We finally got our first pictures of Jaxsen and Zander together. Jaxsen is 4 months older the Zander but I hope they will be the best of friends! It is hilarious to see how much bigger Jaxsen is when they are put side to side.
My cousin Heather married her sweetheart, Jerimiah on June 18th in the Salt Lake Temple. We loaded all the fam and headed down to SLC for the wedding. The girls enjoyed running around temple grounds and had such cute dresses on thanks to Grandma Mortensen! They were so cute and Jaxsen is always quite the stud!
So I had a few people ask why no new posts? Well the answer is because nothing is going on! Life as we know it is boring! So I thought I would post a cute pic of my family and tell what the kids are up to.
Drew just started coming every other week for a week. I don't know how he feels about this because there is not much going on right now but never the less we love having him here.
Brooklyn has gotten more and more independent. I just got her a new swimming suit and every day she wears it whether it is 50 degrees or 80 degrees. Which right now is 50 degrees! Isn't it summer!
Baylee just went in for her 18 month appointment. She is still my little tiny. 24 pounds and 31 inches tall. She is starting to say a few words such as mom, da, uh oh and a few others if you listen really carefully. She loves following her sister around and loves to get under her skin! It is hilarious. She is also figuring out how to throw a fit! YIKES!
Jaxsen is my little buddy! He already is a mamas boy. Which is Andrew thinks is funny, why is it that it is not cool to be a mama's boy but it is cool to be a daddy's girl. Not fair! Jaxsen is smiling away and cooing. He is also trying to roll over but he is a pretty big guy so that is a lot meat to roll over!
We are still at my parents house, I am so thankful that they are willing to allow us to live here and mess up their home. With Andrew working so much it has truly been a blessing!
Someone in my family told Brooklyn we are eating at Cinderella's castle when we go to Disney World in November. The funny thing is Brooklyn has no clue when November is so everyday she tells me she wants to eat at the castle when I ask her what she wants for lunch! It is going to be a long 6 months!
Brooklyn got a new stroller for her dollies but isn't allowed to have until she goes poop in the potty (refer to old blog). She refuses to go number 2 in the potty but really really want her stroller. Anyways she comes to me one night and saysBrooklyn: "My dolly so heavy."Me: "I sorry."Brooklyn: "I think I need my stroller to put heavy dolly in."She thinks she is so slick! Must get it from her dad!
We are pulling into Walmart yesterday and Brooklyn says, Brooklyn: "I get a snow white toy?" Me: "We'll see." Brooklyn: "Don't say no mama. You be nice to me." Honestly what do you say to that?
Brooklyn wakes up a Grandma Lemmons house this morning and tells grandma, Brooklyn: "I wanna make cookies!" (At 8:30 in the morning I might add.) Grandma: "I've got to go to work right now." Brooklyn: "Grandma, girls don't go to work, boys do." Where she gets her logic I'll never know. Hope grandma is ok!
I picked up Drew yesterday and he tells me that he got his license to shoot birds. (Which I am not a fan of of but that is up to him). Anyways he says he was able to go hunting last week. I said- ME: "How did you do?" DREW: "I can't hit the broad side of a barn" just a serious as can be.
Grandma and Brooklyn were making cookies and grandma happened to be a little tired. In the process of making cookies Brooklyn spilled a glass of juice that was on the counter. Grandma apparently said a little too loud "GET DOWN!" Brooklyn ran off crying, a few minutes later she returned and said to Grandma "Grandma, you scared me to crap!"
Brooklyn: Mom, you know what? Me: What? Brooklyn: (In her most serious voice) Trix are for kids! And that silly rabbit keeps trying to get them! He is such a silly rabbit!
04/10 As I was putting the girls down for a nap I told Baylee that if she got out of bed I was going to spank her butt (I have to threaten in order for her to stay put!) Brooklyn always has to add as soon as I say I am going to spank someones butt "With a spoon." I don't know where she got that from. Anyways Baylee this time decided to say "With a spoo, or a fooook, or a knife. Really harrrd. All I could do was laugh.
5/10 We went into the bathroom this evening and miss Baylee had about 15 of the band-aids removed from the paper, spread out and stuck to the bathroom counter. ARRRGGGG!
Baylee and Jaxsen were going crazy tonight wrestling and running all over the living room! Andrew looked at them as they were crawling all over him and said "Who put a quarter in you?" Baylee responded by saying "ME!"
