January Update

Here is a little January update!!! This pic was taken on our lot the day we broke ground! Not sure why I look soo serious ha …. I think I just quickly posed for a pic just to document the moment and it was freezing so right after I ran in the car. And by freezing I mean like 50 degrees which is freezing to me lol. The dirt work is officially done and now they are starting to pour concrete!! In just over a month we will start framing eeeeeek!!!! I am so excited. It is weird to imagine our family in the new house.. I can’t picture it quite yet.

I am back from a weekend in Seattle with Rosie! We went to visit my friend and her son who is Ro’s age. Rosie was on a high the entire weekend. She basically didn’t stop smiling and I had the best time with her. I think my favorite part was cuddling her all night. She isn’t a good cosleeper at home, I think because Atticus is in the bed too and she gets really excited to hang out with him so she wants to party. But she snuggled me allll night and it was the best!!!!

I have to say that I missed Atticus more than I have ever missed him! It broke my heart to leave him because on our way to the airport he was SO excited to go fly with mommy. I was crushed to tell him he wasn’t coming 🙁 he had a soccer game and something else we didn’t want him to miss) but he had such a fun time with his dad! They saw Paddington, went to chuck e cheese, had a soccer game and his soccer team pics, went to church, and did lots of bike rides. I love that we both got one on one time.

These are from last week when we went to Disney on Ice!! It was really fun but I do wish it was slightly shorter – the whole thing was 2 hours which I thought was maybe a little too long. I think 90 minutes would have been great. Rosie and Atticus loved the Beauty and the Beast part and the Elsa part! We are really obsessed with Frozen right now… And by we I mean Rosie is. She lovvves Elsa. Which is so funny because Anna is definitely the main character and such a better character!!! I am always like no Anna is cooler! lol but Elsa always wins. Maybe it is that braid…..

Rosie’s Frozen microphone broke and we had just gotten it, grr. She loved it and I loved that it made her want to sing. She would walk around the house singing with it all the time so I am debating if I buy a new one or not.

I love that Atticus is at an age where he can go to plays and movies and whatnot and stay interested the whole time, it is so so fun. That is one thing I lovvved doing growing up was going to plays and different performances. And I still love it. Actually funny story… David got me Hamilton tickets for Christmas for next Sunday but then realized that it is at the same time and day as the SUPER BOWL!!!! Haha ahhh he was so pissed when he put it together so now we are trying to sell them so we can buy other ones for a different day buuut no one is buying them so we will see.

-Atticus is now in Primary at church which is so crazy and feels like kindergarten or something!!! He loves it though! He gave the closing prayer last Sunday and he was so excited.

-David is still obsessed with smoking his meats! He is always using his smoker and making different meals with his meat. It is so cute how much he loves it haha. And on his instagram explore page under “videos you might like..” it is all videos of people cutting meat haha

-Seeing the kids with their new cousins makes me verrrry baby hungry. They are SO sweet and so good with them. They love to hold them and rock them. It is just the sweetest thing ever and makes my heart explode. But I am trying to be patient and wait until end of this year to get pregnant.

-Rosie and I took TWO long naps together in Seattle and both of them we woke up sweaty as can be. I always over do it with the blankets and sweaters.

  5. So many fun moments and memories going on here! I love that you both got to have special one on one time with your kids. My boys sleep better with us when they’re separate too. When they’re together all the want to do is hide under the covers and think no one can see them. Kids are too funny 🙂 Sierra~Beautifully Candid
