Kyanna starts dance

I have been waiting and waiting for Kyanna to be old enough to start dance! So I am so excited for this. I was never really into dance, except for a few years of clogging, so I don't know a whole lot about it but I am so excited to watch Kyanna dance.

I was a little nervous about this because there are a few things about Kyanna that could make or break her first experience with dance. First, I still kind of feel that she is a little bit on the young side so she may not really get it. Second, Kyanna is well.... stubborn is the word that comes to my mind. If Kyanna doesn't want to dance there would be absolutely no convincing her. Third, she can be very very shy. So I really didn't know what to expect.

Unfortunately I had to work her first day so Brett went with her and the other kids. And she did great!!! She participated, she did the dance steps, and I haven't really been able to get her to take off her tap shoes all weekend! Even the other mothers in the class told Brett that she was doing very good for her first time! I am so excited to go with her on Tuesday. I think that she might really like this! But time will tell. Here are a few pictures of her first day!

I think this pictures is funny. What's up with that little girl on the floor! Typical three year old I guess!

Let the Countdown Begin...

That's right, it's that time of the year again. It's time to dig out all the Utah shirts, blankets, jackets, pom poms (o.k. really just for the kids), and seat cushions cause it's Utah Football time again! Every year I get more and more excited, if you want to know more about my journey to loving football you can read about it here. HOpe for another great year.

I'm Savin My Money

Thats IT! I am saving my money. I am sick and tired of looking at every ones blogs and there amazing photos. Now I am sure that most people have the talent that I lack, but there has got to be something said about having a nice camera and I want one! I am tired of trying to take a picture of the kids and by the time the flash works they are completely out of the picture. I am tired of it looking blurry, and so on. So I am saving my money.

Praying Mantis

Earlier today we were talking about all different kinds of insects, including the Praying Mantis. Tonight on our way to the store, Will asked. How does a Praying Mantis Pray? How do you explain that one!

Jenna's Blessing

We blessed Jenna last Sunday. It was great to see all of our family. Here are some quick pictures from that day. I love this one with all three of them. Seriously how lucky can you get to have all three kids smiling at long enough to get a picture. Amazing!

Also just a quick update with Jenna. I took her to her two month appt. yesterday. Yucky for shots. She actually has been handling it quite well. Yesterday she kind of looked like she didn't feel very good, but today has been much better. She now weighs 9.2lbs which is a 3lbs gain in two months! She went from the 4th percentile to the 14th. She is also 22 inches long which I think is about the 22 percentile and much like Will, she has a big head in the 70 percentile. Many things about Jenna remind me of Will when he was a baby, despite the fact that they look a lot alike. It's been an adjustment to three kids, I won't lie, but I feel that everyday becomes just a little bit easier (not much, but some). I start back at work tomorrow I am a little nervous but also a little excited. It's comforting knowing that I only need to work 3-4 shifts a month and that I am able to leave the kids with Brett.
