over a month... The dang these just love to bug you... Sorry baby girl. Your hair is starting to come in and when it's wet it goes curly... Love it! You are the longest skinniest baby girl. When you stand next to your brother you hit the bottom of his chin. You love your toes painted... You now know they are there and love to play with them. We finally got your stomach issues figured out and it has made you a happy baby... Which means a happy mom and you baby girl.... I can't imagine life without you!

Fathers day

This year we celebrates fathers two different weekends. The first fathers day we had two different parties. The first party we went to was at the wildes. Cindy's father and grandpa came up to. We ate dinner and just hung out with the family. We did get a 5 generation photo with Charli and her grandparents. We did one with Austin when he was a baby. They are so lucky to have so many grandparents who love them! The second party was at my house for my family's fathers day and my dads 50 th birthday party. We had BBQ and played minute to win it. It was so much fun! I tried to upload the videos because they are hilarious but blogger wouldn't work. I'm so grateful for all the father figures in our life! Happy 50yh dad!

I did it.... I finished Ragnar. I have been training since feb-march and I was scared to death. I hate running..... Like a lot. I wanted a goal this year that I knew would be hard and this was it. Thank goodness for a good friend Megan for pushing and helping me on the way. My team was so much fun... In our van their was me, Megan, Erin (Meg's sister) Andy ( Meg's BIL) and Trisha and Shawn Holmes. I was runner #7. The easiest of all the legs.... Thank you meg! Our team started at 1130 on Friday, our van didn't start until about 5. My first run was in Eden.... What a beautiful run. I had such a high .. It was by far my fastest run. My second run was probably my favorite (before Ragnar I was freaking out about this run... Kinda scared of the dark and animals) I started at 2 am and it was. A 3.6 up east canyon. It was awesome running under the stars and it seemed so peaceful even though I was jammin! My third run was thru charleston... My hometown. I loved it... All the kids that lived out on that road had their hoses and squirt guns out... Which was awesome because it was so hot! I've got to say after this experience I kinda... I mean kinda like running now. After 38 hours of maybe 20 min of sleep, getting to know new friends, and finishing a goal.... I'm so grateful for that opportunity.
