This is supposed to be a cute video, I'm still working on it. It won't load and I have tried several times. It's of Olivia and this noise she makes when she is asleep. I'm not sure if it's snoring, or just talking in her sleep :) I guess maybe it's both! She doesn't really do it that often any more, but from when she was born she did it almost every time she slept. It's super cute and I wanted to share it, but I guess it's not going to happen.

Sweet and sour

This boy is such a cutie! He is my most challenging, but at times he is the sweetest. He gives the best hugs and kisses! And sometimes he gives too much love :) He definately has a temper and you can really make him mad pretty easy. But he's really a good boy and I need to remind myself of that often :) I just want this picture on here to help me remember that he's not a stinker all the time! LOL

Earth Angel

2 months old already!

I have been so lucky! This baby really is an angel! She sleeps a lot! And all she wants to do when she is awake is eat, or smile at me :) She does have her moments of crying, but it's usually because of something mommy ate that she shouldn't have. I am truly so blessed with this sweet girl. I love her to pieces!

Hard times...

My Dad doing what he loved.

This was a gift from my Uncle and Aunt, it's a tree ornament(obviously) but it spins around and on the back this is what it says,

God saw him getting tired,
A cure not meant to be
So He wrapped His arms around him
And whispered "Come with me"
makes me cry every time I read it

Don't they just look so in love?

Today would have been my Dad's birthday. He would have been 63. It will be a rough day today. I do have a lot of good memories, and that will help me through. But it's still pretty fresh and I miss him a lot. I have good and bad days, usually it's a song that helps trigger the memories, but mostly I just can't let my mind wander too much. It's just hard to think about, I am really sad that my Dad is gone, but it breaks my heart when I think about my Mom. I know my Dad is in a better place and that he's not suffering anymore, so that's a comfort. But my Mom is struggling every day and I know it will be hard for her. I wish there was more that I could do.

Happy Birthday Dad! I miss you so much!!

Blessings from Heaven

Here she is modeling her dress.

Look at the detail on the skirt.

It's beautiful!

Half smile :)

She's plum tuckered out!

We blessed Olivia yesterday because my in laws had come to visit. It was a beautiful day, though a little cold. She was an angel, she didn't cry at all during the blessing, and she was wide awake when Daddy held her up for all to see. Grandma Stahl had to miss it, since she had already come to visit when the baby was born. So these are for you Grandma!

I also have more to update, but that will have to come later.
