2 years + Eternity to go

2 years ago today we sealed our marriage with this kiss! What a journey it has been. I'm so blessed to have Sean in my life and Dominic and I were so happy to embrace him into our family circle. He has been such a great husband, father and friend. I'm looking forward to the many many years we have to come! Here are a few picture to share of our journey together!

New Hairdo



So my new haircut / color was WELL NEEDED. I hadn't had anything done to it since August 2nd and we'll just say it was time. This doesn't show it all that well but I got highlights and a cut. So nice, I feel like a new woman! HA (I'm still the same old me I promise).

And this one is just for kicks. I try not to screen the outfits that Dominic wears but on Sundays I usually have to. He doesn't understand that his tie needs to go around the collar of his shirt and he mix-matches his suits. While he was getting his shirt on our cue to go help him was the "Oh, shoot" sound he made. It meant he go to the bottom button hole but didn't have another button to stick it in. Ha! I love him! And no, he didn't go to church like this, call me a bad mom but I put my foot down sometimes.

STEALS OF DEALS!


Jana (and a few other girls) have an amazing idea. They've created this website with baby/mommy specific products at a steal of a deal. No, they're not stealing and reselling babies. They are offering one amazing steal at a time until it's gone, and they sell out fast! At 9am MST every morning, they bring you something new. I'm so excited to see the many steals their sight will have to offer.

Annnnnd.......they will be featuring a few colors of our product this week! We're stoked for what they have going on and it means we got to get rid of old inventory pass the deal on to their customer! Yay Baby Steals!

Sign up for their mailing list to know what they will be featuring on a daily basis. Tomorrow's is one to sign in early for!

Siblings shirts


Ta-Da...here's my brother


Sibling kisses


Tummy Time!


I love that they love each other so much.

I am a Pizza song

This is their FAVORITE song to sing. Don't mind Dominic's sniffling........it drives me crazy and is just a habit....he stopped when there were rewards to stop....but since we've stopped those rewards (because the habit was gone) it started back up again....lol...oh well. I love seeing kids singing though! The first time I heard them sing this they sang it to me while I was helping in class, super pregnant and uber emotional......I had to fight the tears. ITS A SONG ABOUT A PIZZA FOR GOODNESS SAKES....lol But the pizza ends up upside down in a pizza box on its way to be delivered. Enjoy!

Mothers Day Tea Party


They made us Tea Party hats. Of course, due to my LARGE heeed mine wasn't quite a good fit buuut, they were very cute. Notice the new highlights....don't fully judge my hair, It was up but I had to take it out to get my beautiful hat to fit. Dominic felt the need to tell me that the paper flower wasn't real and when I went to smell it he laughed and said it will only smell papery.

All of us kinder-moms


Some of the boys at the tea party...needless to say, I didn't have any tea. The snickerdoodles were good though. I always forget how much I love those cookies and how many of them I would love to eat in one sitting. I refrained and only had one....and a half.

Outfit from Grandma Penny


What?


Playing with the headband ..... soooo biiiiiizy

I'm all dressed up and Perd-y. Cheeeeese!
Thanks Grandma for such a cute outfit! We love to get all dressed up and prance around in it!

Aliens took over our faces


Like a sucker fish. I laughed harder than I'd laughed in months....hopefully you are too otherwise its retarded to even post this.

SO I really just wanted to post Sean's but no fair if i don't post one of me too. More wierd looking than funny but look at that cute baby I'm holding! Ha!
And so Dominic's face doesn't have enough aged/loose skin to make this work (lucky him!) but we had a good laugh trying to get it to work. Needless to say he fell ov er a bunch of times

Giggles

Dominic and Penny make each other laugh all the time. Its great to see them love each other so much. Penny just lights up whenever Dominic enters the room and Dominic will stop playing video games just to make her smile. Thats true love!

We love our kiddos!

Johnny Jump Up



So we hung up the Johnny Jump Up today, and Penny loved it. It took her a few minutes to figure it out, but once we put the music on, it was on like Donkey Kong.

Later Katie, Dominic and I were sitting on the couch watching a movie and I told Dominic that they had a Johnny Jump up at the store just his size and Katie said,"Do they?"

This one's for Spencer

I can still hear Spencer saying "Bhumpb Bhumpb" and Sam, Nephi and I laughing hard enough to pee our pants. For old times.....I think we found a new "clean up" song at our house. (Thanks Lamberts!)

Discovery Museum in the San Francisco Bay

We went to Discovery Museum (yeah! It was free day!) at an old army base near the San Francisco Bridge today. It was unusually warm which we were fine with. Dominic had a blast and I'm sure will sleep well tonight for all the playing he did. They had really neat things like an art room, outdoor playground with a cave, pirate ship-wreck, yacht, spider web, gong, maze, tree trunk staircase, kids toy expert room, SF bridge model. All kinds of great stuff that Dominic just had a blast. We stayed till the absolute last minute and when we got home Dominic asked if we could go back on Monday....I think he had fun.

We're just going in and ready to play! Can't you tell?


This was a pirate ship that Dominic absolutely loved. You could get up above by going up a ladder and it had a wheelhouse and a plank and everything. The SF bridge in the background was pretty amazing!


Dominic said his favorite thing from the whole park was the "gong" and how hard Anam (Sean's cousin) hit it.


This was a whole wall that you could just paint on and then spray with water and squeegee off and start again. It was great and I think he spent 30 minutes here.


So Messy but so fun!

Penny's new trick



So this is officially the third time that Penny rolled over, now she does it all the time. It's amazing how quickly babies learn. She would have gotten it a lot quicker but her foot was stuck in one of the links. I love how excited she gets when she makes it all the way over.

It was just a matter of time



Yeah sooo... I like to play this game with Penny where I hold her over my head and she is Super Baby (I say "Super Baby" in a really high pitched voice). It always gets a smile no matter what mood she is in. Well, this time just as I was lifting her over my head the inevitable happened. However, I refuse to allow this little setback to keep us from having our fun.

My accident


I realize I posted these pics on April 1st, but I really did total my car. It happened on Feb 29th and I was the only one in the car fortunately. We're just going to share one car for now.

Sleep playing

Penny has started to rest her legs up above on the toy bar. She gets her feet up there and then just starts squeeling with glee. Its very cute. Today she fell asleep and perhaps was dreaming about it.....or perhaps she was fighting going to sleep......either way it was quite silly to see her putting her feet up and dozing off at the same time.

She's finally sleeping in her crib during the day and at night. Last night she went a full 4 hours without sleepign with me. Our problem is mostly me, not her. I hate being coherent in the middle of the night and its so much easier just to put her in bed with me........I know I know, I'm a horrible mother. I like 'em snuggly, what can I say?!!


WE WUB HER


all squishy faced and bubbly


She is one of the happiest babies I have ever known.
