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!

Getting bigger...and cuter!

Easton is like a little sponge these days. He is at such a fun age and we could seriously watch him for hours without getting bored.

We went to the doctor for his 15 month check-up.....although he is actually 16 months. He weighed in at 21.9 pounds (15 %) and is 31 inches tall 45%. He hasn't gained much weight since his 12 month check-up, but he's been a pretty picky eater lately. I'm sure he will make up for it soon.

He is so talkative.....of course it is mostly gibberish still. He will talk to anybody that will listen and he knows exactly what he is saying. Most of the time, he will end his sentence with a 'HUH?' We just pretend like we understand. He is saying a lot of new words though. Here are some of them (some of them may be repeats):
  • Cow
  • Drink
  • Taste (Tase)
  • No
  • Cut
  • Teeth
  • Brush
  • Tickle
  • Apple (Ah-po)
  • Ball  (Bah)
  • Cracker (acker)
  • Bug (Buh)
  • Car (Kah)
  • Meow! (Mau)
  • Moo!
  • Ow!!!!
  • Hot (ot)
  • Off ( Ah)
  • On
  • Stinky feet
  • Eyes ( Eye)
  • Ice ( I )
  • Binky
  • Beasty
  • Duck (Guck)
  • Baby

Easton hates his car seat, but loves going 'Bye-Bye'. He tells us no if we ask him is he is ready for bed. He really wants to go to nursery, but he isn't old enough. I have been going in with him for the past few weeks though, just because it's either that or pace the halls. He will have no problem staying there by himself and that makes me happy. He likes reading books by himself in his crib. The first thing he does when he wakes up is searches for a drink--most of the time he finds a spray bottle filled with water and that suffices him. He loves stacking toys, pushing buttons, and opening & closing things. We often catch him playing in the toilet (WHO LEFT THE BATHROOM DOOR OPEN!!!) and he thinks the plunger is a fantastic toy. One time he found a cup and dipped it in the toilet....and drank the water. Don't worry, it's been a few weeks and he is ok....I think the water was clean.....well as clean as toilet water can be.

He cut 4 new teeth....both molars basically at the same time. It was rough for a few days there. He takes teething pretty hard. He still doesn't eat very well. Just the past few days he has started getting better. He is ALWAYS pushing his little chair up to the counter so he can reach things. Especially while I am cooking he can sample the ingredients. I secretly love it and think it is the cutest thing. Some of his favorite things to eat are: Banana's, Apples, Cookies, Broccoli, Mac & Cheese, & any kind of treats. He doesn't like meat.


And of course he doesn't sit still for pictures so this is the best I got!
Easton drinks from a cup like a pro and he uses forks & spoons pretty well. He understands simple commands (sounds like I am talking about a dog) such as 'Throw it away' and 'Get a diaper'. We cut about a half inch off his hair every month!!! He is completely spoiled by all of us and knows that we will do anything for him.
