I know it has been awhile since I have posted, sorry. We have been up to a whole lot of nothing. It is just easier to stay home and hang out with our kids. Haley is sure growing up fast. I bet she has gained a couple pounds this last week. Everyone who sees her says that she has chunked up a little bit. I must be feeding her whipping cream. ;) She is a good baby. She sure likes to be held all the time. Taylor is also growing up too fast. She is getting so smart. She can almost count to ten all by herself and she is learning her colors right now.

Today we decided to go to Thanksgiving Point and show Taylor the animals there. At first she was pretty scared but then she warmed up. Today there were having a wool festival or something, so they were shearing all the sheep. It was pretty fun to watch. Taylor also rode the horses. She was Terrified at first, but after a minute she warmed up and liked it. The second time she rode them she didn't want to get off. It was a fun day!!

Bird's Nest

So the other day I noticed some grass and twigs on my front porch. I didn't think anything of it. Then Kevin went out to water our flowers the other night and noticed that a bird was building a nest on my wreath on the front door. He said that he could tell the bird was mad that he was out there. The bird kept trying to get stuff and then would fly up on the roof and wait for Kevin to move. This bird built this nest in less than two days. I think that is totally amazing. The other night I was over and my friends, Breanne's house and she was showing us that a bird built a nest in her wreath. I told her that I thought it was neat and that she should keep it. Isn't that crazy that this happened to both of us in the same neighborhood. And this happened to that Nicea on Good Things Utah, I heard her talking about it one day and she took it down and it rebuilt its nest again, so she finally had to take her wreath down. Well now that it is on my front door I don't really know how I feel about it. Mostly because there is now going to be bird poop all over my porch and Kevin thinks that it is going to fly in our house when we open the door. But I also think it is kind of neat. Eric says that it means good luck, because when you get one in your Christmas tree, that is what it means. So, I can't decide what to do. Should I take it down, with the chance that the bird will build again, or leave it up and let the bird lay its eggs there. My mom says they are only in there maybe a couple of weeks, so it really wouldn't be that bad. So what do you think...should it stay or should it go?

Welcome Home, Haley

We are officially home. It is so nice to be home and start our life with our new little girl. We came home Thursday morning. We could of left the hospital at like 9:00, but we still didn't have a name for this little girl. I was having major anxiety over it. We just didn't know which name suited her best. I started filling out the paper work and when I was done I told Kevin to just pick one, and we couldn't. So then I said, lets just not do any of those names and start over and I got the look of death from him. So after about two hours of sitting there thinking, we decided to name her Haley. I was still pretty nervous, but now the more I am with her, I think it is fitting. She has been such a good baby. I forgot how much babies just eat and sleep, mostly sleep. It seems like that is all she does. We have also forgotten how small babies are, but now that we have her Taylor seems like a giant. It is weird to change her diaper because she feels so big to us. She is also very heavy. Haley has been sleeping so good at night. I almost don't even want to say it, because I know that everyone will be mad at me, but the night before last she slept for six and a half hours and I had to wake her up because I was getting nervous and then last night I fed her at 1:30 and then Kevin woke her up at ten to nine, and it took some time to wake her up. So I don't know if this is how she is, or we just had a couple of good nights. Taylor is really liking her. She always wants to see her and she always says hi to her and gives her kisses. It is so fun to watch her interact with Haley. So far it hasn't been all that bad having to kids, but Kevin has been here the whole time, so we will see how tomorrow goes when he goes back to work. I tired to post some pictures, but it isn't letting me, so I will have to try again later.
