9 years!

I can't believe it has been 9 years.  So much has happened over the past nine years.  I thought I loved him so much the day we got married, but that love has grown and I love him so much more today.  Can't wait to see what the next nine years brings us!

We kept it pretty low key since we just had Cambry a month before; we didn't want to leave for too long!  We went to the Harvest at Thanksgiving Point for dinner and Christina and Danny were kind enough to watch the kids.  It was nice to get out just the two of us.

Love him so much!

Christmas 2012

This was our first year celebrating Christmas on our own.  I had planned to decorate the week after Thanksgiving before the baby came, but obviously that didn't go as planned.  Mike bought us a new tree (our old one was pretty small and didn't look good in our new house).

Izzy loved putting ornaments on the tree. 

The tree almost complete. 

We weren't sure what to do for Christmas Eve since it was our first time on our own.  We decided to go look at Christmas lights and then open a few presents.  Izzy was so excited because one of the presents were horses from Unlce Matt.  She insisted on sleeping with them.  She was so excited going to be for Santa to come down the chimney with more presents.  She was convinced every present would have horses in it!

She loved unwrapping all the gifts.

Izzy going to town on all the gifts.  She was spoiled by her aunts, uncles, and grandparents.  She got lots of fun toys!

Mike got me diamond earrings!  I was super excited!!

Christmas Morning

Not sure how they ended up with so many toys!

The mess!

That afternoon we had a yummy ham dinner with Danny and Derdle.  

We even pulled out the china.

Cambry's first Christmas.  We love her so much!  It was so weird during November having her around;  I didn't expect her to be here in Nov!

Izzy kissing daddy and of course he loved it!
At this time of year, we reflect back on all we have (which we should do all year long) and feel extremely blessed! We are so lucky to have each other and two beautiful girls!

Let it Snow

Last year we hardly got any snow.  I bought Izzy a snowsuit, boots, and everything she needed to stay warm.  Then it never snowed.  I didn't want to make the same mistake this year so I didn't buy her any snow gear.  Of course, we have had tons of snow this year.  Luckily, her stuff from last year still fits, barely. 

We got tons of snow over Christmas break.  Mike pulled Izzy and the neighbor kids on the tube behind the 4-wheeler.
I'm not sure who had more fun Mike or the kids.
Every morning the kids from across the street were at our front door asking if Mike could pull them on the 4-wheeler.
Izzy loved playing in the snow with Daddy and building a snowman.

Working on the snowman!

Cambry is One Month

I can't believe this girl is one month old!  It seems like she should only be 2 weeks; I still have in my mind that she was born in Dec. (her scheduled induction was Dec. 4).  The fact she came in Nov throws me off.  She weighs about 11 pounds and I didn't measure her so I have no idea her length. She wears 0-3 month clothes and can still squeeze into a few newborn pjs. 
She is such a great baby.  She eats well, sleeps well and that's about all she does.  At night she sleeps 3-4 hours at a time occasionally 5 hour stretches.  

Such a cutie! The older she gets the more she reminds me of Izzy as a baby. 

Izzy isn't really interested in holding her so here is a picture sitting by her.

Two weeks

I can't believe she is two weeks old!  Where does the time go?!  So far she has been a great baby; she eats, sleeps, and poops.  She sleeps pretty well at night.  She sleeps in her own crib in her own room (I can't have babies sleep in my room; every noise wakes me up) for about 3 hour stretches.  

At her 2 week appointment; she weighed 7 pounds 10 ounces; already passed her birth weight. 

She loves to sleep in the cocoon.  It is a stroller attachment, but we have it in the house and she naps in it all the time.  Love this little girl!
