"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

It has been a good month.

I spend a lot of time holding my baby these days.  In fact, I spend as much time as humanly possible.  I feel like if I'm not holding her or looking at her, then I'm just wasting these precious moments.  After having two other babies, I'm well aware of how quickly the time goes.

Besides holding baby, we also go to (and play) soccer.  Will has turned into a bit of a soccer rock star!  We are mostly so happy that he's playing and not crying on the sidelines, but watching him score goals has been fun, too.  In the past two games he's scored a total of 7 goals- we're going to go broke paying him $1/goal.

Little Paige turned 3 weeks old.  Again- I would really like to find a pause button.

We went to church as a family today!  It felt so great to be there all together as a family.  Paige was a good girl and slept the majority of Sacrament meeting.  We're going to attempt to go to all 3 hours in another week or two.

Last but definitely not least, we have been enjoying the beautiful weather!  Dallas took all the kids on a short and slow four wheeler ride today.  The kids begged for more, but I think they wore Dallas out!  We plan on soaking up every drop of that glorious sun.


  1. It has been a great month! I'm so glad Will is loving soccer. Tyler started a few weeks ago and is over the moon that he gets to play!

  2. I agree with you. Don't you really wish you could just push a pause button and hold it down during the best moments of life? I looked at Eva yesterday, who apparently has grown a ton, and said she needed to stop...just for a few days. But what else do babies do who sleep all the time and never spit up? THEY GROW! FAST!!!
