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!

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.
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.

A rare moment of peace!

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.

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.
