I just thought this was funny. Sorry I didn't post it directly to my page. I was having difficulties.

Kids do the funniest things . . Like sleeping through the night!

I will admit, the last month has been hard- adjusting to having two children and sleep deprivation. However, Colton has slept through the night 2 of the last 3 nights, which greatly improves my outlook. It allows me to see great humor in the following incidents:

Lydia is quite behind in her speech. She is beginning to say more, but it is hardly recognizable. Yesterday I was able to understand her though when Colton was crying in his room and she yelled from across the hall, "Quiet!" And that was that.

In family scripture study we were reading about Christ's second coming. We were discussing it afterward with Lydia and I told her that Jesus was coming again- at which point she began looking out the window for Him.

Out With the Old . . .

This is Suzie, our beloved and quirky car. Suzie's passenger side window only rolls down on occasion (and often wont roll back up) Suzie's windshield leaks when it rains and drips onto the seat so you have to put a bag on the seat or your bum will get wet. Suzie makes a high pitch squeeling sound when you drive her and it's windy outside. And the list goes on of all of Suzie's quirks. She has taken us across the country twice and now has 230,000 miles. And finally, we have decided to retire Suzie! A day of joy and sadness. So, we decided to take the plunge and buy . . . a minivan! If you ask me, I am way too young to drive a minivan, but I must say, after owning one for three days, I love it! I have always wanted remote keyless entry and now the doors even slide shut by themselves. What luxury!
And of course, I had to include some pictures of Colton because he grows so quickly and Grandma and Grandpa want to see how he changes. The one where is is awake was taken today, but my personal favorite is the one where he is screaming. Lydia's expression is priceless and shows how I often time feel as a new mother of two, "What's your problem? Why are you crying?"
