One Month Old!



I can't believe we've had our little Bella for a month already! Time flies! Bella had her 2 week appointment and had gained a whole pound! Dr. Berry affectionately calls me "The Dairy Queen." She is a healthy little girl! She is sleeping pretty well, so we can't complain!

Jumping the Gun



I guess Spring doesn't technically start for a few more weeks, but I got bored of the "Snowman/Pine" theme for my kitchen. I went to Michaels this weekend and found my Spring decor! I was so excited about it, that I put it up right away! It is so bright and cheery! The beautiful colors make me happy in this world of white! We did manage to see the sun on Saturday, and spent most of the afternoon outside! Oh, how we are looking forward to Spring!

President's Day Party




We went out to breakfast at IHOP then bowling with Josh's family for our President's Day festivities. The kids loved picking up those heavy bowling balls and rolling them down the little "slide."

I love you cookies


I made little sugar cookies for the kids for Valentine's day, and they wanted to eat them for breakfast! Needless to say, it was a hit!

A new Addiction!!!


A Scrapbooking Attempt


I found a site that lets you create scrapbook pages for free, and thought I would give it a whirl! I am an avid paper scrapbooker, but this online thing could be something fun! It was very easy and quick. These are a couple of my favorite pics from our Island Park summer vacation.

Happy Valentine's Day!






Here's my newest Valentine! Aren't these kids the cutest?! Can you feel the love?

Beautiful Bella





Visitors!




Josh's sister Staci brought us dinner one night. It is fun to have company! Staci's baby, Dallin, is 2 weeks older than Bella! Cute cousins!

Mega Post of January!!!

Wow! We are home from the hospital with our little Bella Rose! She had a few hang ups, and had to stay a couple extra nights in the NICU, but all is well! She is still on a billi blanket for her very slightly above normal billiruben count. If all goes well, she could be off of that as early as tomorrow, though. She is a sweet little girl! Kaley and Thomas just love her! Kaley is a very big helper! Thomas doesn't really notice the baby except when he gets bored, and is looking for trouble! All he knows, is that he fits just right on Mommy's lap now! Josh and I are hanging in there. We are adjusting to 3 kids! With all this snow we have, it makes for long winter days inside. We are already looking forward to Spring, and outside time!

Thanks for all the prayers and support on Bella's behalf! We appreciate all the love! I doubt things will ever settle down, but I will try to post often! We are so blessed to have Bella in our home!

At home with Bella Rose




Here we are all settled in with Bella. The last picture is her little billi blanket light. You can see the little box behind her, and there is a hose thingy that attaches the lights to the box. She looks like a little fire fly, or glow worm!

Bringing Bella home



You can see the kids anxiously waiting outside the NICU for Mommy and Bella to come out! I can't believe we have three kids! Look how full that back seat looks! :)

Proud Parents



Our Beautiful Bella Rose
