Blog overload

So it has been awhile since I updated out blog, so there are a lot of posts. Most of them are pictures, but I separated them into different categories and posts instead of doing one big long post. Start at the bottom and come up. Hope you enjoy.

madalyn's update

Madalyn is now 6 weeks old. How fast time flies. She had her four week doctors appointment on March 30th. She had gained 13 ounces and weighed 8 lbs 15 oz and was 22 inches long. the doctor said she is still looking healthy and growing good.
She still doesn't like to sleep unless she is snuggling with someone and she loves to sleep right next to Eric or I at night. She spits up a lot and at times she spits up her whole meal. She also gets gassy/fussy/cholicy at night. She is starting to smile and focus on you when you talk to her. We love her to pieces and she is a joy to have in our house.

Bryson's update

Bryson has been busy with school. One week they had a pirate week (before all the pirates in the news) and he got to dress up as a pirate.

He loves holding his sister and giving her loves. When he was making easter eggs he made and egg for Madalyn

carley's update

Carley and cousin Makena after they had a sleep over the night before. Carley loves playing with her cousins and having another girl to play with

Carley outside at my parents house. She doesn't last very long for me to take pictures, but I got a couple good ones.

The week before we left Carley helping Grandma provo whip the whipping cream for eric's birthday cake.

yard work

One of the main reasons for going out to Colorado was to give my mom her mother's day present. She has been wanting garden boxes for the last couple years and her and my dad never get around to doing it. So I thought it would be a good idea if Eric and my brother worked together and make them. They did the boxes on Saturday and then the dirt was delivered early Monday morning and Eric helped my brother move the dirt before we left.

easter sunday pics

I love buying the kids new clothes and it is fun when I actually have a purpose. Here are some of the pictures in their Easter outfits.

Aunt Denise braided Carley's hair. I wish I could braid

Playgroup in Colorado

While in Colorado we were able to go to playgroup with my sister-in-law and her kids. They were having an easter egg hunt and the kids loved it.

Grandma and Grandpa

A trip to Grandma and Grandpa's wouldn't be complete without pictures. This was the first time my dad had seen Madalyn. My mom was a great help at 3:00 in the morning when Madalyn wouldn't go back to sleep.
