funny things . .

Vance crying about his jacket being zipped up. But, I love his outfit that he picked out.
"Noah-Boa"
Marlee and Elijah
And Elijah, last night.


It's been awhile. Sorry. You'd think I've been busy or something.?! Here are a few funny little things that have been said around the house often this last week. . .

Vance: (anytime he hears Elijah cry, or make any sound) "OH! Terrible! Baby cry"

Noah: (referring to Elijah) "So wittle (little)." "Baby soft."
Noah: (while giving him an actual shower) "Stop Mom, it hurts!"

Marlee: (looking at Elijah) "I think I"m going to have to scream!"
Me: "Why?"
Marlee: "Because Elijah's so cute, I can't stand it!"
And yes, she has screamed for that reason alone.

We have had amazing snow this winter, and of course, most of the storms occur in South Ogden, and Layton. With the exception of just a few, every weekend since the first of December, has had a snow storm. And we average about 4 inches everytime (sometimes 9 inches). But, we haven't had a snow storm in almost a week now. (We are suppose to have one again tomorrow). And the temperature has gotten up to 49 degrees in the last 2 days. Nathan has spring fever. He's itchin' to do some yard work. I wonder if he remembers that in 2 months he'll have awful allergies, and 2 more months after that it'll be almost 100 degrees. :) And then we'll dream of cooler weather. The grass is always greeener.

Elijah's doing great! He sleeps good during the night, doesn't mind the crazy NOISE from his siblings, and eats like a champ. As of yesterday he weighs 7 lbs. 13 oz. He'll be nice a chubby soon enough. Sunday (Feb 10) was his actual due date, kinda funny to think that he's already been here 3 weeks. I'm doing good too. Recovery this time around has been alot easier. Just a couple more weeks, and I can be back to my good ol' self. I can't wait to start exercising again.

I know just how Marlee feels.. I love all the photos on this entry. Thanks for keeping us all up to date with our beautiful grandbabies. We love you and miss you heaps. So glad you're feeling so well.
Can you possibly post a pic of all 4 kids together? I want to nick it, and put it up at work!
