Life as a mommy of two

Ok ... so here goes my 1st official blog:

When people said that life with 2 kids would change me in ways that life with 1 kid didn't, they knew what they were talking about. Having Finley and now Berlin has truly completed our family. I never knew that my heart was big enough to love TWO little beings so completely and equally. It's amazing. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful husband and two amazing children.

Finley is now 2 years old and he keeps me very active. We try to have 1 outing a day even if it's just a quick trip to costco or the store. But usually it's to feed the ducks or play on the slides at Sugarhouse park or Liberty park. He's a little gabber who loves Bob the Builder and will often break out into the Bob theme song at the most random moments. He loves to play dress-up with his Bob construction hat, pirate hat, train conductor hat, and footie hat. He's ALL boy - but he's my boy which means he's also a softie who loves to snuggle. We love to sing songs, especiall Do as I'm doing, The Wheels on the Bus, and the ABC's (he knows the song and can recognize all his letters!). And he's a dancer. We were at the zoo and there was bayou music playing near the albino alligator exhibit and he decided to do a combo dance move of Elvis Presley & John Travolta. He definitely didn't learn those moves from me - he's too good.

Berlin is 4 1/2 months old and she is an amazingly calm baby. I didn't think it could get better than Finn cause he was so good, but it does! We are sleeping thru the night (thank heavens) and she only cries if overly tired or hungry. She is so smiley and she loves Loves LOVES her big brother and Bently (our dog). She is almost sitting up and loves to bounce in the doorway jumper or in her exersaucer.

Ryan is still with Beehive Glass. I am officially a stay-at-home mom since I closed the doors on my baby boutique and I LOVE IT!!!! It doesn't get any better than this. We are living in Sugarhouse (Salt Lake city, UT) and we love it here. We love to spend our weekends at Bear Lake in the summer and usually head up a couple times a month. Finley loves being outdoors, especially if there's a soccer ball to kick around. Finley got a bird feeder for father's day and can often be found watching the finches gather each morning and afternoon on our back deck.

All in all our life is pretty good and we love it.
With Yahoo photos shutting it's doors, this BLOG will be the new way to find out what's new in our lives and see pics of our kiddos. We hope you check in with us often. We love you!
