Bailey and Brooklyn

This is the BROOKLYN Jean Jiggity-James! Her and Bailey are just two peas in a pod.

As brooklyn was leaving bailey runs to her and kisses her on the cheek and says" I love you, (then looks seriously at her and says,) Brooke, stick with me, and I will get you EVERYTHING I want.........I mean, YOU want...ok, bye! I love you bye!!

Brooke and Bailey are just soooo close. They have been almost inseperable for the past two and a half years. I just love these girls!

My Babies

I just love this picture. Jessica Heileman is an amazing photographer. I'm so lucky I got her as a photographer. She can do anything I want. This picture is not edited yet. She is PRO on Adobe Photoshop. So if anyone needs pictures I highly recommend hiring her to do your family pictures. She is especially gifted with baby pictures.

I'd like to give a little shout out to Joel and Robby thanks for looking. and for proof that you looked I would like a call or you can leave a comment. remember you are the reason I make this blog.
So! Its sooooo nice to have my mom up here right now! I love the extra hands! (sorry mom, I do love your company too:)) Mom thank you soo much for finishing up projects and cleaning and giving me a morning to sleep in! I wish you were up here every month! :)
I slept in until 10 am!!!!! OH MY GOSH. I dont remember the last time I slept in until ten. Its been longer than 6 years. So thank you!
Down below you will see a slideshow of these amazing pictures. They are done by Jessica Heileman as well. Sorry to promote her so much Im just so happy with the way they turned out. Thank you Jessica!

Taylors Surgery

It finally happened. Taylor went in for surgery today. We checked in at 6:30am. the sugery lasted a good hour and a half. She came out and woke up...well it took her over and hour to recover. We ended up leaving the hospital at noon. Taylor was soooo good. The Nurses and doctors took great care of her. She has plenty of pain medication. She has a 2 inch incision. It looks creepy to me, but the surgeon says it looks great. Taylor is recovering well. She almost is back to her old self!

Taylor's quick little talk

Hey there mom, and friends, this is a quick little look of Taylor Tay Talking. It was good talking with you today. I hope you get well rested before you come up here. Love you!

as you can see Sydney is actually straddling Taylor. She sometimes completely sits down on her, and for some reason, Taylor doesnt cry. Mystery to me!

They are sweet sisters.


This was a few weeks ago. Im trying to update!

Cute little syd workin' it on the tramp~

Sydney's laughter

Libby and Sydney
These two just hit it off ! They were having so much fun building the blocks and hitting them down....over and over...and over again. :)

At grandma and grandpa Eldredge's house on Sunday.

I absolutely love my life. I love my husband who is so good to me. I love my amazing sweet beautiful little girls. They teach me something new everyday. I was talking with my friend Ember. Her brother had just passed away. We were talking on the phone and she reminded me that yes we take our knowledge back with us but there is one more thing: it is our relationships that we take back with us as well. That is something I have always known but for some reason it made me slow down and think about my life. I get stressed sometimes about things that I just cant always control. But I can control how I spend my time with my kiddies. I just cant put into words how much I love them, I breathe for them, I literally live for them, my life is for them right now. Thats my job. And since I feel that way I really dont want to mess this time with them up by being obsessed with "accomplishing" something that day at their expense. I've been noticing that by me being patient when they wont let me finish ONE task and putting their feelings first before my drive for "success" is really a huge accomplishment/investment for our relationship now and the trust/bond they have with me for the future will be greater. Its just a small daily investment in the emotional bank account that is going to make our relationships rich and fulfiling later on. And I think thats what a successful mom is. When all is said and done the dust will still be there, laundry and all that grime on the windows but my kids....they will be grown up and gone. So Im thinking I better be good to them now so they'll be good to me later. :)

Here is PumpkinLand! But these pictures do not do it justice because my camera died! :) The pumpkin actually turned out to be a jack-o-lantern on the other side, there were farm animals. Bailey came home that day and said, " When I grow up, Im going to have two pets. A turtle and a Bunny." She fell in love with bunnies while we were there.

I tried getting a pic of Bailey but she was in the front of the line and I was in back with the double stroller in the mud. :( Its cool, but no pics of Bailey really. She really was there! I have videos but I my pillow is calling me... I hear it.....I must retire for the remainder of the evening. Take care, thanks for looking. :)

Tomorrow, Tomorow, I love ya Tomorrow youre only a daaaaaayyyy aaaaaaaaaaaaawaayyy!

Tonight Josh and I were so ready for the day to slow down and to quiet down, However it just seemed to not go as hoped. It went better. All three girls just kept talking and talking and singing and yelling it was so odd yet refreshing. Here's a little taste. Josh and I just stared at eachother laughing in awe of how cute this is.

photo journalism at its best.

Hi. so as I visited Newport 36th a few weeks ago I took my camera out into the ocean. I past the Gedi (spell check?) To my suprise A GREAT WHITE was coming right up to bite me in the you know where. This is actual footage of it coming up to taste my hiney. Its was so hungry. Personally I dont blame him, but hey I've got kids so...Luckily I used my sweet water ninja moves to dodge this magnificant creature. turns out I'm in one piece and safe.
In the end it made a great picture.

Two very special people

Hanging out with "Pa" on the hammock on a sunday afternoon. So happy. This is Josh's Dad, as if you couldnt put that together. :) Love you Lloyd! Look how bubbly Bailey is in this pic. I can hardly ever get her to smile for pictures. Oh, but when shes with her grandparents shes all over it!

OOOO Bailey is growing up.

I took this pic when bailey was gettin in the car after school was out. jk I really sketched this. ;) ok, jk again. :) I sure love my sweet bailey. Her first week of school she told me she found a praying mantis, a spider and a moth. The spider eventually ate the moth. It was pretty cool, I actually went into her classroom and saw the bugs she was speaking of and the teacher told me about the spider and the moth.
Bailey seems to enjoy school however she told me there were some mean kids named Anna and Tristan that poked her in the eye. Bailey told the teacher. I asked her, "What did the teacher do?" Bailey answered in a loving sweet voice, "Lets not do that, ok?" Man I guess there is not much you can do as a teacher when it comes to serving justice to an antagonist! (those little beasts, hurting my daughter, Ooo...theyre lucky I wasnt there, those little critters.) :)
***Exciting news for BAILEY: on Monday She is finally fulfilling a LIFE LONG dream of hers (really). Bailey is going to RIDE a school bus to PUMPKIN LAND! At 9am on monday the 5th of October 2008. Hey I must document. She is going to be soo excited. The teacher just called me tonight (sat) and left me the info. :) I love you bailey! Of course I'm going to be there getting pix and following the bus to make sure shes safe. (crazy?)

this is a pic of sydney when she was about 14 months old. I just was foolin around on again. super fun. oh, Nicole, I dont know why when you click on some of my pics they blow up. Sometimes pics do that sometimes they dont. and I have never looked in to knowing why. sorry~ :(. If anyone knows please leave your comment below to help out nicole. :)
