Easton is the cutest little boy we know! He rightfully earned the nickname 'BEASTY' when he was a baby and it has stuck with him. He is such a sweet little mommy's boy and we are ALL at his Beck and call. Easton loves cars, snacks, and playing outside. He is talking up a storm and it seems like he learns something new every single day. He is at such a fun age. We LOVE LOVE LOVE this little guy!


Ainslee is the baby and she just turned ONE!! This child is a handful!!! She hasn't quite grown out of the difficult phase.....that she has been in since she was born, but we still find ways to find her sweet side! Hearing her baby giggles and watching her discover & learn new things make all the whininess......just a little easier to deal with. Aaaahhh, we love this Ainslee Girl!!


Oh our cute little Avery! With her blue eyes & blonde hair, she is one of the cutest 4 year olds around!! This girl is stubborn! She definitely keeps us on our toes. She is quite unpredictable, which makes for a lot of laughs! Avery is our TREAT-FREAK! We can always guess what is on her mind. My favorite thing about Avery is her smiles. She always has one for us no matter what and that makes everyones day just a little better. She attends preschool and says she doesn't like it, but secretly we know she does ;). We are so lucky to have this cute girl in our family! We can't get enough of her.

Kobe is our first child, born in 2004. He was 4 months early and weighed a whopping 1 lb. 4 oz.! We got to be with Kobe for 4 wonderful weeks. I feel so blessed to have been chosen to raise one of God's perfect children. We love him and thank Heavenly Father everyday that he is part of our family. We have a treasure in heaven.

Quinnie just turned 6! She is growing faster than we can keep up with! She loves going to first grade and is doing really well! She picks up on things very quickly and LOVES learning. She's seriously a sponge. Her favorite thing to do is write notes and draw pictures for her friends & family. You should see our continual stack of papers. Quinnlyn is creative & spunky & totally independant. We love her like crazy!

Every so often...........

amongst all the CRYING & FUSSING............

we get one of these:

(Smiling since 5 weeks)

It's happening a lot more often these days & it makes the 4 nightly wakings a tiny bit worth it!!!

He also laughed for the first time yesterday.....but we have yet to catch that on camera.

And GOOD NEWS!!!! The past 2 days have been HEAVENLY!!! Easton has been a happy little guy (for the most part). We have actually been able to put him down for a bit without him crying.

Please, please, please let this continue!!!

Despite feeling a bit sorry for myself and what is ahead of me in November, our short little conversation on Tuesday made me think....and yes, I DID have a crier. It was Cami. The good thing is that, either I learned to block it out or it stopped. I can only remember the incessant crying for the first 6-8 weeks. Sure she didn't sleep through the night until she was done nursing but that was something I was willing to put up with so long as she stopped crying throughout the day.

so....maybe you'll get lucky and things will start to really settle down about now. And if they don't, call me.

I cannot wait to hold this cutie!
I hope he'll smile and laugh for me. Sorry to hear he isn't letting you sleep much . . . how are the girls doing? and you?

He is absolutely adorable! CUTE little smile! Isnt it so precious?! Did you ever find out if its a reflux collic for sure? Whether you have or not, let me tell you that my sister cried ALL of the time because she was collicy.

My parents took her to the Chiropractor. He held her upside down by her feet and adjusted her back and the crying completely STOPPED! And she had collic extremely bad. Guess when babies are being born they squeeze so tight to be born that sometime their spines get out of wack.

So taking him to the chiropractor is just a suggestion if that is a problem your cutie has.

Anyway he is adorable and I hope too that he lets you get the rest that you need. :)

He is adorable! But then again... I can't hear his cries, LOL!
But, I know, I've had a crier too. It gets so much better...

Such a cutie! That smile is adorable! I think he looks a lot like Brett.

He is so cute. Those smiles are adorable! Ammon cried all the time too. It's so hard, but they really do out-grow it. I remember someone telling me that it usually lasts only about 12 weeks and that felt like an eternity. But before you know it he'll out grow it. Good luck!

Those smiles can erase a WHOLE lot and they come just in the nick of time!!! Glad he's doing better and hope he keeps it up for ya!! 6ish weeks has seemed to be the magic age for me.
