All about Eden...

So 2 posts in 2 days! Yay me!! Ok so Eden is just growing up so much. I can't tell you how much I love this little girl. She is smart, so sweet, compassionate, funny, affectionate...I could go on and on! She is now 21 months! I just feel so blessed to have such a special spirit in our family. Sometimes she'll just run up to me and give me the biggest hug! When she can tell I'm a little sad, she touches my face and says, "mommy sad?" and she'll act sad and just hug me. What a sensitive girl huh? I need that with Christian for a husband...haha! Love you sweetie! She talks ALL the time and is starting to really talk, like in sentences! I don't always understand what she's saying but for the most part we can have full on conversations!! She LOVES mickey mouse, and anything disney really! She loves to watch movies (mostly disney ones) Her favorites right now are Cars (she calls it vroom vroom), Ratatouille (yes she loves Remmy the Rat) and Meet the Robinsons (she calls this one Lewis). She loves to color, play with bubbles, read books and dance to 80s music with mommy! She loves to play pretend, she is always the mommy when she plays with her dolls! She's such a good big sister to Ella. One of the first things she asks for in the morning is for Ella! She is always trying to hug and kiss her. When Ella is crying, she tries to give her her binky or rock her chair to comfort her! She'll sometimes give Ella her precious blanky when Ella's really upset! She understands pretty much everything and amazes Christian and I with the things she learns from just watching us or what she sees in her books or her shows! She's so good about sharing her time with Ella! She never makes a scene when I have to tend to the baby. I just couldn't have asked for a better first baby! I get emotional sometimes thinking about her because she's just growing up so fast. She truly is my best friend and I wouldn't want to spend the day with anyone else but her!

So I have to do a little sister hand sewed Eden and Ella's christmas dresses. Yes she made these dresses! Without a pattern I might add. THey were so beautiful. Not a seam showing anywhere, fit them PERFECTLY. I couldn't have bought better dresses for them! She's amazing! She's starting up her own little boutique in the near future so look forward to seeing more of her really cute stuff. If anyone is interested in having a dress made, just let me know!
So I just have to say that I do not know how I got so lucky in my life! Look at my 2 beautiful daughters! What a lucky mom I am! They both have such sweet personalities. They make it so easy to be a mom. I am just so so thankful to my Heavenly Father for sending these 2 little one's to me!

All About Ella...

Well Ella is now 13 weeks old! I cannot believe how fast time has flown by with her! At her last Dr.'s Appt she weighed 11 and a half pounds and she's starting to get some chubby cheeks and thighs!! She smiles and coos and loves to watch her sister do anything! She can sit in her bumbo all by herself and loves it! She's just so fun to have in our house! We love her so much and are so happy she's here!!

Already loving Mickey Mouse!! We start them early!!!

Ring in the New Year!

With the holidays over and things starting to wind down and get back to normal, I can't help but be a little bit sad! This Christmas was so much fun being here in utah! Christan has tons of family here and so we were able to have lots of family parties and get togethers! I am just so lucky that I married into such an amazing family! I just love spending time with them! Christmas was SO much fun with Eden this year! She was so excited to open all her presents and she just rbougth so much joy to all of us this season. She is growing up to be such a sweet, loving, funny little girl! I just love her so much! Ella is growing up too fast! SHe is smiling so much and starting to giggle! She is so much fun and we love having her in our home! Christian and I got to spend New Year's Eve ALONE this year, thanks mom and dad! It's so nice having them so close and so willing to watch the girls for us! We had a much needed, relaxing night! We even slept in until 10 AM!!! We took Eden sledding for her first time and it was so much fun! She loved it so much! It was so cute to watch her just laugh the whole way down!
I am so excited for this new year and can't wait to see what it brings us! One of my resolutions this year is to run a half marathon!!!! I am really excited. I have never done anything like this and so I am really looking forward to working at it! I hope everyone had a great holiday and that you're as excited as we are for this new year!!
