Brotherly LOVE

I don't think Sage is the one who has the problem of holding still for pictures. Although, Chandler has taken it upon himself to help her out for a quick snap shot.
He basically ignored her for the first three months of her life. He occasionally kissed her on the top of her head and would say, "hello Sagey!" (He only calls her Sagey, I don't think he knows otherwise).
These past few weeks he can't get enough of her. Always talking to her, kissing on her, wanting to hold her, feed her a bottle, peeks in on her while she is sleeping and even soaps her up in the tub. Oh, the brotherly love. I hope it lasts for a long time.

Oh, to be Four

Today's most stressful decisions- what to take for show-n-tell, what to eat for lunch(a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a cheese crisp) and what song to sing for Family Home Evening.

We Can't Believe...

she is four months today!
she smiles, laughs and coos
she tells the best stories
she has discovered her fingers and hands
she holds her own bottle
she takes three naps a day
she sleeps from 10:30pm to 7:30am
she rides "her bike" all day when she's awake
she is a great listener
she tries to roll over, but hasn't yet
she weighs 13 pounds 7 ounces
she is truly the peacemaker of the family

happy birthday sweet girl

We are BACK!

The kids and I flew to Arizona and spent two wonderful and sunny weeks with the family! Our number one reason for going, was to welcome Aunt Lacey home from her mission.
The Reunion...

These two were famous on Lacey's mission for all their funny sayings Lacey would tell the others.

We also attended cousin Haylee's sealing and got our exercise at the reception from all that dancing!

Kate and Gramma

We are always so grateful to spend time with our family and friends (staying up too late, game nights, hours at the park, hopscotch, ping pong tournaments, jewelry making, eating at our favorite places, shopping, laughing and eating some more).

It's always hard to leave, but we were sure excited to get back to our Stevie!
