Here are a few pictures of Emma and Kaitlyn we took yesterday. We couldn't get Kaitlyn to smile for any of them, but Emma sure didn't hold back any smiles.

Yesterday afternoon we were blessed with a beautiful little baby girl. She wasn't sure if she wanted to come into this world head first or feet first, so she chose both. She definitely gets that indecisiveness from her dad. Because of how she was positioned, the Dr decided to perform a c-section. Everything went very well and April will be recovering in the hospital for the next few days. Kaitlyn was 6 lbs, 12 oz and 21 inches long. She is a long and skinny little girl with blue eyes, light brown hair, and two big dimples. She is a MUCH better sleeper than Emma her first night and only woke up three times her first night in this world. She has been eating very well and just loves to cuddle in your arms.
She was born three weeks early due to a condition April had this pregnancy called polyhydraminos (excess amniotic fluid). April looks great and didn't even look pregnant until she turned sideways and had this huge belly sticking out. Here are a few pictures I took and will try and post more later.

Okay, here we are again.Life has been crazy.The pictures of Emma are of her toothy grin she gives us and of her independence. When we took her to the park,she wanted to swing by herself and would only let us push. Emma will be 17months old this week and she is a firecracker. She says lots of words as well as saying uh-huh whenever she wants to say yes to something and shaking her head to say no. We are just glad that is a word she is not saying. She runs just about everywhere and is transitioning well to being in Bullhead. We took her to the ultrasound this week and she kept signing all done during the ultrasound. I don't know if she is as excited as we are about her new little sister. She signs now a lot of things, which has cut down tremendously on meltdowns since she can communicate with her words and signs. It has helped her vocabulary too. She does however like to pull my mom's yorkies's hair and no matter how many times she is told not to do it,she just gives a toothy grin and keeps doing it. I will post some more photos of that cute toothy grin tomorrow. She is sure the joy of our lives. Rod is busy taking classes for application to dental school this summer and we are both busy chasing our toddler. Maybe we will post more regularly now,but time will tell.
Halloween in AZ
This is the first picture I could find of us. Really it is Christmas now. Rod and I had fun planning this Halloween party. I even thought it would be a good time to make costumes ( I will think more about that next time).
Europe up till now
We spent a month this summer in Europe and it was so fun!! Then we packed up and moved from Bullhead City to Tempe, AZ. Roderick is enjoying his time finishing his Economics degree at ASU ( although finals stink). I am being a dental hygienist in Scottsdale, which is very fun! I love the people I work with and it keeps me busy. We are getting ready to head up to Utah next week for our Christmas break and can't wait. This blogging stuff is fun!
