Aidan and Noah's Room

I finished up Aidan and Noah's room!!! I couldn't find any bunkbeds I really liked at a decent cost so we ended up having them made. Having them made actually ended up being better. We were able to custom design them for our kids. We had them make the bottom bunk a lot lower since it will be for Ryla and then Noah. Later we can raise it up. I also got to choose the color and went with a baseball red to match Aidan's bedding. To finish it off I got Noah some baseball bedding as well. It turned out pretty cute. I think we will move Ryla in there in just a couple of month!!!

Easter Weekend 2012

We had a great Easter weekend. The kids got to participate in three Easter egg hunts and had a blast. I would say this is the first year that Aidan really was excited and understood the concept of the egg hunt. The only draw back to the weekend was that I did not get a family photo or even a photo of all the kids together but it was still a good time!

Presto pizza!

My friends Sara and Jennifer were reading my blog and started laughing. When I asked what they were laughing at they said my presto recipe post. I was so embarrassed. My mistake everyone.....I meant my pesto

Cinnamon Rolls!!!!

Last Thursday I made my first batch of cinnamon rolls. It tool most of the day, but was well worth it as the recipe I used (The Pioneer Woman) made about 45 rolls. We had some for dinner that night and I was able to freeze the rest for some chili dinners to come. Ryla helped me out which is always an adventure. I think they turned out pretty good. I sent a batch over to the church staff and they seemed to enjoy them. Here are some pics of Ryla and I's baking expedition!!!

Aidan/Noah Comparison

Here is a comparison of my little men both at age 2 months!


Noah at 2 Months!!

My little guy is already 2 months old!!! The biggest news with him is that he has been reallllly sick. He had a horrible cough for about 3 weeks. We took him to the doctor 3 times and he even had some chest x-rays done. They just kept telling us that it was going to take time to get over but that his lungs looked good. It was really hard for Cliff and I to watch him go through it. The cough just sounded horrible. He is finally getting a little better but unfortunately he has lost some weight so his two month stats were a little low. He has done so well through it all though. He was still sleeping great and would only wake up if his cough woke him up. Here is a little bit about him lately.

Weight is 10 pounds 13 ounces- 25 %
Height is 23.5- 80%
Head 15.5- 75 %
Size 1 diapers
Getting up 1 to 2 times a night
Eating really well.
Still has beautiful dark brown hair
Really dark blue eyes
LOVES to be held and be in his swing.
