It feels like summer is already slipping out of our fingers! It's going by so fast because we have been so busy and are only going to get busier with family reunions, wedding/baby showers, weddings, camping trips etc. We are excited!
We are loving the warm (HOT) weather and try to enjoy it as much as we can! We have gotten a ton of use out of our pass of all passes and have made several trips to play mini golf and go swimming at seven peaks! Evelyn LOVES playing outside any chance we get but sometimes will ask to go back inside when it gets too hot! We have gone to a couple parades and Evelyn LOVES them! Except for all the loud cars and sirens. She always covers her ears and says "bye-bye!" One of the many reasons we love Utah in the summer is All the town festivals and parades and activities!
We have been looking for a new place to live and let me tell you, IT'S HARD! Hard to find something that you like and that will fit our needs and our family for a good price! We have found a couple that we liked ok but we feel like we need to keep looking. So hopefully the right one will come along! Preferably before this baby comes along! But if not, it's really not the end of the world!
Speaking of baby, I am almost 28 weeks! WOO!! Honestly, this pregnancy has gone by SO fast for me! WAAAY faster than when I was pregnant with Evelyn or the twins! I'm feeling great! My body is starting to ache and I'm SUPER hot but other than that, I am feeling great! Going for walks every day and exercising is helping a lot! I have my Glucose test in a couple weeks and I am nervous! As for names for this little girly, we haven't chosen one! We keep finding ones that we agree on and are okay, but haven't found one that we LOVE yet! Maybe we'll have to wait til she gets here? I don't know! I remember with Evelyn I was so motivated to sew and craft for her but with this one, I am WAY less motivated! Maybe because I have a busy one year old to look after? I don't know but I need to get on the ball! I know I have all the clothes/bows i'll need but I at least want to make her a couple of he own blanky's and a quilt! I REALLLLLY want to learn how to crochet! A lady in our ward has offered to help me so I will take her up on that! I think sometime this week! So hopefully I'll have some fun stuff to show soon!
Evelyn is learning SOOO much and talking like CRAZY! ALL. DAY. LONG! She talks so loud during sacrament meeting! I don't know how to make her be quiet! When its time for prayer she yells "PRAYER!" and "AMEN!" and yells whatever she is drawing/coloring or if she hears a baby she yells "BABY! BABY!" AH! We keep trying to teach her how to whisper, which used to be the only way she talked but she just doesn't get it! She loves nursery! She did so well for the first few weeks and then one day there was a girl SCREAMING when we took her in there and so ever since then, Evelyn cries when we drop her off but seems to get over it by the time we leave. Today she didn't even cry though so hopefully she's getting over that! She is so cute and just makes us giggle all the time! I wish I could know what was going through her head! She loves to dance and color and go on walks and play in the water (not if it's spraying her). One of my (MANY) favorite things that she says is when we help her do something or do something for her she says"there ya go! Thank you!" haha cracks me up every time! We have started a strict time out with her and seems to really be working (most days). Of course, she has bad days where I want to rip my hair out but most of the time it works well for us! Her hair is growing so fast and it's so fun to finally be able to play with it a little bit! I just am amazed at how much she learns every day! She is starting to copy everything we do and it's so cute but also kind of scary! I really have to watch myself and watch what I say! We just really love her and hope so bad that our next baby is as cute and smart and funny and sweet as she is! Just a little less crazy! I would take a more mellow baby this time around!
We are so excited for all the adventures we have ahead of us!
Most of our pictures are of Evelyn and most of them are just playing around the house but they are still so cute! So enjoy!
I will try to get better at updating and posting more pictures and videos!
playing with Daddy! Pure JOY!
Feeding the ducks
COLORING! Her favorite! And I think she might be a lefty!
so good at folding her arms
I always make her wear a bib when she plays with chalk because it STAINS! I did not know that! It stained some of her clothes! Lesson learned!
First time at the splash pad. She wasn't so sure about it! She's gotten better since then!
