How to jump in the 23 months

Bob is for sure my water baby! He has no fear of the water and loves to jump right in. If we go to my mom's he thinks we get to swim. In fact if you say "Bob want to go to Nana's?" He says "swimming" On Saturday he kept jumping in so I thought I would get picture so you can all enjoy his cuteness!! Look at that smile
I love the tucked in legs and arms out

close your eyes before you enter the water

Arms still out

BIG splash!!!
And that is how my 23month old jumps in the pool!!
OH and an update on Jordan and school: He told me that his 1st day of school was the BEST day of his life!! So I guess he loves it. We still miss him....

1st day of school!

Well my friends my 1st baby is now in Kindergarten. He has been waiting a long time and I had to let him go. Which was easier then I thought. I cried more at kinder round-up and meeting his teacher then I did today. But today my heart hurt more and I sure do miss him. I know he is going to be just fine and LOVE school.
When I 1st found out I was pregnant Kindergarten seems so far away I would say "Jordan starts school and two weeks later the baby comes." It felt like it would take forever for that to happen and I could keep Jordan my baby for a long time BUT it when by SUPER FAST and now the baby will be here soon. CRAZY.
Enjoy pictures from our morning Breakfast of homemade waffles and cinnamon rolls with a glass of chocolate milk!
Ready to go!

Walking to school

Okay maybe RUNNING is more like it

Waiting at the wall to go in. (At this point I had to kiss him and say goodbye because my heart was breaking)
After he went inside I walked over to Will and said "This just stinks, I miss my boy!" He felt the same way. I can't wait to pick him up and hear all about his 1st day......
I will fill you all in:)

When did he get so big...

Jordan is starting Kindergarten in just a few days (4 days) and I feel like he is still to little to be going. But he is ready and excited. We got to meet his teacher today and he likes her and so do I. I had to hold back tears just talking to her so Monday shall be fun! She told me of all kinds of fun things she has planned and she even said the other kids and I can go on all the field trips! So 1st up is the pumpkin patch in Oct, I can't wait.
While I am sad to see my baby growing up I am excited for him to get to do new things. I just feel like it went by too fast. I never understood what people were saying when Jordan was 1st born but now I do and I'm not sure I like it.
Here are some picture of me and my baby. (at least how I still picture him in my mind)
I love his sweet face in this one! (This is my all time favorite of us)
I like the no hair and no smile (this is Will's favorite)

OH and the belly I love him!!
Okay I am tearing up writing this (being pregnant make me a mess, who am I kidding I'm always a mess)
I'll post 1st day of school pictures on Monday!!

Jordan slept till 9:30 this morning and since I had to go to church alone I thought well I'll just go to my In-laws ward. Well I cried the WHOLE time! Every thing was meant for me!
But a talk was given and it was on "what is the greatest worth" The talk was by Sister Smith (she is in my ward) so I was excited to see her in this ward. She said the greatest worth on the earth is you! Because of what the Savior gave for you!
It totally touched my heart and made me realize how once again how important I am. If there was only me the Savior still would have suffered and died for me because I AM important! This is something I don't think women hear enough. In fact I don't think people in general hear it enough. No matter what you do or did you are important and loved!! And you are the greatest worth on the earth to our Heavenly Father and the Savior!
I love this message and I need to tell it to my children often so they know that when they make mistakes (because we all will and do) that they are loved above everything else in this life!

I am so thankful that my sweet baby boy slept in today. It is weird that he did because from birth he has needed very little sleep so I knew he was tried. We did have a long day yesterday. I am grateful to my Heavenly Father for giving me the Savior. For Jesus and his atonement. Without which I would be nothing and have nothing. For the love I feel everyday from Jesus and Heavenly Father by looking at my Children and Husband. I am excited to get a new baby fresh from Heaven! I love looking in the eyes of a new baby and feeling the love of my Heavenly Father. I love my husband and I am grateful for all the hard work he does for our family! I can't wait to be a family of 6!!

8 Years!!!

Look at the cute family we made in just 8 years! Soon baby #4 will be in the picture.
We were so young when we 1st started dating 17 and 16. And when we got married 21 and 20 (young but I love it!) I find new things to love about Will every year. It's exciting! The time goes by so fast when you are married to your best friend and it makes life wonderful too! It makes all life's trials since a little easier knowing you have someone to help you make it past each and everyone. That you will never be lonely (in fact that is our song "You will never be Lonely" by Andy Griggs)

Here are 8 things that make me smile when thinking about Will

1. His love for his children! He told me just last night that when Jordan went to pre-school he totally cried (I didn't know that) So he is sure Kindergartner is going to be hard for him to let him go.

2. His passion for whatever he is doing. His business, Church calling or even perfecting his NSYNC dance moves:)

3. His love for his Heavenly Father and Jesus. He makes sure scriptures are read every morning and night along with prayer.

4. His love for Disneyland. I love Disney and when we got married was sad that he never wanted to go. I told him for our 5 year anniversary and now he is hooked! He loves it and would go all the time! (if we were rich) It was so fun to see him riding the kiddie rides and laughing with the kids!

5. His made up words to songs he *thinks* he knows. It's so funny to hear what he thinks the word are

6.He tells me I am beautiful even when I am HUGE pregnant. He tells me I am growing his baby and to him I will always be pretty no matter what I think. He will then kiss me sweetly and let me continue to rant:)

7. That he likes girly movies (even if he protest he ends up liking it)

8. That he loves me not matter what. He has to put up with a lot when I am pregnant and starting my seizure meds and I am thankful that he loves me! He still gives crappy foot rubs but I love his kisses! And if I am upset his arms are always open and ready for me to cry on him!
