Summer...I didn't capture much

Here are some pictures of our summer. There aren't many because I've been too consumed with getting through this pregnancy, but here is what we have...

The airplane ride at our local Smith's...I finally gave in!

This is actually on Mother's day. The 2 most beautiful girls in the world have made me the happiest mommy!

Lily started swimming lessons. Her biggest accomplishment was to go all the way under water and she has been doing it all summer!

Grandma had an Amazing English Tea Party with all the granddaughters.

That's all for now. One day I'm going to focus on my writing and actually make this blog something fun to read. But as for now, I'm 36 weeks pregnant and it's all I can do to just get some pictures up before they get lost on our hard drive and we never see them again :)

Sophia Marie

Since I'm in blogging mode and Sophie is almost 1, I thought I'd tell just a little bit about her. I've loved being a mother since the day Lily was born, but it is so true that your love just grows and grows with each one. Since having Sophie, I have felt love for both she and Lily that I truly didn't know was possible. This baby just lights up my life. My mom calls her Sunshine, and it fits perfectly. The comment that I get most often from people is that she looks like she just observes and takes in absolutely everything. That is so true. She is always observing and I can't help but feel that her spirit is old and wise. I can feel that she is such a special little chosen spirit of our Heavenly Father and I feel so blessed that he gave her to me.
Sophie is so funny! Jon and laugh every day at her faces that she makes. Her Gigi once said "Sophie is the cure to any bad day". My sentiments exactly! I really never have a bad day with her around.


I'm pretty sure Jon's heart is going to stop when he sees that I've actually blogged. I'm making a new resolution to keep up on this blog so my children will have a record of their childhood. So here is what we've been doing lately...

We had some friends over to decorate Valentines treats and exchange Valentines

Lily was in Heaven

All the party people!

New Years Eve
Our friends Zack and Katie. We can always count on them for a fun indulgent dinner.

Christmas Eve

Sitting on the stairs waiting to see if Santa Came!

Sophie got a little Kitchen

Lily's beloved Dollhouse. Santa Delivered!

And so we will blog...

Well, I guess I shouldn't feel like I need to "perform" on this blog. It should just be a good place to put up memories and photos and have it be a good family record. Thanks for the reminder.

Well I haven't posted these photos yet... I love them. They capture Sophie so perfectly. Here little personality is such a hoot. She has 8 teeth. She is 10 months old. Only recently mastered the art of sitting up, although she still tumbles backward every now and then. She WILL NOT crawl... and to be honest, we are ok with this. One less little person getting into things. We just hope that she crawls by her first birthday :)

Without further adieu... here are her latest shots.

Also, we have to give credit to Tiffany Johnson for taking these photos. She is INCREDIBLE. If you are looking for a photographer for your kids and you live in SOCAL check her out here:
