Brock Starts Pre-School

We are proud to announce that Brock started pre-school. I found this book called the night before pre-school, so of coarse I read it to him the night before. I don't think he really understood what the book or what I was trying to prepare him up for. In the morning I woke him up and said "today is the day you go to school. Are you excited?" He said under his breath...yeah. We got up, ate breakfast, got dressed and headed off to school. I enrolled him at Candy Cane Lane. It is so close to our house, it's awesome and I heard she is the best! When we pulled up and Brock saw all the other kids, his face lit up. I hugged him, told him to have fun and that I love him, then I walked him to the door. I know it's only 2 hours twice a week, but I felt a little empty when I was walking away. This day marked a new chapter in his life and it's sad to see the previous years come and go. On the bright side, I get to spend one-on-one time with Brody, which has been so fun. When it was time to pick him up. Brody and I got into the car and headed over. When I turned down the street and saw all the kids waiting for their moms, I started to cry. I can't believe it's here already. Brock is growing up way to fast. When he saw our car he got the biggest smile. I will never forget him running up to me with that smile and hugging me so tight. I looked down and I asked him, so how was it? He said, mommy it was so fun, can I go again tomorrow? That made me one proud mama!

We Remember...

Today we had the opportunity to meet at the Lehi Fire Department in REMEMBRANCE of the thousands of lives lost 10 years ago, on 9/11. Even though Randy and I didn't have close friends and family members die that day our hearts go out to the victims and their families. We will never forget where we were when we heard the news. Our lives are forever changed. We are grateful for all those who fought and are still fighting for our country today. Our boys weren't with us 10 years ago, it is weird to think that they will learn about this tragedy in text books at school. Hopefully they will love our country as we do. We are so proud of this country we live in. God Bless America!

Happy 9 Months Brody

Brody is 9 months old today. He is finally teething! He is getting his 2 bottom teeth at the same time. He is not a happy camper, but he is still the cutest thing. He loves to eat! This kid could eat all day if I let him. We don't know where he is putting all the food (maybe in his thighs? haha) . He is crawling everywhere and stands by himself until he realizes no one is holding him, then he will plop on his bottom. Last but not least he said his first word.....Dada. Randy is so thrilled! Brody's personality is really coming through this last month. He is a go getter. What ever he wants and is focused on, he will not give up until he has it. He is starting to really jabber, he wants to be heard. He hates when I leave the room...He may be a mama's boy:) Which I don't mind. He is so much fun to have in our family. We are so blessed. We love our little Brody!
