April 10th

Audrey officially ventured out to church for the first time a few weeks ago.  And since everyone agreed to wear their matching dresses we captured a few cute pictures of all 4.  I think this might be one of the first times we've caught them all together!

Preparations for the day...

We're all ready and happy!

Weekend with the Cousins

April 2nd-3rd

Hanging out at Grammy & Grandpa's house with all the cousins is pretty fun!

Alice, Chloe & Nicole (Dean's kids)

My parents moved into their new home about 3 months ago.
We're happily adjusting to all the many benefits of being surrounded by family!
We spent Conference weekend over there with my brother Dean's family.

There's a Barbie and Lego playland going on here
Down at the creek behind their house
The lego boat race in the icey creek water!

Audrey was kind enough to help several people get a good nap!
It's her special skill right now.

And I had a few lazy minutes to capture my little babe.

Amateur Photo Op

March 31st

We have a sudden and new fascination with photography in our house.  It has increased exponentially since the day Audrey was born...and not just because Audrey is such a cutie!

We bought a new and awesome camera.  It arrived the day before she was born.  We were literally figuring out how to use it while I was in labor (after the epidural kicked in!)

One day I had fun capturing 3 of my sweet girls...

Sanity Sewing

March 24th

I don't know about your house, but things get pretty intense around her for the month or so after a new baby shows up.  We have roller coasters of emotions and everyone seems to have to re-learn how to get along as they fight for any type of attention they can get!

One night, out of desperation to have some peace, Ryan decided to proactively get everyone busy with a sewing project.  Grandma happened to come visit that night and helped make it all a success.

They all had fun sewing their own pillow.  And for an hour or so there was peace and happy giggles!

kids being kids

It cracks me up when kids contort their bodies and yet make it look comfortable!
Wouldn't it be great to be a kid again?


It seems like Alice doubled in size over night!
Not my baby anymore!

Alice has adjusted well to being a big sister.  She loves Audrey and is so gentle and kind to her.  I love that she was trying to share her toys with Audrey for this photo shoot!  It just takes so long to grow them into playmates!!!
