Catching Up

We've been plagued by a yucky virus this past week and so I'm way behind in posting pictures the past two weeks. It started with Natalie throwing up all night Saturday and then they both got "the runs" Monday morning and have had it all week. I must have changed a million diapers! I think we're finally getting over it (and fortunately it bypassed Brian and me... so far.) At first, Natalie didn't quite know what was going on... I asked if he she had pooped and she replied, "No Mommy, jus' water." She now calls it "water poops." Probably more than you wanted to know but I thought it was funny. (You can tell what kind of week it's been cooped up with sick kids since I think that's funny... :) On to the pictures. Hope you all are happy and germ-free!

We went out to dinner with our dear friends Jason and Jess (and Carter and Katie)

Brian holding sweet baby Katie. We love you guys! :)
Pretend sleeping...
Mmmmgood... gotta love sweet potatoes! Trying on Daddy's boots.
She made a run for it down the hall... didn't make it too far! :) Having ice cream after dinner with Daddy. Yum!
So happy to be out in the fresh air.

It's so fun to be able to play outside with toys and water in February!
She loves her animals that Grandma gave her for Christmas and lines them up around the house and says all of their names. She really is going through a "language explosion"--full sentences and questions! She surprises me all the time.
Our SuperBowl munchies... the game came on at 1 in the afternoon so we had to hurry home after church (well, Brian was home with the sick kids but I went to teach our 2s and 3s Sunday School class.) But the biggest game is still to come... that's right! We'll be at the PROBOWL next weekend! Look for us on TV! We are so pumped! :)
I went into her room to find her reading to her baby in the rocking chair. What a good mommy.Doesn't he look more like a boy in this picture and not a baby? He's growing up way too fast. I predict you'll see crawling pictures in a few more weeks! Look at our chunk-a-munk!
And I'll leave you with the scene in our house 5 minutes ago! AHHH! :)

Nope, I have not met either one! Little miss Natalie was still in the womb last time I saw you. I am really looking forward to seeing you... hopefully sooner rather than later. Can't wait to hug your kiddos! And you! :)

uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I miss them so much. So so much. I can't even handle how much I miss them. Hurry up and come home already. I love you. I want to come to HI. Please talk to mom and dad. Use your power as a grown up to coerce other grown ups. I'm counting on you jenn jenn.

It's so fun seeing pictures of your kids! They near the same ages as ours it looks like! Aren't kids so much fun?! I think "water poops" is funny too. Maybe that's a parents of little kids thing. Glad you're enjoying our blog. We're having fun sharing our stories. It would be GREAT if you could come visit sometime. We'd love it!
