Jordyn turned 1

 I wish pregnancy flew by as fast as their first year does! It has been a great year especially the last few months of getting to know her personality. The similarities between Jordyn and Hayden make me a little nervous for the next few years. I have started to get little glimpses of the two of them being playmates and I have to say I love seeing them laugh together. She is starting to gain some independence and so all the bitter sweet moments of realizing she is not my little baby anymore begin!

9 months

I swear Jordyn is growing up faster than Hayden. She has proven to like constant motion just like Hayden but   definitely has a sweeter side to her, we have more cuddly moments. She is determined to figure out how to walk so far she can stand on her own for a while and cruise around the furniture. She is finally eating solid foods which means she is sleeping through the night again Yeah! She is jabbering all the time and thanks to Hayden has learned how to scream for attention. I just love looking at this baby girl and did not expect loving watching her grow just as much as I did with Hayden if not more, I know how quickly they change now.     
 Jordyn is my new little helper she follows me where ever I go and wants to be a part of what I'm doing.

I love to see 4 generations all together, this is my dad's mom and my mother.
 These are my sisters little girls who Hayden and Jordyn love to play with.

Hayden, keeping my life a constant adventure

 If he's not laughing he's crying. He has decided that life is meant to be explored even if some of things he explores makes mom mad. He loves to build things and hiding is still his favorite game. No matter how busy he may get he will stop what he is doing yell mom and give me a big hug, which I like to think is his way of saying I love you. He has been a bit of a late talker but we are finally moving on to phrases and sentences and things are much smoother when we can communicate. I have loved hearing his little voice say "come on mom lets go" his favorite phrase since I am never up to speed.

A rare moment of peace!

our holiday fun

We enjoyed as much time outside as we could before the snow came but we certainly find ways to enjoy the snow too. We live in a very fun neighborhood with a lot of young couples and children, there is almost always someone for Hayden to play with. Hayden is starting to have second thoughts about Jordyn now that she is big enough to move around and play with toys. Hopefully soon he will learn that she can be fun to play with.   

I thought Jordyn might be afraid of Santa but it was him that was afraid she would eat his beard

Christmas was fun we had plenty to do this season and I had a lot of fun decorating my house this year and look forward to getting to add to it each year. We had Christmas and Chris's Hayden had more toys than he knew what to do with and all Jordyn wanted was the paper and ribbon.

The end of summer

So I ran my first race and I have to say I love running.   As much as I love my kids it's my one time during the day to myself and yet I still don't go as much as I should. I did a marathon relay which is five people so a little over 5 miles each. It was fun running with a team and now I am getting ready for the Wasatch back Ragnar relay which is a 12 person team and 188 miles I think I have like 18 miles Yikes! Good thing it's not till June.  

That's Hayden running after me in the pink I felt kind of bad I couldn't stop but he was happy to see me at the finish line.

Jordyn is really starting to keep my hands full and getting really active. It makes me nervous because I already have one child that never stops moving and I know how exhausting it is. On the bright side I think they will have a lot of fun together! (If I can keep them safe and alive that is)  

I think the clean up was to much fun for him for it to count as a punishment.

4 Months old

Jordyn is 4 months already and changing everyday. She is very social, loves to smile and is just really starting
to laugh and giggle. She still saves her best laughs for Hayden, she thinks he is pretty interesting. As you can see I am still loving dressing up my little girl and she is a good sport.
At her 4 month app. she weighed 14.8 pounds and was 25 in. and she really hates getting her shots. (So do I) I had to get the new TDP and I forgot how sore it can make your arm it made me understand why she was so fussy the next day.

What we have been up to

We have been very busy for the last couple months, well at least for me I like to keep my life simple, but we have had a lot of fun. Baby Jordyn is three months now and she has just been a dream of a baby. She is still a great sleeper and loves to do her baby talking. The only real problem we have run into is she won't take a bottle so if anyone has suggestions I would love to hear them, I would like to make it back to the temple before she is a year old.
As you can see this is her new favorite toy and even Hayden likes to share it with her!

 Hayden continues to do something every day that makes me laugh such as his new trick of trying on clothes, spraying him self in the face with the hose (hence the funny hair) and coming up with words  that don't really sound they should such as "doky" which means water (it started as drink).


Some of our family came up to celebrate the 4th of July with us. It is a really big deal in our little town, they have the Dodge National Rodeo that comes through here. It was fun to get to share out little town with our families.
