"If you know someone who has lost a child or anybody who's important to them, and you're afraid to mention them because you think you might make them sad by reminding them that they died, they didn't forget they died. You're not reminding them. What you're reminding them of is that you remembered that they lived, and that's a great, great gift" - Elizabeth Edwards

"The deep hurt is the mirror image of the deep joy that still awaits you." - Bruce C. Hafen

Yesterday, March 23rd it was exactly one year since I found out I was pregnant with this cutie!

Tyler 4 months

 

Tyler had his 4 month check up yesterday.

Stats:

Weight: 15 lbs 7 oz (50%)

Height: 25.5 inches (75%)

He is doing great! It was so sad to watch him get shots. Poor little guy was crying but calmed down pretty fast after once he started sucking on his paci. Tyler loves to play in his jumperoo and can sit there for a long time. He smiles so much and gets so excited when he recognizes people! He still wakes up a lot at night but takes good naps during the day. He loves to sit in the stroller when we go on walks. He also likes to swing in the backyard. I love to snuggle and hold him close. We love our Tyler and its so fun to watch him grow!

Little Savvy

Oh little Savannah. She is sooooo busy all the time and is not a very good listener right now. Some of the things she has done lately is to color all over the mantel with a pencil, dip toothbrushes in the toilet, get water in a cup from the toilet. She tries to run away from us any time she can. She throws food all the time and loves to empty her dresser. She climbs the shelves in the pantry and puts dirt in her hair when she is outside. She colors her whole body with markers. Our little girl definitely keeps us on our toes. We LOVE her!!

Tune Shirts

The company Eric works for gave us some shirts for the kids, so we decided to take some pictures!

Meet Luna

We got a hamster for the kids the other day. Nicci named her Luna. It’s been fun for them to sit and watch her run around in her cage. She is cute.

Nicci got a hair cut last week.

 

I took the kids to the dentist. All their teeth look good!

Love his eyes

 

The kids ride their bikes for hours with their neighbor friends every night. It’s hard to get them inside for dinner and then later for bed. I’m so happy a family with two kids moved in two houses down last year. The kids have so much fun with them!

Eric’s Utah Trip

Eric had the opportunity to go to SLC last week for a work conference (Ng-conf).  He had a lot of fun and learned lots of nerdy things. Here are some pictures of his time. We missed him when he was gone and was happy when he came back!
