Isabella's 3rd Birthday

Three year olds are oh so fun! She keeps us on our toes and happy as can be. We had a little swim party at our house for her birthday and she had lots of fun! It is fun to see her excitement about things now that she gets it! So here are a few pictures of what she has been up to lately and her party!
Isabella has really been enjoying all of the baskets and things we have in our house now due to Anderson. It cracks me up!
In his car seat peeking out and then hiding when there was a scary part in her movie
She spent a lot of time in this for a couple of days. I had it downstairs so I could give it away and in the mean time she had a blast!
Just enjoying a Popsicle in this handy little bouncer. She luckily is still such a petite little thing that I have no worry of her breaking things!
Just before her first ballet class!

She sang happy birthday to herself 3 times before we could get the candles lit and everyone in the house. it was so funny! She loves cakes and ice cream and birthday parties!!!
All the kiddos in the play pool. They were all so cold. Of course when you count on Arizona to be hot, it wasn't!
Aunt JJ and Uncle Zac got her a scooter and stole the day! She is sooo in love with it and the next morning even said,"ohhh my scooter, good morning scooter!"
Don't worry that I curled her hair for the 2nd time in her life and before I was aware she went right down stairs and dunked herself in the pool! So this is the aftermath
Happy Birthday Isabella! We love you sooooo much!!!!

Isabella turns 3 and Anderson 3 months!

Isabella turned 3 and Anderson is now over 3 months old. Time is sure flying. I took these pictures for Rich for fathers day and let me tell you it was a labor of love. I almost needed to be commited after trying to get a 3 year old and baby to smile at the same time and it never really happened. But we got some cute individual ones.
Isabella-she is a busy body and the life of the party! She has so much excitement about life and
she shows it. Someone in church yesterday that was sitting behind us tapped me on the shoulder, after rich took her out kicking and screaming, and said that girl has a lot of spirit in her little body! She loves to watch her movies, mostly Curious George and Diego. She loves ice cream, ballons, helping mom bake(mostly tasting all of the batters), swimming, the zoo, water and washing her hands with pump soap(as she calls it), taking baths, french fries with ketchup, playing in her play pin, wrestling with daddy and building forts. She has started a little dance class and soccer and likes them both. She loves to run and be tickled, she still doesn't like to eat much, but sleeps well. She won't sleep in her big girl bed yet and insists on sleeping in her little bed which is a play pin since Anderson took her crib. My favorite things she says right now is, mmm delicious, how she says her name, I can't wait!, I am so excited, and whata we gonna do next?. She loves people especially family and cousins!She is definitely a fiesty soul but brings us so much joy and is so patient with us as mommy and daddy learn how to handle each new stage and situation that she throws our way!

Anderson is such a happy baby. No matter how much he has slept or eaten he will always smile at you before he cries. He is sleeping mostly through the night from about 8-5 and most days that feels like mommy's greatest accomplishment! He has rolled over once, teething like crazy, and is wearing 9 month clothing! He is so giggly and thinks everything I do to make him laugh is hilarious! I don't know how I got so lucky to have 2 such happy babies but I won't complain! We sure love this little guy and love all that he has brought to our lives!

These two are getting along well. She thumps him a little to hard on the head sometimes as she says good boy, but overall is sweet to him and tries to help. He loves when she gives him attention and will look for her if he hears her in the room(and sometimes flinch:)
