Brookes final photo shoot with Carin Davis. I love her work and am so grateful she was able to fit her into her busy schedule and capture the milestones of her first year. I can't believe she's a year old already. I remember setting up the dates for her 3, 6, 9 and 12 months with her. It's come and gone already. Thanks Carin for the beautiful work you do and for the chance I've had to learn a little from you. You're amazing!
Today at church it was Fast and Testimony meeting. A little boy (he's Sky's age and in her Primary class) got up and bore his testimony. Jett saw him and said, "I want to do that!" Neils immediately said, "Okay." I gave Neils the look of "don't you dare let him go up there by himself" so Neils said "I'll go with him". With hesitation, I said "okay." Jett marched right up there with the biggest smile on his face. I was worried. Neils put him up on the stool so he could reach the mic and went to whisper something for him to say in his ear. Before he could Jett had already started talking and said... "I love my mommy, I love the church, Jesus Christ amen." And with a smile walked back to his seat. Sky met him halfway in the isle and gave him a big hug and said to him, "You did a great job Jett!" I couldn't help but melt. I felt like, maybe I am doing something right at home. He is an angel child. He has his moments like any other 2 year old boy, but he is the sweetest, most darling boy. Thanks for making my day Jett! I love you!
I love that Sky is learning to read/spell. Except for the fact that every two seconds she is asking me, "how do you spell...?" It's great though when she attempts to spell words on her own. For instance today on her drawing board she had written, "DIR DIRE" I asked her what it spelled and of course, Dear Diary ("cause that is what Stephanie says on Lazy Town"). Another favorite was how she spelled Puppy, her version is PUB... (you might have to think hard about this one. But the way she says it is Pu-Bee so it makes sense that's how she would try and spell it.) I love it!!!!
My little "jabber jaws" says the cutest things all the time. So now that Christmas is over and we don't get to hear him say he wants a blue motorcycle, I have a new favorite phrase he says all the time... He will pick something big up and try and move it. When I say something to the likes of "Whoa Jett what are you doing?" He returns with a smile and as he's managing to put it down with out killing himself says, "See I told ya, I have big muscles."
Brookeys latest likes. She likes to get into the cupboards and get out the sippy cups. She'll watch them roll across the kitchen floor. She still loves to watch Super Why. She likes listening to kid songs. Her favorite songs are Wheels on the Bus and If You're Happy and You Know It. She knows the motions. Eating Cheetos. She's psycho if she sees me eating them and will scream until I give her one. She LOVES Mac and Cheese! LOVES, LOVES, LOVES it. I can't believe how much she'll eat in one sitting. I think she likes anything with a cheese flavor. She loves her Grandpa and gives him the biggest hugs. She loves watching their dog Zeus run around. She tries to chase after him and isn't quite sure what to do when she catches up to him. She is such a fun, easygoing kid. I can't believe she's almost a year old. I love watching her grow and wish she'd stay this age forever.

My Neils-C found me online (with the help of an old girlfriend) on LDSsingles.com in October of 1999. We've been married alomst 7 years and have 3 beautiful children, Sky, Jett and Brooke. We live the life I have always dreamed of... oh wait, I didn't dream about potty training.
