Making Future Memories

Sweetest baby ever. We are so blessed.

This may seem sort of corny but the other night at dinner, Chris and I were talking about how fun life can be sometimes. Even when we are doing nothing we are always laughing and having fun. I am not a profound person really, however a thought popped into my head that I have been thinking about all week. What we do in our everyday living, our day in and day out routine is making future memories. In 30 years Chris and I will look back remembering, laughing, crying at all the small things we did that we thought didn't matter. I have been working on trying to see the good in everything and to let the little things slide. I want my future memories to be the best ones. Life is certainly challenging right now but hey, that's how we grow. Right?!
How bad can it be when I get to hold my baby girl everyday, kiss my son and teach my teenager that life really is not so bad and lay down at night beside the man of my dreams.
Yep, life is GOOD.

Kolbie 3 months

Sweet sibling love.

He is so wrapped!

She loves bath time now and loves to have her hair washed!

She is so happy and so easy to make smile. I love seeing her personality develop. She is so content and loves to be held and loved on. I don't mind either.

Since Kolbie has such cute hair I hardly ever put hats on her. I just had to put whole outfit together and then laugh. I think she looks like a jailbird!!

Check out my hair!

My babies!

WOW! The kids are getting so big so quickly. We are enjoying the new addition and spending time together as a family of 5. It is hard to imagine life without Kolbie, seems like she has always been with us even though she is just 8 weeks old today. Conan is loving his school and it really gives him something that is just his. He has made a great friend who he talks about all the time. Taylor is busy with school and is looking forward to Spring Break.

This morning after Chris made us a yummy breakfast we decided to make a home studio in our living room and take some shots of the kids. Of Course I think they are the cutest kids ever and they take great pictures. I am so proud of all of them, makes me love being a Mother. I have so much to be thankful for and appreciate in my life. We are not perfect but we are a family.

7 weeks!

Our baby girl is 7 weeks today.
I am still wondering where the time has gone?

We took some pictures of us with the baby. She was awake with Chris and asleep for me. She loves her daddy and smiles at him all the time. I also think she is looking more like him everyday.

Growning way to fast

I can't believe Kolbie has been here with us for 5 weeks now. She is such an awesome baby and I just can't seem to get enough of her. She is smiling at us and I am totally smitten with her. Conan loves to play with her on her mat and calls her "sugar baby" Taylor is great to help out and hold her when I need to get stuff done. I am so grateful for my wonderful family and awesome friends. I am trying so hard to cherish every moment of Kolbie's infancy. I really thought that life would be way to busy to be able to sit and love on her, but I have found that I am spending more time with her and I want to remember every second of her precious life. It is truly humbling to be a mother and watch your kids have a relationship with each other.

I love the month of February! Valentines' day is just around the corner and it is my favorite holiday. I am trying my best to get the baby's birth announcements out soon.

2 weeks and 3 weeks

Man is the time flying! I am enjoying Kolbie so much. I wish she would stay a tiny little bundle forever. She started cooing at us and really makes eye contact.
