Where does the time go?

My little guys are growing up so fast! It is so crazy how fast time goes. I love being a mom to these two little fellas! Our life is a little crazy but they make it 100 percent worth it.

Nash is now 3 months old. He is the sweetest baby you will ever meet! I feel beyond lucky at how good he is! He is the happiest little guy. He loves when people talk to him. He coo's like crazy. He is starting to laugh. He loves Madden and will watch him all around the room. He loves his hands, especially his thumb (ah!). He goes to bed at 6:30 and will sleep anywhere for 5:30 to 6:30, eat and than go back to sleep for an hour! He hardly ever cries. He loves bath time. I am so happy this little guy came when he did. I know he was meant to be here in our family at this time. His little spirit is amazing. He brings so much joy and love into our home. I thank Heavenly Father daily for knowing that we needed him so soon!

Madden is 16 months old and is as wild as ever! This boy never stops! He is turning into a little boy and no longer my baby. He is starting to talk a whole lot more. He says everything is hot and blows on it. His other famous line is I stuck. He knows most of his animals sounds. His personality has really come out these past few months. He has quite the little sense of humor. He also has quite the little temper. He loves Nash like crazy. He will squat down and talk to him all day long. When I need a minute I will put a little movie on for them and he will sit and hold Nash's hand. He will pet him and say soft all day long. When he is tired he is tired and just wants in his crib. He gathers up his blankets and walks into his room and tries to climb into his crib. He is an early riser. He is a picky eater. He still loves his milk. He loves to watch his shows. Madden keeps our house going and we love it!

One for you, one for me!

We got Arby's for dinner the other night and I looked down to find a few fries stashed away on Nash.  Madden decided to share his dinner with him!

"I stuck"

I am so glad Madden hasn't figured out the right way to climb out of his crib yet! After every nap I hear him yell "I stuck" and I come in to this!

Our super sized mouse!

We live in a big field which means mice are pretty inevitable. I have put a few sticky traps out because the weather is getting colder and I want to be prepared! We keep them out of Maddens reach but apparently he figured out how to get to a few! They were stuck to the bottom of his feet and he was not a fan. He kept telling us they were "stuck" and we couldn't help but laugh! He is by far the cutest thing we have caught on a trap!

Sass Face

Madden has the meanest face! He will give you the biggest glare if he isn't getting his way! Such a stinker! Its a good thing I love him like crazy!

The bumbo

Nash has his first try at the bumbo! He isn't quite ready for it just yet but doesn't he look so big! Such a little stud! Love this boy!

Nash's Blessing

Today was Nash's blessing day. Karson did such an amazing job giving him a name and a blessing. It is days like this that remind me how blessed I truly am. We have such amazing family and friends. Today would of been impossible without them! I am so grateful for the gospel in my life. I am so happy knowing that these little boys are mine forever! Heavenly Father has truly blessed us.

Madden was being a stink (big surpise!) but I just take what I can get!

Snow Canyon 5k.

I have been wanting to do something to get me motivated to work out and loose some baby weight. Well I kind of went a bit over board and signed up for the St.George marathon next year. Gulp! I signed up for the runners series which means you have to run two races in St.George to qualify for the marathon. My sister Jami, my mother in law Connie, and my two sisters in law Kaydee and Kylee all signed up as well. We headed down Friday afternoon to run the snow canyon 5k. I don't know what I was thinking thinking I could run 3 miles without training at all! I literally thought I was having a heart attack. Between the uphills and freezing weather my chest was on fire! I can honestly say my goal was just to finish and that is just what I did. It was a fun little girls getaway! Next time I will train though that is for sure!

Random every day life!

I feel like 99% of my day is trying to keep Madden off Nash. He loves his little brother so much! If he is not loving on Nash he wants to love on me! Which I honestly can't complain about too much but it makes life difficult when I am trying to do dishes! Here are just a few photos I feel like describe a good portion of my day!

Madden is my new leg accessory.

Nash is wondering why no one is laying on him I am sure!
Best little buddies!

Whats wrong with this picture?

Yup. We have a crib in our dinning room. Why you ask. Because of that cute face below!

 If you look real close you can see spots on Maddens face and hands. Last week he had a fever and was super clingy. I thought maybe he was just cutting teeth until he woke up with spots everywhere. We took him in on Saturday to find out he had an ear infection and a lovely little thing called hand mouth and foot. Luckily we got some antibiotics for the ear infection and was told to stay home for hand mouth and ear because its very contagious. Well try keeping a 1 year old away from a newborn. This was our quick fix! Its a little white trash but it works! Luckily we have kept  Nash away and he has not caught it yet.  Unfortunately we spent a few hours with my sister and her kids before we knew he had it and now all her kids have it too. Sorry Jami! I guess its the gift that keeps on giving.

It may look a little white trash but it doesn't look so bad when you look inside the crib!

Rub a dub dub!

One of my favorite things to do is take a bath. I think I have passed that on down to my little guys. They quite enjoy the tub. Madden would stay in there for hours if I let him. Every morning I put both of them in the tub because it is so much easier and faster that way. I had to snap a picture of Nash in his towel and remembered I had one of Madden just like it. I love to compare pictures of them at the same age!

Here is Nash

and here is Madden.

Have I ever said I love my boys because I do! I don't think I could say it enough!

Its snowing!

Madden was quite entertained by the white stuff falling from the sky! He sat and watched it fall for a good hour and laughed. I on the other hand sat and watched it fall and cried. I am not ready for it.

Yes that is our blow up pool still out on the porch. Don't judge. I know its white trash!

Every time I get the camera out Madden comes real close and says cheese. I'm afraid we will be having a lot of pictures like this.

Trick Or Treat!

My little men were cows this Halloween. I loved it! Madden on the other hand not so much. He liked his cow costume but HATED his hood on. Oh well he still looked cute! We went and visited the grandmas and than went up to Santaquin to just a few houses. Madden liked going to the door and getting a treat but he thought he had to eat that treat right away. He seriously loves candy. He is just like his momma! Nash was so good and just hung out in the stroller. After we went and had some goodies at my sister in law Kaydees house. It was a good Halloween!

Bampa with the cows. Nash was fascinated with George!
Such a stinker.

Hated the hood!

Poor Nash! Sadly this is the best picture I got of the two.
Running to the houses.
After he just sat in Kaydees sink and ate an apple. Crazy kid!
